dissimulation is the rule

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims

Submitted by y Brandstetter MD (Israel), Dec 14, 2015 at 01:05

All those questions are well and good but their effectiveness resides in the eyes of the interrogator. Since Muslims are allowed, indeed commanded to dissimulate, lie, present falesly, and have no compunctions in the Western sense about lying, those vetting processes are unlikely to weed out those with Jihadi intentions from those who will truely assimilate into the Western set of mind. No doubt some will be sincere, but looking at the Muslim record of upholding treaties with non-muslims, it is enshrined in the tradition that they be honored only as long as they serve the Muslim Jihadi purpose.

However, I am content with the outraged reactions of the Useful Dhimmis to Trump's simplistic assertions. The more Muslims move to the West, especially the Palestinian variety, the less Israel will have contend with. And the more Jews will realize the days of the Galuth are over, as the incomig Muslims take over the local violent landscape. See Malmo.
