I was reading a story at Jihad Watch about how UK MP’s are calling for “Islamophobia” to be classified as “racism”, in which they invoke the words of a college student, and how they want to criminalize claims that Islam is spread by the sword. They’re doing this even though Islamophobia doesn’t exist and is only a tool concocted by the Islamic enemy to kill criticism of Islam, that Islam is a religion, not a race, and that Islam was indeed spread by the sword, and by the sword of Mohammad himself. As Robert Spencer aptly puts it, “this entire initiative is a totalitarian war against reality”.
These anti-reality totalitarians will stop at nothing to push their dishonest agenda. Case in point: I have light skin and red hair. I was born to Albanian Muslim parents in America and I was raised Muslim. I have a good number of Muslim relatives who are white, and even some who have blond hair and blue eyes. Yet when Muslims and leftists dismiss my criticism of Islam, I mention that I was raised Muslim, and they either deny it, call me a liar, and even an Uncle Tom.
Look at the state of the “world” that calls itself Islamic. It’s a world that completely lacks self-criticism, which leads it to blame its horrific state on everyone but itself. We in the West criticize the West and praise Islam, just like Muslims. This self-destructive streak of ours has to end or our worlds will resemble each other more than they already do.
As I wrote in my introduction to My Mohammad Cartoons Vol. 1 book:
“I draw Mohammad because if I don’t -and many have stopped drawing him- then we will more closely resemble the Islamic world, which is a world where the bad guy won. I will continue to do my individual part to make sure that our world is never going to be that world, one Mohammad cartoon at a time.”
As for “Islamophobia”: a phobia is “a persistent, abnormal, and irrational fear of a specific thing or situation that compels one to avoid it, despite the awareness and reassurance that it is not dangerous”. It’s rational to fear an irrational, political religion like Islam, one that is motivating a war against the civilized world; a war that’s being fought by the Islamic enemy on every imaginable front, while we do everything we can to not offend Muslims, as if it’s a moral imperative.
As Andrew Cummins tweeted, (often wrongly attributed to Christopher Hitchens): “Islamophobia. A word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.”
The real problem is not “Islamophobia”, but Islamophilia, which is rampant in the West. Muslims not only want to kill criticism of Islam by any means necessary, but they want us to praise Islam, even though Islam condemns us.
We often hear about Islam’s “blasphemy laws”, but we rarely hear it said that whatever “laws” Islam has are irrelevant when it comes to us. We take it for granted, for some twisted reason, that Islam’s “laws” should be observed by all, even by non-Muslims.
One of the ugliest ideas pushed by the Obama administration was that “we will hold sacred the beliefs held sacred by others.” That’s grotesque, especially when it comes to Islam and its belief that to be non-Muslim is to be non-human. It’s that evil idea that leads Muslims to commit the most obscene acts of violence against non-Muslims. The only innocents in Islam are Muslims, so we’re all guilty until proven Muslim.
And it’s that evil idea which instantly contaminated new Muslim convert Sinead O’Connor to tweet something that she herself was shocked by. She’s now named Shuhuda’ Sadaqat, and she tweeted shortly after she converted, on Nov. 2, 2018:
“I’m terribly sorry. What I’m about to say is something so racist I never thought my soul could ever feel it. But truly I never wanna spend time with white people again (if that’s what non-Muslims are called). Not for one moment, for any reason. They are disgusting.”
And the vile Islamic propagandist Linda Sarsour “magically changed from white to a ‘woman of color’ in an instant”, just by putting on a hijab.
Islam is religion. It’s politics. It’s ideology. It’s not race. And it’s ridiculous that this argument has to be made, but we live in ridiculous times, so here we are.
This all boils down to Freedom, to Freedom of Speech. We have the freedom to criticize anything and anyone, at anytime, most especially those evil people and things which forbid criticism.
