Winds of Martyrdom
“Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and programme, regardless of which Nation assumes the role of the standard bearer of Islam or the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic State.”–Sayeed Abdul A’la Maududi, Jihad in Islam p9
The YouTube video shows the wind of martyrdom and how the fever of the expectation of millions of Muslims are awaiting the rise of the 12th Imam. Their version of the a Islamic messiah the Mahdi. The Iran Iraq war was fought over whose version (Sunni or Shia) Mahdi will prevail. Today in Iraq much of the sect violence is over who this will be. It cannot be under estimated the belief that Muslims have in prophecy and what they see in the last days. It is a core belief in their five pillars of faith.
Winds of Martyrdom: Jihad
What drives a person to slam an aircraft, truck, bus or vest full of explosives to kill themselves and as many others as possible? Jihad or holy war is an Islamic demonic incentive plan that deceives the participant in killing themselves for as directed by what I call Koranic believers. They are simply going by the book that they follow from the father of lies. Allah is the moon god of ancient kabaa in Mecca. Allah was the chief god of the pagan idol worshipers during the days of the prophet Mohammed. They had roughly 360 idols or god of the day and Mohammed made Allah the chief or only god at an angels direction. See my comments on Quran verses that apply to a Christian perspective. I highlighted them in Red.

Bin Laden appears in new web video
Osama bin Laden, the fugitive al-Qaeda chief who has not been heard from for more than a year appeared in an undated videotape posted online today, in which he praises martyrdom. The happy (person) is the one chosen by Allah to be a martyr, bin Laden said in a short clip which was included in a videotape titled ‘Winds of Martyrdom’, and carried by the Washington-based SITE Intelligence Group. SITE said that the footage was old, but did not give an estimated date. The images showed showed the Western world’s most wanted man, wearing an Afghan-style hat, military fatigues and a greying beard, standing outdoors against a background of a hill and shrubs. Bin Laden was last heard of in an audiotape posted on the internet in July 2006, in which he accused Shia Muslims in Iraq of waging genocide against the minority Sunnis. He had also warned in an audio message posted a day earlier that jihad, or holy war, would go on in Iraq despite the killing of the then al-Qaeda frontman Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. “The last Prophet (of Islam, Mohammed)…wished to have died as a martyr, he said. The video message bore the symbol of the As-Sahab group, which usually produces audiovisual statements from al-Qaedas leadership. The videotape featured also messages from other al-Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan, as well as testimonies by purported suicide bombers ahead of launching attacks in the war-torn country.
Directive of warfare from Wikipedia
The directive of the Jihad given to Muslims in Qur’an is:
And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight against you and do not transgress bounds [in this fighting]. God does not love the transgressors. Kill them wherever you find them and drive them out [of the place] from which they drove you out and [remember] persecution is worse than carnage. But do not initiate war with them near the Holy Kabah unless they attack you there. But if they attack you, put them to the sword [without any hesitation]. Thus shall such disbelievers be rewarded. However, if they desist [from this disbelief], Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Keep fighting against them, until persecution does not remain and Allah’s religion reigns supreme. But if they mend their ways, then [you should know that] an offensive is only allowed against the evil-doers. A sacred month for a sacred month; [similarly] other sacred things too are subject to retaliation. So if any one transgresses against you, you should also pay back in equal coins. Have fear of Allah and [keep in mind that] Allah is with those who remain within the bounds [stipulated by religion].
Muster against them all the men and cavalry at your disposal so that you can strike terror into the enemies of Allah and of the believers and others beside them who may be unknown to you, though Allah knows them. And remember whatever you spend for the cause of Allah shall be repaid to you. You shall not be wronged.
Not equal are those of the believers who sit [at home] without any [genuine] excuse and those who strive hard and fight in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has given preference by a degree to those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit [at home]. [In reality], for each, Allah has made a good promise and [in reality] Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight above those who sit [at home] by a huge reward. Degrees of [higher] grades from Him and forgiveness and mercy. And Allah is Ever Forgiving, Most Merciful.
O you who believe! when you meet those who disbelieve marching for war, then turn not your backs to them. And whoever shall turn his back to them on that day– unless he turn aside for the sake of fighting or withdraws to a company– then he, indeed, becomes deserving of Allah’s wrath, and his abode is hell; and an evil destination shall it be.
This verse is why the threat will not go away. Those who believe the Koran have excellent rewards for those who fight for Allah and has the ultimate man religion of virgins to gratify all their lust of the flesh. Sex, food and their family. Martyrs of Islam are venerated and even traded like baseball cards with stats for how many killed. Killing Jews is like home runs and civilians RBI’s etc…Muslim mothers dress their children in little suicide vests like our mothers dressed us in baseball or football uniforms see photo. Nuts!
Consider not those who are killed in the way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive with their Lord, and they will be provided for. They rejoice in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty and rejoice for the sake of those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind [not yet martyred] that on them too no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve. They rejoice in a grace and a bounty from Allah, and that Allah will not waste the reward of the believers.
And what has come over you that you fight not in the cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors, and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help. [You should know that] those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Satan. So fight you against the friends of Satan. Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Satan.
This verse below maybe the heartbeat of the false peace plan that the Antichrist may make with Israel. You should know the doctrine of Dhimmi. It teaches that Islam is to put the infidels under submission until they are subdued. I can think of no better image of this than the photo of Pope Johh Paul II kissing the book of the Koran. The Pope subdued or whoring.here:
Fight those who believe not in Allah or the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission and are subdued.
President Bush with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. The Golden rule you know Dhimmi is the humiliation of submission. Recall that Islam means submission. Once and enemy is put under submission whether nation or religion they are put under a tax called Jizyah…But our studies indicate that will end with the 12th Imam Al Mahdi. They will be forced by him to convert with Isa (Islams Jesus) to Islam or die. And guess how that is done for those who won’t convert. Beheading is the popular 7th century method of dealing with the unbelieving infidels. For those who have a solid bible understanding of the book of Revelation this sounds allot like the beast and the false prophet. See our articles on The Mahdi and Isa.
And if two parties or groups among the believers start fighting, then make peace between them both. But if one of them outrages against the other, then fight you against the one which outrages till it complies with the command of Allah. Then if it complies, make reconciliation between them justly, and be equitable. Verily! Allah loves those who are the equitable. The believers are brothers to one another. So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah that you may receive mercy. Qur’an, 49:9-10 While the exact nature of the original idea of 70 or 72 virgins for the martyr maybe in question among Muslim scholars. It can’t be denied that it is being exploited as the most ingenious mind job of lust employed by the master of fleshly lies, Satan. Also taught is that they (Muslims) may have family members they are worried wont go to paradise. They are taught that the martyr will not only gain entrance but their whole family. Talk about an incentive plan!
From: Saturday January 12, 2002 excerpts from, http://www.guardian.co.uk/religion/Story/0,2763,631357,00.html
Since September 11, news stories have repeated the story of suicide bombers and their heavenly rewards, and equally Muslim scholars and Western apologists of Islam have repeated that suicide is forbidden in Islam. Suicide (qatlu nafsi-hi) is not referred to in the Koran but is indeed forbidden in the Traditions (Hadith in Arabic), which are the collected sayings and doings attributed to the Prophet and traced back to him through a series of putatively trustworthy witnesses. They include what was done in his presence that he did not forbid, and even the authoritative sayings and doings of his companions.
But the Hamas spokesman correctly uses the word martyr (shahid) and not suicide bomber, since those who blow themselves up almost daily in Israel and those who died on September 11 were dying in the noblest of all causes, Jihad, which is an incumbent religious duty, established in the Koran and in the Traditions as a divine institution, and enjoined for the purpose of advancing Islam. While suicide is forbidden, martyrdom is everywhere praised, welcomed, and urged: “By the Being in Whose Hand is my life, I love that I should be killed in the way of Allah; then I should be brought back to life and be killed again in His way…”; “The Prophet said, ‘Nobody who enters Paradise will ever like to return to this world even if he were offered everything, except the martyr who will desire to return to this world and be killed 10 times for the sake of the great honour that has been bestowed upon him’.” [Sahih Muslim, chapters 781, 782, The Merit of Jihad and the Merit of Martyrdom.]
What of the rewards in paradise? The Islamic paradise is described in great sensual detail in the Koran and the Traditions; for instance, Koran sura 56 verses 12 -40 ; sura 55 verses 54-56 ; sura 76 verses 12-22. I shall quote the celebrated Penguin translation by NJ Dawood of sura 56 verses 12- 39:
“They shall recline on jewelled couches face to face, and there shall wait on them immortal youths with bowls and ewers and a cup of purest wine (that will neither pain their heads nor take away their reason); with fruits of their own choice and flesh of fowls that they relish. And theirs shall be the dark-eyed houris, chaste as hidden pearls: a guerdon for their deeds… We created the houris and made them virgins, loving companions for those on the right hand…”
One should note that most translations, even those by Muslims themselves such as A Yusuf Ali, and the British Muslim Marmaduke Pickthall, translate the Arabic (plural) word Abkarun as virgins, as do well-known lexicons such the one by John Penrice. I emphasise this fact since many pudic and embarrassed Muslims claim there has been a mistranslation, that “virgins” should be replaced by “angels”. In sura 55 verses 72-74, Dawood translates the Arabic word ” hur ” as “virgins”, and the context makes clear that virgin is the appropriate translation: “Dark-eyed virgins sheltered in their tents (which of your Lord’s blessings would you deny?) whom neither man nor jinnee will have touched before.” The word hur occurs four times in the Koran and is usually translated as a “maiden with dark eyes”.
