“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29
Muslim spokesmen in the West routinely claim that this verse has no applicability in the modern world. They’re lying.
“Muslim Group Threatens Egypt’s Coptic Christians; Tells Them to ‘Pay Tribute,'” from the Christian Post, January 27 (thanks to David):
An armed Islamic movement calling itself the “Brigade of Muslims” released a statement on Saturday threatening Egypt’s Coptic Christians and asking them to pay tribute.
“Egypt is an Islamic country and will be ruled according to Shariah,” the statement added.
The movement threatened all Egyptian media professionals who “mock religion and Islamic rule,” adding that it has a special list of media professionals and their persistence in mocking will result in the “shedding of their blood in the ugliest way.”
The movement explained that it has been established because of the strife being plotted against the country and the plans of enemies of Islam, both at home and abroad.
The movement accused Copts of trying to create a “separate Coptic state,” accused the National Salvation Front of involvement in the burning of Egypt, and accused the so-called corrupt media of distorting the image of Muslims and Islamic rule.
The movement noted its approach is jihad, and it would fight the Egyptian army and Interior Ministry if they do not stand up to “Copts and their helpers.”
“Let the unbelievers and the hypocrites know we are as keen on dying for the sake of God as they are keen on life,” the movement confirmed.
Islamic supremacists avowedly and proudly love death. A Muslim child preacher recently taunted those he has been taught to hate most: “Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan.” Jihad mass murderer Mohamed Merah said that he “loved death more than they loved life.” Nigerian jihadist Abubakar Shekau said: “I’m even longing for death, you vagabond.”
Ayman al-Zawahiri’s wife advised Muslim women: “I advise you to raise your children in the cult of jihad and martyrdom and to instil in them a love for religion and death.” And as one jihadist put it, “We love death. You love your life!” And another: “The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death.” That was from Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah
Of course, this idea comes from the Qur’an itself: “Say (O Muhammad): O ye who are Jews! If ye claim that ye are favoured of Allah apart from (all) mankind, then long for death if ye are truthful.” — Qur’an 62:6
