Sheikh 'Adel Shehato of Egyptian Islamic Jihad: Once we gain power in Egypt, "we will launch a campaign of Islamic conquest, throughout the world"

He must be a misunderstander of Islam. I’m sure he missed that  day in the madrassa when they taught the ‘inner struggle part’.

“If We Come To Power We Will Launch Islamic Conquest To Instate Sharia Worldwide And “Exterminate” Christians If They Cause Problems…”

The Term “Democracy” is Not in the Arab or Islamic Lexicon; Once Allah’s Law Reigns Supreme, the People’s Role will End

He also says that Christians in Egypt will have to submit and pay the jizya in a state of humiliation. And that there will be no art or tourism in the Egyptian Sharia State. Sheikh ‘Adel Shehato is a severe Misunderstander of Islam. He says things that gets us branded as greasy “Islamophobiacs” for saying it in  the west. If only the Center for American Progress or the SPLC or Hamas-linked CAIR would explain how it is that so many imams and Islamic leaders like Sheikh ‘Adel Shehato keep misunderstanding Islam in the exact same way that greasy Islamophobes do.

“Senior Official in Egyptian Islamic Jihad: If We Come to Power, We will Launch a Campaign of Islamic Conquests to Instate Shari’a Worldwide: The Christian is Free to Worship His God in His Church, but if the Christians Make Problems for the Muslims, I Will Exterminate Them,'” from MEMRI, August 29 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

On August 13, 2011, the Egyptian daily Roz Al-Yousef published an interview[1] with Sheikh ‘Adel Shehato, a senior official in Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), who, on March 23, 2011, was freed from prison in the wake of the Egyptian revolution. He was imprisoned in 1991 upon returning from a three-year sojourn in Afghanistan. […]Following are excerpts of the interview:

Sheikh ‘Adel Shehato

The Term “Democracy” is Not in the Arab or Islamic Lexicon; Once Allah’s Law Reigns Supreme, the People’s Role will End

Q: “Do you support the uprising?”

Shehato: “…The [Egyptian] youth rose up for a certain ideal… They did not rise up in order to put the shari’a into practice, nor did they [complain] that Mubarak’s regime did not rule in accordance with the shari’a… As Muslims, we must believe that the Koran is our constitution, and that it is [therefore] impossible for us to institute a Western democratic regime. I oppose democracy because it is not the faith of the Muslims, but the faith of the Jews and Christians. Simply put, democracy means the rule of the people itself over itself…According to Islam, it is forbidden for people to rule and to legislate laws, as Allah alone is ruler. Allah did not hand down the term [democracy] as a form of rule, and it is completely absent from the Arab and Islamic lexicon…”

Q: “If you do not believe in the rule of the people, why did you go out to Al-Tahrir Square with the slogan ‘he People Wants to Implement the Shari’a?’ Are you exploiting democracy in order to achieve what you want [only] to then abolish [democracy]?”

Shehato: “I am not exploiting democracy, since I have never joined and will never join politics or party activity… We believe that implementation of the shari’a [must be accomplished] far from the political game, though some [other] Islamic streams are willing to participate [in this game] in order to achieve the same goal [i.e., implementation of the shari’a]. We said that ‘the people wants to implement the shari’a’ because most of the people are Muslims, and also based on [our] reading of the situation on the ground. [At the same time,] we did not make demands for the people’s sake in the people’s name, but demanded the rule of Allah. And once Allah’s law is instated, the role of the people will end and Allah will reign supreme.” […]

Q: “Are you against blowing up churches?”

Shehato: “Yes and no. The Christian is free to worship his god in his church, but if the Christians make problems for the Muslims, I will exterminate them. I am guided by the shari’a, and it stipulates that they must pay the jizya tax while in a state of humiliation…”

Q: “These positions of yours frighten us, as Egyptians.”

Shehato: “I will not act [in ways] that contradict my faith just in order to please the people… We say to the Christians, convert to Islam or pay the jizya, otherwise we will fight you. The shari’a is not based on [human] logic but on divine law. That is why we oppose universal, manmade constitutions.”

If the Muslims Rise to Power in Egypt, They Will Form Muslim Battalions to Enforce the Shari’a Worldwide

Q: “If you rise to power in Egypt, will you launch a campaign of Islamic conquest?”

Shehato: “Of course we will launch a campaign of Islamic conquest, throughout the world. As soon as the Muslims and Islam control Egypt and implement the shari’a [there], we will turn to the neighboring regions, [such as] Libya [to the west] and Sudan to the south. All the Muslims in the world who wish to see the shari’a implemented worldwide will join the Egyptian army in order to form Islamic battalions, whose task will be to bring about the victory of [our] faith. We hope that, with Allah’s help, Egypt will be the spark [that sets off this process]…”

Q: “You said that you endorse the ideology of Osama bin Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Does this mean that your way of implementing shari’a in Egypt will be through violence and war, like their [way]?”

Shehato: “No, we will implement the shari’a through da’wa [preaching], while violence will be directed only at the infidel Arab rulers. In their case, there is no choice but to use force, though the shari’a does not call it ‘violence’ but ‘jihad for the sake of Allah.’ There is no other way… because they have power and weapons…”

Q: “How will the foreign ministry [operate] in an Islamic state?”

Shehato: “There are Muslims and there are infidels. We will have ambassadors in every country. We want to call all other countries to join Islam, and that will be the task of the ambassadors. If [the countries] refuse, there will be war. We will not tolerate mutual trade and cultural ties with non-Muslims.”

“In the [Islamic] State, There will Be Only Islamic Culture”

Q: “If you rise to power, what will be your approach to tourism?”

Shehato: “There will be tourism for purposes of [medical] treatment, but the tourism sites of the pyramids, the Sphinx, and Sharm Al-Sheikh will be shut down, because my task [as a ruler] is to get people to serve Allah rather than [other] people [i.e., tourists]. No proud Muslim will ever be willing to live off tourism profits, because the tourists come [to Egypt] to drink alcohol and fornicate.


Sheesh, Shehato, you don’t have to travel all the way to Egypt to drink alcohol and fornicate.

[If they] want to come, they must comply with the conditions and laws of Islam. We will explain to them that, according to the shari’a, the pyramids are [the remains of] a pagan and polytheistic age.”Q: “What will be the state of art and literature in such a state?”
Shehato: “In Islam, there is no such thing as art. Painting, singing, and dancing are forbidden. Therefore, in the [Islamic] state there will be nothing but Islamic culture, for I cannot teach [people] the infidel culture. As for literature, such as [the works] of Naguib Mahfouz, it is forbidden. Naguib Mahfouz was a criminal who stimulated [people’s] desires and struck a severe blow to modesty. We will return to the decent culture of the Muslims and the Muslim forefathers, and to Islamic history.”

  1. This man, through his words, invites the destruction of his religion and people through extremely violent means..

    In other words, he’s asking for it..

  2. … and he will get it:

    The burden of Egypt: “Behold, Yahweh rides on a swift cloud, and comes to Egypt. The idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence; and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst. (Isaiah 19:1)

  3. These mohammedans have never had a proper beatdown; they have no idea what west is capable of.
    I reckon they will soon find out.
    Inbred feckin’ idiots, following the teachings of a serial rapist, murderer, pedophile, liar and bandit.
    Complete and utter vile, freakin’ idiots – all muslims.
    There, I said it – ALL MUSLIMS!
    Anyone that follows the teachings of the filthy mohammed-the-kiddy-fiddler is a feckin’ evil moron.

  4. Inbred retard-all he can think about is killing Jews,Meanwhile Egypt is facing real problems with food supply

  5. You people are really Sick, sick sick,
    Allah is the Devil – and Islam is the Devil’s Religion,
    Jesus Christ is the true Messaiah and He is going to conquer not the Devil. Sorry boys, you are coughing up the wrong tree! When you die – if you do not repent and find Christ you will find out that there is a hell and there is also a heaven and it will not be the way you had imagined it to be, nor will it be the way your Koran lies about it.
    The fear of the Lord God is to hate evil and to love Righteousness. Without Jesus Christ there is no Salvation – eternal life only comes through Jesus Chrsit, God’s Son. May God have mercy on your wicked and evil souls. Allah is the moon god of Arabia —
    Not the Creator of Heaven and earth. It is time to WAKE UP!

  6. asaljamu Alejkum, I am sorry to disturb you; I just write you a very
    important matter.
    I think that now in our time many people began to insult Islam with
    impunity. And our Muslim leaders do nothing, what do verbiage. I want
    to do everything to protect the Great Islam. I want to fight with
    these reptiles, which insulted Islam. For example, here in my country,
    I do not live in Russia, Jehovah’s Witnesses went so far as what is
    called our Prophet Muhammad (may Allah blss him and welcomed),
    epileptic and insane, and that we Muslims are backward people. Those
    damned bastards called great religion of Islam, the teachings of
    fools. I appealed to the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of my
    country, so that they take any action, but our Islamic leaders rather
    than to call them to account, I complained to the police that I am
    supposed to do incitement to religious hatred. Although I just wanted
    to Jehovah’s Witnesses and other rag-tag name is no longer offend our
    Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) now, many Islamic leaders are
    cowardly and indecisive. And in order to defend Islam, we need a
    strong and brave man, like me, who will be tough to defend the
    interests of Islam.
    I’m ready to go to drastic measures, by nature, I am very determined
    person, I prefer to act rather than talk. But I need your help;
    without it, I can not implement the plan. I believe that time has
    passed just chatter.It is time to act. Help me and you’ll see what I
    can do. I’ll be the most faithful and resolute defender of Islam. And
    I personally believe that not for nothing on earth there are various
    natural disasters such as volcanic eruption in Iceland, or flooding in
    I am sure that Allah is Great, the Almighty and Merciful shows us that
    people are beginning to depart from the true faith. I look forward to
    working with you. And if you help me, then I can do to prove honesty
    of my words. Since, I am ready to account for every penny. Simply, I
    am writing to you because without your financial assistance, I can not
    call these insolent to the answer. Since, for them there is a
    substantial financial strength.
    And to crush this financial strength, I also need cash, and a sign of
    my honesty, I can send you documentation of all my actions. I’ll send
    you a report on their actions, which will be filmed on video. So, you
    make sure in fact that I say very seriously. I have never with these
    things is not kidding. If you decide to assist me, then you will never
    regret. I never let you. I’m not afraid of anything and is willing to
    take any risk, even death. But I need your help. Without it, I could
    crush nest Aspen atheists ,
    I represent Islamic movement Al-Furkan. We need your help: finacial
    help. We are going to punish one sect who offence Islam and our
    Muhammad (SAS).We are glad to get any help; we are ready to prove our
    activity on video.
    Please help us for Great Allah! Frankly speaking, I do not believe
    that somebody from the Muslims help me. Most of our Muslims are lying
    hypocrites, they call themselves Muslims, but do not provide financial
    support to those people who are struggling to gain Islam. I fight for
    the strengthening of Islam and I need financial support. Allah in the
    Quran says: all real Muslims must help their brothers who are fighting
    for strengthening Islam. My skape: timur_0774
