Fitzgerald: Islamophobia” at the UN
“When the world is compelled to coin a new term to take account of increasingly widespread bigotry — that is a sad and troubling development,” Annan said. “Such is the case with ‘Islamophobia.’ The word seems to have emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Today, the weight of history and the fallout of recent developments have left many Muslims around the world feeling aggravated and misunderstood, concerned about the erosion of their rights and even fearing for their physical safety.”
— from a news item, quoting then Secretary-General of the U.N. Kofi Annan
The “world” was not “compelled to coin a new term” — it was Muslims who coined the word, and they did so deliberately. For that word so deliberately kept undefined is merely a weapon employed to deflect criticism, to label all those who may offer criticism of Islam and of its adherents, basing their criticism not on some blind prejudice, but on their own observations and study. Indeed, the entire Western world — its political leaders, its media, its university departments of Middle Eastern studies — have all been engaged in a massive effort to deflect criticism or disarm it.
It is despite all that that Infidels everywhere are coming to some conclusions about Islam, and the more they study, and the more they observe, and the more “Interfaith” gatherings and little Muslim Outreach evenings they attend, all of which end up being dismal exercises in Taqiyya and Tu-Quoque argumentation, the more wary, and critical, and indignant, and sometimes more, they become. The game is up.
From a Beslan school full of children to a Bali nightclub full of revellers, from Madrid subways to Moscow theatres, from New York skyscrapers to Najaf mosques (where Sadr’s bezonians tortured, killed, and stacked the bodies of Iraqis who had opposed their reign of terror), from Istanbul to India, the evidence just keeps piling up. And the evidence, too, of what is actually in the Qur’an and hadith and sira — and how many Infidels, a few years ago, even had heard of the “hadith” and the “sira,” or had any idea what was really in the Qur’an, or had ever heard of the Treaty of al-Hudaibiyya — is now online, and it can easily be read. And all the excuses, all the nonsense, can no longer be offered up — for we Infidels, fortunately, have the guidance of defectors from Islam, ex-Muslims such as Ibn Warraq (whose own three-part guide, posted at Jihad Watch, to debating Muslims, and how not to be intimidated or snookered, will for many prove invaluable).
Switzerland Means Business:
The Swiss conservative party SVP (no doubt vilified and smeared by the progressives as ‘right wing’ ) means business and wants to see foreign criminals removed, deported, kicked out.
In a world where making sense has become increasingly difficult, this seems to be a breath of fresh air.
Here’s the text translated:
In no other country in the world you find as many foreigners as in Switzerland. For the most part, they respect our laws. But too many foreigners abuse our hospitality and engage in serious crime, threaten our property, our wellbeing and our life.
This are the facts:
Here’s the Crime stats:
1. Crime in total 55. 8 %
2. Crime causing serious bodily harm/aggravated assault 52.7%
3. Killing with intend / premeditated murder 55.5 %
4. Blackmail intimidation 66.0 %
5. Rape 85.5 %
Rape- 85.5 %. Remember: ‘Infidel women are war-booty’
Resistance and courage in France
Mosques and other symbols of Islamic Imperialism
Mosques: Symbols of conquest and domination
Italy, the centre of world Catholicism, is resisting the rise of Islam – and in ways that aren’t always pretty:
Italy’s most senior Roman Catholic bishop has distanced himself from Catholics who oppose building a mosque in the northwestern city of Genoa, ordering them not to pray the rosary during a planned protest…
The demonstration against the mosque has been organised for yesterday night by the local branch of Forza Italia, the conservative party whose national leader is former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.
The protesters plan to pray the rosary, which consists of the “Our Father”, “Hail Mary” and “Glory Be” prayers, while they march from a city square to the site of the proposed mosque.
The city of St Peter doesn’t want to be the city of Mohammed as well:
Authorities in Rome have blocked work aimed at converting a building next to a Catholic church into a mosque.
