“War is deceit.” —Muhammad [as reported by Abu Huraira in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Hadith 267(as well as in Hadith 268) and Jabir bin Abdullah in Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Hadith 269]
The Problem with the Nice Muslims We Know
Many have met nice people in their neighborhoods or at work who call themselves Muslims. The problem is that it is hard to know what the word Muslim means to these people. Some people identify as being Muslim, even if they know little or nothing about Islam, because they have Muslim relatives. Other, truly doctrinaire, Muslims strongly believe in the teachings of Muhammad, who emphasized jihad (holy war) to bring the Sharia (Islamic Law) to every soul on earth. Sharia Law forces the submission of Kafirs (non-Muslims) by murder, rape, torture, beating, degradation, and humiliation—all things that were modeled by Muhammad during his lifetime. Needless to say, Muhammad did not model the Golden Rule towards Kafirs (non-Muslims); atheists, agnostics, and adherents of all other faiths are, in fact, treated with immense cruelty under the savagely violent system of apartheid which is the Sharia.
Since Muslims are commanded to participate in the jihad (holy war against the Kafir) wherever they can (Koran 4:89), to never take Kafirs for friends (Koran 3:28), and to deceive Kafirs as well (Bukhari 4, 52, 267-269), a doctrinaire Muslim will lie to a Kafir about the kind of Muslim he is. This brings up a practical problem in dealing with Muslims: How can we tell how strongly a Muslim really identifies with Islam? And, when faced with a growing Muslim community, how do we know that increasing pressure by jihadists to conform to the Sunnah (the Traditions of Muhammad) will not worsen the behaviors of those Muslims previously deemed harmless to Kafirs? The only guarantee against a European-style increase in Muslim violence against Kafirs is to stop the American Hijra (immigration in the cause of Allah) in its tracks.
Khizr Khan, a man trotted out by the Democrats at their 2016 convention as an example of a “devout Muslim,” was criticized by Trump for not allowing his wife to speak: “If you look at his wife,” perceived Trump, “she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably . . . wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”
Trump is simply citing the Sharia—something the Khans must follow, if they really are the devout Muslims they say they are—so what is the problem, then, with what Trump is saying? According to the Sharia, a woman’s words have little legal weight. Even if a husband does not verbally forbid her to say anything, she knows that speaking publicly is fraught with risk; one unfortunate word choice could result in a severe beating, if her husband deems such discipline necessary, according to the Sharia—the barbaric apartheid system Muslims prefer to the American culture of freedom, since freedom necessarily allows criticism of Islam.
After Trump spoke, the silent wife finally made a comment—probably one whose words were pre-approved by her husband—saying she was only silent due to her grief over the loss of her son. This was probably an act of taqiyya—which is sacred deception of Kafirs [non-Muslims], per Islam’s prescription to lie to Kafirs, in order to advance the jihad and bring the Sharia. (The Khans’ son died in 2004 of a car bomb explosion in Iraq.)
What Sharia Law Says about Permissible Lying
Here is what the Sharia says about what constitutes permissible lying, according to Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri’s Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law (section r8.2): “I did not hear him [Muhammad] permit untruth in anything people say, except for three things: war, settling disagreements, and a man talking with his wife or she with him (A: in smoothing over differences).” Jihad, or holy war, is considered to be an obligation in which each and every Muslim must participate—either by head or by tongue (in the greater jihad), or by hands (in the lesser jihad)—to spread Islam to all places. In the Sharia, Islam is never discussed as a form of “inner struggle.” In the Sharia, jihad is only discussed as “war against non-Muslims.” Lying is, of course, permitted whenever it serves the jihad.
What Islamic Law Says about Jihad
Here is what the Sharia says about jihad, in Reliance of the Traveller (section o9.0): “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad [the culture war against Kafir civilization], it is spiritual warfare against the lower self, which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad, ‘We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad [which is fought and won by head and tongue].’
“The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus is such Koranic verses as: (1) ‘Fighting [against the Kafirs] is prescribed for you’ (Koran 2:216); (2) ‘Slay them [Kafirs] wherever you find them’ (Koran 4:89); (3) ‘Fight the idolaters [Kafirs] utterly’ (Koran 9:36); and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
“‘I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah’; and the hadith reported by Muslim, ‘To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.’”
The Obligation of Every Muslim to Fight Kafirs
There is an entire section (o9.1) in the Reliance of the Traveller on the “obligatory character of jihad.” Suffice it to say that there are several ways outlined in which one might participate in jihad, even if one is unable to perform physical duties of a “soldier in jihad.” Of major concern to Kafirs is section o9.1, which says that every Muslim must fight against the culture of the Kafir in any way possible or be guilty of sin.
If Khizr Khan and his wife are not fighting the jihad against America—a nation of Kafirs—then they are sinning and are not being good Muslims. Since the Khans claim to be good Muslims, this means they must indeed be fighting against Americans in word and deed. It is this “greater jihad” that they are fighting which, in the end, is much more deadly than the “lesser jihad,” since it is going to be presidential elections and public policies that impact the lives of Americans much more dramatically than any number of slayings that jihad by the sword can ultimately bring.
So, the Khans must be lying. If they are not, then they are not acting as good Muslims and should not be touted as such, if the Democratic National Convention were being honest at all. But that is the point, is it not? The Democrats are not being honest in their representation of what Islam is or what good Muslims are actually supposed to be doing, in order to be considered “good Muslims.”
The Destruction of the American Republic
Scripturally speaking, good Muslims do everything they can—under the banner of jihad—to harm Kafirs and to bring the institution of Sharia Law to every corner of the globe. The fabrication that “Islam is a religion of peace,” which has been perpetrated by the political elites in both parties—starting with Bush and carrying through to Obama and Clinton—is a dangerous fiction being taught in American universities bribed by Muslim oil money in the form of endowments. Students educated in these institutions have, generally, been taught to trust “subject-matter experts,” rather than read Islamic texts for themselves. Thus, many politicians, clergy, journalists, and educators have been indoctrinated into believing Islam is a harmless ideology, due to misplaced trust in the falsehoods taught by Islamic apologists. Because of this, the seeds of America’s destruction have been sown.
Khizr Khan, it turns out, has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Inspired by Said Ramadan—a major Brotherhood figure and grandson of founder Hassan al-Banna—Khan advocates pure, unadulterated Sharia and was co-founder of the Journal of Contemporary Issues in Muslim [Sharia] Law.
