HEADLINE: Anyone Using The Phrase ‘Islam Is A Religion Of Peace’ Needs To Read This
~Mark Durie

Days after the ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in San Bernardino, President Obama’s address to the nation concerning the threat of ISIS missed the mark. In fact, President Obama seemed at times to be more concerned with Americans ostracizing Muslim communities through “suspicion and hate,” than he was with protecting innocent American civilians from murder in the name of radical Islam.

It is high time for western political leaders to stop responding to terrorism by naming Islam as ‘the religion of peace’. It is time to have a hard conversation about Islam.

The West is in the throes of acute cognitive dissonance over Islam, whose brands are at war with each other. On the one hand we are told that Islam is the Religion of Peace. On the other hand we are confronted with an unending sequence of acts of terror committed in the name of the faith.

There is a depressing connection between the two brands: the louder one brand becomes, the more the volume is turned up on the other.

The slogan ‘Religion of Peace’ has been steadily promoted by western leaders in response to terrorism: George Bush Jr and Jacques Chirac after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7, David Cameron after drummer Lee Riby was beheaded and after British tourists were slaughtered in Tunisia, and François Hollande after the Charlie Hebdo killings. After the beheading of 21 Copts on a Libyan beach Barak Obama called upon the world to “continue to lift up the voices of Muslim clerics and scholars who teach the true peaceful nature of Islam.”

One may well ask how ‘the religion of peace’ became a brand of Islam, for the phrase cannot be found in the Qur’an, nor in the teachings of Muhammad.

Islam was first called ‘the religion of peace’ as late as 1930, in the title of a book published in India by Ishtiaq Husain Qureshi. The phrase was slow to take off, but by the 1970s it was appearing more and more frequently in the writings of Muslims for western audiences.

What does “religion of peace” actually mean?

Words for ‘peace’ in European languages imply the absence of war, and freedom from disturbance. It is no coincidence that the German words Friede ‘peace’ and frei ‘free’ sound similar, because they come from the same root.

While there is a link in Arabic between salam, a word often translated ‘peace’, and Islam, the real connection is found in the idea of safety.

The word Islam is based upon a military metaphor. Derived from aslama ‘surrender’ its primary meaning is to make oneself safe (salama) through surrender. In its original meaning, a muslim was someone who surrendered in warfare.

Thus Islam did not stand for the absence of war, but for one of its intended outcomes: surrender leading to the ‘safety’ of captivity. It was Muhammad himself who said to his non-Muslim neighbors aslim taslam ‘surrender (i.e. convert to Islam) and you will be safe’.

The Religion of Peace slogan has not gone uncontested. It has been rejected by many, including Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Melanie Phillips writing for The Times, who called it ‘pure myth’.

Even among Muslims the phrase has not only been challenged by radical clerics such as Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, but also by mainstream Muslim leaders.

Sheikh Ramadan Al-Buti of Syria was one of the most widely respected traditionalist Sunni scholars before he was killed in 2013 by a suicide bomber. The year before he had been listed as number 27 in the ‘The Muslim 500’, an annual inventory of the most influential Muslims in the world. According to Al-Buti, the claim that Islam is a peaceful religion was a ‘falsehood’ imposed upon Muslims by westerners to render Islam weak. He argued in The Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography that when non-Muslims fear Islamic jihad, their initial inclination is to accuse the religion of being violent.

However they then change tack, and craftily feed to Muslims the idea that Islam is peaceful, in order to make it so. He laments the gullibility of ‘simple-minded Muslims’, who:
“… readily accept this ‘defense’ as valid and begin bringing forth one piece of evidence after another to demonstrate that Islam is, indeed, a peaceable, conciliatory religion which has no reason to interfere in others’ affairs. … The aim … is to erase the notion of jihad from the minds of all Muslims.”
There does seem to be something to Al-Buti’s theory, for it has invariably been after acts of violence done in the name of Islam that western leaders have seen fit to make theological pronouncements about Islam’s peacefulness. Who are they trying to convince?

In the long run this cannot be a fruitful strategy. It invites mockery, such as Palestinian cleric Abu Qatada’s riposte to George Bush’s declaration that ‘Islam is peace’. Abu Qatada asked: ‘Is he some kind of Islamic scholar?’

We do need to have a difficult conversation about Islam. This is only just beginning, and it will take a long time. The process will not be helped by the knee-jerk tendency of western leaders to pop up after every tragedy trying to have the last word on Islam. This strategy has failed, and it is time to go deeper.

This is so fucked up

Emwazi is said to be the executioner in a number of ISIS videos, according to the U.S. government. The legitimacy of the beheading productions are disputed by experts.

According to The Daily Mail, Emwazi claimed the “MI5 knew ‘everything about me; where I lived, what I did, and the people I hanged around with’ and claimed the organization attempted to ‘turn’ him to work for them.”

Emwazi claimed to have been harassed and intimidated by security services in 2009 when he flew to Tanzania with friends on a safari. He was arrested in Dar es Salaam and sent back to Britain. In a stop over in Amsterdam, however, an MI5 agent allegedly accused him of trying to reach Somalia to join the terrorist group Al Shabaab.

According to the Daily Mail, Emwazi filed a harassment claim with the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The following year, Emwazi was arrested when he returned to Britain from his native Kuwait. He was subsequently placed on a terror watch list.

Michael Adebolajo, one of the two killers of Fusilier (a British term for solider) Lee Rigby in London in 2013, also complained of harassment by the British secret service.

British Intelligence: Funding Terror Projects and Protecting Terror Suspects

British intelligence has played a key role in creating and fomenting terrorism.

As documented by Jean-Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquié, authors of The Forbidden Truth, in 1996 British intelligence paid al-Qaeda around $160,00 to fund an assassination plot against Libyan leader Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi. The British press was bannedfrom discussing the case.

A member of the group, Anas al-Liby, was givenpolitical asylum in Britain. He lived there until May 2000 despite being an important al-Qaeda figure who would later be implicated in the alleged al-Qaeda bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

In the late 1990s British intelligence recruited, groomed and protected a number of terrorist figures, including Abu Qatada. The radical imam told MI5 agents he exercised “powerful, spiritual influence over the Algerian community in London,” said he would look after the interests of the British state, and “would not bite the hand that fed him.”

Qatada would later figure as a key figure in terror. “The authorities said that a number of people arrested in connection with terrorism had described Abu Qatada’s influence. Richard Reid, the would-be mid-Atlantic shoe bomber, and Zacarias Moussaoui, both jailed for involvement in terrorism, are said to have sought religious advice from him. The cleric’s sermons were found in a flat in the German city of Hamburg used by some of those involved in 9/11,” the BBC reported.

A friend of Qatada’s, Bisher al-Rawi, would later become a key operative for British intelligence. He acted as a go-between for Qatada and MI5, The Independent reported in March, 2006.

Another important figure on the “Londonistan” scene was Abu Hamza al-Masri, the imam presiding over the infamous Finesbury Park mosque, described as “a first port of call, a meeting place and a haven for terror suspects arriving and operating in the UK,” including Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui. “Hamza, as the imam of the mosque and its central figure, wielded a powerful influence over those who passed through its doors,” The Independent reported.

Hamza began working for British intelligence and police in 1997. He informed on fellow Muslims and was granted favors by MI5, including the release of suspected terrorists. Hamza told his aides he was “beyond the reach of British law,” according to authorsSean O’Neill Daniel McGrory (The Suicide Factory). An admission “that Abu Hamza and his followers were using [Britain] to raise funds to finance terrorism overseas did not seem to cause a blip on the MI5 agent’s radar,” O’Neill and McGrory write.

In 1999 Hamza would be implicated in the kidnapping and murder of Western tourists in Yemen. He would tell police he was following the Koran and would be released. The police returned to Hamza audio tapes “packed with the usual messages of intolerance and hatred, and culminating in exhortations to kill the enemies of Islam.”

His Finsbury Park mosque sermons were attended by alleged 9/11 hijackers Mohammed Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer. Haroon Rashid Aswat, a top aide to Abu Hamza, would later be singled out as the mastermind of the London 7/7 bombings. Aswat is also suspected of working with British intelligence.

Another leading imam, Omar Bakri Mohammed, who collaborated with Osama bin Laden, also worked for British intelligence. “The British government knows who we are. MI5 has interrogated us many times. I think now we have something called public immunity,”Bakri admitted in 2001. Like many jihadists, the Syrian born imam was connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, a documented British (and later CIA) intelligence asset.

Abu Qatada demands to be relocated after a year in £400,000 home
Lawyers for the extremist cleric revealed he and his family, who live on state handouts, have asked to be relocated.
It is not known what reasons he has given but is likely to have demanded more space or complained about the constant media presence outside.
It can also be disclosed that his every movement will be watched from space as part of the massive surveillance operation that is costing the public £5 million a year.
The hate preacher has been fitted with a GPS satellite tag which means the police and security services will know where he is to within a few feet at any given time.
Qatada and his family were moved to a £400,000 house in Wembley, north London, in February this year after his initial release from prison as part of his ongoing fight against deportation.
He was later detained again but senior immigration judge Mr Justice Mitting released him for a second time on Tuesday.
Sitting at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission, he blocked Home Office attempts to return him to Jordan, where he faces terror charges, because he was not satisfied he was guaranteed a fair trial.
Lawyers for Theresa May, the Home Secretary, asked for him to be bailed to a Home Office address but the court refused and returned him to his Wembley home.
And Edward Fitzgerald QC, Qatada’s barrister, told Siac that he was now looking to be relocated again.
The family is reportedly paying £1,900 a month at the current property, funded through benefits.
Qatada was released from Long Lartin high security prison on Tuesday and was greeted with protesters when he arrived home.
Despite tight bail conditions, he is allowed to roam the streets for eight hours a day and will have to be monitored around the clock at a cost of £100,000 a week.
Around 60 officers from Scotland Yard, MI5 and a private security company are involved with marked police cars outside his home and undercover officers ready to follow him if he leaves his house.
Qatada is allowed outside between 8am and 4pm every day although he is not allowed to access the internet or meet certain individuals.
Visitors to his home must be approved by the Home Office and his phone line is monitored constantly.
David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said he was “completely fed up with the fact that this man is still at large in our country”.
David Anderson QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism laws, has warned it could be “years” before the case is concluded.
Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, said the fiasco showed human rights laws needed to be overhauled.
Qatada’s release is the latest setback in a battle that has now run for more than a decade.
The Home Office is to challenge the Siac decision in the Court of Appeal.

Radical cleric Abu Qatada deported from UK to Jordan

Radical cleric Abu Qatada has appeared in court in Jordan after being deported from the UK.
His plane left RAF Northolt at 02:46 BST for his home country, where he was formally charged with terror offences, which he denies.
Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "delighted" at his removal.
Abu Qatada was first arrested in the UK over alleged terror connections in 2001. He was rearrested in 2005, when attempts to deport him began.
The Palestinian-Jordanian cleric's deportation was finally able to proceed after the UK and Jordan signed a treaty agreeing that evidence obtained through torture would not be used against him.
"This dangerous man has now been removed from our shores to face the courts in his own country," she said.
She added that she wanted to streamline such deportation processes in future.
 
Changes to the bill would affect cases like Abu Qatada's, she said, and also cases in which people facing deportation claim they have a right to respect for their private and family life in the UK, as set out in article eight of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Mrs May said she hoped to reform the convention, and would not rule out the possibility of the UK withdrawing from it altogether.
"Nothing is off the table," she said.
"We're working on that at the moment," the home secretary told the BBC, adding that the Conservative manifesto for the 2015 general election would "set out clearly what we would do in relation to these issues".
Abu Qatada was accompanied on the flight of around five hours by six people from Jordan, comprising three security officials, a psychologist, a medical examiner and his Jordanian lawyer, the BBC understands.
There was tight security as Abu Qatada arrived back in Jordan - where he grew up - for the first time in more than 20 years. He was immediately driven from Marka airbase to the state security court - a journey that would have taken just a few minutes.
While the cleric has become a household name in the UK, when I did an informal survey in Amman remarkably few people had heard of him. Some people who had thought he should not have been sent back here.
One woman believed Abu Qatada was misunderstood. She told me the preacher was "very good for Islam" and that "his followers will be very glad for him to be back."
The 53-year-old had been held at Belmarsh prison in south-east London, from where a convoy of three police vehicles left at midnight.
After arriving at Jordan's Marka military airport he was driven in a green SUV, escorted by a 12-car convoy, to the sealed off state security court in Amman.
Military prosecutors charged him with conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts - relating to a plot to bomb American and Israeli tourists during Jordan's millennium celebrations.
The cleric was remanded in custody for 15 days and taken to eastern Jordan's Muwaqqar prison, a judicial official said.
After the hearing his lawyer Tayseer Diab said: "The attorney general interrogated him today, and he directed a series of accusations towards him - he accused him of conspiracy to take part in terrorist acts.
She said: "The treaty we've signed ensures that there are proper processes of exchange of evidence and will insure the treatment of Abu Qatada and others deported to Jordan."
Asked on Sky News whether Abu Qatada's wife and children would have the right to stay in the UK, Mrs May said they would have to decide what they want their future to be before the government gets involved.
Abu Qatada, whose real name is Omar Othman, was granted asylum in the UK in 1994 but the Security Service came to view him as a threat as his views hardened.
In deporting Abu Qatada, Theresa May has succeeded where many other home secretaries failed - and she is trying to press home the advantage.
Richard Reid, the would-be mid-Atlantic shoe bomber, and Zacarias Moussaoui, both jailed for involvement in terrorism, are said to have sought religious advice from him.
The cleric's sermons were also found in a flat in the German city of Hamburg used by some of those involved in 9/11.
He vowed to fight the UK's 2005 decision to deport him to Jordan to face retrial over bomb plot allegations - setting in motion an eight-year legal battle.
The dispute continued until May this year, when the cleric accepted that his right to a fair trial there was protected by the new treaty between Jordan and the UK.
