By now most of you would have heard about the latest Islamic attack on non-Muslims, this time in the UK. A British military man in southeast London was repeatedly stabbed to death, along with an attempt to behead him. The two Muslim killers then attacked police with guns, knives and meat cleavers.
One news item puts it this way: “Clutching a bloodied meat cleaver after executing a soldier on a crowded street, he delivers a chilling message of hate. ‘You people will never be safe,’ he declares in a clear south London accent. ‘An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’
“In broad daylight, he and an accomplice had just repeatedly stabbed and tried to behead an off-duty soldier in front of dozens of passers-by. Throughout the frenzied attack they shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’ – then demanded horrified witnesses film them as they ranted over the crumpled body. The two black men in their 20s, waited calmly for armed police to arrive before charging at officers brandishing a rusty revolver, knives and meat cleavers.
“Before police arrived one of the killers was filmed giving his warped justification for the sickening attack: ‘We swear by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reasons we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. You people will never be safe. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. This British soldier is an eye for an eye a tooth for tooth. We apologise that women had to see this today but in our lands our women have to see the same.’
“In footage screened by ITV News, he added: ‘You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is going to get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? You think your politicians are going to die? No, it’s going to be the average guy like you – and your children’.”
Shocking, outrageous, inexcusable and reprehensible. But what is perhaps even more shocking is how already the dhimmi spin-machine is moving into action. We will be hearing ad nauseum that these two are an aberration, that this is an isolated incident, and that this is not really true Islam.
The Western apologists for Islam – of which there are far too many, even in high places – will do their best to water down this episode, and claim it is not reflective of Islam. But they happen to be 100 per cent wrong, sadly. This attack is fully reflective of real Islam.
Indeed, these two Muslims were living out their faith to the letter. They took the example of Muhammad quite seriously. They took the teachings of the Koran quite seriously. They took the instructions of the hadith quite seriously.
For 1400 years this has been standard Islamic behaviour. And as we know, the only guarantee a Muslim has of making it into Paradise is if he dies for the faith, taking the infidels along with him. So these men not only were most faithful to their own religion, they were looking forward to their host of dark-eyed virgins on the other end.
They will, of course, be greatly surprised at where their real end lies. But what we must not do now is start making excuses for Islam, apologising for this religion, and seeking to be useful dupes for this bloody political ideology. That is exactly what they want us to do.
They want us to defend them, be useful idiots for them, be subservient to them, and lay down our resolve to maintain freedom and democracy. They want us to be fully submissive dhimmies in other words. And recall that the word Islam means submission. A true Muslim wants everyone to submit to Allah, to come under sharia law, and be part of a universal caliphate.
In Islam there are only three options for the infidel: convert, become a second-class citizen (a dhimmi), or die. There are no other options. A real follower of Muhammad knows this and practices this. Thus what we saw on the streets of Woolwich today is Islam in action. It is Islam according to the book.
Islam expert Mark Durie has just written on this and is worth quoting at length. He says: “The killer captured on video was referencing passages from Islamic sacred texts. ‘We must fight them as they fight us’ is a phrase found repeatedly in the Koran. He specifically mentions Sura at-Tauba (chapter 9, i.e. verse 36) and ‘many, many’ other verses from the Koran, namely:
“-‘fight the polytheists all together as they fight you all together’ (Sura 9:36)
-‘fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you … And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for fitnah (oppression, persecution) is worse than slaughter; … if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith’ (Sura 2:190-9)
-‘Permission to fight (against disbelievers) is given to those (believers) who are fought against, because they have been wronged and surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory’ (Sura 22:39)
“The Arabic word for ‘fight’ used in the Koran in these passages is q?til? which literally means fighting to kill. The reference ‘an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth’ is also from the Koran (although ultimately borrowed from several passages in the Mosaic law): ‘And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear, and the tooth for the tooth, and for wounds retaliation’ (Sura 5:54).
“The Muslim killers here are invoking a religious ruling that it is permissible to fight and kill people who wage war against Muslims. As Bin Ladin put it in his letter to the American people: ‘It is commanded by our religion and intellect that the oppressed have a right to return the aggression. Do not await anything from us but Jihad, resistance and revenge.’
“The belief which seems to underlie the Woolwich attack is that because the British government is fighting a war against Muslims in Muslim lands, it is therefore legitimate for Muslims to wage jihad against the British. British people, who voted the government into power, are also considered to be personally culpable, which is why they ‘will never be safe’ and are told to ‘remove your government’.
“The killer’s language is strikingly reminiscent of Bin Ladin’s November 2002 letter to the American people, in which he not only spoke of ‘removal’ of governments (in Muslim lands), but also explained that it was legitimate to attack American civilians because they are the ones who voted their government into power.”
He concludes, “This slaughter on the streets of Woolwich has all the hallmarks of a theologically motivated attack, and keys to understand it can be found in the Qur’an and the teachings of Muhammad. Whether the views adopted by the killers are ‘legitimate’ interpretations of the Koran and Muhammad’s teachings may be disputed. What cannot be disputed is the source where they found their inspiration.”
Yes, this is killing according to the book. This is Islamic faith in action. Until we wake up to the reality of what the political ideology of Islam is really all about, we will simply find more Western streets covered in the blood of the “infidels”.
