I was reading an article on NewsBusters this morning regarding a statement made by the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia. (The article can be found here.) In a nutshell, this Grand Mufti called for the destruction of all churches in the region.
(An aside: I believe “nutshell” is a quite appropriate adjective. But I digress.)
The article also indicates that, despite the incendiary nature of these remarks, there has been nary a peep out of the mainstream media. The author posits that it’s either because they consider it “old news” or that the Saudis are still paying Western media outlets to publish or broadcast only positive news about Islam and Saudi Arabia. Both possibilities are true, I guess.
But here’s another possibility: What if the Western media is actually in league with Islam? You know, kind of along the lines of Lenin’s “useful idiots” from the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917?
How’s this for a theory – in addition to paying the media to publish positive stories about Islam, the Islamists have also promised the Western media a “place at the table,” as it were. In other words, a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” arrangement.
Crazy, I know. But look around: There are crazier things happening every day of which we would never have dreamed. Why is this any crazier?
What the media doesn’t understand – in fact, what the enablers of evil have never understood – is that they are doing nothing more than appeasing the crocodile, hoping it will eat them last. And it will, if this is allowed to continue.
The media is OK with the Grand Mufti’s attack on Christianity (what other religion has “churches?”) and they’re OK with Obama’s attack on Christianity (the “contraception mandate”), but let anyone breathe a word, true or not, about Islam, and the wailing and gnashing of teeth begins.
But Islam is not a “religion,” per se, despite the references to a supreme being, prayers, stories of miracles, etc. Islam is an ideology. Here is what I posted to NewsBusters in comment to the article:
Islam is an ideology that has as its only goal world domination (the establishment of the global “caliphate”). In order to dominate, Islam first has to subjugate. And those who won’t go along willingly will be destroyed, in their view.
The always fatal flaw in the plans of those who seek to dominate and control is the assumption that those who they desire to control will simply roll over. As history shows, this has rarely happened (the French surrender to the Nazis in WWII is the only recent example that pops to mind).
The unfortunate thing is that, in resisting subjugation, the world may tear itself apart. Anybody who looks at what’s going on today, and considers it thoughtfully, cannot reject that possibility.
But the mainstream media would rather you not consider that consequence, so they simply don’t report the news.
