"Nazis were not ex- jews were they?"

Some Jews did collaborate with Nazis. Read history. Also, have you ever heard the term "self-hating Jew"?

"I said go to ex-muslims websites and books by ex-muslims, not hindu or christian websites."

Doesn't matter what you said: you asked him to read anti-Islamic sites. That's like asking people to just read anti-Christian atheist activist site to learn about Christianity or anti-Semetic Nazi sites to learn about Judaism.

"The difference is that islamic website use "taqiyya" the islamic principle of deception, which is allowed if used for the benefit of islam."

You are the one who seem to be lying. Shows again that a bigot is always an unreliable source. 'Taqiyya' (hiding your faith if you fear for your life) is mostly a Shi'a (and also a Jewish) tradition (both were persecuted in history by the majority). The majority of Sunnis in their anti-Shia polemic rant against 'taqiyya.' Nazis too used this argument to discredit everything a Jew might say (you fit well in there). Jewish scholar Maimonides justified pretending to be an adherent of another religion under duress in his Iggereth Teiman ("Letter to Yemen").

Given how you put that 'taqiyya' definition so polemically goes to show that anti-Anything bigot with an axe to grind is not a reliable source.
