Summary: 

Egypt's leading Muslim cleric and sheikh, Dr. Ahmed al-Tayeb recently asserted a demonstrable falsehood. On April 30, 2020, during his televised program that appears every year around Ramadan and is watched by millions in Egypt and the Arab world, the grand imam of the Islamic world's most prestigious university, Al Azhar, declared that "Islam doesn't seek war or bloodshed, and Muslims only fight back to defend themselves."

...

Needless to say, such claims fly in the face of more than a millennium of well documented Islamic teachings and Islamic history. Beginning with Muhammad — whose later wars were hardly defensive, but rather raids meant to empower and aggrandize himself and his followers over non-Muslims — and under the first "righteous" caliphs and virtually all subsequent sultans and rulers, jihad consisted of raiding, slaughtering, enslaving, and ideally conquering non-Muslims who refused the invitation to embrace Islam. One need only look at a map of the Muslim world today and realize that the vast majority of it—all of the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey, Central Asia, as far east as Pakistan, and farther — was taken by violent conquest in the name of jihad.

...

Mocking such Muslim logic, Dr. Ahmed 'Abdu Maher, an Egyptian researcher and political activist, once made a video where he asked a hypothetical. What if Donald Trump — instead of banning immigration from a few terrorist nations (mostly Muslim) and being denounced as a "racist" for it — followed Islam's "altruistic" outlook and offered American Muslims three choices: either convert to Christianity, pay jizya and live as second-class citizens, or die?

Would he be a racist or not? Would he be a terrorist or not? How then that we have in our Islamic jurisprudence, which you teach us, and tell us that all the imams have agreed that the Islamic openings are the way to disseminate Islam? This word "openings" — we must be sensitive to it! The Islamic openings mean swords and killing.

The Islamic openings, through which homes, fortresses, and territories were devastated, ... an Islam which you try to make us follow. So I wonder O sheikh, O leader of this or that Islamic center in New York, would you like to see this done to your wife and daughter? ... That your daughter goes to this fighter , your son to this fighter, a fifth goes to the caliph, and so forth? I mean, isn't this what you refer to as the Sharia of Allah?

https://www.amazon.com/Leaving-Islam-Apostates-Speak-Out-ebook/dp/B002IC018Y/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Leaving+Islam&qid=1589474849&sr=8-1

Among the many essential works of Ibn Warraq, the renowned ex-Muslim historian and scholar of Islam, is an unjustly overlooked book entitled Leaving Islam: Apostates Speak Out, in which he gives a voice to a group of people who are all too often threatened, marginalized, or simply ignored for being too inconvenient for all parties concerned. Now, in the unique and extraordinary Leaving the Allah Delusion Behind: Atheism and Freethought in Islam, Ibn Warraq has provided an extraordinary complement to his earlier volume: a comprehensive survey of atheism in the Islamic world from the earliest days of Islam up to today.

The very existence of this voluminous study might seem anomalous to some, as many assume that atheism is an Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment phenomenon limited to the West and unknown in other cultures and parts of the world. Islam, we are told, is all-encompassing, such that atheism has never gained any widespread foothold in Muslim-majority countries – an argument that contradicts the consigning of every noxious practice (such as, but not limited to, female genital mutilation) in those countries to the pre-Islamic cultural practices that have somehow survived fourteen centuries in an otherwise thoroughly Islamic milieu, but that’s a question for another day.

Summary: 

How could these Tajik nationals think they would be able to recruit converts to Islam? Couldn’t they assume that these converts had been carefully instructed in Islam’s peaceful tenets, the ones that Western politicians confidently and consistently assure us are dominant, and thus would not be suspectible to the appeal of their misunderstanding of Islam?

What makes The Project so different from the standard "Death of America! Death to Israel!" and "Establish the global caliphate!" Islamist rhetoric is that it represents a flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the "cultural invasion" of the West. Calling for the utilization of various tactics, ranging from immigration, infiltration, surveillance, propaganda, protest, deception, political legitimacy and terrorism, The Project has served for more than two decades as the Muslim Brotherhood "master plan". As can be seen in a number of examples throughout Europe – including the political recognition of parallel Islamist government organizations in Sweden, the recent "cartoon" jihad in Denmark, the Parisian car-burning intifada last November, and the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London – the plan outlined in The Project has been overwhelmingly successful.

Rather than focusing on terrorism as the sole method of group action, as is the case with Al-Qaeda, in perfect postmodern fashion the use of terror falls into a multiplicity of options available to progressively infiltrate, confront, and eventually establish Islamic domination over the West. The following tactics and techniques are among the many recommendations made in The Project:

  • Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations;
  • Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of "moderation";
  • Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood's collective goals;
  • Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn't conflict with shari'a law;
  • Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims;
  • Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers;
  • Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities;
  • Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of "international plots fomented against them";
  • Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing "academic" studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements;
  • Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;
  • Balancing international objectives with local flexibility;
  • Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;
  • Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions;
  • Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;
  • Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation;
  • Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution;
  • Instituting alliances with Western "progressive" organizations that share similar goals;
  • Creating autonomous "security forces" to protect Muslims in the West;
  • Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West "in a jihad frame of mind";
  • Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support;
  • Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims;
  • Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination;
  • Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them;
  • Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine;
  • Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement;
  • Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;

In reading The Project, it should be kept in mind that it was drafted in 1982 when current tensions and terrorist activities in the Middle East were still very nascent. In many respects, The Project is extremely prescient for outlining the bulk of Islamist action, whether by "moderate" Islamist organizations or outright terror groups, over the past two decades.

Summary: 

Sharia Watch: The claim that the nature of sharia is undefined is simply not tenable. The Shafi'i manual of sharia was endorsed by Al-Azhar university and other leading Islamic scholars in 1991 as "conforming to the practice and faith of orthodox Sunni Islam".

Paper:

The main challenge of understanding Sharia in the West is its undefined nature. This contradicts the ease with which the term is used in public and political discourse, but also in the legal domain, which prides itself on its precision in terminology. This article addresses the question: What is the Sharia that Muslims in the West practice? To this end, a model is presented that provides tools to describe the complex interaction between Sharia, as practiced by Western Muslims, and their Western environment, and elucidates the ongoing dialectic of this interaction. The model further shows how Western Muslims adopt and adapt Sharia by manoeuvring between their specific needs in the Western context and the conditions set by that context. From a Western perspective, the model shows that issues of Sharia are usually discussed in legal terms, while most controversies are not legal but cultural in nature.

...

The main challenge in understanding what Sharia entails is that it is not a singular notion, nor a code of law contained in a corpus of legal rules.

The passage Surah 3:54 is given below in Arabic.

Notice Allah refers to himself as "Khayrul-Makereen" which correctly translated means "Allah is the greatest of all deceivers." This is verified by looking up the root letters (Meem, Kaaf, and Rah) in an Arabic Dictionary such as Al-Mawrid:

If one still doubts the meaning of the term, consider Abu Bakr’s testimony to the deceptive character of Allah taken from the "Successors of the Messenger" by Khalid Muhammad Khalid, p. 70:
