9/11 Victims Remembered
A TRIBUTE TO THE VICTIMS OF 9/11 AND OTHERS OF MILITANT JIHAD.
On this, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, in tribute to all men and women who, throughout history, have been victimized by Islamic militant jihad, I provide this article. I pray for the souls of the victims of fourteen centuries of Islamic jihad brutality. I grant recognition to the fact that the overwhelming majority of the victims of jihad have been innocent victims of brutal and dishonorable aggressions carried out by ruthless and hateful miscreants. I bear witness to the transgressions of jihadists as being ungodly and unholy. In finality, I condemn with every fiber of my being militant jihad, and express my undaunting resolve to embrace only that which is set firmly in righteousness, and never to embrace nor pay fiscal tribute to the type of wickedness that involves physical harm, such as the embodiment of jihadists.
To the real victims of 9/11 – the individuals and the family members of the individuals who died as the direct and indirect result of jihadi attacks – I pray that you may/have found peace for your soul, and a kindred spirit with God.
To all other victims of jihad, I pray the same. Including, but not limited to the following victims:
The Nakhla Raid was the first successful raid by Prophet Muhammad’s men, and a pinnacle moment in time when various precedents would lead to the atrocities committed by Muslims since. This traders caravan raid took place during a sacred month known as Rajab, a time when it was forbidden to engage in battles or attack caravans. The attack was also carried out as an ambush as the four Quraysh prepared food. Because of the fact that this holy month was observed, even by pagans, the caravan did not have armed escort as caravans would otherwise have. Of the four men attacked, one was killed, one escaped, and two were taken prisoner.
To absolve his men from wrong doing, P. Muhammad is recorded as saying, ‘Fighting therein is a great (transgression) but a greater (transgression) with Allâh is to prevent mankind from following the way of Allâh, to disbelieve in Him, to prevent access to Al-Masjid-Al-Harâm (at Makkah), and to drive out its inhabitants, and Al-Fitnah is worse than killing” (Koran 2:217). He would also claim that Allah told him in a vision that, “Persecution of Muslims is worse than killing of disbelievers.” During subsequent raids on caravans, prisoners were given the ultimatum to either convert or die.
And thus several ungodly precedents were set – stealth offensive attacks/jihad, permission to ignore any form of culturally accepted senses of honor and to attack for the benefit of Islam, permission to kill non-Muslims for the slightest of grievance, and the use of brutal force and threat of death to inflict forced conversion.
This raiding opened the way for the acquisition of power by the Prophet Mohammad and his companions and for their eventual domination of all Arabia; but the immediate step which secured the economic base and strengthened the prestige of the Moslems was their seizure of the property of the Jews of Yathreb, who were comprised of three different Jewish tribes. One tribe by one tribe, Prophet Mohammad found reason to either chase them away or commit mass brutal genocide as the tribesmen were murdered or forced to convert, and the tribeswomen were taken as sex slaves, leading to the Koranic verses regarding treatment of slaves and sex slaves. (Conversion through rape is practiced in parts of the Mideast yet today, another form of offensive jihad). Later jihadi excursions by Prophet Mohammad would lead to more visions by Allah, and the approval to attack pagans as well as Jews and Christians, allowing only those “people of the book” to live within Islamic conquered lands as long as they paid a special fees and lived under certain oppressive rules, a custom still in practice today.
Upon Prophet Mohammad’s death, the pendulum of jihad to conquer other lands was in full swing, and continues even as of today. Below are links to articles which comprise but a partial list of regions to be victimized by Islamic offensive jihad:

The Spanish Inquisition was actually a continuation of jihadi war brought to Spain by Islam, and a way to protect Christianity as a whole.
