Absolutism
 

 

The process of confrontation and coercive conversion continues, indoctrinating all inhabitants of the Abode of Peace with Islam’s theology as absolute. Reminiscent of the Prophet’s triumphal entry into Mecca, Islam maintains that it will discredit all other religions by conquering the Abode of War and emerging triumphant. Its sectarian leaders will call out ‘Allaho Akbar,’ reiterating: “one universal god, one universal religion, one universal system of government”, reaffirming Islam as absolute - the whole world will then become the Abode of Peace. Peace will prevail on earth under the banner of the one Nation of Islam, as is now the case in Saudi Arabia and the whole of the Arab Peninsula, in fulfilment of the prophet’s message. Muslims often take, by force, from non-Muslims. Under certain circumstances, it becomes permissible and lawful to attack a non-Muslim, raid, kill, lay claim and possess the person’s property according to their religious (shari’ah) law.

Surah (IX) 9; (V): 5; (Al-Tawbah) Repentance: calls upon the Muslims to resume their fight against the (Mushrikeen) polytheists:

 

"But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay The Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, And lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); But if they repent, and establish regular prayers And practise regular charity then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

 

Militants, under the direct leadership of Islamic organizations, have adopted a new approach to jihad. The mujahideen operate with a style that is convenient and agrees with the modern times. They employ advanced technology and deadly weaponry. They have extended their field of operation to cover nearly the whole world. This includes the whole of Africa; the Middle and Near East, the Balkans, the West, parts of Eastern Europe (the Caucuses) and the central region of Asia; Indian Sub-Continent, China’s Far West down to Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, East Timor, West Papua and parts of the Western Hemisphere. Only locations change. Instead of beasts of burden like the donkey, horse and camel, they now use motorised means of transport like cars, trains, motorboats, motorbikes and planes. They resort to sabotage, mine traps, remote car bombing and assassination. Instead of attacking and raiding caravans as of old, they hijack passenger planes, use explosives, and blow up vehicles and trains causing maximum damage to buildings and military targets; and injury to Christian and Jewish people indiscriminately. Their aim is to draw attention to their call, to have others accept and agree to their cause and their religion as true and applicable.
