I propose all of us infidels accused of Islamophobia rewrite the dictionary. This word is meaningless and actually an oxymoron. The word was created by the Muslim Brotherhood to control the dialogue and use our past errors to manipulate our collective conscience as a nation. Our past issue of slavery led to division and clashes between races that we are still trying to recover from. So when anyone plays the victim card for any reason, we crumble. Muslims are not victims of our perception of them; they are victims of their own ignorance and of an ideology that steals their soul at birth, their minds every day, and never apologizes. An excellent write-up on this topic is covered here: http://sheikyermami.com/2011/08/25/islamophobia-3/
By using the Webster dictionary definition of “phobia”, the Muslim Brotherhood says we infidels suffer from “an irrational, excessive and persistent fear of some particular thing or situation.” Instead, I believe Muslims suffer from an irrational, excessive and persistent HATE and INTOLERANCE of all things non-Muslim. This ideology is taught throughout the Qur’an and the Hadiths. We are most certainly rationally afraid of Islam. We know its bloody tyrannical history and present day influence. We see its poisonous fruit throughout Islamic families, societies and governments. We hear their threats and goals of worldwide domination. We see honor killings, demand for Muslim sharia law, Muslim concessions in holidays, hijab concessions, and mosques and madrassas building at a fever pitch rate, all here on American soil. If our level of fear had grown to “excessive” we wouldn’t still be having the problem with the spread of Islam; we would have squashed it already. But we’re too politically correct to take the bull by the horns and our collective FAILURE to stand against it is damning us to a future you cannot even imagine.
So I’m suggesting a paradigm shift in terminology; one in which WE control the talking points and the definitions. Instead of letting them describe us by their unsavory and ill-suited words, let us describe them by an appropriate moniker: ISLAMOBULLY. Let’s inspect the definitions of bull and bully and see if they fit Islam. According to Webster, a bull is (paraphrased): an adult male large animal, a person who buys stocks expecting them to rise or who seeks to bring such rise, a person regarded in strength like a bull, short for bullshit, to bluff as with insincere talk, to talk foolishly, a ludicrously illogical or incongruous mistake in statement. And here are some common uses of the word: “like a bull in a china shop,” “don’t give me that cock-and-bull-story,” “in the bullpen” “that’s bullshit,” and “like a red flag to a bull.” Other words with “bull” give us an even clearer picture: bulldog, bulldoze, bullfight, bullheaded, bull terrier, and lastly, bully.
According to Webster, a bully is (paraphrased): a person who hurts, frightens or tyrannizes over those who are smaller or weaker, to browbeat. It appears that bullying in the school system has reached epidemic proportions. New laws, websites and organizations have evolved to deal with the problem; check out http://www.schoolsecurity.org/trends/bullying.html. Seems we really don’t want our children being bullied.
One last connection. Around 315 AD Constantine, emperor of the Roman Empire, became a Christian and moved his headquarters to Byzantium and renamed the city Constantinople. The location is pivotal and considered the Gateway to Europe because it lies on the isthmus between Europe and Asia Minor. In 1453 the Muslim Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople. Later they changed the name to Istanbul, which is a shortened version with a Turkish character of the Medieval Greek phrase "εἰς τὴν Πόλιν" [is tim ˈbolin], meaning "to the city." The Muslims immediately converted the largest Christian church in the world, the Haghia Sophia, into a mosque. If you separate the town name into syllables it has even more relevance: I stan Bul. And to cap it off, here’s a recent story from the Wall Street Journal about a new Turkish movie titled “Conquest 1453”: http://blogs.wsj.com/emergingeurope/2012/02/16/turkey%E2%80%99s-blockbuster-replays-istanbul-conquest-stoking-controversy/?mod=google_news_blog. It celebrates the Muslim conquest of Constantinople as “one of the most spectacular, the most proud events in our history.”
According to Islam there are only two parts of the world: Dar al Islam and Dar al Harb. (along their lines of only two types of people: Muslim and infidel) Dar al Islam (House of Peace) is where Islam rules and Dar al Harb (House of War) is where Islam does not yet rule so there must be war to subdue it. The war is allowed to take on whatever form is best suited to the current conditions: civilizational and stealth jihad (moral dilemma, merchant, marriage, money, mosque, madrassas, media, mysticism, migration) when small, then force and violence when sufficient strength has been attained. This is why they claim Islam is a “religion of peace” because when all the lands are finally Dar al Islam, they can stop fighting and experience peace. Terrifyingly brilliant manipulation of words which the uninformed fall for.
Islamobully. Do you think it fits? What do the Qur’an and Hadiths say?
Sura [9.5] So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters
wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in
wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay
the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Sura [9.14] Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to
disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the hearts of a believing people.
Sura [9.41] Go forth light and heavy, and strive hard in Allah's way with your
property and your persons; this is better for you, if you know.
Sura [9.73] O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be
unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.
Sura [9.123] O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you
and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who
guard (against evil).
Sura [5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle
and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be
murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on
opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for
them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement,
Sura [63.4] And when you see them, their persons will please you, and If they speak,
you will listen to their speech; (they are) as if they were big pieces of wood clad
with garments; they think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy,
therefore beware of them; may Allah destroy them, whence are they turned
Sura [24.55] Allah has promised to those of you who believe and do good that He
will most certainly make them rulers in the earth as He made rulers those
before them, and that He will most certainly establish for them their religion
which He has chosen for them, and that He will most certainly, after their fear,
give them security in exchange; they shall serve Me, not associating aught with
Me; and whoever is ungrateful after this, these it is who are the Transgressors.
Sura [48.28] He it is Who sent His Apostle with the guidance and the true
religion that He may make it prevail over all the religions; and Allah is
enough for a witness.
Sura [48.29] Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah, and those with him are firm of
heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among themselves; you will
see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking grace from Allah
and pleasure; their marks are in their faces because of the effect of
prostration; that is their description in the Taurat and their description in
the Injeel; like as seed-produce that puts forth its sprout, then strengthens
it, so it becomes stout and stands firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers
that He may enrage the unbelievers on account of them; Allah has
promised those among them who believe and do good, forgiveness and a
Islam. I slam. I surrender. That is the Arabic definition. Instead our anthem shouted from every rooftop should be “Lan Astalem” which in Arabic means “I will not submit; I will not surrender.”
I will not be bullied by Islamobullies. Islamobully. If the shoe fits…..
