France: Muslims call on Hollande to denounce “Islamophobia”

Any kind of attack on innocent people is utterly reprehensible. If Muslims in France believe they are the recipients of unjustified suspicion, however, they can end “Islamophobia” without Hollande having to say a word. Here’s how:

1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively, sincerely, honestly, and in deeds, not just in comforting words, not just “terrorism,” but any intention to replace the French constitution (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by stating unequivocally that non-Muslim civilians, including Israelis, are innocent people, teaching accordingly in mosques and Islamic schools, and behaving in accord with these new teachings.
3. Teach, again sincerely and honestly, in transparent and verifiable ways in mosques and Islamic schools, the imperative of Muslims coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis, and act accordingly.
4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach sincerely against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.
5. Actively and honestly work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

If Muslims do those five things, voila! “Islamophobia” will evanesce!

“Muslims call on Hollande to speak out,” from UPI, November 9 (thanks to Block Ness):

PARIS, Nov. 9 (UPI) — French Muslims have called on President Francois Hollande to make a “solemn declaration” against Islamophobia as he has against anti-Semitism in the past.

Leaders of the Muslim umbrella body, the CFCM met with Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault Thursday to discuss what they called a rise in Islamophobia, Radio France Internationale reported.

The group said anti-Muslim acts rose 34 percent in 2011.

CFCM called on Hollande to condemn Islamophobia in a “solemn declaration,” similar to when he spoke out against anti-Semitism.

    Isn’t it funny how people who are alleged to be racist against Muslims are not at all racist against Hindus who are racially exactly the same as Pakistani Muslims?
    Isn’t it funny that our “suspicion of the non-Western other” does not extend to Buddhists?

    The fundamental problem is that the Muslim world — purely out of intimidation — refuses to vet Muhammad using absolute moral standards.

    The Muslim world must collectively and simultaneously put aside its fear of Muslim-retaliation and Allah-retaliation and demand that Muhammad be vetted on the same basis as Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, the good Shepherd, the Way, the Truth, the Life has been vetted for 2000 years.

    When the Muslim world does that, there can be progress toward equality and actual peace among Muslims and other people.

    Until Muslims worldwide vet Muhammad using absolute moral standards, they will remain in darkness.

    I could add a few;

    Stop wearing bags that cover your face, expecting people to ‘respect’it. Why should we ?

    Stop lifting your backsides in so-called ‘prayer’ in public streets.

    Stop demanding special treatment, and calling people racists who despise your disgusting cult.

    There’s more, but it’s late, and I’m off to byebye.

    I call on all muslims to denounce homophobia! How about misogyny? No? Pedophilia? Murder and persecution of Christians? Didn’t think so: to paraphrase an admired commenter here, “effin’ self-important clowns!”

    Who dares to say the French Muslims attack the Jews. More Islamophobic propaganda. For centuries since Muhammad first offered the hand of friendship to the Jews of Arabia, the followers of Allah have enjoyed 1400 years of peace, love and understanding with their friends at the synagogue. At Christmas it is a long standing custom for them to gather around the tree and sing carols. Remember Allah sings best.

    In a way and on a certain level, all non-Muslim non-white peoples have become in the eyes of PC MC “Honorary Whites” who have to take second place to the only perceived Non-White People that matters: Muslims.

    You really got a point here. I feel the same way. I’ve got so many Hindu friends by now on fb, and Northern Indians are of the same race as Pakis. But their behaviour is so different, they’re living in different worlds. To paraphrase president Clinton, “It’s the ideology, stupid” Islam is a brainwashing ideology and obviously lots of people of impact in the Western world, especially in Europe are taken in.

    France has the largest Mahoundian minority in Europe – 6 million – and they claim to be victimised, to be the new Jews. This claim is preposterous, even indecent. But those who watch the news parrot it although they’ve got no idea what they’re talking about. Our media is infiltrated.

    P.S.: My point being that, because of the irrational elevation of Muslims by PC MC to the status of the #1 Privileged Ethnic Minority, we won’t earn any brownie points for our love of non-Muslim Brown People.

    Muslims’ idea of ‘morality’ is what is halal and haram as spelled out in the unholy qur’an. You must dispel any notions that their moral values are similar to ours; if allah/muhammad/qur’an say something is permissible, like marriage to an infant, slavery, rape, polygamy, misogyny,torture, genocide, etc., muslims consider those abominations divinely sanctioned and morally impeccable. Muhammad is considered the perfect man and eternal role model for muslims. Even to non-religious Westerners, the muslim moral code and value system are pure evil.

    Muslims resemble aliens from another planet; strange, hostile, incompatible creatures that do not belong in civilized societies. Good is evil, evil is good; they have it all backwards.

    I understand your statements about the unique Islamic definition of morality: What is permitted and what is forbidden for Muslims is completely defined by Muhammad’s life and utterances.

    I have read — during very many hours — scores of comments that were written by Muslims to others and to me personally on various websites, and I have personally written what I consider to be bulletproof logical arguments to individual Muslims.

    I have thus far concluded that many Muslims keep ignoring the facts that are plainly presented to them because they are living in fear — they are continuously intimidated by threats from other Muslims and from Allah. Some keep arguing that white is really black and that black is really white, which to me is irrational, unless I consider the intimidation under which they are living. (Although dhimmis in our society don’t fear Allah, they do fear being rejected by others — peer pressure.)

    Muslims must somehow put aside that fear and then recant. Muslims have nothing in actuality to fear from Allah if they recant, but they might have much to fear from other Muslims if they recant, depending upon where and among whom they are living.

    My current view is that many Muslims don’t recant because they live in perpetual fear; and that if that fear of Allah and other Muslims were suddenly assuredly removed by some miracle, many would leave Islam.

    How do we help to make that happen?

    It is not enough for us to keep telling Muslims that Muhammad was a terrible role model for them and that Muhammad’s presentation of Allah to them — via the Qur’an and other Islamic writings — is deeply flawed (i.e., God is not really like that at all). Muslims must also be shown, by bold proclamation, a much better alternative for their lives, which I assert to be Jesus the Messiah, the Savior of the world, the Light of the world.

    Muslims have been taught to place Muhammad on a pedestal above Jesus, but that cannot continue if Muslims are to be set free from bondage. Muhammad must be removed from the pedestal by being compared directly with Jesus. When I write directly to Muslims on the web, I compare Muhammad with Jesus. If I were talking face to face with a Muslim, I would do the same thing.

    John 1:4-5 (ESV)
    “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
    The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

    Islam is darkness. Light must be made to shine into it.

    This is both a physical and a spiritual battle, so it cannot be won by physical weapons alone.
