How Muslims and their ignorant leftist allies discredit the honest reseachers of Islam, who dare holding Islam's dangerously violent and terroristic theological foundation and history bare to the world, as "Islamophobes", but the same does not apply to criticism of Christianity and other creeds...
The word "Islamophobia" itself is fairly recent. The organization of the Islamic conference uses the word to “rubber stamp” anything that is critical of Islam and Muslims. 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 Islamists-created charade, and does not see through 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 sacred tenets without being termed “Christophobes”? The liberal west sees this as an okay thesis. But when you talk about Islam, a similar criterion does not apply. Now, Islam and Muslims are a lump sum. You criticize Islam or Muslims, you will be termed an Islamophobe.
Liberal-democratic societies hold a definite distinction between a man and his beliefs. Individuals deserve respect. Beliefs should not enjoy the same status. They are to be criticized, analyzed, synthesized and so on, for sake of social and ethical progress. Beliefs, found faulty or unfit for humans, should be discredited. The history of science bears me out. Many scientific theories were discredited and abandoned through the ages. New theories emerged as they encompassed a better understanding of the world phenomena around us.
I submit that Muslims are human brethren. They have equal rights and obligations under state laws that are universal in nature and apply equally to every citizen of the state.
I also agree that Islam, as a belief system, is to be subjected to analysis, criticism, and scrutiny, just like other belief systems that humans dealt with (Christianity, Hinduism, Positivism, etc). Faulty aspects of Islamic belief are to be rejected, and even ridiculed, if reason allows.
I also affirm that a distinct difference between Muslims and Islam exists. 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 any aspects of Islamic beliefs, he/she is termed “Islamophobe”? Islamic organizations go even lower than that, they call a decent researcher of Islam like Robert Spencer a “bigot”. The fact of the matter is, when an organization like the “Council on American Islamic Relations” (CAIR) calls Mr. Spencer a “bigot”, it knows full well that he is an honest researcher of Islam, but wants, aided by the liberal-leftists, to hypnotize the eyes of infidels to make them see that Islam and Muslims are none but one thing.
Muslim organizations will attempt at demonizing anyone critical of Islam. Honest and objective researchers like Spencer, Sina, and Khan et al. will all be termed “Islamophobes” and “bigots” by such organizations. Such accusations, however, are mere lies. Spencer and others are not Islamophobes. Phobia is an irrational fear. Critical analysis and research of Islam is not “fear” in the first place, it’s about telling the facts. Analyze Islam through its authentic sources, namely the Qur’an and the Hadith and as well as history, you will uncover a cult of torture, assassination, terror, and genocide, etc. The so-called Islamophobes, through their honest research, only try to hold this hidden legacy of Islam bare to the world.
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-murdered and stole; he attacked peaceful tribes and tortured people unnecessarily. Is this a prophet, who is to be respected only, not criticized?
Islam is a religion and state, where Muslim citizens rule and non-Muslims are subjected to a second-class 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 waging war against non-Muslims to take over their property and land. Is this a belief system that is to be respected only not criticized?
Yet, if you criticize this belief, you are termed a “bigot” and “Islamophobe” by Islamic organizations, and their useful western allies!
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 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?
