Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.And yet all the world is shocked when a Muslim defends fighting unbelievers.
London, June 7 (ANI): An Islamic preacher told his students that it was difficult to argue with the views of Osama bin Laden and said “terrorism works” during a speech at a university in London.So when a Muslim says, "According to Islam, we are in a permanent state of war with those who oppose Islam," it's perfectly acceptable. But when I say, "According to Islam, Muslims are in a permanent state of war with those who oppose Islam," I'm a racist, Islamophobic, hate-mongering bigot.
Abdur Raheem Green, a Muslim convert and former public schoolboy, said that a “permanent state of war exists between the people of Islam and the people who opposed Islam,” while addressing students at University College London (UCL).
He gave the speech to the university’s Islamic society while Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab, the Detroit bomber, was a student there in 2005, the Telegraph reports.
Referring to Osama in his 2005 UCL speech, Green, who claims he is not an extremist, said that it was difficult to argue with his views.
“His rational [sic] is, we are going to keep on killing your women and children until you stop killing our women and children. How do you argue with that?” said Green in his speech.
"The other thing is that it seems that terrorism works. We certainly have precedent,” he added.
The disclosure follows a statement by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, in which she said there had been “complacency” by universities about Islamic extremism.
Qasim Rafiq, a spokesman for the Federation of Student Islamic Societies, invited Green to speak at UCL along with two speakers from the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir and another who has supported the Taliban.
Since then, Green has been invited to give lectures at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies, Queen Mary and Bart’s and at UCL.
A spokesman for UCL said the inquiry had been aware of the speech but added that according to the law that cannot operate a ‘no platform’ policy in relation to speakers with controversial, distasteful or even repugnant views. (Source)
