Of all the points presidential hopeful Ben Carson made in defense of his position that he “would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” the most poignant was his referencing of taqiyya, one of Islam’s doctrines of deception.
According to Carson, whoever becomes president should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran”:
“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said, referencing the Islamic law derived from the Koran and traditions of Islam. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”
Carson said that the only exception he’d make would be if the Muslim running for office “publicly rejected all the tenants of Sharia and lived a life consistent with that.”
“Then I wouldn’t have any problem,” he said.
However, on several occasions Carson mentioned “Taqiyya,” a practice in the Shia Islam denomination in which a Muslim can mislead nonbelievers about the nature of their faith to avoid religious persecution.
“Taqiyya is a component of Shia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals,” Carson said.
Considering that the current U.S. president has expunged all reference to Islam in security documents and would have Americans believe that Islamic doctrine is more or less like Christianity, it is refreshing to see a presidential candidate referencing a little-known but critically important Muslim doctrine.
However, the widely cited notion that taqiyya is only a Shia doctrine needs to be corrected. This is false, and it lets the vast majority of the world’s Muslims, the Sunnis, off the hook.
According to Sami Mukaram, one of the world’s foremost authorities on taqiyya:
Taqiyya is of fundamental importance in Islam. Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it … We can go so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream … Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.[i]
Taqiyya is often associated with the Shias because, as a minority group interspersed among their Sunni rivals, they have historically had more reason to dissemble. Today, however, Sunnis living in the West find themselves in the place of the Shia. Now they are the minority surrounded by their historic enemies — Western “infidels” — and so they too have plenty of occasion to employ taqiyya.
"If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, and if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. And oh by the way, my administration is going to demonstrate the most transparency of any administration in American history . . . and as for the heinous internet video that inspired the Benghazi riot that killed four Americans including our ambassador . . . "
Sounds like a whole lot of taqiyya to me.
Taquiyya ....boloney.....BS....it is all one and the same!
You are absolutely dead on in the above statement.......however too many Americans are still brain dead and are likely to stay that way until it is too late. I know many people like this .... they are all around me.......some in my own family !
AMEN!! Spot on!! The sheep(sheeple) need to wake up! Muslims are just waiting to destroy us, and others as they promise to take over the world. They are in almost all the countries now. I don't trust any of them and never have...they have no conscience or heart...they are the black-eyed Devils!,
One of the left/prog/comm/lib/ 'rules' is lie, and then lie about lying. Sounds like taqiyya to me. . . .
We can't trust a Muslim at the head of this country.
When Muslims get married (for instance), they marry under Coran law and repudiate under Coran (Koran, Quran) law. They don't divorce as Western people do. They are devoted and submitted first to their religion for whatever personal or business commitment they have. In France, lawmakers made illegal for Muslims to repudiate and get a second spouse. They are imposed a civil divorce with a judge. I don't know it there is such law in the USA. We have to start a "fight" here, and support people like Carson and Trump. Islam and Muslims are the worst enemy of our Western civilization. They are anti US, they'll never be a possible solution to govern the West. It's NO NO!
Muslims hide their game to us (they try) and this is the danger.
So, the question comes out again. Is Obama using Taqiyya to cover his true self? I believe he is. He has so far been caught in several lies and deceptions and continues to avoid pointing the finger at Islam.
In many ways there is something wrong here and lots of red flags.
Either Obama is a big dummy, either he's helping somebody; questions are: WHO and WHY?
I told you he was going down!!
JOHN BOEHNER RESIGNS!!!!!
BEST NEWS IN A LONG TIME!!!
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
