Rush Limbaugh read from Shahzad's statement on his radio show, and posted this transcript. Here is the most significant quote from his Wednesday 10/6/10 broadcast.
Islamic hatred of America is not a function of our system, our freedom, our foreign policy or our existence. It is a function of not being Muslim and rejecting Islam. The religious component of Islam is a fraudulent blend of plagiarized & distorted scriptures, apocryphal texts and ancient paganism. Because it is an impious fraud, it can not stand up to comparison or criticism. Islam can only respond with arrogance and violence. It must therefore eliminate all rivals. Islam can not tolerate the existence of a superior & more successful culture.
Christians, Jews, Sabeans & Zoroastrians must be converted or subjugated as dhimmis; humbled, humiliated and extorted. Atheists & pagans must be converted or killed. Muslims are commanded to march against them and offer three alternatives:
- Embrace Islam.
- Join the jihad and share in the spoils.
- Remain in place and receive nothing.
- Live as humiliated, subjugated & extorted dhimmis under Islamic domination ("People of the book" only.)
Islamic law also tells us what the caliph does in the regular course of business. [Emphasis and link added.]
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, in his footnote, concentrates on jizya. Mohammad Asad, a convert from Judaism, tries to deceive us with a variation on the Shi'ite assertion of general conditionality, asserting that all jihad is defensive, never aggressive. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi explains two grounds for attacking Jews & Christians and spends the next four paragraphs explaining jizya.
Tafsir Al-Jalalayn is fairly terse, adding some details. Tafsir Ibn Abbas gives nothing more than translation. Ibn Kathir's Tafsir is the most loquacious, giving us this gem of explicit explanation. "This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination." [Emphasis added.]
The Profiteer is quoted in a statement which confirms the jihad imperatives and conveys super important information.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have." [Emphasis added.]
Review what we learned from that saying:
- Moe was ordered to fight us until we become Muslims..
- Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims.
- We have no rights.
