I just got back. I had TIVO'ed Diane Sawyer and ABC 's crack team's report on Islam. Forgive me for suggesting you watch it. What crap. Dangerous garbage. I hope America sees through this proselytizing for Islam. I am a half hour into this surrender stupidity and I wish to offer my apology for even posting about it. Sawyer spent the first half hour completely whitewashing Islam and advancing a fallacious Islamic supremacist narrative, da'wah. She got nothing right on Islam. Nothing.
This is da'wah -- invitation to Islam. Sawyer and co. have tossed concretes and history out the window to surrender to the Islamic supremacist narrative. Ugh.
ABC taped close to three hours of interviews with me (more with travel, etc.) and they broadcast none of it.A deliberate waste of five hours of my precious time. Yes, Islam is better to women than the West. Yes, there is no jihad, the millions of victims slaughtered are an incidental (but not mentionable) historical footnote. Where was Wafa Sultan, Ibn Warraq, Robert Spencer, Bat Ye'or?
Shut off your TVs. Reject your surrender by proxy.
UPDATE: Write ABC. The only lucid and accurate moments in this piece of propaganda came from the great Americans who video-ed their questions in. They get it.
UPDATE: I think I used the wrong word in the headline. It was more horrible than ridiculous. I am not going to exhaust myself fisking the misrepresentation of Christianity, Judaism, the subjugation of women, and on and on.....
No accident this. It was designed to whitewash Islam as any danger. As in, why are we fighting?
I have been covering the media's incompetence and misinformation on Islam for years, but this was jaw-dropping. It was far worse than anything I could ever imagine; it was a total whitewash, a white-out.
Kids playing football, a drowned girl uniting a community, progressive girls in Egypt who speak American street slang. Well, at least it draws the battle lines clearly. It is beyond hope that the left/liberals will ever look at Islam as a threat -- not up until the knives are at their throats. Ten years, and they are as steadfastly ignorant and married to their multiculturalism as they ever were.
They can neveer change. No, it is hopeless futility to believe that the media/left will examine this, or that they will abandon their dogma, or that they will follow any path except that of "changing course: towards an US Muslim engagement.
