The End-Goal of Islam

“Between the two there was a morally necessary, legally and religiously obligatory state of war, until the final and inevitable triumph of Islam over unbelief. According to the law books, tis state of war could be interrupted, when expedient, by an armistice or truce of limited duration. It could not be terminated by a peace, but only by a final victory” (Bernard Lewis on the Ottoman Empire, quoted in Schindler, *Unholy Terror: Bosnia, Al-Qa’ida, and the Rise of Global Jihad,* pp. 20-21).
