Since 1948, almost 10 million Muslims have died at the hands of fellow Muslims

Jihad Watch 25 August 2011

Where is the outrage over that? Double standards abound. As the Israeli envoy Dan Gillerman said in 2008: "When Christians kill Muslims, it's the Crusades. When Jews kill Muslims it's murder, and when Muslims kill Muslims, it's like talking about the weather. Nobody really cares about it."

And as the late Samuel P. Huntington observed: "Wherever one looks along the perimeter of Islam, Muslims have problems living peaceably with their neighbors. The question naturally rises as to whether this pattern of the late 20th century conflict between Muslim and non-Muslim groups is equally true of relations between groups from other civilizations. In fact, it is not. Muslims make up 1/5 of the world's population but in the 1990s they have been far more involved in intergroup violence than the people of any other civilization....Islam's borders are bloody, and so are its innards."

What is Islamophobia?

Gates of Vienna 25 August 2011

As I have mentioned previously, one of major goals of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is to stop "Islamophobia”, which is its preferred term for the criticism of or opposition to Islam by non-Muslims.

The word "Islamophobia” is of relatively recent coinage. I never encountered it until after 9-11, and it was subjected to widespread ridicule, at least among non-Muslims and non-leftists, when it first became widely known. However, after the OIC and the UN harped on it for a few years, and the progressive media solemnly repeated the Muslim party line, "Islamophobia” gained general currency as a serious, scholarly word for a dangerous mental deficiency that needed to be eradicated in the West.

 

Video: Shopping With Radical Islam: In East London

Right Side News  25 August 2011

It’s not always easy to distinguish between radical Muslims and what the media love to call ‘moderates’. But perhaps that’s not the best way to tackle radical Islam. In fact, dividing the Muslim population into two different types of people is dangerous; not only because it encourages prejudice against the whole of the Muslim community, but because it takes the focus off the one thing that makes radical Muslims radicals: their views.
