Islam 101: The Religion of War

By Christopher Logan

Those that follow the subject of Islam constantly come across Muslims and Islamic apologists who will say anything to cover for Islam. Some of the most common are: that Islam is a religion of peace and another is the “defensive war” con.

Muslims and their apologists continually tell us that Muslims can only wage war in a defensive response, if they were attacked first. It is true that the Koran calls for Muslims to defend themselves, which is understandable. But there is much more to jihad than these defensive verses.

Defensive jihad:

002.190
YUSUFALI: Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.

002.191
YUSUFALI: And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

Muslims only tell us about the defensive jihad in attempt to get us to believe that most of the attacks perpetrated by Muslims on non-Muslims across the world do not fall in line with Islam. Therefore Islam cannot be blamed. Muslims know that if we cannot even name our enemy, then we will never achieve victory.

What Muslims do not want us to know is that there are several other reasons that they can wage war and terrorize non-Muslims. The first being that they can terrorize anyone who contends with Islam in anyway. Contend can mean something as simple as opposing or even debating.

008.012
YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers:
I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”

008.013
YUSUFALI:
This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.

Muslims also do not want us to know that the Bukahri Hadiths show us that Mohammad was ordered to fight on until all worshipped Allah.

Offensive jihad:

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

Lastly Muslims and their excuse makers will tell us that the Koran was written for that time period only. This is absolutely not true. The Koran specifically states that Mohammad’s actions should be followed by all Muslims until judgement day.

033.021
YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.

The bottle line is that the defensive jihad is not the only reason that Muslims can wage war. Islam is a religion of war and this war is forever, whether it is being waged violently or politically. It is time to fight back within the law. It is time to end all Muslim immigration before it is too late.
