Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out
in response to reader comment: Taqiyya and Kitman: The role of Deception in Islamic Terrorism

Submitted by Philip Martin (United States), Jan 27, 2018 at 11:33

That's pretty good & informative and fairly accurate except for one thing..
"Taqiyya" was first introduced by the man who gave rise to Islam (Muhammad).

After he was forced to relocate to Medina, Muhammad agreed to a 10yr peace treaty with Mecca, but barely 2yrs into the treaty he called his Muslims to war against his homeland and to justify breaking the treaty he called it "taqiyya" (the use of lies & deception to further the purpose of Islam).

How ironic that the man Muslims praise as the bringer of truth, condoned the use of lies and deceit.
