  16. The War without End “We shall never call for or accept a negotiated peace. We shall only accept war - Jihad - the holy war. We resolve to drench the lands of Palestine and Arabia with the blood of the infidels or to accept martyrdom for the glory of Allah.” Abdul`Azīz Āl Sa`ūd (1876-1953) 1st King of Saudi Arabia

  17. A War without End “Based upon Islamic scholars' writings, violent jihad is permitted in Islam for both offensive and defensive purposes. It was commanded by, and praised by, Muhammad as being one of the greatest forms of true Islamic spirituality.  It is to continue until all people are subjected to Islamic rule.” “Silas” Answering Islam – A Christian Muslim Dialog

  18. The Root of Jihad Culture of Death

  19. Culture of Life • The Judeo-Christian ethic which has shaped the entire Western world supports a culture of life. • Death is an enemy to be fought against. • Living things (including human beings) are hardwired for life. • Jihadists deny their own hardwiring in favor of a culture of death.

  20. Culture of Death “We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.” Golda Meir, 1977

  40. Tactical Peace “The late Professor Majid Khadduri, from Johns Hopkins University, considered the world’s leading authority on Arab definitions of peace and war, noted that Arabs view peace as a tactical means for achieving their strategic objective – defeating the enemy.
