Summary: 

In this article we intend to supplement the following excellent discussion of Q. 9:5 by our dear brother Silas: The Verse of the Sword: Sura 9:5 and Jihad

Our purpose is to examine Q. 9:5 and 29 in light of the testimony of Muslim sources in order to see whether these texts refer to defensive jihad, e.g. fighting only those who attack and oppress Muslims. Or do these texts actually command Muslims to attack and/or subjugate the disbelievers in the context of offensive military warfare for the purpose of expanding Islam politically and geographically.

This female Muslim professor says rape is an allowable form of humiliation…

“The female prisoners of wars are ‘those whom you own.’ In order to humiliate them, they become the property of the army commander, or of a Muslim, and he can have sex with them just like he has sex with his wives.”

Summary: 

“Islamist” Muslim groups and community leaders hinder the fight against terror and are interested only in presenting Muslims “as victims” Britain’s most prominent Muslim lawyer has said. In an interview with the Times, Nazir Afzal warned that British Muslim organisations are “undermining” attempts to counter terrorism in the UK by spreading misinformation to discredit Prevent, the government’s anti-radicalisation programme.

Summary: 
  • The Dutch have officially been enjoying the feast of Pentecost since 1815, but the church wants it replaced by an official holiday on Eid-al-Fitr, the day marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

  • We are too tolerant to intolerance. We think that by allowing freedom to the enemies of freedom we prove to the world that we stand for freedom. But in reality, by refusing to draw boundaries to our tolerance, we are handing away our freedom.

  • If we want to remain the free and tolerant society which we used to be, we must realize that the West has a concrete identity. Our identity is not Islamic, but based on Judaism, Christianity and humanism. Our freedoms result from this identity.

Baroness Cox: “Of course, you immediately run the risk of being called ‘Islamophobic,’ but we speak the truth”

JUNE 2, 2017 10:21 AM BY 1 COMMENT

“Of course, you immediately run the risk of being called ‘Islamophobic,’ etc.” but “we speak the truth in love,” stated Baroness Cox of Queensbury while recently addressing her political activism at a private Washington, DC, gathering. Her work in her native United Kingdom and beyond shows that the wider world needs much more such loving truthfulness concerning all matters Islamic.

Cox is wont to distinguish between Islam as a private faith and Islamism as an ideology in the political realm, as during her May Washington, DC, visit with appearances at venues like the DACOR Bacon House. Speaking to about 20 listeners at the National Press Club (NPC; audio recording) on May 9, she emphasized that the “vast majority of the world’s Muslims are peaceable, law-abiding, extremely hospitable, and culturally delightful people.” In contrast to Muslims like her London neighbors, she worried about dangers from a “political, strategic Islam.”

Cox’s distinction between Muslim people and politics became evident while discussing her longstanding advocacy as a House of Lords member for the Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill. Motivated by mounting public concern over private Islamic sharia bodies in Britain, her legislative proposal would increase government regulation of religious arbitration and mediation tribunals. Phenomena such as polygamy and doctrinally-justified domestic abuse demonstrate that “sharia law has inherent in it gender discrimination,” she stated at NPC.

Why do politicians and other religious illiterates intone the vacuous mantra that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’every time there is an atrocity like the Manchester bombing, last week? 9/11 should have stopped such nonsense in its tracks sixteen years ago. But no, they continue to inform us that Islamic terrorism has nothing whatever to do with ‘peaceful’ Islam.

Smoking during Ramadan is forbidden, but killing someone who is smoking during Ramadan is pleasing to Allah.

What will these “Arab nationals” be like in five or ten years, when they’re out on the streets in Germany (and don’t kid yourself, they will be)? Will they be loyal and productive citizens of the Federal Republic? Germany is staking its future on the hope that they and others like them will be. How wise a bet is that? We shall soon see. In fact, we are already seeing, in this incident and others.
