Is Obama A Muslim ?

Taqiyya (alternate spellings taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation,[1]or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.[2]
This practice emphasized in Shi'a Islam whereby adherents may conceal their religion when they are under threat, persecution, or compulsion.[3]Taqiyya was developed to protect Shi'ites who were usually in minority and under pressure. In the Shi'a view, taqiyya is lawful in situations where there is overwhelming danger of loss of life or property and where no danger to religion would occur thereby.[1]

The majority Sunni Muslims rarely found it necessary to hide their beliefs. However, there are examples of practicing taqiyya among Sunnis where it was necessary.[4] In the Sunni view, denying your faith under duress is "only at most permitted and not under all circumstances obligatory".[5]

  1. It's a classic case of the "Boy Who Cried Wolf" or maybe even the opposite. Omama has been caught in so many lies, when he does (is that possible) tell the truth no one believes him. The man has obscured his life to such a degree that for all we know he could be a Rabbi. It's his own damn fault no one believes him. And as I've read more than once, Islam permits lying to infidels in most all cases. It's perfectly acceptable.

    Personally, I don't believe he believes in God at all. The only thing he considers divine is himself.
