There’s been a lot of talk recently about the “Islam is Peace” public relations campaign which is being waged vigorously across various media in the UK. It is a well-funded and slickly-produced initiative designed to induce acceptance of British Muslims and counteract the “negative stereotypes” about Islam that have become so unfortunately prevalent since the 9-11 and 7-7 attacks.
The appealing images of photogenic men, women, and children resemble the ads we often see here in the USA, and they serve the same politically correct and Multicultural purposes. Take, for example, a typical poster or billboard for a major bank: in it you are likely to see a cheerful, prosperous, and immaculately groomed Hispanic family, in a brightly-lit modern kitchen or out on the perfect lawn in front of their fully-mortgaged house.
The message is: these young professional Latinos are well-heeled exemplars of suburban Americans, just like the rest of us, a boon to our multi-ethnic high-tech society. This is yet another manifestation of the Big Lie, since the undeniable truth of Hispanic immigration is that the vast majority of the recent arrivals are poor, illiterate, and live in substandard housing in cultural ghettoes. Statistically speaking, they are not the mortgage-holders out there frolicking on that perfect lawn: they are the ones who come and tend that same lawn in the hot sun for six dollars an hour while the perfect children are at school and their immaculate parents are at work.
Slick non-profit ad campaigns like “Islam is Peace” are similarly designed to obscure truths and foster illusions that powerful groups have a vested interest in creating. Most Muslims in Britain are not well-dressed perfectly-groomed (and in the case of the women, perfectly-veiled) yuppies who are just like the rest of us except that they pray five times a day towards Mecca. No, the truth is somewhat different.
And the message that “Islam is Peace” propagates has elaborate and artfully phrased deceptions, carefully designed to serve the Great Jihad’s purposes. In the video embedded below, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch gives us a short tutorial on some of the deliberately embedded taqiyyah that can be found in the ad campaign:
Anjem Chaudry, a radical British Muslim, is prominently featured in this video stating that Muslims alone can be considered innocent, so that as far as the infidels are concerned, the ad campaign’s condemnation of “violence against innocents” means precisely… nothing.
The Islam is Peace Campaign aims to address the negative perceptions and stereotypes of Islam and British Muslims. We intend to do this through media engagement to reach out to the wider community across the United Kingdom. We hope to start this process through a multi-pronged approach…
Notice that it is the perceptions and stereotypes of Islam that need to be corrected. Nothing about Islam itself needs to be changed or corrected, because Islam is perfect. Complete and perfect knowledge, all a human being might ever need to know, is contained within the Koran. Discussing any change or improvement is an absolute blasphemy.
That’s why only the kuffar must be changed. Their attitudes, their antagonism, their Islamophobia — those are the real problems, which the “Islam is Peace” campaign aims to overcome.
That the perceptions might be based in reality, that the stereotypes might have some validity, are not to be discussed. In this endeavor the PC regime is Islam’s greatest ally, because according to the high dogma of Orthodox Multiculturalism, these things may not even be spoken. They shouldn’t even be thought — they are doubleplus ungood.
That’s why it’s important to accept and celebrate our Islamophobia. We’re Islamophobic and proud of it!
The term “Islamophobia” is designed to stigmatize the person who dares think impure thoughts. It’s intended to put us beyond the pale, to cast us into the outer darkness. Only by embracing the epithet can we remove its sting as an insult. It’s OK to be afraid of Islam: any rational and well-informed infidel would be afraid of it.
In any case, the average Briton who lives in a working class neighborhood in any major city knows that Islam is not peace. He knows that Islam means honor killings, the rape of young infidel girls, gangs of violent “youths” who hold all non-Muslims in sneering contempt, and the gathering in mosques of large groups of men to plan violent jihad against him and his fellow Britons.
But maybe the “Islam is Peace” campaign, with its relentless multimedia offensive, will convince him otherwise. Perhaps the barrage of propaganda will have its desired effect.
When that happens, it will be time to update George Orwell for the 21st century. The new novel could be called 2084.
In it a giant poster of a grim-faced bearded man in a turban hangs on every corner. Underneath it is the ubiquitous statement: Big Imam is Watching You!
Ubiquitous slogans are printed on huge banners and displayed on all the grimy public buildings:
Freedom is Slavery. Islam is Peace.
