|A number of extremist groups sprang up in
Iraq following the invasion and occupation by the US. While nobody
denies an occupied people’s right to resistance, some groups,
claiming to serve the cause of Islam and Iraqis, are indulging in
acts that no sane and humane person can condone.
You see? Muslims don’t have double standards. This
sister is on one hand legitimizing the "right" of his brothers
to be terrorists and on the other hand she is saying they should be
moderate terrorists. This is not double standard. This is Islamic
Overlooking the fact that in Iraq there has been a free election
for the first time ever and that the Iraqis are in control of their own
destiny for the first time, she still calls it "occupation".
This is not double standard. This is Islamic standard.
She also says “people” have the right to
resistance. Resistance against whom? Against the democratically elected
government of the people? Against the citizens of their country? Why
can’t these "people" join other people, enter into the
democratic process and accept the will of the majority? Why they have to
bully the majority with terror? This is of course not double standard.
Muslims don’t like democracy. They prefer to take the power through
terrorism. So no double standard here. This is Islamic standard.
They abduct people,
seek ransom and kill them if their demands are not met. Many of
their hostages have been poor Muslims from countries like
Bangladesh and Pakistan — countries that had opposed the US war
Some of their victims
were laborers and drivers — people who leave behind their loved
ones back home in search of a better livelihood. They have nothing
to do with politics.
Yes that is very wrong. They should not abduct Muslim brothers.
They should only take infidel Americans and Europeans and kill
them. Muslims never kill a Muslim brother.
They must be Joooz doing these things to give bad name to Islam.
Two Pakistani Kashmiris
were among many hapless people brutally murdered by such extremist
groups. What was the crime of these people? Nobody knows.
And what was the crime of westerners? Where they guilty of something?
But of course, they were kafir. What am I thinking, silly me. Only Muslim
Shame on such people
who claim to be Muslims but perpetrate acts that no religion can
ever condone, let alone Islam, the religion of peace that enjoins
its followers to forgive others.
Really? Does Islam teach that?
Ibn Ishaq and Tabari say that the Prophet PBUH upon
winning in the battle of Badr; beheaded a few of his captives including
Nazar bin Harith, his own cousin, because he had mocked the holy Prophet
in severl years ago in Mecca and had hurt his feelings. Ali, the other cousin of
Nazar carried out the execution. Talk about family values. Muhammad also ordered Aqabeh bin Abi
Mo'it to be beheaded. Tabari quotes Ibn Ishaq that when Aqabeh
heard this he cried out in anguish "O Muhammad, who will take care of
my little children?" The holy Prophet PBUH responded
"Hell!" [Tabari Persian v 3. p. 977]
The Prophet also sent his men to raid a merchant
caravan during the sacred months of pilgrimage when killing and looting
for Arabs was taboo. At Nakhlah Muslims deceived the men of the caravan, pretending to
be going for pilgrimage, then murdered one of them treacherously and took
the rest as hostage. Muhammad then threatened to behead the
prisoners if their families did not pay ransom. Geez! I wonder
whether these terrorists have been inspired by the examples set by the
holy Prophet by any chance.
I am sure Ibn Ishaq and Tabari were Joooz. They said
so many stories of violence and terror that anyone reading their books
comes to think the holy Prophet PBUH was a terrorist. We all know the Prophet
would never do such things.
Extremist groups are
active in other Muslim countries too. Pakistan’s President
Pervez Musharraf, who sided with the US in the war on terror, has
survived several assassination attempts by extremist groups. What
Musharraf did was the right thing to do. It served his country’s
interests. The extremists did not like this because it reined them
in. Pakistan, where the extremists played politics by instigating
sectarian violence, where they recruited young people to fight
other Muslims telling this is jihad and where they held sway in
every domain, suddenly found themselves in the soup after
Musharraf backed the US war on terror.
by the Pakistani government antagonized them still further. Many
extremist groups were dismantled but many have sprung up because
they are backed by people who seek to perpetuate their reign of
They are all Joooz.
|Terrorism, in every form and
manifestation, should be condemned not by words but by action and
extremists should not be allowed to distort the true image of
Islam. It is incumbent on every Muslim to play his role because it
is nothing less than a religious duty to thwart those trying to
distort religious values.
Yes I agree. I also suggest we shred our Qurans or burn them. This is the book that
inspires the youth to become terrorists and gives Islam bad
name. The Quran is a manual of terror. This book must have been written by
Islam is a religion of peace. It never teaches those things that are in
