PJ Media quotes Colin Powell in the context of Donald Trump's Muslim ban proposal and the 'birther issue'.
Are you aware of the communal and individual obligations to perform Jihad? Are you intelligent enough to learn about them by reading the relevant Islamic law? Offensive Jihad is obigatory on the Ummah and must be performed in every year if possible. Neglecting it puts those aware of the fard in a state of sin. When we counter attack, the fard becomes personal, individually binding on the Ummah.
Eric Robert Rudolph & Dylan Roof are not typical of insane people. Their acts are rare compared to those of Muslims. They do not pose a real and proximate threat on the scope of Islamic terrorism.
What do Muslims believe? What does Allah require them to do? Jihad is ordained for Muslims 2.216. Hilali & Khan define it in their footnote to 2.190. The Reliance Of The Traveller defines it as "War against non-Muslims" in o9.0.
Muslims are commanded to strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives: 4.95, 9.19, 9.41, 9.73, 9.86 & 61.11.
Muslims are commanded to wage war against pagans until only Allah is worshiped: 8.39, against Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and submit to extortion: 9.29 and against the disbelievers nearest to them: 9.123.
Those Jihad imperatives are offensive, not defensive. I disrespectfully direct deniers, dissenters & doubters to Islamic law to get a clue!
Allah said that he would and did cast terror. Allah commanded Muslims to strike terror into prospective victims by harsh treatment of conquered people and to terrify prospective victims by maximizing their military might.
Allah awards Brownie Points for acts intended to injure or enrage us. Moe said that he was made victorious with terror.
So what? Most Muslims don't do that~yet; as their numbers grow sufficient to confer impunity, the violence will increase as it has in France. Believers do it! Believers fight in Allah's cause, killing and being killed. Believers are only those who fight in Allah's cause.
Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (O: the evidence for which is the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,"
and Allah Most High having said:
"Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah's path with their property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to each, Allah has promised great good" (Koran 4:95).
If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.
The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, "Jihad is a communal obligation," meaning upon the Muslims each year.
The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).
By Al-Misri in Reliance Of The Traveller o9.0
means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived
from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.
O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax
30.2a. An obligation
Jihad is an obligation which can be taken on by some of the people on behalf of others.
[By the words of the Almighty: "Those believers who stay behind – other than those forced by
necessity – are not the same as those who do jihad in the way of Allah." (4:95) Allah has promised
both good, ie. the best reward which is the Garden. There is mutawatir sunna that the Prophet sent
some people rather than others.]
30.2b. Inviting people to Islam first
And it is preferable, according to us, that the enemy are not fought until they have been invited
to the din of Allah except if they attack first.
Hedaya, Volume 2, page 143 confirms what we already know: Infidels must be invited to embrace Islam as a condition precedent to attack.
We can not obtain security without expelling and excluding Muslims; eliminating the enemy fifth column from our soil.
birther issueTake a long, close look at the so called long form certificate:
Carefully examine the certificate of live birth:
Where is the embossed state seal present on real birth certificates? Neither of those forgeries has the seal! Big damn deal! he has had seven and a half years to ruin the nation, succeeded pretty well, no court will touch the matter on its merits and Congress will not impeach the traitor so the issue is a diversion from what really matters including ridding the nation of Muslims to prevent future acts of Islamic terrorism.
