Absolving Jihadis of Responsibility for Terrorism

The Islamic State (ISIS), al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups always claim that Muslim leaders who do not rule by Islamic sharia law — and those who obey them — are not Muslims. The terrorists consider them “hypocrites” (the Saudis), “rejectionists,” or “outsiders” (Iranians and Shias). Terrorists always use the concept of takfir to authorize and endorse violence against their enemies.

    Canada has about 0.002% of the World’s muslims.
    We are told to not judge the majority by the actions of a few among them.

    AGREE ……… that’s why I get my perception of islam by the 99.998% outside of Canada that all use the same quran that sanction murdering homosexuals and deems the current 6,000,000,000 non-muslims as enemies of islam to convert , or KILL.

    Justin’s muslim MP’s can rant all day long about islams peace and how the 99.998% have it all wrong ……..when close to 35% say they condone armed jihad for allah’s cause, I believe them that it’s part of muhamads jihad and dawah .

    The author is confusing “takfir” with “jihad” with the statement “Terrorists always use the concept of takfir to authorize and endorse violence against their enemies”. Takfir is a heightened form of apostasy and is used to justify violence against those who have departed from the ways of the faith of Islam. By definition this would mean violence against other Muslims. Jihad is used to justify the conversion, killing or subjugation of non-Muslims and should be the greater concern of those charged with protecting the free world from Islam.
