“In order for us to continue our jihad, we must embrace all possible approaches. As long as we maintain allegiance to Allah and work in his name, I am permitting our holy soldiers to publicly be men of other faiths.”
This marks a milestone in Islamic radicalism. For decades, terrorist groups have isolated themselves from other religions in order to stay true to their mission. With Abdul’s blessing, they are acknowledging that the end is more important than the means.
As a part of the new strategy, some previously used terms are going to be switched out with ones deemed more favorable. Along with the obvious such as preaching Jesus instead of Allah, jihad will now be referred to as the holy war. The mission is to have a “Christian nation.” Detailed objectives include belittling other religions, fighting secularism, protecting the sanctity of marriage, and standardizing prayers in school and in oaths for public office.
“The transition was a lot easier than we expected. With one search on the internet, we found as many hateful passages in the Bible as you would find in the Koran that could be used to justify our actions,” said Mohammed, whose real identity wasn’t disclosed. “I guess the important part was having the fire inside us after decades of being political pawns and having our communities bombed.”
