The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) is an organization dedicated to spreading Shar’ ia within our judicial system and encouraging Muslims in America to reject our Republic. The AMJA maintains an English and Arabic websites. Of course, when the AMJA posts something they do not want Americans to know about they do so on their Arabic site.

The AMJA issues fatwas or religious decisions which are to be followed by the Ummah. Recently, the AMJA was asked about Jihad here in America. The author of Translating Jihad (bio – translated the Arabic into English.

Here is the Arabic.

بعد التحية والسلام، هل الدعوة الإسلامية في بلاد الغرب كما هي اليوم تغني عن جهاد الطلب؟ شكرًا.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وعلى آله وصحبه ومن والاه، أما بعد:
لا تملك الأمة الآن القدرة على جهاد الطلب وغاية ما نتطلع إليه بإمكاناتنا الراهنة هو جهاد الدفع فيحسن الوقوف عند فقه هذه المرحلة، ولكل حادث حديث. والله تعالى أعلى وأعلم.

Here is the translation:
“The Islamic community does not possess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time. With our current capabilities, we are aspiring toward defensive jihad, and to improve our position with regards to jurisprudence at this stage. But there is a different discussion for each situation. Allah Almighty knows best.”

Notice two things. First, the AMJA believes in offensive jihad but not at this time only because the Muslim population in America is not strong enough. Therefore, the AMJA is claiming that Islam is in its American Meccan period.

Nevertheless, the AMJA claims they are aspiring to defensive jihad. But defensive jihad according to Shar’ ia is (1) where a Muslim protects a Muslim country or home and family from invaders or (2) attempts to retake Islamic lands which the Kafir have retaken. But America has never been in Islamic hands like Israel. Or has it? At the moment there is an ever increasing cry among Islamic scholars and groups which claims that Muslims found America first. If so, since the American land is controlled by Kafir, the Muslim world must rise up and take the land back.

Either way, these Muslims who live in America are calling for the political and religious overthrow of our Republic.
