al-Azhar Barry Rubin Jihad Jihad Ideology



US President Barack Obama in Cairo addressing the Muslim world, 4 Jun 2009; “For over a thousand years, Al-Azhar has stood as a beacon of Islamic learning, and for over a century, Cairo University has been a source of Egypt’s advancement. Together, you represent the harmony between tradition and progress.”

US policy vis-a-vis Islam has been a joke that’s only been intensified under the current fecal regime. Bush jr. was no better in picking the right strategy to follow in carrying out the propaganda war against the jihad, but the former admin was of course much closer to to the truth than Obama’s, at least he tired to use the ‘Islamofacism’ label, but discontinued it after the predictable uproar by the Left and Islamic communities.

Here we have once again, ample proof that Islam is always on the offensive, even when it’s not engaged in any violence, it’s always on the move. It refuses to stand idle, no forward motion means stalling for the Mussulman and as Barry Rubin points out, the most respected Islamic university in the Islamic world:

“is now calling for a seventh-century-style Jihad against non-Muslim lands even if the victims cannot be accused of attacking Muslim-ruled lands.”

Whenever Islam feels itself in ascendency, the’ mask of peace’ comes off and the trouble begins. The Tundra Tabloids received the following comment from a blogger in India, Raj, who offers the following birds-eye witness of what he’s seen on the ground in India:

Raj: Well, I respect your view and agree completely, having lived in India which has one of the largest Muslim populations, I know it for a fact that most Muslims will masquerade as law abiding people who like a multi cultural society are at least ok with it. But the conditioning each Muslim receives growing up from his/her elders, their religious leaders (Imams and Maulvi’s) and from their holy book, never leaves them. Most Muslim men (and women too even though the law is the toughest on them) will fight for and murder to bring about Sharia when the time comes. In fact, the message to have 7,8, 9 children is openly blared from speakers whenever you pass a mosque in a Muslim neighborhoods during their ‘religious’ meetings – “Alah wants you to create an army of soldiers to fight kaffirs (Infidels)”

Those people who hail from communities that rub up against Islamic communities always have a different story to tell about their ‘multicultural experience’ with Islam, which is in fact a highly aggressive monoculture that strips previous cultures bare, leaving something entirely alien in its place. Now, here is Barry Rubin’s timely piece on the new fatwa issued by Dr.Imad Mustafa. KGS

Two Big Developments: Lebanon: Government Falls; Egypt/Islam: Jihad? We’re Just Getting Started!

[…] An extraordinarily important fatwa has been issued by Dr. Imad Mustafa, the professor on that subject at al-Azhar University, the world’s most important Islamic university. He began by stating the well-known doctrine of “defensive jihad,” that is Muslims must go to war against infidels who attack them. Of course, the word “attack” is often spread rather thinly to justify aggression.

But now Mustafa has publicly and explicitly come up with a new concept, one that up until now was supposedly restricted to groups like al-Qaida:

“Then there is another type of fighting against the non-Muslims known as offensive jihad…which is to pursue the infidels into their own land without any aggression [on their part]….

“…Two schools [of Islamic jurisprudence] have ruled that offensive jihad is permissible in order to secure Islam’s border, to extend God’s religion to people in cases where the governments do not allow it, such as the Pharaoh did with the children of Israel, and to remove every religion but Islam from the Arabian peninsula….”

What does it mean about extending “God’s religion,” i.e., Islam? On the surface, “where the governments do not allow it” and the reference to Pharaoh seems to imply the complete prohibition of Islam.

But in the current context, I think this means that it is permissible to wage jihad on a country.if anything “necessary” to Islam according to (hardline) clerics’ interpretations is blocked (polygamy, child marriage, special privileges at work places, building mosques anywhere, permitting the wearing of headscarves or burqas, and so on).

In practice, according to this doctrine, then, any non-Muslim can be attacked anywhere in the world. Thus, mainstream, powerful clerics are now calling for a seventh-century-style Jihad against non-Muslim lands even if the victims cannot be accused of attacking Muslim-ruled lands! Merely to “extend God’s religion” to others is a sufficient motive. Mustafa says that two of Islam’s main schools have always endorsed offensive Jihad but I doubt if he would have made that argument ten or twenty years ago.
