How Muslims are perceived in 21st Century(Muslims are fast becoming 21st Century Jews..)

How Muslims are perceived in 21st Century

Abid Ullah Jan

Exactly four years ago, I came to the conclusion that Muslims are fast becoming 21st Century Jews. The initial thoughts were published in an article on January 7, 2004. The argument was backed up by an attempt to monitor the status of Muslims and attacks on Islam as a religion from around the world. It has been observed that the perception of Muslims as terrorist and extremists kept consolidating with the passage of time.
In 2006, the theme was expanded and turned it into a chapter in After Fascism. Two words are enough to sum up my feelings after closely monitoring the theme for four years: hopeless and dejected. And this is so because 21st Century Muslims are now being treated worse than Jews under the Nazi rule in the 20th century.
Some might call this conclusion an exaggeration. In fact, such thinking itself is naivety and one of the root causes of the unfolding tragedy before our eyes. The main reason for our taking 21st Century fascism for granted is the misperception about Muslims. The actions and inactions of Muslims themselves have further led to the globalization of hatred against them, development of an anti-Islam mindset, racism and above all an international holocaust that was mostly local in the early 20th century Germany. The world is silently witnessing a replay of the Nazi crimes on a global scale, occurring during a relatively larger time frame under “legal” justifications and professional cover-ups.

The result is that nearly 6-8 million Muslims have been butchered in the decades since the Jewish holocaust - The frequency of genocides has increased over the last two decades - but there is not even a whimper, let alone a standing-up to the modern day fascism and erecting of Muslim holocaust memorials or establishing of museums. May be these are actions that come with realization of guilt after the fact. On the other hand, in the case of Muslims, they are still passing through the age of holocaust. The misperceptions about Muslims are getting even stronger by the day and more and more people are crossing the line into accepting Muslim concentration camps and other inhuman treatments. And Muslim are, by and large, either silent by choice out of fear or by design and ignorance.
Racial profiling at airports and immigration processes; the blasphemous cartoons of their prophet; the U.S. forces flushing the Qur’an down in toilets, blowing up mosques in false flag operations and showering civilians with White Phosphorus; the labelling of Muslims as Islamists and promotion of heretics such as Manji and Rushdie as “moderate” Muslims, these are all manifestations of how Muslims are viewed in the 21st century.
Muslims have to go through the physical and intellectual horrors to learn civility and become normal, civilized human beings. The first step in this civilizing mission to prove to non-Muslims that Muslims are not equal human beings. They are barbarians and evil. We are just entering into the mainstreaming phase of this kind of fascism in which the New York Times joins the ranks of rabid Islamophobes in saying: “The cartoons are just an isolated incident.” The rest of the analysts are presenting protests in the Muslim world as some kind of grand conspiracy to conquer the West. They are challenging the rationale behind the protests with the argument that why don’t Muslim protest when people are beheaded in Iraq. These Islamophobes ignore that Muslims did not protest and their governments did not lodge complaints even when it was absolutely confirmed that Iraq was occupied through lies and deceit. They are still not saying a word, even if Western analysts are pointing out that 608 million Muslims have been murdered since 1991.
Muslims didn’t protest when Fallujah was raised to the ground and thousands of innocent civilians were butchered. Muslims did not protest when they come to know that Iraqis were treated in the most inhuman and barbaric way possible. In this mayhem, beheadings and bombings become part of the genocidal actions and reactions for which the primary responsibility rests on the shoulders of the United States.
The rising chorus of Islamophobes openly calling Muslims to leave the Western countries is another way to see how Muslims are perceived and a sign of the problem ahead. If we look at the list of requirements which Muslims – the sub-humans - have to fulfill before they are considered worth living among “normal human beings,” one may find out that it is an open challenge to them to leave your religion and associated beliefs or get ready for total isolation. In Germany, the state of Baden-Wurttemberg has added its own list of guidelines for use by officials when interviewing Muslims seeking German citizenship. All applicants face the usual tests of language proficiency, general knowledge and their ability to fend for themselves and their families. They also must accept the democratic principles laid out in Germany’s constitution. But Muslims face up to an additional 30 questions probing their religious beliefs, as well as their views on such topics as Western values, women’s clothing, homosexuality, wife-beating and polygamy.
Among other things, Muslims could be asked whether they accept criticism of their religion, how they feel about the terrorist attacks of 9/11, what their attitudes are toward Jews and whether they would allow their daughters to participate in school activities. The state’s Interior Minister says the test is designed to weed out unsuitable applicants or to be used as a basis for later deportation of those found to have lied.[3]

This type of screening based on individual beliefs and values, rather than actions, is the a fast forward towards 21st century fascism, which will clearly lead to the coming exodus, the end of nation states and Muslim holocaust in the near future. Interestingly, the mainstream media, religious institutions, [4] academia, and political and military leaders are all part of this 21st century Nazi campaign against Muslims which didn’t come about in the last few years. It is the product of systematic and organised work at least since the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan and the fall of the former Soviet Union. Unbeknownst to the Islamophobes they are not pushing only Muslims towards total isolation and destruction, they are undermining their own societies as well. They are turning their own people and valuable resources into cannon fodder as well. In sum, they are pushing the humanity towards the ultimate tragedy.
In this unfolding tragedy, the most important point to note is how the Muslim Holocaust has been ignored not only by the so-called mainstream Media which is only to be expected but also by the ‘Alternative Media’.
This suggests that when it comes to the denial of Muslim holocaust, even the ‘Alternative Media’ has become so hypnotized by the lies of the “mainstream media” that its mindset is governed by the parameters set by the “mainstream media” and thus it cannot handle another reality outside that mindset. This is exactly what Cognitive Dissonance is about and what even the ‘Alternative Media’ is suffering from. Of course, the ‘Alternative Media’ is unaware of this and it’s up to those of us who are aware to shake them back into awareness.

Which is it?

How many Muslims have been killed by other Muslims vs. how many were killed by nonMuslims?

Coincidentally , just got this email from a lib Canadian buddy living in Japan . I’d sent him a link to this video :

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=t00PAko1KBU

” I wonder if/how much Dave Davies was involved in this, and what he has
to say about it...see some time if you can find some of the pre-war
Nazi propaganda against the Jews, plug in ‘Muslim’ where it says
‘Jews’, and compare it to this stuff...also try the ‘flip test’ on
Iraq and Afghanistan: how you’d feel if you were young and stupid and
every day there were reports on TV of another 50 or so Christians being
killed in, say, Greece or Italy by an international invasion force put
together by Muslim nations.

I had a good laugh at the ‘King Arthur’ picture...the real King Arthur
probably looked, and smelled, like the homeless do now, with somewhat
less of an overall quality of life. And presenting Oliver Cromwell as a
man of freedom...these people need to read a lot more. “

This is the kind of reply I expected from him ...

Muslims are the 21st Century’s NAZIS! They are the Evil Ones, not the innocent victims. Any hatred of Muslims has been well earned!

Oh, poor poor muslims. We don’t sit on our hands and just let you go murdering as you feel the desire. You’re so oppressed.

We’re so mean to the poor muslims. Just because they cut off folks heads and post the vids on youtube, doesn’t mean they’re bad. We call them names, just because they are violent, brutish, brutal, inbred, degenerate, disgusting, parasitic, monstrous, vile, inhuman, throwbacks to an era when cooking on animal poop was considered high tech.

We make fun of them, just because their culture is totally bankrupt, devoid of benefit, acceptable only to the bestial and depraved.

It’s not their fault.

Sad little victims.

Horse manure. There is a rising perception that Muslims are terrorists because they ARE terrorists. And most of the Muslim deaths involved Muslims killing Muslims or other people trying to defend themselves against Muslim attacks.

Well, duh. What other racial or religious group preaches the destruction of the "infidel" and blows up innocent civilians? The more we see of terrorism and extremism, the more we "consolidate" this opinion.

Well that's a start that they acknowledge there WAS a holocaust. Usually Muslims and leftists claim that was a Jewish "conspiracy".

You don’t think the proper answers will be quickly discovered and distributed?

Meaninglessness heaped upon duh level stupidity. There’s no way to cull the evil from the muslim masses, other than to cull the muslim completely.

All cultures and societies produce their bad apples. The muslim culture and society serves, primarily, as an incubator of apple rot.

Probably do not good to point out that probably 50 or so Christians are being killed each day in Muslim states. Consequently a place like Iraq which has had a Christian population since the time of the Apostles and a Jewish population since the Exile is now being emptied of both by fanatical Muslims. Like most Arabs he really can’t tell the difference between words and reality. Arabs are such liars that I swear that Bill Clinton must be half-Arab.

Excellent point often left untouched/unreported.

They also generally fail to discuss how many millions of Christians and non-muslims have been butchered and murdered by muslims since the jewish holocaust.

Kind of like black on black crime (92% of blacks who are murdered in USA, are murdered by another black).

Funny, I don't ever recall hearing how Jewish terrorists hijacked 4 Lufthansa Focke-Wulff Kondors and crashed three of them into the Reichsbank and the Wehrmacht Headquarters on the Wilhelmstrasse. I further don't ever recall that heroic German passengers fought back and brought down one of the planes in rural Bavaria before it could hit its inteded target the Reichskanzlerei.

So where does this imbecile get his premise from?

Most of the Muslims who have been killed have been killed by other Muslims. Muslims have steadily increased their intolerance of other religions ever since they have had oil wealth. The persecution of those of other religions by Muslims has been worse in the time frame of which this author speaks than it was for hundreds of years before.

Muslims are the new Jews, eh? Literate, entrepreneurial, intellectual, valuing education? I'm not seeing it myself.

Racial profiling at airports and immigration processes;

Yeah, why would that be. Can't think of a reason...

the blasphemous cartoons of their prophet;

Welcome to freedom of expression. It's not just you who's expected to tolerate expressions you don't like. Ever heard of "Piss Christ?" Let's see, did anyone die over that one? Or even get injured? Gosh, no. What's the difference there?

the U.S. forces flushing the Qur’an down in toilets,

Are you citing the debunked Newsweek story? Myths don't count.

blowing up mosques in false flag operations

Huh? Got a citation for this one, dude?

and showering civilians with White Phosphorus;

I remember something about this. Wasn't it another myth?

the labelling of Muslims as Islamists

No, the labeling of Islamists as Islamists

and promotion of heretics such as Manji and Rushdie as “moderate” Muslims,

Hadn't heard that one.

these are all manifestations of how Muslims are viewed in the 21st century.

Suggestion: stop your co-religionists from blowing people up, demonstrating with "Behead those who insult Islam" signs, going nuts over a few cartoons, lashing women who were raped, having religious policeman, wrapping women in bags, etc. The reputation of Islam will improve.
