Jihad is all about priorities.
Sure the Koran says that Allah sent Mo to wage war and be “victorious over all religions, even though the infidels may resist.” (Koran 61:9) But does killing of Muslims from other sects come before killing Jews and Christians?
With the Middle East exploding in a Muslim civil war, Jihadi Triage is becoming a serious issue. Who do you kill first? Whom do you kill second? What’s that suicide bomber doing on third? What do you mean you kill Houthi first? I asked you, who do you kill first?
In Yemen, Sheik Huthi says the Houthis have to be killed before the Jews. The Houthis, a Shiite sect/clan/militia (a common combination in the Muslim region where everything is tribal, theocratic and terrorist at the same time) probably feel the same way about Huthi. But they may want to kill the Jews first.
Yemen’s Sheikh Abd Al-Azim Al-Huthi has declared that the jihad against the “Houthi infidels”, the Shiite sect in Yemen that has been waging a civil war against the government over the past decade, “is better than the jihad against the Jews.” because these Shiite rebels “are enemies of Allah and His Messenger”
“It does not make sense to fight the Jews as long as the Houthi group exists,” said Sheikh Huthi.
Don’t worry – the Houthis won’t become Judeophiles any time soon. Their logo says “Allah is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Damn the Jews, Power to Islam.”
Just in case “Death to Israel” was considered too vague, they threw a “Damn the Jews” there.
There are about 90 Jews left in Yemen living behind barbed wire. From a formerly huge community. So there aren’t that many of them left to damn. But apparently damning Jews comes before power to Islam.
Do the Houthi think that Huthi has to be killed before they kill the Jews? Based on their motto, they probably support killing Americans first. I don’t know if that makes them “moderate” or “extremist.”
In any case, the Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus and Atheists still make it into the Top 10 People to Jihad. Meanwhile Yemeni Sunnis and Shiites will go on killing each other. Except for those Houthi Shiites and Yemeni Sunnis who have traveled to Syria to kill each other there.
If it wasn’t for Israel… there would be peace in the Middle East.
