Struggle and Diligence
 

 

Islamic governments, since establishing themselves firmly in the Arab Peninsula and the Middle East, in the aftermath of Post WWI, have declared themselves, through their religious leaders, as representative of Allah. Islam has since claimed spiritual authority over all the Muslims of the world, regardless of their place of residence and country, whether in (Dar Al-Silm or Dar Al-Harb states) The Abode of Peace or the Abode of War.

Islam looks forward to the day when, through their Jihad (Holy War) and Ijtihad (Diligence), they will liberate the Abode of War, and ultimately cleanse the country they have come to live in, from polytheism, and subject its people to Islamic rule. Surat (Al-Ahzab) The Allies 33:26-27 states:

 

"And He drove down those of the followers of the Book who backed them from their fortresses and He cast awe into their hearts, some you killed and you took captive another part. And He made you heirs to their land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden, and Allah has power over all things.”

 

When people question the validity of such verses and the extent to which they are applied in modern times, Muslim spiritual leaders shift ground. Muslim scholars, academics and intellectuals say that those were events that took place in the past against a specific tribe, or some tribes and sects, and that they bear no relation to the present.

Yet, they stand as threatening examples and their potential applicability still exists, as is presently evidenced in Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, Egypt, Kashmir, the Philippines, Macedonia and Serbia’s Kosovo. Their hostility, armed aggression, determined separation and by force of arms, is a warning of the long-term objective of the Abode of Peace. The Lebanese Maronite Christians are already on the losing end of their final battle. It is getting harder by the day to hold on to their independence and cedar symbol, and may soon see their flag changed to reflect Islam’s hold.

The Lebanese Muslims are determined to change the constitution to agree with their increased ratio over the Christians. The Muslim domineering rival will eventually replace the cedar emblem on the Lebanese flag with the sectarian crescent, and add Lebanon to the ever-growing Abode of Peace of its Umma Nation. The make up of the National Assembly might remain and be reaffirmed since it suits the one-party system per se of the traditional Arab system of government of Majlis Al-Shura of old. Addition of Lebanon to the Abode of Peace will complete the link to be added to the Arab League to be called ‘The Islamic League’, denoting that all the Arab states are Islamic and so the rest of the member states of the League.
