Monitor The Strategic Trends

The Rise of Islam Introduction:


With the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, it has become of paramount importance to understand the origin, nature, and agenda of Islam. While there is no intent here to impugn the many peace-loving Muslims with the aggressive actions of the militant leadership, it is critical to recognize this most threatening challenge to Christians, Jews, and to Western civilization.

Contrary to popular understanding, Islam did not begin with Mohammad. Most of the practices still embodied in Islam had their beginning in pre-Islamic Arabia. Mohammad repackaged the pagan worship associated with the Ka’aba in Mecca into a monotheistic form.

72 Virgins



Sensual Paradise

In Islam, the concept of 72 virgins (houri) refers to an aspect of Jannah (Paradise). This concept is grounded in Qur'anic text which describe a sensual Paradise where believing men are rewarded by being wed to virgins with "full grown", "swelling" or "pears-shaped" breasts.


Contemporary mainstream Islamic scholars, for example; Gibril Haddad, have commented on the erotic nature of the Qur'anic Paradise, by saying some men may need ghusl (ablution required after sexual discharge) just for hearing certain verses.

Orthodox Muslim theologians such as al-Ghazali (died 1111 CE) and al-Ash'ari (died 935 CE) have all discussed the sensual pleasures found in Paradise. It is quoted by Ibn Kathir, in his Qur'anic Commentary, the Tafsir ibn Kathir, and they are graphically described by Qur'anic commentator and polymath, al-Suyuti (died 1505), who, echoing a hasan hadith from Ibn Majah, wrote that the perpetual virgins will all "have appetizing vaginas", and that the "penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal".

The sensual pleasures between believers and houri in Paradise are also confirmed by the two Sahih collections of hadith, namely Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, where we read that they will be virgins who "will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions", and whose "sweat will smell like musk. They are so beautiful, pure and transparent that "the marrow of the bones of their legs will be seen through the bones and the flesh",and that "the believers will visit and enjoy them".


There are several descriptions related to houri that are found in various Islamic references. Some include:

Physical Attributes:

  • Wide and beautiful/lovely eyes
  • Like pearls
  • Hairless except the eye brows and the head

In addition to Quranic translations of 78:33 specifying the virgins will be voluptuous, Sahih International translates it as "full-breasted [companions] of equal age". Tafsir al-Jalalayn says "and buxom maidens (kawā‘ib is the plural of kā‘ib) of equal age (atrāb is the plural of tirb)". Several Islamic scholars explain that they will have "large, round breasts which are not inclined to hang".

  • Beautiful
  • White
  • 60 cubits [27.5 meters] tall
  • 7 cubits [3.2 meters] in width
  • Transparent to the marrow of their bones
  • Eternally young
  • Companions of equal age

Sexual Attributes:

  • Untouched / with hymen unbroken by sexual intercourse
  • Virgins
  • Voluptuous/full-breasted
  • With large, round breasts which are not inclined to hang
  • Appetizing vaginas

Personality Attributes:

  • Chaste
  • Restraining their glances
  • Modest gaze

Other Attributes:

  • Splendid
  • Pure
  • Non-menstruating / non-urinating/ non-defecating and childfree
  • Sweat that smells like musk

Gaza Jihadis Launch Twitter Fundraising Drives To Arm And Supply Their Men

The following report is a complimentary offering from MEMRI's Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.


Salafi-jihadi groups in the Gaza Strip have recently launched Twitter fundraising campaigns to finance their activities, with the stated goal of purchasing weapons and ammunition, paying jihad fighters' salaries, financing military activity, and otherwise aiding in waging the war against Israel. The campaigns remind supporters that the "money jihad" is religiously important and propagate the idea that while it is not equal to active participation in jihad, assisting the jihad via financial contributions is still a religious obligation. Gaza jihadi groups are also using Twitter to provide information for contacting the campaigns and for donating via other services such as Skype, Whatsapp, Gmail, and the Telegram messenger app. The campaigns have been endorsed by online jihadi activists.

The following are two major Twitter fundraising campaigns for Gaza Salafi-jihadis:

The Nafir Al-Aqsa Campaign

The Nafir Al-Aqsa ("Mobilizing For Al-Aqsa") campaign was launched on Twitter (@nafeeraq) on November 1, 2014. Those behind the campaign do not identify themselves with any group, but the endorsements received clearly show that they are associated with pro-Islamic State (ISIS) elements in Gaza. The campaign's Twitter account promotes its Skype and Gmail addresses, and encourages supporters to contact it through the Telegram messenger app, which encrypts messages. The phone number provided uses the 970 Palestinian Authority country code.

In a series of tweets, the campaign administrators explained the campaign's goals and why the campaign is necessary. A November 1, 2014 tweet read: "The campaign aims to equip the Jerusalem [area] mujahideen striving to raise the banner of monotheism, repel the Jews' aggression and liberate Al-Aqsa Mosque. Your brothers, the lions of monotheism [Salafi-jihadis] in Jerusalem [area] and Gaza, have suffered greatly due to the shortage of funds which [in turn] led to shortages in military equipment and procurement, and as a result of which many operations were cancelled. In the recent war on Gaza, your brothers had difficulty providing money for meals before and after the [day's] Ramadan fast, let alone for [purchasing] military equipment and ammunition. Sadly, most of the Sunni-provided support goes to the nationalist groups, while your brothers sometime cannot [even] afford to bury their martyrs."

In a November 3, 2014 communiqué announcing the launch of the Nafir Al-Aqsa campaign, the campaigners quoted at length Koranic verses and hadith sayings stressing the religious importance of donating money for jihad. They wrote: "For that reason, every Muslim should support Allah's religion without delay and protect the mujahideen's back with his soul, his money and with any means at his disposal. If, my Muslim brother, you are incapable of being a mujahid in Jerusalem [area], the site where Allah's Prophet ascended [to heaven], the Muslims' first direction of prayer, then know that you have brothers in Palestine who have made a pact with Allah to march on the path of jihad until they attain Allah's promise to the righteous who wage jihad on his behalf. Don't be stingy with your money and be among the first to do good."

Nafir Al-Aqsa campaign poster: "The cost of equipping a mujahid –$2500"

With regard to the campaign's actual goals, they wrote: "Your brothers, the mujahideen, launched the Nafir Al-Aqsa campaign to equip the mujahideen in Jerusalem [area], as this blessed campaign aims to prepare jihad operations and martyrdom-seeking operations that will target the Jews and repel their aggression from the people of Islam, striving to apply Allah's law and liberate Al-Aqsa mosque from the filth of the offending Jews, to make Allah's word reign supreme, and that of the unbelievers the lowest. Your brothers are announcing the start of the campaign's first stage, which seeks to equip 50 mujahideen at a cost of $2500  per mujahid."

Once the first stage is complete, the Twitter account says, the second stage will be announced. A monthly report with details and photos about the achievements and the purchases made possible by the donations that month is also promised.

Nafir Al-Aqsa has been endorsed by from multiple Twitter accounts associated with the Islamic State (ISIS). For example, on November 3, 2014, the Al-Nusra Al-Maqdisiyya account (@Bakoon7), operated by pro-ISIS activists in the Gaza Strip, urged Salafi-jihadis to donate to it and support it: "Notice: the Nafir Al-Aqsa campaign is a decent campaign supervised by a group of trustworthy men. Its goal is to equip the mujahideen in Palestinian for jihad on Allah's behalf."

The Madad Gaza Twitter Campaign

In mid-October 2014, the jihadi faction called Al-Ansar Salah Al-Din Brigades – Liwa' Al-Tawhid Battalions, operating in the Gaza strip within the Popular Resistance Committees, launched a fundraising drive to purchase weapons, equipment and supplies for its fighters. The Twitter account of the campaign, the Aid Campaign for the Gaza Mujahideen (@madd_gaza), asks Muslims to aid their brother mujahideen who are fighting in the Gaza Strip on their behalf.

The front page of the Twitter account begins as follows: "The account of the [fundraising] campaign belongs to your brothers in the Al-Ansar Salah Al-Din Brigades – Liwa' Al-Tawhid Battalions…. Contact via the Skype account madd-gaza and via Whatsapp at telephone number 00972598606027."

In a series of tweets, the account manager emphasized that contributions were important and constituted a religious obligation. On October 25, 2014, he wrote: "O money owner, the money is Allah's money and you hold it only in deposit. Don't forget that your brother mujahideen have a right to this money." Another Tweet on the same date read: "With the money that you contribute, we supply the mujahid with equipment and arms, with it we buy clothing, supplies and ammunition. This money is of manifold benefit. So hurry my brother and help your brothers." An October 25, 2014 tweet included a price list for various weapons, ammunition, and supplies, to show what can be bought with the donations: "Kalashnikov [assault rifle] – $1900, four hand grenades – $14, four empty ammunition clips – $14, 120 bullets for a Kalashnikov – $2.5 we need [equipment) for 100 fighters".

In Open Letter To Muslim World, French Muslim Philosopher Says Islam Has Given Birth To Monsters, Needs Reform

In an essay published October 3, 2014 in the French newspaper Marianne, Abdennour Bidar, philosopher and author of Self Islam, a personal history of Islam (Seuil2006); Islam without submission: a Muslim existentialism (Albin Michel, 2008), and History of humanism in the West (Armand Colin, 2014), wrote that believing Muslims cannot avoid a discussion of the causes of jihadi excesses by merely denouncing terrorist barbarism. He says that in the face of the dogmas and political manipulation to which it is being subjected, the Muslim world must be self-critical, and must act to reform itself. The following is his essay:

Abdennour Bidar (image: aujourdhui.ma)

"I See That You Are Losing Yourself, Losing Your Time And Your Honor, In Your Refusal To Recognize That This Monster [ISIS] Is Born Of You"

"Dear Muslim world: I am one of your estranged sons, who views you from without and from afar – from France, where so many of your children live today. I look at you with the harsh eyes of a philosopher, nourished from infancy on tasawwuf (Sufism) and Western thought. I look at you therefore, from my position of barzakh, from an isthmus between the two seas of the East and the West.

"And what do I see? What do I see better than others, no doubt precisely because I see you from afar, from a distance? I see you in a state of misery and suffering that saddens me infinitely, but that makes my philosopher's judgment even harsher. Because I see you in the process of birthing a monster that presumes to call itself the Islamic State, and which some prefer to call by a demon's name – Da'esh. But worst of all is that I see that you are losing yourself, losing your time and your honor, in your refusal to recognize that this monster is born of you, of your irresoluteness, of your contradictions, of your being torn between past and present, of your perpetual inability to find your place in human civilization.

"What, indeed, do you say when faced with this monster? You shout, 'That's not me!' 'That's not Islam!' You reject [the possibility] that this monster's crimes are committed in your name (#NotInMyName). You rebel against the monster's usurpation of your identity, and of course you are right to do so. It is essential that you proclaim to the world, loud and clear, that Islam condemns barbarity. But this is absolutely not enough! For you are taking refuge in your self-defense reflex, without realizing it, and, above all, without taking responsibility to self-criticize. You become indignant and are satisfied with that – but you are missing an historical opportunity to question yourself. Instead of taking responsibility for yourself, you accuse others: 'You Westerners, and all you enemies of Islam – stop associating us with this monster! Terrorism is not Islam! The true Islam, the good Islam doesn't mean war, it means peace!'"

"The Root Of This Evil That Today Steals Your Face Is Within Yourself; The Monster Emerged From Your Own Belly"

"Oh my dear Muslim world, I hear the cry of rebellion rising in you, and I understand it. Yes, you are right: Like every one of the great sacred inspirations in the world, Islam has, throughout its history, created beauty, justice, meaning, and good, and it has [been a source of] powerful enlightenment for humans who are on the path through the mystery of existence...Here in the West, I fight, in all my books, so that this wisdom of Islam and of all religions is not forgotten or despised. But because of my distance [from the Muslim world], I can see that which you cannot... And this inspires me to ask: Why has this monster stolen your face? Why has this despicable monster chosen your face and not another? The truth is that behind this monster hides a huge problem, one you do not seem ready to confront. Yet in the end you will have to find the courage [to do so].

"The problem is that of the root of the evil. Where do the crimes of this so-called 'Islamic State' come from? I'll tell you, my friend. And it will not make you happy, but it is my duty as a philosopher. The root of this evil that today steals your face is within yourself; the monster emerged from your own belly. And other monsters, some even worse, will emerge, as long as you refuse to acknowledge your sickness and to finally tackle the root of this evil!

"Even Western intellectuals have difficulty seeing this. For the most part they have so forgotten the power of religion – for good and for evil, over life and over death – that they tell me, 'No, the problem of the Muslim world is not Islam, not the religion, but politics, history, economics, etc.' They completely forget that religion may be the core of the reactor of a human civilization, and that tomorrow the future of humanity will depend not only on a resolution to the financial crisis, but also, and much more essentially, on a resolution to the unprecedented spiritual crisis that is affecting all of mankind." 

"I See In You, Oh Muslim World, Great Forces Ready To Rise Up And Contribute To This Global Effort To Find A Spiritual Life For The 21st Century"

"Will we be able to all come together, across the world, to face this fundamental challenge? The spiritual nature of man abhors a vacuum, and if finds nothing new with which to fill it, it will tomorrow fill it with religions that are less and less adapted to the present – and which, like Islam today, will [also]begin producing monsters.

"I see in you, oh Muslim world, great forces ready to rise up and contribute to this global effort to find a spiritual life for the 21st century. Despite the severity of your sickness, you have in you a great multitude of men and women willing to reform Islam, to reinvent its genius beyond its historical forms, and to be part of the total renewal of the relationship that mankind once had with its gods. It is to all these, both Muslims and non-Muslims, who dream together of a spiritual revolution that I have addressed my books– to whom I offer, with my philosopher's words, confidence in that which their hope glimpses."

Interviewer: "How do you explain the spread of atheism in our society? Has it become a widespread phenomenon?"


Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa: "Yes, it has. There are two reasons for this atheism. One reason is the hijacking of religious discourse by the extremists and terrorists. Some people have their own opinion about our religion. The other reason is the colonialist Zionist force, which sponsors and supports atheists and atheism, and finances homosexuals and homosexuality, in order to fragment this society."

Tamer Amin: "We are all sinners. We all make mistakes and commit sins. However, the best among sinners are those who repent, and ultimately, we will all face our Lord. The issue is not whether I make a mistake. The catastrophe is when someone boasts in public about his mistakes, his depravity, his obscenity, or the sin that he commits. This is what I am concerned about."

Syrian Child Preacher: 'Obama, May Allah Curse You... We Will Trample On Your Head With Our Feet, You Infidel, You Tyrant'; We Will Conquer The Arabian Peninsula And Kill Its Leaders

This video, posted on the Internet on October 28, features a boy called Abu Ja'far ("The Father of Ja'far") and is titled "The Jihad." In the "street sermon," which attracted a small gathering of children and adults and was secured by an armed militant, the boy curses Obama, calls for jihad, and vows to conquer the Arabian Peninsula and kill its rulers. The original video was over 15 minutes long. Another address by Abu Ja'far, also posted on the Internet, was titled "Modesty."

According to the Facebook page of the Center for Preachers of Jihad, which posted the addresses, they were delivered in Sarmada, near Idlib. The Center for Preachers of Jihad was founded by Saudi preacher Abdallah Al-Muhaisini, one of the veteran foreign fighters in Syria, who announced in September that he was opening a military training camp for boys aged 14 and over.

Senior Saudi Salafi Cleric: 'ISIS Is A True Product Of Salafism'

The following report is a complimentary offering from the Counter-Radicalization Initiative of MEMRI's Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.


"ISIS is a true product of Salafism, and we must deal with it with full transparency." This statement was made not by liberal Muslim elements, who regularly criticize Salafism, but by Sheikh 'Aadel Al-Kalbani, former imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and a Salafi himself, hence its importance. Al-Kalbani is not the first Salafi to come out against ISIS other Saudis have condemned the organization's conduct and operations but Al-Kalbani has gone farther in his criticism: he has come out against the principles of the Salafi perception from which ISIS and its ilk draw, and has called for a rationalistic approach to Islam's distant past and what it means for Islam today instead of a blind reenactment of it.

In two articles in the Saudi government daily Al-Riyadh, Al-Kalbani criticized elements in the Salafi stream for appropriating the truth and Islam and for permitting the killing of their opponents, and likewise criticized clerics and society that dared not come out against them. He stated that the call to blindly reenact the path of the Prophet Muhammad and of the forefathers of Islam stems from a faulty grasp of the essence of this path, and that Muhammad himself had rejected blind adoption of the perceptions of the past and blind following of the path of his predecessors, choosing instead a rationalistic approach appropriate for a changing reality. Al-Kalbani stated that clerics must take their heads out of the sand and move with the spirit of the times instead of rejecting and condemning any new idea.

This is not the first time that Al-Kalbani has challenged the mainstream Saudi clerics. He has harshly attacked suicide bombings,[1] published a fatwa permitting poetry,[2] and called for allowing women to drive cars.[3]

The following are translated excerpts from his two recent articles in Al-Riyadh

Sheikh 'Aadel Al-Kalbani (source: Assabile.com)

"ISIS Is A True Product Of Salafism And We Must Deal With It With Full Transparency"

On August 15, 2014, Sheikh Al-Kalbani tweeted (@abuabdelelah): "ISIS is a true product of Salafism and we must deal with it with full transparency."  


This statement sparked reactions across the social networks, and 10 days later, on August 24, Al-Kalbani wrote in an Al-Riyadh article titled "Is Terrorism A Salafi Product?": "Every time we see the fitna network sweeping up young people from among our sons... [and pitching them into] to a very deep abyss from which they will emerge only by means of idioms that drip blood, our conscience torments us and we wonder: From whence has this come upon us? How have they fallen into this?  As if we could not do a thing before then.

"But the opposite is true: The main reason for their deviation is our neglect and by 'our' neglect I mean the [neglect of the] generation of the parents, and of the honorable members of society among the clerics, teachers, preachers, jurisprudents, and sociologists who are linked directly to that society. The words, the books, the sermons, the dramas, and all the artistic creativity and the essential link [to the audience] that these people present in all the media, whether print, radio, or television, [allow them] to monitor the ideas of the young people and to participate in balancing them. I exclude [of course] that tiniest of minorities whose throat is parched from warning about the extremism of the Salafis. 

"Yes, this is the plant that has sprouted in the garbage dump of those who excessively pass judgment on others and pretend to represent Salafism. How gravely they have accused others of apostasy, of deviating from the right path, of heresy, and of licentiousness as if the arena lies open before them and there is nobody to condemn them and no judge to punish them. Furthermore, they are received with feigned respect and admiration, and opportunities have been opened to them to plant in the minds of our young people that this one has gone astray and that one is an infidel and the other one is lax in religion. Even the greatest of clerics, past and present, are not spared their arrows. They spread the principles of Islam in a twisted manner that makes them incomprehensible or distorted, and preserve things that negate Islam. They measure the judge, the educated, and the student, and even the simple folk by what they [i.e. these extremists] have learned by heart [but] do not understand, and think that they are entitled to rule that the above mentioned are apostates and to call down upon them the punishments of Allah that are no longer implemented and [by so doing, they think that they will] restore the glory and splendor of monotheism.

"This group thinks that no one but itself and its supporters are the source of good and the defenders of monotheism because [its members] imbibed with their mothers' milk [the view] that all Muslims worldwide do not understand [monotheism] and that they are not worshipping only Allah but are polytheists who worship graves... and that there are no just clerics besides their own clerics and their disciples. [They think that] only a cleric whom they love, whom they heed and obey, and on whose say they reject or validate [others] only he holds the truth and acts in accordance with the ways of [Islam's] just forefathers... They spread out and multiply, and publicly call for following in the footsteps of some sheikh and for accepting his words in full. They have begun to classify people, preachers, and clerics [for example,] this sheikh shouldn't be listened to because he is more loathsome than the Jews and the Christians, and that fatwa deviates [from the right path], so it is forbidden to pray behind anyone who adopts it, or to sit with him, eat with him or respect him. They have begun... to separate the young people from the clerics who understand the result of [this activity by them] and what difficulties they are going to cause the nation. 

"Actually, there is no connection between the path of these extremists and the [true] path of the Salafis which is tolerance, compassion, and gentleness, and in which there is no place for extremism and [religious] fanaticism. [Salafism] is a path that spreads love, brotherhood, and acceptance of the other among Muslims and coexistence with non-Muslims. But the thing is to understand it and to implement it and not [just to] pretend [to do so] in a way that is compatible with the deep roots of the past and with the demands of the present. 

"[However,] what is needed is a perception for reforming ideas, not admonitions, reproof, reactions and word-sparing that deal with the symptom and ignore the disease! There is still enough time to rehabilitate [these ideas], ideologically and practically, and to prevent society from splitting into sects and groups that throng after dignitaries who are enveloped in an aura of immunity [to sin and error] and sanctity, with each group thinking that it has the right to guide the nation and recruit its young people. 

"A plant is always like its roots. If we want a good, fruitful plant, it is incumbent upon everyone to care for its roots, its water sources, the spread of its branches, and the fertility of the earth [from which it grows], and to protect it from ideas and viruses that turn its fruit and seeds to poison from which the generations sip and on which the young people grow up; from [these seeds] sprouts a plant that has in it no place for compassion and to whom love and friendship are totally alien."

"We Remain Trapped In The Dungeons Of The Very Distant Past"; We Should "Rely On The Past As A Foundation" For Building The Present And Future, Not Destroying Them

On August 31, 2014, Al-Kalbani published another article, "The Chains of the Past," in which he criticized the Salafism that advocates uncritical reliance on Islam's past, and called for a rationalistic critical approach. He wrote: "We never stop elevating the past at any cost, so much so that it has taken over our lives and thwarted our management of our present, and I do not know what it will do to our future. We claim that the past is the perception, the deeds, and the outlook of the forefathers [of Islam], to the point where if a catastrophe happens to one of us, he hastens to seek a solution for his catastrophe in a book written hundreds of years ago! And then we shout loudly, 'Islam is compatible with every time and every place[!]'

"What is very strange is that we remain trapped in the dungeons of the very distant past, chewing over the words of Malik [bin Anas[4]], may the peace of Allah be upon him, 'The last of this ummah will not be successful unless they follow the same [pattern] that was successful in the hands of its first ones,' and think that what it means is that we must remain in the first century of the era of the mission [of the Prophet Muhammad], in the same style of life, and in the same patterns and knowledge that he had.

"From these words [of Malik bin Anas] I do not understand that our past [must] control our present and constrain our future; rather, I understand that [the past] is what caused the Prophet's honorable Companions to change their perception, and brought about their wonderful transition from the caves of darkness and straying into the light of truth... What improved the situation of the first generation [of Islam] was not preserving the heritage of the forefathers and the ideas of the previous generations, but the complete opposite. The first generation [of Islam] abandoned the [pattern] of blind imitation, and with the descent [of Koran 96:1] 'Recite in the name of your Lord,' the use of the mind began, after it was neglected for many centuries; the wagon of change began to move and to shift the bitter reality full of oppression, backwardness, and idolatry with lofty and clear rational truths. They [the members of the first generation] opened their eyes to what had [always] been in front of them, but which the fog of imitating what their forefathers did had prevented them from seeing... until the honored Koran arrived and removed this fog and enabled them to see what they had been blind to, and to distinguish what they had not noticed [before].

"In the same spirit, I want the past to free us from the yoke of the backwards present not drag us towards it. I want our past to make us see reality as it is, and for us to rely on it in the areas of development and culture, and for us to emerge from it with momentum towards the horizons of the future and with an enlightened perception. This [should be done] under the direction of the two revelations [the Koran and the Sunna] and not by means of the opinions of people who have invested most of their efforts in studying that era [of early Islam].

"We should rely on the past as a foundation from which we head out to the future and to the building of the present; this is better than turning the past into [something] that binds our hands and arouses among us rivalry, conflict, and opinions for which we fight and as a result of which we weaken and splinter. Had we done this [from the outset], we would be sitting on the throne of the pinnacle of culture.

"We must acknowledge that our past contains things that are not compatible with our present. The religious collapse of the West happened only after it became fully aware of the depth of the yawning chasm between the scientific knowledge that serves the culture that the human mind has attained and the religious beliefs and laws set out by the church, which included beliefs that had been distorted or misunderstood, or were not appropriate for every time.

"From among those who call for absolute adherence to the past there has emerged a young generation that  defends and fights for opinions and ways that are devoid of the [the correct] Islamic concepts and religious views that can guide the ummah in the right direction. This gang, that has granted itself the right to banish minds, has not grasped the situation of the ummah, and has not managed to adapt to [today's reality]; therefore its path is to subdue the other or to accuse him of apostasy and of deviating from the right path. [These people] can be found in all walks of life, preventing men of insight from advancing and catching up to the present, and anyone who criticizes them and points out their mistakes is accused of being Khawarij[5] an accusation tailored for such [critics]. Anyone who talks about women's rights is deviating from the right path and is loathsome and is lax in religion. Anyone who expresses a wise opinion that has been covered up and ignored because it contradicts their Salafism, is going against the vast majority of the people... and so on...

"What is strange is that these radical extremists who accuse their opponents of heresy and of apostasy acknowledge neither the stagnation of their own perception and ideas nor the worthlessness of their religious law, and thus do not recognize that they have left seeds that are today inflicting suffering and torment on the ummah."

Jordanian King 'Abdallah II: It Is Our Religious And Humanitarian Duty To Confront The Extremist Organizations That Instigate Sectarian Wars And Distort The Image Of Islam

In a November 2, 2014 speech marking the opening of the new session of parliament, King 'Abdallah II addressed domestic matters, including political reforms and economic projects, and also touched on international and regional affairs. Speaking of "a number of takfiri organizations" that are threatening the region, he said that they are the enemies of Islam and the Muslims, and the war against them "is our war, because we are targeted, and we must defend ourselves, Islam, and the values of tolerance and moderation by fighting extremism and terrorists."

Mentioning the situation in Jerusalem, he said that Jordan would continue to confront "Israel’s unilateral policies and measures in Jerusalem" by all available means and to protect the holy sites, both Muslim and Christian. He also underlined Jordan's commitment to rebuilding Gaza "following the vile Israeli aggression," and called to renew the final status negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, leading to a permanent peace on the basis of a two-state solution lest the absence of a just solution feed extremism and terrorism.

Addressing the Syria crisis, he reiterated that "the only solution is a comprehensive political one," adding that the absence of such a solution will intensify sectarian strife across the region.

Finally, he saluted the Jordanian army, stressing its "commitment to defend the causes of the Arab nation, its soil and security against all threats," because "Jordan’s security is part and parcel of the security of brotherly Arab countries."

The following are excerpts from an English translation of the speech published in The Jordan Times:[1]

"Jordan Will Continue To Confront, Through All Available Means, Israel’s Unilateral Policies And Measures In Jerusalem"

"Despite all challenges, Jordan did not and will not allow difficulties and regional turmoil to be an excuse to hesitate in moving forward with comprehensive reforms. For we have never regarded reform as a reaction to difficult circumstances. For Jordan, reform is a homegrown national aspiration, which consolidates national unity, pluralism, moderation, widens participation, deepens democracy and enroots our parliamentary government system...

"Jordan has always shouldered its moral and humanitarian responsibilities on matters that threaten regional and international security. Jordan will continue to deploy its international status and membership in the UN Security Council in the service of the causes of our Arab and Muslim nation...

"The Palestinian cause remains our principal cause and is a higher national interest. Jerusalem, whose soil is watered by the blood and sacrifices of our martyrs, is a responsibility that lies in the depth of our conscience. Jordan will continue to confront, through all available means, Israel’s unilateral policies and measures in Jerusalem and preserve its Muslim and Christian holy sites, until peace is restored to the land of peace.

"We will continue to mobilize international support to rebuild Gaza, following the vile Israeli aggression, which killed thousands of our Palestinian brethren and destroyed their livelihoods.

"In order for such an aggression not to repeat itself again, final status negotiations must be resumed, leading to a permanent peace on the basis of a two-state solution according to international terms of reference and the Arab Peace Initiative, allowing Palestinians to establish their independent state on their national soil with East Jerusalem as its capital.

"As for the Syrian crisis, we reiterate that the only solution is a comprehensive political one, realized through the participation of all components of the Syrian people, assuring the country’s unity and stability. The absence of such a solution will intensify sectarian strife on the regional level. Similarly, the absence of a just and permanent solution for the Palestinian cause will feed extremism and terrorism.

"Jordan has fulfilled its pan-Arab and humanitarian responsibilities towards our Syrian refugee brethren. Although we truly appreciate all the support received from our brothers and friends, the amount of international support does not rise to the level of the crisis and the implications of hosting Syrian refugees. The international community must shoulder its responsibilities in providing assistance to refugees, Jordan and local host communities..."

The Takfiri Organizations In The Region Are Murdering Muslims And Innocents In The Name Of Islam; Islam Has Nothing To Do With Them

"Our region is suffering from a number of organizations that embrace an extremist takfiri ideology, and are murdering Muslims as well as innocent women and children in the name of Islam, but Islam has nothing to do with this. Islam is a faith of peace, tolerance, moderation, acceptance of the other and respect for the rights of all to live in peace and dignity, regardless of color, gender, religion or belief. These organizations are waging war against Islam and Muslims above all else.

"Our religious and humanitarian duty demands that we confront with strength and firmness all those who try to instigate sectarian wars or distort the image of Islam and Muslims. Accordingly, the war on these terrorist organizations and their radical ideology is our war because we are targeted and we must defend ourselves, Islam, and the values of tolerance and moderation by fighting extremism and terrorists. Everyone who supports this extremist takfiri ideology or tries to justify it is an enemy of Islam, the homeland and all noble human values. At the same time, the international community must confront extremism in other religions and sects..."

The Jordanian Army Is "Ready To Confront All Threats To Our National Security And The Security Of Our Neighboring Brothers, Because Arab Security Is Indivisible"

"The advanced level of liberties and progressive environment of political and social participation, which Jordan uniquely enjoys amidst a tumultuous region, is the result of security and stability gains, which our comrades in the armed forces and security agencies have made many sacrifices to preserve. We salute them with pride and appreciation. I tell you, brave soldiers, the motto that you wear on your uniforms, “The Arab Army”, is not just a slogan, nor did it come by coincidence. It is a testament of this army’s commitment to defend the causes of the Arab nation, its soil and security against all threats. Jordan’s security is part and parcel of the security of brotherly Arab countries. The Arab Army, and their comrades in security institutions, will remain — as always — ready to confront all threats to our national security and the security of our neighboring brothers because Arab security is indivisible...

"And Jordan will forever remain a model of coexistence, compassion and solidarity between all its citizens, Muslims and Christians, and a safe haven for brothers in need, advocating righteousness and never hesitating in fighting extremism, intolerance and terrorism resolutely."
