Spot on Michael!
Will the Islamophobia never end?
Here’s the hypocrisy in as simple a form as I can convey it:
- In Western society, Christians, Jews and all other religious groups are required to be tolerant of Islam, the badly behaved and spoilt child in the room, at all costs;
- Islam as an ideology is pathologically intolerant of Christianity, Judaism and every other religious group (and in fact, anything non-Muslim at all) and shows little sign of changing;
- Yet despite items 1 and 2, the real problem is Islamophobia?
I therefore suggest we use the word ‘Islamophobia’ to mean the hatred Islam shows for anything non-Muslim, including such things as:
- Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Israel, the United States, the West in general, democracy, equal rights for women, homosexuals, Christmas trees, crosses, dogs, alcohol, music, fun, integration, Australia, un-hijabbed or un-niqabbed girls, etc., etc.,
Now we have redefined the word, can someone please do something to stop the Islamophobia?
