A Riddle

Quran 3:28 reminds me of a famous riddle.

. . .

3:28 Let not the Believers take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from God: except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourselves from them. But God cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to God.

Robert Spencer says this line is the basis for taqiya, a.k.a. Lying for Allah. Who What? Well, Islam teaches that it's all right to lie if you're talking to an infidel, and in another flash of the blindingly obscure, they get that from this line. Spencer's one of those perverted, cowardly Islamophobes, but y'know what? It's true. Here's a video with important people telling about it; they're boring, that's how you know they're important, but skip to 3:47 where an ex-terrorist tells how he used to do it. They lie like rugs, srsly.

So here's the riddle: You want to know if Islam is a religion of peace. There are two muslims, who can tell you. You don't know which one is a truth teller and which one is practicing taqiya ...

Update: Here's an example, and an ex-muslim's take on it.

I never heard of a religion of any type that says lying is OK. Most religions have some morals attached to them.

But in Islam, it appears, the only morals are for women. The guys can do whatever they want, even kill and lie.

It's not just muslims that do this. The FLDS is notorious for it. They call it "bleeding the beast", and it's how they justify having a dozen kids, for each of a dozen wives, all drawing public assistance money.
