Islam the three stages of Jihad, Part 2
Putting Islam Under the Microscope
Americans, unfortunately, are woefully ignorant about the so-called ‘religion’ of Islam. First, it is not merely just another religion like Christianity, Judaism, or Buddhism. It is much more. Islam is a political, militaristic, and religious system. Second, the intent of Islam is to eventually rule, to subjugate the entire world. The video that will be the focus of this series of articles is called, “Three Stages of Islam.” It was created by AnsweringMuslims.com. It is extremely insightful and educational. It lays bare the purposes and the schemes of this cruel and insidious fascist system. It is every bit as pernicious, threatening, and evil as communism.I would encourage every American to educate himself or herself on this vital subject. The fact is that Islam is the enemy of the United States. Like Marxism and secular humanism that have crept into our culture and taken over many of our institutions, including our education system and has corrupted it beyond recognition, Islam is the second battlefront we face. It is one we must engage. Islam has begun to infiltrate our culture and to indoctrinate Americans as to its real purpose and intent.
Watch and listen carefully to this video and read the transcripts of the video as they are presented here. You will be better equipped to confront the evil and to curtail its advance in this nation. Today we examine the first of the three stages of Jihad. You can see the first part of this series here.
Transcript 2:40 –9:18 minute mark on the video:
Barack Obama is quoted, “The partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t.”STAGE ONE – STEALTH JIHAD
When Muslims are completely outnumbered and can’t possibly win in a physical confrontation with unbelievers, they’re commanded to promote peace with non-Muslims and to preach a message of tolerance.
For instance, when Mohammed and his followers were a persecuted minority in Mecca they criticized the beliefs of the polytheists, but they did so peacefully. The revelations Mohammed received during this time proclaimed a future judgment for unbelievers. Allah will one day punish those who rejected Mohammed, but in the meantime to each his own. Live and let live, co-exist.
A characteristic chapter from this period is
Qur’an 109 – Say: O unbelievers! I do not serve that which you serve, nor do you serve Him whom I serve: Nor am I going to serve that which you serve, nor are you going to serve Him whom I serve: You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion.
Muslims in the West point to passages like this, as evidence that Islam is inherently peaceful. But we know from Muslim sources that while Mohammed was calling for religious tolerance in Mecca, he was already planning to conquer the world in the name of Allah. He even tried to lure pagans to Islam by promising them victory over the non-Arabs. Let’s look at a passage. One day some of his Mohammed’s tribesmen went to his uncle Abu Talib because they wanted to arrange a truce with Mohammed. They wanted Mohammed to stop criticizing their beliefs. Watch what happens.
At Tabari, Volume VI, p. 95 – Abu Talib sent for the messenger of Allah, and when he came in he said, “Nephew here are the shaykhs and nobles of your tribe. They have asked for justice against you, that you should desist in reviling our gods and they will leave you to your god.” “Uncle,” he said, “shall I not summon them to something which is better for them than their gods?” “What do you summon them to do?” he asked…
He replied, “I summon them to utter a saying through which the Arabs will submit to them and they will rule over the non-Arabs.” Abu Jahl said from among the gathering, “What is it, by your father? We will give you it and ten like it?” He answered, “That you should say, ‘There is no deity but Allah.”
Think about this for a moment. Mohammed is walking around Mecca calling for peace and tolerance. But behind closed doors, he tells the guys, ‘join me, and we’ll rule over the non-Arabs (Jews, Christians, Persians, etc.) These groups aren’t attacking Mohammed at all, and he is already planning to conquer them.
What does he need to subjugate the non-Muslims? He needs an army. So he asks his tribe to convert to Islam.
Now, how many times have we seen Muslim groups in the world today, calling for tolerance in public, but saying something completely different in private? It goes back to Mohammed.
One of the key features of Stage One (Jihad) is TAQIYYA – CONCEALING ISLAM’S TRUE INTENTIONS IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY. This was eventually made explicit in Surah 3:28.
Qur’an 3:28 – Let not the believers (in Islam) take disbelievers as friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security.
Muslims are not allowed to be friends, unless they are outnumbered and they feel they are in danger from a stronger adversary. That’s when Muslims are told to pretend to be friendly. One of Islam’s greatest scholars Ibn Kathir comments:
Ibn Kathir – “In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship outwardly but never inwardly.”
Abu Darda, one of Mohammed’s companions put it this way:
Abu Darda – “We smile in the face of some people althouh our hearts curse them.”
Another key feature of stage one is ‘victim status.’ Muslims like to pretend that Mohammed and his followers were persecuted in Mecca simply because they were Muslims. Total nonsense, they were persecuted for antagonizing the Meccans by mocking their beliefs. We read in
At-Tabari, Volume 6, pg. 93 – The messenger of Allah proclaimed Allah’s message openly and declared Islam publically to his fellow tribesman. When he did so, they did not withdraw from him or reject him in anyway … until he spoke of their gods and denounced them. When he did this, they took exception to it and united in opposition and hostility to him, except for those of them whom Allah had protected from error by means of Islam.
Notice that the pagans of Mecca had no problem with Mohammed preaching Islam. They became angry when he began attacking their beliefs and they had to put up with quite a bit. Listen to this description of what the pagans went through in their own words:
At-Tabari, volume 6, pg. 101 – “We have never seen the like of what we have endured from this man. He has derided our traditional values, abused our forefathers, reviled our religion, caused division among us, and insulted our gods. We have endured a great deal from him.”
Mohammed was condemning their beliefs and their values. He was causing division in the city. Not too extreme from a Western perspective. What’s interesting is that when the people of Mecca responded in kind and mocked Islam. Muslims said, “Oh, they’re persecuting us. What evil people, attacking us because of our beliefs. Double standards, one of the goals of the stealth Jihad stage is to give Islam a privileged status above other religions.
But Mohammed’s constant antagonism toward the Meccans did lead to actual persecution. And this persecution of the early Muslim community was the best thing that ever happened to Islam. When people heard of poor defenseless Muslims were being mistreated, they rushed to Mohammed’s aid. The Christians as Abyssinia, the Jews of Medina and various pagan groups all agreed, at one time or another, to protect Muslims from the mean bigoted Islamaphobes in Mecca.
Now keep in mind, Mohammed was already planning to conquer all of these people. But they did not know that, all they knew was that Muslims were being persecuted and they wanted to help.
Once Mohammed and his followers had formed enough alliances and were no longer at the mercy of the Meccans, the message of the Qur’an suddenly changed.To be continued
