I discuss, in this article, the concept of Islamophobia. Does it Exist? And, Who is responsible for marketing such a concept? And, Who benefits from it?
I believe the concept itself was invented by Muslims in the west to malign anyone who criticizes Islam. It is a way of “shaming” an intellectual to criticize Islam. The good news is that thinkers critical of Islam do not fall for such a lie. I say this is a lie because Islamophobia is a concept unique in its use to Islam. There are people who criticize Christianity. No one calls them “Christophobes”. There are people who criticize Hinduism. No one calls them “Hinduphobes”. So, why is this “phobia” unique to Islam? Simple analysis will reveal a hidden fact: Fear of Islam is not a phobia at all. It is real, genuine and honest. A phobia is an irrational fear. Fear of Islam is very rational. In Islam, beheadings –as per Sharia- are the norm. Cutting of limbs is the norm. Killing apostates is the norm. Discrimination between groups of people based on their religious affiliation is the norm. A Muslim man can run for political and military offices. A non-Muslim can’t. Fear of Islam and its draconian beliefs is very rational.
Facts on the ground
Facts on the ground prove my point here. We ought to fear Islam in a rational way, and not allow it to sit foot in any free society. Just in the last week, proponents of this evil called Islam did many good deeds. Here is just a one-week sample:
- Chinese Muslims stormed a train station sending to Allah 33 innocent people and injuring more than 100 people: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2570996/At-27-dead-109-injured-gang-knife-wielding-men-attack-train-station-China.html
- They slaughtered like sheep and gunned down students and teachers in a Nigerian school http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/dozens-students-killed-nigerian-school-22660868
- Killed 12 security staff for a polio vaccine unit: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/01/us-pakistan-polio-attack-idUSBREA200AA20140301
- Killed 28 in Nigeria and set ablaze a Catholic church burning nuns: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/01/us-pakistan-polio-attack-idUSBREA200AA20140301
I found this news quickly for the purpose of this article. I am sure the readers can find many more gifts for this week from the “Religion of Peace” folks.
Correct me if I am wrong
Now, I do not want to be looking like a cheap “Islamophobe”, but when I look at Islam’s history, I see a bloody one. When I look at the dictates of Shari’a, I see a barbaric system of punishment, worthy of the dustbin of history. When I look at traditional Islamic theology, I see a very prejudist, discriminatory, and supremacist belief system.
Not only that, but when I look at the news and see what some current day Muslims are doing, my cup overfills, and I say enough is enough. This is a religion that we should not allow an inch in civil society. Muslims can go immigrate to Saudi Arabia, Iran, or any Islamic heaven they think of. Their beliefs are not welcome in open societies. Their practices are not welcome in civil society. They can go to some Muslim country, and live there happily ever after dreaming of a seventh century barbaric utopia.
