Islam 101 = post-hijra islam
He went to the mosque and read the same koran, memorized it, studied the same hadiths and came away convinced shedding infidel blood would be pleasing to allah. Therein lies the problem, the post-hijra muslims are right and there is nothing that the four schools of islamic orthodoxy can do (nor would they) to steer them from this path, outside impressing upon them not to do this or that due to their own short-long term goals in the political realm. This is camel in the room.
Also, the mosque’s imam states the following standard apologetic flim-flam which totally discredits him and underlines my point, that they are entirely uninterested in ”combating violent Islamic impulses”, because they can’t, doing so would be anti-islam.
At the Islamic Center of Riverside, where Farook had worshipped until about two years ago, mosque director Mustapha Kuko described him as quiet, private and devoted to Koran study. “He knows that we believe that to take one life is to take all life. So for him to do the opposite of what we as Muslims believe … I don’t know,” Kuko said.
This verse being invoked was addressed to/for the Jews……….
“Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.”
Here it is for the Muslims…………..
Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,
It’s obvious that the imam knows this, better than I, yet…..the lies and obfuscations.
Rampage killers led secret life, hiding plans and weapons
Early Wednesday morning, Syed Rizwan Farook asked his mother for the sort of favor grandmothers love to grant: A few hours of baby-sitting. Farook told her that he and his wife, Tashfeen, had a doctor’s appointment and didn’t want to take their 6-month-old daughter.
In an account of the conversation provided by a relative through a local Islamic leader, the grandmother agreed. She was caring for the child at the couple’s Redlands home when news of a mass shooting in nearby San Bernardino broke.
Fearing her son and daughter-in-law were victims, “she started calling. No answer,” said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office. It was only after reporters started phoning her that she realized the couple were the assailants.
