Another modern interpreter of jihad is Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenei (d. 1989), who in a speech in 1942 clarifies that, as the title suggests, "Islam Is Not a Religion of Pacifists".[Cit. ur red. Rubin & Rubin, Anti-American Terrorism and the Middle East, s. 29, 32-6.]
Kuffar fight for spoils & sex slaves; Muslims fight for virtue. Yeah, right. Examine the following hadith, which was Bowdlerized from USC-MSA's Bukhari collection, but included in 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.Examine Allah's understanding of Moe's motivation.
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.Bear this fact in mind: Moe got the top 20% of the spoils, by Allah's command.
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.Do you understand that booty includes captive women?
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 143:The old fart wasted his entire life immersed in Islam's scripture & tradition; knew it inside out, yet he spewed holy hypocrisy. Yoel Natan has compiled a list of 164 violent verses. You can find the worst of them, along with the ahadith which confirm them and tafsir which explain them in EgregiousAyat.chm.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet said to Abu Talha, "Choose one of your boy servants to serve me in my expedition to Khaibar." So, Abu Talha took me letting me ride behind him while I was a boy nearing the age of puberty. I used to serve Allah's Apostle when he stopped to rest. I heard him saying repeatedly, "O Allah! I seek refuge with You from distress and sorrow, from helplessness and laziness, from miserliness and cowardice, from being heavily in debt and from being overcome by men." Then we reached Khaibar; and when Allah enabled him to conquer the Fort (of Khaibar), the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtab was described to him. Her husband had been killed while she was a bride. So Allah's Apostle selected her for himself and took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad-AsSahba,' where her menses were over and he took her for his wife. Haris (a kind of dish) was served on a small leather sheet. Then Allah's Apostle told me to call those who were around me. So, that was the marriage banquet of Allah's Apostle and Safiya. Then we left for Medina. I saw Allah's Apostle folding a cloak round the hump of the camel so as to make a wide space for Safiya (to sit on behind him) He sat beside his camel letting his knees for Safiya to put her feet on so as to mount the camel. Then, we proceeded till we approached Medina; he looked at Uhud (mountain) and said, "This is a mountain which loves us and is loved by us." Then he looked at Medina and said, "O Allah! I make the area between its (i.e. Medina's) two mountains a sanctuary as Abraham made Mecca a sanctuary. O Allah! Bless them (i.e. the people of Medina) in their Mudd and Sa (i.e. measures)."
It is true that Islam is violent, not pacifist. It is not true that Islam is pure virtue. If you don't understand or don;t believe these fatal facts, read the Qur'an & hadith and see for yourself. The evidence is available, you just need to read it. Here are the links; will you use them or waste them? Surahs 2,3,4,7,8,9,33,47 48, 59 & 61 and Bukhari's Books 52,53&59 contain most of what you need to know; EgregiousAyat.chm contains a wider sampling plus relevant Shari'ah.. .
