A Jihad to Free Morsi?

Hamas has issued orders to free former Egyptian President Morsi and other Muslim Brotherhood prisoners in Egypt, according to a letter allegedly written by the terrorist group’s military wing that was published in the Arab press. The stated end goal is “establishing an Islamic Caliphate;” a goal that can only be achieved by wiping Israel off the map.

A copy of the document was translated by an Egyptian-American source. It was originally published on July 14 by an Egyptian newspaper named El-Fagr, or “The Dawn.” The news agency says it was given the letter by a source inside Egypt’s Defense Ministry. It is dated July 10, 2013 and is a declaration of the Hamas military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades. It carries the watermark of a Colonel Sabry Yassin.

The source provided the following translation:

Announcement and invitation to the “General Trumpet”:’

Jihadi brothers, pure saints/commanders of brigades in Gaza, Sinai and inside Egypt,

In light of the demands of the current events that are full of severe challenges, and for what our responsibility that has been thrust upon our shoulders to fulfill the Islamic people’s dream of establishing an Islamic Caliphate;

and in light of the seriousness of the current events and the repercussions that befall our brothers and their Jihadi leaders, the Supreme Guide and members of the Muslim Brotherhood (May God be pleased with them and may He help them be victorious);

and in light of how serious and dangerous the situation facing our Grand Islamic Project and what faces our Jihadi and just President Mohammed Morsi, the imprisoned prisoner of war, the one who has been arrested by the hands of the traitors and the military, the signatories of the Camp David Accord.

For that we invite you all to unite, organize and be prepared and let the trumpets blow awaiting and declaring the house is upon us! Head towards the barracks, the center, the headquarters of the brigades to teach them a lesson and to free our prisoners from the prisons of darkness and to achieve truth and justice, to make religion victorious and to return the situation to the right path.

God is our aim, His Prophet is our example, the Koran our constitution and death in the case of God is the highest and noblest desire.

For it is a victorious Jihad/martyrdom.

The source points out that the “General Trumpet” is a reference to an angels’ blowing of a trumpet before a significant event. This should be seen as the precursor to a major confrontation. He also notes that Morsi is referred to as a “prisoner of war,” which means that Hamas now views Egypt to be in a state of war/jihad.

Why Hamas “Loves Death”—And Cease-Fires

Following the cease-fire announcement, Palestinian Muslims danced in the streets of Gaza, chanting, “People of Gaza, you have won.”

No less than 20 rockets were fired into Israel Wednesday (11/21/12) night within the first three hours after the cease-fire understanding between Israel and Hamas ostensibly began at 9 p.m. local time. Despite inauspicious beginnings, following an overnight calm, by Thursday morning (11/22/12), senior Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officials maintained they believe Hamas and Islamic Jihad intended to implement the cease-fire with Israel, and prevent other jihadist factions from firing into Israel.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak clarified that the cease-fire was not an agreement with Hamas, but rather a document of “understandings”—between Israel and Egypt, on the one hand, and Egypt and Hamas, on the other. During an interview with Israel Radio, Barak insisted,  “There is no agreement. I am holding the paper in my hands.” Moreover, Barak and the IDF believe that despite Hamas’ public triumphant crowing, the Gaza regime was privately aware of the significant level of damage its jihadist infrastructure had sustained during Operation Pillar of Defense.

Hamas’ renewed jihadist violence against Israel was punctuated, initially, by messages extolling their “love of death” to terrorize and demoralize the Israelis, then suing for a cease-fire when the Israelis retaliated with devastating effectiveness. These actions epitomize the archetypal jihad tactics of Islam’s founder Muhammad, idealized as the eternal model for behaviors that all Muslims should emulate.

Nearly six decades ago (in 1956), Arthur Jeffery, a great modern scholar of Islam, reviewed Guillaume’s magisterial English translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, the oldest and most important Muslim biography of Muhammad. Jeffery’s review included this trenchant observation:

Years ago the late Canon Gairdner in Cairo said that the best answer to the numerous apologetic Lives of Muhammad published in the interests of Muslim propaganda in the West would be an unvarnished translation of the earliest Arabic biography of the prophet.

W. H. T. (Canon) Gairdner, in 1915, highlighted the dilemma posed by Islam’s sacralization of Muhammad’s timeless behavioral role model, revealed in such pious Muslim biographical works:

As incidents in the life of an Arab conqueror, the tales of raiding, private assassinations and public executions, perpetual enlargements of the harem, and so forth, might be historically explicable and therefore pardonable but it is another matter that they should be taken as a setting forth of the moral ideal for all time.

As recorded by Palestinian Media  Watch, Hamas’ Al-Qassam Brigades—named after the murderous 1930s jihadist Izz al-Din al-Qassam—issued a November 18, 2012 message  addressed to Israeli soldiers, which stated:

From the Al-Qassam Brigades to the Zionist soldiers: The Al-Qassam Brigades love death more than you love life. [emphasis added]

Such macabre, hideous sentiments are intrinsic to Hamas’ ideology, and deeply rooted in Islamic theology.

The Preamble to Hamas’ 1988 foundational covenant plainly affirms its abiding,  ancient commitment to jihad “martyrdom,” in the context of re-conquering all of historical Palestine:

[Hamas] joins arms with all those who wage jihad for the liberation of Palestine. The souls of its jihad fighters meet the souls of all those jihad fighters who sacrificed their lives for the land of Palestine, from the time when the Prophet’s companions conquered it until the present.

And the specific motif of Muslims as “loving death” more than infidels, especially perfidious Jews, love life, also dates back to the advent of Islam.

According to Islam’s seminal early historian, al-Tabari (d. 923), during Abu Bakr’s reign as Caliph (i.e., immediately after Muhammad’s death), his commander Khalid b. al-Walid’s wrote a letter in 634 to a Persian leader in Iraq identified as “Hurmuz,” warning of a prototypical expansionist jihad campaign, spearheaded by Muslim warriors enamored of death.
