You Can ‘Kill Some Christians Today,’ Says Egypt’s Secretary-General of Islamic Jihad Party

“Mohamed Abu Samra, secretary-general of the Islamic Jihad Party, made the claim that “it is permissible to kill some Christians today,” then gave his argument defending such a position.
He justified this announcement by saying: “Those who came out with weapons, their blood is allowed for us [to spill], as a fighter is not considered dhimmi.”
Dhimma is the Islamic law that specifies non-Muslims are to be protected residents within the Islamic state in exchange for taxes.

“In the recent funeral, the Christians brought the Qur’an and urinated on it. The Sheikh of Al-Azhar did not deny it. They also came out in demonstrations to destroy Muslim places, chanting ‘We’ll bring Islam down by any means possible,'” Samra said during an interview with Egyptian newspaper Al-Watan on Wednesday.
