24: THE DOUBLE MINDED RESPONSE OF ISLAM
TO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER WHICH IS
DECLARATION OF ISLAMIC JIHAD
By Steve Van Nattan
I have told you that Islam will speak
sweet words to the Kaffir (non-Muslim) when it suits them, and they will lie to
gain the advantage. Part One below is a Fatwa and the lie of an Islamic Mullah
who is trying to put a compassionate construction on the declaration of war against
the United States by world Islam on September 11, 2001.
is a previous Fatwa by Mufti: Dr. Yusuf Abdullah Al-Qaradâwi, and it shows his
true passion of hate for the United States of America. I am delighted to catch
this viper in his words, and I hope none of you "tolerant" and "loving"
idiots will ever again swallow the sweet words of the Muslim disinformation machine.
Three is the Fatwa of the dog Osama bin Laden setting the stage in Islamic fashion
for the death of the innocents in the World Trade Center. Let us all pray for
the soon death of this animal and his helpers.
These Mullahs and
Sheiks in the USA, Canada, and the UK speak softly to the Kaffir in order to make
them believe Islam is compassionate. LIE! These creeps are far from Mecca and
the Al Aksa Mosque, for if you were in the Middle East, you would have seen Muslims
dancing in the streets in joy at the death of the Americans in the World Trade

The Fatwa of Mufti:
Dr. Yusuf Abdullah Al-Qaradâwi on the
attack on the World Trade Center
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious,
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace
and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In his commentary on the latest
attacks on America, the well-known Muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, states
Truly, our hearts bleed for the attacks that have
targeted the World Trade Center (WTC) as well as other institutions in the United
States despite our strong opposition to the American-biased policy towards Israel
on the military, political and economic fronts.
Islam, the religion
of tolerance, holds the human soul in high esteem, and considers an attack against
innocent human beings a grave sin. This is backed by the Qur'anic verse which
reads: "Whosoever kills a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption
in the earth, it shall be as if be had killed all mankind, and whosoever saves
the life of one, it shall be as if he had: saved the life of all mankind." (Al-Ma'dah:32)
The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, is reported to have
said, "A believer remains within the scope of his religion as long as he doesn't
kill another person illegally."
Haphazard killing where the rough
is taken with the smooth and where innocents are killed along with the wrongdoers
is totally forbidden in Islam. No one, as far as Islam is concerned, is held responsible
for the actions of others. Upon seeing a woman killed in the battlefield, the
Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, renounced the act and said: "That woman
shouldn't have been killed anyway!"
Even at times of war Muslims
are not allowed to kill anybody save the one who is indulged in face-to-face confrontation
with them. They are not allowed to kill women, elderly, children, or even a monk
in his religious seclusion.
That is why killing hundreds of helpless
civilians who have nothing to do with the decision-making process and are striving
hard to earn their daily bread, such as the victims of the latest explosions (in
the U.S.) is a heinous crime in Islam. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon
him, is reported to have stated that a woman was qualified to enter Hell because
of the cat she locked up and starved to death.
If this is the ruling
applied in protecting animals, no doubt, aggression against human beings, deserves
greater protection, for human beings are honored by Allah Almighty and are His
vicegerents on earth?
We Arab Muslims are the most affected by
the grave consequences of hostile attack on man and life. We share the suffering
experienced by innocent Palestinians at the hands of the tyrannical Israeli entity
who raze the Palestinian homes to the ground, set fire to their land, kill them
in cold, and leave innocent orphans wailing behind.
With this in
mind, the daily life in Palestine has become a permanent memorial gathering. When
Palestinians face such unjust aggression, they tend to stem bloodletting and destruction
and not claim the lives of innocent civilians.
go against any committed Muslim embarking on such attacks. Islam never allows
a Muslim to kill the innocent and the helpless.
If such attacks
were carried out by a Muslim - as some biased groups claim - then we, in the name
of our religion, renounce the act and incriminate the perpetrator. We do confirm
that the aggressor deserves the deterrent punishment irrespective of his religion,
race or gender.
What we warn against - even if it becomes a reality
- is to hold a whole nation accountable for a crime that was carried out by a
small group of people, or to characterize a certain religion as one that supports
violence and terrorism.
When the well-known Oklahoma incident was
carried out by a Christian American who was driven by personal interests, neither
Christianity, America or even the Christian world were accused of the attack because
a Christian masterminded it.
I have been asked several questions
on television and on public lectures about the martyr operations outside the Palestinian
territories, and I always answer: "I do agree with those who do not allow such
martyr operations to be carried outside the Palestinian territories. Instead we
should concentrate on facing the occupying enemy directly. It is not permissible,
as far as Islam is concerned, to shift confrontation outside the Palestinian territories.
This is backed by the Qur'anic verse that reads: "Fight in the way of Allah against
those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loves not, aggressors."
May Allah guide you to the straight path and direct you to that
which pleases Him, Amen.
Allah Almighty knows best.

Title of Fatwa: Boycotting Israeli and American Goods
Dr. Yusuf Abdullah Al-Qaradâwi
Fatwa: Are we allowed to buy items from Israeli sources, even though this money
may be used to help the Jewish “war machine”?
Mufti: Dr. Yusuf Abdullah

Reply: Fatwa on Boycotting Israeli and American Goods
Based on the proofs of the Book and Sunnah and Consensus of the Ummah.
is Jihad to liberate the Islamic lands from those who attack or conquer them.
Editor: Steve Van Nattan: In
the context of what follows, the Mufti is clearly claiming that Israel is an Islamic
land and the Jews are impostors. The policy of Islam still remains that the Jews
must be driven into the sea and killed. Yassir Arafat has made that very clear,
and he has never retracted it. We believe he is serious. All sweet blabber to
the Kaffir to the contrary is disinformation for temporary use only.
are enemies of Islam.
This Jihad is an absolute obligation
and a sacred duty; firstly on the people of that land. If the Muslims of
that land can’t offer sufficient resistance, then Muslims of neighbouring countries
are obliged to assist. If this is still not sufficient then all the Muslims of
the world must assist. Palestine is the land of the first Qibla of the Muslims,
the land of Isra and Miraj, the land of Al-Aqsa and the blessed territory.
conquerors are those with the greatest enmity to the believers, and they are supported
by the strongest state on earth - the USA, and by the world Jewish community.
Jihad is obligatory against those who take
land and expel the inhabitants, spill the blood, violate the honour, destroy the
houses, burn the fields, and corrupt the land.
is the first obligation of all obligations, and the first duty of the Ummah.
Muslims are commanded to do this, first those from the land in question, after
that their neighbours, and finally all Muslims.
must all be united against the others. We are united in Islam, including
unity of belief in the Shari’ah, unity of belief in the Qibla, and also united
in pain and hope.
As God (Allah) says: “Verily this Ummah of yours
is one Ummah” (Qur’an, 21:92). God (Allah) also says: “Surely the
believers are a single brotherhood” (Qur’an, 49:10). There is a Hadith
of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, : “The Muslim is the brother
to the Muslim, he can’t oppress him, he can’t give him up, he can’t let him down.”[transmitted
by Musalm]. Now we see our brothers and children in Al-Aqsa and the blessed land
of Palestine generously sacrificing their blood, giving their souls willingly
in the way of God. All Muslims must help them with whatever power they have. (See
the Noble Qur’an, 8:72).
If people ask in the name
of religion we must help them. “Help each other with good things and taqwa”.
The vehicle of this support is a complete boycott of the enemies’ goods. Each
riyal, dirham …etc. used to buy their goods eventually becomes bullets to be fired
at the hearts of brothers and children in Palestine. For this reason it is an
obligation not to help them (the enemies of Islam) by buying their goods. To buy
their goods is to support tyranny, oppression and aggression. Buying goods from
them will strengthen them;
our duty is to make them
as weak as we can. Our obligation is to strengthen our resisting brothers in the
Holy Land as much as we can. If we cannot strengthen the brothers, we have a duty
to make the enemy weak.
If their weakness cannot be achieved
except by boycott, we must boycott them. American goods, exactly like “Israeli”
goods, are forbidden. It is also forbidden to advertise these goods.
today is a second Israel. It totally supports the Zionist entity. The usurper
could not do this without the support of America. “Israel’s” unjustified destruction
and vandalism of everything has been using American money, American weapons, and
the American veto.
America has done this for decades
without suffering the consequences of any punishment or protests about their oppressive
and prejudiced position from the Islamic world.
has come for the Islamic Ummah to say “No” to America, “No” to its companies,
and “No” to its goods, which swamp our markets. We are eating, drinking, wearing
and riding whatever America produces. Ali [may God (Allah) be pleased with him]
said: “You have three enemies; your enemy, the friend of your enemy, and the enemy
of your friend”.
The USA today is more than friends
to our enemy; they would destroy themselves for Israel. The world wide
Muslim Ummah numbering 1.3 billion, could cause pain to the USA and its companies
by boycotting them.
This is an obligation of our
religion, and the way of God (Allah).
Every Muslim that buys
“Israeli” or American goods, when there is an alternative from other countries
is committing a haram act. They are clearly committing a major sin, which is a
crime against God’s (Allah's) law, which invokes punishment from God (Allah),
and the contempt of the people. Our brothers in “Israel” and America are forced
to deal with them and buy their products. God does not ask you to do what you
can’t do; only what you can. God (Allah) says: “Fear God (Allah) as much as you
are able.” [Qur’an, 64:16.]. The Holy Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him,:
“If I order you to do something, do however much you can”.
in America must work with companies who are least hostile to Muslims, least allied
to the Zionists. Boycott Zionist companies as much as you can. Arabs and Muslims
must boycott all companies that are biased towards Zionism and support Israel,
whatever the national origin of that company [e.g. Marks and Spencer], and anyone
like this who supports the Zionists and helps the “Israeli” state.
boycott is a very sharp weapon, used in the past and recently. It was used by
the pagans in Mecca against the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be
upon him, and his companions. It caused great harm to them; they even had to eat
leaves. It was also used by companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings be
upon him, to fight against the pagans in Medina. In recent times we nations use
boycotts in their struggle for the liberation from colonialism. A famous example
is Gandhi who asked the vast Indian nation to boycott English goods, which was
very effective. A boycott is in the hands of the nation and masses alone.
can’t force people to buy goods from a particular country. Let us use this weapon
to resist our national and religious enemy, and make them know we are still alive,
and that this Ummah will not die, God (Allah) willing. The boycott has many different
effects; it renews the education of the Ummah in how to liberate themselves from
enslavement to other people’s taste. They encourage us to be addicted to these
things of no benefit, indeed they cause us harm. The boycott is a demonstration
of Muslim brotherhood and unity of the Ummah. It is our duty to say we are not
going to betray our brothers, who make sacrifices every day. We will not participate
in making profits for our enemy.
This boycott is
a lesser resistance, which will help the greater resistance carried out by our
brothers in the land of Messengers, and the fortified frontier of Jihad.
If every Jew in the world thinks himself a soldier,
supporting Israel as much as he can, surely every Muslim using his very soul and
wealth is a soldier to liberate Al-Aqsa. The least [the Muslim] can do
is boycott his [the enemies’] goods. God (Allah) says: “Oh you who believe, you
are protectors of each other. If you don’t do this there will be great division
and corruption.” If the consumer buying Jewish or American goods is committing
a major sin, surely the merchant buying these goods and acting as an agent is
the greatest sinner. Even if the company works under a different name, they know
they are deceiving people.
The Muslim Ummah all over the world is
being asked to demonstrate its existence, and show its desire to protect what
The Islamic Ummah must know who are
its allies, and who are its enemies. The Ummah is forbidden
to give in to weakness, and depression, and accept the tyrannical peace, which
the Zionists want to impose. God (Allah) says: “Don’t be humiliated and
ask for peace, while you are on the Uppermost and God is with you.”[Qur’an, 47:35].
Our sisters and daughters, who control the houses, have a role to play in this
matter, which may be more important than the role of the man, because women supervise
the needs of the house, and buy what must go inside the house. She is on hand
to guide the boys and girls.
She plants the Jihadic
spirit in the children, and educates them in what they must do for their
Ummah and its causes, and what they must do to the Ummah’s enemies, especially
in the area of boycott. When the children understand this they will carry on the
boycott enthusiastically, and later will lead the parents.
all the believers in God, Christians and others, and all the free and noble people
in the world to stand beside us, and support the right and ------h against falsehood,
and justice against injustice. Help to victory the weak, who are being killed
every day in the way of Allah, protecting the Noble Sanctuary.
I request the workers of the Arab and Muslim countries around the world to support
the Palestinians in the their just cause, and show their anger by demonstrating
against the powerful tyrants, by disturbing their businesses as
much as they can.[as in the world trade center, dear
Finally I ask the wise, reasonable
and experienced in every country to organise cells to build a boycott,
to create alternatives and avoid the negative things, and carry on educating the
masses, until the word of ------h is raised up and falsehood is destroyed. Surely
it will perish. “Say work, surely God will see your work and his Messenger and
the believers, you will return to the unseen world and witness, and you will know
what you were doing.”
Is an Individual Duty"
following is excerpted from the fatwa, or edict
Osama bin Laden
EDITOR: U.S. investigators
have focused on Bin Laden as the most likely suspect behind the coordinated bombings
of the U.S. Embassy buildings in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in
August of 1998. At least 250 people --including 12 Americans -- and injured more
than 5,000 in Nairobi. Ten people died in an almost simultaneous explosion at
the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam. The Palestinians who danced in the streets
in Israel as over 30,000 Americans fried BELIEVE the following as the law of Allah.
For more than seven years, the United States has been occupying the
lands of Islam in the holiest of places, the Arabian Peninsula, plundering its
riches, dictating to its rulers, humiliating its people, terrorizing its neighbors
and turning its bases in the peninsula into a spearhead through which to fight
the neighboring Muslim peoples.
The best proof of this is the Americans'
continuing aggression against the Iraqi people, using the peninsula as a staging
post, even though all its rulers are against their territories being used to that
end, but they are helpless.
...These crimes and sins committed by
the Americans are a clear declaration of war on God, his messenger and Muslims.
And ulema [Muslim scholars] have throughout Islamic history unanimously agreed
that the jihad [Holy War] is an individual duty if the enemy destroys the Muslim
On that basis, and in compliance with God's order, we
issue the following fatwa to all Muslims: The ruling is to kill the Americans
and their allies is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it, in order
to liberate the Al Aqsa mosque [Jerusalem] and the Holy Mosque [Mecca]...
is in accordance with the words of Almighty God... We call on every Muslim who
believes in God and wished to be rewarded to comply with God's order to kill the
Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it.
OSAMA BIN LADEN
DATED ABOUT 18 MONTHS AGO:
did he get started? At the age of 19 he went to Afghanistan and joined the Mujahedeen
in their war against the Russians. He fought heroically and his engineering skills
proved particularly valuable. Russian intelligence had already spotted his leadership
potential, although plans to kidnap him were thwarted. Ironically, the United
States poured $3 billion into the Afghan resistance via the CIA.
is an apocryphal story of a Russian general who was one of the last soldiers to
leave Afghanistan. "The Americans are crazy," he is reported to have said. "They
should be paying us to stay here." The CIA believed they were using the Mujahedeen
for their own needs; that the situation might in truth have been the reverse seems
not to have occurred to them. In Bin Laden's training camps the CIA's own manuals,
supplied with a view to discomfiting the Russians, are considered essential reading.
More recently, former Mujahedeen commanders close to the Taliban say that, in
Afghanistan, Bin Laden bankrolled the Taliban's capture of Kabul under the leadership
of the reclusive, one-eyed Mohammed Omar.
How does he pay for all
this? He is undoubtedly extremely rich. Estimates of his personal fortune vary
wildly. Figures up to $300 million have been bandied about in the press, but the
truth is that nobody knows. His money came originally from the family construction
business, but was augmented by fees from building projects in Sudan. Whatever
the size of his fortune, it is hidden in a complex web of international accounts
and controlled through a nebulous network he calls the Foundation for Islamic
Salvation. His role as a financier of terrorism is pivotal because he has revolutionized
the financing of extremist movements by forming and funding his own private terror
network. But not everyone believes the stories of his vast wealth. One Saudi source
was quoted as saying in The Independent: "The Americans dream up these extraordinary
figures, claim them to be the truth, get them printed in the press and - just
like that - they have created the millionaire terrorist that they want."
is he regarded in the Muslim world? In the past, America has had some success
in persuading friendly Arab states not to accept him, In 1994, he was stripped
of his Saudi citizenship and forced to move to Sudan. He was expelled in 1996
by the Sudanese (on pain of US sanctions). But his recent clash with the US, and
president Clinton's firm response, have sent his stock soaring. In Libya, for
example, Colonel Gadaffi personally led street protests in Tripoli following the
US attack on Bin Laden's base. In Lebanon the Al-Kifah Al-Arabi newspaper scornfully
accused the US of having "closed the zipper of its president and opened the buttocks
of its warships to rocket Afghanistan and Sudan".
What next? The
US missile attack against Bin Laden's Afghan base did little damage. Bin Laden
was not in the camp at the time, but even had he been there it is doubtful that
he would have been hurt. According to a senior Pakistani general, Bin Laden is
"a gifted qualified engineer who is an expert in building tunnels". He proved
this against the Russians, constructing ammunition dumps and hiding places deep
within the mountains, their entrances protected by huge slabs of rock. These tunnels
could apparently withstand even a direct hit from a cruise missile. Nor is there
any possibility of the Taliban agreeing to deport him. "We will never hand Osama
over to anyone," the Taliban's leader, Mullar Omar, has declared. "We will protect
him with our lives." Asked by Time whether he was trying to acquire chemical and
nuclear weapons, Bin Laden said: "Acquiring weapons for the defence of Muslims
is a religious duty. If I have indeed acquired these weapons, then I thank God
for enabling me to do so."
which Mullah do you believe?
