Muslim Email List: “Beat to Death the Crusaders”
At the Village Voice, George Smith reprints messages from a Muslim email list; it’s hard to tell whether Smith intends us to read these as valid arguments (he probably does; it’s the Voice, after all), but the level of hatred and racism (the word “kuffar” is used routinely) in these emails is truly disturbing: After the London Bombings: ‘Our Dead Have Names Too’. (Hat tip: linh.)
A few non-Muslim analysts not suffering from delusions of grandeur understood the Muslims better. They understood that the cockroaches ruling Muslim lands and their government-backed “scholars” don’t reflect Muslim character. These non-Muslims probably studied Islamic history and Qur’aan. For example, on the eve of the allied invasion, a classified report by the National Intelligence Council (NIC), the American intelligence community’s centre for strategic thinking, predicted that an American-led invasion of Iraq would increase support for political Islam. Douglas Jehl reported in the New York Times in December 2004, the NIC warned “Iraq and other possible conflicts in the future could provide recruitment, training grounds, technical skills and language proficiency for a new class of terrorists who are ‘professionalised’ and for whom political violence becomes an end in itself.” Bear in mind that the New York Times is one of the leading mouthpieces for the Kuffar. The report then translated in ”Islam” talk is basically saying that the Mujahideen would be boosted and become more proficient as a result of a crusade against Iraq.
How true that was, because basically this is what the Qur’aan says.
190. And fight in the Way of Allah against those who fight you.
191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Fitnah (reversion to polytheism, turning a disbeliever after one has believed in Allah) is worse than killing.
if they (Disbelievers) turn back to enmity then take them and kill them wherever you find them, and choose no friend or helper from among them. (v 89) The Mujahideen understand this to mean exactly what it says. There are no boundaries. The Crusade is global and so the Jihad has to be global.
Surah 2 section 194:
The sacred month is for the sacred month, and for the prohibited things, there is the law of retribution (redress, equality in retaliation) (Qisas). Then whoever transgresses the prohibition against you, you transgress likewise against him. And fear Allah and know that Allah is with the pious.
This means you do to the Crusaders what they do to you. Islam allows retaliation-like for like. This means that the relatives of the Iraqis who were beaten to death in Abu Ghraib have the right to beat to death the crusaders who killed their loved ones. The Muslims who had their transportation, hospitals, water treatment plants and industries bombed continuously since 1991 have the right given by Allah to do to the Kuffar what the Kuffar did to them! This is what happened in London today.
