UK Home Secretary Theresa May: Islamic State’s actions “have absolutely no basis in anything written in the Quran” : Jihad Watch

TheresaMayThe imam Theresa May weighs in on a question about which her fellow imams, Barack Obama, John Kerry, David Cameron, Philip Hammond, Tony Abbot et al, have already spoken — a veritable ulama of renowned Islamic authorities. Her fatwa echoes theirs: The Islamic State's "actions have absolutely no basis in anything written in the Quran. What they believe has no resemblance whatsoever to the beliefs of more than a billion Muslims all over the world." What do you bet that Theresa May has never opened a Qur'an in her entire life, and would be abjectly incapable of defending these assertions?
The caliph of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has a PhD in Islamic theology. Who is likely to know more about Islam — al-Baghdadi or May? The Islamic State's actions of kidnapping and enslaving Infidel women are justified in several places in the Qur'an (4:3; 4:24; 23:1-6; 33:50); its practice of beheading is also justified in the Qur'an (47:4; cf. 8:12); its demand of tribute payments from non-Muslims is likewise in the Qur'an (9:29). Perhaps may could debate Anjem Choudary on this question. That will never happen, of course, but if it did it would open a great many people's eyes in ever so sleepy, blinkered, willfully ignorant Britain.
