ISIS versus President Obama


As news unfolded about the beheading of journalist Jim Foley by the ISIS (or ISIL or IS) Islamists, it first appeared that it would once again be an Internet only story that wouldn’t get wide coverage.  But thankfully it did, and so much so that President Obama even took to the airwaves to condemn the actions of ISIS.

Yet once again the President and others on the left insist that what ISIS is doing — torturing and killing innocent men, women and children, raping some and selling some into slavery — is not in harmony with the sacred texts or traditions of Islam.

The White House web site even proclaimed the ISIS speaks for no religion at all. But while most of the world wants to agree with the statement and the sentiment — the facts simply aren’t on the side of those ignorant about Islam and the Qur’an.

Surah 9 of the Qur’an called Repentance is referred to by many as Muhammad’s Last Will and Testament. Since Surah 9 is the last major surah revealed in the Qur’an, it trumps (or abrogates per Surah [2:10]6) all of the peaceful verses handedjames-foley-beheaded-300x145 down and written earlier.

Here are just a few of the commands and exhortations found in Surah 9:

1.  No agreements are valid with idolaters (which includes Jews and Christians as explained in [9:30]).  (9:3)

2.  Slay the idolaters wherever you find them. (9:5)

3.  Do not make friends with non-Muslims ([9:23])

4.  Idolaters (including Jews and Christians) are filth – najisun. ([9:28])

5.  Fight Jews and Christians until they become Muslims or pay tribute in utter humiliation. ([9:29])

6.  Islam must be triumphant over all other religions. ([9:33])
