In the story of the three blind men in a room with an elephant, one man declares that the elephant is like a pillar as he touches the elephant’s leg. Another says that the elephant is like a snake as he touches the trunk, whilst the last man says that the elephant is like a large fan as he explores the ear.
This is very much like how our governments, politicians, establishment and media treat Islam. Islam is the giant elephant in the room. They each declare what they think Islam is, based on what they are told by Muslim groups or by the far-left. They just cannot see what the elephant in the room really is. And this was never more evident in the coverage of the Sydney coffee shop siege. The BBC declared that they couldn’t see a relationship between the flag shown in the coffee shop window and the ISIS flag. Anyone with half a brain at the BBC who had bothered to do even a simple Google search would have discovered that the black flag is the Islamic flag of war – Jihad war.
