The Frog and the Scorpion

A frog was hopping along in the forest, heading home to her family, when all of a sudden she came upon a small river. Now, the frog, being a great swimmer as frogs are, was about to leap into the river in order to cross it – when she heard a voice:”Is there any chance, kind lady, that you can help me across this river? For I cannot swim.

The frog turned toward the direction of the voice, and was startled to see a scorpion moving toward her on the river bank. Now, everyone knows the history of scorpions – they sting and have a deadly poison. So the frog was understandably a bit frightened, and trembled as she asked the scorpion:

If I help you across the river, will you promise not to sting me? You see, I am on the way home to my family and they would miss me terribly.

The scorpion answered:

Kind lady, I understand your concern, but I too am on the way home to my family, and if I sting you, we would both drown, and who wants that? Besides, contrary to what you may have heard, I only sting for self defense – like if a fox should try to eat me. Please do me this great favor – I would be so grateful!

The frog considered the scorpion’s words, which didn’t seem like the words of a killer. She thought to herself: “I mean no harm to the scorpion, why should he sting me? If he stings me, we will both drown, and he must value life as much as I. If I help him, he will be my friend – because he knows that I am a nice frog. As my friend, the scorpion would surely tell all the other scorpions that I am a friend, and that they too should never sting me! And they wouldn’t sting my frog family or my frog friends either! And we frogs would be more than happy to help all scorpions cross the rivers! And maybe all the scorpions would help protect all the frogs and other small creatures from the truly dangerous creatures of the forest!

By this time, the frog was so excited about helping the scorpion that she didn’t want to even start thinking of reasons not to help. Besides the danger was too scary to think about – compared to the wonderful future that awaits the frogs and other small creatures of the forest with this new era of cooperation. “It will truly be a paradise.“, she thought. So the frog crouched down and let the scorpion jump onto her back. She then hopped into the river with the scorpion on her back and began swimming – and she swam beautifully, as frogs do. But when they got to the middle of the river she felt something painful in her side.

Ouch!” said the frog, “What was that???

I just stung you.“, said the scorpion.

The frog began to feel the poison take effect. It became harder for her to move, harder to swim. She thought about the paradise of universalistic brotherhood that could have been, and she cried out to the scorpion:

Why did you do that?! Now we will both drown – we could have been friends! Perhaps you can save yourself; swim to the other side!

But it was too late, and scorpions can’t swim. As they began to sink, the scorpion answered:

I am not like you; we don’t care about dying or making friends. We lie and sting. It is our nature, didn’t you know that?

The frog and the scorpion sank fast to the bottom of the river, and the frog thought about the scorpion’s question.

Yes.“, thought the frog, still puzzled that frogs and scorpions should think and act differently, after all, they are both small creatures of the forest. “Maybe I said or did something to anger him…?!“, thought the frog.

In case you don’t “get it” here are the parallels of this parable to Islam and the rest of us:
Scorpions can’t swim – it needs to rely on other creatures;  Islam has not succeeded and cannont succeed without using others.
The scorpion sought a decptive alliance with the frog; Islam seeks deceptive alliances with the “infidel.”
The scorpion cannot help but lie; Islam teaches “taqiyya” – lieing to defend or promote Islam.
The scorpion doesn’t care about death; Islam teaches that death is better than life – it is the nature of it.
The frog is puzzled because he assumed that both he and the scorpion were alike – both “small creatures”; Those of non-Islamic “faith” are puzzled because they assume they are just like Muslims because Islam is a religion just like theirs.
The Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Erdogan is quoted as proclaiming:  “There is no moderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s that.  Democracy is like a bus – you ride it until you arrive at your destination, then you step off.  Assimilation [of Muslims into Germany] is a crime against humanity…”
