Note the forthright avowals that the Book of Peace itself commands them to fight against unbelievers simply because they are unbelievers (“it would have been the greatest religious duty to fight you over your infidelity”). Note also the invitation to Islam, the liberal employment of the tu quoque fallacy, and the displacement of responsibility that we have come to expect from Islamic jihadists and their allies.

We constantly hear that to speak about the jihad doctrine and Islamic supremacism as rooted in Islamic texts and teachings is to “side with the extremists.” All right — then why doesn’t a moderate Muslim go through this and refute this use of the Qur’an? It would be most interesting to see Ibrahim Hooper or some other vaunted moderate Muslim reply to the Islamic beliefs and assumptions manifest here. Honest Ibe, want to have a crack at it? Or maybe Khaleel Mohammed? Anyone? Anyone? Now would be a terrific time to delineate in specific terms your differences with this approach to Islam, wouldn’t it?

Wouldn’t it?

Here is the full statement of the 9/11 defendants, noted briefly here yesterday. Pdf of the original here.

THE ISLAMIC RESPONSE TO THE GOVERNMENT’S NINE ACCUSATIONS

In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate

The 9/11 Shura’ Council

Many thanks to God who revealed the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran, and may God praise his messenger, the prophet Mohamed, so that he causes mercy to the two realms. Also, may God praise the prophet’s household, his entire companionship, and his followers until judgment day.

With regards to these nine accusations that you are putting us on trial for; to us, they are not accusations. To us they are badges of honor, which we carry with pride. Many thanks to God, for his kind gesture, and choosing us to perform the act of Jihad for his cause and to defend Islam and Muslims.

Therefore, killing you and fighting you, destroying you and terrorizing you, responding back to your attacks, are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion.

The rest here.
