THE FATWA (Religious Ruling) AGAINST AMERICA
(excerpts) “…in compliance with Allah’s order, we issue the following fatwa to all Muslims:
We — with Allah’s help — call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema 1, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.”
“The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies — civilians and military — is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it…”

Jihad against Jews and Crusaders – World Islamic Front Statement 2
The preceding excerpts from the 1998 World Islamic Front Statement hardly sound that Islam should be considered a “religion of peace,” yet, that is what Muslim apologists, many American politicians, Military Leaders, Educators, Law Enforcement, Liberal Mainstream Media, and even Jewish and Christian Faith Leaders are led to believe and want you to believe.
Why Have U.S. Presidents Misled the American Public on Defining Islam?
For the record, Islam does not mean peace; it means submission. You may recall that after the September 11, 2001 attacks on America president George W. Bush addressed the nation and the world from the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C. on September 17th and stated, in part: “The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace.” 3
How could America’s Commander in Chief not know the real meaning of Islam? As leader of the Free World, how was it that our nation’s president could be so uninformed about a powerful ideological enemy that aspires to attain global dominance by forcing Western Civilization into the submission of accepting Islam as the only true religion, governed by Sharia, Islamic law?
On February 18, 2015, president Barack Hussein Obama addressed the Summit on Countering Violent Extremism and stated, “..we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam.” 4 Obama failed to truthfully report the fact that fundamental Islamic ideology is at war with the U.S., as well as all Western Civilization.
Obama also appointed members of the Muslim Brotherhood to high levels within his administration while nations such as “…Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have designated the Brotherhood as a terrorist group.” Meanwhile, In 2017, ” A senior Muslim Brotherhood official, Mohammed Sudan, told an Arab newspaper that the group’s international leadership has launched a major PR campaign to influence the U.S. media and members of Congress to oppose the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization… The Egyptian government warned that the Brotherhood has a lobby in the U.S. disguised as civil society organizations. An Egyptian government website cited a study done by a think-tank in Cairo that concluded that the Brotherhood is trying to influence U.S. policy using affiliates in America that “aim to spread the Muslim Brotherhood’s extremist ideologies in the U.S.,” in the words of the website.
A senior UAE official likewise said that the Brotherhood’s American lobby was responsible for political blowback over his country’s previous designation of the Brotherhood and two of its U.S.-based entities, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society (MAS).” 5
President Donald Trump, in his 2016 presidential campaign, exposed the Muslim Brotherhood as an Islamic entity that threatened America’s security through the massive illegal crossing of our southern border. His campaign message stated that he would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terror Organization, if elected.
“The Brotherhood official (Mohammad Sudan) predicted that the group would not be designated by the Trump Administration and that the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act introduced into Congress would fail. He claimed that his organization had made contact with governmental officials and members of Congress and convinced them that the Brotherhood is opposed to terrorism, even though the Brotherhood’s Palestinian wing—Hamas—is designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.” [ also ref. 5 ]
President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign courted the nation’s Muslims and promised to add Muslim voices to every level of his administration if elected. Biden expressed his wish that Islam could be taught in America’s classrooms. 6
The 9/11 Commission Report Avoided the Connection of Islam to Terrorism
Not only did President Bush misunderstand the real meaning of Islam, the entire group of individuals tasked with producing the 9/11 Commission Report for the American public also had no apparent clue as to the ideological motive behind the attacks. Here are exact quotes from the 9/11 Commission Report and the Executive Summary of the 9/11 Commission Report, published in 2004:
“Islam is not the enemy. It is not synonymous with terror. Nor does Islam teach terror. America and its friends oppose a perversion of Islam, not the great world faith itself. Lives guided by religious faith, including literal beliefs in holy scriptures, are common to every religion, and represent no threat to us.”

“The enemy is not Islam, the great world faith, but a perversion of Islam.”
Page 16 of Executive Summary Report (Sequential Page 21 of PDF document)
Misplaced Blame on “Islamist Terrorism” and Not the Real Source
The 9/11 Commission Report failed to acknowledge the fundamental ideology and teachings of Islam within the Quran and Ahadith, including teachings of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, that obligate all Muslims to wage jihad as an Holy War. Instead, the final report blamed al-Qaeda, one of many Muslim terror organizations, as if it was an heretical extremist group that did not represent the true ideology of Islam:
“But the enemy is not just ‘terrorism,’ some generic evil. This vagueness blurs the strategy. The catastrophic threat at this moment in history is more specific. It is the threat posed by Islamist terrorism – especially the al Qaeda network, its affiliates, and its ideology.”
Page 362 of 9/11 Commission Report July 2004 (Sequential page 379 of PDF document)
– The 9/11 Commission Report,
The same misguided assessment continues today at the peril of Western Civilization by naming all other Islamic terrorist groups, such as ISIS, ISIL, Taliban, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, etc., as extremist groups when they are actually sincere and devout followers of fundamental Islam. The truth is that all Islamic groups believe that they are modern day “freedom fighters” whose collective goal is to establish a global Caliphate that will govern all nations, ruling by Sharia.
The Real Source and Motive: The Quran and Ahadith
Whenever Muslims, as a terrorist group or lone-wolf individuals, carry out jihadist attacks and violence against non-Muslims, they will shout “Allahu Akbar,” citing specific verses from the Quran and sayings of Muhammad (Ahadith). The Quran verses and sayings of Muhammad justify their motive to take action against the “unbelievers.” In many reported incidents, Muslim men will even cite verses from the Quran while raping and beating non-Muslim women because rape is allowed in Islam. 7
Pentagon Briefing on 9/11
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, a Pentagon briefing was released and cited within an article published in 2006, titled: “Suicide bombers follow Quran, concludes Pentagon briefing” 8 A portion of the article reads:
“Suicide in defense of Islam is permitted, and the Islamic suicide bomber is, in the main, a rational actor,” concludes a recent Pentagon briefing paper titled, “Motivations of Muslim Suicide Bombers.”
“The briefing – produced by a little-known Pentagon intelligence unit called the Counterintelligence Field Activity, or CIFA – cites a number of passages from the Quran dealing with jihad, or “holy” warfare, martyrdom and Paradise, where “beautiful mansions” and “maidens” await martyr heroes. In preparation for attacks, suicide terrorists typically recite passages from six surahs, or chapters, of the Quran: Baqura (Surah 2), Al Imran (3), Anfal (8), Tawba (9), Rahman (55) and Asr (103).”
Iran’s Shia Sectarian Alliance Against America in the Attacks of 9/11
While the Lebanese terror group, Hezbollah (Shia), has sectarian disagreements with Al-Qaeda (Sunni), both view America, and Israel, as common enemies. Reportedly the two Islamic groups set aside their differences and collaborated in facilitating the hijacking of the four passenger jets on September 11, 2001 for their attacks on America. Iran reportedly provided aid and assistance to some or all of the hijackers. Three of the hijacked aircraft were used in destroying the north and south Towers of the World Trade Center and Pentagon building: American Airlines Flight 11; United Airlines Flight 175, and American Airlines Flight 77, respectively. The fourth plane, United Flight 93, may have been intended to attack the White House or the U.S. Capitol but was diverted when brave passengers aboard rushed the cabin forcing the plane into a nosedive and minutes later crashed in a rural field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Reported Timeline of the Four Hijacked Passenger Planes: September 11, 2001 9
8:45 AM: American Airlines Flight 11, (Boeing 767) Boston to Los Angeles with 92 people onboard, crashes into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.
9:03 AM: United Airlines Flight 175, (Boeing 767) Boston to Los Angeles with 65 people onboard, flies into the south tower of the World Trade Center.
9:40 AM: American Airlines Flight 77, (Boeing 757) en route from Dulles Airport, Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles with 64 people onboard crashes into the Pentagon.
10:00 AM: United Airlines Flight 93, (Boeing 757) crashes near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, approximately 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
A Saudi Connection?
Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers involved in commandeering the hijacked planes were Saudi nationals. Additionally, while air traffic throughout the nation was immediately halted and all planes ordered to be grounded on the morning of September 11, 2001, our government reportedly allowed several Saudi Arabian citizens to board planes and quickly depart the United States. There has been no explanation regarding the identity of those Saudi citizens nor any reason given for why their flights were not grounded like all others that morning.
9/11: The Lesson, Unlearned
September 11, 2023 will mark 22 years since the fateful events of the morning that dramatically changed the way of life for Americans and all citizens throughout the world Yet, the hijacking of planes is not the only concern. Attacks in the name of Islam come in all forms. We read of Muslim jihadis donning explosive belts that are detonated on buses, in restaurants, in nightclubs, and outdoor events. Add mass shootings at venues, lone-wolf knife and acid attacks on the streets, and intentional ramming of vehicles into crowded sidewalks, parades and other crowd gatherings. Muslim Jihadis are trained to mentally prepare for and seek any opportunity to kill and strike terror into the hearts of the “unbelievers.” Each perpetrator does so with the understanding that they will be killed in the process, and they accept that. The evidence points to the fact that it is the fundamental Islamic ideology and religious obligation for Muslims to secure this world for global domination at all costs including martyrdom. The incentive is that martyrs will be guaranteed immediate entry into an Islamic paradise where sensual pleasures abound. That same guarantee applies for seventy family members, as noted below in the following Islamic teachings:
“The Prophet said, ‘The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr).'”
(Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 2, Number 35: Narrated Abu Huraira)
“The intercession of a martyr will be accepted for seventy members of his family” (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 14, Number 2516, Narrated Abud Darda’)
“Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfillment of (the heart’s) desires; Gardens enclosed, and grapevines; And voluptuous women of equal age;” (Qur’an: 078.031 – 078.033)
Interfaith Deception in Churches and Synagogues
While Muslim terrorists take the violent route in advancing the cause of Islam, a deceptive method of effectively disarming and gaining advantage over non-Muslim societies is through Interfaith Dialogue and Building Bridges events conducted at churches and synagogues throughout America and Europe. This is where Muslim representatives make the false claims that Islam is a sister religion to Judaism and Christianity, that Muslims believe in the same God as Jews and Christians, and that there can be peaceful coexistence between all. That, however, is negated by Islamic tenets including using deception that Muslims must abide by and will not be mentioned during Interfaith events. For example:
“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.” (Quran:5:51)
And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away! (Quran 9.30) [Shakir]
“It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.” (Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4366)
Lying is Permissible in Islam
Book 17 of Prohibited (and Permissible Acts) Chapter 261 – Falsehood that is Permissible:
“A liar is not the one who tries to bring about a reconciliation between the people and speaks good to avert dispute or to convey good.” [Al-Bukhari].
It may be concluded that falsehood is permissible in the following three cases:
(i) While fighting Jihad in the Cause of Allah.
(ii) To conciliate between people.
(iii) For the husband to please his wife and the wife to please her husband.
Muslims believe the account of Muhammad being the last and final prophet of mankind and that Islam must supersede all religions. They believe that the Quran is the sacred word of Allah that must be observed by all people. It is this belief that keeps devout and religiously observant Muslims in a perpetual jihad (struggle/Holy War) against each and every non-Muslim society until Islam eventually prevails “…ideologically over every other religion…” (Quran 9:33)
“And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.” (Quran 2:193, Shakir)
Islam is at war with Western Civilization and specifically with America and our nation’s Judeo-Christian faith. This is summed up in the mission statement issued by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1991:
An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America
“The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions…” 10

10 An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America
Mike Ramirez is a former broadcast journalist, news director and station manager. He has worked with ABC, NBC, Spanish International Network, and Telemundo affiliates and has also been a religion analyst in Christian Apologetics since the mid 1970s. The events of 9/11 led Mike to become involved in national security efforts to warn and inform America’s faithful that Islam is not a “sister-religion” to Judeo-Christianity, as widely believed, and that Interfaith Dialogue and Building Bridges events have opened the door to allow deception in churches and synagogues throughout the nation.
