The Warrior-Poet explains:
Muslims ruled Africa to Spain and absolutely forced sharia observance on all. Sharia is not remotely the same as halahka – Jewish law.
1. Hijra/migration jihad formed when nascent Islam was kicked out of Mecca the first time. In Medina they found a formula that empowered them – robbing caravans. They became rich, attracted cutthroats, began to develop rules for spoils and booty, and eventually overthrew Medina. Later, the returned to Mecca, killed all, and have been marching since. This formative experience foundationally established non-military Hijra migration as a core tenet, as Durant noted in discussing “threats multiplying from within,” when commenting on the Second Great Jihad, which killed 100,000,000 people.
2. 70% of Islamic scriptures – Koran, sira, Hadith – pertain to non Muslims.
3. No caliph or other would have legitimacy were sharia not to be applied.
4. Islamic texts cannot be understood without first understanding the Islamic experience, their flight from Mecca, their subsequent rise, the nature of revelation, and mostly, abrogation. If someone says otherwise, they are lying or ignorant. In Mecca 1, the Muslims were persecuted. Their prophet appealed for tolerance, etc, these became the Mecca era quotes. As they were being expelled, and still protesting, the Muslims declared “why do you persecute us?” The Meccan elders declared “We don’t persecute you. We only want you to stop destroying our idols and abusing our gods.” Later, when they conquered Medina, the admonishments of what their god commanded became more militant. By the time they then broke a truce, and beheaded and killed the Meccans, and entered their global conquest phase, nearly all their prophets revelations were decidedly violent, such as the famed “Sword Verse”. Aware of these disconnects, Muslims then asked their prophet “here you call to peace, but there to war…” para. The prophet answered “Al lah can do as he pleases. If he gives you one commandment, and later another, the first will be superseded.” Para. This became abrogation and essentially, the entire early part of the nascent Islamic experience is abrogated by the later warring, empowered parts. Yep, universally known by Islamic students. Had their prophet died old, he may have mellowed and offered more pacific declarations of god. But he died at the heart of warring.
5. Islam (which translates into submission, not peace), thus divides the world into two spheres: the house of submission, dar al Islam, and the house of war, dad al harb. You are in the house of war. Islam MUST wage jihad till all declare “there is not god but allah and Mohammed is his prophet!” Fact!
6. Hijra/migration jihad is so highly developed in Islam that is is the quintessential insurgency primer of all history. The details on friends, treaties, taqiyya (lying and deception to further Islam) are unmatched in any other product of humanity (Von Clausewitz and Sun Tzu are not even close).
Lastly, as an example of taqiyya: Koran, 5:32 “…if any one killed a person, it would be as if he killed the whole of mankind; and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole of mankind…” We hear this often, don’t we? In fact, apologists parade this daily. But what’s to object here? Nothing! Nothing at all. However, this is not about Muslims. Muslims have an entirely different set of rules and injunctions. This is a place in the Koran where it is discussing the rules of the Jews, for the Jews! This only pertains to Jews!
Epilogue: with the vast majority of the scriptures- Koran, Sira, hadith, and over 60% the Koran itself, specifically applying to non Muslims, it’s incredulous to suggest sharia is not binding on others. “Others” are the fuel that drives sharia. “Others” form the foundation of its jizya and caste setup.
