“To Serve Man”

What gives the game away in the Ground Zero mosque issue is the use of the word “Cordoba,” which points to the Islamic conquest of Christian Spain—an almost total conquest that was unraveled beginning with the historical figure of “The Cid.”

I’m reminded of a classic Twilight Zone episode, “To Serve Man,” in which hapless earthlings welcome visitors from another planet, who they believe have arrived as benevolent aliens. After all, their book says, “To Serve Man.” At the conclusion of the episode it’s revealed that the text is a cookbook! (See the “meaning of the word Islam” matter in the post below.)
