Qaradawi Calls Muslims to Arms Against Israel and the Jews

The Muslim Brotherhood’s leading global voice, Sheik Yusuf Qaradawi, called on Muslims Thursday to fight “the greatest battle of liberation” against Israel and the Jews.

In an Arabic message posted on his website and translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Qaradawi called on Muslims to rise up and defend Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque – Islam’s third holiest shrine – against Israel. His comments come amid heightened tension between Israel and the Palestinians.

Israel closed the Temple Mount, where the mosque is located, to all worshippers Oct. 30 following an assassination attempt against an Israeli activist. Jewish radicals have recently demanded the right to pray in the Al-Aqsa mosque, built on the holiest site to Jews, something Israel has forbidden them to do. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas denounced the closure, calling it a “declaration of war.” Israelreopened the site Oct. 31 amid heavy security. Tensions remain high, and incitement to violence has increased.

Qaradawi’s article protests against Israel’s planned archaeological tunnels under the Temple Mount and what he calls “attempts to Judaize the city of Jerusalem.” He warns of attacks against Muslim and Christian holy sites.

“What is happening to Al-Aqsa at this time is a major disaster,” Qaradawi wrote. “The [nation] of the Arabs and the [nation] of the Muslims may not keep silent about it.

“For the sake of Al-Aqsa mosque, blood will flow, and Muslims will expend lives and money, and sons.”

His diatribe also calls on Muslim clerics to urge followers to defend Al-Aqsa, and for Muslim leaders and rulers to rally to the cause.

Qaradawi cited an infamous, apocalyptic hadith frequently invoked by Islamists telling Muslims to kill Jews.

“The Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) has informed us, when he said: “The Hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, with Muslims fighting them until the Jew hides behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees saying: ‘Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah, this Jew behind me, come kill him.'”

He took a further step on Twitter on Thursday, saying: “All the [Muslim nation] is required to wage Jihad in the Way of God, as this is a command upon all the [Muslim nation] to their capacity and competence.”

This position is not new for Qaradawi. In January 1998, the Associated Press quoted al-Qaradawi as writing, “There should be no dialogue with these people [Israelis] except with swords.” And in April 2001, he described suicide bombings as follows, “They are not suicide operations…These are heroic martyrdom operations.”

Clarion Project:

There is growing concern in the British intelligence agency, MI5, that radicalized citizens who have fought alongside Al Qaeda militias in Syria will return to Britain to carry out terror attacks.

Channel 4 prepared the following video report which examines the process of radicalization of these young Muslims, usually recruited through extremist websites and social media networks which glorify the idea of becoming a martyr, promising paradise to anyone dying fighting against Assad’s regime in Syria. Shiraz Maher, a senior fellow at the Int’l Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, shows the pictures used to entice the young men to join the Islamist militants.

via The Blaze: ‘WE WILL BLEED YOU TO DEATH’: BRITISH JIHADIS DESCRIBE THEIR AIMS FOR AMERICA AFTER SYRIA FIGHT

British men fighting alongside Al Qaeda-linked groups in Syria have said that after Syria, they aim to take the battle to the United States and Britain.

Vice News posted video with interviews of British men who traveled to the combat zone to pair up with the jihadi groups Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“I say to United States that your time will come and we will bleed you to death and, inshallah [Allah willing], will raise the flag in the White House,” a 26-year-old Briton told the Vice News interviewer.

“My feeling is great, hamdullallah (thank Allah), I’m happy I’m here. And I’m here to please Allah… and I’m not here to please anyone else but Allah,” he added, describing his aim as contributing to jihad on behalf of Muslims.

During the entire video, all of the men were masked, revealing only their eyes, and none provided their names.

A second British citizen blamed his government and prime minister for perpetrating “crimes” against Muslims. He tied his objectives with those of the killers of Lee Rigby, the British soldier who was hacked to death in the London neighborhood of Woolwich in May. The perpetrators – both Muslim converts – described their motives as revenge for the killing of Muslims by British forces serving in the Middle East.

“Like the guy in Woolwich, he explained that [Prime Minister] David Cameron would never walk on the street, and he’ll never get shot in the face, whereas you guys who are soldiers, or just normal folk, will take the blame for the crimes that are committed worldwide by Britain itself so we have to fight. It’s part of our obligation…to protect our honor, to protect our women,” the Syrian rebel from the UK said.

After Syria, the aim is “to bring back the honor of Islam from Filastine [Palestine] to Al Aqsa to all over the Muslim world, and Britain will be next,” said one of the British jihadis.

“From this land we will march toward the Al Aqsa mosque [in Jerusalem] in the name of Allah. Allahu Akbar! [Allah is the greatest],” said another.

***

According to a Daily Beast report last month, U.S. intelligence estimates vary about the number of Americans who have gone on jihad in Syria, ranging from 10 to 60.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers has called the Syrian civil war a “jihadist magnet.” He told the Daily Beast in September, “At some point all of these people from Europe are going home. All the folks there from all over the world, including the United States, will be coming home if they do not meet their end on the battlefield.”

Muslim History 101

By Mike Konrad:

This is what the fight is all about: In the center of Jerusalem is the sacred structure which the Jews label as the Temple Mount, and the Arabs refer to as the Haram al-Sharif (the noble sanctuary) and Al-Aqsa (the farthest Mosque). A mere 35 acres; yet touch it, and the Ummah [the Islamic homeland] will go to war.

So who has the better claim?

Ignoring the issue of political sovereignty, let us focus solely on which religion has the greater claim to that sacred space.

According to the Quran, at one time all of mankind was Muslim; and all men had apostasized into error.

Surah 42:13 … He enjoined upon Noah and that which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what We enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus

However, mankind corrupted the message of Islam; and so Allah raised up one last messenger. Allah sent Jibreel (Gabriel) to a man named Mohammed to restore the original truth to the Arabs, which they were to bring to the world through jihad.

Quran 66:9 Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers …

According to Islam, since mankind was originally Muslim, all places of true worship must have originally been a mosque.

This is the reason that Muslim Arabs claim justification in taking the sacred areas of whatever lands they seize, and restoring the buildings to what they perceive as their original service to Allah. The “Temple Area” in Jerusalem became the Al-Aqsa (farthest) Mosque, in the city, now renamed Al Quds. Constantinople’s Christian Hagia Sofia was defaced and dedicated to Islam. The Hindu Temple of Rama in Ayohya, India destroyed and rebuilt as the Babri Mosque. [The Hindus finally seized it back in 1992] One can only begin to imagine what may soon happen to Notre Dame in Paris.

Against the myths of Islam, Jewish claims are based on history, first person accounts, archeology, and the Bible. The Jews have an embarrassment of riches from which to make their claim to the Mount.

One could note the Bible, which mentions the temple over a hundred times, and Jerusalem over 800 times; yet never once mentions Allah or Al-Quds. But the Bible was corrupted by the Jews — according to the Quran — and ignored as unreliable by Muslims.

Josephus mentions the Temple Mount in his first-century Wars of the Jews, six centuries before Mohammed. Apparently Jospehus was not aware that Moses, Solomon, and Jesus were Muslim, even though he was a contemporary of the Apostles.

Temple MountThen there is the Arch of Titus in Rome with its frieze of a menorah stolen by the Romans from the Temple in Jerusalem. Don’t be fooled by corrupt labeling!

That cannot be a menorah; it must actually be three Islamic crescents.

The 2000-year-old Dead Sea scrolls — which predate Mohammed by at least seven centuries — are ignored. How the Muslim scholars deny that is beyond belief; but they do.

 

Roman CoinRoman coins bearing the words IVDEA CAPTA (Judea captive) commemorating the destruction of Israel from the First Jewish War were struck for 25 years in many denominations.

[A]t least 48 different types are known.

Somehow, Muslims ignore this, and claim the Jews are not native to the area; but are instead Europeans.

Most amazing is how Muslims ignore that Mohammed died four years before the forces of Islam even arrived at the gates of Jerusalem in 636 AD. The city would not capitulate until 637 AD. There were no mosques in Jerusalem during Mohammed’s lifetime. So what mosque could Mohammed have even visited during his night journey?

The Muslims ignore all this and rename Jerusalem Al Quds as if it were always Muslim.

Jihad is ‘getting to a better place,’ says CAIR campaign

slide_270028_1886096_free-600x350By Neil Munro

An Islamic-advocacy group linked to terrorism is launching a public-relations campaign to argue that jihad doesn’t mean Islamic holy war, but instead a “concerted effort … with the purpose of getting to a better place.”

However, the campaign, which is being launched Dec. 14 by an affiliate of the Council on American Islamic Relations, isn’t a formal religious declaration by United States or Arab Islamic authorities, and it does clash with orthodox judgments dating back 1,400 years to the beginning of Islam.

“It is [public] education about what we believe,” said Ahmed Rehab, who serves as the founder of the project, head of CAIR’s Chicago affiliate and CAIR’s strategic communications chief.

The views of jihad groups, Salafi activists in Egypt and of the Arab world’s leading preacher, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, “are not the entirety of the story,” Rehab told The Daily Caller on Thursday.

Those orthodox views of jihad as warfare to spread Islam are being championed by a new wave of Islamic revivalists — including numerous jihadi groups, such as the “Jamaat al-Tawhid wa’l-Jihad” terror group in the Gaza strip.

They also are being pushed by Qaradawi, whose weekly radio show has a claimed audience of 60 million. In 2011, he was invited by the dominant Islamic group in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, to give a speech to thousands of Islamist supporters in downtown Cairo.

“I have hope that Almighty Allah … will also please me with the conquest of the al-Aqsa Mosque [in Jerusalem, Israel]. … May Allah prepare the way for us to preach in the al-Aqsa Mosque in safety!” he declared.

In contrast, Rehab’s “MyJihad” public-relations campaign portrays jihad as “a concerted and noble effort against injustice, hate, misunderstanding, war, violence, poverty, hunger, abuse or whatever challenge big or small we face in daily life, with the purpose of getting to a better place,” according to the campaign’s website, MyJihad.org.

The campaign will include testimonials, op-eds, bus advertising and visits to mosques, Rehab said.

“This is a whitewash,” charged Robert Spencer, the author of several books about orthodox Islam.

Jihad, Spencer said, in Islamic texts “as well as in Islamic law, has always borne the primary meaning of warfare against unbelievers in order to affect their subjugation under Sharia.”

‘Holy Jihad’ is the only way to deal with Israel, says Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood chief

Times of Israel:

By :

Egypt’s foremost Muslim Brotherhood official called on the Arab world Thursday to replace negotiations with Israel with “holy Jihad,” claiming that if Jews are allowed to pray on the Temple Mount they will destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and supplant it with the third temple.

Mohammed Badie, Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, declared in a public message published by Egyptian daily Al-Ahram that “the Zionists only understand force,” and that Arabs cannot hope to achieve justice from the Jews “through the corridors of the United Nations or through negotiations.”

‘Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,’ Badie continued. ‘This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance’

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate, but he resigned all official positions in the movement upon taking office. He has said that his government would uphold the Camp David peace accords with Israel, and recently named a new ambassador to Israel.

“The time has come for the Islamic nation to unite around one man for the sake of Jerusalem and Palestine,” Badie said. “The Jews have dominated the land, spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profaned holy places, including their own.”

“Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,” Badie continued. “This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance. The day they realize we will march this path and raise the banner of Jihad for the sake of God, is the day they will relent and stop their tyranny.”

Badie, 69, has headed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2010, and before that served on its governing council for more than a decade. Trained in veterinary medicine and an academic by profession, he served time in jail for political activity as a young man but was pardoned by president Anwar Sadat.

Notorious Anti-Semite and 9/11 Denier Now Head of Egypt’s Gov’t Religious Dept.

by THE  GLOBAL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD DAILY REPORT

Egyptian Artabic-language media is reporting  that Salah Soltan, a notorious anti-Semite and formerly part of the U.S. Muslim  Brotherhood,, has been appointed as Secretary General of the Supreme Council for  Islamic Affairs (SCIF) attached  to the Egyptian Ministry of Waqf. The  appointment was made by the Minister Dr. Talaat Mohamed Afify Salem who has  been described  as a member of the Salafist movement in Egypt and as an “ally”  of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Ministry of Waqf (Islamic Endowment) is reported  to have influence over Al-Azhar, the country’s most important  Islamic institution. The SCIF describes  itself as follows:

The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs is one of the sectors affiliated to  the Egyptian Ministry of Al-Awqaf (Endowments). It was established at 1960  with the aim of presenting the Moderate and Enlightened Islamic Culture to  Muslims in Egypt, Arab and Muslim Worlds as well as for all concerned personals  of the Islamic Culture.

In 2006, the Simon  Wiesenthal Center complained  about anti-Semitic and anti-Christian material appearing on the official SCIF  website. In 2007, Egyptian media reported  that SCIF had issued a fatwa permitting so-called “pleasure marriages” in  which the woman gives up some of the rights granted her by Islam, such as the  right to housing and financial support from her husband

Dr. Salah Sultan (aka Solah Sultan, Sallah Sultan) had left the U.S.  following negative press reports in the U.S. media about his extremist  statements which led the authorities there to suspend his application for  American citizenship and, as discussed in a previous post,  relocated to Bahrain in 2007 where he was appointed  as adviser to the head of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs in that  country. Dr Sultan’s online CV, now removed from the  Internet, indicates that he is or was a member of several important U.S.  and European Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the European Council for  Fatwa and Research, the Fiqh Council of North America, and the Islamic American  University, closely associated with the Muslim American Society (MAS).This  resume also expressed Dr. Soltan’s vision “To live happily. To die as a martyr.”  Another previous post discussed some of Dr.  Sultan statements including an appearance on Saudi TV where Dr. Sultan asserted  that the US planned the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for terrorizing the world and  praising Osama bin Laden confidante Abd Al-Majid Al-Zindani. Another post discussed a seminar  featuring Dr. Sultan sponsored by the European Assembly for Imams and Spiritual  Guides, closely associated with the Federation of Islamic Organizations In  Europe (FIOE). Dr. Sultan is also known to be a  a prominent member of  the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) headed by  Global Muslim  Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi.

In November a post reported  that Dr. Sultan had given two sermons on Al-Aqsa TV in which he said he has met  people all over the world who “thirst for the blood of the Jews” and that Jews  have entered Egypt in order to commit crimes including deliberately infecting  Egyptian girls with AIDS.  In a March TV interview he  cited the notorious anti-Semitic forgery the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as  well as predicting the end of Israel and the United States. In another  recent TV interview Dr. Sultan called for  young people to practice sports in order to prepare themselves for Jihad to  liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Another recent post discussed  demands by Sultan for violent actions against Israeli by Egyptians, this time  issuing a fatwa (religious ruling) calling for the killing of the Israeli  ambassador on Alzajeera TV. A post from  August 2011 reported that Sultan had said it is permissible for any  Egyptian to kill a Zionist met on Egyptian territory. In April 2010, Dr.  Sultan accused Jews of  using Christian blood for Matzoh (substitute for bread used during the Jewish  holiday of Passover) in an example of what is called “blood libel”, the  accusations that Jews use human blood in religious rituals. (Historically these  are accusations that the blood of Christian children is especially coveted and  date back to the 1st Century . In 2008 he made other  virulently  anti-Semitic and anti-American comments on  Egyptian TV.

PA, Islamists Push Blood Libel Against Israel

IPT News September 6, 2012

One of the most enduring anti-Israel slanders is the charge that it is persecuting non-Jews and destroying Muslim and Christian holy sites. These dubious claims continue to be made not only by international organizations, but by U.S. groups like American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
