The Caliphate Will Establish "Central Command"

Reader comment on item: Academic Malfeasance: Another Mangling of Views about Islam
in response to reader comment: Not just the Muslim Brotherhood but also Tablighees from India/Pakistan

I appreciate your comments and agree that, no doubt, the Tablighees are just as much a major threat. However, we still have the overall Islamic goal to form the Caliphate, as in the Ottoman days when there was a central command of Islamic rule. All of the present-day Islamic sects and "splinter groups," whether Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Ismaili, Taliban, Boko Haram, Hezbullah, etc. will eventually come to an agreement to submit in unity for the cause of "Allah." The example of the Hadith that you cited specifically states as follows:
"The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: I am commanded to fight with men till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Apostle, face our qiblah (direction of prayer), eat what we slaughter, and pray like us. When they do that, their life and property are unlawful for us except what is due to them. They will have the same rights as the Muslims have, and have the same responsibilities as the Muslims have." (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 14, Number 2635, Narrated Anas ibn Malik)

Hmmm...sure sounds like Muhammad wanted to achieve World Conquest and this is the ultimate goal that all Muslims agree upon.

As far as "Moderate Muslims," Turkey's PM, Recep Erdogan, reportedly has stated, "The term moderate Islam is ugly and offensive. There is no moderate Islam. Islam is Islam." Additionally, I know and appreciate that you are very well versed in what is taught in the Qur'an, Ahadith and Sunnah and I think you can also agree that Muhammad was NOT a "moderate." Thus, as moderate Muslims attempt to "reform" Islam, they will need to do a lot of abrogating with deletions and revisions to the fundamental tenets of Muhammad's Islam. I don't see that being very successful, as much as they and we wish it could be. I do see the possibility that Erdogan may eventually be the one to unite the Islamic world and rule the "Islamic Central Command" from Turkey.

In regard to the Muslim Brotherhood: Since 1991, their "mission statement" has already stated that its destined goal is to destroy America from within by their hands and even by the hands of Americans (politicians, media, liberals and Inter-faith groups) who are sympathetic to the Palestinian issue and are against Israel. For that reason, the Muslim Brotherhood should be designated as not just a foreign but also a domestic enemy. You can read a petition urging Congress and the President to pass the Muslim Brotherhood Designation Act of 2017 at http://www.Starman3000.com
