    UN Forum Explores Ways To Fight ‘Islamophobia’

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 2:15 pm

    The U.N. and those who rally around the U.N. have found the cause for “Islamophobia”. The West did it! A participant from Egypt proclaimed that holy war is not a part of Islam. It was a western invention to smear Muslims. Anyone who has read the Koran knows that holy war and jihad are an integral part of the religion. The Haddith expand on this and make it clear that Muhammad believed holy war was not only necessary, but required. How else can you interpret verses that say Islam will spread throughout the planet by the sword? Countless verses instruct the Muslim faithful to kill the infidel, the Christians, and the Jews wherever they find them. But, these are facts, and they have no place in a U.N. conference.

    Islamophobia is not a bigoted, baseless fear of Muslims. It’s a fear of plains flying into buildings, Muslims blowing themselves up in markets, and dirty bombs going off in our cities. Perhaps if Muslims would stand up and fight against this kind of terrorism, or at least speak out against it, the rest of us would see them as an ally rather than a possible enemy. The silence from Muslim leaders coupled with the number of Muslim charities found to be supporting terrorist groups leads to a fear of the Muslims in our midst. If Muslims focused on their own problems instead of blaming the west it would go a long way toward removing the fear people have of a growing Muslim population in their communities. A little introspection is called for here, not finger pointing and blame.

    A deep misunderstanding of Islam is fueling anger, hatred, and fear about one of the world’s great religions.

    Scholars and diplomats from around the world gathered in New York on 7 December to discuss the rising wave of anti-Muslim sentiment. Secretary-General Kofi Annan kicked off the daylong seminar at UN headquarters.

    “When the world is compelled to coin a new term to take account of increasingly widespread bigotry — that is a sad and troubling development,” Annan said. “Such is the case with ‘Islamophobia.’ The word seems to have emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Today, the weight of history and the fallout of recent developments have left many Muslims around the world feeling aggravated and misunderstood, concerned about the erosion of their rights and even fearing for their physical safety.”

    Annan rejected widely held views that Islam is incompatible with democracy or irrevocably hostile to modernity and women’s rights. He said stereotypes also unfairly depict Muslims as anti-Western despite a history of commerce and interaction in the arts and sciences.

    Getting over Islamophobia and any other kind of phobia is crucial in a world of intense global economic competition, according to Annan. “Any strategy to combat Islamophobia must depend heavily on education, not just about Islam but about all religions and traditions so that myths and lies can be seen for what they are,” he said. “We must prevent the media and the Internet from being used to spread hatred while, of course, safeguarding freedom of opinion and expression.” . . . . . . .

      Well,…Interesting! A religion bases it’s actions and behavior on it’s core of beliefs, in this case ‘The Koran’. The study of history can be a precise tool in predicting the present and future actions of a social, political, or in this case, religious giant.(Providing that the history being studied hasn’t been revised or corrupted, look at the revised version of history the moslem’s have established Re: Israel & the Temple Mount.)Tell a Lie,..Long enough, and big enough…and it will become a accepted truth! 1,400 years of conversion and conquest by the sword in the name of allah, is a historical (Etched in stone) FACT! For the followers of Islam to change their M.O., they would have to change their religions. Putting a warm & fuzzy peaceful label on Islam by the U.N., is at it’s very best complicity in the global conquest. At it’s worst,…a total disregrad of factual history! Islan will not change it’s spots, camouflage yes, if it’s expedient to gain more power and control in today’s more subtle conquest by the sword in the west,…but the spots remain just below the surface. We are feeding the alligator, so he eats us last, on this present course of denial.

      There is one more troubling component in Annan’s comments. That is regarding the internet,…the U.N. desperately wants control of global internet content! Not so long ago the un tried to sell this to the world Re: The control of porno, now it’s hate speach!

      Beware Saints!
