To Serve Man By: Julia Gorin
FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, January 24, 2007

In a recent piece by Rabbi Avi Shafran, the rabbi asks, “You suddenly begin noticing signs bearing Arabic script in buses. What do you do?”

Well, what bus riders in Richmond, Virginia did was call the local Transit Authority to find out what it might know about the signs, which had been turning up on buses and the walls of local universities.

The Associated Press and other media outlets subtly scoffed at the concerned citizens, explaining that the Arabic phrases were in fact innocuous — translating as things like “paper or plastic?” or “paper, scissors, rock” or “I’m a little teapot.” Those translations in fact appeared at the bottom of the signs, along with admonishments like “Misunderstanding can make anything scary” or “What did you think it said?”

The provocative ads were the work of the Virginia Interfaith Center, which placed them in public venues as part of an effort to change the fact that, as the center’s executive director put it, “as soon as people see Arabic, they immediately make an association with terrorism.”

Imagine German writing turning up on public buses and university walls in 1942, and the citizenry being expected to not bat an eyelash, with the Germans and the media, who do the enemy’s bidding, admonishing us, “What did you think it said?”

But Islam and our media want us to hit the snooze button again. When we see ominous Arabic writing (and for now, all Arabic writing is ominous -- sorry), we’re supposed to think “Oh, it just says ‘I’m a little teapot.’” In fact, intelligence shouldn’t even be intercepting Arabic conversations, because the talkers are merely discussing recycling programs or calling themselves teapots.

It’s all reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode titled “To Serve Man,” in which aliens descend upon the earth and allay the fears of a panicked populace. The head alien assures the humans that his people come in peace and their purpose is “to serve man.” He carries around with him a book of the same title, To Serve Man.

In the end, we discover that this is a cookbook. The aliens are here to eat us.

Similarly, an article last May in something called the Asian Tribune — titled “Russia becoming a Muslim state!” — points out:

Although the Islamist clerics and missions have their hidden and open missions in mind, from their faces and sermons, it is really difficult to identify anything. They initially spread the message of peace, and end up with the poison of religious hatred and jihad. These groups are even gradually capturing Russian media, through investments via Western countries, which are actually Arab money. They are even spending money in giving voice and strength to Muslim leadership, with the ultimate goal of taking over the power of Kremlin.

There is some statistical corroboration to justify this alarm. Former Boston Herald columnist Don Feder quoted some statistics in a speech he gave in New York recently, relating that “according to a November 21st Washington Times story, by 2015, more than half the soldiers in the Russian Army will be Muslims. And you thought the Czar was bad! By 2020, over 20 percent of Russia’s population will be reading the Koran, religiously.”

According to that Asian Tribune article, there are 8,000 mosques in Russia today — to surpass 25,000 by the end of 2015. This made me think of the unstoppable mosque-building frenzy that’s afoot in all corners of the world. It has always seemed to me that there couldn’t possibly be enough congregants to fill all these mosques. That’s when I drifted back into a Twilight Zone state of mind, and realized what all the gratuitous mosque projects are for: they’re for us.

Just as the Communists did, Muslims pretend to want to be participants in our system, then use our democratic ways to swallow us up.

So to the AP and other media who scoffed at the concerned citizens of Richmond calling in to the Transit Authority, and to the Virginia Interfaith Center responsible for this treasonous campaign, I ask: How do we know that the “innocuous” Arabic script on the buses isn’t code for “The nuclear suitcase is in the teapot,” or “the blue recycling bin is for plastic explosives, and the red one is for paper messages”?

Regardless, it’s all the more reason to celebrate diversity by learning Arabic — so that each of us can listen to Arabic conversations and read even Arabic writing that Islam's propagandists don’t want us to read and, if need be, make a citizen’s arrest. Lucky for Virginians, they can legally carry guns.
