Behold the Koran's doctrines applied in today's terror war.
To anyone familiar with Muslim doctrine, Pfc. Naser Jason Abdos actions from refusing to deploy to Afghanistan lest he kill fellow Muslims to plotting a terror attack to kill fellow Americans make perfect sense and accord well with Islams dichotomous doctrine of wala wa bara, often translated as loyalty and enmity.
Built atop numerous Koran verses and backed by Sharia, wala requires Muslims to be loyal to fellow Muslims, and explains why Abdo refused to deploy to Muslim nations.
While loyalty may appear admirable, it has a flipside, bara, which requires Muslims to disassociate themselves from non-Muslims to be disloyal to them (see al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiris 60 page treatise titled Loyalty and Enmity in The Al Qaeda Reader for details).
For example, Koran 5:51 literally warns Muslims against taking the Jews and Christians as friends and allies whoever among you takes them for friends and allies, he is surely one of them, i.e., he becomes an infidel; 58:22 states that true Muslims do not befriend non-Muslims even if they be their fathers, sons, brothers, or kin.
Now consider the progress of Abdo and how his actions reveal great doctrinal consistency:
First, he objected to participating in any war in any Muslim country, claiming conscientious objector status:
I dont believe I can involve myself in an army that wages war against Muslims. I dont believe I could sleep at night if I take part, in any way, in the killing of a Muslim. I cant deploy with my unit to Afghanistan and participate in the war I cant both deploy and be a Muslim.
He would not be the first to object to combating fellow Muslims: Major Nidal Hasan, who went on a shooting spree in Fort Hood in 2009, killing thirteen and who Abdo heroizes considered himself to be a Muslim first and an American second; the idea of deploying to a Muslim nation, his worst nightmare, threw him over the edge. Then there was Sergeant Hasan Akbar, who killed two American soldiers and wounded fourteen in Kuwait because he was concerned U.S. troops would kill fellow Muslims in Iraq.
Next, though Abdo had no problem openly evincing loyalty to Muslims, trusting that tolerant or sentimental Americans would indulge him, he hid his enmity and disloyalty for those same Americans, in accordance to taqiyya a doctrine that permits Muslims to deceive infidels. In fact, the Korans primary justification for deception is in the context of loyalty and enmity:
Let believers not take for friends and allies infidels [non-Muslims] instead of believers. Whoever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah unless you but guard yourselves against them, taking precautions (3:28).
Mainstream Muslim reference Tabari interprets this verse thusly:
Only when you are in their [non-Muslims] power, fearing for yourselves, are you to demonstrate friendship for them with your tongues, while harboring hostility toward them. But do not join them in the particulars of their infidelities, and do not aid them through any action against a Muslim.
Accordingly, while Abdo did not aid Americans against Muslims, he certainly made use of his tongue: to support his conscientious objector status, he pointed to the peace that Islam preaches; he claimed that he wanted to fight Islamophobia and put a good positive spin out there that Islam is a good, peaceful religion; and though he tried to murder Americans by emulating the Fort Hood massacre, Abdo originally condemned it, calling it an act of aggression by a man and not by Islam, insisting that it ran against his beliefs as a Muslim.
Even so, anyone reading between the lines should have noticed his enmity: like Hasan before him, who made no secret of his hatred for infidels in statements in front of classmates, Abdo also made anti-American remarks in class.
Unfortunately, few Americans are aware of doctrines like wala wa bara and taqiyya; worse, they often project their own beliefs and values from Christianity to secular humanismonto Islam and Muslims.
For instance, Western people associate piety and religious observance with peace and goodwill: as with Hasan before him who was described as an observant Muslim who prayed daily and very serious about his religion acquaintances shocked at Abdos terror plot argue that he was very devoutly religious.
Yet, the fact is there is no inconsistency between piety and prayer on the one hand, and jihad and deceit on the other: all are equally codified in Sharia. Moreover, upholding one doctrine often leads to upholding another: thus loyalty to fellow Muslims is a sure sign of disloyalty to non-Muslims.
Same with SOBama.
Wow, a religion which manages to be even more repugnant than Scientology...but apparently populated by folks with about the same IQ.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM ON 9/11
Why would any rational person be tolerant of and nondiscriminatory toward any Moslim? Even if they say they agree with American principles, how does one know whether or not they are lying?
In my humble opinion we’re neglecting the central issue here; and it isn’t the details of Q’uranic doctrine.
Clearly, this Abdo kid joined the U.S. Army from the beginning, specifically to make trouble. Like gay martyr Bradley Manning and fellow jihadist Maj. Hasan, he dedicated his energies to seeing how much havoc he could raise in his command and get away with.
In this politically-correct army, he was clearly allowed to get away with a great deal. Expect to see many more like him.
I’m personally guessing he decided to go AWOL and terrorist only after he got caught for child porn and was awaiting an other than honorable discharge.
As long as lowlifes like this bunch are allowed to make the military their political platform-with-a-day-job we can expect to see the military become the preferred career choice for politicized misfits.
You probably could get a clue from their behavior
Just play it safe and assume they are lying because you will probably be right.
Yeah, that was the major problem I had with the 'takiya' principles that they inscribe in their (un)holy books...
How can you possibly know that they are sincere when their books tell them to lie their collective asses off if it will further their great cause?
They really might be sincere - but we can't know. Its impossible to know.
A heckuva Catch-22.
I prefer the Book written by God.
HE doesn't approve of deception -- unlike the Father of Lies (the ghost-writer of the koran).
Proverbs 12:22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
George Bush said this was a religion of peace, I guess a few just didn’t catch on. Also that boy doesn’t look like he has a lot of brain cells.
What a load of crap! If a muslim can't find a decent human to kill, they turn on each other at the drop of a hat.
In a "perfect" muslim world, the infidel would all be dead, the muslim would have turned on each other, and there would be only one of them left standing. He would then kill himself. allah would be proud!
The question is do Americans who want a Muslim Free America realize that Obama is a Muslim plant who is pushing everything that hurts America?
It appears Obama's next big goal is the UN taking Israel land and making a Palistinian state. The Israel defenders in Congress are already lining up to defund the UN if Obama does NOT block the UN's illegal move.
Libya is over the top but an attack on Israel by the UN should seal the deal. Congress will then have no choice but to start Impeachement. The Senate will have to convict him or it will hit the fan.
Obama is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and even wants to give Egypt US TANKS! Try to explain Libya and Egypt without factoring in a Radical Muslim President as an explanation for Obama's insanity.
Just plug in OBAMA IS A MUSLIM MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE and everything makes perfect sense.
