“Islamophobia” is indeed a huge swindle, a scam to intimidate people into thinking that there is something wrong with resisting jihad terror. Charb of all people should have known that, and I hope he makes it clear in this book. “Slain Charlie Hebdo editor’s book on Islamophobia to be released as ISIS rapper threatens similar attack in Germany,” by Rachelle Blidner, New York Daily News, April 16, 2015:
Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier was killed in the January attack led by armed gunmen who stormed the current offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.
A book on Islamophobia written by the Charlie Hebdo editor who was slain in the January attack will be released Thursday as a jihadi rapper claimed ISIS is planning a similar strike in Germany.
Stephane (Charb) Charbonnier finished the short book, “Letters to the Islamophobia Swindlers who Play into the Hands of Racists,” two days before brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi stormed the satirical magazine’s Paris office and killed 12 people Jan. 7, the AFP reported.
In the book, Charb defends Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of the Prophet Muhammed, which caused the magazine to be called Islamophobic and to be targeted by the extremists.
“One day, for a laugh, I will have to publish all the threats I received at Charlie Hebdo,” he wrote.
Charb argued that people should fight racism against Muslims instead of Islamophobia, which means the “fear of Islam.”
What race are Muslims again? I keep forgetting.
“A lot of those who campaign against Islamophobia don’t actually do it to defend Muslims as individuals, but to defend Prophet Muhammed’s religion,” he argued.
Charb questioned why the phrase “Muslimophobia” is not used instead.
“The problem is not the Koran or the Bible — sleep-inducing, incoherent and badly written novels — but the faithful who read the Koran or the Bible like you read assembly instructions for Ikea shelves,” he wrote….
This sounds as if Charb was considering the two books to be equivalent. Yet for all his mocking of Christianity, it wasn’t angry Christians who firebombed his offices, threatened him repeatedly, and ultimately murdered him and his colleagues.
