Storm Track Disinformation: What Makes a Terrorist?

What makes a terrorist?

Hatred of our freedoms? Gripes about colonialism? Poverty? Religion? All of the above?

No. What makes a terrorist is the same thing that makes a Nazi, a Communist, a fascist, or a Maoist. What makes them all the same is an adherence to a tyrannical ideology.

In his new book ‘What makes a Terrorist’, economist Alan Krueger debunks the theory that poverty spawns terrorism. He’s correct on that point and makes good case for it. People like to grab on to that rationale because social injustice is both understandable and preventable – the basis for all liberal solutions. If you can ‘understand’ the problem, you can work towards or talk through to a solution.

Not so with Sudden Jihad Syndrome as we have seen in numerous cases whereby normal-appearing Muslims abruptly become violent.

So what, according to Krueger, makes a terrorist?

Well, he doesn’t say. He talks a lot about what doesn’t make a terrorist but not what does. The reason for this is that he does not see or refuses to admit that the free world is dealing with virulent ideology that can be easily defined and the adherents to it easily identified. It’s an ideology that can not share with the free world common hearts and minds.

How about freedom of expression? Nope. Nada. Simple example – and I mean really simple – the Mohammed cartoon Intifada. One of the fundamental notions of a secular society is the moral importance of freedom, of individual choice. But in Islam, choice is not allowable: there cannot be free choice about whether to choose or reject any of the fundamental aspects of the religion, because they are all divinely ordained. God has laid down the law, and man must obey.

Then how about Western art and culture? Negatory. According to a Pew survey, in predominantly Muslim countries, it's not just that they don't approve of American culture; most plain don't like it. More than two-thirds of Bangladeshis (81%), Pakistanis (80%), Turks (68%), Palestinians (68%) and Indians (68%) said they do not like American music, movies and television."

Or modern entertainment? Nope.

Women’s rights? Yeah, right. Honor killings, forced marriages, clitoris mutilation.

How about Religious freedom? Paleeze.

Democracy? Fugetaboutit.

It’s the ideology.

At its core, Islam is deeply sceptical of the idea of a secular state. There is no rendering unto Caesar because state and religion are believed to be inseparable. This idea then interacts with centuries-old edicts of Islamic jurists about how the land of Islam should interact with the world of unbelievers, known as dar ul-kufr. The modern radicals then take it further, declaring that since, with the exception perhaps of Pakistan and Iran, there are no Islamic states, the whole world is effectively the land of the unbelievers. As a result, some radicals believe waging war on the whole world is justified to re-create it as an Islamic state.

They go as far as reclassifying the globe as dar ul-harb, “land of war”, apparently allowing Muslims to destroy the sanctity of the five rights that every human is granted under Islam: life, wealth, land, mind and belief. In dar ul-harb, anything goes, including the killing of civilians.

It’s historical antipathy to the very possibility that reason can exist as separate from God.

The appeasers and apologists for Islam just don't get it. They are going through philosophical contortions trying to separate Islam from terror and the Islamist are laughing up their sleeves. If democratic freedoms are to survive this century, then the objective is not to win the hearts and minds of Islamists – but fight their hearts and minds.

We have to start thinking in terms of ideology. Plain and simple, our democracy is a threat to their theocracy - a theocratic ideology. For that is what we are at war with.

This is not a battle over peoples’ territory but over peoples’ minds. This war will either be defined by our enemies, or by us. So far, they are defining this conflict, and are more clearly defining the underlying causes of it. We need to face that fact and act accordingly.

The only way we can re-align our thinking to fight this war effectively is to recognize what they are fighting for and what they say this war is about. Let’s start with one of their spiritual mouthpieces, or propagandists, straight from the belly of the beast and get it right from the horse’s mouth. From the Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdel Aziz Al Sheikh, himself in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia's leading religious figure, the grand mufti, Sunday defended the spirit of jihad, or holy war, as a God-given right.”

Then he lets the cat out of the bag.

"The spread of Islam has gone through several phases, secret and then public, in Mecca and Medina," the holiest places in Islam.”

Secret? Could he be referring to the Muslim Brotherhood "Project"? From the Assyrian International News Agency.

“In October of ‘05 President Bush denounced the Islamic ideological movement that called for a "violent and political vision: the establishment, by terrorism, subversion and insurgency, of a totalitarian empire that denies all political and religious freedom." The Muslim Brotherhood, also known as the Ikhwan, is a good example of what the President described and what he must protect us against. The Muslim Brotherhood organization, an expansive and secretive society with followers in more than 70 countries, describes itself as a political and social revolutionary movement. It was founded in March 1928 in Egypt by Hassan al-Banna, who objected to Western influence and called for return to an original Islam.”

And we know what that ‘original Islam’ was. The Taliban ands Al Qaeda are perfect manifestations of that ideology.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated to creating a global Islamic order that would isolate women and punish nonbelievers. Its members and supporters founded al Qaeda. The Muslim Brotherhood has historically and continues to actively pursue the establishment of a Muslim regime that will serve as the basis to re-establish the Caliphate.

But the free democracies, and especially the MSM, just don’t get it. How about this dumb headline from ABC news?

“'Day of Rage': Anger Not Jihad. Muslim Leaders world wide call for a ‘Day of Rage’. Do they mean violence?”

Naaah! And what about that ‘secret’ phase? Perhaps this is one version of it. Clerics 'teaching secret jihad'

“Islamic clerics in Sydney and Melbourne are using covert tactics to preach martyrdom and jihad to young followers, recruiting them under the guise of classes teaching the Koran…… Singapore-based terrorism analyst Rohan Gunaratna told The Australian that despite their denials and stronger terror laws, religious leaders in the two cities continued to preach violence to impressionable followers. Clive Williams, who runs a terrorism and counter-terrorism program at the Australian Defence Force Academy, said young Muslims were being recruited for jihad through "Koran classes". "They are doing it differently now," he said. “They are advertising for Koran classes and then selecting a few people for an inner circle.”Mr Williams said the clerics were profiling the followers in the Koran classes and selecting impressionable ones to target separately and privately for indoctrination.”

And finally, from the Asian Tribune that brings a new ripple to global struggle against theocracy. “War on Terror Equals War on Minorities”. That should warm the cockles of every liberal heart.

It’s neither terrorism nor nation states nor neo-cons who are the prime enemy; it’s the ideology, stupid - the ideology of Islamism and those that follow and quietly support it.

So what makes a terrorist? The same thing that makes a Nazi, a Communist, a fascists, or a Maoist.

It’s the ideology, stupid!

  • JIHAD HOLY WAR LAWS OF GOD IN THE KORAN

    By

    All Muslims believe the Koran is the divine word of God – the Eternal laws of God - that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just "fundamentalists," the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places forever; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim's duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.

    Following are close to 200 Jihad Holy War Eternal Laws of God that are not sins against God, are not crimes against God but are THE LAWS OF GOD

    [*2.178]...retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the slain... [*2.179] ...there is life for you in (the law of) retaliation, O men of understanding, that you may guard yourselves.

    [*2.190] ...fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you...[*2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

    [*2.193]...fight with them...[194]...whoever then acts aggressively against you, inflict injury on him according to the injury he has inflicted on you...

    [*2.216] Fighting is enjoined on you...[*2.217]... fighting in it. Say: Fighting in it is a grave matter...persecution is graver than slaughter... [*2.218]...strove hard in the way of Allah…

    [*2.244] ...fight in the way of Allah

    [*3.121]...to lodge the believers in encampments for war...[*3.122] When two parties from among you had determined that they should show cowardice [about Jihad]...[*3.123]...Allah did certainly assist you at [the Battle of] Badr...[*3.124]...[*3.125] Yea! if you remain patient and are on your guard, and they come upon you in a headlong manner, your Lord will assist you with five thousand of the havoc-making angels. [3.126] ...victory is only from Allah...

    [*3.140] If a wound has afflicted you (at [the Battle of] Uhud), a wound like it has also afflicted the (unbelieving) people; and We bring these days to men by turns, and that Allah may know those who believe and take witnesses from among you...[3.141] ...that He [Allah] may purge those who believe and deprive the unbelievers of blessings. [3.142] Yusuf Ali: Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without God testing those of you who fought hard (in His Cause) and remained steadfast? [3.143] Pickthall: And verily ye used to wish for death before ye met it (in the field). Now ye have seen it [death] with your eyes!

    [3.146] Yusuf Ali: How many of the prophets fought (in Allah’s way) [Jihad], and with them (fought) large bands of godly men? But they never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah’s way [lost a battle], nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in.

    [3.152]...you slew them by His [Allah’s] permission [during a Jihad battle]...[3.153] Pickthall: ...the messenger, in your rear, was calling you (to fight)...that which ye missed [war spoils]...[3.154]...They say: Had we any hand in the affair, we would not have been slain here [in a Jihad battle]. Say: Had you remained in your houses, those for whom slaughter was ordained [in a Jihad battle] would certainly have gone forth to the places where they would be slain...[*3.155] (As for) those of you who turned back on the day when the two armies met...[3.156] O you who believe! be not like those who disbelieve and say of their brethren when they travel in the earth or engage in fighting: Had they been with us, they would not have died and they would not have been slain...[3.157]...if you are slain in the way of Allah...mercy is better than what they amass [what those who stay home from Jihad receive – no booty on earth and no perks in heaven]. [3.158] …if indeed you die or you are slain, certainly to Allah shall you be gathered together.

    [*3.165]...you [Muslims] had certainly afflicted (the unbelievers) with twice as much [in a Jihad battle]...[*3.166]...when the two armies met ([the Battle of] Uhud)...[*3.167]...Come, fight in Allah’s way, or defend yourselves...If we knew fighting, we would certainly have followed you...
    [*3.169] ...reckon not those who are killed in Allah’s way as dead; nay, they are alive (and) are provided sustenance from their Lord [meaning they are enjoying their 72 virgins in heaven];

    [3.172] …those who responded (at [the Battle of] Uhud) to the call of Allah and the Apostle after a wound had befallen them…shall have a great reward. [*3.173] Those to whom the people said: Surely men have gathered against you [in battle], therefore fear them, but this increased their faith, and they said: Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent is the Protector.

    [*3.195] ...who fought and were slain...I will most certainly make them enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; a reward from Allah, and with Allah is yet better reward.

    [*4.71] ...go forth in detachments or go forth in a body [to war]. [*4.72] ...hang back [from Jihad] ...not present with them [in Jihad].

    [*4.74] Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world's life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. [*4.75]...fight in the way of Allah... [*4.76] Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan...[*4.77] ...when fighting is prescribed for them... Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us? ...

    [*4.84] Fight then in Allah’s way...rouse the believers to ardor maybe Allah will restrain the fighting of those who disbelieve...

    [*4.89] …take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back [to their homes], then seize them and kill them wherever you find them... [4.90] Allah has not given you a way against them [Allah supposedly does not allow Muslims to fight people friendly to Muslims]. [*4.91]...seize them and kill them wherever you find them...

    [*4.94]...when you go to war in Allah's way... [*4.95] ...those who strive hard [Jihad] in Allah's way with their property and their persons are not equal...Allah shall grant to the strivers [i.e., Jihadist] above the holders back a mighty reward.

    [*4.100] ...whoever flies in Allah's way [forsakes his home to fight in Jihad], he will find in the earth many a place of refuge and abundant resources, and whoever goes forth from his house flying to Allah and His Apostle, and then death overtakes him [in Jihad], his reward is indeed with Allah... [4.101] Rodwell: And when ye go forth to war in the land, it shall be no crime in you to cut short your prayers, if ye fear lest the infidels come upon you; Verily, the infidels are your undoubted enemies! [*4.102] ...let them take their arms...let them take their precautions and their arms...there is no blame on you, if you are annoyed with rain or if you are sick, that you lay down your arms... [4.103] Khalifa: Once you complete your Contact Prayer (Salat), you shall remember GOD while standing, sitting, or lying down. Once the war is over, you shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat); the Contact Prayers (Salat) are decreed for the believers at specific times.

    [*4.104] ...be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy...

    [4.141] Sher Ali: …If you have a victory [in Jihad] from Allah…

    [*5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned [Pickthall and Yusuf Ali have “exiled” rather than “imprisoned”]

    [*5.35] … strive hard [at Jihad] in His way that you may be successful.

    [5.82] …...you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews [compare with “whenever Jews kindle fire for war, Allah [Muslims] puts it out” (K 005:064)] and those who are polytheists [while they are converted to Islam on pain of death]...

    [8.1] Pickthall: ...the spoils of war...The spoils of war belong to Allah and the messenger

    [*8.5] Even as your Lord caused you to go forth from your house with the truth, though a party of the believers were surely averse;

    [*8.7] .. ...Allah promised you one of the two (enemy) parties, that it should be yours: Ye wished that the one unarmed should be yours, but Allah willed to justify the Truth according to His words and to cut off the roots of the Unbelievers.

    [*8.9] ...I will assist you [in Jihad] with a thousand of the angels following one another [see K 008:012]. [8.10] …Allah only gave it as a good news and that your hearts might be at ease thereby; and victory is only from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.

    [*8.12] …...make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

    [*8.15] ...when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. [*8.16] ...for the sake of fighting... [*8.17] So you did not slay them, but it was Allah Who slew them, and you did not smite when you smote (the enemy), but it was Allah Who smote [Allah gets the credit for Jihad]...

    [*8.39] Shakir: ...fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah... [8.40] Yusuf Ali: If they [unbelievers] refuse [to stop fighting], be sure that God is your Protector...[8.41] Shakir: ...whatever thing [loot] you gain, a fifth of it is for Allah and for the Apostle...the day on which the two parties met [in a Jihad versus anti-Jihad battle]...[*8.42]...Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done, that he who would perish might perish by clear proof [bring success to Muslims engaged in robbing a caravan near Badr against all the odds]...[8.43]...Allah showed them [the Mekkans] to you in your dream as few [fighters]; and if He had shown them [the Mekkans] to you as many [fighters] you would certainly have become weak-hearted [i.e., hearts. See the similar discussion in K 002:249 about how a smaller army can defeat a larger army]...[8.44]...when you met, as few [fighters] in your eyes and He made you to appear little [few fighters] in their eyes, in order that Allah might bring about a matter which was to be done [a Jihad versus anti-Jihad battle brought on by overconfidence in each side]...[*8.45]...when you meet a party [in battle], then be firm...[8.46]...obey Allah and His Apostle and do not quarrel for then you will be weak in hearts [demoralized] and your power [to execute Jihad] will depart...[8.47]...be not like those [Mekkans] who came forth from their homes [to fight Muslims]...[8.48]...when the two parties [Muslims versus Mekkans] came in sight of each other he [Satan] turned upon his heels...

    Pickthall: [8.57] If thou come on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember. [8.57] Khalifa: When you are betrayed by a group of people, you shall mobilize against them in the same manner. GOD does not love the betrayers. [*8.59] Shakir: ...let not those who disbelieve think that they shall come in first; surely they will not escape. [8.60] And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier, to frighten thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them, whom you do not know (but) Allah knows them; and whatever thing you will spend in Allah’s way [for Jihad]...

    [*8.65] O Prophet! urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand [in other words, “do not understand totalitarian ideologies like Islam”]. [8.66] ...if there are a hundred patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand they shall overcome two thousand by Allah's permission... [*8.67] It is not fit for a prophet that he should take captives unless he has fought and triumphed in the land; you desire the frail goods [i.e., ransom money] of this world... [8.68] ...ransom... [*8.69] Eat then of the lawful and good (things) which you have acquired in war [war spoils]... [8.70] O Prophet! say to those of the captives [non-Muslims] who are in your hands: If Allah knows anything good in your hearts, He will give to you better than that which has been taken away from you [in Jihad]…[*8.71] Yusuf Ali: But if they have treacherous designs against thee, (O Apostle!)…He [Allah] given (thee) power over them…[*8.72] Yusuf Ali: Those who …fought for the Faith, with their property and their persons, in the cause of God…[8.73] Yusuf Ali: The Unbelievers are protectors, one of another: Unless ye do this, (protect each other), there would be tumult and oppression on earth, and great mischief. [*8.74] Yusuf Ali:…fight for the Faith…[*8.75] Yusuf Ali: …fight for the Faith…

    [*9.5] ...slay the idolaters wherever you find them...take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush...

    [*9.12] ...fight the leaders of unbelief...[*9.13] What! will you not fight a people...[*9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.

    [*9.16] …...those of you who have struggled hard [in Jihad]

    [*9.19] ...strives hard in Allah’s way?... [*9.20]...strove hard [Jihad] in Allah's way with their property and their souls...

    [*9.24] ...striving in His way [Jihad]:, then wait till Allah brings about His command [to go on Jihad]: ... [*9.25] Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of [the Battle of] Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, ... [*9.26] ...chastised those who disbelieved [Muhammad gives credit to angels and Allah for the actions of Jihadists]...

    [*9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah...nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

    [*9.36] ...fight the polytheists all together as they fight you all together..
    .
    [*9.38] ...Go forth in Allah's way [to Jihad]… [*9.39] If you do not go forth [to go on Jihad], He will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your place a people other than you [to go on Jihad]...

    [*9.41] Go forth light [lightly armed] and heavy [heavily armed], and strive hard in Allah’s way [Jihad] with your property and your persons...

    [*9.44] ...striving hard with their property and their persons [Jihad] ...

    [*9.52]...Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or by our hands...

    [*9.73] ...strive hard [Jihad] against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them...
    [*9.81] ...they were averse from striving in Allah’s way [Jihad] with their property and their persons, and said: Do not go forth [to Jihad] in the heat...
    [*9.83] ... shall you fight an enemy with me [in Jihad]...

    [*9.86] ...strive hard [in Jihad] along with His Apostle

    [*9.88] ...strive hard [in Jihad] with their property and their persons...

    [*9.92] Yusuf Ali: Nor (is there blame) on those who came to thee to be provided with mounts [saddles on which to go to war], and when thou said, “I can find no mounts for you,” they turned back, their eyes streaming with tears of grief that they had no resources wherewith to provide the expenses [to go on Jihad].

    [*9.111] ...they fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain...

    [*9.120] Yusuf Ali:...whether they suffered thirst, or fatigue, or hunger, in the cause of Allah [while on a march to Jihad], or trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers [invade their territory], or received any injury whatever from an enemy [during a Jihad battle] ...

    [*9.122] Pickthall:...the believers should not all go out to fight. Of every troop of them, a party only should go forth... [*9.123] ...fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness...

    [*16.110] Yusuf Ali:...who thereafter strive and fight for the faith and patiently persevere...

    [*22.39] Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made...

    [22.58] Sher Ali: ...those who leave their homes for the cause of Allah, and are then slain or die, Allah will, surely, provide for them a goodly provision...

    [*22.78]...strive hard [in Jihad] in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him...

    [24.53]...they would certainly go forth [to Jihad (see K 024:055)]...

    [24.55] Allah has promised to those of you who believe and do good that He will most certainly make them rulers in the earth [as a reward for going on Jihad (see K 024:053)]...

    [25.52] Palmer: ...fight strenuously with them in many a strenuous fight.

    [*29.6]...whoever strives hard [in Jihad], he strives only for his own soul...

    [*29.69] ...(as for) those who strive hard [in Jihad] for Us...

    [33.15] Pickthall: ...they had already sworn unto Allah that they would not turn their backs (to the foe) [in Jihad battle]...
    [*33.18] ...they come not to the fight [Jihad] but a little...

    [*33.20] they would not fight save a little [in Jihad].

    [33.23] Pickthall: ...Some of them [Jihadists] have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting…

    [*33.25]...Allah sufficed the believers in fighting… [*33.26]...some [Jews] you killed and you took captive another part. [33.27]...He made you heirs to their [Jewish] land and their dwellings and their property, and (to) a land which you have not yet trodden…

    [33.50]...those [captive women] whom your right hand possesses [i.e., by virtue of the sword used in Jihad] out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war...

    [42.39] Sale:…and who, when an injury is done them, avenge themselves…

    [47.4] ...when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates...(as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah...

    [*47.20] ...fighting [allusion to Jihad] is mentioned therein ...

    [47.35] Rodwell: Be not fainthearted then; and invite not the infidels to peace when ye have the upper hand: for God is with you, and will not defraud you of the recompense of your works.

    [48.15] Pickthall: ...when you set forth to capture booty...[*48.16]...You shall soon be invited (to fight) against a people possessing mighty prowess; you will fight against them until they submit...[48.17] Pickthall: There is no blame...for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeys Allah and His messenger [by going on Jihad], He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turns back [from Jihad], him will He punish with a painful doom. [48.18] Certainly Allah was well pleased with the believers when they swore allegiance to you under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down tranquility on them and rewarded them with a near victory, [48.19] And much booty that they will capture. Allah is ever Mighty, Wise. [48.20] Allah promised you many acquisitions which you will take, then He hastened on this one for you and held back the hands of men from you, and that it may be a sign for the believers and that He may guide you on a right path. [48.21] Sale: And [he also promiseth you] other [spoils], which ye have not [yet] been able [to take]: But now hath God encompassed them [for you]; and God is almighty. [*48.22] And if those who disbelieve fight with you, they would certainly turn (their) backs, then they would not find any protector or a helper. [48.23] Such [i.e., the Jihad mentioned the previous verse] has been the course [practice] of Allah that has indeed run before, and you shall not find a change in Allah’s course. [48.24] And He [Allah] it is Who held back...your hands from them [in Jihad] in the valley of Mecca...

    [49.15] Sale: ...true believers ...employ their substance and their persons in the defense of God’s true religion...

    [*59.2] ...the hands of the believers [i.e. Muslims demolished Jewish homes] ...
    Pickthall:[*59.5] Whatsoever palm-trees you cut down or left standing on their roots [during a Jihad siege of the Jews at Madina], it was by Allah’s leave, in order that He might confound the evil-livers [Jews]. [*59.6] ...that which Allah gave as spoil unto His messenger from them, you urged not any horse or riding-camel for the sake thereof, but Allah gives His messenger lordship over whom He will... [*59.7] That which Allah gives as [war] spoil unto His messenger from the people of the townships [Jews], it is for Allah and His messenger...whatsoever [spoils] the messenger gives you, take it...[*59.8] ...who seek bounty [war spoils] from Allah...

    [*59.14] They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls...

    [*60.9] Allah only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of (your) religion [no fraternizing with the enemy]...

    [*61.4] ...Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were a firm and compact wall.

    [61.11] ...struggle hard in Allah’s way [Jihad] with your property and your lives...

    [61.13] ...victory [in Jihad] near at hand...

    [63.4] ...they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned back? [This verse speaks of internecine Jihad against Muslims deemed infidels or “hypocrites.”]

    [64.14] ...surely from among your wives and your children there is an enemy to you; therefore beware of them [collaborators with the enemy, especially if the women were once war spoils]...

    [66.9] O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be hard against them...

    [73.20] ...others who fight in Allah's way...
