Ahmed Rehab Lies About AFDI Advertisement and Jihad

 Walid Shoebat embedded a brief WGN interview in which the al-taqiyya flows smoothly at a rapid pace. 

In any war between the civilized man and the savage support the civilized man.  Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.

When you say "defeat Jihad", Jihad being a central tenet of the Islamic  faith she's essentially saying " defeat all Muslims": defeat my kid, defeat my grandmother, defeat my neighbors, its a silly ad, its a racist ad in that sense, its incredibly misinformed.  Jihad for us is daily struggle against odds; against barriers, it is going to school, paying your tuition, paying your taxes, having two jobs to raise your kids; whatever it is that people go through, the  daily struggles in orderto come on top against the barriers, that's what Jihad is.

    Ahmed Rehab took a key word out of context and twisted it into a  pretzel.  The context of the bus advertisement is the Islamic reconquest of Israel: low intensity asymmetrical warfare carried out with suicide bombs, knives, axes, rifles, stones and unguided missiles. The reconquest operates by intimidation and piecemeal genocide.  Recently the intensity has increased, with hundreds of rockets launched over the border towards civilian residences and infrastructure. 

    If the murder of the Fogel family ain't a prime example of savagery, what would be?  In contrast, Israel uses guided missiles for precise attacks on identified targets. It is not Israel's fault that those targets are placed in densely populated areas for maximum propaganda value. 

    Rehab wants us to believe that Jihad means the daily struggle to survive and thrive, overcoming obstacles and barriers.  But that is not the context of AFDI's advertiosement. A Google search for Jihad turned up this: 


  1. (among Muslims) A war or struggle against unbelievers.
  2. The spiritual struggle within oneself against sin.


    The canonical text of the Noble Qur'an translation by Hilali & Khan contains one instance of jihad in Surah Al-Baqrah.

  • 2:216. Jihâd (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 kno

    A visit to Islam Awakened turns up 42 parallel translations of which Hilali & Khan is the only translation to use Jihad,. The others use  fighting, killing or warfare. 
   A visit to Corpus Qur'an turns up the Arabic word used in the original text. 

[the] fighting
N – nominative masculine noun
اسم مرفوع

Clicking the key word brings up a list of 180 occurrences of variants of qital in the Qur'an.  Examine a few specimens. 

(8:39:1) waqātilūhum And fight them وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّىٰ لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلَّهِ
(9:29:1) qātilū Fight قَاتِلُوا الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَلَا بِالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ
(9:123:4) qātilū Fight يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قَاتِلُوا الَّذِينَ يَلُونَكُمْ مِنَ الْكُفَّارِ

    Those three verses contain the primary Jihad imperatives in the Qur'an.  Many others contain one variant or another of "strive hard and fight", examine these.

  • 9:41. March forth, whether you are light (being healthy, young and wealthy) or heavy (being ill, old and poor), strive hard with your wealth and your lives in the Cause of Allâh. This is better for you, if you but knew.

  • 9:86. And when a Sûrah (chapter from the Qur'ân) is revealed, enjoining them to believe in Allâh and to strive hard and fight along with His Messenger, the wealthy among them ask your leave to exempt them (from Jihâd) and say, "Leave us (behind), we would be with those who sit (at home)."
and strive
CONJ – prefixed conjunction wa (and)
V – 2nd person masculine plural (form III) imperative verb
PRON – subject pronoun
الواو عاطفة
فعل أمر والواو ضمير متصل في محل رفع فاعل

Allah's cause  

    What is his cause? One hadith has the answer for us: it is to make Islam dominate the world. 

holy fighting

    What is it? What makes war holy?  The intention of pleasing Allah; fighting to make Islam dominate the word, not for fame, fortune or glory is the essential element.  I would slog through a great deal of text to find the primary reference, so just take my word for it.  Fighting in Allah's Cause is the essential element. 

    This question may also be answered by negative example: what profanes a holy war? The answer is found in another hadith:  embezzling the spoils, killing children and mutilating bodies.  The latter was taboo, the former two examples are equal because captive children were sold into slavery, property for Muslims.Breaking your pledge means fleeing in the face of the enemy. 

  • Sahih Muslim Muslim Book 019, Number 4294:
        It has been reported from Sulaiman b. Buraid through his father that when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) appointed anyone as leader of an army or detachment he would especially exhort him to fear Allah and to be good to the Muslims who were with him. He would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. ...



    Technically, the word means striving, struggle and extreme exertion.  But the legal definition is provided by Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.1: warfare against  infidels.  [Emphasis and links added.]

  • O9.0: Jihad

    (O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.

    ``We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.''

    The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:

    -1- ``Fighting is prescribed for you'' (Koran 2:216);

    -2- ``Slay them wherever you find them'' (Koran 4:89);

    -3- ``Fight the idolators utterly'' (Koran 9:36);

    and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

    ``I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah'';

    and the hadith reported by Muslim,

    ``To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.''Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

defeat all Muslims

    The expression in the advertisement was "defeat Jihad". The word "Muslims" does not appear in the adv. copy.    It calls for the defeat of Muslims waging war against civilized people. Are your kid, grand mother and neighbor engaged in war against Israel?

central tenet

    Why does Islam's scripture contain a chapter whose title means "Spoils of War" and another commanding repentance for not joining the ghazwat on Tabuk?  Why did Moe say that he was "commanded to fight the people until"?

highest peak

Then, he said, “Shall I not inform you of the head and pillar of the issue and the apex of
its hump?” I said, ‘Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (SAW) .” He said, “Its head is Islam, its
pillar is Salah and the apex of its hump is jihad.” Then he said, “Shall I not tell you about
the root of that”? I said, “Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (SAW)!” He held his tongue
and said, “Keep it in check.” I asked, “Shall we be taken to task for what we speak with
it”? He said, “May your mother weep at you, O Mu’adh! Will people be cast in hell on
their faces or on their nostrils except as the consequence of their tongues?”
[Ahmed 22-77,Ibn Majah 3973] {JamiaTirmidhi}

        Jihad is the highest peak of Islam, its most important doctrine. 

silly ad

    The advertisement was uttered and published to counter an advertisement which demanded cutting off all aid to Israel. Advocati8ng  the defense of innocent people under genocidal attack and defeati of savages thus engaged is not silly.  if it was not serious, you CAIR would not be bitching about it. 


    What race is Islam?  Rehab is an arab, Dougie Hooper is Caucasian; are they members of the same race as Siraj Wahhaj??  A member of any race can 'revert', becoming a Muslim, does he then change his race from Caucasian or Black to Muslim? 

    Where is race mentioned in the advertisement?  Is savage a race?  Are Arabs savages?


    The ignorant fools who believe Rehab's al-taqiyya are misinformed.  Those of us who have read the Qur'an & authentic hadith collections  and delved into Shari'ah are informed so that we are able to recognize and refute the spew of lies coming from Muslims.
