The Qu’ranic Laws of War the Islamists Don’t Follow

December 4, 2015

This is another meme I found over at 1000 Natural Shocks. The phrase ‘PBUH’ suggests that it does indeed come from a Muslim site, or at least one sympathetic to Muslims. The acronym stands for ‘Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him’. This is supposed to be said by Muslims whenever they mention the Prophet. There are similar respectful phrases, which Muslims are also expected to use about the other prophets venerated in Islam, like Isa – Jesus, Musa – Moses, Ayub – Job, Ibrahim – Abraham, and so on.

Shariah War Laws

This is pretty much what I was told at College when I studied Islam there – that shariah law prohibited the killing of non-combatants and so on. ISIS, al-Qaeda and the Taliban also know this stuff too. They simply don’t care, and have invented a whole load of convoluted theology to allow them to get away with murdering civilians. There was a programme on Channel 4 a while ago that interviewed a whole load of such Islamists in a seminary in Saudi Arabia. One of them said there that, of course, what they were doing was against Islamic law, but they could never stage their insurrections otherwise. It was the only thing they could do, or words to that effect.

Elsewhere on one of the Beeb’s programmes there was a piece explaining that they excuse and justify such atrocities by stating that modern economy and society means that the distinction between ‘civilian’ and ‘military’ no longer exists. Thus they justify killing civilians and non-combatants, quite against the explicit prohibition of Islamic law.
