Yahoo News: “Don’t blame Sharia for Islamic extremism — blame colonialism”

Jihad Watch:

The propaganda is so drearily predictable. Would Yahoo News ever run a piece explaining how Sharia taught warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers? Of course not. But there is a steady stream of nonsense like this ridiculous presentation from Mark Fathi Messoud, Director of Legal Studies and Associate Professor of Politics, University of California, Santa Cruz.

Even before reading Messoud’s piece, look at the accompanying map. It’s a bit confusing because the color for Spanish colonies is very similar to the color used for countries that were never colonized at all, and the latter are not marked as such. But it shows that Iran was never colonized. What, then, explains the Islamic Republic, which finances jihad terror groups such as Hizballah and Hamas? Saudi Arabia was never colonized; what explains the fact that 15 of the 19 9/11 jihad attackers were Saudis? What explains jihad activity that went on for centuries before colonialism, as shown in The History of Jihad?

Also, is colonialism responsible for the tenets of Sharia mandating warfare against non-Muslims? Here is what the authoritative sources in Sunni Islam, the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (madhahib) say about that warfare:

Shafi’i school: A Shafi’i manual of Islamic law that was certified in 1991 by the clerics at Al-Azhar University, one of the leading authorities in the Islamic world, as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy, stipulates about jihad that “the caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…until they become Muslim or pay the non-Muslim poll tax.” It adds a comment by Sheikh Nuh “˜Ali Salman, a Jordanian expert on Islamic jurisprudence: the caliph wages this war only “provided that he has first invited [Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians] 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)…while remaining in their ancestral religions.” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.8).

Of course, there is no caliph today, and hence the oft-repeated claim that the Islamic State (ISIS) and other jihad groups are waging jihad illegitimately, as no state authority has authorized their jihad. But they explain their actions in terms of defensive jihad, which needs no state authority to call it, and becomes “obligatory for everyone” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.3) if a Muslim land is attacked. The end of the defensive jihad, however, is not peaceful coexistence with non-Muslims as equals: ‘Umdat al-Salik specifies that the warfare against non-Muslims must continue until “the final descent of Jesus.” After that, “nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent” (o9.8).

  1. Yahoo news has no brains, that is the same as blaming a sword for a murder instead of the sword user.

  2. Guess what. I don’t care.

    The reason you savages were colonized is because you were too stupid to develop commerce to take advantage of your resources because you were too busy hacking each other to death.

    “People are stupid.

    That’s our problem, people are stupid.”

    That’s axiomatic.

    …corollary:
    Stupid people are very dangerous in large groups.

    …all of which is true of them even today, Islam is FORBIDDEN to grow out of the 7th century because, Mohammad…

  5. I would argue that hundreds of thousands if not millions of lives would have been saved, either from being murdered, enslaved, or raped, were society around the globe willing to confront evil wherever it stood and not allowed veils of protection for the perpetrators like Islam or supposed racism. I want bad people dealt with, and I don’t care whether they are white, black or something other, Christian, Muslim, or something other, gay, straight, or something other. And yet there are so many protected classes that literally get away with murder.

    Goatfu**ker lives matter.

  8. Mike Flynn understood what’s going on, that’s why they went after him. But Goodness triumphs! Barack’s grandmama reportedly attended the hajj, so why shouldn’t a sizeable proortion of the population think he was at least a sympathizer?

  9. In a way, the mohammadmen remind me of the Soviets. Both declared that they sincerely wanted “peace” but neglected to mention that their definition of “peace” is the state of the world after they had conquered all opposition and subjugated all people everywhere.

  10. ^ Even a thousand years ago, the people from ‘The Land Of The Rus’ were like that. Except they just killed everyone they came across… until they got to Baghdad where the jewels and gold were.

  11. By all means, blame the 20 years of British occupation where they rebuilt the dikes and irrigation canals that the Mongols destroyed

    Thats the reason Iraq is a lunatic asylum. Not the genocidal assaults by Mongol invaders that reoccurred over 200 yesrs; not the fact that the Turks and the Persians used Iraq as a battleground for another 200 years; not the fact that every Arab male is basically a PTSD case; not the inherent violence in the Quran.

    No, it was those dozens of insurgents the white males killed; not the tens of millions killed by the vibrant communities of color
