Propaganda Islam Style

Denmark’s cartoon jihad was a lesson learned with a bang (and a bomb). Dearborn’s free speech jihad has had no such watershed moment. It is hard to remember when things began to change. Too many citizens still fail to recognize the change.

They say that if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water,
it will leap out right away to escape the danger.

But, if you put a frog in a kettle that is filled with water that is cool and pleasant,
and then you gradually heat the kettle until it starts boiling,
the frog will not become aware of the threat until it is too late.
The frog's survival instincts are geared towards detecting sudden changes.

This story illustrates the importance of watching slowly changing trends in the environment, and not just the sudden changes.

The Denmark cartoons turned the heat up to boil so quickly – even the most cognitively impaired frogs were able to register the life threatening change in temperature. The Danes have suffered but, they have no excuse for not clearly recognizing their chance to make a life saving leap from the pot of boiling water. Dearborn’s pot boil was gradual. The slow rise in temperature has slowed our cognition and made us lazy. We are forgetting to think and to question what we see and hear in the news. We grow more and more lethargic as the heat rises to a boil and we failed to recognize our chance to jump.

The jump should not be the move out of Dearborn. It should be a leap of recognition and a commensurate response to Muslim leaders who are using demagoguery and threats to strangle our schools, government, and media.

The Islamic Jihad is not just about bombs and physical destruction. Jihad by sword is one method but, there is also jihad by pen.

How many readers out there are aware that ACCESS (Dearborn’s social welfare agency for Muslim immigrants) was raided by the Feds on Wednesday, 12/6/06? You would have found this information buried in Saturday’s paper. Read the brief and contradictory article here.

I believe that our fundamental right to safety was somehow violated here. Our country is at war with so called Islamic Extremists. These terrorist don’t generally arrive and stay here legally. ACCESS is in charge of helping Muslim immigrants get into the country. This is a lot like letting the inmates run the asylum. If ACCESS was raided I believe that deserves a headline and follow-up. This is our money in our town – don’t they have an obligation to speak and let us know what this is about?

Tuesday, December 12, 2006 the Freep’s Niraj Warikoo turns the heat up a little more with a headline about Muslim furor. This article was not buried three days after the fact. It was right on cue with its shocking headlines. I am pleased to note Niraj appears to have located the thesaurus tool bar. The “Muslim Outrage” headlines have become a dull sword. Jihad is not as effective if its' tools are not sharpened. The thesaurus is a handy sharpening tool. Muslim outrage headlines are not News. How about a headline shouting, “Muslims Remain Calm and Optimistic”? But, instead we have the newest of jihad outrage expressions: “Furor”. Can you feel the temperature rising Dearborn? Furor sounds heated and nazi-esque. It does not sound peaceful. I will personally think twice before I say or do anything that might create “Furor” - or maybe not.

No clear moment marks the time when Dearborn's pot began to boil. This blog is perhaps the first overt sign of frogs beginning to jump out – but, we don’t plan to leave. We are determined to wake up lethargic citizens and impassion them with our boiling furor. We want to turn the heat down.

We invite anyone who feels the same to join, write, or spread the word.

The local Dearborn papers have reported nothing on the ACCESS raid. But, there is a nice picture of Imam Qazwini smiling with his pal from Iraq in the Dearborn P & G.

A modest proposal to deal with Fatwas on Danish cartoonists.

Bring Ronbo The Head Of The Mad Mullah

Nice blog, btw, I got the link from the British Alliance website.

I added this link to my blog.
