Absolute intellectual/informational dominance is the strategic goal.
In case you ever wondered why you never got the straight story on Islam directly after 911, and why the media seemed to be in the tank for jihad, here's a clue.
The Society of Professional Journalists issued this directive a couple of weeks after 911. And they have followed it in goose step ever since.
Just how long has the Muslim Brotherhood been strategizing the take down and take over of the US and the west? Decades.
And while we have no strategy for fighting the enemy -- hell, we can't even name them -- they have a war plan that is so detailed and exact that every t is crossed and every i dotted.
Take a look at the "diversity" guidelines as set forth by the Society of Professional Journalists not two weeks after 911. The enemy that attacked our country in an attempt to bring it down was writing the narrative.
On Oct. 6, 2001 at its National Convention in Seattle, the Society of Professional Journalists passed a resolution urging members and fellow journalists to take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism and to reaffirm their commitment to:Even if the horror, murder and bloodshed of jihad is inflammatory, don't tell the people.
— Use language that is informative and not inflammatory;
— Portray Muslims, Arabs and Middle Eastern and South Asian Americans in the richness of their diverse experiences;
Portray the axe wielding murderers, the homicide bombers, the infiltrators of our most senior levels, in the "richness of their diverse experience" (you know, stonings, amputations, shariah law, clitorectomies, Jew hatred, Islamic colonialism, the caliphate..........)
— Seek truth through a variety of voices and perspectives that help audiences understand the complexities of the events in Pennsylvania, New York City and Washington, D.C.
What voices? Hamas front CAIR picked voices?
— Seek out people from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds when photographing Americans mourning those lost in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
Seek out Muslims ................
Seek out Muslims..................
— Seek out people from a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds when photographing rescue and other public service workers and military personnel.
— Do not represent Arab Americans and Muslims as monolithic groups. Avoid conveying the impression that all Arab Americans and Muslims wear traditional clothing.
Scam the folks on Muslims ........
— Use photos and features to demystify veils, turbans and other cultural articles and customs.
"Demystify veils and turbans"
Stories— Seek out and include Arabs and Arab Americans, Muslims, South Asians and men and women of Middle Eastern descent in all stories about the war, not just those about Arab and Muslim communities or racial profiling.
— Cover the victims of harassment, murder and other hate crimes as thoroughly as you cover the victims of overt terrorist attacks.
Cover the bogus tales of "harassment" just days after 3,000 Americans were brutally murdered by Muslims on our own soil. The Press is being told to throw Americans under the bus and kiss the adherents to the Islamic ideology that murdered our people and want to take over this country.
— Make an extra effort to include olive-complexioned and darker men and women, Sikhs, Muslims and devout religious people of all types in arts, business, society columns and all other news and feature coverage, not just stories about the crisis.
Try to show Muslims out of jihad. And don't talk about the Islamic attacks especially, right after they happen.
— Seek out experts on military strategies, public safety, diplomacy, economics and other pertinent topics who run the spectrum of race, class, gender and geography.
— When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.
There aren't any (except the three under some rock in Appalachia). But not to worry, make it up, or pull the Unabomber out of your ass, and Timothy McVeigh too (just don't mention the third Muslim man).
— Do not imply that kneeling on the floor praying, listening to Arabic music or reciting from the Quran are peculiar activities.— When describing Islam, keep in mind there are large populations of Muslims around the world, including in Africa, Asia, Canada, Europe, India and the United States. Distinguish between various Muslim states; do not lump them together as in constructions such as "the fury of the Muslim world."
But Obama does. The Islamic world does. The ummah is the worldwide global community.
— Avoid using word combinations such as "Islamic terrorist" or "Muslim extremist" that are misleading because they link whole religions to criminal activity. Be specific: Alternate choices, depending on context, include "Al Qaeda terrorists" or, to describe the broad range of groups involved in Islamic politics, "political Islamists." Do not use religious characterizations as shorthand when geographic, political, socioeconomic or other distinctions might be more accurate.
— Avoid using terms such as "jihad" unless you are certain of their precise meaning and include the context when they are used in quotations. The basic meaning of "jihad" is to exert oneself for the good of Islam and to better oneself.
— Consult the Library of Congress guide for transliteration of Arabic names and Muslim or Arab words to the Roman alphabet. Use spellings preferred by the American Muslim Council, including "Muhammad," "Quran," and "Makkah ," not "Mecca."
— Regularly seek out a variety of perspectives for your opinion pieces. Check your coverage against the five Maynard Institute for Journalism Education fault lines of race and ethnicity, class, geography, gender and generation.
The Maynard Institute for Journalism is "pure diversity" -- check out the front page. It's all Arab Muslims or African Americans.
— Ask men and women from within targeted communities to review your coverage and make suggestions.
In other words, ask Muslims for the taqiya and the right spin before you publish.

RIYADH (Reuters) - Muslim tycoons should buy stakes in global media outlets to help change anti-Muslim attitudes around the world, ministers from Islamic countries heard at aconference in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.
Information ministers and officials meeting under the auspices of the 57-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the world’s largest Islamic body, said Islam faced vilification after the September 11 attacks, when 19 Arabs killed nearly 3,000 people in U.S. cities in 2001.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - Muslim tycoons should buy stakes in global media outlets to help change anti-Muslim attitudes around the world, ministers from Islamic countries heard at a conference in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

"This would benefit in terms of correcting the image of Islam worldwide," he said, calling on Muslim countries to set up more channels in widely-spoken foreign languages.
Muslim stakes in Western media are minimal. Billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns 5.46 percent of media conglomerate News Corp., the Rupert Murdoch-run group behind the Fox News Channel. The U.S. channel is generally seen as right-wing and no friend of Arab or Muslim interests.
Washington's response to September 11, invading Afghanistan and Iraq and tightening civil freedoms at home as part of a wider "war on terror," has created a widespread feeling among Muslims worldwide that their religion is under attack.
A row earlier this year over Danish cartoons that depicted the Prophet Mohammed deepened the sense of a divide between Islamic culture and the West.
"The fierce attack on Islam in the five years since the September 11 attacks has forced us into a defensive position on our faith and understanding of our tolerant religion," Egyptian Information Minister Anas el-Feki said in a speech.
"Now more than ever we need a new Islamic media message that reaches all parts of the world," Feki said, citing Israel's recent 34-day war in Lebanon as one issue where Muslims needed to make their views and influence felt.
