It has become so predictable that anti-Muslim hate-mongers can literally, take it to the bank.
Place ads against Islam and the prophet Mohammed and outraged Muslims will throw a fit, burn their own buildings thousands of miles away, kill their own people also thousands of miles away all in the name of Islam. In the meantime, the instigators of the insults to the prophet Mohammed, rake in greater donations. All in the name of “Freedom of Speech”.
Such activities only serve the anti-Muslim fear-mongers because it instills the conviction among those non-Muslims who do not know better, that Islam and Muslims are inherently violent and unjust.
When Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten commissioned and published their anti-Islam cartoons of the prophet Mohammed, Muslims rioted in Muslim-majority countries.They destroyed properties belonging to other Muslims and pretty much shut down a number of countries for days. Danes and other Europeans remained unimpressed and life continued in the West as non-Muslims wondered if indeed, Muslims and Islam were as violent as the hate-propagandists portrayed them to be.
Charlie Hebdo ran anti-Muslim cartoons and shortly thereafter, a couple of Muslims killed a dozen people in Paris. Since then Charlie Hebdo has skyrocketed from being a satirical magazine of local note, to one of international recognition. Awards for courage are being lavished on the paper for their efforts to defend “Freedom of Speech”, regardless of the fact that earlier, when a cartoonist published an anti Jewish cartoon in the same paper, he was fired. One member of an organization giving an award for courage to Charlie Hebdo, said the award was not for the fact that Charlie Hebdo was attacked Islam, but for the principle of their action. If this is valid, them Hitler should also be honored, not for the millions of deaths he and the German nation were responsible for, but for the principle of making Germany great again. Would that Principles could so easily be separated from complex matters! These same defenders of principle, fail to note that France is so set against the expression of faith by Muslims (in particular) that people wearing hijab can be fined or imprisoned and recently a Muslim schoolgirl was kicked out of her school because she wore a skirt that was not high enough and thus, was deemed to be practicing Islam in a subversive manner.
A few days ago, the rabidly anti-Muslim blogger Pam Geller, launched a contest in bigotry;the person who would submit the winning cartoon of the prophet Mohammed, would “win” $10,000. Predictably, a couple of Muslims drove by and shot at a security guard, injuring him and then got shot to death, by a cop. All they achieved in their wasted deaths, was an even more firmly imbedded impression among non-Muslims, that Islam and Muslims were indeed mindless, merciless and violent.
How does all this violence come about? Continue reading
Well, this day was not far away when our enemies decide that they should modify “Never Again!” to read, “Maybe just one more time…”, but this time, against Muslims.
Swiss politician Alexander Muller’s Tweet read: “Maybe we need another Kristallnacht… this time for mosques.”
We have had a hysteria-creep that began with associating Muslims with Continue reading
