'Letter to Tom'


Tom,

What "political" means is that the government must be perceived as legitimate by the people. Elections play a role, come after things such as basic security and basic government services; water, trash pickup, sewer, electricity.

What infidel government can ever be "perceived as legitimate" by those whose hearts and minds belong to this:

"the Messenger of Allah . . . would say: 'Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war. . . . When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. . . . Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. . . . If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them . . .'" (Muslim Book 19, Number 4294).

"fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war) . . . " (Qur’an 9:5).

"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" (Qur'an 9:29).

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter . . . " (Qur'an 5:33). [Ibn Kathir says of this verse: "'Wage war' mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. Mischief in the land refers to various types of evil." So, Muhammad requires execution, crucifixion, or cutting off hands and feet from opposite sides for "disbelief."]

"Allah's Apostle said: 'I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle . . . '" (Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24).

"It is not for any prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise" (Qur'an 8:67).

"Allah’s Apostle said, 'I have been made victorious with terror'" (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220).

"Allah's Apostle was asked, 'What is the best deed?' He replied, 'To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad).' The questioner then asked, 'What is the next (in goodness)?' He replied, 'To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah's Cause.' The questioner again asked, 'What is the next (in goodness)?' He replied, 'To perform Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). . .'" (Bukhari Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25).

"Say to the Unbelievers, if (now) they desist (from Unbelief), their past would be forgiven them; but if they persist, the punishment of those before them is already (a matter of warning for them). And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone (in the whole of the world). But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do" (Qur'an 8:38; ayah 39 from Noble Qur'an).

Regards,

Amillennialist

Editor's Note:

On October 1st, this S/H weblog published a fine article by Parvin Darabi on the brute teachings of Iran's Great 20th Century Spiritual Leader and 'Shockingly Outrageous Family Values Council' with "Ayatollah Exposed"!

On October 15th we re-published "A Common Word" by Mohamed Fadly, the author of 'Understanding Islam' Weblog.

This Post Discussed the potentials of a "Moderate World Islam" and featured the hopeful ideas of Egypt's Grand Mufti Dr. Ali Gomaa.

For November 1st, in the spirit of being both "Fair & Balanced" we are happy to provide still another contrasting viewpoint (from a recent eMail) from a wonderful Judeo/Christian scholar that we've had here before, debating Mohamed Fadly on 'Memorial Parade' Post.

Another Highly Recommended Reading!

SYMBOLS OF OPPRESSION

Battle over face veil brewing in Egypt

Rokaya Mohamed, an elementary school teacher, would rather die than take off her face veil, or niqab, thrusting her to the forefront of a battle by government-backed clerics to limit Islamism in Egypt.

Egypt's state-run religious establishment wants teachers like Mohamed to remove their veils in front of female students, sparking a backlash by Islamists who say women should be able to choose to cover their faces in line with their Islamic faith.

In addition to oppression, this represents backward, Stone Age thinking.

Winfred - There's a classic on-going struggle between the "free-thinkers" that are willing to risk all, and the Islamist Radicals that callously 'sacrifice their innocents' to retain a stranglehold on power.

Amillennialist catalogs these unholy verses, and exhibits them for all to see!

The hijab and full-body burkha (as you correctly identify) are merely the "symbols of oppression" that the world has been dealing with for 1400 years.

Knowing the enemy, Who they are & What they teach...is essential to the survival and progress of civilization in the 21st century.

Public Apathy Is A Curse.

Our politically-driven citizens, overloaded with emotional trivia and media bias...seem to have a great deal of trouble understanding it.

If Joe-citizen ever tires of this terribly flawed system, restricts celebrity worship to hollywood, and demands 'Term Limits' for our legislators, that could be a step in the right direction.

More proof you can’t trust Muslims

A Muslim, Major Malik Nidal Hasan, killed 12 people and wounded 31 at Fort Hood, today.

Winfred - I'll Agree With That!

Our Military Families Know We Are At War, And They Know The Enemy.

One-half of our U.S. civilian population is blindly apathetic, mired down in self-indulgence, pro-sports & entertainment, ignorant of our history and 1st Amendment fundamentals, and with no real awareness of our mission to protect and defend this nation.

If a person has a foreign-born name
that's fine; our parents or grand-parents all came from another place or country, and that includes our muslim neighbors.

However, When They Face Mecca To Pray, I'll rightly view them with suspicion, for their loyalties are to an ancient god, with a brutal kill-culture that seeks to dominate or destroy all "non-believers" around the world.

That Is Pure Evil.

That's The Lesson We've Learned Today With A Dozen Murders At Ft. Hood, Texas!
