On September 11, 2007, I was sitting around minding my own business and quietly remembering the thousands who lost their lives six years earlier. It was a nice, peaceful morning until I received an email from someone claiming to be Professor Julio Pino of Kent State University. Pino is a Muslim extremist who advocates the mass murder of Jews while drawing a paycheck from the hard-working people of the great state of Ohio.

The most memorable portions of the disturbing email are reproduced below:

“O, Slaves of Zion and Amerika, Arise! The shaheed (martyr) who yearns to die, and has prayed for this moment all his life, has come to rescue you!”

“The martyr is performing an action that is the culmination of a whole life’s struggle, and in turn gives meaning to that life. Muslims venerate the Prophet Mohammed (Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon him) as al-kemal-al-insan (The Perfect Man).”

“The shaheed, May God Be Pleased with Him, is not only the perfect soldier, but the perfect Muslim. All of life is preparation, and striving for, martyrdom.”

“The intention for martyrdom is elevated to a higher status than the final act itself. A soldier walking, without shaking, into a field of fire courts death but does not desire it from birth.”

 “(T)he Muslim knows no continents, regions, nations or tribes but acknowledges the existence of only two groups of human beings; men of faith---his Brothers---and the kaaffir (unbelievers and apostates), those ungrateful and rebellious beings that, like Satan himself, opted for disobedience. With the latter no compromise is possible or permissible, by Islamic principles.”

“The Muslim is commanded in the Quran to ‘fight oppression and overcome tribulation, until all religion is for Allah.’ This is the true meaning of jihad; daily struggle, in every manner prescribed by Allah and His Messenger.”

 “Jihad is constant battle, in all places and at all times, with those forces, natural and supernatural, that would remove the Muslim from the sacred realm and into the profane. Dying on the battlefield or in any other way ordained by the kaaffir is a profane act unless death is dedicated to Allah.”

“The martyr has no time for peace; no time to be cynical, or pessimistic.”

“The Muslim world is poetic, and the greatest of all epics is martyrdom.“Laa ‘ilaahaillallahu (There is none worthy of worship but Allah) must be on his dying lips that he may enter Paradise. Not by chance did Mohammed Atta’s ‘Instructions for the Final Night’ counsel him [sic] make these his last words before crashing into the World Trade Center. Amen.”
