During last week’s OSCE/ODIHR conference in Warsaw, the Counterjihad Collective organized a side event entitled “Why Does Europe Hate Speech?” The following video from the event shows a talk given by retired Maj. Stephen Coughlin on the Muslim Brotherhood’s long-term plans for jihad — both kinetic and non-kinetic — which are even now bearing fruit, both at the OSCE and elsewhere.
In his talk Maj. Coughlin discusses, among other things, The Quranic Concept of War, a book that was written in 1979 by the serving Brigadier General S. K. Malik when he was chief of staff of the Pakistani army. President Zia ul Haq declared the book to be his country’s military doctrine. The Advocate General in Pakistan, a man named Brohi, affirmed that it was law.
So it’s a significant book, and well worth paying attention to.

In his book Gen. Malik writes:
So spirited, zealous, complete and thorough should be our preparation for war that we should enter upon the ‘war of muscles’ having already won the ‘war of will’. Only a strategy that aims at striking terror into the hearts of the Enemies from the preparation stage can produce direct results and turn Liddell Hart’s dream into a reality. (p. 58)
He also says, “We do not even start the fighting war until we have already assessed that the war has been won. We have already made the enemy surrender mentally.”
From pages 57 to 58, he includes the four following quotes from the Koran to make his point.
I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (Qur’an 8: 12)
Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers. (Qur’an 3: 151)
And those of the People of the Book who aided them, Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts, so that some ye slew, and some ye made prisoners [the women and the children]. And he made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which ye had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things. (Qur’an 33: 26-27)
Let not the unbelievers think that they can get the better (of the Godly): they will never frustrate them. Against them make ready your strength of the utmost of your power, including steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah any your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. (Qur’an 8:56-60)
Based on the above citations from the Koran, Gen. Malik concludes:
TERROR struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means; it is an end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet and merge. TERROR is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him.
Thus his conclusion is that the Quranic concept of war is terror, with four quotes from the Koran to back up his argument. His final sentences at the end of the same chapter are very important:
