KNIGHTSVILLE, Ind. (WTHI) - Months ago, Rachel Jones was shocked to discover her 4-year-old's baby doll seemed to have a hidden message: Islam is the light.
Imagine her surprise when a game for her 8-year-old daughter's Nintendo DS had the same message.
Rachel said she bought the Nintendo game, Baby Pals, as a gift for her 8-year-old daughter after a good report card.
She had no idea the game also contained the hidden message "Islam is the light."

Paul is dead.
It clearly says the phrase.
And it sounds like the same recording of the phrase.
This is beyond strange.
This has entered the realm of incredibly creepy.
I thought it sounded pretty clear in the doll. The game sounds nearly identical.

Even more odd that it’s happened twice to the same woman.
Can you imagine someone putting out childrens toys that said
“Christ is the light of the world”?
The heathen media would be raging then wouldn’t they.
ISLAM IS THE LIE
Wonder what her fillings say when she gets near a radio tower?
That is strange.
How long before Obama subliminals are ubiquitous?
“ISLAM IS THE LIE “
Wow, you hit the nail right on the head!
“Islam is the light” ... and it’s the light at the end of the tunnel ... and it’s the light of an oncoming train.
That seems to be an immediate red flag, but what if she’s the only one paying attention? It’s the same voice, so perhaps her 4 YO is being used for the scam. OTOH, there was no mention of a lawsuit, which is the usual motivation for a hoax. Maybe she just needed her 15 minutes. Or Islam is after the children. Hmmm, toss up.
I remember years ago when Microsoft had Arabic letters/icons embedded into the system. Haven’t heard of that for a while. It made a big splash back then.
Huh huh huh huh you referenced wood.

Yes. I am very immature for my late 40’s.
Indeed. Either it is the same recording, or one seems to purposely imitate the other. What is strange is that the sound quality on the game, which came out later, is better. Therefore the game designers couldn’t just have innocently recorded the doll to get some generic baby sounds. Here is some info I dug up on the manufacturers (ok ok I just googled and checked wikipedia, don’t ruin my Fletch moment).
“Crave Entertainment is an American video game company. It was founded in 1997 by Nima Taghavi. Its headquarters is in Newport Beach, California. It is a division of Handleman Corporation, which acquired the company in 2005. It publishes games for Sega Dreamcast, Wii, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64 Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PSP and Xbox. It focuses on budget titles, and imported games such as Kaido Battle.” - Wikipedia
“Handleman moved into video games through its purchase of game and accessory distributor Crave Entertainment in late 2005. It also operates a national in-store merchandising business called REPS LLC. Handleman, which was founded in 1934 by Philip Handleman, announced in mid-2008 that it plans to liquidate.
SVP and CFO: Rozanne Kokko
President and CEO: Albert A. (Al) Koch
Chairman: James B. (Jim) Nicholson” - Yahoo! Finance
“SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT
THIS SECURITIES PURCHASE AGREEMENT (” Agreement” ) is made as of October 18, 2005 among HANDLEMAN COMPANY, a Michigan corporation (” Buyer” ), and THE SHAREHOLDERS, OPTIONHOLDERS AND WARRANTHOLDERS OF CRAVE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, INC., a California corporation (such California corporation being defined in this Agreement as the “ Company” ), WHOSE NAMES APPEAR ON THE SIGNATURE PAGES OF THIS AGREEMENT (individually, a “ Shareholder” , and collectively, the “ Shareholders” ). Nima Taghavi, Hossein Taghavi, Reza Taghavi, Michael Maas and the Reza Taghavi Living Trust are collectively referred to in this Agreement as the “ Major Shareholders.”” - techagreements.com
Seems to me Handleman is probably not the problem here, they just bought the interest in the company to get into video games, while I think Taghavi is still the controlling executive of Crave. He is Iranian, as evidenced by this snippet about Nima Taghavi, his relative I presume and fellow shareholder, from http://www.allbusiness.com/north-america/united-states-california-metro-areas/582004-1.html:
“Nima Taghavi has been in business for more than 20 years — and he’s not yet 30. A native of Iran, Taghavi’s American dream ignited his entrepreneurial spirit and he went into business almost as soon as he landed in the States.”
Possibly completely unrelated, but you never know: according to Opensecrets.org, a Fariba Taghavi disclosed $4,600 to Hillary Clinton in March 2007, which apparently was returned to her(?) 6 months later, and $500 to Barack Obama in March 2007, which was not returned. Farimah Taghavi donated $1000 to Hillary Clinton in May 2007, which was also returned to her(?) in September 2007. Both of these Taghavi’s are located in California. Fariba is listed as president of Mitchra Lights, and is a Political Science professor with California State University, Long Beach. Farimah is listed as Sales Director of Bluecut.
Fariba has published a journal article, the title of which I found at http://www.international.ucla.edu/cnes/jusur/ :
“The Contentious Twins: Religion and State in Medieval Persian Political Thought
Another article from this website, at: http://www.international.ucla.edu/article.asp?parentid=14949
states this interesting fact:
“the seminar entitled “Islam and the Middle East: A Journey from the Past to the Present” engaged 33 Orange County teachers in a six-day workshop. CNES’ affiliate Fariba Taghavi served as the lead scholar”
Her company, listed on OpenSecrets as MitchraLights is apparently a typo for MithraLights, a signage company in Anaheim. Mithra is of course the primary deity of Zoroastrianism, the ancient religion of Persia. Strange for an Islamic scholar to name her company after an idol, but whatever.
According to this site, http://www.lls.edu/media/publications/PublicRecordSummer2005.pdf, Farimah Taghavi donated to Loyola Law School for an “Iranian Scholarship”.
This site: http://www.montebubbles.net/green_fashion_news.htm details a Los Angeles “Green Gallery” for showcasing new “Eco Trends”. One of the products showcased is:
“Panbeh Yoga Bags
Panbeh, translating to cotton in Persian, is a line of eco-friendly yoga bags created from organic cotton canvas. Designer Farimah Taghavi seeks to promote the idea of living in a sustainable society.”
The website, panbeh.net, has a nice Islamic-looking logo on the top left corner.
The only likely info I can find about the “Bluecut” that Farimah said she was Sales Director of is from http://www.findownersearch.com/category/COMPUTER%2BSOFTWARE/
It lists a Bluecut System, with an owner named Saeed R. Azadipour, address P.O.Box 3458 Santa Monica CALIFORNIA 90408. They make: “Software modules, namely, computer software for financial management and credit card processing and financial collections and inventory control; Computer software for the purpose of printing custom merchandise catalogs and computer software for merchandise order taking”
Boy oh boy, this little childrens game is leading me down a veritable Iranian rabbit’s hole! If I wasn’t suspicious before, I sure as heck am now.
I just realized why the returned contributions from Hillary to the 2 Taghavi’s was bugging me. They were both returned on 9/14/2007. There is an article I found from a website I won’t cite here (they might HUFF and puff). It is dated 9/11/2007, and said that Hillary’s campaign anounced it would begin returning $850,000 to 260 donors bundled by the notorious Norman Hsu! 3 days later the Taghavi’s (from California, a known Hsu stomping ground), received back their donations.
Doing a little futher searching I found this site which lists the Hsu donors: http://www.pmilligan.net/Hsu_compensated_Clinton_refund_analysis.pdf
Go down to the full list of donors and you will find, surprise surprise:
TAGHAVI FARIBA Corona del Mar CA
TAGHAVI FARIMAH Los Angeles CA
So from researching this “innocent kid’s game” I find Iranians who might be tentatively linked to Hillary Clinton, Norman Hsu, and Red China. Also note that the $500 contribution these Hsu-linked donors made to Obama was NOT returned. Seems Obama decided to keep Hsu’s contributions, and some other articles I find state that links between Hsu and Obama may be investigated during Norman Hsu’s trial. We should hope so!
“Boy oh boy, this little childrens game is leading me down a veritable Iranian rabbits hole! If I wasnt suspicious before, I sure as heck am now.”
Somebody needs to check out every product Crave has produced for this kind of stuff.
I saw that Debbie Schlussel covered the earlier story about the doll, and I sent her a head’s up about what I found. I figure she can probably dig up a lot more than I can, and she could sure get the word out a lot further.
Kudos to you! That is some fascinating reading in your series of posts.
Hope D.S. is able to take it to the next level.
I’m wondering what the odds are that this woman would find this alleged message in two different toys. Has anybody else found this in either one? If not, then the odds are astronomical.
Considering that the first reports about the doll had nothing to do with this woman, and reports were coming in from ALL over the country about this doll I don’t think this is a hoax. Rather, I think she called the media immediately because of the fact that this is not ONE, but TWO popular childrens’ toys that feature the same voice, and the same phrase. It could be brushed off as an unfortunate “accident” with the first doll, IMHO. But seeing as this sounds like the EXACT same track playing — something is VERY fishy about that, IMHO.
Yes, the doll was featured in news reports across the country a few months ago, and had nothing to do with this woman.
Here’s just one YouTube video about the doll in question, made by a private person. There are hundreds of other videos on the site, some news stories, etc...
Granted, I don’t exactly hear the “Satan is the King” phrase myself, but the “Islam is the Light” portion is clear. And, yes, it sounds like the exact same recording, albeit the GameBoy has better sound quality. Same intonation, etc...
What I find interesting is that Nintendo immediately said - “We’re not responsible for the content”. It’s like saying they have no opinion that differs, just that they aren’t the ones to be complaining to.
I decided to take a peek at YouTube for any independent video of this game. None feature the game in the context of this news report, however, there is a video I just found of a kid playing who recorded giving the doll a bath...
At around 1:00 - 1:10 in the video you can hear the phrase “Islam is the light”. Mind you, there are more videos on YouTube, but this was just the FIRST ONE I clicked on. That tells me there is WAY more to this story.
Baby Pals for DS
(Again, the phrase can be heard around 1:00-1:10 in the video)
What I find interesting is that Nintendo immediately said - Were not responsible for the content. Its like saying they have no opinion that differs, just that they arent the ones to be complaining to.
Just got a large screen TV and really wanted to get a Nintendo Wii. Now, not so much.
A child commented on the video I just posted regarding the DS game that he/she got it “FROM SCHOOL”??? I don’t want to make the kid nervous by asking where he lives, etc... but I sure wish we could figure out what school district is giving out video games to their students (if that is what happened), especially games with subliminal religious messages! I did ask the person to respond with the name of their school district, but I won’t hold my breath. I don’t want the kid to get scared and think I’m some perv! LOL
You may wish to send Debbie a link to the video I put up in Post #28. It’s completely unrelated video to the news article, just some kid recording their playing on the game, but at 1:08 in the video you can clearly hear the phrase...
Also, some kid who commented said they just got this game “at school”??? I’d love to know more about that, but don’t want to write to the kid privately or anything like that to find out more...
It’s subversion via children’s indoctrination. It’s a common theme in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc.
It’s no accident.
Islam is a blight ...
