INTRODUCTION

For their own misguided reasons, some false teachers try to say that Islam
authorizes terrorism in some cases and that Muslims should support
terrorism if it is conducted in retaliation for offenses against Allah and
Islam. They go on to say that Israel and the United States are the main
offenders against Allah and Islam and therefore any attack against any
people or interests of Israel or the United States are justified by Islam.
They teach the false doctrine of "substitutionary retaliation," in which
any Jew or any American is a legitimate target, even if the particular
individuals attacked are innocent of any fighting against Allah or Islam.

This paper will show, however, that the Quran absolutely forbids
terrorism for any reason because terrorism always exceeds the limits set
by Allah, deliberately intending to kill innocent people. It will point
out that an offense against an Islamic-majority country is not the same
thing as an attack on Islam itself or an attack on Allah, for there have
always been many reasons for countries to go to war, without regard to
religion. So the fight between Israel and Palestine is not a fight between
Judaism and Islam, but is, instead, a territorial conflict between a
Jewish-majority country and an Islamic-majority country. Further, it will
show that the United States does not fight against Allah or Islam, but
merely against certain murderers who falsely claim to be true Muslims. It
will also show that the doctrine of "substitutionary retaliation" is a
man-made idea, essentially unjust, and not supported by the Qur'an.

Next, this paper will demonstrate that terrorism is a form of rebellion
against Allah, in which the terrorists refuse to accept the realities of
the world, as ordained by Allah. Then, this paper will consider the proper
relationship between Christians and Muslims, based on the highest written
authority in each religion. Finally, it will call upon Saudi Arabia to
take action to end terrorism; and it will call upon the United States to
restrain Israel.

May the one God, Who created all things, Who has power over all things,
and Who gives whatever He chooses to whomever He pleases, bless this
effort to make peace among His human creatures.

AUTHORITY OF THE QURAN

THE QURAN is the highest written authority in Islam. The Quran is to
Islam as the Bible is to Christianity. For more about the Quran, please
