Why our enemies hate us

WorldNetDaily: Al-Qaida rejects Saudi ultimatum

Many people have tried to identify the factors motivating those who would violate our God-given rights to Life and Liberty. It seems few have taken them at their word:

"We did not take this path [of Jihad] because someone misled us or for the sake of some person. Rather, we read in the Book of Allah [the Quran] 'Oh you who believe, what is it with you, that when you are asked to go forth to fight for the sake of Allah you cling heavily to the ground? Are you more satisfied with this world than with the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life as compared with the Hereafter [Quran 9:38].'

"We went forth to fight for the sake of Allah, and we saw the lands of the Muslims conquered and their holy places defiled by Jews, Christians, Shiites, and polytheists, and especially the land of the two holy places [the Arabian Peninsula], and so we undertook Jihad in it.

"Oh demonic rulers! Jihad for the sake of Allah is one of the religious obligations of Islam, which has been practiced by the heroes of the Islamic nation, as a way of removing injustice to them, slaughtering their enemies, and aspiring towards rightly guided caliphate. Jihad is a principle of faith that flows in our blood and gushes from our hearts."

"The law of Islam brought by Muhammad is unbelief in anything that is worshipped other than Allah, and relinquishing and showing hostility to unbelief and unbelievers, and empowering the law of Allah in all matters of life so that there should be no discord and so that all religion should be Allah's alone."
