Yeah? So did I! Was it in a machine shop in Jersey City?
Sort of like how Neville Chamberlain played to his.
Tancredo, on the other hand, got it just right.
"We want to let all of Houston citizens know that we stand behind peace and justice and we are absolutely against any terrorism or any terrorism actions in this city." Saleh said.As meant?...
"We want to let all of Houston citizens (Except the Crusaders and bloodsucking Jews) know that we stand behind peace and justice and we are absolutely against any terrorism (against Muslims) or any terrorism actions in this city (except those against the Great Satan and the Little Satan)." Saleh said.But perhaps I'm just being cynical.
I never said I didn't have a problem with CAIR.. Some people that claim to represent the Republican party/interests are white supremeacists, do they speak for the GOP.. Then nor do those who condemn muslim terrorism who happen to be muslim need to be dismissed just because they are also muslim... A few years ago on the anniversary of 9/11 there was a panel meeting at wku and the local muslim imam condemned islamic terrorist attacks and those claiming to act in the name of islam.. reason many don't is in part that they fear reprisal from other muslims (similar to Omerta for the italians or moser for the jews). But if they don't take more concrete action to condemn more widespread than the holy places should be targeted..
I think he's just a shrewd businessman who knows how to play to his audience.
The two aren't mutually exclusive.
No, I don't think you do! YOU think you do, because you are GULLIBLE enough to believe their bald-faced LIES!
Because every time they do, we can show their LIES!
It is people like YOU that lap UP their lies, and put on the collar like a good little Dhimmi!
The word "al-Taqiyya" literally means: "Concealing or disguising one's beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury." A one-word translation would be "Dissimulation."
The above definition must be elaborated upon before any undertaking of this topic is to ensue. Although correct, the definition suffers from an apparent generalization, and lacks some fundamental details that should be construed:
First, the CONCEALMENT of one's beliefs does NOT necessitate an ABANDONMENT of these beliefs. The distinction between "concealment" and "abandonment" MUST be noted here.
Second, there are numerous exceptions to the above definition, and they MUST be judged according to the situation that one is placed in. As such, one should NOT make a narrow-minded generalization that encompasses all situations, thereby failing to fully absorb the spirit of the definition.
Third, the word "beliefs" and/or "convictions" does NOT necessarily mean "religious" beliefs and/or convictions.
With the above in mind, it becomes evident that a better, and more accurate definition of "al-Taqiyya" is "diplomacy." The true spirit of "al- Taqiyya" is better embodied in the single word "diplomacy" because it encompasses a comprehensive spectrum of behaviors that serve to further the vested interests of all parties involved.
Real nice. Yeah, I trust them... NOT!
Ask yourselves; What kind of religion needs this sort of deceptive doctrine built into it from it's inception? I submit that it is the kind of religion that was designed from the ground up to destroy all other belief systems.
