(In response to a previous post addressing the question of whether it is productive to label ISIS and similar organizations “evil”, I have obtained through my connections a strikingly similar post written by a young jihadist from an undisclosed location near Iraq.)
Brothers, I wish to address and important issue today. There are those in the world who call themselves Muslims, who claim to submit to the will of Allah, who nevertheless denounce our carrying out jihad against America and punishing the evils of the West. Their solution to the problem of American imperialism is to try and understand the circumstances that lead westerners to become oppressors. They assert that when we label the West “evil”, it prevents us from understanding the root causes of imperialism and that jihad is preventing us from being servants of Allah.
This is the worst blasphemy imaginable. Imagine if we had no name for disease or famine. Would this prevent our people from suffering under the hands of American soldiers? Would this prevent them us dying from American bombs? Indeed, without the proper label we cannot recognize the true problem, and therefore we cannot fight it.
Contrary to what these “moderates” assert, the most dangerous thing we can do is fail to target America, Israel, and their allies, who are the greatest evil of our time. These moderates are merely the product of a secular value system that permeates the “educated” Muslim world. Such values hinder our ability to think clearly on moral issues.
What separates the truly submissive from the false believers is that they wish to liberate us from oppression by accommodating the West further. However, those of us engaged in holy jihad understand that it is Islam’s acquiescence to the West that caused our oppression. Moderates believe in engaging with the Americans and Israelis because they are under the illusion that secular learning has the power to cause changes in policy that will make life better for Muslims.
However, this blinds them from seeing true evil. Their approach to dealing with America is a perfect example of what happens when you believe western culture is inherently good. The presumption is that if they can promote “understanding” of Islam, then we could reverse our oppression by changing the circumstances that led America to become imperialist. These solutions are naive and only work in the minds of fools. History has shown that the way you deal with evil is not by “understanding” it, but by wiping it off the face of the earth. Those who advocate otherwise can provide no examples of their approach being successful.
The glorious Qur’an says, “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter… if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.”
So-called “moderate” muslims are under condemnation for turning away from the teachings of God and his prophet, which have produced the greatest civilizations in history. We are seeing more and more of those in the Muslim world loving and tolerating evil and hating Allah. But we know the truth: America is evil and must be destroyed.
