He had a document entitled, “39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad.” Clearly, then, he is a Misunderstander of Islam, for as we all know (and according to this ridiculous piece in the University of North Carolina student newspaper about our AFDI anti-jihad ads), jihad is “internal struggle that a Muslim experiences as they attempt to live their lives in accordance with Islam.”
“Since lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought.” — Ibn Taymiyya — much more on the real doctrine of jihad here.
“UK man from Birmingham charged with terrorist offenses,” from the Associated Press, November 5 (thanks to all who sent this in):
LONDON “” Police say a 44-year-old man has been charged in Britain with possessing information useful for preparing an act of terrorism.
West Midlands Police said Mohammed Benares of Birmingham is set to appear in court on Nov. 19 charged with three offenses under the Terrorism Act.
Police said Monday he has been granted conditional bail.
Oh, that’s wise.
He was first arrested in March after allegedly being found with a document called “39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad.”
Police said many electronic files were analyzed before the charges were filed.
