Counter-terror adviser Brennan bolts when asked about jihad (video)

Counter-terrorism advisor to Barack Hussein Obama and defender of the Islamic tenet of jihad runs when confronted about history of Islamic jihad. Feel safe America?

“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam…” ~ John Brennan

The Washington Times attempts to get clarity from Brennan the Arabist on the concept of jihad and whether he believes there is a greater and a lesser jihad. Islamic sources claim Muhammid did not believe in any such division, and any hadith suggesting the division is spurious, as we posted here:

So they use what they claim is a hadith, or saying of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “We have returned from the lesser Jihad to the greater Jihad, that is the struggle against the evil of oneself.” This is in fact a fabrication and is known as Mawdu’ (spurious). Hafidh al Iraqi and Ibn Hajar al Asqalani, who were hadith masters and muhaditheen, who memorised one hundred thousand hadith by Isnad and were qualified to scrutinise hadith and their authenticity, stated that this was not a saying of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) but was in fact a statement that was made by someone in the later generation named Ibrahim ibn Abi Yabla. Hence, this is not considered an evidence in the Islamic Shari’ah.

To elaborate further, it is in contradiction with the subject matter of Jihad that has been elaborated in over a hundred ayat of the Qur’an that have come with the meaning of Jihad being Qitaal, which means to slay or to kill or to fight. This was how the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam) and the Sahabah (ra) understood it. To give an example from the Seerah that was narrated by Ibn Majah with a source in Bukhari, woman came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and asked “O Messenger of Allah! Is Jihad obliged upon the women?” To which he responded, “Yes, a Jihad without Qitaal (fighting), it is the Hajj and the Umrah!”

This clearly demonstrates that Jihad is Qitaal i.e. Jihad is undertaking the physical fighting and this is how it was understood by the woman and the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam), as explained in the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) answer i.e. Jihad in Islam means fighting. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) did not respond by saying that there was the greater Jihad for everyone i.e. Jihad against oneself! Rather he informed her that Allah had prescribed the Hajj and the Umrah for her and that she would get the reward of the Mujahid for undertaking this action, as explained by Imam Sanani in his explanation in the book Sub us Salam.

  2. OH MY GOD!!! If the USA falls to Islamists the WORLD WILL FALL!!! SCARY STUFF..SOMEONE PLEASE START AND IMPEACHMENT MOVEMENT ON OBAMA ASS URGENT!

  3. BEGINNING OF THE DECLINE AND FALL OF HOSSEIN OBAMA, IS IT? IF OF COURSE THE SLEEPING AMERICAN CITIZENS, ESPEIALLY THOSE LIBERALS, AWAKE AND ARISE, OTHER WISE HE WILL TAKE THE COUNTRY TO BANKRUPTCY. MAY BE IT IS HIS ULTIMATE GOAL, DESTRUCTION OF U.S.A.

  4. WOW. Brennan won’t comment on what he regards as jihad. Clearly he does regard the concept of jihad in a radicalized framework part of his day to day job, but he won’t talk about it. He must be very nervous of getting McCrystalled. Say something that appears critical of the Narrative, and you’re out.

  5. I can appreciate how hard it is for those fighting terrorism to appease the Democrats but actually fight terrorism. You can’t use the words “war on terror” or “radical Islam” or “Muslim extremists.”

    You have to maintain that there are criminals in the world that mean to do the US harm, and quite a few of them believe the same religion, follow the same law, and say the same things before they blow you up, but they are each individuals.

    There are all just lone nut jobs; there are just a lot of them and they all say the same thing.

  6. I am a homebound person and have a question for the American people, MY PEOPLE. WHY aren’t you all coming together to fight this corrupt Nation the corrupt Politicians who don’t give a damn about me OR YOU ? WHY aren’t you getting off your ASS and your computers and hitting the streets, rather than just sitting in your homes as docile sheep and passive people waiting for the next guy to do something before you finally join in ? Have you forgotten what our forefathers fought for ? Have you forgotten the price which FREEDOM costs, and of which has already been paid in BLOOD for those freedom’s ? Have you forgotten our HISTORY ? Have you forgotten 9/11 ? Do you seriously think OUR GOVERNMENT is going to do something about it when it is IT that is HELPING IT ALONG ? IT IS PART OF THE PROBLEM. The NEW WORLD ORDER. We’re going down the drain folks, get up, stand up and gather, UNIT as one, ONE STRENGTH, let’s go down fighting rather than wait until they come knocking at your door to KILL YOU< YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR DOG, why are you sitting and reading this rather than doing something to put a stop to it ? WHY ? Who are you waiting for ? Where is your patriotism ? IS IT ONLY THERE DURING 4TH OF JULY ?

  8. The decline of America…is this how the Roman Empire eventually fell? I think we are seeing history repeat itself in the most awful way. The way things are going the Islamic flag will fly over the WH before 2050.
