The Lies of Infidelophobia

There is an article being spread far and wide around the internet called “The Lies of Islamophobia” by someone named John Feffer. The article is full of falsehoods, half-truths and misapprehensions, basically accusing the West of bringing on Islamic terrorism (“blowback”) and insinuating that those who are concerned with Koranically induced violence are not only “irrational” (as in “phobia”) but also damaged from childhood. This article consists of anti-West propaganda that has already been refuted in a scholarly manner on countless occasions.

It’s amazing that anyone with an ounce of integrity could possibly defend for one minute a violent, male-dominated cult that is responsible for the brutal murders of some 270 million people worldwide, including some 80 million Indians in their own lands. These slaughtered INDIANS were not WESTERNERS and have nothing whatsoever to do with Christian Crusades. They were murdered so that Muslim conquerors/jihadis could steal their land, women and other booty. These conquests were justified by the Koran, hadiths and Islamic history.

The words and deeds of Islamists themselves over the past 1,400 years immediately expose “The Lies of Islamophiles” such as Feffer and his ilk. And Islamic acts of violence – which are often directed against OTHER MUSLIMS – continue to demonstrate quite abundantly right in front of our eyes what Islam has been about since its inception.

The Lies of Islamophobia

The Muslims were bloodthirsty and treacherous. They conducted a sneak attack against the French army and slaughtered every single soldier, 20,000 in all. More than 1,000 years ago, in the mountain passes of Spain, the Muslim horde cut down the finest soldiers in Charlemagne’s command, including his brave nephew Roland. Then, according to the famous poem that immortalized the tragedy, Charlemagne exacted his revenge by routing the entire Muslim army….

Islamophobia is…an irrational fear of Islam. Yes, certain Muslim fundamentalists have been responsible for terrorist attacks, certain fantasists about a “global caliphate” continue to plot attacks on perceived enemies, and certain groups like Afghanistan’s Taliban and Somalia’s al-Shabaab practice medieval versions of the religion. But Islamophobes confuse these small parts with the whole and then see terrorist jihad under every Islamic pillow. They break out in a sweat at the mere picture of an imam.

Irrational fears are often rooted in our dimly remembered childhoods. Our irrational fear of Islam similarly seems to stem from events that happened in the early days of Christendom. Three myths inherited from the era of the Crusades constitute the core of Islamophobia today: Muslims are inherently violent, Muslims want to take over the world, and Muslims can’t be trusted.

The myth of Islam as a “religion of the sword” was a staple of Crusader literature and art. In fact, the atrocities committed by Muslim leaders and armies — and there were some — rarely rivaled the slaughters of the Crusaders, who retook Jerusalem in 1099 in a veritable bloodbath. “The heaps of the dead presented an immediate problem for the conquerors,” writes Christopher Tyerman in God’s War. “Many of the surviving Muslim population were forced to clear the streets and carry the bodies outside the walls to be burnt in great pyres, whereat they themselves were massacred.” Jerusalem’s Jews suffered a similar fate when the Crusaders burned many of them alive in their main synagogue. Four hundred years earlier, by contrast, Caliph ‘Umar put no one to the sword when he took over Jerusalem, signing a pact with the Christian patriarch Sophronius that pledged “no compulsion in religion.”

This myth of the inherently violent Muslim endures. Islam “teaches violence,” televangelist Pat Robertson proclaimed in 2005. “The Koran teaches violence and most Muslims, including so-called moderate Muslims, openly believe in violence,” was the way Major General Jerry Curry (U.S. Army, ret.), who served in the Carter, Reagan, and Bush Sr. administrations, put it…

  1. The article by John Feffer titled, [i]The Lies of Islamophobia The three unfinished wars of the West against the rest[/i] is easily debunked with one simple factoid from this blog above:
    [quote][b]”It’s amazing that anyone with an ounce of integrity could possibly defend for one minute a violent, male-dominated cult that is responsible for the brutal murders of some 270 million people worldwide, including some 80 million Indians in their own lands. These INDIANS were not WESTERNERS and have nothing whatsoever to do with Christian Crusades.”[/b][/quote]
    One person had this to say in response to John Feffer’s article:

    “Realize that the real problem is Infidelophobia. There are currently over 16,000 reasons why Americans cannot trust the Islamic ideology – over 16,000 terrorist attacks worldwide (just since 9-11) and at least 68 attempts right here in the US. Remember the Fort Hood shooter, the Detroit Xmas bomber, Time Sq. bomber and now the UPS package bomber just to name a recent few?

    And if that is not enough, there are an endless stream of comments by muslims themselves:

    I think the time has come for people to actually listen to what muslims and ex-muslims have been saying themselves in their own words.

    Ex-Muslim websites

    faithfreedom.org ([url]http://www.faithfreedom.org[/url])

    reformislam.org ([url]http://www.reformislam.org[/url])

    “Faith Freedom International is a grassroots movement of ex-Muslims. Its goals are to (a) unmask Islam and show that it is an imperialistic ideology akin to Nazism but disguised as religion and (b) to help Muslims leave it, end this culture of hate caused by their “us” vs. “them” ethos and embrace the human race in amity. Islam, the most insidious doctrine of hate. Islam can’t be reformed. Islam is rigid but brittle, that is why Muslims do not tolerate criticism of it. All we (X–Muslims) have to do is tell the truth. It’s that simple. The truth about Islam is out. It’s all here in this site. With truth, the decent Muslims will leave Islam.”

  2. THE SAME THING
    The Koran and the Bible are bloody books. Muslims and Christians are imperialist and murderers. West created Israel state . That was the beginning of the conflict. We have now Muslim and Jews extremists in the international scene, killing at each other (even the sponsors). What did George Bush write recently? ¿Did he say that torture is good?

  3. Great stuff, Austin. Not totally on topic here but I wanted to get it out there because I’m tired of hearing this same stupid old crap…

    Muslims have no right at all to keep whining about the Crusades the way they do. First off, that stuff ended 700 years ago. All parties are way dead. No living westerner did it & it didn’t happen to them.

    But more importantly, Islam was spread outside of Arabia by a bloody, violent military kill-or-convert Muslim rampage over 1,300 years ago. It’s the very height of hypocrisy for muslims who can’t bring themselves to criticize their own faith’s homicidal invasion of lands from India to Europe to still be whining about the Crusades like it happened last year.

    A bit off topic, but I wanted to get it out & would like to see them getting called on that more.

  4. Very impressive
    Thank you for such a comprehensive expose’ on the threat of Islam.
    I will keep re-posting and sharing in the hopes that more people understand our world wide threat which is quite simply one religion called Islam.

  5. Sorry, but I know all these arguments very well – typical Muslim apologetics ([url]http://sheikyermami.com/2009/06/16/how-to-debate-a-muslim/[/url]), which represent ad hom personal attacks, not facts.

    I have lived in foreign countries, and I have known Muslim people – your ad hom apologist tactic is simply false. I also know many EX-Muslim people who have lived in Muslim countries. In fact, I draw much of my information from them, as well as Muslim texts such as the Koran and Hadiths ([url]http://truthbeknown.com/islamquotes.htm[/url]). I am quite likely [i]far [/i]less ignorant of Islam than you are; in fact, your remarks indicate you do not know the ideology well at all, in that you are simply relying on the behavior of its victims.

    Your polyanna perception is unfortunately not reality, and there are more than enough reasons to object to the ideology of Islam [i]in toto[/i]. Indeed, I find it disgusting that someone could live in Saudi Arabia and actually justify the ideology that has turned that place into a hellhole of human-rights abuses. Has your desperate desire to be multicultural caused you to become blind to the oppression of Wahhabism, as it is practiced by over 20 million people there?

    Apparently, the fact that some 270 million people – including 80 million Indians – have been hideously murdered in the name of Islam, Allah, Mohammed and the Koran doesn’t bother you at all. Justifying such a heinous legacy frankly turns one into a reprobate ([url]http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/reprobate?&qsrc=[/url]). And why do you hate Indians? You don’t even care what this Arab slave-cult ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zM_MzkLKPY[/url]) has done to them at all – you are too busy justifying its horrors by pretending they don’t exist.

    If you would like to learn more about the [i]ideology [/i]of Islam – which is exactly what I am talking about here – you may wish to read these sites:

    The faster everyone wakes up to the oppression of Islam, the better. I am no more interested in reading false justifications of Islam than I am of Nazism, so please don’t waste my time. Thank you.

    1. Acharya is absolutely correct. Ironically, the west (especially the US) is “allied” with brutal, barbaric, medieval islamic regimes like Saudi Arabia, gulf states like Oman, Muscat, Qatar, Emirates. These primitive islamic states in the 21st century still practice slavery, polygamy, brutal intolerance and most of the sheikhs have harems with many courtesans comprising mostly of western and Asian women. Saudi Arabia , the birthplace of islam is the most barbaric of them all. King Abdullah has multiple wives, black and asian slaves and a large harem with mostly western and asian women. It is disgusting to the see the west allied with this cretin!!

  6. I am an American who grew up in the Middle East, specifically, Saudi Arabia. From my personal experience, the Islam that you are talking about is contained to few compared to the number that are peaceful. There are fundamentalists in every religion, and every religious text contains passages that express hostile feelings of “smiting” those who do not believe in that particular religion. As long as there is ANY religion, there will be wars about which is “correct”. Your blogging about it in such a negative way adds fuel to the fire because people want to defend their religion, not to mention it shows just how ignorant you are. Why don’t you go over to the Middle East and experience it yourself.

  7. I completely agree with Acharya S, it is really disgusting to see someone could defend country like Saudi Arabia with its shariah regime. I guess, these people are blinded by the money from those Saudis so that they fail to see how the Saudis are treating other people, including their own muslim fellows.

    I have lived in Saudi Arabia, and I know what they have done to other people. And it is not just Saudi Arabia, any sharia government basically does the same. So it is not the Saudi, but it is Islam who is the cause. And I have learnt Islam well enough to silent any muslim who says otherwise.

    I suggest, learn Islam from its source, Quran, hadiths and tafsir, not from the lies spread by the Islam apologies.

  8. Slavery is a natural by-product of Islam

    Islam is a program of slavery. Qur’an couldn’t be more clear. Islam I think is a program for men who question their ‘religiosity’. It’s a program in which the men take on outward extreme masculine and religious appearances, in a quest to ‘cure’ themselves of their own disbelief. They persecute the people who they are most afraid of, the ones who are like their secret closet selves. We learned this about homophobia. yes, I too have read Qur’an, and the ‘laws’ regarding taking slaves, killing husbands in front of their wives and hauling off the women to sex slavery, the ‘laws’ about marriage and children and people who aren’t Arabic…it’s truly amazing that there is any Western support for this at all. Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, and I don’t need to tell you where most of the human trafficking is taking place. Islam breaks all Ten of the Commandments, deliberately, and then calls itself a religion which respects Moses, commands that breaking the Commandments is ‘obligatory’, slavery a ‘natural by-product of jihad’ which is of course also ‘obligatory’, what a mess…the comments about ‘you’ll find that stuff in any religion’ is just not true. People who can’t tell the difference between, say, the Gospel and Qur’an probably just aren’t religious people, they don’t get it, they don’t want to.
