A state of perpetual war

A state of perpetual war

Today I had a Twitter exchange with the sort of Muslim that the press wants us to believe doesn’t really exist. He not only exists, we’ve been at war with his compatriots for centuries now. His worldview is that humankind will remain in a state of perpetual war until everybody either converts to Islam, submits to second-class citizenship called dhimmitude, or dies.

The brilliant psychiatrist Dr. Wafa Sultan has spent the last thirteen years fearlessly debating Islamic radicals. As a result she must have armed bodyguards with her at all times. Of course.


A memorable evisceration was her debate with Omar Bakri Muhammed, former UK leader of the terrorist-supporting political movement Hizb ut-Tahrir. Bakri left the UK on August 6, 2005—my birthday!—when he got wind of a British plan to prosecute terrorism-inciting Muslim clerics for treason. He moved to Lebanon and was banned from returning to Britain. During the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War, he tried to flee Lebanon on a Royal Navy ship evacuating British citizens, but he was turned away.

Now he’s begging to come back to the UK because he says he’s being repeatedly imprisoned and tortured by Lebanese authorities.

He was singing a different tune when he debated Wafa Sultan.

In case the video can’t be shown in your country, here are his relevant comments.

Sharia has defined human rights for Muslims and for non-Muslims. The non-Muslim has chosen not to accept the judgements of Allah. Therefore his rights differ from those of a Muslim. I say that they are not equal.

A non-Muslim under the Islamic sharia cannot have any rights except those which Allah has legislated for him. Allah has legislated that he may have his belief, religion, clothes, and everything which is needed by all citizens, Muslim or non-Muslim.

Now the Muslim has greater rights and respect because he is Muslim, for Islam is above all others, and never below, so the Muslim is above others and never below…

I don’t believe in the equality of man, because men are not equal in the eyes of Allah. He commanded us to not make them equal. For example, I have the right to marry a Christian or Jewish girl, but it is not permissible for a Jewish man to marry a Muslim girl. This is correct. I am not calling for equality.

When I go to Britain or Europe, I have the same rights—my blood and property are inviolable. In exchange, their blood and property are inviolable through this peace treaty. Their blood and property have no protection except through a peace treaty or dhimmi pact.


Thus Allah has commanded. You can either accept it or reject it.

I invite [non-Muslims], and if they accept the command of Allah, then they may do so. If they don’t accept, and kick me out of the country, then we will fight against them. The relationship between us is either a pact of belief in Allah, a peace treaty, or war. The general rule is that the blood and property of non-Muslims are permissible for us. Their blood and property are not inviolable.

It is in their interest to have a peace treaty or dhimmi pact with me. It is in your interest, you who do not believe in Islam, to accept that there be a peace treaty of dhimmi pact between us. The dhimmi pact falls under the Islamic sharia, but the peace treaty does not subject you to the sharia. That’s the way it is. Either you accept it, or we live in a state of war.

The general rule is that the blood and property of infidels are permissible for Muslims. The Prophet Muhammed even said, “I was sent to fight against the people until they testify that there is no God but Allah, and I am the apostle of Allah.

Therefore if he said, “Their blood and property are inviolable from me,” then their blood and property would be inviolable if they believed in Islam or accepted a peace treaty. It is either through faith or a peace treaty that man lives with his neighbor. But a Muslim coexists with an infidel either through a peace treaty, a dhimmi pact, or a state of war.

This is the basic relationship between a Muslim and an infidel.

In a dhimmi pact, the non-Muslim agrees to pay a jizya (poll tax) and submit to Islamic law.

As for peace treaties, they don’t actually exist. This passage from The Islamic Concept of Justice, by Majid Khadduri and R. K. Ramazani, discusses Dar al-Islam (the House of Submission) and Dar al-Harb (the House of War). The House of Submission is the Muslim part of the world, and the House of War is the non-Muslim part. In Muslim “jurisprudence,” the legal definition of non-Muslims is people upon whom Muslims are required to wage war.




The Sunni Muslim tafsir are scholarly commentaries on the Koran. They have a lot to say about peace treaties.

Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs.


Tafsir al-Jalalayn.


Both have the same message: Muslims should not make peace with non-Muslims if Muslims are winning the war.

Which brings me to my Twitter conversation today. An American man said he wanted to go to Canada to behead another Muslim for criticizing certain aspects of sharia. I congratulated Yunus Sanchez for now being on the FBI’s watch list. He said he was already on the list and had been visited several times by the FBI, even when he didn’t make death threats “per se.”

He commended me on my politeness, and then we had the following exchange.


He didn’t like that, so as he made his Grand Flouncing Exit with a Pithy Parting Shot™, he let the mask drop.


I already knew that Muslim terrorists and their supporters see non-Muslims as non-human. The Islamic State isn’t about saving our souls from hellfire, as they claim. It’s an exterminationist movement. Non-Muslims will be exterminated either by converting to Islam or by dying. Life as a dhimmi is horrific, which is a feature of the religion, not a bug. Dhimmis are considered war booty and possessions of Muslims. This is to force non-Muslims to convert or die.

Dhimmitude also provides a convenient outlet for the rage-filled subjects of a vicious theocratic dictatorship. Dhimmis and non-Muslims can be treated any way a Muslim wants. As Omar Bakri Muhammed said, our blood belongs to Muslims, so they can do as they please with us. Humanity’s basest instincts are expressed in the Islamic State.

To their credit, the British are not allowing the screeching, whining, blubbering Omar Bakri Muhammed back into the UK. If he’s being tortured by the Lebanese, I say, “Good.”

How does it feel to have your blood belong to someone else, Omar?

Today al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula murdered Luke Somers, an American photojournalist.


Somers’ captors shot him during an American rescue attempt. A Muslim funnyman tweeted this in response.

Muslim sympathy

Sweetheart, I’m not surprised that in your tribal, backward, primitive triumphalism, you overlooked something: The US located Somers twice in the wastelands of Yemen. That’s incredible.

You have no navy, no air force, and no satellites. Your terrorists have virtually no training. You continue to exist only because civilized nations have not deemed you an existential threat.
