Raising Public Awareness of Islam Using Art

Thursday

We thought this was an interesting and, at least under certain conditions, possibly an effective way to get through to people without saying a word. An artist travels around Germany to photograph beautiful public statues of women, then veils them and photographs them again. This creates a simple and elegant communication.

We found it sad and disturbing to see these beautiful statues veiled. And something else: When the statue is veiled it becomes painfully clear that it obliterates the individuality of the woman. It blanks her out. She becomes a cipher. So much of our unique personalities is revealed in our faces. The veil hides it from the world.

Follow the links below to watch Rosato's two videos (slide shows really):


You can also see Rosato's photographs on Facebook here. In a short post about this, LastDaysNews writes:

Repression leads to resistance. Censoring speech leads to more covert forms of messaging. Political correctness gives birth to more sophisticated forms of protest. A mysterious German artist calling himself Rosato has begun putting Burkas over the heads of female statues in the park to warn about the impact of Islamization on Europe.

A picture says a thousand words and these pictures communicate even more than that without violating a single law. 

One of the qualities free people have in more abundance than those enslaved by restrictive ideologies is creativity. Let's use it to our advantage. Think now: What creative action can you take to get people to take a second look at Islam and stop blindly accepting the comforting lie that Islam is really a religion of peace?

These before and after images show very powerfully how Islamic garb of this kind has simultaneously both a dehumanising and an imperious effect.

Article Spotlight

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).
