Dave Petteys returns with a brief look at the Islamic doctrine of “individual Jihad”, and how it is misunderstood by the media and political leaders in Western countries.
“Terrorism” in the West

All the attacks in Ottawa and elsewhere are Islamic Jihad, not the work of “deranged young men who have been economically marginalized”, (as the Progressives attempt to rationalize the phenomenon). These attacks conform to the strategy first formulated by Abu Musab al-Suri., an Al Qaeda member and ideologue of Jihad. He rightly recognized the ability of the security services to take down hierarchical Jihad organizations and called for the following:
- Jihad websites and magazines to supply ideology, training, methodology and target selection.
- To encourage and support “individual Jihad”.
- This would be impossible for the security services to stop.
One only has to look at the online Al Qaeda magazine Inspire or the ISIS Magazine Dabiq and read the newspapers to see this strategy being made manifest. To term such attacks “lone wolf” is to misunderstand and ignore the Abu Musab al-Suri strategy: the attackers may be solitary, but they are not “alone”, nor are they without support.
The most bizarre aspect of all this disinformation and denial is the degree to which the government and the media try to disassociate Jihad from Islam. This catastrophic misunderstanding of Islamic doctrine, fostered by Muslim groups in the West, is the main issue. So let’s straighten this out!
The Qur’an is a collection of “recitations” of Muhammad’s revelations as taken down and recorded by his companions. The early “Meccan” Suras were conciliatory, peaceful and tolerant. They were necessarily so, owing to the fact that Muhammad’s movement was weak in those early days. After the Hijra (migration) to Medina, and the invention of Jihad, Muhammad’s movement became strong and ruled all of Arabia within ten years. His revelations became less tolerant and more violent.
The Saudis fund staff and formulate the curricula of their “Centers for Islamic Studies” at all the major Universities in the West. They would have us believe that the Meccan Suras are all there is, that the Meccan Suras are “the real Islam”. But this is a half-truth because it buries and ignores the Medinan Suras, which are just as much “the real Islam” as the Meccan ones.
This means it is madness to give the mosques and the 4200 Muslim Brotherhood jihadi front groups free rein in our society to proselytize, recruit and fundraise for Jihad in the United States. Islam is a totalitarian political movement whose ideology calls for our destruction. It is not a “religion” that deserves a free pass owing to our traditions of religious liberty. Unless we see the truth of this, we will eventually be destroyed.
