Anjem Choudary, a British Muslim activist, clarifies a point that many have suspected and known for quite some time. He, in a interview with RT, says that “terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam.”
This he gets from the Qur’an, chapter 8 verse 60, which states to “prepare as much as you can steeds of war to terrorize the enemy.”
This comes in response to a question posed to him concerning the act of ISIS beheading journalists: can Islamists “hold an individual responsible, for the actions of a collective?”
“Well, as you know, as a lecturer in Sharia law, I would say to the people in Russia, the Muslims and the non-Muslims, that every action for a Muslim must be based upon the Qur’an, the word of Allah, and the teachings of the messenger Mohammed… who is the final messenger for mankind,” Choudary said.
“I mean I would first invite the people to think about and embrace Islam but those who are already Muslim must know that Allah mentions in the Qur’an in fact if you look in chapter 8 verse 60, he said prepare as much as you can steeds of war to terrorize the enemy. So terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam. I mean this is something that we must embrace and understand as far as jurisprudence of Islam is concerned.”
He went on further to say that Muslims don’t differentiate between “civilians and military” because civilians are those who put the people in charge to make the decisions. He continues by calling journalists the propaganda machines of the Obama administration.
