Death by Islamophobia

James Thomson in his “Rule Britannica” poem of the mid-1700s wrote:

Thee haughty tyrants ne’er shall tame:
All their attempts to bend thee down,
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.
Rule, Britannia, rule the waves;
Britons never will be slaves.

And yet, today, the “manly hearts” appear to have simply withered as Great Britain and now most of Europe behave in classic dhimmi fashion, falling prey to the imaginary racism called Islamophobia. In fact, as Salman Rushdie writes in Joseph Anton, “a new word has been created to help the blind remain blind: Islamophobia. To criticize the militant stridency of this religion in its contemporary incarnation [is] to be a bigot.”

After the Iranian Revolution of 1980, the term “Islamophobia” “underwent a mutation that weaponized it.” It continues to be more militant as it has “entered the global lexicon.” Clearly, America and Canada are not immune, either.

Thus, the All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims (APPG) recently released a report titled “Islamophobia Defined: The inquiry into a working definition of Islamophobia.” A few quotations from the lengthy report should highlight the disingenuousness of a document that is essentially recommending a form of blasphemy law.

[W]e drew attention to the fantastic work done by British Muslims over the Christmas period. Muslim-led charities and the huge contribution they make to civil society and social welfare … was the subject[.]

So the first item in the report caters to the uninformed, claiming that Islam is a religion that merely wants to reach out in an expression of genuine ecumenical brotherhood. Are we allowed to ask why so many Muslims, in the name of Islam, murder non-Muslims? Muslim persecution of Christians is at an all-time high.

Next we learn that despite the “palpable concern among British Muslims when it comes to inequality and discrimination,” Great Britain now boasts “the first Muslim Home Secretary and Mayor of London, the first female Muslim minister … in the House of Commons, [and] the first Muslim female in Cabinet and minister at the Despatch box in the upper chamber.”

But let victimization reign as the report continues in a rather deceptive concern for others while hiding the true intent of Islam by asserting that “Islamophobia is rooted in racism and its victims are not just Muslims but also those who are perceived to be Muslims.”

Even Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesperson, has said, “Islam is an ideology.” Being a Muslim means belonging to the religion of Islam. Race does not enter into this ideology at all. But as the Religion of Peace site so aptly explains, “[i]t might seem that casting Islam as a race — or Muslims a race of people — successfully protects the religion.”
