“US officials consider this foot-dragging a sign that the Iranian leadership is still formulating its positions ahead of the talks.”
No, this is Obama the Muslim permitting the Iranians to perpetrate more taqiyya, or lying, to further Muslim aims and objectives; all permitted, of course, by the Koran, the Hadith and Islamic law. There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, “taqiyya” (saying something that is patently untrue) and “kitman” (lying by omission). These two instances of prevarication are generally used to advance the cause Islam by gaining the trust of non-believers (infidels) in order to heighten their vulnerability and, ultimately, to defeat or subjugate them.
Absolutely and without a doubt.
