From Dhimmi To Islamoawareness
Like most non muslims, their was a time in my life that I knew very little about Islam.
I recall seeing a terrorist attack on TV, I believe it was 1997 and a Muslim opened fire on some tourists on the Observation deck of the Empire State Building. He was attacking the enemies of Palestine.
This was a period in my life that I worked with a very diverse cross-section of people from all faiths. I accepted everyone. I had three Muslim friends, all named Mohamed, go figure. Two of them had Anglicized their names, lucky, as brothers Mohammed and Mohammed were known as Michael and Harry.
One night my Jewish friend David had come over for a visit and I was playing chess with Mohammed. This was their first meeting and David happily extended his hand, Mohammed was reluctant and returned a ‘dead-fish’ handshake. What remained of that night was an awkward silence, until Mohammed, a Taxi driver, decided to go back to work.
I have known David and his wife for over 20 years and had babysat his young boys. His oldest boy is now 6ft tall and an exceptional soccer player. David was born in England and lived for a long time in Israel, where he was a tank commander.
Fast forward to September 2001 and I had been living in the USA since March 2000, in North Carolina. 911 is not a day I could ever forget. I remember being in Yahoo chat that morning and someone posted that a plane had flown into the WTC. I thought, ‘yeah, ok sure. Another person posted the same message. I went over to a few news sites to check and they weren’t loading. I finally put the TV on and watched live, the second plane hits the WTC.
I was in a daze for the rest of the day; I sat glued to the TV, numb. George Bush was to later say that Islam is a religion of peace. I knew no better.
I have lived in three different countries and the thing that sticks out a lot in regards to 911 was the amazing outpouring of Patriotism, following 911. Don’t you recall how flags were just everywhere? On cars and buildings and people on the side of the road were waving them, buoying our spirits.
Where is THAT America hiding now? Not even ten years after over 3,000 people were so callously and cowardly killed, we seem to have lost our way again.
About two years ago, all I did on Facebook was play one of these games where you are require to make lots of connections. One of these connections was a member of the online group called the JIDF. A group that fights for the removal of Anti Semitic and Islamic hate groups, including Holocaust denial groups.
I couldn’t fathom, who could deny such a shocking event as the Holocaust. I took a look at a few of these groups. Over 95 percent of the people in these group were Muslims.
I was disgusted, shocked and even angry.
After talking at length to my new JIDF friend, he pointed me to a few non MSM websites to look at.
I created a new account, gave myself a new name, VIN, something short, I thought. I sharpened my sword, (my pen) and away I went.
I went headlong into open groups fighting every Muslim I could, often many at once. I got hammered constantly, I didn’t care. I kept coming back, fighting. One day Facebook deleted my account, then again and again. I got deleted 6 times before I realized that I need to change direction slightly. So I created my first group, ‘Islam, the Evil of our time’.
At its peak it had 122 members. I quit fighting zombies and now dedicated all of my time to research and education and started my first Weekly Synopsis. My first synopsis was very sarcastic, it was a venting tool and it proved to be very popular, it was also published on over 12 different websites.
At one point I admined 13 groups until I decided to focus on one. That group got up to 5600 members until Facebook introduced its selective archiving or deletion.
I have since been deleted two more times by Facebook and as a back-up, I created this website.
I ve often thought of and even wanted to, give up. We all at sometime lose faith or lose direction. With the help of the BIG man, I intend on doing this until, with YOUR help, I will have nothing more to report.
God Bless you all and thank you for your support!
