It is all right to lie and deceive the unbelievers in Islam

Taqiyya has often come up here at the 'Corner and Traveler has put together how, why and where the justification comes from for this in Islam. Islamic organization are old hands at using this method of lying and deception. CAIR is one of the worst offenders. What is even more tagic is how our elected officlials and most of the public in the United States are fooled by this tactic. Taqiyya is used to disarm Islam's enemies. The phrase 'smoke and mirrors' fits quite nicely. I have yet to meet a Muslim I would trust, and yes I have met quite a few. I know there are good, honest ones out there. I just wish they would speak up. We know why they cannot.

By Traveler

Most religions respect the truth and forbid lying. However Islam is different.

Allah is 'the best of deceivers' (Qu’ran 3.54), and since the highest goal of Islamic ethics is to spread Islam by any means whatsoever,
it is hardly surprising that lying and deceit should be quite acceptable if carried out for the benefit of Islam.

"War is Deceit", said Muhammad, and Islam is always at war with the infidel until Islam dominates.

This 'Holy Lying' is known as taqiyya (sometimes spelled taqiya or taquiya) - This may take many forms, including outright lies, feigned moderation, and condemnation of terrorist attacks to the Infidel while rejoicing with fellow Muslims.

From the Qur’an:

Qur'an (16:106) - Establishes that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.

Qur'an (3:28) - This verse tells Muslims not to take those outside the faith as friends, unless it is to "guard themselves."

Qur'an (9:3) - "...Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters..." The dissolution of oaths with the pagans who remained at Mecca following its capture. They did nothing wrong, but were evicted anyway.

Qur'an (40:28) - A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must "hide his faith" among those who are not believers.

Qur'an (2:225) - "Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts"

Qur'an (66:2) - "Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths"

Qur'an (3:54) - "And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers." The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. (See also 8:30 and 10:21)

Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean that there are circumstances when a Muslim may be "compelled" to deceive others for a greater purpose.

From the Hadith:

Bukhari (52:269) - "The Prophet said, 'War is deceit.'" The context of this is thought to be the murder of Usayr ibn Zarim and his thirty unarmed men by Muhammad's men after he "guaranteed" them safe passage (see Additional Notes below).

Bukhari (49:857) - "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar." Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.

Bukhari (84:64-65) - Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an "enemy."

Bukhari (52:271) - Recounts the murder of a poet, Ka'b bin al-Ashraf, at Muhammad's insistence. The men who volunteered for the assassination used dishonesty to gain Ka'b's trust, pretending that they had turned against Muhammad. This drew the victim out of his fortress, whereupon he was brutally slaughtered despite putting up a ferocious struggle for his life.

From Islamic Law:

Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746 - 8.2) - "Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible ( when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory... it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression...

"One should compare the bad consequences entailed by lying to those entailed by telling the truth, and if the consequences of telling the truth are more damaging, one is entitled to lie.

♦Here are some of the ploys, arguments, logical fallacies and diversionary tactics used by taqiyya tacticians:

[1] Taqiyya about taqiyya.

Muslims deny that taqiyya exists, or that it is used to deceive infidels. 'There is no such thing as Taqiya' (or 'Taqiyya is something I never heard of and I had to go and look it up')

[2] Playing the race card and guilt by association.

An accusation of racism is such a trump card that Jihadists will play it whenever they can. Despite Islam not being a race, any criticism of Islam immediately gets the knee-jerk retaliation of 'racism'.

For example; 'You are expressing the same views about Islam as racists, therefore you are a racist.' This is similar logic to to 'Communists believe two and two make four. You believe two and two make four. Therefore you are a Communist'.

[3] Godwin's Law

a special (and inevitable) version of guilt by association with racism used in online discussions, whereby the first person to invoke Hitler or the Nazis wins the argument. The 'logic' is something like: CRITICISM OF ISLAM = RACISM = NAZISM
Therefore, if you criticise Islam you are a Nazi.

[4] Circular reasoning

'The Koran says it is the word of God. So whatever it says must be true. Therefore it is true that the Koran is the word of God because it says so'

[5] The infidels' quotes from the Koran are always taken out of context.

For example 'Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them' is taken out of context, and really means 'Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them setting fire to your house' - or something similar.

[6] Infidels can't understand the original Arabic of the Koran.

So 'Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them' is actually a Medieval Arabic expression meaning 'Help old ladies across busy streets and remember to feed the birds in winter'.

[7] Tu Quoque (you also).

'We blow people up/ behead them but you do the same,' - Normally used in attempts to refute arguments that Islam is intrinsically violent. Often refers back to the Crusades, Inquisition etc. Also 'There are equally nasty bits in the Bible'.

Yes, there are violent episodes in the Bible, but the Bible is descriptive of battles and massacres long ago, whereas the Koran is prescriptive of battles and massacres yet to come.

[8] 'Abrahamic/monotheistic faith' false kin argument.

This scam usually take the form of 'Islam is just a further development of Christianity, a brother Abrahamic/ monotheist faith.'

Of course it isn't. Islam is a travesty and perversion of Christianity in many respects, and Jesus would probably have advised the pedophile Mohammed to tie a millstone round his neck and jump into the sea. (Mark 9:42). In Islam stoning of women is still a major spectator sport, whereas Jesus forbade it (John 8:7). Human sacrifice is an abomination in Judaism and Christianity, but is encouraged in Islam.

[9] Quoting abrogated verses from the Koran in order to appear moderate.

A favorite one is 'Let there be no compulsion in religion'. This verse and many like it are actually null and void and disregarded by all Muslims (though not by gullible infidels). They are peaceful Meccan verses which are competely cancelled by later and much more violent Medinan verses.

[10] 'You owe us a debt of gratitude because Islam is the basis of Western civilisation'.

This sort of statement is usually backed up by revisionist arguments that Muslims invented everything and were responsible for the Renaissance (Sheikh Speare was a Muslim playwright etc).
In some ways this is a rather pathetic quest for significance.

Muslim culture has been moribund for the past 600 years, whereas the West has forged ahead. Muslims now want a stake in the success story by claiming they were somehow responsible for the West's development.

[11] 'A third of the world's population believe in Islam, so it deserves respect.'

- But not so long ago a third of the world's population believed the earth was flat. Numbers don't mean anything, especially when the Islamic population is the most backward and illiterate on earth.

Muslims are very keen on 'respect', but someone should tell them that respect needs to be earned.

[12] 'We are victims of Islamophobia'.

Muslims are always playing the victim, if not of racism then of the even more heinous thought-crime of ISLAMOPHOBIA. Of course there is no such thing as Islamophobia, since a phobia is an irrational fear, whereas fear of Islam as a clear and present danger is a totally rational reaction from any infidel.

From Islam: The Religion of Peace (thats a lie, right there)
