Weapons of Influence in the War of Ideas


BELOW IS an excellent list of materials you can use to help the education of your friends and family. The list was contributed anonymously, and is reprinted with permission. I have often recommended sharing DVDs as a way to influence your friends, but as our anonymous list-maker has pointed out, sharing audiobooks is a great idea too. Lots of people have long commutes to work every day, and wouldn't mind listening to something you loaned them.

Anonymous said: I agree that DVD's are more readily viewed than books are read. For that reason, I have offered to loan out my own copies of "audio books." I encourage my friends to play them as they commute to-from work.

Audio-book editions for the following titles:

It makes your commute more interesting, it gives you lots of fascinating things to share with your friends, and it helps you do the most important thing a citizen warrior can do: Open up conversations with your friends and family so you can educate and persuade them.

Islam: What the West Needs to Know

Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West

Holy Land: Christians in Peril an excellent documentary about the April 2002 terrorist hostage crisis at Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity

The Silent Exodus this film provides important evidence that the exodus of 1.5 million forgotten Jewish refugees from the Arab and Muslim world began long before Israel's creation — and was largely fueled by ancient sectarian hatred.

Suicide Killers a disturbing journey deep into a culture that few can comprehend — that of suicide bombers.

Hostages of Hatred Pierre Rehov sets out to tell us the real story of those men, women and children, who have been shamefully used as mere pawns for over 50 years, by Arab leaders at first, by Palestinian leaders later on and until this very day but also by the United Nations' body that was specially created to supposedly take care of them : the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, UNWRA.

Far too many important books don't have audio versions.

LibriVox, is a site dedicated to acoustical liberation of books in the public domain.

Back in my college days, I volunteered to read technical text books to assist a blind student who became my maid of honor at my wedding. Since those days, technology has advanced a great deal but not everyone can afford the equipment, so there is still a service to be provided.

There are a multitude of books of interest to the counterjihad that should become audiobooks.

I am currently exploring this effort myself. Books written by Apostates such as Ali Sina Psychobiography of Mo and Walid Shoebat Why I Left the Jihad would be of personal interest. I would need to get their permission for such an endeavor. There are books long out of print — novels like: 1946 edition of Sir Naked Blade evaded all politically correct editing would be of personal interest as well.

Here's just a couple of paragraphs from the opening chapter :

There was no escape for the Little Jesus. Becalmed in this glare of blue sea, with no whisper of wind out of the grayish sky, she lay as if yoked to the unbroken waters of the Mediterranean. Sails drooped on the yards like dried skin and the pitch was hot and wet in the seams. Helpless, she lay while the pirate galleys heaved over the horizon, their oars lifting, falling, centipede-like legs swaying them close to the unmoving English victim. Low ruffs of foam stirred by the dipping blades were the only movement, it seemed, on that dark sea. The Little Jesus waited as if bewitched, as if damned, while her crew leaned on the bulwarks, watching silently, white-faced and steady-fingered. There was nothing further for them to do. All was prepared for battle: cannon loaded, water-buckets filled, the slow-matches burning over them, while powder-kegs stood by pyramids of black shot. Guns and pistols were cocked, powder drying the shut pans, swords, were unsheathed and spat back the sunlight in flickering silver.

"Friend, said the master standing unhatted on the poop, "it is time for prayer, for our time may be short. In the hands of God this day lie not only our souls but our sinful bodies and my ship's cargo. Let us pray God for the strength of David or Samson against these infidels. Only with the Lord's help can we conquer, for we are outnumbered beyond numbering. But let not your stomachs fall at that. We can have no mightier ally than God and this ship is God's ship in honor and love of His Son, while they have but the foolish Allah and his cheat Mohammad to shield them. Take heart fellows and pray that we be not forgotten this day in heaven.

About the Silent Refugees, I think the comment is not totally accurate. The Jews that lived in Arab lands had done so for millenia. Arab and Jewish culture were so intertwined that some of the Sephardic great thinkers wrote in Arabic. However, the Second Exodus was not a result of long time hatred harbored by the Arabs against the Jews. It was a direct result of the creation of Israel. I am such a forgotten Jew, who refuses to forget. But you must get the story straight.

Thank you, Aimee. Can you provide us with more details about the story? Let's get the story straight.

Aimee may be interested in reconsidering her view after exploring Dr. Andrew Bostom's most recent tome . . The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism

Neither ak's comment or the one above about Silent Refugees is complete without consideration of well documented historic evidence.

Ok I have finally found the post where I was asked to elaborate. Andrew Bostom's book is not the first and last word on the matter. He can say what he wants, but as a Sephardic Jew, I know that even though Jews had lived in "dhimmi" status under Arab rule, there were specific laws developed for them, and much more so for the Christians,who outnumbered them, and that Arabs considered idolators because they allowed images in their churches. The Arabs, as far back as history will take us, had special rules for "People of the Book", or the Jews, whom they recognized as special since this was directly said to them in the Qu'ran. Though they had dhimmi status, the Arabs went to great pains to elucidate that no harm should come to them. I am currently reading Dr. Marc Cohen's Book "Under the Cross and Crescent" which is a factual comparison of the life of Jews under Roman/Christian rule and under Muslim rule. Though I am not through with the book (for which I am to write a review), it is unequivocal that Jews suffered much more severely at the hands of Christians than Arabs. The very basis of that virulent hatred and violence stems from the death of Jesus Christ and is at the source of every act of aggression against the Jews.
If you had lived in the Middle East, you'd understand that there are striking similarities between Sharia law, and Halachic law. The Arabic and Hebrew language have uncanny resemblances. Dietary laws are almost identical. There are no competing views between the Arabs and Jews as far as who is God and who is not, as with the Judeo-Christian problem. Yes, there were isolated instances of Arab massacres of Jews, but all pale in comparison with what the Jews suffered at the hands of Christians.
I will come back to you once I have finished Dr Cohen's book which is fascinating and elucidates all the above and more.
I am also translating a book right now into French of one of the Jewish exiles from Egypt, of which I know many. I am knee deep into this matter, and don't see myself getting out of it anytime soon. It is my own history.

Excellent post, and a good idea to pass audio CDs around. I just gave one of my work colleagues "White Gold" to listen to as it happens.

The notion that Islam is a "religion of peace" which has brought only good things to the West is exploded by that one book. If anyone tries to advance that idea, one can stop them in their tracks by saying just two words: "Thomas Pellow".

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
