The following clip contains excerpts from an Islamic State propaganda video that was released after the recent jihad massacre in Barcelona. It’s a reminder that one of the engines driving the Great Jihad is the urgent imperative to reclaim territory that has been lost to the Ummah.
It doesn’t matter that Iberia, a.k.a. al-Andalus, was first claimed for the Ummah through violent conquest. Once a plot of land belongs to the Ummah, Islamic law insists that it remain Islamic in perpetuity. If non-believers happen to reoccupy the territory, it is only a temporary usurpation, to be rectified by the Muslims as soon they have mustered sufficient strength to launch a victorious jihad against it.
The same applies to all pieces of land occupied by Muslims, no matter how small, including cemeteries and “Islamic cultural centers”. It’s worth remembering that fact the next time Muslims in your area apply to the local council or planning commission for permission to open a mosque or break ground for a cemetery.
