Aussie Jihadists "supremely confident, well-dressed and well-resourced…"

True story!

.
Convicted Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf reportedly continued to receive a disability pension for months after he had joined the insurgency in Syria.

Bar-city jihadist (Andrew Bolt)

Musa Cerantonio, the radical Islamic hothead, demands Muslims not just stay at home when jihadists are fighting in Syria. Musa knows Islam. He is right. When the call for jihad comes, the whole Muslim ummah must participate:

bn Khaldun (1332 – 1406) was a renowned Maliki jurist, philosopher, historian, and sociologist.

In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the [Muslim] mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force. Therefore, caliphate and royal authority are united [in Islam], so that the person in charge can devote the available strength to both of them [i.e. religion and politics] at the same time. The other religious groups did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty for them, save only for purposes of defense. … Islam is under obligation to gain power over other nations. …Thereafter, there were dissensions among the Christians with regard to their religion and to Christology. … We do not think that we should blacken the pages of this book with discussion of their dogmas of unbelief. In general, they are well known. All of them are unbelief. This is clearly stated in the noble Qur’an. [To] discuss or argue those things with them is not up to us. It is [for them to choose between] conversion to Islam, payment of the poll tax, or death.

Cerantonio announces that he, for one, is going to Syria to fight for the new Caliphate, now declared by the ISIS terrorist group:

In fact, he’s been found in far safer and comfier surrounds:

RADICAL Australian hate preacher Musa Cerantonio has been arrested in the Philippines after his boasts on social media about travelling to join the Islamic “caliphate’’ in the Middle East were exposed as a lie.

Melbourne-born Cerantonio, who is regarded as one of the top propagandists for jihadists and the violent Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is now likely to be deported home to Australia where he remains the subject of an ongoing investigation by the AFP.

One of the very few tourism attractions in Lapu-Lapu city:

For those who are wondering about Mactan’s naughty nightlife scene, there are many girlie bars located on Quezon National Highway in Lapu Lapu City. Some of them have been there for ages.

UPDATE

But John Lyons says other Australians keep joining the terrorists:

THERE was something about the six Australians that made them stand out.

Thousands of foreigners have ventured into Syria and Iraq during the past year for their journey to jihad; but, for locals who live along the border between Turkey and Syria, this group was different.

As they sat drinking coffee before making their final walk into a foreign war, these Australians stood out: they were supremely confident, well-dressed and well-resourced.

Here is the religious ruling on the obligation to jihad:

Quran (4:95) - “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward,-“ This passage criticizes “peaceful” Muslims who do not join in the violence, letting them know that they are less worthy in Allah’s eyes.  It also demolishes the modern myth that “Jihad” doesn’t mean holy war in the Quran, but rather a spiritual struggle.  Not only is the Arabic word used in this passage, but it is clearly not referring to anything spiritual, since the physically disabled are given exemption.  (The Hadith reveals the context of the passage to be in response to a blind man’s protest that he is unable to engage in Jihad and this is reflected in other translations of the verse).

More from the Religion of Peace:

Quran (8:65) - “O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight…”

 

Quran (9:5) - “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”  According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam (prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religion’s Five Pillars).  This popular claim that the Quran only inspires violence within the context of self-defense is seriously challenged by this passage as well, since the Muslims to whom it was written were obviously not under attack.  Had they been, then there would have been no waiting period (earlier verses make it a duty for Muslims to fight in self-defense, even during the sacred months).  The historical context is Mecca after the idolaters were subjugated by Muhammad and posed no threat.  Once the Muslims had the power, they violently evicted those unbelievers who would not convert.

 

Quran (9:14) - “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace…”

 

Quran (9:20) - “Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight. These are they who are triumphant.”  The Arabic word interpreted as “striving” in this verse is the same root as “Jihad”.  The context is obviously holy war.

 

Quran (9:29) - “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.”  “People of the Book” refers to Christians and Jews.  According to this verse, they are to be violently subjugated, with the sole justification being their religious status.  This was one of the final “revelations” from Allah and it set in motion the tenacious military expansion, in which Muhammad’s companions managed to conquer two-thirds of the Christian world in the next 100 years.  Islam is intended to dominate all other people and faiths.

 

Quran (9:30) - “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

 

Quran (9:38-39) - “O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.”  This is a warning to those who refuse to fight, that they will be punished with Hell.
