FBI Under Fire For Teaching the Truth

Pages: 1 2

Can “any war against non-believers” really be “‘justified’ under Muslim law”? Majid Khadduri, an Iraqi scholar of Islamic law of international renown. In his book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, which was published in 1955 and remains one of the most lucid and illuminating works on the subject, Khadduri says this about jihad:

The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world….The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. (P. 51)

Imran Ahsan Khan Nyazee, Assistant Professor on the Faculty of Shari’ah and Law of the International Islamic University in Islamabad. In his 1994 book The Methodology of Ijtihad, he quotes the twelfth century Maliki jurist Ibn Rushd: “Muslim jurists agreed that the purpose of fighting with the People of the Book…is one of two things: it is either their conversion to Islam or the payment of jizyah.” Nyazee concludes: “This leaves no doubt that the primary goal of the Muslim community, in the eyes of its jurists, is to spread the word of Allah through jihad, and the option of poll-tax [jizya] is to be exercised only after subjugation” of non-Muslims.

A Shafi’i manual of Islamic law endorsed by the most prestigious institution in Sunni Islam, Al-Azhar University in Cairo, says that the leader of the Muslims “makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax,” and cites Qur’an 9:29 in support of this idea: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o9.8)

Are there wars against unbelievers that cannot be justified by Islamic law? Certainly. But there is also a broad mandate for such wars – broad enough to have served as a justification for wars between Muslims and non-Muslims throughout history. During World War I, the crumbling Ottoman Empire even tried to shore up support for its war against the Allies by declaring it a jihad.

In the face of Ackerman’s reports, the FBI is in full retreat. It announced after an earlier report that it had banned use of my book The Truth About Muhammad, which is simply a biography of Muhammad based on the earliest Muslim sources. And this latest report quickly drove the bureau further into Lysenkoism; it quickly announced late Thursday that it was dropping the latest program that Ackerman had zeroed in on as well.

Lysenkoism was ideologically biased junk science regarding biology and agriculture that was adopted as official policy by the Soviet Union under Stalin. The real scientists who told the truth were sent to the gulag.

It is no surprise that in an official environment that refuses to speak about “Islam” and “terrorism” in the same sentence — a policy which must involve quite a lot of mental and verbal gymnastics when jihad terrorists start quoting Qur’an and other Islamic sources — that the truth about Islam would come under fire whenever it appears as part of counterterrorism studies. It is no surprise that in an official environment that thinks that the Muslim Brotherhood is “largely secular” and that jihad is a wholly positive interior spiritual struggle would get nervous at revelations that somewhere the truth about Islam and jihad was getting through.

As Lysenkoism grows more entrenched and the FBI’s heads planted more firmly in the sand, Spencer Ackerman’s responsibility for the next jihad attack in the U.S. grows apace.

    The American left never ceases to amaze me. Just cry discrimination and you’ve successfully thwarted anti-terrorist efforts. When Christians complain they are ignored. When muslims howl it’s like the world is ending.

    • guest

      Christians dont kill, mutilate and blow up your family while sucking up welfare. Thats why we listen when they howl over the tiniest detail of how we are failing, these are freeloading lawsuits waiting for a place to happen.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Where are the Republican Presidential candidates and the members of Congress who are supposed to be protecting us? Why aren't they speaking out against this insanity? Indeed, why aren't the Republican Presidential candidates not turning this into a major issue to differentiate themselves from Obama and the Dhimmicrats?

    • curmudgeon

      the ideal of the republican party is to be just a little bit less destructive to america than the democratic party. if the democratic party wants to import 20 million raging, foaming at the mouth, anti american muslims and put them on welfare to breed into a majority and genocide the rest of us, then the republicans are all in favor of 19 million invaders. you can never expect good of republicans, but you can be sure of worse from the democrats.

    • Zam

      You see ObamaYoMama, in the United States, your basic muslim qualifies as a minority. Consequently, as such, government and society must be "sensitive-to-their-needs". Even if such muslims are wearing head scarves or towels and/or are terrorists, government and society must still roll out the red carpet and give them anything and everything they want simply because they are a minority. Anything less, would OFFEND the muslims. And when muslims become OFFENDED, they get angry and heads must roll (no pun intended). On top of that, all the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons and Jeremiah Wrights would be coming out of the woodwork and be screaming RACISM with the help of the "government-media complex". Everybody but everybody knows, when the big "R" word surfaces, everybody but everybody runs for cover. In the end, the muslims get to continue doing what they do best–wearing head scarves and towels and going to their friendly neighborhood mosques and planning terrorism on the United States simply because they are a minority and cannot be OFFENDED in any way, shape, or form.

    • Zam

      I know what you are thinking ObamaYoMoma–you are thinking "What a scam". And you are right about that. Where do you think the "Islamophobia Scam" came from? Now we can connect the dots. Now we know beyond a shadow of a doubt the kind of evil that are ARABS.

          Flipper is very good at not answering comments but instead retorting with irrelevant facts and innuendo. One wonders if people like this receive training somewhere, or if these are universal tactics exhibited by anyone with sufficiently strong attitudes.

          • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

            I thought I answered this. As of 2011 there is mutual distrust between the FBI and Israel. The FBI wiretaps the Israeli embassy and catches an agent passing classified information to the Tikkun Olam blog. Israel is engaged in a constant campaign to advertise itself and manage the global perception of that country as good. It does not look good when the FBI catches yet another Israeli spy passing our classified information. The FBI is also trying to harmonize our laws against racial profiling with our laws against terrorism. These do not coincide with the Hasbara movement, which wants maximum demonization of all Muslims and would be satisfied with entice cleansing in violation of our laws. As revenge, Hasbara writers are vilifying the FBI.

          I can’t quite tell who you are talking about, but I do know that the contention of the authors found here is that molehills can not be ignored at any cost, for they are all really mountains. Thus is of course the precise reason why small acts of terrorism ultimately succeed in inspiring terror. Terrorism is media phenomenon.

    "While certainly not all devout Muslims are terrorists, virtually all Islamic terrorists are devout Muslims."
    To say such is Islamophobic?
    When the new regime comes into office in 2012 we can begin to let TRUTH be the determining factor again and not be sanctioned by the P.C. test. Either a clean sweep in the Senate and change in the W.H. or get ready to have your tongue cut out (since you won't be able to speak the truth). It must be one or the other.

      "While certainly not all devout Muslims are terrorists, virtually all Islamic terrorists are devout Muslims."

      No sir no most definitely not. It sounds more like a case of Psychophobic.

      • StephenD

        Thanks for making the distinction. You are correct. As I am NOT ISlamophobic…I don't fear Islam I LOATHE Islam. But I am afraid of Psychos. So, yes, to fear the actions of psychotics is reasonable. You may label me as such…a Psychophobic. Yep, I'll wear that label right next to IslamoLoather. It may be difficult to distinguish between the two as their actions are sometimes one and the same.

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    islam strives for world domination.

    The quran commands muslims to exercise jihad.

    The quern commands muslims to establish shariah law.

    The quern commands muslims to impose islam on the entire world.

    islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    islam IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is arabic for battle.

    islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

  • mrbean

    The jihadists are motivated by the core principles of Islam with the goal of converting, killing, or subjugating all non-Muslims. Unfortunately, too many non-Muslims have reverted to a pre-9/11 mentality and do not see the necessity of an offensive war in Iraq or Afghanistan, or of a defensive war at home. Non-Muslims are going to have to decide to fight for their cultures, freedoms, and values or they are going to lose them. It is our killer instincts which must be harnessed if we expect to survive in a war with the Jihadists. Our weapons are only tools. It is a hard heart that kills. If our killer instincts are not clean and strong we will hesitate at the moment of truth. We will not kill. We will become dead Americans. And then wewill be in a world of trouble. Because there are a billion Muslims and on a few of us who will fight! Do you understand?

    And may I ask, why has the FBI withdrawn this teaching material about the

    Who has been instrumental in this decision:
    Is it the article of this biased sold out "journalist" of this cesspool known as the
    NEW YORK TIMES , or is it rather OBAMA, his sidekick HOLDER doing or both
    of them ????

    And as somebody above pointed out, what are the parasites we sent to
    Congress doing about ???
    I don't expect a damned thing from the DEMOCRAPS in this respect.
    After all, it is OK for them to have a "sui generis "Christian" in the White House
    but what about the Republicans and TEA PARTY people we sent there ???
    Would it be that all of them, like the new Massachussets senator, took a ride
    on AIR FORCE ONE with OBAMA ????
    Makes you wonder, doesn't it ??
    By the way, were "moderate" Muslims in the eyes of JOY BEHAR and WHOOPI

    It’s truly a sad day when the truth is considered slander or “hate speech”, by the way, all who attack this article, “hate speech” is what they disguised blaspheme laws in Europe. A few prominent speakers have been put on trial for it. They came here to speak to some of the universities, wouldn’t you know, some of the left or socialist leaning ones didn’t want to hear it. Geert Wilder was greeted with boos. Now, this man was being put on trial for free speech, for speaking out against this religion that the left and liberals seem to have such an affection for, they were going to put him in prison. No one wanted to hear it. So you know what that tells me, we are not only at war with Islamic extremists but a war against the mindless slugs that boo this man. If they had it their way, all who made comments supporting this article to include the author would be in prison, right now, as we speak to each other. We are at war and we better win this one decisively or we are going to be condemned to be a dying empire like so many others that rotted away because of stupidity.

    It's sad to see the billions in Saudi propaganda having its effect in the West, particularly with the PC media, the universities, and the White House. Sure, Muslims didn't do 9/11, Islam isn't responsible for any terrorism, it's the religion of peace, Israel is illegitimate, it's not terrorism to exterminate it, blah blah. They're winning all the early rounds, following their historical pattern in country after country that underestimated them and are now part of the so-called Muslim World.

    The truth is that the U.S. is the last best hope of humanity, and was only possible because it was incubated on a world island that enjoyed being free of Islam. Israel is the only friend we've got in the Middle East, and we must staunchly support it no matter how many other countries turn against it. They're our canary in the mine. As Islam makes its move on the U.S., we must all stand up to it firmly and never let it take an inch. Their Allah is a dead god, and their Quran is a dead book, and the future belongs to us, not them.

    I wrote a comment on Ackerman's latest article that was featured on Wired, and he wouldn't post it. I'm guessing it was because I refuted his information on Muslim terrorism with real, actual facts, along with the sources on where I obtained my info. If he's going to be self righteous and write such a misinformed piece of apologist rhetoric, he should at least be able to handle a simple debate on one of his articles.

  • Ashburn Searcy, M.D.

    Mr. Ackerman, despite the appearance of scholarship, appears to either be ignorant of or to choose to ignore a vast body of information regarding Islam's indispensable contributions to the progress of human civilization, both material and spiritual. That misinterpretation of the Koran, total distortion of its teachings, and quotation of its verses and of sayings of Mohammed completely out of context have resulted in much of today's world-wide cruelty and terrorism attests to the depths of human depravity and perversity in the name of religion, not to the truth or untruth of the religion itself. I agree with Jim (see page one of comments): for the sake of justice, let such views be published, so that dispassionate discourse can reveal the truth.

  • Ashburn Searcy, M.D.

    In a recent reply I mistakenly confused the names of Spencer Ackerman and Robert Spencer, for which I apologize. Mr. Spencer has in fact published his views, which are available for public scrutiny. I do not apologize, however, for strongly disagreeing with his conclusions regarding Islam. A denial of the divine origin of Islam and of the incalculable benefits to mankind attributable to its teachings is tantamount to denying the divine origin and civilizing influence of all the world's great religions. The truth is religion, like everything else in life, is cyclic and progressive. This is not a plea for sameness, but for unity in diversity. Nor does it fail to acknowledge, in this troubled world suffering the severe birth pains of leaving behind outmoded ideas and outworn institutions to enter a new age, the absolute necessity of maintaining order, of obedience to law, of vigilant protection from those, of any religion or no religion, who are bent on domination and will stop at nothing to achieve it. Mankind has too great a future to allow it to fall into the hands of blind, self-centered fanaticism or of ignorant denial of the benefits of and the need for true religion.
