Mitzvah in Judaism means to help the poor and fight tyranny.

Jihad in Islam means to help the poor and fight tyranny. Hate sites attempt to paint Muhammad, David and Solomon as men of violence and crude misconduct. To Sergios point,certainly to each their own on Islamand any religion..... but dont talk down to me saying I am a troll as I do not talk to you in such a fashion.... No sir Islam like Judaism does not allow Sex Slaves ...that is the ISIL interpretation that says Islam allows sex slaves. To be crystal clear of course in Islam like Judaism plural marriage is allowed, but to that point certainly there is no discrimination allowed against women in Judaism and Islam. Islam derives its marriage and war laws from Judaism....a religion of honor and justice so no what ISIL does is not Islamic...here is the one of many Muslim cites fighting back against ISIL and anti Muslim bigotry showcasing the support for the points I have made itt...for the argument that proves Sergio and G david wrong.... Islam is like Judaism... is a religion of peace,

“Jihad against Violence”


Violence is a human phenomenon that exists across diverse cultures and faith communities. It remains an ever-present reality in the lives of millions of Muslims, preventing entire societies from flouishing in religious, cultural, political, and economic spheres. Throughout the world, violence destroys the ability of Muslim women to thrive within their families, communities, and nations. Violent extremism and domestic violence, in particular, continue to devastate individual lives, families and societies. This is a clear injustice to those who suffer such indignities, as well as a violation of the teachings of Islam, whose mantle is wrongly used to justify such violence.

“Jihad Against Violence: Muslim Women’s Struggle for Peace” is the first statement of the global Muslim women’s Shura Council, an all women’s advisory council that promotes women’s rights within an Islamic framework. A combined study and condemnation of violent extremism and domestic violence, “Jihad against Violence” addresses two critical issues that are typically assumed to be separate. Thus, the Shura Council is studying violence in its larger context, offering connections and links rarely made, and taking a stand against all types and manifestations of violence. Because of the tremendous import of violent extremism and its prominence within public discourses surrounding Islam, studying this topic – in tandem with domestic violence – will register a strong statement that women can pronounce on all societal issues, not merely those traditionally limited to them.

More wizzing into the wind.

Thanks for repeated insight to the Islamic Jihad dis-informational mind.

No positive rep for you.

CIA Station Chief Who Helped Hunt Bin Laden Scorches Obama Admin for What It Left Trump With in Middle East

EXCERPT:
...
“My point is," said Berntsen, "the battle in Syria and Iraq is a sectarian conflict between the Sunni and Shia. The Shia are led by Iran and are attempting to wipe out the Sunnis. And the Sunni powers [are] ISIS and the Nusra Front. They are large forces conducting terror on one another. But whether it's Iran's Quds Force or ISIS, both are monsters, and both are just as bad as the other.”

How did it come to this, and why does it matter?

Berntsen explained:
"We were beating the terrorists in Iraq, and then President Obama ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces. That decision in itself created a supersize sectarian conflict. Before, we were just fighting groups of terrorists. Now we are up against terrorist armies.

If you go back to the early days of Hezbollah, it had dozens of dozens of guys. They went from an organization of a small group to an organization that deployed a 15,000-strong expeditionary force into Syria. On top of that, they have a millions in drug proceeds.

How do we leverage forces on the ground for the maximum result in a terrible, terrible situation? It's really difficult. Trying to attack Raqqa, the ISIS capital, on one side. But you have to stay away from the Iranian military units, too. It's an ugly battlefield. And most of the people in the battle want to kill us."
“President Trump inherited a terrible situation," Berntsen said. "Obama lacked the basic understanding of the history of the U.S. in the Middle East. A significant point on all of this [was] when the U.S. economy came off the gold standard, we became a fiat currency. We were able to do that because the Saudis agreed to the petrol dollars deal, that all oil would be purchased with U.S. dollars. And this strengthened our currency.”

Berntsen continued by pointing out how the deal with Iran shattered the trust of the Saudis:
“When Obama played footsie with Iran, the Saudis were horrified by it. They recognize that his staff probably had no knowledge or understanding of the agreement, or what it meant.”
Berntsen laid into the former president for securing the release of four hostages in the Iran deal, but not DEA and FBI agent Robert Levinson, who has been held in the country since 2007. “He left Levinson. Levinson is alive. But he left him,” said Berntsen. “Richard Nixon ran into something similar in his presidency. Twenty years before he was elected, two CIA officers were shot down over China. But Nixon got them both released during his presidency.”
...
The CIA station chief painted the picture of just how big of a threat radical Islam remains. “People need to understand the scope of the challenge. There are 1.6 billion Muslims on this planet, and we are in conflict with the militant Islamists. Militant Islam is only 10% of the population, and that still makes 160 million. If it's only 1 percent that wants to fight us, that's still 16 million people,” said Berntsen.

“We have a nation of 320 million, with 2.5 million in the U.S. Armed Forces. Part of our strategy has to be leveraging our Islamic allies in that part of the world. We have to defeat these heretics that want to conduct a war on the planet. With McMaster, Mattis, and Kelly, veterans of war who understand these complex situations, Trump is way ahead of where President Obama was on these issues.”
