Jawa Exclusive: The Early Writing of Samir Khan
While you may have heard about Samir Khan's Ignored Puzzle Pieces of Knowledge blog that made him famous. There is another blog, an even earlier blog that dates back as far as 2004.
MANKIND IS UNDER THE FALSE IMPRESSION THAT SECULAR MEANS WILL BRING ABOUT PEACE IN THE WORLD WHILE TOTALLY NEGLECTING THE TRUE SPIRITUALITY WHICH CAN ONLY BE BROUGHT ABOUT BY A PEOPLE WHO WILL WORK TO RE-ESTABLISH THE COMPLETE REVOLUTION BROUGHT ABOUT BY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM)!
What's important about this blog is is speaks to Samir's early influences which some have characterized as "moderate". But from the very earliest writing Samir had a taste for radical clerics and what one might call very fundamental Islam.
This is all recorded at one of Samir's early blogspot blogs titled Human Liberation - an Islamic Renaissance. This is the blog were we first noticed that Inshallahshaheed was indeed Samir Khan.
So who were Samir's early heros? The image above is of a Pakistani cleric who founded the Islamic group Tanzeem-e-Islami, Dr. Israr Ahmad, who once said...
The process of the revival of Islam in different parts of the world is real. A final showdown between the Muslim world and the non-Muslim world, which has been captured by the Jews, would soon take place. The Gulf War was just a rehearsal for the coming conflict...Global Calliphate, check. Final Holy War, check. Hates da Joooos, check.
Those are some moderate Islamic statements right there, I checked and yup that's moderate.
In a world in which one cannot afford to call Israel a racist state, where one cannot survive without recognizing its “legitimacy;, where anyone calling for Israel’s destruction is branded as a terrorist who deserves to be thrown into the concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, presenting an undeniable thesis of its destruction needs a lot of courage.He was also a big fan of Sayyid Qutb, who the liberal outlet NPR describes as the basis of al-Qaeda's ideology.
Like I said, a moderate. In fact Khan's writing was so radical in the context of the times that we at Jawa Report were immediately alarmed. His cold, calculated and quite logical explanations were moral justification and advocacy for genocide and holocaust despite the "moderate" feel of the language he chose to express it.
Like I said, "moderate Islam".
