President Obama’s angry outburst to ISIS terrorist’s June 12th shooting of more than100 people at a nightclub in Orlando, FL, murdering 49 and wounding 53, was not aimed at the radical Islamic ideology that motivated the killer.
Obama was livid because he was pushed to stray from what CNN described his usual “cerebral reaction” to Islamic terrorism, into uttering the words “radical Islam.” But he steered clear of talking about it, never mind denouncing it. Instead, he claimed the attack was the Islamist terrorist’s reaction to those who warn against the radical Islamic threats. He went on call stricter gun controls.
According to Obama, who for once did not sing the praises of “The Religion of Peace,” the motivation that led to Orlando attack are irrelevant because “This was an attack on the LGBT community.” While ISIS claimed credit for the attack, Obama deployed his Attorney General Loretta Lynch to lie to deceive the American public. Eager to further his false message she even authorized the scrubbing of the 911 transcript of the killer’s pledge to Islam and ISIS.
On June 8th, in Tel Aviv, Israel, two Hamas-affiliated Palestinians terrorists sprayed with bullets diners at the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv, killing four and wounding sixteen. On the following day, Tel Aviv’s Mayor Ron Huldai while visiting Sarona, “explained that Israel was to blame for the Sarona attack. He went on to imply the murderers were “peace activists,” reacting to Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Not surprisingly, the Palestinian Al-Jazeera TV‘s news anchor who Twitted, “The Ramadan operation is the best answer to stories about ‘peace process, ” agreed with Huldai.
On June 13, the Philippines government confirmed that Robert Hall, a Canadian citizen was beheaded by the ISIS-affiliated Abu Sayyaf terrorist group who held him hostage since September 2015. Canada’s prime minister’s Justin Trudeau’s reaction was posted on his Facebook page. “Canada holds the terrorist group who took him hostage fully responsible for this cold-blooded and senseless murder,” he said. Trudeau avoided mentioning the radical Islamic ideology espoused by Abu- Sayyaf, its affiliation with the Islamic State (a.k.a. IS, ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, Caliphate) and previously with al Qaeda.
The call for jihad on the West has gained many followers in the Islamic world after Qaeda’s successful attacks on America, in September 2001. Choosing to ignore this, make Obama, Trudeau, and other Left oriented, politically correct politicians leaders and media guilty of deliberate deception.
Indeed, after Abu Sayyaf had beheaded the Canadian, Jonathan D. Halevi, in CIJNews pointed out, “Hadith justifying jihad against infidels recited before the beheading of the Canadian hostage.”
Like Hamas and ISIS, Abu Sayyaf operatives demonstrated in both beheadings their adherence to the teachings of Islam in the jihad, or holy war, against the infidels.
Seconds before the Canadian hostage Robert Hall was beheaded, (the video click here – Graphic content) one of Abu Sayyaf operatives recited the following hadith (narration attributed to Mohammad) justifying the killing of infidels by the Muslim believers:
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “I have been commanded to fight against the people till they testify La ilaha illAllah (There is no true god except Allah) and that Muhammad (ﷺ) is His slave and Messenger, and to establish As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) [prayer], and to pay Zakat [charity]; and if they do this, then their blood and property are secured except by the rights of Islam, and their accountability is left to Allah.”
This hadith is mentioned in the book The Gardens of the Righteous (Arabic: Riyadh as-Salihin), a compilation of verses from the Qur’an and hadith by Al-Nawawi. It contains a total of 1905 hadith divided across 372 chapters, many of which are introduced by verses of the Quran.
A copy of the book accompanied by modern commentary to the verses from the Qur’an and hadith was posted on the official site of ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Canada, the biggest Islamic organization in Canada.
The following is the interpretation of the hadith as appears in ICNA Canada’s online syllabus:
[Hadith] 1209. Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “I have been commanded to fight people till they testify `La ilaha illallah’ (there is no true god except Allah) that Muhammad (PBUH) is his slave and Messenger, and they establish Salat, and pay Zakat; and if they do this, their blood (life) and property are secured except when justified by law, and it is for Allah to call them to account.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Commentary: “Except when justified by law” means that after the acceptance of Islam, if someone commits a crime which is punishable by Hadd this will be certainly imposed on him, or her, i.e., cutting of hand in case of theft, one hundred stripes or stoning to death in case of fornication, capital punishment in retaliation for murdering an innocent person. In this Hadith the words “it is for Allah to call them to account” means that if they are not sincere in the acceptance of Islam and would put up an appearance of Islam like hypocrites, or would commit a crime which is liable for Hadd but is somehow not detected by the Islamic court or authorities concerned, they will be taken to account for it by Allah, that is Allah will decide about them on the Day of Judgement. It is evident from this Hadith that so long as Kufr [heresy] is present in this world, it is necessary to wage Jihad against it to finish it off, and so long as all the disbelievers do not openly accept Islam and adopt the Islamic way of life, Muslims are duty- bound to make Jihad against them.
After Robert Hall beheading had been completed, Abu Sayyaf operatives chanted several times “Allah Akbar” in Arabic, meaning Allah (the name of God in Islam) is the greatest. Behind them the black flag of ISIS is seen with the following caption: “There is no God but Allah, Allah, Messenger, Mohammad.”
During the beheading of another Canadian hostage, John Riddle on April 25, 2016 (this beheading here – Graphic content), the terrorists raised the index finger in a gesture that symbolizes their belief in the oneness of Allah, and chanted 14 times “Allah Akbar” in Arabic, meaning Allah (the name of God in Islam) is the greatest.”
How many “infidels” will have to be murdered by the Islamists, to stop the contagious “jihad-denial” disease from spreading? What will it take for Obama and his followers to condemn the jihadist ideology behind that political religion of Islam?
