The radical Islamists Obama is supporting at our expense in Syria do more to broaden our multicultural horizons than just eat human flesh and crucify Christians. They also extend the “if it feels good, do it” sexual creed of their liberal allies by calling for incest:
Last year, according to Arabic media accounts, “Saudi cleric Nasser al-‘Umar issued a fatwa permitting mujahidin [jihadis] in Syria to have sex-jihad with their sisters [muharamhum] if no one else is available. The Saudi preacher also praised the mujahidin for their ongoing fight against, in his words, the machine of infidelity and oppression, that is, the Syrian and Iranian regimes.”
Few patriots are fans of the Syrian or Iranian regimes. But the Obama-backed, al Qaeda–affiliated terrorists trying to take over Syria on behalf of Islam represent a change for the even worse.
As shocking as this report may seem, it is not the first of its kind. For example, according to this Arabic documentary video (click “cc” for English subtitles), “The new jihad allows brothers and sisters in Syria belonging to the [al-Qaeda linked] al-Nusra Front to marry each other under the name of jihad because of the lack of girls among fighters of that organization.”
One man appears on video saying, “At the Zawia mountain there is an imam called Imam Hussein. They bring him a brother and a sister, he says ‘Allahu Akbar’ on them three times to have sex together and make them husband and wife.”
It’s a good deal for the sisters, because as a reward for helping to keep up the morale of horny Soldiers of Allah, they get to go to Paradise — or so they are apparently told.
The more you learn about Islam, the more the seeming contradictions with liberalism melt away, and you realize that it is no wonder Muslims and moonbats are able to work together toward common goals. For progressives, “the end justifies the means.” Their Islamic allies word it only slightly differently:
The fact is, the maxim, “necessity makes the prohibited permissible,” is responsible for any number of seeming contradictions: Muslim women must chastely be covered head-to-toe—yet, in the service of jihad, they are allowed to prostitute their bodies. Homosexuality is forbidden—but permissible if rationalized as a way to kill infidels. Lying is forbidden—but permissible to empower Islam. Suicide is forbidden—but permissible during the jihad—called “martyrdom.” Stealing is forbidden—but the rightful booty of the jihadi who conquers infidels.
The moral of the story? Shariah is only draconian and rigid for those who find themselves living under its jurisprudence. But as for those who work to empower Allah’s law—chief among them, the jihadis—not only are they permitted to ignore Shariah, they are permitted to ignore basic standards of morality.
Hence the ancient and widespread appeal of the jihad.
