Is Half a Truth Better Than None?

Taken from Mitt Romney’s resignation speech:

And finally, let’s consider the greatest challenge facing America, and for that matter facing the entire civilized world: the threat of radical, violent jihad.

As you know, in one wing of the world of Islam there’s a conviction that all governments should be destroyed and replaced by a religious caliphate. These jihadists will battle any form of democracy because to them democracy is blasphemous, because it says that citizens, not God, shape the law.

They find the idea of human equality to be equally offensive. They hate everything we believe about freedom just as we hate everything they believe about radical jihad.

To battle this threat, we’ve sent the most courageous and brave soldiers in the world.

But their numbers have been depleted by the Clinton years, when troops were reduced by 500,000, when almost 80 ships were retired from our Navy, and when our human intelligence was slashed by 25 percent.

We were told we were getting a peace dividend. We got the dividend; we didn’t get the peace.

In the face of evil and radical jihad, and given the inevitable military ambitions of China, we must act to rebuild our military might, raise military spending to 4 percent of our GDP, purchase the most modern armament, reshape our fighting forces for the asymmetric demands we now face, and give the veterans the care they deserve.

This is as good as we can get from main stream politics, but it is a half-step. But what is needed to make it a full step?

The jihad is not radical. Jihad is mainstream down-the-middle Islamic doctrine. Jihad is the Sixth Pillar of Islam. It is a Pillar because it is incumbent upon ALL Muslims and it is eternal and universal. The attack on September 11, 2001 was according to their play-book. Not one detail deviated from what Mohammed did. In short, 9/11 was Sunna, not radical or extremist.

Unfortunately, jihad is done by the sword, the pen, the mouth and with money. The jihad of blood and fire is the smallest and least dangerous form of jihad. We are in an ideological war of politics. The military is only good for fighting jihad of the sword.

Romney knows something that George Bush does not. Equality before the law, the basis of democracy, is not Sunna (in the way of Mohammed). The entirety of the Islamic doctrine is that humans are NOT politically equal. Bush’s effort to plant democracy in Iraq can only be a short term success at best.

The only way to engage in an ideological fight is to know the ideology of the opposition and Romney does not know the enemy. What is so terrible is that he is the only one who had (past tense, since he has left the race) a clue, even if it was half a clue.

Meanwhile, Islam marches forward. Hillary’s closest advisor is a Saudi woman who went to the schools in Arabia controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood . (The same ones Osama bin Laden attended.) Obama has three of his close advisors who are openly pro-Palestinian. He feels that if the President of the US just sat down and told Muslims how much we love them and want to do anything they would like, then all of the problems would go away. He is of the “they just need a big hug” school. You wonder, since the man was a Muslim up to the age of 10, if he actually believes that.

Oh, and Obama’s church gave Louis Farrakhan an award as a great American. Farrakhan is openly a whitey-hating, Jew-hating Muslim. Actually, the best thing about Farrakhan is his honesty.

So, in conclusion, a half of a truth is better than none. Now, if we only had a candidate in the election who knows the truth.

    I am not a muslim but a Christian. Previously I submitted to you’ll using the book of Quran due to I do not want muslims to fight with non-muslims.

    My declaration implies that you’ll could ignore what I’ve submitted previously and you could do what you’ll like for violence, riots and nothing is to my concern then.

    However, I would still prefer muslims not to stir up society problem then since the Quran’s verses supports that.

    The following are the proofs to show that Holy Quran is against those muslims that do or act or stir up evil against non-muslims:

    a) Holy Quran commands all muslims to obey Quran instead of Sahih Bakhuri, or traditional believes or etc., or else they will be condemned in the hell:

    Quran 4:140, “And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Qur’an) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in hell.” As the phrase, …Qur’an)…when you hear the verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, is mentioned in Quran 4:140 with the phrase, hypocrites and disbelievers, it implies that Allah considers those people that deny and mock at the book of Quran to be the hypocrites and disbelievers. What is the end result of all these people that mock at the book of Quran? The phrase, all together in hell, in Quran 4:140 gives an absolute destiny for those that are against the book of Holy Quran.

    Quran 6:155, “And this is a blessed Book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down, so follow it and fear Allah (i.e. do not disobey His Orders), that you may receive mercy (i.e. be saved from the torment of hell).” This verse conveys a message to us that those that disobey the Qur’an will be tormented in hell. Or in other words, this verse commands all muslims to obey the book of Qur’an undoubtedly.

    Quran 22:57, “And those who disbelieved and belied Our Verses (of this Qur’an), for them will be a humiliating torment (in hell). ” This verse again encourages muslims to believe and obey Quran or else their destiny is in hell.

    Quran 72:17, “That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell). ” Quran 72:17 discourages muslims to disobey Quran or else they will be in a severe torment, hell.

    Quran 42:7, “And thus We have revealed to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه Ùˆ سلم) a Qur’an in Arabic that you may warn the Mother of the Towns (Makkah) and all around it, and warn (them) of the Day of Assembling of which there is no doubt: when a party will be in Paradise (those who believed in Allah and followed what Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه Ùˆ سلم brought them) and a party in the blazing Fire (hell) (those who disbelieved in Allah and followed not what Allah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه Ùˆ سلم brought them). ” The word, Qur’an, is highlighted earliest in Quran 42:7 to show you that this verse is talking about Quran. As the word, hell, is mentioned in Quran 42:7 with the phrase, followed not what Allah Messenger brought them, it implies that those muslims that do not obey Quran will be condemned in the hell.

    What are those things that Allah wants us, muslims, not to be against non-muslims?

    i) ILLEGAL SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NON-MUSLIMS AND MUSLIMS WHETHER SECRET OR OPEN (We are told in that all non-muslims are unclean or impure and that we must not assoicate with them):

    Quan 6:151, “Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): “Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty – We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to Al-Fawahish (shameful sins, illegal sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly; and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to islamic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand. ” The phrase, illegal sexual intercourse whether committed openly, in Quran 6:151 should be muslims marry with non-muslims and for the phrase, illegal sexual intercourse whether committed…secretly, should be muslims have deeper relationship with non-muslims secretly and this is done without marriage and that is so-called, secret. Those muslims that disobey this verse has acted against Quran & its destiny as mentioned in Quran 72:17 is hell.

    2) ALLAH COMMANDS US ONLY TO PREACH TO NON-MUSLIMS INSTEAD OF STIRRING UP TROUBLE WITH THEM, SUCH AS DESTROYING IDOLS, VANDALISM, VIOLENCE AND ETC.:

    Quran 64:12, “Obey Allah and His Messenger, but if ye turn back, then the duty of our Messenger is only to convey (the message) plainly”. The phrase, the duty of our Messenger, in Quran 64:12 implies the responsibility of muslims. The phrase, to convey (the message) plainly, in Quran 64;12 implies preaching to non-muslims. The word, only, in Quran 64;12 has isolated our responsibility. As the phrase, the duty of our Messenger, is mentioned in Quran 64:12 with the phrase, only to convey (the message) plainly, it implies that Allah’s mission for muslims is only to preach instead of fighting, violence, riots and/or etc. Those muslims that act against this verse to stir up problem with non-muslims simply act against Quran. Quran 72:17, “That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).

    3) QURAN 4:90 COMMANDS US NOT TO FIGHT WITH NON-MUSLIMS IF THEY WITHDRAW FROM US AND OFFER US PEACE

    Quran 4:90, “…So if they withdraw from you, and fight not against you, and offer you peace, then Allah has opened no way for you against them”. The phrase, fight not against you, in Quran 4:90 implies that non-muslims do not fight or refuse to fight with us, muslims. The phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, in Quran 4:90 implies that Allah wants us to cease in fighting with them, non-muslims. As the phrase, if they writdraw from you, is mentioned in Quran 4:90 with the phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, it implies that Allah commands muslims not to fight against non-muslims if non-muslims do not or refuse to fight with us, muslims. Those muslims that continue to fight with non-muslims despite non-muslims cease fighting and offer peace with them have acted against Quran 4:90. The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).”

    4) QURAN 6:110 COMMANDS US TO DEAL WITH THOSE NON-MUSLIMS IS TO LEAVE THEM INSTEAD OF CREATING VIOLENCE, RIOTS AND ETC. TO THEM

    Quran 6:110 (Yusuf Ali), “We (too) shall turn to (confusion) their hearts and their eyes, even as they refused to believe in this in the first instance: We shall leave them in their trespasses, to wander in distraction”. Quran 6:110, “(mentions that if)…they refused to believe…we shall leave them in their trespasses (instead of slaughtering them)”. Those muslims that keep on creating trouble to non-muslims even though non-muslims do not stir up trouble with them. The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).”

    5) QURAN 5:32 COMMANDS MUSLIMS NOT TO KILL NON-MUSLIMS UNLESS RETALIATION OF MURDER

    Quran 5:32, “…if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind…” The phrase, not in retaliation of murder, in Quran 5;32 implies that nobody has fought with us and/or slaughter our muslim fellows. The word, anyone, in Quran 5:32 certainly refers to muslims as well as non-muslims since a person, does not restrict itself to only muslims. As the phrase, if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, is mentioned n Quran 5:32 with the phrase, it would be killed all mankind, it implies that it is illegal for muslims to slaughter non-muslims unless they have fought with us and/or we fight as a result of our retaliation of murder with them. Unless non-muslims are those that start to stir up problems with muslims, muslims would defend. However, if non-muslims do not fight with us so as to kill any of us, we must not kill them as mentioned in Quran 5:32. The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).” We, moderate muslims, do not kill non-muslims since non-muslims respect our religion and do not fight with us.

    6) QURAN 54:3 COMMANDS US, MUSLIMS NOT TO DO EVIL DEEDS SINCE WE WOULD BE CONDEMNED TO HELL

    7) QURAN 2:212 COMMANDS US NOT TO FIGHT WHEN NON-MUSLIMS JUST MOCK AT US INSTEAD OF FIGHTING WITH US

    Quan 2:212, “Beautied is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, and they mock at those who believe. But those who obey Allah’s orders and keep away from what has forbidden, will be above them on the Day of Resurrection…” The phrase, those who disbelieve, in Quran 2;212 certainly refers to unbelievers. The word, mock, in Quran 2;212 implies that non-muslims speak badly against muslims. Does Quran 2:212 encourage muslims to fight with these non-muslims that mock at us, muslims? No, since it is mentioned that Quran 2:212, “(we need to)…keep away from what has forbidden” instead of fighting with them. What if those muslims that start to fight even though non-muslims just mock at them but do not start fighting withthem? The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).” We, moderate muslims, do not kill non-muslims since non-muslims respect our religion and do not fight with us.

    8) QURAN 82:14 CONDEMNS EVIL-DOERS AND SINNERS ALSO

    And verily, the Fujjar (the wicked, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners and evil-doers) will be in the blazing fire (Hell), The phrase, sinners and evil doers, in Quran 82:14 commands muslims not to do evil. As muslims are commanded not to do evil deeds, we must not perfom vandalism, riots, violence and etc. too. The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).” We, moderate muslims, do not kill non-muslims since non-muslims respect our religion and do not fight with us.

    9) ONLY THOSE MUSLIMS THAT DO RIGHTEOUS DEEDS (INSTEAD OF THESE INCLUDE THOSE THAT DO EVIL DEEDS, SUCH AS, VANDALISM, RIOTS, VIOLENCE AND ETC.) HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARADISE

    Quran 33:71, “He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the hell-fire and will be admitted to paradise). ”

    10) QURAN 45:21 CONDEMNS THOSE MUSLIMS THAT DO EVIL DEEDS SINCE IT MENTIONS THAT QURAN 45:21, “….THINK THAT…SHALL HOLD THEM EQUAL THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND DO RIGHTEOUS GOOD DEEDS…(THEIR THINKING ARE WRONG SINCE)…WORST IS THE JUDGMENT THAT THEY MADE

    Quran 45:21, “Or do those who earn evil deeds think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, in their present life and after their death? Worst is the judgement that they make.”

    WE, MODERATE MUSLIMS, HOPE THAT ALL RELIGIONS IN THIS WORLD MUST RESPECT EACH OTHER THAT THERE WOULD BE PEACE IN THIS WORLD

    Quran 54:3, “They belied (the Verses of Allah – this Qur’an), and followed their own lusts. And every matter will be settled (according to the kind of deeds: good deeds will take their doers to Paradise, and similarly evil deeds will take their doers to hell). ” The phrase, evil deeds will take their doers to hell, in Quran 54:3 commands all muslims not to do evil deeds. The warning from Quran 72:17, “(for those that disobey Quran is) That We might try them thereby. And whosoever turns away from the Reminder of his Lord (i.e. this Qur’an, – and practise not its laws and orders), He will cause him to enter in a severe torment (i.e. hell).” We, moderate muslims, do not kill non-muslims since non-muslims respect our religion and do not fight with us.

    The definition of Jihad can be found in Quran 9:60. let’s us browse throught the verse as follows:

    Quran 9:60, “As-Sadaqat (here it means zakat) are only for the Fuqara’ (poor), and Al-Masakin (the poor), and those employed to collect (the funds), and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam), and to free the captives, and for those in debts, and FOR ALLAH’S CAUSE (i.e. fo5r Mujahidun – those who fighting in a HOLY BATTLE), and for the wayfarer (a traveler who is cut off from everything); A DULY IMPOSED BY ALLAH. And allah is All knower, All wiser”.

    Three elements have been mentioned pertaining to the word, jihad and there are:

    a) Jihad should be meant for Allah’s cause. Or in other words, this battle should be directed by Allah. Only when Allah has given us instruction to fight, then we trigger off the war. If Allah says, ‘no’, we, muslims, must stop fighting. Quran 4:90, “so IF THEY WITHDRAW FROM YOU, AND FIGHT NOT AGAINST YOU,, and offer you peace, THEN ALLAH HAS OPENED NO WAY FOR YOU AGAINST THEM”. As the phrase, If they”fight not against you, is mentioned in Quran 4:90 with the phrase, Allah has opened no way for you against them, it implies that Allah discourages muslims to fight when non-muslims offer peace and stop fighting with them. However, the current situation is different since muslim extremists trigger off the battle against non-muslims even when non-muslims do not start fight with them. Bear in mind for Quran 4:90 that mentions that once non-muslims stop fighting, muslims must stop since Allah has opened no way for us, muslims, against them.

    b) Jihad should be meant for Holy War. As the word, holy, is mentioned, it implies that this war should not be evil. The war that is against non-muslims when non-muslims are the first to fight with us, muslims or to destroy our mosques. This war is considered to be holy since we, muslims, intend to protect our people, muslim fellows and our mosques. The war that is against non-muslims that non-muslims are not the first to fight with us. This war is not to be considered as holy since non-muslims do not fight and yet we, muslims, are the first to fight and that we have violated Quran 4:90 that mentions that muslims must stop fighting when non-muslims cease in fight. Muslim extremists have acted against Quran 4:90 since they fight when non-muslims have stopped their fighting against them.

    c) Jihad should be a duty imposed by Allah as mentioned in the verse. Or in other word, muslims only fight when we, muslims, receive clearly instruction from Allah. If Allah calls us to stop or Allah does not give any instruction for us to fight, we, muslims, must stop fighting.
