Jihad Watch: PA’s Message: In English – Coexist; In Arabic – Destroy Israel

This is a good article, but the most interesting part was a comment that was posted in response. I have copied it from the comment section and pasted it here.

In the early years of the Tawheed (Islamic conquest of the Arabian peninsula) and in the Fatah (Arab-Islamic invasion and conquest of the upper Middle East and the outside world), a Muslim concept was devised to achieve success against the enemy, Al-Taqiya..Al-Taqiya, from the verb Ittaqu, means linguistically dodge the threat. Politically it means simulate whatever status you need in order to win the war against the enemy..
According to Al-Taqiya, Muslims were granted the Shar’iya (legitimacy) to infiltrate the Dar el-Harb (war zone), infiltrate the enemy’s cities and forums and plant the seeds of discord and sedition. These agents were acting on behalf of the Muslim authority at war, and therefore were not considered as lying or denouncing the tenants of Islam. They were “legitimate” mujahedeen, whose mission was to undermine the enemy’s resistance and level of mobilization. One of their major objectives was to cause a split among the enemy’s camp. In many instances, they convinced their targeted audiences that Jihad is not aimed at them, that indigenous people are not targeted, only Bysantium power. They convinced many Jews that they will be protected from Christians, called pagans, and they convinced many Christians that Jews were the mortal enemies, because they killed Issa (Jesus). They convinced the Aramaics, Copts, and Hebrews that the enemy is Greece, and signed peace agreements with the Bysantines Greeks at the expense of Maronite Aramaics, etc.This Jihadic agency of subversion was one of the most fascinating and efficient arms of the conquest. In less them four decades the MIddle East fell to the Arab-Islamic rule, followed by north Africa and Central Asia.

Al-Taqiya was a formidable weapon, used by the first dynasties and strategists. Today, scholars may identify it as deception. But the Jihadic deception was and still is more powerful than the James Bondian methods of Western classical intelligence tactics, for the simple reason that it has a civilizational, global dimension versus the narrow state interest of the regular Western subversive methods.

Al-Taqiya is still in use today but not necessarily state-organized. One can easily detect Taqiya in the two discourses used by Islamist strategists. On the one hand, one comprehensive Islamist theory is attempting to mobilize Middle East, and sometimes Western Christia leaders and intellectuals, against “evil Jews.” We see considerable success on that level. And on the other hand, another Islamist comprehensive theory is attemting -with success also- to mobilize the Jews against “evil and pagan Christians.” One can easily detect the sophisticated work of Taqiya, for the strategic objective of Islamists is to destroy the foundations of the Judeo-Christian civilization, as a prelude to the defeat of an isolated Israel.

Taqiya is not a unique phenomenon in History, many strategists from all backgrounds implemented subversion. But the uniqueness of today’s Taqiya is its success within advanced and sophisticated societies. Taqiya is winning massively because of the immense lack of knowledge among Western elites, both Jewish and Christian.

For interesting examples of Taqiya methods, visit Christian discussion groups and forums and note the discourse of Islamist visitors, aimed at undermining the Christian perception of Jews, and visit Jewish discussion groups and forums and note the subtle anti-Christian discourse of Islamists visitors. It is really informative and fascinating.

This fascinates me because I remember meeting a group of young Muslim men a few years ago who took a great interest in me when they found out I was Jewish. After a very long conversation, the gist was that Islam is great and I would really love living life as a Muslim, but it didn’t matter because they didn’t really hate Jews. They claimed that Jews were okay, but that Christians were dirty pigs.
The most interesting part was they insisted that the reason the west didn’t need to worry about attacks from Muslims was that they were too busy killing each other. That seems obvious, by itself, but the reason they are killing each other goes back to an ancient argument about who the true heir to Mohammed’s teachings was. This argument is the origin of the split between the Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam.
These guys were adamant that an apostate Muslim is the worst kind of person in existence. By definition, Sunnis and Shiites both consider the other to be apostate Muslims. So, they are compelled to kill each other before they can turn on the rest of the world.
Anyway, only time will tell what will be and history is only an indicator not a mirror. As long as we keep knowledgeable about our enemy and wise of our history we will all end up together on the same side, the side illuminated by the light of the one true G-d, blessed be He, the G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.
