The Obama administration continues its absurd Islamic proclamations devoid of Islamic theology.
Over the past four years, Obama and his yapping minions have insisted that the Islamic State “is not Islamic” despite their every action, every declaration being based on Islamic texts and teachings. The Islamic State prays around every murder, every rape, every conquest. Muhammad is their model. The Islamic State kills Muslims who have “betrayed” Islam — secular Muslims, Shia Muslims, apostates.
So I cannot help but be bemused and amused by John Kerry, world-renowned Islamic scholar, declaring the Islamic State faithful to be “apostates.” What school of Islamic jurisprudence is Kerry basing this on? First, it’s “ISIS has nothing to do with Islam” and now, when it can no longer be denied, it’s, “well — they’re Islamic apostates!” These are the people in charge of our security?
The former Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Adel Kalbani, said, “ISIS have the same beliefs as we do.” The Islamic State explains their every action using the Quran, hadith and sira.
It is interesting that when the Obama administration could no longer deny the connection between the Islamic State and Islam, they have resorted to using Islamic terminology to explain them. Obama is far more the apostate than the devout Muslims serving the Islamic State: he was raised a Muslim and his father was a Muslim, making him a Muslim according to Islamic law. But now he identifies as a Christian. So here we have the apostate President’s non-Muslim Secretary of State declaring that people whose every move is guided by the Quran are apostates. It would be a great comedy if so many people weren’t getting killed.
John Kerry calls ISIS ‘apostates’ By Arutz Sheva Staff, February 2, 2016:
With unusual choice of language, US Secretary of State wades into Islamic theology, claims Islamic State not true Muslims but ‘apostates.
With an unusual choice of language, US Secretary of State John Kerry waded into Islamic theological debate on Tuesday when he branded the Islamic State terror group “apostates.”
The United States affords its citizens religious freedom and does not consider apostasy a crime, but Kerry chose the term to rubbish the jihadists’ claims of piety.
“Daesh is in fact nothing more than a mixture of killers, of kidnappers, of criminals, of thugs, of adventurers, of smugglers and thieves,” he declared using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.
“And they are also above all apostates, people who have hijacked a great religion and lie about its real meaning and lie about its purpose and deceive people in order to fight for their purposes.”
Some Muslim legal scholars consider the proper punishment for turning one’s back on the faith to be death and several majority Islamic countries execute convicted apostates.
ISIS claims to have founded a “caliphate” based on its interpretation of Islamic sharia law and itself often brands its Muslim enemies apostates.
Kerry was in Rome on Tuesday for a meeting of the 23 nations at the core of the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria and supporting local forces.
The end of a news conference by Kerry and Italy’s foreign minister Paolo Gentiloni was briefly disrupted by protesters alleging US policy had caused the jihadists’ rise.
