Parvez Ahmed: Master of Taqiyya

Reader comment on item: More CAIR Dirty Tricks against Me

Submitted by Abraham (United States), Nov 22, 2007 at 23:49

For those of you readers who do not understand the Islamic principle of Taqiyya, let me put it quite simply: it gives you the right as a Muslim to lie, to fabricate untruths, to deny everything and admit to nothing, to commit perjury and perfidy, to say and do anything if it serves to "save" another Muslim from "danger." I put "Save" and "Danger" in quotes because these are so subjective and so widely generalized, that it can mean protecting a Muslim from any criticism deemed harmful. So, when Ahmed starts spinning his yarns and pulls all sorts of bogus accusations out of his butt with which to make great scholars like Daniel Pipes look bad, well...he's just doing what his Islamofascists freaks would do.

Sort of like when the a mob hitman says to you, "Nothing personal, it's just business" before he puts a bullet in your brain..except in Parvez's case, he makes it personal y calling people out by name. I say that it;s time we repay the favor to him.

Listen, Daniel. I would like nothing better than for him to get a taste of his own medicine. The Big Cheese at CAIR lives in the same city as I do -- Jacksonville, Florida -- and is a professor here as well. He occasionally writes letters to the Editor spouting the same old Islamophobia garbage we know and love.

Oh, you ought to read the last two letters he had published -- which, by the way, are verbatim excerpts from his blog. So, better to read his blog entries for November and October to get a full stomach of his pedantic diatribes.

What gets my goat is how his letters and "special columns" are treated like either opinion pieces, or fact-finding reports when, in reality, they are part of a larger, calculated disinformation campaign managed by his buddies at CAIR. His first letter was written in support of the HLF -- no surprise as CAIR was given five large by HLF to get started -- but to listen to him describe the recent HLF trial that ended in a hung jury, you'd think they won an acquittal:

After a record 19 days of deliberation, a jury in Dallas did not return even one guilty verdict on almost 200 charges brought against officials of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Muslim charity.

Well, Duh, Dr. Ahmed. Mistrials do not return verdicts. Then he adds,

Throughout this ordeal [the HLF trial]...the American Muslim community placed its trust in HLF by making it the No. 1 Muslim charity in America."

Now, that's a darn good trick considering that the US Government shut them down in December 2001.

Talk about reverse-speak! He makes the Nazi "Arbeit Macht Frei" slogan seem like one of Plato's Ultimate Truths by comparison. He compiled a list of "Urban Legends About CAIR." which are all pedrfect examples of reverse-speak. He had a beauty in this same blog post:

Most Americans did not get to hear how their hard-earned tax dollars are being wasted to counter nonexistent "Muslim conspiracies" to overthrow the American Constitution and impose Shariah laws. (Yes, believe it or not, the prosecution in the HLF case laid out such preposterous theories to support the flimsy case.)

How "preposterous" was it to hear CAIR founder and chairman, Omar Ahmad - also an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF case - tell a group of California Muslims "they are in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam's rule over the country. According to Ahmad, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran...should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth."

Joining Omar in singing an Islamic "Star Spangled Banner" was Ihsan Bagby, a future CAIR board member, who stated that Muslims "can never be full citizens of this country because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country." And who can forget Ibrahim Hooper, the future CAIR spokesman, told a Minneapolis newspaper that "If Muslims ever become a majority in the United States, it would be safe to assume that they would want to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law?"

AS they say on TV, "Wait, there's more!"

In his November blog post, Parvez takes potshots at basically everyone who has ever spoken the words, "Islamic terrorism," or any variant of it, insisting that they are just euphemisms for Islam. For example, he called Guiliani out for having a "belligerent viewpoint" against Islam. I suppose that Rudy's telling the Saudi's to take their $10million blood money check and shove it did not set well with him

Then, Parvez digs deep into the old Palestinian playbook to pull out references to three obscure non-Muslim tererorist groups as PROOF that terrorism is not just limited to Islamics, and that the Bush Administration and the State Department ignore them when it suits them. Who did he mention and how?

First, he says that the U.S. military permits PKK, a Kurdish terrorist organization, to keep safe harbor in Northern Iraq from where they launch terror attacks against Turkey. So, in other words, the U.S. military should forget about the Islamic insurgents trying to kill them, and go after a separatist group as if they are a threat to themselves or Iraqis, and as is the Turkish army can't handle them. Using Parvez's logic, the US military should not permit HAMAS to keep safe harbor in Gaza

Then, Ahmed says that we kept silent the Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka.-- which is an outright lie as we did declare them to be a terrorist gropu in 1997). He named them only because they were more successful in carrying out homicide bombings than Hamas was in Israel. Again the Tigers pose no threat to the US or any US ally, and this is yet another case of nationalism in another country.

Chalk up another big lie for Professor Pinocchio when, in this same post he declares that Lord's Resistance Army of Uganda, commits terrorism in the name of Christianity. That's like saying that David Koresh commited terrorism at Waco the name of Judaism. Finally, he really scrapes the barrel with the mention of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq as a State Department designated terrorist group -- which they were up until 15 years ago and are now organized as an army -- a disarmed army being guarded from Iranian attacks by our troops!

Saving ther "Best" for last, Parvez says that

The family value 'champions' [namely, Rudy Guilani, Charles Colson, Gary Bauer, James Dobson, and Pat Robertson] remain silent about the Iraq War.I mean, c'mon. Has ANYONE in this country REMAINED SILENT about Iraq?

With jokes like that, it's really hard to keep from laughing, let alone be silent about CAIR.
