All of this naturally leads to Islam’s infamous doctrine of wala’ wa bara’, or “Loyalty and Enmity”; the verse quoted by Hassan is but one of many that portray non-believers as enemies to be shunned and subjugated (see also 4:89, 4:144, 5:51, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23, and 58:22).
For instance, Quran 3:28 commands “believers not to take infidels for friends and allies instead of believers… unless you but guard yourselves against them, taking precautions.” According to mainstream exegete Tabari, “taking precautions” means:
If you [Muslims] are under their [non-Muslims’] authority, fearing for yourselves, behave loyally to them with your tongue while harboring inner animosity for them … [but know that] God has forbidden believers from being friendly or on intimate terms with the infidels rather than other believers—except when infidels are above them [in authority]. Should that be the case, let them act friendly towards them while preserving their religion.
After interpreting Quran 3:28 as meaning that Muslims may “protect” themselves “through outward show” when under non-Muslim authority, Ibn Kathir, perhaps Islam’s most celebrated exegete, quotes a close companion of Muhammad saying: “Let us smile to the faces of some people while our hearts curse them.”
Such Islamic texts and teachings provide one with new appreciation for smiling, stealth jihadists operating under non-Muslim authority. Soon after watching the video clip of Sheikh Hassan, I came across the above picture of various CAIR characters, some of whom were convicted of terrorism, and wondered: Is that what a da’wa-smile looks like (minus, of course, Siraj Wahhaj, whose “stern face” suggests he is in “jihad mode”)?
