The Hadith and questions concerning Islam.

I occasionally read other religious texts as a means to attempt an understanding of them. The Hadith in Islam is (generally speaking) a guide to the Qur'an. In one sense, it is like the Federalist Papers - a way of explaining the meaning of the book and its tenets. With that said, please read the following from the Hadith and explain to me how ISIS and other radical Islamic groups can justify the killing of non-combatants, women, children, and those unwilling to convert when the Hadith specifically prohibits it?

Chapter XIX Jihad

Qur'ân, i.e., a missionary effort to establish Islâm. We are further told that there should always be among Muslims a party who invite people to Islâm (v. 3). Thus the missionary jihâd of Islâm is to be carried on in all circumstances.

The sword could never be used to force Islâm on others. compulsion in religion being forbidden in clear words (v. 4). Fighting was undoubtedly allowed but it was expressly allowed only as a defensive measure against those who were bent upon annihilating Islâm by the sword, not to compel people to accept Islâm (vv. 5, 6). When persecution ceased and everyone was at liberty to profess whatever religion he liked, the sword had to be sheathed (v. 7). Even in the midst of the war, if the enemy wanted peace, war was to be discontinued

Non-combatants were not to be killed in battle, there being a prohibition against the killing of women and children (h. 16). Fighting was to cease if the enemy offered peace, even though his intention might be to deceive (v. 8), or if the enemy entered the brotherhood of Islâm (h. 17).

Labor And Business Can Agree On This: Congress Should Act On Immigration

Businesses and unions often disagree on public policy. But after the Supreme Court's tie vote on immigration Thursday, company executives and labor leaders united to call on Congress to settle the issue.

The high court's 4-4 deadlock means President Obama's plan to defer deportation for millions of workers who are in the country without visas has been blocked. A majority of justices would have been needed to overturn a lower court's ruling that Obama's plan was beyond the power of the executive branch.

But the Supreme Court stalemate did not establish a precedent, leaving the door open for lawmakers to step up.

Without the Obama policy on deportations in place and no comprehensive immigration plan completed by Congress, employers have been left confused about which workers might suddenly be deported.

It's really quite simple. You can't have open borders *and* a welfare state. Didn't we learn anything from the Brexit vote? Apparently, according to NPR ... No.


Just a bit of remedial instruction for certain posters here, the MSM, and Hillary.

The following are common "weapons of war" better known as ASSAULT weapons. The M249 is also known as a Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) and is carried as an individual weapon, not crew served. You'll note, Hillary, the MSM, and others here at DI, that NONE of these weapons were used in Orlando or at Sandy Hook. So, when you say ignorant things like assault weapons and automatic weapons, you really look and sound like complete tools.

Ludwig von Mises

A man who chooses between drinking a glass of milk and a glass of a solution of potassium cyanide does not choose between two beverages; he chooses between life and death. A society that chooses between capitalism and socialism does not choose between two social systems; it chooses between social cooperation and the disintegration of society. Socialism is not an alternative to capitalism; it is an alternative to any system under which men can live as human beings.

What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very very loud (comedy warning)

Except that it isn't. For those of us who *have* fired the AR-15, it is exactly the opposite of what this wussie describes. As far as recoil goes, you could literally fire one off of you forehead, and not be injured. If this little snowflake got a bruise from firing an AR-15, I wouldn't want to look at his little arm after sending twenty or so rounds of 00 buck through a twelve gauge.

He loves the AR-15 for cops, soldiers, hunters and target shooters. “It’s fun to shoot something like that,” he said.

Not in my hands. I’ve shot pistols before, but never something like an AR-15. Squeeze lightly on the trigger and the resulting explosion of firepower is humbling and deafening (even with ear protection).

The recoil bruised my shoulder. The brass shell casings disoriented me as they flew past my face. The smell of sulfur and destruction made me sick. The explosions — loud like a bomb — gave me a temporary case of PTSD. For at least an hour after firing the gun just a few times, I was anxious and irritable.

Even in semi-automatic mode, it is very simple to squeeze off two dozen rounds before you even know what has happened. In fully automatic mode, it doesn’t take any imagination to see dozens of bodies falling in front of your barrel.

NARRATIVE FAIL: Orlando Islamic Terrorist Did NOT Use An AR-15

The anti-gun politimedia wasted no time at all demonizing the most common rifle in the United States as being the real villain of the Islamic terrorist attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Newsweek screamed, “ORLANDO SHOOTING PUTS SPOTLIGHT ON AR-15 RIFLE.”

Judd Legume of Think Progress squeaked, “The NRA’s Love Affair With The AR-15, Weapon Of Choice For Mass Murderers, In 22 Tweets.”

... The rifle used by the Islamist terrorist in Orlando was instead a Sig Sauer MCX carbine, a modular, multi-caliber (able to swap to different calibers, including 5.56 NATO, 300 BLK, and 7.62×39) rifle system that sometimes utilizes STANAG magazines common to more than 60 different firearms, but otherwise has no major parts that interface with AR-15s in any way, shape or form.

It won't matter, they'll bray on about the AR-15 for a few more days at least.

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton joined at the hip with a convicted criminal.

Why am I not surprised?

Jeb Bush

Former Gov. Jeb Bush has agreed to return $270,000 out of $469,000 that he was paid as a consultant to Osorio.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Democratic National Committee

Osorio held fundraisers for 2008 presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in his Star Island mansion in Miami and The Democratic National Committee was also forced to return tens of thousands of dollars
