Now we know why Muslims are greatly represented in the death tolls of al-Qaida attacks. Refusal to adhere to the four orthodox schools of Islamic jurisprudence comes at a cost. Remember folks, the jihad is all about instilling the sharia for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Jordanian cleric extols jihad at funeral of AQAP fighter
Washington—A Jordanian cleric from Abu Musab al Zarqawi’s home town of Zarqa recently gave a speech praising a jihadist who was killed in a US drone strike in Yemen. The cleric, Omar Mahdi Zeidan, heaped praise upon Abu Thabit al Muhajir, another Jordanian from Zarqa, who was also known as Abdul Rahman al Urduni. Zeidan’s speech was recorded on video and released by the Sinam al-Islam jihadist forum on June 25, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which translated the video.
In the funeral speech, Zeidan offered religious justification for waging jihad against “apostate” Muslims who refuse to abide by sharia, or Islamic law. Zeidan quoted numerous verses from the Quran, hadiths (sayings attributed to the Prophet Mohammad [Peace Be Upon Him]), and writings of influential Muslim scholars in his effort to provide justification for waging jihad against Muslims as well as non-Muslims. Zeidan argued that it is important to fight Muslim “disbelievers” before taking on the West.
