The far-Left Center for American Progress last week issued “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America,” the latest in an ever-lengthening string of markedly similar “exposés” claiming that the problem America and the world face is not Islamic jihad, but “Islamophobia.” These reports all claim to show that the anti-jihad movement in America is a sinister cabal of well-funded, dishonest hacks stirring up hate against innocent Muslims in order to profit from it. Like them, it is highly distorted and markedly unfair, twisting the facts and cooking the data in order not to enlighten but to propagandize -- and ignoring the reality of Islamic jihad activity altogether.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is in the midst of a full-scale, years-long campaign at the United Nations to compel the West to criminalize any honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to recruit and motivate terrorists; these “Islamophobia” reports serve the OIC’s agenda of ruling discussion of jihad activity off limits and thereby rendering the West mute and defenseless in the face of the advancing jihad. This pamphlet reveals the sinister agenda behind the "Islamophobia" campaign.
In 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini, the ruler of the Islamic Republic of Iran, issued a fatwa calling on all Muslims worldwide to murder the novelist Salman Rushdie for insulting the Muslim prophet Muhammad and Islam. Rushdie's crime? Blasphemy or Islamophobia. Since then we have seen worldwide violent Muslim protests over cartoons, blasphemy laws in Europe, prosecutions of notable opponents of Islamic terror like Oriana Fallaci and Geert Wilders and the demonization of courageous opponents of Islamic imperialism and terror in the West. And now the inventors of the concept of "Islamophobia" are more intent than ever to destroy the freedom of speech and end all examination of jihadist motives and goals -- hoping thereby to end all resistance to jihad.
This vitally important essay by David Horowitz and Robert Spencer describes the origins of the word "Islamophobia" as a coinage of the Muslim Brotherhood, traces the campaign in the U.N. to criminalize the criticism of Islam and exposes its role in the Brotherhood's campaign to "destroy the American civilization from within." An absolutely essential primer of the global struggle against religious intolerance and totalitarianism.
