Flashback 2010: John Brennan Defends Jihad As “Legitimate Tenet Of Islam”

Zip @ Weasel’s Zippers:

And in less than one hour Obama will be appointing him to lead the CIA.

(Fox News) — The president’s top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a “legitimate tenet of Islam,” arguing that the term “jihadists” should not be used to describe America’s enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”

    1/8th of every mandatory charitable ”contribution,” from every one of those 1.5 billion Muslims MUST go to fund jihad.
    I don’t see how anyone could honestly say anything other than that “Jihad is a Legitimate Tenet of Islam.”

    Zakat should be paid at the rate of 2.5% on any wealth (cash, savings, investments, gold and silver, etc.) remaining after meeting the expenses for such necessities as food, clothing, housing, vehicles and craft machines, which has been held for over 13 months.

    The most authoritative source for such information is a book called “The Reliance of the Traveler, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.”
    http://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Traveller-Classic-Manual-Islamic/dp/0915957728
    That book has a whole section devoted to the rules of zakat, including “THE EIGHT CATEGORIES OF RECIPIENTS.” On page 272, section h8.17, one category is labeled:

    THOSE FIGHTING FOR ALLAH

    The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster
    (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration).
    They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses
    (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged).

    How many other organizations that have a policy that you will join them or they will kill you, and if you leave them, you will be killed, are not declared a terrorist organization?

    Even liberals who honestly believe in WE THE PEOPLE, should be questioning why obama wants all of his appointees to be from communist or Muslim backgrounds. The fire under your pan of water has been turned up a little bit more. Do you feel any heat yet?
