For readers who are not familiar with Ms. Ali’s life story, for years she has been targeted for assassination in The Netherlands – for speaking out against Islam. You can find her books and a brief biographical sketch on Amazon by clicking here.
Megyn Kelly frames her first question around the “radicalization” of a Muslim. That term confuses people in the Western World. What Ms. Kelly calls “radicalization” is simply the decision any Muslim reaches to obey the Quran’s command from Allah, delivered by and through Islam’s prophet Muhammad, to wage holy war (jihad) against non-Muslims (Infidels) – and kill them.
The decision can be made in a quick moment, or it can be reached over a period of some time – perhaps days, months or years. There is no way to predict when any Muslim, male or female, no matter how peaceful he or she may be, will arrive at that decision. But, the Quranic command to wage violent jihad against non-Muslims is ever-present and it is eternal.
One of the questions posed during the brief segment goes to how a Muslim mother could possibly abandon her baby and sacrifice her own life in the commission of an act of violent jihad, as happened recently in San Bernardino, California. One can discern the urgency in Ms. Ali’s presentation as she quite eloquently describes her frustration after years of trying to get Westerners to comprehend the intensity and depth of belief in Muslims’ minds when they answer the Quranic call to wage jihad against Infidels.
To Muslims who give up everything in this life to fight and kill Infidels, Allah promises by and through the Quran great rewards in the hereafter, far surpassing worldly possessions and commitments.
Finally, there is really nothing “radical” about reaching that decision to commit an act of violent jihad. Jihad is and has always been a mainstream institution of Islam.
