The Great Pretender
In Islam Lying is Permitted
"Taqiyya" is deception by Muslims and pretending to be a Christian can be an act of "taqiyya."
"Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur'an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a "religion of peace". A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart." (Islam Watch)
"To better understand Islam, one must appreciate the thoroughly legalistic nature of the religion. According to sharia (Islamic law) every conceivable human act is categorised as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory." (Islam's doctrines of deception - by Raymond Ibrahim - Jane's Islamic Affairs Analyst - October 2008)
""Common sense" or "universal opinion" has little to do with Islam's notions of right and wrong. Only what Allah (through the Quran) and his prophet Muhammad (through the Hadith) have to say about any given issue matters; and how Islam's greatest theologians and jurists – collectively known as the ulema, literally, "they who know" – have articulated it." (ibid)
"According to sharia, in certain situations, deception - also known as 'taqiyya', based on Quranic terminology, - is not only permitted but sometimes obligatory. For instance, contrary to early Christian history, Muslims who must choose between either recanting Islam or being put to death are not only permitted to lie by pretending to have apostatised, but many jurists have decreed that, according to Quran 4:29, Muslims are obligated to lie in such instances." (ibid)

"Like many Islamic practices, taqiyya was formed within the context of the culture of Arab tribalism, expansionary warfare, Bedouin raiding and inter-tribal conflict. "Taqiyya" has been used by Muslims since the 7th century to confuse, confound and divide `the enemy'." (ibid - [Islam Watch])
"According to the authoritative Arabic text, Al-Taqiyya Fi Al-Islam: "Taqiyya [deception] 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." (ibid - [Meforum]
I admit, I didn't expect that Jews would vote for Obama in such overwhelming numbers. It has been estimated by some pollsters that as many as 78% of the Jews voted for Barack Hussein Obama in the last election. Only the Blacks voted in greater numbers; almost 98%, for Obama.
I don't know how many Jews today support Israel (in Israel it isn't very many - over 80% of American Jews living in Israel voted for Romney in the 2012 election) but I suspect about as many as concern themselves with their history and the Holocaust while most of the Jews alive today do not have much knowledge of their 2,000 year history in the Diaspora nor were most of them around during the Nazi Holocaust.And, there is a third factor - overwhelmingly Jews support Democrats.
Marc Stanley (chairman of the National Jewish Democratic Council) in an Op-Ed published by JTA in November 2008, wrote: "In fact, since 1972, when exit polls were first instituted, the Republican nominee has averaged only 27 percent of the Jewish vote. In recent elections, the Republican nominee has received even less, with Jewish support at 22 percent for Bush in 2004 and 19 percent in 2000, and 16 percent for Bob Dole in 1996. In 2006, the Jewish support of Democratic congressional candidates reached 87 percent."
Even Jews like Dershowitz, who fancies himself a Centrist Democrat but has written mediocre books and articles supporting Israel (though considered right wing by extreme left wing and anti-Zionist Jews, i.e. Finklestein, Chomsky et al) - is opposed to Israeli policies which have been so important to their survival, a halt to natural expansion of the "so-called" settlements and Israel's hawkish governments, which would also include the Labor wing with regard to military and security decisions.
Many Jews I have talked to doubt the accuracy of the 78% polling estimate. I doubt the accuracy of the election. The caucuses were rigged. There is little doubt that if the truth about Obama was ever disclosed by a media willing (and able) to report the truth about Obama he may not have won the election at all. I don't need to go into all the reasons for my views about this here; I have done so before (See the Crypt).
The choice should have been to vote for the hero, not the zero. Obama's record is capricious and disgraceful; his friends antisemitic and anti-Israel - and Barack Hussein Obama is now on the job in training. OJT doesn't cut it in this job - and his words are an affront to Jews and a betrayal of the American partnership with the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel.
For older American Jews it just still about Israel, but for most of them who are younger Jews it was not about Israel.
In Commentary (Commentary Mag), "Why Jews Are Voting Obama," Shmuel Rosner - 10.22.2008 wrote:
"Commentators have suggested that Jews' concern for Israel may well serve to diminish their enthusiasm for the Democratic candidate. Indeed, Jews do care about the Israel-Palestine conflict more than other Americans. Yet, with that said, the Israel issue ranked 8th out of 15 issues in importance as a presidential election consideration for Jewish respondents. Aside from the economy (a prime issue of concern for the vast majority of respondents), ahead of Israel on Jewish voters' minds were such matters as health care, gas prices and energy, taxes, and education. Ranking just below Israel in importance for Jewish respondents were appointments to the Supreme Court and the environment. In fact, when asked to name their top three issues, just 15% of Jewish respondents chose Israel as one of the three, and these were heavily Orthodox Jews."
He continues, "While their political views tending in the liberal direction help explain their support for Obama, and their concern for Israel may actually pull them in the other direction, political views alone cannot explain their high levels of Democratic vote intention. Neither can the major socio-demographic variables. Rather, their vote intentions are a product of their political identities - their long-standing association with the liberal camp and the Democratic Party."
Obviously many Jews have not been thinking about the implications of their vote for Obama. They assimilate and become too comfortable. No matter that antisemitism is on the increase and their vote for Obama was a betrayal of Israel just as Obama is demonstrating his incompetence as president and disregard for Israeli security. He placates and appeases enemies and imposing his will on Israel to give up land for peace is a prescription for the destruction of the State of the Jews, not their survival.
There may have been other reasons for Jews to vote for a Democrat, but Obama wasn't one of them. Obama is a pretender to the job. But lest we forget, George W. Bush was not so terrific for Israel either. He was the first president to declare a two state solution and to call on Israel to stop settlement activity. It is not certain that any candidate would be good for the Jews, but Obama would be far worse; just look at who he has associated with, Jew-haters from Ayers, Rev Wright, General Merrill McPeak, Rashid Khalidi and dozens of others. You can know a lot about a person by the company he keeps. Having Jewish advisers doesn't make up for (nor cancel out) antisemitic mentors, friends and supporters. He didn't throw them under the bus; he just doesn't mention them now. It will be the Jews he throws under the bus. His style might be compelling but his actions are ignorant of Israel's existential risks and a substantial disadvantage to Israel's ability to survive.
Joseph Farah in "Between the Line" at World Net Daily says, "It's the 1930s all over again. This time, it's the enlightened liberal voices of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who are telling Jews where they can live, how they can live and how far they must bend if they want to live at all."
He is right; it is the 30s all over again.......
Farah also says,
"Think about what I am saying: It is the official policy of the Palestinian Authority that all Jews must get off the land! Why is the United States supporting the creation of a new, racist, anti-Semitic hate state? Why is the civilized world viewing this as a prescription for peace in the region? Why is this considered an acceptable idea?"
Joseph Farah writes:
"I hope my Jewish friends remember this well. Many of them voted for Barack Obama. Many of them voted for Hillary Clinton. These are not your friends. These are the same kinds of people who turned away ships of Jewish refugees from Germany in the 1940s. These are the same kinds of people who appeased Adolf Hitler at Munich. These are the same kinds of people who made the reformation of the modern state of Israel so difficult."
He continues, "No more ethnic cleansing. No more official anti-Semitism accepted. No more Jew-bashing. No more telling Jews where they can live, how they can - and if they can live."
Obama refuses to disclose his birth certificate (which is not a certificate of live birth - not the forged document which appeared on his website). Where are his college records and his Illinois Senate records. What do you think Obama is hiding? It seems clear to me.
His step-grandmother in Kenya said she was present at his birth in Kenya. Why is she now guarded and not being allowed to talk to reporters or investigators? Why has Barack Hussein Obama spent over a million dollars just to conceal the truth about his birth? How could he travel to Indonesia in 1981 if he only had an American passport - when it was not possible to travel to Indonesia on an American passport?
Barack Hussein Obama refuses to release the following documents:
- Occidental College records
- Columbia College records
- Columbia Thesis
- Harvard College records
- Selective Service Registration
- Medical records
- Illinois State Senate schedule
- Illinois State Senate records
- Law practice client list
- Certified Copy of original Birth certificate
- Embossed, signed paper Certification of Live Birth
- Record of baptism -- what else is he hiding? --
(also see excellent source and open discussion at: Open Government).
Some people call Andy Martin, author of the book, Obama: the Man Behind The Mask, a nutcase. Some agree with that assessment; others say it is because he asks tough questions. Andy Martin wrote the first stories focusing attention on Barack Obama's family roots. I pointed out that Obama's father and grandfather were Muslims. Under traditional Islamic law wherein descent is patrilineal, Obama himself was therefore considered a Muslim." [ibid]

"Obama called my stories about his religious "heritage" smears, and said, "Who, my father? Didn't know him. He was an agnostic." But as Tapper at ABC news points out, Obama has now become "President Muslim," even bragging about his "Muslim" dad in his autobiography.
Under Judaism, religion descends through the mother. Under Islam, it is through the father.
I can't say with certitude that Obama is a Muslim, even if he appears to be. I can't say positively that he intends to destroy America from the inside even if it appears that way and what he is doing to American is intentionally orchestrated by him and others to tear this country down but it most certainly appears that way. You and I will have to wait and see and we MUST continue to challenge his destructive positions and demand also that he establish his bone fides, that he is who he says he is even though he appears not to be; he is a pretender who has managed to obscure truth. I think we do need hope and change, - "hope" we can survive Barack Hussein Obama and "change" to be safe through strength, a vanguard for democracy and freedom. I also "hope" it isn't too late.
"So-called "moderate" Muslims – or, more specifically, secularised Muslims – do not closely adhere to sharia, and therefore have little to dissemble about. On the other hand, "radical" Muslims who closely observe sharia law, which splits the world into two perpetually warring halves, will always have a "divinely sanctioned" right to deceive, until "all chaos ceases, and all religion belongs to Allah" (Quran 8:39)."
