Top Palestinian Religious Advisor to Abbas justifies the murder of innocents

Post by Didge on Sun Jul 31, 2016 3:05 pm

The Times of Israel met with Dr. Mahmoud Habbash, the supreme sharia judge in the Palestinian Authority and Abbas’s adviser on religious and Islamic affairs to answer the question, What exactly is a martyr?
The judge defined a martyr, or shahid in Arabic, as “anybody who has been killed in a war against non-Muslims.” He also said Palestinians are in an open “state of war” with the “Israeli occupation.” In the context of this state of war, he argued, any Palestinian killed as a result of it — whether directly or indirectly, whether an Israeli fundamentalist firebombed his home, or whether he attacked a soldier or a civilian, and yes, even if he was killed while stabbing to death a teenage Israeli girl in her bedroom as was the case of the murderer of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel last month — is a “victim” of the conflict because his actions were a product of it. And therefore, said Habbash, he is a shahid . . .
 
The Islamic tradition of martyrdom is mainly taken from the Hadith, a massive collection of sayings attributed to the Prophet Muhammad or his close companions. Each martyrdom-related Hadith expands on the concept. As this reporter has learned through many months of asking Palestinians what they think a martyr is, this much is clear: the concept of martyrdom is like a ball of yarn — the more you pull at it, the more it unravels. Habbash’s explanation of martyrdom as applicable to one who falls fighting non-Muslims is hardly the last word on the subject. For example, during the infighting between Hamas and Fatah in 2006-2007, each referred to only its own dead as martyrs. Even at Habbash’s level of scholarship, the concept demands fluidity.
So if I understand this correctly, Mahmoud Abbas’ top religious adviser says that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is indeed a religious conflict.

This is the problem I keep saying and by invoking martydom they make it about Islam.
Its no different from the views of ISIS.
The only difference is who is classed is guilty to have transgressed.
Now remember many Israeli's have been murdered in Israel and the parts that are within the pre-1967 areas.
That proves again they classify all of israel as in occupartion and refuse to accept its existance.
This not about settlements, this is emphatically driven and incited by Ismanic doctrine.
It proves they are not teaching or seeking peace, but preaching and justifying hate and murder, which has been occuring consistantly even before the creation of Israel in 1948

More from the article and more proof they do not and will not accept the state of Israel:



Habbash further asserted that the entire land of historic Palestine is Islamic waqf — an inalienable religious endowment for Muslims — including, as he has insisted, the Western Wall in Jerusalem, known to Muslims as the al-Buraq Wall. How can he say it all belongs to Muslims while also saying he believes Jews have a right to their own state in the land? To that he answered: the reality of waqf does not forbid Muslims to share their land.

But regarding the holiest site in Judaism, the Temple Mount — known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif — Habbash said the idea that ancient Jewish temples stood where the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem stands today is a myth.
Habbash was unfazed by a 1925 pamphlet on the Temple Mount produced by the Supreme Islamic Council, the body in charge of Muslim community affairs during the British Mandate in Palestine from 1920 to 1948, that states that the Temple Mount is indisputably the former site of Solomon’s temple. While he respects the Jews’ right to their own narrative, Habbash said, there is a “reality on the ground.” The Palestinians, he said, are only asking for the status quo to be preserved — meaning that only Muslims can pray there, but Jews can visit.



Picture of the first page from the 1925 Waqf pamphlet. In the second to last sentence of the second paragraph, one can read the words: “It’s identity with the site of Solomon’s temple is beyond dispute.” (courtesy: screen shot)
Pressed on this point — wasn’t it once the Waqf’s own narrative that Solomon’s temple was on the mount? — Habbash’s response, in short, was this: forget narratives and concentrate on the status quo. “Please, please, don’t push us against the wall” and make this a religious war, he said, in which Israel would find “two billion Muslims as well as two billion Christians against you.” This unveiled threat was delivered in the calmest, nicest way imaginable.
