The answer to ending Jihad is found in Koran 2:106, “If We abrogate [nullify] any verse or cause it to be forgotten We will replace it by a better one or one similar.”
For over a century, Jews and Christians have suffered the terror of ethnic cleansing throughout the Muslim Middle East. Christian survivors fled abroad while Jews left their countries of origin, most arriving in the State of Israel as refugees. Despite such hostility, Muslims can decide to make peace with the world.
Islamic jurists have the discretionary powers to build peaceful relationships between Islam, the Judeo-Christian world, and other faiths and cultures. Calls for Jihad can be nullified and replaced by “better” Koranic verses advocating acceptance, pluralism, and peace with all others.
Many factors impacted the shift toward today’s merciless terrorism—Islamic Jihad. Historic policies such as the Charter of Omar, the more recent Czarist and Nazi influence, and teachings from antisemitic, anti-Western ideologues, all contributed to Jihadi thinking and culture.
Hamas Jihad offers an in-depth look into the history and mentality of Islamic Jihadism, focusing mainly on the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood—Hamas.
Along with other important topics, Hamas Jihad delves into:
• An analysis of The Hamas Covenant in relation to the Czarist Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Hitler’s Mein Kampf
• The influence of Arab Islamist Ideologues
• The development of Hamas from 1948 to 2016
• Hamas condemnation of secular Palestinian Nationalism
• A comparison of The Hamas Covenant and The Palestinian National Charter
• Conflict resolution through Islamic abrogation
• Consequences for a world unable to halt Islamic Jihadism
