Talk, talk, talking about Islam. Big media is having at it.
I, for one, am glad we are finally having this conversation, a direct result of the national outrage over the Ground Zero mega mosque. It's a dialogue that should have taken place right after 911. But better late than after all is lost. Note to Imam Rauf and Daisy the Con: beware the law of unintended consequences.
ABC's Diane Sawyer is doing an in-depth piece on Islam tonight on 20/20 at 10 pm Eastern. More on that here. Watch it. I am interviewed, as is Irshad Manji and face-covered burqa-clad American Muslims. I haven't seen it, but it should be interesting. Sawyer is going to address misconceptions on Islam. I pray she does. 60 Minutes spent close to two hours interviewing me, and we saw what naked shills they turned out to be. Irresponsible and reckless.
On Sunday, Christiane Amanpour is following Sawyer's lead. Her propaganda piece for Islamic supremacism is airing this Sunday at 11AM Eastern. We know what we can expect from Amanpour. She will shill for jihad and embarrass non-Muslims, as is her signature narrative, in yet another pathetic and transparent attempt to paint those defending freedom as racistislamophobicantiMuslimbigots.
Robert Spencer was on Amanpour's panel. The bias was plain, I am sure. It will be in servitude to Queen Daisy Con. Amanpour has no moral compass, and the galloping sharia would never have advanced so rapidly without tools like her in key senior media positions. I am holding out more hope for Sawyer's piece tonight. We'll see. I strongly urge you to watch it. The Huff Po has this:
ABC News announced that it will air two episodes on "Islam in America" in the wake of the controversy over the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero.
An hour-long "20/20" special by Diane Sawyer will air on Friday night. The special, "Diane Sawyer Reporting: Islam -- Questions & Answers," will attempt to answer five questions viewers submitted. They are: "what is Islam? Why do radicals feel violence is justified? Is Western culture at odds with Islam? Where is the moderate Muslim voice? How can we all get along?" It will be Sawyer's first primetime special since taking over the "World News" anchor chair.
This Sunday, Christiane Amanpour will host a special episode of "This Week." ABC News said Muslims and non-Muslims will debate issues surrounding Islam in America on the show.
Imam Rauf of the Ground Zero mega mosque understands better than most the pivotal role the media plays to deceive, obfuscate and advance Islam. He said here:
And there are different geographies, different subject areas, so we have designed our Cordoba Initiative to be designed, in order words we have 5 major areas of our program. So we have foreign policy, is one area, you have communications is another area, you have education as the third area, for example, you have intra-Islamic issues is the fourth area, arts and culture is the fifth area. And lets say this Abrahamic pathwalk may be in the arts and culture, a blend of the arts and culture and you know maybe the religious aspect in some respect, but it’s kind of an interfaith type of activity. Now in the area of foreign policy, you have different issues, number one is the Palestinian conflict, cause if you heal that, you will have contributed a lot. If the entertainment media, the news media, was broadcasted in print, describe and speak about the issues in a different way it can help change perceptions profoundly, because it’s the media, which helps shape perceptions to a great degree.
