A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

London bomb suspect left suicide note

Posted by Godefroi on July 13, 2007

What could possibly have led these fine, upstanding men (mostly medical doctors) to attempt such a heinous act of brutality against average, innocent civilian citizens?  Reuters has found the answer, in a letter written by one of the perpetrators (in the Sydney Morning Herald):

 “First of all I beg Allah to accept this action from me and he to Allah to whom belongs the power and majesty makes it a sincere one and that he admits me to the highest station in paradise for verily he grants martyrdom to whom ever he wills…”

Obviously, inspiration lies in the Qur’an, for example 3:195 (Those who have … fought or been slain,- verily, I will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath;- A reward from the presence of Allah, and from His presence is the best of rewards.), or perhaps 4:74 (Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world’s life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward) and of course 9.111 (Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel [huh?] and the Qur’an.) and of course, there’s also Bukhari (Volume 4, Book 52, Number 46 – “…Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed…”).
