Recently, while speaking on the campus of The University of California in San Diego, David Horowitz, well-known speaker and writer, encountered the student you will see and hear in the video below. She represented the Muslim Students Association on that campus. Her comments are stirring, but even more provoking, are the thoughts expressed by Horowitz as he concluded his remarks to her. Many Americans believe that Muslims who sanction Jihad are the radical adherents of the religion. The Quran, however, is replete with admonitions for followers to “slay”, “smite”, “destroy” and “kill” its adversaries. Those Islamic people who participate in Jihad are those who are diligently obeying their “holy” book. Christians must be aware of the relevance that Jihad has to the very heart of the Muslim faith. One cannot be a faithful Muslim without believing that Christians should be killed. The Horowitz incident is captured here: youtube link
Now read a few passages from the Quran. There is no ambiguity in these words. And make no mistake about it, those of us who believe that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth and the life” are the “enemy” in these passages from the Quran:
Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain (Surah 47:4).
And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah…. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them…. And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah’s purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not…. O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there be of you twenty stedfast they shall overcome two hundred, and if there be of you a hundred stedfast they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are a folk without intelligence…. It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world and Allah desireth (for you) the Hereafter, and Allah is Mighty, Wise. Had it not been for an ordinance of Allah which had gone before, an awful doom had come upon you on account of what ye took. Now enjoy what ye have won, as lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful (Surah 8:39,57,59-60,65,67-69)
Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that ye hate a thing which is good for you, and it may happen that ye love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, ye know not. They question thee (O Muhammad) with regard to warfare in the sacred month. Say: Warfare therein is a great (transgression), but to turn (men) from the way of Allah, and to disbelieve in Him and in the Inviolable Place of Worship, and to expel his people thence, is a greater with Allah; for persecution is worse than killing. And they will not cease from fighting against you till they have made you renegades from your religion, if they can (Surah 2:216-217).
