Michelle Malkin's post Who is Rakan Ben Williams? picks up on a disturbing threat, compliments of the GIMF - Global Islamic Media Front - an active part of the digital jihad on the web that Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld said recently we are not good at combatting.
Rakan - based on an Islamic hero of the Middle Ages and now reconstituted as a Superman or Batman type hero for Islamic youth, it part of the moniker adopted by Rakan Ben Williams - allegedly a white Englishman converted to Islam.
Debate has been raging on the Web about how this should be regarded - and why the MSM hasn't covered it.
But hey, look for Hollywood to option this from the GIMF in its own jihad against the US - and put some dope like Keanu Reeves to intone this jihadi hate screedage in Matrix like portentiousness - making gobs of money on the tie-ins, international licensing rights, video games, action figures, etc. - and underwriting the movement. Come to think of it though - what better way to trivialize and sell out jihadism than to give it the full Hollywood mistreatment, wear it out like Brokeback so that it is yesterday's news - and neuter it down to a cheesy series with one too many installments. Strange things like this happen - Taliban student at Yale, bin Laden relatives with reality shows and books, Arafat with Nobel Peace Prize - the list is endless...
