Islamophobia: Thought Crime of the Totalitarian Future

The movement seeking to turn “Islamophobia” into a thought crime and to silence all critics of radical Islam is gaining momentum. Just recently, Think Progress — an organization created by billionaire George Soros, puppet master of the left wing of the Democratic Party, and John Podesta, former chief of staff in the Clinton White House, put out a report written by Faiz Shakir and others called Fear Inc: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America. Because of his speeches to students warning against the pro-jihadis spreading their message of hate in our universities — in particular the Muslim Students Association — David Horowitz was one of the targets of this smear.  Another was Robert Spencer, author of several courageous books about radical Islam and director of the early warning website Ironically, Horowitz and Spencer are the authors of a new pamphlet, Islamophobia: Thought Crime of the Totalitarian Future, which unmasks the sinister agenda behind the anti-Islamophobia movement, which Frontpage takes pride in publishing today.

Horowitz and Spencer show why “Islamophobia” is the new, favorite attack term of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Hamas-spinoff CAIR and assorted Marxist groups, to silence critics of Islamic terror, misogyny, and religious bigotry. The Brotherhood and its front groups allege that it is the pathological hatred of Muslims — despite the fact that Horowitz, Spencer and the other targets of this smear have said in so many words and on many, many occasions that individual Muslims are not their targets. “Islamophobia” is clearly an effort to silence any criticism of Islam — for instance, of the oppression and mutilation of women and murder of homosexuals advocated by its most radical elements, or of the calls by imams to kill Jews and infidels — by making the critic guilty of a bigotry that should itself be feared.

“Islamophobia” is a term originally coined by the Muslim Brotherhood as part of a campaign to advance its totalitarian cause by stigmatizing and silencing those who oppose them. The celebrated novelist Salman Rushdie (himself subjected to a death sentence for, in effect, being an “Islamophobe”) and his fellow writers have it exactly right in their manifesto “Together Facing the New Totalitarianism,” when they say, “We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia’, a wretched concept that confuses criticism of Islam as a religion with stigmatization of those who believe in it.” Or as the satirist Andrew Klavan has defined it — “Islamophobia: the irrational fear of having your head chopped off.” There is indeed a threat from Muslim fanatics who are not few in number, and it is in the interest of those fanatics to label those who oppose them hostile to all Muslims and thus to deflect attention from their malign intentions. Several of the authors of the Think Progress attack on Spencer and Horowitz and their colleagues are supporters and apologists for Hamas, Hizbollah and other Muslim terrorist organizations.

In their new pamphlet, Islamophobia: Thought Crime of the Totalitarian Future, Horowitz and Spencer have created what amounts to a biography of this malign concept. Their work shows how the term “Islamophobia” originated with the Muslim Brotherhood, is connected to violent protests over cartoons about Mohammed, the growing number of blasphemy laws in Europe, resolutions against this “form of racism” in the UN, and prosecutions of notable opponents of Islamic terror such as Oriana Fallaci and Geert Wilders. They show, too, how what began as a political strategy by the Muslim Brotherhood has now spread to American higher education and has, like political correctness and other such mad experiments cultured in the campus laboratory, the potential to break out into the larger political culture.

“Islamophobia” is a hoax comparable to The Protocols of The Elders of Zion.  As Horowitz and Spencer show in this important work, it is an effort to protect Islamic terror by silencing its critics through a direct assault on the Bill of Rights.

    "Islamophobia"….just the term would undoubtedly have impressed Orwell. The way it's being implemented would have moved him to write.

  • jacob

    If I declare publicly I'm an ISLAMOPHOBE, will I be put in jail ???

    As KLEVAN said, is irrational my fear of having my head chopped off ??

    Or should I fear instead for OBAMA's Supreme Court to come out with such ruling ???

    I don't want SHAARIA applied anywhere, even among the MUSLIMS themselves and
    any judge acting like that one in New Jersey MUST be kicked out immediately ! !

      No, you should however get a brain implant.

  • StephenD

    I'd like to begin a term to counter Islamophobia. That is "Islamoloather. I'll wear it proudly.
    I do not fear Islam. As a system to live by, as an oppressor to its people, as an enemy of life…

    I LOATHE Islam.

    As a retired LEO, I just received my latest issue of SCLC's "Intelligence Report". This magazine is aimed at the law enforcement community and supposedly is to keep us informed of the dangers of the far right. The current issue supposedly is to inform us about the dangers of home grown Islamic terrorists. However, included is an article about how the "self-educated" Robert Spencer is lying about Islam not being a religion of peace. It also places the blame for the murder of 70+ people in Norway by a "Christian" disciple of Jihad Watch and Robert Spencer, at Mr. Spencer's feet. I have warned the law enforcement community about "The Intelligence Report" before and I do so again. It is full of errors and out right lies about the teachings of Islam and Robert Spencer and others like him. I don't know how many "self-educated" Islamic experts are on the staff of SCLC's "Intelligence Report" but after four years investigating Islam and its teachings, Mr.Spencer is much, much closer to the truth than the SCLC. Law enforcement professionals would do well to recognize the "Intelligence Report" for what it is, full of half-truths, factual errors and outright lies. File 13 it and study history. You'll find the danger of Islam calling from the past and present, loud and clear.

    In my dictionary an 'Islamophobe' is a non-Muslim who knows too much about Islam. But our enemies are flexible too, as more and more people are waking up to the threat, the OIC with a hundred million dollar war-chest against free speech is already working on taking the hype to another level: from now on they intend to call it 'anti-Muslim racism', because the race card worked so well in the case of the malevolent community organizer from gangland Chicago.

    Unfortunately for them, Islam is not a race, but a revolting ideology that has no place anywhere in the west.

    We have still many battles to fight, and 10 years after 9/11 we are still at the beginning.

    By twisting Robert Spencer's words slightly, I shall remind you:

    'we have no money, the media ignores us and the totalitarian establishment hates us, but we have the truth and for that we will win, because we must.

    The alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

  • Ameer Raschid

    Pathetic spin to counter the evil propaganda about Islam using "thought"crime instead of "hate" crime. Islam was attacked at its onset by pagan disbelievers and Jews and Christians about the truth of the Divine message and mission of the Prophet and answered in the Qur'an. Christians have attacked up until the present day and orientalists have examined it using original sources in an attempt to discredit its divine origin or to disprove the Prophet's credentials. What is different today is the organized Zionist campaign promoting Islam as a danger to the US and world civilization by it's stealth mission to take over those society and its institutions using Shari'at law and human rights making cocessions to Islamic observances such as time off for prayer, foot baths and wearing head coverings etc. A so called "significant" proportion of US Muslims are seen as being sympathetic to anti-American
    Groups or interests by a biased agenda motivated neocon-Zionist well funded pro-Israel propaganda machine. It is designe to demonize Islam so that Muslims will be marginalized and unable to counter AIPAC's control of Congress and media such as Murdock's NYPost,WSJ and Fox News. Campus Watch attempts thought contro over professors,universities and textbooks in public schools as well to prevent any sympathetic view os Islan as a religion or it's history. The life of Jews in Spain, Iran and Arab countries are being shown as oppressed in order to counter any sympathy among Jews for the oppression of Palestinians. Liberal Jews are condemned for thir support of Palestinian rights as self hating and leftist. Arrogance of Israel withUS backing in Security Council gallows "self defense" to be used as an excuse for excessive and collective punishments. Propaganda against the foreign policy of Turkey as Islamist to pressure it to accept Israeli Gabza blockade and treatment of Palestians as acceptable. A war against Islam has been started by Zionist Jews and no Capt.Israel will be there to defend Jews from a backlash and increase in antisemitism as well as antiAmericanism. Obama is demonized as soft on Islam and Arabs and too critical of Israel regarding settlements. in Time of Prophet Jews preferred paganism to belief in the One God of Islam. your hatred wil be the source of your self destruction.

      We can argue for days about everyone else…tell us about YOU. What do you believe G-D wants for you in relation to other humans, Humans he created just like you? What do you think is your place? To lift a helping hand? To feed or heal? To cry in rage over a political situation you have no influence over? To wage war? Do you think you are supposed to live as a subject or as a child loved by his maker? Should you love His other children as He loves you? Do you think that you should Love LIFE or cherish death? You waste your breath telling us how right you are. Nobody here believes in Islam. The question is…why do you?

    • Jeff

      Mohammed was not a Prophet (See Deuteronomy 18:21). He was a pedophile who married Aisha when she was seven and raped her when she was nine. He also raped the wives of living captured soldiers and beheaded 700 Jews personally in one day (Banu Kuraiza). Millions were slaughtered in the Muhammedan takeover of Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Iran. But God's Holy Spirit (Third person of the Trinity) and the internet are bring truth to you poor, benighted, vicious, ignorant bastards.. The Christian God is forgiving, so do not despair.

    • Choi

      Where do we begin?
      1)Your LYING Taqyia/Da'awah gives us a classroom example of the ultimate TURNSPEAK,accusing us of what you're GUILTY of..
      You are AT WAR with the Non-Islamic World and have been since YOU STARTED IT back in the 7th Century.
      2)You are NOT a religion in the same way that other religions are.
      In other religions,the MORE devout & religious,the MORE righteous and peaceful,but in YOUR religion(political & legal system as well)the MORE DEVOUT & RELIGIOUS, THE MORE DANGEROUS.
      3)When other religions pray,they pray for God's Blessings & Love.
      When YOU pray,it's for the SUBJUCATION of Infidels and Global Islamic Rule,ie. a CALIPHATE.
      4)You have the ONLY religion whose symbols are Swords & Daggers and YOU have the nerve to call anybody who chooses NOT TO SUBMIT "Islamophobes"
      5)You have the ONLY religion which MANDATES SLAUGHTERING JEWS and was PARTNERED with the NAZIS both during and AFTER WWII(escaped Nazi War Criminals and their STOLEN LOOT)

    • aspacia

      You arrogant a$$. Mad Mo plagarized the Torah and New Testament, and had revelations to suit his economic, sexual and violent needs.

      To most Christians and Jews their books are divine, and the true word of God, whereas the Qu'ran is a book inspired by Satan. What other religion has a profiteering, war mongering slaver as a prophet? None but Islam.

      Why no outcry against the violent Islamic conquests and domination? Hypocrite.

      You are simply a jealous Judeophobic liar. Israel belongs to the Jews because they legally purchased it, and also won it through conquest after numerous Arab attacks.

  • The 73rd Virgin

    What is wrong with calling names when they describe the situation? All those horny, sex starved, testosterone driven Muslim males can find fast relief for their urges if they just obey Pimp Daddy, Big Al and strap a bomb onto their lust filled bodies and blow up some nasty infidels, especially Jews and Christians.
    Its so lovely here in Hazrat's brothel this time of year with all those rosey butts humping those 72/ 73 NOW, since Big Al upped the ante with me. It looks like blisters on a bad sunburn all over these hills. What a nice god!

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    islam strives for world domination.

    The quran commands muslims to exercise jihad.

    The quern commands muslims to establish shariah law.

    The quern commands muslims to impose islam on the entire world.

    islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    islam IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is arabic for battle.

    islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

  • Jim_C

    When I think about Islam, I think about two films in particular: Frank Gaffney's film he did for PBS that was, shamefully, never aired; and Bill Maher's segment in "Religulous" on Islam.

    Both films are relatively even handed, in that they don't seem agenda-driven against Islam, in particular. Gaffney's film posits the existence of the moderate, modern Muslim; i.e., one who has an interest in an open society in which faith is a personal matter. Gaffney's take is that such Muslims are actively intimidated and silenced by their fundamentalist brethren. Maher, of course, sends up all religions, but saves Islam for his final, perhaps most chilling, segment.

    Both films talk with many of Islam's rigorous adherents (where allowed). I defy ANYONE to watch these people attempt to justify their faith and not be chilled to the bone.

    It's one thing to watch a Christian wacko talk about the end times, knowing we're fairly safe from such a person ever getting near the button. It's another to watch the neighborhood mullah fail to condemn violence against the infidel. And that's precisely what needs to be shown.

    • Chezwick_mac

      There's hope for you yet, Jim. If only you could reach your fellow liberals with such wisdom.

      • Chezwick_mac

        PS – Sometimes I think that's why you've made this bastion of conservatism your on-line hang-out…because deep down, you get it…you're just not ready kick over all those sacred cows you've been brought up to believe in.

        • Jim_C

          I do get it, and despite my default demeanor, I learn a lot from conservatives. In fact I'd say my core values are what are now called "conservative" (I'd say "classic liberal"–I cherish liberty). But pragmatically speaking I believe in the social contract, I think "big government" can be used to solve things nothing else can; I reject Reagan's mantra of "government is the problem." Government is only part of the problem.

          • Silverstein

            Exactly…I am classic liberal pacifist; and, liberty is essential to my philosophy…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness….liberty….. meaning to allow the minority point of view, no matter how much the majority (group) may disagree….and, too just live life, and enjoy life, pursuing a true liberal democratic way of life.

          • Chezwick_mac

            It's quite easy to be a pacifist when there are braver men than yourself who are willing to fight to defend your right to disagree.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      Gaffney's film posits the existence of the moderate, modern Muslim; i.e., one who has an interest in an open society in which faith is a personal matter.

      No doubt that was a concession to Gaffney's friendship with Zuhdi Jasser, who is a self-proclaimed professional moderate Muslim/Muslim reformer. However, besides being a publicity whore, Jasser is a shyster. Hopefully, Gaffney will eventually figure that out too.

      The truth is just like the notion that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists is a political correct myth, the notion that Muslims can be moderate and have an interest in an open society is also a political correct myth.

      In fact, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for every Muslim to fight jihad in the cause of Allah. It doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for extremists to fight jihad in the cause of Allah and it doesn't make it an obligatory duty only for radicals to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, while at the same time giving so-called moderate Muslims a free pass and exemption from fighting jihad in the cause of Allah. Instead, the sixth and most important pillar of Islam makes it an obligatory duty for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad in the cause of Allah, no exceptions.

      Hence, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS are jihadists, a few of them are violent jihadists, while most of them are non-violent jihadists, and the few that are not jihadists aren't Muslims at all but blasphemous apostates instead that per the texts and tenets of Islam must be executed.

      Therefore, just because a Muslim immigrant to America for all intents and purposes appears to be perfectly peaceful and law abiding, it doesn't mean that Muslim is a so-called moderate Muslim, especially when you consider the fact that Sharia law forbids Muslims from living in the Dar al Harb (the realm of unbelief) unless it is for jihad, as all Muslim immigrants in America are jihadists, a few of them are violent jihadists, while most of them are non-violent jihadists.

  • Flipside

    I don’t think Islamophobia is going to surpass Antisemitism as a thought crime.

  • MaoYing

    Islamophobia is a scam because there is no such thing as Islamophobia. That is, because the political movement known as Islam is such a dangerous threat to the health and welfare of people all over the world, we are dealing with SURVIVAL when it comes to Islam–the phobia thing is a total scam and it doesn't even enter into the equation. With all this in mind, it is easy to see that besides being a threat to our very SURVIVAL, muslims have also scammed a whole lot of people with their "Islamophobia Scam". Obviously, the muslims picked this up from the blacks' and mexicans' "Racism Scam" that has been and still is the biggest scam that has ever been perpetrated in the United States.

  • MaoYing

    Furthermore, as the muslims qualify as a non-white minority in the United States, they can play both scams–that is, the muslims can play both the "Islamophobia Scam" and the "Racism Scam" and get away with both of them as they are non-whites and have the help of the other minorities and the mentally-disordered liberals and the "government-media" complex to top it all off. As the muslims can play two scams instead of just one, you know, you just know the other minorities are jealous as all get out. You just know the other minorities are doing their best to get rid of the Islamophobia Scam. Will they be successful? Well, it all depends on how hard the other minorities try. It will be interesting. We will have to defer to the Las Vegas odds on this one.

  • Silverstein

    Excellent….we pacifist-liberals have been fighting this sort of stuff from day one.

    It seems new… to most…but it is actually old. As a liberal; I will give a few hints as too how to confront this because, the very hatred of Islamophobic politics…. could turn some into, anti-Islamophobics, themselves. and, we liberals have enough problems with fanatics like Limbaugh.

    Think… anti-poetry… it is a simple trick to throw a monkey wrench in it…I will not describe how, or what anti-poetry is….because it is a trade secret for us liberals. Defect, and I will teach how, and what it is, but, even Republicans can learn it, by creating their own form, which they would probably do anyway.

    Good luck, with the anti-Islamophobic nuts.

    • Choi

      Why do SELF-HATING JEWICIDAL LEFTIES such as yourself just Flaunt your Jewish surname ?
      Are you proud that your LEFT-WING Pals will pat you on the head for PUBLICLY being against not only your own flesh & blood but that you suck up so well to the Islamonazis?
      You realize that YOU,Silverstein ,will be among the first they go after IF ,God Forbid they defeat us.
      They will put Jewish Lefties at the head of the line when they go after ALL INFIDELS,because in the end,Silverstein,to the Muslims,YOU are still a Jew.

      • Silverstein

        No Muslims ever called me a Jew…and, I traveled too many countries, and the Muslims would always beg me to go the the Muslim areas, and they knew I had a Jewish last name, it is stamped on my passport..I have no dog in this fight, yet.

      • Silverstein

        Have you ever heard of the expression; that if you hate someone; and project that hate, that the other person is likely to hate you back?….in other words, perhaps the Muslims hate, because they are hated… why not just simply be friendly with them?… like I was with them when I traveled on their turf.

        If anyone regardless of religion, or creed, practiced this simple friendly manner with one another, their would be world peace in a New York minute.

        • Mamma Matrix

          What makes you think these people are interested in your advice on the friendly behavior? First of all, their reaction is a response to the provocative tagging by Soros. “Islamophobe” sounds as a pejorative label (as well as “xenophobe” and “homophobe”) which misses the point because it is unlikely that some kind of “phobia” is the main driver in question. Note that “communistophobes” are called anti-communists, and “semitephobes” are called anti-Semites. It is thus natural that anti-Muslims get even angrier when they hear this name game.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The movement seeking to turn “Islamophobia” into a thought crime and to silence all critics of radical Islam is gaining momentum.

    What exactly is radical Islam? Please define it. Is radical Islam somehow different from the version of Islam that is according to GWB, Obama, our federal government, and our news medias a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists? If it is, then please explain how and in what ways.

    Another was Robert Spencer, author of several courageous books about radical Islam and director of the early warning website 

    With all due respect, while I'm perfectly aware that Robert Spencer was the author of several books on the subject of Islam, I wasn't aware, however, that he authored several courageous books on radical Islam as opposed to mainstream orthodox Islam. Indeed, what were the book titles and again exactly how and in what ways is radical Islam different from the Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists?

  • Ernest

    Islamophobia is something that is imagined.

    9/11 was very real! They were caused by "good" Muslims that followed the teachings of Islam, from the Quran and following the "good" example of Muhammad. Islam was NOT hi-jacked by extremists because what the Muslims did on 9/11 is in line with the teaching of Islam. It is taught in Islam that if Muslims fight non-Muslims and die they would be rewarded with heaven and receives their 72 virgins to fulfill their sexual ecstasy for eternity.

    People are trying to whitewash Islam and say that Islam is a Religion of Peace when we know that Muslims are causing violence all over the world. We should not tolerate Muslim's intolerance. By doing so we are only encouraging them to make us submit to their every demand.

  • Ernest

    People who speak out about the true nature of Islam are not being Islamophobic. They are very brave for doing so because the Muslims of the Religion of Peace are known for their threats of violence and death against anyone who points out the inconvenient truth about Islam. These defender of freedom have realized that Islam and Muslims are trying to make everyone submit to them.

    We must understand the evil that is inherent in Islam. Not some whitewashed version that is missing critical facts, which are the hatred against non-Muslims. It is against everything that is good in the free world.

    Islam and Muslims must be stopped!

  • Guestoffrontpage

    Islamophobia is distraction from the issues.

    All humans have not agreed that Islam is perfect.

    Four-fifths of humanity believe Islam is flawed.

    Criticizing Islam is not a mental illness.

    Islam is man-made and therefore may be criticized by a healthy, rational person.

    Islam is imperfect and therefore should be criticized by a healthy, rational person.
