Before you leave a comment like this, which claims that there is a
“constant stereotyping and bashing [that] the media gives Islam,”
“War [in Islam], therefore, is the last resort, and is subject to the rigorous conditions laid down by the sacred law. The term ‘jihad’ literally means ’struggle’. Muslims believe that there are two kinds of jihad. The other ‘jihad’ is the inner struggle of the soul which everyone wages against egotistic desires for the sake of attaining inner peace.”
or any other apologia, make sure that you’ve explained what the true, real Islam is to these guys:
Hamas MP and Cleric Yunis Al-Astal in a Friday Sermon: We Will Conquer Rome, and from There Continue to Conquer the Two Americas and Eastern Europe

This man claims to be a Muslim. He states:
Allah has chosen you for Himself and for His religion, so that you will serve as the engine pulling this nation to the phase of succession, security, and consolidation of power, and even to conquests thorough da’wa and military conquests of the capitals of the entire world. Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad. Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs in Palestine in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam – this capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.
I believe that our children or our grandchildren will inherit our Jihad and our sacrifices, and Allah willing, the commanders of the conquest will come from among them. Today, we instill these good tidings in their souls, and by means of the mosques and the Koran books, and the history of our Prophets, his companions, and the great leaders, we prepare them for the mission of saving humanity from the hellfire on the brink of which they stand.
Hmm… it sounds to me that he is confirming that the violent, irrational version of Islam that people (whom Muslims and idiots like to label “Islamophobes”) complain about so much, is, in fact, a problem.
So, before you come here sniveling about how I have misconceptions about Islam, ask yourself:
- Have you told HAMAS about their misconceptions?
- Have you told HAMAS that they are not Muslims?
- Isn’t it your duty as a Muslim to fight against the enemies of Islam?
- Isn’t the fact that HAMAS is actually stating things such as the above worse than someone like myself merely pointing to their words with disapproval?
- Do you really believe in your faith?
- Then why the heck don’t you think HAMAS is an enemy of Islam?
- Why no jihad on HAMAS?
- Doesn’t Allah reward the strugglers more than the sitters?
- Why are you still sitting?
- Get your ass to Gaza and wage jihad (i.e. a defensive war against the enemies of Islam) on HAMAS, you are a Muslim aren’t you?
Or perhaps you are a hypocrite.
What does Allah think of hypocrites?
