In Islam, lying or omissions for the 'greater good,' according to a strict or radical Islam/Islamist philosophy is not only acceptable, it is holy and blessed work. It is called al-Takeyya (or al-Taqiyya) and is a strategy outlined in the Hadiths and supported by various interpretations of some of the Suras in the Koran. We have just seen it in action and most people never even caught the whiff of mental ether the Islamists were pouring into the airways of the already comatose and choking non-Islamist world.
Al-Takeyya is a policy whereby a Muslim may lie, deceive or omit critical truths if it promotes the spreading of Islam AND the conquest of the non-Muslim world. According to William P. Welty, Ph.D., al-Takeyya/Taqiyya is:
"The Islamic principle of lying for the sake of Allah. Falsehoods told to prevent denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned by the Qur'an, including lying under penalty of perjury in testimony before the United States Congress, lying or making distorted statements to the media such as claiming that Islam is a religion of peace and deceiving fellow Muslims when the one lying has deemed them to be apostates." (1)
And here is the definition from an Islam encyclopedia website:
"The word "al-Taqiyya" literally means: "Concealing or disguising one's beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies..." (2)
Now here's where the latest Islamist sneak maneuver of al Takeyya/Taqiyya comes into play. The Islamic Commission of Spain issued a decree against al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. They did this in response to the bombing of a Madrid train last year by al Qaeda.
Mansur Escudero, head of the Federation of Islamic Religious Entities, called on clerics to formally condemn terrorism and pray for all terror victims. He went on to state, ''The terrorist acts of Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda organization ... which result in the death of civilians, such as women and children ... are totally prohibited and are the object of strong condemnation within Islam.''
Sounds good so far.
But let's examine what this man did not say, as well as the timing of his little media-sensation fatwa.
This fatwa was timed to coincide with the 1-year anniversary of the bombing in Madrid. Sure, several hundred people died, but this is not the first time that hundreds, nay, thousands of people have died at the hands of Muslims merely because they weren't Muslim.
Therefore, one must ask why was there no such fatwa issued in the aftermath of 9-11? And why has no fatwa about the "...death of civilians, such as women and children'' ever been issued regarding the thousands upon thousands of Jewish/Israeli victims of genocidal terror ever been issued?
I will tell you why. This is al-Takeyya/Taqiyya at its most devious and deceptive. And the key word here is 'civilians.'
In radical Islam (Islamism), any Jew living in Israel is not considered either 'innocent' or a 'civilian.' Nor were the people living and working in America on 9-11. Islamists consider the 'Great Satan -- America,' and the 'Little Satan -- Israel,' to be enemy combatants. And this includes every man, woman or child, even babes in arms, even sleeping or in school or playing in playgrounds. This includes any and all who are not Islamists and who oppose being forced to kneel down and pay homage to Allah or his followers. In particular, Christians (whom they call 'Crusaders'), and Jews.
This also includes those of us who refuse to allow the Islamists to insidiously inject their politico-religious dogma into our way of life. And this especially includes Israel, whom the Islamists view as a polluting force in their quest for 'Arab unity' and a Judenrein Middle East.
So the fatwa issued by this Muslim cleric living in Spain was meant to put the free and civilized world into yet another coma. He was hoping we would see this supposedly 'peaceful and tolerant' religious edict and sing the praises of Islam and remind each other how it is a 'peaceful' religion, even though the word 'Islam' also means 'to submit,' and our utter and complete submission is what they are working towards.
The crafter of this latest religious edict, so proudly trumpeted to the world, has achieved nothing more than a clumsy attempt to delude us into thinking that Islamism is really nice and honorable and loving and peaceful. It is also meant to deceive us into believing that even though such edicts were never issued -- and will never be issued -- regarding Americans or Israelis, these particular Muslims are mainstream moderates.
Camel cakes! We are now familiar with the ploy of lying, omissions and deceit as sanctioned by al-Takeyya/Taqiyya. And some of us are not in a humanist/liberal feel-good coma like lambs going to the slaughter. And we will continue to alert you to the deceptions used by the Islamists.
The lesson to be learned here is not to look for what is said, but what is deliberately not said. If anything, this fatwa, by its omissions and timing (or lack thereof) has simply reinforced the fact that the Islamists do not see Israel or Judeo-Christian America as 'innocent.' It has reaffirmed that they see us all as ripe for deceit and murder in the name of Allah.
The author of this article seems to think so.
Muslims Lie! Whoda thunkit?
It was the one, defining moment for the alleged "moderate" Muslims to step forward and denounce- fiercely, loudly, and in no uncertain terms- their radical bretheren.
Their silence was deafening.
Their silence was enabling.
Their silence was complicity, and collusion.
I wash my hands of them.
I am so deadly serious about this:
Islam, The Alleged Religion of Peace® ( TARP )? Click this picture:
Click the pic, go to "last," and read backwards.
If you aren't informed about this stuff, you will be made sick. If you are informed, you will be made mad, all over again.
Was the fatwa issued on Osama bin Laden Al-Takeyya in action?
Just from past history, I'm inclined to say yeah, it's a bunch of camel cakes.
Self appointed Imams, empowered to lie, who can issue murderous fatwas, interpreting a religion written in a vague language, assembled in conflicting helter-skelter verses.
Discussions are useless. Islam is a dangerous cult and should be banned from civilized societies.
It never ceases to amaze me how the twenty-six little letters of the alphabet can be so succinctly combined in the mind of one individual and appear here on this page for me to read on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
'Self appointed Imams, empowered to lie, who can issue murderous fatwas, interpreting a religion written in a vague language, assembled in conflicting helter-skelter verses.'
I simply had to repeat it. You're right. Discussions are useless. Islam is a dangerous cult.
How are we to rid ourselves of islam? We can't, if we are civilized, resort to their barbarian tactics. All we can hope to do is expose it and set its brainwashed followers free.

Any 'religion' that needs lies to survive is not a religion, it is a DEATH CULT.
I can think of one angel who specializes in lying. His name is Lucifer. He is the founder and sustainer of this death cult known as islam. I do believe Mohammad is a prophet, Satan's #1 prophet.
Lucifer is the best lier ever. He mixes truth with lies to make it more believable, just like the lie that is islam.
Hey, World, OSB couldn't have carried out what he did, without a fatwa from a cleric. And now we're expected to believe there's a fatwa out on him?
Thanks for posting this article jan, Beth Goodtree knows islam.
thanks for the ping to a most revealing post--many should "read and heed" these words. However, I am dismayed at the many apologists that islam appears to have nowadays-and in the most unlikely of places. It seems that we might well fulfill the old adage "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it"
I think many would rather not re-live (or relearn) 9/11, but we are that rather nasty course. As I have said recently, we have our work cut out for us
>> I think many would rather not re-live (or relearn) 9/11 <<
I sure wouldn't, but we don't have the choice. Check out what is being taught in US mosques.
Thanks, I had seen that before, which only troubles me more. There is a large group in this nation that believe that ROP schtick, and their believing carries a right nasty price.
As I said on another thread, the "next" 9/11 will even worse that the original. Yet most of us like-minded folks here are whispering in the wind for all the attnetion others will pay.
Maybe it's time for some screaming.
"Maybe it's time for some screaming."
Yes it's amazing we can't get more than 15 posts to the article jan posted at 4:00 PM.
This is FreeRepublic.
Frepers do not seem to want to touch this subject anymore....I guess this is a good barometer of what how the geneal public is feeling.
I was kind of "laying back" on this to see if any of the "usual suspects" would show, but they haven't, so far.
Was it a meaningless gesture, window dressing for the Eurotwits and American Libs? More than likely, but there's the irony of TROP: they put out "HITS" on those that disagree, man, that's PEACEFUL!
My biggest problem with this stuff about UBL is that I figure he's dead...killed way back when, and I get tired of the MSM "Hanging on his every word". Too bad they can't at least find his head to show the rest...
Yes, first we must recognize it IS evil incarnate. I'm glad you provided that photograph, though it chills me to the bone; it serves no purpose to try to hide the fact that no one is safe from this killer-cult. Any one who could do such a thing to a woman and use the excuse that their religion requires such punishment needs to be wiped off the face of the earth.
