But don’t tell that to Catholic priestÂ Fr Dwight Longenecker, who keeps Robert Spencer busy these days:
Â Fr. Longenecker reduces truth tellers like Spencer to having a “taste for denunciations and imprecations against Islam” â€” a peculiar and unfortunate echo of the Leftist/Islamic supremacist smear that opposition to Islamic jihad violence and supremacism is just “hatred” and “bigotry.” Unfortunately, this idea is all too current in today’s Roman Catholic Church (and the Catholic Church in general) â€” that it is wrong and uncharitable to call attention to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism. As even as violent jihadist persecution of Christians escalates worldwide, the enforced silence on this is the real lack of charity.
Lets cut to the chase and hear it from one who knows his Islam and acts on it:
Radical Imam Anjem Choudary: Terrorizing the Enemy is Part of Islam
Anjem Choudary has been having a media moment. In just over a week he has appeared onÂ Hannity, on CNN’sÂ Reliable SourcesÂ and now on RT’s Worlds Apart. In the RT interview Choudary went beyond what he had said on the other networks offering a broad defense of the beheading of foreign journalists, even citing a verse from the Koran which he says makes clear terrorism is “part of Islam.”
Choudary: Well, you know, as a lecturer in Sharia law I would say to the people in Russia, the Muslims and the non-Muslims, that every action for a Muslim must be based upon the Koran, the word of Allah, and the teachings of the messenger Mohammed…who is the final messenger for mankind. I mean I would first invite the people to think about and embrace Islam but those who are already Muslim must know that Allah mentions in the Koran, in fact if you look inÂ chapter 8 verse 60Â he said prepare as much as you can “steeds of war” to terrorize the enemy.Â So terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam. I mean this is something that we must embrace and understand as far as the jurisprudence of Islam is concerned.
Choudary went on to say that Muslims make no distinction between civilians and armed forces since civilians elect the leaders who direct the armed forces. The fullRT interviewÂ with Choudary can be viewed here.
