“They are trying to invent falsely a linkage to a caliphate, a link to our history in Islam that has no truth or bearing to our history.” – His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan, March 1st, 2015
“This is our war, this is not the West’s war. We are the spearheads of this war…and I repeat now, this is definitely not the US’s war, this is our war…” – Jordanian Interior Minister Hussein Majali, Feb 6th, 2015
I am sorry CNN but no, “Moderate Muslims” cannot and should not do more to oppose ISIS. Why? Because the problem is precisely that: “Islamic” vigalantism. We cannot and will not oppose Daesh as a vigalante force.
It is the job of governments and armies to fight and destroy them. The entire issue of “jihadism” stems from the fallacy of “Islamic” vigalantism pioneered by the CIA during the Afghan war.
If the Afghans wanted to fight “jihad” against the Communists, the first requirement in the Shariah was for them to reinstall their monarchy which was abolished by the Communists. This is why Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘aziz told the exiled Afghan King HM Zahir Shah in person, “…those people in your country who claim to be ‘Alims (religious scholars) are liars. I will come against them on the Day of Resurrection, because they have caused thousands of people to be killed without any reason. This is not happening for the sake of Allah.”
If the Arabs are to legally fight and take up arms against Daesh, they need a guarantee of martyrdom. For that, in Syria, and Iraq were these devils have both hatched and been planted, Arabs must restore their monarchies.
Alternatively, Syria and Iraq can become part of a Greater Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as proposed by Maher Abu Tair, a columnist with a Jordanian government owned newspaper, who wrote an article titled, “A New Arab Kingdom with Amman as its Capital.” He argued that Jordan should expand its kingdom to the Sunni parts of western Iraq and southern Syria and the West Bank.
We should learn from our mistakes, not repeat them all over again. Juristicially, war can only be waged by established and recognized governments. There is no debate in the Middle East, as the Great Arab Revolt demonstrated in the past, that other than the historic Al Hashimi Dynasty of Mecca, no other royal family in Arab history can take responsibility for both leading the hearts of the Arab world in war and take responsibility for their salvation after death if killed in such wars.
