Islamophilia Has Become the New Anti-Semitism
The Canada Free Press ^ | 10/4/2010 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 10/04/2010 9:17:04 AM PDT by Olympiad Fisherman

On a late summer evening, Omar Rivera stumbled over to a local mosque, clutching a beer bottle in his hand and looking for a place to answer nature’s call. He chose the Al-Imam Mosque and proceeded to urinate around its exterior, where there were apparently some Muslim prayer rugs lying around. Omar had committed what was a fairly commonplace act of vandalism in the city, public urination. When suddenly he became the poster child for the rise of a “New Islamophobia”.

Along with a drunken liberal arts student who slashed a Muslim cabbie, the media transformed poor Omar into the face of a new and terrible wave of hate directed against Muslims ...

If only it was a “wave of hate”.

Yet, someone makes a portrait of The Virgin Mary out of cow dung & they call it art?

Selective outrage.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA What complete bunk.

One, PHOBIA is an irrational fear.. there is nothing irrational about being skeptical about members of a group who have been slaughtering innocent people and each other for over 1200 years.

Hatred and Fear are not the same thing, I do not fear the Wahabbists, I HATE THEM! I HATE EVERYTHING THEY STAND FOR, AND KNOW THAT THE HUMAN RACE WILL BE BETTER OFF WHEN THEIR IDEOLOGY OF VIOLENCE AND INHUMANITY IS LEFT ON THE ASH HEAP OF HISTORY.

Secondly, I don’t recall the Jewish people engaging in large scale terror campaigns across the globe prior to the holocaust.

This argument is rediculous.

Look...they're a bunch of murderous b*******. It is not a religion. It is not a cult.

It is the rule of law of a movement having global consequences....no different or less barbaric than Hitler. It's goal is not goodness. It's goal is domination and elimination of the Christians and Jews.

Graham got it right the other night.

What a lame headline. But it also indicates a positive shift.

It is good to fear burglars in a high crime neighborhood. It is dumb to fear the guys that own the businesses in that neighborhood.

Moral equivalency doesn't work in this case, because we have no reason to hate OR fear Jews.

The ROP though, is an all together different story!

I saw that.

It also appeared to depict mohammed kneeling before pig-headed dancing girls on a bed.

Ergo, I was torn.

No joke.

Jews don’t violently push their religion or chop people’s heads off.

I have been making posts on other forums about my distrust of ANY Muslims. I don’t get much resistance for it any more. I hope people are realizing that they have had more than enough time to prove that they want peace.

There have been exactly zero instances of Muslims acting toward peace in this world. Any temporary action that they do take has a sinister motive. They will not sustain any peaceful action EVER.

I don't know of any Jews acting like the Muslims, if they start I'll put them on my list too!

If the Muslims don't want to take the heat they should clean house.

I won't hold my breath while I wait!

Oops, didn’t see that part. Now I won’t have to worry about Christs picture because the Muslims are going to do a job on the guy - you know those followers of peace guys/s

I had not heard anything about mohammed being portrayed. Do the muzzies know this? They could solve the problem.

The Fox and Friends folks showed the screen, but didn't mention it.

It was plain as day to me. Look at the bottom row, second frame from left.

There was also pagan and, unfortunately Christian, anti-Semitism, which preceded Islam. Hitler himself defined fascism as “spontaneous return to the traditions of Rome.” In his own mind, he was interested in returning back to the Greco-Roman world that had not yet been infected with the Judeo-Christian virus, yet using the latest Social Darwinian Aryan science to get them there. He, of course, also had a strong outreach to the Muslims when he was alive because of their own strong anti-Semitic legacy. Islam’s anti-Semitism also came out of pagan anti-Semitism.

As far as Christian anti-Semitism goes, as bad as it was, this should perhaps not be surprising since many pagans became Christians. Their anti-Semitism was therefore a carryover from their pagan past, which often never got straightened out, even though the Bible itself strongly teaches against it.

I don’t know who wold be a turbaned man with a “glow” around his head other than Mohammed.

And given his issues with pigs and women, I feel confident opining that that is Mohammed.

It appears the loser is, indeed, an equal opportunity offended.

I actually think the omission of mention about the mohammed picture was a set up -— to portray Christians as radical as the muslims.

I think we Christians ignore the insult to Christians —— it merely give this “artist” press.

Instead, get the word our about the mohammed picture.

Spineless, half-arsed version of Stockhole Syndrome, but very real all the same.

The American options are Boeing's F/A-18 Super Hornet – a single-engine multirole fighter that perhaps struggles to meet Tokyo's need for a twin-engine, air-superiority jet – and Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II, an expensive choice that is still under development and which could only be supplied to Tokyo off the shelf.
The F-18E/F is a dual-engined fighter-bomber. Unlike the Typhoon, it is a naval fighter designed for anti-shipping operations from the beginning.
The Typhoon may be a better choice than the Super Hornet or the still non-operation F-35C, but let's get basic facts straight.

Yes it a Semitic name. "Omer" is Hebrew (Esau's grandson). Umar/Omar is an Arab name. All have the same meaning. It should not be confused with Omri.
As a Biblical name, Protestants use it. Omar Bradly comes to mind.
