It’s no secret that President Barack Obama has a problem accepting responsibility for anything negative that happens in his administration.
This is one of the traits that make many people suspicious about his ties to Islam. While the president may not be a practicing Muslim, it is clear that his past and his background provide him with strong Islamic tendencies which are easily supported through his own words as well as many of his actions.
Among the more obvious examples is bowing to the Saudi royal family, the yellow drape at his press conferences which contains Islamic symbols and citing passages from the Koran in some of his speeches.
What is less obvious is a subtle, little known aspect of the faith, which the mainstream media will never mention and which is sure to be strongly refuted by Islamic apologists. The word in Arabic is taqiyya which literally mean “to prevent.” In English, we know it as lying.
The principle of Al-Taqiyya comes from the Koran, noting Muslims are permitted to lie if they are taking preventive measures against harm to themselves or to fellow Muslims. Taqiyya even allows Muslims to deny their faith, so long as they do not mean it in their hearts. It also means that Muslims may use the tactic to gain the upper hand over an opponent for personal gain whenever it may be advantageous to do so.
