In today’s world, critical thinking is in short supply, which includes differentiating between varying circumstances. For example, it is prudent to oppose unvetted immigration that excludes the essential principle of a two-way street approach to immigration. This does not mean one is racist or “Islamophobic” to promote a two-way street. It spells logic.
It is also not racist to oppose political Islam, Islamic supremacism and jihad; this should be a given for all who enjoy Western freedoms. Unfortunately, there are Muslim groups (such as CAIR and its allies) that are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas terrorist financing. They push a victimology agenda that claims that any criticism of Islam, however justifiable, must be seen as “Islamophobic.” The case of baby Asel Tamga provides a opportunity for these charlatans to employ their bogus victimology agenda yet again.
As far as they are concerned, to point out global atrocities, abuses of women, murders, efforts to delegitimize and obliterate the state of Israel is “Islamophobic.” This victimology subterfuge strategy has been employed by the Muslim Brotherhood for some time, with full support from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which is a main driver of the “Islamophobia” canard.
Now for the case of the Muslim parents who gave birth to Austria’s first newborn of 2018. Congratulations, and may this new child be a blessing to the nation of Austria, fostering integration, harmony, human rights and the like. To attack this couple and levy abusive language against them because of their coreligionists’ misdeeds is atrocious, and undermines the real efforts to battle the sinister forces of political Islam and its Islamic supremacist bullying of Western society.
Still, there are legitimate concerns about the Islamization of Austria and Europe in general. Europeans and North Americans are becoming frustrated with the stifling of legitimate voices warning about Sharia expansion, and the penalizing of the same. Assaults to democratic rights and freedoms are being perpetrated by leaders who ignore legitimate concerns and who have abandoned their responsibilities to protect their citizens. In their cowardice and determination to appease, they fail to advance the principle of human rights for all, regardless of color or creed.
Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen has condemned “the hateful attacks on Baby Asel…After wishing Asel welcome to the world, he added that; ‘all people are born free and equal to dignity and rights.”
Let’s hope that the Austrian president truly supports the dignity of all without partiality, which includes standing against the appeasement of questionable Muslim lobbies that are falsely parading themselves as proponents of diversity and opposition to racism. But the chances of this are most unlikely. Back in April, Van der Bellen called on all women to wear headscarves in solidarity with Muslims to fight what he referred to as “rampant Islamophobia.”
These are the types of politicians who stir divisions in their countries, setting Muslims above every other citizen and rendering empty the words that “all people are born free and equal to dignity and rights.” There remains a gross cognitive dissonance of values among the far-left on issues of human rights, freedom and the equality of women, due to their blindspots and political posturing when pandering to Muslims.
“Austria’s president is forced to step in after country’s first newborn of 2018 is revealed to be Muslim, sparking outpouring of racist abuse towards the parents”, by Sara Malm, Independent, January 8, 2017:
The President of Austria has hit back at racist social media users who attacked a newborn baby for being Muslim.
Asel Tamga became the first Austrian born in 2018. Her birth was celebrated in the local press with a photo of the happy family in which her mother wore a hijab.
A deluge of racist and hateful comments followed on social media, forcing President Alexander Van der Bellen, 73, to step in.
President Van der Bellen shared a Facebook post condemning the hateful attacks on Baby Asel, and added his own stern words of wisdom.
After wishing Asel welcome to the world, he added that; ‘all people are born free and equal to dignity and rights.
Confidence and cohesion are greater than hatred and incitement.’
Naime and Alper Tamga from Vienna welcomed daughter Asel at 00.47 on New Year’s Day, making her the first baby born in Austria in the new year.
A photo of the family was shared on Facebook and a rash of racist comments followed among the thousands of well wishes.
One social media user commented: ‘The next terrorist is born.’
Another person wrote: ‘Does the woman have cancer? Or why does she otherwise wear a headscarf?’
The abuse was so severe that Facebook ended up removing the post, local news reports.
Austrian NGO Netpeace said the deluge of hateful comments is proof that online hatred is growing out of control as social media users even manage to turn a happy family picture into hate speech about religion and ethnicity.
The NGO said it is remarkable that so many people are nowadays even posting such comments under their real name instead of using an alias.
Netpeace spokeswoman Sabine Beck said: ‘We think that this present case shows that it is about time to take measures.
‘We urge the Federal Government to take extensive measures. These range from media education in schools to reinforcement of public prosecutor’s offices.’
The hateful messages come amid tensions in Austrian society over the migrant influx to Europe and Islam.
