There is a reason Iranian officials reminded the Iranian people about Hudaybiyyah when referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – the “Iran nuclear deal.”
It has everything to do with “Allah’s divine law”/sharia.
Islam’s prophet Mohammad made the treaty of Hudaybiyyah with Jews which, the Jews were told, was a ten year peace treaty. In fact, Mohammad first banished the Jews, and they were later slaughtered at Khaybar.
This makes violating a treaty in order to advance Islam a permanent part of sharia because the “exalted standard of conduct” Mohammad did it.
Sharia obliges muslims to lie to non-muslims if the lie advances Islam.
But you would not know these things if you do not understand sharia.
And so it is when dealing with any Islamic entity. You must know sharia to understand how they communicate and what the true intentions are of any Islamic person, entity, or nation with which you are communicating.
Since Iran’s constitution makes clear Iran is in a permanent state of war against the non-muslim world until an Islamic State under sharia exists over the entire globe, all negotiations with the Iranian government are an exercise in futility, and are meant as a delaying tactic while they advance their efforts.
Iranian Constitution: “In the formation and equipping of the country’s defence forces, due attention must be paid to faith and ideology as the basic criteria. Accordingly, the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are to be organized in conformity with this goal, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the country, but also for fulfilling the ideological mission of jihad in God’s way; that is, extending the sovereignty of God’s law throughout the world (this is in accordance with the Qur’anic verse “Prepare against them whatever force you are able to muster, and strings of horses, striking fear into the enemy of God and your enemy, and others besides them” [8:60]).
No action can be taken by the United States politically or militarily with regards to any Islamic entity/nation, without a deep understanding of sharia, which the U.S. currently lacks inside all major components of the government.
Therefore, all actions taken with regards to Islamic nations are doomed to failure without taking sharia into account. This is why the United States lost the wars in Afghanistan despite the fact the U.S. military crushed the enemy on the battlefield.
In fact, the U.S. lost those wars in 2005 when the U.S. Department of State wrote the constitutions for Iraq and Afghanistan creating Islamic Republics in those nations under sharia – thus handing Al Qaeda their objective in those two nations.
Ridiculously soft rules of engagement for U.S. combatants, General officers ordering soldiers and Marines to disregard muslim men raping muslim boys in Afghanistan as “cultural norms,” and other such directives all reflect gross negligence and a lack of understanding of what it will take to defeat the Islamic foe.
To determine the enemy’s defeat mechanism, one must understand sharia, and only a total and crushing defeat of Islamic nations and armies will stop the global jihad.
Every time the U.S. attempts to negotiate, appease, or find a softer way to a solution, sharia demands Islamic nations and armies fight more aggressively because these actions are seen as weakness and as Allah handing the muslims victory.
If the United States is serious about Iran, it will obliterate Iran’s military, destroy its leadership, and do so within a broader strategy to defeat the global Islamic threat, which includes not only Al Qaeada, the Islamic State, Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas, Boko Haram, Abu Sayef, the Deobandis, and others, but also Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Qatar.
