In other words, it's okay to lie to achieve your goals. So, it's not surprising, when you see certain Muslim clerics and government leaders talking about peace and moderation to one group of people (i.e. the Western world), and then the opposite to another group (the Arab world). Take Fatah, the supposed moderate faction of the Palestinian people. Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority and Chairman of Fatah, said a while back that a Unity government with Hamas would be predicated upon the recognition of Israel, which Hamas continues to refuse to do. Which, one would assume, means Fatah is willing to recognize Israel, but this is not the case. In a recent television interview, senior Fatah leader, Muhammad Dahlan revealed that Fatah too, will never recognize Israel, and they don't expect Hamas to, either.
"Concealing or disguising one's beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury."
"I want to say for the thousandth time, in my own name and in the name of all of my fellow members of the Fatah movement: We do not demand that the Hamas movement recognize Israel. On the contrary, we demand of the Hamas movement not to recognize Israel, because the Fatah movement does not recognize Israel even today."He went on to admit that although Fatah and Hamas both refuse to recognize Israel, The Palestinian Authority will, but only to legitimize their position in the eyes of the western world in order to receive much needed aid. Under this blatant deception, Hillary Clinton and the U.S. have pledged 900 million dollars, that we don't have, to a people who will simply take the money and run, and continue battering Israel with rockets. The international community having pledged a total of 4.5 billion in relief, once again, has been duped by al-taqiyya.
