Barack Obama, while eulogizing journalist James Foley who was recently beheaded by ISIS on TV, said, “Let’s be clear about ISIL…ISIL speaks for no religion…their ideology is bankrupt.”
Cameron said “IS [ISIS/ISIL] are not Muslims.”
Gateway Pundit published this cartoon from a tweet in which ISIS mocks them for saying they are not the true Islamists – the “Cross people” who think they know what Islam is, ISIS wrote.
Underneath the tweet was the following which was translated by Gateway Pundit:
Cross” leaders [meaning Christian] deny the Islamic State
Cameron: the Islamic state are not Muslims
Obama: State does not belong to any faith or religion
We are being told by our leaders that ISIS are not Muslims, but does that show a lack of understanding of what ISIS really is?
One of our writers, Harvey Miller sent this to me:
Read the criminal code of Muhammad – the Quran: 9:29 – “fight the infidel until they pay the jizya and feel themselves subdued.”
Now look at the actions of ISIS against Christians in Mosul who were given 3 options: convert, pay jizya or die.
They are the true Muslims.
The Quran: 9:29 – English Translation from the Quranic Arabic Corpus which shows seven parallel translations for the 29th verse of Chapter 9, sūrat l-tawbah (The Repentance).
Sahih International: Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
Pickthall: Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.
Yusuf Ali: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Shakir: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
Muhammad Sarwar: Fight against those People of the Book who have no faith in God or the Day of Judgment, who do not consider unlawful what God and His Messenger have made unlawful, and who do not believe in the true religion, until they humbly pay tax with their own hands.
Mohsin Khan: Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Arberry: Fight those who believe not in God and the Last Day and do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.
Jizya is the money, or tribute conquered non-Muslims historically pay to Islamic overlords with submission to safeguard their existence. It serves as a reminder of their inferior status. It is also meant to hasten conversion to Islam.
It is not only ISIS demanding jizya.
Last year, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood ordered Coptic Christians to convert to Islam or pay ‘jizya’ tax. The Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters began forcing the roughly 15,000 Christian Copts of Dalga village in Egypt to pay a jizya tax as indicated in Koran 9:29. According to Washington Times, Fr. Yunis Shawqi, all Copts in the village, “without exception”, are being forced to pay the tax.
One study shows that non-Muslims are not regarded as citizens by any Islamic state, even if they are original natives of the land.
The State Department reports that the Pakistani government worked out a truce in 2009 with the Taliban that allowed them to collect the jizya against Sikhs. The government of the Philippines proposed giving taxing authority to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which would have legalized jizya against Christians in the southern Philippines. Even absent that proposal, Islamic militants in the Philippines have been levying the jizya against Christians for several years. Yemen still demands jizya from the small number of Jews left in that country. And so on.
Muslim faith is built on two solid principles: The Koran is the literal transcript of the words of God and there are the Hadiths which are an account of the exact words and deeds of Muhammad.
The Koran Verse 9:29 is explicit on this point. The Hadith of Ishaq 956 & 962 also says “He who withholds the Jizya is an enemy of Allah and His apostle”.
Muslim organizations that believe in the Wahhabi concept of Islam believe in it.
ISIS are following the Quran as they see it.
They only differ from other Islamic terror groups such as The Muslim Brotherhood by matter of degree and in some cases, they don’t appear to differ at all. Our administration has not made that connection. They pander to the Brotherhood and Hamas as if they were legitimate.
According to World Net Daily, a former, well-respected CIA agent, Clare Lopez, said the Obama administration switched sides in the war on terror and joined with the terrorists in The Muslim Brotherhood. She believes that it’s because the Brotherhood has infiltrated the administration.
She is not the first agent to express these views to Congress, but she was willing to come out publicly.
She said Obama has the basic same goals as the Brotherhood – “to remove American power and influence, including military forces, from Islamic lands.”
A member of President Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council known for controversial Twitter posts that seem to support the Muslim Brotherhood sent out this tweet in June.
@davereaboi #Silly. As I’ve said b4 inevitable that “Caliphate” returns. Choice only whether we support #EU like Muslim Union vision or not.
We should treat the caliphate like the EU? Is that where we are headed?
In the end, ISIS originated from the literal and radical translation of Islam. Cameron and Obama seem to say they are not in any way connected to Islam.
Like it or not, they are Muslims and denying radical Islam exists demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what we are dealing with. The Quran is the basis for the existence of organizations like ISIS. To suggest that ISIS originated from the ether and exists independently of Islam shows a lack of understanding.
If we don’t wise up in time, we will be at their mercy.
Daily Mail reported Saturday that a jihadi laptop seized in Syria contained a 19-page document with instructions for making weaponised bubonic plague, including the steps needed for testing it.
‘The advantage of biological weapons is that they do not cost a lot of money, while the human casualties can be huge,’ the document states, according to Foreignpolicy.com.
The manual explores a variety of means to spread “chemical or biological agent” over a wide area – including rockets and missiles, suicide missions in cars, and contamination of air-conditioning systems.
Mr. Obama, who does not have a strategy yet after four years, is playing golf today at Fort Belvoir, Maryland. The president is playing with junior White House aides Joe Paulsen, Luke Rosa, and Mike Brush. It’s his 37th time playing this year and the 194th time of his presidency, according to White House Dossier.
