Jihad means to war against non-Muslims by WHATEVER IT TAKES to establish the religion of Islam. It has many forms, most of them not violent but subtle, gradual, and long-term. Mohammed says in the Hadiths (his reported sayings): “War is deceit” (Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52:269).
This embodies the same idea as Sun Tzu expounds in the Art of War:
“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.” [I, Laying Plans: 18-19]
Koran 2:193 instructs Muslims “Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah (meaning disbelief, discord, persecution) and [until] religion [i.e., worship] is [acknowledged to be] for Allah…” [King Fahd Saheeh International translation, Jeddah.] This chapter of the Koran is from Medina and is not abrogated; the idea is that jihad is a permanent activity that continues until ALL religion is for Allah. Islam does not want to share the world, but to be the world.
Jihad is obligatory on Muslims. Koran 9:39 says: “If you do not go to war, He will punish you sternly, and will replace you by other men …”
whatever it takes
WHATEVER IT TAKES covers a multitude of strategies other than violent warfare and terrorism. These include:
- Migration jihad – invasion of the West
- Womb jihad – outbreeding Westerners
- Stealth jihad – infiltrating political groups and government, including inserting Islamic sympathizers into the media (eg ABC, SBS)
- Educational jihad – corrupting and ‘refocusing’ education curriculums and materials, establishing Islamic schools and university centres with Saudi money
- DAWAH – outreach and proselytization, including distribution of millions of Korans
- “INTERFAITH” talkfests – ecumenical jihad, in which only the non-Muslim side has an open mind.
- Financial jihad: Sharia finance; Halal Certification racket to raise funds for jihad
- Using our own institutions and freedoms against us, through lawfare (anti-discrimination)
- Civilizational Jihad – Suppressing Christmas and Easter as “offensive” while promoting Islamic festivals (Ramadan, Eid); demanding “multicultural” grants for Islamic Museums and community centres; banning sale or serving of pork and alcohol; demanding Muslim prayer rooms at public venues; Muslim-only special facilities in swimming pools and publicly funded Muslim washrooms in universities; demanding that non-Muslim women cover up or be labelled sluts and raped; calling for recognition of polygamy and sharia judgments in divorces and wills.
Dawah looks like harmless missionary activity but its aim is to convert non-Muslims to political (supremacist, intolerant) Islam and to make Muslims more radical.
Some dawah merchants have become active jihadis:
The ultimate aim of dawah is to destroy the political institutions and freedoms of our Western society and to replace them with Islamic sharia law. The real agenda is this:
Interfaith – ecumenical jihad!
Sayyid Qutb, leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood (Egypt 1906-1966), sums up perfectly in his book Milestones (1964) the uncompromising Islamic attitude toward dialogue with other faiths:
Interfaith dialogue is regarded by Muslims not as a striving for peace and understanding but as ecumenical jihad – non-violent war to convert to Islam.
Christians who engage in this fruitless activity are Useful Idiots. In the New Testament, Paul calls it out very plainly:
In Melbourne, a Christian group tries to counteract Islamic dawah by evangelizing to Muslims. There needs to be much more of this!
