One hundred percent (100%) of Islamic jihadis fighting the United States say they are fighting for an Islamic State (caliphate) ruled by “Allah’s divine law”/sharia.
The Taliban is no exception.
The Taliban states the reason they fight the Americans in Afghanistan is because foreigners in muslim lands must be removed at all costs.
Since sharia is the blueprint for how Islam wages war, and is the very thing muslims tell us they want to impose on every human being on earth, let us see what sharia says about the Taliban’s explanation for why they fight us.
Islamic Sacred Law [Umdat al Salik/Reliance of the Traveller (Published in Beltsville, MD)] states: “Jihad is a communal obligation. When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (o9.1).” Example given: The Taliban.
The Reliance of the Traveller goes on: “Jihad is also personally obligatory for everyone able to perform it, male or female, old or young, when the enemy has surrounded the muslims on every side, having entered our territory, even if the land consists of ruins, wilderness, or mountains, for non-muslim forces entering muslim lands is a weighty matter that cannot be ignored, but must be met with effort and struggle to repel them be every possible means.” (o9.3)
So it appears the Taliban is correct with regards to their duties in Islam.
Because the U.S. government failed to know the enemy and the enemy’s doctrine – sharia – the U.S. State Department wrote the constitution for Afghanistan in 2004 creating an Islamic State under sharia, thus handing Al Qaeda its objectives in that country on a silver platter.
Therefore, the United States lost the war in Afghanistan in 2004.
Yet, U.S. leaders, civilians and generals – blind to sharia and its authority in Islam – allowed our military servicemen and women to continue to fight and die in Afghanistan for years because they did not realize we lost the war in 2004.
It is worth noting the U.S. State Department also wrote the constitution of Iraq creating an Islamic State under sharia. Thus, the U.S. lost the war in Iraq in 2005.
It appears all of the “Islamic advisors” to the U.S. government – like the U.S. Envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad, who brokered the recent deal between the U.S. government and his Taliban brothers – forgot to mention the details of sharia to U.S. leaders.
To be ignorant of sharia and then intentionally enter into an agreement with an Islamic nation, group or muslim leader, is to participate in your own demise.
The stated purpose of Islam is to impose sharia on the earth through jihad (legally defined in Islam as “warfare against non-muslims”).
Islam allows truces so muslim forces can build up their strength to defeat non-muslim forces. Sharia specifically states, “Interests that justify making a truce are such things as muslim weakness because of lack of numbers or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming muslim.” (Reliance, o9.16)
So it should come as no surprise the Taliban initiated jihadi operations a day after signing the agreement and blew up a bomb at a soccer match in Afghanistan Saturday.
The suit-wearing jihadis in Washington, D.C. like Khalilzad, Oussama Jammal, Nihad Awad, and others, as well as the entire muslim world must be amused.
The entire muslim world – via the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation), the largest voting block in the UN – is party to the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam which states the entire muslim world ONLY understands “human rights” through sharia.
Therefore, the entire muslim world is on record saying “human rights in Islam is the imposition of sharia on the world.”
Maybe it is just bizarre irony the US-Taliban meeting was held in Qatar, another jihadi nation which U.S. government officials state here and here funds terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State among others.
Failure to know sharia is a guarantee the U.S. will lose the global war against the Marxist-Jihadi cabal. That is why for over 20 years all “Islamic advisors” at all levels of our community have failed to alert us to what sharia says and its authority in Islam.
As a matter of fact, isn’t it odd our leaders have an understanding of Islam/sharia that is exactly opposite of what muslims teach their children in U.S. Islamic schools?
