Wikipedia defines taqiyya as follows:
“In Islam taqiyya is a form of religious dissimulation or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.”
In other words, lying as a religious right and instruction. It was visibly on display when Yasser Arafat mouthed peaceful platitudes about America and Israel to an English-speaking audience while simultaneously swearing death and destruction to both on Al Jazeera, in Arabic. It was ignored. Taqiyya is nothing new.
The appellation “The Muslim Brotherhood” is another glowing example of taqiyya, abetted by the regime. During his pig’s breakfast of an “Arab Spring” The Lyin’ King insisted that The Muslim Brotherhood was nothing but a peaceful, humanitarian organization. Despite that attempt to impose Imperial taqiyya, The Muslim Brotherhood has, arguably, emerged as radical Islam’s most violent and to-be-feared terrorist arm. It is closely linked to, among other things, Syrian, Iranian and Palestinian terrorist activity.
In Wednesday’s headlines from the Washington Free Beacon: “Muslim Brotherhood Official, Former Clinton Foundation Employee Arrested: Official business for two organizations overlapped.” It wouldn’t be the first time there was an ignored international conflict of interest by the Clintons. Especially where The Muslim Brotherhood was involved. The Clintons are no strangers to throwing out the welcome mat to those closely affiliated with The Muslim Brotherhood. Huma Abedin, Assistant to then Secretary of State, and long-time beneficiary of Mrs. Clinton’s favors, politically and remuneratively, has close family ties to The Muslim Brotherhood. The Washington Free Beacon reports: “Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials until Egyptian security forces seized him as part of a wider crackdown on officials loyal to ousted former President Mohamed Morsi. Before emerging as a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Morsi, el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation…” All at the same time he was on the Clinton payroll.
Examples of taqiyya are prevalent everywhere one looks … if one only wishes to see. Pervez Musharraf once said “Islam teaches tolerance, not hatred; universal brotherhood, not enmity; peace, and not violence.” Taqiyya. Musharraf never took his own advice. Musharraf was a four star general who gained the presidency of Pakistan through a bloody coup d’état. He was later accused of assassinating former Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, the first woman elected to office in a Muslim state, shortly after he’d granted her amnesty from trumped up charges of corruption. She had returned to Pakistan, after self-exile, to run for office again. She was leading in the race at the time she was forcibly launched into paradise via a car bomb, less than two months after her return to Pakistan and Musharraf’s“amnesty.” On Wednesday, according to India’s Post, Musharraf is seeking a retrial for murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges in an anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. He is facing several other murder charges as well. Facts won’t impede his denials; taqiyya.
In 1504 a fatwa was issued allowing extensive use of taqiyya. A Western world, eager to be deceived, has been water-boarded with it ever since. Small wonder the U.N. has gone from recognizing the nation of Israel to declaring it the most heinous government on earth in just 65 years. Taqiyya has been the primary gambit in the radical Islam playbook since the Western world began to rewrite its history and bleat about “fairness,” relentlessly scuttling to level the playing field and to assume guilt, real or imagined.
No matter what crimes are committed by radicals; Islamic radicals simply deny, the West buys. Taqiyya endorses murder while howling for “justice.” “Justice” is the last thing radicals want. But in the arena of the aggrieved, no one knows how to play a PC America better than radical Islamists. Just look at 9/11. And today “justice” translates as “overlook any atrocity I commit while giving me everything I want.”
