The Islamic religion is a moral religion and it does not make the sane disbeliever and the insane one equivilant. The sane one is rational, and he knows what he is doing. He is mature; he insists on his actions by going out to fight Muslims by choice. He is not forced. This is different from the child, the woman or the old man who doesn't declare war on Islam and stays in his home or city. This is why a Jizyah, i.e. tax, is taken from infidels and polytheists, in return for protection and safety. As for the one who is bragging about being a terrorist, he is actually a donkey carrying books, i.e. an idiot, and immoral, along with his family. He wants to make up for his shortcoming by killing innocent people, whether they are Muslims, polytheists or infidels. Islam does not permit killing even the animal without a rational reason, such as preventing damage or harm from the respected spirit, which is the human spirit. As for those terrorists, they are a group of alarmed donkeys fleeing from a lion. They are worthless and God will punish them severely, in the present life and in the Hereafter.
We are honored to be terrorists. God called us terrorists before they did. He said: "And prepare against them whatever you are able to, in terms of power and of steeds of war, by which you may terrify the enemy of God and your enemy, and others besides them, whom you do not know, but whom God knows." He also said: "You, i.e. believers, cause more fear within their breasts than God. That is because they are a people who do not understand." Whoever links terrorism, as you call it, to Muslims, should know that we are proud of it, but we are far from shedding the blood of a Muslim or killing one without having the right do so. We are far from killing Muslims. When they tell you that terrorists are the ones who kill, they are actually telling a lie.
Fear God when dealing with the people! What you are doing is not terrorism! But when someone defends his religion, his honor and his country, he is regarded as a terrorist! You pretend to be tolerant and at the same time you are terrorists; wait for the great day! You who allowed America to enter the country, aren't they the enemies of humanity? Is there anyone that asks his enemy to support him against his own brother? You are like dogs, but dogs don't bite each other, and they don't ask foreign dogs to help them. An enemy can never be a friend!

The relief of God is coming soon. He is over everything competent.
God's victory's is near. He is all-powerful.
He who kills an innocent person is at least not innocent in motive or relation.
In the name of God, the most gracious, the most Merciful. "I was sent to complete the good manners." This is our greatest prophet's saying, peace be upon him and all his family. They do not belong to Islam or to Mohammed's religion; it belongs to the group of infidels. When the prophet entered Makah, he captured the prisoners who belonged to Abu Sofian's family and his infidel relatives; he asked them: “What do you think I will do to you?!” Abu Sofian, damn him and his family, said: "A good brother and the son of a good brother." The prophet told them: "Go; you are all free." These are the manners of our prophet, who was taught by God. How can you say that they are Muslims, while Islam is free of them till the Day of Judgment? Whoever kills a Muslim, his fate is hell. Peace be upon you!
We will never back down nor give up; we will go back to our country; we'll fight this enemy till we eliminate him, not only from Palestine, but from the whole universe!
I wonder how people dare to relate terror to Islam. Is it possible that the Prophet recommended terrorism??!!!!!!!!!
Dearly beloved, the Prophet recommended tolerance, helping the weak, sympathy, and every good deed…whereas terrorism was recommended by devils, Satan, those who have weak egos and angels of fire… God and His messengers damn all those who murder or plan to murder people…as they are surely going to eternal hell.
Is this tolerance? Is this the grace and mercy which you are talking about when you say that terrorism is mandated by law and prove it with Qur'anic verses?! You have never left anything right.May God enlighten your heart and all your hearts; we just need to know who our Lord is.Our Lord is there.

During war, Islam has forbidden killing old men, women, children, the wounded and those who have left their weapons and surrendered.The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, did not kill Wahshy, who killed Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet, after he repented and converted to Islam; God bless all of them.Our religion, Islam, condemns bloodshed and came to spread compassion and peace. All of the terrorists act contrary to the instruction of the Islamic religion.
There is no power except with God the Almighty.
Martyrdom in the cause of God is currently classified as a suicide act. However, I believe that whoever carries out a suicide attack against the infidels is a martyr.
Terrorism follows no religion. Beware of it!
We seek God's help.
In the name of God, the Most Merciful, the ever Merciful. God the Almighty said what can be translated as: “And no burdened soul can bear another's burden.”
God's relief is near; He is omnipotent!
Islam is the religion of tolerance and good manners.
God is Greater!
God will give victory to His religion, despite the hatred of infidels!
Unfortunately, we only see what we want to see and close our eyes, so as not to see what we do not want to see. Al-Qaeda was established as the result of a group of facts and under some circumstances that are known to all Arabs. We are the poor people who do not know anything.
The USA is the source of terrorism, and we all remember what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This shows us the origin of terrorism. We hear every day about the crimes in the western states, especially in the USA. I also believe that the USA and Israel are behind all the turbulences in our Arab states. All the bombings that take place in Iraq are planned ahead and they aim at defaming Islam and Muslims. These acts want to tarnish the image of our true religion. Your plan is now disclosed and you will never succeed in deceiving anyone. They plot, but God will repel their plotting. O God! Repel their conspiracies. They lie to us, while God told us: “Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind. Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency; and ye believe in God.” This propaganda will not deceive any Muslim. God may give respite, but he never forgets. Woe to those who defame Islam, and let us thank God for the blessing of Islam.
We ask God to make their conspiracies turn against them.
Terrorism and killing are not part of Islam. Islam is a mercy and blessing.
Can we see?
I don't know what to say! God is sufficient for us, for He is the Best Disposer of affairs! May God punish you for posting this topic! I swear by God, I think you are helping the Jews and Christians with this video. If al-Qaeda are terrorists, then we are terrorists. Terrorism is an obligation. Almighty God says: "And prepare against them whatever you can, in terms of power and of steeds of war, by which you may terrify the enemy of God and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know, but whom God knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of God will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged." -Al-Anfal: 60. I swear by the One who created the skies above without pillars to raise them, al-Qaeda emerged to defend the honor of Muslims, not to kill you, but you are the sort of people who…!!!! God is sufficient for us, for He is the Best Disposer of affairs! I swear by God, you will never succeed in achieving your aim! You will all die! Almighty God says: "… and God is predominant over His affairs, but most of the people do not know." Thank God, the Lord of the Worlds!
Those are not Muslims. They are infidels. They think we are infidels and that they are protecting Islam against us. God exists and He sees!

Anyone who defends his land is now a terrorist? And the one who dies for a loaf of bread, we say it is immoral? When will the people wake up from this illusion? Where is the truth? Or we are already lost? Who is behind the destruction of the Arabs and keeping away from them for years? We want a word of truth because people are lost. I hope we have men like Khalid ibn al-Walid, an-Nasir Salah El-Deen. Who is behind the destruction of the al-Aqssa Mosque after all these years? The poet Hassan Rabea
