Jihad Is Our Path…Yes Really.

 

 

Allah is our goal; the Prophet is our guide; the Quran is our constitution; Jihad is our way; and death for the glory of Allah is our greatest ambition.

The BBC doesn’t like to frighten you with tales of Islamic jurisprudence but a good story’s a good story and needs to be told.

Are you sitting comfortably?  Then we’ll begin.

The BBC, and many others, wax lyrical about the moderate Muslim Brotherhood and comment favourably upon the new Egyptian President for his ‘liberal’ concessions to allow Christians and women the right to not live in fear of oppression or discrimination.

“We Egyptians, Muslims and Christians, are advocates of civilisation and construction.”

“We will also work to make the Egyptian system of ethics… in addition to human values particularly in freedoms, respect for human rights, maintaining rights of women and children.”

An Indian news site does the work and reports what the BBC don’t:

“The Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in an election speech to Cairo University students.”

 

In the UK it takes Harry’s Place to shed some more light  upon what the future might really hold for Christians and women…and the Jews, revealed in an election speech by Morsi:

Mohamed Morsi: [in the 1920’s, the Egyptians] said: “The constitution is our Koran.” They wanted to show that the constitution is a great thing. But Imam [Hassan] Al-Banna, Allah’s mercy upon him, said to them: “No, the Koran is our constitution.”

The Koran was and will continue to be our constitution.

The Koran will continue to be our constitution.

Mohamed Morsi: The Koran is our constitution.

Crowds: The Koran is our constitution.

Mohamed Morsi: The Prophet Muhammad is our leader.

Crowds: The Prophet Muhammad is our leader.

Mohamed Morsi: Jihad is our path.

Crowds: Jihad is our path.

Mohamed Morsi: And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.

Crowds: And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.

Mohamed Morsi: Above all – Allah is our goal.

[…]

The shari’a, then the shari’a, and finally, the shari’a. This nation will enjoy blessing and revival only through the Islamic shari’a. I take an oath before Allah and before you all that regardless of the actual text [of the constitution]… Allah willing, the text will truly reflect [the shari’a], as will be agreed upon by the Egyptian people, by the Islamic scholars, and by legal and constitutional experts…

Rejoice and rest assured that this people will not accept a text that does not reflect the true meaning of the Islamic shari’a as a text to be implemented and as a platform. The people will not agree to anything else.”

 

 

Rejoice, rejoice, let the bells ring out…until the Muslim Brotherhood destroy the churches.

 

Then there is this is from Cranmer:

These are the kind of double standards practised by the fascist left both in Britain and Holland: Ignore the evils preached by Islamists but prosecute the non Muslims who reveal them.  

Amsterdam Gets a Harsh Lesson in Islam 101 Posted by Bruce Bawer Jun 29th, 2012

In January 2009 a Dutch court ordered Geert Wilders to be prosecuted for offending Muslims and inciting anti-Muslim hatred.

The complaint was based not on slurs, as such, but on factual statements made by Wilders, in his film Fitna and in various public venues, about Islamic beliefs and about actions inspired by those beliefs.

In June 2011, after a prolonged legal ordeal that cost Wilders greatly in time, money, and emotion, and that represented a disgrace to the tradition of Dutch liberty, he was finally acquitted.

In February of this year, the Islamic Students Association at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam invited Haitham al-Haddad, a British sharia scholar, to participate in a symposium, but when some of al-Haddad’s sophisticated theological statements about Jews (the usual “pigs and dogs” business) and about other topics came to light, members of the Dutch Parliament spoke out against the invitation, a media storm erupted, and VU canceled its plans.

Whereupon a venue in Amsterdam called De Balie, which sponsors debates, talks, plays, and sundry cultural and artistic events (and whose café is a good spot to grab a late-morning coffee), stepped in and offered al-Haddad their stage.

At the event that ensued, al-Haddad spelled out, and defended, many aspects of Islamic law, including the death penalty for apostates. Because of this specific statement about executing apostates, al-Haddad was reported to Dutch officials for having broken the same laws that Wilders had been put on trial for violating.

The other day, however, judicial authorities announced their determination that al-Haddad had not committed any offense and would therefore not be prosecuted for his remarks. Why? Supposedly because he had placed conditions on the death penalty for apostates.

I was curious to know exactly what he had said, so I searched for the debate on You Tube. Lucky me, there it was, all 76 minutes of it. I will recount it in some detail here because I think it provides a window on one or two bemusing aspects of the European mentality in our time.

As the event began, Yoeri Albrecht, director of De Balie and the evening’s host, explained that he’d decided to invite al-Haddad because it’s “important to discuss the position of Islam in the West.” He told the cleric that he was “very happy that you agreed” to come and wished him “a warm welcome.”

Albrecht had invited two other men to join him and al-Haddad onstage. One was Kustaw Bessems, a journalist associated with the Labor Party; the other was Tofik Dibi, a young Dutch-Moroccan Marxist, university student, and member of Parliament for the Green Left Party who has publicly protested against Wilders and who represents himself as an advocate for a modern, progressive Islam. Two members, in short, of leftist establishment parties; neither Wilders nor anyone else from his Freedom Party was asked to join the debate.

Bessums noted early on that while he finds al-Haddad’s views “despicable,” it was he who had personally taken the initiative to find an alternate venue after VU’s cancellation, because he believes in free speech (as if free speech means that fanatics have an automatic right to a platform).

Dibi’s questions for al-Haddad were a tad challenging, but his manner was respectful, even deferential. The imam, for his part, didn’t beat around the bush.

Dibi: “Do you have more right to speak about Islam than other Muslims?”
Al-Haddad: “Yeah, of course.”

Dibi: “Do you allow yourself to doubt?”

Al-Haddad: “There are certain things in Islam that are clear. No one can doubt them.”

Albrecht, for his part, sounded almost astonished when, having finally grasped al-Haddad’s key point, he said: “Outside of Islam, there is no truth?”

Al-Haddad: “No.”

Albrecht: “Could you understand that a lot of people would be afraid of this kind of thinking?”

Al-Haddad: “There is something called truth. There is right and wrong.”

When al-Haddad admitted that he supported stoning for crimes like adultery and apostasy, Albrecht exclaimed: “You can’t be serious!”

The host seemed to be genuinely gobsmacked. (Incidentally, the “conditions” al-Haddad had reportedly placed on the death penalty for apostates, and that had purportedly saved him from prosecution by the Dutch judiciary, were as follows: an apostate could not be executed until his case was handled in a Muslim country by a sharia judge.)

It emerged that earlier that day al-Haddad had refused to let a woman sit beside him on a TV show.

Asked now about women’s rights, al-Haddad insisted that men and women, being different, have different rights; that obliging women to wear headscarves is not an act of oppression any more than parking rules in Britain are; and that “women’s rights” need to be viewed in context.

A woman in the audience was given an opportunity to express her own shock at al-Haddad’s views on women: “I am really amazed at the way you think!” For a while, Albrecht gave up his seat onstage to her. “Who gives you the right,” she asked al-Haddad, “where do you get the right, to discuss women’s rights?”

I was shocked too. I was shocked that in the year 2012, these Dutch infidels – intellectual infidels – professed to be shocked, and indeed gave every indication of being sincerely shocked, when they heard a recognized Islamic authority spell out basic facts of Islamic belief.

These are the same basic facts that Geert Wilders has been talking about for years. It was for daring to speak these facts – for, in effect, reporting on the same barbaric beliefs and practices that al-Haddad was now not only describing but defending – that Wilders had been hauled into court on charges of having insulted al-Haddad’s faith.

Pim Fortuyn, Theo van Gogh, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Wilders – all of them had been reviled around the world as Islamophobes for stating these same facts. But on that evening at De Balie it was almost as if none of these critics of Islam had ever opened their mouths.

By the end of the evening, al-Haddad had made it absolutely clear that he supported the gradual implementation of sharia law in the West – starting with relatively innocuous-seeming stuff like divorce tribunals and Islamic finance, then moving bit by bit into ever more serious territory.

One particularly depressing development was that after an hour or so of listening to al-Haddad, Dibi admitted that he had caught himself feeling that al-Haddad, being a scholar, must be right about Islam after all.

I’ve often felt that a major reason why less observant, essentially secularized Muslims like Dibi are so hesitant to speak out against the likes of al-Haddad (aside from sheer terror) is that some small voice deep inside whispers to them that he’s the real thing – the good Muslim, a man whose pious certitude, and unwavering devotion to the Prophet shame their own co-optation by infidel decadence.

It was at around this point that Geert Wilders and the Freedom Party entered the discussion – indirectly, to be sure.

“Some people in Parliament,” said Dibi, “I don’t want to name the party again, think that men like yourself are slowly colonizing the West – they’re pretending to be nice, pretending to be intellectuals, but secretly they are trying to take over.”

Al-Haddad asked Dibi if he had allowed himself to be brainwashed by such silliness.

“No,” Dibi was quick to insist, “I don’t believe that” – even though he had just spent over an hour listening to al-Haddad confirm these very warnings.
Dibi’s next question suggested that he was, indeed, after the evening’s workout, a torn, confused, and, yes, cowed young man: “Are you slowly, step by step, trying to implement sharia as a scholar?”

“Yes,” the scholar replied, “if the people request it.”

Certainly the audience at De Balie that evening was packed with sharia fans. They cheered al-Haddad’s attacks on the West; they applauded his praise of Islamic law. Every outburst of boisterous support for the imam’s ugly sentiments only reaffirmed things that Geert Wilders has been saying for years.

But nobody at De Balie that evening – including Bessons, who from beginning to end made clear his utter hostility to al-Haddad’s views – even wanted to mention Wilders’s name.

        The Newshour piece on the sexual assault in Tahrir Square is at:

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/p00trrzm

        At 26.30 to 37.15 mins

        Lyce Doucet begins with one enormous whopper – when western women are assaulted in Egypt ‘the issue makes headlines.’ Not on the BBC it doesn’t. Apart from an ‘elsewhere on the web’ link, when you actively seek the story on their website, this is as far as I am aware, the first broadcast mention of the incident by the BBC- on the World Service – on Saturday 30th when it was carried by he HuffPo on Tue 26th. The British hoi polloi would presumably be uninterested in such an even – or, more likely, their latent xenophobic urges might be inflamed
        Natasha Smith herself is almost apologetic about reporting the incident: she doesn’t want to give those wonderful Egyptian people a bad name just because of the actions of a tiny minority. .

        For the Egyptian writer Mona Eltahawym, Mubarak’s equivalent events are just as likely to happen in the US. Besides that, the former regime was so evil she seems to think these sexual assaults were begun by the security services and the habit been picked up by ordinary Egyptian men by a kind of contagion. (although, admittedly they already had some bad habits). Not to worry – she is on the case and is going to start a campaign group. Meanwhile she seems reasonably content with a sharia-enthusiastic Muslim Brotherhood administration, hoping president Morsi will back her campaign, and obviouslystill loathes the military. She criticises people who say publicising such events is an expression of, or could give rise to, racism and Islamophobia.
        I won’t rehearse the arguments, once again, on how Islamic doctrine, social philosophy and law come very close to giving legitimacy-and indeed enccouragement – to such behaviour – perhaps she would do well to listen to those other shariads, the Taliban: “Women’s rights = Christianity”.

      ‘itching for lively debating on the issues….’
      While I’d agree on the theory, have to disagree on the actuality.
      Like with Newsnight, who closed their blog and moved to ‘broadcast only’, RT-only what they like and block what they don’t on twitter, and FaceBook, the calibre of debate has mostly descended into farce,
      Just as they had hoped. They simply write a contentious headline and stick a question mark at the end, and are secure that the trolls and nutters will render any possible sensible discourse pointless. Leaving them free to appear ‘reasonable’ churning out their usual broadcast fare with carefully selected guest opinion, with any interactive feedback to show how they are listening run through the BBC narrative filter.
      It’s about as rigged as it can get already and getting worse.

  6. Harold says:

    I don’t need any more foul evidence to convince me of Islam and the sneering Left-wing’s plans for western democracy; hardline Muslims do not wish to integrate with western values and cultural traditions – indeed, they hold us in utter contempt viewing the West as hedonistic, self-indulgent and morally redundant. Specifically, Islamic religion forbids multiculturalism, it really is that simple but the metro-trendy London elite live in denial, especially when drinking bubbly in a West End bar after attending a contemporary Ballet.
    The BBC and the craven bedwetting Liberal establishment are petrified of zealous Muslim aggression and so placate, censor and tamper with all associated news stories in an attempt to forever portray the extremist segments of Islam in a positive light; they call it ‘value judgements’ but where I’m from we call it downright upper-class cowardice and ingratiation.

    I simply refuse to listen to or watch the BBC/Sky or have anything to do with any papers associated with that anti-quated rust-bucket of a discreditied delusional philospohy, Marxism, purely because of the hypocrisy in their ‘sensitive’ dealings with Muslim fundamentalists – it’s OK for hardline Muslims to refuse acceptance of gay rights, to denounce multi-faith schools, or to reject cultural integration; indeed, they can burn our poppies and walk away scot-free, as it were! And with regards the Arab uprisings we have a wide range of conflicting reports concerning the nature of what’s happening in the countries; but the BBC, Sky and William Hague et al have already planted their flags firmly on the rebel side of the fence without any attempt at listen to both sides. I am no fan of Assad as he is a dictator guilty of war crimes against innocent people but must the British media be so quick to allign itself with Muslim fundamentalists who will deny democracy to Christians and those who don’t share Sharia? For me, perhaps the most offensive and shameful episode in the ever growing list of BBC grovelling has, indeed, been their whole sycophantic pro-al-Qaeda BBC/Sky coverage of the Arab (Muslim fundamentalist) Spring – which has, quite frankly, been pure and blatant propaganda consisting of daily one-sided interviews and and coverage alongside obseqious and fawning analysis drivel. A close second has to be the Left’s attempts to hide the undeniable links between certain followers of a certain religion and the revolting and loathsome grooming gangs; this disgusting epidemic has shown us all we need to know about the cowardly Left, the same strata of society who sent young 16 year olds over the trench tops in the First World War. NOTHING, I say NOTHING, shocks me when it comes to BBC political correctness. If, or perhaps when, there is civil strife on Britain’s streets as a result of the Left’s tyrannical social engineering (multiculturalism) then the Liberals will be the first to run, leaving patriots facing the enemy; it’s always been that way. The uniforms have maybe changed but the social games and dynamics remain the same.

    If a story fits with the narrative the BBC will report it, if not then it will censor. Therefore, it is, by its very nature, a communist propaganda operation.

    Of course the mentally deranged extremist left have supported islamofascism before and paid the price. The islamofascist revolution in Iran was supported by the Persian left and they did much of the street protesting at the start, they were rewarded for their support in due course by being slowly strangled to death en masse by cranes.

    Why is the mentally deranged extremist left so attracted to a death cult that hates them and would certainly murder them if they could? It seems the extremist left has a desire to place themselves before those who would destroy them, some kind of warped death wish or an instinctive attraction to a primal evil?

      I know Cassandra, it seems totally crazy doesn’t it? But the truth is the Left can’t do anything remotely critical of any non-white, non-Christian ethnic minority because to do so would make their very existence, their very political philosophy an atrocious walking contradiction. Their fundamental tenet orbits around the championing of rights for minorities; it’s the lowest common denominator of socialism – you know, the weak must be supported against the oppressor etc. But what happens when a certain minority becomes evidently unruly and fascist? It’s actually quite hilarious because the Left-wing have gagged themselves by their very own game rules. It’s infantile playground stuff, no rationalism or logic and it will end in disaster with us, the patriots having to pick up the pieces. Right I’m off for that bottle of wine before it vanishes!

    Obituary: former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir

    Yitzhak Shamir, who has died aged 96, was the Zionist militant of the 1940s who became a hard-line prime minister of Israel in the 1980s.

    He was born Yitzhak Jazernicki in Poland but changed his name to Shamir. He studied law at Warsaw University.

    But in 1935, when he was 20, he came under the influence of a militant Zionist, gave up his studies and emigrated to Palestine, then under the British mandate.

    His father, mother and sisters were killed during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

    In Palestine, he joined an underground organisation, Irgun Zvai Leumi, led by another future Israeli prime minister, Menachem Begin, and dedicated to fighting for an independent Jewish state.

    But Irgun was not militant enough for Shamir, who believed that violence was the way to get results, and in 1940 he joined – and later led – the more extreme Stern Gang.

    The British Foreign Office in the 1940s described him as “among the most fanatical terrorist leaders”.

    It was they who in 1946 blew up the King David Hotel, the British headquarters in Jerusalem, with the loss of 88 lives (15 of them Jewish), and killed the United Nations mediator, Count Bernadotte

    [...]

    Obituary: Yasser Arafat

    For decades Yasser Arafat was the embodiment of the Palestinian cause.

    To his supporters he was the only man capable of keeping Palestinian hopes alive and at the forefront of global consciousness.

    To critics he was an inveterate terrorist who failed his people.

    He was in equal measures national treasure and national liability for many Palestinians. While raising their hopes of independence he was also seen by some as one of the impediments to Palestinian democracy and civil society.

Why didn’t anyone in the Muslim community explain to her that this idea represented a drastic Misunderstanding of Islam? Why does no one ask these questions, despite the fact that these Misunderstanders of Islam keep proliferating? Why does no non-Muslim authority ever call Muslim communities to account for doing nothing about this “radicalization”? Why does no non-Muslim authority ever determine that non-Muslims are going to have to fight this ‘radicalization’ themselves and enforce their own laws before it’s too late?”

    Amsterdam Gets a Harsh Lesson in Islam 101

    http://frontpagemag.com/2012/06/29/amsterdam-gets-a-harsh-lesson-in-islam-101/

    In June 2011, Geert Wlders was prosecuted for simply making a film “Fitrna”, and Islam’s totalitarian ideology. And yet when an imam publicy tells the sam,e thin quoting chaoter and verse from the koran, the Dutch authorities excused it on the basis of freedom of expression.

    These are the kind of double standards practised by the fascist left both in Britain and Holland: Ignore the evils preached by Islamists but prosecute the non Muslims who reveal them. The totalitarian Left unites with Islam in their objective to destroy the culture and traditions of Britain and Europe. Their first objective is Christianity, on whose pillars much of Western civilisation rests

      They will never destroy Christianity, Christianity will destroy them when God gets involved.

        I think so too.

        It took men of immense courage, fortified with faith, trust and hope, that turned hundreds of years of Jihad against the West.

        God helps those who help themselves.

    Its a frightening thing the so called Arab spring especially for poor Israel. The sixth form type support for it from the BBC is truly awful and misguided. The Muslim brotherhood are dangerous , how long before they are hanging people from cranes and stoning women to death, where will the BBC be then?

  23. The Marxist Defence of Murder says:

    The BBC is quick to label people or organizations that offer any sort of criticism of political Islam as being “far right”. Yet, when it comes to Islamic parties for whom “fascist” in every sense of the word would be an appropriate description, such as the Muslim Brotherhood (who even share some historical DNA with the Nazi Party), we are instead assured that they maybe Islamist but they “moderate” or evenly “conservative”. Well, that’s okay then. Except they’re not moderate. You can’t be both moderate and Islamist; anyone with a modicum of wit can see that basing one’s world outlook uniquely on the Koran cannot lead to any form of moderation. The Koran and the whole horrible list of accompanying manuals that come with it (i.e. the ahadith) can only lead to one thing for those who takes them seriously: extremism; bloody, intolerant extremism.

    Morsi’s top leaders have also stated that they want to kill all the Jews and have Jerusalem as Egypt’s new capital:

    Ceremony leader : Mursi will liberate Gaza tomorrow.

    Crowds : Mursi will liberate Gaza tomorrow.

    Ceremony leader : Say: “Allah Akbar.”

    Crowds : Allah Akbar.

    Ceremony leader : Say: “Allah Akbar.”

    Crowds : Allah Akbar.

    Ceremony leader : Say: “Allah Akbar.”
    Allah Akbar.

    Safwat Higazi : Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca, or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing. Our cry shall be: “Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.” Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Crowds : Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Crowds : Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Safwat Higazi : Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Crowds : Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Ceremony leader : Banish the sleep from the eyes of all Jews.
    Come on, you lovers of martyrdom, you are all Hamas.
    From the eyes of all Jews…
    Come on, you lovers of martyrdom, you are all Hamas.
    Banish the sleep from the eyes of all Jews.
    Come on, you lovers of martyrdom, you are all Hamas.
    Forget about the whole world, forget about all the conferences.
    Brandish your weapons… Say your prayers…
    Brandish your weapons… Say your prayers…
    And pray to the Lord.
    From the eyes of all Jews…
    Come on, you lovers of martyrdom…
    Banish the sleep from the eyes of all Jews.
    Come on, you lovers of martyrdom, you are all Hamas.

    Safwat Higazi : Indeed, all the lovers of martyrdom are Hamas. I say from this podium, from Al-Mahalla, from the heart of the Delta, the heart of Egypt, so that the whole world may hear.
    We say it loud and clear: Yes, Jerusalem is our goal. We shall pray in Jerusalem, or else we shall die as martyrs on its threshold.
    Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.

    Crowds : Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem.
