The Caliphate News Network supports the global jihad:
Not content with marketing terrorism by airing insurgent sniper videos, the fading network just hit a new low. Gates of Vienna reports that CNN, always aware of the need for extremists to be able to locate artists and writers who “defame Islam,” has revealed the safe house of artist Lars Vilks. Shockingly, our reporters have discovered an even more serious breach of protocol by CNN’s Blanderson Pooper.
CNN, ever mindful of the need for jihadis to be able to locate the artists and writers who “defame Islam,” has revealed the “safe house” of Swedish artist Lars Vilks.
However, as Allahpundit notes, CNN isn’t entirely to blameâ€”since they filmed with the permission of Vilks himself. AP also has screenshots of CNN’s ridiculous, cowardly blurring of Vilks’ dreaded roundabout dog of blasphemy drawing.
What’s going on here? After the disgraceful western media blackout of the Danish cartoons, CNN obviously felt it had to make some gesture towards showing the viewers the offending work. But not only did they NOT have the balls to show the offending part, they were sufficiently worried about being accused of, ahem, “Islamophobia” for the part that they did show that they went ahead and put up the drawing of Christ â€” which has nothing to do with the threat to Vilks â€” just to prove that they’re equal opportunity offenders. Fantastically lame.
Q: I wish to inquire as to what the arabic term for holy war is. In the media that I came across lately, Jihad was used as term of reference which I understand is incorrect.
A: The Arabic equivalent for holy war is Jihaad.and Allah Ta’ala Knows BestMufti Ebrahim Desai
JIHAD IS A CENTRAL DUTY of every Muslim. Modern Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But in Islamic history and doctrine violent jihad is founded on numerous verses of the Qur’an â€” most notably, one known in Islamic theology as the “Verse of the Sword”: “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful” (Sura 9:5). Establishing “regular worship” and paying the “poor-due” (zakat) means essentially that they will become Muslim, as these are two of the central responsibilities of every Muslim.
Sahih Bukhari, which Muslims regard as the most trustworthy of all the many collections of traditions of Muhammad, records this statement of the Prophet: “Allah assigns for a person who participates in (holy battles) in Allah’s Cause and nothing causes him to do so except belief in Allah and in His Messengers, that he will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr).”
Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), a pioneering historian and philosopher, was also a legal theorist. In his renowned Muqaddimah, the first work of historical theory, he notes that “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.” In Islam, the person in charge of religious affairs is concerned with “power politics,” because Islam is “under obligation to gain power over other nations.”
Violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. The passages quoted above and many others like them form a major element of the motivation of jihad warriors worldwide today. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, with all its assumptions about unbelieversâ€š lack of human rights and dignity, is available today as a justification for anyone with the will and the means to bring it to life.
Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology play in the modern world and to correcting popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. By shedding as much light as possible on these matters, we hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict.
Good luck, all you ‘inner strugglers!’
Fisk: The CIA Bombed Flight 103
and Pearl Harbour was an inside job!
Robert Fisk, last seen at LGF when he joined the Troofers, descends further into outright lunacy, with an embarrassing article arguing that the CIA was responsible for the Lockerbie bombing: Do you know the truth about Lockerbie?
