In September 2014, Obama stated that “ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
That statement is as ludicrous, as Muslims killing Muslims is a longstanding practice. Published in an article by the Asian Image, a news site for British Muslims and Hindus:
“So, whilst we may well moan of Islamophobia, let’s face it, the biggest threat to Muslims are in fact other Muslims.” Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah was murdered for “disrespecting Islam” and then there was the killing of a Rochdale Muslim leader by fellow Muslims for “practicing black magic”.
If Muslims are to be concerned about being victimized, they need to look in their own backyard, as Muslim-on-Muslim attacks are a much bigger threat to Muslims than the invented term “Islamophobia.” Some Muslims just don’t think other Muslims are Muslim enough, so they kill them and/or marginalize them:
“As a Muslim you are more likely to be abused for your belief by another Muslim on social media than you are from a non-Muslim.”
The fact is that Muslims are killing Muslims in droves, but Israel and Westerners get condemned. Since 1948, over 10 million Muslims have been killed by Muslims. The propaganda about “Islamophobia” is glaring, and is clearly an agenda-driven tool to subjugate Westerners into dhimmitude.
“Muslim on Muslim hatred is far more of a problem than hatred against non-Muslims”, Asian Image, by Amjad Malik, August 23, 2016:
The idea that one deserves to die for blasphemy is something that has been common in Muslim culture for many years.
Recently, Tanveer Ahmed was sentenced for the brutal murder of Asad Shah. The case heard that Ahmed was incensed over the beliefs held by Mr Shah. He then travelled to Glasgow to brutally murder the family man and shopkeeper.
What was shocking was he held no remorse for the killing.
This belief that one will be rewarded in the afterlife for upholding the name of Islam in this way is clearly a major issue within the Muslim community not only here but worldwide.
Individuals are being taught that blasphemy should be punishable by death. Speaking up against such incidents is the job of all the imams and religious leaders in this country. But you are unlikely to hear clear condemnations.
To condemn this is to some way suggest that you agree with the opposing view.
Which isn’t the case at all but you will find most Muslims will not publicly speak up about blasphemy in case they themselves get drawn into the argument. It is an argument you are unlikely to win.
In this case Ahmed clearly did not feel that Mr Shah had the right to follow his own beliefs.
Sadly, I have spoken to many people who do agree with that.
You have Imams and religious leaders who will publicly talk of Islam being a religion of peace but privately condone the killing of individuals who are deemed to have blasphemed. Even if the case is unclear we will condemn them.
What is just as worrying is that in the UK we now have groups and individuals who are have learnt the benefit of keeping quiet on particular issues.
This is not just a Muslim problem though as all religions have similar questions to answer.
As a Muslim you are more likely to be abused for your belief by another Muslim on social media than you are from a non-Muslim. This can be anything from Eid celebrations to simply commemorating the Prophet’s birthday.
One only has to view the opinions of the next generation of ‘Islamic experts’ on social media who will spend hours and days encouraging their army of followers to spread this narrative.
This is not just a male thing either. It is clear that women are as equally prone to this idea that they must abuse others who do not follow the ‘correct path.’ We Muslims have become obsessed with pointing out minor differences and the belief prevails that one is more superior than the next person because one follows a different school of thought.
And whilst we may well like to highlight the rampant Islamophobia, you are unlikely to say anything of the religious schools of thought and organisations that clearly are teaching young children that they are inherently better Muslims than others in their own community…
…We have groups and schools who receive public money and are following set beliefs that hammer home the message that one is more of a Muslim because one follows a particular Islamic theology.
These are not extremists. Publicly not anyway.
So, whilst we may well moan of Islamophobia, let’s face it, the biggest threat to Muslims are in fact other Muslims…
