These days telling the truth is passe, it hardly exists. Our ears have become too sensitive to the truth so we camouflage the truth with politically correct lexicon.
Whilst one of the Ten Commandments is NOT TO LIE, we are now told that lying is just fine.
It has become downright politically and diplomatically inconvenient to tell it like it is. At such juncture creative journalists, reporters and copywriters conjure up imaginative and spinning alternatives to the truth.
For example across oceans:
In Israel, on February 14, 2001, a Gazan bus driver, at a speed of 147 kilometers per hour – approximately 91 miles per hour, plowed the length of the sidewalk, slamming his vehicle into a crowd of passengers standing on the pavement at the Azur junction a bus stop, killing eight and wounding twenty one. The driver then continued in his mad drive southwards back to Gaza, and was finally apprehended near the town of Gan Yavneh.
The initial reaction was that this was a road traffic accident. It was not!
He then “inconsiderately” spoiled Israeli officialdom’s pretense that it was a traffic accident by announcing to all and sundry that he had intentionally set out to run down as many Israelis as possible. The terrorist-murderer never expressed even a vague suggestion of remorse, and as the reality in Israel goes, he was freed in the Gilad Schalit exchange of prisoners’ deal to a hero’s welcome in Gaza.
Sadly, this is hardly the only instance of an attempt to pass off a terrorist atrocity as something else. The Israeli penchant for identifying spit in the face as droplets of rain is ongoing.
In the USA, on November 5, 2009, at the Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas, US Army Major and psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hassan fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others. The Fort Hood shooting was a Jihadist mass murder, the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base. Several individuals, including Senator Joe Lieberman, General Barry McCaffrey, and others have called the event a terrorist attack. However, the United States Department of Defense and the federal law enforcement agencies have classified the shootings as an act of ‘Workplace Violence’. Hassan is now standing trial being treated with the utmost politically correct manner as to not offend Islam in its name he murdered to many.
Sadly, this is hardly the only instance of an attempt to pass off a terrorist atrocity as something else. The American establishment penchant for identifying spit in the face as droplets of rain is ongoing.
The Quran instructs Moslems to lie. It is called Taqiyya; it is lying to promote Islam, a Moslem concept which literally means: “Concealing or disguising a Moslem’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of imminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury.”
In political terms, Taqiyya is used as an intentional concealment of Islamic doctrines in order to gain influence and deceive so-called “enemies of Islam.” A one-word translation would be, dissimulation, a form of deception.
Jews were instructed by G-D, not to lie, Exodus 20:1
Commandment #7: You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
True Christians who admit that Jesus was a Jew follow the Ten Commandments’ Commandment #7.
And so the society that fought so hard for enlightenment is now far from being enlightened. It is trapped in a vicious cycle of lying born out of a process that was supposed to liberate it from insincerity and hypocrisy.
Political correctness is modern Taqiyya; its purpose is dumbing down society. If someone decides to tell the truth he or she is told to keep quiet so they do not attract an attacking crowd of people who wish to bury the truth to never be heard.
Not telling the truth leaves one remaining treading in the same place. Admonition of the propagate lies – the political correctness modern Taqiyya – could arouse the displeasure of world’s opinion and will defeat the agenda and discourse of many in the Western world.
Political correctness perpetually primed to censure countries and people and cause them to become disturbingly uncooperative to tell it like it is!
