The last part of this, Ahmedzay’s rant against “Zionist Jews,” not reproduced below, was reported yesterday. This report is extraordinary for the fact that it shows Ahmedzay quoting Qur’an 9:111 to justify suicide bombing. This is a common tactic of suicide bombing recruiters, but to point it out in teh West usually brings one a charge of “Islamophobia.” I guess Ahmedzay must be an “Islamophobe.” “Zarein Ahmedzay’s statement when he pleaded guilty to terrorist charges,” from the New York Post, April 23 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
“Your Honor, I would like to quote from the Qur’an.”
“Quote, Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their wealth for the price of Paradise, to fight in the way of Allah, to kill and get killed. It is a promise binding on the truth in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur’an, end of quote.
That’s Qur’an 9:111, the justification for suicide attacks. The only guarantee of Paradise in the Qur’an is this verse, which guarantees it to those who kill and are killed for Allah.
This once again underscores the jihadist contention that they represent Islamic authenticity — a charge never yet refuted by Muslim “moderates” in any way that has proven effective to change jihadists’ minds.
