Exposure - Jihad: A British Story
Deeyah Khan

Introduction to Tareeqat: Seven Elements of Living Sufism
Dr. Kamran Ahmed, Transcript: New Age Islam

 A few years ago I lost a few dear  friends to a suicide bombimg. I have their blood on my hands  and the blood of hundreds and thousands before who have lost their lives to religious extremism in this country. I have  their blood on my hands because I knew what is going in our midst and I chose to close my eyes. And I chose to ignore it. It was perhaps too difficult for me, like many others, to nail them who were doing it in the name of religion... So I sought excuses for them. It was lack of education, lack of good  governance lack of justice...

'A Civil State Is the Only Solution to Combat ISIS, Islamic Law (Fiqh) Will Only Lead To Partitioning Of Iraq Into Sunni, Shia, Kurdish Lands': Former Iraqi MP Ayad Jamal Al-Din
Ayad Jamal Al-Din

In a recent TV interview with Al-Iraqiya TV, Baghdad, former Iraqi MP Ayad Jamal Al-Din called for the establishment of a civil state in Iraq based on man-made law and equality, rather than on Islamic jurisprudence, as the only way to combat ISIS. He further said that there were thousands of mosques in the U.S. and worldwide that incited and prepared people to join ISIS. "Islam has been politicized and is used as a sword," he said in the Al-Iraqiya TV interview, which was aired on October 17.

Former Iraqi MP Ayad Jamal Al-din: "ISIS is just the tip of the iceberg. ISIS has support. It is one of many groups. ISIS is based upon a certain ideology, upon which a certain interpretation of religion and upon a certain Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). Unfortunately, what happened to the Yazidis and others in northern Iraq is to be found in the Fiqh of Shiites and Sunnis alike. Unless we are careful in the use of the Fiqh….In my opinion, the Fiqh is more dangerous than nuclear technology. Therefore, we in Iraq are facing two choices: Either we establish a civil state which relies on man-made law, based on equality between citizens, or else we establish a state based on Fiqh on religious law. If we establish a state based on Fiqh, partitioning into a Shiite state, a Sunni state, and a Kurdish state is inevitable. Alternatively, we could establish a civil state, in which all citizens are equal in the eyes of the law."....

Debate Between Taliban Scholar & Pakistan Army Official on the killings of innocent civilians.

 (Urdu, with English Translation)

 

A Taliban scholar justifies killing of innocent children, women, as, he says, according to Hadees (Bukhari and Muslim), Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) had himself justified it and engaged in a battle in Taif knowing that it would kill non-combatant civilians including children and women.


The Taliban scholar justifies killings of moderate Muslims (for him murtad, deviant) and Pakistani soldiers on the fatawas of Deobandi ulema of the stature of Sheikhul Islam Hussain Ahmad Madani Deobandi (Rahimullah) and  Mufti Nizamuddin Shamzai Shaheed (Rahimullah). He quotes profusely from Quran and Hadees.

Pakistani Official tries to argue the case of modrate  Muslims with him, but the Taliban scholar keeps threatening him with these words: "If you do not understand what I am telling you or pretend not to listen, then we have alhamdolillah other methods also available to make you understand. Just saying la ilaha illah mohammadur rusullah is not enough for being a Muslim. Your conduct automatically expels you from Islam." On being asked by the Pakistan official, he says it is his duty to kill anyone who doesn't agree with him.

The Tears of Gaza Must Be Our Tears
Chris Hedges

Let me close tonight with one last name. Let me name those who send these tanks and fighter jets to bomb the concrete hovels in Gaza with families crouching, helpless, inside, let me name those who deny children the right to a childhood and the sick a right to care, those who torture, those who carry out assassinations in hotel rooms in Dubai and on the streets of Gaza City, those who deny the hungry food, the oppressed justice and foul the truth with official propaganda and state lies. Let me call them, not by their honorific titles and positions of power, but by the name they have earned for themselves by draining the blood of the innocent into the sands of Gaza. Let me name them for who they are: terrorists.....

This debate was broadcast right across Pakistan Army radio and on two-way handheld radio communication......

 

 

So after ten years I have to admit that this attempt to link with personal linkages was wrong. We as journalists have no right to go around pretending as if we're holier than anyone else. We can get things wrong. It is our duty to raise questions which is what we did. And once the answers are in, you cannot now hold up somebody guilty just because the congress wants to indulge in the politics of fear. just because the congress wants to use phrases that have been used at that moment under a cloud of suspicion, but the phrases that have become irrelevant after scrutiny. So, I'm ready to admit it and I hope others will also admit as much, and now carry on.......

 

Over the past quarter of a century seen in Europe and the US is any indication, the "Islamic researchers" who drafted The Project more than two decades ago see their long-term plan to conquer the West and to see the Green flag of Islam raised over its citizens realized so rapidly, efficiently and completely. If Islamists are equally successful in the years to come, Westerners ought to enjoy their personal and political freedoms while they last.
