Islamic Principle of Al-Takeyya Infecting Nation
The Islamic principle that allows Muslims to lie under certain circumstances without fear of punishment or retribution, and it’s clearly infecting the nation’s leaders and members of the mainstream news media.
What is Al-Takkeya? In an article published at Islam Review, former Muslim Abdullah Al Araby provides a great deal of information about how lying is condoned within Islam via Al-Takeyya. Among other things, he writes the following:
Unfortunately, when dealing with Muslims, one must keep in mind that Muslims can communicate something with apparent sincerity, when in reality they may have just the opposite agenda in their hearts. Bluntly stated, Islam permits Muslims to lie anytime that they perceive that their own well-being, or that of Islam, is threatened.
During the memorial service at Fort Hood yesterday (see video below), President Barack Obama lied via omission, refusing to acknowledge the truth — that Maj. Malik Nidel Hasan, the lone shooting suspect in the killing spree that left 13 dead and 31 wounded at the Army post near Killeen, Texas, acted out his beliefs as a radical Islamic extremists.
More recently, MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan ran a faux-journalistic segment on the little-watched program, Morning Meeting (see video below). Guests Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and Jonathan Capehart, editorial writer for the Washington Post, pretended to have an intellectual discussion about the “possible motives for the Fort Hood attack.”
Al-Takeyya is alive and well in the United States. In response, Americans must be vigilant and not settle for anything but the truth from this point forward. Anything less will cost us dearly.
