God (Allah) said, "Praise be Allah, who created the heavens and the earth, and made the darkness and the light. Yet those who reject faith, hold others as equal with their God. He it is created you from clay, and then decreed a stated term for you, and there is in His presence another determined term. Yet you doubt within yourselves, and He is Allah, God of the heavens and the earth. He knows what you hide, and what you reveal, and He knows the recompense which you earn by your deeds" (Qur'an, 6:1-3).
One of the most important in Islamic values is, that God created humankind to be fully accountable for his actions. Each human being has certain rights and responsibilities, and no human being has the right to restrict the freedom of another. Anyone who dares to take away the God given rights inherent in Islam, including the right to human dignity, is called a wrongdoer or an oppressor. God calls on those who obey Him to stand up for the rights of the oppressed.
God said, "And why should you not fight in the cause of Allah and of the feeble among man, and of the women and the children who are crying, "Our Lord (Allah)! Rescue us on this town whose people are oppressors, and raise for us from Thee One (Allah) who will protect, and raise for us from Thee One who will help!" (Qur'an, 4:75).
In Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine this God said (Qur'an, 4:75) is very urgent. Based on this verse, Islamic fighters in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine want to protect and help the peoples who crying to God, from oppress by military of USA, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), and Israel. Islamic fighters in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine have the process by which and individual's attitudes, belief, and behaviors are influenced by Islamic values. As a result, in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine, million peoples in the world can see Islamic civilization (as angel force) face to face with West civilization (as evil force).
Samuel P. Huntington (1992) said, that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future.
To support Samuel P. Huntington, Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon (2002) said, that Islamic discourse dominates societies, the airwaves, and thinking about the world. Islamic values have proliferated throughout the world. Bookstores are dominated by works with Islamic themes. The demand for sharia (Islamic law), the belief that Islam is the answer to all problems, and the fact that the West government hate Islam and moslem dominate public discussion.
Million peoples think that to live an Islamic life is a balanced way of living, and respect of human right. They know, that God created all the human with what is called a "fitrah" (the inherent behavior), which include to protect and help the people who are crying to God from oppressors. Million peoples know, that one day human shall die and return to God.
God said, "You desire the good of this world, but Allah desires for you the hereafter, and Allah is Almighty and All Wise (Qur'an, 8:67).
