Nonsense Political Correctness[edit]

The people of this website will not flinch to attack the Catholic church and "Conservapedia", but when it comes to Islamism (a far-right religious political movement, ironically), they bend over backwards to be politically correct, like the moronic leftists they are.

Well... this isn't a very thorough article, admittedly. But I find it odd how, out of all our articles on Islamic extremism, you take this one as representative. Balaam (talk) 20:02, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
To become a far left mouthpiece that appeases everything the right decries defeats the whole purpose of this site. It's anti-science anti-reason and anti-intelligence. 207.81.189.133 (talk)
Yep, I agree, which is why we just document things like how the concept of jihad is used completely inaccurately in right wing media. Sorry you like a specific lie we don't reinforce. ikanreed ๐ŸBleat at me 22:46, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

offensive vs defensive jihad[edit]

I'm going to reserve any discussion of bin Laden's theological justification for "defensive jihad" (see Scheuer's book) for this mainspace and leave it out of the al-Qaeda and bin Laden pages. Allah only knows when I'll be able to get to it. nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 16:08, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Fun Fact About Jihad[edit]

Musnad Ahmad 18449 says:

ุนูŽู†ู’ ุทูŽุงุฑูู‚ู ุจู’ู†ู ุดูู‡ูŽุงุจู ุฃูŽู†ูŽู‘ ุฑูŽุฌูู„ู‹ุง ุณูŽุฃูŽู„ูŽ ุฑูŽุณููˆู„ูŽ ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ู ุตูŽู„ูŽู‘ู‰ ุงู„ู„ูŽู‘ู‡ู ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ู ูˆูŽุณูŽู„ูŽู‘ู…ูŽ ุฃูŽูŠูู‘ ุงู„ู’ุฌูู‡ูŽุงุฏู ุฃูŽูู’ุถูŽู„ู ู‚ูŽุงู„ูŽ ูƒูŽู„ูู…ูŽุฉู ุญูŽู‚ูู‘ ุนูู†ู’ุฏูŽ ุณูู„ู’ุทูŽุงู†ู ุฌูŽุงุฆูุฑู

This roughly translates to:

The Prophet was asked "what is the best Jihad?" and replied "A word of truth in front of a tyrannical ruler".— Unsigned, by: 76.117.166.82 / talk / contribs

I asked a Muslim...[edit]

...whether one needed to be a Muslim to conduct a Jihad, suggesting that a righteous war against an evil cause could be Jihad.

He said that the war against the Nazis was Jihad, even if the leaders were devout Christians like Sir Winston Churchill or Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It helps in that context that Nazism violates many Islamic virtues.Pbrower2a (talk) 01:07, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

Many Muslims, tens of thousands, served the Third Reich. They were really into killing Jews and the civilian population. nobsAloha Snackbar 02:38, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
I asked a Christian if the Bible speaks against homosexuality, and he said "of course not!" So there you have it, I merely need to ask a Christian or a Muslim what their faith is all about, and if they give me the answer I want to hear, that's the correct answer... I'm of course being sarcastic. The ONLY way to know what Islam teaches is to study the Quran and the Sunna of Muhammad (Hadith and Sira). We only know what Islam teaches by what the books teach. What an adherent says their religion teaches is totally irrelevant. 207.81.189.133 (talk)
