yyah(Ignorance) that you are after?

And who is better than Allah

(Subhaanu waTaalaa) as judgefor people who are certain of the
Hereafter? At the time of the
Prophet (sallallahu alayhewas-
sallam), the Taghoot con-
trolled some aspects of life
such as trade and religious
routes. But the Taghoot of
today control you socially,
economically, financially, spiri-
tually, nationally, internation-
ally; theres no aspect of your
life, which they have not domi-
nated. They have made you
subservient to them: your water, electricity, passport; they issue
Visas to whomthey want to and control your coming in and going
out. Whereas, in the time of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhewas-
sallam) they could go wherever they pleased and whenever they w
anted. They have even dumped upright and sincere Scholars in
prison and replaced themwith dodgy and insincere scholars and
pay themhigh wages to keep themquiet. So they even control
what you learn of Islam! They control what these so-called
Scholars deliver sermons about and they have placed sanctions.
They monitor Islamic education, activities and so on. They get
hypocritical scholars to write books about Islamand are watering
down Islamthrough it.
At the time of Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wassallam), Abu Bakr As
-Siddiq, Uthman ibn Affan and Abdur Rahmaan ibn Awf
(radiyallahu anhum) were wealthy and the kuffar threatened to
stop the trade routes unless they gave uptheir religion. Similarly,
today they have adapted the samemethod by threatening to cut off
salary if one does not speak what the kuffar want to hear. Dont
entertain the ideathat the Kafireen are different their hearts are
alike so the Kafireen during the time
of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhewas-
sallam) are the same as those of today.
They use to bury baby girls back in
the time of the Prophet (sallallahu
alayhe wassallam) and we can see
that today e.g. in India.People make
statements that there are hundreds of
religions today but this is foolish-
ness there are only two religions
today: the right one and thewrong
one. Islamis the right one and the
rest are wrong. All the other religions
are all the same; they are all Kufr.
Lecture Given by Sheikh Abdullah Al-Faisal (H.A.)
(Continued from last weeks volume hear the lecture and
read the previous radical review online)
One of the implications of Taghoot (Kafir Governments, Idols) is
that one sets himself up as an enemy/ rival of Allah (Subhaanu wa
Taalaa) by dismantling the Shariah and implementing his satanic
laws - which also means systemand the systemof the Kafireen is
Taghoot such as America, and Britain. Allah(Subhaanu waTaalaa)
has made it incumbent upon us to love this Deen and love those who
follow the Deen and to hate the Taghoot and hate those that love
Taghoot. Allah (Subhaanu waTaalaa) says,
` ` ` ` ` `` ' `` `
` ` ` ` `` ` `
There is no compulsion in the Deen as truth stands clear fromfalse-
hood; anyone who rejects Taghoot and believes in Allah has indeed
hold fast to afirmgrip and (this grip) will never break! And Allah is
All-Hearing, All- Knowing. (al-Baqarah: 256)
Why does this ayah mention rejecting in Taghoot before believing in
Allah (Subhaanu wa Taalaa) second? SubhanAllah, Allah is al-
Hakeem(The All-Wise)!He is so Wise because He knows that most
Muslims find it extremely difficultto reject Taghoot look at how
many believe in socialism, patriotism,nationalism, democracy; we
have some sort of Taghoot in our hearts. Its easier to believe in Tag-
hoot than Allah (Subhaanu wa Taalaa), as Allah (Subhaanu wa-
Taalaa) mentions rejecting Taghoot first which implies to hate Tag-
hoot. Thus it is hypocritical for one to say you love Allah (Subhaanu
waTaalaa) and His Messenger (sallallahu alayhe wassallam) yet you
have love for the Kafireen that reject Allah (Subhaanu waTaalaa)
and you love their systemsas well.
Allah (Subhaanu waTaalaa) says,
` ` ` `` ` ` ` ` `
`` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
`` `
Have you seen those (hypocrites) who claimthat they believe in that
which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down
before you, and they wish to go for judgment (in their disputes) to
the Taghoot (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to
reject them. But Shaytaan wishes to lead themfar astray. (an-Nisa:
You have to reject faith in all these systems. Is it the systemof Jahili-

The Jews and Christians will never be content with you until you follow their Millah. (2: 120)
Monthly Op-EdBrother Yunus Abdullah Muhammad
There is an all too common phenomenathese days in the western Muslimcommunity: complacency with western, secular democracy
seems to have routed those who understand the only hope for Muslims is areturn to the shariah of their Lord. On the fringe, groups
like ours continue to exhaust countless hours of effort simply to be heard in our communities. The interpretation of ahlhus sunnah has
been ostracized and is strange for those living under contemporary imperialist efforts to maintain the full spectrumdominance of
American values across the globe. ImamShamsi Ali writes editorial posts calling the Muslims to Root out the Radicals (seeNY Post)
and HamzaYusef speaks in Britain about his love for Florence Nightingale as he cries for the British (http:/ /
watch?v=rR3XH48wWWw) while along the bottomof the screen the phone-in voting tallies scroll and ignorant bystanders in effect
eternally adopt an illogical view and disconfirmed syllogismthat democracy equals freedomand peace and that western societyisde-
mocratic, therefore the west equals freedomand peace. Imams in other communities have seemingly accepted the belief that they are
creating asort of American Islam, amadhab where the central tenets of democracy are synthesized with Quran and Sunnah in away
that sounds intriguing for those in the west and that in no way challenges the dominant opinion that free homosexuality, sex out of
wedlock, the theory of evolution, consumerismand the like are positive ingredients of modern society and that pacifismin the face of
oppression is ameans toward salvation and peace.
The establishment takes pride in these compromising presentations on behalf of democracy as good Muslims, different than bad
Muslims, are funded with grants and private philanthropic concessions much like African house slaves slept in the masters quarters and
Native Indians that taught and spoke English were awarded refuge during the holocausts of their people. These leaders may never un-
derstand this good Indian complex they are suffering frombecause they are too busy believing that compromise leads to peace. Their
condition is clearly explained in the Quran where Allah (SWT) says,
Those who turn back as apostates after Guidance was clearly shown to them; - the Evil One hasinstigated themand busied
themup with false hopes. This, because they said to those who hate what Allah has revealed, "We will obey you in part of
(this) matter"; but Allah knows their (inner) secrets. How (will it be) when the angels take their souls at death, and smite
their faces and their backs?This because they followed that which called forth the Wrath of Allah, and they hated Allahs
goodpleasure; so He made their deeds of no effect. (47:24-28)
The good pleasure of Allah is his shariah and the kufr here is due not to flat denial but to their turning to the disbelievers in even apart
of the matter. In his book LiesAcrossAmerica, James W. Loewen discusses the good Indian phenomenon. He says, To soften invasion
narratives, conquerors often highlighted the stories of natives who helped them. Americans might call these "Tonto figures" after the
Lone Ranger's famous sidekickthe archetypal "good Indian," always ready to help track down the "bad Indians" and outlaws who
menaced whites on the frontier. Similarly we may brandish contemporary Muslimvoices as hajjis the sidekick of Johnny Quest,
calling for participation in elections and thereby turning toward the rule of man and the greatest shirk for solutions to our problems.
Rather than refute the claims of these Muslimleaders that democratic participation is permissible, we shall analyze the probable poli-
cies of the presidential candidates and the probable effect their election will have on the general population. In the process it should be
clear that there is no candidate that will do abit of good for Islam.
John McCains key advisor is General Alexander Haig who oversaw the US policy of mass killing of civilians in Guatemala, El Salvador,
Nicaraguaand Honduras. Henry Kissinger advises and has endorsed McCain and Kissinger, of course, was responsible for countless
genocides. In the event he is elected, key influences will include Dick Cheney, Norman Podhoretz, Rumsfeld, Perle, Bolton and the
rest of the crew. With the conservative partys common declarations as the war party, (McCain turned an old Beach Boys Tune into
Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran) many Muslims turn toward the democratic candidates with their well-intentioned endorsement for de-
mocratic participation. However, as we shall see, this too will spell catastrophe.
Advisers to Hillary Clinton include many former top officials in her husbands administration: former Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright who justified the killing of 400,000 Iraqi children with economic sanctions on national television, former UN Ambassador
Richard Holbrooke who helped armSuharto and the Indonesian military, General Wesley Clark who ran the bombing of Serbiain the
former Yugoslaviaand who came out and publicly said that he was going after civilian targets, like electrical plants, like the TV station
Obamas top adviser is Zbigniew Brzezinski. Brzezinski has taken credit for funding the Taliban against Russia. When asked about the
consequences he replied, We were getting the Soviets, whats afew riled-up Muslims? His chief advisor is Anthony Lake. Lake, a
protg of Kissinger, blocked UN rescue efforts to prevent genocide in Rwandaand was the main force behind the US invasion of Haiti
in the mid-Clinton years during which they brought back Aristide essentially in political chains, and pledged to support aWorldBank/
IMF overhaul of the economy, which resulted in an increase in malnutrition deaths among Haitians and set the stage for the current
ongoing political disaster in Haiti. Another is Dennis Ross who has greatly influenced US policy toward Israel and Palestine. Hepushed
the principle that the legal rights of the Palestinians, the rights recognized under international law, must be subordinated to the needs
of the Israeli governmentin other words, their desires, their desires to expand to do whatever they want in the Occupied Territo-
ries, another Sarah Sewell wrote the introduction to General Petraeuss counterinsurgency handbook. Obamawill be even more
greatly influenced by his economic advisors who include Austan Goolsbee, aSkull and Bones member, Jeffrey Liebman of Harvard,
who wants to privatize social security and Felix Rohatyan who gutted New York City as abanker in the 1970s. Obamais intimately
connected to Wall Street and the corporate class. He offers aplanned liberal economic agendathat would pave the way for similar
policies to those of Mussolinis Italy: great collaborations between corporations and the nations infrastructure would privatize high-
ways and public services and have similar effects on Americaas IMF and World Bank privatization in the third world. Needless to say,
Democr at ic pipedr eams t he War on Isl am CONTINUESMARCH 2008
there is little distinction between candidates in regard to foreign policy and the most evident conclusion is that the indiscriminate kill-
ing of Muslimmen, women, and children will continue regardless of who the president is. Therefore, on the rational basis alone,
Muslims should cease to support any of themand call for Islamas ordered to themby their Creator.
The Jews, Christians, Secularists and Polytheists will never accept that Muslims live under Allahs commands. This is clear in the
Quran where we are informed of the consequences. Allah (SWT) says,
The Unbelievers are protectors, one of another: Unless ye do this, (protect each other and establish thekhilafah), there
would be tumult and oppression on earth, and great mischief. (8:73)
Compromise will earn the Muslims more defeat and working inside an absolutely corrupt systemwill do nothing to alter its course.
Regardless of the president, United States foreign policy has wreaked havoc across the globe. The result of American sponsored mili-
tary intervention in regard to protecting their control over resources and controlling the dominant paradigms of the world has
equaled, millions killed in Korea, Vietnamand Cambodia, 17,500 killed when Israel- invaded Lebanon in 1982, 200,000 Iraqis
killed in Operation Desert Storm, the thousands of Palestinians who have died fighting Israels occupation of the West Bank and the
millions who died, in Yugoslavia, Somalia, Haiti, Chile, Nicaragua, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Panama, at the handsof the
terrorists, dictators, and genocidists whomthe American government supported, trained, bankrolled and supplied with arms. And
this is far frombeing acomprehensive list. (Arundati Roy). This list includes the regimes of Democrats and Republicans alike.
In fact, there has been only afew consistencies in American foreign policy: Defense expenditures rise, intervention in the name of
freedomand democracy increases, and the ultimate goal of all politics and economics continues to serve agrowing robust congres-
sional-media-corporate-military-industrial complex that has grown so large it is hard to deny that it is the de facto controller of nearly
every decision in the country. Thereby government for the people by the people is actually government by afew of the peoplefor a
few of the people. No candidate can alter the systems that are in place and none have adesire to do so. The change that Americans
need is adrastic alteration of the foundational concepts that spur their society. The change that they will get no matter how you look
at it is an increasing discrepancy in wealth alongside increasing privatization and policies on behalf of the corporate elite.
The War on Terrorism, like American democracy, is ahoax as areal war on terrorismwould include the condemnation and subse-
quent lack of support by the US for Israels illegal occupation of the GazaStrip and the West Bank, its massacres of civilian Palestini-
ans, extra-judicial assassinations, expropriation of Palestinian lands, demolishing of houses, building of illegal Jewish settlements
alongside the discontinued support for imposed, corrupt dictators in the Muslimworld who are the real terrorists in the region. A
real war on terror would prevent the increasingly fascist-like dominant institutions frombuilding bombs where they should be nur-
turing better circumstances for millions of the oppressed and destitute that fill the lower 80 percent of the global population. None
of the presidential hopefuls will change these facts. Fundamentalist Islamnot only includes abelief in the right to defend ones self
against unjust violence and oppression but the right of all individuals to live in asociety where the basic necessities of lifeare affronted
to all and where peace and justice can truly survive. No secular systemoffers the fundamentalist practices of ordained charity, com-
munal prayer, respect for other faiths, and for private property alongside the privacy that atrue Islamic systemstimulates. The cause
of violence as retaliation for the gross terrorismof the West and the means that have been taken in defending Muslimblood and
honor over the past few years is not due to afanatical misinterpretation of Islam, it is due to the universal lack of respect for the sa-
cred tenets of Islam; peaceful tenets that are well worth defending. Allah (SWT) says,
And struggle against themuntil there is no more oppression and all the religion is for Allah (8:39)
Participating in Democracy is forbidden and will do nothing to reestablish justiceon Earth. All Muslims should separate
themselves fromthe political structure and work to establish the shariah wherever they are regardless of what the enemies of Islam
might say.
"And certainly, the Shayatin (devils) do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if
you obey them, then you would indeed be polytheists ." (6:121) It is recorded in regards to this ayat that it was revealed
when the polytheists tried to rationalize Allahs (SWT) command not to eat the meat of the animal that had fallen dead on its own.
The tafsir of Ibn Kathir explains that, As-Suddi said; "Some idolators said to the Muslims, `You claimthat you seek Allah's pleasure.
Yet, you do not eat what Allah causes to die, but you eat what you slaughter' and so Allah said, and if you obey them..., and eat
dead animals, then you would indeed be polytheists.Allah's statement, and if you obey them, then you would in-
deed be polytheists.means, when you turn away fromAllah's command and Legislation to the saying of anyone else, preferring
other than what Allah has said, then this constitutesShirk. Allah said in another Ayah, They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis
and their monks to be their lords besidesAllah.)[9:31] In explanation of this Ayah, At-Tirmidhi recorded that `Adi bin Hatimsaid,
"O Allah's Messenger! They did not worship them.'' TheProphet said, "Yes they did. They (monks and rabbis) allowed the imper-
missible for themand they prohibited the lawful for them, and they followed themin that. That was their worship of them. We use
these explanations as qiyaas in regard to the passive acceptance of the rationalizations of those calling for democracy to the way of the
disbelievers that control this society. We call solely for shariah and warn you with thebest of speech that compromising with disbe-
lievers has no place in Islamas Allah (SWT) says,
"And rule between them by that which Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware
that they may turn you away from some of what Allah has revealed." (Qur'an, 5:49)
"And whosoever does not rule by what Allah has revealed they are kaafiruun." (Qur'an, 5:44)
Therefore calls on those who have ears to hear and eyes to see to vote
not Obama but OSAMA in 2008.

On the surface they are different but in reality, they are all subservient to their hawaa1
To prove that this is abattle between Haqq and Baatil, we see that in Battle of Ahzaab,
the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wassallam) and companions were on oneside and the
Quraysh and all other Arab tribes were on the other,and in between these two armies
was a Khandaq2. The Arab tribes were at war with each other for years but in this bat-
tle they put their differences aside to fight together against the Muslims. Even Christian
Arabs were united at the battle. The Jews broke apeace treaty with Muslims to protect
Madinah fromattack; this tribe was called Banu Quraydah.
The hearts of the Kafireen are alike. Lets look at the Christians for amoment. The
Christians say they love Jesus and they love Jews over Muslims. But in the Talmud, the
Jews call Esa(alayhis salaam) and Maryam(alayhis salaam) awful names. Whereas
Muslims hold themboth in high honour; despite this they prefer Jews to Muslims. This
shows the evil of Christians and how deep and vehement is their hatred for Islamand
Muslims. There is no such thing as agood Christian, since they are all very hypocritical
when they claimlove for Jesus; their love is fake and their claimis false. If they were
good, they would have embraced Islamlike Negus of Ethiopiaupon hearing about Islam.
With Christians if you try to discuss with themabout trinity and you ask themhow can
Esa(alayhis salaam) call upon himself if he is God, they will reply that we cant under-
stand it as the Holy Ghost is within themand not within us. They come back with the
same arguments. The Jews and Christians are friends of each other; they are united and
work together to kill Muslims so their hearts are alike.

May Allah reward you all for taking out the time to read Radical Review Vol. II. We have been
through much since our establishment. Over the first two months of operation we have handed out
over 1,000 copies of Radical Review I, taped anew interview with our beloved Sheikh (available on-
line), demonstrated against Starbucks and on Millat Ibrahim, established aforumfor on-line commu-
nication, advanced our website and contributed to the dawa of Jamaica. Revolutionmus-
lim.blogspot.comalso offers news commentary and we are awaiting the arrival of our Sheikhs book
in print 100 Fabricated Hadith and his new DVD The Jamaican MuslimHome. Alas, we have also
suffered criticisms; we were kicked out of Masjid Taqwafor allegedly spreading violent ideologies
and have been criticized for the nature of our website and articles. The Zionist community lobbied
hard for godaddy.comto take down our site, but we are still up spreadingthe haqq and we forgive
those Muslimsthat criticizeus and will continue to work for Islam. I would like to take some time
to clarify the meaning of the world Radical. It seems that some have taken the title Radical Review
to imply that radicalismmeans to be utterly uncivilized and to call and preach violence. The term
Radical comes fromthe Latin radicalismeaning of or having roots and fromradixmeaning going to
the origin. Essentially that is what working for Islamis all about, getting back to the root of the mat-
ter, the Quran and the Sunnah and there was never agreater revolution in the history of man then
when small numbers of sahabacame out in Meccato preach Lailahail Allah to the pagan Meccan
society; this movement would eventually establish the greatest empire the world has ever known.
For lack of space, I will cease to expound further
but invite you all to communicate your ideas with
us freely. I leave you all with this, aquote from
Sayyid Qutbs Milestones,
Our first step will be to raise ourselves above the jahili
(ignorant) society and all its values and concepts. We will
not change our own values and concepts either more or less
to make a bargain with this jahili society. Never ! We and it
are on different roads, and if we take even one step in its
company, we will lose our goal entirely and lose our way as
RevolutionMuslim knows no compromise. The world is a prison for
us and we are strangers to it. Wont you join us soon!
