According to KTVA – CBS Alaska, July 26, 2010 by Carolyn Kuckertz, Federal agents say 35-year-old Paul Gene Rockwood, Jr., aka “Bilal”, created a hit list of people he wanted to see executed.
Rockwood was living in Virginia when he converted to Islam around the beginning of 2002. Shortly after converting, he began following the teachings of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who is known for promoting violent Jihad ideology.
Prosecutors say while studying of al-Awlaki’s teachings, Rockwood developed a “personal conviction that it was his religious responsibility to exact revenge by death on anyone who desecrated Islam.”
Well that’s comforting. A VA man and converts to Islam and creates a hit list of people who desecrated Islam. Here I thought that writing under a pseudo name was being overly cautious.
Islam is an evil ideology, but not because of extremists like Anwar al-Awlaki. Nope. It was Muhammad, who set the example by having people killed for SPEAKING against him or Islam. For example, Muhammad ordered the murder of Abu Afak, a 12o year old Jewish man, who had urged his fellow Medinans to doubt Muhammad. Read about it from several Islamic sources. At the same link is the story of Asma B. Marwan, a female poet, who like Abu Afak had verbally insulted the prophet. She was dead soon afterward too. Take a wild guess who had her killed.
Do you think sharia is not creeping into American culture? This case removes all doubt. A New Jersey Judge acknowledges that a Muslim man violated New Jersey laws, but rules “not guilty” on the grounds that he was operating under his beliefs and consistent with his practices.
Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch provides some of the theological justification from Islamic authoritative sources for a Muslim man raping his wife:
Muhammad said: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).
He also said: “By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).
First to report on this case was Eugene Volokh of The Volokh Conspiracy, a blog written mainly by law professors. Volokh writes:
While recognizing that defendant had engaged in sexual relations with plaintiff against her expressed wishes … the judge did not find sexual assault or criminal sexual conduct to have been proven.
The judge’s reasoning according to court records:
This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.
The judge needs a good proof reader, but that’s beside the point. The judge really needs to reject the free exercise of religious beliefs and practices WHEN DOING SO HARMS ANOTHER HUMAN BEING OR OTHERWISE BREAKS THE LAWS OF THE LAND!
Thank God for the appeals process because this sharia-loving judge was overruled by a higher court, who stated:
As the judge recognized, the case thus presents a conflict between the criminal law and religious precepts. In resolving this conflict, the judge determined to except defendant from the operation of the State’s statutes as the result of his religious beliefs. In doing so, the judge was mistaken (emphasis mine).
America Patriot and member of ACT! for America.
I happened to catch a Fox News contributer this morning stating his opinion about the NYC Mega Mosque. In essence, he said we cannot forsake the Constitution and Freedom of Religion and that’s why we shouldn’t forbid the building of the 13 story Mosque near Ground Zero.
While we should never abandon the principles of our Constitution and Freedom of Religion, we should never permit organized treason to operate freely on our soil. Missed on many loving, tolerant Americans is that Islam contains doctrines, which mandate the overthrow of non-Muslim governments and the imposition of sharia (Islam expressed in a set of laws).
If Islam was limited to religious beliefs and behaviors surrounding prayer and good moral character, there would be no objection to the NYC Monster Mosque. If Islam were so limited, it would be true that a very small number of radicals have taken over a world religion. Unfortunately, Islam is not limited to piety as we understand it.
From the primary sources of Islam, the Qur’an (statements by Allah) & Hadith (records of Islamic history, including the teachings and example of Muhammad) come principles, or doctrines, which radically differ from the typical Western understanding of religion. The prophet Muhammad is the highest example for Muslims to emulate and his example included prayer, but also militant conquest of people groups and the subjugation of the conquered to Islamic rule.
The political nature of Islam is missed on the vast majority of Americans. The political nature of Islam is the reason why there have been bloody boarders around Muslim controlled land for Islam’s 1400 year history. We oppose the political side of Islam, which cannot be divorced from the whole of Islam without severe damage to the example of the revered prophet and the supposed commands of Allah.
You cannot change the Qur’an and authoritative Hadith. You will never see the eradication of fundamentalist Islam so long as these books are preached.
We recognize and loath “terrorist groups” like Hamas, Hizballah, Al Quaeda, the talaban, … We do not yet recognize the larger number of like-minded Muslims, who use politics and the courts to wage the same war for the same ultimate objectives – imposing sharia on non-Muslim nations.
Leading Muslims like Imam Fiesel Rauf, who is spearheading the NYC Monster Mosque, do not use bombs as terrorists proudly do in the name of Allah, but they are engaged in the same jihad, and are inspired by the same Qur’an.
It is critical that we learn that Muslim leaders like Rauf are skilled at deceiving the societies in which they fight. Rauf and his ilk speak soothingly about mutual understanding, reconciliation and peace, while concealing the fact that they strive for Allah and the establishment of sharia in the USA!
The more we understand about the political side of Islam, and especially the theologically justified tactics for conquering non-Muslim lands, the more we will resist Islam as we would resit Nazism, or any other ideologically driven political movement that seeks to overthrow our government and our freedoms.
Freedom of religion? Yes! Freedom of treason? NO!

Apostasy Fatwas of Shaykh Sa‘id Hijjawi: former Grand Mufti of Jordon and prominent signatory of "A Common Word Between Us and You"
The Grand Mufti’s Fatwas:
🙂 Grand Hypocrite, Grand Liar, Grand Muslim 🙂
This post provides the main points of the apostasy fatwas written by the chief scholar of the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute, Shaykh Sa‘id Hijjawi. More bio info can be found here.
Shaykh Said Hijjawi is one of the leading jurists of the Middle East and has participated in high-level, international interfaith dialogue meetings with Christians. The Shaykh is a prominent signatory to the open letter, A Common Word Between Us and You, which is addressed to Christians around the world.
Many Christians perceive Islamic outreach to the Western world, like A Common Word, as a good faith effort toward reconciliation between the two faiths. Others of us have become knowledgeable of sharia and are quite skeptical of such publicized ‘outreach efforts’ from Islamic leaders. Given his written fatwas, calling for the death of former Muslims, we perceive the Grand Shaykh to be a Great Fake.
The following is an excerpt from an article by Mark Durie: Verses of the Qur’an, as well as hadiths (traditions) of Muhammad are cited by the Grand Mufti to support his rulings: some of these authorities are reproduced below.The pronoun ‘he’ is used to refer to the apostate (a Muslim, who rejects Islam), following the Arabic, although the penalties apply to both men and women):
Whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be acceptedfrom him and in the Hereafter he shall be among the losers. (Sura 3:58)
- Apostasy must be proved by the actions or declarations of belief of the apostate.
- To be declared an apostate, someone must be an adult (having attained puberty), and be in their right mind.
- Someone who is coerced to renounce Islam overtly, while remaining a believer in their heart, cannot be declared to be an apostate:
Whoever disbelieves in God after [having affirmed] his faith — except for him who is compelled, while his heart is at rest in faith — but he who opens up his breast to unbelief, upon such shall be wrath from God, and there is a great chastisement for them. (Sura 16:106)
- Before an apostate is sentenced, he must be invited to repent and come back to Islam:
Say to the disbelievers, that if they desist, that which is past will be forgiven them; but if they return, the way of [dealing with] the ancients has already gone before! (Sura 8:38)
The punishment for apostasy is death, mandated by Allah when he said ‘sedition (fitna) is graver than slaying’:
They ask you about the sacred month, and fighting in it. Say, ‘Fighting in it is a grave thing; but to bar from God’s way, and disbelief in Him, and the Sacred Mosque, and to expel its people from it – that is graver in God’s sight; and sedition is graver than slaying.’ They will not cease to fight against you until they turn you from your religion if they are able; and whoever of you turns from his religion, and dies disbelieving – their works have failed in this world and the Hereafter. Those are the inhabitants of the Fire, abiding therein. (Sura 2:217)
- The death penalty is also supported by clear sayings of Muhammad (hadiths):
- The prophet said ‘Whoever changes his religion, kill him.’
- Muhammad gave three reasons for which the killing of a Muslim is a legal act: infidelity after belief, adultery after marriage, and murder (defined as the illegal killing of another).
- The sentence for apostasy must be passed by the Muslim ruler.
If the apostate is not put to death, other rules apply:
- His marriage is annulled by virtue of his apostasy.
- He cannot inherit the wealth of any of his relatives – whether they are Muslims or not – because the apostate is legally regarded as dead.
- None of his actions after apostasy has any legal validity (as the apostate is a legal non-person).
- An apostate cannot be remarried, whether to a Muslim or a non-Muslim.
- He cannot be a guardian for anyone else, so he loses custody of his children, and an apostate father has no say over his daughters’ marriages.
Those who wait in watch for you, and, if a victory comes to you from God, say, ‘Were we not with you?’ but if the disbelievers have some luck, they say, ‘Did we not gain mastery over you, and did we not defend you against the believers?’ God will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection, and God will never grant the disbelievers a way over the believers. (Sura 4:141)
- An apostate must not be prayed for by Muslims after their death, and must not be buried in a Muslim cemetery.
- If a male apostate repents and comes back to Islam, and wishes to resume his marriage, he must remarry his wife with a new ceremony, and provide a new dowry for her.
- The apostate’s wealth and possessions are to be entailed upon an heir. If the apostate repents and returns to Islam, he receives his wealth back. If he dies while still apostate, his wealth is inherited by his Muslim heir, but only the amount which he had at the time of his apostasy. Any wealth which has accrued after he left Islam is considered fay (and thus the collective property of the Muslim community).

Group asks American Muslim leaders nationwide to repudiate Sharia’s requirement to execute Muslim apostates.
The group, Former Muslims United, has developed a document they call the “Muslim Pledge for Religious Freedom and Safety from Harm for Former Muslims” or The Freedom Pledge. Muslim leaders are receiving the pledge with a request that they sign and return it.
The document cites eight different sources to establish the fact that mainstream Islam includes doctrines requiring apostates to be executed. Here’s just one example:
All four schools of Sunni Islamic law… as well as the other main schools of Shia Islamic law… unanimously agree that a former Muslim male, also known as an apostate, must be executed. While some hold that an apostate woman should also be executed.
Interesting isn’t it? A majority of the most dedicated and knowledgeable members of the ‘religion of peace and tolerance’ advocate murdering the ones, who part with Islam, and yet many would claim that I am the one scaring people and using hate speech!
To what are the Islamic leaders being asked to agree? Stated at the bottom of the pledge is:
I renounce, repudiate and oppose any physical intimidation, or worldly and corporal punishment, of apostates from Islam, in whatever way that punishment may be determined or carried out by myself or any other Muslim including the family of the apostate, community, Mosque leaders, Shariah court or judge, and Muslim government or regime.
A quote from Charles Krauthammer – columnist and TV news analyst, July 2, 2010
Attorney General Eric Holder’s avoidance of the obvious continues the absurd and embarrassing refusal of the Obama administration to acknowledge who out there is trying to kill Americans and why. In fact, it has banned from its official vocabulary the terms jihadism, Islamist, and Islamic terrorism. Islamist fundamentalism is not only a risk factor, it is the risk factor, the common denominator linking all the great terror attacks of this century – from 9/11 to Mumbai, from Fort Hood to Times Square, from, London to Madrid to Bali. The one thing that united them was the Jihadist vision in whose name they acted. To deny this undeniable truth leads to further absurdities. There’s a final reason why the administration’s cowardice about identifying those trying to kill us cannot be allowed to pass. It trivializes the war between Jihadi barbarism and Western decency, and diminishes the memory of those who have died fighting it.
And with statements like these from Islamic authoritative sources, why would we expect otherwise?

|Tabari IX:69||“Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.”|
|Qur’an:48:16||“Say (Muhammad) to the wandering desert Arabs who lagged behind: ‘You shall be invited to fight against a people given to war with mighty prowess.

|Tabari IX:88||“Abdallah Azdi came to the Messenger, embraced Islam, and became a good Muslim. Allah’s Apostle invested Azdi with the authority over those who had surrendered and ordered him to fight the infidels from the tribes of Yemen. Azdi left with an army by the Messenger’s command. The Muslims besieged them for a month. Then they withdrew, setting a trap. When the Yemenites went in pursuit, Azdi was able to inflict a heavy loss on them.”|

I will fight against them even to secure the cord used for hobbling the feet of a camel which they used to pay if they withhold it now.’ Allah had justified fighting against those who refused to pay Zakat.”|
|Muslim:C9B1N33||“The Prophet said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and they establish prostration prayer, and pay Zakat. If they do it, their blood and property are protected.'”|

I caught hold of a man and he said: ‘There is no god but Allah,’ but I attacked him with a spear anyway. It once occurred to me that I should ask the Apostle about this. The Messenger said: ‘Did he profess “There is no god but Allah,” and even then you killed him?’ I said: ‘He made a profession out of the fear of the weapon I was threatening him with.’ The Prophet said: ‘Did you tear out his heart in order to find out whether it had professed truly or not?'”|

They say: ‘Our Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?'”|
|Qur’an:4:78||“Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers strong and high! So what is wrong with these people, that they fail to understand these simple words?”|
|Qur’an:4:84||“Then fight (Muhammad) in Allah’s Cause. Incite the believers to fight with you.”|
|Qur’an:4:94||“Believers, when you go abroad to fight wars in Allah’s Cause, investigate carefully, and say not to anyone who greets you: ‘You are not a believer!’ Coveting the chance profits of this life (so that you may despoil him). With Allah are plenteous spoils and booty.”|
|Qur’an:4:95||“Not equal are believers who sit home and receive no hurt and those who fight in Allah’s Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who fight with their possessions and bodies to those who sit home. Those who fight He has distinguished with a special reward.”|
|Qur’an:4:100||“He who leaves his home in Allah’s Cause finds abundant resources and many a refuge. Should he die as a refugee for Allah and His Messenger His reward becomes due and sure with Allah. When you travel through the earth there is no blame on you if you curtail your worship for fear unbelievers may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are your enemy.”|
|Qur’an:4:102||“When you (Prophet) lead them in prayer, let some stand with you, taking their arms with them. When they finish their prostrations, let them take positions in the rear. And let others who have not yet prayed come – taking all precaution, and bearing arms. The Infidels wish, if you were negligent of your arms, to assault you in a rush. But there is no blame on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because you are ill; but take precaution. For the Unbelieving Infidels Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment.”|
|Qur’an:4:104||“And do not relent in pursuing the enemy.”|
