Declare War On Pernicious Jihadism

By Ameer Ali

The carnage in Paris yet again demonstrates how professionally organised the IS criminal enterprise is. The fact that it was able to penetrate Paris undetected by the nation’s security radar speaks volumes about IS’s intelligence and global reach. No decent human being can remain emotionally undisturbed by the horror of the satanic ritual that IS has displayed in Paris. It should be universally condemned in the strongest of words in any language.

In the aftermath of the Parisian infamy the crucial questions to answer are firstly, why did this happen, and what is the long term solution to this menace?

Had the Bush administration taken the most obvious and rational decision in 2001 to make Saudi Arabia accountable for what happened in S11 and continued to monitor and prevent the export of its Wahhabi ideology, instead of bombing and destroying Afghanistan and Iraq, the world today would have been spared of the murderous IS caliphate and the Parisians like others before them need not have fallen prey to IS’s sword. Bush’s soul mate Tony Blair’s mea culpa is too little too late to repair the damage.

Once again the world leaders while focusing on military retribution, which has already started and killing even more civilians who will not be counted because they are Muslims, and political solution to the Syrian chaos, which is yet to materialize, are about to make the same error of ignoring the fundamental problem of a fast spreading pernicious ideology.

No doubt the IS criminal enterprise must be eliminated, but is that possible having allowed it to become a virtual state with a sizeable territory of approximately 90,000 square kilometres with around six million people, a highly trained army with sophisticated weapons, ample economic resources, and a welfare administrative structure?

The collective disbandment of Saddam Hussein’s Sunni but secular Pretorian Guard by Bush’s US envoy to Iraq Paul Bremer, and after that the continued harassment, imprisonment and economic deprivation of the disbanded soldiers by Nouri al-Maliki’s Shia Government drove these military men into the arms of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the self-declared caliph of IS. Even though many of them are now in their mid and late fifties or early sixties they are providing valuable security intelligence and military advice to IS. Given this situation aerial bombing alone by France and other Western powers is not going to wipe IS out of existence. To make the offensive effective the West needs boots on the ground but that would be a nightmare even to contemplate after what the U.S. and its allies experienced in the quagmire of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Given the proxy wars that had been going on in Syria won’t IS with behind the scene support from the Sunni Gulf regimes be a stakeholder in any political solution? In spite of all the rhetoric about destroying IS, it is now an inconvenient reality which the West has to contend with.

Optimistically even if IS were to be obliterated what is the guarantee that some other Islamist group will not crop up elsewhere in the region with even more venomous a brand of Jihadism?

What needs to be confronted is not the IS Jihadists per se but their ideology of Jihad which, with a strange twist of shariah interpretation has been franchised by Al-Qaeda and IS to each and every individual Muslim. This explains the lone wolf phenomenon that some countries are confronting. Where does the ideology of Jihad against the Shias, Christians, Jews, Alawites, Ismailis, Sufis, and infidels come from? What is the ideology that motivates the jihadists to destroy all tombs and historical monuments like the Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan? What is the source of the Jihadists’ philistinism that suppresses all aesthetic aspects of life like dance, music and art?

This pernicious ideology is the common denominator of all extremists Islamist movements such as Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Taliban, Jabhat al-Nusra, Jamaa Islamiyya, IS and so on. Although the intellectual origins of this extremism go back to the writings of a thirteenth-fourteenth century scholar from Harran in Turkey, Ibn-Taymiyya, it was the ideas of his seventeenth century disciple and preacher from Saudi Arabia, Abd al-Wahhab that is now winning the hearts and minds of the new generation of Islamists. Taymiyya did not father his own school of thought but Wahhab did and Wahhabism is now the national religious ideology of Saudi Arabia. Wahhabism with its Salafist blend is the most conservative and exclusivist of all interpretations of Islam’s Holy Texts.

Saudi Arabia with its petrodollars and through its publications and institutions is the sole exporter of this ideology. All but one of the attackers in the S11 was a Saudi citizen. Almost all Islamist leaders have spent some part of their life in Saudi Arabia either working or studying; or, have received their education and training in Saudi backed institutions in their own countries. Even expatriate workers in Saudi Arabia have been indoctrinated with Wahhabism. This indoctrination is producing a new generation of Muslims who are dedicated to the establishment of an Islamic state with the Shariah law. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a product of this ideology.

It is this ideology that is now challenging the rest of the world and the only way to counter it is to propagate the other side of Islam which produced one of if not the most glorious civilization in the world. This Islam was rational, discursive, tolerant, and inclusivist. It was this Islam that was the refuge for persecuted Jews in Christendom; it was this Islam that preserved and promoted the Graeco-Roman legacy and handed it back to Europe to enjoy its Renaissance and Enlightenment; and it was this Islam gave the world some of the brilliant scientists, philosophers, astronomers, mathematicians, geographers, historians and mystics. It is time that this Islam is brought back to the frontal stage. It is in the interest of the West to invest heavily in the propagation of this alternate Islam.

Military response to the Parisian barbarity may be politically popular and even economically rewarding to the military-industrial complex but will be counter-productive as it has been so far. It is time to declare a war on Jihadism.

    Well, every time an ISIS guy beheads a human he yells “Allah o Akbar”. Thats the same phrase a Moslem yell when he/she slits a throat of a sacrificial lamb.

    When challenged the the ISIS guy would refer to a passage in the Quran that endorses his actions.

    So its not rocket science. The Moslems are doing this to catch a nice birth next to Allah with the 70 virgins. Furthermore, they get their directions from the Quran.

    So the Moslems themselves need to have a debate on the content of their teaching. Does one re-write the Quran as with the new-Testament?

    I think Moslems should update the Quaran with the latest knowledge leaving out the passages that lead people to such barbarism.

        Amarasiri, too much of a good thing is good for nothing it has been said. Your Wahhabi cut and paste masturbation too falls into the same category. Masturbate as much you want, but do you need to it in a public forum? You must be a pervert, ha?

          “Your Wahhabi cut and paste masturbation too falls into the same category. “

          It does not matter. The Wahhabis will not accept it. All they want to do is kill the Shia, Sufis, Ahemadia and others who are not Wahhabis, and then go after others who are not Wahhabi. Wahhabis think that they own Islam,

          Good to know that the message about the Wahhabis, who follow the Devil, Iblis, Satan, Lucifer Mara etc is beginning to sink in, with some irritation.

          Remember after almost 500 years of Coprpernicus, Galileo and Kepler, still many belive that the Sun goes atound the Earth. 25% Americans, 34% Europeans and 47% Sri NLankans and over 50% of the Saudis who are infested by Wahhabis.

          Wahhabis – Salafis – Sheik Imran Hosein

          enjoy More Wahhabis. They all get a kick out of being Wahhabi, and others are exploiting it.

          Wahhabism is a movement that was first founded by the Muhammad Bin Abdul Wahhab with a British Spy Hampher. At present days, they do not like the term Wahhabi. That is why, they are now giving their identity as Salafi. In Indian Sub continent, they are also known as Ahle Hadith or Gayre Mukkallid. But their one of the most preferable scholar Bin Baz use the term ‘WAHHABIYAH’.

          Wahhabis are killing every day. If one can a fraction of the Muslims saved from the Inlis Wahhabis, it will be great service to all people, as many turn out to be Terrorists in various ways.

          Spread the word. Wahhabis follow Iblis, Satan, Jinn and is there to deceive the people. Imagine, the Sri Lankan Tamils were warned about LTTE, and how many lives would have been saved?

          An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In the metric system, a mg of of prevention is worth a kg of cure.

          There are 6 million Syrian Refugees in Syria, and about 4 million in Iraq, partly, Courtesy of Wahhabi and their clones, aided and abetted by the west and others. They Follow the Inlis, Devil and have infected the Wahhabis, and they spread the Iblisism just like a flu, cold or cold.

      I don’t know where Vibhushana gets his Islamic knowledge from, but, here is the the correct quote from the Quran:

      “ … If anyone slew a person unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land it would be as if he slew the whole humanity: and if anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole humanity.” (Al-Qur’an 5:32)

      Explanation in simple form – if you kill any person, be a Jew, Christian, Muslim, etc., then you are good as killing the WHOLE mankind. If you save any person, it is as if you saved a WHOLE mankind.

        GORAKA:

        There are many suras in the Quran that promote violence:

        here is one for your edification …

        Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…

        but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” (Translation is from the Noble Quran) The verse prior to this (190) refers to “fighting for the cause of Allah those who fight you” leading some to believe that the entire passage refers to a defensive war in which Muslims are defending their homes and families. The historical context of this passage is not defensive warfare, however, since Muhammad and his Muslims had just relocated to Medina and were not under attack by their Meccan adversaries. In fact, the verses urge offensive warfare, in that Muslims are to drive Meccans out of their own city (which they later did). Verse 190 thus means to fight those who offer resistance to Allah’s rule (ie. Muslim conquest). The use of the word “persecution” by some Muslim translators is disingenuous (the actual Arabic words for persecution – “idtihad” – and oppression – a variation of “z-l-m” – do not appear in the verse). The word used instead, “fitna”, can mean disbelief, or the disorder that results from unbelief or temptation. This is certainly what is meant in this context since the violence is explicitly commissioned “until religion is for Allah” – ie. unbelievers desist in their unbelief.

        and there are many others such as:
        Quran (2:244); Quran (2:216);Quran (3:56); Quran (3:151) Quran (4:74); Quran (4:76);Quran (4:89); Quran (4:95); Quran (4:104); Quran (5:33); Quran (8:12); Quran (8:15); Quran (8:39); Quran (8:57); Quran (8:67); Quran (8:59-60); Quran (8:65; Quran (9:5); Quran (9:14); Quran (9:20); Quran (9:29); Quran (9:30); Quran (9:38-39); Quran (9:41);Quran (9:73); Quran (9:88); Quran (9:111); Quran (9:123); Quran (17:16); Quran (18:65-81); Quran (21:44); Quran (25:52); Quran (33:60-62); Quran (47:3-4); Quran (47:35); Quran (48:17); Quran (48:29); Quran (61:4); Quran (61:10-12); Quran (66:9)

          Typical Islamphobic comment. The Quran like the Bible and Torah were written during violent times, and wars waged in the name of religions. It is naive to think that the other Holy Books have no violence in their scripture. Any attempt to make one religion look bad, shows the person doing so, is totally ignorant of the facts.

          “Bruce Feiler writes that “Jews and Christians who smugly console themselves that Islam is the only violent religion are willfully ignoring their past. Nowhere is the struggle between faith and violence described more vividly, and with more stomach-turning details of ruthlessness, than in the Hebrew Bible”.[8] Similarly, Burggraeve and Vervenne describe the Old Testament as full of violence and evidence of both a violent society and a violent god. They write that, “(i)n numerous Old Testament texts the power and glory of Israel’s God is described in the language of violence.” They assert that more than one thousand passages refer to YHWH as acting violently or supporting the violence of humans and that more than one hundred passages involve divine commands to kill humans.[9]

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Views_of_violence_in_Judaism

          Let us not forget the crusades, where hundreds of thousands of Muslims and Christians, were killed by Catholics in the name of their religion.

          Let us not forget the thousands of Palestinians killed by a brutal occupier, who have kept them under a brutal occupation, killing children, families, and stealing their land, all in the name of their “Jewish” state, which has gone on for over 60 years.

          Lame attempt to demonize all Muslims for what some extremists do.

          These verses are quoted out of context. So are verses related to women. All these religious leaders would agree on the verses relating to war as contextual but not when it comes to women it is considered binding. In modern times ulemas do or want women to be judges in courts established to deal in Muslim marriages and divorces but they would obey women judges in the Supreme Court.. Muslim ulemas would quote Quran out of context to keep women out of these special courts .
          There are Muslim women judges in our courts too and our learned ulemas would obey them. These ulemas selectively quote Quran to suit there purpose.

          All these Quranic verses are pure rubbish and do not mean a thing. They are all man made as the Quran was written many hundreds of years after the birth of Islam and has to have been created by scholars, unfortunately men and skewed in favour of men. Even so, while Christianity preaches giving the other cheek when slapped, Islam, according to your verses, wants Muslims to fight back and take revenge. Which religion do you think is a religion of peace. I am an atheist myself and don’t believe in any of them, but I respect them all as they give solace to millions but sadly there are people with own agendas and fetishes who take things out of context and misinterpret tenets to cause mayhem

        Al-Tirmidhi, Vol. 4, Ch. 21, No. 2687

        It was mentioned by Daraj Ibn Abi Hatim, that Abu al-Haytham ‘Adullah Ibn Wahb narrated from Abu Sa’id al-Khudhri, who heard the Prophet Muhammad PBUH saying, ‘The smallest reward for the people of Heaven is an abode where there are eighty thousand servants and seventy-two houri, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine and ruby, as wide as the distance from al-Jabiyyah to San’a.

        Sunan Ibn Majah, Zuhd (Book of Abstinence) 39

        Abu Umama narrated: “The Messenger of God said, ‘Everyone that God admits into paradise will be married to 72 wives; two of them are houris and seventy of his inheritance of the [female] dwellers of hell. All of them will have libidinous sex organs and he will have an ever-erect penis.’ “

      Syria, Assad, Quran, Islam
      Syrian government announces new standard version of the Quran to counter attempts to “mislead” and “distort” its content.
      Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, has launched a revised Quran which the government said minimised the risk of misinterpretation.

      The “new standard version” reportedly underwent 27 revisions over five years. According to state news agency Sana, the revision “simplified” Quranic letters, which are “sketched with dexterity according to a set of accredited standards that scholars of Quranic science use”.

      Sana did not indicate any changes to Quranic script, nor did it state what misinterpreations the new version aimed to eliminate.

      Any revision of the text of the Quran is considered sacrilegious by most Muslims.

      In the launch ceremony, Assad hailed “the diligent efforts” of the revision committee.

      “We truly need such acts at this critical stage of distortion and misleading when it comes to the Holy Quran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad,” Assad said.

      Syrian state media also reported that the government will send copies of the revised version to Egypt’s al-Azhar university, the pre-eminent seat of Sunni learning, and Arab and Muslim countries.

      The new standard version will be the reference for all printed copies of the Quran in Syria.

      Days after the end of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr, Syrian jets bombed town in Aleppo province on Wednesday, killing at least 18 people, according to a source from civil rescue organisation.

      The source told al-Araby al-Jadeed that the one of the attacks targeted the village of Qasr al-Barij, northeast of Aleppo, which is under IS control.

      An estimated 300,000 people have died in the conflict and Syria has become a theatre of cruelty and impunity.

      RE: Declare War On Pernicious Jihadism

      So Who Supported Them? Who was expecting to gain? USA, Israel, Wahhabi Saudi Arabia, Wahhabi Gulf states, all wanted Syria to be reconstituted with Sunnis and regime change . So declare war on the above sponsors?

      A declassified secret US government document obtained by the conservative public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

      Pentagon report predicted West’s support for Islamist rebels would create ISIS
      Anti-ISIS coalition knowingly sponsored violent extremists to ‘isolate’ Assad, rollback ‘Shia expansion’

    RE: Declare War On Pernicious Jihadism

    “In the aftermath of the Parisian infamy the crucial questions to answer are firstly, why did this happen, and what is the long term solution to this menace?”

    Thank you for your write up. Yes, this is the question to ask.

    This is the Devil, the Iblis, Satan, nurtured, funded and supported by the Wahhabis and their clones, playing havoc, in the World. After All, that is what the Devil wants to do.

    So, just the same way, the LTTE Terrorists were dealt with, the Nazis were dealt with, they need to be destroyed, and the mislead people need to be redirected to thew correct path of humanity, whatever, belief they want to follow.

    There need to be a Global War Against Wahhabism and its Clones. Until then the world and Muslims need to suffer from Iblis following Wahhabi s and their clones Terrorism.

    Another Question to ask is why did God allow for this to happen, as these Terrorists always claim Allahu Akbar, God is Great, when they commit such crimes.

    Are they really following God’s instructions or the Instructions of the Devil, Iblis, Satan, Shaitan?

    You can use reason, given from the references below, to come to your own rational conclusion.

    1. Scholar from al-Azhar: Wahhabism is a Satanic Faith, the Horn of the Devil that Muhammad Predicted

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufxTUFapy1w

    Published on Jun 2, 2013
    Yusri Rushdi al-Sayyid Jabr al-Husni, a Sunni Muslim religious scholar from the world’s oldest and most prestigious Islamic school, the Honorable al-Azhar, has stated that Wahhabis who are also known by other names such as Salafis, Najdis, and Horners, are in fact the Horn of the Devil, a term used by the prophet Muhammad in reference to a satanic faith that shall come out of Najd (Saudi Arabia).

    2. Hadith of Najd

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

    The Hadith of Najd is a famous hadith with several chains of narration about three geographical locations. While all Sunni Muslims accept the group of hadith as authentic, the exact location of the area referred to as “Najd” is disputed.

    A number of authors have claimed that the hadith refers to Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, the patronym of the Wahhabi movement. It is accounted that the origin of Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab is from the modern day Najd region of Saudi Arabia,[15] which happens to be the only surviving region that carried on the title of ‘Najd’ after the geographical codification regardless that there were several distinct locations known previously as ‘Najd’. This theory is generally supported by adherents to other various sects in Sunni Islam [16] as well as Twelver Shi’ism[17] that have disdain for Wahhabism. This is often speculated to be due to the revival of prophetic traditions, strictly clinging to hadith and negating what was seen at the time to be bid‘ah or ‘heretical innovations’, instigated by Ibn Abd al-Wahhab and later carried on by his followers.[18] Contrary to the accusations there are numerical hadith that discredit this argument due to praise of the ethnic tribe of Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, being the Bani Tameem tribe, and praise for the region of what is now known as Najd and its peoples. Through anthropological records it is accounted that the Bani Tamim are the majority of people inhabiting the land of modern day ‘Najd’ in present day Saudi Arabia.

      Remember, your audience should be primarily Muslims.

      Make your case that the Wahhabis and their clones ater really followers of Iblis, Satan. Devil, Shaitan, and they must be rescued from the Devil.

      Further support and references as to the Wahhabis are Devil Followers to mislead the Muslims, Wahhabi-Iblis or Iblis Wahhabis or Wahhabi-Najadis.

      Where is Najd – HORN of SATAN?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbHymIJWMfA

      Published on Dec 5, 2014
      To all the doubters who still think Najd is in Iraq and not in Saudi Arabia.

      You noticed in this video that I quoted from scholars, Muslim geographers such as ibn Kurdadhbah, ibn Hawqal and even ibn Taymiyyah to leave you with no doubt that Najd is an area in modern day Saudi Arabia. Here I will once again quote ibn Taymiyyah so your mind will be at rest on this issue.

      Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah said in commentary of the hadeeth (where the sun rises) in Musnad Ahmad vol. 5, pp. 372-373 which is graded as authentic (QUOTE): “directly east of the city of the Prophet (p) is where Musaylimah the Liar came from – this one who claimed prophethood after the death of the Prophet (p) – and many people followed him. He was fought by Abu Bakr as-Siddiq” (Al-Jawab us-Sahih li-man Baddala din al-Masih, vol. 6, pp. 127-128). Musaylimah came from Al-Yamaamah and as I showed you in this video, that is located within Najd. This proves that Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah UNDERSTOOD Najd to be within the Arabian Peninsula, (modern day Saudi Arabia) and not in Iraq.

      HISTORICAL FACT: all the scholars who lived before the time of Muhammad ibn Abdil-Wahaab who had the title “An-Najdi” attached to their last names, in every case it was always understood that each of those scholars came from Arabia. No scholar who came from Iraq ever had the title “An-Najdi” attached to his last name.

      Now my brief refutation of the claim and evidences used to suggest Najd is in IRAQ.

      Evidence #1
      The hadeeth of ibn Umar reported by Abu Nu’aym in “Hiliya tul Awliya” of Abu Nu’aym al-Isfihani, 6/133. The hadeeth has two particular narrators in it’s Sanad: 1) Abdullah bin Jaami’i al-Halwaani – He is a Mujhool (unknown) narrator and 2) Tawba bin Kisaan – He is thiqa but also considered weak according to some Muhaditheen. So, due these two narrators this hadeeth is actually weak.

      Evidence #2
      The hadeeth of Jabir reported in Sunnan Ibn Majah (English) Vol. 1, Book 25, Hadeeth # 2915, Dar us Salam Publishers (Riyadh Najd) Saudi Arabia]. This hadeeth contains Ibrahim bin Yazeed who is “MATROOK” “DA’EEF” “MUNKAR UL HADITH” and not to forget Imam Bukhari (rah) himself used the wording “Sakatu ‘anhu” regarding him which proves him to be a worst kind of narrator. So, this hadeeth is not authentic.

      Evidence #3
      The hadeeth of ibn Umar reported in “Mu’jam al Awsat” by at-Tabaraanee. The chain contains: 1) Ali bin Sa’eed bin Basheer and 2) Ziyad bin Biyan. They both have weakness and/or are not approved. Hence a chain from them will become weak.

      Evidence #4
      The hadeeth in “Musnad Ahmed” which appears to have an authentic chain. The hadeeth comes via the route of “Handhalah. In this hadeeth Ibn Numayr narrates directly from Handhalah whereas in Sahih Muslim Ibn Numayr narrates this hadeeth from Ishaq bin Suliman first and then Handhalah and this same authentic hadeeth in Sahih Muslim DOES NOT contain the word “IRAQ” but instead uses the word “EAST” (see Sahih Muslim #6942). This same Handhalah is yet again a narrator in another hadeeth chain, and this hadeeth also contains the word “EAST” (see “Akhbar al Makkah” by Al-Fakihi, hadeeth #1123). So it is proven from this same Handhalah that he actually narrated the word “EAST’. Also, this hadeeth (referring to the east) appears to be mistranslated due to the words “Ya’umul Iraq”. However, “Yushero bi Yaddihi Ya’umul Iraq” does not necessarily mean that “he showed Iraq with his hand”. The literal word by word translation could be: “pointed (yushero) with (bi) his hand (yaddihi) “LEADING TOWARDS (YA’UMUL)” Iraq. The word “Ya’umul” proves that pointing was towards a generally eastern direction and not Iraq itself. So, the possible meaning is: “LEADING TOWARDS” Iraq, not Iraq itself.

      Evidence #5
      Sahih Muslim, book 41, hadeeth #6943. The fact that Muslim narrated that Salim ibn `Abd Allah ibn `Umar applied this hadeeth to the people of Iraq does not limit its meaning to them. Let’s say for example that an evil starts out with it’s roots in Najd (modern day Saudi Arabia) but then spreads to other places, like Iraq or Egypt. The ROOT cause of this evil fitnah will still remain in the territory of Najd even if this fitnah will emerge from different places. It stands proven from the Prophet (p) that no matter where this evil emerges from, it will still be condemned. However, the hadeeth seems to imply that the people of Iraq were simply being warned of the “Horn of Satan” that would emerge in Najd (modern day Saudi Arabia), so that they would also not fall into this evil. Allah knows best.

    Thank you for your rational objective opinion column. But please be careful; the hatemongers will write ugly posts here and threaten you for exercising your democratic right to free speech. We have to separate extremism from 1.5Billion odd Muslims. This problem with Boko Haram, ISIS, Al Qaeda are a virulent strain of extremism emanating from one unique school of Wahabi Salafist thought in Saudi Arabia. I am sad that in the west they are now equating Arab ISIS with “muslim” which is patently untrue.

    These are sexually repressed, sub-educated young men with no economic opportinities and no educational opportunities who are being made tools to force people to obey them. It is no different from how the JVP tried to force people in their campaign of terror but mix into this the sad state of Palestine and anger at the Iraqi invasion which started it all, we have a cocktail of deadly terror and anger and nihilistic demented men willing to rape, behead and destroy. They give peaceful Arabs and Muslims across the world like the productive peaceful citizens of Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia a bad name.

    Please be careful in posting views. I am afraid that if ISIS type extremism comes to plague India, Sri lanka, Malaysia etc it will be hell on earth. Sri Lanka is particularly more susceptible than India because of marginalization of poor Muslims and the influx of Saudi tourists.

    The Colonial legacy of what Britain and France did to arbitrarily draw lines in the sand to grab oil and territory are too long to be discussed here. But when you have a Sunni majority in Syria with a Shia regime and a Shia majority in Iraq with a Sunni minority which was marginalized after Saddam was overthrown and their army disbanded by Christian American occupiers it gave way to small groups to recruit people and gather strength. I am not sure if this has any happy or positive ending for anyone in the Arab-Persian Middle East. But you are really right; the absurd conspiracy theorists and hate mongering by some in the columns of CT was sad. You Sir have said it right.

    “It is time to declare a war on Jihadism.”

    It is a well written essay.

    “It is time that this Islam is brought back to the frontal stage.” Islam had it marks on the history. Islam had, having its stain on the history too.

    Man’s needs are food, cloth, shelter, family, education, entertainments, inventions… In that list need for religion is may be the 99th or 100th.
    No Jihadist Buddhsit, No Jihadist Hindus, No Jihadist Christians … No any Jihadist Islams should be revived.

    Which religion has to be revived is noted in the American Constitution 200 years ago. The “secular – Democratic government- religion” (where church is not in the government) is the only one religions should pervade the entire world. UN responsibility is ensuring that will happen.

In islam how ever much the coconut dr amir says no- Jihad is prescribed. Individual as well as collective. This is in the Quran. What Jihad means is war- juristic meaning. Lingust can twist and turn what ever they want.
    If not for Jihad being prescribed in the Quran, all muslims would have just surrendered like the native americans and aborigine of austrlia.Western world including russia and now china are in a materialitic path which will eventually destroy all.

      Iraq is a ARAB Muslim nation. It went to war with Persian Iran in a 9 year disastrous war from 1980 to 89 which ended badly for the Sunni Tribal Saddam Hussein the murderous Arab Sunni Muslim dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people. Sunnis are a minority who were given power by the English rulers to divide and rule. The same Arab Muslim Saddam invaded and occupied Kuwait in 1990 and got thrown out by a coalition of moderate Pro US Arab nations led by US. By 1991 Saddam and his utterly incompetent Muslim Army was routed.

      Jehan,

      Jihad according to western media is holy war. The term Holy War was first coined by Crusades. The arabic term for Holy War is “Harbum Muqaddasa”. That word does not appear anywhere in the Quraan.

      Jihad simply means ‘struggle’. Not war. If you are not convinced google the meaning or listen to Karen Armstrong, a scholar of great repute. She clearly explains the meaning of jihad. She has learnt Arabic and she knows.

      So when you don’t know the language please don’t talk about it.

    All religions are obnoxious because they lead to the same results, torture, sexual repression, arbitrary murder, intolerance, mob rule, and as we have seen throughout history to inevitable war and the inevitable barbarism that descends on humans with war. No religion can claim it is clean and is good. Religion in any form is bad and will continue to stultify the spread of humane behaviour.

    And for the record if you think for a moment there is no underhand activity by Christianity and Jadaism behind the never ending Middle Eastern wars and the war against Islam, you need to think again.

    The human mind is flawed and perverted beyond repair in its inherant will to survive. The human species will become extinct one day just like so many other species due to either a cataclysmic war, disease or most probably due to the degradation of the envioronment. The earth will sigh a sigh of relief the day the last humans disappears from earth.

    This is a good article, specially from a Muslim gentleman. As a Christian, allow me to state a few truths in the Holy Bible. There is a passage that says that ‘Innocent blood calls for vengeance’ but there is another passage that states that vengeance belong to God. We are to treat everyone with love and compassion even as Jesus regarded his tormentors as he waited on the cross. There are two main commandments. One is that we must love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and strength and the other is we must love all our neighbours as ourselves. The reader can carefully analyze these verses.

    Many of us who read the Bible have come to fully appreciate that so long as there is no peace in Jerusalem (Israel) there can be no peace in the world. The world cared not a bit when so many innocent Jews were slaughtered. (Likewise, the killings in Sri Lanka)But the incident in Paris (God rest their souls) is a major news event.

    Finally, “God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son to the end that all who believe in Him should not die but have everlasting life”.

      For hundreds of years the devoted christians have debated the writings in the Bible and reviewed and reformed where necessary. That gives rise to progressing with the times. However, Islam is stuck in the medieval rut and it is considered blasphemous to question the medieval tenets, written in archaic Arabic, subject to as many interpretations as there are sects. Consequently, we have Wahabbism from Saudi Arabia that justifies beheading and amputations for petty crimes and subject women to appalling inequality.

        What do you think about those who live in Bible belt, invoking Right to Bear Arms (modern times 21 century), Ku Klux Klan and lynching, South African whites who justified apartheid based on bible (only 25 years ago), and those management and workers who manufacture lethal weapons, and those who drop nuclear bombs on Japan.

    Sri Lanka is a multi cultural country, and the Muslims have always integrated well, and lived a secular lifestyle.

    Now Wahhabism from Saudi Arabia is influencing many, who now wear the Abaya, and follow the tenets of Wahhabism, becoming more conservative, and withdrawing from the other communities, making it difficult for the Muslims who reject the Saudi Arabian influences. Saudi Arabia is a backward nation, that still has laws that belong to the stone age. They do not allow women to drive, they stone people to death, they have beheaded more people than ISIS, and have a bad record of human rights abuses. So why are Muslims allowing this nation to influence them to this extent. There are so many secular Muslim nations, and none so interfering as SA.

    SA is behind many extremists groups that have attacked Shiite Mosques, killing worshippers, and also wage proxy wars in places like Syria. Sri Lankan Muslims have their own identity, do not need to ape SA, and should refuse to allow such a devious nation to influence their thinking.

    Oil is the main reason for the turmoil in the Middle east. If Iraq was just a desert US would never have invaded Iraq killing Millions of Muslims.

    After the attack on Iraq Al Qaida gained strength and popularity

    Libya was once most developed Country in Africa under Gadafi.It is no secret that internal insurgency in Libya was fueled by France and other western countries with brutal murder of Gadafi. They tried the same game in Syria using IS. It has miserably back fired and spilled all over middle east and beyond.

    Hope Mr. Lateef or is it Professor Lateef or Dr. Lateef will read your column

    Please read the following. Jehan, do you and Lateef want to adjust your hate filled garbage that is spewing from your orifice?

    anti-terror rally planned outside the Grand Mosque of Paris Friday has been canceled because “the security conditions necessary for the holding of a public gathering are not good enough,” Dalil Boubakeur, the mosque’s chairman, said in a statement. Earlier Thursday, Boubakeur decried what he said was ISIS’ perversion of his religion and called for military action against the group’s stronghold in Syria.

    The Terrorist ring leaders father said he is GLAD HIS SON IS DEAD and that his son was evil.

      Dr Amir Ali RE Question by Sengodan. M

      “Why cannot Wahhabism that gave birth to the IS be banned internationally and any country that practices this barbaric Wahhabism be boycotted?”?

      Why? Look at the sponsors. ISIS Has a mother. the invasion of Iraq by USA. But it also has a father: Saudi Arabia , Wahhabism, and its religious-industrial complex.

      Is curing the disease therefore a simple matter? Hardly. Saudi Arabia remains an ally of the West in the many chess games playing out in the Middle East. It is preferred to Iran, that gray Daesh. And there’s the trap. Denial creates the illusion of equilibrium. Jihadism is denounced as the scourge of the century but no consideration is given to what created it or supports it. This may allow saving face, but not saving lives.

      Daesh(ISIS) has a mother: the invasion of Iraq. But it also has a father: Saudi Arabia and its religious-industrial complex. Until that point is understood, battles may be won, but the war will be lost. Jihadists will be killed, only to be reborn again in future generations and raised on the same books.

      The attacks in Paris have exposed this contradiction again, but as happened after 9/11, it risks being erased from our analyses and our consciences.

    Dr.Gnanasangaralingam. your knowledge of Sumerian history is wonderful! “Iraq belongs to Sumerians of Mesopotamian civilization a dark skinned race whose capital was UR.” – Ancestors of Dravidians, you say. “Mesopotamian civilization?”! “Ur was the capital of Sumerians”!
    I say,Ur was the capital of one of the Sumerian city states.So were Eridu, Nippur, Umma,Kish etc. What can you say about the Semitic king Sargon the great( Circ. 2500 B.C.) who subdued the Sumerians and built the Akkadian empire? If you really want to learn something about Sumerians you may read at least the works of Noah Krammer,Thorkild Jakobsen,Henry Frankfort et al. and forget your Dravidian racial nonsense!
