President Obama authoritatively instructs America on what is, and is not, Islam. “Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaeda’ affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syria border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” I used to think that President Obama himself was not a Muslim, only a hardened Marxist addicted to lying with proclivities toward Islam. But the more one listens to his calculated misdirection pertaining to the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL) the more convinced I become of his Islamic allegiance. He is an accomplished liar and defends Islam with a taqiyya tongue. But on second thought, perhaps both of these opinions are correct; for Islam is nothing less than Marxism with a “religious” edge.
Marxism is the worldview inspired primarily by Karl Marx, based upon a revolutionary concept of societal change that has as its goal a Totalitarian Government. These “societal changes” are accomplished by violent revolution. Vladimir Lenin, who had a sterling Marxist pedigree, advised the Communists that they were to “resort to all sorts of stratagems, maneuvers, illegal methods, evasions and subterfuge” to achieve their goals. For example, the communists define peace as “the elimination of all forms of opposition to socialism.” Lying and redefinition is communist tactic.
Wherein does this differ in principle from Islam? Remove the prayer rituals, eating regulations and mosque worship and Islam looks exactly like Marxist communism. And the common people who feel the iron fist of Islamic brutality throughout the centuries probably have not discerned any difference between a dictatorship of a Chairman Mao and a Caliphate of Ali Khamenei who is officially the “Leader of the Revolution” in Iran.
Is Obama aware of this nature of Islam? Of course he is! The stated goal of The Muslim Brotherhood, according to official government documents, is a work, “in America … a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Public knowledge this. The Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna with the one purpose of establishing an Islamic state on a global scale. Obama is perfectly aware of the nature of Islam. He just hopes the American people remain in a state of ignorance as he practices the chief Muslim tactic of “taqiyya.”
The Tactic of Taqiyya
“Taqiyya” literally means “to remain faithful” or “to guard” but in practice and in effect it really means “dissimulation.” The Quran actually instructs Muslims to practice misdirection by words (3:28; 16:106). It allows a Muslim to conform outwardly to a non-Islamic government, while inwardly “remaining faithful” until the situation is more favorable from the Islamic perspective. After all, Muhammad himself said, in the spirit of Lenin, “War is deceit.”
Warner Mackenzie points out that “taqiyya” is “employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.”
It is also important to keep in mind that taqiyya means “Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam.” This is “sanctioned in the Quran 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 in his heart.”
Obama has furthered the agenda of Islam more than any preceding leader of the free world. When Obama extended official invitations to the Muslim Brotherhood leadership when he spoke in Cairo in 2009 he was the very first American president to invite the MB to the table. This practice has continued unabated during his presidency. The official White House guest list in February 2014 included Anas Altikriti, another MB official whom Obama warmly received in the Roosevelt Room.
In 2011 Barack Obama hosted an ‘iftar’, the nightly dinner to break the Muslim fast during the month of Ramadan, at the White House. The invitation list included Mohamed Magid, the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), another organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Knowing how controversial the list would be with Magid’s name on it, Obama purposefully left his name off of the published guest list. (Daily Caller, Aug. 11, 2011). This is not ignorance on Obama’s part. It is dissimulation and misdirection.
Obama’s purpose seems clear to those who do not refuse to see. Advance the cause of totalitarian Islam. His recent televised speech follows the same pattern. “ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents…” Taqiyya.
