Anestos Canelides’ latest essay concerns Faisal Mohammad, the young culture-enricher who stabbed and injured four people at the University of California Merced on November 4 before being shot dead by campus police. Publication of this piece was delayed first by the Paris Massacre and then by the San Bernardino Massacre. Yet it is closely related to both events, even though the incident in Merced was of lesser scope — in all these cases, the perpetrators were following the Way of Mohammed.
UC Merced Stabber: Al Sunna, The Way of Mohammed
by Anestos Canelides
Current reports have now identified Faisal Mohammad, the UC Merced stabber, as a follower of ISIS and other extremist Muslim organizations. His was not a case of anger or mental illness; he was simply following the way of Mohammed, or what is called Al Sunna.
To understand why he committed this act of violence, we have to have a better knowledge of political Islam and the terms it uses. We also need to understand the violent doctrine of Al Sunna that the stabber most likely learned from reading the Sira — the biography of Mohammed — and the Hadiths or traditions. As a truly orthodox Muslim he believed it was the will of Allah that he should stab his fellow students in class.
Concerning the UC Merced stabber, in the daily intercourse on Facebook one could learn how amazingly ignorant many Leftists are, who simply do not understand the true nature of political Islam. when the topic of Islamic terrorism comes up, these Islamic apologists usually go off-topic and bring up the wrongs done by Christians, or by what is written in the Old Testament. Most of them have never read the Qur’an, the Sira, or the Hadiths, and do not have any concept what is meant by Al Sunna, or the Way of Mohammed.
As Dr. Bill Warner, a scholar of Islam, says: In Christianity it is often asked, “What would Jesus do?” In Islam the question “What would Muhammad do?” is answered by Al Sunna.
Most of the text of Islam’s three sacred books speaks about the Kafir or the unbeliever, which makes Islam more political than religious. According to Dr. Warner, 60% of the trilogy is committed to the Kafir. In the Hadiths the topic takes up 37%, in the Qur’an 62%, and in the Sira 37%.
Islam dedicates a lot of space to the Kafir, who are also called: polytheists, atheists, agnostics, people of the book (Christians and Jews) and pagans. But no matter what their religion, they are they all treated with the same hostility, and are to be dominated by Islam under Al Sunna, or the way of Muhammad.
According to Islamic doctrine a kafir is not merely someone who does not agree with Islam. A Kafir is considered evil and the lowest form of life. He is someone who can be deceived, tortured, hated, enslaved, killed, lied to, and cheated.
Those Muslims who follow Al Sunna, “What did Mohammed do”, are often referred to as “radical Muslims” or sometimes “orthodox Muslims”. A more fitting name for them, however, would be “Al Sunna Muslims” — which should not be confused with Sunni Muslims.
The Qur’an is clear about what Mohammed did with the Kafir of his time. A true Muslim must follow this example, as ISIS does.
|A Kafir can be mocked|
|83:34||On that day the faithful will mock the Kafir, while they sit on bridal couches and watch them. Should not the Kafir be paid back for what they did?|
|A Kafir can be beheaded|
|47:4||When you encounter the Kafirs on the battlefield, cut off their heads until you have thoroughly defeated them and then take the prisoners and tie them up firmly.|
|A Kafir can be plotted against|
|They plot and scheme against you (Muhammad) and I plot and scheme against them, therefore deal calmly with the Kafir and leave them alone for a while.|
|A Kafir can be terrorized|
|8:12||Then the Lord spoke to His angels and said, “I will be with you. Give strength to the believers. I will send terror into the Kafirs hearts, cut off their heads and even the tip of their fingers!”|
|A Muslim is not the friend of a Kafir|
|Believers should not take Kafirs as friends to preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah’s protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him.|
|A Kafir is cursed|
|33:60||They (Kafirs) will be cursed, whenever they are found, they will be seized and murdered. It was Allah’s same practice with those who came before them, you will find no change in Allah’s ways.|
The Merced stabber was truly Al Sunna, and he was doing exactly what Mohammed did as Islam’s so-called Prophet. There are many examples of applied Al Sunna to be found in current events as well as in history. The terrorist group known as the Islamic State or ISIS is a very good example of Al Sunna.
This does not mean that all Muslims are terrorists, which is a good thing, considering that there are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world. Imagine what a hell our lives would become if all Muslims followed Al Sunna and did what Mohammed did!
With President Obama allowing in more so-called “refugees” into America this will only get worse. Which is a good reason why all Americans should support the Second Amendment.
