Actually — you guessed it — it cautioned against “Islamophobia.” Yet again a Muslim group claims victim status after a jihad attack, instead of making any genuine effort to prevent the next one. This obviously gives the lie to their claims of moderation and their entire public posture, but no one seems to notice or care. “Extremist suspect upends French presidential race,” by Elaine Ganley for the Associated Press, March 22 (thanks to all who sent this in):
…”Muslims like Jews, Jews like Muslims, and condemn all confusion that might be made between the international political situation in the Middle East and the monstrous act that … has horrified all French,” the Grand Rabbi of France Gilles Bernheim said Wednesday after meeting with Muslim leaders and Sarkozy.
“Muslims like Jews, Jews like Muslims”? Bernheim sounds as if he’s quoting Barney the Dinosaur. I wonder if he has ever read Qur’an 5:82, which designates the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims.
Mohammed Moussaoui, president of the CFCM, an umbrella group for French Muslims, said what the suspect has done “is the very negation of … Islam,” on the France-2 TV network.
The powerful fundamentalist Muslim organization UOIF asked all citizens “not to succumb to the panic of stigmatizing Muslims, which feeds Islamophobia.”
Muslims stigmatize themselves by committing massacres like Merah’s in the name of Islam. Then they further stigmatize themselves by whining about “backlash” and “Islamophobia” after those massacres, instead of doing anything sincere to prevent them. Muslims have no one but themselves to blame for any actual “Islamophobia.”
