The World Muslim Minorities Summit “aims to boost ties between Turkey and Muslim minorities under the motto ‘The Believers are but a single Brotherhood.’ In an opening speech, Erdoğan lashed out at the West for stoking anti-Islam sentiment in its bid ‘to impose its own ideology and lifestyle.'”
This is the simple but powerful tactic employed by jihadists seeking global expansion into the West: scream “Islamophobia” while working to expand the domains of Islam. It’s a win-win for Islamic expansionists such as Erdogan, who dreams of a revived Ottoman Empire. The tactic works in this way: the greater the violence by Muslims, the more jihad terror attacks and sharia enforcement there is in the West (and they’re on the rise since the hijrah into Europe began), the greater the pushback will be from those who strive to preserve free societies. The greater the pushback, the more jihadists (stealth and violent) will claim victimhood and charge non-Muslims with “racism,” “Islamophobia” and the like. The idea is to “cast terror into the hearts of disbelievers” (Quran 8:12) and then call them “Islamophobic” and “racist” when the disbelievers try to defend themselves. The Islamic supremacists also increase in rage and commit acts of violence in face of any resistance to their supremacy, and then blame the infidel for provoking them. Leftists always fall for this trick, accusing those who oppose the jihad of inflaming Muslims, as if they were incapable of civilized behavior and self-control.
Ankara has “stepped up rhetoric” against what Erdogan calls “rising anti-Islam sentiment particularly in Europe.” Erdogan threatened last year that “Europeans would not be able to walk safely on the streets if they kept up their current attitude towards Turkey.” Europeans are now not able to walk safely in the streets, because their governments have allowed in too many unvetted Muslim migrants.
Turkey’s “attitude” is what needs the adjustment.
On January 20 and 21, 2018, 90,000 Turkish mosques prayed Qur’anic “conquest” prayers calling on Muslims to be “ruthless against unbelievers” and for victory against the Kurds, right before thousands of Turkish soldiers were dispatched. Erdogan has also called for “an army of Islam” to destroy Israel.
It is Muslims who are attacking infidels, not the other way around. Erdogan is an instigator and propagator of the “Islamophobia” trick, along with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and Muslim Brotherhood groups.
“Erdoğan slams Western countries stoking hatred against Muslims”, Daily Sabah, April 16, 2018:
The World Muslim Minorities Summit opened in Istanbul yesterday amid President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s strong criticism of the West’s anti-Islam sentiment. The four-day event, organized by the Presidency of Religious Affairs (DİB), brings together representatives, academics, experts and journalists from 100 countries where Muslim minorities live and focuses both on the internal problems of the communities and the challenges they endure in the face of Islamophobia. On the first day of the summit, the participants discussed the past and future of Muslim minorities and today, they will debate issues ranging from freedom of minorities to radicalization.
On the third day, problems regarding religious services and maintaining religious education will be discussed. The summit, the first of its kind, aims to boost ties between Turkey and Muslim minorities under the motto “The Believers are but a single Brotherhood.” In an opening speech, Erdoğan lashed out at the West for stoking anti-Islam sentiment in its bid “to impose its own ideology and lifestyle.” Known for his frank criticism of what he calls the hypocrisy of Western countries who are turning a blind eye to their histories of colonialism, Erdoğan said they wanted to stain Islam through “terrorist groups engineered to accomplish that.” The president said attacks against Muslims and refugees has become “an ordinary thing” in many countries championing democracy and law.
“Racists and fascist groups target businesses, homes and places of worships belonging to Muslims, particularly in Germany, the Netherlands, France and Belgium. Muslim women are harassed because they wear headscarves, for instance, in France,” he said.
Erdoğan pointed to the multi-layered, multi-sided wave of attacks against Muslims in the post 9/11 period “through gangs with blood on their hands.” “Terror attacks by Daesh, Boko Haram, al-Shabab, FETÖ, etc. both harm us and give opportunities to anti-Islam circles to defame Islam. They ask: ‘How come Muslims do not shed blood? Isn’t Islam a religion of peace?’ They ignore the plight of Muslims and the slaying of Muslims by those groups. On the contrary, they hold Muslims accountable for these brutal murders. Most Western countries, in a bid to smokescreen their internal problems, stoke this fire,” he said. He lashed out at “seemingly clean” countries with histories of massacres and immorality. “I asked one of them in a phone call recently why they didn’t account for killing 5 million in Algeria,” he said, referring to a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Ankara has stepped up rhetoric against rising anti-Islam sentiment particularly in Europe and Parliament’s human rights committee launched a probe into Islamophobia on the continent amid reports that in Germany alone, some 950 Muslims and Muslim institutions faced attacks in 2017…..
