Citizen Warrior: Pretext for Hostilities in Islamic Thinking

Pretext For Hostilities In Islamic Thinking

by Citizen Warrior

I was listening to the excellent audiobook, Robert Spencer's Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades), and he was talking about how Muhammad's actions set precedents for what the Islamic Military does today. Muslims are told over seventy times in the Qur'an that they should use Muhammad as an example, and try to live their lives as Muhammad did. Spencer said:
"[At a particular battle Muhammad fought in,] another pattern was set...that played out across the centuries. Muslims would see any aggression as a pretext for revenge, regardless of whether they provoked it."
Jihadis around the world do the same thing today. They provoke a government or a group until they get a hostile reaction, and then they use that reaction as a pretext for aggression.
