Ramadan: More Bloodshed Expected This Month Because “Jihad is the Best Form of Worship”

Ramadan: More Bloodshed Expected This Month Because “Jihad is the Best Form of Worship”

MAY 6, 2019 7:30 AM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS40 COMMENTS

Ramadan has just begun and while most Islamic adherents simply pray a significant count of others gear up for martyrdom and rewards in paradise: “terrorist groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and the Taliban in recent days made their annual call to arms as Ramadan approaches, claiming Allah exceptionally rewards martyrdom during the holy month.”

There is no other religion but Islam that invokes the tenets of its faith to commit violence against unbelievers and even sanctions the death penalty upon those Muslims who choose to become “disbelievers”….

And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may strike terror into the hearts of the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know, whom Allah knows. (Qur’an 8:60)

I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip. (Qur’an 8:12)

Then, when infidels become terrorized and fearful, they are deemed to be “Islamophobes” and “racists”who are worthy of punishment and disdain.

Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban wrote “As jihad is … the best part of worship, doing it on Ramadan is rewarded more than in other months.”

As much as Muslim Brotherhood linked groups fool Westerners into believing that the Islamic State and Al Qaeda have nothing to do with Islam, such groups routinely invoke Islamic texts and pray fervently right before committing their atrocities. Recall, the jihadist Easter church bomber in Sri Lanka spent hours praying in a mosque before his attack on peaceful Christian worshipers. In many reports Yazidi women talked about how their Islamic State captors prayed before raping and torturing them because they knew that raping infidel “slaves” was sanctioned by their religion.

From rapes and torture to murders and persecution, the world is tormented by those adherents of Islam who execute their religious duty of abuse and hate against infidels.

Robert Spencer discusses in this interview (@8:00) why Ramadan is considered the month of jihad and how devotion to Allah is the motivator.

“‘Jihad Is the Best Part of Worship’: Taliban, Islamic State Gear Up for Ramadan”, by Edwin Mora, Breitbart, May 4, 2019:

Terrorist groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) and the Taliban in recent days made their annual call to arms as Ramadan approaches, claiming Allah exceptionally rewards martyrdom during the holy month.
This year, the holiest month for Muslims is expected to run from the evening of May 5 to June 5, depending on the phases of the moon.

On April 29, days after ISIS claimed to have carried out the wave of suicide bombings primarily targeting Christians in Sri Lanka, the group’s elusive leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, resurfaced in his first video in five years. He urged Muslims to carry out more attacks and pledged to continue the crusade against ISIS enemies, particularly those who demolished the so-called caliphate.

“Our battle today is one of attrition and stretching the enemy. They should know that jihad is ongoing until the day of judgment,” al-Baghdadi proclaimed.

In March, U.S.-backed Kurdish forces pushed ISIS out of its last sliver of territory in northern Syria’s Baghouz region, dealing a final blow to the group’s territorial caliphate.

“Truthfully, the battle of Islam and its people against the cross and its people is a long battle. The battle of Baghouz is over. But it did show the savagery, brutality and ill intentions of the Christians towards the Muslim community,” Baghdadi further declared in the video.

“This is part of the vengeance that awaits the crusaders and their henchmen,” he added, celebrating the heinous attack against Christians in Sri Lanka and beyond, calling it revenge for the complete demise of ISIS’s territorial caliphate in Iraq and Syria in March.

Althouh it is unclear if the so-called caliph mentioned the holy month, some analysts argue that the new video is a rallying call for a global wave of jihad in the lead-up to Ramadan.

Citing unnamed Arab and European intelligence officials as well as terrorism experts such as Haroro Ingram from George Washington University, the Washington Post reported, “The experts and officials noted that the video was released days before the beginning of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, and said the timing could encourage ISIS cells and followers to commit attacks in the next weeks.”

ABC News further noted:

Baghdadi appeared healthy in a black headscarf, khaki fishing vest and with a bushy grey beard, dyed with red henna in a Ramadan tradition many trace to the Prophet Mohammed, whom Baghdadi claims a direct family lineage to. By his side was a Russian AK-74U assault rifle.

“As the holy fasting month of Ramadan begins in just days, experts warn there could be even more [ISIS] attacks looming,” the Associated Press (AP) added.

On Monday, Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, posted a statement on Twitter rejecting a Ramadan ceasefire offer by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

“As jihad is … the best part of worship, doing it on Ramadan is rewarded more than in other months,” he wrote….
