All the terrorist activities across the world that are attempted to be equated with Islam, including the recent slaughter on a military base in America, are the products of the Darwinist, Leninist, Stalinist and Marxist mindset. Those who perpetrate such massacres have absolutely nothing to do with Islam. These people have received a Darwinist and Marxist education in Europe or America and are rooted in Leninism and Stalinism. Since conflict represents the basis of the philosophy in which someone with a Marxist, Leninist and Darwinist mindset believes, since they regard the people killed as mere animals and also believe that these need to be eliminated according to natural selection, it is perfectly normal for those with such a mindset to carry out such massacres.
Those who seek to ascribe such massacres to Islam are the heretical atheist masonic groupings that wish to cause divisions between Muslims and Christians in particular and seek to weaken the truly devout and give rise to oppression, conflict and war across the globe. Atheist freemasons, representatives of the systems of the antichrist (dajjal), seek to totally misrepresent Islam, a religion of peace and love, and thus ensure that people hold prejudiced views of it. The fact is, however, that unjustified killing is a sin in Islam. Our Lord makes this absolutely clear in the Qur’an:
So We decreed for the tribe of Israel that if someone kills another person – unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the Earth – it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. Our messengers came to them with clear signs but even after that many of them committed outrages in the Earth. (Surat Al-Ma’ida, 32)
Those who do not call on any other deity together with Allah and do not kill anyone Allah has made inviolate, except with the right to do so, and do not fornicate; anyone who does that will receive an evil punishment. (Surat al-Furqan, 68)
Allah reveals that it is as sinful to kill one person as to kill all mankind. There is no question of someone who maintains the bounds set by Allah of harming a single person, let alone slaughtering thousands of innocent individuals.
In addition, under Islam nobody can arbitrarily distinguish between those who do “right” or “wrong.” Because this distinction is clearly set out by way of the Qur’an. As revealed in the Qur’an, there can be no aggression in Islam, only self-defense. A Muslim can only resist aggression for purposes of defense, in the event of a threat to himself or those around him. According to Islam, only under such circumstances do people have a “right to attack” the other side, and then for purely defensive purposes. But if the other side ceases its aggression, then they must also put a stop to their defensive actions. Allah makes this a definitive pronouncement in the Qur’an:
“Fight in the Way of Allah against those who fight you, but do not go beyond the limits. Allah does not love those who go beyond the limits.
… Do not fight them in the Masjid al-Haram until they fight you there. But if they do fight you, then kill them. That is how the kuffar should be repaid. But if they cease, Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surat al-Baqara, 190-192)
Those who imagine they can escape punishment by fleeing from justice in this world will never be able to avoid having to account for themselves after death, in the presence of Allah, in the Hereafter. Therefore, true Muslims who know that they will have to account for their actions once they are dead are punctilious when it comes to maintaining the bounds set by Allah. It is impossible for a genuine, devout Muslim to harm people or perpetrate mass slaughter, things made sinful by Allah, or to harm them in any way by turning his back on such virtues as love, affection and forgiveness, which constitute the very essence of Islam. The mindset that seeks to ascribe terrorist attacks to Islam is the Darwinist, Marxist, materialist mindset that wishes to lead the world to irreligion. Atheist freemasonry, the system of the antichrist, has undertaken to defend this mindset. But, by the leave of Allah, this cunning strategy of the antichrist has been exposed and defeated in recent times when the coming of the Prophet Jesus (as) and Hazrat Mahdi (as) is imminent. Atheist freemasonry, the system of the antichrist, is no longer able to deceive people as it used to, and all this heretical mindset’s vile plots against Islam and true believer end in failure.
From Adnan Oktar’s interview dated 6 November, 2009:
ADNAN OKTAR: There is no terror in Islam, just people of Muslim origins who have been brought up as Darwinist materialists and terrorists. For example, someone may have Turkish origins and his ID card may describe him as Turkish, yet he may still be an enemy of Turkishness. Like the alleged organization Ergenekon organization. But his ID card says he is a Turk. It may say he is a Muslim, though that does not necessarily make him one. In order to be a Muslim he must be affectionate, compassionate, forgiving, tolerant and humane. Compassion does not mean ignoring the offenses committed by someone, by the way, but rather forgiving such offenses. Therefore, if you look at all the people responsible for what is known as Islamic terror, all the terrorist attacks in the world, you will see that they have all received a Darwinist education. They have all adopted a Darwinist, materialist and Marxist line. They are all great admirers of Che or of Ho Chi Minh. In other words, they are all people who have been raised hand in glove with terrorism. As a result, Palestine and Syria have only just been freed from communist thinking. Iraq has only just been freed from it. They all used to hold Stalinist, terrorist ideas. The old tools are therefore still being used today. Terrorists are people produced by those old tools.
ADNAN OKTAR: Look, the leaders of the people who perpetrate actions of this kind have all been brought up in Europe or America. They have all gone through an intensively Darwinist education. They have all adopted Marxist, Leninist and Stalinist thinking and strive to ascribe these things to Islam. They even called such people green communists at one time, Muslims with a great admiration for communism. But Islam is a pure faith. It is an unsullied faith, and nothing can subsequently be added to it. Whatever exists in Islam already does so, and nothing can be added on afterwards.
ADNAN OKTAR: The aim behind these Marxists’ terror is to create a division between Muslims and Christians and set them against one another, and to install an atheist masonic, Marxist system to fill that gap. Because the idea of thesis, antithesis and synthesis is one espoused by both Marx and Darwin. Darwin espoused the dialectic of living things. One lot espoused the dialectic of history. And others, the dialectic of nature. Put the three together and you have Marxist dialectics. The idea of conflict is inherent in that, the idea that people can only attain perfection through conflict. Conflict is an essential attribute of Marxists. They say that even if you have Marxism, its antithesis will still arise, and a new synthesis, that it will give rise to its own antithesis. They say that conflict is a feature of the permanent world. Terror is essential for that to be made a reality. This is a most devilish plan. A Marxist, atheist masonic plan that would be very successful were it really put into action. But I have thwarted all these plans. They are doing what Darwinist, Marxist theory requires. But by demolishing Darwinism and showing people that it is all a plot, I am thwarting the attempt to set Muslims and Christians against one another.
ADNAN OKTAR: While being injected with Marxism, nobody will ever become a Marxist if they come right out and say, “You will just go out and kill people.” Of course it will be given a humane appearance. The mask must be one that has a very positive impact on the human soul and character. In that event, people may then look favorably on it. But there is also the theory of conflict in Marxism. What does the theory of conflict mean? What does the constant operation of theses and antithesis mean? It means there will be constant bloodshed. They talk about the dictatorship of the proletariat, and that means blood, tears and suffering. But they say there will always be counter-theses to this. And the antithesis to that is fascism. They speak of fascism conflicting with communism and of there being a new synthesis emerging from this, and that a new antithesis to that will then emerge. In other words, they refer to endless disorder and anarchy. They say this a global law and base it on Darwin’s theory of evolution. The dialectic of nature, of living things, of history. Someone who believes that has no other option that to be a Marxist, and they are very insincere. Someone who is a Darwinist has no option other than to be a Marxist. If the dialectic of living things is true, then according to their belief the dialectic of nature and history is also true. And there is also dialectical philosophy. People who believe in dialectical philosophy must also sign up to conflict. In other words, they must sign up to thesis and antithesis. They must therefore also accept terror and anarchy. That is why Lenin told people to “bomb banks, kill the police, kill soldiers and rob banks.” That is why he wanted it. He was saying that people need to engage in such a struggle in order to attain the thesis, antithesis and synthesis.
ADNAN OKTAR: This is a devilish ruse. There can be no terror in the name of Islam. Because killing is forbidden in Islam. There is no compulsion in the religion. That is also forbidden. Compulsion is forbidden. I am a mujahid, waging jihad. The word jihad comes from the word ‘jehd,’ meaning to strive. What they are doing is slaughter. The Qur’an does not talk of slaughter. The Qur’an refers to ‘jehd,’ the jihad, spreading the religion and telling people about it. Our Prophet (saas) described the religion by proving it with love, affection and compassion. The religion is made available, and people either sign up to it or not. If you impose it on people then the result is hypocrisy. Do you know what hypocrisy means? You give rise to the most vile people in the world. Hypocrisy is many, many times worse than disbelief.
PRESENTER: Is killing on behalf of the religion legitimate?
ADNAN OKTAR: You can defend yourself for the sake of the religion. If they come to your home and try to kill you and your children. That is self-defense. Of course you will defend yourself in that case. But Allah tells us to go no further. He tells us to respond proportionately and then stop. He tells us to stop when they do. He tells us to stop when they halt their attack. He tells us to go no further.
