Will Iran abandonTaqiya by signing a nuclear treaty with the

The deadline in the nuclear talks between Iran and the West is fast approaching.

The self-imposed deadline was March 31, but it appears that agreement may not be

reached by that date. I would expect to have pronouncements that they’re making

progress that they need to extend the time needed to complete the agreement. I

believe that the President of United States will want this interim agreement to try to

convince the Congress of United States not to pass any more sanctions against Iran.

There has been a great deal of discussion of the terms and conditions of this

potential treaty. President Barack Obama announced this week that some of the

terms and conditions maybe held in secret and never disclose to the American

Congress or the American people. I am concerned that if we are not to know all the

terms then how will we know if they are in compliance with the accord. This paper

will not try to explore all the details, that maybe in this accord. What I want to

explore is the likelihood that Iran will in fact, honor its commitment when it signs

the document.

The vast majority of Americans do not understand many of the principles that are laws as

to how Muslims are to interact with infidels. Infidels are the rest of the world that is not

Muslim. The principles of behavior between Muslims and infidels are outlined in Sharia

law and the Quran. One of the guiding forces is called Taqiya. This principle is

sometimes referred to as dissimulation. Dissimulation, is a form of deception in which

one conceals the truth from another, in our case an infidel. It consists of concealing the

truth, or in the case of half-truths, concealing parts of the truth.

Muslims are taught from a very young age, that when they deal with infidels they do not

have to do what they have said they’re going to do. When Iranian says to the west, that

they do not want nuclear weapons, they just want to generate electrical power through the

use of nuclear energy, I believe they are invoking Taqiya. A Muslim learns to achieve

the goal by any means necessary including lying, misleading the infidel, all are


In trying to figure out what Iran will do after they sign the treaty, we have to ask will the

ayatollahs want the Iran Government to comply or will they tell leadership that under

Taqiya they are not bound by the terms and conditions of the treaty? The parties on the

other side of the table, I believe, have very little experience in negotiating with Muslims

and may in fact be incredibly naïve in believing that they will comply for 10 years. If you

believe that you are negotiating a good faith then you assume that the other party is also

negotiating in good faith. The Iranian side is agreeing with the west but knows it will not


Neville Chamberlain, representing the Allied Nations went to meet with Adolf Hitler and

came back with a signed agreement as to how the Nazis would behave. We know that

Hitler did not negotiate in good faith, but Chamberlin, left Hitler believing him at his

word. We were surprise when he didn’t live up to the terms and conditions of the

agreement. So, with Taqiya in place as a guiding principle for the Iranian negotiators

why should we trust them to comply with the treaty, especially if it doesn’t fit their goal.

George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat


To ignore the beliefs that drives the person you are negotiating with is a dangerous

position to take. Any treaty between Iran and the West, must have very specific terms and

conditions. It also must have specific actions taken by the west anytime Iran violates the

treaty. Continued violations of the terms and conditions of the treaty will result in more

severe economic sanctions. If the impositions of economic sanctions are not sufficient to

bring Iran into compliance with the terms of the treaty, then swift military action will be

necessary to degrade and destroy their nuclear capability.

Taqiya has been around for almost 1,300 years why should we believe that in this day

and time the Muslims on the other side of the table are going to abandon their way of life

when dealing with infidels. The stakes are so high, and the risk is so dangerous, that we

should be guided by the words of Ronald Reagan when he was associating a nuclear

treaty with the Russians what he said, “Trust but verify.” It we do not have the ability to

verify and specific actions to be taken against Iran government for noncompliance then

we should not sign this treaty.

Giving Iran the ability to build a nuclear bomb will results in an ultimatum to the world

“Convert or die”
