Who are Muslims?

Reader comment on item: When Sunni and Shiite Extremists Make War

Submitted by Bart Benschop (Australia), Jun 8, 2013 at 08:18

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

Islam is submission to the law of Allah. A Muslim is someone who submits.There is no such thing as a radical Muslim or a civilian Muslim. Muslims under Al Shari'ia have an obligation to conduct Jihad, That is not that every Muslim must get directly involved with the fighting, but means that those Muslims who are not fighting must aid and support the fighting. Any Muslim who fails to aid and support Jihad are blasphemers and are no longer Muslim. This means that all Muslims in the Syrian uprising are guilty. The only aid given by non Muslims is is to the non Muslims in Syria who are the only victims in this issue,

Kind regards,

Bart Benschop.
