"Thanks for the Taqqiyah alert Serendip."

Recently I have been baulking at the over used phrase 'taqiyya' as it seems to be used at every opportunity whenever Muslims or Muslim groups do something positive, like saying they will hound out extremists.

However, reading the comments at Harrys Place a commentor pointed to this

What Islam really says?

You just KNOW that the what's going to be said is going to the biggest heap of BULLSHIT you have ever heard!


Quran 8:12 Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."

Qur'an 9:5: Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Will be truncated to "Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."

Human Rights

Quran 4:34 Husbands should take full care of their wives, with [the bounties] God has given to some more than others and with what they spend out of their own money. Righteous wives are devout and guard what God would have them guard in the husbands’ absence. If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great.

Will become: "Husbands should take full care of their wives!"

Other religions

Quran 5:51: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Will become "O you who believe! do take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are great friends! Surely Allah does guide these people!"
