WSJ: the term “Islamophobia” treats political ideology as akin to race

A Nasty Neologism

Non-muslims around the world  reject honour killings, child-marriage, extortion, stoning of women, jihad, terror and genocide, all of which are as Islamic as the profit Muhammad himself.  You gotta be a Muslim or a progressive loon to insist that all these people, billions of them, are in need of psychiatric treatment, or need to undergo “sensitivity training” in some reeducation camp to cure their “irrational fear of Islam”, that imaginary “phobia”.

However, conflating criticism of Islam with racism has wrecked every civil discourse about an ideology in the guise of religion that needs to be debated openly without fear or favours. Nowhere is this more apparent today than in once great Britain, where the institutions  are paralysed in fear of being called “racist”.

JONATHAN SCHANZER from the Wall Street Journal exposes Nathan Lean, the editor-in-chief of Aslan Media, Reza Aslan’s gunsel.

Lean is a thug who has sent Robert Spencer numerous veiled threats.

Lean is   “deeply entrenched” in the business of selling fear Islamic bullcrap. Here he explains that he wasn’t calling for censorship, he was only calling for those who call for resistance to the jihad and Islamic supremacism to be “publicly shamed.”

Good that the WSJ finally got his number.

Money no object:

Omar Khadr is returning to Canada. He is an enemy of the state, a Muslim soldier in the global jihad. He should have rotted in GITMO, if not faced a firing squad. No, instead Obama cut his sentence down from 40 years to 8 years, and then asked the Canadian government to take Khadr.

Khadr killed an American soldier — and Obama freed him. (Pamela Geller)

“He is a murderer. He is a terrorist, but he is also a Canadian. There is no getting around that fact.”

Canada’s leftards are infatuated with their very own spitting image of David Hicks: Public Safety minister Vic Toews is reassuring Canadians that if convicted war criminal Omar Khadr returns to serve the rest of his sentence in Canada, he won’t pose a security risk.

OIC launching BLITZKRIEG  to fight “Islamophobia”

The OIC Secretary General, Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu,  highlighted Islamophobia as one of the most pressing issues that needs to be tackled by the OIC. He said that Islamophobia is fuelled by a misconceptions about Islam and Muslims and incites hatred and discrimination against them on religious and ethnic grounds.

The largest platform representing Muslim countries has agreed to launch an aggressive media campaign with the purpose of raising awareness of anti-Muslim hate movements in the world, while keeping tabs on the problems that are being faced by Muslim citizens in Western and Asian countries.

 Bought a wife or a maidservant lately?

when you marry a woman or buy a maidservant, you should say:


Allahumma innee as-aluka khayraha wakhayra ma jabaltaha AAalayh, wa-aAAoothu bika min sharriha washarri ma jabaltaha AAalayh.

‘O Allah, I ask You for the goodness within her and the goodness that you have made her inclined towards, and I take refuge with You from the evil within her and the evil that you have made her inclined towards.’


…and if you buy a camel, then you should take hold of it’s hump and say likewise.’

“Islamophobia” is a concept that was invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in order to intimidate non-Muslims away from criticizing or resisting the jihad and Islamic supremacism. The OIC has millions and will use them to bury us in hot steaming piles of nonsense about how Islam teaches peace and tolerance and “believe us, not your lying eyes.”

'Resisting Islam causes wars for which the infidels are responsible'

That, and nothing else, is what sly Islamo-supremacist Aiman Mazyek is telling Germans who want Muslims to distance themselves from the jihadists.*

German Interior Minister says Muslims must fight “radicalization”; Muslim leaders blame “Islamophobia”

Reality vs ‘stereotyping’

German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich says Muslims must fight against “radicalization” in their own communities. In response, Muslim leaders in Germany pledged full, open, and honest cooperation with law enforcement — naaah, just kidding! In reality, they whined about “Islamophobia,” complained that the whole community was being victimized by the fight against jihadists, and demanded that the government work to make Muslims “feel at home” in Germany. Do they need to do anything to demonstrate their loyalty to the state and rejection of all areas of Sharia that contradict German law? Why, of course they don’t, you greasy Islamophobe.

“German interior minister urges Muslims to combat militancy,” from Deutsche Welle, June 25:

Germany’s interior minister met with Muslim community leaders to discuss how they can prevent youth radicalization. Muslim leaders countered that the responsibility lies with the government.German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich urged the country’s Muslim community on Friday to do more to prevent the spread of radicalization among its youth. He told Muslim leaders at a meeting in Berlin that families must act early to prevent young boys from turning into jihadists.

Islamophobia in New York City: Muslim cabbie runs over two of his passengers

There have been several other suspicious incidents involving Muslim drivers over the last few years. Hassan Daly, a 52-year-old described as a “devout Muslim,” plowed his cab into a crowd on a sidewalk in San Diego, injuring over 24 people. Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar explicitly grounded his hit-and-run in the teachings of the Koran. Munir Muthana told the police who arrested him that “the Muslims will fix this country.”Omeed Aziz Popal, we were told, was suffering from stress from an arranged marriage. Ismail Yassin Mohamed, we were informed, was mentally ill, suffered from depression, and hadn’t being taking his medication. And Muhammad Teshale, according to “law enforcement officials,” “did it to be famous.”

Coincidence or jihad? Certainly there are a lot of hit-and-run and incidents involving people hit by cars that have nothing to do with Muslims, but in the cases listed here there is a degree of intentionality in these that we do not usually see.

How the term “Islamophobia” got shoved down your throat

An Islamophobe is a non-Muslim who knows too much about Islam

I’ve maintained for years that the term “Islamophobia” was a politically manipulative coinage designed to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. Now Claire Berlinski explains how Islamic supremacists devised it for precisely that purpose. “Moderate Muslim Watch: How the Term ‘Islamophobia’ Got Shoved Down Your Throat,” by Claire Berlinski at Ricochet.com, November 24 (thanks to Creeping Sharia via JW):

A unicorn from the Tundra Tabloids

Now here’s a point you might deeply consider: The neologism “Islamophobia” did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia. If that name dimly rings a bell, it should: I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s particularly important because it was co-founded by Anwar Ibrahim–the hero of Moderate Islam who is now trotting around the globe comparing his plight to that of Aung San Suu Kyi.Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. “This loathsome term,” he writes,

is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.

Sometimes it’s just a case of poor timing.

“White House: could be more mail bombs,” from AP, October 31:

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Hussein Obama’s counterterrorism adviser (Rashad Hussein*) said Sunday that authorities “have to presume” there might be more potential mail bombs like the ones pulled from planes in England and the United Arab Emirates….

Muslim Brotherhood in the White House: Hafiz Rashad Hussein

Speaking to about 400 people in Livonia, President Barack Obama’s envoy to the Muslim world said there is a “disturbing rise in anti-Islamic sentiment” that may be caused in part by the poor economy.”The things you can say about Islam you can’t say about any other faith,” Rashad Hussain, Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, said Saturday night at the annual fund-raising dinner of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim-founded think tank based in Clinton Township. “During tough economic times, groups that are seen to be the other … the scapegoating can increase.”…

At Last: A New Government in the Netherlands

Notice that the PVV — which in an American context would be slightly to the left of, say, John Kerry on everything but immigration and Islam — is labeled “far-right”. Anybody who opposes Islamization, no matter how socialist he might be on other issues, is always called a “right-wing extremist”. If he happens also to use a phrase like “Dutch identity”, “Flemish rights”, “Swedish values”, or “the ancient liberties of Englishmen”, he is automatically promoted to the rank of “neo-fascist” or “crypto-Nazi”.  (Read more »/Gates of Vienna)

Geert Wilders and the Koran on Trial

Howard junks multiculturalism. But belatedly

Former Prime Minister John Howard says clearly what he could only edge towards in office:

when a nation draws people from other parts of the world, it draws them because of the magnetism of its own culture, and its own way of life.

The ideal in my opinion is to draw people from the four corners of the earth and unite them behind the common values of the country which has made them welcome, and I think some of the difficulties that the United Kingdom is experiencing, and some of the difficulties that other countries have experienced has been to confuse those two concepts.

U.S. funds restoration of global Islamic sites

$6 million earmarked for 55 countries part of effort to reach out to the Muslim world

AP

The good-will tour of the Middle East by the imam behind the proposed mosque near ground zero is just part of the U.S. government’s efforts to reach out to the Muslim world.

This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations.

Under a program established by Congress in 2001, the State Department will fund at least five projects in as many countries to the tune of $271,000.  Those include the 16th century Grand Mosque in Tongxin, China, and the 18th century Golden Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan.

Islamophobia? Not really

Jonah Goldberg

Here’s a thought: The 70% of Americans who oppose what amounts to an Islamic Niketown two blocks from ground zero are the real victims of a climate of hate, and anti-Muslim backlash is mostly a myth.

Let’s start with some data.

According to the FBI, hate crimes against Muslims increased by a staggering 1,600% in 2001. That sounds serious! But wait, the increase is a math mirage. There were 28 anti-Islamic incidents in 2000. That number climbed to 481 the year a bunch of Muslim terrorists murdered 3,000 Americans in the name of Islam on Sept. 11.

Now, that was a hate crime.

Dr Spencer's Cure for "Islamophobia"

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.

A cure for what ails you

If Muslims really wants to cure “Islamophobia,” here is an easy way.

“Islamophobia”, Europe’s Biggest Problem!

Europe’s largest intergovernmental human rights watchdog has warned that intolerance toward Islam and Muslims in Europe has been increasing in recent years and urged immediate action to stem violence against Muslims. (Bunglawussi)

(Not that there ever was “violence against Muslims”. Neither was there a ‘backlash’ after jihadists blew up the trains in Madrid, killing 300. Or when they bombed subways and buses in Londonistan, killing 57 on 7/7.  Nobody spins it better than the Muzz…!)

What equality do you get when one man legislates over another? Is he not more superior than you? You are worshipping him by submitting to and obeying his laws… We will get oppression like this until we all submit to one law, and that is the law of God Allah…”

OK State Rep And Fox News Host Agree: ‘Dangerous Fools’ Want To Impose Sharia Law In U.S. Courts

TPM

Oklahoma State Rep. Rex Duncan (R) is worried that “dangerous fools in black robes” are going to impose sharia law on the U.S. court system.

Sharia law is sometimes used to justify cruel punishments like amputations, like stoning, as well as unequal treatment of women. And did you know it’s on its way to American courts?

Razi Hashmi, the executive director of CAIR-Oklahoma, has said the measure is “promoting division and bigotry instead of promoting unity and understanding of other faiths and cultures,” according to the Edmond Sun.

(Islam promotes  division and bigotry. We don’t need “More understanding of other faiths and cultures”, what we need is stiff resistance to Mohammedan advances)
