Time for all to condemn Islamic State for their violence

The group's brand of extremism and atrocities against fellow Muslims in the name of Islam has only been condemned by two Muslim leaders, Dr Mahathir and Indonesian president Susilo Bambang. - Reuters pic, August 21, 2014.

Thus far, only two global Muslim leaders have come out to condemn the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) – or Islamic State (IS), as they call themselves now – for their violence and large-scale slaughter in both the Middle East countries.

Former Malaysian prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Dr Mahathir condemned the group four days ago, saying it has misinterpreted Islam which is a religion of peace.

“There is no place for violence in Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and some people have wrongly interpreted the religion,” Dr Mahathir told reporters after a youth forum in Putrajaya.

Yudhoyono today called the actions of IS militants “embarrassing” to the religion and urged Islamic leaders to unite in tackling extremism.

“It is shocking. It is becoming out of control,” he said in an interview with The Australian, a day after IS released a video showing a masked militant beheading US reporter James Foley, provoking worldwide revulsion.

“This is a new wake-up call to international leaders all over the world, including Islamic leaders,” he said, adding that the actions of IS were not only “embarrassing” to Islam but “humiliating”, the newspaper reported.

But other leaders, particularly Muslim leaders in Malaysia, have been quiet. Not a peep, not a word about a group that has killed more people, including Muslims, in the past year than any other group or even Israel in Gaza.

Yes, Israel must be condemned for its disproportionate use of force and violence in Gaza against Hamas. There is no defense for the occupying force that has killed more than 2,000 in this round of violence.

But the silence over IS is deafening.

The militant group, built on the remains of Al-Qaeda in 2013, have even issued an annual report for last year boasting it had 15,000 armed men that have carried out at least 10,000 terror attacks.

This year, it has become more violent, killing Muslims and Christians alike and this week, beheading a journalist.

Yet, not one word of condemnation from Muslim leaders in Malaysia.

No one except Dr Mahathir has come out to speak against the atrocities by IS.

Aren’t we the country that set up the Global Movement of Moderates? Shouldn’t our leaders condemn this outright now rather than keep silent?

As it is, Malaysian police have reported that a few militants have been procuring explosives for raids against breweries and other facilities. And one more Malaysian militant has been killed in Syria.

What are we waiting for? IS is doing a great disservice to Islam and Muslims around the world. We need to condemn them and anyone following their ideology. Now.

  1. Malaysian women are believed to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) forces to offer Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual jihad, senior intelligence officials told The Malaysian Insider. These women’s are just joining them so can sleep with more men and uncivilized lifestyle too. Whoever condone or support this acts should shame of them self and must be against any such true teaching of the religion.

    So from now on if any woman get caught for khalwat, can she say that she is training for sexual jihad and get away with it ?

    • Ajibkor gave credence to ISIS/ISIL and envy their fighting spirit so much so he asked umnoputra to learn their fighting skill of smaller group against the bigger nation like Iraq or Syria. Malaysians have been recruited and if these recruits don’t get killed over there in Iraq or Syria, they will come back to Bolehland battle hardened, ready to spread their ideology and sow terror. Already one Malaysian recruit had carried out a suicide bombing mission in Iraq. The biggest threat to the security and well being of Bolehland is Islamic extremism and militancy and not anybody else.

  4. If Islam really is a religion of peace, we wouldn’t need all the draconian gag laws and blasphemy laws and apostasy laws and censorship laws to stop us from telling the simple truth that Islam is a religion of peace of the grave.

    • True. Why no maaf-maafan from Umno folks?

    • Religion of peace? What peace when innocent journalist are slaughtered like chickens for dinner? When members of their own faith are being killed for not being of the same sect and some crazed white lady convert vowing to be the first to cut some infidel’s throat? Does the god of the religion if peace really condone unpeaceful means to treat and convert his own creation into following him? Why
      Have such verses as there is no compulsion in the holy book? Why the contradiction which makes for a confused believer like those isis devils!

      • Big Mo, the self-styled last and true messenger boy of Allah, made shit up in Allah’s name as he went to excuse his own actions, just like all the witchdoctor bomohs who made shit up as they went to con women into having sex with them. This deference to higher authority psychological manipulation is the oldest trick in the book. So of course the “holy book”, which is really just the nonsensical ravings of a bloodthirsty and sexually-depraved lunatic cult leader collected and arranged in chronological order, will be full of contradictions and logical holes. As for all that no compulsion business in the Hole-y Book, they are all cancelled by the concept of abrogation (later verses cancel earlier verses), but beardies use these meaningless cancelled verses in their propaganda jihad to confuse the despised inferior lower-than-dirt filthy najis kafir and to provide a fig leaf for real Islam, all to buy time for Islam to advance.
