CNN Interview: Muslim Cleric Describes Violent Islamic Vision
Posted by iusbvision on October 30, 2010
I actually appreciate this Imam’s honesty. He makes it very clear that Muslims tell English speaking press one thing and do another. This type of deception has a title in Islam called Taqiyya:
Taqiyya is the Islamic practice of precautionary dissimulation whereby believers may conceal their Muslim faith when under threat, persecution or compulsion. The term taqiyya (تقیه) (pronounced as tagiyeh by speakers of Iranian Persian; alternate spelling taqiya) is derived from the Arabic triliteral root waw-qaf-ya, denoting “piety, devotion, uprightness, and godliness, and it means the brightest star”,.
The practice of concealing one’s faith in dangerous circumstances originates in the Qur’an itself, which deems blameless those who disguise their beliefs in such cases . The practice of taqiyya in difficult circumstances is considered legitimate by Muslims of various persuasions.

Former PLO Leader Yassir Arafat used the same tactic regularly. When he spoke in English it was all about peace, love and diplomacy. When he spoke in Arabic it was kill the Jews, kill the infidels, push them into the sea and destroy the west. The Hadith tells us how Mohammad often used deception as a tactic. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) uses this exact same tactic. Several CAIR members and leaders have been arrested for terror support and CAIR’s leader Ibrahim Hooper tries to hard to sound “loving and peaceful” yet he told Michael Medved on the air that he wants the Constitution of the United States replaced with Sharia law. Lebanon used to be a democratic Christian nation. When Muslims started moving in they talked of peace and love and tolerance. They used the West’s own values against them. When they were entrenched with enough numbers to wield enough political power the persecution and killings of the Christians began. Now Lebanon is an Iranian satellite state.
Listen to the Imam very carefully in the video as he quickly describes this process.
Via The Blaze:
During an appearance on CNN’s Parker/Spitzer, Radical Muslim cleric Imam Anjem Choudary revealed a few unsettling details of Islamic extremists’ worldview, including the role of “moderate” Muslims in spreading Sharia law around the globe. Choudary says that spreading Sharia law is a “noble” goal as it represents a “superior way of life” compared to the “shackles of man-made law.”
According to Choudary, violent terrorist attacks are a “peaceful” warning to countries like the United States and Israel, whom he claims are occupying Muslim lands. He also admits to encouraging Muslims in the United States to carry out these kinds of attacks:
Spitzer: Are you communicating with individuals in the United States and encouraging them to participate in attacks of this sort?
Choudary: Of course I am. I am participating in communication with people all around the world. As you know, the internet makes the world a very small place. … My invitation is a peaceful one to people to embrace Islam, and to warn them of the consequences of occupying Muslim land. I think that’s a very decent thing…
