Never believe a Muslim

This was the infamous “incubator baby” lie that fooled the G.H.W. Bush administration into launching the first Gulf War.

Nayireh: daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador in Washington. No nurse. She’s reading (badly) a script.

Two of the liars attending this fake conference was the Serbophobe Tom Lantos and the sheik’s next door neighbor, Senator Ted Kennedy.

FAKED 15-YO KUWAITI GIRL TESTIMONY

Uploaded on Jun 15, 2010 by guyjohn59

Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ (Arabic: نيره الصباح‎), called “Nurse Nayirah” in the media, was a fifteen-year-old Kuwaiti girl, who alleged that she had witnessed the murder of infant children by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait, in verbal testimony to the U.S. Congress, in the run up to the 1991 Gulf War. Her testimony, which was regarded as credible at the time, has since come to be regarded as wartime propaganda. The public relations firm Hill & Knowlton, which was in the employ of Citizens for a Free Kuwait, had arranged the testimony. Nayirah’s testimony was widely publicized. Hill & Knowlton, which had filmed the hearing, sent out a video news release to Medialink, a firm which served about 700 television stations in the United States. That night, portions of the testimony aired on ABC’s Nightline and NBC Nightly News reaching an estimated audience between 35 and 53 million Americans. Seven senators cited Nayirah’s testimony in their speeches backing the use of force. President George Bush repeated the story at least ten times in the following weeks. (Wikipedia)

The title may sound offensive, but look up Taqqiya. yya تقية (alternate spellings taqiyeh,taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah) is a form of religious dissimulation,[1] or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution

@Alyse Radenovic,
Indeed.

There’s no shortage of material, and new instances are happening every day.

@jpm,
My understanding of taqiyya is that this sort of deception is allowable, not only when the believer is at risk of significant persecution, but also whenever it helps to propagate Islam.

Re “This was the infamous “incubator baby” lie that fooled the G.H.W. Bush administration into launching the first Gulf War”… No, no, it was the lie of Lantos, Kennedy, the media and George Herbert Walker Bush that fooled the sheeple…
