"Islamophobia?" Is the British Public Really That Dumb?

British Public Most Likely to Blame the Media for “Islamophobia”

Looks like the media has  been derelict in their duty to inform. As it stands, there have been  17.485   Islamic terrorists atrocities since 9/11, with hundreds of thousands of corpses lining the way. And these wankers are telling us that the media is to blame for that? In the last 24 months (2009 and 2010) 126 people were indicted on terrorist-related charges in the United States. All of them were Muslim.

“Islamophobia” and the media cause terrorism just  like  eating banana’s causes AIDS.

 If it is true that “two-thirds of the public do not believe the Quran justifies the use of violence against non-Muslims” there is a dangerous learning deficit. If Muslims would wean themselves and their kids of hatred of unbelievers, Judeophobia, Christianophobia, Hinduphobia and Buddhistophobia, we would slowly be getting somewhere. But this is not the case.

Instead, they are trying to sell us the “cure” for “Islamophobia” as “multiculturalism,” “open-mindedness,” and the like.

But of course none of that will cure this disease, which is non-existent in any case. If Muslims really wants to cure “Islamophobia,” here is an easy way. They can:

1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively not just “terrorism,” but any intention to replace the U.S. Constitution (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by stating unequivocally that American and Israeli civilians are innocent people.
3. Teach Muslims the imperative of coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis.
4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.
5. Actively work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

If Muslims do those five things, voila! People like me will no longer suffer from the illness of “Islamophobia”!

But of course they won’t do any of these things, and this five-point list, which I have posted here many times, is just an exercise in bluff-calling. If Muslims in the West are as “moderate” as they claim, they would have been long since doing all of these things. But they aren’t, and they’re not going to. One would think that fact would start to wake up government and law enforcement authorities. Of course, it hasn’t, and probably won’t.

British Public Most Likely to Blame the Media for “Islamophobia”

Andrew Hawkins, ComRes Chairman, said:

“Two-thirds of the public do not believe the Quran justifies the use of violence against non-Muslims, providing evidence of the public’s predominantly tolerant, liberal view of religious minorities.  British Muslims should also be encouraged that only one in ten of the British public believe they are to blame for Islamophobia.  Instead, more than four in ten British people say the media or the far-right are principally to blame for it.”

LONDON, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

A new ComRes survey on Islamophobia – the fear of the Muslim faith – reveals that people think that the media is most to blame for whipping up a climate of fear of Islam in the UK.

Absolute BS. Check our dictionary on “Islamophobia” at the bottom of this page!*

People are twice as likely to say the media is to blame for Islamophobia (29%) than far-right groups (13%), or indeed Muslims themselves either abroad (14%) or in the UK (11%).

Conservative Party Chairman, Sayeeda Warsi, recently said Islamophobia had ‘passed the dinner table test’, becoming a social norm.  Indeed, just 1% of people do not think that Islamophobia exists in the UK.

The poll was commissioned by one of the UK’s oldest Muslim groups, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, in order to inform its plans to counter the tide of prejudice against Islam and highlight strategies to promote better community relations.

The poll comes on the eve of Britain’s biggest annual Islamic convention which will see 30,000 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community gathering at a 220-acre site inHampshire. Foremost on the agenda will be ways to build bridges between communities and spread the word that Islam means peace.

Ahmadiyya Muslims recently launched a ‘Muslims for Loyalty, Freedom & Peace’ campaign with bus adverts, door-to-door pamphleting, fundraising for UK charities, blood donor sessions, inter-faith sessions, peace symposiums and more across the UK.

Now, at the annual convention between July 22-24, community members will reassert their ethos Love for All, Hatred for None, by pledging to counter hatemongers and extremism through a commitment to peace and amity.

Rafiq Hayat, National President Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, said:

“The results of the survey reveal that more needs to be done to refocus media attention on the valuable contributions Muslims make to Britain and rather than excessively focusing on the troublemakers who scream at us through media headlines but have nothing to do with Islam. Their nefarious activities do a disservice to this country and are an affront to our faith.

“The poll shows quite clearly that there needs to be greater positive engagement between the media and Muslims in order to address Islamophobia in the UK.”

Well, I guess we let Muslims control the media an voila, the ‘Islamophobia’ will go away. And the corpses pile up….

Following the furore over the Pastor Jones controversy in the US, the ComRes survey also investigated perceptions over the Islamic scripture, the Holy Quran. Just 14% of the British public agree that the Quran justifies the use of violence against others.

“It is heartening to learn that the vast majority of people realise that there is no religious justification for terror and violence and the Holy Quran does not sanction hatred or discrimination. It states clearly that there is no compulsion in matters of religion.”

The survey does throw up other interesting results:

  • Muslims abroad (14%) are deemed to be more responsible than far right political groups (13%) and UK Muslims (11%) for contributing to Islamophobia.
  • Younger people are more likely to think that the media is responsible for Islamophobia than older people – 40% of 18-24 years olds think this, compared to just 18% of people 65 and over.
  • People who say that they do not belong to any religion (33%) are more likely to say that the media is responsible for Islamophobia than people who say that they are Christian (27%).
  • Just 7% of people from social group C1 agree that the Quran justifies the use of violence against non-Muslims – this compares to 17% of people from group AB, 16% from group C2 and 15% from group DE.

Andrew Hawkins, ComRes Chairman, said:

“Two-thirds of the public do not believe the Quran justifies the use of violence against non-Muslims, providing evidence of the public’s predominantly tolerant, liberal view of religious minorities.  British Muslims should also be encouraged that only one in ten of the British public believe they are to blame for Islamophobia.  Instead, more than four in ten British people say the media or the far-right are principally to blame for it.”

* Our unabashed dictionary defines ‘Islamophobia’ as a non-Muslim who knows too much about Islam…..

There is irrational fear (e.g. of a harmless carpet snake, which has no venom, or of a daddy long legs spider); and there is rational fear, based on recognition of real danger, which should lead not to paralysis, but to the taking of rational precautions and, as necessary, defensive and even offensive action. Many is the poisonous snake that, during my childhood in the country, was summarily despatched with a hoe, after it had entered the house.

Fear of Islam; that is, fear of Muslims who have not openly and publicly renounced Islam in word and deed, is a rational fear.

  1. 140 years of softening up for the invasion by acquiescence

    http://www.bahai.org.uk/

    …all humanity is
    one family

    The Bahá’í teachings emphasize that all of us, as creations of one God, are part of one human family.

    Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í Faith said, “The tabernacle of unity hath been raised; regard ye not one another as strangers. Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.”

    People of nearly every background, in every nation, have become Bahá’ís.

    Bahá’í Beliefs…

    All humanity is one family

    Women and men are equal

    All prejudice – racial, religious, national or economic – is destructive and must be overcome

    Science and religion are in harmony

    Our economic problems are linked to spiritual problems

    The family and its unity are very important

    There is one God

    All major religions come from God

    World peace is the crying need of our time

    The independent investigation of truth

    ======

    I can’t just make this shit up you know..

  2. The question “Does the Koran justify the use of violence against Muslims?” is ambiguous, though, making the results of this survey worthless.

    It could be interpreted as either

    “Should Muslims be allowed to use violence against non-Muslims because of what it says in the Koran?”

    to which I would answer “No”.

    or

    “Does the Koran tell Muslims that they are allowed to use violence against non-Muslims?”

    to which I would answer “yes”.

    Most likely they deliberately picked a question with that kind of ambiguity so they could spin it any way they wanted.

  3. A sample of 1004 garnered as representative of the UK – I don’t think so!
    Simply more islamic victim playing.
