My personal experience has borne this out. When I do nothing more than tell stories about Muhammad, it changes the way my listeners feel about Islam, without any arguments or strife — without anyone trying to "defend Islam." There's nothing to defend. I'm just telling a story.
I think this means that as simple as it sounds, this is one of the most important goals we should aim for: To get an epic, high-production movie made about Muhammad's life, perhaps based on Burleigh's book, It's All About Muhammad. Getting this movie finished and into theaters will be difficult to do. It will create an intense amount of resistance. But I believe it will advance our cause as nothing else can.
As it says in The Good Must Associate, there are at least three tried-and-true strategies we should be applying: Gather allies, coordinate efforts, and concentrate force at a decisive point. The creation of an honest movie about Muhammad's life is a decisive point we should concentrate on.
Once people understand what Islam really is, everything else will be relatively easy. We'll just say no. When orthodox Muslims push for concessions, we'll say no. When they want special accommodations, we'll say no. When they want to put Islamic countries on the United Nations Human Rights Council, we'll say hell no, are you kidding? When they ask for handouts (aid from wealthier countries) we'll say no. When they want to immigrate into our countries, we'll say no. When they want to join the military or teach the FBI how to deal with the "Muslim community" we'll say no. When a politician who is in any way conciliatory toward Muslims wants to get elected, we'll say no. When programs on television try to portray Islam as a religion of peace, nobody will watch it and it will be booed off the airwaves. When a Muslim advocacy group tries to put whitewashed lies into our children's school textbooks, we'll say no. When a lawyer tries to get Islamic law applied in any form in our countries' courtrooms, we'll just say no.
In other words, every place Islam tries to expand or advance, it will run into a wall of certainty about its real agenda, and it will find no way forward.
All of this and more can come about when the general population understands what Islamic doctrine really says. And almost none of this can come about as long as the population remains ignorant. This is our battle ground. This is where the fight is being waged, and it is being fought by ordinary citizens. You and me.
In our own private lives, we can increase the number of no-longer-ignorant people. And we can keep our minds on this goal of getting a movie made. If you know of a producer, a friend of a friend in the movie business, a playwright, or if you can in any way aid this effort now or any time in the future, try to advance this goal. Islam needs to be exposed for what it is. And a good movie of Muhammad's life would be the best way to accomplish it.
Someone just left a link in the comments to an interview with the author of Son of Hamas who wants to create a movie about Muhammad. Check it out: Time to Expose Muhammad.
