Islamophobia – Is It Justified?

So much has been written in the last few years about the rise of so-called ‘Islamophobia’, and it has drawn much criticism. But what is it, and is it justified?

Getting To Europe Any Way We Can

Getting To Europe Any Way We Can

Europe has in excess of 56 million immigrants and more are coming every day. These rising numbers are caused by the violence in the Middle East and African countries from terrorist groups, and from the continued hardship of climate change in Africa.

No-one can blame these people for wanting a better life, and an escape from the terror and hardship they are forced to suffer in their own countries. But when you move to a new one, you are expected to adapt to the living conditions and people that give you a new home, to accept their culture and ways. Naturally, no-one will expect you to give up the essential parts of your own previous life, like religion.

Get The Picture?

Get The Picture?

Many European citizens have become afraid of the rise of Islam in their country through the millions of immigrants that have settled here over the past fifteen years or so. The people are afraid because they see their way of life being threatened by the increasing numbers, many of whom refuse to accept the European way of life and try to change it.

Many families coming to Europe do adapt to the situation of a new country and integrate into society as they should, and for these people we must have nothing but praise. The important thing is not to tar these people with the same brush as those who demonstrate on the streets of our cities demanding our surrender.

The Hidden Truth

The Hidden Truth

I believe the main reason why people think of any protest against Muslim immigrants as Islamophobia, is they confuse the issue of complaints against the behaviour of these people with a direct attack on Islam as a religion.

This is not an attack on the Islamic religion in any shape or form, but more a protest at the way Muslims are undermining the traditional way of life of Europeans. You cannot move to another country as a refugee and then expect the local people to give up their lifestyle to accommodate you.

Christianity Forbidden

In Saudi Arabia Christianity is Forbidden So Where Is The Religious Tolerance There?

Imagine if you will, the effect on the people of Saudi Arabia, where Christianity is totally outlawed. What if Christians started pouring in as refugees and then began demanding the government build Christian churches for them? Imagine the reaction if these same people demanded to have pork in their diet, and the schools change their curriculum to accommodate them? Begin to get the picture?

Being an immigrant does not mean you have to lose your identity, but you have to integrate with the people you have chosen to live with, and most important, respect their traditions and customs as they should yours. First and foremost must be the will to learn the language of your new country and make the necessary adjustments to your lifestyle to accommodate the local inhabitants.

Acceptance

Acceptance

It is certain that if any immigrant takes the time and trouble to learn the language and respect the culture and traditions of their new home, as many have, they will be quickly assimilated into society. Those that do not never will be, and this is the main problem facing European countries, because many Muslim immigrants refuse to make any effort to adapt, and try to change their new country to resemble that which they left behind.

To do this they take over huge sections, or  in some cases whole towns, and turn them into something similar to what they left behind. Whole areas of cities are becoming a no-go area for the indigenous inhabitants, and in areas of Britain, and perhaps other cities across Europe, they enforce their own strict Sharia Law on everybody.

Is This Islamophobia?

In Britain in particular there are violent daily demonstrations by radical Muslims who carry insulting and violence-provoking placards that proclaim hate for anything non-Muslim. The police are powerless to do anything about such things because of Tony Blair’s racism laws that he introduced to silence critics of his ‘Multi-Cultural Britain’ policy. Such is the damage done by this law that any demonstration by Muslim radicals is given a police escort, but if a single Brit stands up and says anything about immigrants he is immediately arrested under these same laws.

Muslim Benefit Scroungers

Another bone of contention is the number of immigrants who consistently live off the tax payer and make no effort to  find a job and earn an honest living. Such are the immigration laws put in place by Tony Blair, that a single immigrant can enter the U.K. and then proceed to bring his entire family into the country to live off benefits.

The biggest fear  is that the new Muslim generation of Europeans are insinuating themselves into all walks of European life and are changing it rapidly to suit themselves.

Trojan Horse

Trojan Horse

In Britain many schools must provide halal food to all their pupils because of protests by Muslims, and the curriculum is adapted to the Muslim agenda because of the high numbers in the schools. A British child is slowly but surely being frozen out due to the swing to satisfying Muslim demands. Naturally we have all heard by now of the ‘Trojan Horse’ scandal where Muslims literally took over schools in some cities and started teaching a fully Muslim curriculum to all children, including the British.

These are the kind of attacks that have made Islamophobia what it is, a protest against these devious tactics by Muslims to eventually gain control. Its not an attack on the whole idea of Islam at all, but more about the way in which its followers are undermining British traditions and values. The same thing is happening in countries like France, Holland, Belgium and Denmark.

Dresden Demonstration

Dresden Demonstration

It is most disturbing that in Britain and many other countries, the politicians are doing everything they can to silence these voices of protest and it became evident recently when Angela Merkel and many of her colleagues in the German government condemned the rise of anti-immigration demonstrations in Dresden recently saying it was Islamophobic!  It is interesting to note that from a small beginning the demonstrations have steadily grown in size, and now there are counter-demonstrations of those who believe in Islamophobia.

There is one immigrant for which I have the deepest respect, and that is Ahmed Aboutaleb, the Muslim mayor of Rotterdam, Holland’s second largest city. He is Moroccan born and became mayor of Rotterdam in 2008 and he made it clear where his heart is. He has proclaimed to Dutch Muslims that “It is incomprehensible that you can turn against freedom. But if you don’t like freedom, for heaven’s sake pack your bags and leave.”

He said openly on Dutch TV that any Muslim who does not want to integrate should go back to where they came from. He has been scathing in his comments on those who refuse to join Dutch society and quite rightly so.

But you see, this is not ‘Islamophobia’, it does not attack Islam as a religion, all it does is point out that any Muslim immigrant who cannot accept integrating into the Dutch way of life should leave, and go somewhere where he/she will be more comfortable.

I  am just glad there is at least one politician who is not afraid to say what must be said, the only other one I know is also Dutch, Geert Wilders.

What The Politically Correct Brigade Want!

What The Politically Correct Brigade Want!

Europe needs more of its politicians to stand up to these people instead of bowing down to them constantly. You cannot expect the European people to accept Muslim immigrants if they are trying to take over, and the government gives them more rights than they give their own people.

So the final conclusion is that so-called ‘Islamophobia’ is not an attack on Islam the religion. It is more a way of people expressing their worry about what is happening in their country when they see Muslims refusing to integrate, and their own way of life being slowly crushed under the weight of new Muslim immigrants numbering in the hundreds of thousands every year.

I think that just about says it all. I would certainly like to hear your views on this subject. After all, we do still retain a certain amount of free speech.
