Richard Dawkins and Futile Democracy: Islamophobic Oxymorons
“Of all the offspring of Time, Error is the most ancient, and is so old and familiar an acquaintance, that Truth, when discovered, comes upon most of us like an intruder, and meets the intruder’s welcome.”

Dawkins retracts and apologizes for statements perceived as supporting sexual abuse.
Please enjoy the following 143 page polemic and diatribe against Richard Dawkins (ABUH) and some of his miscreants who ganged up on me on Twitter. I’m taking the fight to the UK. America is too small for me 🙂
I would like to thank the late 2 Pac Shakur for inspiring me as I wrote this work while listening to his words:
“This is what it sounds like when we ride on our enemies…
This work includes a comparative analysis of racism and Islamophobia, secularism and Islam, and Mein Kampf and the Quran. It also challenges the War OF Terrorism’s legitimacy, exposes the castigation of journalist Mehdi Hasan as unfair Islamophobia, and goes to length in augmenting the existence of Islamophobia. Most importantly, it establishes Dawkins and others are Islamophobes and personally curses them in over ten different languages.
Everyday, I turn on my computer and explore the World Wide Web. My ineludible interests as an ESL/English/History teacher, language enthusiast with a command of six (published in three) linguas, and humanitarian/human rights activist in the Middle East (working with refugees for over three years with publications in many mediums); drive me to take the risk of engaging in the privilege of technology. I use the adjective ‘risk’ because not a single vexatious day passes, that despite strenuously attempting to remain taciturn in comments, I am not suddenly confronted with provocative Islamophobic comments scorning and invecting my faith, and sometimes including unprovoked direct personally vitriolic attacks against me and in one instance, my family. After numerous daily encounters on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social networks; I decided enough. I commenced screenshotting over 500 images of evidence for the most criminally worded of this nascent tautology, tracking IP addresses, identifying the personas behind the these socially shielding accounts of electronic courage, and also intentionally and directly quibbling with the Islamophobes to comprehend and test such rambunctious resolve. Surely such ignorance could not be so lascivious as when Bob Craft -who changed his name to “Jack Ass” in 1997- sued the popular TV show Jackass for defaming his good name! I was wrong. There are Tomas Delgados in ‘some’ of us. And therein is where this escapade begins.
On Twitter, I found a Tweet that demonstrated a prevalent racist and apologetic tactic, the outright denial of Islamophobia itself (despite irrefutable and incontrovertible proof of its existence). I replied with innoxious sarcasm, citing statistics proving such phenomena. It was a tweet by a handle Futile Democracy, to Richard Dawkins (ABUH), and the electronic message entailed the former’s blog denying Islamophobia’s existence. The tendentious blog absurdly titled The Cry of Islamophobia and the Right to Blasphemy also defended Dawkins (ABUH) in a recent malaise that ensued over Dawkins’ (ABUH) Islamophobic tweets and consequent stir of words between the aforementioned individuals and journalists Owen Jones and Mehdi Hasan. Nevertheless, as the previous Tweeter disagreement between me and Futile commenced through its painfully irritating and germane exchanges, I became the target of over seven other iniquitous and unknown throng of Tweeter vilipenders, linked to Futile Democracy and Richard Dawkins, simultaneously hurling antagonistic insults and transcendental Atheist dogma at me. I respect pragmatic Atheism and my tolerant Atheist friends, but despise dogma, commonly religious or its occasional anathema. Another interesting peculiarity was Futile Democracy added Dawkins’ Tweeter address to consecutive tweets to me, oddly refusing to disinclude him from our personal banter. And so did the other unknown Tweeter vagrants in their cacophonous techno crescendo of supportive cackles. I just shrugged it off. As Roger Ebert once said, “teaching prejudice to a child is itself a form of bullying. You’ve got to be taught to hate.”
(Futile democracy’s coop)
( Me shrugging it off 🙂 )
It became apparent what was occurring in the swarm of bee stings. I recollected from my feminist cohorts (yes we Muslims have them), the neoteric embroilment which materialized between Rebecca Watson of the SkepChick blog and Dawkins (ABUH). The former was perfectly within her right as a human to express discomfort at what she perceived as an indecent proposal by an unknown man upon her in an elevator, yet Dawkins retorted to her on Tweeter in cruel sarcasm and insensitivity. Likewise the angst supervened as the hyena pack mentality of Dawkins’ supporters, like a spurting Artesian well, came trampling in with shameless agog and attacking her, like other victims, including myself.
Close companions from my past, and associates within the human rights realm know well, I’ve always been the unfortunate pain in their posterior, yet strength of character to walk into the most dangerous of communities and vex the most tyrannical and powerful of thugs (in Fubu attire or exorbitant suits), or bring thespian energy to the most drastic and impassable of predicaments, occasionally shining in success, or settling for the college attempt. This is no exception. Charles Spurgeon’s quote should resonate to Dawkins (ABUH), “sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.”
I thoroughly researched the goulash of disagreements between Owens, Hasan, and Dawkins (ABUH). Initially, I hoped to unearth a misunderstanding therefore focusing solely on summarily refuting Futile’s apologetic attenuation and marginalization of Islamophobia. However, I was offended by Dawkins too. When glancing at quotes listed by Dawkins (ABUH) on Brainy Quote, the perception was benign. When surpassing the silhouette’s surface with further research past the mirage of Dawkin’s (ABUH) intellectual prowess on Brainy Quote, it was an emotional shock and valley of disappointment, akin to the disgust and horror of the excavation underneath Ashkelon’s bathhouse at the southern coast of Israel. Therefore , I prepared a deservingly threshing response to Dawkins (ABUH) with an unequivocal refutation of Dawkin’s defense (ABUH) by Futile and two other apologists, Humanisticus and Nick Cohen. And a tawdry of refutations of Futile’s claim that Islamophobia does not exist. Although Dawkins (ABUH) never directly maligned me, his popular sinecure and irresponsible words heedlessly promulgated the victimization of me, and others. In addition, Dawkins’ (ABUH) direct and indirect associations with prominent Islamophobes such as the English Defense League who regularly reblog or insert his publications into their own sites and works, transgress his, Futile’s, Nick’s, and Humanisticus’ diaphanous dissembling of their anti-Muslim rhetoric as freedom of speech when it is only disingenuous connivery. I would sooner await the end of the world, than the Sanskrit Mayan illusion of sincerity and honesty by the above charlatanic P.T. Barnums and Konrad Kujauses.
The War OF Terrorism has cemented a foundation for the weakest and most demented of society -which includes white and blue collar criminals, inauthentic academic charlatans, pundits of partisan politics from the left and right of the political spectrum, lower self-esteemed social pariahs of homosexuality, feminism, and dogmatic atheism- Islamophobia pervades in many shades within society. Certain ‘humans’ have settled to benefit from the cheap and easy advantages of manipulating the psychological post trauma of 9-11 ,in order to advance their own unpretentious stature supplemented with false hubris, balloon their minds of torpor and inundate their pockets. Such barefaced miscreants would have never been known, their thoughts not worth a pence, had a monopolized televised mass paranoia of an unsupported meretricious nightmare, not indoctrinated such afflicted sheep.
The following pugilistic polemic, tirade, and diatribe pulls no punches, against the preceding depiction’s zenith in a few tiny toon characters. The War OF Terrorism has created too many innocent Muslim patsies who reign in with a thirst for justice, and a few wise minds innately cursed/gifted with a passion for an egalitarian progressive and compassionate humanity know too well. Benjamin Franklin’s cohort and Quaker slavery abolitionist, Benjamin Lay, also knew too well about discreet Western discrimination, “we pretend not to love fighting with carnal weapons, nor to carry swords by our sides, but carry a worse thing in the heart, as will I believe appear by and by…by what I pray and beseech you, dear friends, by the tender mercies of our God, to consider, can be greater hypocrisy, and plainer contradiction.” Western Muslims are not slaves, but the evil which spurned the latter institution has reared its ugly head today. Desmond Tutu – “Racism, xenophobia and unfair discrimination have spawned slavery, when human beings have bought and sold and owned and branded fellow human beings as if they were so many beasts of burden.” Grateful we should be slavery has been forcefully legislated into an abyss, yet still we have a continuity of modern slave-minded snobbish advocates of equally abysmal intelligence today!
The conception of an Islamophobic Scare in Western Society is denied by a scant number of jingoistic sophists who persistently employ apologetic marginalization and denial to attenuate and conceal injustices, assuage victims and enervate critics to silence dissent ; all engendered by the clandestinely indoctrinated dogmatic hallucinations injected in all humans from cradle to grave, which conscience always pulls at its fabric. Islamophobia deniers are no different. Antiquity reports such nasty and misguided, yet annoyingly boisterous obtuse minority. Nothing shockingly incommensurable to WWII Germany and Japan regime supporters.
The War OF Terrorism, Communism, Fascism and more; all entailed a purging of Western society, akin more or less, to ancient witch hunts or an inquisition. Again, nothing has changed! The xenophobic toxin of today is a toupee on the War OF Terrorism comprised of a leviathan coven of religious zealots aggrandizing their own polychristian version of Protestantism or rigid Catholicism with the Inno a Satana or Wiccan hymn, “Muslims don’t believe in the Trinity, well Islam is the devil’s serendipity”,
A small congregation of Atheists sealing a Muslim excommunicative social compact with compromising monotheists while decreeing sacramental harangues of “Christians say Atheism is a curse, but Islam is the worst”,
A Jeffrey Dahmer military unit of conservative alliance of ‘liberty defenders’ from the LGBT community cadence calling “some Christians will allow us to wed, but Muslims want us dead”
A tiny chaste nunnery of presidential feminists pounding their chests over the inequality of Muslim women’s traditional roles in Islamic countries to not publicly urinate while nude calmly knitting in unison “feminism is misandry , but Islam is misogyny”,
Freedom generous military and military staffed law enforcement and Mossad affable intelligence madrasas liberating the Islamic world from another radical ‘ism’ at the end of a barrel as Mao Ze Dong averred while calling the Athan “we killed many Muslims, and now you have freedom”,
Accurate and socially responsible media experiencing sky-rocketing numbers as modern Timothy McVeighs and Jim Joneses are paraded around as representative of the innocuous nature of Islam while the religion of the Maryland and Sandy Hook shooters are treated with ‘equal magnanimity’ as Boston and Woolwich and feverishly publishing headlines titled “the 9-11 attack was by Jihadis, not caused by our foreign policy”,
The tempest movie industry with its inundation of Terrorism television series and films has successfully resurrected the symbolic Messiah of the Cold War against what some claim is ‘religion that teaches to kill’ while Sylvester Stallone declares “live for nothing or die for something” and that killing is as easy as breathing and God will never take that away, and more great poetic canards.
ALL FAKE DISSEMBLING HYPOCRITES!!!
All of the preceding demagogues have failed to grasp they have violated the very same principles which they proclaim to espouse, in the eyes of the higher intellect and sincere hearts of world citizens. Although I am not an abortion proponent, I must aver one admission of these hoodwinks above. They operate in zombie collusion , their virtuous ideals and terrified minds impregnated by sperm containing a mass psycho-somatic syndrome. The monstrous fetus exaggeratingly kicking a real yet much lesser threat tremendously aggrandized by a tautology of the WT disaster- from unaccountable hypnotic encomiums- by the father the WOT.
Several nations of the world are collecting the War OF Terrorism’s Marshall Aid in silence, and nowhere is an abortion clinic, a desperately needed honest critic. Society now has been transfixed into a time portal where we live in imprecise yet similar times to the mass paranoia of the 1950s and 1970s which witnessed McCarthyism and J. Edgar Hoover’s COINTELRO burgeon, to February 19,1942 where Executive Order 9066 was passed by President Roosevelt procuring Japanese American internment, to the slave-rebellion hysteria that permeated southern society, to the Court of Oyer and Terminer during the witch hunt of Salem Massachusetts in 1692, and interpolating further into the Mystic Massacres of the American continent.
Such haplessly misled trajectory has transmogrified modern versions of Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor, Joe McCarthys, Dennis Kearneys, Leland Stanfords, James Whitleys, George Wallaces, Roy Bryants and J. W. Milams, Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile Democracies. And history knows the fruits of such labor of such Benedict Arnolds of humanity, chasing in tittup an exaggerated Manichean and Zoroaster battle of an ideology. A brief and incomplete list in tremulous America alone will suffice:
Dred Scot v. Sandford (1856)
Pace v. Alabama (1883)
The Civil Rights Cases (1883)
Pleggy v. Ferguson (1896)
Cumming v. Richmon (1899)
Ozawa v. United States (1922)
United States v. Thind (1923)
Lum v. Rice (1927)
Hirabayashi v. United States (1943)
Korematsu v. United States (1944)
One would initially opine that America has played the risible role of a valetudinarian against evil ideologies ending with the suffix “ism” during numerous instances in history, had it not been for the long record of innocent humans persistently harmed and families destroyed. Had it not been for the acquisition of resources from those countries which have bowed in prostration to an aggressive Western foreign jingoism that’s record of 70 invasions since its monstrous birth in 1776 is as long as Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge in China. The following is a piercing and analytical, yet honest and logical analysis of a futile attempt by an American puppet from the UK , a quisling to humanity, to dissemble progressivism and freedom of speech wrapped over his gift of Islamophobia.
Spanish-Chupe mantequilla de mi culo:
The Cry of “Islamophobia” & the right to blaspheme.
“This loathsome term [Islamophobia] is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliché conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.“
-Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, Muslim, Ex-Cleric.
The author employs a specious quote by another dubious replica of an intellectually desiccated author as himself. Interestingly enough the abhorrent quote is derived from an African American author with a B.A., a self-proclaimed former radical Muslim sheikh who incredulously believes that the acerbic Islamophobic consensus, despite the REAL evidence in the form of statistics by a multitude of unbiased think tanks, non-Muslim including; is nothing more than a hoax originating from African American influence on the Muslim culture. And that building a mosque anywhere near Ground Zero (the site where the 911 attacks tragically occurred) is a betrayal of America. The chocolate icing on the ‘yellow’ cake is that he also feels entitled as a ‘Muslim American’ to assert that there exists a credible suspicion and justified reaction against all Muslims and mosques in America for their connections to terrorism abroad, and need I continue? Only a moral cretin would believe him, and a peevish and mentally dissonant tyro, publish his quote.
In other words, Abdur Rahman Muhammed is a male patina version of jezebel Brigette Gabriel, Malinche and Judas, an Uncle Tom and Aunt Jemima quisling tryst with equally shady records, who are working hand-in-hand, step-by-step, in a minaret dance of hate propaganda to marginalize the detrimental effects of an inexplicit, but tacitly understood, declaration of war upon an intangible ideology, while simultaneously augmenting the cheap opportunities to criticize Islam and coerce temorous and tractable foreign Muslims to collaborate in a farce war on a apparitional Zoroaster evil. WOW!!! How much worse can one barefacedly become, than proudly stigmatizing one’s own venerable religion as terrorism infested and blasting one’s own race as the culprit for Islamophobia, in exchange for fame and avarice? That is incredulous to authentic Muslims everywhere at best, too transparently stupid for the average of intellect to retort, and unbelievable for the honest of mind and heart. If the quote has a pence of veracity, then it lies with the fact that the marginalization of Islamophobia is a Western leftist/rightist campaign involving inauthentic Muslims as well, with purposes to extinguish any trenchant critical thought upon the anemic legitimacy of the War OF Terrorism. Brigitte Gabriel, Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, Richard Dawkins, Futile Democracy, and other garrulous misanthropes like them are a pubic hair short from the genital position of former US president George Bush, yet closer than the likes of a Johannes Weyer, certainly much less than loathsome. All of the aforementioned diffident turncoats and rabid war drummers should have been immediately thrown in the trash, and the stork fed and clothed instead.
The controversial yet honest truth is that the War OF Terrorism is another detached ‘incident’ amongst a linear historical timeline with the absence of causation and responsibility in jingoistic Western policies since the onset for the scramble of Africa to former US President McKinley, which silently continues to wreak horrendous havoc upon the poor majority of the 3rd world. The haves and have nots, the colonized and the colonizers, the strong and the weak, and more divisive imperialism propped up by Kipling/Darwin/Manifest false fecal Western hubris recorded in the tragic annals of history. Such translucent guile cannot escape the functional notice of an average human above the australopithecines stage of the hominoid sequence that the West, America and the UK with some other European countries, have demonstrated a persistent pattern of modern wars on Fascism and Communism and Terrorism and… possibly in the future, a futile false flag proxy war against Sinoism or Persianism. The West – Republicanism, Democracy, Secularism, cannot survive without the barbarian as in the lucid poem “Waiting for the Barbarian” by CV Cavafy.
How many innocent humans have been discreetly and openly persecuted within Western society for a recurrent and mirror topoi example of psychosomatic terror to preserve the neo-Roman avarice’s ‘City on a Hill’ during the aforementioned wars on an unseen ideology? There is no way that I would not rather tolerate wiping my posterior with a purple colored thorned tunic than not see its modern equivalent repetitively sterilize humanity in the 3rd world with its Don Quixote soap opera artifice! Such indiscriminate and xenophobic discrimination, faultless criticism, and spurts of occasional violence is not non-normative. On the contrary, it precludes modern history and its causation is a human phenomena in all cultures and nations. As Antonio Tabucchi stated, “xenophobia manifests itself especially against civilizations and cultures that are weak because they lack economic resources, means of subsistence, or land. So nomadic people are the first targets of this kind of aggression.” An honorable person cannot refute the preceding. If he or she tried to replace history with a troglodyte mistress, it would be too overt.
Therefore, Dawkins’ (ABUH) and Futile’s credibility is similar to that of a momentous love story with slightly more passion than a dirty prostitute who has vigorously opened her cadaverous snatch after briskly hopping onto a hotel bed, while demonstrating the esteem of a braggart by demanding an exorbitant price for her virginity! Vain claims by Futile Democracy and Dawkins (ABUH) to deny Islamophobia seem tenuous and suspicious. Not implicating either or both as a pundit for Western government propaganda, directly. My only riposte to Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) is, “so a thought crossed your mind! Must have been a long and lonely journey.”
Futile Democracy posited:
“As someone who considers himself to be on the centre-left of the political spectrum, I am increasingly unnerved by creeping rhetoric on the left that seems to shut down debate, by silencing discussion with fallacy and insult. This isn’t the secular, liberal, discussion based democratic left that I believe in. Challenging authoritarian ideas and concepts – be them political or religious, with critique and satire, with criticism and poking fun – should be considered uncompromisable and absolutely necessary.”
I’m inclined not to naively believe a cryptic person who generously grants his personal ‘insults’ to innocent and guilty followers of religious dogma alike, while absconding from reaping any in return, and prevaricating on his or her opaque intentions and gossamer allegiances. It is prominent that the first sentence in the paragraph above, absent the attestation of one’s alliances, delineates whom exactly is the target. Very apparent! If not, the second sentence is a dead give-away!! It is an admonishing yet childish demand for attention and a moral coquette’s attempt to not cadge, but coerce support from constituents of a leftist movement, with possible perfidy as a tacit warning. Simplified, it says, “I will no longer be a part of the left if you don’t agree with me!” Honesty responds, “good riddens!” Those who employ such deceit provoke the query by ‘real’ academics and authors, “why do you choose to be the appearance of an envelope without an address on it?” Where is the destination and what is the purpose? Be blunt about it!
I intervene with beneficial advice for the preceding echelons, don’t waste a shrunken modicum of a second disdaining the floundering pen name and cacophonous and circuitous whines of a Futile Democracy, one that is unable to even concentrate the datum from his intelligence to suffice the data necessary for a Nash’s equilibrium against opponents, much less the memory storage capability needed for usage in communicating to a computer that the enter key has been pressed! Such uninnovative and ephemeral miscreants almost always use mocking language as a crutch of encouraging support, like a swig of vodka courage, rather than legitimate substance of any venerable ingredient in the human will, rationality, or morale. Futile has all the vices and none of the virtues of ‘real’ authors, and quite possibly an experimental chimpanzee as well 🙂 Perhaps Pope Francis I struck the bull’s-eye when he once stated, “an example I often use to illustrate the reality of vanity, is this: look at the peacock; it’s beautiful if you look at it from the front. But if you look at it from behind, you discover the truth… Whoever gives in to such self-absorbed vanity has huge misery hiding inside them.”
I have no quarrel with challenging authoritarian concepts with an assortment of methods including insults, and targeting any identity in that noble pursuit. However, normally my rhetoric doesn’t start with insults , unlike Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile bampot. Nevertheless, I take as gospel pure freedom, I support an atheist over a religious zealot or a religious constituent over an atheist zealot, at any moment, without a feint thought of hesitation. The following would depict my honest and passionate internal faculties of the mind, heart, and soul. I publish what I contrive, until my last gasp of breath, and if there exists reprimands, then aggressively suplex and tombstone piledriver me in a coffin accompanied with vagrant curses, hog-spit upon me, fiercely pummel the iron nails to seal my fate with an icicled psychopathic stare, and bury me quickly into suffocation; before I gladly smile, and offend Western imperial hypocrisy several times again! I live free, and only God above has possessive rights to my mind, I am his property, his slave alone. I am a proud Muslim, a human, a constituent of a Collective Consciousness, and as Diogenes would assert, a citizen of the world first!
Humanity and God are not antithetical aberrations as Futile berk and Dawkins (ABUH) absurdly and preposterously suppose. A lesson America forgot despite the preceding nation’s antiquated ‘human rights’ revolution. Antecedents of the Arab Spring. One may control my physical body and my deep solicitous expressions, but ultimately my deepest thoughts, the facsimile expressions of God, and liberating freedom with uncorrupted emotions of happiness and love; do not belong to a despot nor a tyrannical country nor omnipotent dogma (religious or atheist)…they belong to a single creator. As Lysander Spooner stated, “a man’s natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government.”
However, unlike Futile Democracy and Dawkins (ABUH), my deep passion for freedom wisely reminds me to refrain from mimicking the unruly juvenile delinquents within them. The type with disguised racism that repetitively chants Liberty’s name in a show of bravado, as if climaxing with a venal prostitute. Then afterwards in the nearest public park, the above infants in the name of Liberty calmly step with an affable smile up to a precious carriage beside an unsuspecting meek mother who is peacefully stroking her nurturing hand on top- guarding her most precious possession- and slowly state feigning sincerity, “Madame, your infant”-while raising both the pitch and speed to the predicate of their entreaty-” is so ####### ugly!” Then both Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) quickly stumble, synchronously fleeing to their parents’ home with loud rambunctious laughter, hoping a puppy’s fleeting lust of interim attention and patting recognition may be the reward from their insincere dog treat administering adolescent minded cohorts. Their perverted Liberty maintained! Though humorous to some, honorable Liberty should entail a beneficial and positive result in its application. I believe it to be more than tweeting agitating and purposeless insults at those of various religious denominations, bullying victims into silence. Nelson Mandella once said, “to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
Futile musketeer and Dawkins (ABUH) have a virulent antipathy toward religion, and with it, many generalizations and false assumptions. It is exigent to mention an obvious yet often omitted axiom, that the most monumental establishments of the freedom Futile berk and Dawkins (ABUH) so abuse, and which passionately inspired other beautiful cultures to follow its torch carrying globalization, were wise nations whose declatory pillars were built upon principles ascertained on the foundation of undogmatic religion, from Aristotle and Plato of ancient Greece to Averroes’ contribution to Europe to John Locke and Thomas Paine of Europe to Thomas Jefferson of America to Maximilien de Robespierre of France and more. In fact, despite myth excogitated from hyperboles by benighted atheists; the majority of the founding fathers of America and England and Europe never outright rejected religion nor rebuked a creator’s existence with the preposterous insinuation that tangible objects are extracted from nothing. In contrast, they metamorphosed religion upon their honest, logical, and rational discretion; boldly tossing and compromisingly accepting tents into their own practical middle line. Such evidence need no extraneous investigation other than that venerable single echo of its quintessence, “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Although we frightengly glance at numerous examples in the dark blood-stained pages within history of the diametric extreme of undogmatic religion’s ghastly toll on humans, such real devious culprits for such inhumanity instead of religion alone, are clearly identifiable, then and now. They comprise of dogma entailing:
The total blind devotion to regurgitating verbose and often esoteric knowledge rather than applying a ideology’s more salient positive credos.
Not simplifying such dogma for the larger audience’s comprehension out of the greedy lust for controlling the possession of this knowledge and gate-keeping criticism to protect its sanctity and being en-masse unreasonable in decoding such tenets according to the contextual historical circumstances it was written and applying it in accord to the current times.
Confusing wisdom as limited memorization and empty repetitive ritual rather than using such doctrine as altruistically positive contributions to humankind
And placing deifying traits of a demigod to clerics and priests and other humans rather than valuing the worth of the simple average human.
These traits were the same rebuked in the Protestant Reformation. Attributes found in religious and secular fundamentalism alike. And now, such above characteristics can be found in the demagogues’ and pundits’ words of Muslim extremism and those secular extremists lauding Capitalism and Democracy and Monarchy! The former in the name of religious dogma and the latter which has significantly claimed many more innocent victims in history, in the name of secular dogma. We would be wise to recollect history reveals dictators and despots shrouded in secular and religious zeal garments! As Anis Nin stated, “when we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.” Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile are guilty of castigating and impugning that which they are formulating in the atheist movement, the same dogmatic traits as above.
Another determinant is the narcissistic and stoic zealotry of believing one’s beliefs as inscrutable or superior and the rash impudence of expressing an absence of tolerance nor compassion for the human rights of non-followers of a belief system. “It is the certainty that they possess the truth that makes men cruel,” says Anatole France. A modern example of the preceding, evil Muslim terrorists versus the compassion of Cyrus the Great’s liberating invading armies, demonstrate such droll thinking. The former – religious dogma- attempting to conquer the world according to Islamophobes while fighting in their home nations while the latter liberating as opposed to conquering the world – secular dogma- by invading many nations. We all know which side of the funambulism Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile walk upon above. The aforementioned, secular and religious zealotry, describe the contemporary Peter the Hermits and Pope Urban IIs of old and of today, of religion and of secularism. And we have them in atheism as well unfortunately.
Yet hark, dogma and zealotry combined describe fundamentalism which in itself is benignly pain stakingly annoying and infrequently dangerous, yet innocuous in comprehensiveness. There is another critical ingredient missing, the arena of the aristocrats, politics – vis a vis avarice- which needs no diminutive explanation as the capricious philandering father and philanthroper of all bastardly inhumanities! Politics is the science and art of manipulating religious, racial, atheist, secular, or any other identity to accumulate power and distribute resources. As Plato put it pointly, “one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”
Today, we have the modern Alexius Comnenuses and Hugh I of Vermandoises prostituting and dissembling the rhetoric of religion and secularism derived from their own gluttony and rapacity for fame, wealth, and power. And tragically, as the Seljuk Turk’s invasion precipitated the proliferation of dogma and religious zealotry to be the instruments of charlatanic politicians to spark the horrendous first Crusade, the 9-11 World Trade Tower attacks have sparked the vernacular of secularism – Freedom and Democracy- and the secular Crusade by the UK and America in the Middle East. And cataclysmically, the invasions have wreaked havoc on uncountable silenced innocent human refugees of war, with Crusader like religious and secular coagulated theatrics by the Neros of the War of Terrorism (WOT) now!! Human suffering, the lost realistic message of history suffocated by religious and secular zealotry with weapons. When the prior ingredients -dogma, zealotry, avarice- are coagulated with any system of control (politics), then we have the worst quivering inducing tragedies of humankind, and this includes no quittance for the ideology of the minority of extremist Muslims in the Middle East now, nor the more powerful imperialistic ideologies of secular Capitalism or Democracy or Monarchy which is now playing chess with the integrity of Muslim nations and cultures. And history does not reprieve other ideologies like Atheism for cranking the gears of the imperialistic and political machinery either.
May I query what atheist nations exist today that have revoked dogma and avarice and zealotry to ensure human freedoms and rights? China? Russia? North Korea? Perhaps it may be possible and I welcome such a chance as what is good for humanity is good for all, but as of now, religion remains freedom’s greatest benefactor. If atheists, Chinese, North Koreans, and Russians are offended from my thoughts, then I say that I sincerely hope my candor sparks the earnest development of the perfect refutation of the preceding claim, for I would be its first and most devoted supporter. Phan Boi Chau, Ho Chi Minh, and Vo Nguyen Giap knew the value of propaganda and a belief system over the military, and humanity over technology! But unfortunately as it stands, there are reasons why prior nations shied away from a Cult of Reason like during the French Revolution, the rebuttal may in fact lay in Francis Bacon’s words, “a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion.”
Initially, one may curiously query what is the beef? I appear to be on the same side as Futile Democracy and Dawkins (ABUH)! However, I aggressively retort with the inquiry, what is the purpose of both berks’ sardonic demands for feckless and biting freedom of expression scabbard (and Islamophobes like them)? The answer is enmeshed in the gossamer fact that Islamophobia is a basic human reaction to the lethal injection of intoxicating dogma from Western secular Crusader propaganda. This propaganda’s narrative is that because the Middle East is not ‘modernized’ or ‘secular enough’ like the West, a few fundamentalists – never mind every religion has fundamentalists- have interpreted the major predominant religion of the region (Islam) into violence and have decided to commit suicide by wreaking false flag havoc on the pillars of the strongest nations in the world which comprise of the West. It was the same ploy used against African American slaves who rebelled against slavery in America, corrupted religion and fanatical slaves were the only ones who risked their lives to stand against the oppression of slavery according to the aristocratic slave-owner white class! Such emetic and replicated farce in the WOT is also enabled by the ‘generous philanthropy’ of the white modern corporate/banking aristocrats -in consequence to avarice- who ‘oil’ the zealotry and dangerous hubris of the wheels of the political left/right George Creel machines of today, augmenting the War OF Terrorism’s legitimacy while synchronously silencing rational dissent. And remaining silent about one of the largest glaring affronts to Democracy and secularism in the Middle East, Israel. And also coercing the moderate Muslims to collaborate with imperialism. Cheap labor and oil in exchange for humanity while blaming Islam and moderate Muslims for those who fight such an inhuman scheme! And that is precisely what Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) sauntering remarks and stances-intentional or unintentional-connivingly perform. They are tools of secular imperialism!! They marginalize Islamophobia vis-a-vis inquisition and McCarthyism, by stigmatizing this historically recurrent human enigmatic axiom of human xenophobia as an imaginary Peter Pan tale. Islamophobia and xenophobia are NOT real -a liberal invention-according to them, despite history recording this human behavior throughout the annals of time!
Worse, Futile idiot and Dawkins (ABUH) corrupt and exploit the positive feats of past salutary progressives who fought on behest of equality between minority and majority, by claiming Islamophobia’s sole impetus is to discreetly stifle freedom of expression. Nauseating!! I hate the villain Thomas Carlyle for such bigoted woks as Occasional Discourse on the Negro Question, but I have more respect for a delusional author as him, than closet mongrel poltroons hiding under progressivism, liberalism, atheism!! None of the preceding ideologies have anything to do with such miscreants. I don’t have a dispute with constructive criticism of Islam (as many of my Muslim cohorts would testify) or even siding with any human against an Islamic zealot, I have consternation with cruelly and callously silencing the innocent marginalized victims of this cockamamie War OF Terrorism. I have lived with refugees for 5 years in the ME, I know of their suffering well. Too many tears have dried on my aging cheek without justice by the responsible West or enough recognition in Western media.
Thus I have contention with insincere atheists! The Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile berks make loud obnoxious splashes while indulging in an enjoyable attention grasping swim in the ocean of confusing currents of multiple media injected secular identities (liberal, atheist, conservative, republican, etc.), yet still originating from the same continental coast from whence invasions in the ME and 3rd world originate, the vast immeasurable Atlantic of Western ignorance and intolerance. I aver it is a contradiction in regards to both’s bemoans of the left stifling criticism of thought by insult, when this is primarily what they dish out daily to their religious victims! Those bullhorns that deny Islamophobia are hiding under the proud guile of non-conformity, and obviously possess the family tree lineage to a cactus. So many pricks! My sullen disappointment is that out of 100,000 sperm, Futile was not so futile 😦 Yet amazingly Dawkins (ABUH) has proven evolution runs in more than one direction.
Futile berk has an equivocal misunderstanding of the historical significance, sacrifices, and purposes of past great muckrakers and progressive reformers. The revered heroes and heroines of the art of exposing and reforming society who became a canker voice of irritation for those who wielded hedonistic and overwhelming power irresponsibly to the detriment of the hapless and defenseless people. And when such a conflict involved interests of denominational portions of society instead of robber barons, the venerable and great ones chose to side with the weaker and disenfranchised and targeted minority.
Thomas Nast printed satirical cartoons to crush William Tweed, Thoreau averred the majority only has power because of strength rather than wisdom, Jefferson believed in the protection of the religious minority, Helen Hunt Jackson decried the languishing dilemma of Native Americans on behest of her own nation’s policies, Upton Sinclair whistle blowed upon sanitationary conditions of factories, Ida B. Wells condemned lynching and Jim Crow Laws, William Lloyd Garrison burned the US constitution and Benjamin Lay stabbed a Bible with a cow’s heart inside of it in a church to protest abolition, Rachel Carson wrote about the protection of nature, and many more committed seemingly imprudent and suicidal acts to raise awareness to just causes. Many sacrificed careers, risked danger to their own welfare, persevered against public and government reprimands, and raised their voices as madmen.
Why? I can confidently assure you with 100 percent certainty, it wasn’t to manipulate and prostitute freedom of expression so that a persecuted and discriminated religious minority such as Muslims whom are victims of Western mass paranoia and xenophobia and imperialism, could be tormented further or silently marginalized! Compassion, understanding, and a love of equality and justice were qualities of the aforementioned civil rights combatants. As Pete Early once stated about the term muckraker coined by Teddy Roosevelt, “I think that some of the greatest muckrakers and some of the greatest investigative journalists of all time had strong feelings about civil rights. There is a role for the journalist-advocate. And as long as you play your cards on the table, I think that’s a role that we should allow.”
Islamophobia defined and Defense of Owen Jones:
Arabic-Air il’e yeba’atak.
Futile Democracy posited:
To highlight this, I got thinking about a recent online “debate” between Owen Jones and Richard Dawkins. Jones made quite clear in a recently reposted article in the Independent from 2012, that he stands firm on the side of Mehdi Hasan when it comes to what they term “Islamophobia“. This was reposted after Hassan’s spat with Richard Dawkins on Twitter yesterday.
– An ill-judged, and inflammatory choice of words [Dawkins comment that “All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.”], no doubt. Interestingly, Dawkins has since made an apology and clarification. But I think Owen Jones is being curiously hypocritical, and himself guilty of fanning the flames of an undefined “Islamophobia” that he seems so keen to call out at every possible opportunity.
Jones’s hypocrisy takes on two forms; firstly Jones does not react with equal anger at any negative mention of other religions or religious figures. And secondly, he jumps to the unquestioning defense of Mehdi Hasan, despite Hassan’s equally disparaging remarks in the past, aimed at all non-believers. There is a distinct air of hypocrisy about Jones on this, but even more so with Hasan. Dawkins went on a similar attack against Mitt Romney in the run up to the 2012 US Election, and his Mormonism. – And yet, there remained an eerie silence from Owen Jones and Mehdi Hasan on this. No cries of “Mormonophobia“. Similarly, as Trey Parker and Matt Stone released “The Book of Mormon“; a mockery of Mormonism, in musical form, Owen Jones registered no disgust. Apparently Mormonism is fair game. Islam though, we must never mention Islam negatively.
I admit I am thinking as well, about the aforementioned debate Futile bollocks cited, between Owen Jones and Richard Dawkins. In all integrity, I had no choice as Futile bollocks began spouting Islamophobic vagary in childish hopes of addictive attention, vexing me in the process while simultaneously ‘fanning the flames above’ as justification for his salmagundi sham chicanery vis-a-vis, dogma and zealous bigotry with the lipstick and dress of pragmatic atheism. I confess, he has the quorum of intelligence to type a blog, but nothing more! Normally, I savor an ascetic life of a hermit gladly while striving to create tiny microcosms of the positive change I wish to see in the volatile and apathetic world. And up to this point, successfully evading the ignorant superficial and materialistic ingrates who form images on a wall beside the kindled candle of the media in the realm of Plato’s Cave allegory. However, Futile bollocks brought such adolescent and invective fu##ery to my harmonious and amicable cave while I was calmly hibernating!! Without accord, I slowly pawed myself out of the quiet cave venturing to the only destination such a snobbering and cadging lower hominoid as Futile bollocks is regularly invited by all fortunate to meet him, outside. After glancing at Futile bollocks’s literary and quotidian clamor, I wished my hibernation had been a coma instead. In consequence, as the Muslim Benedict Arnold Futile bollocks quoted in his premature blog, I feel entitled in volunteering my honest valediction. It is not a choice to be docile anymore!
I commend with laudatory respect, a valorous Owen Jones, for perceptively understanding, honorably embracing, and boldly fighting against the obvious axiom in regards to an adverse behavioral human phenomena of volatile xenophobia that history records. His depth in writing is positively beneficial beyond dogma or zealotry for the classic under dogs of the times, excitingly pugilistic in unapologetically refraining from pulling variegated punches toward dawdling doctrinaire vagrants that deserve a KO, and most importantly; he writes from the heart, a sure indication of the absence of avarice. In addition, Socialism commands a reverence from me in such persistently marginalized yet enormous contributors for humanity such as A. Philip Randolph, Eugene Debs, William Patterson, and more. And because Socialism is a survivor of unwarranted and unprovoked Western governmental and social persecution! In regards to his personal attributes, I admire his unconquerable pride and defiance, and love his unabashed personality despite limited mental judgments upon his persona. I love the fights he instinctively raises his fingertips toward his laptop to engage, with surface to keyboard strikes against nasty bellicose and anencephalic foes!
In Futile bugger’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) – and Islamophobes like them- vapid world of an archaic version of the Lord of the Rings, their vaunted assumption is most likely that
Muslims furiously stone hijabless women and homosexuals and oppress their 700 Sabaen virgin wives and 300 belly dancing concubines while intending to discreetly foot fetish vellicate the succulent toes of white women or play Catholic priest with unsuspecting altar boys.
Are intellectually inferior to whites by proof of cranium sizes.
More hypocritically religious than the Pat Robertsons and Jim Bakkers and Robert Tiltons.
Are secretly connected to supporting the vanguard terrorism of the National Liberation Front of Tripura or the Klu Klux Klan and Army of God in America or the National Socialist Council of Nagaland or the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda.
Are assertively fanatical and potentially dangerous in spreading fundamental interpretations of religion more than William Bell Riley or Lewis Sperry Chafer or a Southern Baptist.
We devilishly twist the end of our foot long beards with manseff residue dreaming of how many “harams” to add to the lyrics of the song “Mujahid’s Paradise” after rapper Coolio’s musical creation!
And many times again, I correct the pompous Futile Pork Democracy and chimp Dawkins (ABUH) along with other Islamophobes with the declaration that all humans have inalienable rights because Islam without dogma, zealotry, and avarice is beautiful 🙂 Futile bugger and chimp Dawkins (ABUH) should follow step instead of irritating humanity with ‘their’ form of Atheism. In their twisted world chased by low self esteem zombies and mentally challenged paparazzi as the miscreants of the Jawa Report, I am a Muslim terrorist strapped with explosives as all Muslims, so I feel it merited to reply that if brains were TNT, Futile bugger and the Chimp (ABUH) would be incapable of blowing their own elongated Pinocchio noses!
My stance toward Dawkins (ABUH) is not completely one-sided, extremely interesting that he is a self proclaimed humanitarian that refuses to grant oxygen to other humans yet cries over honey. I may say that I have kept up with Dawkins’ life like a few others. I respect the fact he was birthed in Africa and pray he unites the African continent as some Western nations. I admire his work on The ‘Selfish’ Gene. I concur with him that one needs no religion to have morality, and that one does not even have to be unlike Dawkins, a human to possess morality (Dawkins has admitted on film that he and everyone else are evolved apes).
However, I find a glaring fault in Dawkin’s ignorance and omission of the fact that religion occasionally augments or engenders a transformation to morality in so many across the world. Is Dawkins (ABUH) oblivious and obtuse to Nebuchadnezzar, Paul of Taurus, Malcolm X, Whitney Houston, etc? I also find it shockingly delusional and sullenly silly to depict one’s entire intellectual accolades with verbigerative postulations that climax into the dramatic revelation that “something comes from nothing.” He is once again hypocritical when claiming a biased Atheist disposition when forming his antipathy toward monotheistic religions, persistently inveighing Islam more, while admitting on record that he is sympathetic for the Anglican Church and depicting himself as a cultural Christian. Moreover, I feel Dawkins’ refutation against allegations that he is a fundamental Atheist by avowing that he does not fly planes into buildings (clearly insinuating Muslims) is both fallacious and in the dark. Fallacious because a copious amount of fundamental Muslims across the globe don’t perform such hostilities.
Futile bummer and Dawkins (ABUH) both repeat the vertiginous false assumption that fundamentalism equates into extremist acts, and realistically, it doesn’t. One only needs to turn on the television or Google Dr. Zair Naik, Yusuf Estes, and more to glance at fundamental Muslims who condemn the violence by religious and secular extremists . Dawkins is also in the dark because he is confusing an act committed in defiance of unjust Western foreign policies as religion, in contempt of primary sources of evidence and logic. Such lack of factual research in declaring hyperboles as truths while augmenting the verisimilitude of such flaccid theorems via a multitude of faddish platitudes, simultaneously highlight and deteriorates the mind to that of a child, yet I concede, is still better than that of an ape-Dawkins (ABUH).
It seems Dawkins (ABUH) scratches like an itching sapient canine yelping ‘religion causes conflict’ when in veritable fact, he is a Twitter flea himself. It is also apparent the discrepancy of his sacrosanct claim that Islam is misogynist, yet he has already been through three sacrilegious divorces. While ordinary humans live and learn, the former is ample enough for Dawkins (ABUH). Furthermore, I believe that Dawkins’ (ABUH) participation in anti-Vietnam War activities were not so altruistically candid since now he is a propaganda mouthpiece of the War OF Terrorism (WOT). One must be a hypocrite to blast former president George Bush’s decisions in the WOT yet remain a cheerleader for the co-architect of the same scheme, Tony Blair . Did Dawkins (ABUH) initially despise the vignette by Bush but was swayed by the clarification of the words by the WOT epic’s co-author, Blair? Or is it that lambasting American foreign policy conveniently allows some vestige of not being labeled a traitor to one’s own nation? Or was compassion for human life and exerting one’s principles reserved for Communism only? I also cannot, as a logical and honest researcher, support anyone’s assumptions that skips the rational step of amalgamating knowledge from all three holy texts to discern the truth, by suddenly arriving at the leaping conclusion all three are false without thoroughly perusing them.
The above incongruities in Dawkins’ (ABU) character , siphoned off by previous refutations of his logic, compel the auspices of higher intellect surpassing chimps to wonder at the impetus behind Dawkins’ (ABUH) dubious yet repetitive vitiations against Islam. I think blogger Martin Iqbal hits the Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile bummer targets, “such frequent rabble rousing against Muslim nations and cultures (while ignoring far greater human rights abuses carried out by ‘enlightened’ Western nations) constitutes a trend amongst atheists, even amongst ex-Muslims who are eagerly touted and re-tweeted by Dawkins and his over 600,000 Twitter followers…Yes ‘Muslim’ terrorists and extremists exist, but it is wrong to characterize a miniscule minority as being representative of the wider group. And let us be honest: there are far more non-Muslim terrorists than Muslim ones, and the piles of skeletons in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria attest to this.”
I outright challenge the nationalist votaries Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile bugger, if they do have vivid brain cells and viscous honor, to embrace the former of Buddha’s advice, “there are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” My summons, address the legitimacy on the WOT! Address the crux of Middle Eastern animosity toward the West and the determinant of Western foreign policies in the Middle East, Israel. I doubt ability or principle will be of ample conduit for either to arrive at my destination though. I don’t have animosity toward Futile bugger and Dawkins (ABUH) because they hate Islam, I rebuke them because I cherish multi-cultural and tolerant Americans and Brits. If we did in fact spring from apes as both purport, the former and latter did not leap far enough.
I sincerely declare that I don’t necessarily hate such duplicitous and sanctimonious Islamophobes who support the WOT, but I wouldn’t waste my glass of water extinguishing their self immolation.
I hope my comments have given another reason for the sacerdotal Dawkins (ABUH) to be frightful of Muslim journalists while simultaneously fulfilling his own quote, “you do not have to be reticent in what you say. You do not have to look around and say, ‘I hope I am not offending anyone’. You can pretty much speak your mind now in a way that you could not 50 years ago.” And addressing Dawkins’ recent comment upon Muslims not winning the Nobel Peace Prize, “all the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge.” I am unconvinced such a reward is meaningfully peaceful, and often ‘a nobody’ literally is a recipient.
Futile divvy posited that Dawkins (ABUH) is sincerely remorseful for his deprecation about the Nobel Peace Prize and Muslims above. I demur! According to Jai Singh, Dawkins links his website to Islamophobe centaur half human- the rest donkey- Robert Spencer ,who is infamously affiliated with anti-Muslim malefactors such as Dr. Rusty Mut and his fleas at My Pet Jawa, the Investigative Project on Terrorism, and other charlatans of the WOT. In fact, Spencer and other infamous Islamophobes immediately defended Dawkins (ABUH) when criticized by the appalled public for his barefaced callous Islamophobic maelstroms on Twitter. In addition, Dawkins (ABUH) regularly shares or re-publishes anti-Muslim works and has made repeated derogatory remarks attacking Muslims with similarities to the maleficent messages shared by the English Defense League. Also, like the counter-terrorism mountebank phony Evan Kohlmann who ludicrously claims commonplace words like ‘ice cream’ and ‘going to the beach’ and ‘getting married’ are secret code for terrorism, Dawkins equally posits that the words ‘communities’ and ‘multi-culturalism’ are code for Islamic extremism. I forewarn others that if one were to climb the former or latter’s salubrious ego and leaped to their inchoate intelligence, it would be suicide. Nevertheless, regardless of what people feel about the latter, Jesus still loves Dawkins. Or an ape does.
I also retort to Futile divvy’s claim that Islamophobia is undefined with the sincere remark that it’s better to let someone think you are an idiot, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Such a comment could only derive from such length of stupidity that could wrap around the world twice and tie! Nevertheless, I proceed with a general definition and will return to the 1991 Runnymede Trust Report’s lexicon in following paragraphs. Islamophobia is generally defined as harmful or insulting actions, practices or beliefs, or social or political systems that are based in views that see the human species to be divided into religious categories with inadaptable shared traits, abilities, or qualities, such as personality, intellect, morality, or other cultural behavioral characteristics, and especially the belief that Islam and Muslims can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior or more dangerous to others, or that members of different religions should be treated differently. A perfunctory search on Google can allay Futile divvy’s literary mechanical cliché disguised as an innocent and unconscionable query.
Furthermore, Futile divvy claimed that Owens uses the term Islamophobia at ‘every possible opportunity.’ That’s a hyperbole! Out of 100 articles for the Independent, Owen used the term in a total of three publications, two of which pertained to Dawkins (ABUH). Can Futile divvy count? I would like to help him out, but my first question would honestly be “which way did he come in?”
Futile eejit also lubrubiously asserts that Owen Jones is a hypocrite in consequence of condemning Islamophobia while simultaneously allowing Mehdi Hasan to voice intolerant criticisms of non-religious followers and challenging the legitimacy of the WOT. Poppycock!! Such an unsupported and blatant malignant lie is more than suspicious for bias, it absolutely warrants an IQ examination to be administered to Futile eejit in expectation of a undeniably profound score of 20 to 25. It would also be satisfactory to inspect Futile eejit’s birth certificate to refute or sustain allegations that it is an apology from Durex.
Personally I concur with Mehdi Hassan’s statements about Western jingoistic policies aimed at Iran and foolhardily implemented against Iraq. In concerns to the latter, after working and living with refugees for 5 continuous years, I can only aver with precaution as to the accuracy of my words, that the Iraq refugee conundrum is a largely marginalized humanitarian disaster which the West persists in ignoring as its responsibility. As a human (which both Futile and Dawkins know nothing about), my eyes through ‘experience’ became ‘wide open’ after viewing first-hand the tragic reality of their languishing tribulations, and as a patriotic American, disgusted at chauvinistically insensitive and ignorantly clueless eejits like Futile!! Futile eejit and Dawkins (ABUH) are the diametric breathing impersonations of Darrow’s words upon patriotism and the exact match for Voltaire’s.
“True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.”
“It is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind.”
Furthermore, Futile eejit refuses to grant fair observations of the facts. For example, Mehdi Hasan equally criticizes Muslims! Hasan has published articles castigating those who justify suicide bombing with Islam, reprobated the Muslim idiots who support the death penalty for apostasy, scolded British Muslims for being more concerned with foreign affairs than British politics, and openly bashed anti-Semitism within the British Muslim community. I call that moderate and unbiased! Dawkins (ABUH) who previously insulted Hasan for stating that he believed that the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) flew to heaven (a principle of Islamic dogma),maligned Mehdi Hasan not because Hassan is an intolerant Muslim extremist or fundamentalist, he did so because Dawkins (ABUH) is an Atheist extremist.
In the demented and unrealistic small minds of Futile eejit and Dawkins (ABUH), there is little room to comprehend the demarcations between fundamentalists, moderates that accept dogma, and extremism. Much less obnoxious bigotry and intolerance! Hassan refused to challenge the dogma of his religion, this does not naturally equate into fundamentalism or extremism! One can be a Muslim or any other adherent to a belief system (religious or secular), without embracing the former or latter dispositions of bigotry – it’s called being reasonable and tolerant – moderate. After Futile eejit’s and Dawkin’s (ABUH) sickening and pathetic wailing encomiums of their Islamic bigotry concealed as the equal right to insult all religions, one can only conclude that both must have a very low opinion of people, if they think humans are their equals.
Owen Jones and other normally cognitive functioning humans recognize what some fail to comprehend. A Western Muslim or Arab journalist, such as Mehdi Hasan, who criticizes Muslims and Islam just as he honestly does with detrimental Western foreign policy, usually should be lauded as a moderate and objectively fair journalist. A liberal! Such was the honorable behavior of prior progressive journalists as Charles Mohr, Harrison Salisbury, Bernard Fall, John Pilger, Seymour Hersh, and more. However, in the eyes of Islamophobes, Arabs or Muslims challenging the War OF Terrorism (WOT) is the equivalent of extremism. They want moderate Muslims to sacrifice their lives fighting enemies of the West with unquestionable vigor and brazen stupidity. Such bigots as Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile ASS sincerely believe in the superiority of their race and Western culture that the Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas of Islam/Arabs should destroy their own culture, people, nations, and religion at the callous ignition of terrifying Western criticism. They themselves must constrict the labeling of ‘liberal’ or ‘moderate’ upon their own discretion. They desire a bacchanal of charlatanic Brigette Gabriels, Abdur-Rahman Muhammads, Zuhdi Jassers, or ‘any’ Muslim or Arab that will play the sick gambit of justifying the continuous disenfranchisement, discrimination, and violence upon Muslims on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, so the less perspicacious Westerner can avoid questioning the legitimacy and prudence of such domestic and foreign policies spawned by the WOT.
And this is the sad state of affairs in the West today against Muslims. We are tip-toeing on crackers hoping to not awaken the unfair and unsupported criticism of obnoxious bigots for any sound a stethoscope may reveal. Shouldn’t Islamophobes, claiming Al Qaeda/ISIS is a global threat, discover the mouthpieces of that organization instead!? If such Peter Pan tales of a significant threat are to be found. 13 years of war by the West in the Middle East to destroy a tiny group of Arab rednecks on camels and now something larger and more terrifying , something worse, ISIS. Nay! As human behavior precludes, it is far easier to attack the weaker, and much more convenient to victimize those closer to one’s self, than search for the real enemy abroad. It’s called cowardice. And it is proliferating in the West.
I witnessed, as a Catholic before I converted to Islam, unsupported and disgusting generalizations of hatred and discrimination against all Muslims around me in post 9-11 America. I never referred to nor recognized it as Islamophobia then, yet I realized it was a severe hatred and hysterical fear by a disturbing number of educated and uneducated citizens against Muslims and Islam. The escalating numbers of the former truly grasped the air from my breath. Their words led to horrendous de facto and de jure acts by the latter. If some prefer to shout Islamophobia is a malapropism, then kindly inform us all what in the hell we beheld post 9-11 and what we are observing now!? I never could possibly envisage my country’s Samaritans of all socioeconomic and political classes, procure within their assumingly tolerant and freedom loving mentalities, a horrific hysteria as I persistently witnessed from 2001 (when I was a foolish and fervent supporter of the WOT as my family members were deployed to fight in the Middle East) to 2010 when I arrived in the Middle East following my wife (a Palestinian Muslim, who was detained, miscarried with my child in jail, and deported to her country for overstaying her visa by ten days-despite the fact I filed all of the legal paperwork for her to remain in the US). I was a certain fool to gullibly invest my confidence in the Western media supporting the War Of Terrorism in 2001 and consequently in 2010 I deserved to be a victim – God’s punishment- as my virtuous wife and nascent family were cruelly destroyed by such secular rabid irrational hatred and fear -Islamophobia-promulgated by Western puppeteers such as Futile and Dawkins (ABUH)! The vicious disease of Islamophobia birthed from the womb of a secular WOT Kracken made victims of my innocent family and me while with false security, were calmly and innocently swimming in a secular ocean!! Who else will meet my fate and ignore the waves in that ocean which the same monster – Islamophobia -is whirling amidst us, hate begets hate, and hate is a cycle that destroys all including the innocent.
Why such shock at the transformation of Western society? Such blatant discrimination and bigotry went against everything I was taught as a youth that promulgated the greatness of America and the West. I knew then, liberty and freedom had fled the shores of the maniacal and marred West, and I also recognized eventually over time that this malingering WOT is ALL in the minds of the West!! We have created a Yeti or Kracken while denying our responsibilities for the malodorous inhumanities and the innocent marooned we have created, confirming the adage of Friedrich Nietzsche, “whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you.”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nuwL2mVlvA (Siraj Davis’ story at 4:07)
Defense of Mehdi Hassan and the Quran, Establishing Dawkins as an Islamophobe, and the thinking behind Islamophobes:
– And yet, for all his apparent hatred of bigotry, another eerie silence from Jones is brought to us, when we consider statements made (and very weakly defended) by Mehdi Hasan, in the past. For example, in 2009, Hasan gave a speech at the Al Khoei Islamic Centre, in which he quite openly states:
“The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, “a people of no intelligence”, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief – people of “no intelligence” – because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to shake off those blind prejudices, to shake off those easy assumptions about this world, about the existence of God.”
In a separate speech, Hasan also said:
“We know that keeping the moral high-ground is key. Once we lose the moral high-ground we are no different from the rest of the non-Muslims; from the rest of those human beings who live their lives as animals, bending any rule to fulfil any desire.”
– Is this not something along the lines of ‘Kuffarophobic‘? Mehdi Hasan dislikes me as a non-believer, without knowing me, insisting that I must live like an animal, simply for not believing the same myths that he chooses to believe. He is insulting me as a person, not my ideas or my beliefs, just as a person. This is bigotry. As is practically every opening verse to almost every chapter of the Qur’an, that seeks to dehumanise non-believers, and notes we’re only good for eternal punishment in the flames of hell. How is this not bigotry also?
It is quiet confusing, a tad bit surprising, and literally contradictory to adjudge a target of bigotry while simultaneously making bigoted remarks. And that is exactly what the audience may witness above! Dozy Futile denounces Mehdi Hassan’s remarks and then asperses every Muslim by asserting all verses and chapters in the Quran is bigoted. What do Mehdi Hassan’s opinions have to do with every single verse or chapter of the Quran or Muslim in the world? Can we see the insanity of Dawkins (ABUH) and dozy Futile!? Dozy Futile also wails and moans Hasan is insulting him ‘personally’ when his or Dawkins’ (ABUH) names are absent in both quotes. Where is this unaddressed envelope taking us!? How could dozy Futile and the Chimp exclude the above’s glaring facts? Just another reason I desire dozy Futile and me be better strangers! In order to exemplify what an insult is to dozy Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) benefit, I directly describe both here, “you blithering idiot! You festering gumboil! You flea-bitten fungus! You bursting blister! You moth-eaten maggot!”
Those are insults whiny chimps!!
To be accurate, Mehdi Hasan is not inveing upon Dawkins (ABUH) or dozy Futile ‘directly’ or ‘personally’. On the contrary, Dawkins (ABUH) and dozy Futile personally insulted Hasan and ALL Muslims! The determinant why, can be elucidated and rationalized by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.” Hasan is a better Muslim than me because ‘I am’ insulting Dawkins (ABUH) AND dozy Futile ‘directly’ and ‘personally’. Every third person in the world is a drama queen. And crying ‘victim,’ especially when you’re not really a victim in any real way, feels good. It feels good to cry victim if you’re not one.
In addition, the context of the quotes above and the consideration of a person’s character via a short segment of a YouTube clip, is an impuissant evaluation, an antiquated smear technique of Yellow Journalism. Hasan made the above comments, nowhere close to as provocative and dangerous as demanding violent jihad or even promulgating the hating and killing of Muslims (Islamophobia), while appealing to Muslims to embrace tolerance and rebuke extremism. He was amplifying his effect upon the audience by invocative means which may not have been the wisest ,yet had transparently useful and positively laudatory ambitions. Hasan transfixed and transformed his rhetoric to that of the language an extremist understands to produce a positive balm. I understand the meager complaint about his unorthodox tactic, but I fully admire, forgive, and support him for his sagacious strategy. That’s reasonable and prudent! This is more than I may say about Dawkins’ (ABUH) or dozy Futile’s monomaniac tactics and strategy of quaffing incredulously dire attention by trivial complaints and hyperbolic insults ,which I consider to be as useful as nipples on a Crusader’s breastplate!
Furthermore, let’s raise a mirror to Dawkins’ denunciatory balderdash in order to pregnant dozy Futile’s defense of him. A perfunctory and blighting quarry reveals that the esteemed Dawkins has been quoted for the following:
- a) “Religion poisons everything. But Islam has its own unmatched level of toxicity.”
- b) “…..But let’s keep things in proportion. Christianity may be pretty bad, but isn’t Islam in a league of its own when it comes to sheer vicious nastiness?”
- c) “Muslims seem to suffer from an active HUNGER to be offended. If there’s nothing obvious to be offended by, or ‘hurt’ by, they’ll go out looking for something. Are there any other similar examples we could think of, I wonder, not necessarily among religious groups?”
“d) What is there left to say about Sharia Law? Who will defend it? Who can find something, anything, good to say about Islam?”
- e) “All three of the Abrahamic religions are deeply evil if they take their teachings seriously. Islam is the only one that does.”
- f) “Yes, Christians are much much better. Their sacred texts may be just as bad, but they don’t act on them.”
- g) “I said that Islam is evil. I did NOT say Muslims are evil. Indeed, most of the victims of Islam are Muslims. Especially female ones.”
- h) “Whenever I read an article like this, I end up shaking my head in bafflement. Why would anyone want to CONVERT to Islam? I can see why, having been born into it, you might be reluctant to leave, perhaps when you reflect on the penalty for doing to. But for a woman (especially a woman) voluntarily to JOIN such a revolting and misogynistic institution when she doesn’t have to always suggests to me massive stupidity. And then I remember our own very intelligent Layla Nasreddin / Lisa Bauer and retreat again to sheer, head-shaking bafflement.”
And to literally and honestly save readers from queasiness, the other queer quotes of equally bigoted nature will be omitted now. How could such pompous , deceitful, barefaced, moral turpitude pore-filled lower drudges of intelligence be declared even for a fleeting moment, as honorable or serious? Shame on ALL OF US for allowing such baneful ignorance to be even occasionally construed or publicly tolerated as contributory discourse! I find more honor, bravery, courage, sincerity, and mental fiber in the comments of tobacco swallowing, incest procreating, suspender wearing without washing for a week, racist hillbillies of the Southern United States than all of the Dawkins (ABUH) and dozy Futiles combined!!
My response to Dawkins (ABUH) and cheeky Futile is , are you f###ing serious!? Where do you get off beleaguering others as bigots!? Your berating’s very foundation is concrete dogmatic sectarianism against religion, especially Muslims! You all are a pathetic and mundane joke!! View the comment by Hasan, count your own incursive onslaught against Islam and Muslims, and then do the same for the barrage by cheeky Futile’s vicar daddy Dawkins and…need I continue? Yes, unfortunately I do. It is a translucent attempt to scarify any concocted scapegoat to scowingly hide the manipulative intents of scurrilously ascertaining attention and fame, by creating schisms in the leftist political spectrum, and consequentially avoiding the scrutiny of the legitimacy for the WOT from being held in a belated and overdue trial. 13 years overdue! Cheeky Futile’s substantive and querulous bi##ing is nothing more than a hole in the air. In quenching defense of cheeky Futile, he is not a moron, only arrested development! And let’s remind him what an insult is again, you bloody old towser-faced boot-faced totem-pole on a crap reservation! To Dawkins, you are in your early 70s, you owe it to your parents to immediately stop writing such detritus and be the darling for young cheeky Futile by teaching him to strive to be more the man than his mother was!!
Moreover, Hasan described non-believers as ‘animals’. Why is there a disruption of the quiescence for cheeky Futile? Dawkins has scurvingly contributed a considerable portion of his sedulous life convincing others that animals have morals as humans. Dawkins is a major contributor for the Great Ape Project demanding that the international community recognize the right of Life, Liberty, and the right not to be tortured for apes. Dawkins has even ventured to considerable length to entrap minnows into his seine that humans are intelligent animals as apes, which reasons the latter has the right to the same unalienable rights as the former. Hasan considers humans better than apes. I do too. What’s the beef? Sounds like a cockamamie burlesque literary sitcom to me. One declares religion precludes morality, the other is a proponent for humans and apes having corresponding intelligence and morality. For any functioning mind, how can one incogitably elect to exchange one paradoxical insult while scuttling another?
I agree with Stephen Pollard’s observations on Dawkins (ABUH) and his futile airheads in regards to the quiddity of cheeky Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) calcitrant cretinism,
“They entirely miss the irony of their position. Religious leaders who focus solely on a sectarian appeal to their own followers, and who seek to raise their own standing by diminishing the views of others, end up on the margins of serious debate. And as their noise drowns out the quieter, less confrontational majority, they act against their own religion’s interest. We all hear about Muslim leaders issuing fatwas against homosexuals, preaching hate and the extermination of the Jews. But who hears of an Imam who is a credit to their religion? And yet the extremists are merely a flipside of the atheists. Their actions, too, are entirely negative, aimed at winning plaudits from fellow atheists and in the process poisoning the rest of society against them. We wait in vain for a high-profile atheist to acknowledge that we can all learn from some religious leaders, even if we do not share their faith.”
Despite not being apt enough to recollect the complete title of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life and possibly desiring to procreate with apes, the simian Dawkins’ anti-Muslim aspirations are not a sequacious abstruseness. Peer into the following quote by Dawkins:
“Apologists for Islam would carry more conviction if so-called ‘community’ leaders would ever go to the police and report the culprits. That would solve, at a stroke, the problem that has been exercising posters here. ‘Community’ leaders are best placed to know what is going on in their ‘communities’. Why don’t they report the perpetrators to the police and have them jailed?”
The above quote is precisely why we have a few flagitious leftists, atheists, feminists, and even perfidious Muslims serriedly cooperating with the same pogrom as the shoddy English Defense League, My Pet Jawa, and other Islamophobic vagrants; to smotheringly pressure the innocent Muslim community to aggressively engage in a sinuous perquisition for the apparitional daemon “terrorist” in barter for the sinister majority’s acclimations and the selectively slackish government’s discretionary protection. In reality, in a free and honorable society, the former should absolutely never be relevant to any equal citizen, and the latter always expected from a just government! No one should ever encumber the inalienable rights or inviolable cultural and religious pride of any minority citizen on behest of a paranoid witch hunt vis-a-vis, the War OF Terrorism. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.”
To be fair, some of the abhorrent abettors of the War OF Terrorism are not all as cognizant of their aims. They comprise of a pathetic soiree of naively and ignorantly indoctrinated zeal , another cowardly brood coerced into following the safest path of societal acceptance, and yet a third electorate is a malignant shrewdness of charlatans attacking Islam and Muslims in exchange for ephemeral sinecures and interim fame and financial rewards of such never would have been possible without their blind devotion under 211 of Stith Thompson’s Motif-Index of Folk-Literature, signed over to the media and government injected War Of Terrorism. Dodgy Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) are the worst colony, they know exactly what they are doing, which makes them of lower human morals than a species which refuses to destroy their own breed, apes. I feel mantids are a more accurate depiction!
Some in the white English and American populations shriek “seek the terrorists for us! Or make them up at the least for God’s sake, and with respect to Dawkins and dodgy Futile, for Ape’s sake!!(Notice I used the capital letter ‘A’ out of respect)” And tragically faced with none to be discovered, a minority population has no choice but allow some innocent scapegoats to be sacrificed in order to quell the furious rage of an intoxicated crazed mob in a tacit modern Aztec sacrificial ritual. It is clearer now the impetus behind Dawkins’ and dodgy Futile’s garbage, that both have a conundrum for fomenting untruths, a turrets syndrome or natural antipathy toward honesty. Wielders of humanity and truth and moderation, are languishing prey to their bouts of sudden omniscient and bigoted and pretentious judgment, and glancing at dodgy Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) premises, no suspense story could provide such climatic horror in rational thinking!
As a Muslim American, I speak on behalf of all Muslims in the UK and America when I sincerely proclaim that we don’t know where ANY terrorists are! ‘Personally’
I have strenuously searched beneath carpets.
Creatively explored Google maps.
Meticulously poked around with my aguila pipe in the garage.
Boldly pimped a long beard while traversing numerous mosques with a tawkiya while announcing to all I am ‘going to the beach’ and ‘getting married’ and ‘ordering pizza’ and seek ‘good brothers’ in ‘communities’ and embrace ‘multi-culturalism’ and all other code words that the ‘astute’ Evan Kolhmanns and other counter-terrorism erudites have claimed are cipher for terrorism.
Violently stripped the burkhas and hijabs off of unsuspecting women while sounding the bugle call of “welcome to American and English freedom”.
Secretly traveled to bucolic and dusty sand towns of the Bedouins only to disclose the satori that all of this mass insanity exists in the twisted minds of the pitiful Western citizen!
If it took several years for the US to find a 7 foot man on a camel in the middle of a desert with a dialysis machine (Osama Bin Laden), what makes the timid minded Westerner believe any Muslim can? We have better success employing the latest technologically sophisticated GPS, infrared tracking, satellite hovering gadgets of the New World Order while offering $200,000 to every Arab hillbilly we pass in order to find Waldo!
As a Muslim American whose family’s ancestors range from a lieutenant in the American Revolution, a Captain in the Civil War, a grandfather who fought in World War II, and relatives who fought in every single war of past and now, I say to those like Dawkins (ABUH) and dodgy Futile, put a fatigued uniform on and travel to the Middle East to fight terrorism, if it exists, and stop doing what Bin Laden and others have done; terrorize the average Brit and American because of their religion! Stop being a pu##y! At least Al Qaeda targeted the West because of our foreign policy, you have become worse than our own enemies! Be a part of the solution, not the problem!!! And to remind dodgy Futile and Dawkins (ABU) what an insult is, “Thou art a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-liver’d, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mungril bitch.”
Futile Democracy posited,
“Are we genuinely claiming that Richard Dawkins[‘] suggestion of the irrationality of Mehdi Hasan, is at all different to Hasan referring to anyone who doesn’t fit his narrow view of what is correct, as “incapable of the intellectual effort it takes to shake off blind prejudices“? Hasan often argues that tarring all Muslims with the same terrorist brush, is wrong. And in this, he is quite right. And yet, he seems more than happy to suggest that all non-Muslims are a people of no intelligence. We live like animals. Hasan has concluded (and shrouded his conclusion in ‘faith’, as if that makes it acceptable), that I must live like an animal (though it should be noted, that he has since backtracked, and tried – very weakly – to explain his comments. I deal with that in another article). Is this not the exact same form of bigotry that both Jones, and hypocritically, Hasan claim to disapprove so vehemently of? Can you imagine their feigned outrage, if Sam Harris or Richard Dawkins were to say that Muslims were to all be considered animals, unintelligent, and immoral, as a whole? The Guardian would have a heart attack. Owen Jones would spend his day on Twitter telling us how he’s an Atheist but disapproves of such vile bigotry.
There is no referring to Stone and Parker as bigots, for mocking Mormonism. No Presidential address in which we’re told the musical is “in bad taste” as we were told the cheaply made anti-Islamic film was in bad taste. No referring to Monty Python as bigots for mocking the story of Jesus in ‘The Life of Brian’. Only the Christian Right jumped in to attack “Jerry Springer the Opera” for its display of a grown Jesus in a nappy. The musical won Laurence Olivier Awards. Owen Jones, again, eerily silent.
Would the same respect for free expression be accepted, for the portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad in a nappy? Given that Danish cartoons result in condemnation not only from Muslims demanding the execution of anyone associated with the publication, but also from liberals in Western countries, along with judicial inquiries, sackings of Ministers who supported the cartoons, and deaths… I’d suggest that a similar musical mocking Islam would not be met with the same respect. It is not just those of us who dislike Islam as a doctrine, who treat the faith differently from other faiths. So to, do those insisting on shouting “Islamophobia!” at every possible opportunity, shielding it from the treatment afforded to other ideas.
I open my retort with never in my life have I beheld so many sidereal and verbose usage of words to melodramatically express a tiny idea, by a false sibylline petulant author’s unknown Igor always attempting to besot Dawkins (ABUH). Always a first though 🙂 I will gleefully reiterate my points above to entertain such banter equivalent of an undergraduate pimple popping mouth expelling gaseous wind ingrate. There you go, another insult. Futile git or Dawkins (ABUH) need claim nothing, as the very act of haranguing and besmirching Hasan and consequently bemusing the average human audience-because he quoted from the Quran at a congregation to promote tolerance amongst Muslims (which is far more salutary and prudent than applying a microscope over an occasional YouTube clip and arriving at fallacious and gross exaggerations of his entire character over a lifetime)- reveals itself as a suspicious and vomit inducing naseatic Broadway Production.
Though humans are entitled to mistakes, such preposterous and farcical claims by Futile git and Dawkins (ABUH) against Hassan’s words warrants no defense, it should have never garnished the attention it did from the beginning. Furthermore, the bigotry that Futile git spews forth from his Twitter account in bifurcated crescendo with Dawkins’ (ABUH), everyday , relieves or relinquishes both’s right to lament over Hassan’s comments. Hypocrisy? The alluring question is if Futile git concedes that painting all Muslims with the same terrorist brush is wrong, why did Futile git claim all verses and chapters of the Quran are bigotry? Or why did Futile git Tweet to me that “I write on a few different religions. I won’t be equally balanced. I find Islam worse than all of them…I find Catholicism dangerous, and Islam a violent cult of nonsense.” Yes! Hypocrisy indeed. Futile git may shirkingly attempt to purport a silly defense, but if one were to only glance at his and Dawkins’ (ABUH) Twitter accounts; they are saturated throughout the period of months and years with the same bleak bigotry they affectatiously decry and wailingly reprehend! Vexing religious followers, especially Muslims, with their generalized platitudes. 100 percent hypocrisy! The cruelest acts committed upon chimpanzees since poaching and cosmetic experiments, is when their story became a key for the likes of an unctuous Dawkins and his venal Futile whores, to later open the door of such odious casuistry. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance or admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.”
Barmy Futile warns us he will continue his eye-retching, hatefully perilous, and hypocritically harrowing ‘typing’ against Hasan in the future. What a tragically horrendous augury indeed! After glancing carefully at all of barmy Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) dilettante and magniloquent publications raised to the level of ‘acceptable’ by the modern magnates and cheerleaders of demagoguery, my concerns of a bitter feud of equal merit and challenge were satisfactorily alleviated. If a community library had not a single book on its empty shelves, it would still be so much more valuable and prestigious than maintaining a single macabre publication by barmy Futile or Dawkins (ABUH) on its sagacious shelves. In fact, I can comfortably say that after perusing barmy Futile’s entire jeremiad on his blog, I may honestly comment on its intellectual and literary talent. This extraordinary work of barmy Futile’s is not one to be disregarded and slightly placed aside for later lazy reading, it should be thrown with full force in the dumpster without a hiatus! Don’t waste your time on such megalomaniac insanity! Discover works with positive ambitions which contribute to the world, humanity, and apes alike. As Paul Ryan criticized, “exploiting people’s emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is not hope, it’s not change, it’s partisanship. We don’t need partisanship. We don’t need demagoguery, we need solutions.”
In regards to Futile git’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) dubious and macaronic claims that Jones and Hasan are hypocritical bigots by some hyper-exaggerated fairy tale that Jones buttresses Hassan’s bigotry (in consequence to the latter’s employment of two passages of the Quran to promote tolerance during a lecture), by not castigating Hasan for relying on-instead of criticizing his faith- is maculatedly unrealistic if not an incredulous machination. Two passages! Really? In contrast to the maelstrom of daily persistent lampooning of Muslims and other religious followers by Futile git and Dawkins (ABUH) and other weak Islamophobes, Mehdi Hasan has done the following ‘bigoted’ acts to prove he is a ‘dogmatic atheist’ like the aforementioned wanton scoundrels:
He has condemned Iran’s anti-Christian apostasy laws; unconditionally condemned all forms of suicide terrorism; criticized British Muslims for “navel-gazing and victim mentality”; denounced those Muslims like Mahmoud Ahmedinejad who engage in Holocaust denial; praised Muslim diplomat Abdul-Hossein Sardari for saving Iranian Jews from the Nazis during the Second World War; attacked Anjem Choudary for his intolerance and bigotry, and more.
Two malapromismic clauses is a sufficient smoking gun for bigotry in juxtaposition of the above!? Seriously? What about the superfluous Twitter and publication trails for Futile git and Dawkins (ABUH)?
Furthermore, I reiterate, Hasan employing the premise that humans should be tolerant of others in order to distinguish themselves from that of brutish animals, is much better than a malcontent Dawkins (ABUH) asserting that humans are solely apes and all religious constituents are evil idiots. The former has a more contributive and positive impact. The latter a malediction! I’m certain, antithetically to Dawkin’s (ABUH) expectation and astonishment, the average human is reluctant to accept we are just apes. To correct Futile git’s hypothetical over-dramatization of a Dawkins (ABUH) lampooning all Muslims as animals and Jones admonishing him yet overlooking Hasan, Futile has it half right. Dawkins (ABUH) is not stigmatizing Muslims as stupid, animal-like, dangerous, evil, and egotistical Nazis; he is calling the followers of all religious denominations such, with extra lacuna toward Muslims because he is a WOT strumpet. And unlike Jones, Futile git is 24/7 on Twitter declaring to the world he is a malefactor atheist while spewing forth a daily malaise of vile bigotry. View his account!
Here is another incomplete list of Dawkins’ (ABUH) quotes on Islam:
“Haven’t read Koran so couldn’t quote chapter & verse like I can for the Bible. But often say Islam greatest force for evil today.”
“One of the great evils in the world.”
“Who the hell do these Muslims think they are?”
“This is a Christian country…You cannot understand the English language unless you read the Bible.”
“The Christian religions, especially the Anglican religion, is benign by comparison…Imperatively benign.”
“Mehdi Hasan admits to believing Muhamed [sic] flew to heaven on a winged horse. And New Statesman sees fit to print him as a serious journalist.”
“Of course you can have an opinion about Islam without having read Qur’an. You don’t have to read Mein Kampf to have an opinion about Nazism.”
“Islam is the Trojan Horse in Europe,” he declares, warning it would mean “the end of European and Dutch civilisation as we know it.” He made a short film, Fitna, which portrays Muslims as inherently violent because of their religion. Here is a man who should be damned by all tolerant people. But Dawkins wrote: “Geert Wilders, if it should turn out that you are a racist or a gratuitous stirrer and provocateur I withdraw my respect, but on the strength of Fitna alone I salute you as a man of courage, who has the balls to stand up to a monstrous enemy.”
Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile git bigots? Naaahh! Why would anyone believe that!?
As Obamalover20122 of DailyKos stated,
“It has become increasingly clear that famed atheist Richard Dawkins’ criticism of Islam has taken on a bigoted tone. His criticism have devolved into an ignorant bigotry that is factually and scientifically deficient. When you eschew knowledge in favor of ignorant hatred then you violate the very principles of what it means to be a secular humanist. This is what Dawkins has done.”
Rebuttal that Innocence of Muslims was Muslim Over-reaction
Hindi-Phatele nirodh ke natije
Bloomy Futile posited that there were no virulent condemnations upon the creations of Monty Python’s Life of Brian or Jerry Springer’s The Opera as with the film Innocence of Muslims . And that both aforementioned films were just as blasphemous as the Innocence of Muslims . This is erroneous. And it is time to put these myths to rest.
Monty Python’s Life of Brian was relatively ‘benign’ when set side by side to the grave transformations of the storyline and depiction of the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in The Innocence of Muslims . As Richard Webster stated in reference to the former in A Brief History of Blasphemy, “as a satire on religion, this film might well be considered a rather slight production. As blasphemy it was, even in its original version, extremely mild.” In regards to public reaction being miniscule, Life of Brian had:
Several censured cuts to its ‘pristine’ footage prior to its controversial release (unlike Innocence of Muslims).
BBC and ITV refused to play it.
Thirty nine cities in the UK boycotted it.
Norway and Ireland passed national injunctions against it lasting until the end of the first decade of the 21st century and it is still banned in Germany.
There were even strepitous pickets and boycotts with occasional violent demonstrations in New York and other US cities.
Debates raged on BBC, and more.
What was the blasphemous facet of the above film? It was stigmatized blasphemous because one simple scene in the theatrical rebus did not emotionally depict the crucifixion of Jesus (PBUH) as painfully and horrendously as many umbrageously believed. In regards to Jerry Springer’s The Opera , it suffered condemnation as well. It was met with 55,000 petitions and complaints , street protests in 14 cities in the UK, and an attempt by the Christian Institute to press criminal charges upon BBC director Mark Thompson for running it. What was so blasphemous about The Opera? The show contained more than 200 swear words and depicted God, Jesus (PBUH), Mary, Adam and Eve, and Satan as warring guests on a special edition of the Jerry Springer Show set in hell.
How about the Innocence of Muslims?
The film was introduced under unillusory and non-nominal names unlike Springer’s and Python’s films, such as The Real Life of Mohammed , The Innocence of Bin Laden, The Real Mohammed Movie, etc. There could be no denial of its aim. Instead of publicly unanimous and forceful condemnation solely upon the blasphemous nature of the film by major media networks and critics and other entities, obloquy was funneled toward the garrulous character of the film’s creator and the production’s fledgling quality in order to bottle neck the participation in the production of the film toward a few deranged authors. Emphasis was also aimed at the obstinate Muslim reactions around the world in response to its distribution. Why was there no discussion on its inherit sacrilege? Why was the film’s blasphemy occluded?
The Innocence of Muslims depicted the venerable prophet Mohammed (PBUH) as
A male chauvinist philanderer that capriciously incorporated indiscriminate verses into the Quran in exchange for sexual favors and who unequally treated his wives and ‘girlfriends’ as emotionless sexual objects.
A domineering and patriarchal husband despised by his jealous wives.
Born a spoiled and selfish bastard.
Gluttonous and ungenerous with victuals.
Quickly prone to sudden volatile bouts of maniacal rage tempered with compulsive suicidal urges.
Childishly undisciplined and incorrigible.
A cold-hearted murderous thug and immoral compassionless extortionist.
Atrophied in intelligence and gullibly naive so as to make decisions to the cajoles of anyone, a narcissist believing himself to be God.
A sexual deviant child molester and homosexual debaucher who plays both quarterback and receiver positions in sexual intercourse with men and boys.
And all the other current prevalent myths that indecent Islamophobic extremists attach to the archetype minstrel of Muslims and Islam today.
And it’s not over! The apparition of fire over the Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) image insinuating he is Satan, is ‘more’ than tacitly understood. Furthermore, the film not only vehemently and shamelessly maligned a prophet, but it challenged and vitiated the sanctity of the Quran depicting its origin as a coagulation of stolen verses from the Torah and ‘New Testament’ by Khadija’s cousin. It also characterized the wife of the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) Khadija as a pedophile who molested the prophet Mohammed (PBUH). The blasphemous onslaught exceeds the normal barometer of insults, it demonizes Islam by mockingly insulting the core beliefs of Islam so much, that an atheist oculist would have banned viewing the film.
The prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was not the only victim. The loyal companions of the revered Prophet Mohammed (PBUH), the equivalent of the apostles of Jesus (PBUH), were also not immune to such insensitive ignorance and malevolence. Jafar Ibn Abi Talib, one of the prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) closest companions and cousin was portrayed in the movie as a thoughtless donkey, the companions or apostles were also limned as cretinous murderous rapists and child molesters with one scene even venturing to the disgusting extent of showing the companions torturously raping a helpless elderly lady. And throughout the film, Islam is portrayed as having spread not by tolerance, justice, and love; but at behest of many innocent victims’ deaths from the end of a Muslim’s sword.
Now I sincerely ask, what film can we find a ‘portion’ of the above sacrilegious slanders in the Innocence of Muslims against Judaism, Atheism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other belief system? NONE! I researched and viewed the worst of them!! My second query. Point out an equivalent of the Innocence of Muslims or a Jyllands-Posten cartoon of the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) by ‘any’ Muslim blemishing any other religion. The moral high ground is very clear. The preceding is very paramount for the wailing “Yeeeeeesssss! Terruuuristsss…” retinue of Islamophobic Smeagels. As they narrate a crazed alter realm of reality absent of accurate facts and their efforts devoid of positive purpose upon their pinnacle of a moral sierra, they have in fact confused their perceived achievement against the WOT as a refreshing aqueous zephyr, a sign of liberating raindrops in the near distance, when in fact, it is only me urinating on them from a higher moral cliff. Exhilarating and rejuvenating indeed 🙂 I aver at least get your facts first, then distort them as you please!
Islamophobes also group the reactions of foreign and Western Muslim protestors in one Cold War era monolithic-type Red Scare conspiracy. We should reveal the truth to such McCarthyistic fallacies. In total of circa 65 mass protests worldwide in condemnation of the Innocence of Muslims, approximately 10 percent involved some form of violence, none of them occurring in the UK, Europe, or America by Western Muslims. The violent protests (at what innocuous number it was) materialized in countries where people were more personally affected and offended about the repugnant torture at Abu Ghraib, the pernicious rendition of innocent humans to Guantanamo (the Atlantic estimates 60 percent of those at Guantanamo are innocent, the Voice Of Russia claims 90 percent) , non-combatants callously murdered by the precision accurate bombs and those dying slowly by cancer and birth defects from depleted uranium; responded with a surprisingly small rate and nature of violence at such a large number of demonstrations. Despite the few innocent who died in such paltry yet tragic incidents as the burning of the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, I find the preceding reaction by the foreign Muslim populations, under the circumstances of massive victimization by a more powerful assailant, laudable! The West is a location of luxury, hedonism, and financial security. The Middle East is one of prevalent penury and corruption by Western backed dictators. Marcus Aurelius and Plato would concur, morality and principles are expected more from the former than the latter. However, being scathingly honest does not preclude my duty to report the truth. I will honestly conclude that Islamophobes have successfully proven that bigotry can be extricated from human ignorance, they’ve done so thousands of times.
Such opprobrious climatic drama of a foreign Islamic plague designed to quell freedom of expression and destroy Western civilization, is a media injected fantasy chimera in which a frightened Teddy Bear clutching retinue of KKK bigots, exaggerate paranoia for their own selfishly lamentable bromidic Shakespearean sophistry. When considering the sincere honesty of Islamophobes, I suddenly am hit with a plumule concern that my fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them. What shall be the fate of this deadly psychosomatic disease Islamophobia and its petulant childish cowardly poltroons? Will it even conclude its madness in the world? Perhaps brother Malcom was indeed correct, “America [and England] needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, even eaten with people who in America would have been considered ‘white,’ but the ‘white’ attitude had been removed from their minds by the religion of Islam.”
Defense of Islam by Refuting Nick Cohen’s Claims of Inherit Extremism and Conglomerating Foreign and Western Muslims Into One Monolithic Group. Also Demonstrating Unfair Generalizations When Compared to Christianity
Bengali- “Pedo pundit.”
When any criticize Dawkins (ABUH) a malaise ensues. The swarm from the nest of dogmatic atheists and other maleficent responding to the slightest perception of a threatening malady of the same healthy criticism Futile git and Dawkins (ABUH) claim to lampoon other religions in behest, fly in with the speed of a Sphinx moth vomiting their venom like a Hymenoptera with stylets of verbose length to make the lifespan of a queen termite jealous, charging in like zealous zeals attacking and enervating all truth bearers with ridiculously nonsensical verbose and derisory literary feculence. The following, Nick Cohen at The Spectator , is one of those galloping asses of Dawkins’ (ABUH) herd.
Nick Cohen defends Dawkins by stating, “no admirer of The God Delusion has ever planted a bomb, or called for the murder of homosexuals, Jews and apostates.”
That’s quiet ingratiating for us Muslims with your slimy ostentatious orotund. Thank you Great Nick! It is typical Islamophobe generalization to erroneously claim Islam is the sole dogma that hypnotizes people to kill innocent humans, thus implying that the religion of Islam is inherently dangerous. We often hear gross exaggerations such as no other religion propels people to cruelly stone women, execute homosexuals, employ bombs for suicide, etc. All of this derives from a neo Hearst-like media that persistently implants such false stereotypes into the less perspicacious minds of their naive audience. For example, in the violent incidents of Woolwich, London, Boston and even 9-11; though the mysterious perpetrators all publicly claimed oppressive Western foreign policy drove them to engage in unorthodox and indiscriminate hostilities against the West, the propaganda tactic of marginalization by the media was to emphasize the fanaticism and the religion of such assailants as opposed to considering the complaints of such non-normative offenders. This creates an unlevel ground where mentally unstable Muslims who commit atrocities are attached to Islamic fanaticism while any social deviant of other religions or without, are just misled anomalies. For example, the religion of the shooters in the Maryland and Sandy Hook school massacres were not even mentioned with brevity by the media because they weren’t Muslims. Such tactic leaves society with the inaccurate impression that Islam is the derisive problem, and unavoidable facts demonstrate it is an undeserved stigma.
Islamophobes like Nick a donkey’s head don’t realize or purposely ignore that the West’s WOT has mercilessly murdered millions of more impeccant women, children, elderly, and other non-combatants in the Middle East than all recent massacres from Muslim violence against Westerners combined, enumerated, and exponentially multiplied? Should we callously apply similar flawed rationale and place on the surgeon’s table the religion of Christianity or Atheism or the very pillars of English and American ideology? The last I recollect, The God Delusion is a posterior replication of Atheist thoughts, akin to those of Mao Ze Dong and Stalin, some leaders who did copacetically flick billions of Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals into the furnace or grave. Such media manipulation of a human phenomena leaves the average of intellect to question the obvious, why wasn’t an equivalent campaign of military action and/or media denunciation against Christian terrorism/extremism embarked upon when:
Joe Stacks kamikazied a plane into an IRS building, citing in his manifesto the corruption of the Catholic Church as a motivation?
Timothy McVeigh, member of the Christian Identity Movement, blew up a federal building. A copy of The Turner Diaries was discovered in his vehicle. Such literature claims that the extinction of blacks and consequent success of whites was exigent for the realization of God’s experiment.
Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at the White House intending to kill president Obama while claiming he was Jesus
Anders Behring Breivik massacred 200 , then released a manifesto claiming he was a modern Christian Crusader elected by God to battle with Muslims.
Scott Roeder and Eric Robert Rudolph murdered innocent victims and blew up abortion clinics because God is against abortion.
28-year-old Kyle Aaron Huff entered a rave after party in the southeast part of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood and opened fire, killing six and wounding two, before committing suicide.
A Christian James Holmes of Colorado killed 12 and injured 58 while dressed in military fatigues and booby-trapping his home with explosives in expectation of the arrival of law enforcement.
Adam Lanza, a Catholic who hated Christmas trees in his house, consequently committed the Sandy Hook Massacre.
Wade Michael Page, a Christian admirer of Nazi Darwinism in Wisconsin killed six worshippers at a Sikh temple
One Goh, a Christian slaughtered 7 in California.
Jeffrey Weise, another Christian admirer of Nazi Darwinism killed 8 in Minnesota
A Christian Charles Carl Roberts IV with 600 rounds of ammunition, explosives, handcuffs and sexual lubricant; shot and murdered 6 Amish girls in Pennsylvania.
Eric David Harris and Dylan Bennet Klebold committed the Columbine High massacre , the largest school in history , wherein both in their journals often wrote about their admiration for Timothy McVeigh and the former on Darwinistic natural selection.
Seung-Hui Cho massacred university students at Virginia Tech where he proclaimed in his manifesto that he was a Jesus battling the hedonistic and opulent wealthy of society.
John Patrick Bedell shot and wounded two security officials at the Pentagon
Is England immune?
Why wasn’t an equivalent campaign of military action and/or media denunciation embarked upon against Christian Terrorism/Extremism when:
The Protestant/Catholic turmoil left over 50,000 casualties in Ireland?
Michael Robert Ryan slaughtered 16 people in 1987
Michael Stone killed 3 victims in 1988
Thomas Hamilton massacred 16 in 1996
Derrick Bird left 12 dead in 2010
Are atheists unsullied and irreproachable from such tragic and disgusting human phenomena!? Apparently not!
Why wasn’t an equivalent campaign of military action and/or media denunciation embarked upon against Atheist terrorism/extremism when:
Jared Lee Loughner, someone who refused to list his religion on his military application and declared his atheism in a final video of himself, killed 6 while targeting a US congressman in Tuscon, Arizona
The Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka are killing large numbers of innocent humans in the name of atheism
The Khmer Rouge killed so many in Cambodia
(*Note* The above facts and statistics do NOT include acts of terrorism such as the prevalent burning of mosques, violent assaults, and other hate crimes against Muslims)
In of all the above, there was not even a cricket’s chirp of criticism against a plausible seed of fanaticism within the dogma of Christianity, Catholicism, Atheism, or any other religion. Instead the majority of media publications on the subject blamed intoxicating drugs, a tormented abusive past life, lack of proper social integration, catastrophic results of a war environment, discreet bullying, virulent racism, tragic failures of the system to detect such abnormal behavior which led to the unfortunate outcome, etc. Provocative materials found in the belongings of the above assailants of those massacres, belonging to organizations such as the NRA, the Christian Identity Movement, Neo Nazis, US Freedom Army, League of the South, militia groups, and so on were never perfunctorily investigated or publicly insinuated as propaganda from ‘terrorist’ organizations or less fanatical dogma. Also, unlike the Boston bombers, all of the above were read their Miranda rights and some were sentenced to less time than the questionably accused at Guantanamo Bay who are imprisoned on circumstantial evidence. And politicians such as Senator Lindsey Graham didn’t demand any of the above killers to be shipped directly to Guantanamo. All of this displays undeniably unfair treatment under the Constitution and a suspicious reaction in the media, when massacres by Muslims are juxtaposed with others of past and now.
The dangerous menace of Islamic fanaticism is not only immensely blown out of proportions in the Yellow Western media, but the evidence does not even slightly justify such unwarranted psychosomatic apprehension. According to historical articles, there are 8 times more attempted and actual terrorist attacks by Ecological and Animal Rights Terrorist groups than Muslim terrorists in the world. Since 2001 till now, 33 percent of suspected terrorist attacks around the world were reportedly involving Muslims and 30 percent by Christians. Loon Watch reports that according to FBI statistics,”6% of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil from 1980 to 2005 were carried out by Islamic extremists. The remaining 94% were from other groups.” White American bigots have killed more innocent casualties in the year 2011 than Islamic extremism in 11 years, and 3 times more people have died by gun deaths in America since the Sandy Hook Massacre on Dec. 14, 2012, than in the 9-11 attacks. When comparing segments of decades, the majority of domestic terrorist incidents in America occurred not during the fauz paux War OF Terrorism, but during the 1960s and 1970s civil rights struggle. What is there to fear in the West from Muslims and Islam!?
The WOT’s inveterate Middle Eastern jingoism-specifically the unconditional support of Israel’s overtly vicious apartheid and silent ethnic cleansing with impunity- remain outside the realm of legitimate criticism. It is an impregnable mainstream and superficial media womb where none of influential political stature as John F. Kennedy nor celebrity status as Angelina Jolie nor any constituent from brobdingnagian human rights organizations as Amnesty International nor progressive muckraking media gurus as Thomas Nast- despite their spurious claims of being heroically powerful and honest advocates of truth, justice, peace, humanity, and freedom- can yet penetrate. Humanity is suffocating as a result. Criticism of the WOT is the last frontier and those who have explored it are exiled to the fringes of mainstream politics, media, and society. If such an investigator or sightseer is Muslim and attempts to vellicate humankind’s senses, they are cruelly stigmatized like journalist Mehdi Hasan as a ‘potential terrorist’ or ‘Islamic fundamentalist’, whether publicly ostracized or if such censure is later dissembled as resulting from reprimand much more petty and trivial. As Voltaire stated, “it is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind.”
The WOT propaganda fortress is the same historical ploy of the southern slave machinery set forth against slave rebellions beneath the Southern Mason Dixie line of America, where snobbish aristocratic slave owners farcically claimed that their slaves were satisfied with being fed, clothed, and protected -without charge- under the motherly auspices of an adorned slavery. Thus obsequious African Americans had no legitimate determinant, other than a dubious discreet contagion of religious fanaticism, to agitate against slavery. This Pre-Klu Klux Klan/ Confederate hill-billy establishment barefacedly omitted news of abrupt slave revolts in southern newspapers to connivingly augment such emetic and spurious claims as the preceding. However, perspicacious historians later would discover evidence of silenced revolts, hidden in confidential political and military reports.
Furthermore, the aforementioned slavery charlatans also punished slave rebellions mercilessly in cricketing silence, as anyone vaguely thought to be even remotely ‘associated’ with the mutiny or who was identified as a participant via confessions under torture or coercion, were incarcerated and executed. This same southern despotism imposed a pernicious Gag Rule on the United States Congress to silence northern politicians on the subject of slavery. Worse, they manipulated ignorant Uncle Tom slaves to vocally support such disgusting propaganda and employed such perfidious quislings to hunt down runaway slaves. Injustice and oppression – centuries of it – was enabled by hiding the eruptions of discontent and transferring the malignant cause of such noticeable phenomena from the conditions and oppression of slavery to the ‘religious fanaticism’ of Christianity- according to the Southern slave aristocracy – taught to gullible and detached slaves by malicious white northern Christian preachers. That same antiquated aristocracy – former Dawkins, Futile Atheists, and more versions – also known as the slave bourgeoisie, a former version of the Zionist bourgeoisie, made it illegal for whites to instruct slaves how to write or read the Bible. Southern slave society was virulently racist and extremely oppressive, a military state, and it was enabled to tragically proceed for so long at the tragic cost of so many innocent lives because the southern society was deceived by a few opulent aristocrats that ‘religious fanaticism’ rather abhorrent oppression, was the culprit of slave violence. And so we see parallels with the posterity of slave aristocrats in Western nations today, the same ignorant bigotry, in the adamant and blind/deaf support of Israeli apartheid today, and Islamophobia, and the WOT.
Not much has changed today as we have witnessed post 9-11, just the names and circumstances.
Nick Futile also claims that the left is jealous of Dawkins’ (ABUH) egalitarian approach in criticizing religions. Even going to such strenuous length as castigating Jones for berating Dawkins (ABUH) for the latter saying ‘Who the hell do these Muslims think they are?’
As the above quotes I enumerated in prior paragraphs clearly demonstrate, the ‘cultural Christian’ Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile barmy are far from egalitarian droves! They both have consistently demonized the Quran and all Muslims as worse than other monotheistics, and both have shockingly arrived at such acerbic conclusions, admittingly, without having read the Quran or investigated and compared the rates of terrorist statistics/number of casualties with the War OF Terrorism’s human victims.
Is that rational? Is it logical? Is it not bigotry to callously generalize about all races or religions with a dearth of evidence or without?
I aver confidently, with 100 percent certainty, that I comprehend the demands for the freedom by Islamophobes! It is an obnoxious freedom to be puerile bigoted, insensitive like a jennet, squanderingly quarrleous, and bedrock-like witless. This is NOT Atheism! I know many ‘good’ Atheists, extremely intelligent and with higher purpose. In contrast, the nescient thoughts and vexatious words of Dawkins (ABUH), Futile Barmy, and Nick Futile’s bald head consist of the derivatives entailing dogma, zealotry, and sequestered avarice only. Without the ‘futile’ war of pathetic and fallacious religious rhetoric drowning out the human phenomena of Islamophobia and ensconcing the rapacious avarice underneath the table of the WOT:
The forlorn and gloomy human costs would be evident,
The neo uncultivated iniquitous and dogmatic/zealous greedy charlatanic Stalin and Andrew Jackson cognoscentises exposed.
Peace could even materialize.
We peace loving and tolerant progressives and freedom loving World Citizens could mate with interracial and inter-religious breeds of penury and pecunuity while chowing down on unhealthy and piquant victuals.
Treat each human as equal brothers and sisters in one imperfect Utopian human family
Focus on positively contributing to non-violent and tolerant acculturation and augmenting the Flynn Effect in this globalization period.
Challenge superannuated taboos and stereotypes and generalizations with obeisance to multi religious and cultural prerogatives and favorable contributions.
And procure an emollient rather than bouldering transition to world peace. The anathema to those recruits of Islamophobia.
If Islamophobia was eradicated, the occasion should be met by humanity with a paean for the world is much safer and better without the graceless banal dogmatic, disgustingly zealous, lugubriously lachrymose, issue ballooning, attention cupiditous, time dilapidating, mundanely pooh pooh-ing, mendaciously dissembling, mosquito beleaguering, tightwadly profligating, egotistical saturnalian, intellectually vacuous, fecally scrupulous, excessively tendentious, ineptly caviling, obviously unlettered, false hubrisly anti-paragon, uselessly heckling, kismetly feckless, towering libidoistic concupiscence for chimpanzees, intellectual valetudinarians and inauthentic liberals, or bigots.
The left, including me, do not envy the freedom of speech by Islamophobes such as Dawkins (ABUH), Nick a stray cat with HIV, Futile Nicks, etc. Liberals are deeply frightened where such irresponsible, flawed, and loosely immoral critical thinking skills lead. Such purposely provocative generalizations result in the dehumanization of its harmless unsuspecting target and consequent indiscriminately violent non-normative acts from the lesser educated, mentally impaired, and irascipe segments of the population. American minstrel shows as Jump Jim Crow, led to the Jim Crow laws of the Southern United States. Such seemingly innocuous entertainment – the majority of the population poked fun with claim describing such shows as innocuous and humorous banter – featuring African Americans with exaggerated physically unattractive characteristics such as aggrandizing the lips, eyes, and darkening the skin while emphasizing reproachable behavior such as uncontrollably lusting after white women and exemplified diminished thinking skills; led to Jim Crow Laws of the South. Historians today credit the minstrels as engendering lynchings, disenfranchisement, and discrimination against African Americans. And so do the antics and words of such Islamophobes today.
Islamophobes are the new age WOT’s Thomas ‘Daddy’ Rices, Kyle Onstats, Margaret Mitchells, Joe Chandler Harrises, David Butlers, Sax Rohmers, Leni Riefenstahls, D.W. Griffiths, Samuel Fullers and Curt Hansons. They negligently embolden, and ideologically bolster a saturnine dichotomous human phenomena of extremism, secular and religious. The Islamic extremist who warns the majority moderate Muslims that the West intends to destroy Islam and its adherents. And the Western extremist who embellishes the farce that Islam desires to conquer the West. And therein is where those of sound mind, esteemed morality, and unconquerable thirst for peaceful coexistence, equal justice, and freedom reign in upon these Islamophobic miscreants and abecedarian tyros. Such words make many victims, without having to light the match, control a drone, or pull the trigger themselves. As John W. Gardner once stated, “political extremism involves two prime ingredients: an excessively simple diagnosis of the world’s ills, and a conviction that there are identifiable villains back of it all.”
On September 30, 2011 a Muslim scholar was executed in a drone strike because he was considered the major propagandist for Al Qaeda. He passively invigorated many extremist Muslims with chants of “we will implement the rule of God on earth by the tip of the sword” and “I Pray that Allah Destroys America.” His thoughts amalgamated with provocatively unrestrained freedom of speech was so potent that he was not exiled from America like Emma Goldman. He was silenced by extra-judicial death! A few extremists who had exchanged one email with him, attended a single lecture of his, or downloaded or viewed his internet videos on their laptops were also suspected of terrorism.
Anwar Al Awlaki did not explicitly command Muslims to destroy a specific political target or burn any religious building, kill an innocent person, commence indiscriminate violence upon non-believers, order Islamic governments to pass laws discriminating against non-believers, suppress religious identity including articles of clothing, insult innocent non-believers and generalize about the Christian religion, invade Christian countries, etc. In likeness to some Islamophobes; he vehemently insulted and directed his rage through the funnel of generalizations by challenging the dogma of Christianity and demonizing American Democracy, challenging the former and latter, effacing from consideration the plethora of good Christians and Americans. In contrast, he supported violence ‘only in self defense’ and challenged the legitimacy of the WOT, Democracy, and America. His unabated willingness to generalize and capriciously insult the ‘other’ made him as popular amongst Islamic extremists as Islamophobes today. Yet, he was an American who hated his country’s foreign policy which supposedly is allowed by the US constitution. He told Muslims to defend their homelands against US invasion. Ann Coulter states on Fox News – in front of a larger audience- to bomb the Middle East to the Stone Age, forcibly convert all of the Middle East to Christianity, and to wipe out all resistenace to Israel. The former is killed in an extra-judicial drone strike and the latter rewarded with money and fame. However, because there was a War OF Terrorism (some say against Islam as well) and Awlaki was Muslim, he was stigmatized as a terrorist. There are many Islamophobic American Peter the Hermits today like Anwar Al Awlaki; Ann Coulter, Brigitte Gabriel, Evan Kohlmann, Geet Wilders, etc.
One of them is Dawkins (ABUH) who at an atheism event at the Crown Royal Hotel in Crystal City, Virginia, concluded “science must ultimately destroy organized religion” and that religion was a blockade to reality and human existence, which is construed as evil. The fortuitous fact that the Atheist population in England and America is so dim a constituency saves Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile git the few acts of unexpected extremism we saw in Woolwich and Norway, from being affiliated with the former and latter’s words. From being charged with terrorism themselves. And because there are no atheist countries with oil like Muslim ones! But then again, as demonstrated previously, as long as it isn’t Islamic extremism, no one really cares. There is hope though. It is extremely laudatory that the former leader of the English Defense League (EDL), Tommy Robinson, realized where such hate imbibed generalizations as Futile Barmpot and Dawkins (ABUH) may lead, by finally leaving the EDL.
Nick Futile’s Large Mouth then purports Dawkins’ (ABUH) criticisms on Islam and all Muslims are deserving, as other Islamophobes assert, because Shia, Sunni, and Christians are persecuted in the Middle East, ending the silly bemoan with “They [liberal journalists] never stick their necks out and defend real liberal Muslims and ex-Muslims who are being persecuted in Britain right now.” Then he uses the case of Sudanese refugee Nahla Mahmoud of the British Council of Ex-Muslims to augment his emetic and pathetic hyperboles.
Many Islamophobes attempt to demonize Islam via pointing, with overconfident panache, toward the civil strife between a small portion of extremist Muslims in the Middle East, specifically Shia and Sunni hostilities, a powder keg lit by political vacuums ‘Western’ offensive actions in the region catapulted…how dare Nick himself without vaseline be so callously stupid to fall in suit!! When confronted with such limited logic, I query why must we be horribly tormented to the painful sights of print by dilettantes of human phenomena , history, and the accuracy of recent events in the ME as a result of the WOT!? The recent Sunni and Shia palingenesis, to the surprise of some, did not exist before the West’s invasion of Iraq. However, when leaders of a country are violently deposed against the express objections of the international community, when secular Baathist forces are removed because they fail to curry favor amongst pompous Western nations, and a recognized government is not immediately replaced with a new one before pandemonium implodes, naturally a vie for power follows. Such was the case of the LA Riots, when the ‘noble’ federal government literally bribed gang leaders to help restore order after ‘honorable’ and ‘courageous’ law enforcement fled en masse from the southern portions of California’s penury to protect the wealthier areas of northern Hollywood pecunuity. And in this region, the deeply ingrained tensions, or powerful stimulants of identity in the Holy Land, is the Shia and Sunni partition. Such antipathy is reignited especially, when in the Don Quixote pursuit of establishing a ‘Democracy,’ one religious group is forcibly ousted from power while another empowered, in a replica of Tutsi/Hutu embroilment of rage in consequence of a Western third party’s discretionary favoritism.
The deposition of a Sunni government by a Shia majority in Iraq, artificially concocted by Western bigotry, just like the Middle Eastern borders in Sykes-Picot, has now emboldened Sunni extremists to play tit-for-tat in Syria with the aspiration of removing a minority Shia (Alawaite) leadership by a Sunni majority. And interestingly, the West is financing that regime change in Syria, as it did in Iraq, as it has done in over hundreds of other countries. Since 1776, the US has invaded over 70 nations in the name of defending freedom and battling evil barbarians. Now, the West and Israel is giving money and weapons to a Shia government to kill Sunni insurgents in Iraq while simultaneously giving money and weapons to Sunni insurgents to fight a Shia government. Divide and conquer. The world’s affluent and wealthy warlords’ best friends and Al Qaeda’s closest buddies, are the West and Israel which bolster their capability to use the Middle East as a diabolical chessboard in a carrot and stick game of Sunni versus Shia competition for power. The War OF Terrorism pays! And what new charlatans with avarice in their eyes have arisen because of that capitalization!? Conscience or avarice, the same test all humans throughout history are tested with, is the WOT.
Saudi Arabia and Iran, the former a staunch ally of the West, the latter of Russia, were not engaging in such levels of antipathy before the WOT, nor was Al Qaeda and now ISIS so omniprescient. Why must the West shamelessly persist in manipulating and coercing the weaker third world by brutally severing its historical borders, giving those artificial High school projects neo-colonial names, and then glamorously enjoy the cajoling attention and bondage-like support of an ignorant third world paparazzi by engendering them to joust over the entertaining satisfaction of the same gluttonous giant. An obese giant ‘generously’ flicking leftover victuals from its blood-stained fingernails to the dirty ground to third world Uncle Toms while decent starving ‘humans’ of the third world, the equivalent of field negroes, are left outside the master’s house blanket-less in the freezing Antarctic cold? Why not just be honest and straightforward about such theatrics!?
Instead, we have a popularized rhetoric on religion and extremism, as if what is occurring today never existed in the annals of historical empires! Or as if extremism and religious fanaticism is only prevalent in Islamic or Arabic culture. Or as if secular Baathist entities in the Middle East which kept such forces at bay were not removed by the West? The West and Israel cries Democracy in Syria and is stumped as to who is or is not, Al Qaeda ISIS Nusra FSA, amongst the 53 resistance groups it feeds in Syria.
The truth is, Syria ‘was’ a Democracy before the typical zealous Stephen Meades offered an Arab military dictator Western financing for an Operation Straggle or Wappen coup, among many of its type across the unsuspecting globe, that imprudently removed the first democratically elected president of Syria in the 1940s, and crushed Democracy’s gasping breath. The West’s intervention of that Democracy brought Bashar Al Assad to power! Now, the West is aiding the fighting in Syria for Democracy? Who is stupid enough to fall for that bullshit!?
Democracy has become the neologistic crutch of the wealthy Western aristocrats and their Arab Benedict Arnold whores of today, who employ it when overdue criticism arrives. It is better if the West be honest and straightforward! We are removing Bashar Al Assad because his banks are too independent (they don’t have the name Rothschild on them) and Syria’s debt is too small as South Carolina’s was before the Civil War, or he supports groups adamantly opposed to the 2 State Solution for Palestine, or he boldly stands against US foreign policy! Be honest! Have some decency and halt the Scrabble game of vernacular!! As Tacitus put it, “they rob, kill and plunder all under the deceiving name of Roman Rule. They make a desert and call it peace.”
Furthermore, I have no clue how Islamophobes such as Dawkins’ (ABUH) or Futile cobbler’s attacks on moderate liberal Muslims by their bigoted provocative generalizations about all Muslims and Islam, contributes to deterring the exact extremism they desire to preclude. It bewilders me this obscure panoply. How does such frivolous paramour bridge the gap between diminishing the extremist elements of the West and Middle East, while proliferating the middle secular forces? It’s like a game of bait and trap by extremists. Again terrorist incident provokes attacks and discrimination against innocent Muslims in the ME and the West, it adds to the recruits of the extremists, and the West spends money reacting in more offensives and security costs. Who says extremists are stupid!? It appears Islamophobes desire to vehemently demonize Islam, in the name of protecting liberal Muslims and Western society, while simultaneously employing the tactics and language which augment the extremist threat! It’s a form of parricide!
And how in the hell does condemning Islam and all Muslims in consequence to the conflict of Shia and Sunnis in the ME (which doesn’t exceed the bloodshed of the Protestant Reformation or Protestant/Catholic conflict of Ireland’s and England’s dirty war) relate to protecting moderate and liberal Muslims in England? I feel tipsy as if I funneled a few kegs of vodka following such argument! But of course , if one reflects deeply about Nick a squirrel’s tail rationale, such a roadmap magically appears nonchalantly. Let us read his thoughts in the following:
We should all passionately defend those who rebuke the religion of Islam because it is inherently evil and dangerous, moreso than any other secularly vaccinated religion!! Those brave ones, a paucity, who have decided to become atheists like Nahla Mahmoud are civilized, and the rest brutes. Such apostasy will make Islam and Muslims, and consequently the world, safe!!
Dawkins (ABUH), Futilecobbler, and Nick Futile’s Mom’s cleavage, are recreations of Rudyard Kipling in their own sickening propaganda of the White Atheist’s Burden! Another Richard Pratt’s “Kill the [Muslim], but save the [human]” superiority complex of assimilation rather than acculturation as the only key, while underneath, discreetly stealing the lands and resources -like oil- from the homelands of these newly enlightened and civilized ‘humans’!! As Dawkins said himself “a native speaker of English who has never read a word of the King James Bible is verging on the barbarian.”
Islamophobes have an Orientalist knack of stigmatizing all Muslims and Islam as an ‘other’ inferior in intellect, reason, creativity, and devoid of anything which could be construed as contributory or progressive. This is far from the truth! Muslims, are breathing representatives of the ‘first’ civilization in history, three of the four River Civilization are in the ME, much older than infantile England and European America combined! More ancient than Greece or Rome!! Muslim bestowals to science and arts and secularism have contributed to what the West ‘is’ today. Our venerable heroes consist of even non-Arabs such as Saladin Ayubi and former African slaves who rose to greatness within their lifetimes (unlike in American and English history) such as Tariq Bin Ziyad, the venerated Athan caller Bilal, and more.
Let us proceed to enumerate here:
- Muslims gave Europeans their history when they lost the works of Plato and Aristotle (how in the hell these works were lost, I have no idea).
- Averroes benevolently saved Europeans from the Dark Ages with secularism.
- The whistling bag-pipes so famously paraded around by the Scottish were gifts brought from Palestine to Europe by Crusaders (not the skirts though).
- If you graduated from a university with a degree, yell at the top of your lungs in laudatory homage to the Middle East! The first university granting degrees -which later spread to Europe- were started by Fatima al-Firhi.
- Holy Catholic rugs and beautiful portraits of Jesus in Holy sites have Arabic engravings.
- The concept of zero and Algebra’s creation by Al Khwarizmi in the Middle East influenced the works of Leonardo Da Vinci.
- Abbas ibn Firna actually created and attempted to fly with his own flying machine while Davinci lazily sketched such contraption.
- The astrolabe led to the compass and Al Biruni suggested the earth rotated on its own axis six centuries before Galileo.
- Every time a European drinks coffee they should thank Yemen while sipping with their recent thoughts of Anwar Al Awlaki.
- Al Biruni discussed the rotation of the earth’s axis six centuries before Galileo
- Al Razi first diagnosed measles and small pox while procuring its first remedies in the book often used by Europeans in the 16th century titled, Khitab Al Mansuri (tragically the indigenous of America were not ‘discovered’ by Muslims first).
- Ibn Sina’s works were required reading in Europe up to the seventeenth century and eventually led to the field of psychotherapy (the same field cocaine snorting and incest stigmatized Sigmund Freud excelled within).
- Ibn al-Nafis discovered the fundamentals of pulmonary circulation (this should be very beneficial since the rates of heart disease from obesity are high from Mac land in the West), Europe relied on Al Zahrawi’s book of surgery for 500 years.
- Muslim architecture in the form of ribbed vaults were employed in Europe.
- The world‘s earliest navigational and geographical charts were developed by Canaanites which Egyptians used to discover the Atlantic Ocean first.
- Ibn Battuta traveled to various countries and recorded his experiences in the first travel journal in history.
- Ahmed ibn Majid guided Vasco De Gama on his journeys with maps and instruments never seen by the latter (he could have been lost without such aid, just as Plato’s and Aristotle’s works).
- The book Al-Filahat by Ibn al-Awam was the most comprehensive agricultural book of its time which was translated into French and Spanish (I don’t know if it included marijuana).
- Peaches and apricots and most importantly olives were brought to Europe from the ME.
- Al-Haytham’s studies led to the creation of the microscope and telescope and photographic instruments.
- Al Fezari, Al Farghani, and Al Zarqali developed he works of Ptolemy to create the magnetic compass and chart the Zodiac constellation.
- The harp and drums and flute originated from the ME.
- The library was copied by Alexander the Great from Ashurbanipal and taken back to Greece.
- The first modern military and siege techniques were by the Assyrians.
- The first writing system and battery was in Iraq.
- The first code of laws by Hammurabi.
- The first empire by Sargon of Akkad.
- The first irrigation and sanitation system was in Pakistan/India.
- Yet hark lest we forget the most important; all monotheistic religion originates here in the Middle East!
What has Islam contributed to civilization in the Modern century, I retort to the west, Islam created YOU!!
Islamophobes such as Nick a dog’s fleas fantastically believe that many Muslims would quickly renounce Islam and suddenly see the pharisaical Western gift of secular light if oppressive Sharia laws or Muslim governments did not forbid or stymie such revelation. Vomit!! It is typical Western megalomaniac hubris and repulsive ignorance speaking! They in turn, point toward a dearth of asylee Muslims such as Imran Firasat and Nahla Mahmoud, who ‘have’ betrayed their religious identity by publicly announcing such, after being granted asylum in a wealthy Western nation- in exchange for pouring forth horrific exaggerated stories of tearful victimization as a Muslim-over swigs of alcohol and feigned comradery in the local pub. Their bigoted philanthropists which granted these apostates a new life, are determined to use this one or few examples as quintessential proof that Islam is evil.
However, if one were to foolishly ask the Sunnis and Shias in the ME if they desired to rebuke their religion, they would answer with a convinced and unanimous negation! I have lived in this region for more than five years without departure, I am certain of this claim. However, if you promised a visa to the West for apostasy, I would guarantee the percentage would be slightly higher. Every culture has a cowardly quisling class, an immoral house negro, whose unquenchable appetite for undeserved increased opportunity and uncontrollable greed exceed the natural human morality of loyalty to their own safe culture and unprostituted religion. These traitors comprise of a group which also apathetically ignores the true wealth of investing in the loving relationships and community of the humans surrounding them in exchange for a life of material wealth and privilege to be a bigot.
Nevertheless, the largest irony of it all, those quislings are never truly equal to the majority class they are engulfed within the West. Also the pioneers of Western Democratic propaganda persistently criticize Islam and the ME, granting asylum to a few Arabs they proudly herald around as a success of Democracy or Christianity or Atheism, yet when asked if more may share in the equality and privilege of the West, they quickly retort “NO!” If the West and its Democracy/Republicanism truly is for the benefit of humans across the world, toss of the refugees from Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Palestine created from the War Of Terrorism a visa and allow them to indulge in the valuable freedom and rights so beneficial to humankind under the rubric of Democracy/Republicanism. If the West is so concerned over the Zionists in Israel, welcome them to the shores of America instead of ethnically cleansing Palestinians and stealing the latter’s lands! Let me guess, the US has been accused of genocide against Native Americans and is being accused of funding genocide in Palestine but it is all just a farce coincidence. I aver hark! The Wes denies or overlooks Islamophobia because it targets and coerces moderate Muslims and apostates and more; to create that quisling class, a collaborator segment to fulfill its aspirations abroad. It is how empire runs its gears, it was the same in the archaic symbolism of treachery in Palatine Hill of Rome, as it is now. Yet, it’s not working.
The propaganda of the WOT along with its Islamophobic whores, also entails a childish manipulation and exaggeration of language, a focus on religious rhetoric, instead of acknowledging the real culprits behind the opposition to the West’s secular policies. I have thoroughly researched the propaganda of the West’s proclaimed extremist opposition such as Anwar Al Awlaki, YouTube accounts such as Jabhat Al Nusra, websites such AlBoraq, Inspire Magazine of Al Qaeda, watched Hezbollah on Al Manar television, interviewed Hamas members, and more. The vernacular of extremists is religion as with all humans when challenged with oppression (as with slaves who revolted against slavery), but the conflict is about power-not religion, survival- not dogma, opposition to injustice- not Sharia. The one thing that ‘all’ opposition to the West’s policies share across the world, extremist or non-extremist, is the West’s foreign policies. In the Middle East, it is the injustice in Palestine as a reason of xenophobia and aggression against the West.
You may say the West has invaded the Middle East in imperialist ambitions for oil. It is time to fight for our independence!
You may say the Christian Infidels have commenced a crusade against the Middle East for deflowering Islam. Allah commands their destruction!
Only a want of adequate brain cells could miss the message’s pith in both entirely, and despicably emphasize the minute difference in phatic communication. And for those who wish not attempt (such as Dawkins , Futile, and Nick), I personally believe to be a human Pharisee with phylacteries garments and wearing a crown of thorns with the head of a seraphic donkey! Excuse me, or Ape!
My question lingers. What honey is such propaganda mills as the Council of British Ex-Muslims and its philanthroper Richard Dawkins (ABUH) administering to those with newly acquired citizenship from political asylum for becoming non-believer as Nahla Mahmoud? What tangible incentive or valuable rewards are brib…excuse me, granted for them not only to condemn religious extremism (as if foreign voices with new citizenship is necessary for the world to know secular and religious extremism exist), but to deteriorate to the nadir of maligning their own religion on behest of a few horrible Muslims (every society in the world has bad people) and castigating the entire doctrine and its adherents as a monolithic hostile evil? Why is Nahla complaining about Sharia law in her home country of Sudan while touted around by her circus trainer Dawkins (ABUH) as a marvel, but not publicly shouting louder condemnations upon the horrible atrocities of the Christian Fundamentalist group, the Lord’s Resistance Army?
The authenticity and sincerity of Nahla’s seemingly altruistic pursuits has been tainted, if she comprehends or not, by the numerous titles in blog articles on Google. She is heralded around as a heroine for Islamophobes under the electronic banners of “Why Sharia has no Place,” “the Price Paid for Criticizing Islam,” “Update on Takfiri Threat” and other articles praising Atheism while simultaneously bashing all Muslims. Apparently, a single innocuously verbal threat from a Muslim saturates the internet with her name as if to punctuate, with an exclamation mark on the sentence, Islam is dangerous’!’ Why such melodramatic attention because of a single verbal threat!?
I’ve met seriously mentally damaged refugees whose loving spouses, relatives, and children have been viciously murdered. Their names also printed on existing black lists by extremists awaiting to immediately execute them if they risk a return to their home nation of Iraq or Syria, yet they remain languishing while anticipating several years to decades for an elusive visa. They suffer occasional direct threats to them in their place of refuge while some of their loved ones targeted and victimized in Syria or Iraq by the same authors of these blacklists out of vengeance. Why has ‘one’ single benign verbal threat against Nahla Mahmoud been graciously treated with more significance in the media than these innocent human victims!? Is it because these refugees are Muslims targeted by people from their own religion? Or is it she is saying the right things? Or possibly both? For Islamophobes, especially Dawkins (ABUH) who has an asphyxiation on honey (Honey Gate), it is understandable why he has pushed Nahla in the forefront of the media because her conversion to Atheism is an Islamophobe’s instrument to humiliate Islam. Or maybe Dawkins (ABU) was attracted to Nahla in consequence to the fact that her name in Arabic means a bumblebee.
Though I am suspicious of the ungossamer agenda and egalitarianism of England’s Council of Visa Applicants, I strongly condemn punishment for apostasy! My opinion is that It is the personal decision and right of every human to decide their beliefs and how they express them! Thus I applaud the honorable protection of those inalienable rights, and laud any appurtenance that benefits a victim of extremism! Nevertheless, I don’t approve of an exchange of a visa for launching a sinister campaign to smettle a religion on behest of a few bad apples, especially when there are much more suffering worse under secular dogma. It kind of eliminates the altruism of such a visa!
I must query, are there any available visas for the victims of Western military violence abroad? Is their recompense for Mosques vandalized in the West? Is there hope for Muslims wrongfully imprisoned for harmlessly playing paintball or for posting Facebook comments criticizing the War Of Terrorism or some other frivolous ambiguous Conspiracy to Commit terrorism farce charge!? Anything that would help counter the extremist propaganda that the West has declared a war upon Islam and Muslims?! For every Malala Yousafzai and Sushmita Banerjee, there are thousands of Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabis and Nabila Rehmans! Do Islamophobes such as Dawkins (ABUH), Nick a prostitute’s donkey, Futile Billy much dumba##-mates know a single name of an Iraqi, Afghani, or Palestinian victimized by rape , false imprisonment, torture, rendition, or dead from US bombs and depleted uranium bullets? Has the four year old Shakira in Pakistan received more than surgery or celebrity status as a Malalai Joya or granted a visa like the British Council of Visa Applicants? I personally have multitudes of files of Iraqi refugees with a hundred times worse stories than those of the preceding council’s, who are still helplessly lingering in limbo awaiting a visa, and I would like to quickly submit them to the Visa Council and Dawkins (ABUH) if they be brave and honest enough to meet my challenge! But of course not!! We wouldn’t want to question the legitimacy of the War OF Terrorism? Let’s focus on the religious and atheist rhetoric, it seems to work well now in Plato’s Cave 🙂 May we also provide a visa or celebrity status, or just equal media attention, for the following innocent victims of secular terrorism?
And honestly…I am utterly exhausted and disgusted to incomprehension-after viewing and reading the above- that I have decided to stop here. I can’t take anymore! Where is the celebrity statuses and visas for these innocent humans, victimized by the secular West’s actions and decisions in the WOT? Has the West, religious and atheist, no heart? Have we no sense of justice or love for humanity? Has bigotry blinded us to the crimes of the century? Have we lost our compassion, sense of justice, and benevolence? I feel some have the hearts, minds, and morals to feel the preceding. And others, without a sense of dignity, add insult to the library of injury with marginalizing Islamophobia, a propaganda technique instilled into the minds of average human intellect as Plato’s Cave, completing some nightmarish abomination of a Don Quixote plot in the archaic evil versus good preposterousness which is spitting lava at humanity. As the massive and incomplete list of videos above show, the Nahla Mahmouds and other victims of Islamic extremism are the equivalent of a Hippopotamus in the corner of a cage, attempting to eat a single pea. It makes great entertainment for a circus.
Therefore I am uninclined to believe Islamophobes such as Nick Dawkins and Futile in a monajuata,’s claims that the civilian casualties of Shias, Sunnis, and Christians in the ME justifies the blatantly provocative, bigoted, and demeaning attacks upon Islam in consideration of the circumstances above. I am not aware Islamophobes sincerely care for dead Muslims. Sorry. The WOT is based on a secular fundamentalism that has invaded countries and created more innocent victims than religious fundamentalism; yet claims the latter is more dangerous because the vernacular is more archaic. I think I can imagine how the indigenous of America felt in regards to language barriers and maniacal European hubris. I would rather ask someone to please inject a falafal sandwich dipped in leukemia up the hairy ape-like posterior of the bigoted WOT harlot, Richard Dawkins (ABUH).
(*By the way ‘Nick’ in Arabic means f##k. Put it together above*)
What is the total cost for the entire War of Terrorism now?
The 9-11 attacks cost $100,000,000,000 and 2,996 lives
The West’s reaction:
Al Qaeda is no longer threat, a more dangerous and stronger ISIS is now costing $20,000,000,000 to fight annually and there are 3,000,000 Syrian refugees w/o a home, job, security, or citizenship.
Afghanistan cost $657,000,000,000 with 3,372 soldiers and 20,000 civilians dead and over 3,000,000,000 refugees w/o a home, job, security, or citizenship.
Iraq cost $814,000,000,000 and 4,804 soldiers and 130,000 civilian lives. 4,000,000 refugees w/o a home, job, security, or citizenship.
Drone strikes cost 4,000 civilian lives
The economic market detrimentally affected by 1.9 trillion dollars
1 trillion dollars and extra security measures and applying embargoes
$2,000,000,000 for Libya and between 5,000 and 20,000 civilian lives and 2,000,000 Libyan refugees w/o a home, job, security, or citizenship
Each American family owes the government $70,000
American civil rights have been repressed
Innocent Muslim Americans convicted of ambiguous Conspiracy to Commit Terrorism charges with evidence such as Facebook comments criticizing US foreign policy
Rise of atheism and Islamophobia and distrust in Western governments
Proliferation of sectarian violence in the Middle East.
The above conflicts are still ongoing and do not include internally displaced refugees
Comparative Analysis Between Mein Kampf and the Quran
Portuguese – “Vou-te cagar na boca.”
Another defender of Dawkins (ABUH) is a pen name, Humanisticus, at Skeptic Ink. Let’s address his defense as well 🙂
Islamic fundamentalism is one of the greatest threats to free speech and expression there is. It is not the only threat, nor might it be the greatest; however, it is the only threat which when criticized are people accused of racism/bigotry/Islamophobia. ”
I retort to Humanisticus’ and other Islamophobes’ aplomb that they have ‘some’ truth in that religious fundamentalism is an infrequent nuisance to free expression. Yet, I would generously append not just religious fundamentalism, but ‘fundamentalism’ period. No one with stable mind would vainly attempt to argue with that funambulism. I wish to gratuitously identify a more mendacious micrococcus, secular fundamentalism, the extreme belief that:
Modernization by the ends justify the means foreign imperial formula of invasions into other countries to provide the economic market and consequent hedonism domestic citizens indulge in modern nations, is more valuable than religion’s theorem that we are all equally valuable humans in this world and should be treated as such. Billions in the third world live a barely sufficient existence , if not starving to death, while awaiting succor only to discover Smith’s invisible hand!!
A secular nation’s constituents are inherently more moral and intelligent and thus superior than religious constituents of a secular nation and more superior and more valuable than 3rd world human lives. Such secular fundamentalism posits that Western values of modernity – political and economic- are the sole heuristics, the only ones, that procure human happiness or provides a functionally equal society, a civilized society. It also posits that world achievement alone is measured by GDP and the size of market economies and the standard of living in a few modernized countries, not by political and economic equality or parity in living standards of the majority of the world’s population in the third world with those of industrialized nations.
And criticism of the state and nationalism is more seditious and dangerous than against a religion. And nations who disagree with the above fundamental Western formula are despots or tyrants, and the groups of people that disdain such maniacal hubris and unjust inequality , are terrorists.
My consternation with the appellation ‘religious fundamentalism’ is that the preceding is an often innocuous lifestyle (closed-off communities, pulpit speeches, etc. ), does provide benefits (community aid, volunteerism, rehabilitation of criminals, lower drug and adultery and crime rates, etc.), and the term ‘religious fundamentalism’ omits other dogmas such as Western fundamental secularism which can be occasionally more perilous. I have conversated with many religious fundamentalists whose close-minded and narrow lifestyle venture to the limits of absurdity and nerve-racking annoyance, rather than violence to enforce their perspective upon society. Yet I tolerate them as they with me!
In regards to the rising tide of violence we witness from religious fundamentalists today. Human nature responds,-whether religious or secular – to any perceived encroachment are attack on their lifestyles, autonomy, and principles the same; resistance by either non-violence or violence. It’s unfair to label all religious fundamentalists as potentially dangerous or sharing equally exaggerated characteristics. Just as it is so to brush all secularists as secular fundamentalists. Before bashing religion or emphasizing that religious fundamentalism is the threat, we should first question the benefits of secularism today. Or its failures:
High divorce rates.
High rates of sexual disease and adultery.
High alcohol and drug abuse.
High crime and incarceration rates.
Before one judges religion or religious fundamentalism, one should highlight the major flaws of secular society itself. Both secularism and religion are two hands, and society best claps with both moving. The former were either removed or utterly failed in the nation-building of the West in the Middle East, therein lays religious fundamental’s proliferation.
Dogma is the incunabulum that creates fundamentalism, but it also can lead to pragmatism. Any dogma in its pristine state is rather acarpous, yet when applied impractically in a fundamental manner, oppressive. When avarice takes the reins of any fundamentalism, it is not fundamentalism anymore, but a Bucephalus of empires – imperialism! A secular government or society is ‘practically’ religious, but it does not rid humans of the dangers of which many other ‘impractical’ dogma may be applied, it only safeguarded us from one, religious fundamentalism. The WOT is in fact, secular fundamentalism transformed into imperialism, which when juxtaposed next to Islamic fundamentalism, is a far graver stygian danger to humanity. To vellicate everyone, we do not live in an era of religious imperialism, it’s Western secular imperialism which has wreaked havoc in this tragic century! Thus, I am disinclined to abuse a term ‘religious fundamentalism’ that is currently being insouciantly employed by WOT fundamentalists who upbraid religious dogma in their logomachy cockamachy, while being unfair in criticizing that which created their own abominations- secular dogma!
Furthermore, Humanisticus is entirely erroneous in his analysis of “it is the only threat which when criticized are people accused of racism/bigotry/Islamophobia.” If one criticizes Monarchy/Republicanism/Democracy – the WOT- than one is stigmatized and ostracized de facto as anti-Western or if Muslim, a terrorist. And if one scrutinizes Capitalism, one is a Communist. In addition, every single critic of Dawkins (ABUH) has accused him of bigotry, and that includes the Christian, Protestant, Jewish denominations AND atheists. Punch “Dawkins (ABUH) is a bigot” in Google and you will discover a religious and secular eclectic conglomeration of sound-minded bloggers labeling him a bigot, racist, and worse. Not for what he said about Muslims, but for Dawkins (ABUH) unfairly targeting fundamentalist and practical dogma practitioners alike.
Humanisticus’ defense of Dawkins is like astonishingly and pitifully staring at a cadging hustler doing his or her darnest to claim the car directly in front of you is actually a chimpanzee! Some are lost for words, and others write a literary tazor of reality. Yes, pretty much everyone calls Dawkins (ABUH) a bigot and racist, not just Muslims and not just for his comments on Islam 🙂 However, as shown above in the massive quotes I listed which I will list again here, his comments are much harsher upon Islam, which he shamelessly admits, and without evidence. Doesn’t sound rational or logical, does it? To cozenly make such leaping conclusions without evidence!
As one Catholic blogger stated, “The guy has lost it. Dawkins has finally, irrevocably crossed the line from “trenchant critic of religion and champion of atheism” to “drooling nutjob thousand-mile-staring hatemonger RARRAAR RELIGION RRARARARA”. He has become the thing he hates (I seem to remember Nietzsche having something to say about that.)”
Here is another incomplete list of Dawkins’ (ABUH) quotes on Islam:
“Haven’t read Koran so couldn’t quote chapter & verse like I can for the Bible. But often say Islam greatest force for evil today.”
“One of the great evils in the world.”
“Who the hell do these Muslims think they are?”
“This is a Christian country…You cannot understand the English language unless you read the Bible.”
“The Christian religions, especially the Anglican religion, is benign by comparison…Imperatively benign.”
(I don’t think Dawkins’ read the Christian Bible either)
“Mehdi Hasan admits to believing Muhamed [sic] flew to heaven on a winged horse. And New Statesman sees fit to print him as a serious journalist.”
“Of course you can have an opinion about Islam without having read Qur’an. You don’t have to read Mein Kampf to have an opinion about Nazism.”
According to Jones, Dawkins stated the following:
“Islam is the Trojan Horse in Europe,” he declares, warning it would mean “the end of European and Dutch civilisation as we know it.” He made a short film, Fitna, which portrays Muslims as inherently violent because of their religion. Here is a man who should be damned by all tolerant people. But Dawkins wrote: “Geert Wilders, if it should turn out that you are a racist or a gratuitous stirrer and provocateur I withdraw my respect, but on the strength of Fitna alone I salute you as a man of courage, who has the balls to stand up to a monstrous enemy.”
“That was unfortunate. I should have compared religion with religion and compared Islam not with Trinity College but with Jews, because the number of Jews who have won Nobel Prizes is phenomenally high.”
“Race does not come into it. It is pure religion and culture. Something about the cultural tradition of Jews is way, way more sympathetic to science and learning and intellectual pursuits than Islam. That would have been a fair comparison. Ironically, I originally wrote the tweet with Jews and thought, That might give offense. And so I thought I better change it.”
Under the circumstances in regards to the WOT, part of such preceding machination’s propaganda of marginalizing dissent while simultaneously oiling the gears of its foreign policy, is to silence the detrimental psychological effects such a war on an ideology has upon the civilian population and highlight its positive effects, consequently stifling the voices of oppression from verbal affidavits by the minority Muslim communities across the world. I would concur with Humanicitus, Dawkins (ABUH), Nick Dawkins in the rear, and Futile bugger, and other Islamophobes who dissemble their hatred of Muslims by the nostrum of being champions of freedom, probably even be their ally in such a pursuit of freedom; had not rationale, logic, and pragmatism- the very traits absent in fundamentalism- compelled me to respect concrete evidence and undeniable facts before forming such callous hyperboles and immature generalizations.
The irrefutable and inconvertible facts by various secular government and religious agencies is, Islamophobia is having a huge detrimental effect upon the Muslim minority populations across the globe. And consequently destroying Western society from within. The WOT’s injection of this psychosomatic fear- an unreasonable paranoia with equally devastating concocted dictums of the compassionless and inhuman terrorist versus the freedom loving and human fighter- produce innocent victims labeled as unfortunate collateral damage in the pursuit of this ghostly evil. This propaganda has also birthed bastard Islamophobes such as Dawkins (ABUH). Perhaps his ignorance and gullibleness for the many imbroglios is true, or it is feigned for opportunistic ambitions. Nevertheless, it is very apparent that his attention along with others is regulated or influenced by this same desiradtum of cleansing the world of evil, which reflects his own folly in rational and logical thinking. His rhetoric is imbibed with irrational generalizations of the scary boogey man, transparently inauthentic regurgitations of the WOT’s canards! Some of us adolescents recollect the truth behind Santa Claus, Peter Pan, Easter bunny, and more. Dawkins (ABUH) , Nick, Humanisticus, Futile never experienced this revelation yet. Ask all of them on their stance for the hypocritical legitimacy on the War OF Terrorism and their demarcation line on the fictional narrative for the legitimacy of Israel. I have suspicion they are oxymorons, atheists who support the ‘Jewish State’ of Israel.
Mandarin: “Wo cao ni ba bei zi zu zong.”
Humanisticus posited, “I challenge anybody to find me a sentence, passage, chapter, idea, tenet in Mein Kampf that repulses them which similarly can’t be found in the Qur’an (or the bible for that matter). The only difference is one book is treated with contempt while the other is used as the moral guiding principles for over 1.5 billion Muslims.”
I take Humanisticus’ challenge of juxtaposing the Quran and Mein Kemp! His droll thinking adumbrates that both books led to the mass slaughter of innocent humans, so this concludes the ullage. I reverse this gross generalized simplification. Find me ONE verse in Mein Kempf, or word and act by Adolf Hitler, that demonstrated tolerance for Jews and disbelievers in his version of the blasphemous Christian religion, like verses in the Quran and in the prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) words and acts? Let us venture upon that ambition now.
TREATMENT OF JEWS BY THE PROPHET MOHAMMED (PBUH)
Concern for Welfare of Jews
Upon learning of the sickness of his Jewish neighbor, Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] paid him a visit. During the visit the Prophet [peace and blessings be upon him] asked the young man to accept Islam. The young man looked at his father for a permission. The father assented and the young man accepted Islam. (See Sahih Bukhari, Tradition Number 1356).
In another example, a young Jewish boy used to serve the Prophet and he became sick, and so the Prophet went to visit him in concern for his health. In another incident, a funeral of a Jew passed before the Prophet (peace be upon him). As a sign of respect, the Prophet stood up. The Prophet was asked “Why did you stand up for a Jewish funeral?” The Prophet replied, “Is he not a human soul?” Sahih Bukhari, Tradition Number 1311
Loved by Certain Jews
For several days, at the outskirts of Medina, awaiting eagerly the arrival of Prophet Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him] and his companion from Makkah, was a small group of Muslims. Also nearby was a Jew, Abdullah Bin Salaam, picking dates off a palm tree with his aunt on the ground assisting him. Abdullah was in a better position to spot the incoming caravan from a far distance. Therefore, he was the first to see the Prophet [peace and blessings be upon him] and his companion coming. Upon this, he became overwhelmed with excitement, calling loudly, “Muhammad has arrived, God is great!” Upon this, his aunt told him to quiet down saying, “If he was Moses son of Imran, you would not have shouted as loud.” Abdullah responded, “Oh my aunt by Allah, he is (only) the brother of Moses, son of Imran.” She asked, “Is he the expected Prophet we have been told about (in the Torah)? He said, “Yes”. (See A. Alhalabi, Alsirah Alhalabiyah, Volume 2, page 121.)
Forgiveness and Compassion for Jews
It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had a Jewish neighbor who used to throw garbage everyday in front of his door, but when the Prophet saw no trash one day, he went to visit him only to discover that he was sick, so the prophet cared for him. In another example, in order to show his nearness to the Jews, the Prophet married Safiyyah bint Huyay, daughter of the chief of the Jewish tribe of Banu An-Nadir.
Tolerance and Protection for Disbelievers
“Whoever kills a person who has a truce with the Muslims will never smell the fragrance of Paradise.” (Saheeh Muslim)
Compassion and Mercy for Disbelievers
He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully. (Muslim, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 42)
Tolerance for Disbelievers Even in the Face of Offense
A disbelieving Bedouin urinated in the mosque, and the people rushed to beat him. Allah’s Apostle ordered them to leave him, let him finish and pour a bucket or a tumbler (full) of water over the place where he has passed urine. The Prophet then explained to the Bedouin calmly, “This is a place of worship, in it is the worship of God and the reading of Qur’an.” After the Bedouin had left, the Prophet then said to his companions, ” You have been sent to make things easy (for the people) and you have not been sent to make things difficult for them.” (Muslim, Book 2, Number 559 and Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 149)
Protection of Jews
No Jew is to be annoyed because of their Judaic faith. Mu’adh ibn Jabal
Tolerance, Protection, and Respect for Disbelievers
“He who believes in God and the Last Day should honour his guest, should not harm his neighbor, should speak good or keep quiet.” (Bukhari, Muslim)
“Whoever hurts a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state hurts me, and he who hurts me annoys God.” (Bukhari)
“He who hurts a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state, I am his adversary, and I shall be his adversary on the Day of a Judgment.” (Bukhari)
Love, Respect, Protection, Tolerance, and Equality for Christians
Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) to Monks of Saint Catherine in Mount Sinai, “as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity, far and near, we are behind them. Verily, I defend them by myself, the servants, the helpers, and my followers, because Christians are my citizens; and by Allah! I hold out against anything that displeases them. No compulsion is to be on them. Neither are their judges to be changed from their jobs, nor their monks from their monasteries. No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the Muslims’ houses. Should anyone take any of these, he would spoil God’s covenant and disobey His Prophet. Verily, they (Christians) are my allies and have my secure charter against all that they hate. No one is to force them to travel or to oblige them to fight. The Muslims are to fight for them. If a female Christian is married to a Muslim, this is not to take place without her own wish. She is not to be prevented from going to her church to pray. Their churches are to be respected. They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants. No one of the nation is to disobey this covenant till the Day of Judgment and the end of the world.”
Equality Between Muslims and Disbelievers
“Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.” (Abu Dawud)
The Acts of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) Which Demonstrated Equality and Tolerance for Disbelievers and Jews
In one incident, a company of Muslims falsely accused a Jew of a crime. He exonerated the Jew, publicly scolded the plaintiffs for accusing one of a crime solely because of their religion, and punished those Muslims. In another incident, the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) ordered all Muslims to celebrate the Exodus of Moses’ and the Jews triumphant escape from the Pharaoh of Egypt, he also suspected many assassination attempts by Jews but never took revenge on suspicion alone, and despite the fact that he felt the Jews violated the compact between them and the Muslims, he continued to respect the Constitution of Medina which called for equality between all.
Tolerance for Disbelievers and Other Religions
2:62 Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.
109:1-6 Say: O unbelievers! I do not serve that which you serve, Nor do you serve Him Whom I serve: Nor am I going to serve that which you serve, Nor are you going to serve Him Whom I serve: You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion
Forgiveness and Respect for Hostile Jews and Christians
The Qur’an mentions that some groups of Jews and Christians wish for the destruction of Muslim nations. Toward them, the Qur’an instructs, “Forgive and show indulgence to them…Whosoever surrendereth his purpose to God while doing good, his reward is with his Lord; and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve” (2:109-112)
Tolerance for Disbelievers
In another chapter, the Qur’an deals with situations where Muslims might feel hatred toward Non-Muslim groups. Again, the message is patience and justice. God says, “Do not allow your hatred of a folk who [once] stopped your going to the Inviolable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgression, but keep your duty to God” (5:2).
Tolerance and Love for other Believers
The Qur’an goes further than religious freedom, instructing Muslims to show tolerance and respect to other religions. The verse, “Do not revile those unto whom they pray beside God, lest they wrongfully revile God through ignorance” (6:108)
“Help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty.”(Qur’an, 5:2)
Tolerance for Disbelievers and Believers Who refuse Proselytization to Islam
3:159. And by the Mercy of God, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh-hearted, they would have ran away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (God’s) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).
Tolerance and Respect During War
“Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loveth not aggressors.” (Qur’an, 2:190)
Tolerance for the Beliefs and Rituals of Believers and Disbelievers
Once the people of Mecca said to Prophet Muhammad that if god did not want them to worship idols then why doesn’t he forcefully prevent them from doing so. Then God sent the following message:
“(O Muhammad) This is not a new excuse; those who lived before, they made, the same excuses. Is there anything upon the messengers except conveying of the message”. (16: 35).
Manner of Proselytization
Were Moses, Jesus and Muhammad ordered by the Almighty to impose their teachings upon the people by sword? Absolutely not! Look at the Qur’an, the holy scripture of Islam; the revealed words of God where he clearly outlines the duty of his messengers by saying:
“(And as for My messenger,) there is no (obligation) on him except to deliver (the. message). God knows what you expose and conceal”. (5:99).
“But if the people turn away then do not be sad because we sent you to be a guardian over them. It is for you only to deliver the message.” (42:43).
Can we find similar pages of benevolence and good treatment and tolerance toward Jews, non-Germans, or non-believers in Main Kampf or in Hitler’s individual acts or words outside of his book? Find ONE thing positive! There isn’t, I read Mein Kempf in High School as a project. Hitler equates Jews as disbelievers, unlike the Quran and the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) who admit that Jews are believers. What else? Hitler asserts that Jews are not a religion, but a race. Interesting since Dawkins (ABUH) likes to use the example of Mein Kampf to compare with the Bible and Quran and he has been quoted as stating Judaism is a religion, not a race.
The Jew has always been a people with definite racial characteristics and never a religion.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Due to his own original special nature, the Jew cannot possess a religious institution, if for no other reason because he lacks idealism in any form, and hence belief in a hereafter is absolutely foreign to him.
And a religion in the Aryan sense cannot be imagined which lacks the conviction of survival after death in some form.
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) declare Jews a race, not a religion?
Indeed, the Talmud is not a book to prepare a man for the hereafter, but only for a practical and profitable life in this world.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) insult the Holy Books of any religion including Jews, even to such length as declaring it as a book to prepare a human for worldly desires solely?
The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) declare that Disbelievers or Jews are symbols of evil or the personification of the devil? Does either claim Jews or disbelievers are being manipulated by evil and the devil, to do bad deeds?
The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people. (Book 1 Chap 11)
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) demand racial purity amongst Muslims or contrive characteristics of a philanderer or adulterer to Jews or disbelievers?
If we consider how greatly he has sinned against the masses in the course of the centuries, how he has squeezed and sucked the blood again and again; if furthermore, we consider how the people gradually learned to hate him for this, and ended up by regarding his existence as nothing but punishment of Heaven for the other peoples, we can understand how hard this shift must be for the Jew.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) declare a certain race or disbelievers or believers as innately thieves or diminishing the existence of any of the aforementioned as solely punishment from heaven? Is there salvation for a Jew or disbeliever according to the Quran?
Of course, the latter made no secret of his attitude toward the Jewish people, and when necessary he even took the whip to drive from the temple of the Lord this adversary of all humanity, who then as always saw in religion nothing but an instrument for his business existence. In return, Christ was nailed to the cross, while our present-day party Christians debase themselves to begging for Jewish votes at elections and later try to arrange political swindles with atheistic Jewish parties– and this against their own nation.
-Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) assign the responsibility of crucifying Jesus to the Jews? Do the former or latter claim that the prophet Jesus was adamantly opposed to the Jews? Do the former or latter claim that Jews are naturally perfidious?
For us, this is not a problem you can turn a blind eye to-one to be solved by small concessions. For us, it is a problem of whether our nation can ever recover its health, whether the Jewish spirit can ever really be eradicated. Don’t be misled into thinking you can fight a disease without killing the carrier, without destroying the bacillus. Don’t think you can fight racial tuberculosis without taking care to rid the nation of the carrier of that racial tuberculosis. This Jewish contamination will not subside, this poisoning of the nation will not end, until the carrier himself, the Jew, has been banished from our midst. D Irving, The War Path: Hitler’s Germany 1933-1939. Papermac, 1978, p.xxi
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) disclude compromise or cooperation and peace with any Jew or disbeliever or believer? Do the former and latter demand the eradication of Jews or disbelievers or believers? Do the former or latter describe Jews or disbelievers or believers as a disease?
“If I am ever really in power, the destruction of the Jews will be my first and most important job. As soon as I have power, I shall have gallows after gallows erected, for example, in Munich on the Marienplatz-as many of them as traffic allows. Then the Jews will be hanged one after another, and they will stay hanging until they stink. They will stay hanging as long as hygienically possible. As soon as they are untied, then the next group will follow and that will continue until the last Jew in Munich is exterminated. Exactly the same procedure will be followed in other cities until Germany is cleansed of the last Jew!” (quoted in John Toland, Adolf Hitler. London: Book Club Associates, 1977, p.116)
“We swear we are not going to abandon the struggle until the Last Jew in Europe has been exterminated and is actually dead. It is not enough to isolate the Jewish enemy of mankind-the Jew has got to be exterminated.” (Trial of the Major War Criminals Before the International Military Tribunal, Vol.3, Nuremberg, 1947, p. 36)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) explicitly attribute as its first priority, the total extermination of a race, Jew, believer, or disbeliever?
“Why does the world shed crocodile’s tears over the richly merited fate of a small Jewish minority? … I ask Roosevelt, I ask the American people: Are you prepared to receive in your midst these well-poisoners of the German people and the universal spirit of Christianity? We would willingly give everyone of them a free steamer-ticket and a thousand-mark note for travelling expenses, if we could get rid of them.” (Quoted in N H Baynes, The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, Oxford University Press, 1942, Volume I, pp.727-28)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) proclaim to not show compassion for Jews, disbelievers, or believers?
“Anti-Semitism is the unifying element of the reconstruction of Germany.”
(Referred to at the Trial of the Major War Criminals Before the International Military Tribunal, Vol.3, Nuremberg, 1947, p. 35)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) declare that the hatred of one specific race or believer or disbeliever is the unifying element of Islam?
… the Jews who formed less than one per cent. of the population tried to monopolize the cultural leadership of the people and flooded the intellectual professions, such as, for example, jurisprudence and medicine. The influence of this intellectual Jewish class in Germany had everywhere a disintegrating effect . For this reason in order to bar the spread of this process of disintegration it became essential to take steps to establish a clear and clean separation between the two races.(Interview with Mr. Baillie of the United Press, quoted in N H Baynes, The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, Oxford University Press, 1942, Volume I, pp.732)
“When the question is still put to us why National Socialism fights with such fanaticism against the Jewish element in Germany, why it pressed and still presses for its removal then the answer can only be: Because National Socialism desires to establish a true community of the people…. Because we are National Socialists we can never suffer an alien race which has nothing to do with us to claim the leadership of our working people.” (Adolf Hitler, quoted in N H Baynes, The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, Oxford University Press, 1942, Volume I, pp.735)
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) promote segregation between races or believers or disbelievers? Or the mandatory expulsion of the aforementioned ‘alien’ categories ?
“So, we are now going to have a total solution to the Jewish question. The programme is clear. It reads: total separation, total segregation! What does this mean? It does not only mean the total exclusion of the Jews from the German economic system… It means much more! No German can be expected to live under the same roof as Jews. The Jews must be chased out of our houses and our residential districts and made to live in rows or blocks of houses where they can keep to themselves and come into contact with Germans as little as possible. They must be clearly identified…. And when we compel the rich Jews to provide for the `poor’ of their race, which will certainly be necessary, they will all sink together into a pit of criminality. As this happens, we will be faced with the harsh necessity of eradicating the Jewish underworld, just as we root out criminals from our own orderly state: with fire and sword. The result will be the certain and absolute end of Jewry in Germany; its complete annihilation!” [Source: Benno Müller-Hill. Murderous Science. New York: CSHL Press, 1998, p.48]
Hitler’s Speech to the Reichstag, 30 January, 1939:
Keeping in mind the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) had many Jewish neighbors, does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) demand the segregation of Jews or believers or disbelievers out of the neighborhoods of Muslims? Do the former and latter demand exclusion from economic trade?
“Europe cannot find peace until the Jewish question has been solved. …One thing I should like to say on this day [the sixth anniversary of his being appointed Chancellor of the Reich] which may be memorable for others as well as for us Germans. In the course of my life I have very often been a prophet and have usually been ridiculed for it. … Today I will once more be a prophet: if the international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshivization of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe.”
Hitler’s Table Talk, October 1941
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) proclaim that world peace cannot be ascertained unless all of Jews or believers or disbelievers are eliminated from the face of the earth? And by the way, there is no damn way God made Adolf Hitler a prophet!
“From the rostrum of the Reichstag, I prophesied to Jewry that, in the event of war’s proving inevitable, the Jew would disappear from Europe. That race of criminals has on its conscience the two million dead of the First World War, and now already hundreds and thousands more. Let nobody tell me that all the same we can’t park them in the marshy parts of Russia! Who’s worrying about our troops? It’s not a bad idea, by the way, that public rumor attributes to us a plan to exterminate the Jews. Terror is a salutary thing.” (quoted in John Toland, Adolf Hitler. London: Book Club Associates, 1977, p.702-3)
Speech by Hans Frank, Governor General of the General Government, Poland, April 12, 1940
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) offer to pay any nation money to transfer Jew or believer or disbeliever to another land?
If the authority of the National-Socialist Reich is to be upheld, then it is unacceptable that representatives of the Reich should be obliged to meet Jews when they enter or leave the house, and are in this way liable to infection with epidemics. [I] therefore [intend] to clear the city of Cracow [the seat of the Governor-General of the General Government] of Jews, as far as at all possible, by November 1, 1940. There will be a major operation to move the Jews, on the grounds that it is absolutely intolerable that thousands upon thousands of Jews should go slinking around and occupy apartments in the city which the Führer has granted the great honor of becoming the seat of a high Reich Authority… [Source: Y Arad, et.al. Documents on the Holocaust. London: Pergamon Press, 1981,pp.197-98]
Does the Quran or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) prohibit the close contact or friendly greeting of Jews or believers or disbelievers?
The above clearly demonstrates fallacious reasoning – because one observation may be questionably true in two objects, then both are the same. It is becoming an exhausting to witness Islamophobes and more dogmatic pirarucus, formulate generalizations with gross exaggerations engendered with inaccurate facts from history. Mein Kampf and religious texts have huge and noticeable differences. Cherry picking a modicum of similarities to suit one’s own baseless over focus or misfocus mistaking it as apercus despite apparent refutations, doesn’t make it right. But it is one’s prerogative, and freedom to be stupid. Some make such gross generalizations as Humanisticus because the initial shock from hearing such an shocking statement, may preclude others to investigate, yet when people do, they discover its seemingly dangerous veracity is benign, within a time frame equivalent to the Anglo Zanzibar War.
“So Dawkins wasn’t talking about all Muslims, he was clearly discussing those who tried to segregate the sexes at the UCL debate. As for Jones’ little test, yes, I am very comfortable. If Jewish people were segregating the sexes then I would have no issue with a sentence reading “who do these Jews think they are segregating the sexes at a UCL debate”.
One problem I have with the above is the depiction of the scenario is inaccurate. What in fact occurred at the US London event was the participants voluntarily concurred with a request that they be seated in an educational atmosphere according to their gender, with women in the front, and men in the back. Who benefits in the preceding’s scenario? And those who wished to mix, male and female, in their own section. Therefore , not restricting the freedom of choice for Muslim women to practice their orthodox beliefs of being segregated according to gender while simultaneously not infringing upon the rights of others who desired the contrary. I find that equality, multi-culturalism, tolerance- not discrimination! In fact, the whole debacle became such only when three rude atheists purposely insisted upon sitting with the Muslim women, against the latter’s protests. I find that restricting the female’s freedom of choice – sort of like forcing women to wear or not wear certain religious attire- and I find it unwonted sexual harassment, not chivalry nor freedom! I understand why the likes of Dawkins (ABUH) , Futile, Nick, and Humanisticus would endeavor o label it infringement of freedom, they demand the right to be obnoxious, stupid, and bigoted!
One Muslim female at the event stated:
“As a woman, I should have the choice who I choose to mix with. The organizers were accommodating to all – for those who wanted to sit separately, and for those who wanted to sit together. During the event, 2 men demanded to sit in the women’s section in between the women, after much discussion, the organizers cleared space for them to sit – (there were so many rows), while still trying to respect the position of the women who had requested to be seated separately. A man in particular demanded to sit in between the women in order to ‘challenge their beliefs’. How is this being tolerant? The men were intimidating and the organizers spoke in length to the individuals before asking them to leave as they showed complete disrespect.”
The ridiculous infantile whining about the above event is akin to the politicization of feminism toward the War OF Terrorism. The hijab,abiya, and burkha are in case no longer the freedom of choice in post-9/11 for a Muslim woman’s attire. Virulent feminists who have enjoined in the WOT propaganda declares such garments as an instrument of male oppression against the helpless Muslim damsel in indoctrinated or coerced distress. A Don Quixote chivalry derived from emetic European and American false hubris superiority complex. A storyline akin to a version of Roland’s Song.
As a liberal Muslim, I condemn Muslim families who force women to wear or do something against the latter’s will. Yet, I also remain adamantly opposed to coercing a female with “you must not wear” this! Paramount is freedom of choice, anything else is a racist and bigoted Turkey dressed under Democratic or Monarchial guise of a thanksgiving table of hypocrisy!! Do Islamophobes realize that forcing -by any excuse-a Muslim women to not wear certain clothes entailing religious identity in the post-9/11 world, is like demanding women to not wear crucifixes. It is oppression the same, an article of clothing or jewelry has been politicized to restrict the freedom of choice. Perhaps we should force the Queen of England to wear a thong or reconstruct the Statue of Liberty without clothes!!
What was Dawkins’ (ABUH) reply to this frivolous shenanigan?
“At UC London debate between a Muslim and Lawrence Krauss, males & females had to sit separately. Krauss threatened to leave.”
He also tweeted:
“Who do these Muslims think they are?”
For Dawkins, it probably is of no consequence nor manner of etiquette, since all of us Muslims are the same for him, that the ‘Muslim’ he is referring to in the preceding post has a name, Hamza Andreas Tzortzis. The latter gentleman is a host of several charities including a program to battle domestic violence in Muslim communities, publicly condemns terrorism, raises money to donate to Great Ormond Street Hospitalin order to cure childhood illnesses which he also visits 200,000 times a year , contributes to a blood drive, and hosts programs for the elderly and poor. What contributions does Dawkins and his futile idiots provide to their communities but hate? When one fails to discover the Terrorist, pick the next convenient target, a moderate and community oriented productive Muslim of the community. Or any Muslim for that matter! I personally don’t judge others based on religion, race, nationality,etc. I judge them upon their merits as a contribution for the community, and I judge them individually.
Here is Tzortzis’ reply on his website to the incident:
“There have been various newspapers and bloggers that have implied that Hamza Andreas Tzortzis has been involved in public events that have enforced gender segregation or separation. Tzortzis has not been involved in such events or been aware of enforced gender separation. He advocates a tolerant position that all choices should be offered. If some women regardless of religious background wish to sit with women only, that should be accommodated if possible.”
In retort to the primordial ascus Dawkins’ tweet, we Muslims think we are humans with equal rights imbibed with the right to choose what to wear/not wear, and where to sit/not sit, to be modest/not modest; without verbal or physical harassment for being us. In what tight sulcus of Dawkins’ primitive brain this dictum of egalitarian freedom was lost, is indeed a labyrinth mystery moreso than his viscusless work God’s Delusion. Even God allows us to be ourselves and the way our creator composed us, what succor does dogmatic atheism offer? Let me guess,a rogue Arcus Dawkins, for Ape’s sake!! Who does this ginch Ape worshipper think he is!?
If the circus of Dawkins (ABUH), Futile wazzack, Nick a dog, and Humanisticus are analogous to segregation; why bash voluntary segregation at a lecture? Why not courageously tackle the policies of racial segregation and poverty occurring in secular consequence of urban sprawls in such areas as Oldham, Blackburn, and Bradford in the UK? And why not a single caustic tweet of conquering the most heinously dangerous and the last abomination of apartheid and segregation today, Israel? Doesn’t sound sincere to me nor the right aim one’s literary instruments of warfare at a minority class being discriminated against! All of the above caucus of charlatans are blind! While at home typing this, I suddenly thought the urge of charitably offering a Cranmer abacus for them to count their own many hypocrisies, but a thoughtful reflection reminded me of such useless altruism, they are less endowed in intellect!
What is the prudence of such complaints of gender segregation and articles of clothing in regards to Muslim women (all that were never problems before the 9-11 attacks)? Let us extrapolate. It will lead to assimilation of a few, instead of acculturation if the Humanisticus’ and Dawkins’ dogmatic diplococcus ascertain a level of success in ignorantly brainwashing society. And it will lead to the contrary of freedom in the West. Thus destroying the West from within.
Western Islamophobia has already discreetly claimed female Muslim victims.
Muslim women in European countries are not traveling outside of their homes to avoid fines for bans on attire of religious significance.
In France, it has already led to a 647 percent increase in cases of discrimination at the workplace for hijabs from 2000 to 2006
Civil rights complaints filed with one Muslim advocacy group rose from 366 in 2000 to 2,467 in 2006, an increase of 674%.2
69% of women who wore hijab reported at least one incident of discrimination compared to 29% of women who did not wear hijab
At school: Muslim girls who wear headscarves, or whose mothers wear headscarves, have been harassed and assaulted
At work: Muslim women have been denied the right to wear a headscarf while working as police officers and in other occupations. Women also have been fired for refusing to remove their headscarves.
In law enforcement contexts: Muslim women have been denied the right to wear a headscarf while in jail and courthouse detention while visiting family members in correctional institutions, while accompanying family members to court, and even while working in correctional institutions. Women also have been harassed by police officers for wearing headscarves, both when being arrested and when they have called the police for help.
In public places: Muslim women and girls have been denied the right to enter public buildings, shopping malls, and swimming pools, and amusement parks unless they submit to being searched by male guards or agree to remove their head coverings and other garments that they wear for religious reasons.
In obtaining drivers’ licenses and otherwise engaging in civic life: Muslim women have been denied drivers’ licenses unless they remove their head coverings for the photograph. The same has happened to women seeking to obtain passport and NSA photos.
In the UK:
Muslim women were up to 65 per cent less likely to be employed than white Christian counterparts.
Muslims were the most disadvantaged in terms of employment prospects out of 14 ethno-religious groupings in the UK. For women, Muslim Pakistanis and a “Muslim other” group were 65 per cent less likely to have a job, with Muslim Indians 55 per cent, Muslim Bangladeshis 51 per cent and white Muslims 43 per cent less likely.
What next? Freedom by coercion of eating pigs and thus enjoying the liberating increased chances of experiencing cysticercus? Perhaps the forced liberation of a minority’s sexual modesty for the benefits of heightened chances of gonococcus? Are these the exigent sacrifices of freedom that the Julian Assanges, Edward Snowdens, and others risked for? To deplete the functions and reduce the identity of a minority to comfort the xenophobic and unfounded fears of a ‘terrorist’ crazed majority in lust for revenge? Such inconsequential complaints only beckon the soul to ponder what is aghast in Western society that propitiates such nuisances to be forced under a microscope and screamed at the top of the lungs it is another Bubonic Plague, when in fact Western measles have slaughtered and stolen more from the third world’s indigenous!?
Such wailing puppetry of fecal monstrosity that yelps Islamic nimbus clouds when only a cirrus floccus horizon is above, which consequentially makes an average human desire to sever his or her lateral lemniscuses, can only originate from the cercus of an insect with the high and long Himalayan mental intellect of a diplodocus and a malfunctioning autofocus. In the generalized defocus thought infested minds of Dawkins, Humanisticus, Futile, and Nick; placing the ‘substance’ or liquid of a coagulated mixture of Islam and Western into their container of Islamophobia only produces a frown whereas in actuality, in the barometer of sincere liberty – a smile from a convex meniscus is the true result 🙂 According to the mucus laden persistent trash spewed forth by the aforementioned Darwinist cuscus wannabe paparazzi, Muslim values are incompatible with the West, but even the natural Crocus can blossom in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
If there remains a Hibiscus-like nation where a woman may choose what to wear or not to wear without being harassed or disenfranchised of her equal rights, then allow us to usher in a true renaissance and coronate this beautiful shackless nation with golden orbs and emerald crowns with a terse oath and yet all of the rewards that freedom shall bestow. If we are to seek the quest which an ‘authentic’ Humanisticus allures to, we must truly migrate from its diametric example. His homeland, or its homeland (Humaniisticus may be an ape).An example-nation- where a disastrously intolerant and disgustingly false maniacal hubris which has -coercively by might-transformed the sole monopolistic definition of freedom by its own modern Umbilicus Urbis Romae of the West! The West has becometh God itself! If such freedom is exemplified in limiting women wearing an article of clothing as in 11th and 15th century Medieval Europe, then I must aver that the ficus worshipping coccus Humanisticus’ pen name does not focus on humanity, instead this Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus’ name should be bigoticus. A poor remnant bastard Heraclitus from the past conquest, by the father of Tacitus, now a rubber hammer on an English incus, for the War OF Terrorism’s hocus pocus.
Malay: “Boon chon doi.”
When States ban or openly discourage the challenging of one concept – such as the denying of the Holocaust – they are denying the Right of others to listen to dissenting opinions that might challenge us to inquire, and solidify, or modify our own perception of reality. It is almost criminalizing the necessity to question. Why do I believe the holocaust happened the way it is consistently documented? I wasn’t there. I’ve heard about it from several sources. Shouldn’t I be given a plethora of ideas since I have no way of fully accepting just one, given that I wasn’t there to experience it firsthand. By accepting the banning of unpopular, and offensive views, I am also harming the Right of others to hear a plethora of views and to educate themselves further. I am institutionalizing a way of thinking that exists on the left of centre, whilst criminalizing those on the fringes for saying words I do not like. This way, I become a slave to convention. I have learnt that this is unacceptable.
I’m not certain if Futile is cognizant that he has just hinted at desiring to be a criminal above. In Europe, 17 countries have already procured legislation against denying the Holocaust. Interestingly, since Futile is adamantly opposed to convention and restrictions upon questioning dominant paradigms in society, his antipathy toward denial of the Holocaust is noted, and laudatory. Though I’m not aware he ‘has’ publicly questioned the Holocaust on his blog or not. However, the direction of his own complaints toward convention and restrictions upon questioning is suspicious and unfair.
If indeed Futile tyke is diametrically opposed to the institutional suffocation of human free thought, then he should be a stringent adversary of the War OF Terrorism and its consequent Patriot Act and NDAA, which strip the citizens from the nation of its authorship of various civil rights including freedom of expression. I would think the preceding more a deserving target than the struggle to be obnoxious and belligerent toward minority Muslims. I would think Futile to be more concerned that the prosecutions for denying the holocaust have increased 20 percent since the 9-11 attacks of 2001. Furthermore, the challenging of the legitimacy of this farce witch hunt (WOT) is more criminalized, and more pertinent freedoms have been desiccated than the popular fad of ranting anti-Islamic tweets. Up to date , the following rights under the US Constitution have been infringed upon in exchange for the security promised under the War Of Terrorism. 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 14th
Yet hark! It is not only America that is immune. The UK also has its freedom suffocating terrorism legislation.
Terrorism Act 2000, extended the limit to 7 days detention without charge for terrorist suspects. It also allows terrorist organizations to be banned. Sixty groups have to date been outlawed. The Act also introduced a broad definition of “terrorism” under s.1. The stop and search powers in the Act were used to search protesters at an arms trade fair in Canary Wharf, including a Ph.D. student and a journalist who took legal action as a result. The police action was held to be lawful in R (Gillan) v Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police.
Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, allows the government full surveillance powers of all kinds of communication. The current rate is 30 warrants being issued a week. In the 15 months from July 2005 to October 2006, 2407 warrants were issued.
Civil Contingencies Act 2004, allows the government, for an “emergency”, to deploy armed forces anywhere in the country during peace time (cf. Bill of Rights 1689). It also allows property to be sequestrated, for an “emergency” with or without compensation anywhere.
Serious Organized Crime and Police Act 2005, created an offence of inciting religious hatred, an advanced notification scheme for protests up to 1 kilometer from Parliament.
Anti-Terrorism Crime and Security Act 2001, in response to the destruction of the NYC World Trade Center on 9/11, the government passed legislation allowing indefinite detention without trial for non-British nationals suspected of committing terrorist offences, but without enough evidence for an actual trial (cf. Magna Carta, Habeas Corpus Act 1679). When passing Acts of Parliament, under the HRA 1998 the Minister has to make a “statement of compatibility” with the Convention. What they did was to send notice of derogation from the right to a fair trial, Art.6 ECHR. Art.15 ECHR is the derogation provision, which says “In time of war or other public emergency threatening the life of the nation” a member can derogate “to the extent strictly required by the exigencies of the situation”. The minister then declared when passing the 2001 Act that it was (with the derogation sent) compatible with the HRA 1998.
Criminal Justice Act 2003, abrogated double jeopardy in cases with “new and compelling evidence”.
A and Others v Secretary of State for the Home Department  UKHL 17, the majority of the House of Lords decided that the detention without trial under the ATCSA 2001 was discriminatory to non-British nationals, and therefore incompatible under Art.14 ECHR. A declaration of incompatibility was issued under s.4 HRA 1998. Lord Hoffmann was the only dissenting judge to hold that the whole detention without trial idea was incompatible with the right to a trial under Art.6, and that the derogation was unacceptable, because there was no “threat to the life of the nation”. He argued strongly that it would be wrong to suggest, with the majority’s view that discrimination was the problem, that the government should be allowed to lock up all Britons alike.
Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, the government in response to A’s case passed this allows the Home Secretary to impose control orders on any British citizen. Anybody suspected of terrorist related activities by the Home Secretary, but without any kind of trial, can be electronically tagged, monitored, be restricted from making phone calls, using the internet, be banned from certain kinds of work, can be restricted from going certain places, have one’s passport revoked and be under a duty to report to the police. The control order system was held disproportionate in Secretary of State for the Home Department v JJ  UKHL 45. The system was declared incompatible, because there was no derogation. However Lord Brown stated that if a suspect was left with eight hours’ liberty a day, then it would have been acceptable.
Terrorism Act 2006, following the bombings in London on the 7th of July, this legislation allows for people suspected of terrorist offences to be detained without charge for up to 28 days. The Criminal Justice Act 2003 had extended the time to 14 days. The government had initially proposed a limit of 90 days, saying this was on the recommendation of the police, and citing support from opinion polls. Opposition among MPs saw the first defeat for the Blair government; the Conservative amendment of 28 days detention without charge being accepted. The act also created a new offence of “glorifying terrorism”.
Austin v Metropolitan Police Commissioner  EWCA Civ 989, Court of Appeal rejects a charge of false imprisonment and an Art.5 ECHR claim for police holding May Day protestors in Oxford Circus in 2001.
Counter-Terrorism Bill 2008 sought to extend the number of days detention without charge to 42 days and to allow the Home Secretary to require an inquest to be established without a jury in secret if they deems it to be in the public interest, the interest of an overseas treaty partner or in the interest of national security. David Davis MP, a Conservative politician and Shadow Home Secretary at the time, resigned his parliamentary seat in June 2008 in protest over the proposed extension to detention with charge. His resignation forced a by-election, which he contested and won on a civil liberties platform. Neither Labour nor the Liberal Democrats stood a candidate
R v AB and CD (2014) will be the first British trial to be held entirely in secret.
Why not a peep from Futile, Dawkins (ABUH) , Humanisticus, or Nick his own mother in public statements or in their blogs? They do believe in freedom of speech, don’t they? Or are they too concerned with helping Israel maintain its chokehold on Arab rights? Or are they concerned with rights just when it allows a cheap opportunity to court favor from other segments of society by cowardly lynching minority Muslims?
Returning to America, a modern version of the COINTELPRO in the 1960s and 1970s civil rights movement has been re-enacted involving disruption, infiltration, harassment, and incarceration of groups categorized as anti-war activists. According to Dr. Hatem Bazian the FBI is performing the same activities as it did to black civil rights activists during the 60s and 70s. What did the FBI do? “The security agencies planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls. They spread misinformation about meetings and events, set up pseudo movement groups run by agents, and manipulated or strong-armed parents, employers, landlords, school officials and others to cause trouble for activists.” Sounds pretty rough to me. Oppression more like it.
What are the results of such methods by the FBI? Reports of the FBI’s use of informants going awry continue to surface: “There was the 2010 high profile case of the Portland teenager (dubbed the “Christmas Tree Bomber”) where surveillance by local FBI is now being called into question by critics across the country because illegal entrapment may have been employed. There was also the 2009 shooting death during an FBI raid of 53 year-old Imam Luqman Ameen Abdullah, a leader of a Sunni Islam group in Detroit. According to reports, agents were attempting to arrest Abdullah for conspiracy to sell stolen goods but after refusing to surrender to police, Abdullah was shot in his Dearborn Warehouse. The autopsy later showed that he had been shot 20 times, calling into question the use of force in the shooting. Muslim Advocates, together with the NAACP, recently wrote a letter to the Attorney General Eric Holder expressing concern over the killing. And in a story that sounds like a spy-thriller a 46 year-old Los Angeles fitness instructor—and convicted conman—Craig Monteilh was hired by the FBI to infiltrate the Islamic Center of Irvine. When the local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), alarmed by his talk of jihad and plans for a terrorist attack, reported him to Irvine police, the FBI quickly turned on Monteilh. The FBI has been spying on Muslim community leaders and activists with 7,485 email addresses of people monitored between 2002 and 2008. In that list, 202 are Americans, 5,501 are listed as ‘unknown’ and 1,782 are listed as non-U.S. persons.” And 9 times out o ten, the informants pitching intel to the FBI are convicted criminals with long rap sheets. Eg. In the prosecution of Ziyad Yaghi, a criminal informant – Alvin Harris – had multiple convictions for armed robbery and was given $200,000 to testify with immunity from past crimes.
US Government WOT policies as of now, imprison innocent fundamentally innocuous Muslims for dubious evidence based on thoughts and associations alone. That’s not terrorism, it’s unconstitutional! It’s oppression. As a researcher intimately involved with wrongful conviction under the specious conspiracy to commit terrorism charge; cases such as Ziyad Yaghi, Mohammid Hamid, the Duka Brothers, and more highlight the tragic and disturbing fact that words and speech alone, along with ambiguous unproven friendships or associations, are sufficient to incarcerate a Muslim suspected of terrorism. That’s not equality, it’s called oppression! While those of white skin who post worse inflammatory comments threatening Muslims lives and to virulently violent remarks against the government in public and some who maintain open relationships with known criminals, remain untouched – such cases as Brandon Raub (which I was intimately involved in helping his family free him when he was arrested) and Cameron D’Ambrosio and Justin Carter and Ted Nugent and Ann Coulter, groups such as the League of the South, US Freedom Army, Aryan Nation, English Defense League, Tea Party, American militias, etc.
Even Muslim charities have been targeted by the FBI. 30 charities have been shut down since 9-11 by US agencies for ‘suspected’ terrorist ties. I highlight suspected because in the majority of these cases, the evidence was either never presented against the charities or there was no evidence. Such paranoia is not only expressed by arbitrarily closing down Muslim charities under the guile of terrorism, but also entails aggressive acts designed to intimidate successful Muslim business and organizations. “In a move that alarmed American Muslims and sparked intense criticism from civil rights advocates, scores of law enforcement officers from several federal agencies converged on Muslim homes and businesses in Virginia on March 20 2002, reportedly investigating “links” to international terrorist organizations. Among the sites raided were some of the most respected and moderate in the Muslim community, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences, the Fiqh Council of North America, and the Virginia office of the Muslim World League.” The raids were orchestrated by the U.S. Customs Service. There were no arrest nor any convictions later. As usual, the only civil rights organization for Muslims, Council of American Relations (CAIR) , condemned the action while accusations were directed at it for being a terrorist organization as well. It seems in America, anything Muslim, is related to a terrorist. Especially if it is successful.
Such activity has been replicated in the UK, France, and other countries touched by Islamophobia. For example, Muslim charity Interpal – highly lauded by the United Nations – was labeled a terrorist charity by the US in 2003 and it deeply affected its ability to operate. It was smeared in the media and after investigations, it was cleared of any wrong doing and many reprints in the media with apologies forthcoming. Such is the paranoia that Islamophobia promulgates!
As a result of the WOT, Americans and the world now witness indefinite detention without due process and the use of cruel torture upon suspected terrorists, including American citizens, which has embroiled significant outrage by Western journalists, professors, and the public. Why? Take the conclusion of the notorious Guantanamo Bay, Cuba detention facility which housed suspected terrorists through the WOT! The majority of those ‘suspected’ terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have been found not guilty after years of incarceration. Now there are articles roaming about how ‘a few’ in the former US presidential administration of George Bush were cognizant that they were innocent, but rescinded their consciences to obedience. And still, there are some Guantanamo inmates-suspected terrorists- to this day that have been declared innocent, but still remain in prison because the bureaucratic process is slow. In a US Senate Intelligence Report investigating CIA torture – which the White House and CIA attempted to block its release- it exposed rectal insertion into prisoners, mock burials and threats to prisoner’s families, sensory deprivation along with extended prolonged exposure to deafening high volume music over periods of weeks continuously confined in a cell, prisoners frozen to death while shackled to a wall, use of dogs and insects to coerce confessions, sexual lewd acts against prisoners, water boarding, physical assault in some cases, prolonged standing, and refusal of medical treatment for physical wounds. How much has the line of treatment of prisoners between the US/UK and dictatorships in the 3rd world come closer?
President Barack Obama said the report detailed a “troubling” program and showed that “some of the actions that were taken were contrary to our values…That is why I unequivocally banned torture when I took office, because one of our most effective tools in fighting terrorism and keeping Americans safe is staying true to our ideals at home and abroad.”
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic chair of the intelligence committee who has spent years fighting CIA and Republican resistance to producing and releasing the report previously said, “If the Senate can declassify this report, we will be able to ensure that an un-American, brutal program of detention and interrogation will never again be considered or permitted.”
“We acknowledge that the detention and interrogation program had shortcomings and that the Agency made mistakes,” said CIA Director John Brennan.
Judges such as U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest noted indefinite detention violated not only the first, but fifth amendments of the US constitution.
Naomi Wolf stated, “As I have been warning since 2006: there is not a country on the planet that you can name that has ever set in place a system of torture, and of detention without trial, for an “other”, supposedly external threat that did not end up using it pretty quickly on its own citizens.”
Shahid Buttar of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee commented upon the NDAA and Patriot Act legislations, “the worst threat to civil liberties since COINTELPRO. It gives the government the power to presume guilt rather than innocence, and indefinitely imprison anyone accused of a ‘belligerent act’ or terror-related offense without trial.”
In reference to NSA spying, it violates the fourth amendment, “We are extremely disappointed with this decision, which misinterprets the relevant statutes, understates the privacy implications of the government’s surveillance and misapplies a narrow and outdated precedent to read away core constitutional protections,” said Jameel Jaffer, an ACLU deputy legal director.
The Senate Committee ultimately concluded the techniques by the CIA resulted in no credible intelligence which led to deterring terrorist incidents.
The preparation of defensive security measures in preparation for COIN against terrorists in America has dwindled the line between a civilian and military distinction. Military weapons for law enforcement, law enforcement cooperating with the military and CIA and DHS and FBI in counter-terrorism, military apache helicopters (armed) flying over domestic buildings and homes, martial law over-reaction over the Boston bombing, arrest of David Miranda and invasion of the Guardian’s offices and consequent destruction of its hard drives. America is turning slowly into a military state! And papa UK is joining her.
So what of the economic costs associated with the War OF Terrorism? NSA spying integrated into new technologies has cost the US $35 billion in technology sales. The US lost its Boeing $4.5 billion contract with Brazil to Sweden’s Saab because the Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff became enraged about the NSA spying on Brazil. Countries such as India will not partner nor purchase technologies from the US for such sensitive tasks as voting. “If we don’t get the explanations, I don’t think we can trust on the reliability of the U.S. in these questions,” said Axel Voss, a German member of the European Parliament. The European Union-the United States’ largest trading partner- threatened to cancel trade talks over the revelation of NSA spying on them. Robert Gibbs, a former press secretary for the Obama administration stated “I think we have to evaluate whether the costs of the methods of gathering some intelligence greatly exceeds the benefit of that intelligence, particularly when we’re listening in to, apparently, some of our very closest allies,” he said. Each taxpayer provides $574 a year for $53 billion. $30 billion and $40 billion in direct grants to state and local law enforcement for surveillance.
Immigration enforcement (USCIS) now under the jurisdiction of a counter-terrorism agency (Dept. of Homeland Security) has cost more than the FBI, Secret Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshal Service and Bureau of Alcohol-Tobacco-Firearms-Explosives combined. ICE and CBP also refer more cases to prosecution than those other agencies combined. The U.S. deported about 30,000 people in the 1990 fiscal year; in the 2012 fiscal year, it removed a record 409,894. A majority of those people were deported without an order from an immigration judge, instead DHS allowed agents to use their own discretion, the Migration Policy Institute found.
Stephen Salisbury does a very good job at breaking it down.
“Yes, it’s true that Montgomery County, Texas, has purchased a weapons-capable drone. (They say they’ll only arm it with tasers, if necessary.) Yes, it’s true that the Tampa police have beefed the force up with an eight-ton armored personnel carrier, augmenting two older tanks the department already owns. Yes, the Fargo police are ready with bomb detection robots, and Chicago boasts a network of at least 15,000 interlinked surveillance cameras….So much money has gone into armoring and arming local law-enforcement since 9/11 that the federal government could have rebuilt post-Katrina New Orleans five times over and had enough money left in the kitty to provide job training and housing for every one of the record 41,000-plus homeless people in New York City. It could have added in the growing population of 15,000 homeless in Philadelphia, my hometown, and still have had money to spare. Add disintegrating Detroit, Newark, and Camden to the list. Throw in some crumbling bridges and roads, too. The Federal government $635 billion. ”
Did this Islamophobic fear of Muslims in the West spark from the Western media alone? No. There are philanthropist who fund evil and racism. The list of them is below and how much they have contributed to the campaign of Islamophobia today:
Donors Capital Fund $20,768,600,
Richard Scaifefoundations $7,875,000,
Lynde and HarryBradley Foundation $5,370,000
Russell Berrie Foundation $3,109,016
Anchorage Charitable Fund and William Rosenwald Family Fund $2,818,229
Fairbook Foundation $1,498,450
Newton and Rochelle Becker foundations $1,136,000
And who are their charlatans? The modern Peter the Hermits who prey on the weak by proliferating hatred by becoming the mouthpieces of the above financiers? Here are some of Richard Dawkins (ABU) buddies:
FRANK GAFFNEY, Center for Security Policy – “A mosque that is used to promote a seditious program, which is what Sharia is…that is not a protected religious practice, that is in fact sedition.”
DAVID YERUSHALMI, Society of Americans for National Existence: “Muslim civilization is at war with Judeo-Christian civilization…the Muslim peoples,those committed to Islam as we know it today, are our enemies.”
DANIEL PIPES, Middle East Forum: “All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most.”
ROBERT SPENCER, Jihad Watch: “Of course, as I have pointed out many times,traditional Islam itself is not moderate or peaceful. It is the only major world religion with a developed doctrine and tradition of warfare against unbelievers.”
STEVEN EMERSON, Investigative Project on Terrorism: “One of the world’s great religions — which has more than 1.4 billion adherents — somehow sanctions genocide, planned genocide, as part of its religious doctrine.”
These five “scholars” are assisted in their outreach efforts by Brigitte Gabriel (founder, ACT! for America), Pamela Geller (co-founder, Stop Islamization of America), and David Horowitz (supporter of Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch). They are hate mongerers! They feed off the confusion, hatred, and fear of post 9-11 and have successfully made it into a profitable business! And Dawkins (ABUH) , Humanisticus, Nick, Futile are their little paparazzi trying to follow the same footsteps.
THAT is what separates me from them! I delve in love, not hatred.
In the post 9-11 world, we Muslims live under the boot strap of the doctrine of Preemptive Prosecution and Cheney’s 1 percent theorem. And most of victims marginalized under media and Islamophobia are the innocent families of Muslim immigrants.
A prime example of this is Tareq Abufayyad, a Palestinian man and a recent college graduate who had intentions of joining his family in the U.S., all of whom were naturalized citizens of America. But rather than reuniting with his family. Abufayyad found himself detained at San Francisco International Airport, deemed inadmissible simply because he had the potential to become a Hamas-operative.
WOT material witness laws not only affect suspected terrorists but also human rights activists such as with the Occupy Movement. In one case, 70 men were detained for suspicion of possessing sensitive information. 13 received apologies for being wrongfully detained and half of them never went to trial. They were not informed of the reason for their arrest, allowed immediate access to a lawyer, nor permitted to see the evidence used against them. The Justice Department evaded fundamental protections for the suspects above and the legal requirements for arrested witnesses. Their court proceedings were also conducted behind closed doors, and all the court documents were sealed. In such an environment as the WOT America, congressional inquiries are turned away from investigating government agencies affiliated with Terrorism legislation, witnesses are arrested at gunpoint, held round the clock in solitary confinement, and subjected to the harsh and degrading high-security conditions usually reserved for prisoners accused or convicted of the most dangerous crimes.
Civil rights lawyer Michael Deutch stated as a portent of the new terrorism legislation, “”The law could theoretically be used against labor strikes, acts of civil disobedience, demonstrations, and so on.”
And it did with the Occupy Movement. One study indicated 53 percent of terrorist convictions were not based on terrorism. One percent of these suspects were real terrorists.
Do not let the forked tongued Futile Chicken Little and the Ape Worshipper Dawkins (ABUH) fool any of you! They speak not on behest of Atheism or Liberty! Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile scrubber prefer to bullishly bash a powerless minority, than testing their keen antagonistic sense of perverted justice against the least criticized yet more significantly criminal norms of the West’s support toward the jezebel Israel, their own principles of secular Democracy/Republicanism/Monarchy, and most importantly the War OF Terrorism! Their silence on the preceding topics amplifies the high volume of their primordial thought and raises on a pedestal their cowardice. In regards to achievement of their words, they both are corpses still remaining on the trails of Mount Everest! In regards to Dawkins’ (ABUH) God’s Sense, as John Adams once commented on Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, “What a poor, ignorant, malicious, crapulous mass.” The distinction between both works, Paine actually aspired for a notable contribution and some credit him for it till this day. Dawkins (ABUH), will be forgotten as his fleeting moment of fame elapses with the emotion of hatred, once understanding and tolerance reign as history shows. Futile prat and Dawkins (ABUH) are like diapers; they need to be changed often and for the same reason.
Greek: “Chézo̱ kai kláno sta moutra sou mýri karióla.”
The word ‘Islamophobia’ is seeped in hypocrisy and inconsistency. It is a way to discourage free inquiry of ideas. To accept, without question, that this particular idea is off limits with regard criticism of any form. To suggest otherwise, gets us to the rather peculiar point in which even a cartoon of the Prophet, is “Islamophobic“. And yet, there is no balance by which they pour – not just equal – any scorn whatsoever when certain undesirable features of Islam rear their ugly heads; Hassan’s speech for example. Though we can almost be certain of the scorn that would flow forth upon the writers, if a “Book of Islam” musical, were to be made in the mould of “The Book of Mormon”
The depiction of Islamophobia as hypocritical and inconsistent is void of factual premises to augment such a naive assertion, and absent a mature and realistic comprehension of the history of human society and nature. Islamophobia is legitimate because detrimental effects have been recorded from this psychological phenomena in such a plethora of frequency despite the dearth of observation by Futile pillocks. Websites dedicated to publishing newspaper articles update their databases with several hits daily on Muslim victimized solely in consequence of their religion.
According to a BBC Radio Newsbeat poll the human phenomena of Islamophobia is credible:
More than a quarter of 18 to 24-year-olds in Britain do not trust Muslims. Of the 1,000 young people questioned, 28% said Britain would be better off with fewer Muslims, while 44% said Muslims did not share the same values as the rest of the population. Some 60% thought the British public had a negative image of Muslims. Young people place the blame for Islamophobia in Britain on terror groups abroad (26%), the media (23%) and UK Muslims who have committed acts of terror (21%). Only three in 10 (29%) think Muslims are doing enough to combat extremism in their communities. However, overall young people are more likely to agree (48%) than disagree (27%) that Islam is a peaceful religion.
What about America?
Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Islam, the lowest rating since 2001, according to a 2010 ABC News/Washington Post poll. According to a 2010 Time magazine poll, 28 percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, and nearly one-third think they should be barred from running for president.
According to a Pew Research report, the proportion of Americans who say that Islam has little or nothing in common with their own religion has increased substantially since 2005 (from 59% to 70%).
A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll found that 22 percent of Americans don’t want a Muslim as their neighbor, despite the fact that wherever Muslims live in the U.S., property values rise. Thirty-nine percent also said they favored requiring Muslims, including U.S. citizens, to carry special identification.
Anti-Islam bills are now law in seven American states.
In 2010 Oklahoma voters approved SQ 755, a state constitutional amendment banning judges in that state from considering Islamic religious principles in their rulings. In practice this would have prohibited a judge from probating an Islamic will. In the voting booth, Oklahomans were told that Islamic religious principles are “based on two principal sources, the Koran and the teaching of Mohammed.” The First Amendment clearly prohibits any such government interference in the free exercise of a religion.
Oklahoma’s bill was not unique. In 2011 and 2012, 78 bills or amendments designed to vilify Islamic religious practices were introduced in the legislatures of 29 states and the U.S. Congress. Seventy-three of the bills were introduced solely by Republicans.
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), in 2011 cases filed on the basis of “Religion-Muslim” accounted for 21 percent of the total religion charges.
Islam phobic sentiments are not only in the UK ad America, but have spread like a wildfire across Europe and Australia.
The Netherlands far right political party is rising and so with it, Islamophobia. Dansk Folkeparti declares it wants to stop all Muslim immigration. Joakim Johansson was asked to depart a Danish airplane for reading the Quran.
In Sweden, a Democratic candidate is ejected from his party for asking for equal rights for Muslims without assimilation and declaring that a mosque is an ordinary place of worship. Another Democrat for Sweden, Annika Rydh, asked for limitations on the fertility rates of Muslims. Archbishop Antje Jackelén was threatened and vehemently attacked on the internet for preaching tolerance with Muslims.
In Australia, One Nation party candidate Stephanie Banister who was involved in a anti-Muslim vandalism campaign claimed Halal food funds terrorism and Jews are not like Muslims because they follow Jesus Christ. Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi called Islam a retarded religion, believes that Islam is taking control of Australia’s cities, and called for a cap on Muslim immigration. At least the Australian Parliament published a report declaring Islamophobia is threatening its multi-culturalism.
In Germany, Allensbach Institute and Bielefeld University published studies indicating the same observations. A pregnant Egyptian mother, Marwa El-Sherbiny, as stabbed to death 18 times by an Aryan coward inside a courtroom.
In Greece, the Golden Dawn political party sent a letter to the Muslim Association threatening to kill all Muslims like chickens if all of them did not leave by a certain date.
Athens is the only EU capital city without a mosque coerces Muslims to pray in underground rooms in violation of the secular laws. Bishop Seraphim of Piraeus who claims that “Greece suffered five centuries of Islamic tyranny under Turkish rule and building a mosque would offend the martyrs who freed us”. A group of Nazi punks on motor bikes searched down Imam Shahbaz Siddiqi and vandalized his home, at which point when he reported it, the police told him they did not have the time to investigate his complaint.
An ENAR Report found Islamophobia to be widespread all across Europe.
The above does not mention media, public figures, employees, and normal citizens threatening, insulting, or discriminating against Muslims because of their religion.
What of facts pertaining to physical manifestations of this above phobia?
The year of 2013 in the UK witnessed an unprecedented huge increase in anti-Muslim incidents. That is without a recording system by the law enforcement. An unprecedented 50 percent spike in numbers of Muslim hate crimes in 2011 have remained at equal levels until its highest year in 2013. NGOs such as Tell Mama funded for accumulating such data concur. Jonathan Githens-Mazer and Robert Lambert of Exter university in their Case Study proved with prima facie and empirical evidence, a correlation between bigotry against Muslims (Islamophobia) in the media and consequential violent acts against Muslims.
The physical manifestation is not only prevalent in the UK but also in other France.
As of 2013, over 60 percent of victims of racial hate crimes in France were Muslim between 2007 and 2008. A women miscarried after being assaulted by skinheads and a soldier of the French army was arrested for plotting attacks against a French mosque. The spike in hate crimes against Muslims in France has led to Kamel Kabtane, the rector of the Grand mosque in Lyon, to urge the government of President Francoise Hollande to take “serious measures” to counter the rising tide of Islamophobia in France.
In America, Islamophobes claim there is no such thing as Islamophobia-like their cousins Dawkins (ABU) and Futile midget- because crimes against Jews in America are higher than Muslims. It’s true but not accurate. In 2000 the FBI reported were 28 crimes against Muslims and 1,161 against Jews. Within one year in 2001, it rose to 481 Muslim hate crimes and 1,403 against Jews. It dropped significantly in 2002 to 155 against Muslims and 931 against Jews, then fluctuated near the 160 level against Muslims and 887 against Jews until 2010. In 2011, 157 against Muslims and 771 against Jews. 2012 reported anti-Muslim motivated incidents at 149 and anti-Jewish at 696.
If the 2012 FBI report is broken down by percentages based on religious population figures from the Pew Forum in 2008 into what percentage of the population is affected by these incidents: In 2012, we get.0140% of the Jewish population which comprise of 1.7% of the total US populations being affected while .010% of the Muslim population which comprise .6 of the total being affected. Let’s reiterate the fact that in the year 2000, 0.022% of Jews and .001% of Muslims were affected by religiously motivated hate crimes. The summarization is that from 2000 to 2001, crimes against Muslims have spiked 1,617% , then fell sharply to a 435% above the 2000 level and maintained this until 2012, while hate crimes against Jews have continued to fall consistently from 2001 till 2012 to 40% less than the 2000 level.
What is of note is two facts derived from the FBI data which Islamophobic sites overlook or refuse to publish. While implying that America is respectful of religious minorities by pointing out Muslim hate crimes are maintaining at the 6% spike from 2002-2012 (despite the fact it rose 17% after the 9-11 attacks in 2001), hate crimes against the Catholic population – which is 20 times larger than both Muslim and Jewish populations- and the Protestant population -which is 50 times larger than both- remained lower than Jews and Muslims put together throughout the period of 2000 to 2012. Which means America has a problem with anti-Semitism. The second thing to point out is that Muslims are slowly replacing Jews as the main target of anti-Semitic hate crimes, while the affects of hate crimes in 2012 are nearly equal in juxtaposition when regarding the heuristic of effect on each population. Islamophobes omitted the beginning point and trend of hate Crimes against Muslims.
Islamophobia doesn’t just pervade American society in regards to hate crimes and vandalism and discrimination, insulting and dehumanizing comments by public figures and even politicians, but it also pervades in the very treatment of Muslim prisoners.
Here were two comments that struck me:
“They treated us like professional terrorists. They put us in cars and had big guns-as if they were going to shoot people, as if we were Osama bin Laden. They didn’t let us speak, they didn’t let us ask why we were in detention. I never knew for how long we would stay in jail. It felt like we would stay forever ? I didn’t even know why I was in jail.” -Tarek Omar, an Egyptian national arrested as a material witness in October 2001 with seven friends and relatives who had immigrated together from Egypt. The eight men later received an apology from the FBI for wrongful arrest.
“I was transferred ? to solitary confinement in the Special Housing Unit, or the ‘ninth floor hole.’ The room was maybe six-by-five feet. I was in a small cell for twenty-four hours a day with the lights on. Guards came every ten to fifteen minutes and banged on the door. They look through the hole and stare and looked at me. For two months, I left the cell only for interrogations. Later I was allowed outside after two months but they would leave me out in the freezing cold. I didn’t sleep for one or two months. The guards would bang on the door all night. They would say, ‘This is the guy-the Taliban guy,’ or call me ‘Khan Taliban.’ The guards said so many bad things. They told me: ‘You won’t ever see your family. You’re going to die here. Do you smell the WTC [World Trade Center] smoke? You’re gone. How would you like to die? With the electric chair?’ … [Whenever I was taken out of my cell] they would twist my hands. My feet were shackled and guards would step on chains. I got a deep cut on my feet. I was stripped too many times to remember and hit on the back. I would be pushed against the wall. Whenever they took me to the FBI, guards would twist my hands and fingers and tell me to ‘Just shut up.'” -Ayub Ali Khan, an Indian national arrested as a material witness on September 12, 2001 charged with the 9-11 terrorist attacks and consequently found not guilty. He was held in the Special Housing Unit at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York
In regards to the attenuation of Islamophobia in the West -via hypothesizing that making a musical of the Book of Islam in the mold of the Book of Mormon would be meet with outright protests and thus expose hypocritical limitations on freedom of speech- the topic was discussed previously. After The Innocence of Muslims and more, I doubt The Book of Islam would be anything comparable to the innocuous and humorous Book of Mormon. But I will reiterate for the pikey Futile. No satirical film depicting religion, has exceeded that of those minstrel displays against Muslims and diatribes against Islam emanating from the West. And yet, Muslims have not responded in kind. Furthermore, the false assumption by Futile skinhead is that there exists no reaction by the West or other parts of the world to such works as he mentions. Let us examine the facts.
While Lars Vilks Mohammed’s (PBUH) cartoons were published in Jyllands-Posten, Alfred Hrdlicka’s art works were quickly removed from an art exhibit in Vienna , Austria.
In 1987 New York artist Andres Serrano’s painting of Jesus submerged in urine was vandalized in France.
The Argentine artist Leon Ferrari works of the Virgin Mary in a blender and saints in a frying pan was not only banned, but vandalized.
In 2010 the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. removed a video that showed ants crawling on a crucifix after the Catholic League and several House Republicans criticized it as a form of hate speech offensive to Christians.
Cultural Centre of the Philippines in Manila hosted an exhibition with a phallic unicorn Jesus. Under threats of blasphemy charges, the exhibit was shut down.
Nepali artist Manish Harijan received death threats for paintings showed Hindu gods with Western heroes and the police in Nepal were called to shut the entire building down.
Maqbool Fida Husain work had nude Hindu gods and was forced into exile in the UK.
Chris Ofili’s work with the Virgin Mary which included collaged vaginas was inevitably vandalized after New York mayor Rudy Giuliani attempted to coerce Brooklyn museum to take it down.
In 2008, a punk festival in Linköping, Sweden used marketing posters showing Satan defecating on Jesus on the cross, under the slogan “Punx against christ [sic]!” The poster was taken down by the municipality of Linköping. The publication of the poster in the local newspaper Östgöta Correspondenten caused death threats to the editor-in-chief
If Sweden is such a champion of free expression, why did it take 30 years until 2001 to lift its censorship of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Tenebre in 2005 or Return of the Living dead Nosferatu until 1972 or Django in 1968?
What films has secular UK banned? Black Sunday was banned for 8 years in the UK A Clockwork Orange for 26 years The Texas Chain Saw Massacrefor 25 years The New York Ripper for 20 years The Evil Dead for 17 years Faces of Death for 19 years Hell of the Living Dead for 18 years Cannibal Holocaust for 17 years Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III for 14 years Mikey still banned till this day since 1995 The Good Son for a year. Visions of Ecstasy blasphemous.
On 8 September 2011 Advertising Standards Authority, UK’s advertising watchdog, banned a Phones4U mobile phone ad featuring an image of Jesus Christ after receiving almost 100 complaints that it “mocked and belittled” the Christian faith. According to the watchdog the cartoon picture of Jesus winking and giving a thumbs-up sign was “disrespectful to the Christian faith” and was “likely to cause serious offence, particularly to Christians.
In 2002, the author of the Spanish public domain personal computer game Slaughter Cofrade, known by the initials “J. C. C. S.,” was formally accused by the Cristo del Gran Poder of violating section 525 of the penal code, which forbids any sort of “attack” on religious dogma, beliefs, or ceremonies. His game depicted the shooting of characters robed in religious clothing and carrying Christian crosses.
In November 2011, Denmark a website selling diet pills, 24hdiet.com, was blocked by Danish ISPs, the first use of a new law on the blocking of foreign websites that sell drugs
In 2004, Jesus Dress Up fridge magnets, which depicts a cartoon crucified Jesus in underpants and can be dressed in Satan pajamas, sparked national controversy in the U.S. at an Urban Outfitters receiving more than 250,000 complaints after being featured on MSNBC. The retailer canceled all remaining orders with the magnet’s creator Normal Bob Smith, then as a result of this attention, a religious activist group called Laptop Lobbyists alerted the artist’s web-hosting company and temporarily succeeded in shutting down the Jesus Dress Up web site.
In 2005, Marithé and François Girbaud’s parodied Leonardo’s religious painting The Last Supper in a publicity poster. The Catholic Church initiated a lawsuit against the Girbauds, sparking concerns regarding freedom of expression and blasphemy. The judge labeled the poster as “an insult to Christians.” The lawsuit was eventually dismissed.
Gerhard Haderer’s cartoon book The Life of Jesus was banned in Greece in 2003 under Greek laws of “blasphemy” and “insulting religion”. In 2005, its author was given a six-month suspended prison sentence in absentia. Both the ban and the conviction were reversed in appeal after an outcry against the initial decision both in Greece and elsewhere in Europe.
It appears that censorship and intolerance for criticism, innovation, and insults against religion is not such an open and uncontroversial topic in the West as Futile would have some believe. Imagine if Muslims across the world returned -with no restrictions-the same behavior as the West upon Islam and Muslims. We would have another Hiroshima and Nagasaki, another war. Wait we already have a war. Makes me wonder why Muslims have not returned such despicable ignorance in kind. There is a difference between power and morality, some in the West are prone to confuse them both.
One must ask, what is wrong with Dawkins (ABUH) , Humanisticus, Nick, and Futile? What course of development, what non-normative event in their psychosocial development produced shit!? Such human psychosomatic phenomena as Islamophobia is not an anomaly. One prone to history can testify to the likes of the above and what hamster wheel mass paranoia is turning within their tiny Casper heads.
In 1962, near Kashasha in Tanzania thousands of people were subdued to fits of laughter wherein schools were shut down.
September 21, 1995 in India, a single report of a man’s spoonful milk disappearing after offering it to the god Ganesha spurred a mass hysteria where all of the temples with the statue of this god were filled with gallons of milk and reports of the same phenomenon.
In May 2006 more than 300 students at 14 schools reported dizziness and rashes after watching the soap opera Morangos com Açúcar.
On October 30, 1938 The War of the Worlds caused massive panic throughout the US.
In July of 1518 Frau Troffea started a dancing plague which lasted months and inevitably led to a large portion of its participants dancing until death.
In the 14th century nuns began biting each other uncontrollably from Saxony and Brandenburg to Holland to Rome.
1835 Richard A. Locke of the New York Sun reported seeing bat-like humans and miniature zebras on the moon with a brand new telescope.
But this is only hitting around the problem pertaining to the War OF Terrorism and Islamophobia. Let us be more exact on the nail. What of eschatological phenomena? 1806 in Leeds England, it was reported that a hen laid eggs with the inscription “Christ is coming” and so large numbers converted to Christianity. Later thorough investigation discovered that an egg with ink had been forced into the hen’s body before laying.
Between 1400 to 1650, when at least 200,000 people were executed following allegations of witchcraft. People confessed of flying on brooms, kissing Satan’s anus, etc.
1692, Salem Village (now Danvers, Massachusetts), numbers of people were tried and convicted of witchcraft, then put to death, all by confessions.
In 1484, Malleus maleficarum by Pope Innocent VIII defined Witchcraft declaring moles were an indication and that people had to walk in a court room backwards in order to not to cast spells. IT claimed these dangerous vermin were guilty of cannibalism, infanticide, stealing penises, and more.
Trois-Echelles in Charles IX’s court announced the presence of 100,000 witches and inevitably led to the relinquishment of normal rights citizens accused of crimes were granted.
NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander claims 50 terrorist plots foiled.

And as Shakespeare’s MacBeth pointed out the craze of his times, here a following palpable poem of a single mother whose tears haven’t missed a day of her life in consequence of her only son imprisoned because of thought crimes.
Sometimes I wish I had….
Just like the night and its darkness
And the moon and its fullness
And the stars with their brightness
And the sun and the moon
When they dance over earth
Disturbing the turtles
And the flowers of the sea
Sometimes I wish I had supernatural powers
To snap my fingers and let you out
To put a smile on those sad eyes
And many many other eyes
Through the darkness of the night
that conceals the ghosts
and the faults of the many
With my hands over my ears
I try to silence
The cries of
The ones who are oppressed
Then I wish… I had the powers
If I had them no one will ever cry
Joy will reach the horizon
Evilness will be deleted
Off of the face of earth
The minds of people will be cleansed
With the new water of life
I will move the world upside down
With the tip of my finger
My tears will create floods
My wings will be an ark
For the good to survive
And you I will make you climb
On the arch of my rainbow
I will play with you like
When you were a child
How you liked to bounce on my feet
Flinging you up in the air
Bouncing you on the tip of my toes
Holding you up high
Watching that smile that was painted
On your beautiful face
Beneath those big green eyes

Who will be the last victim of this mendacious contraption of mass psychosomatic paranoia – Islamophobia- which the WOT birthed? When will it end? Who will be the Temperance Lloyd of 1682 who will be written about by investigators of accused terrorists like Lord Chief Justice Sir Francis North who wrote, “The evidence against them was very full and fanciful, but their own confessions exceeded it. They appeared not only weary of their own lives but to have a great deal of skill to convict themselves.” If it soothes Futile, Dawkins (ABUH), Nick, Humanistitcus’ cheap conscience, tips the seat on their Eames Lounge and Ottoman reclining Islamophobia purchased chair, or pops the top of their Taste Of Diamond champagne bottle to blame Islam for the deaths of millions of innocent civilians in the Middle East from Western instruments of war, then I say, go ahead. The final judgment shall come to all including Dawkins, by God or his Ape!
As Charles McKay expounded a long time ago, an augury and portent of what we live through today:
“Europe expended millions of her treasures, and the blood of two millions of her children; and a handful of quarrelsome knights retained possession of Palestine for about one hundred years!”
“Every age has its peculiar folly; some scheme, project, or phantasy into which it plunges, spurred on either by the love of gain, the necessity of excitement, or the mere force of imitation. Failing in these, it has some madness, to which it is goaded by political or religious causes, or both combined. Every one of these causes influenced the Crusades, and conspired to render them the most extraordinary instance upon record of the extent to which popular enthusiasm can be carried. History in her solemn page informs us, that the Crusaders were but ignorant and savage men, that their motives were those of bigotry unmitigated, and that their pathway was one of blood and tears.”
Such enigmas as Futile pish and Dawkins (ABUH) are not such a dilemma for the human, or chimpanzee conscious (in respects to Dawkins) to fathom. They ignore or are totally clueless to the larger threat to freedom, the WOT and Islamophobia is its lethal injection into the masses. The last frontier of challenge they terrified to explore. Carl Jung explains such miscreants are not in possession of their own personalities nor educated, and as such, they are incapable of seeing “the shadow-side of their nature clearly, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more self-knowledge can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.” If Nick, Humanisticus, Futile, and Dawkins (ABUH) desire the freedom to be obnoxious bullies, I retort with Aristophanes’ quote, “you have all the characteristics of a popular politician: a horrible voice, bad breeding and a vulgar manner.” At least even Voltaire who condemned the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in his 1741 play Mehomet, later praised the virtues of the same prophet in his 1763 Treatise on Tolerance. I doubt any of the above miscreants have the honor to do the same.
Turkish: “Ananin amina kale kurar sabah aksam mac yaparim.”
The vagueness of the term, allows for it to be – oddly – linked to racism. This is horribly fallacious and dangerous. Grouping hostility and blatant racism and hate toward people (like non-believers who live like animals), in the same category as criticism, satirism toward ideas is dangerous for discussion and for the health of that idea where it exists in a secular framework upon which all ideas are up for the same treatment. It is also quite absurd.It is a right, and necessity to treat all authoritarian ideas – including religions – with ridicule and criticism.
The vagueness’ of the term Islamophobia is not so ambiguous, and it ‘is’ very much linked to the social phenomenon of racism. Unless racism is non-existent as well. One does not refuse to recognize racism despite slavery, segregation, lynchings, race riots, and more because the term used to describe the preceding is ‘vague’ according to ‘one’ person’s opinion. To do such, is not only unconscionable, but definitely misleading. Furthermore, it is fallacious to entirely ignore the similarities and differences as Futile bugger implies above, with the recalcitrant ‘odd’ remark coagulated with melodramatic ‘fallacious’ adjectives.
Let’s compare for the education of Futile scrubber and the almighty chimp Dawkins (ABUH).
The following is the Runnymede Trust Report’s definition. Let’s put Futile bugger’s damsel in distress to the Islamophobic test, shall we? We shall include quotes by his hero Dawkins (ABUH) under each criteria of Runnymede’s definition of Islamophobia.
1) Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change.
“Oh no? Then why do the perpetrators, and the mullahs and imams and ayatollahs and ‘scholars’, continually SAY it has everything to do with Islam? You may not think it has anything to do with Islam, but I prefer to listen to what the people responsible actually say. I would also love it if decent, ‘moderate’ Muslims would stand up and condemn the barbarisms that are carried out, or threatened, in their name.”
“All three of the Abrahamic religions are deeply evil if they take their teachings seriously. Islam is the only one that does.”
“Islam is surely the greatest man-made evil in the world today, and I think I’d feel a tiny bit more secure against the menacing threat of Islam and Islamic faith schools, under the Tories than under Labour”.
Yes, Christians are much much better. Their sacred texts may be just as bad, but they don’t act on them.”
“Quite the contrary. I think the problem [with Islam] is with the MAJORITY of Muslims, who either condone violence or fail to speak out against it. I am now praising the MINORITY who have finally decided to stand up for peace and nonviolence.”
2) Islam is seen as separate and ‘other’. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them.
“Haven’t read Koran so couldn’t quote chapter & verse like I can for the Bible. But often say Islam greatest force for evil today.” In a recorded interview, he described Islam as “One of the great evils in the world.”
“If only she were a bit more feisty she would cease to be a Muslim altogether – except that would make her an apostate, for which the Religion of Peace demands stoning. Indeed, you’ll probably find she’d be sentenced to 99 lashes just for the crime of being feisty.”
“Mehdi Hasan admits to believing Muhamed [sic] flew to heaven on a winged horse. And New Statesman sees fit to print him as a serious journalist.”
3) Islam is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist.
“All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.”
“I said that Islam is evil. I did NOT say Muslims are evil. Indeed, most of the victims of Islam are Muslims. Especially female ones.”
“Of course you can have an opinion about Islam without having read Qur’an. You don’t have to read Mein Kampf to have an opinion about Nazism.”
“Haven’t read Koran so couldn’t quote chapter & verse like I can for the Bible. But often say Islam greatest force for evil today.” In a recorded interview, he described Islam as “One of the great evils in the world.”
“Whenever I read an article like this, I end up shaking my head in bafflement. Why would anyone want to CONVERT to Islam? I can see why, having been born into it, you might be reluctant to leave, perhaps when you reflect on the penalty for doing to. But for a woman (especially a woman) voluntarily to JOIN such a revolting and misogynistic institution when she doesn’t have to always suggests to me massive stupidity.”
“Islam is comforting? Tell that to a woman, dressed in a bin bag [trash bag], her testimony worth half a man’s and needing 4 male witnesses to prove rape.”
4) Islam is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of terrorism and engaged in a ‘clash of civilisations’.
“Haven’t read Koran so couldn’t quote chapter & verse like I can for the Bible. But often say Islam greatest force for evil today.” In a recorded interview, he described Islam as “One of the great evils in the world.”
“Those people [the terrorists] were not mindless and they were certainly not cowards … On the contrary, they had sufficiently effective minds braced with an insane courage, and it would pay us mightily to understand where that courage came from. It came from religion. Religion is also, of course, the underlying source of the divisiveness in the Middle East, which motivated the use of this deadly weapon in the first place.”
“Paula’s letter in today’s Independent (see above) will doubtless provoke lots of fatuous bleats of “Oh but Islam is a peaceful religion.””
5) Islam is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage.
“I don’t think this is a matter for levity. Think of it as a foretaste of more serious things to come. They’ve already hounded Ayaan Hirsi Ali out of Holland and their confidence is growing with their population numbers, encouraged by the craven accommodationist mentality of nice, decent Europeans. This particular move to outlaw dogs will fail, but Muslim numbers will continue to grow unless we can somehow break the emetic link between generations: break the assumption that children automatically adopt the religion of their parents.”
“Just as ‘communities’ has become code for ‘Muslims’, ‘multiculturalism’ is code for a systematic policy of sucking up to their often loathsome ‘community leaders’: imams, mullahs, ‘clerics’, and the ill-named ‘scholars’.”
“Forgive me for not welcoming this judgment with unalloyed joy. If I thought the motive was secularist I would indeed welcome it. But are we sure it is not pandering to ‘multiculturalism’, which in Europe is code for Islam? And if you think Catholicism is evil . . .”
“Those people [the terrorists] were not mindless and they were certainly not cowards … On the contrary, they had sufficiently effective minds braced with an insane courage, and it would pay us mightily to understand where that courage came from. It came from religion. Religion is also, of course, the underlying source of the divisiveness in the Middle East, which motivated the use of this deadly weapon in the first place.”
“There are moves afoot to introduce sharia law into Britain, Canada and various other countries. I hope it is not too “islamophobic” of me to hope that the “interpretation” of sharia favoured by our local Muslim “scholars” will be different from the “interpretation” favoured by Iranian “scholars”. Oh but of course: “That’s not my kind of Islam.””
6) Criticisms made of the West by Islam are rejected out of hand.
“There is no such thing as Islamophobia.”
“Muslims seem to suffer from an active HUNGER to be offended. If there’s nothing obvious to be offended by, or ‘hurt’ by, they’ll go out looking for something. Are there any other similar examples we could think of, I wonder, not necessarily among religious groups?”
“I support Pat [Condell]’s stance on Islam. It is NOT based on racism like that of the BNP, and he is properly scathing about so-called ‘Islamophobia’.”
“Even if you are right (and I am not necessarily conceding the point) that FGM itself is not based on Islam, I strongly suspect that the British police turning a blind eye to it is very strongly based on islamophobia – the abject terror of being thought islamophobic.”
7) Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society.
Richard Dawkins’ quote on infamous Islamophobe Greet Wilders, “Geert Wilders, if it should turn out that you are a racist or a gratuitous stirrer and provocateur I withdraw my respect, but on the strength of Fitna alone I salute you as a man of courage, who has the balls to stand up to a monstrous enemy.”
(Greet Wilders has been quoted “I don’t hate Muslims, I hate Islam.” He has campaigned against what he terms as the “Islamization of the Netherlands” , is in favor of banning the Quran completely from the Netherlands, is against the building of mosques, compares the Quran to Mein Kampf, compared the prophet Mohammed (PBUH) as Satan, and worst of all he is a Zionist).
“Apologies if this has already been said here, but “Baroness” Warsi has no sensible qualifications for high office whatever. She has never won an election and never distinguished herself in any of the ways that normally lead to a peerage. All she has achieved in life is to FAIL to be elected a Member of Parliament, twice (on one occasion ignominiously bucking the swing towards her party). She was, nevertheless, elevated to the peerage and rather promptly put in the Cabinet and the Privy Council. The only reasonable explanation for her rapid elevation is tokenism. She is female, Muslim, and non-white – a bundle of three tokens in one, and therefore a precious rarity in her party. You might have suspected her lack of proper qualifications from the fatuous things she says, of which her speech in Rome is a prime example.”
8) Anti-Muslim hostility is seen as natural or normal.
All of Dawkins remarks!
I am more than ‘confident’ in applying the above term-Islamophobia- to Richard Dawkins (ABUH).
It is a curiosity as to why skanky Futile would chime in on such a horrendous person’s side? Perhaps he is not as bright and aware of the above? Or is it an unblind devotion to atheists whether right or wrong? Or is it he is a closet Phobe? I am unable to read minds, but perfunctory research on the aforementioned atheist bigot’s blog has indicated he meets 63 percent of the criteria above for Islamophobia, on record via his own blog and tweets. We have given a definition of Islamophobia above, and his hero Dawkins (ABUH) meets such criteria in generosity.
Swahili: “Una tombwa na punda.”
Furthermore, comparing racism to Islamophobia is not non-normative or so outrageous a proposition. As a historian and author of history, it is easy to identify that if we replace the word “”race” with “religion” in the definitions of racism, we would get a fit.
- a) Oxford English Dictionary defines racism as the “belief that all members of each religion possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that religion, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another religion or religions” and the expression of such prejudice
- b) Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines it as a belief that religion is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that religious differences produce an inherent superiority or inferiority of a particular racial religious group, and alternatively that it is also the prejudice based on such a belief
- c) Macquarie Dictionary defines racism as: “the belief that human religions have distinctive characteristics which determine their respective cultures, usually involving the idea that one’s own religion is superior and has the right to rule or dominate others.
If we were to peruse the plethora of comments I listed above by Dawkins (ABUH), he is a racist!
Is it not racist when Fox News allows a commentator Brigette Gabriel to proclaim that there is no chance of Muslims to fit into Western society?
“A practicing Muslim who goes to mosque every Friday, prays five times a day, and who believes that the Koran is the word of God, and who believes that Mohammed is the perfect man and (four inaudible words) is a radical Muslim.”
Ann Coulter wrote:
“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officials. We carpet bombed German cities and killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.”
Also in February 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft called Islam “a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sent his son to die for you.”
Is it not racism when religious places of worship are targeted?
Isn’t it racism when Jody Hice – elected to Congress – states that Muslims do not deserve 1st Amendment rights?
Isn’t it racism to tell Muslims to get out of the country they were born in bec ause they believe in Islam?
Isn’t it racist to warn that a terrorist attack will happen because a sheriff finds Qurans at the Mexican border?
Isn’t it racist to warn Christians- as a Congressman – that Muslims will decapitate Christians?
Isn’t it racist to claim that Muslims do not make or have not made contributions to society?
Isn’t it racism to deny people the right in public services because of an article of religious clothing?
The above is tiny dearth of evidence to suffice explaining what has been occurring for 14 years in the West – persistent discrimination and dehumanization and victimization of innocent Muslims! All of the comments above are absolutely incomprehensible as free speech and has as its sole objective: harassment, insult, dehumanization, and bullying of Muslims everywhere. Especially in the West. It’s xenophobia! It is racism!! And it is not subtle nor discreet. On the contrary, it is emetically open in a society which claims to be civilized! Islamophobia attributes violence, want of moderation, hypocrisy, lack of civilization, lower intelligence, and a constituency undeserving of equality with the secular and fundamental Christians, Jews, Atheists, and others of the West. It is a form of exclusiveness based on untrue premises and hyperboles hidden under the farcical claim to be obnoxious and provocative, to be racist, is freedom.
It is no doubt in consequence to the few terrorist acts by fringe extremists whose religion happen to be Islam and it is no doubt a childish ploy of making all Muslims a target since the West has problems with finding an enemy with a face(blame a war on an ideology – WOT not innocent Muslims and Islam). And it is also a sign of weakness, of capitulation to the fact that the West has lost the wars in the Middle East. And it is no doubt over-looked by WOT champions and law enforcement agencies because of the false immature idea that such pressure will result in moderate Muslims cooperating against extremists when in contrast Islamophobia creates the extremist recruits.
Nevertheless, let’s continue to prove Islamophobia is racism. Here in Syed Ibrahim’s article below, he describes ‘all’ Muslims as 3 types. They are stupid, good, and silent. He describes the stupid Muslim as one that defends his faith and have not discovered the truth. The good one is a Muslim that kills for his religion, that being the only description of a ‘good’ Muslim. The third, a silent Muslim is one that know s the truth that Islam is evil. Such attributing of traits or classifying all Muslims the same is commonplace these days.
What of the racism of the past against blacks?
Slave owners and the KKK believed African Americans were unable to make accomplishments as whites, they were born inferior in intellect. Many pointed toward the conditions of Africa to make such generalizations. Even scientists through Eugenics tried to prove it by cranium size until eventually the Chinese cranium was proven much larger than the European’s in which the hocus pocus science stopped. Throughout slavery and racism in America, pundits used the Bible to claim blacks were the seed of Cain and thus cursed to a life of labor instead of intellect.
Racism’s and slavery’s justification and creed was that white civilization was ‘chosen’ by God to lead while blacks were ‘chosen’ by God to follow. Coagulating science such as Eugenics to these myths were part of viewing the entire race as monolithic as Islamophobia does to Muslims today. An inferior race. Even today we may glance at articles on StormFront or books like The Bell Curve and publications such as Mankind Quarterly that still attempt to prove this monolithic trait of all blacks. And we can trace such racism by interpolating to Vitruvius of Rome and Hippocratus of Greece.
Even Voltaire stated:
It is a serious question among them whether the Africans are descended from monkeys or whether the monkeys come from them. Our wise men have said that man was created in the image of God. Now here is a lovely image of the Divine Maker: a flat and black nose with little or hardly any intelligence. A time will doubtless come when these animals will know how to cultivate the land well, beautify their houses and gardens, and know the paths of the stars: one needs time for everything
The Negro race is a species of men different from ours as the breed of spaniels is from that of greyhounds. The mucous membrane, or network, which Nature has spread between the muscles and the skin, is white in us and black or copper-colored in them
Immanuel Kant stated:
The yellow Indians do have a meager talent. The Negroes are far below them, and at the lowest point are a part of the American people
Thomas Jefferson stated:
Add to these, flowing hair, a more elegant symmetry of form, their own judgment in favour of the white, declared by their preference of them, as uniformly as is the preference of the Oran-ootan for the black women over those of his own species. The circumstances of superior beauty, is thought worthy of attention in the propagation of our horses, dogs, and other domestic animals; why not in that of man?
And what of Charles Darwin, Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile’s revered scientist? He stated:
The great break in the organic chain between man and his nearest allies, which cannot be bridged over by any extinct or living species, has often been advanced as a grave objection to the belief that man is descended from some lower form; but this objection will not appear of much weight to those who, from general reasons, believe in the general principle of evolution. Breaks often occur in all parts of the series, some being wide, sharp and defined, others less so in various degrees; as between the orang and its nearest allies—between the Tarsius and the other Lemuridae between the elephant, and in a more striking manner between the Ornithorhynchus or Echidna, and all other mammals. But these breaks depend merely on the number of related forms which have become extinct. At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world. At the same time the anthropomorphous apes, as Professor Schaaffhausen has remarked, will no doubt be exterminated. The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the negro or Australian and the gorilla.
At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate and replace throughout the world the savage races
Still to this day, blacks are often targets of a racial stereotypes about their culture being violent, inferior, and as if all blacks understand poverty and drugs.
Lisa Anderson recently published a study contrary to such stereotypes.
Compare the thoughts of past racists above with today’s comments by Islamophobes attacking Muslims and Islam, there is absolutely without a shred of doubt a linkage between Islamophobia and racism! They’re the same creatures, and from the same origin! As a half European, it is a nasty and weak flaw of my kind to judge as if superior to others. By the very mention of Futile bugger’s statement above that healthy ideas and innocuous discussion is treated equally under a ‘secular’ framework, he in fact meets each criterion in the aforementioned paragraph about racism. By discluding religion as an equitable framework to engender healthy ideas and safe discussion. I call that Islamophobic, Christianphobic, or theist phobic, bigotry! The implicit and tacit declaration of Futile bugger’s words is that only ‘secularism’ can achieve the preceding. That is generalizing, unfair, insensitive, pompous, wrong, and racist.
Inside of a religious, even fundamental environment, I have witnessed or participated in debates on a range of topics from homosexuality, monotheistic comparisons, even praised atheism and complimented its pundits as being far more intelligent for questioning convention, complained of dogma and extreme interpretations, questioned the Quran and hadeeths, etc. And such conversations were benign, and did not lead to death sentences due to apostasy or punishment or ended with me being a social pariah. I’ve been living in the Middle East without leaving for 5 years. And as a former Catholic, I did not discover any differences in the atmosphere of mosques here in the Middle East or in America that I would not meet in a Catholic church. Yet still a few have decided to provoke the Muslim communities in the West via condemnation, insulting antics, disenfranchisement, discrimination, and violence. All non-existent before the 9-11 attacks in 2001. Moreover, so many of my intellectual debates here in the Middle East with Muslims entailed no satire or insults or criticism as Dawkins (ABUH) or Futile shite so naively and cretinously contrive with a ribbon of loose assumptions. The former admits never reading the Quran, and the latter keeps one on his shelf solely to quote out of context, what a conniving group of misfits.
Rather than emphasize the positive accomplishments or contributions of Islam, all we painfully read are negative pathetic attention seeking hyperboles from both miscreants. The truth, Islam in the West is just as progressive as other Monotheistic religions, and often moreso than Futile and Dawkin’s atheists. In addition, identifying and attaching the acts and words and practices of Muslims in foreign countries to Western Muslims is replete with common sense and racist. It is like brandishing African Americans or those in the UK the same as Africa. It not only explains why the UK is listed the second most racist nation in the world, but it portends that Muslims in the West are not influenced by Western values or that government laws do not deter implementation of foreign ones. However, such ignorance and lack of understanding by a disturbing number in the Western world is a true litmus test of the wisdom and freedom of the West. It is a challenge to the West’s principles of equality under its economic and political systems. The West claims to have the best systems in place, does it not? Whatever the intention of this superiority complex, it is truly lost! Therein is where I persistently remind the West, Islamophobia is destroying yourselves from within. With the help of a Futile tyke, an insensitive brutish bigot. I think it may e time to draw up a palimpsest and create better systems than Capitalism, Democracy, Monarchy, Republicanism.
Islamophobia was/is not concocted to stifle dissenting or fringe opinions to convention. Islamophobia is a neologism to decipher the riddle of what is transpiring across the Western world in regards to the disenfranchisement, discrimination, and violence against innocent Muslims. The word Islamophobia was created to protect a minority from a historical axiom of flawed human behavior. And according to statistics and news, the impetus is very much deserved. Islamophobia does not endanger freedom of expression, the legislation on behest of the WOT do. In addition, healthy and safe discussion and constructive criticism with tact is diametric to satire and criticism, and more effective and productive. What made Neanderthal anyone think satire and criticism to be contributive to a healthy idea and safe discussion? What made an utter rainless toad believe that a religion of minorities has any ‘authority’ to significantly influence or control Western society? What made a waste of man mayo opine that Islam is any different from other dogmas? The answers to the preceding questions may truly be a rubric’s cube. What makes the West terrified from Muslims comprising 5 percent of the European population? Pity. “Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.” – Abraham Joshua Heschel
Racism, like sexism, is the institutional perpetuation of social privilege based on biological differences. There is no doctrine involved. To claim racism, alongside Islam, is like claiming a deep hatred for all people with brown hair, if we learn that most Muslims have brown hair. It is absurd. My contention is simple; to push discussion, criticism, satire, ridicule of an authoritarian idea – be it religious or political – out of the public sphere of acceptability, has the opposite effect. It creates a taboo, and it is latched onto by dangerous fanatics like those of the EDL, who undoubtedly do mix their dislike for a faith, with racism and Nationalism.I doubt we would be degraded as bigots, if we were to mock or criticise the doctrines of conservatism. I see no difference.
The above assumption that racism has no doctrine is ahistorical and must be encaged in order to not taint reality with such pompous eccentricity. The doctrine of racism in America’s past was the dogma of Christianity – God chose whites as superior in every faculty of measurement- amalgamated with nationalism – Manifest Destiny that God ‘chose’ white Christians to wield privilege over lands owned by non-whites- employed and defined under the heuristics of who was Christian or not and the biological differences of the color of skin, and hair including linguistic differences. In Nazi Germany that heuristic was color of hair and eyes and skin. Nevertheless, Germany felt its religion and race and entitlement to land was superior to all non-whites and Jews. In Israel, the heuristic is religion and language yet the idea of superiority of race and religion over others and entitlement to land, the same. Religion has always been one of those heuristics of racism.
From Reconstruction through the Civil Rights period in America , including now in Israel; the emetic belief that segregation, disenfranchisement, violence, and discrimination was an exigent evil to thwart the subjugation and elimination of the superior race, superior religion, and consequently white America or Zionist Israel, was the prevalent theme of survival for a City on the Hill as Winthrop would put it. It was the same pervasive formula applied by the Nazi extremists in Germany.
In America, such perturbing ideology traces its route from Thomas Jefferson in his Notes on the State of Virginia to the Black Slave Codes of the Antebellum South to segregation in the apartheid South to the Atlanta Constitution of the KKK and further extrapolated to the Turner Diaries found in the possession of Timothy McVeigh and even in Zionist history to Theodore Herzl’s Der Judenstaat . As seen, the idea of a superior race or religion or civilization does not begin with America or Israel. We see its traces in Europe with Immanuel Kant, Voltaire, David Hume, Francis Galton, Charles Darwin, and to Greece with Hippocratus, Aristotle, all the way to the Babylonian Talmud. Such doctrine is the same. It proclaimed that the history of a race and/or religion, when juxtaposed with the ‘other’, indicated that the former was superior and latter inferior-the former’s religion superior and the latter’s a fake-the former had entitlement to land and the latter none. There is a tautology throughout history of this doctrine of racism, and religion has always been a prominent characteristic in defining the superiority of that superior race.
Furthermore, to claim racism is solely institutional is entirely incorrect. For example, the racism in the South was also De Facto (social) as opposed to De Jure(institutional). How? Lynchings of black offenders were normal in the South but not state sanctioned. Manipulation of the voting process by white individuals in certain authorities of power, by requiring blacks to take voting tests was not a law but practiced. Police officers that refused to file complaints or looked the other way to offenses by whites against blacks was not a law, but commonplace in the apartheid South. Blacks giving way on a sidewalk to a passing white couple was societal and not institutional. Emmet Till murdered for being in a white shop and speaking with a white female was also societal racism. Therefore, racism has a doctrine and it is not only institutional but societal as well. The doctrine of racism has lasted throughout time and societal racism is the less recorded yet more pernicious form of racism. Anyone who would be so ignorant as to claim otherwise would truly not be taken seriously by an undergraduate history major at an online university. “People know about the Klan and the overt racism, but the killing of one’s soul little by little, day after day, is a lot worse than someone coming in your house and lynching you.”
Samuel L. Jackson
And we see the same in Islamophobia today. We see societal racism against Muslims as employment discrimination, moments of disenfranchisement of Muslims from partaking in public and private services open to the general public, law enforcement and government agencies looking the other way to crimes against Muslims or feigning incompetence in investigating those crimes or even recording them, Muslim women told what they can and cannot wear, public media insults and dehumanization of Islam and Muslims, claims that Islam and Muslims are inferior to Western civilization and Christianity, lugubrious displays of deaths of Westerners by Islamic extremists while Muslim deaths by westerners or Zionist Israelis are never mentioned in the media, and the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Palestine for the entitlement of land to the Jewish religion. Attributes of intellectual inferiority, violence, and more are also attached to Islam and Muslims publicly. It’s all the same!! Peruse the history of the West, compare it to now, we see a tautology which is undeniable! Is this the future of humanity, of a better world!? I desire to think prudently with more of an open mind and respect to Liberty. With a more illuminating conscience and for better purpose than whining child desiring to be an Ape or obnoxious!
In regards to Futile’s tacit and incredulous claim that Islamophobia’s creation would only add weapons for real racists to wield; that is ahistorical, profoundly farcical, and bluntly misleading. It is ahistorical because racism against blacks didn’t cease until government intervention and the term ‘racism’ was popularized. How shall it be different with Islamophobia? It is farcical because such postulation engenders allowing the exact people responsible for proliferating Islamophobia to continue with no responsibility nor regard for the violent acts and discrimination against Muslims in consequence to their hate mongering. It is misleading because Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) as I have demonstrated, are racists. They’re attacking Islamophobia because it refers to them! As Martin Luther King stated, “It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can stop him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.”
I am quite unaware of what doesn’t constitute “Islamophobia“. Is it okay for example, to suggest that Islam, like Catholicism, is inherently homophobic? In fact, Hasan himself in an article on gay marriage, writes: “As a Muslim, I struggle with the idea of homosexuality – but I oppose homophobia.” – Irony at its finest. Homosexuality isn’t an ‘idea’. Islam is an idea. Sexuality is a natural spectrum much like eye colour, or hair colour, or skin colour. Consider a white supremacist saying: “As a white supremacist, I struggle with the idea of being black, but I oppose racism“. Irony.
I placed the definition twice above. I hope you understand what constitutes Islamophobia now 🙂
If not, here are links below. I am a teacher, but I can’t help you after this.
Here is Islamophobia for Dummies. Enjoy 🙂
Hungarian: “Rosseb egye meg.”
Homosexuality is not such a taboo subject in Islam as off one’s rocker Futile would suggest above and Dawkins (ABUH) concur. On the contrary, I am a supporter of LGBT. I am not gay, have ‘many’ great gay colleagues from my university, in fact three of them some of my closest and dear friends, yet it doesn’t mean I am not Muslim. Though in the world of the Chimp (ABUH) and Futile nutter, such tolerance would make me a kafir (disbeliever). interestingly not to my Muslim cohorts or colleagues. Perhaps I am lucky, or things are not as they appear in regards to the aforementioned critics. Perhaps Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile nutter are the real judgmental extremists? It would probably be shocking to mention 5 Arab countries have no laws forbidding homosexuality and others rarely employ the ones they do have running on a don’t ask, don’t tell policy as the US military. Furthermore, the largest Islamic organization in America , the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), joined a broad interfaith coalition, calling ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act proposed in US Congress) a “measured, common sense solution that will ensure workers are judged on their merits, not on their personal characteristics like sexual orientation or gender identity.” hmmm. Doesn’t seem Muslims are as homophobic as gay Futile and gay Dawkins (ABU) would love others to believe. In regards to rights of homosexuals, in the Middle East they have no rights in Iran and Afghanistan and Saudia Arabia where execution could occur for ‘coming out’. However, the number of hate crimes against the LGBT community in the Middle East is practically non-existent when compared to the UK and the US.
In regards to Mehdi Hassan’s comment, I don’t get it. Sorry. Hasan stated he doesn’t approve of homosexuality but is opposed to the intolerance of homosexuality. Makes perfect sense to me. And in regards to your analogy, I think a white supremacist would naturally struggle with the idea that he is black. And Hasan is not a white supremacist. Sorry. Futile bugger looks like one though-skinhead. True reason to become so enraged is not in consequence of Hassan’s remarks but in result of God not imposing lalophobia upon Futile skinhead.
What is the cause of Futile dimwit’s lustful antipathy toward Mehdi Hasan? It’s not normal! The dimwit published two articles on Mehdi Hasan describing infidels as cattle, and then taking some length to explain the harshness of Mehdi Hassan’s use of the word Kafir in his blog (at both times Hasan used these terms to promote tolerance amongst Muslims). Yet, not one peep when UK Tory Leader Brian Banister wished all the ‘infidels’ in English a Merry Christmas ‘or whatever you celebrate’ on television. Not one publication about Cambridge University theologian Dr Tim Winter apologized on May 2 after footage emerged showing him calling homosexuality the “ultimate inversion” and an “inexplicable aberration”. If Futile is in fact for free speech, why waste his time picking on a popular Muslim journalist like Mehdi Hasan -who concidentially has a problem with his alter ego Dawkins (ABUH)- and instead tackle the UK 1986 Public Order Act which outlaws insults. And why hasn’t section 3 and 3a of that act been applied toward Dawkins (ABU) and Futile yet? Those aforementioned sections clearly state that any comment or material which may incite racial hatred is a punishable offense. Let me guess, Muslims are not an identity, excuse me , race 🙂 If Futile dimwit and Dawkins (ABU) are freedom lovers, why are they not tackling the campaign led by singer Will Young to illegalize insulting homosexuals in the UK with the phrase “that’s so gay”. Why not a single publication on the Snooper’s Charter granting extra surveillance on e-mails, telephone communications, and internet? Futile has published blogs calling Michael Moore (anti-war activist) a shame to the left, published a blog supporting the two presidential architects of the War OF Terrorism, and even attempted a pathetic try to coax Muslims to support the UK in this crazed hysteria called the War OF Terrorism by publishing a blog of a Muslim heroine, Noor Inayat Khan, in WWII (such patronizing and condescending act smacks of racism! Tacit within such is the message – be a good Muslim. Fight and die for imperialism and us white folk in the UK) The only Inayat Khan I revere is the non-violent Sufi in the UK from India, her father who no doubtedly would have disapproved of Futile dimwit and Dawkins (ABUH) racism.
Hazrat Inaya Khan –
Fighting with another makes war, but struggling with one’s self brings peace.
Peace-making is much more difficult than war-making
To treat every human being as a shrine of God is to fulfill all religion
I think Jose Marti has the best response to the likes of Futile dimwit and Dawkins (ABUH)
“To busy oneself with what is futile when one can do something useful, to attend to what is simple when one has the mettle to attempt what is difficult, is to strip talent of its dignity.”
Is it okay to simply argue that Islam is misogynistic (as I believe it is… as I believe Christianity is)? Is it okay to suggest that a secular UK is no place for horrendously patriarchal Shariah courts? Is it racist to say that punishment for apostasy or blasphemy, is unfathomably wrong? What qualifies as “Islamophobic“? Is it hate, or violence aimed at Muslims individuals? Is this not better defined as anti-Muslim hate (which I don’t deny exists)? Or is it distaste for the idea of Islam itself? If we are to alienate criticism of Islam as a concept or as doctrines, is this not a form of positive discrimination that has the opposite effect of what it sets out to do?
It is quiet fine for freedom to voice one’s insults and hyperboles, as long as one accepts them in reciprocity. However, to be considered seriously, without the suspicion one is a clueless bigot, that individual actually has to make certain there are valid reasons to such generalizations. One also should distinguish between the positives and negatives of each system of beliefs, secular and religious and atheist. And Futile infant and Dawkins (ABUH) are wanting. Otherwise, it is the natural reaction of every normal human to query whether one is simply manipulating freedom of expression while claiming equal hate amongst all religions, in order to conceal one’s true aspiration of which the War OF Terrorism has impregnated his or her small mind. Legitimizing the WOT. Furthermore, challenging or rebuking the name of a form of discrimination, disenfranchisement, and violence does not affect the necessity to deter and resolve such drastic and detrimental phenomena. Whether you label it Islamophobia or anti-Muslim hate, the effects are still omniscient. And it needs to be addressed. Finally, claiming freedom of expression to be vocal with one’s bigotry and racism is just a childish and monumental chicanery to revel responsibility and morality of a society as a whole to its minority constituents. Nearly all of the claims made by Futile infant are melodramatic hyperboles, and a distance spanning the Pan American Highway from any premise of veracity or significance. And this worries me much. Knowing such stupidity fills the ears of an unsuspecting audience gives me somniphobia.
Italian: “Cagati in mano e prenditi a schiaffi.”
If we are to use the suffix “Phobia” to refer to criticism or mockery also, then we can also call out many religious doctrines and their adherents for being Feminismophobic Democracyophobic, Americanophobic, Westophobic? Most chapters of the Qur’an begin with a vivid description of how we as non-believers deserve nothing but torture. Is this not Kuffarophobic? It’s certainly horrifically bigoted.
I concur with Futile in a sense, I have a deep suspicion and a natural antipathy toward suffixes and consequential callous actions taken on part of them. Such disgusting white hubris cloaked racism -in the past and now- which is a natural inclination by Europeans to judge white civilization as superior over the third world, and colored people, and other religions. This farcical tautology that civilization’s worst threat originates from the poor and weak majority of the globe, the barbarian. As one of mix European blood, I must aver, I am frankly disgusted to the bowels of my conscience and thoroughly convinced that the psychosomatic manias of such a race as mine, is a plague upon humanity and the innocent world. How many unsuspecting innocent humans have uselessly and tragically met their fates in consequence to a war on Fascism, Communism, Terrorism, and more Zoroaster/Manichaean Don Quixote Crusade bullsh## of an ‘us’ against ‘them’ nightmare of white superiority-white civilization? Alexander Downes in Targeting Civilians highlights in his statistical survey, over 60% of those dying in modern wars are civilians.
I query to all! Can Monarchy, Republicanism, Democracy, Capitalism survive without persistently chasing the quintessential Barbarian as C.P. Cavafy’s poem Waiting for the Barbarians? May I remind that Democracy and Republicanism were prior failed ideologies as sudden as they adopted the democidal formula of Empire. Why shall we succumb to the same once eradicated flawed beliefs again as if the West is Shakespeare, and we the stage full of jests? And this European ‘superiority’ complex today dressed in Versachi/Armani chainmail under corporate banners is manifested under the vernacular of religion, secularism, Atheism, Democracy, Republicanism, Monarchy, Capitalism, freedom, and other perverted specious names which mean nothing without a jingoistic foreign policy that oppresses the 3rd world outside of its authors geographical borders? Europeans and their posterity today make a nasty dubious habit of comparing human rights of Western Civilization against the ‘corrupt’ 3rd world regimes. I say nay! It is a false, unworthy, and inaccurate juxtaposition when the narratives of genocide and Empire be omitted. 3rd world nations are NOT invading other nations as the West! 3rd world nations have not genocided and stolen land successfully – with the near exception of WWI and WII – as the West to afford the hedonism and privilege-
freedom/secularism/capitalism/Democracy/Republicanism/Monarchy- of the West!!
Since 1776, the US has invaded over 70 nations. And the sun finally did set over the British Empire. Nevertheless. The US has been accused of genocide of the native indigenous of North America while raping their lands via forced illegal immigration and settlements. The UK and France in Australia and Canada accused of the same. And now, the US and the UK is accused of funding the same in Palestine today. Is it coincidence!? Are we ‘that’ obtusely obsequious and asininely brainwashed wherein our senses no longer function!? Has hedonism and brainwashing shut down the human nature of inclination within us!? Not some of us! And what say of the fruits of secularism, freedom, Monarchy, Democracy, Republicanism, Capitalism? 21 million in World War I, 60 million in WW II, millions in the Cold War, 2 million in the War OF Terrorism. When shall humanity be safe? When may we enjoy the world endowed to us by our common creator? Have we tried something better?
As history shows, a ‘phobia’ has had less blood with its induction. On the contrary, this neologism warns and protects human life without restricting freedoms. I’m not so perturbed by its use. However, humanity should be terrorized and deathly afraid when a European ‘ism’ is quickly introduced by European propaganda mills in their media and universities. It translates into restrictions of freedom in the form of Alien and Sedition acts, xenophobic discrimination and De Facto violence and dehumanization of minorities, innocent human lives destroyed, etc. It is my solemn yet honest declaration that Europeans have forfeited the right-the legitimacy- to rule and be humanity’s leader or philanthroper in the world today! The cup is filled!! We need a new leader. A new system ,economic and political. We need to capitulate to the cliché there is none better, without hesitation, pull out the palimpsests and allow us to drastically begin a new dawn for humanity NOW before the West engages its normal tautology of apologies and high technological crocodile tears of brainwashing us into gullibly believing all the human lives destroyed by these ‘isms’ was an unavoidable conflict of evil and good. As if human decisions do not turn the pages of history, only a white God is the author!! And such altruism results in the West living above the standards of its victims in the 3rd world.
In retort to the imaginary claim that ‘most chapters of the Qur’an begin with a vivid description of how we as non-believers deserve nothing but torture,” I respond like with Nick Futile, prove it 🙂 The word torture only occurs once in the Quran and it derives from what people from a city said.
Dawkins (ABUH), Bigoticus, Futile barmy, Nick himself, and other Islamophobes replicate the same weak tactic, cherry-pick single verses out of holy texts -absent of its context- while disregarding the context and other positive verses. It’s the same as Yellow Journalism. Such was the case when I refuted, without question, the farce claim by Nick a venal hyena when he stated, “I challenge anybody to find me a sentence, passage, chapter, idea, tenet in Mein Kampf that repulses them which similarly can’t be found in the Qur’an.”
Just as Islamophobes callously condemn the lack of secularism in penury infested Muslim countries while entirely ignoring the contribution of secularism by Averroes to Darkened Europe, they condemn the Quran and Muslims for a modicum of cause while refusing to acknowledge its more positive points. Worse, there is the consistent false and unsupported assumption that secularism is not as justifiably deserving of the same scrutiny. As if secularism is superior. Let us compare…
And what will make you comprehend what the uphill road is? (It is) the setting free of a slave, or the giving of food in a day of hunger, to an orphan having relationship, or to the poor man lying in the dust. [Al-Quran 90: 012-016]
Hadeeth: “Visit the ill, feed the hungry and release the slaves”.
The first African American abolitionist David Walker in his Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World declared with meticulous Western sources and observations of his time, American slavery was the ‘worst’ form of slavery in history. After publishing a thesis and book on the former’s publication, I concur. Furthermore, the cold concrete propaganda of American slavery was that God almighty had cursed Ham and Africans -because of their black skin- were the posterity of Ham, which consequently meant blacks were divinely ordained or cursed to an inhumane life of perpetual slavery. Augmented by this manipulation of the Bible was the fact that priests and preachers of the American South also defended the institution of slavery by declaring nowhere in the Bible, did Jesus or any prophet condemn it!
Well, it is condemned in the Quran and by hadeeths.
“And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.” Quran 9:6
Islamophobes claim that the Quran commands that Muslims kill disbelievers (kufar). I don’t think so. Is this one of the many quotes the Islamophobes addressed in this diatribe have ignored?
“We ordained …that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.” (Quran 5:32)
To kill ‘any’ human unjustly is forbidden by the Quran. Islamophobes always ignore this quote.
“Have you considered him who calls the judgment a lie? That is the one who treats the orphan with harshness, And does not urge (others) to feed the poor.” [Al-Quran 107:1-3]
“Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: ” The most excellent sadaqah consists in your satisfying the hungry stomach.” (Al-Tirmidhi 19:46)
In the Quran, it specifically demands all followers to bear responsibility for the poor. Perhaps the West should read the Quran.
Amongst the industrialized nations of the world, the UK and America have the highest poverty rates. And if they are not caring for their poor, they are incarcerating them. They also have the highest rates of incarceration in the world, with the US being the highest.
“Believers! Do not devour one another’s possessions wrongfully; rather than that, let there be trading by mutual consent.” Quran 4:29
The Quran wishes that Muslims trade with mutual consent and benefit. War should not be the conduit in which trade agreements are reached.
The West has coerced nations across the world to trade – not by mutual consent- the 3rd worlds’ resources for reduced prices. If those nations refuse, they cease to exist under the curse of a Sykes-Picot. Let’s take a brief perfunctory look:

Need I continue to Africa and the Middle East from the CIA removal of Kwame Nkrumah and Patrice Lumumba to Mohammed Mossadegh?
Perhaps the West should read the Quran.
“We assigned to every prophet an enemy, Satan human and jinn to inspire fancy words to one another in order to deceive – Had your Lord willed so, they would not have done it, so leave them and their fabrications”. (Qur’an 6:112)
Another quote from the Quran about tolerance toward non-believers or ‘kufar’ that Islamophobes addressed in this diatribe neglect.
“And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they used to do.” Surah 6: Al-An’am: 108
“O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one’s] faith. And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.” Surah 49: Al-Hujurat: 11-12
Here are more quotes about tolerance in the Quran. Perhaps the above passages are precisely why Muslims across the world, have not responded in like manner against other religions or atheism despite the 14 years of persistent insults cowardly splashed upon all followers of Islam by Islamophobes and Zionists. The West could learn about tolerance, from Islam. Especially with its proliferating cancer – Islamophobia.
“Who is there to forbid the beauty which God has brought forth for His creatures, and the good things from among the means of sustenance?”Surah 7: Al-A`raf: 32
The quote above grants all followers of Islam the right to enjoy life and life’s pleasures. This includes freedom, rights, and wealth.
“[They are] those who have been evicted from their homes without right – only because they say, “Our Lord is Allah .” And were it not that Allah checks the people, some by means of others, there would have been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which the name of Allah is much mentioned. And Allah will surely support those who support Him. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.” Qur’an, 22:40
Perhaps the West could learn from the Quran, about how vandalizing and attacking revered places of worship is strictly forbidden. Even of places for worship by those who make victims and refugees of Muslims. Palestinians have been evicted from their homes – many of them Muslims- but we are required by the Quran to not destroy any places of worship out of vindication. And we haven’t.
However, Israel has destroyed 1/3 of the mosques in Gaza. And mosques are daily vandalized in the West.
“Allah does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you over religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. Allah loves those who are just. Allah merely forbids you from taking as friends those who have fought you over religion and driven you from your homes and who supported your expulsion. Any who take them as friends are wrongdoers.” Al-Mumtahanah 60: 8-9
The quote above states that kindness toward enemies is required by Muslims. Given the fact that the largest refugee population – Palestinian-was created by the West and Israel, we’re not to be friends with either. However, we must be kind and just toward them.
Could the West learn about such tolerance in regards to Islamophobia? The West and Israel are still persecuting their former victims.
“For every one of you did we appoint a law and a way, and if Allah had pleased he would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds” 5:48
Islam commands that when doing good deeds, race and religion and nationalism – the differences between humans- should never deter such pursuit. The West could learn how to work with Muslim organizations and charities in doing good deeds since the latter have been consistently targeted for harassment or shut down consistently for 14 years.
“You shall maintain CHASTITY, not committing adultery, nor taking secret lovers. Anyone who rejects faith, all his work will be in vain, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.” [Quran 5:5]
“Those who intend to divorce their wives shall wait four months (cooling off); if they change their minds and reconcile, then GOD is Forgiver, Merciful. If they go through with the divorce, then GOD is Hearer, Knower.” Quran [2:226-227]
“If a couple fears separation, you shall appoint an arbitrator from his family and an arbitrator from her family; if they decide to reconcile, GOD will help them get together. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.” Quran 4:35
The divorce rate in America is 53% and 42% in the UK of first marriages end in divorce. The Kinsey Reports asserted that about one half of American men and a quarter of women had committed adultery. The Janus Report on Sexual Behavior in America also reported that one third of married men and a quarter of women have had an extramarital affair.
The rates of divorce and adultery are very low in the Middle East and honor killings – though they exist – rarely occur (5,000 deaths per year). The secular West and atheist countries are not immune though. A total of ten women in the US have been executed by stoning since 1986 with two incidents occurring in Mexico.
Of the top stoning executors in the world, number one falls to Atheist China, second to the West’s enemy Iran, third to the West’s ally Saudi Arabia, fourth to the newly elected Democratic and Western secular government of Iraq, and in fifth place (*drum roll*) the US. And North Korea-another Atheist country- is listed by other sources as being in the top 5.
The West can learn from Islam and the Middle East. And yet the Middle East could learn from the West in regards to why honor killings -which is tribal and nothing affiliated with Islam- is wrong.
“You shall not force your girls to commit prostitution, seeking the materials of this world, if they wish to be chaste. If anyone forces them, then God, seeing that they are forced, is Forgiver, Merciful.” [Quran 24:33]
According to prostitution statistics, the countries with the most prostitutes are atheist and Christian secular nations such as China, India, Russia, United States, Philippines, Mexico, Germany, in fact the Muslim country with the highest prostitution rate ranks at number 20 while the UK at 14.
Germany is now considered the prostitution capital of the world.
In regards to rape, the highest incidents by country are the US first, India second, the UK third, then Mexico, Germany, Sweden, and Russia. And despite the news reports focusing on rape in Egypt, according to the rates of reported rape incidents, Asia is the lowest and Europe and America the highest.
Again, the West could learn from Islam and the Middle East.
“O You who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones and (divination by) arrows are an abomination of Satan’s handiwork. Avoid (such abominations) that you may prosper.” (5:90)
The highest cocaine use rates in the world are the Isle of Man, Scotland, Spain, the UK, Italy, Wales, the US, and Australia. According to CBS news, the Middle East has the lowest percentages of drug abuse while European countries led by the US have the highest tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drug abuse.
Being fair, I admit that Iran has the highest reported drug addiction rate as a result of the outflow of opiates from Afghanistan. Though capital punishment remains for drug traffickers, the use of opiates is not criminalized, in other words users are not locked up but treated in hospitals and offered rehabilitation services in what some term as the most progressive approach toward drug addiction in the world. Drug users are arrested and incarcerated in the West instead of treated. Which sounds more progressive?
The West could learn from the Middle East and Islam.
“Now, indeed, We have conferred dignity on the children of Adam.” Surah 17: Al-Isra’:70
All humans must be treated with dignity according to Islam. We are all equal under the common original father, Adam. In fact, Malcolm X was precisely correct that the race problem in the West between blacks and whites, does not exist here in the Middle East. After 5 continuous years in the Middle East, I have seen numerous families with children – siblings – one of white and the other of black skin, so as to make judgment of relationships by the heuristic of skin color entirely confusing. The mixing of the races is much more prevalent here in the Middle East than the West in my opinion.
The West could learn from the Middle East and Islam.
“And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the cause of God, and for those weak, ill treated, and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from you one who will protect; and raise for us from you one who will help!” (Quran 4:75)
Islam makes the distinction between the powerful and weak. It is an obligation of Muslims to fight on the side of the oppressed, weak, and poor against the powerful.
If we look at what occurred to Palestinians, we may get a more vivid picture of how the West and Israel are lost from God. Palestinians have been displaced from their ancient homes and lands by massacres in which the Zionists – not Jewish but imperialists- used massacres to make the Palestinian people flee from their homes. Furthermore, even the CIA reports of the 1930s and 1940s stated Zionists murdered innocent Christians and Jews who protested their treatment of Muslim Palestinians . The CIA also noted that through illegal immigration, the state of Israel was created.
A once strong and mighty nation, known throughout centuries before the Roman Empire through the annals of Greek pages and even in the days of polytheism before monotheism touched the Holy land- has now materialized into the largest refugee population of the world, spread out into countries of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and more places. These refugees, a noble people recorded throughout centuries of history tolerate 2nd and 3rd class citizenship in their countries of refuge and are prevented from returning to Palestine. And those Palestinians currently in Israel are disenfranchised and discriminated against as 2nd class citizens in a system of apartheid under Israel. We are speaking of universal disenfranchisement in consequence to the formation of an apartheid government which claims to be a Democracy but simultaneously declares itself a Jewish theocracy via numerous publications and statements by its politicians.
And what makes matters hypocritically worse, some Christians in America support Israel through the US congress but fail to acknowledge or recognize the fact that 56% of Palestinian Christians – the first Christians in history- are not allowed to return to Palestine and the Christians within Israel are daily complaining of being disenfranchised as well.
In Gaza and Lebanon, Hamas and Hezbollah fight for their Palestinian people’s dignity, honor, and right to their lands. And Israel mercilessly bombs their mosques, children, hospitals, schools, and surrounds them -in a blockade of goods going in and out- with the most advanced military weapons of the modern century to suffocate the economy and daily lives of combatant and non-combatant alike, while continuously displacing more and more Palestinians from their homes within Israel and replacing Palestinians with Israeli settlements. It’s genocide! And the West funds Israel, so it funds genocide!!
Where is the mercy? Where is the compassion and justice? Where is the West’s and Israel’s God? Their honor? Their freedom?
The West could learn from Islam.
“Whosoever wakes up (in the morning) feeling that he is secure in his community, free from ailments and diseases in his body, and has enough provision for a single day, it is as if he owns the entire world.”
Islam wishes all Muslims to veer away from hedonism, materialism, and to be humble and meek. To enjoy that which life gives you not of material wealth, but in the wealth and riches of relationships between you and another. Of you and the human family, working together to accomplish good deeds and make positive contributions to human kind.
If we look at the West, we see famous singers and actresses and actors purchasing homes which could feed the poor in developed nations for a year or more. Some of the ‘rich and famous’ purchase gold toilets, a new plastic buttocks or breasts, vehicles with gold or diamond covered rims, private jets, etc. Is this not a form of economic injustice in itself? While there are humans suffering from starvation and without equitable health care and worse, the few of the opulent in the West enjoy lives of hedonism equal to King Solomon. What justice is in that? What God is in that? What humanity is in that?
“So regard the life and property as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.”
Crime statistics in the world report that the highest are the US, Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Canada, Chile, Poland, Spain, and finally the Netherlands. According to Nation Master, the UK should be third. The highest murder rates are in Honduras, El Salvador, Cote d’Ivoire, Jamaica, and Venezuela.
The above are not Muslim countries. The West could learn from Islam.
“A person would not be held responsible for his confession, if you inflicted pain upon him or scared him or imprisoned him [to obtain the confession].”
Islam forbids torture. The West in military camps such as Abu Ghraib, Camp Bucca, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and more have tortured many innocent people. The US Senate Intelligence report recently released stated that torture was systematic by the CIA and produced no useful intel.
The West could learn from Islam.
“Allah grant me knowledge of the ultimate nature of things”
“Seek knowledge even though it be in China.”
Despite Western criticism of Islam being inherently backwards – lost in the Dark ages – Islam commands Muslims to seek knowledge in science and arts. Islam is not regressive, it is progressive.
In the above, those who do not follow the Quran and hadeeths are not Muslims. And that includes extremists such as Al Qaeda and ISIS. We see above that Dawkins (ABU) , Bigoticus, Nick, and Futile omit the positive verses and avoid the ailments or diseases of Western society, of secularism, in their callous conclusions. They declare an entire religion as innately inferior, violent, and evil. Without accepting secularism and Atheism’ own faults and weaknesses. They do so graciously without placing a mirror up to themselves. And it is also questionable as to whether the UK is really secular, since the official state religion is the Church of England. And whether other nations are indeed theocracies when the only theocracies in the world are Iran and the Vatican.
Therefore, I say the worst acts of inhumanity done by the most numerically abundant and most tragically significant, is the ignorance of secularism. Futile bumhead, Dawkins the chimp, Nick his mother, Bigoticus, and other Islamophobes are guilty of blandishing all religious followers as dogmatists, while simultaneously refusing to judge their own dogmas – secularism, Democracy, Republicanism, Monarchy, Atheism, and all other white European narcissistic futile ideas coagulated in the War OF Terrorism.
When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.
“We humans are naturally disposed to worship gods and heroes, to build our pantheons and valhallas. I would rather see that impulse directed into the adoration of daft singers, thicko footballers and air-headed screen actors than into the veneration of dogmatic zealots, fanatical preachers, militant politicians and rabid cultural commentators.”
It is my belief, that the freedom to satirise, mock, criticise, as well as question all authoritarian ideas, including all religions that themselves are openly critical of how those outside the faith live their lives, is the cornerstone of a progressive, and reasonable society. Indeed, the freedom to criticise authoritarian ideas is essential. These ideas include the freedom to satirise and criticise and question deeply held political ideals, including my own. We must not allow religions to be free from satire, nor criticism, simply because it is cloaked in ‘faith’. To close them to criticism/satirism by using State controls and violence, means that the idea becomes taboo, humanity cannot progress the idea, and it gives the idea an authoritarian above what it is reasonably justified in having, over the lives of not just its followers, but those who don’t wish to adhere to its principles. This is dangerous.
Japanese: “Kisama tama.”
The entire jeremiad above is so riddled with fallacies and inaccuracies, one is almost flabbergasted, breathless, and frustrated with such ignorance and false bravado of knowledge. Is this what the English educational system has produced? Surely there are more of higher morals, deepening intellect, and common sense enough to refuse to make even a slight nod or sudden ‘yes’ in mutual agreement to the fecal foundation which uplifts such romantic yet unpragmatic and unrealistic guile of screams of freedom to insult minorities and generalize insults to all of a certain belief system. My only reaction which can be mustered by rationale is what the hell is this gingerbread half ape-half skinhead- complete Zionist grumbling on about!?
Muslims comprise of approximately 5 percent of the population in the UK. What authoritarianism is within their power to yield!? We’re not talking about a massively technologically and generously funded Israel that augments and maintains its apartheid by force and violence. We are conversing on a tiny population of minorities! WTH!? How could they even be remotely construed as authoritative? This is what I speak of when I mention paranoia unsupported by facts – Islamophobia! Has Futile nimrod been watching too many episodes of 24? In addition, the unstated assumption by Futile nimrod is that all religions are critical of non-believers. Or impose or coerce others to live as them. It callously assumes the non-existence of moderate, tolerant, or modern Western followers of that religion (again ignoring completely the distinction between Western and Middle Eastern Muslims as if both are monolithic). I was not aware of any secular government in the West being overthrown by Sharia courts, or any Muslim extremist attacking the West because they want Islam to dominate the West. In every terrorist incident across the West, the attackers screamed Western foreign policy in the Middle East and the Western media continuously retorted its radical Islam. Why? It’s the same propaganda the Slave governments of the American South employed against slave rebellions – ignore the conditions of oppression and blame resistance on radical religion.
Futile, Dawkins, Nick, Bigoticus, and other Islamophobes claim to be vulgar and insulting toward Islam -even to the point of declaring Islam worse than other monotheistic religions- and regurgitating false stereotypes upon all Muslims, in the name of freedom of expression to challenge authority and convention. This is visibly farce, a lie. Why? The most ridiculed and criticized religion post 9-11 attacks is Islam! Count the articles! Research the statistics of discrimination, insulting generalizations, disenfranchisement, and violence against Muslims all across the West. Furthermore, the most authoritative example which exists post 9-11 attacks is not the weakened and puny proportion of Muslims in Western society-subjected and dominated by western secular governments as every Westerner-but the new Terrorism laws enacted to strip the freedoms of every Westerner to thwart the caricature/minstrel/witch radicalized ‘terrorist’. The numbers of terrorists -Al Qaeda and ISIS- number less than the Crip and Blood gang members in the state of California! Where is the real threat!? Which is more authoritative!?
Islamophobes have declared themselves the champions of progressivism by disfiguring the beautiful reputation of progressivism to be a monstrosity devouring minority rights in the name of freedom. God and religious dogma-which all so claim to castigate religion for- has in fact been replaced with the War OF Terrorism. Those governments engaged in the War Of Terrorism are now playing gods (persecuting innocent humans for their thoughts and associations alone). Given the numbers of innocent human lives destroyed by such a god, the actual villains this god despises are benign. Saddam Hussein, Bashar Al Assad, Iran, Morsi, Hamas, Hezbollah, and more never evicted the largest refugee population – Palestinians – from their home. They have not killed as many innocent humans nor invaded as many nations as the gods of the War Of Terrorism. They have not discriminated, disenfranchised, and attacked a whole religion and their followers. Even Laran of the Etruscans was responsible for peace! Where are these modern gods of the West taking us now? Hades?
Come, morphine addicts, come and kill us in our own land. I await you before my patriotic soldiers, feet firmly set, not worried about how many of you there may be. But keep in mind that when this happens the Capitol Building in Washington will shake with the destruction of your greatness, and our blood will redden the white doom of your famous White House, the cavern where you concoct your crimes.
Augusto Cesar Sandino
If the above are deathly loyal to sacrificing their lives to water the tree of liberty, if they are indeed champions of free speech, then truly liberalism and progressivism and freedom has lost all direction, a curse rather than a gift.
All of the prior is tragic, but the largest tragedy remains within me. I have always loved England above my own country. Why? The Magna Carta was a ‘progressive’ stance to coerce tyranny to bow to the rights of the less powerful, demanding an egalitarian disposition not previously enforced. It was a cause for the side of the weaker! Imagine if King John-the more powerful-refuted the demands of noblemen because he proclaimed the right to not be restrained in challenging the ‘authority’ of those aforementioned weaker noblemen. Ridiculous! Nevertheless, I have admiration for the island nation of England. Such australopithecines vagrants as Dawkins, Futile, Nick, are not true Englishmen, I pray (if I may be allowed to do so). Glorious England , the first to eliminate the horrific institution of slavery! Wise England where laws of the US are originated from Common Law and Magna Carta. Freedom’s best benefactor England, where the world’s political exiles flee to live in peace with their freedom of expression! Tolerant and endearing England, where extroverted and annoying yet innocuous fundamentals like Anjem Choudray can voice his support for Al Qaeda whereas in America he would not enjoy such liberty outside prison! Honorable England, where the statue of liberty should be yanked from America’s shores and planted! Where is she?
She is now an Islamophobic England, a god of the War Of terrorism, and no one wants any more of her as she tip toes near the cliff’s edge at her own peril, to meet her great Ape above.
I say to her people, its government, its Queen and King…get off your bums! Stop castigating the weaker Muslim minority and pathetically claiming them as a threat to Western civilization while remaining fearful of insulting the powerful! Stop being the bi##h of America!! Lunge away from that destructive intoxicant of the WOT. Travel to the Middle East and bring all peace and freedom lovers. Commence your bulls-eyes upon the apartheid in Israel – the real monster and terrorist. Tear down those man-made walls. Insult the apartheid advocates! Promote integration, not segregation and xenophobia within your societies and within Israeli society. Indeed, it is tragic to view the evil plague of Israel amplified in the West. It needs to stop! Shall such words from me be heeded, or shall I be viewed as an Armenius who knows your strengths and weaknesses, but have stood on the side of humanity and God.
Futile numb nuts and Dawkins (ABUH) need to understand Progressivism before applying it so cheaply. Its application or doctrine in the Age of Enlightenment entailed the idea of strengthening empirical knowledge to transform society from barbarism to civility, and thus spread across the world from its home base, Europe. This Progressivism sought as an aspiration the improvement of society, a society where the majority does not dismiss the innocuous privileges and rights of the minority, nor unfairly and unequally denigrate or dehumanize that minority at the feeble will to be obnoxious . Progressivism now seeks acculturation with a cultural diffusive process of sharing and trading the best of cultures, not coerced upon a civilization that Europe intends to ‘enlighten’ at the end of a barrel. Enlightenment, progressivism, should never entail satire and insults and ridicule which serve no other purpose but to alienate a minority or foreign culture or religion in which such a constituency may depart the role of adjucators and conduits of cultural diffusion, and instead seek refuge from such obnoxious assimilation in other countries of liberty. That is counter-productive!
Any civilization or empire, the ones that lasted for a significant length such as Cyrus the Great’s, didn’t embark on such insane megalomania. Even Immanuel Kant and Marquis de Condorcet would disapprove of the progressivism Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) practice today and probably query- what is your contributions? Marx would instead focus on finding reasons of socioeconomic derivatives of Islamophobia to blast capitalism’s legitimacy! Robert Ingersol, the great Agnostic in American history challenged the conventions he thought would benefit the weaker disenfranchised and oppressed minorities. He knew how to balance the truth with sympathy in a world of cruelty, lies, and superstition. And can we ask the Futile and Dawkins (ABUH) if they are friends with any Muslim cleric as Ingersol was with the priest Henry-the brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe- whom Ingersol admired and befriended because of the latter’ devoted fight for the rights of slaves? What rights do Futile and Dawkins fight for? The majority’s right to be obnoxious? What about the rights of the weaker minorities in the UK?
The real progressives of today are NOT Dawkins (ABUH) or a pathetic Futile. They are New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg; Loonwatch.com; Congressional Tri-Caucus; Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN); Jon Stewart, Aasif Mandvi and “The Daily Show”; Keith Olbermann and Countdown; Stephen Colbert and “The Colbert Report”; Media Matters for America; Interfaith leaders; and Rachel Maddow and “The Rachel Maddow Show.” The ones fighting the resurgence of xenophobia today.
The openness by which ideas are debated, satirised, and critiqued, is the most important way in which their adherents are taken seriously, become integrated, and viewed equally to all others. This is different entirely to discrimination (demanding deportation of Muslims, or removal of rights that we all enjoy is quite obviously anti-Muslim hate, as is any suggestion that a Muslim shouldn’t be President of the US or Prime Minister of the UK, this is different from satire/criticism of the concept of Islam) If however, their adherents demand a special dispensation and protection from the treatment that all other ideas are open to, or seek to silence through dismissive and damaging rhetoric, then inevitably, they are treated suspiciously.
Farsi: “Goozidam too cheshmet.”
I can concur with open discussion as allowing integration and legitimacy, yet Dawkins and Futile seem to consistently fathom that satire and insults, are sole constructive and productive means to meet the ends of above. There are distinctions of freedom Futile entirely ignore. The normal cognitively functioning human doesn’t now tell a man his sister and mother are cheap whores. The decent Samaritan doesn’t scream fire inside of a theater. The average Joe doesn’t insult God while inside of a church. The cognizant doesn’t tell a black man his people deserved to be slaves because they are inferior. A human doesn’t pour salt into the wounds of a weaker and victimized by targeting what that minority venerates.
Futile Dimwit and Dawkins (ABUH) are only wheeling their obnoxious chariots on the curtails of the rising Western xenophobia (Islamophobia) in consequence to the WOT. They are charlatans. History records the many of them (Peter the Hermits). In times of mass psychosomatic fear – witch hunts- they indulge the rewards that such phenomena’s cheerleaders may reap. Therein is the freedom they so annoyingly coy others into gullibly believing has anything to do with iconoclasm or progressivism they claim. They’re retards! Without the WOT, no one would have known any of them with exception to Ape man Dawkins (ABUH).
Free speech is acceptable but when it threatens the very fabric of society by cowardly victimizing a weaker minority and augmenting the proliferation of violent hate crimes, private and public disenfranchisement of rights, and xenophobia against a minority constituency of a society; it should be classified as nothing other than bigotry. No one has demanded force be used to quell it as Futile has tacitly implied in his words. But his words along with other Islamophobes should be classified for what they are, bigotry and racism. Futile persistently omits in his pleas for free speech, the consequences that arise when free speech is abused. When one dehumanizes a target, and others such as the EDL justify their acts of violence and discrimination according to such speech, that is counter-productive! And it flirts with the line of criminality! One does not have to say explicitly shoot “the Muslim.” One only has to convince others that “the Muslim” intends to kill everyone, and some poor uneducated extremist will end “the Muslim’s” life. That is precisely the rhetoric that creates the Muslim extremists in the West.
Free speech that has as its aim a positive or contributory purpose to its society should be lauded. And sometimes it does entail satire and insults. On the contrary, Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile are not doing this. They are intentionally pulling the Muslim linchpin because there are Western wars in the Middle East, while being imprudent and not seeing how the entire wheel of Western society is falling off. The implicit implication in all of Futile’s and Dawkins’ (ABUH) words are, you are not perfect, only an Atheist is. Thus you deserve to be victimized by the preceding’s indecency and insensitivity. I ask again why have they not challenged the free speech impinged by the War of Terror legislation which ‘is’ authoritative? Why have they not publicly mentioned , challenged, nor blogged anything on the preceding topic!? It’s called hypocrisy.
Today it is becoming harder to speak out, with the inception of the Patriot Act, the president has legislated free speech to be a crime.
I have argued with both miscreants. Their style and other Islamophobes the same. I ask the audience to forgive my theatrics in distilling the preceding. You argue the merits, then they both suddenly become sensitive. After insulting you with ad hominems and generalizations, they emphasize your insults in return, while entirely omitting theirs’. Then they immaturely dismiss your premises because your argument can not possibly be valid, anything but a natural antipathy and hatred of religion is irrational. After all is said and done- like a swarm of bees as in Dawkins’ HoneyGate-several ruder and more ignorant cheerleaders of theirs’ jump in like spineless hyenas, confusing majority opinion as truth. Therefore, it is my estimation that they are hypocrites at best, and more accurately bullies at least.
It is also odd that Futile claims that denying the right of a Muslim to be a president or Prime Minister is construed as anti-Muslim hate. The person he adores, follows, and has defended- Dawkins- has done precisely that with his harsh criticisms of British Muslim Member of Parliament Baroness Sayeeda Warsi and the British Muslim Independent journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, claiming they only have their positions because they are Muslims.
It is absolutely right for all to be free to question and to criticise and ridicule the idea of Islam; as it is right for all to be free to criticise and ridicule every faith and every idea, especially if that idea is authoritarian outside of the private life of the individual believer. This includes criticism and ridicule of Atheism, includes evolution, includes Conservative, includes Liberalism, includes Christianity, includes Mormonism, includes Communism, includes Capitalism. Islam is not, and should not be shut off from that, nor should it in any way, be linked to race from either the far right, or the far left. It is an idea. It deserves to be treated like every other idea. Those who shout “Islamophobia” at any hint of a dislike for Islam, lose all credibility the moment they do not apply the same criteria to the satire and mockery of other ideas, or when they seemingly refuse, or make excuses for people like Mehdi Hasan and his repugnant comments on non-believers.
Vietnamese: “May an long dai cham mui.”
It is indeed an awkward moment to view the above’s momentous repetition of demanding a challenge to authority when the most authoritative force over him and Dawkins (ABUH)-and most of us- is the War OF Terrorism rather than Islam. To question Islam or Christianity or Atheism or secularism (the latter two both brilliantly fail to perform at all), is partly healthy and justified, but shouldn’t and couldn’t it be done with a constructive nature and tact? Shouldn’t or couldn’t it be done with heartfelt and serious discussion rather than postulums of leaping generalizations and attacks against all adherents of a faith? And shouldn’t and couldn’t it be done with less satire and ridicule and insults? And shouldn’t and couldn’t Dawkins (ABUH) and Futile apply equal magnanimity toward their secular governments and their secular government’s foreign policies?
Dawkins stumbles when presented the evidence of Atheist countries inhumane acts.
I find it much more admirable for someone who claims to desire creating a secular society, to work within the confines of a system in which he or she desires to change-with people of faith-rather than dismissing all followers of those faiths as stupid, evil, hypocritical, and worse, solely on the premise that they don’t follow ‘your’ dogma. And therein is where I question the effectiveness, sincerity, and prudence of Dawkins and Futile.
Men will die upon dogma but will not fall victim to a conclusion.
John Henry Newman
I retort to both personally as a Muslim:
When I view the lugubrious displays of mourning for the deaths of Westerners by Islamic extremists plastered all over the media; I feel regretful sadness for the loss of lives. I feel pity on how human life is so utterly cheap to nations’ foreign policies. I feel raging contempt for those who took such lives in vain. Then, the thought of how children in Gaza, Palestine, and all over the Middle East who have been murdered by Israel, Western supported regimes, and Western military instruments of war flashes into my mind. I realize at that conscious moment, none of those many more innocent victims-who have nothing to do with any war or any policy-have a parade, a unity march, or their names in the media. I find solace in the following quote.
“Racism springs from the lie that certain human beings are less than fully human. It’s a self-centered falsehood that corrupts our minds into believing we are right to treat others as we would not want to be treated.” – Alveda King
#Liberty – #Democracy #Republicanism #Secularism cannot be compared to the 3rd world.
Unless genocide be removed from the juxtaposition.
As I have demonstrated with this diatribe aimed directly at Futile, Humanisticus, Nick, and the head ape Dawkins (ABUH) , the preceding are hypocrites. They demand the freedom to malign a minority – Muslims and Islam- in the name of Progressivism wherein the very history of Progressivism and great Progressives of the past preclude such farcical claim. What is their positive contribution? Amongst which oppressed are they aiding with their bigotry? They posit they do such in behest of challenging authority yet are entirely silent in their past blogs and public statements about the largest authoritative presence threatening freedom of speech in their own culture – the WOT legislation such as the NDAA and the UK Terrorist Acts. They are also silent upon Israel!
Let’s not forget the Muslim populations in their nation are such a minute number that authority and British Muslims are entirely diametric entities. They claim to be only expressing their sincere and honest criticism toward Islam and Muslims, despite not having even demonstrated such sincerity by omitting the positive quotes on Islam. They insinuate that their comments are innocuous -only an ac of freedom-wherein they refuse to attach the consequences of such words in the forms of discrimination, disenfranchisement, and hate crimes against minority Muslims. They are totally oblivious to the history of xenophobia and it is a suspicion that it is intentional. And they have a knack of portraying the very qualities that Israel is guilty of upon Islam and Muslims. What else can we expect from living oxymorons – Atheists that support the Jewish State of Israel. Their god is the WOT and Israel. And I am assuming the shape and form of that God, is an ape.
The distinction between those who wield freedom for positive purposes, and those who do so out of nefarious intentions. Benjamin Franklin commented on Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason,
“I have read your manuscript with some attention. By the argument it contains against a particular Providence, though you allow a general Providence, you strike at the foundation of all religion. For without the belief of a Providence that takes cognizance of, guards, and guides, and may favor particular persons, there is no motive to worship a Deity, to fear his displeasure, or to pray for his protection. I will not enter into any discussion of your principles though you seem to desire it. At present I shall only give you my opinion that … the consequence of printing this piece will be a great deal of odium [hate] drawn upon yourself, mischief to you, and no benefit to others. He that spits into the wind, spits in his own face. But were you to succeed, do you imagine any good would be done by it? … Think how great a portion of mankind consists of weak and ignorant men and women and of inexperienced, inconsiderate youth of both sexes who have need of the motives of religion to restrain them from vice, to support their virtue. … I would advise you, therefore, not to attempt unchaining the tiger, but to burn this piece before it is seen by any other person. … If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be if without it? I intend this letter itself as a proof of my friendship.”
I conclude with a passage from the past which described such people today and modified version of Ambrose Bierce’s poem.
Thou shalt no God but the War OF Terrorism adore:
‘Twere too expensive and forbidden to have more.
No dissent nor satire make
For Dawkins and Futile to break.
Take not the War of Terrorism’s name in vain; select
A time when it will have no effect.
Do not give Muslims work at all,
But report when you see the Muslims play paintball.
Honor thy War OF Terrorism. That creates
For oil lower rates.
Donate not, abet not those Muslim charities who kill;
Thou shalt not pay thy Hamas’ bill.
Insult and remove the hijab or burkha of thy neighbor’s wife, unless
Thine own thy neighbor wear a cruficix.
Don’t steal; thou’lt never thus compete
Successfully like Ann Coultier in the Islamophobia business. Take Holy Land funds and War OF Terrorism grants to Cheat.
Bear not false witness— that is low—
But accept thy War OF Terrorism’s entrapment money and immunity to spy, and preemptively testify and so.
Covet thou private citizen’s information naught that the War OF Terrorism hast
By hacking or NSA, or somehow, My Pet Jawa got.
