Two weeks ago, America commemorated the 8th anniversary of the savagery of September 11, 2001. The vicious terrorist attacks of that day made clear that what happened in lands far distant from American shores directly affect our security. We came to learn, if we did not know before, that there were violent fanatics who sought not just to kill innocents, but to end our way of life. Their attacks have not been limited to the United States.Gov. Palin knows of the existence of "violent fanatics" who seek to destroy our way of life. She knows that their attacks occur on a global scope. But does she know that those attacks are motivated by orthodox Islamic doctrine enshrined in the Qur'an and exemplified by Muhammad's sunna?
Where have we heard these key words: "radical Islamic extremists" before? Those are not extremists, they are Salafists, emulating Islam's founder, who was "made victorious with terror". Emulation of the founder in obedience to their deity, is not extremism; it is Islam. Their "twisted vision" is the vision of Allah & Muhammad; it is Islam as revealed in the Qur'an, exemplified in hadith and codified in Shari'ah. .
They attacked targets in Europe, North Africa and throughout the Middle East. Here in Asia, they killed more than 200 in a single attack in Bali. They bombed the Marriott Hotel and the Australian Embassy in Jakarta. Last year in Mumbai, more than 170 were killed in coordinated attacks in the heart of India’s financial capital. In this struggle with radical Islamic extremists, no part of the world is safe from those who bomb, maim and kill in the service of their twisted vision.
"We are not at war with Islam." Islam is at war against us. Why have we not declared and reciprocated? Islam's scripture, the Qur'an, contains an imperative to fight disbelievers until resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped. It contains another imperative to fight Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and make annual extortion payments. Those imperatives are reflected in Islamic law: Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9.9 and 9.8 respectively.
This war – and that is what it is, a war – is not, as some have said, a clash of civilizations. We are not at war with Islam. This is a war within Islam, where a small minority of violent killers seeks to impose their view on the vast majority of Muslims who want the same things all of us want: economic opportunity, education, and the chance to build a better life for themselves and their families. The reality is that al Qaeda and its affiliates have killed scores of innocent Muslim men, women and children.
Muslims who want to live and enjoy productive lives instead of joining the Jihad against us are described by Allah as hypocrites. They will be gathered into Hell along with disbelievers. Allah ordered Muhammad to fight against them. Muhammad was so zealous about Jihad that he cursed those who would abandon it with disgrace, which would not be lifted from them until they return to their original religion (Jihad).
Where Muslims fight Muslims, they are rivals for power, led by men who dream of occupying the Caliph's throne. When they finish fighting each other, they will return to fighting us.
The reality is that Muslims from Algeria, Indonesia, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other countries are fighting al Qaeda and their allies today. But this will be a long war, and it will require far more than just military power to prevail. Just as we did in the Cold War, we will need to use all the tools at our disposal – hard and soft power. Economic development, public diplomacy, educational exchanges, and foreign assistance will be just as important as the instruments of military power.
Our military power will not prevail, unless you are willing to use the ultimate weapon, and with it, erase Islam from the earth. Otherwise, you must fight on the ideological front, with the intention of emancipating Allah's slaves.
Economic development, like the petrodollars, will only enable the enemy to purchase better weapons. Diplomacy accomplishes nothing; worse, it signals weakness and invites attack. Educational exchange produces educated Mujihideen. Where did Khalid Sheikh Mohammad get his higher education?
We can not win in that way! So long as the Afghans are Muslims, slaves of Allah, we have lost and will continue to lose. Shari'ah is the source of their law. Are you familiar with the content of Shari'ah?. Read this provision of Islamic law from Reliance of the Traveller and comprehend Sarah'sr idiotic error. [Emphasis and links added.]
We can win in Afghanistan by helping the Afghans build a stable representative state able to defend itself. And we must do what it takes to prevail.
That is Islamic law, the basis of the Constitutions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Only ignorant fools think we have achieved victory.
O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).
Australia rightly reminds us to keep our eye on Southeast Asia, where Indonesia has proved that Islam and democracy can co-exist. Indonesia has fought extremism inside its own border and is consolidating a multi-ethnic democracy that is home to hundreds of millions of Muslims. Those who say Islam and democracy are incompatible insult our friends in Indonesia.Indonesia is rapidly sliding down the slippery slope of implementing Shari'ah. Indonesia has not proved Islam to be compatible with democracy, because it is not. Islam rejects human law arrived at through democratic consensus. Islam demands Shari'ah, founded on the recitation and sunna of Muhammad. Allah is sovereign. Once Allah and his Messenger have declared a matter, nobody can question their decision. That attitude is not compatible with democracy.
Because George Bush did not understand Islam, he ordered invasions which cost thousands of lives and billions of dollars, accomplishing nothing. If we elect another ignorant politician to lead us, we will continue down the same path to certain defeat. We must either educate Sarah Palin or find another charismatic leader who is informed or educable.
