In the wake of the jihad onslaught and an epidemic of beheadings and mass executions on the cause of Islam, jihad support groups and Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR work the next phase of the jihad against freedom and non-Muslims.
That, too, is jihad.
The only people spreading islamophobia are Muslims slaughtering, beheading, violently converting in the cause of Islam.
In a PR stunt, Hamas-CAIR claims to condemn the beheading, but they do not condemn the quranic verses and Islamic texts and teaching that call for such slaughter. So their condemnation is empty, transparent rhetoric. Why aren’t American Muslim groups running programs across the US to stop Muslims from going to the Middle East to wage jihad. Where are the Muslim initiatives to expunge the Qur’an of the violent texts that teach/preach jihad?
A number of parents and concerned members of the Muslim community spoke to this very thing at Peter King’s hearings on Islamic jihad. Muslim groups like CAIR derided, attacked King. The parents and community members who spoke were attacked by Muslim Brotherhood Rep. Hakim Muhammad (aka Keith Ellison) and jihadist Muslim Brotherhood groups like CAIR. What are the Muslim organizations and communities doing to fight jihad?
What programs have Muslim organizations and mosques instituted to combat this?
What is being done to expunge Islam of the Quranic texts and teachings that command jihad, Jew-killing, hatred of the non-believer, misogyny, etc.?
What programs are currently being offered at schools and universities to deprogram, denounce Islamic jihad and the bloody, unfathomable toll it has taken on humanity?
Instead, CAIR lies and says the beheading is anti-Islamic, when in point of fact, beheading is Islamic ritual slaughter. CAIR doesn’t want people to see the video for fear the uninitiated might see and understand the true nation of Islamic jihad:
[NOTE: CAIR recommends that the video of both killings not be distributed or viewed to avoid encouraging further violence by ISIS or any other group.]ISIS’s actions directly violate the clear commands of the Quran, Islam’s revealed text, and the traditions (hadith) of the Prophet Muhammad.In chapter 76 of the Quran, God says: “(The truly virtuous are) they … who give food — however great be their own want of it — to the needy, the orphan and the captive.”One hadith quotes the Prophet Muhammad strongly condemning a military commander who, without the prophet’s knowledge, had harmed prisoners.Another hadith has the prophet offering his own shirt to a man who gave his shirt to a prisoner of war who was captured without one.CAIR recently reiterated its condemnation of the “un-Islamic and morally repugnant” violence and religious extremism of ISIS.CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
CAIR conveniently omits:
“So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens….” Qur’an 47:4
Islamic State is acting in accord with Islamic law for captives:
As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first, to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, “When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [Islam] then strike [their] necks” (Qur’an sura 47, verse 4) (Abu’l-Hasan al-Mawardi, The Laws of Islamic Governance).
(WASHINGTON DC – 09/03/2014) – The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of several national and local organizations, today condemns a terrorist and anti-Islam group for a video purporting to show the gruesome beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
The murder of innocent civilians is immoral, illegal, barbaric, and in direct contravention of the major tenets of Islam and Islamic law. No cause or purpose is served by this heinous act other than a clear manifestation of this group’s cruel and un-Islamic nature.
“We are outraged that we once again find ourselves in the position to condemn this organization that calls itself the “Islamic State”, also known by the acronym ISIS, for killing Mr. Sotloff, especially so soon after its members murdered journalist James Foley,” said Oussama Jammal, USCMO secretary general.
“We recognize that all innocent life is sacred and so we also denounce this group for the rampant violence, terror, murder and mayhem it is spreading throughout the region against Muslims and non-Muslims alike. They do not represent me, American Muslims or the world’s 1.5 billion Muslim. ISIS must know that such a dreadful acts will never be condoned and will be strongly deplored,” Mr. Jammal emphasized.
During these difficult days, the USCMO also reminds the public to avoid spreading Islamophobia by using the actions of ISIS to characterize and demonize all Muslims, globally and here in the United States. We unequivocally denounce ISIS, its mentality, and tactics under any circumstances.
“We at the USCMO offer our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Sotloff’s family. We pray they find solace and we pray that Mr. Sotloff’s murderers will be brought to justice,” Mr. Jammal said.
The USCMO also demands the immediate release of British hostage David Cawthorne Haines, who was seen in the current video and whom the group threatened to execute as well.
Founding members of USCMO: American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), Muslim American Society (MAS), Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed).
