Six Sure Signs Someone You Know Is an Islamophobe

Eric Allen Bell is a filmmaker, columnist and counter-jihad activist.  He was banned from the liberal-progressive Daily Kos for writing 3 articles about Islam which ran afoul of the politically-correct mindset there.  He is director of both Global Infidel TV and Mosque Confidential and is currently in production on a documentary feature titled “American Infidel.”  You can read more about Bell’s conversion story in “The High Price of Telling the Truth about Islam.”  Visit him on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/EricAllenBell or go to www.EricAllenBell.com.

The word “Islamophobia” was popularized by Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization, operating under several different names in America – most effectively as the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  Hamas is part of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of, not only Hamas, but Al Qaeda and countless other Islamic terrorist groups.

The Holy Land Foundation trial was the result of the largest bust in FBI history of an Islamic “charity.” This organization was caught funneling about $12 million to Hamas.  These monies were to be used to enable Islamic jihadists to murder innocent civilians in the name of Islam.

During this FBI raid, a memo was unearthed.  This memo has become known as the “Explanatory Memorandum.” In summary, the Muslim Brotherhood and a couple dozen of its front groups in America declared a “Civilization Jihad.”  In plain terms, the Muslim Brotherhood stated its intention to destroy the US from within, using our own culture, media, legal system, academia, law enforcement, you name it.  Unfortunately, most people cannot or will not look at this – and consequently, the plan is moving forward like clockwork.  As author Dr. Bill Warner reminded me recently, “You can wake a man who is sleeping, but you cannot wake a man who is pretending to be asleep.

Now, as it turns out, not everyone believes in this concept called “Islamophobia.” In fact, there exists a rapidly growing number of Patriotic Americans who see this form of terrorist spin control for what it is. But unfortunately, one of the ways that the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas/CAIR has infiltrated our culture, is by using one of our greatest weaknesses, and that is the fear of not toeing the line when it comes to multiculturalism.  Those who do not drink the Kool Aid are called the “Islamophobes.”

You may already have an “Islamophobe” living in your community, or as a member of your family, an elected official, a member of your religious organization or even someone at work.  The “Islamophobes” are everywhere, and they are spreading.  Here are six ways to spot one:

1 – An “Islamophobe” loves liberty more than they love submission.  They know that the word “liberty” means “freedom” and that the word “Islam” literally means “submission.” And just like America’s Founding Fathers, the “Islamophobe” knows the value of liberty and knows it comes with a cost – a cost they are willing to pay, even when those around them neither understand nor appreciate this.

2 – An “Islamophobe” is more interested in the truth than the approval of their peers. They place their own moral intuition and the principles of the American Constitution above the group think of the times.  The “Islamophobe” is strong-willed, independent and exemplifies the American spirit.  They are unwilling to compromise the political self-determination that this great Republic was founded on, including and especially free speech.

3 – An “Islamophobe” resists passionately any attempt to impose Islamic law (Sharia) onto them.  Islamic law mandates the killing of those who leave Islam, the death penalty for homosexuals, second-class status for women, punishment for the crime of being raped (Islamic law calls this “adultery”), it forbids the questioning of Islamic doctrine, promotes slavery, forbids religious freedom and criminalizes free speech.  Although the “Islamophobes” are often smeared in the press as being irrational, the truth is that most actually realize that the more obvious forms of Sharia Law are not their most immediate concern.  Rather, it is understood among “Islamophobes” that it is “Creeping Sharia” or death by a thousand cuts that Americans have to watch out for and stand against.  The “Islamophobe” is always the first to notice when the political doctrine known as “Islam” is being given special treatment in schools, the courts and in the media.  The “Islamophobe” is often the first to realize that their own God-given right to free speech is being threatened by the slow and stealth implementation of Sharia Law into all levels of our society.

4 – An “Islamophobe” sees a pattern emerging before the rest of the population sees it, and they don’t hesitate to warn others, even when the social, professional and personal safety consequences come with a hefty price.  As David Horowitz pointed out recently, “80 percent of the American public was opposed to getting involved in WWII before we were attacked at Pearl Harbor.”  What was it that the other 20 percent were able to see?  What was the pattern they were able to identify?  An “Islamophobe” sees the writing on the walls and does not sit around passively waiting for our so-called “leaders” to get it.  An “Islamophobe” is very likely already a member of organizations such as “Act for America” because they are already taking action at the grassroots level.

5 – An “Islamophobe” is able to tell the difference between Islam, the totalitarian political ideology, and Muslims – who are human beings.  “Islamophobes” are not concerned with how Muslims worship.  Rather, it is Islamic Law that concerns them, specifically as it pertains to the treatment of the infidel, who is to be subjugated or killed.  Contrary to popular opinion, “Islamophobes” do not hate Muslims.  In fact the “Islamophobes” know better than most, that no one is more victimized by the brutality of Islam than Muslims.  “Islamophobes” look for ways to stop this pattern, so that all people can be free, have dignity and human rights.  An “Islamophobe” is often somebody with a big heart, such that they tend to care about people whom they don’t even personally know. The “Islamophobes,” however, do oppose a violent ideology which seeks to subjugate or kill the unbeliever, and they make no apologies for not tolerating such inhumanity.  Ironically, “Islamophobes” are often branded as bigots for simply being the ones willing to acknowledge the elephant in the room.  And making sure they are branded as such is the job of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Hamas front group.

6 – “Islamophobes” tend to define themselves by what they are for – and not by what they are against.  An “Islamophobe” stands for liberty, stands for human rights and cares about our national defense.  They are less concerned about complaining about the problems and are more likely to actually do something about it.  “Islamophobes” are people of action.  “Islamophobes” take the time to read the Islamic scriptures (Koran, Hadith and Sira) and to understand what we are up against.  They study the works of Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Wafa Sultan, Sam Harris, Nonie Darwish, Bill Warner, Brigitte Gabriel and so many others.  An “Islamophobe” takes the time to understand the ruthless and barbaric Islamic Law (Sharia), which is committed to taking away our fundamental rights.  Consequently, many “Islamophobes” have the tools to speak to others, including their elected officials, spiritual leaders, friends and family and even the media, to affect positive social change – and preserve our American way of life.

Do you know someone who might exhibit these traits?  Is someone you know an “Islamophobe”?  Well now there is something you can do about it.  Join them!

If you love liberty more than the approval of your peers – you may already be an “Islamophobe.”

The word “Islamophobia” literally means an irrational fear of the ideology known as Islam.  It is misapplied, as this is in fact the intention of the word. Someone with an irrational fear of Islam would more likely make a statement such as, “The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam.”  And really, what kind of a spineless coward would say something so utterly ridiculous? (Barack Hussein Obama, addressing the United Nations, October 2012.)

Those who are called the “Islamophobes” are generally anything but. However, they are strong enough not to allow cheap name calling to stop them from honoring their moral convictions.  The “Islamophobes” are our best and our brightest.  These are the people who can see around corners, connect the dots, spot a pattern, and are true to their moral intuition – even when it is inconvenient.

The so-called “Islamophobes” have the courage to speak out.  It has been said that “liberty is paid for in installments, one generation at a time.”  If you feel in your heart that you are ready to make your payment, to continue the legacy of freedom and liberty that has been paid for dearly by those brave men and women who have gone before us, then now is your time.  Now is our time.  Be willing to be branded an “Islamophobe.”  And if you are already a semi-active “Islamophobe” may I suggest becoming a “Raging Islamophobe.”  A word of caution: This could result in some people not liking you.  But if that is all that is being asked of us, for now, to stand up for liberty, to champion the cause of freedom — then being labeled an “Islamophobe” is a small price to pay.  In fact, to be an “Islamophobe” is an honor.

    If only you can see the smile on my face as I read this article. Indeed, history does not belong to the cowards; so stand up and be counted as an Islamophobe. You have nothing to lose but cowardice itself.

    • Ming Bucibei

      islamophobia = fear of islam

      islamo-contemno = islam ha te, contempt, loathing

      no fear of islam here, just contempt = islamocontemno

  • kafir4life

    islamophobia, like allah the moon-god, are both made up. allah the moon-god was made up by the first muslim, mohamat, the edophilic dog faced pig. This is a fact. islamophobia was made up by the muslim brotherhood, the terrorist organization that recently won elections in egypt, and supported by the US President Stinky (BO).

  • Mike

    I guess I'm an Islamophobe because I'm been telling people since 9-11-01 about islam and the muslims who believe in their false religion. Muslims are here in the U.S. to eventually take our country and make it islamic. They have done that to every place where they have landed. We are in a spritual war with islam and the only defence we have is Jesus Christ. I'm not a minister but the bible clearly talks about wars and rumors of wars. Well guess what? You have to have someone to have a war with and that culprit is islam, think about it! We are living in the latter days! God bless! Support Israel!

    • NorthwoodsCynic

      Hello Mike. Thanks for the good post, but "the only defense we have is Jesus Christ"? Where did that load of irrationality come from? We agnostics, atheists, secular humanists, etc., have no need for JC or Mohammed. Or any other form of superstition.

      • Stern

        Neither do we Jews.

      • Mike

        North—sorry you feel that way about JC and believe me it's not superstition but glad to hear that we're on the same page concerning islamophibia. Have a blessed day and may JC bless you and you family. Than ks!

        • Adrian Rainbow

          Your superstitions are next, once Islam is down we come for you!

  • cruiser navy 67

    I am an Islamophobic and dam proud of it.

  • MikeWood

    A good way of looking at it. Thank you.

    • KarshiKhanabad

      Not only am I an "Islamophobe" (CAIR's masterword intended to silence criticism of Islam), I am Islamowary, Islamorealistic, and Islamoresistant.

      Watcha thinka 'bout that, Nakba1948? Eh, Nakkie?

  • DogWithoutSlippers

    Yes, I am an Islamophobe! 1400 years of terror, murder, mutilations, beheadings, rapes, slavery, ignorance perpetrated by the evil machinations of a perverted mad man.

    • Ricardo Acuna

      It's not really that different than the thousands of years of slavery, genocide, beheadings and rape done by the Roman Empire or by the Crusaders or by the Inquisition.

      • DogWithoutSlippers

        No, Richard those mostly happened by conquest (ROMANS), and the Crusades were initiated to claim safe passage for Christians going to the Holy Land, The muslims were conversion by the sword, or seond rate citizenship, or death/slavery. Besides, we are talking now – what happens in our world – not in the past. We must take measures to stem the tide of barbarianism.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Yes it is different ignoramus. What the islamofascists did in the Indian sub-continent makes the Spanish Inquisition look like a picnic. Your argument is one of false equivalence, particularly in the here and now, GFY.

      • Atikva

        There is not one ounce of truth in your statement. This type of historical distortions concocted by the islamo-socialism propaganda office can only fool the uneducated. The others just dismiss them as ridiculous.

  • HermitLion

    I'd rather be an Islamophone than a Jewaphobe, truthaphobe, thinkaphobe, individualphobe, and civilizationphobe, like the guys on the other side of the fence.

  • theleastthreat

    To avoid the Islamophobe label, ignore the obvious. Downplay the wretched behavior of brutal thugs. Make excuses for this behavior by pointing out what the medeval church was doing 500 years ago. Condemn films and literature about Islam which you may never have seen or read. (I, personally, never saw "Innocence of Muslims" and don't know if it is slander or accurate). Assume that critics of Islam are describing all Muslims. Bring up the rantings and ravings of kooks who hate all Muslims and link these kooks to any valid criticism of Islam. Basically, become a fool.

    • kufar dawg

      Why shouldn't I hate all muslimes? They are the ones who subscribe to the tenets of a death cult that calls for me to be murdered for criticising it. They are the ones who subscribe to a death cult that calls for the worldwide extermination of Jews. I hate all muslimes just as I hate all nazis and I'm not going to apologize to you or the islamofascists for the hate they've earned.

      • theleastthreat

        People are, for the most par, ,just trying to get through this life with as little heartache as possible. I've met decent people from all over. One Muslim man in the UAE wished me a Merry Christmas which followed some action I took on his behalf. So, there are good people over there too. You can ignore that but what do you gain from ignoring it? Also, I think you missed the point of the article. We can argue about this over and over or leave it at that.

        • Kufar Dawg

          Yeah, and Hitler was kind to his dogs. Get stuffed, preferably in any one of the islamofascist states that infest the world today. Put your ass where your mouth is and live amongst the "good" and "moderate" scuzzlums that must comprise the majority of the populous of any islamofascist state by your idiotic rainbow hugging logic. 1400 years of unending islamofascist terrorism and persecution refute your BS assertions.

          • theleastthreat

            Even the state of Israel had good relations with various Muslim countries at different times over the years under leaders of different Israeli parties. Did that make them simple minded rainbow huggers too? Even Begin was in peace negotiations with Yassir Arafat of all people. What you make of that?

          • Kufar Dawg

            Really? Those "good relations" certainly didn't help the nearly one million Jews ethnically cleansed from practically every scuzzlum state in the Mid-East and N. Africa. Nor has it stopped the endless islamofascist terrorism practised against Jews and Israel worldwide, DB.

          • theleastthreat

            Yes, really. Jews have been treated badly no matter where they have been. For centuries! They seem to have taken a long term view of things which may be one reason they are still around after thousands of years and other cultures aren't.
            Also, I don't think you read for content. Personally, I don't believe sitting around with fanatics or terrorists and discussing things over a cup of coffee is going to help. There has always been some power mad group out there. I doubt a perpetual state of war is going to change that and I think the Jews have that figured out already.

          • Kufar Dawg

            The Jews in the Mid-East are ALREADY at a state of perpetual war lying scumbag — they have been for the last 65 years.

    • jfhickey

      You complain of people assuming that critics of Islam are describing all Muslims. Rants like Bell's are not "criticism" of Islam so much as condemnations of Islam as irredeemably evil. But in any case, when you make general statements about a religion, you are talking about the religion of all the people who practice that religion. If you want to describe brutal behavior carried out under the banner of Islam (or Christianity), say so. But make clear that you don't ascribe that behavior to all the people who practice that religion today. Bell does not just condemn the brutal behavior of some Muslims. He slanders Islam as a religion.

      I think that most people who are culturally Muslim probably don't campaign for "Islam" any more than most "Christians" campaign for "Christianity." It really doesn't mean much from the inside. But from the outside, Islam includes all the people who identify with it, just as Christianity from the outside includes alll the people who identify as Christians. It is just brutally stupid to condemn the religion of all Muslims (or all Christians) just because of what a relatively few of them do.

      • theleastthreat

        The point of the article was the Islamophobe label. DId you not see that? Also, I wonder if that chip on your shoulder is starting to bother you.

      • Drakken

        If you cannot see that islam is a clear and present danger to us all, you are clearly deluded, east is east and west is west and never the twain shall meet. Sure there are some so called good muslims, but when push comes to shove they will side with their own against us and ours, always remember that. Slander islam? Bell just told of facts, logic and the rude awaking he had, as you will too, one way or another.

      • Kufar Dawg

        If you're a muzzie wouldn't that imply you subscribe to the tenets of the islamic faith? Can one be a "good" nazi? Why don't you go preach your "peaceful", "moderate", "tolerant" delusions about islam in any one of the islamofascist states which infest the world today.? Put your money where your mouth is.

    • Stern

      And Muslims ascribe hatred to everyone who even remotely suggests that their might be something wrong with their religion.

      • jfhickey

        Bell is not "remotely suggesting that there might be something wrong with their religion." He is condemning Islam as evil. But how receptive would you be to people who took it upon themselves to criticize your religion? If people want to reform the way their religion is practiced, they have to do it themselves, and usually in small groups of co-practitioners that know each other well.

        What Bell is doing is classic religious bigotry, driven by fear and ego. He isn't trying to make helpful criticisms of how Islam might be practiced, and you know it.

        • Drakken

          Islam is evil to it's very core and it's book the mein korampf is it's guide, your wishful kumbaya thinking is what delays the enevitable and makes it much more bloodier than it needs to be.

        • Kufar Dawg

          You're either mythically ignorant or a liar.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Yes, muslimes say islam is a religion of peace, and if you disagree with that statement, muslimes might just have you killed.

  • Rybbe

    Thank you Mr. Bell! I am so pleased I can now read your work here at Frontpagemag.com. You couldn't have written anything that has spoken to me or many of us more. After the 9-11-12 violence and our administration's abject failure at protecting U.S. citizens, a U.S. Ambassador for God's sake, I realize that my familiy and I are not going to be protected in the most basic way. If a U.S. Ambassador, and ex-SEALS can be thrown under the bus, little ole me and my family are certain road kill. We must think about who we are trusting to protect the U.S.!!

    • kufar dawg

      Your comments are telling. With the infiltration of our judiciary, legislature and law enforcement by islamofascists who can we trust in our government anymore? How do we know that scuzzlums in law enforcement aren't just going to murder us? Or finger us to be murdered by other islamofascists? For those of you who don't think this could ever happen, a pakistani Christian preacher, who was accused of blasphemy, but never even tried was disappeared from police custody, as in from the jail in which he was being held under the supervision of pakistani police officers.

    • jacob

      Then what you should do, is get of your seat and VOTE to get rid of the Muslim lover of the White
      House, same one who "suggested" his abjectly servile media to abstain from calling Muslim
      terrorists as such but "INSURGENTS", who apologized to the Muslim world at the Cairo meeting
      for American "MISDEEDS" to them; the same one who genuflexed to the Guardain of the Faith,
      the Saudi king an who claims America owes its independence to the Muslims, ignoring by the
      way, how many states has the Union and so on and so forth….
      And yes: I'm an ISLAMOPHOBE but not because I fear them but because I hate what they represent
      I'm against this asinine bending over backwards to comply with their demands in schools and
      elsewhere and to me, all those suporting "POLITICAL CORRECTESS" can take it and shove it
      where the sun doesn't shine…
      And finally, to those morons still believing in "moderate" Muslims, such as those pieces of work
      of JOY BEHAR and WHOOPI GOLDBERG, I want to ask whether there were not "moderates" all
      those dancing and giving out candy in the streets of QUEENS on 9/11, while people were
      jumping to their deaths from the WTC windows ?????

  • Mel

    Well said Eric! Your article here should be in every home! Keep up the good work!

  • Marty

    I don't object to being labeled as an islamphobe because it puts me in good company. There is an important clarification to be kept in mind, though: islamophobia apparently means an irrational fear and hatred of islam. My fear and hatred of islam is not irrational. Quite the contrary. Fearing and hating islam for its genocidal, totalitarian, and anti-semitic features is perfectly rational.

  • Schlomotion

    Eric Allen Edborg "Bell" is full of beans. He says "The word “Islamophobia” was popularized by Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization."

    The word Islamophobia was conceived and popularized by the French painter Nasreddine Dinet in the early 1900's, and also by the Runnymede Trust in 1997. The Runnymede Trust also combats antisemitism.

    When you start out your article with a misfact, it casts an aspersion on the rest of your article, and this case, an article replete with other misfacts. Mr. Bell, a low-level media mogul is trying to capitalize on Islamophobia as a vehicle for his self-promotion as a "persecuted" counter-jihadist. More power to him, as even the worthless man needs to eat, however, facts should be in order.

    • Advocatus

      Yo, Schlo, man, you love to smirk, sneer and snicker like a brain-dead teenage bimbo, but that doesn't make you special, ya know? Yeah, people who run the risk of being shot, stabbed, beheaded, or otherwise put to death for speaking out against Islamic supremacists just play at being "persecute." But anonymous little web warriors like you who live for the thrill of befouling comment threads day in, day out with inane rants and ad hominem diatribes are epic heroes of fearless valor. I salute you, mate!

      • Schlomotion

        I am not really impressed by people who "run the risk of being shot, stabbed, beheaded, or otherwise put to death" if they are not actually doing it in live action while trying to capture a flag or something. Trying to pass off Facebook posting as the opening scene in Dances With Wolves is such a joke.

        • Advocatus

          I couldn't care less about who or what you are impressed by. Or let me rephrase that: I'd be extremely suspicious of anything that you might find impressive, considering the deluded, self-righteous, narcissistic buffoon you are.

          Standing up to rampaging, homicidal Islamic bullies and their pathetic character-assassin friends in the West (of whom you can proudly claim to be a member) takes a great deal of courage. Seeing as you have none, you pooh-pooh those who do so you can feel superior without any risk to yourself whatsoever.

          "Trying to pass off Facebook posting as the opening scene in Dances With Wolves is such a joke." Do you mean a hand caressing ripe stalks of wheat or Costner's cavalry charge? Either way, the comment is a brainless non sequitur. But no worries, Flippo, no one expects much of you. If it gives you pleasure to rant, pontificate or otherwise vent on these threads as is your wont, by all means feel free. We wouldn't want to take that thumb you're sucking on out of your mouth, would we now? That would be just so cruel.

          • Schlomotion

            Obviously you do care, as you are taking great pains to defend Eric Bell's Facebook "career." For evaluation again: Eric Bell, a man of many aliases, foundering filmmaker did a highly publicized (in the small world) conversion from multiculturalist documentarian to hasbarist. Then he said some stupid thing on Facebook and is trying to equate that with being a novelist or a cartoonist who is persecuted for his insight. Wooden nickel. You are defending wooden nickels as legal tender. So, yes, you care if somebody throws it on the ground.

      Why does anyone bother engaging with this troll. This post is typical. He cannot find anything substantial, so he picks on one tiny thing and claims it render the entire article worthless. Point this out and he will change the subject. Anything to provoke and annoy.
      IGNORE, IGNORE, IGNORE.

      • Schlomotion

        The article is composed of tiny things, each of them non-factual, with Ponzi scheme references to other authors who do the same.

        • Kufar Dawg

          "Ponzi scheme"? Huh? Did someone spike your camel urine cocktail?

      • Advocatus

        I'd say you're perfectly right about that.

      Clearly the article does NOT say that Hamas INVENTED the word. It says that Hamas POPULARIZED it. Since you are a Loonwatch.com troll, you ought to know something about that.

  • sunarrow

    Homo/robotic needs to wake up and get some back bone.

  • jfhickey

    I haven't usually used the term "Islamophobe," because it's a little too abstract. But "Eric Bell" has perhaps made the term more useful by bringing it into our usage more, so it may be more worthwhile now to examine its use.

    Bell says, "“Islamophobia” literally means an irrational fear of the ideology known as Islam. " That is one meaning, but another, slightly different meaning is an irrational fear of the people practicing the religion known as Islam. Just as most Christians do not think of themselves as practicing an "ideology," most Muslims don't either. Most people who are culturally Christian or Muslim don't even get too involved with the religious doctrines, let alone any "ideology." When Bell frames “Islamophobia” as "an irrational fear of the ideology known as Islam," he is skewing the discussion to whether the bizarre ideologies he identifies with Islam are something to be afraid of.

    There are of course people in the world who have a violent ideology they identify with Islam. But that is not Islam, except to those terrorists and to people like Bell.

    • kateyleigh

      That was pretty abstract. And a bit detached, perhaps.

      • jfhickey

        It does tend to be fault of mine to be maybe too abstract. But in the atmosphere of rage that seems to prevail in forums like this, some more detachment might be a good idea. People are often not using their brains.

    • Stern

      You know what? I do – now – have an irrational fear of people practicing the religion known as Islam. I know what they hear in their mosques, I know what they read in their Koran, and it scares the living daylights out of me. If there was a huge cohort of Muslims standing up and proclaiming loudly that they want to live in peace alongside me, that they have no desire to kill me because I'm the child of monkeys and pigs, that they don't seek to impose their idea of holy law on me, that they don't think I should pay a tax for being Jewish – well then, I might not fear them. And come to think of it, I don't that's irrational at all.

      • jfhickey

        There is a large cohort of Muslims proclaiming that they want to live in peace with you. American Muslims, for example, generally strongly affirm their desire to live in peace, and they are not trying to tax you for being Jewish, and they are not trying to impose their religion on you. You don't know what they hear in their mosques. You are imagining an apocalyptic scenario that has no relation to the American reality.

        • Stern

          Prove it. They are not making it known to me in a public way – and that's why I worry about them.

          • jfhickey

            Are you making it known to them in a public way that you want to live in peace with them? You seem to be doing quite the opposite.

          • Schlomotion

            I cannot vote this comment up enough.

          • Kufar Dawg

            Yeah because defending islamofascism requires endless lies… I'm sorry but his Tu Quoque fallacy of argumentation doesn't work.

            Excuse me…Muslim immigrants to the U.S., in order to assimilate into American society, must make it known to Americans that they wish to live in peace here. American citizens have welcomed Muslims, and the very low numbers of hate crimes against Muslims reflects that. However, if you look at England, a large percentage of British Muslims, through their violent actions, have shown that they are not interested in assimilating into British society. THAT will happen in America, if Barack Obama is elected again.

          • jfhickey

            So what's your plan? Do we round up all Muslims and deport them unless they sign a loyalty oath? You are a Nazi.

        • dajjal

          There have been a few Arabic speaking infidels visiting mosques in America. They found Wahhabist literature and media being distributed, literature that preaches hate and perpetual warfare, just as the Qur'an and hadith do. If you think they don't, read reliance of the traveller, Book O, Chapter 9 to discover the relevant Islamic law. To obtain a clue, read "What's Wrong With Islam & Muslims?".

          • Kufar Dawg

            ALL the islamic texts are chock full of antisemitic vomit, ALL OF THEM. Some of the antisemitic vomit found in the hadeeths calls for the extermination of Jews. The most holey and perfect man in islam, to be admired by all muslimes, was a mass-murdering, antisemitic psychopath.

        • PaulRevereNow

          You are wrong. Anytime a small community of Muslims–perhaps 40 to 50 families, or about 200 people–proposes to build a giant mosque(as in Murfreesboro, TN), of 53,000 square feet, with parking spaces for 15,000 cars, you know you aren't dealing with Muslims that want to live in peace with their neighbors. Rather, these communities are dealing with Islamic fanatics that want to spread their religion to all corners of the U.S.; and disrupt, and eventually rule, the towns and cities they are in.

          • jfhickey

            Your figures are wrong. They built a 12,000 square foot building (that would be about 120 feet by 100 feet if a rectangle), including a prayer hall to hold about 500 people, with hopes to eventually build a gym and a pool. Your figure of 15,000 cars for the parking lot sounds like the imaginings of mental illness. There are reportedly about 250-300 families who regularly use the mosque. See http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/11/us/islamic-cent…. There has not been the slightest report of any attempt to dominate anybody.

            When Christian congregations build "mega-churches," does that convince you they have a secret plan for domination? You are showing signs of severe clinical paranoia.

          • Kufar Dawg

            We've already read the statements of the founders of CAIR islamic DB (as exposed at anti-Cair.net). We've already heard your insane imams, asinine ayatollahs and mad mullahs endlessly rant and rave about making the world islamic. Your lies run thin, as thin as the civilised veneer of islam.

    • jacob

      With all due respect, allow me to transcribe the words of YOSHIRO SAGAMORI, who years ago
      used to write a column in the Jerusalem Post….

      It stated :
      "Every practicing Muslim is a terrorist.
      It is what has been hammered into his head from cradle to grave and it is what his religion expect
      from him"..

      And I dare anybody, Ayatollahs included, to prove these words wrong….

      • jfhickey

        I don't know who YOSHIRO SAGAMORI is,but he is wrong. Who are you or he to make such a (ridiculous) unsupported statement and then declare it must be true unless someone disproves it? If I say that "jacob" is a bigot, and I dare anyone to disprove it, does that make it so?

        • Kufar Dawg

          The actions of muslimes worldwide, in the here and now, expose your lies as being as thin as tissue paper. The texts of islam are full of explicit bigotry against Jews and Christians as well.
          But of course, delusions and lies are what your religion is allah about ain't it Ahmed?

        • PaulRevereNow

          I never heard of Yoshiro Sagamori either, but it is you that is wrong again. Look at history, at the history of Islam; and how it's a history of constant warfare, conquest, and atrocities; beginning with the extermination of two Jewish tribes in Medina, and the expulstion of a third, back in the 7th Century. The warfare against unbelievers has continued up to and through the present day; and the examples are way too numerous to list here. Yes, there are numerous Muslims that simply want to live in peace with their neighbors, and that's OK with me; but they don't set the agenda of the Jihadist Muslims. History was, and is, made by the Jihadists; thus anyone who is aware of Islam's violent history qualifies as an "Islamophobe." And That's OK with me, too.

          • jfhickey

            Characterizing Islam today by looking at the history of Islam is like characterizing "Christianity" today by looking at the history of Christianity. Conquest by war, the persecution of Jews, murder of apostates. Crazies today in Islam seem to outnumber crazies in Christianity, but people like you and your cohorts seem to be working hard to catch up there. You seem to yearn for holy war.

            Condemnation of "Islam" is condemnation of the religion of the Muslims who want to live in peace as well as condemnation of the religion of those who are violent. It is called religious bigotry, and it is despicable to spew hatred towards those you acknowledge want to live in peace, who vastly outnumber those who seek violence. Which do you seek?

          • Kufar Dawg

            I agree w/you as far as the bloody, intolerant history of islamofascism goes. The problem is lying muslime DB, that the bloody, intolerant history of islamofascism hasn't ended it is ongoing, all over the islamic world, in the here and now.

    • Drakken

      Your denial of reality is stunning. Open a newspaper, read foreign news, you see islamic slaughter every bloody day, when it comes here and it will, what are you going to say then?

      • Kufar Dawg

        I believe the person you're replying to is a muslime liar, but I'm being redundant.

    • dajjal

      Muslims are commanded to obey Allah & Moe. Emulation of Moe is a requirement, see 33:21. Moe was a genocidal terrorist, see 33:26 and Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220. Only those who engage in jihad are believers: 9:111. 49:15, 8:1-6.

      Muslims are commanded to wage perpetual war: 8:39 & 9:29. Jihad is ordained for them: 2:216. Shirkers are destined for the fire: 9:38-39. Islam is all or nothing; selectivity is not allowed: 2:85.

      Thus it is impossible to practice Islam properly without genocidal, terrorist offensive aggression against infidels. If there is a right to practice Islam, then all our rights are abrogated.

  • Andy

    A good piece. A keeper. My only quarrel is with semantics. "Phobe" is fear and we don't have "fear" of Islam any more than that 20% of Americans had no fear of Hitler. It is a matter of "awareness" of reality and a refusal to wear blinders.

    • http://twitter.com/undefined @undefined

      Which is exactly why the article puts the word "Islamophobe" in quotes, every single time the word is used. You can put your red pen away now.

    Islamophobia: This imlies an irrational fear of Islam. There is nothing irrational about this.
    THESE PEOPLE want to subdue, convert, or kill us! And they seem to take a perverse pleasure in doing it with as much violence as possible.

  • MarkT

    hickey – sounds like you didn't read the whole article. you obviously haven't read the koran or teachings of the muslims so-called prophet. why do you think the islamists commit acts of terror? because their teachings explicitly tell them to. Get a clue!

    Actually, an Islamophobe today is pretty much what the red baiters were in the Cold War era.

    The red baiters were absolutely right about the evils and intentions of communism.

    But they exploited much exaggerated fears of this real evil to bash Democrats at the polls and drag America into unnecessary global alliances and faraway, meaningless wars to save capitalists from nightmares about an enemy that scared them blind.

    Today, those who do much the same using Islam as the scarecrow are called "Islamophobes."

    Are you an Islamophobe?

    by Lorna Salzman
    (written 2010)

    Are you an Islamophobe? Here is a simple test.

    Do you favor equal rights and treatment of women and men?

    Do you oppose stoning of women accused of adultery?

    Do you favor mandatory education of girls everywhere?

    Do you oppose slavery and child prostitution?

    Do you support complete freedom of expression and the press?

    Do you support the right of an individual to worship in her chosen religion?

    Do you oppose government- and mosque-supported anti-Semitic publications, radio, TV and textbooks?

    Do you oppose the wearing of burqas in public places, schools and courts?

    Do you oppose segregation of the sexes in public places and houses of worship?

    Do you oppose the death penalty for nonMuslims and Muslims who convert to another religion?

    Do you oppose "honor" killings?

    Do you oppose female genital mutilation?

    Do you oppose forced sexual relations?

    Do you oppose discrimination against homosexuals?

    Do you support the right to criticize religion?

    Do you oppose polygamy?

    Do you oppose child marriage, forced or otherwise?

    Do you oppose the qu-ranic mandate to kill nonMuslims and apostates?

    Do you oppose the addition of sharia courts to your country's legal system?

    Do you disagree with the qu-ran which asserts the superiority of Islam to all other religions?

    If you answered most or all of these affirmatively, you are a vile Islamophobe and deserve to be beheaded as the qu-ran instructs.

    If you answered one third or more of them affirmatively, you are a borderline Islamophobe and need to receive brainwashing to become a full-fledged dhimmi.

    If you answered a quarter or fewer affirmatively, you need a few private lessons in dhimmitude to scrub yourself clean of those remnants of Islamophobia.

    If you answered affirmatively to NONE of these, Congratulations! you are a worthy observant Muslim and have a bright future vilifying Jews, torturing women or inshallah, becoming a suicide bomber.

    • dajjal

      For a true assessment of Islam, not an image, read its canonical texts, beginning with the Qur'an and at least one hadith collection. You can find links to the Qur'an and Ibn Sa'd's hadith collection at http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/ Follow up by reading "The Sealed Nectar" or Guillaume's "The Life of Muhammad". The conceptual content of "Innocence of Muslims" is true and verifiable from authentic sources. My blog post on the subject of its truthfulness includes links to Islam's canon.

    • Aussi92

      Just as you accuse us of illiteracy about Islam, may I also suggest the same applies to many Muslims concerning Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. Judging by the acts of violence committed against us 'infidels', can you blame us for being ungracious in our thinking towards the Islamic faith? Until Muslims can allow others to critique their faith without fear or threat of violence, there will always be misunderstandings between you and the rest of us 'infidels'.

      You lie! Even ex-Muslim jihadists speak about the atrocities committed against Muslim women by Muslim men. When Muslims convert to Christianity they tell the truth as Jesus commands. There is Egyptian man that runs a business in my small town. When I told him that some Muslims had bought a store down the street, he became clearly and immediately agigated. He said that his cousin, a doctor and Christian, had been murdered by Muslims for treating a Muslim woman.

    • Omar

      Sana, this is not about Muslims. This is about Islamism. Unfortunately, too many countries in the Middle East have been influenced by the radical groups affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood called for world domination. There is a Memorandum written by the Muslim Brotherhood and published 21 years ago that describes the Islamist agenda in North America. The Memorandum lists 29 key groups operating in the U.S. and Canada, including the Muslim Students Association and the Islamic Society of North America. The fact remains that radical Islamist groups want a world dominated by Sharia law.

  • Aussi92

    I have lived in a predominantly Muslim society and I know of many Muslims who feel powerless to leave their faith because of the threat of ostracism, bully and even death! In fact, religious places of worship such as churches are threatened with negative repercussions should they proselytize a Muslim and in this particular Muslim society, it is even against the law to try to convert a Muslim to another faith. So please, Muslims may be free to leave their faith but not without retribution. You need to check your own understanding on the freedom Muslims have to leave their faith.

    While your article is excellent, you appear to be oblivious to the proper use of pronouns. Throughout, you refer a plural pronoun to a singular noun. Perhaps you've become very touchy at the prospect of being called a sexist by using the correct male pronoun. "An “Islamophobe” is more interested in the truth than the approval of their peers." …it's: "…the approval of HIS peers." Please make a note.

    Eric, you have given me a new hope. I had arrived at the conclusion that the effort to help a "liberal" to see the light was a hopeless and futile endeavor.

  • US Muslim

    This is extremely childish and a load of intellectual junk. An over-simplification, if you may.

    Doesn't Christianity require submission to God? What about Judaism? God didn't give much of a choice to the Israelites under the leadership of Moses. We all know what happened when Moses found out about the Golden Calf…he didn't exactly hold a summit or negotiations with those who worshipped it.

    Moreover, I don't see how I've been "victimized" by Islam. I've been a Muslim all my life and see no contradiction between the US Constitution and the core principles of Islam.

    This article is just another pitiful, pathetic attack on Islam badly disguised as a defense of what is perceived to be "Islamophobia". I admit that many Muslims are thin-skinned and small-minded to understand open, philosophical discussions on Islam, Muhammad, and Islamic history, which could go in one of several directions.

    Silly articles like this one have no effect on my beliefs…instead, it just goes on to confirm the desperation that certain individuals have with regard to how to "deal" with Islam. Well, I've got news for you: Islam wasn't born yesterday. It came out of the Arabian Peninsula at a time when the English language didn't exist…and that's a lot older than any of us who are alive today. And it doesn't look like it's going anywhere fast. God Willing, it'll continue to be around long after everyone reading this article is 6 feet under (or burnt to ashes, or eaten by wildlife, etc. etc.)

    Have a nice day.

      Textbook example of a Westernized Muslim who's views condemn his own prophet and religion and doesn't even realize it! "Thin-skinned, small-minded Muslims," like Muhammad you mean? I wonder how far an open, philosophical discussion would've gone with him as an unbeliever. Hmm…
