“Correct Teachings Needed”

Indonesia Using Armed Forces to Convert Ahmadis to ‘Mainstream Islam’

‘Tiny minority of excremists’ spreading moderate Islam around the world

AnotherWrong Kind of Muslim’ attack against the Ahmadiyya sect – this time in in Moderate, Progressiveâ„¢ Indonesia:

The military denied on Tuesday that it had ordered the Siliwangi command in West Java to encourage mainstream Muslims to occupy Ahmadiyah mosques and preach “the true path” of Islam. The Ahmadiyya in Indonesia are brutally repressed and abused from the government down – as evidenced here (source)

He was “not devout”,  sez wifey:

Indonesia: Wife of jihad/martydom bomber says he was not a “devout Muslim”

“Moderate Muslim Females” Promoting ‘Moderation’

But this is the same guy whose father said had called him an “infidel.” So take this with a grain of salt or two. “Suspected Bomber ‘Not a Devout Muslim,’ Wife Says,” by Farouk Arnaz for the Jakarta Globe, April 18

“Infidel Advice”

Indonesia: Suicide bomber’s father says “when I gave him advice he called me infidel”

“O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong. Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight, are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause, then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious.” — Qur’an 9:23-24

The mainstream Qur’an commentator Ibn Kathir explains: “Allah commands shunning the disbelievers, even if they are one’s parents or children, and prohibits taking them as supporters if they choose disbelief instead of faith.” Another renowned Islamic authority, Ibn Juzayy, notes that Qur’an 9:24, with its warning that one should value nothing in this life higher than Allah, is “a threat to anyone who prefers his family, property or home to emigration and jihad.” “Emigration” to infidel lands in order to spread Islam, that is.

‘Individual Jihad”

Indonesia jihad/martyrdom suicide attack shows trend toward “individual jihad”

As we have seen in the case of Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar and many others, any Muslim believer can read the Qur’an and decide that he has a responsibility to wage jihad warfare against unbelievers. There is simply no way to make sure that that will not happen, even if it only happens once in a great while, because of the Qur’an’s many plain exhortations to do just that.

  1. Indonesia: Jihadists plant 330-pound bomb under gas pipeline near church that holds 3,000 people

    Because infidel holidays offend Moslems. Gotta show the kafirs who’s boss:

    But don’t be concerned: most Indonesians “practice a moderate form of the faith.” “Big bomb found near Indonesia church; 19 arrested,” by Ali Kotarumalos for the Associated Press, April 21 (thanks to JW):

    JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Terror suspects arrested Thursday led police to a 150-kilogram (330-pound) bomb buried beneath a gas pipeline near a church just outside Indonesia’s capital, officials said.
    Senior security minister Djoko Suyanto said he believed Islamic militants had been plotting an attack ahead of Easter celebrations, and the U.S. embassy urged Americans to be vigilant.

    “The army and police are under high alert,” he told reporters, adding that troops would be deployed at churches and other strategic locations. “We want to guarantee safety.”…

    In recent months, small bands of militants hoping to turn the secular nation of 237 million into an Islamic state have shifted their focus to local “enemies.”

    They’ve gone after police, members of a minority Islamic sect deemed “deviant,” Christians and moderate Muslim leaders.

    National Police Chief Gen. Timur Pradopo said the 19 suspects were arrested Thursday, including six accused in a series of mail bombs sent last month to liberal Muslim activists and a former anti-terror chief.

    Four people were wounded in the parcel bombings, none seriously.

    The arrested men eventually led police to the gas pipeline 100 meters (yards) from a Catholic church large enough to hold 3,000 people in Serpong, where they found the massive, high explosive bomb.

    Suyanto said he believed the militants had been planning to disrupt Good Friday celebrations….

    Ninety percent of Indonesians are Muslim, though most practice a moderate form of the faith and abhor violence. A small, extremist fringe has become more vocal, and violent, in recent years.

    It would be refreshing if AP, or anyone, would explain how this “moderate form of the faith” deals with the Qur’an’s many exhortations to violence. That no one ever does so is telling.
