Pro-Islamism

Hani al-Sibai, July 10, 2007

“The Islamists are always the ones who help people and save them from their plight. They are active and that is why they are envied by these microbes, which have spread their ideology throughout our countries. These Islamists, even in Jordan. Take any place in the world, and you will see that the Islamists are the masters of the world. There are no real men except for the people of Islam.”“Egyptian Liberal Sayid Al-Qimni and London Islamist Hani Al-Sibai Debate Secularism and Fundamentalism in the Arab World,” Middle East Media Research Institute, July 10, 2007, http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1513.htm.

Maulanda Fazlullah, April 21, 2007

In reference to interfaith dialogue: “…We can sit together, argue but supremacy will be that of Islam because after the advent of Islam their religions are no more valid.”Khurshid Khan, “Exclusive: An interview with Maulana Fazalullah,” Valleyswat.net, April 21, 2007, http://www.valleyswat.net/articles/fazalullah_interview.html.

Maulanda Fazlullah, April 21, 2007

“Shariah does not allow male and female working together. Women are meant to fulfil their responsibilities inside their houses. Only in case of dire need they can come out in a veil. It is obligatory for male to meet their needs. If he fails, he should set her free.”Khurshid Khan, “Exclusive: An interview with Maulana Fazalullah,” Valleyswat.net, April 21, 2007, http://www.valleyswat.net/articles/fazalullah_interview.html.

Ahmad Bahar, speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, April 20, 2007

“Be certain that America is on its way to utter destruction, America is wallowing [in blood] today in Iraq and Afghanistan, America is defeated and Israel is defeated, and was defeated in Lebanon and Palestine... Make us victorious over the community of infidels... Allah, take the Jews and their allies, Allah, take the Americans and their allies... Allah, annihilate them completely and do not leave anyone of them.”“Hamas in Their Own Words,” Anti-Defamation League, May 2, 2011, http://www.adl.org/anti-semitism/muslim-arab-world/c/hamas-in-their-own-words.html.

Yusef al-Sharafi, Hamas representative, April 12, 2007

“...the Jewish faith does not wish for peace nor stability, since it is a faith that is based on murder: 'I kill, therefore I am'... Israel is based only on blood and murder in order to exist, and it will disappear, with Allah's will, through blood and Shahids [martyrs].”“Hamas in Their Own Words,” Anti-Defamation League, May 2, 2011, http://www.adl.org/anti-semitism/muslim-arab-world/c/hamas-in-their-own-words.html.

Khadaffy Janjalani, January 22, 2007

When asked if ASG is a terrorist group:
“We are mujahideen, albeit a bit brutal since we won’t distinguish oppressive soldiers from its public of citizenry–they are generally our enemies. And we cannot soften up or become friends even with Arabs if they are in league with our enemies.”Octavio A. Dinampo, “Khadaffy Janjalani’s Last Interview” Philippine Daily Inquirer (Makati City), January 22, 2007, http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/inquirerheadlines/nation/view/20070122-44761/A_last_ext.

Letter from Houthi rebels, January 2007

“They [the Jews] have taken part in actions and movements that serve global Zionism first and foremost, and are working diligently at corrupting people and making them abandon their values, their moral and religious values, and spread all kinds of abominations throughout society... Our Islam religion compels us to fight the corrupt and denounce them.”Roee Nahmias, “Yemenite Jews under threat,” Ynetnews, January 22, 2007, http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3355506,00.html.

Ismail Haniyeh, then–Hamas-designated disputed prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, December 2006

“The arrogant of the world and the Zionists... want us to recognize the usurpation of the Palestinian lands and stop jihad and resistance and accept the agreements reached with the Zionist enemies in the past. I'm insisting from this podium that these issues won't materialize. We will never recognize the usurper Zionist government and will continue our jihad-like movement until the liberation of Jerusalem.”“Haniyeh Calls for Formation of Palestinian State on 1967 Lines,” Haaretz, December 19, 2006, http://www.haaretz.com/news/haniyeh-calls-for-formation-of-palestinian-state-on-1967-lines-1.207641.

Asim Qureshi, speaker at HT rally, August 19, 2006

“When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies. When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel, we know where the solution is and where the victory lies. We know that it is incumbent upon all of us, to support the jihad of our brothers and sisters in these countries when they are facing the oppression of the West. Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!”Jack Moore, “Jihadi John: UK Campaigner With Links to Emwazi Called for Jihad,” Newsweek, February 6, 2015, http://europe.newsweek.com/uk-campaigner-links-emwazi-called-jihad-309605.
