We now know more about the Orlando shooter and some of his history. Some said that he used the app Jack’d, Grindr, Even a co-worker said that he saw this coming a long time ago and tried to warn law enforcement
Once again, we see Salafiyyah figuring promptly in this matter. Now we have the same figure before, who admitted he worked with the government, being given a platform to speak on this and other matters.
In this video, this same mouthpiece for Salafiyyah continues on – with his lawyer at his side – with even a joke about beheading journalists to tease his viewing audience along with his own political asides on the electoral process in the United States (a woman should not be president because...”what if she’s on her menses and it’s time to go to war…is she going to press the button because she’s angry?”)
Salafiyyah continues to teach online unabated and undeterred. Kitab ut-Tawhid is in heavy circulation like normal. One of the late mouthpieces of Salafiyyah, Ibn Baz, makes it very clear that Salafiyyah or Wahhabiyyah are one and the same thing and that their leader is Muhammad ibn `Abdul Wahhab. Loyal devotees have painstakingly collected together his pontifications and put them on a hagiographical site for perpetuity.
accepting Salafiyyah and making excuses for it. This has left the layman in the terrible position to choose between this falsehood as actual Islam and revelation and the alternative; for understandable reasons, they are “rejecting Islam.” Anyone with a sober mind that examines Salafiyyah in detail will reject it outright.
It is for this reason I understand why people would seemingly reject Islam, when in actuality they are rejecting Salafiyyah. This cult is capable of morphing, which is a credit to its’ continued survival. Just look at how they have been able to distort the culture and people’s minds in the Chechen Republic.
Don’t you love the part near the end (man in khaki pants with metrosexual haircut:”Fix your scarf…!” beleaguered woman: “Where? What is it?”) that shows how “modern” and advanced it is in Chechnya now? I think my favourite was the cutaway showing men folklore dancing, the club playing Pink Floyd and then the ballet scene where the women said they couldn’t leave the country without their husbands’ permission.
Although a secular government, Salafiyyah used the middle ’90s to worm its’ way into the Chechen people’s lives and is now slowly spreading its’ tentacles over every aspect of the society. If women can’t secure driver’s licences in the next 3 years and you can’t study astronomy, don’t say you weren’t warned.
This is only one portion of the reality. If the Muslims in the Anglosphere do not stop watering down their faith and apologising for the falsehood in their midst, the Wrath of our Lord will come down and it may be the case that it is actualised at the hands of the populations in the host countries in which they live.
