Hatem (“Hate ’em”) Bazian is a key propagandist of the “Islamophobia” myth: he is the founder of the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project at the University of California at Berkeley. Can you imagine the University of California at Berkeley opening up a Germanophobia Research and Documentation Project during World War II, and ascribing all criticism of Nazism to some irrational hatred of Germans?
Anyway, I have news for “Hate ’em,” although there is no doubt that this cynical hate propagandist already knows it full well: if anyone has any dislike for or suspicion of Islam or Muslims, it isn’t because of me, David Horowitz, Steven Emerson, Pamela Geller, Ann Coulter, David Yerushalmi, “Frank Gavnney,” and the rest. It’s because of Salman Abedi, Syed Rizwan Farook, Tashfeen Malik, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and innumerable other jihad mass murderers and jihad terror masterminds. The entire “Islamophobia” enterprise is a massive bait-and-switch, designed to shift attention away from actual jihad killers, and shift blame for their deeds onto the small group of counterterror analysts and human rights activists who are actually trying to call attention to what they are doing.
