Lying photo op: Muslim family with food cries starving

Muslims believe that lying to further Islam World Rule is moral. Mosque leaders preach it. Muslim world leaders practice it.

Per Israel News' Gaza reporter Ron Ben-Yishai: "The (Gaza) family suddenly notices the cameras, and immediately, the expression on their faces changes. 'We have no food,' they say in Arabic, as one of the youngsters suggests we interview him in English about their plight.

"Givati (Brigade troops, Israel's defense force) are extremely concerned about being portrayed as abusing innocent civilians. Eilon Perry, Givati's operations officer, points to a stack of canned goods, water bottles and other provisions.

"'We provided some of that and they cook and eat quite well,' he said. The Palestinians seem to understand him and one of them smiles. It's a war ó they had to try."

There you have the instinctive response. Cameras show up before a Gaza Muslim family with food. Immediately they lie about not having food.

Cameras are the stimulus. Lying is the response.

It is the same with such Muslim websites as Citizens for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). It is laden with lies throughout.

Recently CAIR instructed Muslims how to appeal for Middle East peace. Not once did CAIR spell out the Muslim atrocities worldwide, particularizing those against Israel since Israel's inception on May 14, 1948.

All was bent in the direction of Muslims defending Muslims, especially now in Gaza.. Nothing was posted regarding Israel having to defend its existence against Hamas rocket fire.

When it comes to Muslims lying to world leaders, what comes to mind is when President George W. Bush entertained American Muslims in the White House. It was for a Ramadan dinner at which time Muslim men ate with Mr. Bush in one room while Muslim women ate with Mrs. Bush in another room.

Mr. Bush then lifted the Koran, stating that he was placing it in the White House library for the first time.

That horrified Christians, particularly evangelicals who regard the Bible as the Word of God. To place the demonic Koran in the same House with the Bible would be considered blasphemy.

For many it would also signal God's grief against Mr. Bush for so desecrating divine revelation. This is so particularly when Mr. Bush has informed the public of his daily reading of the Bible for personal guidance and his aligning with evangelicals in recent years.

Yet it can only be concluded that Mr. Bush was attempting to appease American Muslims with the dinner and the Koran placing, trying to believe their peace intents.

What Mr. Bush should have realized is that even in America there are Muslim leaders who lie to him. They are out to establish Islam World Rule through governmental agencies, in the military, in grassroots communities.

To Christians, lying is immoral. "You shall not bear false witness" is one of the Ten Commandments.

However, to Muslims, lying is an ethical tool by which to enhance the rule of Allah throughout the planet.

Further, that is why many do not believe B. Hussein Obama. They consider him a mask Muslim. Therefore, when he said he knew nothing about Jeremiah Wright's cultic rants against Jews and American whites as well as his alignment with Hamas in particular and Muslims in general, they call B. Hussein a liar.

When B. Hussein says that he is not aligned with Louis Farrakhan, leader of Nation of Islam with headquarters in B. Hussein's political district in Illinois, they call him a liar.

When B. Hussein says that he is a US natural-born citizen, yet does not provide the legitimate birth certificate to show just that, they call him a liar.

When B. Hussein says that he is a Christian while supporting anti-Christian acts such as abortion and sodomy, they call him a liar.

When B. Hussein says that he is going to be a peace-maker for the Middle East while to date not making any public statement regarding Hamas rocketing Israel or Israel's right to defend itself, they call him a liar.

Bottom line: Muslims consider lying an ethical move per Allah's dictates. Lying is right. Lying is good. Lying is mandatory. Lying is blessed by the divine. Lying is a basic to being a Muslim.
