The next column will be a bit controversial. So be it. You will find it on the Friday page of my news organization.
My city is entering a new phase regarding geopolitical Islam.
In the room. In the room with a few of the actors.
The first stage of jihad is based on a sense of being wronged:
“Permission to take up arms is given to those against whom war is made, because they have been wronged and Allah, indeed, has power to help them.”
The aggrieved party has seen all lawsuits dismissed with sanctions.
On his Twitter feed this week: “and your Lord does injustice to no one” in Arabic and English transliteration.
Things progress within an order of operations in Islam. (Allah is the best of all planners)
I am grateful to be a part of this journey. As a journalist it is important that I cover the stories that affect my city. This next phase, albeit a wedge maneuver between the first and second stages of jihad, is noteworthy.
