Islamophobia Is Boris Johnson’s Problem Now

Islamophobia has been mainstreamed in a way never seen before in modern Britain. And it could get worse. (foreignpolicy.com)

“No one thought that such a massacre could take place in tolerant New Zealand, but it did. In the U.K., the security services have already warned the public that the far-right has attempted to carry out its own massacres, going so far as stockpiling equipment to bomb a mosque.”

A third of terrorist plots in the U.K. since March 2017 have come from the far-right, and far-right extremists are arguably more energized by anti-Muslim bigotry than anything else. Before Britain has its own Christchurch massacre, Johnson is going to have to do much more.”

Corbyn faced legitimate accusations about failures to address anti-Semitism properly and effectively. Johnson has the same responsibility for Islamophobia – but far less attention has been given in our national conversation. It’s dangerous to keep that as the norm.

Considering that reported hate crimes against Jews in England and Wales doubled in 2018 to 2019 as compared to the previous year (1,326 compared to 672), anti-Semitism is plainly an issue that needs to be addressed by the Labour Party and U.K. society as a whole.

In the same period from 2018-2019 almost 3 times as many hate crimes (3,530) were committed against Muslims, accounting for almost half of all hate crimes against religious groups in the U.K.—yet attention to that issue has been paltry in comparison to anti-Semitism claims.

And when it comes to anti-Muslim sentiment, it isn’t just that there is a problem with Islamophobia among Tories. After all, the current prime minister once wrote that “Islamophobia—fear of Islam—seems a natural reaction” and insisted that “Islam is the problem.”

More recently, a number of Conservative Party officials have been suspended over Islamophobia, but the Tories seem unwilling to sufficiently address Islamophobia within the party. And It isn’t just in the Conservative Party: it’s much more widespread throughout British society.

In-person hate crimes against Muslims from 2016 to 2017 increased by 30%; in 2018, “Punish a Muslim Day” letters were sent to Muslims; mosques have been attacked, including when a van plowed into a group of pedestrians who had been worshipping at a London mosque in 2017.

Indeed, the problem of Islamophobia is more dire today than after the 9/11 attacks or the 2005 London train and bus bombings. Shortly before the Dec. 12 election, an ICM poll surveyed voters about their attitudes toward Muslims. The numbers are shocking.

When it came to Conservative voters, 37% admitted to viewing Muslims in a negative light, 55 % said that there should be a reduction in the number of Muslims entering Britain, and a staggering 62 % said they agreed with the statement that Islam threatens the British way of life.

Numerous complaints about Tory officials and activists’ behavior and rhetoric toward Muslims have been lodged. In 2018, no less than a former chairperson of the Conservative Party, Sayeeda Warsi, declared that the Tories had to form an inquiry into Islamophobia.

When it comes to British voters more generally, the poll reported that 26 % view Muslims in a negative light, 41 % said that there should be a reduction in the number of Muslims entering Britain, and 45 % agreed with the statement that Islam threatens the British way of life.

I have researched extremist Islamists for much of my career. I’ve received threats from extremist Islamists many times for my work—sometimes for arguing that these extremists pose a threat to the U.K. or that they are a menace to Muslim communities worldwide.

But it isn’t extremist Islamists whom the poll asked about. It asked about Muslims in general & Islam as a religion. When almost half of voters according to the ICM view Islam—not extremists, not radicals, but just Muslims—as a threat, Britain has a grave problem to reckon with.

The increasing prevalence of Islamophobia is the result of 3 factors. The first is the statements from political figures who engage in Islamophobia. The second factor is the existence of a well-documented network. The third factor is the mainstreaming of hateful views.

As the researcher Tom Kibasi pointed out last month: “It is hard to avoid the conclusion that many in the British media dismiss Islamophobia because they believe Islamophobes have a point.” Too few have been willing to confront this issue. On the contrary.

Underestimating this kind of threat to the social cohesion of our societies is not an option we should countenance. That kind of attitude led to the widespread notion Jews in Europe posed a threat in the early 1900s and a systematic scapegoating of them that led to the Holocaust.

That lack of seriousness brought about the demonization of Bosniaks in the 1990s, which led to the genocide of Bosnian Muslims. And the toleration of that sentiment two decades ago paved the way for a disgraceful gesture to be made last week by the Nobel Committee.

The Nobel Prize is meant to signify recognition of the greatness of its recipient. But on Dec. 10, the Austrian author Peter Handke was given that prize—the same Handke who denied the Bosnian genocide. He was granted the Nobel Prize with a handshake from the Swedish king.

Peter Handke and the power of denial

What is behind the decision to award a genocide denier a Nobel Prize?

by Emir Suljagic

10 Dec 2019

https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/peter-handke-power-denial-191209094413616.html

Handke, in other words, was not an aberration in the 1990s; he was one of many others in the political mainstream with an identical agenda.

Handke’s genocide denial is the logical political extension of the ignorance and the indifference of the rationalisations by UN and Dutch officials I witnessed in 1995.

Denial is part and parcel of the process that sets the context for genocide in the first place.

No, the outside world did not just stand by during the Bosnian genocide. It actively rationalised and negated our experience, and what is more, it continues to do so.

 

Die Stunde der falschen Empfindung

Die Stunde der falschen Empfindung – wie der Dichter Peter Handke in die Falle der grossserbischen Ideologie tappte und keinen Ausweg mehr fand

Andreas Breitenstein 06.12.2019

Man kommt nicht umhin, es als Skandal zu empfinden, wie sehr sich Peter Handke in seiner grossserbischen ideologischen Verblendung mit seinen abwegigen Sichtweisen an den Schwächsten des Krieges vergangen hat.

(One cannot avoid feeling that it is a scandal how much Peter Handke has done wrong ( misbehaved ), in his great-Serbian ideological blindness, with his devious views against the weakest of the war.)

Islam tillåter naturligtvis INTE pedofili

Islam tillåter naturligtvis INTE pedofili, inte heller sex utanför äktenskap och inte sex med samma kön.

0.1 Detta må kännas ’konstigt’ för det (post-)moderna människan, men bara för att många i ett samhälle accepterar vissa sociala fenomen, betyder inte att de blir sanna eller leder till allsidig framgång. Men sanningen finns, båda den relativa sanningen och den absoluta, det kan man gilla eller inte.

0.2 Människorna har fått gudomlig vägledning genom tiderna (Profeterna: Adam…Moses, Jesus, Muhammad – frid vare med dem alla), och det är få människor som godtar vägledningen. Den är till för att skjila mellan rätt och fel, förnuftet räcker inte långt – våra begär, vår kärlek till oss själva (egotism) fördunklar våra hjärtan.

0.3 Individualismen suggererar att vi vet bättre än alla andra och leder oss att förkasta mänsklighetens tidslösa andliga arv.

0.4 Men Allah (Gud) har förvisso nedsänt en klar vägledning för alla människor och alla tider – de som inte följer denna vägledning får skylla sig själva.

Ang. Ayeshas ålder: 

1.0 Även om Profet Muhammad (Allahs frid och välsignelser vare med honom) gifte sig med en 6 – 9åring flicka betyder det inte att vi ska göra det idag, därför att:

1.1 Muslimer som alla andra ska respektera landets lagar, landet i vilket de lever, så länge dem inte hindras i sin gudsdyrkan.

1.2 Islam har oföränderliga fundament (t ex tidebön, allmosan) och även sådana regler som anpassas efter tiden, kulturen och geografin. Ett exempel: Jämnför moskéer i Asien, Arabien, Afrika eller Europa: arkitekturen anpassas.

1.3 I den förmoderna tiden (dvs före den franska revolutionen 1789) gifte man bort flickorna när de fick sin mens. De blev då alltså unga kvinnor. Idag gifter sig många kvinnornär de är 35 – 45 år, andra tider, andra liv.

Exempel: 

Sveriges första kvinnliga drottning var drottning Margareta Valdemarsdotter (1353-1412) som förlovades med Håkan Magnusson vid 5 års ålder och gifte sig med honom när hon var 10 år. Och prinsessan Ingeborg var 10 då hon gifte sig med den danska barnkungen Erik Menved 1296. osv ( https://motargument.se/2018/12/09/myt-var-muhammed-pedofil/ ) 

2.0 Pedofilianklagelserna

2.1 Pedofilianklagelserna mot vår Profet Muhammad (Allahs frid och välsignelser vare med honom) började först rund 1900. Varför inte alla århundraden tidigare, när man från Väst ändå kritiserasde vår älskade Profet? Tänk efter!

3.0 Laglydlighet

3.1 Det ska nämnas angående respekt för landets lagar, så gäller det svenskar som invandrare, oavsett hur länge de har varit här. Äckligheter, förtal, korruption och kriminalitet ska straffas – redan i detta liv! (The New Crime-Terror Nexus)

4.0 Slutsats

4.1 Somliga bland våra medborgare tror sig kunna hitta en utväg ur sina bekymmer och sin oro här i livet med att skylla alla sina/ samhällets problem på invandrarna/ muslimer. Men så enkelt är det inte, det är tom orättvist och helt fel. Många tyskar på 1930talet kände likadan – det leder ingenstans. Men all politik ska vara blott ett medel för att stärka det allmänna bästa! Hjälp till!

4.2 Islamhatet kommer splittra samhället än mer, det utnyttjas av de arroganta och giriga makterna för att (så småningom) slå ned på andra grupper och samhällsklasser. Nyliberalism är högerpolitikernas flagga. Men det här är bara början, fascister av olika brun-kulörer vädrar morgonluft.

Men medan Muslimerna är skyddad av sin tro och sin Herre (Gud), kommer de som brinner i sin hat få fler problem, inte minst den Dagen som Räkningen görs (Domedagen), som nalkas, oavsett om man troende eller vantrogen!

4.3 Alla i samhället ( t ex Sverige) har ett samhällsansvar, att söka efter lösningar utan att se ned på / hata sin nästa, istället att samtala med och hjälpa varann. När har du senast haft ett djupare samtal med en Muslim?

4.4 Det är på tiden att sopa framför den egen dörren: hur kan du förbättra din omgivning idag? Hur kan du värna för det allmänna bästa? Tänk efter! Tänk positivt!

The Glorious Qur’an

The Qur’an is not like any other book.
Context is essential, but not easily at hand.
Arabic, grammer, and logic are needed.

No other knowledge can be matched with the Qur’an.
The Qur’an is a book of light and divine guidance. 

It is a sacred book of inner meaning and outer form.
The Qur’an is a sealed book with 7 levels of understanding,
inaccessible to those who disbelieve in God and the Last Day.

The Qur’an is a revelation from God (may His Majesty be exalted!)
directed to all mankind of all ages and places.

The Qur’an confirms and updates the earlier revelations,
validating the plurality of prophets under the One God.

Example of Israel’s Propaganda & Diversion Operations (HASBARA)

Israel’s Online Shadow Operations, by Alison Weir

Numerous well funded, organized projects by and for Israel work to flood social media with pro-Israel propaganda, while blocking facts Israel dislikes. The projects utilize Israeli soldiers, students, American teens and others, and range from infiltrating Wikipedia to influencing YouTube. Some operate out of Jewish Community Centers in the U.S.

”Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and others are private companies. In the end, they have the power to censor information, and they periodically do so. For a few days, we felt acutely what that was like. If Facebook had joined the ban, as has happened with others, we would have been even more cut off from what is essentially today’s “public square.”

The Internet and social media give us far more access to information and tools for communication and activism than ever before, but they, too, can be controlled—and they are.

It is up to us, as always, to overcome.” LINK

The arrogant occupier speaking:

flood-the-Internet-with-pro-Israel-propaganda698.jpg

There is no such thing or organ as ’the Jewish brain’, only the brain that has been washed with the paranoic fear of a new Holocaust on the Jews looming from everywhere.
It is tragically a mind which has diverted from the original teachings of Judaism. Now we have Holocaustism, Zionism and chicken soupism.

No thought of what the Occupier Entity of Israel does to the original* inhabitants of the area: Palestine.
*original: meaning if 2000+ years do count.
