How Taqiyya Alters Islam's Rules of War
Middle East Quarterly ^ | Raymond Ibrahim

Posted on 01/06/2010 2:33:01 PM PST by ventanax5

Islam must seem a paradoxical religion to non-Muslims. On the one hand, it is constantly being portrayed as the religion of peace; on the other, its adherents are responsible for the majority of terror attacks around the world. Apologists for Islam emphasize that it is a faith built upon high ethical standards; others stress that it is a religion of the law. Islam's dual notions of truth and falsehood further reveal its paradoxical nature: While the Qur'an is against believers deceiving other believers—for "surely God guides not him who is prodigal and a liar"[1]—deception directed at non-Muslims, generally known in Arabic as taqiyya, also has Qur'anic support and falls within the legal category of things that are permissible for Muslims.

As long as taqiyya is practiced, you can't trust a female muslim selling dunkin dounuts. Wondering how and why she is allowed to work here and not beheaded or worse for selling dounuts to a man?

Who does that seriously now? I know President Bush claimed that, but I hope that he didn't fool himself into believing that. From its beginning it was a religion of war and conquest and the only time it wasn't trying to chop its enemies' heads off was when its enemies were standing on its neck to keep it down.

Paradoxes are things that would seem obvious, but turn out to be the opposite of those preconceived expectations. "The poor are blessed," or "big things come in small packages," are examples of paradox.

Islam is not paradox; it is hypocrisy and pretense for tyranny.

Islam is a globally oriented institutionalized politically religious system granting a permanent, lifetime guaranteed HUNTING LICENSE for religious conversion,taxation(jizya), slavery or death on anyone or any form of govt not controlled by Sharia law. Any and all necessary measures, especially terrorism and taquiya (deliberate lying, disinformation, misrepresentation), are approved if the target is non-muslim. Sunnis (Salafists, Wahabbists) and Shiites consider each other apostate, and so, may fight for the conversion, taxation, death of the other(the Arab League especially fears Iranian Shiites with nuclear weapons).

The problem with Islam in this regard is not that it is not a religion of peace, but that its conception of peace is fundamentally flawed.

In Semitic languages, the consonants of a word are its root. So consider two words: Islam and Salem, submission and peace. These two notions are not radically distinct to Muslims, for whom Arabic is the normative language—they are fundamentally the same word: slm.

The only peace know to Islam is the peace of submission, the peace between victor and vanquished, between master and slave. Peace agreed to for mutual benefit is unknown. Muslims may negotiate a hudna, a cease-fire, in a war, but not a peace.

Great post. Speaking of muslim lies & treachery, follow the case of Rifqa Bary in Ohio. CAIR financed legal team is attempting to kill her for converting to Christianity. Here’s the link to all the info at Atlas Shrugs:

Muhammad ...permitted lying in three situations: to reconcile two or more quarreling parties, to placate one's wife, and in war

...and to lure a bunch of smelly, camel-breath losers into an afterlife that is professed to include 72 virgins.

One wonders how a Muslim could be brought to trial then in the American court system.

If the system is dependent on all participants telling the truth... then there could never be a valid case with a Muslim defendant, plaintiff, attorney or juror. Everyone involved should assume that the Muslim will lie if the end result would be self-preservation.

Shiites do not actually consider Sunnis to be apostates.

Absolutely they’ll lie! and they are masters at doing so. Many years of practice as it’s comman to do so even among themselves.

Now that they’ll be in our court systems hang onto your hats for the ride....and the costs will be out of the park!

The ultimate “peace of Islam” can only be reached when the entire world submits to Islam as the only true faith, either as converts or as dhimmis, denying other faiths. As long as there are millions of Christians, Jews, Hindus etc then “peace” has not yet been attained. I suppose that if the entire world were ruled by a violent theocracy and everyone knew they would be beheaded if they sinned, the world would be peaceful...in a night-of-the-living-dead sort of way.

I’ve heard it referred to as a “gutter religion.” But me, I’m a big fan of Executive Summaries.

Islam is an insane murder cult, the rest is PR designed to lull future jihad victims to sleep.
