Never mind that it didn’t happen. “Afghan Ulema demands hand over of desecrators of Holy Quran,” from GEO World News, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
KABUL: At least three hundred Ulema in Afghanistan have demanded the US that those responsible for the desecration of the Holy Quran at Guantanamo Bay must be handed over in three days otherwise a Jihad would be launched against the US.
What was that thing that happened on 9/11/01?
That wasn’t a jihad?
This is another example of a tendency that has run through Islamic history: when something happens that Muslims see as a provocation, they declare jihad and use it as a pretext for jihad recruitment. What if a jihad was already going on? No matter: the pretext changes, the jihad remains. I wrote an article about this recently. Remember this the next time someone tells you that if only we would leave Iraq, or stop supporting Israel, or what have you, there would be peace with the Islamic world. That idea is based on ignorance of the jihad ideology.
