Islam uses deceit in dealing with Kafirs – TAQIYYA. It amounts to being two-faced, loose with the truth. It can mean outright lying, or saying a half truth to be deliberately misleading, or otherwise concealing the real intention. It may be permissible lying or obligatory lying. Both are a clear manifestation of “the end justifies the means” – the end being the protection and advancement of Islam. Islamic spokesmen are generally masters of Taqiyya, succeeding calamitously in confusing us Kafirs about the nature and intentions of Islam. When you hear an Islamic spokesman on the media, take what he says with a bushel of salt.
Taqiyya is only one of FOUR different techniques for confusing or misleading Kafirs. Others include:
(2) KITHMAN – telling only part of the truth – like saying “I hate Hitler” when the real meaning continues “because he didn’t kill all the Jews”. Or when a Muslim says that that JIHAD really means “a spiritual struggle”, and fails to add that this particular definition is an 11th century invention that originated from a single, weak collection of hadith reflected in only 3% of the Koran’s references to Jihad, whereas the other 97% of references are about violence and war. This misleads by holding back the true violent nature of jihad.
(3) MURUNA – using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings, and not appear Islamic, so as to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and trust their Muslim counterpart, opening them to terrorist attack. Muslims will sometimes shave off their beards, wear western clothing, or even drink alcohol to blend in with non-Muslims;
(4) TAWRIYA – concealing, or “creative lying”. Here are two examples:
It is OK to break the intent of an oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath. (Reliance of the Traveller, sections o19.1 and o19.5)
Consider this: Sura 1 of the Koran is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day. Verses 5 to 7 say:
“Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.”
Suppose someone protests that Sura 1 of the Koran demeans Christians and Jews. A Muslim might respond, “Sura 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practising tawriya, because while Sura 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, he knows full-well that the words “those” refer respectively to Jews and Christians.
Islamic doctrine has no hangup about truth and honesty. Its supreme ethic is “The end justifies the means.”
So when a Muslim spokesman speaks nice-sounding words completely at variance with the behaviour of Islam that’s on display all around the world – he is using one or other of Islam’s forms of permissible or obligatory LYING.
For a comparison with Christianity, note that Jesus says in Matthew 5:37: “Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”
Have a look at this graphic. You need to take these statements with a grain of salt. For starters, the word Islam doesn’t mean peace, it means submission.
A classic Taqiyya gambit is to quote a “mild” verse of the Koran in full knowledge that it has been abrogated (overturned) by a later, violent one. Like Koran 2:256 – “There is no compulsion in religion.” This is ABROGATED by many verses after it. The very next sura (chapter) chronologically – the second one “revealed” from Medina – says:
Koran 8:39 – “And fight them [the unbelievers] until there is no fitnah [rebellion] and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah.”
Muslim apologists (Taqiyya merchants) love to quote Sura 5:32 as proof that Islam is peaceful. The bit they quote is “whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. …”
This is classic, deceptive, taking out of context. The complete passage reads:
5:32 – For that cause We decreed FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.
[This is an oblique reference to the murder of Abel by Cain in Genesis 4, and the subsequent covenant with Noah in Genesis 9.]
But the VERY NEXT verse after that humane stuff in 5:32 says:
5:33 – The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be KILLED OR CRUCIFIED, or have their HANDS AND FEET ON ALTERNATE SIDES CUT OFF, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom;
5:34 – Save those who repent before ye overpower them.
Taqiyya like that using Koran 5:32 is sickening, and people who believe it are utterly deceived because of their refusal to READ the Islamic scriptures and look honestly at the empirical evidence of Islam’s behaviour over 1400 years.
