These misunderstanders of Islam somehow got the crazy notions that Muslims should only submit to Sharia, and that Muslims should physically attack those whom they consider to be the enemies of Islam — and that such attacks are called jihad. Ahmed Rehab, call your office!
“Jihadist Calls on Muslims in France to Become a ‘Trojan Horse’ and Attack French Civilians,” from MEMRI, January 23:
The following is a message to France from the Mujahideen of Syria that was posted on the Internet on January 23, 2013.
Jihadist: This Message is addressed to the French Republic and its people from the Mujahideen of Syria, following the French government’s decision to attack our noble brothers, who instated the shari’a, who fought polytheism, who spread monotheism in northern Mali — the law of Allah, the shari’a, the only legislation to which a Muslim may submit.
The most fundamental right of a Muslim is to live according to his religion, and his duty is to strive to instate it on the lands of Islam.
A Mujahid fights so that the word of Allah may reign supreme.
The simple reason that drives France and its allies to attack and kill those who establish the shari’a in Muslim countries is that they want to maintain the subservient regimes that agreed to be their vassals, to serve their interests in Muslim countries, and to oppress them with their tyranny.
As a result of the decision of the French government, which is not satisfied with preventing our virtuous sisters from donning the veil in accordance with Allah’s decree, and with constantly fighting Islam and the Muslims…
Today, in addition to its presence alongside the Crusaders in Afghanistan, France has become the banner of heresy and of the enemies of Allah, by attacking Islamic Mali.
As a bitter consequence, we urge and encourage Muslims worldwide, as well as those living in France, to perform their religious duty like a Trojan horse — to hit French interests, their institutions, their military, and their civilians, on the national territory (of France), as well as abroad.
The aim is to terrorize them, so that the French people will have to blame their Satanic leaders for their decision, leading to the loss of the security and tranquility they once enjoyed.
They will not enjoy them anymore as long as France continues to act as an enemy of Islam and the Muslims.
We remain confident in the true promise of Allah that He will bring victory to those who support His religion, and that those who are slain for the sake of Allah will live in His Paradise, whereas the disbelievers who are killed are tormented in their graves, waiting to be fuel in the Hellfire.
I will conclude this statement by inviting you to join Islam, to read the Koran, and to follow His last Prophet and Messenger, who was sent in compassion to all of mankind to free them from submission to other men and from the worship of idols, and (to direct mankind) to submit to Allah and to worship Him exclusively.
Blow them up wherever they are, and slaughter them.
Expel them for the hills of Jerusalem and defeat them.
