“So when you meet those who disbelieve, strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them.” Quran 47:4
Islamic supremacists and their leftwing lapdogs in media, academia and entertainment insist this is “out of context” or “half a quote.” it’s the whole quote alright.
47:4 – “Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers, smite at their necks, and when ye have caused a bloodbath amongst them, bind a bond firmly on them”
The historical context of this verse, places the verse before the battle of Badr, that is, before Muhammad and his army, defeated the first Quraysh attack. “Those who have disbelieved our signs”, rather than “The Quraysh, who have disbelieved our signs”. This ambiguity was intentional, so that the verse would apply indefinitely to pretty much anyone who “˜disbelieves”.
This verse gives the Muslims permission to behead the Quraysh, to cause a bloodbath amongst them, and to take prisoners (In pre-emption of the battle). All violent acts, of which the Muslims do, during the battle of Badr…
The process is:
1. Allah gives Muslims permission to a) Behead unbelievers, b) Cause a bloodbath amongst them, c) Take prisoners.
2. The Muslims act upon said verse, in the battle of Badr, by a) Beheading unbelievers, b) Causing a bloodbath, and c) Taking prisoners.
Perfectly consistent with the verse.
Today”s Muslims, who look at the verse and the associated historical context, will emulate it by doing exactly what the Muslims did, when the verse was revealed to the Muslims of the time – They will go out and behead unbelievers, cause a bloodbath amongst them and take prisoners.

ISIS Member: Beheading Inspired By Islamic Texts
Turkish ISIS Operative ‘Abu Obaida Al-Turki’: No Such Thing As Opposition In ISIS; Beheading, Slitting Of Throats Inspired By Islamic Texts
Captured Turkish Islamic State (ISIS) operative Elias Ahmed Aiden aka Abu Obaida Al-Turki said in an interview that “there is no such thing as an ‘opposition'” in ISIS. Regarding ISIS’s beheading of its prisoners, he said that “we just implemented what is mentioned in the Islamic sources.” Defending the beheading of James Foley, Aiden cited shari’a, saying that “if an infidel is captured during war or battle, the decision of whether to kill him or opt for a prisoner swap is the prerogative of the imam.” The interview aired on the Saudi Arabia-based Al-Arabiya Network on June 28, 2019.
MRMRI, July 13, 2019:
“There Is No Such Thing As An ‘Opposition'”
Abu Obaida Al-Turki: “ISIS is not a democratic state. We don’t have such a thing as opposition. There were some objections to some of the policies of the organization from within its ranks. During that period, there was a wave of arrests inside the organization. Many ISIS members who objected to some of the decisions and policies were arrested. Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and the leaders close to him control the policy-making. There is no such thing as an ‘opposition.’ For example, no one could [criticize] the  burning of Muath Al-Kasasbeh, the Jordanian pilot who was captured.”
Interviewer: “Who made the decision to burn Al-Kasasbeh and where was it carried out?”
Abu Obaida Al-Turki: “There is no doubt that it was decided by Al-Baghdadi and his Shura Council.”
“We Just Implemented What Is Mentioned In The Islamic Sources”
Interviewer: “You in ISIS believe in burning and beheading people. You do not regret this…”
Abu Obaida Al-Turki: “I explained about the burning of people. As for the beheading of people and the slitting of their throats – I would be lying if I said that this is not part of our principles. This issue is mentioned in the books of hadith. We just implemented what is mentioned in the Islamic sources.”
Interviewer: “That’s your view…”
Abu Obaida Al-Turki: “However, filming it and presenting it for the world to see… This is not something that the Prophet Muhammad and his companions did.”
“If An Infidel Is Captured During War Or Battle, The Decision Of Whether To Kill Him Or Opt For A Prisoner Swap Is The Prerogative Of The Imam”
Interviewer: “Did James Foley, the journalist, have a fair trial before his beheading? What crime did a journalist seeking the truth commit that justified beheading him? Was this mentioned in the hadith or in the Quran?”
Abu Obaida Al-Turki: “Any Jew, Christian, or [Muslim] implicated in heresy or polytheism, as defined by the shari’a, is considered to be an infidel in Islam.
“If an infidel is captured during war or battle, the decision of whether to kill him or opt for a prisoner swap is the prerogative of the imam, according to the shari’a.”
