Scorecard plus Slay, Fight...Limits?
So far, the score seems to be:
Religion of peace: 3
Religion of peices: 0
"Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah does not love transgressors" [Qur'an 2:190]
OK, I can see this. Fight those who attack you. That is very reasonable. The warning on going too far in a fight is also very reasonable.
"And slay them wherever you catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter;but do not fight them at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith." [Qur'an 2:191]
I guess slaughter is OK as long as you paint those whom you slaughter with the tag of "oppressors". I guess those 200 people in Madrid (whoops, sorry...) Andalucia were actively opressing al Qaida. They were not REALLY just going to work or thinking about how to feed their families, pay the bills or other personal matters. They were gathering to decide how to better oppress Muslims in Andalucia and supress their Faith. Now it makes sense...
"But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful." [Qur'an 2:192]
I guess the Spanish electorate has done its homework. but...
"And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, let there be no more hostility except to those who practice oppression" [Qur'an 2:193]
For the Spanish to be truly safe, they need to give back Andalucia and find peace in Islam.
What about New York? I am pretty sure that New York was never in Muslim hands... These guys must have really good intellegence to be able to track people that have oppressed them to the World Trade Center where they MUST have been meeting to discuss how the continue their oppression on 9/11...
The acts in NYC and Madrid were outside the "limits" of any measure.
