Militant Islam Awareness Day: September 11

September 11, 2008

Today, September 11, is Militant Islamic Awareness Day: a day to commemorate the achievements of Islamic supremacists throughout history, such as the sack of Khartoum (1885), numerous attempts to invade Europe, and of course the terrorist action that killed 3000 innocent people in 2001.

Cavendish, Richard. 1989. Legends of the World, Crown Publishers, Inc. New York. p. 334

As with many myths and legends, the concept of a secret or true name has a very real basis. In myths and stories, discovery of someone’s or something’s true name conveys magical powers over the person or object in question. In practice, someone who learns the true nature of a thing, such as the culture of an organization, also gains considerable power over it. More importantly, the power to name a thing is the power to control it. If we can name militant “Islam” in this manner, we can destroy it utterly. (more…)
