"Thanks for the Taqqiyah alert Serendip."

Recently I have been baulking at the over used phrase 'taqiyya' as it seems to be used at every opportunity whenever Muslims or Muslim groups do something positive, like saying they will hound out extremists.

However, reading the comments at Harrys Place a commentor pointed to this

What Islam really says?

You just KNOW that the what's going to be said is going to the biggest heap of BULLSHIT you have ever heard!


Quran 8:12 Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

Qur'an 9:5: Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Will be truncated to "Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

Human Rights

Quran 4:34 Husbands should take full care of their wives, with [the bounties] God has given to some more than others and with what they spend out of their own money. Righteous wives are devout and guard what God would have them guard in the husbands’ absence. If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great.

Will become: "Husbands should take full care of their wives!"

Other religions

Quran 5:51: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Will become "O you who believe! do take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are great friends! Surely Allah does guide these people!"

    Every single Arab word that we become aware of is evil and relates to killing, enslaving and bullying. But hey ! Thats multiculturalism so we should embrace these new words and be happy !

    I am so tired of seeing the same boring black and white arguments over and over and over! starting with the multiculturalism malcolm. I happen to come from a city built on this principle. They celebrate it they display it they shout it and encourage it still to this day. so on this topic there is a way it works! I have seen it lived it and can prove it!
    stop saying it doesnt!
    second is the "Islam is the religion of ....whatever"
    "athiest" types never have anything to use except "there is no god!"
    That is a never ending battle!
    ....ahhh fuck it, Im gonna cut this short. Every possible debate is I'm right your wrong.
    Yes!! all these lines and more are there inside the koran and yes people are using them to justify their actions.
    all modern religion is need of reform! Islam especailly! how about instead of always fighting, people start thinking a little more? huh?
    you look at those passages or whatever they call them as out right fundamental laws! so do the people who use them!
    the thing with religion is it starts out good and goes to hell everyone of them out there! because people will always find a way to use it for their own power and benifit.
    what is the history of these lines? what is the history of the koran?
    what is the history of the culture?
    what is the history of the time?
    there are MILLIONS of questions that could be asked... why not one?? from anyone?
