I have attempted to format Rep. Smith's questions in Century Gothic and A.G. Holder's answers in Ariel.
Because of? --Radical Islam.--There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions. Its hard--I think you have to look at each individual case. I mean we are in the process now of talking to Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action he took.
But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons ?
There are a variety of reasons--But was radical Islam one of them? -- There are a variety of reasons why people do these things. Some of them are potentially religious convictions--But all I'm asking is if you think among those variety of reasons, radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did?-- We say radical Islam...I think those people who espouse a version of Islam that is not--Are you uncomfortable with attributing any of their actions to radical Islam it sounds like it?--No, I don't want to say anything negative about a religion that is not appropriate--I'm talking about radical Islam, I'm not talking about the general religion--Right and I'm saying that a person like Anwar Awlaki,-- for instance, who has a version of Islam that is not consistent with the teachings of of it and espouses a radical version--Could Radical Islam have motivated have motivated these individuals to take the steps that they did? --I certainly think that it is possible that people who espouse a radical version of Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad.--And could it have been the case in one of these three instances ?--Could that have been the case?--Yes--again, could one of these three individuals have been incited by radical Islam? Apparently you feel that they could have been.-- I think potentially incited by a view of Islam that is inconsistent with--It is hard to get an answer yes or no but let me go on to my next question, ...
Rush Limbaugh & Sean Hannity had fun with this video clip, playing the sound track for their audiences. They drew attention to the fact that Holder carefully avoided attributing terror attacks to "radical Islam". Since I am an amateur, not dependent on advertisers for revenue, I can analyze the dialog more deeply than the professionals who are beholden to political correctness.
There are two critical statements in the dialog.
- "No, I don't want to say anything negative about a religion that is not appropriate"
- "I'm talking about radical Islam, I'm not talking about the general religion"
Some insightful person whose identity I have forgotten, said "Its Islam, Stupid.". Qualifiers such as 'radical' and catch phrases such as 'Islamofascism' distract us from objective factual reality which few are willing to acknowledge.
This hadith reveals too much about Islam, pay close attention to the parts I have emphasized.
Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
Jihad and agriculture are presented as alternative ways of life, agriculture is rejected in favor of jihad. Jihad is their "original religion". That should give you a clue.
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.
Don't hand me the standard line of crap about jihad being a struggle against your ego. Moe waged war against anyone he could plunder, he did not struggle against temptation. After all, he married a six year old girl. He also married the wife of his adopted son and seven other women besides captives and slaves he sexually exploited. Jihad is defined in Islamic law as "to war against non-Muslims".
One Qur'an verse conveys vital knowledge, affording you another clue.
Fight in Allah's cause, kill & be killed; its what Muslims do. Got a clue yet? The Qur'an mandates jihad, declaring that it is ordained for Muslims. It also commands Muslims to wage war against disbelievers. Surah Al-Anfal 39 commands Muslims to fight pagans until resistance ceases and only Allah is worshiped. Surah At-Taubah 29 commands them to fight "people of the book" until we are subjugated and submit to annual extortion demands. Moe confirmed those imperatives, as recorded in Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.
Think back to the playing of the cockpit voice recorder after 9/11. What did they say while they slit the throats of the crew? What did Nidal Malik Hasan say when he opened fire at Fort Hood? Why shout "Allāhu Akbar"? Mohammad Atta has the answer for you: "When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, 'Allahu Akbar,' because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers." Allah is greatest just happens to be what they say when they slaughter a goat for eid and when slitting the throat of a captive.
What is the objective of striking fear? It is done for the purpose of rendering us confused, agitated and unable to mount an effective defense; to make us easy prey. It is commanded in Surah Al-Anfal 12 & 60. It is exemplified in Surat Al-Ahzab 26 & Al-Hashr 2. It is celebrated in Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331 & 4.52.220. Terrorism is not exceptional. Terrorism is not radical. Terrorism is not extreme; it is an intrinsic part of orthodox Islam.
