Muslims can use taqiyya to get the upperhand and do willingly and not out of fear but because it's an advantage to lie outright with out shame. Lying in the west is a shamefull practice and if one is caught out that persons status and "word" looses value, so their trust, so their integrity.
There are many fatwa given to Muslims in the west that advise the Muslim to be false in taking any oath.

"If it is obliged to take an oath for getting citizenship, at that moment one should try to allude to the words of oath as much as possible to escape their intended point."

Language like this is all over the internet. One only has to google "fatwa" and many islamic Advisory sites or links are available. It's not like they are hiding the fact that they will not treat with us with any decency. The problem is that many in the west as yet are unwilling to believe that dictatorship is on their doorstep. Islam hasn't demanded anything from them so far and most willingly choose appeasement. That doesn't really cost anything either in their short term, me now outlook.

Of course Muslims lie to each other as a natural course of daily life, which is why in Islamic states the citizen is subordinate to the state and not a free citizen. They can not be trusted and must be constantly policed by community leaders, religious leaders, political leaders, a police force, an army and an internal spy service.

The state "disappears" many of it's citizens every year, if they're not shot outright on the street, in the name of state security. Most of the victims only voiced their own opinion. Poof, gone. The state is safe for another day.

You and I abhor, loathe such an existence but Muslims run to it, embrace it and will demand, fight to create that oppression and repression where ever they go.
