In the Name of Islam

By Daniel Greenfield

kenyaDenial is the first stage of coming to terms with the unthinkable.

In Westgate, a Kenyan mall oriented toward expats, terrorists separated Muslims from non-Muslims before killing them. The Muslims were allowed to go free if they could recite a Muslim prayer.

During the attack, Al Shabaab’s Arabic Twitter account quoted the Koran, “Plant firmly our feet and give us victory over (Al-Kafireen) the disbelieving people.”  (Koran 2:250). The Kuffar, the non-Muslims of Westgate, included small children.

“I don’t understand why you would shoot a five-year-old child,” one of the survivors said. But the five-year-old was not a Muslim.

Moments like these put the Clash of Civilizations into bloody context. This isn’t abstract politics. It’s not about economics, the environment or foreign policy. It’s about a worldview in which a five-year-old who can’t recite the Islamic confession of faith deserves to be killed.

The crime is not being a Muslim.

Or as Al Shabaab put it on Twitter, “Only Kuffar were singled out for this attack. All Muslims inside #Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen (Islamic Holy Warriors) before beginning the attack.”…

….After September 11, Osama bin Laden wrote a letter to the American people. “In the Name of Allah,” it began. Explaining what he wanted, “The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam,” he wrote.

America and Europe have accepted Mohammed and Osama bin Laden’s call. Islam is praised incessantly. Its mosques have a special status, its Mohammedan icons are sacred and its Korans are protected by distortions of the law.

But none of that will be enough.

Ask the five-year-old murdered at Westgate. To believe that anything short of total and absolute submission will suffice is denial. And to hope that even that will be enough is wishful thinking.

At the Khaybar Massacre and the birth of the battle cry Allahu Akbar, Mohammed’s cousin asked why he meant to massacre the Jews. “Fight with them until they bear testimony to the fact that there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his Messenger,” he replied.

That message in one form or another permeates Islam. It is the essence of the Jihad.

The five-year-old at Westgate, like the Jews of Khaybar, like the 3,000 dead on September 11 wouldn’t or couldn’t testify to that. So they were murdered for the glory of Islam and in the name of Islam.
