Muslims May Wear the Cross to Deceive Christians, Al Azhar professor

An Arabic language video of an Al Azhar professor, Dr. Salim Abdul Galil, is instructive of how that Egyptian institution sees the relationship between Muslims and Christians.

In it he discusses Koran 3:28: “Let believers not take for friends and allies infidels rather than believers: whoever does this shall have no relationship left with Allah—unless you but guard yourselves against them, taking precautions.”  Galil began by explaining this verse as meaning Muslims must never befriend or aid non-Muslims, especially against fellow Muslims.

However, if Muslims find themselves under non-Muslim authority and fear for themselves, they may, in the words of the Koran verse, “guard” themselves, by “taking precautions.”  The sheikh explained that this means that it is permissible for Muslims to pretend to be “one of them,” the infidels, but only on the outside.

By way of example, he said that if the Muslim is under the authority of Christians, and the cross is everywhere, the Muslim can wear the cross and hang it up— despite Islam’s well-known virulent hatred for the cross; he can also pretend to be a Christian and conceal his Muslim practices.  Sheikh Galil called this strategy—also known as the doctrine of taqiyya—as a “license” granted by Allah to Muslims to protect themselves against infidels.

Here, again, is a reminder of why Al Azhar is regularly accused of teaching the same brand of Islam that “radicals” adhere to.  Al-Qaeda has published a long treatise on this very topic, “Loyalty and Enmity,” calling on Muslims to hate non-Muslims, but permitting them to pretend to be one of them whenever circumstances make it prudent to do so.

And here again is a reminder of why it is that Egypt’s Coptic Christian population lives under unenviable circumstances.

  1. It’s amazing how these LYIN’ SCUM OF THE EARTH actually think and BELIEVE that they can serve GOD by all of their deception and bloodshed! It’s not only AMAZING–IT’S MIND BOGGLING AND TOTALLY NUTS!!!!! What’s more, they make Jesus Christ out to be just another LIAR–JUST LIKE THEMSELVES!!!!!

  2. Coptic Christians are persecuted in some rural areas of Egypt to the point that homes are burned and people are killed usually for made up claims of blasphemy against Islam. Why would any Muslim want to pretend to be Christian under these circumstances? If Muslims are being targeted then I suggest they move to an Islamic friendly country like Egypt.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
