Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

Islam: Western Leaders Are Well Deceived

by Michael Copeland

Islam has a sinister feature that is insufficiently known in the West: authorised deception. This has an Arabic name, taqiyya, and features as “Permissible Lying” in the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, r8. The Muslim Brotherhood’s secret Explanatory Memorandum, captured in a police raid, instructs on “Using deception to mask intended goals”. “Taqiyya permeates almost all the activities and dealings of Muslims with non-Muslim societies…”, explains Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law. After all, one of Allah’s ninety-nine names is “The Greatest of Deceivers”.

“If you want to know about Islam”, writes Paul Wilkinson, “Do not talk to Muslims”. You are likely to be given a misleading account. British Prime Ministers Blair and Cameron were both advised by the smooth-talking serial liar Tariq Ramadan. He is the likely source of their bold confident statements on Islam, which, though made with a great air of authority, are hopelessly erroneous. The West’s politicians, of course, as Pat Condell observes, are all Islamic scholars: “They are, aren’t they?”

“After every atrocity committed in the name of Islam,” said Geert Wilders, “Barack Obama, David Cameron, Angela Merkel and my own Prime Minister [Rutte] rush to the television cameras to declare that these acts have nothing to do with Islam.

“How stupid do they think we are?”

Jamie Glazov, in Jihadist Psychopath, writes, “Some kind of “pressure” is in the air — a pressure that ensures that after every jihadist attack, we call the attack everything but what it actually is. We are to ascribe many different motives to the perpetrators, except the very motives that they themselves have candidly identified.”

A commenter, CogitoErgoSum, observes, “Seems to me that… all of the leaders in the West are practicing wishful thinking. These people are hoping that if they repeat something often enough it will become accepted by the masses.”

David Wood complains, “The only response… is to say, over and over again, that real Islam promotes peace and tolerance… Hence, what British leaders are doing is actually worse than doing nothing. They are actively protecting and promoting the ideology that calls for the violence.”

The Litany of Denial

Western politicians, and judges too, show how well deceived they are when they make authoritative pronouncements denying any link between Islamic State and Islam, likewise when they confidently repeat that terrorists have distorted Islam. Both are successful products of taqiyya deception.

“…there is… nothing whatsoever about ISIL that is related to Islam.” — John Kerry, US Secretary of State, 12 Oct 2014

“I refuse to call them the Islamic State, because they are neither Islamic or a state.” — Hillary Clinton

“They have nothing to do with the great religion of Islam” — David Cameron

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said there was “no link” between recent attacks in three cities that have left more than 20 people injured. French interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said the motive was not clear.

“But we also see faith being twisted and distorted….” — President Obama, 5 Feb 2015

“This is a war fought by extremists who pervert the true faith of Islam.” — Tony Blair

“An ideology that distorts and warps Islam’s true message.” — Tony Blair

“…it is a poisonous ideology of Islamist extremism that is condemned by all faiths and by all faith leaders.” — David Cameron

“A religion of peace was being distorted, turned upside down and inside out, perverted in the cause of an abhorrent and violent set of intentions.” — Nick Clegg

“It has nothing to do with Islam. Islam is a peaceful religion.” — Theresa May

Like a Monty Python Sketch

When these confidently authoritative pronouncements by Western politicians are set out next to statements by Islamic scholars and jihadis the result reads like a Monty Python script. Here are examples, with the Islamic statements in bold type.

“Islam is peace.” — George W. Bush (no Islamic qualifications)

“Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war,”Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Caliph of Islamic State, PhD in Islamic Studies

“The doctrine and teachings of Islam are those of peace and harmony… It is a whole teaching dedicated to building peace in the world…” — Tony Blair, quoted by Douglas Murray, The Strange Death of Europe.

“Therefore, killing you and fighting you, destroying you and terrorizing you, responding back to your attacks, are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion.”Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

“There is not a problem with Islam… there is no doubt about its true and peaceful nature.” — Tony Blair

“Islam is a religion of blood for the infidels. Kill them. Put them to the sword. Killing is a great Divine gift. Prophet had sword to kill people, Jihad stands for killing all kafirs around the world. Push your sword into their bodies, cut them into pieces. …Sword is the key to Allah’s paradise.”Ayatollah Khomeini

“The killing of an infidel, the bombing of an embassy, the killing of US diplomats, or the killing of Rafidite Shiites do not constitute chaos. These are great, noble, and blessed steps towards order.” — Sudanese Cleric Al-Jazoul

“They are killing and slaughtering thousands of people… They boast of their brutality. They claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace. They are not Muslims. They are monsters.” — David Cameron

“Islam is a religion of power, fighting, jihad, beheading and bloodshed.” — Imam Hussein Bin Mahmoud, prominent writer

“Islam is the religion of agitation, revolution, blood, liberation and martyrdom.”Shaikh Morteza Mathari

“The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, Islam will fight and destroy.” — Maududi, Jihad in Islam, quoted by Tradewinds, comment

“There is NOTHING in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.” — David Cameron on the killing of Lee Rigby

“Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.” — Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the highest Sunni authority, Citizen Warrior, October 2010

“Allah has tasked all Muslims in Quran 9:29 to continue to attack Jews and Christians who refuse to believe in him and his messenger, Prophet Mohammed.” — Abu Qaqa of Boko Haram

“Until the last day of our lives we will fight against Sweden and all of Europe. Yes, we will kill them. We are not ashamed of it.”Sheikh Ahmed, member of IS

“This was a jihadi attack on infidel forces… I wasn’t insane or post-traumatic, nor was I forced to do this Act. The attack was justified according to Islamic Laws and the Islamic Religion. Jihad — to fight those who wage war on Islam and Muslims.”Carlos Bledsoe, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, Little Rock shooter

“Let’s be clear. Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” — Hillary Clinton

“We were terrorists, we are terrorists and we shall remain terrorist, Allah willing…we shall continue to spread terrorism and havoc until Shariah is implemented and Khilafah [caliphate] is established over the whole world”Our Right To Spread Terror, Omar Khalid Khorasani, Pakistan Taliban commander

“Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”Zakir Naik

“Mujahideen are proud to kill in the name of God. And that is exactly what God told us to do in the Koran… Allahu akbar! … Allahu akbar!”Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, underwear bomber 2012

“It is obligatory for us to begin fighting with them [infidels] after transmitting the invitation [to embrace Islam], even if they do not fight against us.”Hassan Al-Banna, of the Muslim Brotherhood

“…fundamentally wrong to attach the word ‘terrorism’ to any of the world religions.” — Max Hill QC (Queen’s Counsel), Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation

“Terrorism is part of Islam!”Abu Izzadeen

“Muslims reject democracy and secularism!”placard

“Ban Democracy Implement Islam!”placard

“Let me be absolutely clear: as Muslims, we reject democracy, we reject secularism, and freedom, and human rights.”Anjem Choudary, MEMRI

“…perversion of Islam is the source of a lot of the problems in the Middle East.” — Tony Blair

“It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam.” — Theresa May

“Those who pervert Islam are not those who cut off the heads of disbelievers and terrorize them, but those who want (Islam) to be like Mandela or Gandhi, with no killing, no fighting, no blood or striking necks.” Islam is the religion “of battle, of cutting heads, of shedding blood.”Sheikh Hussein bin Mahmoud, Islamic State cleric, after the killing of James Foley.

“You were radicalised and each became an extremist — espousing a cause and views which… are a betrayal of Islam and of the peaceful Muslim communities who give so much to our country.” — Mr. Justice Sweeney, to Lee Rigby’s killers

“It’s not a betrayal! You know nothing about Islam!”Lee Rigby’s killer

“…definitely we will force Islamic rule on all the world when we have power.”Sheik Omar Bakri, adviser to Anjem Choudary


The taqiyya-plying Islamic advisors have been very effective. Nearly all Western politicians are ignorant of Islam’s teachings. They assume, mistakenly, that Islam shares Western values. It does not. Hear Gordon Brown when Prime Minister:

“Ramadan’s message of compassion and social justice spreads beyond Muslim communities; it speaks of shared values that unite us all.”

Archbishop Nona, Chaldean Archbishop of Mosul, Iraq, forced to flee from Islamic State’s brutal kafir-killings, sounds the warning:

“You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.”

Reprehensibly, Western politicians persist in their fantasy view, even in the face of daily jihad attacks across the world, now numbering well over thirty-eight thousand since 9/11. The few politicians, like Geert Wilders, who are informed and do raise concerns are labelled “controversial far right”. The knowledgeable Lord Pearson asked in the House of Lords for the government to enquire of Muslim leaders whether there were any instructions in the Koran giving sanction to the sexual use of countless English girls. Immediately there was a general, though polite, wave of muttering of disapproval and reproach, as if merely mentioning such a possibility were a shock and a heresy. Government spokesman Lord Young did not even answer the question. Instead, like a Sheikh issuing a fatwa, he roundly delivered a flat denial:

“There is NOTHING in the Koran that encourages the sort of activity the noble Lord has referred to.”

Evidently Lord Young must be one of those Islamic scholars Pat Condell referred to. In the event he is diametrically wrong. There is PLENTY in the Koran, but, thanks to definitive announcements such as his, no-one is taking the trouble to look. The Koran, after all, is extremely relevant: it forms part of Islamic law. The deceivers have done their task well.

John Guandolo, previously a counter-terrorism expert for the FBI, and very well informed, was highly critical of David Cameron after the killing of Lee Rigby:

“The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom demonstrated his utter ignorance of the threat his nation is facing.”

Allow a Minister from the Emirates to have the last word:

“EU. Leaders… believe they understand the Middle East and Islam better than we do. It is pure ignorance.”

  1. I wouldnt be surprised if all our so called leaders are already muslims and just betraying us.

    • I take issue with the authors premise. I think the only thing the western leaders don’t know is that the word for their standard operating procedures in Arabic is called taqiyya.

      • If I had one wish free I would like to have the telepathic powers of Prof X – even just for one hour.
        Then I would read the minds of all our leaders and at the same time send this information directly into the minds of all people of Europe and Northamerica.

        But I think my life expectancy afterwards would be measured in hours at most.

  2. This tendency to allow yourself to be deceived is quite ancient.

    Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur
    Petronius. Lived 27 AD — c. 66 AD

    trans. for the non-Latin readers: “The world wants to be deceived, so let it be deceived.”

  3. This rapist! He’s Grandson of Muslim brotherhood founder, Hassan al bana,

    [Redacted], he’s a rapist, liar and terrorist!

    • They are all liars , manipulative scums !!!, never do business or hire Muslim!!, they sell you with no blink of the eye..

  4. Is it not strange that our leaders, who have invited millions of muslims into our countries, refuse to see the disaster they have visited upon us?

    Then again, given the money that Saudi Arabia distributes, maybe it is not so strange. Tony Blair earned about £140,000 per year as prime minister, now he is a multi-millionaire, his wealth is estimated at over £20 million. How did that happen?

    One thing is for sure: since Mrs Thatcher, not one former prime minister has accepted what used to an automatic peerage and membership of the House of Lords. Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron and May. Not one of them. Why? Well, one reason might be that anyone who becomes a Lord has to demonstrate to the tax authorities that he has complied with all the tax laws, and has no hidden overseas wealth. Clearly, that might be a problem for some of our ex-prime ministers, who all seem to become fabulously wealthy as soon as they leave 10 Downing Street. Odd that.
