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
