Not Taqiyya

Taqiyya. "A one-word translation would be'Dissimulation.'"( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taqiyya).

I don't get that impression. Muhammed says they run around during the sermon, not during prayer. My impression is that he is a serious, truthful person with a lot to tell us about the situation in Indonesia that we don't know, and I'd appreciate your not gratuitously attacking him.
