Islam 101 For PoliticiansThis page is dedicated to the education of office holders and candidates for office so that they may speak, think, legislate and decide based on reliable factual information about Islam.
The number of informed citizens is growing. You will offend us if you pontificate from the pillar of ignorance as President G. W. Bush did. The last thing we want to hear is "Islam is a great religion of peace." and its variants including ignorant bloviation about "extremism", "extremists", "radicals" & "radicalism".
If you say anything about Islam, make sure that what you say is true and verifiable. Be ready with citations to Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, biography, exegesis & jurisprudence. This web page exists to ease that task for you.
Ignorant liars tell us that Islam "is a religion of peace". It is neither; it is an all encompassing way of life, including a religious component. The "original religion" of Islam is Jihad. Jihad is "war against non-Muslims". Terrorism is an intrinsic sacrament of Islam. Believers are only those who "fight in Allah's cause". Allah's cause is making Islam dominant. Jihad an-Nafs, which CAIR crows about, is deprecated. Its about conquering the world, not doing your job, raising your children, keeping fit or blancing your budget on a shoestring.
You will discover a great deal of redundancy in my writing as well as in Islam's canon. You can safely skim over many of the variant verses and ahadith. Where context is important, I link to sources that display multiple verses. Bold blue underlined text is hyperlinked. You will find some internal links to pdf files in this page, along with external links.
Some of the quotes are fairly long due to the need for context. I generally use yellow highlighting to make the most critical clauses stand out. Unless otherwise noted, all bold, italic and color emphasis is added.
With the preliminaries out of the way, its time to dive in, beginning with the most important topic.
These are the most important ayat & ahadith related to terrorism: 3:151, 8:12,39,57,60,65,67, 9:5,29,38, 39,111,120,123, 33:26,27, 47:4,49:15, 59:2,13, 61:10-13; Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220. Allah said he would cast terror, did cast terror and commanded Muslims to engage in terrorism. He also promised a reward for acts of terrorism. Moe said that he was made victorious with terror. You can find those quotes and much more in two blog posts included for reference. Just skim over the redundant parts.
Every year, the UN resolves that we ain't allowed to associate or equate terrorism with Islam. When they do, I contumaciously stick it up their snouts, book chapter and verse. Two of my best responses are included below. In them you will find quotes from the Qur'an, hadith, & Sira that establish the connection beyound doubt. Moe terrified his victims by barbarian rapine, extortion letters, assassinations and malicious destruction of property.
JihadThe word denotes striving; extreme exertion. Muslims will swear that Jihad is divided into Jihad Akbar & Jihad Asghar. Al-Misri, in "Reliance Of The Traveller", Book o, Chapter 9, informs us that the so called greater Jihad against one's ego and temptations is deprecated, that the hadith on which the claim is based is unfounded. He defines Jihad as "war against non-Muslims".
Click through to Chapter 9 and read through o9.14. O9.1 describes the communal obligation to perform offensive jihad in every year. O9.8 tells us that the caliph makes war on Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until we are subjugated & submit to extortion. It gives Surah At-Taubah 9.29 as its spiritual basis.
Reliance o9.1 stops short of full clarity. Imam Al-Shafi'i is paraphrased in an obtuse manner. To see his fatwa in a more easily comprehensible form, read page 18 of "The Book Of Jihad". For full clarity in the matter of offensive Jihad being undertaken on Islamic initiative, without provocation, see pages 140-141 of the second volume of Hedaya.
Each of the six canonical hadith collections has a book of Jihad. I disrespectfully invite Dhimmis, LibTards & Muslims to visit http://www.sunnah.com/ to search for evidence of Jihad an-Nafs and bring it back in a comment. Its all about conquest.
The Qur'an does not define Jihad. It uses terms such as "fight" and "strive hard with your wealth and your lives". It also mentions injury and death in Jihad. Please tell me how one gets injured or killed in Jihad an-Nafs. Hilali & Khan, in their footnote to 2.190, define Jihad and list its benefits along with the costs of abandoning it.
These embedded pdf files contain the most important quotes pertaining to Jihad.

Eelemosynary, Spritual & BeneficentThose words describe legitimate religions. They do not describe Islam. Islam is mercenary: its all about Moe's personal emolument. Here is the short course: Mercenary Mission.
Islamic MisogynyTo Islam, women are chattle: buy'em and own 'em, up to four plus all the slaves you can capture and keep. They are like prisoners or domestic animals, for your pleasure. Don't beat your wife as you would beat your slave girl. Click here to see the crucial details.
Shari'ahI have shown you the crucial parts of Islamic law regarding Jihad. That alone is sufficient to condemn it. But there is more. Islamic law is incompatible with the Constitution with its discrimination and corporal punishments.
The Shari'ah of marriage & divorce stand out as egregious violations, as does the Shari'ah of homosexuality. But one provision of Islamic law directly affects you: if it was enforced here, you would be disqualified from holding office!
Islamic law prescribes the death penalty for sodomy. Islamic law permits a Muslim to compel his daughter to marry. Divorce is accomplished by tripple talaq; say it and its done on the third iteration. A Christian, divorced by a Muslim, can not obtain custody of her children. Wanna take it to court? You can't. And a Muslima's testimony is worth half a Muslim's. Read the qualifications for witnesses.
Allah ≠ JehovahIf there is only one God, they must be the same, right? Wrong! I can prove it!!
Islam is DemonicIf Allah ain't God, who is he? No need to guess, I found the evidence.
