99 percent taqiyya

PBS's Online News Hour is fawning over the pro-Islam comic called "The 99", published in Kuwait. I may have written about that at least once before, or about a book from the same publishers (Teshkeel) and now it's turned up in the news again, on a propaganda site as bad as PBS, no less. What raised my eyebrows in the video recording they have was when they spoke of characters with "violent attributes" like Mumita the Destroyer and Darr the Afflictor. I should think that can give a clue or two of how this is not exactly something inspiring, yet PBS would rather the public think otherwise. And did I hear correctly circa 3:00 one saying "it represents humankind"? A religion that contains abominations like this?

Most interesting thing is how it was censored by Saudi Arabia partly due to prayer. But that doesn't mean it isn't still propaganda that whitewashes the Religion of Peace.

Update: cartoonist Bosch Fawstin talks about what could be the perfect response to this propaganda over at Big Hollywood, his new graphic novel called The Infidel.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
