According to the standard Islamic apologist / Leftist view, western societies are currently going through an unprecedented period of hatred, directed at innocent Muslim citizens resident there. To hear many Leftists speak you would think that America and Europe were poised on the edge of a 1930’s style cesspit of hatred with Muslims as the primary target.
However, when figures for so-called ‘hate crime’ show that Muslims are not even close to the top of the list for hate crimes, then it is quite easy to show that such a statement as the one above and other similar statements made by Leftists are complete and utter bullshit.
The American Federal Bureau of Investigation has published a breakdown of hate crimes in the United States. They show how claims by Islamic pressure groups and Islamic apologists, that Muslims are under extreme hate crime pressure are completely wrong.
To take just one example from the report, the number of Muslims who were targeted for so-called hate crimes was considerably less than those assaults aimed at Jews, Gays, Bisexuals etc. The number of attacks on Muslims was 59% LESS than attacks aimed at American Jews.
It appears that Islamic groups are increasingly claiming that they are victims, when they are evidentally not, because official and recognised victim status would take attention away from what is a very strong religious supremacist current within Islam. Also by shouting ‘victim’ Islamic groups deflect attention away from the horrendous number of attacks worldwide carried out in the name of Islam.
As of today’s date the number of such attacks since September 11th 2001 stands at 20,231 and Islamic terror has clocked up a body count of 209 in the period from January 5th to January 11th 2013 alone. Now that is some body-count for an alleged ‘religion of peace’! No wonder Islamic groups want to hide from view the real Islam, the Islam of multiple dead bodies, oppressed and mutilated women and religious fascism.
This FBI hate crime survey was highlighted by the US National Review magazine who commented on the discrepancy between the Muslim narrative on hate crimes and the reality of the situation.
The National Review said:
“A detailed analysis of FBI statistics covering ten full calendar years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks reveals that, on a per capita basis, American Muslims, contrary to spin, have been subjected to hate crimes less often than other prominent minorities. From 2002 to 2011, Muslims are estimated to have suffered hate crimes at a frequency of 6.0 incidents per 100,000 per year – 10 percent lower than blacks (6.7), 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals (11.5), and 59 percent lower than Jews (14.8). Americans should keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim victimhood. “
A frequency of 6.0 incidents of recorded hatred against Muslims per 100,000 in society is an incredibly low figure. It shows up the lies peddled by the Islamists for what they are. There is no truth in the Islamic assertion that there is a tidal wave of hatred being aimed at America’s Islamic citizens. Frankly, there isn’t and to see anti Muslim incidents occupying such a low position, shows that Muslims have no right in attempting to claim special victimhood status.
Sadly we have created over the last few decades, a society where people feel uncomfortable in challenging the words of those in our society who have been deemed as ‘victims’ or ‘disadvantaged’, and Islam exploits this ‘advantage of victim-hood’ to turn the gaze of Westerners away from the considerable dark side that Islam possesses. This treating Islam as some sort of victim must stop, if Islam is to be effectively challenged, and Islam does need to be challenged and placed in a position where it is no longer a threat to our societies. Such challenges to the Islamic narrative and calling Islamic groups and apologists out on their lies will also in the long run, help Islam itself acknowledge its violent, oppressive and uncivilised aspects, and hopefully start to reform.
Far too often Islamic groups have used ‘islamophobia’ to describe and smear those who object to the state giving special priviledges to Islam, which is an ideology that venerates as its central prophet a violent, thieving, genocidal paedophile. Scratch the surface of Islam and it is quite easy to find, not too far down, the hatred and oppression that Islamic apologists so desperately try to keep from your attention.
Don’t accept Islamic activists telling you that Islam is a victim of hate, when worldwide it is plainly obvious that Islam is a promoter or hate.
Islamic promoters, as well as pretending to be victims, also bend the meanings of words. Taking that which means one thing and making it into something else, such as they have done with the word ‘Islamophobia’. The true meaning of the word ‘Islamophobia’ refers to someone who is frightened of Islam. Being frightened of Islam and seeing it as the obvious threat it is, isn’t a badge of shame, it is the natural feelings of a free person on seeing the effects of Islamic tyranny in both the Islamic and non Islamic worlds.
Islamophobia does not mean what the Islamic apologists say it means, and those of us who look at the Islamic world and feel a sense of ‘Islamo-nausea’ at what we find consider that to be Islamophobic, means that you are justifiably concerned at the sight of an ideology that desires to create a world wide fascistic theocratic dictatorship. Let’s reclaim the word ‘Islamophobic’ as a badge of pride and return it to its true meaning.
To be blunt, there is no effective difference between the ideologies of Stalinist Communism, Hitlerian National Socialism and Islamist/Islamic ways of thinking. All three of these ideologies desire world domination and should be seen as roughly equivilant to each other. They also have gruesomely high body counts. That fact should be a good enough reason to treat Islam and those who promote it with extreme suspicion. Think about what Islam represents and consider whether or not you would treat your local lunatic neo-nazi as a special victim group and you can see the stupidity of treating Islam in such a way.
We must stop giving the promoters of Islamic tyranny ammunition by giving credence to their patently false claims that there are pogroms against Muslims or that Muslims are oppressed in Western democracies. We must learn to see Islamic claims of victim hood as the lies that they truly are.
