So we have pretty much all gone round and admitted that taqqiyya is a newer concept to most of us former Muslims, that none of us had heard about it until very lately. Tonight an alt-right was trying to convince me of all sorts of conspiracy theories and she dropped this source on me: http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Center_for_Security_Policy
Didn't want to link to their page, because ick.
So I had heard of it before, the Center for Security Policy, but I had never looked them up. So here the description at the aforementioned page goes on to mention that this org had released a report in 2010 called Shariah, about how Muslims are all engaging in taqqiyya and etc. Probably all that creeping shariah cultural jihad stuff.
So my question is, did anyone here know about this concept (taqqiyya) before 2010? Just wondering if this is the cause of all the hype. For me the answer is no. I did not hear about it until after I had joined this forum, and I first heard about it here later on- probably in 2013.
Thanks for your time!
