Zarqawi Vows Alleigence to Al-Qaida

The declaration, which appeared on a Web site often used as a clearinghouse for statements by militant groups, began with a Quranic verse encouraging Muslim unity and said al-Zarqawi considered bin Laden "the best leader for Islam's armies against all infidels and apostates."

A*pos"tate\, n. [L. apostata, Gr. ?, fr. ?. See Apostasy.] 1. One who has forsaken the faith, principles, or party, to which he before adhered; esp., one who has forsaken his religion for another; a pervert; a renegade.2. (R. C. Ch.) One who, after having received sacred orders, renounces his clerical profession.

It is worth understanding that though Islam has a history of tolerance within their faith, having never established an orthodoxy, those who are Islamic terrorists follow a more strict understanding of Islam Whabbism, believe all others of the faith that are not following that strict interpetation than they are in a state of apostaty-being considered idoltors. It therefore follows that those who are Islamic terrorists have no compunction in murdering other Muslims. Anything to gain power to remake the world in the way they see is right. Regardless of who dies in order to achieve those ends.

By this simple statement Zarqawi is making it clear to other Muslims that those who do not adhere to a specific reading of the Qur'an are Apostate and subject to the same treatment as infidels.

That said I can guarantee that those in power and those in MSM are not going to say anything regarding the religious aspects of this war. It is not politically correct. But it is a religious driven war and to put our heads in the sand over it will not help.
