Atlas Shrugged ^ | January 28, 2012

Posted on 01/29/2012 2:41:19 PM PST by NYer

The FBI has released its hate crime statistics for 2010 (year of the Ground Zero mosque). Put on your splashguards as the propaganda hits the fan. Expect a whole lot of whining and harassing from the usual Muslim Brotherhood suspects, but there is no there there.

According to newly-released FBI statistics for 2010, anti-Islamic hate crimes in the U.S. rose in 2010 (160 incidents, 186 offenses, and 197 victims in 2010, compared to 107 incidents, 128 offenses, and 132 victims in 2009).

When can we get anti-infidel statistics both nationally and worldwide? When can people get the cold hard numbers of kuffarophobia? Where is the international condemation of the worldwide escalation of the persecution, slaughter and subjugation of non-Muslims living in Muslim (and non-Muslim) countries?

On page 75 of my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, I explain the sinister orgins of the thought-crushing device, "Islamophobia":

The very word “Islamophobia” is a fictional construct, as journalist Claire Berlinski explains, “The neologism ‘Islamophobia’ did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia….Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. ‘This loathsome term,’ he writes, ‘is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.’”85

Discover the Networks reports, "Although the term was coined in the early 1990s, 'Islamophobia' did not become the focus of an active Brotherhood campaign until after 9/11."

Hate Crimes: FBI Stats on Muslims, Jews, Gays, Hispanics Dearborn Free Press (hat tip Myers)

Those who push the “Islamophobia” narrative to muzzle critics of Islamism are touting the report as proof that Muslims face unique perils at the hands of American bigots. Yet proper context, found primarily in this table, reveals that criminal acts of hate against Muslims fall far short of an epidemic:

Aptly critiquing the responses to different faith-based hate crimes, Jonathan S. Tobin asks:

Because the far greater number of attacks on Jews is not viewed (even by those groups dedicated to monitoring anti-Semitism such as the Anti-Defamation League) as proof the country is boiling with hatred for Jews, how can anyone rationally argue that the far fewer number of assaults on Muslims can justify the conclusion that Islamophobia is rampant.

For Islamists, though, rationality comes second to their agenda. “CAIR and other groups like it want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat,”  notes Robert Spencer.

Read the rest.

I always thought the term islamophobia could be contributed to the wonderful word smithing from Orwell’s novel 1984. Regardless, I would think being anti-islamism is right up there with anti-nazism or anti-communism; that is, islam is not compatible under any circumstances with Western, Judeo-Christian culture and civilization. I suppose it will take social unrest or civil war at some point to get this realization across, but just watching Europe and Great Britain writhe in pain as it attempts to deal with this divided cultural morass that will only get worse is an early warning to the rest of the civilized world, mohammedans will not submit to the West, under any circumstances. They come to conquer, by hook or by crook, by war or terror or lies or corruption, by any means possible, in order to succeed. It is in their history, it is in their beliefs, it is the basis of their culture. Be forewarned, again, for the umpteenth time in the last 30 years,but more importantly, the last 1,400 years.

I wish the author hadn’t used that quote.

In context, Hitler’s use of the big lie was against the Jews, claiming that *they* created the “big lie” that it was Ludendorff’s fault that Germany lost World War I.

Then the expression was adopted by Joseph Goebbels, who accused Churchill (and the English leadership) of using the “big lie”.

The modern consensus was that the Nazi protest *against* the “big lie”, was in fact ‘projection’. That is, the liars calling their enemies liars.
