Was Sami Osmakac following true Islam?

By Ted Shoebat

Just very recently a Yugoslavian Muslim by the name of Sami Osmakac, was charged for conspiring to slaughter Americans in Tampa Bay, Florida, by destroying nightclubs and a Sherif’s office. Osmakac had filmed himself speaking of his future plan of mass slaughter, in which he made clear his belief that the blood of Muslims was superior to that of non-Muslims. The Globe and Mail reported that Osmakac was “plotting a radical Islamic attack”, but what needs to be acknowledged is that this terrorist’s sentiments are not seperated from Islam, but are true to the teachings of Islam. Within the dogma of Islam, we find that Muhammad, the founder of the religion, upheld a superiority complex in that those who denied his prophethood, deserved to be enslaved; their rights to liberty, private property, and the pursuit of happiness, seized by the tyrants.

Those of the Ummah, or Islamic Community, are apart of a collective body, and those who are not, are viewed as deserving despotic infliction. In short, Muhammad’s view’s on society upholds a socialist utopia in which one must be apart of the Islamic body, or perish or suffer enslavement. “To declare brotherhood among the individuals of any society”, says Mustafa al-Sibai an Islamic authority, “necessitates al-takaful [interdependence] among them, not only in eating, drinking and bodily needs but also in every other necessity of life. The acknowledgment of brotherhood between two persons is an acknowledgment of al-takaful and al-tadamun (solidarity) between them in sentiments and feelings, in demands and needs, and in status and dignity. This is the truth of al-takaful al-ijtimai in Islamic socialism.” (1)

Despite having some differences, Marxism and Islamism have many similarities. Marxism upholds a universal utopia in which the poor ‘have-nots’ clean the coffers of the rich ‘haves.’ Islam’s universal Ummah has dissident wealthy Jewish communities and Christian nations taxed with Jizya by the Muslim-have-nots.

Both systems have a disdain for the Church, which is the main target for their hatred. After the Bolsheviks took over Russia, Vladimir Lenin stole all of the land owned by the nobility and the church, and gave it to the have-nots. The land was stolen “for the benefit of the community” and was “to be distributed in equal shares.” The private ownership of land was to be “abolished forever.” (2)

Similarly, when the Muslims conquered Spain they took over Christian lands and destroyed their churches. Church property became under the control of the Ummah and thus Christians were forced to comply with the Pact of Umar that guaranteed the Islamic enforcement over Christian lands. In the document it reads: “We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood, new monasteries, Churches, convents, or monks’ cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.” (3)

The Ummah also demands that Jews and Christians pay Jizzya-poll-tax as income for the Muslims. The Muslim philosopher Al-Ghazali explains: “Jews, Christians, and Majians must pay the jizya [poll tax on non-Muslims]…on offering up the jizya, the dhimmi must hang his head while the official takes hold of his beard and hits [the dhimmi] on the protruberant bone beneath his ear [i.e., the mandible]… They are not permitted to ostentatiously display their wine or church bells…their houses may not be higher than the Muslim’s, no matter how low that is. The dhimmi may not ride an elegant horse or mule; he may ride a donkey only if the saddle[-work] is of wood. He may not walk on the good part of the road. They [the dhimmis] have to wear [an identifying] patch [on their clothing], even women, and even in the [public] baths…[dhimmis] must hold their tongue…” (4)

Furthermore, Osmakac is a Yugoslavian Muslim, and when one peruses the history of the Axis of evil, one finds such people had involvement with Hitler in massacring Christians, Jews, and Gypsies, within Islamic eastern Europe.

Haj Amin al-Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem in the early 20th century, had worked with the Nazis in a plan to exterminate the enemies of both Islam, and the Third Reich, within Islamic lands. “Germany”, wrote Hitler to his Muslim allies, “stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine…Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle…Germany’s objective [is]…solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere…In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world.” (5)

In 1943, the Mufti went to Yugoslavia, where he organized the Nazi/Islamic Hanjar division, Bosnian 23rd Waffen SS Kama Division, and the Albanian Skanderbeg 21st Waffen SS Division. It is because of such sinister conspiring and acts, that in 1945, Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his role in recruiting 20,000 Muslim volunteers for the SS, who participated in the killing of Jews in Croatia and Hungary. (6)

The history of Islamic cruelty from the Eastern Europeans who follow the religion of Muhammad, is soon connected to the occurrences which have happened in our time, and Osmacac is merely following the path which his predecessors walked before him; and it is such a path which we, as an intelligent people, must soon recognize. The ideas and aspirations of Osmacac are no mere products of a few fringe groups here and there, but they are apart of an entire system of religion and political ideology, which seeks to unite the world under a universal kingdom–-a kingdom which upholds not law, but lawlessness; not property, but the seize of property; and not life, but the destruction and enslaving of it.
