It would be refreshing if Kerry would open his well-thumbed Qur’an and explain to us exactly how the Islamic State has “hijacked” Islam. One wonders also why religion hijackers seem so exclusively drawn to Islam, as there are no notable attempts to hijack Christianity or Judaism.

“Kerry brands ISIS ‘apostates,’” Agence France Presse, February 2, 2016:

ROME: With an unusual choice of language, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry waded into Islamic theological debate on Tuesday when he branded ISIS “apostates.”

The United States affords its citizens religious freedom and does not consider apostasy a crime, but Kerry chose the term to rubbish the jihadis’ claims of piety.

“Daesh is in fact nothing more than a mixture of killers, of kidnappers, of criminals, of thugs, of adventurers, of smugglers and thieves,” he declared.

“And they are also above all apostates, people who have hijacked a great religion and lie about its real meaning and lie about its purpose and deceive people in order to fight for their purposes.”

Some Muslim legal scholars consider the proper punishment for turning one’s back on the faith to be death and several majority Islamic countries execute convicted apostates….

Note from America at War :

This is a tale told often. That these murderous radicals have somehow “hijacked” Islam. When the fact is what they are practicing is TRUE ISLAM, as put forth in the Q’uran. They are actually what you’d call “fundamentalists”. Practicing the fundamentals of Islam. In other words they are devout Muslims. It’s that simple. They have not “hijacked” anything. In fact, IF there is such a thing as a “peaceful” Muslim……….. Then it would be THEM who hijacked Islam, because for well over 1400 years Islam has been violent.

  1. And I have a friend who is ex-Muslim and a Doctor, so I already knew more than I wanted to know about Islam. 
    One thing that we should know is in our history. It was about the year 1800.

    Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked the Ambassador of Tripoli why they were attacking U.S. merchant ships and enslaving the sailors without provocation from the U.S.

    Thomas Jefferson then wrote a letter to John Jay that read:

    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman [Muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    This is loosely based upon the Qur’an’s teaching from Surah 47:4 which reads,

    “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost.”

    This cycle of violent and unprovoked oppression started with Muhammad and has been repeated throughout the 1300 plus year history of Islam, having at one time conquered and held 3 times as many square miles as the ancient Roman empire.
