Jihad is not a Perversion of Islam, it IS Islam
Bill O’Reilly, Fox Superstar could not express more ignorance than when he was so insistent that he was right he shut down a psychiatrist disagreeing with him and stated: “Spiritualism falls a part in the face of the jihad. OK. Which is a perversion of Islam. We all know that.”
O’Reilly needs to put his thinking cap on and take his foot out of his mouth. The term Jihad according to Webster-dictionary.net means:
Calling jihad a perversion of Islam is nothing but a demonstrative show that Bill O’Reilly is incredibly ignorant of Islam, or has succumbed to Civilization Jihad. Jihadists claim they are dying for Islam. They have the exact same beliefs as those Muslims who attend Jumma prayers each Friday at their local mosques.
How do we know this to be true versus Bill O’Reilly’s foolish belief that Jihad is a perversion of Islam?
Tarek Fatah pointed out on January 10, 2015 that “[there] is a specific ritual prayer uttered by most Mosque Imams just prior to the formal Friday prayer we Muslims refer to as the Juma’a. In the prayer, the clerics ask Allah among other things to give victory to Muslims over the ‘Qawm al-Kafirun,’ the Arabic phrase that lumps all non-Muslims, that is Jews, Hindus, Christians, Atheists, Buddhists and Sikhs into one.”
“I was hoping this particular prayer would not be uttered on the day Islamist Jihadi Terrorists killed four Jews in Paris in the name of Islam and just two days after the Charlie Hebdo massacre,” Fatah added. “To my disappointment, there was no such thoughtful omission at the downtown Toronto Masjid run by the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Association of Canada. Far from being solemn and condemn the acts of terror, Imam Abdool Hamid showed no sense of humility or humbleness, remarking in English how he wished Islam “will become established in the land over all other religions, although the ‘Disbelievers’ (Jews, Christians, Hindus and Atheists) hate that.”
“I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship but Allah. He is one and has no partner, and I also bear witness that Muhammad (PBUH) is the Servant and Messenger of Allah, whom Allah sent with the ‘Religion of Truth’ [Islam] and with Guidance so that this Truth and this Guidance [Islam] will become established in the land over all other religions, although the ‘Disbelievers’ (Jews, Christians, Hindus and Atheists) hate that.”
“Later on he would repeat the ritual praying to Allah to grant Muslims victory over Non-Muslims.”
Tarek Fatah even translated a part of Iman Abdool Hamid’s Arabic sermon into English:
O Allah give victory to our Brothers. The Muslims, the oppressed, the tyrannized and the ‘Mujahideen’ [those who fight the Jihad] around the world.
O Allah, pour patience, upon Muslims strengthen their feet and give them victory over Non-Muslims (qawm el Kafirooon).
O’Reilly’s ignorance on jihad being a part of Islam is confounded further by textbooks used in Islamic schools in America. What Islam is All About by Yahiya Emerick, is an Islamic textbook written for grade 7. This text explains the justification for jihad and who it is required of.
…the goal of a physical Jihad is not to have a big war, gain riches or kill people, it is to further the cause of Allah and to create justice on Earth. Then when the evil is removed, or the other side wants peace, we are to make peace as well…
A physical Jihad may oly be initiated for three reasons: 1) To defend the Muslim community against aggression. 2) To eliminate an evil force which is oppressing people. And 3) To remove any barrier to the free flow of Islamic da’wah….
A person who is engaged in Jihad is called a Mujahid, or Struggler for Allah… (page 164)
So, Bill O’Reilly if they teach this in Islamic private schools across the country, do you need to stand up be a man and say those all important 3 words that respectable honorable men say when they make a mistake? I was wrong.
Own up to it O’Reilly, that you said something wrong or you become a major media assentor to misinformation on Islam!

“Tide goes in, tide goes out- you can’t explain that”
How can you expect such an ignoramus to know ANYTHING about Islam??

Jim, we have to be patient and try to dialog with the people who right or wrong have a big voice. Even liberals can be reasoned with. Getting them to read the koran (particularly sura’s 2,3,8.9) can be a good start – so can reading the hadith, the history of Islam or just opening up a newspaper
Jim Fox / August 31, 2015
You are right- but it is so hard being patient with twerps like O’Reilly, who has huge public exposure and influence, yet doesn’t know that the Moon’s gravity is what causes Earth’s tides.
WHY did the interviewee not explain this to Bill- on TV?? I suppose like most of us he was too ‘gobsmacked’ that Bill truly didn’t know?
Islam- 100% agree. We also need to explain how and why Muslims are able to accept that True=False and Black=White, IF the Koran says so…

Bill O’Reilly clearly made a fool of himself.

BILL OREILLY is a PIN HEAD

Bush had said “Islam is a religion of peace”. Not all conservatives get it yet, in the same way, took a deep strike into Poland and France for people to “get” Hitler. Those of us who have studied and understand the problem need to help get the people in the media to rethink falsehoods we all learned like “all religions want peace” There are nazi’s of this age, step one is to help others understand them

For someone who says he relies on facts, that was a stupid thing to say. If he, Bill O’Reilly, is stupid enough to think that helps he is wrong. And is doing his public a huge wrong by not telling the truth(which I think he knows)and he should tell the truth, and suck up whatever flack he might get.
I think his ego is in his way. Clearly, he should put his country before that.

The greasy leprechaun has been a non factor for years now. Just another fallen FOX News talking point loser. I’m a true conservative and I’ve stopped watching FOX now almost completely. They are so disgustingly PC and have their heads up the sphincters of the RINO establishment. The worst – Hannity. Followed my Kelley and O’Reilly.

Silly man. Oh, sorry to be redundant. Why do you think the Koran instructs Muslims to kill non Muslims or Muslims who are not jihadists ? As the bodies piled up the world was assured that Hitler was not a bad guy and this was not happening.

You are calling Bill O’Reilly stupid and you used Merriam Webster’s dictionary to define an Arabic word…? And Iconoclast73 there are still 110 other chapters… You want to understand what Islam, go to ww.alislam.org
