|Taking Action. Easy with the small frog in the living room. Not with the big menace, Islamism, political Islam. Diary blogs, blog journals on life.|
A tiny frog in the living room
... and on how hard it can be to know what to do when confronted by something as huge as Islam's growing presence in the West and the many pressures against Western freedoms.
First, the tiny frog in the living room.
It was supper time for the cats. I called them. One didn't come. I heard a meow in the living room. Was the cat sick? Hurt? Another meow, an urgent one.
Mission accomplished. A sense of accomplishment.
I wish dealing with Islamism, political Islam - call it what you like - were that easy.
I've created an interview series - Personal Journeys Toward Difficult Truths -
I've also done a number of videos - on my vision of ethics, on thoughts on getting heard when speaking unpopular truths, on what I see happening in the West re Islam - but again, such small things.
I'd like to be convinced there's a quick and easy fix. But it's not good to underestimate what one is up against.
If there is a quick and easy fix, great. I know I can't count on it.
There's something else. The frog, tiny as it was, was visible. Islamism - in much of my world, it can't be seen. People wear what they're used to wearing, think what they're used to thinking.
How to choose what to do? So far, I've done what it feels right to do. It's never felt like enough. That hasn't stopped me from taking action. But it's so much harder for me, than with a hungry cat or an endangered froglet.
