This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Its Shari'ah, Stupid #9

This is the ninth installment of a series on offensive Jihad in Fiqh.

Ibn Taymiyya, d. 1328, hanbali. Al-Siyasa al-Shariyya, cit. ur Rudolph Peters, Jihad in Classical and Modern Islam, s. 44-54.
Since lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore, according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought. As for those who cannot offer resistance or cannot fight, such as women, children, monks, old people, the blind, handicapped, and their likes, they shall not be killed, unless they actually fight with words [i.e. by propaganda] and acts [e.g. by spying or otherwise assisting in the warfare]. […] we may only fight those who fight us when we want to make God’s religion victorious. […]

This jihad is obligatory if it is carried out on our intitiative and also if it is waged as defence. If we take the initiative, it is a collective duty, [which means that] if it is fulfilled by a sufficient number [of Muslims], the obligation lapses for all others and the merit goes to those who have fulfilled it […] But if the enemy wants to attack the Muslims, then repelling him becomes a duty for all those under attack and for the others in order to help them.

So the latter [form of jihad] consists in defense of the religion, of things that are inviolable, and of lives. Therefore it is fighting out of necessity. The former, however, is voluntary fighting in order to propagate the religion, to make it triumph and to intimidate the enemy, such as was the case with the expedition to Tabuk and the lik.

  • since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore, according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought.
    • Get a clue! It means that everyone who does not embrace Islam or submit to subjugation & extortion must be fought.
  • they shall not be killed, unless they actually fight with words
    • Do you understand this? We may be killed because we expose Islam with these blog posts; even though we may be too old or infirm to fight on the battlefield.
  • This jihad is obligatory if it is carried out on our intitiative
    • Defense it ain't! It is offensive, aggressive war of conquest. Get a clue!
  • The former, however, is voluntary fighting in order to propagate the religion, to make it triumph and to intimidate the enemy, such as was the case with the expedition to Tabuk and the lik.
    • to propagate Islam
    • to make Islam triumph
    • to intimidate the enemy
      • Get a clue, for Chrissake! Islam is a war machine, neither a religion nor peaceful.
