“And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.”—Koran 33:26, Hilali-Khan translation [1]

“And He brought down those of the People of the Book who supported them from their fortresses and cast terror in their hearts; some you slew, some you made captive.”—Koran 33:26, Arberry translation [2]

Friday, October 9, 2015, brandishing a knife, Gaza cleric Sheikh Muhammad Sallah “Abu Rajab”’s sermon at the Al-Abrar Mosque in Rafah, explicitly fomented [3] murderous knifing attacks on Israeli Jews as sanctioned by Muhammad’s actions towards the Jews of the Khaybar oasis, and the Medinan Jewish tribe, Banu Qurayza [4]. “Abu Rajab” further invoked [5] the murderous verdict, and even ghost-like spirit, of Muhammad’s vindictive “arbiter” against the Qurayza, Sa’d b. Mu’adh [6].

The soldiers of the Prophet Muhammad are here. Brothers, this is why we recall today what Allah did to the Jews. We recall what He did to them in Khaybar….Now, we are imposing a curfew with daggers, and in the next phase, which is Allah willing, about to be realized… We shall not send you back to Russia, Bulgaria, the Ukraine, or Poland. We shall not send you back there. You have come here… The Islamic military court has ruled… This court, presided over by the Prophet’s Companion Sad Ibn Mu’adh, has ruled… Sa’d Ibn Mu’adh has reappeared – in the West Bank. Sa’d Ibn Mu’adh is now in the streets of Jerusalem, Afula, Tel Aviv, and the Negev. The Islamic military court has made the divined ruling: You will get nothing in our land except for slaughtering or stabbing. Why? The world will say that we are terrorists, that we incite. Yes! “Oh Prophet, sufficient for you and for whoever follows you of the believers is Allah. Oh Prophet of Allah, incite the believers to fight.” Oh people of Al-Abrar Mosque and the people of Rafah – from this mosque of yours, you have the honor of delivering these messages to the men of the West Bank: Form stabbing quads. We don’t want just a single stabber. Oh young men of the West Bank: Attack in threes and fours. Some should restrain the victim, while others attack him with axes and butcher knives.[…]Do not fear what will be said about you. Oh men of the West Bank, next time, attack in a group of three, four, or five. Attack them in groups. Cut them into body parts.

It’s very Islamic to murder homosexuals……

The Orlando Jihad Carnage, and A Mainstream, Authoritative U.S. Muslim Fatwa on “Atrocious” Homosexuality and Its Lethal Punishment

The late Taher Jaber al-Alwani (d. March, 2016), trained at Al-Azhar University, founded in 973 C.E., and Sunni Islam’s most prestigious religious teaching institution since the mid-13th century, till now. Receiving his Ph.D in Islamic Law from Al-Azhar in 1973, al-Alwani subsequently taught Islamic Law at the Imam Muhammad b. Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Al-Alwani participated in the founding of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) in the United States in 1981. He was also a founding member of the Council of the Muslim World League in Mecca, a member of the international Organization of Islamic Cooperation Islamic Fiqh [Islamic Jurisprudence] Academy in Jeddah, since 1987, and President of the Fiqh Council of North America from 1988, till his recent death. In short, al-Alwani was a highly trained, greatly respected, mainstream Muslim authority on Islamic Law, internationally, and within the US.

Al-Alwani’s June 18, 2003 “fatwa” on homosexuality—an Islamic “legal” ruling per Islam’s theo-political totalitarian “legal” system, the Sharia, merits careful consideration in the wake of pious Muslim jihadist Omar Marteen’s mass murderous attack on an Orlando gay night club early yesterday, Sunday, June 12, 2016.

Citing precedent from the Koran itself, and the most trusted hadith or “traditions” of Muhammad, Islam’s prophet, and human behavior prototype, al-Alwani makes plain homosexuality is a “moral atrocity,” punishable by death in the corporeal world, and eternal torment in the hereafter.

[I]t should be clear that homosexuality is sinful and shameful. In Islamic terminology it is called ‘Al-Fahsha’ or an atrocious and obscene act. Islam teaches that believers should neither do the obscene acts, nor in any way indulge in their propagation. Allah says, “Those who love (to see) obscenity published broadcast among the Believers will have a grievous Penalty in this life and in the Hereafter: Allah knows, and you know not.” (Al-Nur [chapter 24]: 19)

Referring to Muhammad’s timeless example, al-Alwani rivets on the real world lethal punishment of homosexuals:

In Hadith, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, clarifies the gravity of this abomination by saying: “Allah curses the one who does the actions of the people of Lut” repeating it three times; and he said in another Hadith:” If a man comes upon a man then they are both adulterers”  Here, he considered homosexuality tantamount to adultery in relation to the Shari’ah punishments because it is an abomination on the one hand and the definition of adultery applies to it on the other hand. It has also been narrated from the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) that this crime deserves severe punishment more than that of adultery to insure its deterrence and restraint. Verily, the punishment here is the burning of both homosexuals (the actor and acted upon) or stoning them with rocks till death because Allah Most High stoned the people of Lut after demolishing their village.

Al-Alwani’s fatwa concludes with a concrete example that reveals how a model Islamic society under the first “Rightly Guided” Caliph Abu Bakr [d. 634] treated homosexual “criminality”

But the actions of the Prophet’s Companions do indicate that in fact this crime has a worldly punishment, to be carried out by those in authority among the Muslims. The story of Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq when Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed wrote to him on this matter is famous and can be referenced in many sources. The story referred to above goes as follows:  “In his book Fat-h al-Qadir, the famous Hanafi scholar, Ibn al-Humam states: “Al-Bayhaqi reported in his book Shu`ab al-Iman on the authority of Abu ad-Dunya that Abd al-`Aziz ibn Abi Hazim related from Dawud ibn Bakr who related from Muhammad ibn al-Mukadir the following: “Khalid Ibn al-Walid wrote to Abu Bakr [seeking the legal ruling] concerning a man with whom another man had sexual intercourse. Thereupon, Abu Bakr gathered the Companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and sought their opinion. `Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, was the strictest of all, saying, ‘Only one nation disobeyed Allah by committing such sin and you know how Allah dealt with them. I see that we should burn the man with fire.’ The Companions unanimously agreed on this.” This incident is also mentioned by al-Waqidi under the subject of apostasy at the end of the section on the apostasy of Bani Salim.]

A very unique lecture (of ~23 minutes) by, Dr.Andrew Bostom, for the Education Policy Conference has just been placed online at YouTube. Dr.Bostom’s lecture on “Islam and the `Sexual Ethics’ of Jihad Slavery,” was presented on January 29, 2016 at The Education Policy Conference in St. Louis, MO.

It’s important to “learn this critical if terribly disturbing information in its ancient cum modern context—from Muhammad through and the Arab & Turk & Tatar Muslim invaders, through present ISIS and the Islamic Republic of Mauritanian (in West Africa)—and the New Years Eve horrors of Cologne, Germany!

Ted Cruz Sacrificed His ‘Constitutional Principles’ Within a Week on the Iran Nuke Deal

On April 14, 2015, a much ballyhooed “compromise”—but in fact a constitutional capitulation—regarding S.615, the “Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015,” was unanimously agreed upon within the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Independent and Washington Post assessments of critical aspects of the lauded compromise brokered by Republican Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker and Democrat Ben Cardin confirmed my worst fears about what had actually transpired.

Politico observed:

Though it gives Congress an avenue to reject the lifting of legislative sanctions that will be a key part of any deal with Iran, it explicitly states that Congress does not have to approve the diplomatic deal struck by Iran, the United States and other world powers… nor does it treat an Iran agreement like a treaty

This claim was substantiated on p. 32 of the updated bill, under a section titled “EFFECT OF CONGRESSIONAL ACTION WITH RESPECT TO NUCLEAR AGREEMENTS WITH IRAN,” which states in lines 16-19,

16‘‘(C) this section does not require a vote by17 Congress for the agreement to commence;

18 ‘‘(D) this section provides for congressional

19 review,

Furthermore, as Karen DeYoung and Mike DeBonis added in their Washington Postreport:

Obama retains the right to veto any action to scuttle an Iran pact. To override, a veto would require a two-thirds majority of both House and Senate.

Thus the Corker-Cardin compromise validated the Obama administration’s negotiations strategy. That “strategy” was contrary to almost all past arms control agreements of consequence, which have been Senate advice and consent treaties, whose approval requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate. The Obama administration, in contrast, is hell-bent on giving legitimacy to Iran’s uranium enrichment program,and waiving economic sanctions on Iran, while not submitting the fruits of its masterful negotiations to a congressional vote for initial approval, prior to implementing the agreement. These developments should be a tocsin of looming calamity given that the framework fiasco for this pending deal includes an inadequate/“hotly contested” inspections process, while also fully ignoring Iran’s ballistic missile and nuclear weaponization programs.

Cover art for the Report by the High-Level Advisory Group established at the initiative of the President of the European Commission, “Dialogue between Peoples and Cultures in the Euro-Mediterranean Area,” Brussels, October 2003. As the report noted, “The orientation of this map corresponds to the world view of the Arab cartographers of the Middle Ages”that is, reinforcing Islamic jihad supremacism, and reversing the true geographical orientation of the Mediterranean Sea, with the North African Mediterranean littoral on top of the Southern European Mediterranean littoral.


Ivan Jurcevic, till his New Year’s eve 12/31/15 eyewitness epiphany, deemed Muslim rampages in Europe the stuff of “right wing PEGIDA [a grass roots European anti-Islamization advocacy group] propaganda videos.” But that evening Jurcevic, a Cologne, Germany hotel club bouncer, witnessed barbaric scenes of sexual assault against women, a hemorrhagic stab wounding, attacks on police, and other acts of violence, committed directly in front of Cologne’s iconic cathedral, the Kölner Dom. All the mayhem Jurcevic observed was perpetrated by roving throngs of Muslim males, whom he noted caustically, were from among those ostensible “refugees” that,

…we welcomed just 3-months ago with teddy bears and water bottles on the main Munich railway station.

Intrepid, yeoman reporting by Breitbart London—as even acknowledged in a Times of London op-ed—exposed the scope and brutality of these Muslim immigrant-perpetrated events, which were initially suppressed by German, and other Western European governmental sources, and their simpatico, cultural relativist lapdog media.  Consistent with bowdlerized reportage on commonplace, heinous acts of misogyny rampant in Muslim societies—notably, female genital mutilation, or the Islamic State’s practice of jihad sexual slavery—the canonical Islamic roots of such predatory behavior [see also Koran 2:223 which designates women as “tilth” sexual objects for Muslim men, “when or how you (men]) will”]  were of course ignored in mainstream media outlets belatedly acknowledging the mass acts of sexual assault committed New Year’s Eve by Muslim males in Cologne, and elsewhere across Western Europe.  This predictable lacune in mainstream media reporting is compounded by the universal failure—of all media outlets—to comprehend that the shocking events which transpired New Year’s Eve are merely symptomatic of a decades long Islamization process, the “fulfillment” of the dystopian ideal of “Eurabia”

From Europe to Eurabia (as analyzed, primarily, in my book, “Sharia Versus Freedom”)

There is ubiquitous ignorance about the origins of the term “Eurabia,” despite its not infrequent usage, and a meticulous documentation of the term’s genesis by historian Bat Ye’or. The intimately related Euro-Arab Dialogue (EAD) was born of the Arab League’s October, 1973 Yom Kippur war against Israel, which ended in another Israeli victory, and the associated oil embargo. The EAD produced an alphabet soup of European Community, and later European Union-funded organizations charged with planning joint political, cultural, social, industrial, commercial, and technical-scientific projects. Soon afterward, it spawned a European Parliamentary Association for Euro-Arab Cooperation whose members represented a broad spectrum of European Community political groups. Biannual Euro-Arab Parliamentary meetings convened alternately in Europe and the Arab nations. Some 100 European and Arab members of their respective Parliaments attended, in conjunction with observers from the European Community/European Union Commission, the Arab League, and other international organizations. In Damascus, during an initial meeting September 14-17, 1974, the Arab delegates established their political preconditions for economic agreements with Western Europe, specifically demanding:

  1. Israel’s unconditional withdrawal to the 1949 armistice lines
  2. Arab sovereignty over the Old City of Jerusalem
  3. Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) participation (lead by Yasser Arafat), in any negotiations
  4. European Community pressure on the United States to detach it from Israel and bring its policies closer to those of the Arab states

I discovered a remarkable US Department of State [USDOS] memo from the U.S. embassy in Madrid, dated September 19, 1974 [MADRID 05880 191259Z, declassified June 30, 2005], which refers to a parallel, contemporaneous meeting that took place in Cordoba September 12-16, 1974, as it notes, “one-time capital of [the] caliphate of Cordoba,  and one of [the] most historic centers of [the] Moorish legacy in Spain.” What is described as the “emotional and symbolic highlight of the conference” occurred on September 13, 1974:


The State Department analyst, unfortunately, omitted the fact that the “mosque turned cathedral” had simply been restored to a cathedral as a result of the 13th century Castillian reconquest, some 5-centuries after the mid-8th century “conversion” of the original [Visigothic] Christian cathedral to a mosque, resulting from the jihad conquest, brutal subjugation, and resultant Sharia-imposing occupation of the Iberian peninsula. However, this document also reveals that the USDOS analyst was fully aware of the advent of “Eurabia,” precisely as self-characterized in an official European socio-political journal [see below] bearing the title Eurabia. To the analyst’s credit, s/he is fully cognizant of the politicization of the so-called “Palestinian question,” noting “a marked bias for the Arab viewpoint,” even concluding that this biased viewpoint—fully concordant with the Islam’s jihad supremacism—was the most salient feature of the Conference.

Muhammad’s Example Shapes Islamic State Ruling on Female Sex Slavery

As I was preparing to discuss my 12/28/15 Breitbart essay, “Islam and the Global Epidemic of Muslim Jew-Hatred,” on Breitbart News Daily (discussion, 12/29/15 here), a Reuters story about an ISIS “fatwa” (i.e., Islamic “religious” edict) regarding female sex slaves appeared online.

Our Breitbart News Daily discussion riveted upon the continued failure of all current Presidential candidates to address living Islamic doctrine and history with requisite informed candor. That frank conversation provides an ideal segue to the just-released ISIS sex slavery fatwa, and its own doctrinal rootedness within canonical Islam. 

The fatwa in question is part of cache of documents captured during a May, 2015 raid on a leading ISIS official in Syria. These materials are now being made public, rather piecemeal. Dated January 29, 2015, the fatwa, per traditional style, opens with a query to be addressed by the ISIS “Committee of Research and Fatwas”:

Question: Some of the brothers have committed violations in the matter of the treatment of the female slaves. These violations are not permitted by Sharia law, because these rules have not been dealt with in ages. Are there any warnings pertaining to this matter? 

The ruling first elucidates a straightforward rationale for jihad enslavement, entirely consistent with the classical Islamic jurisprudence of jihad war.

One of the graces which Allah has bestowed upon the State of Caliphate is the conquest of large surface areas of the country and one of the inevitable consequences of the jihad of establishment is that women and children will become captives of Muslims.

A Muslim “owner” (8 mentions), non-Muslim female “captive” (13 mentions) master-slave relationship is made unabashedly clear in the fatwa. Notwithstanding the fatwa’s hollow invocation to “show compassion towards her,” i.e. the female sex slave and serial rape victim – such as refraining from anal intercourse, or intercourse during menstruation – testimonies of freed Yazidi and Christian ISIS sex slaves reveal the horrific reality of such captivity.

Muhammad, Islam’s beloved prophet, as Muslims are told in the Koran’s 33rd sura (chapter) “is closer to the believers than their selves and his wives are their mothers.” [Koran 33:6]. Moreover, Muhammad was Islam’s proto-type jihadist (also see this contemporary formulation, “The Prophet Muhammad as a Jihad Model”), whose idealized example Muslims are exhorted “to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much.” [Koran 33:21]

What was Muhammad’s “perfect” role model, vis-à-vis jihad slavery? Also, what do Islam’s canonical texts, especially the Koran and the hadith (Muhammad’s “guiding” words and deeds as recorded by his pious Muslim companions), opine on these matters?

Muhammad, using the Koranic “revelation” as justification, insisted that he was entitled to not only his own wives, but those captured in battle (and cousins as well), per Allah’s allowance in Koran 33:50 (4 additional translations here).

Andrew Bostom: ‘Jew Hatred’ Fundamental To Islam

Anti-jihad expert Andrew Bostom, author of The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism: From Sacred Texts to Solemn History, appeared on Breitbart News Daily today to discuss his latest article, “Islam and the Global Epidemic of Muslim Jew-Hatred.”

In speaking of American leadership, Bostom said, “They’re really largely uninformed about basic Islamic doctrine and history. And they’re very uncomfortable with what is really the essential feature of Islam, which is that it’s as much a political ideology as it is a religion … perhaps more so.”

Bostom believes that fact impacts any open discussion of Islam. He cited the “religion of peace” comments from former President Bush, which were also supported by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to “Obama’s rather blatant Islamophilia” as having “warped the debate” around Islam to the point where openly anti-Semitic comments can be broadcast without question.

It was one such recent broadcast which inspired Bostom’s latest article.

I agree.


The religion portion of Islam is merely window dressing, the beard to the ideology in keeping the “masses” in line and pointed one way.

Rush Limbaugh’s Christmas Message on Islam, “[A] Conquest Ideology. Not Even a Religion”

Tuesday, December 22, talk show host Rush Limbaugh dispensed with the usual craven, cultural relativist obfuscations employed across the political spectrum which insist upon qualifiers such as “radical Islam,” or “Islamism.” Just before parting for the holidays, with bold Christmas clarity, Mr. Limbaugh proffered the following gimlet-eyed assessment of Islam, and its quintessence, jihad:

Islam is a conquest ideology.  Not even a religion.  And this is one of these things, if people aren’t even willing to admit what we’re up against, there’s no way we’re ever going to come to a fabled consensus in dealing with it [Islam]. And then, furthermore, if we’re gonna protect it [Islam] by enshrouding it [Islam] with political correctness, then we are only dooming ourselves. And there are many of us who recognize all of this and remain dumbfounded that so many others fail to see it.  And their failure to see it is putting us all at risk.  It really isn’t any more complicated than that… it’s conquest, folks.  It isn’t revenge.  It’s not trying to get even with people for what they’ve done in the past.  It’s trying to eliminate what and who are considered to be nonbelievers.  

 Limbaugh elucidated the crux of the specific institutionalized religio-political ideology, i.e., jihad, which makes Islamdom’s borders (and the further reaches of today’s jihadists) bloody, to paraphrase the late Harvard political scientist Samuel Huntington, across the globe. To validate his contention that,“Wherever one looks along the perimeter of Islam, Muslims have problems living peaceably with their neighbors,” Huntington adduced these hard data, circa 1996:

The overwhelming majority of fault line conflicts … have taken place along the boundary looping across Eurasia and Africa that separates Muslims from non-Muslims…Intense antagonisms and violent conflicts are pervasive between local Muslim and non- Muslim peoples…Muslims make up about one-fifth of the world’s population, but in the 1990s they have been far more involved in inter-group violence than the people of any other civilization. The evidence is overwhelming. There were, in short, three times as many inter-civilizational conflicts involving Muslims as there were between non-Muslim civilizations…Muslim states also have had a high propensity to resort to violence in international crises, employing it to resolve 76 crises out of a total of 142 in which they were involved between 1928 and 1979. … When they did use violence, Muslim states used high-intensity violence, resorting to full-scale war in 41 percent of the cases where violence was used and engaging in major clashes in another 39 percent of the cases. While Muslim states resorted to violence in 53.5 percent, violence was used the United Kingdom in only 1.5 percent, by the United States in 17.9 percent, and by the Soviet Union in 28.5 percent of the crises in which they were involved…Muslim bellicosity and violence are late-twentieth-century facts which neither Muslims nor non-Muslims can deny.

Huntington concluded, without equivocation, that the problem for the West, and indeed all other non-Muslim societies, victimized by Islamic bellicosity, is Islam itself, not any radical variant of the creed.

The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism. It is Islam, a different civilization whose people are convinced of the superiority of their culture

Deobandi Butchery in San Bernardino: 1977 Roots of the Jihad Carnage

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower Philip Haney made a startling series of revelations Thursday evening (12/10/15) on Fox News’ The Kelly File. Haney described how he began investigating scores of individuals with links to the traditionalist Islamic Indo-Pakistani Deobandi movement, and its related offshoots, prominently, Tablighi Jamaat. He maintained the groups were exploiting the visa waiver program to transport suspected jihadist operatives in and out of the U.S., thus he started tracking them, and recording these findings within a DHS database.

Haney’s efforts (as summarized by Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller) were eventually noticed by the National Targeting Center (NTC), which operates as an umbrella organization in U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Haney was subsequently asked to work for the NTC and rivet his attention on these Deobandi-related organizations. Over the course of his investigation, Haney received an award for identifying more than 300 potential jihad terrorists with links to the Deobandi affiliates.

Tablighi Jamaat certainly merited the attention Haney was giving it, having beenconnected to a series of jihad terrorist attacks, which included targeting the U.S.: the October, 2002 Portland (Oregon) Seven, and September, 2002 Lackawanna (New York) Six cases; an Aug. 2006 plot to bomb airliners en route from London to the U.S.; attempted bombings in London and Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2007; and involvement in the July 7, 2005, London bombings, which killed 52 and injured more than 700. French investigators have further estimated Tablighi Jamaat ideological indoctrination was associated with 80% of their jihad terror cases.

Haney’s fastidious investigations raised serious concerns about the San Bernardino Deobandi movement-affiliated Darul-Uloom al-Islamia mosque—attended by jihad-waging killer Syed Farook. In addition, Farook’s jihadist accomplice wife, Tashfeen Malik, attended a traditionalist Islamic education center in Pakistan, also connected with the Deobandi movement. Notwithstanding his patriotic, yeoman efforts, DHS shut down Haney’s probe, and revoked both his security clearance and access to the databases he compiled. Retributive investigations against Haney by DHS and the Obama Justice Department, however, revealed no wrongdoing on his part. Tragically, as Haney explained, had his probe not been terminated for alleged “civil rights violations” of jihad-indoctrinated Muslim followers of the Deobandi movement:

Either Syed would have been put on the no-fly list because association with that mosque, and/or the K-1 visa that his wife was given may have been denied because of his association with a known organization.

The Deobandi-linked jihad carnage that transpired in San Bernardino has much deeper roots, not only on the Indian subcontinent, but dating from at least 1977, within North America, as well.

The traditionalist Islamic Darul Uloom Deoband school was founded in conjunction with the mid-19th century Indian Muslim jihad against British colonial rule, becoming a hub of the broader global Caliphate revival movement centered in India after the humiliating Ottoman defeat during the 1877-78 Russo-Turkish War. Mahmood Hasan (1851-1920), the first graduate of the Darul Uloom Deoband, was active in early 20th century jihadist activities against British colonial India, and he was also an accomplished Koranic scholar whose seminal 20th centurycommentary on the Koran (via his pupil S.A. Usmani) remains an influential work for Indo-Pakistani Muslims. Moreover, per a reverent biography of Muhammad Ilyas (1885-1944), founder of the Tablighi Jamaat, who was “infused with the spirit of Jihad,” Ilyas “took the pledge of Jihad at the hands of the Maulana Mahmood Hasan for that very reason.” Muhammad Ilyas in turn, formally mentored Abul Hasan Ali Hasani Nadwi (1914-99)

Devout Muslims, Like Syed Farook, Recite Koranic Verse Cursing Jews and Christians 17 Times Per Day

I just heard former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir aptly characterize San Bernadino, CA Muslim jihadist murderer Syed Farook, and his accomplice Saudi Muslim wife, Tafsheen Malik, as “true believers.” Indeed Safir’s description comports neatly with this candid assessment of Farook by the murderer’s own father:

He was very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.

These revealing words by Farook’s father and even more importantly Safir’s apposite characterization recall the late Eric Hoffer’s (d. 1983) observations on Islam from his seminal study of fanatical mass movements, The True Believer.

Islam obtained from its coerced converts ‘a faith ever tending to grow stronger.’ Fanatical orthodoxy is in all movements a late development. It comes when the movement is in full possession of power and can impose its faith by force as well as by persuasion.

A daily example of such mainstream “devout” Muslim fanaticism is the multiply repeated recitation of the Koranic verse, sura (chapter) 1, verse 7. Pious Muslims repeat Koran 1:7 up to 17 times a day, as part of the five daily prayer sessions, consistent with this admonition, recorded by the great medieval Koranic commentator and historian Ibn Kathir (d. 1373):

 [R] eciting the Opening of the Book [the Fatiha, verses Koran 1:1 to 1:7], during the prayer by the Imam and those praying behind him is required in every prayer, and in every Ra’kah [unit of prayer]”)

Koran 1:7, specifically, is where Muslims ask Allah to guide them rightly, not in the path of those who provoke and must bear His wrath. An authoritative modern Koranic translation by Drs. Muhammad al-Hilali and Muhammad Khan (p.12) of the Koran 1:7 includes parenthetical references to the Jews (after the word “anger”), and the Christians (after the word “astray’):

 “The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).”

French Muslim Mohammed Chirani stares down Islamic State to declare jihad

A French Muslim who created headlines when he went on national television in France to declare jihad on Islamic State (IS) extremists says he is not deterred by the death threats he has received since.

In the wake of the Paris attacks, Mohammed Chirani, a specialist in religious radicalisation, delivered an impassioned speech telling IS that Allah would not protect them.

“Know that our dead, the innocent French citizens, are in paradise,” he said.

“And your dead, the terrorists, are in hell.”

Holding up a copy of the Koran and his French passport, he said he would use both to wage jihad against the extremists.

“I’d like to say we’ll wage jihad against you with the Koran,” he said.

“I’d like to tell the traitors who deceived France, betrayed their country and burned their IDs, that we are kissing our documents.”

ISIS Statement Celebrating Paris Jihad Carnage: A Mainstream, Contemporary Gloss on Koran 59:2, the ISIS Statement’s “Preamble”

The ghoulish, celebratory pronouncement by ISIS in the wake of the jihad carnage (at least 129 murdered, 99 critically wounded in Paris, and 352 others wounded) “A Statement on the Blessed Onslaught in Paris against the Crusader Nation of France,” opens with Koran 59:2. The full statement is reproduced below, preceded by a modern gloss of this verse, which places the ISIS statement in its appropriate Islamic context, i.e., of jihad terror.

Shabbir Ahmad Usmani (1886-1949) was a renowned theologian, writer, orator, and politician, with particular expertise in the study and interpretation of the Koran, and the traditions of Muhammad, or hadith. Usmani’s magnum opus was his Koranic commentary, Tafsir-e-Usmani, which drew upon some 14 prior commentaries. What follows is the crux of Usmani’s exegesis—a consensus, mainstream Islamic interpretation—which demonstrates ISIS invoked Koran 59:2 in a manner concordant with this authoritative gloss.

Seeing goods and materials, their [the Jews, specifically; non-Muslim “infidels” more broadly] strong fortresses and militant manners you could not think they would flee so soon and surrender so easily, nor could the Jews calculate that a handful of Muslims would reduce them to great straits. They were in this dreamland that the Muslims would not dare to come to their fortresses—(those Muslims upon whom was the hand of Allah). In other words they saw it very well that no power could defend them against the order of Allah. Upon the order of Allah came from whence they imagined not, i.e., from the interior of their hearts, i.e., Allah cast terror into their hearts and established the power of the unequipped Muslims, having no spectacular material resources, upon the powerful enemy. One onside they were distressed and terrified at the sudden murder of their [the Jews] chief Ka’ab ibn Ashraf [whom Islam’s prophet Muhammad ordered assassinated], now this sudden assault of the Muslims lost their remaining senses.

 Out of greed, anger and wrathful emotions they [the Jews] began to tear down the beams and planks of their houses, so that they could carry as much as they could and leave nothing for the Muslims. In this work, the Muslims also helped them. On one side they dilapidated; on the other side the Muslims dilapidated, and if observed honestly, the dilapidation at the hands of the Muslims was the result of their own treacheries and breaking of covenants. For the wise men possessed of discernment, there is an ample lesson in this event. Allah has clearly showed what was the result of unbelief, wrong, mischief and breach of contract, and that mere putting trust in external causes, heedless of Allah’s power, is not the work of a wise man.
