Long-Term Objective of Islam

 

 

Islam is as dangerous as communism. Like two lines that run parallel to each other, their concepts may differ but their objective is the same - world dominion. Although communism is now on the collapse and has lost much of its ideological influence, its aim was to dominate the world through Marxism and Leninism. Afghanistan and Iran were vivid examples and good testing grounds for the two conflicting ideologies between Communism and Islam. Preparations for bigger encounters on other fronts, with the West and most certainly with Israel, are looming on the horizon. Once Islam declares a person or nation ‘jahil’ i.e., ignorant - a heathen of the Arabs before the advent of Islam, or later a ‘kafir’ non-Muslim infidel, it becomes lawful and allowable for them to attack that person, seize his property and invade his country and add it to the Abode of Peace of the Islamic (Umma) Nation (Hiro, 1989: pp 68, 80).

All the Islamic states abide by the hidden agenda of the doctrine of (Dar Al-Harb) the Abode of War and (Dar Al-Silm) the Abode of Peace. Yet, its application varies from state to state, depending on the conviction and convenience of the government of the day and authority of the clergy in exploiting the right circumstance. Islamic separatists that occupy territories of non-Muslim countries, come under the direct protection of the Abode of Peace.

Such occupied territories become entitled to shelter under the umbrella and direct rule and influence of the (Umma) Nation of Islam; like Kosovo by Albania, Eastern Cyprus by Turkey, Lebanon by Syria, the Moros in Southern Philippines by Libya and Indonesia, Chechnya by Afghanistan and Jammu Kashmir by Pakistan. Such separatists consider themselves collectively an integral part of the Abode of Peace. They get protection and support from other Islamic states, considering them part of the Abode of Peace and an extension of the growing Islamic (Umma) Nation.

MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) have already launched a sudden invasion on southern Philippines. They have captured several Christian villages, claimed them as Muslim areas and placed them under the direct jurisdiction of the Muslim Moros of the Dar Al-Silm, the Abode of Peace of the Islamic (Umma) nation. By declaring them Islamic, the separatists legitimise the support of other Muslim states towards full independence, following in the footsteps of the Turkish Cypriots and Indonesia in East Timor. To release non-Muslim hostages, the Muslim kidnappers insist that a Muslim third party should act as a mediator and negotiate on their behalf as a mark of recognition of their territory becoming Islamic in their struggle towards complete independence (Hiro, 1989: p 24).

It is against the religion of Islam to withdraw from a land they have conquered. They do not believe in decolonisation. If unable to retain it, they apply the scorched earth policy before withdrawing, taking as many hostages with them as possible. The Army let loose the militias, burning, looting and hacking to death men, women and children in a most dreadful way in their retreat (Pryce-Jones: pp 27-28). Eastern Cyprus and East Timor are vivid examples. Lebanon, Israel, Northern Iraq, Egypt, the Sudan and Algeria, are on-going targets.

Muhammad’s call was for a unified Islamic nation. Islamic States of The Abode of Peace refuse to recognise the nationality and culture of native the inhabitants living under the Islamic Shari’ah Rule. Such Islamic States nullify the genuine nationality of the natives. Instead, the Islamic states call the natives by their creed or religious denomination, with a view to phasing out their national identity. In their view, people of diversified cultures will eventually integrate and be absorbed into the (Umma) Islamic Nation. Islam does not consider such conquests aggression, but rather a gradual addition of a reformed community to its expanding homeland of (Dar Al Silm) the Abode of Peace. Regardless of their geographical locations, they consider these additions an extension to their growing (Umma) Nation, which according to their Koranic interpretation should cover the whole world.
