CIA director Brennan; "Al-Qaeda’s ideology (Islam, is) built on “a perverse and very corrupt interpretation of the Qur’an”

Another non-Muslim talking out their backside, insulting Muslims my telling them what Islam is.  Al Qaeda follows the behavior and normative actions of Muhammad, and they tell us by copiously quoting Qur'anic sura and verse.  There are Muslims who want nothing to do with the Al Qaeda version, but that does not diminish or negate how jihadists, and Al Qaeda use Islamic texts and tenets to justify their actions.  All four schools of Islamic jurisprudence as well as Al Azhar University in Cairo, seat of Sunni power uphold as right the doctrinal foundations Al Qaeda and jihadists continually use to justify their attacks.  Al Qaeda is not perverting or corrupting the Qur'an, they are elevating it to the highest level of respect and honor.  Brennan doesn't get this, and spouts useless rhetoric which is gobbled up by the masses as gospel truth.  Thus the continued spread of Islam and the support from useful idiots like Brennan.

CIA Head: Al-Qaeda Has 'Perverse and Very Corrupt Interpretation of Qur'an' 
( – Al-Qaeda’s ideology, built on “a perverse and very corrupt interpretation of the Qur’an,” resonates in many parts of the world, and is often fed by political repression, economic disenfranchisement and “lack of education and ignorance,” CIA Director John Brennan said on Tuesday.

During an event at the Council on Foreign Relations, Brennan was asked about the “war of ideas” surrounding Islam, which the questioner said many Americans tend to equate with violence.

In the course of his response Brennan said al-Qaeda has “a perverse and very corrupt interpretation of the Qur’an. One of the things that I'm struck with when I travel throughout the Middle East and I meet with leaders, military and civilian – these are individuals who are Qur’anic scholars themselves and they are the ones who are most annoyed at how al-Qaeda has hijacked their religion and how they have really distorted the teachings of Mohammed, you know, for violent purposes.”

Taqiyya in action, but Brennan does not know how to identify it.

“Now, quite unfortunately, though, that ideology, that agenda of al-Qaeda has gained resonance and following in many parts of the world,” he continued. “It’s fed a lot of times by, you know, political repression, by economic, you know, disenfranchisement, by, you know, lack of education and ignorance, so there – there are a number of phenomena right now that I think are fueling the fires of, you know, this ideology.”

Assertions of a link between Islamist terrorism and poverty or lack of education have been called into question by some research.

A Rand Corporation report on counterterrorism, prepared for the Office of the Secretary of Defense in 2009, found that, “Terrorists are not particularly impoverished, uneducated, or afflicted by mental disease. Demographically, their most important characteristic is normalcy (within their environment). Terrorist leaders actually tend to come from relatively privileged backgrounds.”

“Terrorists turn out to be more rather than less educated than the general population” according to a number of academic studies, one of the report authors noted.
