Muslim Duplicity by Peter Burrows 7/29/22 email@example.com –
Never trust a Muslim. They will lie to you and pass a polygraph while doing it. This is because Muhammad, who spoke for Allah, said it was not a sin to lie during war, and Muslims are always at war with non-Muslims, in one form or another:
Al-Jihad, (holy fighting) in Allah’s cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior (which means none has the right to be worshiped but Allah), and his religion, Islam, is propagated. – – Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. (1)
Since jihad against unbelievers is an “obligatory duty,” it is also obligatory to lie to the unbelievers if that helps the jihad. Here is what The Reliance of the Traveller (sic), “A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law,” says: When it is possible to achieve (a praiseworthy) aim by lying but not by telling the truth it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory. (My emphasis.) (2)
Most importantly, making “Allah’s Word” superior, “which means none has the right to be worshiped but Allah,” is an inherently POLITICAL as well as religious goal. In fact, Islam is a theocracy first and foremost:
“The purpose for which the Muslims are required to fight is not, as one might think, to compel the unbelievers into embracing Islam. Rather, it’s purpose is to put an end to the suzerainty of the unbelievers so that the latter are unable to rule over people. The authority to rule should only be vested in those who follow the True Faith (Islam).” (3)
The above quote is from a Twentieth Century tafsir, Tafhim al-Qur’an, written by the renowned Islamic scholar and Pakistani political figure, Sayyid Abdul A’la Mawdudi, sometimes spelled Maududi. A Tafsir is a scholarly exegesis of the Koran, and in the religion of Islam, there is NO dissent from scholarly consensus.
Mawdudi goes on to write that non-Muslims have “absolutely no right to seize the reins of power in any part of God’s earth nor to direct the collective affairs of human beings according to their own misconceived doctrines.” Anywhere non-Muslims rule Muslims, “the believers would be under an obligation to do their utmost to dislodge them from political power and to make them live in subservience to the Islamic way of life.” (4)
In a different forum, Mawdudi explained what this means in unequivocal language: “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam –. Towards this end, Islam wishes to press into service all forces which can bring about a revolution and a composite term for the use of all these forces is ‘Jihad’. To change the outlook of the people and initiate a mental revolution among them through speech or writing is a form of ‘Jihad’. To alter the old tyrannical social system and establish a new just order of life by the power of sword is also ‘Jihad’ and to expend goods and exert physically for this cause is ‘Jihad’ too.” (My emphasis.) (5)
“Jihad” thus means not just using the sword to spread Islam, but also proselytizing “through speech or writing” which, as noted, is not obligated to be truthful but just the opposite if necessary. “To expend goods” includes contributing financial support to the cause, which is helped by mandated giving to charity, called Zakat, or Zakah. This is usually set at a percentage of one’s ASSETS, not income, which is a good way to keep the zakat from fluctuating very much.
The Koran designates eight categories of zakat recipients, all of whom must be Muslims: “The alms are meant only for the poor and the needy and those who are in charge thereof, those whose hearts are to be reconciled; and to free those in bondage, and to help those burdened with debt, and for expenditure in the way of Allah and for the wayfarer. This is an obligation from Allah.” (6)
In the above, does “expenditure in the way of Allah” ring an alarm? It should. Mawdudi says it specifically means “jihad in the way of Allah,” and such funds can be used in either “persuading people to embrace (Islam) or in its later stages when the struggle assumes a combative dimension.” (7)
Note Mawdudi’s matter-of-fact acknowledgement that a “combative dimension” will eventually be needed, which is consistent with the history of the spread of Islam.
Since zakat is “an obligation from Allah,” anywhere there is a mosque in America there is a stream of funding dedicated to the destruction of our Constitutional Republic and the establishment of an Islamic theocracy, by persuasion or by force. Furthermore, Muslims who immigrate here, unless they do so to escape Islam, are not here to enjoy the freedoms we have; they are here to DESTROY those freedoms. Mawdudi, my go-to Muslim scholar when it comes to the theocratic side of Islam, had this definitive guidance for “He who emigrates in the Way of Allah:”
“It should be understood clearly that it is only permissible for a person who believes in (Islam) to live under the dominance of an un-Islamic system on one of the following conditions. First, that the believer strives to put an end to the hegemony of the un-Islamic system and to have it replaced by the Islamic system of life —. Second that he stays in a land where an un-Islamic system prevails because of his inability to depart from that land but he is utterly unhappy at living under such a system.” (8)
That the “Islamic system of life” has met with resistance since the beginning of Islam is hinted at in Verse 9:33 in the Koran, which tells us that Allah has sent Muhammad “with the guidance and the true religion that He (Allah) may make it prevail over all religions howsoever those who associate others with Allah in His divinity might detest it.” (9)
It is easy to understand why someone might “detest” living under an Islamic theocracy, where only Muslims would have political power. They would implement Islamic law, sharia, codified centuries ago, which still stones to death adulterers, amongst other niceties. If Muslims were up front about all this, it would make it extraordinarily difficult to achieve their obligatory goal: to make the rest of us “live in subservience to the Islamic way of life.”
Consequently, it is not surprising that Muslims have developed elaborate doctrines of deception for jihad in its “early stages,” which is where America is today. Muslims are only about one percent of the population and as their numbers increase, so will their militancy. On that, my friend, you can bet the rent money. (Go to religionofpeace.com for a current look at jihad in the rest of the world.)
The deceptions Muslims use fall into four general categories, and the following is a brief summary of each. The oldest form of Islamic deception is called “taqiyya,” and is defined as “prudent concealment of faith to save one’s life.” (10). It originated as a way for Shi’a Muslims to protect themselves from Sunni Muslims, but has evolved into a general term meaning “lying for the sake of Islam” or “deception when penetrating the enemy camp.” (11) As such, “taqiyya” has become the term to describe all forms of deception, including the categories described below.
A second, very common, deception is called “kitman,” which means telling only a partial truth. For example, calling zakat a charitable, and praiseworthy, requirement of Islam is kitman in two ways: one, we’re not told the funds are for Muslims only, and two, we’re not told the funds can be used in decidedly uncharitable ways, such as supporting a suicide bomber.
A third deception is called “tawriya,” and means “to employ words that give a misleading impression, meaning to intend by one’s words something that is literally true, in respect to which one is not lying” while deceiving the hearer. (12) Using words that have one meaning for Muslims but another for non-Muslims is the most common form of tawriya, and it’s almost unbelievable the extent to which it’s used without challenge.
For example, “terrorism” is defined in sharia law as the ‘killing of a Muslim without right.” (13) Consequently, for Muslims, “jihad is not terrorism.” (14) So, when Muslims denounce terrorism after an atrocity committed by a Muslim, they are engaging in tawriya.
Finally, there is “muruna,” which is when Muslims engage in non-Muslim behavior to blend in with the non-Muslim enemy. Drink, smoke, shave, have a ham sandwich, pick up ladies at the bar, etc. If done in Allah’s cause, all is forgiven. The 9/11 hijackers did just that as they prepared their attack, although I doubt they needed to.
About now, you are probably wondering if a Muslim can ever be believed, and the only time is when they are being truthful about Islam. My favorite example is Iran’s late ruler, the Ayatollah Khomeini, who declared: “Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam councils against war.” He added, “I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim!” (15)
Strong letter to follow, and stay upwind of that old boy!
The problem is that there are so many of “those who know nothing of Islam.” Muslims and their mosques have no place in any nation not already an Islamic theocracy, yet their deceptions have allowed them to gain footholds in countries around the world. The only nation fighting this trend is China. (16) It appears China will soon be one of the few nations unburdened by either renewable energy or by Muslims.
The biggest deception the Muslims employ is hiding their draconian political dogma under the guise of “religion.” There is no way Islam should enjoy the protection of the Constitution’s First Amendment, but until enough of us learn what Islam stands for, Muslims will enjoy helping us commit suicide.
