The “Palestinian” cause is fashionable among Leftist leaders and spokesmen worldwide. None of those Leftists appear to be aware, or to care, that the foundational principles and beliefs that motivate Muslims to take up that cause are inimical to their own interests.
In this case, South African leaders are endorsing a cause that works directly against them, for the “Palestinian” jihadis, like all jihadis, believe that no government that does not enforce Sharia has any right to exist. These non-Muslim South African leaders would, in the ideal scenario favored by the “Palestinian” hunger strikers, be converted to Islam, subjugated under the hegemony of Sharia, or killed.
What’s more, a canonical hadith depicts Muhammad as buying black slaves, which means that it is permissible to do so under Islamic law: “Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Holy Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man).” (Muslim 3901)
