Muslim joins Taliban after honor killing his teen daughter

What a pious and devout man – a shining example for the ummah.

A recent survey showed that 91 percent of honor killings worldwide are committed by Muslims, and 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims. This is no surprise. A manual of Islamic law approved by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates that “retaliation is obligatory…against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” In other words, Islamic law sets no penalty for a parent who kills his child. Also, the legal codes of Jordan, Syria, and other Muslim countries have substantially reduced penalties for honor murders as compared to other murders, and Islamic clerics have resisted efforts to stiffen penalties for honor killings.

AFFI honor killing awareness bus and taxi ads which were removed because the ads offended Muslims. Why? do they support honor violence and killing?

FATHER JOINS TALIBAN AFTER KILLING HIS TEEN DAUGHTER FOR ELOPING IN BADGHIS

By Khaama Press – Sun Jul 02 2017:

A MAN IN NORTHWESTERN BAGHIS PROVINCE OF AFGHANISTAN HAS KILLED HIS FOURTEEN YEAR OLD DAUGHTER IN THE LATEST CASE OF HONOR KILLING AFTER SHE ALLEGEDLY ELOPED WITH HER FRIEND.

According to the local government officials, the incident took place in the outskirts of the provincial capital of Badghis and the perpetrator has reportedly joined the Taliban ranks after the murder.

Provincial governor’s spokesman Zahir Bahand confirmed the incident and said the teenage girl was shot dead by her father in Qala-e-Naw area after she allegedly eloped with her friend.

Bahand further added that the victim’s friend who was believed to be eighteen years old was also shot dead by the man.

He said the man managed to flee the area after the brutal killing and has joined the Taliban ranks.

This comes incidents involving violence against women including rape of young children by armed individuals are on the rise in the remote parts of the country amid rampant violence against the women.

The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission officials said last year that they have recorded around 3,000 cases of violence against women and young girls.

The officials further added that the cases belonged to the year 1395 and mainly involved rape cases, forced marriage, and other forms of domestic violence.

AUSTRALIAN PAEDIATRICIAN DUBBED ‘DR JIHAD’ AFTER JOINING ISIS IN SYRIA CALLS ON MUSLIMS IN THE WEST TO JOIN TERROR GROUP IN TWISTED PROPAGANDA VIDEO

  • Perth-born Tareq Kamleh left Australia two years ago to join the terror group
  • He appears in a new video released on Tuesday with a long, straggly beard
  • Sitting in a tunnel, he condemns Muslims in the West for becoming ‘stagnant’
  • He also taunts Donald Trump for sending American soldiers to fight ISIS

By Khaleda Rahman For Daily Mail Australia

A paediatrician who left Australia in 2015 to join ISIS has resurfaced in a new propaganda video, urging Muslims in the West to join the terror group.

Perth-born Tareq Kamleh – dubbed ‘Dr Jihad’ – is seen for the first time in more than two years in an official six-minute video released on Tuesday.

Now going by Abu Yousef al-Australi, he appears pale, with dark circles under his eyes and sporting a long, straggly beard.

In the clip, he is seen treating a child in a hospital before speaking to the camera while sat in a narrow tunnel under the Syrian city of Raqqa, urging Muslims in the West to travel to join the so-called caliphate.

Tareq Kamleh – dubbed ‘Dr Jihad’

Perth-born Tareq Kamleh – dubbed ‘Dr Jihad’ – is seen for the first time in more than two years in an official six-minute video released on Tuesday

Before his spiel, Kamleh – dressed in scrubs – is seen appearing to treat a child in a hospital, who he says has been injured in a blast.

‘Is this one of the terrorists that America’s wanting to hit?’ he says, pointing to the little girl, who he later reveals has died.

‘We are dealing with the countless numbers of burnt children that are coming in now from the continuous bombings that America is dropping on us.’

He adds: ‘Is this really a war on terrorism?

‘Is there no shame in those Muslims still in the West?’

Then, clad in combat gear and brandishing a rifle, Kamleh sits in a narrow tunnel and chides Muslims who haven’t made ‘hijrah’ to join ISIS.

‘It really surprises me how the Muslim nation is acting at the moment and how stagnant you have all become,’ he says.

‘We are under continuous bombing here and we are fighting hard to try and hold the lands of Islam.

‘What more will it take for it to be a justified cause for you to come here and fight?

‘And if you can’t come here, jihad itself isn’t only in the lands of Syria or only in the lands of Iraq.’

He adds: ‘You are living in the countries that are sending us rockets. You are living in the countries that are killing Muslims in here and you are still paying taxes to them.

‘You have no honour. You have no self-respect. You have no love for fellow Muslims.’

Kamleh then says he has a message for the ‘kuffar’ (non-believers) before he begins taunting US President Donald Trump.

‘Now, a message to the Kuffar, to old Trump,’ he says.

‘We were so happy because for a long time we have been waiting for your soldiers to meet us on the ground here.

‘And your effeminate predecessor Obama danced around this subject for too long.

‘He refused to send us your soldiers and now we know they are on the lands wanting to enter our lands.

‘We are really eagerly awaiting your attempt to enter our cities.’

Chillingly, he concludes: ‘We love death more than you love life.’

Kamleh’s former colleagues, at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide and Mickey Base Hospital in Queensland, accused him of being lazy and leading a lavish playboy lifestyle while in Australia.

His appearance in the propaganda video comes as Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Trump and other world leaders head to Germany for the G20 summit.

The summit will kick off on Friday with a leader-level discussion behind closed doors on terrorism, at which Mr Turnbull will call for cyberspace to be treated just as seriously as the battlefield in countering ISIS.

Muslim tribal council orders honor killing of 13-year-old girl

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case the victim was the murderer’s sister, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.

The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Relatives kill teenage girl for ‘honour’ on tribal jirga’s orders in Khyber Agency,” by Abdullah Malik, Dawn, June 30, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A teenage girl was reportedly murdered by her relatives allegedly on the orders of a tribal jirga in Khyber Agency on Friday, in what the local political administration said was a case of ‘honour’ killing.

The jirga had issued the orders to kill 13-year-old Naghma after it emerged that she had allegedly attempted to run away with two young men, an official said.

After she allegedly ran away with them, the boys abandoned Naghma during the journey “out of fear”. She was later taken into custody by the security forces and released on bail upon assurance by the girl’s relatives that they would not kill her, Assistant Political Agent Niaz Mohammad told local reporters.

However, despite their assurances, Naghma’s relatives shot her dead three days later inside a house in Landi Kotal tehsil and silently buried her body in a local graveyard….

Meanwhile, a journalist belonging to Khyber Agency claimed that the two boys who allegedly ran away with the girl are in the custody of the same jirga. He claimed that the boys’ relatives will make every effort to secure their freedom, but it is possible that they too will be killed on the jirga’s orders….

Hundreds of women are murdered every year in Pakistan, often by their own relatives, for going against their families’ wishes in matters of love and marriage.

The perpetrators of so-called honour killings often walk free because they can seek forgiveness for the crime from another family member.

The Aurat Foundation’s annual report of 2016 showed 7,852 cases of violence against women.

According to Saima Munir, who works for the Aurat Foundation, there has been a 70 per cent increase in honour killings in the past year.

Muslim Student Union President: Read the Qur’an, oppress white people, turn UK Islamic

Imagine the uproar if a Christian student had expressed a desire to “oppress” any group, and said that everyone should read the Bible so that there would be a Christian takeover of Britain. But this will gain little, if any, notice in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain.

In any case, I do agree with Zamzam Ibrahim on one thing: everyone should read the Qur’an, so as to be informed about what is coming.

“Student union president sparks controversy by saying she would like to ‘oppress white people’, everyone should read the Koran and that men and women must not be friends,” by Darren Boyle, MailOnline, July 1, 2017:

A Muslim student union leader has claimed she would like to ‘oppress white people’ and has suggested there would be an Islamic takeover if more people read the Koran.

Zamzam Ibrahim, who was elected President of Salford University’s Student Union in March, also suggested friendship between men and women is un-Islamic and is opposed to the government’s anti-radicalisation strategy.

Ms Ibrahim, who is a Swedish-Somali described the government’s prevent strategy as ‘disastrous’ and ‘racist’.

In one message she responded to a question on AskFM on what book everyone should read. She said: ‘The Quaraan. We would have an Islamic takeover!’

In another message on the topic of the possibility of friendship between a man and a woman, she replied: ‘I’ve had this debate with many friends! Maybe in some cases but Islamically it’s incorrect for girls to be friends with a guy anyway!

‘So I’m gonna say NO not the kind of friendship they can have with the same gender there is always boundaries.’

In one tweet from May 9, 2012 under the hashtag #ifIwasPresident, she wrote: ‘I’d oppress white people just to give them a taste of what they put us through!’

Ms Ibrahim was also recently elected to the National Union of Students Block of 15 committee….

Sudan: From secular socialist pan Arabist to Shari’a ruled extremist Salafist Regime

Read this fascinating, but true story, from the Pakistani publication “Dawn” by Nadeem F. Paracha on how the Sudan was transformed from a secular socialist pan-Arabist regime, in the mold of the late Egyptian leader Nasser, into a genocidal Jihadist regime under the regime of military strong man and President Gaafar Nimeiry who ruled from 1969 to 1985.

He succumbed to Muslim Brotherhood doctrine of former exile Hassan al-Turabi who hosted Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in the Sudan in the 1990’s following the seizure of power by current long term President Omar al-Bashir onm 1989.

Nimeiry transformed the Sudan into an Islamist ruled under Shari’a and promoted the genocidal doctrine of oppressing indigenous Black Africans. Amazingly, Nimiery was a US ally during the Iran Iraq war, and despite evidence of Sunni extremism Bashirt forged an alliance with both Iran’s Shiite Ayatollahs and welcomed Bin Laden during his exile from Saudi Arabia.

Note these excerpts from Paracha’s article in Dawn:

From the 1990s onward it has been declared a pariah state by the US (for ‘supporting terrorism against the US’). The common perception of this country is that of a chaotic land ravaged by crazy dictators nurturing crazier ‘Islamic terrorists.’

[…]

In May 1969, a group in the Sudanese military, operating secretly as the Free Officers Movement and led by the 38-year-old colonel, Gafaar Nimeiry, toppled the weak civilian government and declared Sudan’s second Martial Law.

Nimeiry was a great admirer of the charismatic Egyptian nationalist leader, Gamal Abul Nasser. Nasser immediately recognised the new Sudanese regime and this also attracted the interest of the Soviet Union which was aiding Nasser since the 1950s.

This way Nimeiry pulled Sudan into the Cold War. When the Soviets and Egypt began to dish out economic and military aid to Sudan, the US and its allies became concerned about ‘the spread of communism in Africa.’

Nimeiry had used pro-communist factions in the military to launch his coup. He was also helped by the strong labour, trade and student unions controlled by the Sudanese Communist Party.

With Egyptian and Soviet aid, as well as help from the newly installed radical regime of Colonel Qaddafi in Libya, Nimeiry began to implement ‘socialist’ economic policies, nationalising whatever little industry Sudan had. He also struck a peace treaty with the leaders in the restive Christian-majority south.

Though Sudan did not plunge into anarchy like Syria, Somalia, Yemen or Iraq, its history of the past 60 years or so is one of the most vivid reflections of how during the Cold War (1949-89), major international powers manoeuvered regimes in various Muslim-majority countries for various economic and strategic gains.

They bolstered those regimes and then turned against them once certain ideological and geopolitical experiments which they had supported began to backfire and became ‘Frankenstein’ in nature.

A look at the rise and fall of perhaps Sudan’s most enigmatic leader, Gafaar Nimeiry, can clearly unfold the complex and highly mutable ideological and geopolitical intricacies which eventually led to the anarchic destruction of so many Muslim countries after the Cold War.

In 1970, the Ansar rose up against the regime’s ‘secular’ and ‘communist’ policies and launched a militant movement in its stronghold, the Aba Island. The Ansar were supported by the Sudanese faction of the Muslim Brotherhood, a largely Egyptian organisation which was brutally suppressed by Nasser. The Ansar and the Larry Brothers
erhood were being financed by Saudi Arabia.

The Sudanese military, supported by Egyptian air force, crushed the uprising, bombing the Ansar’s headquarters and vanquishing the party. In 1971, after banning all political parties, Nimeiry formed the Sudan Socialist Union (SSU), turning the country into a single-party ‘socialist’ state. He also began ousting the more radical communists from the government, accusing them of ‘blackmail.’

[…]

In July 1976, Nimeiry faced a serious coup attempt orchestrated by officers sympathetic to the Ansar. Nimeiry responded by ordering severe crackdown on Islamic groups, killing over 400 members of the Ansar.

Economic growth largely failed to trickle down and the radical Islamic groups, especially the Muslim Brotherhood, vehemently criticised the regime for its lopsided economic policies, its social liberalism and for becoming an unquestioning ally of the United States.

[…]

In 1977 Nimeiry moved to reach reconciliation with the Islamic groups. He agreed to release hundreds of political prisoners and allow the return of opposition groups into mainstream politics, even though Sudan remained a one-party state.

In 1979, Nimeiry also recalled the Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood’s main ideologue, Hasan al-Turabi, from exile and made him the Justice Minister. The regime however remained close to the US.

Turabi began to exercise greater influence over Niamey, who donned off his ‘western clothes’ and began to wear traditional Sudanese dress and turban. Corruption became rampant in state and government institutions and even though the US continued to dish out millions of dollars in financial aid, much of this aid landed in the pockets of crooked government and military officials and bureaucrats.

In 1983, as the economy began to decline, creating food shortages and widespread unemployment, protests erupted on the streets. As a reaction and on the advice of Turabi and the growing numbers of Muslim Brotherhood members in the regime, Nimeiry introduced strict ‘Shariah’ laws.

Amputation of limbs for supposed thieves was introduced and such punishments, including floggings and hangings, were televised live on state television. Sale of alcohol was banned and Crockett wrote that in one such exhibition, Nimeiry, who had been a heavy drinker all his life, appeared at an anti-alcohol rally to smash beer bottles against a wall!

The amputations, the floggings and the executions which was all televised live worried Sudan’s allies in the US and Europe. But the aid continued to come in and US President Ronald Reagan actually praised Nimeiry for keeping communism at bay in the region.

In 1985, the economy almost completely collapsed and a severe drought killed thousands of poor Sudanese in the rural areas. The civil war reappeared after the region’s Christian majority saw the introduction of ‘Islamic laws’ as a negation of what the South was promised in the 1970s.

Nimeiry refused to allow aid agencies to distribute food in drought-struck areas. In one meeting he shouted at an official who was requesting him to allow food trucks to reach the victims of the drought. He told him “No! They (the aid organisations) are undermining my revolution!”

In 1985, as protests against the regime grew and became violent, Nimeiry flew out to the US for a meeting with his main supporter, President Reagan. But when he was in the US, General Abdel Salam Swar toppled the regime and imposed the country’s third Martial Law. Sadiq Al-Siddiq of the Ummah Party became Prime Minister.

End result

A series of democratic governments (mostly uneasy and weak coalitions) tried to reverse Nimeiry’s extreme policies and convince the International Monetary Fund to bail Sudan out of its deepening economic quagmire.

In 1989, General Ahmad Bashir toppled the civilian regime in a military coup. Bashir revived the harsh laws imposed by the Nimeiry regime (in the name of Shariah) and went to war against the South.

Under him, Sudan became a pariah state and a hotbed and refuge for radical Islamists. It is believed that by the late 1990s, the situation of the country was such that had oil not been discovered here and the Chinese not stepped in to become main consumers of this oil, Sudan would have descended into complete anarchy just as Somalia had done in the early 1990s.

Killer of 3 Louisiana police officers had ‘a printout in his car from an Islamic holy book’

Long was probably finding justification for gratuitous violence, and there is plenty of that in Islamic holy texts.

Gavin Long

“La. cop-killer left suicide note, Islamic verse, trail of rage,” Boston Herald, July 1, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The military veteran who killed three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge last summer left behind a suicide note, a prayer from an Islamic holy book and an online trail of his rage against police.

Two days after a white police officer shot and killed a black man in Louisiana’s capital, Gavin Long searched the internet for addresses, phone numbers and other personal information belonging to the two officers involved in the July 5 shooting of Alton Sterling, a prosecutor’s report revealed Friday.

Less than two weeks later, the 29-year-old black man from Kansas City, Mo., traveled to Baton Rouge and ambushed law enforcement officers outside a convenience store and car wash near police headquarters.

Armed with a semi-automatic rifle that he legally purchased, Long fatally shot three officers and wounded three others on July 17 before tactical officers killed him, ending a gun battle that lasted nearly 14 minutes that Sunday morning….

He also left a printout in his car from an Islamic holy book that was mostly in Arabic….

VIDEO: 12 Facts About Islam & the Prophet Muhammad – In Their Text’s Own Words

The Fuel Project notes:

What do the Islamic texts really teach Muslims? There is good reason to take a deep look at what the Koran (Quran), Hadiths and other Islamic holy books command of their followers. Yes, a Muslim can point to noble aspects of the teachings, but will a Muslim share with you the more virulent teachings?

A Muslim is much less likely to share with an unbeliever the acts of Muhammad that today’s civilized society would find abhorrent. Also, they are not likely to explain their oppressive jurisprudence that is antithetical to most civilized cultures on Earth. It is time, for westerners in particular, to really understand what this ideology fully entails.

Historical facts can be interpreted in different ways but what is written in black and white cannot be denied. Especially, if what was written has been accepted knowledge for 1500 years since the advent of Islam.

Court: Sharia police may patrol streets

We have also seen Sharia vigilantes in Britain. In both Britain and Germany, authorities cracked down on them. But now a German court has allowed them to operate, and even if they’re ultimately stopped again, time is on their side. In a few years, they will be able to start up operations again, with non-Muslim authorities too weak and compromised to do anything to stop them.

“German court: Sharia police may patrol streets,” by Mordechai Sones, Arutz Sheva, June 29, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A court in Germany has authorized a group of self-appointed Sharia police to continue enforcing Islamic law in the city of Wuppertal. The law they were cleared of vioilating outlaws uniforms that are threatening, such as those of Hitler’s brownshirts.

The issue has been brewing ever since 2014, when German politicians reacted strongly to reports of young Salafists conducting nightly “Sharia police” patrols in the city, ordering people to stop various activities, according to the International Business Times.

The men were photographed wearing orange hi-visibility jackets emblazoned with the words “Sharia police” on the back.

They reportedly approached passersby near nightclubs and gambling houses to deter them from un-islamic activities such as drinking alcohol and gambling….

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere earlier said that the civilians could not patrol the streets instead of German police.

“Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil,” de Maiziere told the German daily Bild.

“Nobody can take it upon themselves to abuse the good name of the German police,” he added….

ISIS justifies sex slavery of infidel women by quoting the Qur’an

“Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive? Allah the almighty said, ‘successful are the believers who guard their chastity, except from their wives or the captives and slaves, that their right hands posses for then they are free from blame (Koran 23:5-6). Note: the words ‘captives and slaves’ don’t exist in the original version of Quran.”

With that “note,” Morocco World News is trying to give the impression that the Islamic State is playing fast and loose with the Qur’an in justifying slavery. This is, unfortunately, not the case. Those whom “their right hands possess” are universally understood by Islamic exegetes to be referring to slaves; even Islamic apologetic sources that try to minimize the reality of slavery in Islam acknowledge that this term refers to slave women.

“ISIS’s “Science” of Slavery: How ISIS Justifies Enslavement of Yezidi Women with Islam,” by Johanna Higgs and Amal Ben Hadda, Morocco World News, June 26, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Slavery, possibly one of the worst human horrors occurring on this earth at this time. In 2014, ISIS invaded the small town of Sinjar in Northern Iraq and began to carry out what has now been described as genocide against the Yezidi people. Thousands of young women and girls were dragged off to be sold as sex slaves in markets.

Yezidi women who have returned from captivity have described a system of organized rape and sexual assault, sexual slavery and forced marriage. Guidelines for slavery have been established and they have repeatedly used a narrow and selective interpretation of the Quran to justify their barbarous acts of sexual violence.

According to Amnesty International, it is estimated that there are still as many as 3 800 girls being held as slaves by ISIS.

In a small makeshift IDP camp in the centre of Erbil Bese Qawal, Hana Xwededa and Fayza Haji, three Yezidi women who fled their homes in Sinjar when the violence with ISIS began to unfold. They had spent over a year living with another small group of Yezidi’s in a few ramshackle buildings with little certainty as to what the future would hold. As they sat in their small home they quietly described the horror that forced them to flee,

‘When the first assaults started, ISIS tried to stop us from fleeing. They wanted to kill the men and take the women. They tried to capture us but we managed to escape into the mountains. They burned our home, we came here with nothing,’ said Qawal as she leaned back against the wall. All three women sat somberly in the room as small children darted in and out.

‘They wanted to take the women as slaves. Our family is safe but we know some of the girls who were captured. They are selling girls as young as 8 or 9 years old in markets.’

When asked why they believed that ISIS was targeting the Yezidis, Qawal looked at the ground and replied quietly, ‘by god I don’t know. We are poor people.’

The Yezidi’s have been persecuted by the surrounding Muslim communities for many centuries. A minority in the region the Yezidis constitute only 1.5 percent of Iraq’s estimated population of 34 million. Of Kurdish descent, the Yezidis are generally considered to be a pre Islamic sect with an oral tradition as opposed to written scripture, though there are several ideas as to where the Yezidi culture originated.

For ISIS this makes them unbelievers of the worst kind, more so than Christians and Jews who are considered to have some limited protections according to their descriptions in Quran as ‘people of the book.’

It is for this reason, that ISIS has proclaimed their right to enslave Yezidi women.

ISIS considers their rules of enslavement as a ‘science that has been almost absent in modern Islamic jurisprudence,’ or what is known as fiqh. The word figh is an Arabic term meaning ‘full understanding’ and refers to the body of Islamic law extracted from detailed Islamic sources.

In a pamphlet released by ISIS, they highlight the need to practice this ‘science’ throughout the Islamic Caliphate, which they seek to establish throughout the world.

This pamphlet, through its questions and answers, uses interpretations of the Quran, as defined by various Sunni Islamic scholars to justify their acts of slavery. These scholars, using interpretations as defined by the exegesis, use the term ‘right hand possession’ as meaning ‘female slave’.

Some of the questions and answers of the pamphlet are as follows,

Question 3: Can all unbelieving women be taken captive?

There is no dispute among the scholars that it is permissible to take such women who are characterized by original unbelief such as the women from among People of the Book ie Jews and Christians.

Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive?

Allah the almighty said, ‘successful are the believers who guard their chastity, except from their wives or the captives and slaves, that their right hands posses for then they are free from blame (Koran 23:5-6).

Note: the words “captives and slaves” don’t exist in the original version of Quran

Question 6: Is it permissible to sell a female captive?

It is permissible to buy, sell or give as a gift female captives and slaves for they are merely property.

The literal interpretation in Arabic of the term ‘right hand’ means any promise or commitment that must be observed and respected. So the term, ‘right hands possession’ semantically means the obligation to fulfill promises. This could be relevant to different contexts, particularly those regarding social commitments such as caring for orphans, marriage, and recently, this term was referred to in relation to surrogacy. In the Quran, both men and women are called to respect what their right hands possess.

However, when the word ‘possession’ is added, ISIS interprets this as female slave.

Through this traditional interpretation of Quran, ISIS has publically and officially sanctioned their use of slavery and rape. The ‘right hands possession,’ means for them that ‘religiously’ they can have sex with ‘unbelieving’ women, virgins and young girls, captured during war even if it is outside the institution of marriage. They consider this as a reward for their war efforts and is a motivator for soldiers to fight….

Sharia Northern Ireland: Three men arrested for “anti-Islamic material”

Yes, Islamic Terrorism Really Is Islamic

Ibn Warraq’s new book makes clear the irrefutable case. My latest in PJ Media:

It is a symptom of the denial and willful ignorance that blankets the present age that this book even had to be written, and that Ibn Warraq, a historian and social theorist of preeminent insight and wisdom, should have had to devote his considerable talents to it.

Nonetheless, we can be grateful that he has given us The Islam in Islamic Terrorism: The Importance of Beliefs, Ideas, and Ideology, as this book is breathtakingly comprehensive despite its quite manageable length, and is, quite simply, irrefutable. If there remains in the world anyone who holds that Islam is a Religion of Peace and yet has sufficient intellectual honesty and acumen to consider these arguments on their merits, this is the book to give.

First there is the necessary work of clearing away the nonsense. Ibn Warraq takes up each of the major excuses that are commonly given for Islamic jihad violence — that it is all about Israel, or all about U.S. foreign policy, or all about poverty and lack of opportunity — and shows why each does not and cannot sufficiently explain the phenomenon at hand.

Then he treads ground that has been much-tilled before: the exhortations to jihad violence in the Qur’an and Sunnah. But here, even the most well-informed reader will find much that is new, especially the detailed description of the Islamic concept of al-walaa wal baraa, commanding the right and forbidding the wrong, and how it leads to jihad attacks against unbelievers.

Also highly rewarding is Ibn Warraq’s examination of a subject that receives insufficient attention: the goals of jihad. Authorities in Europe and North America continue to treat jihad attacks as discrete criminal acts that have no necessary connection to any wider movement or imperative. Ibn Warraq shows here, with copious references to Islamic scholars ancient and modern, that jihad is a means of spreading Islam, and that the “greater jihad” — the spiritualized idea so beloved of Western apologists — actually has quite slim foundation in the Islamic sources, and is given scant attention throughout Islamic history by the religion’s foremost theologians.

The most rewarding sections of this amply rewarding book are Ibn Warraq’s surveys of jihad in theory and practice from the death of Muhammad up to the present day.

This includes a look at the Kharijites, who are often invoked by contemporary Islamic apologists as the precursors of modern terrorists and the archetypal Islamic heretics. Ibn Warraq, by contrast, demonstrates that “the fundamental principle for the Kharijites was that the Islamic community must be based on the Koran.” Those who claim the Kharijites were twisting and hijacking Islam say the same thing about contemporary jihadis, with just as little justification.

The historical survey that makes up the balance of the book is its most illuminating and valuable material. While many informed readers will know that the Qur’an exhorts jihad and that Muhammad preached and practiced it, few will be familiar with the history of jihad violence in Ninth and Tenth Century Baghdad, or with the Qadizadeli movement in 17th Century Constantinople, or with the career of Ibn Abd al-Wahhab (of Wahhabi fame) and his movement.

This is jihad doctrine as applied by Muslims throughout history. Readers will see immediately that Muslim obedience to the exhortations to jihad warfare in the Qur’an and Sunnah has been remarkably consistent in form since the beginnings of Islam.

Those who would peruse this material and then still insist that Ibn Warraq is “cherry picking” from both Islamic scripture and history, leaving out both the peaceful exhortations and the fabled eras of peace and tolerance, would be willfully and incurably blind. There are no such exhortations of any force, and no such eras, as any serious student of renowned al-Andalus will know.

The facts are, in the final analysis, quite simple: the Qur’an teaches jihad warfare. So does Muhammad. So do the mainstream Islamic theologians and jurists. And Muslims have consequently waged jihad warfare throughout history.
