On Thursday, the Detroit Free Press posted an article about Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, also known as the underwear bomber, who has asked to be released from prison because, as he states, “all Muslims should only be ruled by the law of the Quran.” That is a very interesting statement when you look at it.
The article reports:
Abdulmutallab, who has insisted on representing himself, is scheduled to go to trial Oct. 4 on charges he tried to blow up a passenger airliner with 279 passengers and 11 crew members on Christmas Day 2009 with a bomb in his underwear.
Authorities have said that Abdulmutallab is an al-Qaida operative trained in Yemen for the suicide mission, which was foiled when a passenger subdued Abdulmutallab. He is facing numerous criminal charges, including conspiracy to commit terrorism.
One of the tenets of the law of the Quran is jihad. The Hadiths (sayings of Mohammed) and interpretations of the Quran command Muslims to carry out jihad until all of the Dar al-Harb (the House of War, where shariah law is not enforced) is brought under the domination of Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam, where shariah law is enforced). In other words, Abdulmutallab was obeying shariah law when he tried to blow up that airplane. Under shariah law, he is not only not guilty of a crime, he is to be commended.
It will be interesting to watch this case unfold. What was needed here was the military trial of a terrorist. This man is a soldier in the war against the infidels. Unfortunately, under the Obama administration, he will be tried in a civilian court.
