wnbc.com - News - British Muslim Leader Says He Was Denied Entry To New York

wnbc.com - News - British Muslim Leader Says He Was Denied Entry To New York I trust that there was a good reason and even if there was not a really good reason there was some kind of reason - whatever it was - However you know that a Muslim can say whatever he wants to non-Muslims as long as he is trying to do good.

I found this quote

However, unlike most religions, within Islam there are certain provisions under which lying is not simply tolerated, but actually encouraged. The book "The spirit of Islam," by the Muslim scholar, Afif A. Tabbarah was written to promote Islam. On page 247, Tabbarah stated: "Lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare, and for the settlement of conciliation among people, than telling the truth. To this effect, the Prophet says: 'He is not a false person who (through lies) settles conciliation among people, supports good or says what is good."

Hmmm sounds like we should just accept it as a bad thing.
