Innocence of Muslims Appeal Information

This information comes by email from AFA. In it we learn about some amicus briefs. AFA also affords us an opportunity to send emails urging the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear the case en banc.    I have done my part to promote the preservation o the first amendment. Now its time for you to join in.

Netflix and other American corporate interests ask 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals NOT to make First Amendment exception for Islamists by forcing Google to remove Muhammad movie.  Please send your email to 43 appellate court judges.
Click here to send your email asking 43 appellate court judges to affirm First Amendment over Islamist exception.
Florida Family Association sent out several email alerts to report that a 3 judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals had reversed a lower court order that denied a plaintiff’s demand that remove the controversial video “Innocence of Muslims.” Defendant Google (owns petitioned the appellate court to rehear the case en banc by all of the justices in the 9th US Circuit.   Florida Family Association’s emails alerts encouraged readers to send emails urging the forty three 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals justices to affirm the First Amendment rights that all Americans cherish by reversing the panel’s troubled ruling and affirming the district court’s decision.  The original email history is posted in part below.
Several American corporations and internet industry leaders subsequently filed Amicus Briefs asking the appellate court to rehear the case en banc and/or affirm the District Court’s finding that Ms. Garcia has no copyright to assert.
NETFLIX Amicus Brief states in part:  Ms. Garcia’s claim thus rests on air: she has no underlying copyright to assert. But rather than accept the result of that analysis — that Mr. Youssef’s protected speech, odious as it may be, cannot be vetoed by Ms. Garcia suing YouTube — the majority opinion bends copyright to the breaking point to achieve rough justice, and then optimistically suggests that the damage it does will be limited to edge cases. Netflix does not share that optimism.  Accordingly, Netflix joins Appellants in urging rehearing en banc, and affirmance of the District Court’s finding that Ms. Garcia has no copyright to assert. 
Adobe Systems et al Amicus Brief states in part:  Because the panel decision conflicts with established copyright law protecting online services from monitoring burdens, is overbroad and threatens First Amendment interests, and is unworkable as a practical matter and therefore dangerous to services, the Court should rehear the appeal en banc and vacate the decision and injunction.
Internet Law Professors Amicus Brief states in part:  On its face, Garcia’s case is not about the “right to forget” historical truths, attempts to squelch political criticism, or attempts to scrub unflattering but protected commentary from review sites.  Nevertheless, the legal arguments raised by Garcia in this case are virtually identical to the arguments made by plaintiffs who want to suppress the publication of truthful information about them in other contexts. Plaintiffs are already trying to turn copyright into a general-purpose tool to scrub truthful content, thwarting Congress’ intent in enacting Section 230’s immunity.  
Google’s Petition for rehearing en banc states in part: The panel airbrushed this problem by suggesting that “copyright interests in the vast majority of films” are covered by contract and the work-for-hire doctrine.  ADD11. But most of the millions of amateur filmmakers who upload videos to the Internet do not have bulletproof written agreements. And even for professional filmmakers, the majority’s assurances ring hollow. Although many try to obtain releases from participants, perfection is impossible and long-term retention and location of these agreements is often difficult. Stay Br. 36-37.  The majority fell back on implied licenses. ADD13-15. But that creates its own difficulties. By shifting to a case-by-case implied-license regime with intent requirements and the like, the majority’s system allows actors to “claim copyright and set up a fact dispute that will be hard to predict and expensive to resolve.”  Eric Goldman, In Its “Innocence of Muslims” Ruling, the Ninth Circuit is Guilty of Judicial Activism, Technology & Marketing Law Blog (Feb. 27, 2014).  6  That will put YouTube and services like it in an intractable bind. Faced with a takedown notice from a minor player in a film, platforms will need to either defer to the copyright claim or attempt the impossible task of untangling the chains of title for countless video clips. And although some services may choose to risk suits, they on balance “will err on the side of actors’ assertions rather than do the fact investigation.” Id.  That understandable reticence will chill speech.  
Clearly Corporate America is very concerned about the consequences of allowing the 3 judge panel’s ruling to stand.  Their ruling could unearth countless frivolous claims in the future that are motivated to censor otherwise First Amendment protected speech.   As Google states, rather than fight these claims in costly court battles, web sites will buckle under and remove the content being protested.

Now the full 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals will reconsider the appeal from the district court as well as their panel's troubled ruling.  They need to know that American's treasure their First Amendment and do not want special exceptions for Islamists.
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to the forty three 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals justices urging them to affirm the First Amendment rights that all Americans cherish by reversing the panel’s troubled ruling and affirming the district court’s decision.  Florida Family Association is taking a position in this case based upon judicial principle and without regard to the parties involved or content of the movie.

By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Google on February 26, 2014 to remove the controversial movie “Innocence of Muslims” from This movie that sparked protests across the Muslim world “depicts Muhammad as a feckless philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse, among other overtly insulting claims that have caused outrage.   In a 13 minute 51 second trailer, the Islamic prophet is made to look like a murderer and adulterer as well” according to
Cindy Lee Garcia filed a law suit against Google on October 17, 2012 seeking a restraining order that would require to remove “Innocence of Muslims” from their web service.  Garcia claimed that she had a copyright for a five second video that was incorporated into the film and that she had not given permission for its use in the movie.  She also claimed that she would suffer irreparable harm if the movie were not removed from access on the World Wide Web.
Michael W. Fitzgerald, District Judge, United States District Court for the Central District of California issued an order on November 30, 2012 DENYING Garcia’s petition to the court (in part) because:
  • Garcia failed to “establish that she is likely to succeed on the merits, that she is likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief, that the balance of equities tips in her favor, and that an injunction is in the public interest.’” 
  • The Film was posted for public viewing on YouTube on July 2, 2012 – five months ago.  Given this five-month delay, Garcia has not demonstrated that the requested preliminary relief would prevent any alleged harm.
  • As was the case in Aalmuhammed v. Lee , 202 F.3d 1227 (9th Cir. 2000), the Film “is a copyrightable work, and it is undisputed that the movie was intended by everyone involved with it to be a unitary whole.”  Id. at 1231. Additionally, a copyright in a work “vests initially in the author or authors of the work. The authors of a joint work are coowners of copyright in the work.” 17 U.S.C. § 201(a). 
  • Garcia does not argue that she is the sole author of the Film, nor does she argue that the Film was a joint work of which she was a co-author. According to the United States Supreme Court, the “author” is the “person to whom the work owes its origin and who superintended the whole work.” Aalmuhammed, 202 F.3d at 1233 (citing Burrow-Giles Lithographic Co. v. Sarony, 111 U.S. 53, 61, 4 S. Ct. 279, 28 L. Ed. 349 (1884)). By Garcia’s own allegations and argument, she does not meet this standard with respect to the Film. Furthermore, Garcia concedes that she does not have joint authorship over the Film or joint ownership of the copyright in the Film. (See Reply at 12 n.11).
Plaintiff Garcia appealed District Judge Fitzgerald’s ruling to the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals.  By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the appellate court reversed the lower court ruling.  The panel ruled that Garcia did have a copyright claim to her five second segment, could suffer irreparable harm and ordered Google to remove the video from  Chief Judge Alex Kozinski said Garcia was likely to prevail on her copyright claim, and having already faced “serious threats against her life,” faced irreparable harm absent an injunction.
In a statement, Google said:“We strongly disagree with this ruling and will fight it."  The film has now become an important part of public debate, Google argued, and should not be taken down.  "Our laws permit even the vilest criticisms of governments, political leaders, and religious figures as legitimate exercises in free speech,” Google said.  Google’s statement indicates that they believe that the motivation behind the appellate panel ruling has more to do with the negative portrayal of Muhammad than it does with the Chief Judge’s newly created doctrine regarding partial copy right.  The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruling in Garcia vs Google appears to be more about appeasing Islamists than it does about defending the fullness of the First Amendment, following the rules of judicial construction and respecting established legal precedent.
A sua sponte request filed on March 6, 2014 indicates that the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals will RECONSIDER the appeal En Banc before the full appellate court.  The parties to the litigation were instructed to file their briefs with the court by 5:00 PM Pacific time, Wednesday, March 12, 2014.

Boko Haram: DAMN!!! Wipe Them From the Earth.

"It's absolutely something that we of the American Muslim community and Muslims worldwide condemn because it's not something that represents our faith," said Adam Soltani. - See more at:

"This group, Boko Haram, is doing something that is completely antithetical to the teachings of the Islamic faith and the Islamic faith traditions," said Soltani. - See more at:

    Here is a Muslima citing traditional practice and the advice of Imams. She wants Kuwait to buy slaves from Chechen rebels so that her husband can buy some and be free from the temptations of adultery.  Sexual abuse of slaves is not adultery in Islam. 

    "Right hands possess" appears frequently in the Qur'an.  It is a reference to slaves.
    Allah commands Muslims not to engage in unlawful sex.  Two classes of sex partners are lawful for Muslims: wives and slaves. 
70:29. And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts from illegal sexual acts) .

70:30. Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed,

70:31. But whosoever seeks beyond that, then it is those who are trespassers.

    Moe permitted his companions to rape captive women. 
Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:
Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:
I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, "We went out with Allah's Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Apostle who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist."
    But Islam forbids attacking innocent people. Attacking women and children is forbidden.  Yeah, right.   Only Muslims are innocent, everyone else is guilty of waging war against Allah and Moe, subject to exile, mutilation or execution as per 5.33.
    But Moe abolished slavery!  Yeah, right.  Moe enslaved and sold slaves. Lets see how much he hated the institution of slavery. 
Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 46, Number 711:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
A man amongst us declared that his slave would be freed after his death. The Prophet called for that slave and sold him. The slave died the same year.
    But Moe commanded freeing slaves.  Yeah, right.  Free a believing slave as an expiation for sin. 

4:92. It is not for a believer to kill a believer except (that it be) by mistake, and whosoever kills a believer by mistake, (it is ordained that) he must set free a believing slave and a compensation (blood money, i.e Diya) be given to the deceased's family, unless they remit it. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you and he was a believer; the freeing of a believing slave (is prescribed), and if he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty of mutual alliance, compensation (blood money - Diya) must be paid to his family, and a believing slave must be freed. And whoso finds this (the penance of freeing a slave) beyond his means, he must fast for two consecutive months in order to seek repentance from Allâh. And Allâh is Ever All­Knowing, All­Wise.

    Muslims assure us that attacking and enslaving children does not represent Islam and is antithetical to Islam. The assurance, as every word that pssses a Muslim's lips, is false.  Get a clue, God bless you. 
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.

Moe waged war on a Jewish settlement, killing a group and captivating another.  Who did he captivate?  Tafsir Ibn Kathir has the answer for you.  Here is your clue. 
(a group you killed, and a group you made captives.) Those who were killed were their warriors, and the prisoners were their children and women.

    Moe was a barbarian warlord, not a divine prophet.  He dictated and dispatched extortion letters to his intended victims. One of them stands out for its extreme clarity.  It holds a vital clue for you.  I have added emphasis to several crucial sentences. He ordered them to capitulate, threatening to kill them and enslave their orphans.

Volume 1, Parts II.73.3
They said: The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, wrote to Yuhannah Ibn
Rubbàh and (other) chiefs of the people of Aylah: You are safe. I praise Allah before
you; there is no God but He. I will not fight against you unless I write to you (in
advance). So, join the fold of Islam or [P. 29] pay the jizyah. Obey Allah and His
Apostle and the messengers of His Apostle, honour them and dress them in nice
clothes, other than the uniform of the ghazis. Provide Zayd with good clothes. If my
messengers will be pleased with you, I shall also be pleased with you. The jizyah is a
known thing. If you like that, peace might prevail over the land and sea; you should
obey Allah and His Apostle. You will not be required to pay dues you have been
paying to the Arabs and the 'Ajamis, and you will pay the dues to Allah and His
Apostle. If you send them (my messengers) back and do not please them, I shall not
accept anything from you, and shall wage war against you and make your young
ones captive and shall stay your elders. Verily, I am the Apostle of Allah to
communicate the truth. I believe in Allah, His Books and His Apostles. I believe in
Masih Ibn Maryam (Messiah son of Mary) who is His word, to be His Apostle. Come
to me before you face the evil. I have given advice to my messengers about your
affairs. Pay three wasag (Wasaq is a camel-loadequal to sixty sa`s, each sa` being
equal to four mudds, and each mudd is equal to 1-1/3 lbs., thus a wasaq is equal to
nearly four maunds of Pakistan.) of barley to Harmalah. Verily, Harmalah has
recommended your case. Had there been no Allah and this (recommendation) I
would not have had any correspondence with you and you would have seen armies
marching against you. If you obey my messenger, verily, Allah is your defender and
(also) Muhammad and those who follow him. Verily, my messengers are Shurahbil,
Ubayyi, Harmalah and Hurayth lbn Zayd al-Tá'i. If they conclude a treaty, I shall
approve of it and you will be under the guarantee of Allah and Allah's Apostle
Muhammad. Salàm to you. If you obey, you should arrange provisions for the people
of Maqna to go to their land. 

    Boko Haram is Islam.  Al Ikhwan is Islam. Al-Qaeda is Islam. "Its Islam, Stupid!".  They are burning homes, churches and businesses wherever they can with impunity.  In Pakistan, Nigeria, Central African Republic, Mali, Syria and Egypt. They do it because Allah commands it; promises them eternity in his celestial bordello if they comply and threatening them with eternal damnation in his fire pit if they shirk. 

    Three weeks passed since those girls were abducted. We can only imagine the horrors they have endured. Obama, Michelle, etc. et al do not care. If they cared, those girls would have had armed guards and their attackers would be rotting in the hot Nigerian sun. 

    This problem has one solution: free the earth from the infestation of Islam. The depredations will continue so long as there are Muslims on the face of the earth.  Arm the indigenous Christians. Give them guns, ammunition, explosives, transportation, training and close air support.

The Defamation of Jesus Christ

Islam claims Jesus Christ as a Priophet of Islam and claims to love him more than Christians do.  The reality is starkly different from the claim.

I have collected for you, in one place, the relevant ayat, ahadith and tafsir which expose Islam to well deserved ridicule through its defamation of Jesus.

Originally posted at Freedom Ain't Free, this vital post has been updated with corrected links.  It has been republished in pdf format so that you can embed it in your own blog and share it as an email attachment. 

And those claims that Jesus is Muslim:  you know shit when you smell it and Islam when you read the Qur'an.  Jesus walked the earth 500+ years before Moe, and Moe was the first Muslim.  Jesus could not be a Muslim.

6:162. Say (O Muhammad ): "Verily, my Salât (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allâh, the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

6:163. "He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am the first of the uslims." 
   It is bad enough that Muslims co-opt Christ, but they go farther: they make him out to be a genocideal warlord who will lead them in the final genocide.

 Here is the evidence, from Islam's canon of scripture, tradition and exegesis.  Share it with your clergy, embed it in your blogs and print it for distribution at ecumenical and inter-faith dialogues.

What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims?

What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims?

What's Wrong With Islam/Muslims? [This blog post has received 4537 views since it was published four years ago.  Since then, links have been broken by web site changes and new resources have been found.  This post was therefore supplanted by a new page, but it continues to get the hits while the new page does not.  I have therefore updated this post, repairing broken links and adding a few, notably to Ibn Sad's Sira and The Sealed Nectar to make more detailed information available to the reader.  ]

[Update commenced 03/28/'17: several external links have been broken by site changes. I am therefore replacing links to defunct  hadith sites with direct links to texts in the Internet Archive.  I am also adding accessory links in case of new breaks and to make more information available.

Mercenary Mission

    Islam was contrived for the purpose of its founder's personal emolument & empowerment through accrual of spoils & dominion through perpetual war.  Three ayat in Surah Al-Anfal make this matter crystal clear.  Four ahadith confirm it beyond all doubt. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war. Say: "The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger." So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers. Alternative Links

    The spoils are for Allah and Moe; how many stolen sheep, camels & dates can an impotent stone idol eat?  How many captured women can it rape?

8:41. 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, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad ) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allâh is Able to do all things. Alternative Links


8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. Alternative Links

Allah wants genocide: "great slaughter", Moe wants ransom money.  One ahadith omitted from Khan's translation of Sahih Bukhari speaks volumes about Moe's arrogance & avarice, I quote from Aisha Bewley's translation.

Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

    This saying was Bowdlerized out of the book upon which the USC-MSA hadith database was based.  CMJE no longer links to it  and  the link at Quran explorer also fails.   This is page 108 of Volume 4 of Hilali's translation. Take a close look at the  hadith and the first footnote at the bottom of the page . 

  Update: since  writing this post I have discovered an interesting page in Ibn Khaldun's Muquaddimah wherein he describes Arab culture as  "Savage" and tells us that Arabs got their sustenance by plunder. I have highlighted the pertinent paragraphs for clarity.  Compare these  pages and  observe the pattern they form. Arabs found their sustenance under the shadow of their lances; Moe found his provision  under the shade of his spear. Got a clue yet? 

Sahih Bukhari Vol. 4  pg. 108 Muquaddimah pg.199


Moe got his income with his spear: by raiding camel caravans and Jewish settlements. Later we will see Moe's 'command' and the threat he made in conjunction with it.   Allah gave Moe a special privilege not given to anyone else: accrual of spoils. 

3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. [Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331]  Alternative Link


Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us. Alternative links

    Allah was very generous: he gave Moe the keys to the treasures of the world and he made Moe wealthy through conquests. 

Sahih 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).

Alternative Link

    Narrated Abu Huraira: #2298

    Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah's Apostle he would ask, "Has he left anything to repay his debt?" If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend's funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests, he said, "I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs. "

Islam is aggressively violent, by design; irreparably. I quote Islamic law.

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.[Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.1]

Jihad is something  Muslims must do against non-Muslims every year. Exactly what is it?

Chapter O: Jihad No alternative source

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.

What is its practical application?

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad  No alternative source

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…


The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book,…

How does that apply to the United States of America?

Between  1779 and 1815, the Barbary pirates were attacking America’s merchant marine, seizing boats, enslaving their crews and stealing cargo. They demanded payment of tribute for safe passage.

In 1786 Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman or (Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). They asked him by what right he extorted money and took slaves. Jefferson reported to Secretary of State John Jay, and to the Congress:

The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven. [3]

Allah said:

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 ]….

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 (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 with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. Alternate Links

Muhammad 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. Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387  Alternative Link

Caliph Umar’s general told the Persians:

…Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.” Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386  Alternative Link

Compare the answer of Sidi Haji Abdrahaman to Bukhari4.53.386:

  • ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya
    • that it was their right and duty to make war upon them
  • Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise
    • every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven.
  • whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master
    • to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.

Compare what Allah said to what Moe said:

  • fight them
  • Fight against those who
    • I have been ordered to fight the people

Compare Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9, paragraph 8 to Rodwell’s translation of 9:29:


    Allah said that he would cast terror & did cast terror. Allah commanded Moe to treat victims harshly so as to terrorize other prospective victims and build up military strength to threaten and terrify them.  Allah said that the local Jews were more afraid of Moe and his army than of himself. Moe said that he was made victorious with terror.  Allah, ever generous to his slaves, guarantees them extra credit towards an upgrade in his Celestial Bordello for any step taken to injure or enrage us.

What’s Wrong With Muslims?

If they believe and are faithful, they obey Allah’s commands by joining the Jihad, striving hard with their lives and their wealth. If not called to fight, they support Jihad with Zakat. How did the Holy Land Foundation raise $13M for Hamas?

8:2 The believers are only those who, when Allâh is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur’ân) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone); Alternate Links  

    [The first six verses of this surah are somewhat cryptic. Use the search engine at yet another Quran browser, linked in the  surah/ayat number above, to search  for "go out" and "spend"  to see how those words are used in context of Jihad.]

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success . Alternate Links

61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

  • They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.

That’s what Muslims do; they kill.  That’s what’s wrong with Muslims: they worship and obey a bloodthirsty demon who commands them to subjugate us.

Allah's Threat & Promise

  •     To over simplify a little,  Muslims go to:
    • Jihad & Jannah
    • or
    • Jannahm.
    What's your preference: spending half the day copulating with two beautiful virgins who grow new hymens and up to 70 Jewish and Chistian women "taken from the fire" or having your hide burned off and replaced, drinking boiling water and eating poisonus nettles?  So you'd rather go to Jihad than sit at home then. 

Allah's threat

9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2497:
Narrated AbuUmamah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warrior's family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity. Yazid ibn Abdu Rabbihi said in his tradition: 'before the Day of Resurrection".

Allah's Promise

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. Alternative Links

2787. Narrated AbU Hurairah  I
heard Allah's Messenger jW, saying, "The
example of a Mujahid in Allah's Cause - and
Allah knows better who really strives in His
Cause - is like a person who observes Saum
(fast) and offers Salat (prayer) continuously.
Allah guarantees that He will admit the
Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is
killed, otherwise He will return him to his
home safely with rewards and war booty."

    Jihad will never wnd while Muslims continue to believe in Allah,. his threat and promise!


  • I have Muslim friends; nice people, well behaved.
    • Muslims are explicitly commanded, in several ayat, not to befriend Kuffar. I will cite one of them.
    • 60:1. O you who believe! Take not My enemies and your enemies (i.e. disbelievers and polytheists, etc.) as friends, showing affection towards them, while they have disbelieved in what has come to you of the truth (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism, this Qur’ân, and Muhammad ), and have driven out the Messenger (Muhammad ) and yourselves (from your homeland) because you believe in Allâh your Lord! If you have come forth to strive in My Cause and to seek My Good Pleasure, (then take not these disbelievers and polytheists, etc., as your friends). You show friendship to them in secret, while I am All-Aware of what you conceal and what you reveal. And whosoever of you (Muslims) does that, then indeed he has gone (far) astray, (away) from the Straight Path .
  • Most Muslims don’t engage in Jihad.
    • Yet. They haven’t been called by their Imam or Mullah. The Ummah is large and the battlefronts are relatively small. Once a sufficient number have answered the call, the rest are relieved unless an emergency occurs.
      • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 311:

        Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

        The Prophet said, on the day of the Conquest of Mecca, “There is no migration (after the Conquest), but Jihad and good intentions, andwhen you are called for Jihad, you should immediately respond to the call.”

      • Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2497:
        Narrated AbuUmamah:
        The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warrior’s family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity. Yazid ibn Abdu Rabbihi said in his tradition: ‘before the Day of Resurrection”.
  • Jihad is the Muslim's struggle against his ego and temptations.
  • Jihad is an anachronism, only applicable to Moe’s lifetime.

      Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

      The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

      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.

Take a cold, clear eyed second look at Abu Dawud 23.3455.

  • give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you,
    • Allah will curse the Muslims if they abandon making war in favor of productive pursuits. 
  • until you return to your original religion.
    • Jihad; making war is their religion!!!!!

Sahih Muslim 19.4327 Reliance Of The Traveller
    Links to this book are short lived. I found this link in  February of '17 and doubt that it will last long. You can purchase hard copy from Amazon.

Clear as mud, ain't it?  Read it again a few times, then read page 18 of The Book Of Jihad, which brings the fiqh of Jihad together in one handy volume of less than  190 pages. Pay particular attention to the fatwa of Imam al-Shafi'i!

Book Of Jihad pg. 18
  • These books are more adjuncts to Reliance than substitutes for it. Download and save them for future reference.
    • Risala is the fiqh of the Maliki school of Islamic law. Best printed and scanned, it is also brief and easy to read.  Jihad is covered in Chapter 30.
    • Hedaya is the fiqh of the Hanafi school of Islamic law.  Poorly printed & scanned with an archaic font and arcane vocabulary, it is turgid and difficult reading but the section on Jihad  beginning on page 139 of the second volume, is absolutely vital to understanding Islam! 
o  Hedaya and Risala do not explicitly define Jihad. The Book Of Jihad defines it on pages 8&9. A Summary Of Islamic Jurisprudence defines Jihad on page 472.  The Qur'an does not explicitly define Jihad, but Hilali & Khan defined it in terms of a cost/benefit analysis in a footnote to 2.190 on page 39. A similar definition is included in a footnote on page 1534 of Sahih Bukhari. Compare the glossary entry on page 3700 of Sahih Muslim to the definition of Maghazi on pg 3710: no holy war, but holy battle? ! 

o9.8  While they are not exactly equivalent, Risala and Hedaya  are as close as we can come to Reliance. Turn to them if the links to Reliance are broken.

  • The element of continuous Jihad is found in two ahadith:
    • #2532 is regarded as daef [weak].
    • #24384 is regarded as sahih [authentic].
      • Both contain the element of continuous Jihad.
      • It is codified in Shari'ah:
      • Reliance Of The Traveller o9.1
