“Islamophobic rhetoric” causes Islamic savages to follow Muhammad and strike terror into the hearts of unbelievers:
A respected US expert (respected by whom?) on Islam says the narrative that a “problem within Islam” is to blame for the recent terror attacks only legitimises groups such as Islamic State and helps it recruit followers.
Professor John Esposito, the founding director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University in the United States, said Western governments were “yielding to a fear that is not proportionate to the actual threat itself”.
“When you get those narratives it legitimises the kind of violence that actually exists,” he told AAP.
“Maybe some of those who are the Islamophobic politicians etc, they may not engage in violence but the rhetoric they put out there creates a world in which you then have the kinds of attacks that they suggest.”
He earlier told a conference on Islam in Sydney that “one of the things that does wind up alienating some youth is the extent to which anti-Muslim and anti-Islamic diatribe … make people feel alienated and marginalised”.

Da’awa gigolo in the service of Soddy Barbaria:
Esposito writes for Muslim journals, he’s proud to be accepted as “a token non-Muslim,” flies first class to Dubai, Saudi and Qatar. He portrays himself as “open-minded” “libertarian” “a Christian” etc. But he says the Bible is full of shit and trawls the internet defending Muslims and the Koran from slander. A third-class whore.
