As I thought about this while getting a cup of coffee it struck me that more than simply a funny gif that appeals to my sense of humor, this really is a metaphor for Islam in the 20th and 21st centuries. Think of all the islamic countries, places and societies that have decided to hop off the train and refuse civilization. All of them deciding they're not going to stay in the 21st century and leaping off that rascally train to the future.
So yeah, the gif is an excellent metaphor.
