Face The Facts!!!

Our leader's blathering about "extremism" & "radicalism" is unmitigated excrement. What they label extreme is the standard of Islam. Most people do not know what is in Islam's canon of scripture & tradition, nor would they understand it if they did.

The terrible facts are exposed in documents published by the Muslim Student Assn., Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and numerous Islamic organizations.

We are told that offensive Jihad is an insignificant artifact of "extremism". Muslims are told something else, in every Goddamn Mosque, Masjid & Madrassa.

190. And fight in the Way of Allâh[1] those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors. [This Verse is the first one that was revealed in connection with Jihâd, but it was supplemented by another (9:36)].

[1] (V.2:190) Al-Jihâd (holy fighting) in Allâh’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islâm and is one of its pillar (on which it stands). By Jihâd Islâm is established, Allâh’s Word is made superior, (His Word being Lâ ilaha illallâh which means none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh), and His Religion (Islâm) is propagated. By abandoning Jihâd (may Allâh protect us from that) Islâm is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihâd is an obligatory duty in Islâm on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.
Narrated ‘Abdullâh bin Mas‘ûd رضي الله عنه: I asked Allâh’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم "O Allâh’s Messenger! What is the best deed?" He replied, "To offer the Salât (prayers) at their early fixed stated times." I asked, "What is next in goodness?" He replied, "To be good and dutiful to your parents." I further asked, "What is next in goodness?" He replied, "To participate in Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause." I did not ask Allâh’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more. (Sahih Al-Bukhâri, Vol.4, Hadîth No.41).
The material in brackets & parenthesis was provided by the translators to clarify the scripture. It is derived from various tafsir [exegis]. 2:190 refers to defensive Jihad, but take close look at the translator's footnote on this ayat. Since its length and detail exceed your attention span, I will excerpt the most vital clauses.
  • [Jihad is ] given the utmost importance in Islâm and is one of its pillar
  • By Jihâd
    • Islâm is established
    • Allâh’s Word is made superior
    • His Religion (Islâm) is propagated
  • By abandoning Jihâd
    • Islâm is destroyed
    • the Muslims fall into an inferior position
    • their honour is lost
    • their lands are stolen
    • their rule and authority vanish
  • Jihâd is an obligatory duty in Islâm on every Muslim
Where did they get those ideas about abandoning Jihad? I linked it to an ahadith which makes the matter crystal clear. Doubting that you will follow up, I quote it in full.
Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

I added emphasis to the font to make the critical phrases stand out and catch your attention. Trade Jihad for farming, and Allah will curse you. There can be no doubt of the meaning of this Islamic tradition.

Lest you doubt that offensive Jihad is the standard of Islam, not a deviation, I will quote the ayat which sanctify it.
2:216. Jihâd [1] (holy fighting in Allâh’s cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.
8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism, i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world[1]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.[2]
9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah [2] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
8:65. O Prophet (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundreds, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.
What did Muhammad say outside the Mosque, when he was not revealing new messages from Satan?
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
Your blood & property are not sacred to Muslims until you become a Muslim. Open season is declared on you! There is no bag limit. The Muslim must only give 20% off the top to Moe or his Caliph.
And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger,...
But I'm a liar, one who distorts, perverts & mis-translates Islamic scripture. Yeah, right. Ibn Kathir, the greatest of Koranic exegetes, mis-translated, misinterpreted distorted & perverted Islam.
And Al-Misri, who compiled the all purpose go to handbook of Islamic law: Reliance of the Traveler, misinterpreted & distorted Allah's commands, too.

BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) 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 (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad

The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi' (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

That text comes from a search of Reliance of the Traveler, using Al Muhaddith's search engine I can't link to the search results, but I did link to a plain text file containing the same information.

Islamic law mandates making war upon Jews & Christians and all other peoples. Somewhat ambiguous; can we get a clarification?

One must go on jihad (i.e. warlike razzias or raids) at least once a year […] one may use a catapult against them [non-Muslims] when they are in a fortress, even if among them are women and children.
al-Ghazali, d. 1111, shafi’i, sufi. Kitab al-Wagiz fi fiqh madhab al-imam al-Safi’i (Beirut 1979), s. 186, 190-1, 199-200, 202-3, övers. Michael Schub.

al-Ghazali was a Sufi, and Sufi are supposed to be spiritually oriented, mystical & peaceful. Perhaps we need to consult a Sunni.
Al-Shafi'i (God have mercy on him) said: "The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims' interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse." He said: "If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said."
Sufi & Sunni Agree: the Caliph must attack us at least once each year. It's a requirement of Islamic law, not a deviation from standard Islam.

But terrorism; surely it must be haram. Allah could not sanction that, could he? Only damn fools believe that!
3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers).
8:12. (Remember) when your Lord revealed to the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."

13. This is because they defied and disobeyed Allâh and His Messenger. And whoever defies and disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, then verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment.

14. This is (the torment), so taste it; and surely for the disbelievers is the torment of the Fire.
But surely that must be allegory, not something they'd ever perform. Yeah, right.
33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers), Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.
Is this confirmed?
. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
Now you know that the elected leaders of Western Civilization are damned liars, who chant "peace, peace" where there is no peace and declare the enemy of all mankind to be our steadfast ally. What are you going to do with this new found knowledge? Will you conceal it, keep it private, shove it to the back of your mind and forget it? Or will you join me in sharing it? The choice is yours. If you want your children & grand children to live in peace, prosperity & freedom, you will join me in propagating knowledge of the evil which seeks to subjugate them. If you give a blessing, you will latch onto this issue like a pit bull and shake it in the world's face until they take due notice and govern themselves accordingly.
