The Islamic terror attacks on France were not a “tragedy”, they are Islamic terror, an act of war, committed in the name of Islam, by Islamic savages who seek to emulate Muhammad, profit of Islam.
“Islamophobia”, that imaginary mental disorder that Muslim propagandists attribute to irritated infidels, is, and remains, “a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.”
“Islamophobia” is used by Mohammedan headbangers and leftist media morons as in-your-face jihadist propaganda that blames recalcitrant Christians & Jews, and yes, wait for it: “right-wing militias or white supremacist groups”. But it is even more sinister, because it relates directly to Quran sura 2, verse 217, which states “Unbelief is worse than slaughter”.
Islamo agitprops Dalia Mogahed and Georgetown prostitute John Esposito warn of “emotional eruptions” and claim “Muslims are not a malignant or benign tumor in the body of America. They are a vital organ.”
I beg to differ. Read it and weep
DALIA MOGAHED and JOHN L. ESPOSITO: Don’t use tragedy to score political points
While the world mourned the savage and senseless loss of innocent life, some capitalized on the attacks in Paris to score political points.
Within hours, Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., tweeted: “How’s that Syrian refugee resettlement look now? How about that mass migration into Europe? Terrorism is alive & well in the world. #No”
Such refrains are more than emotional eruptions. They are manifestations of a deeply rooted narrative that casts Muslims as a foreign “growth” in the body of the West. The resulting debate is then framed something like this: Is this tumor benign or is it carcinogenic?
When Donald Trump says he’ll consider closing mosques, he is operating from this framework. When Ben Carson declares a Muslim can’t be president, he is thinking in these terms. When Jeb Bush suggests a religious test for accepting refugees, and a growing number of governors say they will refuse to accept Syrians fleeing war in the wake of the Paris attacks, it is this blueprint they are projecting.
But Muslims are not a malignant or benign tumor in the body of America. They are a vital organ. America is a safer place, a richer place, a kinder place because Muslims call it home.
When white supremacists burned down black churches in the South, Muslims raised nearly $100,000 online, $5 to $100 dollars at a time, to rebuild them. When misguided policies shut down running water for thousands of Detroit residents who couldn’t pay their water bill, the Muslim community and Islamic Relief stepped in with enough money to turn the water back on. Muslims offer health care to the uninsured in free clinics across the country. And as the faith group most likely to start businesses, Muslims create thousands of American jobs.
Muslims have disproportionately contributed to American innovation, filing hundreds of patents every year. The two largest mosques in the country are in Dearborn, Mich., and in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Muslims have helped propel the automotive and the tech industry, respectively.
While the vast majority of domestic terrorists are members of right-wing militias or white supremacist groups, of course Muslim terrorists do exist. However, what many who believe in a Muslim threat don’t realize is that many foiled terrorist acts initiated by a Muslim are stopped by other Muslims. Last weekend, for instance, the security guard who stopped the bomber from detonating inside the Paris stadium, an act that could have killed the French president and hundreds, if not thousands of more civilians, was a Muslim named Zouheir.
What threatens America today is not Islam or Syrians fleeing the very terrorism Paris and Beirut recently experienced. The illness that plagues America is fear, and Americans are force-fed this toxin 24 hours a day.
Islamophobia is a threat to every American because bigotry is fueled by fear, and fear destroys freedom. We defend America, not only by challenging expressions of hate, but by demolishing the framework that underpins them.

But wait, there’s more:
The Grand Mufti of Australia finds it unfair that he should be repeatedly called upon to condemn the Islamic State. According to the following news video, he thinks it is more important to look at Islamophobia as one of the causes of ISIS.
Sherrod Brown belongs in the category of the “criminally insane”
Brown’s words recall a widely-heralded study that was published last summer, claiming that “right-wing extremism” was a bigger threat to the U.S. than jihad, based on the number of Americans killed by each since 9/11. Not only does this study skew the results by leaving out 9/11, but it also ignored the many, many foiled […]
