"To strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies"
Here's what race baiting leads to. The blood of these police officers is on the hands of Bill de Blasio. It's on the hands of Obama. It's on Al Sharpton's hands (but his hands are covered in blood from Crown Heights and Freddy's) and they're on the hands of a media that helped whip up the racist rants.
Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley announced on Instagram, They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs. And murdered two police officers.
He apparently spoke Arabic and his Facebook page from March 17 included this screenshot of the Koran.
The verses involve Jihad.
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
Zale Thompson, the last racist attacker who targeted cops, had also been a Muslim and had promoted Jihad.
