Dr. Abu Ziyaad writes a charming piece at the pro-jihadist site Jihad Unspun in which he calls for restoration of the caliphate and the laws of dhimmitude.
The caliph was the successor of Muhammad as the religious, political, and military leader of the worldwide Muslim community. Radical Muslims today want to restore the caliphate in order to unify and strengthen Islam in its jihad against non-Muslims. Dhimmitude, of course, is the institutionalized oppression of non-Muslims that is called for under Islamic law.
In France, Islam and Muslims are being attacked in a manner that will make the Muslim place the French traditions and culture above the Islamic traditions and culture.
That sentence in itself indicates that those who think that the Muslim population in France or elsewhere will assimilate easily into secular society are whistling in the dark. France may be silly to ban the hijab (along with the kippa and crucifix), but French officials will for decades to come be dealing with the larger problem of how to deal with a growing population that cherishes traditions and culture that are absolutist, not tolerant, and make no provision for those outside them except a despised second-class status.
Dr. Abu Ziyaad is not surprised to see Muslims having a hard time in France, given the historical record:
It is not surprising therefore to see Muslims in the so-called land of “˜Fraternity, Egality and Liberty” once again the focus of local politics-to be used as pawns in a wider political chess game. The animosity to Islam and the Muslims has always been there. France was one of the main participants in the destruction of the last Islamic Khilafah state (the Ottoman State), when she attempted to strike the Islamic State from the back through her agent Muhammed Ali, the governor (Wali) of Egypt. France openly supported him internationally and politically, he eventually broke away from the Khilafah and declared war against it. In addition, France was and still is a center for the Orientalists like Francois Burgat et al who waste no opportunity in attacking Islam and Muslims. Expedient politicians like Jacques Chirac and Jean Marie Le-Pen, have been using promises to get the Muslims out of France as slogans for their campaigns since the early nineties. Chirac, for example, before taking the office of President called for ‘France for the French only’, and complained about “the noise and smell coming out of the houses of immigrants.”
This is a cheap shot, but a common one. It actually may be true that Chirac, Le-Pen and others are just worried about racial purity and “noise and smell” “” I don’t know. But even if they are, this has nothing to do with legitimate concerns about the ultimate coexistence of French secular law and the Sharia.
The source of animosity of the French, in specific, and the Kafir [Unbelieving] West, in general, to Islam and Muslims is well explained in the Qur’an. Allah (swt) says: “The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you until you follow their ways and beliefs.” [TMQ 2:20] . . . The authorities clearly view Islam and Muslims as a threat to the French secular way of life.
Well, is the French population of France ready to renounce any intention to impose the Sharia in France at any time in the future?
It is quite clear from all the above that the French society will not allow Islam to pose a challenge to its secular beliefs and traditions.
It is good of him to admit that what is happening here is just that: a challenge to French secularism. In other words, Abu Ziyaad would indeed wish to see France as an Islamic state.
That is why efforts to deform Islam in the minds of the Muslims are being made amidst the growing global Islamic resurgence. The aim is to teach the Muslim youth a version of Islam that will compel them to adopt the secular way of life as their only reference of conducting their affairs. In other words Muslims are being forced to completely integrate into the French society, where their name will be Muslim, but their thinking and their actions will be French.
Abu Ziyaad sees something worse than integration on the horizon:
Somewhat akin to what existed in Bosnia before the outbreak of civil war and the mass slaughter of secularized Muslims by their Serbian neighbours.
What’s in store?
The situation in France is expected to continue and even transfer to the rest of the Western world, especially Britain and America to a lesser or greater degree until Allah (swt) spreads His mercy on the Muslims by helping them to establish that sincere Islamic Khilafah State that gathers all Muslims, Arabs and non Arabs, blacks and whites, and even non Muslims (Dhimmi’s). It is only with the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah state that the humiliation of the Muslims will end and the Izzat [might, i.e., of Islam and the Muslim world] and dignity will reappear.
The “gathering” that a “sincere Islamic Khilafah State” has in mind for the dhimmis is something less than a marvel of tolerance. In Onward Muslim Soldiers I go straight to core texts of Islamic jurisprudence to show what this “gathering” really means. “The subject peoples,” according to a manual of Islamic law approved by Cairo’s prestigious Al-Azhar University, must “pay the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)” and “are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar); are not greeted with “˜as-Salamu “˜alaykum” [the traditional Muslim greeting, ‘Peace be with you’]; must keep to the side of the street; may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims” buildings, though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed; are forbidden to openly display wine or pork . . . recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals or feastdays; and are forbidden to build new churches.” If they violate these terms, the law further stipulates that they can be killed or sold into slavery at the discretion of the Muslim leader. (See “˜Umdat al-Salik, o11.3, 5).
I’d prefer to remain ungathered, thanks.
