Interviewer: Should the Muslims fight the People of the Book [i.e., Jews and Christians], in order to force them to pay the jizya poll tax? Should the Muslims fight all the People of the Book worldwide?
Sheik Ahmad Abu Quddum: This fighting is in order to remove obstacles. It is waged against countries, not against individuals. When we declare Jihad against Germany, for instance, it is declared against the German state, for refusing to allow Islam to spread to the people of Germany. We give them a choice: Either to convert to Islam, or to pay the jizya and submit to the laws of Islam. The jizya is the only tax paid by non-Muslims, whereas the Muslims pay the zakkat, the kharraj, and the rikkaz, as well as other taxes, if there is not enough money for the army. . .
Note well: not allowing Germany to be controlled by islam, by its religious laws and dictates is the same thing as 'not ALLOWING islam to spread'. So, by their definition, 'spreading' doesn't mean those who choose to can convert; 'spreading' means "Your country WILL be ruled by Islam." And if you don't want to? You will be forced to.
Interviewer: Exactly, you want to fight the states. . .
Sheik Ahmad Abu Quddum: We will not fight the people, we will not kill the people, but if a certain state insists on preventing the spreading of Islam on its soil, we will fight that state.(So conquering you isn't attacking YOU, it's attacking the State. Interesting bit of logic there, huh?)
Interviewer: So Samuel Huntington’s book The Clash of Civilizations, and even before that, Fokoyama, who predicted that the next conflict would be between Islam and the West. . . What you are saying means that they were right. . .
Sheik Ahmad Abu Quddum: There is indeed a clash of civilizations. They brought colonialism to us. . . If not for Jihad, Islam would not have reached us and all the other places. Within a quarter of a century, Islam reached most of the ancient world by means of Jihad. The common people want Islam. Anyone who doesn’t can stick to his own religion. Here in the Levant, most of our forefathers were not Muslims, but they converted to Islam because of its goodness and justice. The small minority in the Muslim countries that remained. . . (Admission that islam spread by conquest, and they want it to continue to spread that way. 'They brought colonialism to us'; interesting, that sounds kind of like what islam did to countries in the first place, doesn't it?)
Interviewer: Fine. Let me just ask you an important question. So, we are commanded to fight in order to spread the religion of Allah…
Sheik Ahmad Abu Quddum: Yes, this is Islam’s way of spreading.
Interviewer: If you come to power, will you liberate Palestine?
Sheik Ahmad Abu Quddum: Yes, yes. Jihad should be declared in order to annihilate Israel. This is a monstrous entity that must be eradicated.
So, in the case of Israel, submitting and paying the "You're not fully human tax" isn't enough, they want to kill every Jew there.
Nice people, aren't they, in the Religion of Submission?
