Must See Video- Dispatches: Undercover Mosque The Ultimate Insult: Francis Bok : Escape From Slavery

The Ultimate Insult

Trying to discover just exactly what the "ultimate insult" to Islam really is.

o  Muslims committed the huge blunder of revealing their vulnerability [cartoon flap]. Now the world knows what hurts them. When you find your opponent’s weak spot, it is exactly where you want to hit him… If Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated.  

o  Muslim psychology…is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter…  

o  How much ridicule is enough? Until it hurts. The pain of shame must become bigger than the comfort of clinging to this false fetish. When you see their eyes are popping out of their eyeballs, their veins bulging in their necks, foam forming at their mouths, and they are ready to explode, you know that the remedy is working. Give them more. They will either die of heart attacks or they will come to their senses and recover from this insanity.  

o  Every one of us must become a cyberwarrior and mock Muhammad, Islam and the Muslims. Use your talent. Draw cartoons based on the hadith and the Quran. You can find tons of ridiculous stuff in these books to lampoon. Write articles, lyrics, jokes, plays, do whatever you can to ridicule Muhammad the prophet pretender and Muslims. Don’t heed to their howls and cries.

Francis Bok : Escape From Slavery


"As a seven-year-old boy growing up in the southern Sudan, Bok was caught up in a raid on a regional market center when marauders from the north set upon the market, killing the men and kidnapping the women and children to work as farm slaves. He went from a loving and supportive extended family to the brutality of slavery in a strange land and culture, dominated by Muslims who considered him a Christian infidel. After enduring 10 years of slavery, Bok escaped to freedom in Cairo, where he became a U.N. refugee, eventually making his way to the U.S. at the age of 21. Having learned Arabic in Northern Sudan and English in America, Bok, with incredible determination, became involved in the antislavery movement, speaking around the country while seeking to earn a high-school degree. Yet it is his simple account of being a child cut off from his family and culture that shows the inhumanity of slavery."
--Booklist's review

I must add though, that having read this book about a year ago, one shocking aspect to it is that Francis was called by his new family of "owners" only "abeed". This word is the same in Arabic for "black African" as well as "slave". Can't get much more to the point than that. His "insult" and crime to the Northern Sudanese Arabic raiders? He was black, not Muslim, not Arab. Sometimes not being Arab can be "the ultimate insult, as we have seen on other occasions. It astounds me that the plight of the Dinka has been ignored since my childhood. I always figured adults would "fix this problem" by the time I grew up. Yet it STILL continues. My highest praise for Francis Bok (formerly Buk) who endured things I cannot begin to imagine.

This is the truth that we'll never see in MSM, I had heard of this brave young man's story, through a book review on line.

What's a matter with this planet? We idolize the 'crazed hollywood stars' like they were gods, (well not me) and yet who or whom I consider a hero, like this man, never gets so much as an eight second sound bite.
