    A Muslim ruler must: “Engage in jihad (fight against Jews and Christians)”
    Kind of like Obama? Stabs Israel every which way, then turns his back on Christians who are being slaughtered by the jihad in Irak, Syria, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, etc, won’t even acknowledge that it’s happening. It’s a genocide and he won’t even talk about it and neither will his little Samantha Power. He couldn’t even bring himself to call the 23 Coptic Christians who were decapitated on the beach in Libya Christian. He could’t even do them that one honor. They died rather than renounce their faith, and he couldn’t even mention that they were Christian. Just like he won’t call the Fort Hood massacre what it is: an act of Islamic terrorism.
    Why, then, does it cause such uproar when people speculate that he’s a Muslim? I’m not saying he is (as I think he’s an atheist) but he clearly prefers Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood and all things Islamic to JudaeoChristian Western values and universal human rights. And he seeks to help the jihadis at every turn.

    This article by Raymond Ibrahim explains well why a Muslim should NOT be President of USA -Reason -Taqqiya

    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.

    Making Muslims swear on Bibles would not be any defense against taqiyya. As long as their allegiance to Islam is secure in their hearts, taqiyya allows Muslims to behave like non-Muslims. Praying before Christian icons, wearing crosses, making the sign of the cross — anything short of actually killing a Muslim could be allowed. (In several instances, Muslims in the U.S. military exposed their true loyalties when they reached the point of having to fight fellow Muslims in foreign nations.[ii])

    For those with a discerning eye, taqiyya is all around us. Muslim refugees have pretended to convert to Christianity (in the past and the present); an Islamic gunman gained entrance inside a church by feigning interest in Christian prayers. Examples abound on a daily basis.

    Consider the following anecdote from Turkey. In order to get close enough to a Christian pastor to assassinate him, a group of Muslims — including three women — feigned interest in Christianity, attended his church for over a year, and even participated in baptism ceremonies. Said the pastor, Emre Karaali:

    These people had infiltrated our church and collected information about me, my family and the church and were preparing an attack against us. … Two of them attended our church for over a year and they were like family.

    If some Muslims are willing to go to such lengths to eliminate the already downtrodden Christian minorities in their midst, does anyone doubt that a taqiyya-practicing Muslim presidential candidate might have no reservations about swearing on a stack of Bibles?

    Precedents for such treachery litter the whole of Islamic history, and begin with the Muslim prophet himself.

    During the Battle of the Trench (627 AD), which pitted Muhammad and his followers against several non-Muslim tribes collectively known as “the Confederates,” a Confederate called Naim bin Masud went to the Muslim camp and converted to Islam. When Muhammad discovered the Confederates were unaware of Masud’s deflection to Islam, he counseled him to return and to try to get his tribesmen to abandon the siege. “For war is deceit,” Muhammad assured him.

    Masud returned to the Confederates without their knowledge that he had switched sides, and began giving his former kin and allies bad advice. He also intentionally instigated quarrels between the various tribes until, thoroughly distrusting each other, they disbanded and lifted the siege, allowing an embryonic Islam to grow. (Here, a Muslim site extols this incident for being illustrative of how Muslims can subvert non-Muslims.)

    If a Muslim were running for president of the U.S. in the hopes of ultimately subverting America to Islam, he could, in Carson’s words, easily be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran” and “publicly reject all the tenants of Sharia.” Indeed, he could claim to be a Christian and attend church every week.

    It speaks well about Carson that he is aware of, and not hesitant to mention, taqiyya. But that doctrine’s full ramifications regarding how much deception it allows, and its practice by all Muslim denominations, not just the Shia, still needs greater awareness.

    The chances of that happening are dim. Already “mainstream media” like the Washington Post have, incorrectly, taken Carson to task for “misunderstanding” taqiyya – that is, for daring to be critical of anything Islamic. These outlets could benefit from learning more about Islam and deception per the below links:

    My expert testimony being used in a court case to refute “taqiyya about taqiyya.”

    The even more elastic doctrine of tawriya, which allows Muslims to deceive fellow Muslims by lying “creatively.”

    A Muslim president of the United States might try to, in any way he could ,set up Sharia law. We American have something the is far better and superior to the Sharia law. Its the US Constitution. After all,this is America , not Iran. Furthermore, an internet site to do something about this subject. the site is bansharialaw.com

    Dear Dr. Nishant,

    You are absolutely right Muslims believe their evil actions will take them to heaven. They went to their holy city of Mecca, and they were supposed to respect one another as they prayed or as they were ready to go to the stone-throwing spot. Instead, they started pushing one another and killing their fellow Muslims in great number and had no sympathy for their dead since they believe they would directly go to heaven because they were killed as they were worshiping their bloodthirsty Allah.

    Muslims love confusions and disorders because their Allah is a god of tumult, violence, and chaos; however, the Christian God is not that type of God as Saint Paul said:

    “For God is not a God of disorder but of peace–as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people” (1st Corinthians 14:33).

    We see those migrant Muslims how they behave when a train comes to take them and how they fight to get in the train. Muslims always want to get something by force, deception, and lie.

    Only 700 Muslims died as the result of the stampede. I wish the earth had opened its mouth and swallowed up all those 2 million Muslims who went there to worship the Black Stone as it did in the time of Moses:

    “As soon as he finished saying all this, the ground under them split apart and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them, with their households and all Korath’s men and all their possessions. They went down alive into the grave, with everything they owned; the earth closed over them, and they perished and were gone from the community” (Number 16:31-33). This is what these murderous Muslims deserve!

    @ra, that Muslim guy in Brussels in your video is talking plain truth. This is some scary shit. I don’t think there is any way to stop this Muslim invasion of europe even by the Europeans themselves. I guess, we would see islamisation of Europe with sharia imposed all over, in a few decades in our life time itself.

    “Continue The Islamization Of Europe”

    Dear Assta,
    Maybe Mohammed was right, when he said devil runs in the blood of the Muslims. So they killed themselves, so as to destroy the devil. Several Muslims here, said that those killed in the stampede were the most lucky, on whom there was Allah’s grace upon them and they would definitely reach jannat!!! Its kind of a celebration in local forums, where it is presented as if those killed in stampede were martyrs, the lucky ones who were loved by Allah and so he called them back. I furthered their logic and said that maybe we should send rhinos and elephants in every haj to cause stampedes so that many more Muslims would be blessed by Allah and would reach jannat. Unfortunately, the logic was beyond their demented minds and I was removed from the group!!!.

    Let me, please, digress from the main topic and say the following words:

    The Almighty God is angry on the Arab-Muslim world for refusing to accept Jesus Christ as their only Savior and Mediator.

    Few days ago, a crane collapsed at Mecca’s grand Mosque, killing over 118 Muslims and injuring about 394 other Muslims.

    This week, the Hajj stamped killed 717 Muslim pilgrims and injured 390 of them. In Yemen on the same week, an Islamic suicide bomber dressed as a woman killed 25 Yemenites in a Mosque.

    Is this what Eid al-Adah means, the Feast of the Sacrifice?

    When all these tragedies happened, over 2 million Muslims were worshiping the false god – Allah – and kissing the Black Stone, and some of them throwing stones at the imaginary spirit – Satan, while the real Satan was in fact standing among them.

    What a folly is the Islamic religion!
