Jihad is an islamic term meaning “struggle” and is considered to be a religious duty of Muslims. It can be directed towards Satan, one’s own self or a visible enemy (the infidels – which would be you and me). Since warfare is not permissible under islamic law except for jihad, most military combat and any expansion or defense of the Islamic state is considered jihad.
Sura 25, verse 52 in the Qu’ran states: “Therefore, do not obey the disbelievers, and strive against them with this, a great striving.”
Jihad is encouraged by the Prophet Muhammed.
“When Prophet Muhammed was asked about the best deeds, he replied that jihad was the third best.
In the hadith it is said that when asked “O Allah’s Apostle! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” I asked, “What is next in goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” then further asked, what is next in goodness?” He replied, ‘To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.’ ” Sahih al-Bukhari 1:2:25
Most recently, Americans were the target of jihad in Fort Hood, Texas as perpetrated by Nidal Malik Hasan, a Major in the US Army who committed treason and murder in his horrific actions of November 5, 2009 that left 14 dead and 30 wounded. A military court has released today that Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder. Thirteen because one of the victims was an unborn baby and not counted towards a charge of murder.
Hasan will face a death penalty. The military has not carried out a death penalty since 1961. As well, Obama would be required to sign off on an order of execution and I personally cannot see him doing it, considering his empathy for terrorists. Obama apparently cannot form a conclusion even when faced with irrefutable evidence FROM THE TERRORIST. This is Hasan’s business card. SoA stands for Soldiers of Allah – here is more from Michelle Malkin and Pamela Geller.
We have been treated to a mini-Hasan apology storm by the liberal media. We have been told that he felt harassed and stressed out and anxious. We have been asked to FEEL SORRY FOR HIM. Reports have floated that he had filed as a conscientious objector and had serious concerns about his pending deployment overseas. The Army has confirmed that he did NOT seek that status. Some outlets have even claimed that he was so distraught that he cracked and that he is insane. His comments to fellow physicians during a Koranic presentation in 2007 paint a different picture of this Soldier of Allah: “We love death more than you love life.”
Chris Matthews, one of the blithering libiots of MSNBC, even went so far as to say that we can’t even call him the shooter until he has a trial. As well, Matthews went on to say that “That’s not a crime to call up al Qaeda, is it? Is it?” after Reuters reported that Hasan had apparently contacted them. Gee, Chris…I don’t know?
Is it a crime to call the terrorist organization that is responsible for 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, bombings of the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, the bombing of the USS Cole, and the terrorist attacks of September 11? Is it a crime to be a TERRORIST SYMPATHIZER AND REACH OUT TO OUR ENEMIES?
Lady Libertas has simply had it.
WE ARE AT WAR. And not just in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are at war on our home soil and we are at war wherever Americans are throughout the world. Our enemy believes that they have an edict from GOD to kill us. They care nothing for the laws of man. They care nothing for women or children or the elderly – WE ARE ALL THEIR ENEMIES.
Our media and indeed many in the government and on the left would like to soft pedal this. Obama and his administration would like us to refer to them as man-caused disasters. Obama is traveling the world on an Apology Tour with invitations to Terrorists to come on over and negotiate with him. Heck, not even negotiate – OBAMA WANTS TO BE BUDDIES!
They would like to make excuses for Hasan that have nothing to do with jihad or Islam or edicts from God. Hasan himself made all of those arguments moot as he yelled “Allahu Akbar” before the slaughter. God is Great. We can witness the greatness of Hasan’s god here. This is a full list and pictures of the dead, victims of Hasan’s jihad. These are our fallen.
Our President has refused to condemn this as a Terrorist Attack.
“Well, look, we — we have seen, in the past, rampages of this sort. And in a country of 300 million people, there are going to be acts of violence that are inexplicable. Even within the extraordinary military that we have — and I think everybody understands how outstanding the young men and women in uniform are under the most severe stress — there are going to be instances in which an individual cracks. I think the questions that we’re asking now and we don’t have yet complete answers to is, is this an individual who’s acting in this way or is it some larger set of actors? You know, what are the motivations? Those are all questions that I think we have to ask ourselves. Until we have these answers buttoned down, I’d rather not comment on it.”
A larger set of actors?? I know that all the world is a stage for Obama but I hardly think we are on a movie set, Mr. President. These bad guys are REAL and committed to our annihilation.
Early in Obama’s Administration, the Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano (insert derisive snort) explained her take on Terrorism in an interview: “although I did not use the word ‘terrorism,’ I referred to ‘man-caused’ disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.” Napolitano chose instead to focus on our returning troops and rightwing extremists as “terrorists” (note that we were not called man-caused disasters) rather than the very real threat of inflammatory, American-hating Muslim groups that exist within our boundaries and send money to terrorist organizations all over the world to fund jihad against our way of life.
Our Attorney General is giving a keynote speech next week to a Michigan group which includes the local branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) even though the FBI has formally severed contacts with the controversial Muslim civil rights organization. CAIR is one of the very organizations that exists within the United States and works for our destruction and the destruction of our Allies. Anti-CAIR-net has done an amazing job of tracking the associations of CAIR and outlining their agenda of the expansion of Sharia Law.
We need to wake up. We need to recognize that these threats are not in some faraway land of deserts. We cannot forget the horror of 9/11 or, now, the slaughter at Fort Hood. We cannot allow the left and the Obama Administration to marginalize the threat of jihad – this is a WAR ON AMERICA.
Arm yourselves with knowledge and passion, Patriots. Call them as you see them and CALL TERRORISTS WHAT THEY ARE…Death Dealers who want to kill us.
Lady Libertas says: NO MORE EXCUSES.
THE ONLY MAN-CAUSED DISASTER THAT LADY LIBERTAS SEES IS THE ELECTION AND SYSTEMATIC DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES BY BARACK OBAMA & HIS CRONIES.
