Ask any Muslim, even those educated, if they denounce the hatred against idol worshippers spewed by the Quran and Hadis? They will never give you a straight answer and beat around the bush.
: Please ask your so-called liberal/moderate Muslims the following questions: Do you agree there's another god, not necessarily Allah? There are ways, other than those mentioned in the Quran and Hadis, to reach god? Why does the Quran speak of killing and hate? Of converting non-Muslims, of turning Darul Herb into Darul Islam? Why does Islam advocate killing those who renounce Islam and accept another faith?
Muslims are taught to lie about Islam's violent character.
Taqqia: intentional lying about religion
Tawriyya is to phrase a statement in such a way that it can be interpreted in more than one way. It is usually done with the intention of misdirecting a person by causing him to understand a statement in another context while you mean it in a different context. This way if you are caught you can't be accused of lying since you 'technically' didn't lie.
For example, the Surat i Maida verse most Muslims quote that killing one is equal to killing humanity. (they never say the verse only refers to Muslims living in Jewish tribal areas)
Kitman means to conceal or withhold, In the context of Islam it means to deliberately withhold information.
Muruna: is flexibility (in interpretation) per convenience.
