This is a winy crock. He is lying. I belive that with all my being. I have no respect for this man and for the story that he tells because there is nothing true or relevant about it. It is a large smoke screen designed to impugn our respect for life as Americans in a dirty and disgusting war which I do not want a part in but am forced to be because of the incapacity of the Arab/Islamic world to be genuine and humane.
Comparative Index to Islam : LYING: "Lying today
Imam Abu Hammid Ghazali says: 'Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible.' (Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, The Reliance of the Traveller, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, amana publications, 1997, section r8.2, page 745)
Note that Al-Ghazali is one of the most famous and respected Muslim theologians of all time."
