TRUE to form, shakedown artists do what they do best – con and deceive, be they radical leftists or Islamists. We all know this is the truth, even if apologists dodge, weave, spin and scream from the rooftops: up is down, black is white and right is wrong. Topsy turvy too.
MOREOVER, while so-called mainstream media lie like drunken sailors, counter- jihadists aren’t even allowed to make genuine mistakes, nor are they given any leeway for the tiniest of misquotes. What gives?
Steve Emerson, a bonafide counterterrorism expert, made a small error when he misidentified Birmingham, England as an Islamic “no go” zone, even though the context of the entire topic was TOTALLY on target. Not only that, while FOX News groveled and apologized for his misquote (a very bad move on their part, but no matter….), the jackals couldn’t help but bare their fangs. Yup, all hell broke loose! What a shock.
ON the other hand, one would think that these same denizens of “truthfulness” – and their jihadi pouncers – never “misspeak.” Oh, give us all a freakin’ break…whom are they kidding? Indeed, do they really believe they can intimidate those who know better into silence and worse? When hell freezes over.
BUT before we delve into specifics, it is imperative to internalize why (and how) Islamic grievance-mongers and their apologists invented – yes, they did – their stealth weapon of choice,“Islamophobia”. They understand full well the Achilles heel of westerners: any hint or perception of prejudice/bias lands one into PC purgatory! The omerta. Clockwork.
Now here’s a point you might deeply consider: The neologism “Islamophobia” did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia. If that name dimly rings a bell, it should: I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s particularly important because it was co-founded by Anwar Ibrahim–the hero of Moderate Islam who is now trotting around the globe comparing his plight to that of Aung San Suu Kyi.
Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. “This loathsome term,” he writes,
is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.
In another article concerning the many moderate Muslims whose voices have been drowned out by Saudi-financed Muslim Brotherhood front groups, Muhammad describes the strategy behind the word’s invention:
In an effort to silence critics of political Islam, advocates needed to come up with terminology that would enable them to portray themselves as victims. Muhammad said he was present when his then-allies, meeting at the offices of the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT) in Northern Virginia years ago, coined the term “Islamophobia.”
Muhammad said the Islamists decided to emulate the homosexual activists who used the term “homophobia” to silence critics. He said the group meeting at IIIT saw “Islamophobia” as a way to “beat up their critics.”
TRAGICALLY, Islamic jihadists know their prey very well, yet, too many westerners hardly have a clue, as to what drives them to rampage and slaughter. Duped.
BACK to Sarsour and her feigned “outrage”, whenever any linkage is made between Islam + Muslims relative to terror. Or, in pure mathematical terms, via the Transitive Law: if A bears some relation to B and B bears the same relation to C, then A bears it to C.
SO, Lindala, is this logical construct too complicated for a woman who wears many Islamic/Arab hats, that is, when the object lesson is truthfulness, instead of disinformation? Inquiring minds want to know!
Here is an example of how Leftists and Islamic supremacists advance the “Islamophobia” myth: as far as they are concerned, Islam and Muslims are entirely guiltless in all respects, and the only reason why anyone is suspicious of them is because of a well-heeled “Islamophobia industry” that works full-time, for unaccountable reasons, “to vilify Islam and Muslims.”
Back in the real world, people are suspicious of Islam and Muslims because of Muslim leaders who say things like “We killed the people of Baga. We indeed killed them, as our Lord instructed us in His Book,” and because of Muslims who attack non-Muslims with hammer and machete after writing, “The wrath of Allah is about to come down upon the kaffir.” Muslims have no need of a wealthy industry devoted (for some reason) to vilifying them when they have Muslims like this chap in Spain who screamed, “Allahu Akbar, all you Christians will die!,” and the ones in Italy who destroyed and urinated on a statue of the Virgin Mary.
Then there are Sarsour’s fellow “Palestinians” who celebrated the stabbing of innocent Israeli civilians with #IAmAKnife hashtag, and the imam in Uganda who beat his 15-year-old daughter to death for converting to Christianity.
And all that is just in the last few days. But as far as Linda Sarsour, who has the ear of New York City’s disastrous Mayor Bill de Blasio, is concerned, there are rich people whose full-time job is to vilify Islam and Muslims, and they’re the problem, not the jihadis. In reality, Muslims like the ones who perpetrated the jihad attacks I’ve listed here are doing a great job of vilifying Islam and Muslims on their own. And what is Sarsour doing to stop the spread of the beliefs and attitudes that led to all this Islamic violence and so very much more? Why, nothing at all.
Sarsour is, of course, a practiced exploiter of the “hate” smear against foes of jihad terror and Islamic supremacism, and has never apologized for using the Islamic honor murder of Shaima Alawadi to spread lies about the prevalence of hate crimes against Muslims in America. She is also rabidly antisemitic (and, of course, a darling of the Leftist media), and has said that “nothing is creepier than Zionism” and has equated it with “racism.” She is, unsurprisingly, a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, and has claimed that the jihad underwear bomber was a CIA agent — part of what she claims is a U.S. war against Islam.
Her inversion of reality here, as ridiculous as it is, is mainstream.
“Linda Sarsour speaks to MEMO about Islamophobia in America,” by Amelia Smith, Middle East Monitor, January 20, 2015:
“It’s a very dangerous industry in this country,” says Sarsour. “This is not just Steven Emerson doing this as a side job, or something he just writes about when he has free time. This is what people like Steve Emerson do every morning from when they wake up to when they go to bed. Their job is to vilify Islam and Muslims.”
AND so on and so forth…..
UNABASHEDLY, as she screams “Islamophobia”, she has no compunction about spreading incitement against Jews and Israel. How dare she!
An Islamist activist honored by the White House last December as a “Champion of Change” called Zionism “racism” this week and said “nothing is creepier” than the belief in a Jewish homeland.
Linda Sarsour also posted two links on her Twitter feed to a rabidly
anti-Israel video by a New York poet that accuses Israel of ethnic
cleansing and mocks interfaith dialogue as selling out.
FOR added vitriol and insult to injury, she includes patriots (and anyone who doesn’t want to submit to the boot of Islam under Shariah Law) as “fair” game. She is proud of her reputation as a rabid Islamic mouthpiece.
IN this regard – while Islamic jihad sweeps across the globe – the last bastion of any semblance of western (media) backbone fell to Islam’s “Islamophobia” sword. Ostensibly, this was due to a teeny tiny mistake re Birmingham, England, but other factors are assuredly at play: FOX NEWS apologizes for its coverage of Islamist terror attacks in Europe!
YET, to complete Obama Inc.’s gang bang, along comes John Kerry (Jan. 23, 2015) on the “Islamophobia” bandwagon; leftist driven, Islamic-inclined, and with an Iranian son-in-law to boot. It just keeps getting worse.
“Countries must devote more resources to fight global extremism, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday, but the battle would falter if it becomes consumed by sectarian division or Islamophobia.”
ALONGSIDE all of her mendacity, Sarsour (and Islam’s apologists) has a golden opportunity to set the Islamic record straight. Basically, she can answer a very unambiguous query: was it okay for bonafide journalists – be they from FOX NEWS or elsewhere, Jews and non-Jews alike – to be refused entrance, as they attempted to cover a large Islamic conference in Garland, Texas, supposedly to “combat Islamophobia?” A “yes or no” will suffice. A or B.
This past weekend in Garland, Texas, Muslim leaders affiliated with a radical, terror-linked group held a “Stand with the Prophet” rally. Their stated purpose? To “combat Islamophobia” and stand up for their “prophet” Muhammad.
Their keynote speaker was a radical imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 world trade center bombing.
Wahhaj once said “It is my duty and our duty as Muslims to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Quran.”
Hundreds of patriots showed up to counter protest the event, holding their own “Free Speech Rally” nearby. Fox News Producer Jesse Watters showed up too, but not just for the free speech rally.
Watters tried to report from inside the Muslim convention, but they wouldn’t allow him in.
“Why can’t the press go in? What’s going on in there?” Watters asked.
“Did you fill out the media form?” a man appearing to be an organizer asked Watters outside the ”Stand With the Prophet” event.
“Yeah, I filled out the media form and I bought tickets too, personally,” the Fox News producer replied. “And now they’re saying I can’t go in.”
“There’s a certain type of media allowed,” the man replied to Watters.
“I thought this was supposed to be open press and I came all the way down here from New York,” Watters countered, but the man just turned and walked away.
SHARIAH V. AMERICA….deadly as that!
