Four Arabic Words Every Infidel Must Know

This is a must read for newcomers and surface gliders of the pernicious groupthink of Islam and old hats alike. In fact I had never heard of two words of the four after seven years of fairly heavy reading with eyes wide open and a mind ready to critique the ugly morality Islam has spent on Muslims and non-Muslims for nearly 1400 years.

Let this be a lesson. There is always something new and revolting about Islam to discover before it's too late...

In 539 BC, King Belshazzar of Babylon saw a dismembered hand-written four prophetic words on the wall. This "handwriting on the wall was finally interpreted by the prophet Daniel as predicting the fall of the kingdom. He was right. Babylon fell to the Medes-Persians that very night."

Like the "handwriting on the wall" that Prophet Daniel had interpreted, there are four Arabic words, which could lead to submission of the entire world to Islam, if non-Muslims do not fully understand their meaning and implications. Those words are taqiyya, tawriya, kitman and muruna.

Each of these words describes a different style of deception used by Muslims when discussing Islam or their activities as Muslims.

Mohammed famously uttered, "War is deceit." (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 52, Nr.268). The Quran boasts that Allah is the "master of all scheming" (Quran 13:42) and that he is "profound in his machinations" (Quran 8:30). Western civilizations are not accustomed to dealing with people, who have developed deception into an art form. Knowledge is power, and the best way to combat the Islamist agenda is to say, "We know the method of your lying. You can stop now!"

Taqiyya

The Kaaka Meteorite
The Kaaka Meteorite
Taqiyya is defined as dissimulation about one's Muslim identity. It originates from the verse in the Quran that says, "Let believers not make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful—he that does has nothing to hope for from Allah—except in self-defense [illaan tattaqoo minhum tuqatan (Quran 3:28)].

This "self-defense" justifies dissimulation. As you might imagine this particular tool of the Islam faith is a powerful one when used to disarm Infidels of notions that Islam is not a religion of peace because of this fact or that fact, they will never admit as a character flaw of Islam, or its policing mechanism called Sharia Law. It is the Islamic Sharia Law that no Muslim can avoid that provides, "When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory."

Reliance of the Traveller. Section r8.2 PERMISSIBLE LYING. The Prophet said: "He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar"). Examples include lying to protect Islam or a Muslim.

Tawriya

Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called "creative lying" or where appropriate "lying under oath". It is OK to break the intent of the oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath.

Reliance of the Traveller. Section o19.1 If one swears "I will not eat this wheat," but then makes it into flour or bread (and eats it), one has not broken one's oath.

Reliance of the Traveller. Section o19.5 When a person swearing an oath about something (in the future, affirming or denying that it will occur) includes the expression "in sha' Allah ("if Allah will"), before finishing the oath, then the oath is not broken in any event if he thereby intends to provide for exceptions.

tawriyaHow does this work? Suppose someone protests that Surah 1 of the Quran demeans Christians and Jews, because it is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day to keep them from the path of“those with whom God is angry” and “those who have lost their way”.

A Muslim might respond, “Surah 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practicing tawriya, because while Surah 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, but he knows full-well that the words "those" refer to Jews and Christians.

Another example would be when a Muslim responds to your greeting of "Merry Christmas!" He might say, "I wish you the best." In your mind, you think he has returned a Christmas greeting. In actuality, he has expressed his wish for you to convert to Islam; he wishes the best for you which, in his view, is becoming a Muslim. This principle of tawriya is also at play, when prominent Muslims decry killing on innocents. To a Muslim, only Muslims are innocent. The infidels have rejected Allah, the High Most God, and therefore are not innocent.

Kitman

Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. The most common example of this is when a Muslim says that jihad really refers to an internal, spiritual struggle. He is not telling “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”, as witnesses are sworn to do in U.S. courts.

Often, kitman results in a gross distortion of the truth. In the example given, the Quran uses jihad and its derivatives 59 times. Of those, only 16 (27%) could be considered “internal” with no object as the target of the struggle based on the context of the surah.

Another common form of kitman is to quote only the few peaceful passages from the Quran, knowing full-well that that passage was later abrogated by a more militant,contradictory verse.kitman

Here is an excellent example: "There is no compulsion in religion." (Quran 2:256)

"Are they seeking a religion other than Allah's, when every soul in the heavens and earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?" (Quran 3:83)

Another example: "Permission to take up arms is hereby given to those who are attacked, because they have been wronged." (Quran 22:39)

"When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere for them." (Quran 9:5)

And another example: "Anyone who kills a human being... it shall be as though he has killed all mankind. ...If anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he has saved the lives of all mankind..." (Quran 5:32)

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah... that they should bemurdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned;" (Quran 5:33)

Muruna

Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings. The justification for this kind of deception is a somewhat bizarre interpretation of Quran 2:106, which says, “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or similar.”

Thus, Muslims may forget some of the commands in the Quran, as long as they are pursuing a better command. Muslims striving to advance Islam, therefore, can deviate from their Islamic laws in order to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and place their trust in their Muslim counterpart.

At times, Muslims practice muruna in the same way a chameleon changes colors to avoid detection. Muslims will sometimes shave off their beards, wear western clothing, or even drink alcohol to blend in with non-Muslims. Nothing is more valuable these days to the Islamists than a blue-eyed Caucasian Muslim willing to engage in terrorism.

Another common way of using muruna is for a Muslim to marry a non-Muslim or to behave like a non-Muslim so their true agenda will not be suspected.

Huma Abedin, Muslim Brotherhood?
Huma Abedin
The 9/11 hijackers visited strip clubs and bars during their off-times while taking classes in the U.S. to fly airplanes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon,and the White House. Many Americans believe that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's aide, Huma Abedin, married Jewish Congressman Anthony Weiner at least in part to burnish her security credentials so she could infiltrate the highest levels of the Administration, speculating on the fact that her father and her brother hold high rank among the Muslim Brotherhood...

The implications of these highly-honed tactics of deception could be enormous for unassuming Western societies. Twenty years ago, psychologist Paul Ekman wrote an insightful book, "Telling Lies," which demonstrated that people give off recognizable clues when they are practicing deceit. Their consciences cause them, involuntarily,to sweat or raise their voices or make other recognizable gestures.

However, Dr. Ekman’s research was exclusively with people from Western cultures. Muslims, on the other hand, show no discernible signs when they are being deceitful because there is no feeling of guilt. In their minds they are doing exactly what Allah wants them to do to advance Islam. Because any Western person who has raised children knows almost intuitively when someone is lying, so they assume they can do that in all cases. Unfortunately, those same Western people can be easily duped by Islamic deceit because there are no tell-tale signs in the deceiver.

Mosab Hassan Yousef
Mosab Hassan Yousef
Another example of playing muruna to the tease of perfection is Mosab Hassan Yousef, self-proclaimed "The Son of Hamas".

Yousef, the son of a jailed Hamas terrorist leader and MP, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, the most popular figure in that extremist Islamic organization. Mosab, as a young man, assisted his father for years in his political activities. He converted to Christianity and operated under cover in the service of Israel's intelligence agency for a decade. Yousef reveals this information in his book, Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices.

Mosab however, did not convert to what the West would recognize as Christianity, but to a fiery, Palestinian brand of the faith that is vehemently anti-Israel. According to Mosab, his main goal in coming to the U.S. is to infiltrate the main source of international support for Israel: the American church. From an interview with Al-Arabiya:

"During my tours in universities and even churches, [I found] the real support for Israel stems from the church in the West... We need to understand the difference between "revenge" and "resistance" and once the Palestinians do, we will have our victory against Israel."

Hopefully, this article will be a wake-up call to the unsuspecting infidels. Trust but verify—as was an old American strategy in dealing with potentially hostile parties—is the way to go in dealing with Islamists.

    Past Observations On Present Problems

    Thomas-Jefferson
    Thomas Jefferson

    IT'S ABOUT TIME YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS were made aware of the plethora of remarks we have coming from the likes of Winston Churchill, John Quincy Adams, John Wesley, Theodore Roosevelt, Sri Aurobindo, William Gladstone, Arthur Schopenhauer, the Nazis themselves and the rest of those who made famous quotes about Islam, and on top of this, make them aware of what of Ayatollah Khomeini and other Muslims have to say about Islam and how its adherents are to handle infidels. They ought to be damned shocked. Past observations on present problems with this moribund religion should be a starting point for those Westerners naively sympathetic to today's jihadists.

    • "Hatred of the non-Muslim is the pivot of Islamic existence." —Anwar Sheikh
    • "Since Islam regards non-Muslims as on a lower level of belief and conviction, if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim…then his punishment must not be the retaliatory death, since the faith and conviction he possesses is loftier than that of the man slain... "Islam and its peoples must be above the infidels, and never permit non-Muslims to acquire lordship over them." — Sultanhussein Tabandeh, A Muslim Commentary on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1970.
    • “The most successful lecherous man who used religion for his personal gain is Prophet Mohammed. Islam is a cult with its complete irrational belief in Allah created by Mohammed who was a liar, thief, murderer and rapist till his last breath”. —Dr Khushwant Singh
    • ”Allah is a cruel tyrant, a barbaric killer and a violent despot. Islamic Umma is the biggest criminal gang on earth and Allah is leader and guide of that criminal gang and is trying to establish himself as the God of the world (not of the universe) with the help of the mujahidin through terror and bloodshed”. —Dr R. Brahamchari

    Q & A Masking On A Summer Day

    Muslim Rank And File
    Someone named Willie questions with jarring simplicity:

    The Bellicose Augur? This all seems very alarmist. Countless men before you have made the same sort of statements about other immigrant groups and each time they have been wrong. What makes you so certain that you're right in this case?

    Other immigrant groups, unlike Islam, didn't and don't have a blueprint for militant supremacist expansionism made more dangerous by a trans-national sense of brotherhood and concrete ways to network internationally to facilitate plans to attack non-Muslims; nor do other immigrant groups have a totalitarian fanaticism expressed in myriad ways which all conduce to the various violent attacks on non-Muslims that have been reoccurring, after a respite of a couple of centuries, all over the globe.

    Muslim Bullies Threaten UK Schools

    This from the fog-infested British Isles where Islam has reached numbers enough to put spring into their own hollow steps and a special venom on their taquiyya-torqued tongues.

    Muslim bullies threaten UK schools. "Erica Connor claims her bosses did nothing as a group of Muslim governors tried to force her to change the school curriculum." She also says she was “harassed” by the four-strong team as they demanded the pupils be taught more about Allah and Islam. And they tried to “railroad” her into linking up with the local mosque and focusing on Muslim worship, says the 57-year-old head, who has taken her fight to London’s High Court." She said she felt under personal attack when investigating bosses branded her “unresponsive to the needs of the faith community”, adding: “This was racism towards me. I felt that, had I been a Muslim head, things would have been conducted in a different way.

    “I felt that they didn’t have the courage to stand by me in this.”

    Erica, who says she is so depressed she may never work again, reckons bosses should have done a lot more to protect her and New Monument School.

    The more Muslims in one's nation the more intimidation, even for control of the schools. Then there's that awesome matter of the loss of freedom of speech that's being pushed through the IOC and UN behind the unified tactics of the 57 Muslim nations.

    The United States should abandon the impotent Islamic tool called the United Nations like the League of Nations before it, and turn out the lights on the New York City apparatus. Frankly, to scan the global politik, sniff the air, and come to one's clearest sensibilities, it is no large leap to realize we in the West are living in a post UN world.

    Peace And Murder The Islamic Way

    cair-oh - wahhaj
    CAIR is a duplicitous organization with local chapters all across America...

    Every time someone calls out Muslims on their mad sadistic violence, their widespread and totalitarian oppression, their sickening brutality, and their murderous spasms of terrorism—all taking place in every culture they have won by the sword or have immigrated to in fairer times—the person pointing out the historical and evidenced obvious is derided as "racist" or "stirring up trouble." Not a molecule of peace in them. Really? Is it racist to wonder how Muslims managed to pick fights with Buddhist Thailand? Or the Catholic Philippines? Or to point out the old reel about how people who question the average Muslim's tendency to immediately fly off the handle and start killing people whenever their "sacred" beliefs are questioned just need more "education" about Islam falls on its face when it turns out the more you learn about Islam, the more obvious the roots of terrorism become? Peace and murder the Islamic way ride the same wafer into and out of the mouths of these wicked pretenders to the paradise they preach.

    One can fill a library (which would serve as just cause to be immediately burned down by suicide bombers) with all the failed rationalizations spewed by Western apologists for Islamic terror.

    • Terrorism is "just caused by poverty and lack of options." Last sighting of this excuse: sometime around when a bunch of British Muslim doctors tried to blow up Heathrow.
    • Terrorism is a "natural" reaction to things that may or may not have happened hundreds of years ago, like the Crusades or the "loss" of Spain. Last sighting of this excuse: Right around the time Muslim terrorists started attacking Thailand, which contrary to some accounts actually did not join King Richard in his march on the Holy Land.
    • Terrorism is a response to the invasion of Iraq. Last sighting of this excuse: Right around the time Muslim terrorists started attacking the Philippines, which doesn't exactly have a huge presence in the Middle East (unless you count all the Filipino housemaids trapped in servitude there).

    The list goes on and on. The excuses keep changing, but the blazingly obvious tie between Islam and terrorism remains the same. Why? Well, as Fitna points out, the Koran REQUIRES it of Muslims. This is quite different from the "Uh, the Bible has bad stuff too" saw—the Bible recounts ancient historical detail, while the Koran mandates violence of its modern day adherents. That's precisely why Islam has cornered the world market on terrorism in a way that would have world monopolists like Microsoft or ALCOA green with envy. And, of course, if you point it out then Muslims prove your point by killing you over it.

    But you knew this. Really, the interesting question is why far too many Westerners are so insistent on avoiding the obvious, preferring instead quickening knee-jerk reactions, twisting themselves into sporty little knots postulating how there must be some secret reason for constant Islamic violence besides, you know, uh, the ISLAM part. My suspicion: cowardice. After all, if you acknowledge the problem, you might have to actually confront it, something that was bred out of Europeans in the 1950s and us Americans in the 1970s. It's easier to just pretend it's the fault of the tolerant, open society, rather than the repressive 7th century political ideology that respects nothing but its own edicts. The Left and our media, even our conservative media and leadership are betraying centuries of Western enlightenment out of some perverse "respect" for a violent movement that has zero respect for them. It'd be hilarious if the end results aren't sure to be so tragic.

    The Trouble With Islam

    synogmecca
    Trouble, just plain trouble...

    Tawfik Hamid in Opinion Journal speaks truth to power:

    Trouble. Indeed, there is much that is clearly wrong with the Islamic world. Women are stoned to death and undergo clitorectomies. Gays hang from the gallows under the approving eyes of the proponents of Shariah, the legal code of Islam. Sunni and Shia massacre each other daily in troubled Iraq. Palestinian mothers teach 3-year-old boys and girls the troubled ideal of martyrdom. One would expect the orthodox Islamic establishment to evade or dismiss these complaints, but less happily, the non-Muslim priests of enlightenment in the West have come, actively and passively, to the Islamists' defense. Trouble.

    It is vital to grasp that traditional and even mainstream Islamic teaching accepts and promotes violence. Shariah, for example, allows apostates to be killed, permits beating women to discipline them, seeks to subjugate non-Muslims to Islam as dhimmis and justifies declaring war to do so. It exhorts good Muslims to exterminate the Jews before the "end of days." The near deafening silence of the Muslim majority against these barbaric practices is evidence enough that there is something fundamentally wrong. Trouble.

    The grave predicament we face in the Islamic world is the virtual lack of approved, theologically rigorous interpretations of Islam that clearly challenge the abusive aspects of Shariah. Unlike Salafism, more liberal branches of Islam, such as Sufism, typically do not provide the essential theological base to nullify the cruel proclamations of their Salafist counterparts. And so, for more than 20 years I have been developing and working to establish a theologically-rigorous Islam that teaches peace.

    Yet it is ironic and discouraging that many non-Muslim, Western intellectuals—who unceasingly claim to support human rights—have become obstacles to reforming Islam. Political correctness among Westerners obstructs unambiguous criticism of Shariah's inhumanity. They find socioeconomic or political excuses for Islamist terrorism such as poverty, colonialism, discrimination or the existence of Israel. What incentive is there for Muslims to demand reform when Western "progressives" pave the way for Islamist barbarity? Indeed, if the problem is not one of religious beliefs, it leaves one to wonder why Christians who live among Muslims under identical circumstances refrain from contributing to wide-scale, systematic campaigns of terror.

    Politicians and scholars in the West have taken up the chant that Islamic extremism is caused by the Arab-Israeli conflict. This analysis cannot convince any rational person that the Islamist murder of over 150,000 innocent people in Algeria—which happened in the last few decades—or their slaying of hundreds of Buddhists in Thailand, or the brutal violence between Sunni and Shia in Iraq could have anything to do with the Arab-Israeli conflict.

    Western appeasement of their Muslim communities has exacerbated the problem. During the four-month period after the publication of the Muhammad cartoons in a Danish magazine, there were comparatively few violent demonstrations by Muslims. Within a few days of the Danish magazine's formal apology, riots erupted throughout the world. The apology had been perceived by Islamists as weakness and concession.

    Worst of all, perhaps, is the anti-Americanism among many Westerners. It is a resentment so strong, so deep-seated, so rooted in personal identity, that it has led many, consciously or unconsciously, to morally support America's enemies.

    Progressives need to realize that radical Islam is based on an antiliberal system. They need to awaken to the inhumane policies and practices of Islamists around the world. They need to realize that Islamism spells the death of liberal values. And they must not take for granted the respect for human rights and dignity that we experience in America, and indeed, the West, today.

    Well-meaning interfaith dialogues with Muslims have largely been fruitless. Participants must demand&@151;but so far haven't&@151;that Muslim organizations and scholars specifically and unambiguously denounce violent Salafi components in their mosques and in the media. Muslims who do not vocally oppose brutal Shariah decrees should not be considered "moderates."

    Western feminists duly fight in their home countries for equal pay and opportunity, but seemingly ignore, under a façade of cultural relativism, that large numbers of women in the Islamic world live under threat of beating, execution and genital mutilation, or cannot vote, drive cars and dress as they please. Trouble.

    The tendency of many Westerners to restrict themselves to self-criticism further obstructs reformation in Islam. Americans demonstrate against the war in Iraq, yet decline to demonstrate against the terrorists who kidnap innocent people and behead them. Similarly, after the Madrid train bombings, millions of Spanish citizens demonstrated against their separatist organization, ETA. But once the demonstrators realized that Muslims were behind the terror attacks they suspended the demonstrations. This example sent a message to radical Islamists to continue their violent methods.

    All of this makes the efforts of Muslim reformers more difficult. When Westerners make politically-correct excuses for Islamism, it actually endangers the lives of reformers and in many cases has the effect of suppressing their voices. Tolerance does not mean toleration of atrocities under the umbrella of relativism. It is time for all of us in the free world to face the reality of Salafi Islam or the reality of radical Islam will continue to face us. Trouble.
