Converting Propaganda.According to our local, friendly MuslimVillagers an American commander with the ISAF over in Afghanistan has converted to islam.
That is, of course, his choice, but there is a remarkable dearth of coverage across the western media players of this occurrence.
A quick google of "cormier michel" brings up Michel Cormier as the first link.
Not exactly breaking headlines around the world.
I probably shouldn't regard this matter so lightly, as it was also covered in extensive detail in Afghanistan.
And in Pakistan.
Over at Discardedlies, there appears to be some doubt as to the veracity of this report.
Mind you, if it makes the news in Romania, then I may have to take this a little more seriously.
Where are the people like Bilal Hussein to make sure that such a propaganda coup gets out into the wider world? Not that blogs aren't doing a fine job already, of course. (Add mine to the list.)
After all, as one MVer says:
Allhu Akbar. The conquer has been conquered. Just the beauty of Islam.
Somehow, I don't think the "conquer" has been conquered. Unless this is some arcane use of the word that escapes me.
