Islamic Machiavellianism

Reader comment on item: [London Terrorism:] British "Covenant of Security" with Islamists Ends

Submitted by Timothy B. Roberts (United States), Jul 8, 2005 at 23:45

Jihad Islam is full of "covenants" when it suits their purposes. Whether it's the jizya tax, or the "invitation" to accept Islam--with consequences if one refuses--or the doctrine of Al-Wala' Wa'l-Bara' (the doctrine of alliance and dissociation) radical Islamists do everything for Allah (God?), including murdering those who refuse to cooperate with them.
