Many Western intellectuals,especially those of the LEFT,say that Ben Laden and other leaders of Al-Qaida,Hamas,Hizbullah,the Muslim Brotherhood are MANIPULATING religion.They are NOT religious,they use Islam to get POLITICAL power,they are cynical,intelligent,Machivellian.They hide behind religion.
I disagree because 9:111 says:
“Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they will HAVE the GARDEN(note:of PARADISE); they fight in Allah’s way, so THEY KILL and ARE KILLED; a PROMISE which is binding on Him in the TORAH and the GOSPEL and the KORAN; and who is more faithful to his COVENANT than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the BARGAIN which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.”
They are “to have the garden”if “kill and be killed”(for Allah).
1.”Promise”:the promise to send them to heaven for KILLING and BEING KILLED for Allah.
2.”Covenant”:the covenant to send them to heaven for killing/being killed for Allah
3.”Bargain”:the bargain to send them to heaven for killing/getting killed.
This site has THREE translations by MUSLIMS,one on top of another(Pickthal was a British convert to Islam):Pickthal,Yusufali,Shakir.
The text literally says there’s a promise in the Koran(and there is)to give you heaven for KILLING for Allah.Ben Laden can say:”I have not blown myself up.But based on 9:111 I have heaven assured,so it’s NOT necessary for myself to become a suicide bomber.I have KILLED for Allah by making the plans,getting the money,organizing the operations.”
The text also says it’s to be found in the TORAH and GOSPEL(which is FALSE).
JESUS OR MOHAMMED?
I had written about this in a French article but here I repeat it for those who only know English.There is a website called ABNSAT.COM(Aramaic Broadcasting Network Satellite)where they have programs on Islam/Christianity in ARABIC and ENGLISH.They have a program called JESUS OR MUHAMMED,with Pastor Joseph(ex-Muslim),David Wood(ex-atheist,now Christian,of answeringmuslims.com),and Sam Shamoun(who speaks Arabic and writes for ANSWERING-ISLAM.ORG,the best website in English on Islam).
