How Circumstance Dictates Islamic Behavior

Pages: 1 2

Burhami exposes much here, beginning with the Koran verse he quotes: when weak, Muslims are to “refrain from action”—but “pay your zakat,” which, among other things, funds the jihad.  Also, as Muhammad made peace with the Jews of Medina, without making them submit to jizya (tribute to be paid “while utterly subdued”), so too are Palestinians allowed to make temporary peace with Israel.  In both cases, circumstance—namely, Muslim weakness—justify it.  But, when capability allows, Koran 9:29—which calls for jizya and subjugation, and which Burhami quotes as having abrogated the other peaceful verses—takes over.

Burhami’s conclusion:

Yes we can deal with those Christians [Egypt’s Copts] as the Jews were dealt with in Medina; it is an option. The Prophet made the Hudaybiya Reconciliation with the infidels and held a truce for ten years; that is also an option…. So, it is legitimate to choose from examples set by the Prophet, depending on what suits the situation of Muslims now.

In short, Muslims may be tolerant of Egypt’s Copts now, and not collect jizya and place them in dhimmitude, until they are more capable—just like Palestinians may make peace with Israel now, till they are more capable of waging an offensive.  Indeed, Dr. Mohamed Saad Katatni—the secretary general of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, which won 40% of the votes—reportedly said that Copts would not pay jizya now, implying that the idea of collecting tribute from subdued “dhimmi” Copts is very much alive among the Brotherhood, only dormant till a more opportune moment.

One may argue that Sheikh Yassir al-Burhami—“one man,” a “radical”—is not representative of “true Islam.”  The problem, however, is that all his arguments have been made countless times by countless Muslims, including the most authoritative, throughout the ages.  Even the late Yasser Arafatevoked Hudaybiya as representative of “peace” with Israel.

And yet, despite all this—despite the fact that this video is a drop in the bucket of evidence—here is the West, making the way clear for people like Burhami to power in the name of “democracy,” regardless that pacts, smiles, and handshakes over cups of coffee exist solely when circumstance, in this case, Muslim weakness, dictates.

    You can tell he's a pious muslim, who only wants the best for the ummah, by the size of his allah bump. He's got a good one!!! Allah protects muslims from brain damage from smacking their heads on the ground by not putting any brain matter in their heads. It's more of a small nerve cluster that dictates the muslims behavior. The dinosaurs, from a brain size / intelligence perspective were the closest to muslim "brains" in today's moon god worshippers.

    Hey look, this jihadi comes with a bullseye.

    We should use the muslim methods against them. Lie to them, bargain with them until you see a weakness and then destroy them. Tell them you love them until they lower their defenses them destroy them. If lies and deceit and cheating and treachery are acceptable for muslims to perpetrate against their enemies (which is just about everyone, by the way) then they can't be to upset when their enemies use the same policies against them.

      But of course they will be upset. That it is their very nature, to get upset from all things not muslim or perceived as things against 'umma'. The point is, whe should seek to upset them and take pleasure from it. To make the umma upset should be a moral value.

    I bet squirrels could nest in his beard.

    So want is the point in negotiating with jihadis? If we infidels were smart, we would negotiate with the jihad, sign a treaty and then attack with everything we have.

    According to the US government, the Republican Party, the Dhimmicrat Party, and the news media, Islam is a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, and the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims in the world are moderate and peace loving Muslims.

    Here's the reality, per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, every Muslim on earth is obligated to fight jihad in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme. Hence, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. A tiny minority of them are violent jihadists, while the vast overwhelming majority of them are non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the dictates of MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX ISLAM must be executed.

    Indeed, there is quite a gap between what our US government, the Republican Party, the Dhimmicrat Party, and the news media all believe and reality.

    A couple of years back I visited a monestary atop a mountain in Chios, a Greek island close to Turkey. They had a glass-fronted bookshelf full of skulls. There was a hand-lettered sign which said Chios had 188,000 people when invaded by Ottomans in the early 1820's. Only 1,800 were left afterwards. Muslims erase their bloody history this way and can wail about the Crusades… because they lived to tell it .
    On Wikipedia it says they were invaded by an army from another Greek island! After WW1 the Turks were thrown out and Greeks repopulated Chios.
    Mohammed established polygamy so Islam would always have an army of unmarried invaders seeking wives. When weak like they are now, they slaughter each other.
