Ihsanoglu Tosh: It cannot be denied that Muslims’ contribution to civilisation has been great, essential, and irrefutable…

Still waiting for the first Muhammad bin Einstein, but I won’t hold my breath.

MUSLIMS with a real understanding of Islam believe that the word and the essence of Islam emanate and preach peace, compassion, tolerance of all religions and beliefs, and respect for humanity and human dignity.


These are fundamental principles of Islam since Prophet Muhammad first spread its message over 14 centuries ago.

Furthermore, throughout history Muslims promoted peaceful coexistence with their fellow human beings across the world regardless of differences in religion and culture.

It cannot be denied that Muslims’ contribution to civilisation has been great, essential, and irrefutable in all fields, and Muslims have always recognised other peoples’ religions and great contributions to humanity.

Unfortunately, due to the rise of Islamophobia, mainly in the West, Muslims nowadays are facing various types of racial and discriminatory acts particularly by extremists and racists who irrationally try to equate Islam with terrorism based on false premises and assumptions. (More false premises and assumptions, here)

May we suggest Spencer’s cure for Islamophobia in 5 easy steps:

 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”!

    One needs to be careful what we want.

    As the pressure on Muslims grows, and demands to protect us from the Jihad also grows, Muslims may decide to pretend to accept all Spencer’s demands.

    Let us consider the hypothetical situation that ALL Muslims at present living in the West (the imams may tell them to), accepted the call, under the threat of expulsion, to clean up their communities of extremism . They even went further and made changes in their teachings of the Koran and the jihad. Such an outcome would no doubt come as a relief to many on this site, the government, the MSM, and elsewhere. But I counter, that all such changes were being done merely to protect the ummah while it grows at ever-increasing pace in the West. Once a near majority is achieved, that future generation of Muslims will simply revoke any changes(Taqqiya is advocated for Muslims when under stress), and return to the traditions of the unchanging and unchangeable Koran i.e., the canonical texts of Islam that cannot be changed, but only protected when under duress. That future generation of Muslims in the UK or the West, will even praise this generation of Muslims for having done what was necessary to protect Islam.

  2. Don’t worry, DP111:

    The clerics keep telling us they can’t control their ‘youth’- all we have to do is behave normally and they go apeshit.

    And Siddi:

    you would write acidic stuff like that too if the Saudis gave you $100 million to ‘combat Islamophobia’- admit it! -:)

  3. Actually their contribution has been rather minimal – but why spoil a good story with the truth.

  4. Sheikh

    They do tend to go apeshit the moment they get a smell of fear from the enemy. That is why, long before they are assured of outright majority, they will try to seize power by force. That will be their undoing.

    Of course seizing power by force and bloodshed is also a prime requirement of Jihadi victory, as victory cannot be permanent and rightful unless it is sanctified in blood.

    However, it still pays to be careful that some really smart tactical leader of Islam, does not play us along till it is too late.

  5. He, like most muslims is a liar. Islam contributes nothing positive to civilization, only negative, such as deception, trickery, slavery, oppression, infiltration, and violence, lots & lots of violence and death.

    “…..a culture that creates nothing, invents nothing, produces nothing, and aspires to nothing except genocide.”
