Al-Taqiya 101: On Time-Wasting Appeasement And Iranian DeceitTopics: Iran
Another day begins, another news cycle cranks up, and we awake to yet another offer for Iran from the West in an attempt to resolve the nuclear crisis - accompanied by Iran's immediate rejection - along with it's now customary, "but lets talk more". Iran's 18-year history of trying to hide weapons efforts has proven that the international community's worries about Tehran's nuclear efforts are "well founded", yet the West continues to submit itself to Iran's endless rounds of cheat, lie, deceit - taqiya, while Iran laughs behind it's doors and rushes to the development of atomic weapons.
Just when will the West realize that Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the mullahs that own him are experts in the Muslim method of conquest - taqiya, dodging the threat. Politically it means simulate whatever status you need in order to win the war against the enemy, and in this case the enemy is the non-Muslim world, particularly the U.S. and Great Britain.
What the Bush and Blair administrations must realize and be able to convince the Russians and the Chinese, is that the Iranians have absolutely no intention of altering their present course in their nuclear development program which is to make a nuclear bomb, and then clone it to infinity. Iran is expertly using taqiya, dodging the threat, saying whatever is necessary - lying, cheating and deceiving, in order to win the war against their enemy, the West, the next step of which is the development of nuclear weapons.
In "The Muslim Method Of Conquest" by Professor Walid Phares, he explains how taqiya is an often-used method by some Muslims, particularly the Islamists, in stalling for advantage :
Al-Taqiya, from the verb Ittaqu, means linguistically dodge the threat. Politically it means simulate whatever status you need in order to win the war against the enemy..And the taqiya Phares speaks of is on-going as we speak. Just look at the following two news items from todays headlines:
According to Al-Taqiya, Muslims were granted the Shar'iya (legitimacy) to infiltrate the Dar el-Harb (war zone), infiltrate the enemy's cities and forums and plant the seeds of discord and sedition. These agents were acting on behalf of the Muslim authority at war, and therefore were not considered as lying or denouncing the tenants of Islam. They were "legitimate" mujahedeen, whose mission was to undermine the enemy's resistance and level of mobilization. One of their major objectives was to cause a split among the enemy's camp. In many instances, they convinced their targeted audiences that Jihad is not aimed at them, that indigenous people are not targeted, only Bysantium power. They convinced many Jews that they will be protected from Christians, called pagans, and they convinced many Christians that Jews were the mortal enemies, because they killed Issa (Jesus). They convinced the Aramaics, Copts, and Hebrews that the enemy is Greece, and signed peace agreements with the Bysantines Greeks at the expense of Maronite Aramaics, etc.
This Jihadic agency of subversion was one of the most fascinating and efficient arms of the conquest. In less them four decades the MIddle East fell to the Arab-Islamic rule, followed by north Africa and Central Asia.
Al-Taqiya was a formidable weapon, used by the first dynasties and strategists. Today, scholars may identify it as deception. But the Jihadic deception was and still is more powerful than the James Bondian methods of Western classical intelligence tactics, for the simple reason that it has a civilizational, global dimension versus the narrow state interest of the regular Western subversive methods.
One can easily detect Taqiya in the two discourses used by Islamist strategists. On the one hand, one comprehensive Islamist theory is attempting to mobilize Middle East, and sometimes Western Christia leaders and intellectuals, against "evil Jews." We see considerable success on that level. And on the other hand, another Islamist comprehensive theory is attemting -with success also- to mobilize the Jews against "evil and pagan Christians." One can easily detect the sophisticated work of Taqiya, for the strategic objective of Islamists is to destroy the foundations of the Judeo-Christian civilization, as a prelude to the defeat of an isolated Israel.
Taqiya is winning massively because of the immense lack of knowledge among Western elites, both Jewish and Christian.
A course reversal for U.S. on Iran:
The Bush administration said Wednesday that the United States would join Europeans in talks with Iran over its nuclear program, but only if Teh ran first suspends uranium activities thought to be a cover for developing nuclear arms.And Iran's answer:
... The declaration by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was a sudden shift of decades of refusal to hold talks with Iran.
... Rice reiterated that a last-resort military option, should talks or sanctions prove futile, remained on the table.
Iran rejects US condition for nuclear talks:
Iran on Thursday rejected a conditional offer from arch-foe Washington for direct talks about its nuclear programme.And on and on we'll go until Iran's nuclear bombs are in the hands of every radical Muslim group in the world. Checkmate - Iran's Islamist dreams of conquest are complete. And the rest of us are either attending mosques, not by choice, living under sharia, or dead.
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Teheran was open to discussions with Washington, which severed ties with Iran in 1980, but would not agree to a US precondition that it stop enriching uranium, the fuel used in nuclear reactors and a vital ingredient to developing atomic bombs.
"We will not give up our nation's natural right (to enrichment), we will not hold talks over it. But we are ready to hold talks over mutual concerns," Mottaki said.
The very thought sort of makes you want to write a "Dear Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair" and ask just how damned long we're going to play the fool at the hands of Iran's expert application of taqiya to subdue the West and have the nuclear bombs he is so hellbent to obtain.
