Shaking hands

Jihadist Website said they said to Ibn Hajar al-Haythami: “Is it allowed for the Muslim to extend his hand when greeting a Christian, so that he could shake it?” He answered: “No, because the Christian will feel at peace when he is shaking your hand.

So a member of the "Religion of peace" cannot even shake the had of a Christian because it will make him feel at peace.
So, it is not allowed for you to extend your hand for him to shake.”…It was narrated to me by the leader of the Islamic Movement in Jordan - our teacher, Muhammad ‘Abd ar-Rahman Khalifah:... Edit: Some might read this and think this is too harsh since there is no known recorded hadith on the forbidden act of shaking the hand of a Kafir. I posted this because Shaykh ‘Abdullah ‘Azzam (rahimahullah) is referring to a higher level of Taqwa; even higher than Warr.
Taqwa is fear of Allah; I cound not find out what Warr was.
