After dear leader said ‘let me be clear’ theÂ 1967 Border are only a ‘Starting Point’ Israel goes on the chopping block:
“The Jihad against Israel is a religious duty”
Nothing to do with Islam, of course, because Islam is a …………
His prediction also matches that ofÂ another “Islamist” politician in Egypt, just reported yesterday. Did these guys call each other?
No, what we have is another case of striking uniformity in alleged “misunderstanders” of Islam that are geographically well removed from one another. Funny how that keeps happening. “Muslim Brotherhood leader of Tunisia calls for an end to Israel,” fromSpero News, May 21 (thanks toÂ Weasel Zippers):
Kamal Al-Hilbawi: the Camp David Accord is not sacred. This is not part of the Koran, the Sunna, the New Testament, or the Torah. This is unjust agreement that must be reexamined and amended. We are not opposed to agreement or to world peace. We are the people who are most interested in world peace. However, if there is an unjust agreement, it must be reexamined.
The Obama administration says there is nothing to fear about the Muslim Brotherhood entering politics, so let’s give the new EgyptÂ a few billion.
Too bad neither Hitler nor Osama bin Laden lived to hear Barack Hussein’s speech yesterdayÂ handing over Israel to its enemies. (Moonbattery)
Note how he quotes the Qur’an to explain events of the day, and says that the jihad against Israel is a religious duty. No two-state solution or any kind of negotiated settlement will pacify those who think this way. “Islamist Candidate for Egyptian Presidency: Israel’s End Is Near,” fromÂ MEMRI, May 20:
What’s ironic about this is that the U.S. officials responsible for this designation are certain that the group has nothing to do with authentic Islam, and that it holds to the twisted theology of the violent fringe. They would assert this as confidently and complacently as Abu Al-Abbas asserts that to label his group a terror group is an attempt to harm Islam. Yet no actual evidence demonstrating that groups like this really do twist the true, peaceful teachings of Islam has ever actually been produced. “Gaza group rejects U.S. terror classification decision,” fromÂ Xinhua, May 20 Â (On the other hand one wonders why they object, because Muhammad clearly said ‘strike terror in the hearts of the infidels’ – and ‘I was made victorious with terror’, so its fundamental to the Islamic doctrine. Honest Muslims Â don’t beat around the bush.)
Absent from this story is any analysis of why bin Laden would lend his support to these uprisings, something a government official earlierÂ found “puzzling.” It is perplexing if one follows the more or less conventional expectation that the “Arab Spring” will lead forthwith to tolerant democracies and open societies that respect human rights according to Western expectations.
This expectation is rooted in the assumption — indeed, the politically correct article of faith — that there is nothing inherently intolerant or problematic in Islamic law that is not the disposable baggage of tribalism, local “culture,” or even the prior regime.
In reality, Islamic regimes openly enforcing Sharia would be more likely to be friendly to al-Qaeda’s message and agenda, and more openly hostile to the United States and Israel. Whatever rivalries may exist between al-Qaeda and movements like the Muslim Brotherhood, the fact remains that they have a common cause in the desire to impose Islamic law, which is the fundamental aim of jihad in all its forms. “Bin Laden Praises Middle East Uprisings in Posthumous Message,” fromÂ VOAÂ News, May 19:
