Islam Practices to Deceive

          If there was any good way to tell in advance which Muslims intend to kill me, mine, and my America, I would truly feel sorry for them.  Why?  Islam kills Muslims off in the worst possible way, by destroying their humanity at the earliest possible age in life.  From my perspective, their lives are living hells.
          Consider the double bind Islam forces them into.  On the one hand, they are supposed to have allegiance only to Islam and the ummah, which is the world community of Muslims, and they are supposed to be strict practitioners of Islam.  Both make them detestable human beings.  Some rebel.  They want to live and let live, and to enjoy life on this earth.  They are “bad Muslims, by Islamic criteria.”  Suppose they express their desires to join the Family of Man instead of killing and conquering the Family of Man?  Who could trust them?
          From where comes this distrust?  It comes from Islam itself, which has built into itself all sorts of ways to trap Muslims permanently in its morass.  “Good Muslims,” who are “bad guys” to us because they are consistent practitioners of Islam and want to destroy us, use all sorts of official Islamic techniques to fool us into believing that they are seeking congeniality to share life on earth.  All the while, these bad guys are fooling us, to take us off guard,
so they can kill and destroy us.

          A Muslim with truly humane intentions endures the distrust engendered by the deceivers.  He can’t win, inside Islam or out.  The best course for him is to renounce Islam completely and follow up his public renunciation with consistently benevolent behavior over a very long time.  We may still be fooled by some Muslims who pretend to renounce Islam to use the renunciation as deceit and are willing to be long term “sleepers.”  However, all of life entails risk.  We must start somewhere.

          It is worth exposing the tactics of deception practiced by Islam, as we find them.  I am indebted to Counter Intelligence, Counter Espionage, and Counter Terrorism (, for the following excellent material, in “Taqiyya and kitman: The role of Deception in Islamic terrorism.” 

“Tradecraft.  Persona. Deception. Disinformation. Cover: Western operational terms and techniques.  But, Islamic terrorists have their own terms:  taqiyya (pronounced tark-e-ya): precautionary dissimulation or deception and keeping one's convictions secret and a synonymous term, kitman: mental reservation and dissimulation or concealment of
malevolent intentions...

“Taqiyya and kitman or ‘holy hypocrisy’ has been diffused throughout Arabic culture for over fourteen hundred years since it was developed by Shiites as a means of defence and concealment of beliefs against Sunni unbelievers.  As the Prophet said: 'he who keeps secrets shall soon attain his objectives.’

“The skilful use of taqiyya and kitman was often a matter of life and death against enemies; it is also a matter of life and death to many contemporary Islamic terrorists.  As so often in the history of Islam, a theological doctrine became operational.

“During the Spanish inquisition, Sunni Morison attended mass and returned home to wash their hands of the ‘holy water’.  In operational terms, taqiyya and kitman allowed the ‘mujahadeen ’ to assume whatever identity was necessary to fulfill their mission; they had doctrinal and theological and later jurisprudential sanction to  pretend to be Jews or Christians to gain access to Christian and Jewish targets: ‘the mujahadeen can take the shape of the enemy’.

“Taqiyya is common to both Shiite and Sunni Muslim discourse and has significant implications for understanding Islamic fundamentalism and terrorist operations.  The theory and practice of counter terrorism would be counter productive, indeed pointless, and even harmful, without reference to taqiyya and kitman and the crucial role of deception ranging from Islamic jurisprudence to Al Qaeda training manuals, which carry detailed instructions on the use of deception by terrorists in Western target countries.

“According to Christian ethics lying is a sin; In Islamic jurisprudence and theology, the use of taqiyya against the unbelievers is regarded as a virtue and a religious duty.

“Like many Islamic concepts taqiyya and kitman were formed within the context of the Arab-Islamic matrix of tribalism, expansionary warfare and conflict.  Taqiyya has been used by Muslims since the 7th century to confuse and split 'the enemy’.  A favored tactic was ‘deceptive triangulation’; to persuade the enemy that jihad was not aimed at them but at another enemy.  Another tactic was to deny that there was jihad at all.  The fate for such faulty assessments by the target was death.”

          We must never forget, as we expose the truth about Islam, that their best theorists and practitioners lived in, and still live in Iran.  Iran is Shia Islam territory.  Shiites broke off from Sunnis about 900 A.D. and the two factions have been in competition since.  While there are differences between Sunni and Shia Islam, they are trifles, at the level of basic principles and practices.  At the root level, they are the same.

          The best theorist of Islam has been that “fun-loving,” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.  He deposed the Shah of Iran and set up an Islamic theocratic totalitarian state in Iran.  With his approval, our embassy personnel were taken hostage in 1979.  He popularized the saying that America is the “Great Satan.”  He also issued a fatwa, a religious edict, calling for the death of Muslim author, Salman Rushdie, because he wrote a novel about Muhammad’s alleged
encounter with Satan.  The relevant Koranic verses are known as the Satanic Verses, as was Rushdie’s novel.

           Few who write about Islam note or quote Khomeini.  In fact, Iran seems to be “under-the-radar” far too much.   Amir Taheri, an Iranian journalist, wrote about Khomeini’s decades long struggle to seize power over Iran, as a stepping stone to seizing power over the world.  Khomeini practiced deceptive techniques masterfully.  In addition to taqiyyah and kitman, Khomeini employed:

Khod’eh, “which means tricking one’s enemy into a misjudgement of one’s true position.  Khomeini did not tell direct lies but used many half-truths based on well-established khod’eh tactics.”  One of his many pledges was for female equality in Iran, which he qualified with phrases such as “in accordance with Islam.”

Tanfih, “which means misleading everyone about one’s true beliefs in a hostile environment.”  These are the promises, such as UN nuclear regulatory compliance, made these days.
(From Amir Taheri, The Spirit of Allah:  Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution, Adler and Adler, ISBN: 0-917561-04-X, 1985.  Unfortunately, this book is out-of-print.) 

          The Koran and other Islamic documents sanction Muslim deception against infidels (non-Muslims).  Our take home lesson should be obvious:  Believe nothing Islamists say or state in any form.  Particularly, never believe any promise from them.  Whatever they say or do may serve to you in, so that you will drop your guard:  Many of Muhammad’s targets were murdered in just this way.  Dedicated Islamists are true “shape-shifters,” a la Star Trek. 
They use these strategies and tactics on us continuously.
          Be vigilant always.
