5 Modern Terrorists™ Opinions on IS&J

1 is Sufi

Jihadists repeat what the previous 90 examples of famous jurists say, often quoting some of the same jurists and verses from Koran and Hadith. The term War on Terror™ is used like we are at war with a tactic. Here are 5 notables, then a listing of many around the world.

Imitated His Prophet

Terrorist™ Supremacist

1) Sheik Osama Bin Laden (1957-2011) - Co-founder and leader of Al-Qaeda, killed by US Navy Seals in Pakistan, remembered as a martyr by many. Not a sharia scholar, but in his 1996 “Declaration of War Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places” he quotes the Koran 7 times 2:154, 3:145, 8:72, 9:5, 9:14, 47:4, 47:19. In his 2002 Letter to the American People he said,

  1. “What are we calling you to, and what do we want from you? The first thing we are calling you to is Islam... It is the religion of jihad in the way of Allah so that Allah’s word and religion reign supreme.” 

  2. "Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue… Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam... Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die." An Open Question to Osama Bin Laden — or Any Other Islamist

  3. "I am one of the servants of Allah.  We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah.  It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam.  Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion." 

No fatwa ever declared him non-Muslim (apostate). Raymond Ibrahim translated some of his personal writing in his book The Al-Qaeda Reader.

2) Ayman Al-Zawahiri (1951- ) - Chief ideologue of Al-Qaeda, and “operational brains” behind 9/11. He studied at Cairo University, is reportedly qualified as a surgeon, and was more knowledgable about Islamic theology than bin Laden. He joined the Muslim Brotherhood at 14, was inspired by Qutb’s writings, and met Sheik Abdullah Azzam in Egypt in the early 70‘s. His underground cell eventually became the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, who was behind the assassination of President Anwar Sadat in 1981. He was arrested with hundreds of others, imprisoned, and probably tortured. In 1985 he left for Saudi Arabia, where he practiced medicine in Jeddah and likely met bin Laden. He wrote Knights Under the Prophet’s Banner (2001), which Ibn Warraq says is one of “4 core texts of jihadists” today, and was announced as AQ #1 after bin Laden’s death in 2011. The US Department of State was offering $25 million reward for him. In 2013 an Arabic website reported that Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood president Morsi secretly met with him in Pakistan and promised to smuggle him back into Egypt.

Good Example of a Zebibah

Proof of a Pious Terrorist™

Dr. Gorka explains, “Key concepts of his seminal work begin with the statement that human beings cannot be sovereign. Sovereignty is Allah’s alone, therefore democracy must be destroyed as it posits man’s sovereignty over man. Democracy is nothing more than a pagan religion... Muslims must all unite under one flag... it doesn’t matter if you’re living comfortably in London, Berlin, or Minnesota... 

  1. “In our means, methods, and resources we must combine patience with infliction of mass casualties and the best method to do this is suicide attacks.” (Zawahiri)

  2. 3)Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (1971- ) - First Caliph of the new Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL) created in 2014. Has PH.D in Islamic Studies.

4) Baitullah Mehsud - Taliban jihadist leader from Waziristan says:

  1. "Allah on 480 occasions in the Holy Koran extols Muslims to wage jihad. We only fulfill God's orders. Only jihad can bring peace to the world. We will continue our struggle until foreign troops are thrown out. Then we will attack them in the US and Britain until they either accept Islam or agree to pay jizya."

5) Shamil Salmanovich Basayev (1965 - 2006) - Chechen Sufi (Qadiri order). In 1991 armed with pistols and grenades, he hijacked a Turkish airliner to Grozny, Chechnya’s capital, then released all 171 passengers and crew. The Sufi website in 1999 defended him as a gazi [jihadist] for sure, but not a terrorist,”. He later claimed responsibility for 3 more major attacks:

  1. -The seizure of a Moscow theater in 2002  where dozens of hostages and militants died.

  2. -The 2004 school hostage taking in Beslan that killed 331.

  3. -The seizure of about 1,000 hostages at a hospital in Budyonnovsk that killed about 100. 

Soviet scholar of Islam Alexandre Benningsen (1913 - 1988) wrote:

  1. Sufism is not a sect, nor is it a heretical or schismatic movement; it is an integral part of orthodox Islam. Western analysts in particular are prone to lose sight of this fact, frequently alluding to Sufism instead as something foreign to Islam.. the heritage of Sufism not only in its cultural, intellectual and mystical aspects, but also...its militant holy war tradition, symbolized by the Caucasian Naqshbandiya...”

Over 15 years before those attacks the book saw the need:

  1. “ begin to understand the Sufi phenomena in the Soviet Union before events leave us groping for explanations.” (Bennigsen, S.E. Wimbush. Mystics and Commisars. Sufism in the Soviet Union, 1985, p. 164. (Bostom: Sufi Jihad?)

  1. A sampling of statements by jihadists from around the world.

  1. A list of American Muslim jihadists.

Notice how many people in that list and other jihadists are converts to Islam who somehow misunderstood the peaceful tolerant teachings of the religion, yet there are no comprehensive effort in mosques to prevent this from happening ever again, nor to defeat any Islamophobia™ they claim exists by taking these 5 simple steps.

  1. Spencer comments in China: Three Muslims sentenced to death for trying to hijack and blow up plane

  1. The high cost of misunderstanding Islam affects even Muslims in China. Yet still no Muslim groups anywhere devote even a single program to try to prevent young Muslims from misunderstanding their peaceful religion. Now, why is that?”
