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.

Obamination: Peace: Hillary Clinton Spews Feces

The news stories about Clinton's insane remarks about the 'mid east conflict" center on Obamination's frustration. It becomes obvious that the primary focus of their frustration and rage is Israel's refusal to extend the construction moratorium.  That is all about kicking  & back stabbing Israel while pretending to stroke and support her.

Full text link to the remarks.  Video Link.

The secretary of State spoke at the  seventh annual forum of the Brookings Institution's Saban Center for Middle East Policy. One news article described the speech as "lengthy".  The video indicates a run time of 33:10.  I find the rant to be insane, dishonest & redundant, a target rich environment  I have selected some of the more pungent clumps of feces to kick, for the full context, use the link provided above.

..."we are here discussing tonight – strengthening U.S.-Israeli relations and securing a just and lasting peace in the Middle East."

relationship

    The relationship between America and Israel has been one of treachery & enmity ever since Shrub went back on his wiser word and devised the Road Map to Hell.  We need to tear down that relationship and start over. Two sovereign nations, supposedly allies, should not be attempting to dictate to or dominate each other. There should be mutual respect, not condescension.

just & lasting peace

    Peace imposed by aggressive conquest is not a just peace. Peace resulting from appeasing an aggressor is neither just nor lasting. A just peace can only result from a decision of victory for the victim, not for the aggressor. Lasting peace can only result from breaking the aggressor's will & capacity to launch repeated conquests.  In the case of Islam, lasting peace can only come from extinction.  Now is the time to dig in with our pitch fork, remove the feces, and expose the core of the conflict.

  • Allah commanded the Muslims to wage war against Jews.
    • 9:29 Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.
  • Moe confirmed the order.
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 196:
      Narrated Abu Huraira:
      Allah 's Apostle said, " I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,' and whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,' his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)" 
  • Moe expressed his preference for the conquest of the Levant.
    • Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477
      Narrated Ibn Hawalah:

          The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah's chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.

  • The gates of Paradise will not swing open for Muslims until they hunt down and kill the last Jew.
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
          Narrated Abu Huraira:

          Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

  • Allah gave the command, Moe confirmed it, Umar carried it out.
  • Allah will always send someone to harass the Jews.
    • 7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allâh's Forgiveness).
  • Jesus will return to help them finish the job.
    • Sunan Abu Dawud 37.4310: ...He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam....
    • Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews [Tafsir Ibn Kathir] ...In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews....
  • Allah will give the land to Muslims, through conquests, his decision is irreversible.
    • 13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.
  • If a reversal occurs, the Muslims must reconquer the land. 
    • 2:191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
  • Allah promised a 2: 1 kill ratio.
    • 8:66. Now Allâh has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of Allâh. And Allâh is with As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.). 
  • Allah gave the Muslims "good news" !
    • The Good News that Muslims will Dominate the People of the Book  [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]
      "While delivering the good news to His believing servants that victory and dominance will be theirs against the disbelieving, atheistic People of the Scriptures, Allah then said, (They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped.) ﴿3:111

Islam is the "obstacle to peace"!

    The first fact which must be faced is Allah's command, with Moe's confirmation. Then there is his special interest in the Levant, his predictions, his promises and his good news. The restoration of the state of Israel contradicts and disproves Allah's promise & good news. It proves Allah to be an impotent idol, the ultimate blasphemy. Muslims can never tolerate that. 

    There was no peace, there is no peace and there will be no peace while there are Muslims alive on this planet. It ain't possible!  Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool, a liar or both.  

    The damnable doctrines of Islam, not settlements, not Jerusalem, not "refugees", not "occupation";  Islam is the "obstacle to peace"!  In Islam, peace is what happens when Dar ul-Islam engulfs Dar ul-Harb through conquest. Peace comes with conquest.  Until the conquest is completed, there is "fitna". I do not expect that I will ever hear any politician acknowledge this fatal fact.


I want to focus tonight on the way forward, on America’s continuing engagement in helping the parties achieve a two-state solution that ends the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians once and for all, and on what it will take, finally, to realize that elusive, but essential goal.

two-state solution

    Eliminating Islam is the solution. There is no other just solution.  Creating another terrorist state entity will make the problem worse, not solve it. Muslims do not want a state, they want a single nation of Islam, on a global scale: the caliphate.

ends the conflict permanently

    The conflict is existential: While the nation of Israel exists; while one Jew lives, Believers must wage war, that is their role in life. When Israel and Jews are eliminated, they will concentrate on conquering  us.  Politicians can not acknowledge the fact that Islam is the source of conflict.


The United States will always be there when Israel is threatened.

when Israel is threatened

    Israel is always threatened, that is the constant. It is not possible for Muslims to cease threatening and attacking Israel.

We have also stepped up efforts to block the transfer of dangerous weapons and financing to terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. But Iran and its proxies are not the only threat to regional stability or to Israel’s long-term security. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and between Israel and Arab neighbors is a source of tension and an obstacle to prosperity and opportunity for all the people of the region. It denies the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and it poses a threat to Israel’s future security. It is at odds also with the interests of the United States.

terrorist groups

    Islam is the terrorist group "terrorist groups" are composed of believers. Only those who wage war are believers, its what Islam is; what Muslims do.

Iran and its proxies

    "Its Islam, stgupid." Iran, Hamas & Hezbollah are Muslims. Terrorism: what Islam is; what Muslims do. Moe is their role model, he was a terrorist.

legitimate aspirations

    Since when are regional & global conquest "legitimate aspirations"?  There is nothing legitimate about genocide & politicide. They do not give a damn about statehood; they need to eliminate Israel as a stepping stone to continued and expanding conquest.

conflict between Israel

and the Palestinians

    That is a code phrase for Israel's resistance to reconquest. If Israel would just surrender, the whole problem would be solved.


I know that improvements in security and growing prosperity have convinced some that this conflict can be waited out or largely ignored. This view is wrong and it is dangerous. The long-term population trends that result from the occupation are endangering the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people. Israelis should not have to choose between preserving both elements of their dream. But that day is approaching.

the occupation

    In the seventh century, Umar conquered the Roman Province of Syria. Muslims invaded and occupied Israel. Barack Hussein Obama & Hillary Clinton can't get a clue. The 'occupation' & 'settlements' they bitterly kvetch about are smokescreens that prevent us from perceiving the real  illegal occupation & settlements.

Jewish homeland

    Is there any good reason why Jews should not return to their ancient patrimony?  England conquered it from the Ottoman Empire which was one of the aggressors in the first world war.  She promised to return it to its rightful heirs and reneged, giving 75% of it to the Hashemites  driven from the Hijaz by Saud, as a consolation prize.  In the 1948 war, Egypt & Jordan illegally seized Gaza, Judea & Samaria.  When they renewed their genocidal assault in 1967, Israel won them back.  There is no good reason why Israel should not annex and settle that land There is no good reason  why Israel should surrender it or why it should be judenrein!   


At the same time, the ever-evolving technology of war, especially the expanding reach of the rockets amassed on Israel’s borders means that it will be increasingly difficult to guarantee the security of Israeli families throughout the country without implementing peace agreements that answer these threats.

peace agreements

    Conceited, arrogant fools imagine that peace is made by agreements. Peace is made by victory, not by agreements!  In an existential conflict, there can be no peace while the aggressor exists. Muslims are bound by a religious  obligation to exterminate Israel. They can not get into Paradise until they finish that task. Get a clue!

    Muslims do not make peace agreements, they make hudna, which last no more than ten years, and can be abrogated as soon as the Muslims recover sufficient strength to resume aggression.  They are commanded not to be weak and "ask not for peace" while they have the upper hand.

"Radicalization of the region’s young people and growing support for violent ideologies undermine the stability and prosperity of the Middle East."

Radicalization

    Radicals & extremists are imaginary creatures, they do not exist. Islam consists of believers.  To discover what believers are and what they do, read 9:111 & 49:15.

..."ending this conflict once and for all and achieving a comprehensive regional peace is imperative for safeguarding Israelis’ future."

ending this conflict once and for all

    A single kernel of truth in a massive pile of feces.

"We also look at our friends the Palestinians, and we remember the painful history of a people who have never had a state of their own, and we are renewed in our determination to help them finally realize their legitimate aspirations. The lack of peace and the occupation that began in 1967 continue to deprive the Palestinian people of dignity and self-determination. This is unacceptable, and, ultimately, it too is unsustainable."

our friends

    Israel is our friend, we should be theirs.  Falestinians are our enemies, not our friends.

state of their own

    Some of them had Egypt, others had Jordan,  Iraq or Yemen.    They occupied Israel; they have no right to it..   

..."bring a just, lasting, and comprehensive peace to the Middle East based on two states for two peoples."

two states for two peoples.

    Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Trans-Jordan; what did that solve? What will the creation of another Falestinian state solve? What is the difference between the Falestinians and the majority  in Jordan?

...:their respective aspirations; for the Israelis, security and recognition; for the Palestinians, an independent, viable sovereign state of their own."

aspirations

  1. Reconquest of Israel.
  2. Global conquest. 
"There is no alternative other than reaching mutual agreement."

no alternative

    There is no alternative to victory!

..."they have not yet made the difficult decisions that peace requires."

difficult decisions

  1. Abandon  Islam.
  2. Abandon Jihad.
  3. Recognize Israel's right to exist.
..."moving forward with refocused goals and expectations."

refocused goals and expectations

    Forcing Israel to commit suicide.

"It is time to grapple with the core issues of the conflict on borders and security; settlements, water and refugees; and on Jerusalem itself"

core issues

    Islam, jihad, genocide, terrorism.  There are no other issues.

borders

    Israel's borders with Jordan & Egypt, Lebanon & Syria.

security

    Eliminate Islam from a circle whose center is Jerusalem and whose radius is the longest rocket range.

settlements

    Remove the Muslim settlements from Israel.

refugees

    Resettle them in the Arab countries their ancestors left when they occupied Israel.

..."continue to urge the states of the region to develop the content of the Arab Peace Initiative and to work toward implementing its vision."

Arab Peace Initiative

    Reconquest of Israel followed by the rest of the world. 

"Significantly, both sides decided together to pursue a framework agreement that would establish the fundamental compromises on all permanent status issues and pave the way for a final peace treaty."

decided together

    Abbas never took the first step toward that objective, he dragged his feet all the way.

..."the parties can begin to rebuild confidence, demonstrate their seriousness, and hopefully find enough common ground on which to eventually re-launch direct negotiations and achieve that framework."

rebuild confidence

    That sentence is full of  code phrases  for "surrender first, then we can talk about the terms".

"The Palestinian leaders must be able to show their people that the occupation will be over."

occupation will be over

    The occupation will be over when the Arabs go home. When will they leave Israel?

"Israeli leaders must be able to offer their people internationally recognized borders that protect Israel’s security."

borders

    Borders  do not stop rockets, mortars, artillery shells or homicide bombers, regardless of international recognition.  When Israel built a wall to protect her citizens, the whole world condemned it.

"Second, on refugees. This is a difficult and emotional issue, but there must be a just and permanent solution that meets the needs of both sides."

refugees

    Arab leaders told them to evacuate, clearing the way for their armies to exterminate the Jews. They failed. That's tough. You lost, get over it and go home to Egypt and Jordan, where you belong.

"The position of the United States on settlements has not changed and will not change. Like every American administration for decades, we do not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity. We believe their continued expansion is corrosive not only to peace efforts and two-state solution, but to Israel’s future itself."

settlements

    For what good reason should Jews not live where their ancestors lived before Rome expelled them from their homeland?  For what good reason should Jews not live in Hebron, where their ancestors are buried?   Why should any part of the world be judenrein?  

"And finally, on Jerusalem which is profoundly important for Jews, Muslims, and Christians everywhere. There will surely be no peace without an agreement on this, the most sensitive of all the issues. The religious interests of people of all faiths around the world must be respected and protected. We believe that through good faith negotiations, the parties should mutually agree on an outcome that realizes the aspirations for both parties, for Jerusalem, and safeguard its status for people around the world."

Jerusalem

    Why should Jews not live in the city King David built up, where King Solomon built the  Temple?  In 1948, when King Hussein illegally seized half the city, he promised to allow access. He violated that vow, excluding Jews, desecrating synagogues & cemeteries. Why should that  injustice be repeated??

religious interests

    What religious interest?  Moe had a nightmare in which he rode a flying mule with the face of a woman from Medina to Jerusalem and from there to Paradise where he met the Prophets.  The Jews had Jerusalem as their capital city and built their Temple there. Jesus was crucified there. How does Moe's dream match those interests and connections??

..."maintaining pressure on Hamas to end the weapons smuggling and accept the fundamental principles of peacemaking – recognizing Israel, renouncing violence, and abiding by past agreements. This is the only path to achieve Palestinians’ dreams of independence."

pressure on Hamas

    What pressure?  Who ever stopped or even  slowed their rearmament?  Yeah, right, and Res 1701 would prevent Hexbollah from rearming.

recognizing Israel

    What makes any fool think that will ever happen? Hamas is Islam. Islam is Hamas. Islam is a religious obligation to exterminate Jews and conquer the world.  Has Hillary ever considered reading the Charter of Hamas?

renouncing violence

    You might as well demand that they renounce Islam!

past agreements

    Arafat made an agreement, and never implemented any of its provisions.  Hamas never made any agreement with Israel, what fool expects them to abide by the Oslo Accords?

"As the Palestinian security forces continue to become more professional and capable, we look to Israel to facilitate their efforts." ... "And we hope to see a significant curtailment of incursions by Israeli troops into Palestinian areas."

Palestinian security forces

    The grand scheme was that they would stop terror attacks. Instead of stopping  attacks, they participate in them.  Israel has to send troops in to arrest terrorists because the "security forces"  won't do it. They are not professional nor capable, neither are they willing. 


"The legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people will never be satisfied, and Israel will never enjoy secure and recognized borders until there is a two-state solution that ensures dignity, justice, and security for all."

legitimate aspirations

    Hillary has studied from Paul Joseph Goebbels, who said that a lie would be believed if repeated  with sufficient frequency. The sentence is redundant, and full of excrement.

"The United States and the international community cannot impose a solution. Sometimes I think both parties seem to think we can. We cannot. And even if we could, we would not, because it is only a negotiated agreement between the parties that will be sustainable. The parties themselves have to want it."

parties must want peace

    "From the river to the sea."  "A million martyrs marching to Jerusalem!"  Yeah, right, they want peace; give it to them!  How many MOABs would it take?

"Palestinians must appreciate Israel’s legitimate security concerns  And Israelis must accept the legitimate territorial aspirations of the Palestinian people."

legitimate territorial aspirations

    What is legitimate about "from the river to the sea"?  

"They should help build confidence, work to minimize distractions, and focus on the core questions, even in a period when they are not talking directly."

build confidence

    I already dissected that  crap; the sentence is redundant, an attempt to  summarize a manure pile.

"Across the Middle East, moderates and advocates of peace and coexistence will be strengthened, while old arguments will be drained of their venom and the rejectionists and extremists will be exposed and marginalized."

rejectionists and extremists

    What was it the Arab League said? No recognition, no peace, no negotiation?   Islam's deity commanded perpetual warfare; its Profit exemplified it, along with terrorism and genocide. Moe was the founder of Islam, not an extremist.  Genocidal jihad  is the core of Islam, it is not extremism!

    Those arrogant Harvard lawyers are so narcissistic  that they  believe they can simultaneously promise polar opposites to Arabs & Jews without anyone wising up.  Let this be a lesson to you in the 2012 election cycle. Be careful when voting and make no mistakes.

Imam Rauf: Exemplar of Arrogant Deception

At Atlas Shrugs, Pamela Geller quotes from a New York Times article: The Gift of Reconciliation. which  is off to a great start with its headline.  Exactly how can anyone establish cordial relations between predator and prey?  The lion will eat the lamb, not cuddle up  to it.

    Geller cites several relevant ayat & ahadith before bringing up other quotes which display the true nature of the Imam.  I will leave that to her. Lets get right to the money quote.

‘‘There is a perception that Jews and Muslims and Christians must be each other’s existential enemies,’’‘

‘To defeat that is an act of reconciliation.’’


    What is the basis for that perception? Is it accurate or erroneous? Perhaps Allah's word will have some clues for us. [Emphasis added, links to Noble Qur'an trans. Hilali & Khan for context. For alternative translations, search at http://www.quranbrowser.com/ ]

5:14. And from those who call themselves Christians, We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. So We planted amongst them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when they discarded Allâh's Book, disobeyed Allâh's Messengers and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds in Allâh's disobedience), and Allâh will inform them of what they used to do.

 

5:82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: "We are Christians." That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.

 

60:4. Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrâhim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allâh, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allâh Alone," except the saying of Ibrâhim (Abraham) to his father: "Verily, I will ask for forgiveness (from Allâh) for you, but I have no power to do anything for you before Allâh ." Our Lord! In You (Alone) we put our trust, and to You (Alone) we turn in repentance, and to You (Alone) is (our) final Return,


    The relationship between Muslims and disbelievers is established: enmity, hostility & hatred.  How intense is it?

2:161. Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined.


    So, they curse us, big deal. Will they do anything more effectual?

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.


    Allah commands them to wage war against us. Is that a metaphor or parable, merely part of a social narrative or something more?  Perhaps the exegetes have some guidance for us.

[...]"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."[...] [The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah]


    Tafsir Ibn Kathir interprets it as an order to fight. Maybe we need to consult earlier tafsirs.

"Fight those who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, for, otherwise, they would have believed in the Prophet (s), and who do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, such as wine, nor do they practise the religion of truth, the firm one, the one that abrogated other religions, namely, the religion of Islam — from among of those who (min, ‘from’, explains [the previous] alladhÄ«na, ‘those who’) have been given the Scripture, namely, the Jews and the Christians, until they pay the jizya tribute, the annual tax imposed them, readily (‘an yadin is a circumstantial qualifier, meaning, ‘compliantly’, or ‘by their own hands’, not delegating it [to others to pay]), being subdued, [being made] submissive and compliant to the authority of Islam." [Tafsir al-Jalalayn]

 

"(Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture) the Jews and Christians (as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day) nor in the bliss of Paradise, (and forbid not) in the Torah (that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the religion of truth) do not submit themselves to Allah through confession of Allah's divine Oneness, (until they pay the tribute readily) standing: from hand to hand, (being brought low) abased."
[
Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs]


    Jalalayn & Abbas give us details about everything except the point of interest. :Lets turn to a more modern scholar.

[...]"This is the aim of Jihad with the Jews and the Christians and it is not to force them to become Muslims and adopt the `Islamic Way of Life.' They should be forced to pay Jizyah in order to put an end to their independence and supremacy so that they should not remain rulers and sovereigns in the land."[...] [Towards Understanding the Quran]


    Maududi seems to confirm the obvious: 9:29 is an order to wage war against Jews & Christians. What did Moe say on this subject?

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
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."

 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 196:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah 's Apostle said, " I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,' and whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,' his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)"


    Moe said that he was ordered or commanded to fight; what further confirmation is required?  The Ulema based Shari'ah on the words and works of Allah & Moe.  Our final recourse is to Shari'ah. We'll start with Shafi'ite Fiqh, Reliance of the Traveller.

o9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29), [...]


    The caliph makes war on Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians, on the basis of Surah At-Taubah 29; can there be any clearer confirmation of the obvious?  But have we excluded the possibility that the war is defensive?  We turn next to Hanifi Fiqh  found in Al-Hedaya Vol. II, Book IX, Chapter II, page 141 for the answer.

"The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are generally received to this effect."


    That confirms the fact that jihad is undertaken on Islamic initiative, it is offensive, not defensive.  Surah At-Taubah 29 is outcome oriented, it has neither geographic nor chronological limits.  Could it be an anachronism, an out dated historical artifact?  Moe made it clear for us in two hadith.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

    Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

 

Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

    Jihad will be performed continuously until the end of the world, which can't come until the Muslims kill the last Jew.  That takes care of the anachronism argument. Lets review.

    Imam Rauf implied that the perception of existential enmity between Muslims and people of the book is false.  Allah instituted hostility, hatred and enmity against Jews & Christians. Allah commanded Muslims to fight Jews & Christians. Moe said that he was commanded to fight Jews and Christians. Moe amassed an army and marched on Tabuk. Tafsir Ibn Kathir confirms the order to fight. Islamic law codifies the order and confirms that jihad is undertaken aggressively, on Islamic initiative.  Moe also said that jihad would be performed until the end of the world. 

    Reference to Islam's canon of scripture, exegesis, tradition & jurisprudence reveals Imam Rauf's deception. Islam has never been conciliated with Christianity & Judaism and is in a perpetual state of existential warfare against them.  Reconciliation is impossible. Defeating the perception of perpetual existential enmity is nothing less than blinding us to objective factual reality for the purpose of disarming us; rendering us defenseless. The Cordoba Initiative is malignant malarkey.   Q.E.D.
