We have reached the point where Islamic supremacists and Muslim Brotherhood proxies are virtually dictating their propaganda and fallacious narrative to big media and scribes, who take it down word for word, lie for lie, and report it as fact. Unindicted co-conspirator, Hamas-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR is the go-to guy for all things Islam. Never are they identified for the subversives that they are. Never are their jihadist connections or convicted leadership mentioned. Just as Anwar Awlaki was the go-to imam for big media right after 911 (Awlaki was imam to a couple of the 911 Muslim terrorists, as well as the Fort Hood jihadi, the Christmas day bomber, the Times Square bomber, et al). These willing dupes lather, rinse, repeat. They hit bottom and just keep digging. They still don't get it. In the information battle space, it's a game, and they are being so played. But could the stakes be higher?
Responsible journalism is dead.
Today's AP headline reads For US Muslims, a 9/11 anniversary like no other. It mimics a Hamas-linked CAIR press release. It is, of course, utter nonsense. But it is far more serious than that. This is Goebbels-style propaganda. The Nazis played the victim card too, and here again we have the victimizers playing the victim, with the complicity of their shills in the press.
They are not the ones living under death threat, we are. They are not the ones targeted, we are. They are not getting death threats. We are. They don't have to live with 24/7/365 heavy duty security, Geert Wilders does. Wafa Sultan, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Robert Spencer, Ibn Warraq, Salman Rushdie, the producers from Comedy Central, and accidental counter jihad tourists like Molly Norris live under death threat. As do I.
Good, decent souls speaking out against a radical ideology, gender apartheid and supremacism are demonized and marginalized.
But the media blacks that out. They never report on that. Their narrative of Muslims "living in fear," and worse still, living in fear on 911, is the ultimate insult. Real fear is living as a non-Muslim in Muslim countries under the sharia. Real fear is living as a Coptic Christian in Egypt, real fear is living as a Christian in Indonesia, real fear is a girl going to school in Afghanistan, real fear is being an Israeli awaiting the Islamic nuke, real fear is being a Jew in Europe, or a pro-Israel Jew on many US college campuses and on and on and on.
First, the concretes, the facts. Hate crimes directed against Muslims remain relatively rare, according to the latest FBI report. So all this push back by the bullies is a tactic.
We are now being clubbed to death with two reports of mosque incidents in Tennessee and California. Mind you, many recent mosque incidents have been done by Muslims, so let's wait to see who is arrested. And no matter who is responsible, Muslims or non-Muslims, they should prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Synagogues have been desecrated and attacked in record numbers, but no one talks about that. Real attacks. Antisemitism is at record highs worldwide, the highest since World War II. *Yawn* But only this relentless nonexistent islamophobia gets played on an endless loop, a psy-op on the American psyche -- and we are tired of it. Defense against Islamic jihad is a healthy response to a mortal enemy.
The AP is alleging that Muslims are in fear of 911. Why? We were attacked by Muslim terrorists. What has the Muslim community, the ummah done to eradicate the ideology that inspired those attacks? Or the Fort Hood jihad, the Fort Dix Six, the Christmas day bomber, the Times Square bomber? We have waited patiently, have we not? What efforts, in the past nine years, have been made to expunge the koran of its genocidal prescriptions? With the exception of dawah (proselytizing) camouflaged as "interfaith dialogue," nothing has been done. The West has bent over backwards in "outreach," "mutual understanding," and "mutual respect." Where is the reciprocity? And where has it gotten us, except further down the rabbit hole?
The 911 quran burning in Florida is a dumb idea. Stupid. I don't support such acts. Book burnings are always a bad idea. But Muslims have nothing to fear from those Christians. It is insensitive for that church to burn the quran, but it is still a free country, is it not? Islamic supremacists can't whine about "insensitivity" while planning to erect a 15-story mega mosque on Ground Zero.
It is Muslims who should be ripping out the violent passages in the quran that have inspired 1,400 years of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements that resulted in the slaughter of 270 million souls, Muslims among them. Only the Muslim world can reform Islam. What is being done?
This AP article takes the cake. Basically it is saying that if Muslims get violent, it's our fault.
NEW YORK – American Muslims are boosting security at mosques, seeking help from leaders of other faiths and airing ads underscoring their loyalty to the United States — all ahead of a 9/11 anniversary they fear could bring more trouble for their communities.
Their goal is not only to protect Muslims, but also to prevent them from retaliating if provoked. One Sept. 11 protest in New York against the proposed mosque near ground zero is expected to feature Geert Wilders, the aggressively anti-Islam Dutch lawmaker. The same day in Gainesville, Fla., the Dove World Outreach Center plans to burn copies of the Quran.
"We can expect crazy people out there will do things, but we don't want to create a hysteria," among Muslims, said Victor Begg of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan. "Americans, in general, they support pluralism. It's just that there's a lot of misinformation out there that has created confusion."
On Tuesday, the Islamic Society of North America will hold a summit of Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders in Washington "to address the growing tide of fear and intolerance" in the furor over the planned New York mosque.
Islamic centers in many cities are intensifying surveillance and keeping closer contact with law enforcement. Adding to Muslim concern is a fluke of the lunar calendar: Eid al-Fitr, a joyous holiday marking the end of Ramadan, will fall around Sept. 11 this year. Muslim leaders fear festivities could be misinterpreted as celebrating the 2001 terror strikes.
"We're telling everyone to keep their eyes open and report anything suspicious to authorities and call us," said Ramzy Kilic of the Tampa, Fla., chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Other efforts around 9/11 aim to fight bigotry. Muslims will clean parks, feed the homeless, and give toys to sick children as part of Muslim Serve, a national campaign to demonstrate Islamic commitment to serving humanity.
Separately, groups are distributing ads to combat persistent suspicions about Islam. One spot, called "My Faith, My Voice," features American Muslims saying, "I don't want to take over this country."
Sept. 11 anniversaries have always been challenging for U.S. Muslims, who have been under scrutiny since the attacks. This year, the commemoration follows a stunning summer in which opposition to a planned Islamic community center near the World Trade Center site escalated into a national uproar over Islam, extremism and religious freedom.
Islamic centers as far away as Tennessee and California faced protests and vandalism. In western New York, police said a group of teenagers recently yelled obscenities, set off a car alarm and fired a shotgun during two nights of drive-by harassment at a small-town mosque near Lake Ontario.
Usama Shami, board chairman for the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, said a new mosque the congregation has been building for years drew little attention until recently, when some resistance emerged in the neighborhood and from some in city government. Recently, vandals broke into the new building, spilled paint on the floor and broke expensive windows.
Shami believes the ground zero dispute is partly to blame for the trouble, along with passions unleashed by Arizona's strict new law that would require police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally.
What dhimmi shilling. The AP has no shame.
UPDATE: The police have posted a $20,000 reward for information leading to arrest of the person or persons responsible for the suspected arson of a piece of construction equipment at the site of the planned mega mosque in Tennessee.
When have the cops ever posted a reward for information leading to an arrest on any of the numerous attacks on a synagogue or church? When?
