The Jihad Dilemma – Jobless, Joyless, or Jihadist

Whenever a home grown terror attempt or actual attack by a Muslim person takes place, somehow certain media outlets overlook the mention of important details in connection with the terror suspect, such as his/her religious affiliation with Islam and its implication on his/her action.

It is unfortunate that political correctness has gone as far as sensitizing the public to the point of overlooking such important facts, which are crucial for our understanding of motives behind such heinous actions, and vital in helping us control our reaction
towards innocent Muslims who belong to the terrorist’s culture and/or community
of faith.

Almost all homegrown terror attempts or attacks since 9/11 are committed by devout Muslims or converts to Islam who felt compelled to conduct such operations in the name of the god of Islam. Often time, they were US citizens whose allegiance was to their god over their country’s constitution (such as Major Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood, TX).

In light of such disturbing observations, we must ask ourselves a very important
question: What transforms such individuals from peaceful to peace-less?

The recent alleged foiled terror plot by a Moroccan named Amine El Khalifi serves as a classic example of such alarming trend (see this news report:

The suspect who has been living in the US since 2009 thought he was in the process of committing a major act of terror to make the US government suffer the consequences for its tightened security operations against Radical Muslims. In other words, to him this is an operation by which he will make the US government pay back for securing the very freedom afforded him, by attacking one of its very symbols of civil liberty; the US Capitol. To him, this was the only way he knew he can proof the US government wrong concerning its view against RADICAL MUSLIMS [like him]!

But why this type of violence? What would cause someone to turn 180 degrees against the very place that sheltered and protected him? Unfortunately, the answer is not what many in the media would want to hear; simply put; it is his Islamic religious mandates that ignited in him such hate, passion, and aspiration.

The Qur’an, the Muslims holy book and the foundational document for Sharia Law, is filled with one command after another for a TRUE MUSLIM to carry out a terror attack against unbelievers [i.e. Westerners, Christians, Jews, etc…]. A quick survey of such violent verses reveals a very disturbing theme of commands in a clear language enough to ignite an act of terror within the hearts of many TRUE followers of and converts to Islam. The list of verses below serves as a sample of such theme:

Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.

Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you. . .”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers. . .”

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them

Quran (9:123) – “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness.”

With open-ended commands as these, how can we escape the fear of more future terror attacks and/or attempts? After all, those who carry out such acts are motivated by a religious theology and ideology that is designed to create fear in the hearts of those who do not follow Islam or accept its teachings and law. Yet, despite the clarity and bluntness of such commands, and the ease of accessibility to it, the majority of media overlooks such vivid reality for the sake of preserving a sacred belief called “Political Correctness“!

The next time you hear in the news that a terror attack plot was foiled and the suspect belongs to an Islamic country, or bears an Islamic name, or was a convert to Islam; pretend you know nothing about Islam and its straightforward divine imperatives to commit such violence against non-Muslims, otherwise you could be labeled as insensitive and beget. After all, our freedom, safety, and security do not worth such bluntness and courage on your part!

That’s the real dilemma!
