Nihad Awad is executive director of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas terrorist-linked group Council on American-Islamic Relations. He says President Obama should speak out against anti-Muslim rhetoric and discrimination against Muslims. “We should have [a] clear stance by the U.S. government and intellectual leaders to fight against Islamophobia and anti-Muslim discrimination that has been rampant after 9/11.”
Awad says U.S. visa policies should be changed to allow Muslim intellectuals and business leaders to travel to America without fear of harassment at points of entry. Awad notes that President Obama cannot act alone and Congress must help to fix the damage done to U.S.-Muslim relations over the past several years.
Why there is no such thing as ISLAMOPHOBIA
By Ibn Kammuna
The word “Islamophobia” itself is fairly recent. The organization of the Islamic conference uses the word to “rubber stamp” anything that is viewed as anti-Islam or anti-Muslim. In this manner, Islam and Muslims are viewed as a lump sum. Hence, you criticize the one, you criticize the other. That is how Muslims want it. The liberal west goes along with this sharade, and does not see clearly the difference between a man, on one side, and his beliefs, on the other.
Why is that? Why do we in the west, see no issue in criticizing Christianity and its most sacred tenets without being termed “Christophobes”. The liberal west sees this as an okay thesis. However, talk about Islam, and a similar critierion is not applied. Now, Islam and Muslims are a lump sum. You cannot criticize Islam without being termed as an Islamophobe.
Just as we can criticize Christianity, we should be able to criticize Islam. People like David Hume and Bertrand Russell Criticized Christianity. No one called them “Christophobes”. Why is it then that once someone criticizes some Islamic beliefs, he/she is termed “Islamophobe”? Islamic organizations go even lower than that and call a decent researcher of Islam like Robert Spencer a “bigot”. The fact of the matter is when an organization like the “Counsel on American Islamic Relations” (CAIR) calls Mr. Spencer a “bigot” knows full well that he is an honest researcher of Islam, but want to hypnotize the eyes of infidels, aided by the liberals, to make them see that Islam and Muslims are none but one thing.
Muslim organizations will attempt at demonizing anyone critical of Islam. People like Spencer, Sina, Khan,..etc. are all termed “Islamophobes” and “bigots” according to such organizations. Such claims however are mere lies. Spencer and others are not Islamophobes. You see, a phobia is an irrational fear. Fear of Islam is not. It is based on analyzing the Qur’an and the Hadith. Analyze Islam through its authentic sources, and you will uncover a cult of torture, fear, lies, genocides, assassinations..etc. Islam proper spells pure EVIL. Anyone in his right mind should reject the basic tenets of Islam.
Muhammad claimed he was a prophet, yet he assassinated people, raped, mass-murdrerd, stole, attacked peaceful tribes, tortured people unnecessarily. Is this a prophet that is to be respected or trashed?
Islam is a religion and state where Muslim citizens rule and non-Muslims are subjected to a second classs citizenry. It is a religion that forces non-Muslims to pay special taxes, just because they are not Muslims. It is a religion where an individual is to be killed if he leaves Islam and adopts another belief system. It is a religion that does not give equal status to all citizens of the state. It is a religion that preaches hate toward non-Muslims, preaches to go to war against non-Muslims to take over their property and land. Is this a belief system that is to be respected or trashed? Yet, if you criticize such beliefs, you are termed as a “bigot” and “Islamophobe” by Islamic organizations!
It is a sad fact that the western liberals are victims of their own ignorance. They do not know what Islam is all about. They do not take the time to study Islam and know it for what it is; a bigoted belief system that is worse than Nazism, worthy only of trashing.
Isn’t it time for the liberals to start reading the Qur’an and the Hadith, and learn the true nature of Islam? Isn’t it time? It has been a few years since the horrific day of 9/11. Isn’t it time? FAITH FREEDOM
It isn’t ISLAMOPHOBIA when they really ARE trying to kill you.
