DEFENDING THE WESTHamas: Killing Jews is worship of Allah
Exclusive: Pamela Geller on latest anti-Semitic statement: 'This is Quranic Islam' WND, November 26, 2012
Their words, not mine.
Israel’s latest defensive action in Gaza has led to an ugly new outpouring of Jew-hatred across the globe. So many devout Muslims calling for jihad in the cause of Islam, so few “moderates” denouncing the devout. So many “misunderstanders” of Islam, so few “moderates” speaking out against the millions of “misunderstanders.”
It is not surprising – because Jew hatred is a religious mandate under Islam.
During Operation Pillar of Defense, Hamas broadcast a video on its official Al-Aqsa TV station saying, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.”
IPT News reported Monday that “on Wednesday Nov. 21st Al-Awda The Palestine Right to Return Coalition’s Cleveland, Ohio, chapter organized a rally in downtown Cleveland calling for the destruction of Israel.” The rally was ugly, featuring chants such as “From the river to the sea Palestine will be free” and “Israel is a terrorist state.”
The bloodthirsty cries of these savages are not surprising – that many of the groups involved are in tight with the White House and the DoJ is deeply, deeply troubling. It bodes most ill. You’ll note the malevolent participation of the jihad lawyer Lamis Deek, well-known to readers of my website AtlasShrugs.com as the Muslim Brotherhood lawyer for the Sheepshead Bay mega mosque.
And in Vienna, Muslim protesters openly and repeatedly called for “death to the Jews.” They were following in the footsteps of their paternal predecessors in Nazi Germany. Austria was Hitler’s birthplace, and while the genocidal calls are now coming from Muslims, the leftist protesters marching with the Muslims didn’t utter a word of complaint as the Muslims called for the killing of Jews.
All this is in line with the jihad terror group Hamas’ openly genocidal agenda.
This is not “extremism” or “hijacking of Islam.” This is Quranic Islam. Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Quran. The Quran says: “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews …” (5:82). It claims that the Jews killed their prophets (2:61; 2:87; 2:91; 3:21; 3:112; 3:181; 3:183; 4:155; 5:70), and boast “we killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary” (4:157). It says Jews are under Allah’s curse (9:30).
Islamic scholar Robert Spencer says: “The Quran puts forward a clear, consistent image of the Jews: they are scheming, treacherous liars and the most dangerous enemies of the Muslims. This theological tenet provides a basis for Islam’s deeply-rooted anti-Semitism. Regardless of the actions of Jewish individuals today, and regardless of what policies the state of Israel follows, the Quran justifies an unrelenting form of anti-Semitism that will be extremely difficult to root out from the Muslim world.”
Saudi Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Fahd, who is in prison for supporting the jihad bombings in Riyadh in 2003, recently said: “There is no doubt that the greatest enemies of Islam and the Muslims in the present age are the Jews. Had we wanted to list their crimes against Islam and the Muslims in the later periods [of Muslim history], the list would have been very long. … Therefore, [waging] jihad against the cursed Jews, and pursuing and fighting them wherever they are found, is one of the most important duties and greatest virtues – for they have corrupted countries, killed many Muslims and fought the Muslims everywhere. They are undoubtedly the leaders of the infidels in this age, and nobody can compete with them [for this title]. Allah said: ‘Fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, no oaths are [sacred] to them. [Quran 9:12].’ If I had ten arrows, I would have shot all of them at [the Jews], not at anyone else. By Allah, had I been able to carry out a martyrdom attack against them, I would not have hesitated for a moment.”
It’s Islam. It has always been Islam. It is the West that refuses the truth. Muslim Brotherhood groups like Hamas have made no secret as to their motive and mission.
