Is Obama Perpetually LYING to AIPAC and the Jewish Voting bloc Taqiyya style?
Understanding Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah
30 April, 2007
Lying and cheating in the Arab world is not really a moral matter but a method of safeguarding honor and status, avoiding shame, and at all times exploiting possibilities, for those with the wits for it, deftly and expeditiously to convert shame into honor on their own account and vice versa for their opponents. If honor so demands, lies and cheating may become absolute imperatives.” [David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed Circle” An interpretation of the Arabs, p4]
“No dishonor attaches to such primary transactions as selling short weight, deceiving anyone about quality, quantity or kind of goods, cheating at gambling, and bearing false witness. The doer of these things is merely quicker off the mark than the next fellow; owing him nothing, he is not to be blamed for taking what he can.” [David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed Circle”, p38]
The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.
Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including lying under oath in testimony before a court, deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. A Muslim is even permitted to deny or denounce his faith if, in so doing, he protects or furthers the interests of Islam, so long as he remains faithful to Islam in his heart.
OBAMA AND THE ADC
BY: Adam Kredo - July 3, 2012
President Obama and two of his senior advisers recently participated in a conference that was organized by an Arab-American group whose members and affiliates routinely condemn Israel, refer to its leaders as terrorists, and equate Zionism with racism.
Obama recently filmed remarks for the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee’s (ADC) 2012 conference, which took place last week in Washington, D.C. The ADC bills itself as a civil rights organization that is focused on protecting Arab Americans from discrimination, yet it has often come under scrutiny for promoting views that are highly critical of Israel.
In addition to filming remarks, Obama also directed two of his top advisers to speak at the confab: Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes and Ari Matusiak, executive director of the White House Business Council.
The administration’s endorsement of a conference that featured a Palestinian advocate who has labeled Israel an “apartheid state” and presented an award to the author of an essay titled “Zionism is a Form of Racism” has raised eyebrows among advocates of the Jewish state. They worry that in its race to secure votes in a tough election, the administration is cozying up with those who aim to subvert the U.S.-Israel alliance.
“It just makes me very suspicious of the president’s past statements and platitudes when speaking before Jewish and pro-Israel audiences,” one prominent Jewish official said when informed of the administration’s participation in the ADC event. “For a lot of Jewish opinion leaders, we’re left to wonder, ‘Is this an administration that is genuine in its statements regarding Israel or is this an administration that will say anything and do anything to get reelection—including speaking out of both sides of their mouths?’”
Also in attendance was the Rev. Brenda Girton-Mitchell, director of the White House-backed Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education, as well as NAACP President Ben Jealous.
In his remarks before the ADC, Obama praised the organization and its members for standing “against discrimination”—though several prominent faces in attendance have long castigated Israel in public forums.
“You’ve stood against discrimination in all of its forms, and you help build a better America for all of us,” Obama said before a crowd that included Phyllis Bennis, a co-founder and committee member of the “U.S. Campaign to End Israeli Occupation,” as well as Mustafa Barghouti, a founder of Palestinian National Initiative who has dubbed Israel an “apartheid state.”
Bennis’ group has vociferously advocated in favor of BDS, otherwise known as “Boycott, Divestment and Sanction,” a form of economic warfare meant to choke Israel’s economy and force its leaders to give land to the Palestinians.
The group is also the architect of a campaign that urges supporters to “Tell Your Members of Congress: Put U.S. Interests—Not Israel’s—First.” Multiple Jewish groups have condemned as anti-Semitic the accusation that Jewish people and members of Congress are unduly loyal to Israel. The charge has also cost officials at White House-aligned think tanks their jobs.
During a luncheon at the ADC ceremony, an award was presented to attorney Abdeen Jabara, who is known for penning the 2008 essay, “Zionism is a Form of Racism.”
Two associates of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a controversial Muslim advocacy group, also addressed the confab. Federal prosecutors listed CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in a legal case that exposed a network of organizations that funnel money to the terror group Hamas. [Emphasis added]
Both of the CAIR associates in attendance have publicly made radical statements either praising terrorism or blasting Israel.
CAIR’s Cyrus McGoldrick publicly urged “Allah” to “protect the revolution” in Egypt from benefiting Israel.
“My heart is with Egypt after yesterday’s military coup,” McGoldrick wrote in a post on Twitter. “May Allah protect the revolution & people from the military doing Israel’s bidding.”
Arsalan Tariq Iftikhar, CAIR’s former communications director, accused a former Israeli prime ministers of being a “terrorist.”
“Let me state in the most categorical terms that I can that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is as much of a terrorist as Yasser Arafat, if not five times more,” he stated in an essay titled, “Bush Ignores Israeli Terrorism.”
The ADC was originally founded in 1980 Former Sen. James Abourezk, who has accused Israel of “high-tech ethnic cleansing” and claimed that the “American taxpayer is footing the bill for Israel’s criminal activities.”
Abourezk, an Arab American, has also trafficked in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, accusing Congress of being controlled by Jewish people.
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” — Barack Obama

‘MASS CONCENTRATION PRISON CAMPS’: READ THE SHOCKING EMAILS THAT FORCED A FLORIDA DNC MEMBER TO RESIGN
By Mytheos Holt
July 3, 2012
President Barack Obama’s Democratic party has been accused by many sources of being overly cozy with anti-Israel cranks. It is perhaps because of this reputation, fair or unfair though it may be, that the DNC ended up choosing the Jewish Floridian Debbie Wasserman Schultz to be its leader just in time for this year’s Presidential elections.
However, noble though Schultz’s own convictions may be, they scarcely excuse those held by members of her own party. Indeed, they might even look suspect, especially if one of Schultz’s close longtime allies were shown to harbor extremist anti-Israel sentiments.
Oh, wait. One of her longtime allies does. Meet Evelyn Garcia, who until yesterday was the Palm Beach representative to the Democratic National Committee:
