Don't get upset Dr. Pipes; it's just Islamist "Taqiya" - and no "Islamophobia," please.

Reader comment on item: CAIR Again Lies About Me

You shouldn't call it a "Lie." It's just "Taqiya" - aka "Dissimulation" in English.

According to our scholarly American English dictionary,
Merriam-Webster's, the definition of "dissimulation" is
"to hide under a false appearance"

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dissimulate

And here is a whole book about it at Amazon.com:
https://www.amazon.com/Taqiya-Deliberate-Deception-Unveiling-Islam-ebook/dp/B00W7GUZZ0?asin=B00W7GUZZ0&revisionId=&format=2&depth=1

What do you expect from CAIR - the MAJOR Muslim American DISSIMULATION organization in the USA?

But don't be an Islamophobe just because of that (haha).

But here is a surprise for you (I think) Dr. Pipes - the word has entered our English language
so that the same Merriam Webster's dictionary defines it directly as:

Definition of "taqiya"
"the principle of practicing the dissimulation of outward conformity permitted Muslims in a hostile or persecuting non-Muslim environment for the sake of their personal safety."

Here is the link to said definition:
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/taqiya

So I think you should "forgive" CAIR because each one of them believes that you are a threat to their "personal safety." I am surprised as you are. Why don't you tell them each that you never meant to compromise their personal safety? They each seem to suffer from "Pipesphobia." I just coined the term. Why not have each of your Readers Email CAIR and ask CAIR to STOP Pipesphobia - because you are a "Man of Peace" (like them?).
