Leaving Islam




Q02: Muslims repeatedly say that lying is forbidden in Islam. However, you think that when many Muslims say Islam is not violent, they are lying. The purpose of it is allegedly to fool the Westerners. How do you prove this claim?  

I already explained that Muslims have different meanings for the same words that we use. They are so convinced of the "truth" of Islam that they do not perceive Jihad/ terrorism, or dhimmitude as violence.   

There is an Islamic teaching called taqiyya. Taqiyya means deception or concealing and disguising one’s beliefs and intentions to fool the adversary. According to Muhammad all forbidden things become permissible if they are to be used for the advancement of Islam. So Muslims can lie, steal, murder and rape with complete clear conscience because they are convinced of doing the right thing. 

To understand this let me make an example. A butcher at the meat shop does not have pangs of conscience for slaughtering animals. The society accepts that he is not doing anything wrong but rather providing a service. The butcher does not feel guilty because his compass of right and wrong do not tell him that what he is doing is wrong. The same applies to all of us meat eaters. We don't feel guilty every time we eat a hamburger. A Hindu might feel very differently. He would probably feel tormented with the thought of eating beef. The difference between the Hindu and us is that we have different compasses that point to different directions. What to him is awful, to us is normal. 

Everyone has seen the videos of beheadings that Muslim Jihadis release. You see that during the most despicable acts imaginable, which is the cold blooded murder of another human being, they invoke the name of their deity Allah. This shows that they do not perceive this dastardly act as wrong. On the contrary, this is to them an act of worship. They commit these killings to please Allah.  Their compass does not tell them that they are doing anything wrong. That compass is set by the Quran which everyone, including the foolish non-Muslim appeasers respect and call "holy". So in the Muslim mind, what you and I perceive as heinous and evil is divine. Just as you don't consider yourself to be a bad person for eating hamburger, a Muslim can kill the non believers with no compunction and he does not believe that what he does is wrong. 

The life of a non-Muslim to him is worth as much as the life of a chicken is worth to you and me. We don't go around killing every chicken we see. In fact we keep them and feed them as long as they are useful to us. But we don't lose sleep when we have to slaughter them. So it is not that Muslims will necessarily go around massacring every non-Muslim. As long as these non-Muslims are useful to them, they are granted protection. In fact dhimmi means protected. The non-believers will remain protected, as long as they pay the Jizzyah "with willing submission and feel themselves subdued" 9:29

The world of Islam is a world completely distinct from ours. Muslims have a different set of values. They look at the world through the contorted mirror of Islam and everything they see is warped. That is the only reality they know. Islam is their only point of reference. Therefore when they commit the most dastardly acts such as murder of school children, they genuinely don't know that what they are doing is evil.

This makes Muslims very dangerous. What distinguishes us humans from animals is our conscience. Once our conscience is gone we lose our humanness. Without conscience, humans can be far more dangerous than beasts. Beasts kill for food, humans kill for ideology. Beast kill just enough to eat. Humans can kill endlessly.      

On 1 September 2005, Al Jazeera aired a tape featuring Mohammad Sidique Khan, one of the London bombers of 7/7, in which he said: 

I and thousands like me are forsaking everything for what we believe. Our drive and motivation doesn't come from tangible commodities that this world has to offer. Our religion is Islam, obedience to the one true God and following the footsteps of the final prophet messenger.

here is the truth coming from the mouth of the horse. Every other reason Muslims give you is an excuse. The truth is that the terrorists are motivated by an ideology. It has nothing to do with what we do. They will give you all the excused to justify their terrorism. They will blame the victim. But the truth is that they are doing all these killings because they are waging Jihad. They will continue killing us until we submit and surrender. What they want is establishment of Khalifat worldwide.   

I started warning people about the danger of Islam since 1998. Before 9/11 when Islam was still unknown to many, a Muslim sent me an email in which he chided me for revealing over the Internet the fact that Muhammad had slept with a 9 years old child. He said, even though I was no more a Muslim I owed at least that much loyalty to Islam to not make public this information. Then he ruefully lamented that the “damage has already been done”. This is typical Islamic thinking. The fact that Muhammad was a pedophile did not trouble this Muslim. What bothered him was disclosing that information and tarnishing the image of Islam. This behavior is consistent with narcissistic personality disorder. The narcissist's main concern is the preservation of his image. Deeds don't matter. Image is what counts. For Muslims image is everything. They have to preserve this image at all cost and taqiyya is the way to do it. 

You ask for proof. There are many. Imam Ghazali's authority in Islam is indisputable. He says: "When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible"[1]
