Mission Dawah is a Muslim advocacy group who states their mission is:
To fulfill the vision of the Prophet peace be upon him of Islam entering into every home.
They also suggest that September 11th is a good day to give dawah (prosletyzing). And a few of their followers suggest enjoying some cake:
Yup, that’s a cake that is exactly what it looks like. And it’s on Mission Dawah’s page, dedicated to spreading submission to Allah and Mohammed.
In the comments, there are at least a couple people who don’t approve (and credit’s due to them), but there are a couple who “like it” at worst and plenty more who simply accept it quietly, rather than take a moment to critcize it. You’d think if they were true believers in some kind of peace, they would find such a thing offensive because it insults both potential converts and their own religion as being a cult of violent sociopathic murderers who laugh at the deaths of thousands, but there are a lot who are silently accepting.
But there are several of the mission dawah followers who are too busy claiming the Jews did 9/11 and it’s all a conspiracy to blame peaceful muslims who would never harm anyone or do anything to offend anyone.
Apparently Mission Dawah is cool with it and supports their followers, because neither the cake nor “teh Jooos did 9/11” has gone away as of this posting.
Somehow I suspect their prosletyzing on the anniversary of a terrorist attack that killed thousands of people in the name of their god and led to a 12-year-long war wasn’t going to go over well to begin with. The best way to show you’re not really a violent sociopathic ideology of tyranny and oppression is probably not to joke about the deaths of thousands at the hands of your fellow Muslims by making a cake out of a murderous sneak attack.
But of course, Islam didn’t do it, the “Jooos who control the US government did it to frame muslims”.
Update: Dr. Rusty at Jawa Report notes once again that commenter posts and the page owner may share different views and some pages don’t have fully moderated comments to prevent such posts. But they usually don’t have a string of followers supporting it, and it’s still up on their page. To both the credit and detriment of commenters, there are a handful against, and several for.
A search on Tineye with just the cake yields results from 2010, so the picture is older, but it’s being circulated in this context. But it’s not whether it’s some leftist bakeoff in SanFran being reused to spread ill will… it’s that it’s just being used to spread ill will, and the obvious sentiment that goes with it.
