Winds of War: Former British Jihadist Gets It Right

This is one of the best and simplest analysis of why average Muslims from a “broad spectrum’ of society (tongue in cheek) wants to blow themselves and other around them to bits.

A former British Jihadist explains it in two simple steps.

According to Hassan Butts, a former jihadist, blaming Islamic terrorism on the government (the West) for the actions of Islamic terrorists is highly misplaced blame, and only serves to help the terrorists - who laugh in celebration over the free propaganda in their behalf by those that they seek to terrorize. More importantly, he believes that blaming the West and its foreign policy only serves to draw away any critical examination from the real engine of the violence of radical Islam: Islamic theology:

Whoa!! You mean it IS the ideology after all?

And though many British extremists are angered by the deaths of fellow Muslim across the world, what drove me and many others to plot acts of extreme terror within Britain and abroad was a sense that we were fighting for the creation of a revolutionary worldwide Islamic state that would dispense Islamic justice.

If we were interested in justice, you may ask, how did this continuing violence come to be the means of promoting such a (flawed) Utopian goal? How do Islamic radicals justify such terror in the name of their religion?

There isn't enough room to outline everything here, but the foundation of extremist reasoning rests upon a model of the world in which you are either a believer or an infidel.


Not the existence of Israel? Not NATO troops in Afghanistan? Not US Troops in Iraq? Not US foreign policy?

For centuries, the reasoning of Islamic jurists has set down rules of interaction between Dar ul-Islam (the Land of Islam) and Dar ul-Kufr (the Land of Unbelief) to cover almost every matter of trade, peace and war. But what radicals and extremists do is to take this two steps further.

Their first step has been to argue that, since there is no pure Islamic state, the whole world must be Dar ul-Kufr (The Land of Unbelief).

Step two: since Islam must declare war on unbelief, they have declared war upon the whole world.


There it is. Straight from a former Jihadist’s mouth.

For decades, radicals have been exploiting the tensions between Islamic theology and the modern secular state - typically by starting debate with the question: "Are you British or Muslim?" But the main reason why radicals have managed to increase their following is because most Muslim institutions in Britain just don't want to talk about theology.

The theology of Islam can lead to Islamism and that’s what it’s doing today. Until we face up to the fact that we are fighting an ideology and not some criminals in a cave somewhere, we will not be able to mount an effective defense, let alone an effective offense.

  • Evil In The Name of God

    Allah's Apostle said, “I have been made victorious with terror." Bukhari 4:52:220

    It was Hitler who once said that when you tell a lie tell a big lie. The two biggest lies that have ever been told is that Islam is A religion of Peace and Muhammad as a Prophet of Peace.

    Muhammad was a self-appointed "prophet" guilty of murder, including by beheadings and crucifixion, rape, torture, kidnapping, extortion, slavery, mutilations, theft, adultery, false witness, abuse of women, physically and sexually, and sexual abuse of at least one child. Mohammad slaughtered unbelievers and masterminded over 60 massacres. At the Massacre of Banu Quraiza he personally beheaded upwards of 600 Jews. In order to ensure that only men were beheaded Muhammad had all the young boys examined for hair around their gentials. Those boys with the slightest trace of hair were taken away and beheaded. The boys and women were sold into slavery.

    Convinced of his own status, he was intolerant of those who rejected him, assassinated those who criticized him, raided and looted those who did not believe in him, and massacred entire populations. He reduced thousands into slavery, raped and allowed his men to rape female captives. He was generous to those who accepted him, but vengeful towards those who didn’t. Punishments for taking a stand against Muhammad included torture and death. Both men and women were brutally killed for criticizing Muhammad. Some early Muslims who apostatized were killed after Muhammad gave the command to kill all who turn away from Islam. He murdered numerous people whose only crime was writing poems against him.

    As a child molester, among the earliest duties of Aisha as Muhammad's wife of 9 years old was the task of washing semen stains off his clothes: "Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated: I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet (the blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them."

    Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, the jihads, all Muslims who use violence as a religious weapon are the true descendents of Muhammad. These killers and murderers are following the teachings and model of hateful, depravity set by Muhammad of ruthless and merciless atrocities - torture, mass murders and assassinations of all those who opposed his maniacal vision of civilization. They are true Muslims.
