Halal Slaughter of British Soldier on London Street Is Islam
About the horrific public beheading of a British soldier on a London Street to the shouts of “Allahu Akbar” by 2 Muslim men, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Dtkp_nUumqM) Ahmed Jama (26), a Muslim, said: "Screaming ‘Allah-hu-Akbar’ and killing innocent people is nothing to do with Islam." Similarly, the Muslim Council of Britain that represents Britain’s 2.5 million Muslims, said in a statement that it was “a barbaric act that has no basis in Islam.” So said David Cameron, Britain’s Prime Minister: “There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”
But if Islam’s sacred scriptures and its 1400-year-old history are to be given any credence, then the religion of Islam has everything to do with this horrific murder.
These two Muslims just followed the teachings of the Quran and the Sunna of Prophet Muhammad. The Quran orders Muslims: “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the infidels wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go]…”
Prophet Muhammad used to give similar command for unconditional killing of the non-Muslims of his time. As per such commands of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad, we know of a Jewish merchant of Medina, named Sunayna, who had fallen on the path of Muhammad’s disciple named Muhayyisa, and Muhayyisa fell upon him and claimed his life. Here is the story from Ibn Ishaq’s biography of Muhammad (The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 369):
THE AFFAIR OF MUHAYYISA AND HUWAYYISA
The apostle said, 'Kill any Jew that falls into your power.' Thereupon Muhayyisa b. Mas'vid leapt upon Ibn Sunayna (579), a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. Huway-yisa was not a Muslim at the time though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed him Huwayyisa began to beat him, saying, 'You enemy of God, did you kill him when much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth?'
Muhayyisa answered, 'Had the one who ordered me to kill him ordered me to kill you I would have cut your head off.' He said that this was the beginning of Huwayyisa's acceptance of Islam. The other replied, 'By God, if Muhammad had ordered you to kill me would you have killed me?' He said, 'Yes, by God, had he ordered me to cut off your head I would have done so.' He exclaimed, 'By God, a religion which can bring you to this is marvellous!' and he became a Muslim….
Muhayyisa composed the following lines on the subject:
My mother's son blames me because if I were ordered to kill him
I would smite his nape with a sharp sword
A blade white as salt from polishing.
My downward stroke never misses its mark.
It would not please me to kill you voluntarily
Though we owned all Arabia from north to south.
Apart from this, Prophet Muhammad himself had socked his hands with the blood of thousands of non-Muslims of Arabia. He used to attack the non-Muslim communities of the Arab Peninsula that refused to embrace his religion and leadership. And on many occasions, he used to kill them en masse – for example, the mass killing of the males of the Banu Quraiza, Banu Mustaliq and Banu Nadir (at Khaybar) tribes. On each of these occasions, Muhammad had publicly beheaded hundreds of people, 600-900 in the case of Banu Quraiza (see Ibn Ishaq, p. 461-470, 490-493, 510-519). The Prophet had initiated the mass slaughter of Banu Quraiza men by beheading two of the chieftains with his own hands.
In condemning the barbaric murder, MCB further said, “No cause justifies this murder”, adding that the “vast majority of British Muslims acknowledge the armed forces for the work they do.”
Minister Cameron added: “This view is shared by every community in our country. This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life; it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country.”
It is not the Muslim thugs who betrayed Islam, but it is the politicians like Prime Minister Cameron, who are betraying the British people, because this beheading was not a betrayal of Islam, but is perfectly in sync with its teachings as illustrated above. Beheading, even mass murder, of the infidels is commanded by the Quran, which is also a Sunnah of the Prophet of Islam.
The only statement of truth regarding this horrific murder comes from the mouth of one of the very murderers, who in a recorded video said:
"But we are forced by the Qur'an, in Sura At-Tawba, through many ayah in the Qu'ran, we must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
Maybe Prime Minister Cameron should consult following passages from the Quran to make an educated assessment about how Islamic this murder is, and how correct the murderer was in claiming the same:
5:33 “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution (by beheading), or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;”
8:12 “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off.”
47:4 “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), strike off their heads; at length; then when you have made wide Slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives”: thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens.”
9:123 "Oh ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers and let them find harshness in you.”
2:191 “Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out.”
5: 45 “We ordained therein for them: “Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear. Toth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal.”
2:193 “Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah”
9:29 "Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day... and fight People of the Book, (Christian and Jews) who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute (Zizziya tax) by hand, being inferior.”
8:17 "It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God’s…..” (Allah is a real merciful indeed!)
Islamic scriptures as well as history tell us that this murder is in perfect synchrony with the teachings of Islam and instances of the Prophet. Prophet Muhammad was the first savage of Islam, who patronized such murders, albeit on a larger scale. Until our leaders recognize and acknowledge this fact, instead of shamelessly lying for the sake of exonerating Islam from its complicity in such barbaric acts, they will keep betray the people and those victims. And such Halal Islamic barbarism will continue haunting the infidels of the world.
