Powerful anti Islam wild cards.
The Joker Is Wild
A few days ago, the words, The Joker Is Wild, kept going through my head. I thought of a game I played a lot in childhood - Crazy Eights. The joker was wild - and that could change everything.
Lately I've been feeling that the world is in some strange game - just the tiniest bit like Crazy Eights. My sense: there are wild cards, and they could change everything.
Re games. There are rules. And good players have strategies.
In this game, I don't know the rules, not all of them anyway, not by a long shot. I'm just trying to figure out effective strategies.
Wild cards. Hitler was a wild card. So was Churchill.
Much more recently, the video of Muhammad's life is a wild card - though well before that video was released, Islamist plans were in place to move against the US embassy where Chris Stevens was killed. The violence was not a wild card: it was part of a long-term strategy.
Obama is certainly a wild card - an American president with a Muslim father, an American president very positively disposed to Islam. An American president who spoke of commitment to support Israel before his election, and is shifting.
So many wild cards.
In a tiny level, I see us all as wild cards.
One person wrote to me, "the displayed cowardice of the West in the face of Islamic jihad is emboldening Muslims around the world."
That is one reason why I think counter-jihad wild cards are important - as are powerful strategies. I'm more at home with wild cards.
And as I said, I see us all as potential wild cards in what is happening between Islam and the West - and we all know that one wild card can make all the difference.
Obama - a wild card.
The video on Muhammad - a wild card.
The murder of the American ambassador.
So many wild cards.
And a "game" with very high stakes. The values of the West vs Islamic doctrine. (I also keep doubting that something as weird as this game could be happening. But then more info comes in.)
May our wild cards turn this game in major ways to benefit the cause of freedom of thought and speech, the cause of safety to think and act and live fully.
All the best to all of us,
PPS. One great Islamist strategy: yelling this is anti Islam, anti Islam, criticism of Islam, criticism of Islam, Islam religion of peace, Islam religion of peace, any time anyone points out anything to do with the game. The outcry makes use of 2 strategies: first, offense if the best defense, and second, taqiyya, deliberate deception of outsiders.
