Syed Salahuddin says that only jihad, by which he clearly means armed struggle, can settle the Kashmir issue. I wonder which one of my books Salahuddin has been reading? After all, I am now responsible for Muslims who believe that jihad involves violence, as you can see from this tweet I received yesterday from Muslim writer Davi Barker, the husband of Hamas-linked CAIR’s truth-challenged Zahra Billoo:
Yes indeed, Davi, I taught Syed Salahuddin everything he knows. Bin Laden and Awlaki and Anjem Chaudary and Abu Bakar Bashir and Ajmal Kasab, too. And Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Omar Abdel Rahman. And Faisal Shahzad and Mohamed Mohamud. And Nidal Hasan and Naser Abdo. And Jihad Jane and Richard Reid, John Walker Lindh, Adam Gadahn — you name the Muslim inclined to violent jihad, and you’ll find one or more of my books on his shelf, yessiree. No Muslim would have gotten the idea that jihad had anything to do with violence were it not for my fiendish and extraordinarily powerful Zionist black arts. Why, just look at this:
Proof positive! I am the mastermind of the global jihad! And Davi Barker is an Islamic supremacist dissembler with a comic talent that rivals Reza Aslan‘s. Islamic supremacists’ attempts to cover up and whitewash the bloody reality of jihad grow more risible by the day, but mainstream media, law enforcement and government officials steadfastly refuse to laugh. Once they finally get the joke, it could be too late.
–˜Jihad can resolve Kashmir issue,– by Tariq Naqash for Dawn, January 6:
MUZAFFARABAD: United Jihad Council chairman and Hizbul Mujahideen “˜supreme commander” Syed Salahuddin said on Saturday that those calling for settlement of the Kashmir issue through peaceful means were in fact deceiving the innocent Kashmiris, adding that an armed struggle was the only way to resolve the dispute.
Addressing a press conference, he said that experience of the past 65 years should convince any one that only a strong and target-oriented armed struggle across held Kashmir could win freedom from Indian occupation.
“The Kashmiri people, leadership and the state of Pakistan should prepare themselves for it. Otherwise freedom will remain a distant dream,” he said.
The press conference was held at the end of a procession staged by the supporters of Hizbul Mujahideen to mark the “˜right to self-determination day”.
The UJC leader said he supported political movement but was opposed to what he called a fragmented and fractured political struggle. He claimed that about 150 rounds of talks with India had failed to produce anything.
He said it was the armed struggle that had forced foreign troops to leave Vietnam, Algeria, Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq and once again it was compelling the US and allies to withdraw from Afghanistan….
