UK Magazine: Forget About ‘Islamophobia’ Let’s Tackle Islamism, ‘It Is Time To Unfold The Lie’


Unfortunately, when it comes to the “Religion of Peace” many still attempt to create a dichotomy of “good Islam” verses “bad Islam” when, in reality, all of Islam is inherently destructive. Sure, there are many Muslims who are peaceful, but they are not peaceful because of their religion. They are peaceful in spite of it. If Europe and the West as a whole were truly serious about tackling “Islamism” they would need to tackle Islam itself, but that is something that an intellectually and politically atrophied West will never have the willpower to do. Until it is too late …

Hadith, Bukhari, 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The ‘Prophet’ Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day…”

By DOUGLAS MURRAY, Standpoint – “‘The good news is that government is finally dealing with the issue and it is now a priority,’ said the government minister in a BBC film last month. And of which of the panoply of issues currently facing our country was this speaker thinking? The stalled economy? Youth unemployment? No. The words were spoken by Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the ‘minister for faith’, and the issue she was happy to report as a UK government ‘priority’ was the tackling of ‘Islamophobia’.

Coming just days after the bombing of the Boston Marathon by two young radical Muslims, Baroness Warsi’s comments were not just poorly timed — they were poorly thought through. The killing of three people and injury of more than 260 others would have been the perfect time for Britain’s only Muslim cabinet minister to address and assault the ideology which causes such attacks: radical Islam. B Days later, a soldier was beheaded by Islamists on the streets of Woolwich. But — aside from attacking the most irrelevant, fringe extremists like Al-Muhajiroun — Warsi has never taken up this role. This is not just her own failing. It is an exemplar of a wider cultural failure.

In the first years after 9/11 there was some success in turning the global spotlight onto what Islamic fundamentalists believed, taught and aimed to achieve. But then — at some point in the last five or more years — that spotlight was turned around. It was not on the extremists but on the rest of us — Muslim and non-Muslim — that it settled. It became all of us who were the problem — not the crimes of the fundamentalists but our response to them. The primary problem was no longer Islamic fundamentalism but ‘Islamophobia’. This narrative has not only become pervasive in our societies — it has become dominant. It is stopping us from dealing with the most severe challenge to our security. It is time to unfold the lie.

I have long argued — in this magazine and elsewhere — that the very word ‘Islamophobia’ is a nonsense term. A ‘phobia’ is something of which one is irrationally afraid. Yet it is supremely rational to be scared of elements of Islam and of its fundamentalist strains in particular. Nevertheless the term has been very successfully deployed, not least because it has the aura of a smear. ‘Islamophobes’ are not only subject to an irrational and unnecessary fear; they are assumed to be motivated (because most Muslims in the West are from an ethnic minority) by ‘racism’. Who would not recoil from such charges?

There is also something akin to the charge of anti-Semitism in the accusation — a link that many Jewish leaders have promoted. It was several years after 9/11 that I first remember speaking on a panel with a leader from the Jewish community. My co-speaker framed his remarks by saying, ‘We must fight anti-Semitism but we must also fight Islamophobia.’ He could not answer my question of how you could condemn Islamic anti-Semitism without committing an act of ‘Islamophobia’. But the term has caught on, in part because of its catch-all availability.” Read more.

Flashback: US Military Instructor Suspended For Daring To Speak The Truth About Islam – “The instructor of a college course that taught top military officers the United States was at war with Islam has been relieved of teaching duties and the course ordered redesigned to reflect U.S. policy, a military spokesman said on Wednesday. The elective course at the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College included a slide that asserted ‘the United States is at war with Islam and we ought to just recognize that we are war with Islam,’ Pentagon officials said in April as they launched a review of the course.” Read more.

Flashback: UK: PM Cameron Regurgitates PC Drivel After Jihadist Beheading, ‘There Is Nothing In Islam That Justifies This Truly Dreadful Act’ – “David Cameron today condemned the Woolwich murder as a ‘betrayal of Islam’ as he insisted Britain would stand resolute against terror attacks… the Prime Minister said: ‘This was not just an attack on Britain – and on our British way of life. It was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. ‘There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.” Read more.
