Islam Commands Individual Jihad

Family Security Matters 23 January 2012
By Clare M. Lopez

According to Islamic law, Jihad is warfare to spread the religion and is obligatory for all Muslims everywhere until such time as "there is no more Fitna [resistance to Islam] and the religion will all be for Allah alone.” (Q 8:39) Jihad against the infidel (kuffar) is of two types: offensive and defensive. The offensive kind, called "Fard Kifaya,” is conducted under the leadership of the Caliph and is for the purpose of defending the borders of Islam and sending out the armies of Islam at least once a year to terrorize the enemies of Allah. Offensive Jihad is a collective duty and when enough Muslim fighters respond to the call of the Caliph, the remainder of the Muslim population is relieved of this duty.

Is there a single public official who is examining – who cares about – the murder spree by Afghan security forces against Western troops and security contractors in Afghanistan? I can list well over 40 such murders in the past two years. These incidents even have their own phrase in military jargon – "green-on-blue” shootings – but the color we should all be seeing is red. Does Obama see red? Pelosi? Romney? Newt? Anyone?

The European Union and the United States Sign a Suicide Pact

Townhall Conservative 23 January 2012
By Michael Youssef

No, I am not talking about the impending economic doom that some are predicting will impact both continents.

I am talking about the complicit support given to Muslim countries in the UN who have been on a rampage to make it an international crime to criticize Islam in any way, shape or form.

In December 2011, the United States hosted what is known as the "Istanbul Process Conference” in Washington, DC. This Conference is explicitly committed to a global ban on any verbal or written criticism of any aspect of Islamic Sharia—even if it is an honest assessment. After all, how else will they cram Sharia down the throats of unsuspecting Westerners?
