Topic: Islamic Jihad
History will some day record that when Civilization was attacked by an implacable and vicious foe, some mounted the barricades in its defense and some jeered and threw rocks at the backs of those defenders.
We hear enough of our Foes and their Apologists, Let us think for awhile of those who have mounted the barricades in the defense of Civilization.
Some may claim that the Enemy is Islam and that has some truth to it, but in the sense that if Christianity of a thousand years ago, were suddenly transported to the present, fanatic members of that creed would be our equal enemies.
The Truth is our Implacable Foe is a from of Islam from Medieval Times that has remained unchanged, equally true is that some of the strongest supporters of Civilization and Foes of Terrorism lie in those Muslim Sects which like Christianity have grown, evolved and changed from those early days.
When news of Genocide in Dafur, Sudan started to breach the surface of the Mainstream Media, my first reactions were. "its about TIME" and "What TOOK you so LONG?"
The truth was genocide in Southern Sudan had been ongoing for quite some time to on the order of 3 million deaths. That is a story for another time.
The Dafur atrocities are being committed upon a Muslim Sect called Sufi. By fanatics Islamic Jihadists. To the Jihadist, Sufi are Apostates, to be put down with all the fervor as they would put down an infidel, for the Sufi Sect of Islam is NOT the same as the bleak creed from a thousand years ago the Jihadist follow.
As a matter of fact one of the leading spokesmen for Sufi Islam in the US has been very outspoken about the dangers of Terrorism Abroad AND here in the Us.
His name is Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, of The Islamic Supreme Council of America.

Radical Islamists have perverted the traditions of Islam

The danger is that radical groups could become the official representatives of Muslim immigrants in the West
WESTERN observers, both among the general public and the media, commonly make the mistake of thinking that Islamism is the same as traditional Islam. Even Western researchers describe Islamism as a resurgence of traditional Islam. In contrast, moderate Sunni Muslims are characterized as those whose faith is mitigated, influenced by syncretism, or diluted by a certain amount of secularisation and .
But this turns reality upside-down. In fact, Islamists depart in important ways from the Islamic tradition. Indeed, some outstanding traditional Muslim scholars see Islamism as a symptom of secularisation and as a reshaping of their religion into a modern, ideological totalitarianism. I share this view. The distinction between traditional Islam and Islamism can be seen in many specifics. Tradition attributes to the ruler the right to appoint competent scholars as interpreters of the Islamic law; Islamists do not any authority apart from the leaders of their own groups. Tradition makes the authority of a scholar dependent on the possession of written documents of appointment signed by his predecessor; Islamists regularly install people bereft of any theological or legal education into positions of Islamic authority.
Another point: Sunnis do not see Islam as an dependent on a leadership; Islamists, on the contrary, see their leading militants as the Islamic leadership, thereby cutting out the need to refer to traditional scholars for guidance. Perhaps most important of all is the Islamists' subordination of religion to politics. Khalid Duran notes the distinction between traditional Islam and its political counterfeit by underlining their different understandings of the relationships between religion and politics: "Whether Islamists like the term fundamentalists or not, their understanding of religion resembles the fundamentalists in other religions. This is not to say that Islamists are more religious or more genuinely Islamic than other Muslims . . . Islamism is a late 20th century totalitarianism. It follows fascism and communism, picking up from those and seeking to refine their methods of domination
Can anything be plainer spoken let me repeat that last part Islamism is a late 20th century totalitarianism. It follows fascism and communism, picking up from those and seeking to refine their methods of domination
You would expect to find those words on a Neo-Con website they fit in well here, but I TELL YOU.
Islamic Supreme Council of America IS along beside us on the barricades in defense of Civilization.
There are other stranger still fellow warriors you have not heard of. Oh yes you have heard and read much about Chechnya. BUT in any form shape or manner have you EVER heard the words of the Mufti of Chechnya?
One would think the Spiritual Leader of Islam in that region might be of interest to the News Media, his thoughts his views. But maybe its because he does not have the CORRECT views? Do I need to mention he is a Sufi Muslim and HIS thoughts are:
Because of lack of reliable information, some Muslims are supposing that the Chechen people are involved in "jihad" against Russia. The reality is quite different: all the area of Muslim former-Soviet Republics has become a central point in the project of Wahhabi expansion. Because of the inner weakness of most of those countries, some Wahhabi terrorists are trying to conquer them by force, and to install there a Khawarij, Taliban-like dictatorship. Those people are, as always, trying to extinguish Allah's light, and to export Wahhabism in countries where it never existed before.
Chechnya has become a battlefield since Wahhabis want to occupy it "spiritually", by corrupting the Islamic 'aqidah and impose heresy by force. Sunni Muslims are - as in many other cases - the main victims of this tragedy. May Allah Ta'ala help them to free themselves from this menace, and may He grant them relief after hardship.
Praise be to Allah and Allah knows best.
May Allah accept your fast and salawat and grant you a Ramadan mubarak.
Wa-s-salamu 'alaykum wa rahmat-Ullahi wa barakatuH.

All know and it has been reported over and over again that for the most part the rabid beasts of 9/11 were Saudi. Are there OTHER types of Saudis? Yes there are here is one very brave Saudi. The Religious Policeman
A Saudi man's diary of life in the "Magic Kingdom", where the Religious Police ensure that everything remains as it was in the Middle Ages.
In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.
I said brave and I meant it. Certain thoughts spoken can have fatal consequences behind the Quran Curtain and The Policeman lives in the heat of Wahhabi Jihadism.
His last post was. Tuesday, August 10, 2004 where he wrote: Back, but inactive
Asalaam aleikum, everyone.
I'm back and rested after a fine vacation, and well.
However, for reasons I don't want to go into here, I won't be actively blogging for a while.
Let us hope he did not attract to much attention.
The last execution for Apostasy in Saudi Arabia was only In September 1993, Sadeq Mallallah, 23, was beheaded in Qateef on a charge of apostasy for owning a Bible.
Let us be clear about this. These Gentlemen do not equivocate, do not excuse, they state plainly that in this world there is a Great Evil and some of them make these statements not from the Safety of the Western World at home, secure at their computer, but in the Heart of Darkness itself and at GREAT PERIL.
We ARE at War, if you should ever meet one of these men, say "Advance Friend, and be RECOGNIZED"
