How Islamofascists use ‘Islamophobia’ to stifle debate, limit free speech

Written By | Apr 1, 2014

HOUSTON, April 1, 2014 — The term ‘Islamophobia’ was created by Islamofacists and their elitist progressive allies in higher education and the media to stifle and shut down debate about the true, barbaric nature of Islam and to attack and very successfully minimize free speech throughout the free world. It was a brilliant creation, implying that any speech that is not in direct praise of Islam is both racist and is so out of the mainstream that having those thoughts constitutes a mental disorder.

The phrase Islamophobia is often used as an incendiary insult by an Islamofascist who is upset that another person had the nerve to tell the truth about Islam, but what does the word truly mean? The suffix ‘phobia’ is defined as an irrational fear – Islamophobia, therefore, would be defined as having an irrational fear of Islam. In reality, fearing Islam is nothing more than rational self-interest – especially if you are gay, Jewish or a female. The argument could very easily be made that it would be irrational not to fear Islam.

The rational fear of Islam stems from Sharia law, which can be defined as strict Koranic law. The Koran is the holy book of Islam in which Allah reveals his rules and codes of conduct that govern almost every single aspect of private and public life, to his followers through Allah’s prophet, Muhammad. The Koran is said to be the perfect word of Allah, and is full of direct commands, rules and regulations that govern everything from personal hygiene to the banking system to the criminal justice system. Islam is not just a religion; it is a theo-political ideology that denounces any political format that isn’t dominated by Sharia law.

Sharia law is inseparable from Islam. For a Muslim to claim that he or she does not follow Sharia, is to claim that he or she is not a practicing Muslim. The ultimate goal of Islam and Sharia is to form a caliphate in which the entire world lives under Sharia law and the entire world is governed by one Muslim leader at the seat of the Caliphate (the Islamic government) in Jerusalem (after the destruction of Israel, of course). Sharia separates the world into the House of Islam and the House of War. The Koran requires Muslims to wage jihad against the House of War to destroy it and bring the entire world into the House of Islam.

Violence, dishonesty and subversion of the moral, legal and cultural identities of infidel countries are not only sanctioned, but required, of Islam’s followers to further the ultimate goal of forcing the entire world to submit to living under Sharia law.

There are 56 different Islamic states that make up the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) that have enshrined at least 50% of Sharia into their country’s legal systems, and almost a dozen of them that strictly comply with all of Sharia law. In these countries there are designated religious police that go on “Sharia patrols” and dish out their own justice without any further adjudication.

Strict adherence to Sharia law includes the following: death to apostates (those who leave the religion), execution of homosexuals, stoning of adulterers, the complete subjugation of all women and, eventually, either the death, conversion, or agreement by all infidels (non-Muslims) to live as second class citizens and pay a tax (the jizya) for being privileged with the right to live.

Therefore, when it comes to any individual that cherishes their freedom and does not wish to live as slaves to an evil theo-political ideology, fear of Islam/Sharia is more than rational.

Islamofascists like CAIR (the Center for American Islamic Relations) like to claim that the phrase Islamophobia is necessary because of the rapid increase in anti-Muslim discrimination in the West since 9/11/01. However, this is completely unfounded. According to a study done by the Center for Security Policy  , “From 2000 through 2009, the Center found that, according to the FBI statistics, Jewish victims of hate crimes outnumbered Muslim victims by about six to one. Subsequent FBI statistics for 2010 and 2011show a ratio of Jewish to Muslim victims of about five to one.” However, Islamofascists have learned from their progressive counterparts in that empirical evidence should be completely ignored when it is unhelpful in promoting their agenda.

The success of the Islamofascists in utilizing the phrase Islamophobia to stifle any and all criticism of Islam, coupled with the constant threat of violence if the Islamists do not get what they want, has achieved results that Allah himself could never have imagined, especially in Europe.

In Europe almost all criticism of Islam has been criminalized through the imposition of  “hate speech” laws in place in all 27 countries in the European Union. On paper, these laws seem to protect all groups from hate speech, but in practice, Islam is the only true protected class.

There is no way to know in advance if your speech or actions will be considered hate speech, because these laws all rely on the subjective “feelings” of the Islamofascist. For example, In 2009 in Belgium  a politician was arrested for insulting Islam after mailing out a leaflet that said “Stop the Islamization of Belgium.” Muslims now make up close to 30% of the population of Brussels, the largest city in Belgium. In Britain in 2004 a man was convicted  of hate speech for having a poster in his window which stated, “Keep Islam out of Britain.” Also in Britain, a Christian couple was arrested and charged with hate speech by a Muslim patron to the hotel that they operated for calling Muhammad a “warlord.” Another British man was convicted for placing drawings that poked fun at  both Christianity and Islam in an airport prayer room, and was given a six-month prison sentence (Try and guess if it was a Muslim or a Christian who pressed charges). Opposition party leaders in both the Netherlands and in France have been charged and tried  for the crime of insulting Islam as well.

In America, because the Islamofascists have yet to find a way to totally subvert the First Amendment, the 56 Islamic states have used the United Nations to attack free speech, with the approval of the Obama administration. In 2011, America voted for UN Resolution 16/18 which was put forth by the OIC, which previous American administrations refused to support. The most problematic phrase being the agreement to adopt “measures to criminalize incitement to imminent violence based on religion or belief .”

The Islamofascists needn’t worry with the Obama administration in power. Obama has directed  his administration to refer to Islamic terrorism as “violent extremism,” and has wiped all of its Dept. of Defense and Dept. of Justice documents of any usage of the words “Islam” and “jihad.” For example, the Dept. of Defense still refers to the Ft. Hood terrorist attack as “workplace violence .”

On Sept. 25, 2012, at the UN, Obama said the following : “The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” If Obama is right, the future will belong to those who wish to force everyone on earth to live under the barbaric, supremacist and degrading Sharia law, and to abandon the freedom, liberty and justice that at least some Americans still cherish so dearly. It is far from irrational to fear that prospect.
