Hezbollah claims Death to America
- April 18, 2003
  • Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah,
    in a speech before 150,000 supporters in a Beirut
    suburb said the U.S. will be made to suffer
    greatly as a result of its presence in Iraq,
    according to a report in the L.A. Times "In the
    past, when the Marines were in Beirut, we
    screamed, Death to America! Today, when the
    region is being filled with hundreds of thousands
    of American soldiers, Death to America was, is
    and will stay our slogan. Even before the
    U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began, Nasrallah
    raged, "The people of the region will receive
    America with rifles, blood, arms, martyrdom and
    martyrdom operations. Hezbollah, the so-called
    "attack dog" of its sponsors Iran and Syria, with
    active terrorist cells on four continents, has
    made good on its threats before In 1983, the
    group blew up the U.S. Embassy and the Marine
    barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing hundreds.
    The Marines were there to help cover Israels
    withdrawal from the capital.

TIMELINE OF BUILDING HATRED
  • 1096 - Crusades
  • 1908 - 1920 - Britain takes over territory in the
    Middle East after WW1 (Including Palestine as a
    result of the Treaty of Versailles) - Increased
    Zionism
  • 1920 - Republic of Turkey replaces Ottoman
    Caliphate
  • 1945 - The U.N. and Britain divide Palestine into
    a Jewish and Arab state after WW2
  • - Zionism - Jews from all over migrate to
    Israel.
  • 1948 - Israel declared independent Jewish state.
    (U.S.A. acknowledges Israel)
  • - Millions of Palestinians become refugees
  • 1960s 70s - Constant Jewish Arab wars
    (U.S. support of Israel)
  • 1980s - Lebanon and Beirut (Massacres and
    Barracks bombing)
  • 1991 - 1st Gulf War (Occupation of Mecca
    Usama Bin Ladin)
  • 1990s - Economic sanctions
  • 2000s - Iraq War, Afghanistan War Democracy
    Jewish settlements in Eastern Jerusalem (West
    Bank) Still NO Palestinian state

12
Think like a Middle Eastern Muslim for a minute..
  • Consider what you read in the Jihad Article
  • Are they justified in hating Jews and the
    USA??????

13
From the Jihad article
  • To those against whom war is made, permission
    is given (to fight), because they are wronged
    (They are) those who have been expelled from
    their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause)
    except that they say, "our Lord is Allah".

Zionism, gb, ww2, israel
14
From the Jihad article
  • And why should ye not fight in the cause of God
    and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated
    (and oppressed)? - Men, women and children, whose
    cry is "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town,
    whose people are oppressors and raise for us
    from thee one who will protect and raise for us
    from thee one who will help!

Palestinians
15
How has the Idea of Jihad been violated in a
terrorists mind?
Jihad -
Defend the faith
Democracy means separation of church and state
Individual Level
Submission to God (not to a government,
especially a foreign government)
Economic
Spend on the poor, not the development of
buildings and banks in an effort to accumulate
wealth for yourself
PHYSICAL
The idea of using armed self-defense as a means
of retribution against tyranny, exploitation,
and oppression in order to defend the freedom of
faith
  • Tyranny -
  • Exploitation -
  • Oppression -

Crusades, Occupation of Mecca Medina in 1st
Gulf War, restrictions on Irans nuclear
programs, implementation of Democracy (ending
theocracy)
Turkey, Israel, Afghanistan and Iraq in the 80s,
Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, (Overall occupation
in Middle East)
Economic sanctions, Support of Israel (resulting
in Palestinians in refugee camps)
16
WHY WOULD A TERRORIST DIE FOR JIHAD?
  • For Muslim extremists, to die as a martyr in the
    Jihad against the infidels, guarantees you a
    seat at the right hand of Allah.
  • 'Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall
    go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as
    he has never seen
  • They shall eat the fruits of Paradise from
    wherever they like and then nestle in these
    chandeliers
  • It is also suggests that martyrs will be
    surrounded by companions and grapevines
  • The idea of 72 virgins is not clear

17
Usamas response to targeting civilians
  • Asked whether he approved of terrorism and
    attacks on civilians, he replied
  • "We believe that the worst thieves in the world
    today and the worst terrorists are the Americans.
    Nothing could stop you except perhaps retaliation
    in kind. We do not have to differentiate between
    military or civilian. As far as we are concerned,
    they are all targets."

18
Declaration of war against USA
because the USA declared War against God
9/11 Commission
Jihad against Jews and Crusaders
The duty of Muslims is to carry out holy war
against the enemies of Islam and to expel the
Americans from the Gulf region.
Cut off the head of the snake
The presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, the
home of Islam's holiest sites, the suffering of
the Iraqi people as a result of sanctions
imposed after the Gulf War, and U.S. support of
Israel. -Usama Bin Ladin, 1998 fatwa
"we do not differentiate between those dressed in
military uniforms and civilians they are all
targets in this fatwa."
19
What does Usama Bin Ladin want?
  • The U.S.A. out of the Middle East
  • An independent Palestinian state and for us to
    stop helping Israel
  • For Americans to convert to the Islamic faith

Intellectual Jihad - Usama wants to spread Islam
to all humankind
20
QUESTION??????
  • IS IT REASONABLE TO CONSIDER THAT THE TERM JIHAD
    MAY NOT HAVE BEEN MISINTERPRETED BASED ON
    EXTREMISTS VIEWS AND USAMAS STATEMENTS??

of a Jihad (Holy War / terrorism) is
justified? Please write YES or NO on a piece of
paper (with your name on it) and pass it forward
