  • I develop Islamophobia
     OP - June 02, 2017, 08:39 PM

    Good evening everybody,
    so after going through a depression which lasted almost 2 years i finally came to the conclusion to leave Islam once for all. Youtube channels like ,,The masked arab'' and ,,Acts17Apologetics'' helped me alot, they actually made me laugh and realize how ridiculous this religion is. It is indeed the crackpot of all religions. I won't point out why i left Islam, since its more than obivous. Now im a happy atheist enoying life without fearing gehinnom, i mean gehenna.

    But now i face a new problem: Islamaophobia

    The fact that there are still millions of muslims in europe WANTING Islam to be dominant and WANTING  Sharia law makes me really sick and depressiv. I was one of them, i used to love the refugee crisis since i thought it was a mercy from allah sending so many muslims to us making it easier to islamize europe. But now i actually don't want them, i want them to go back but we know that won't happen. They will all breed like crazy and their offspring will probably radicalize and spread more hateful islamic views. This is what im scared of: Rise of islamic terrorism and extremism in europe.

    I want to party, i want to gout, i want to live without having to fear terrorist attacks all the time. I really wish our gouvernments would grow some balls and just deport everyone who is against our democracy.

    How do you deal with these fears of muslims? Im becoming racist, too. I used to love somalis for being such strict muslims, now i hate them and i don't want my children growing up with these of people in EUROPE.

    It's okay to have a sort of backlash against Islam when you leave. I am sure many of us do. But racism and islamophobia are not okay.
    Most Muslims are nice people. You know it, and I know it.
    Don't radicalize yourself over to the dark side. Get back to being reasonable. Racism is sick.

    I am aware that different Muslim communities have several problems but this was not one that I experienced. I knew some rather crazy Muslim as a child, but they were not on this level (rejoicing a humanitarian crisis and scheming for world domination). Just because your community is a bunch of nutjobs doesn't mean that it's legitimate for you to lump all or most Muslims in with them.

    .............how ridiculous this religion is. .
    ...............It is indeed the crackpot of all religions.....

    But now i face a new problem: Islamaophobia

    hello Lemoncake ... cakes and pastries with lemon  makes me eat even at midnight .. welcome to the den., well you seems to be doing fine  except some phobias..we all have some phobias .. I have phobia about filth..poop..shit ...and shit in faith heads + shit in faith books .. but I have no phobias  about Dog Poop...

    So what I am saying is.,   you are no exception having some phobias ., We got to  learn to live some phobias .,   Evolutionary biology tells me Fear & Phobias are good things ., These good things will instantaneously kick the survival instinct  that all biological species  are born with  
    .

    anyways I understand religion,  i understand faith, i understand crackpot faiths and I fairly well understood Islam and its scriptures, its history .

    but what I do not understand is the word  "Islamophobia".. what is it ?  and what do you know about it?

    Huh!  what ?  why that should make you sick  and depressive?  it is their problem... It is Islamofaith heads   problem.. .,  that is not your problem.

    Do you get sick looking sick  people  in the hospitals?

     so what??   you were one of them...  that is past .. Past is past .. and you have unnecessary  fear of Islamization of europe., not only you many have it.,   These are stupid faith heads .. we just need to put ONLY ONE THING  into their stupid brains ..  that will end their rigid faith

    Many  folks  all over the globe and many CEMB members here use that word   "islamophobia"   very loosely without understanding the word itself .,  Often it is confused  hate against  Muslim folks .,   MuslimPhobia and sometimes it is coupled to  "racism" without knowing the connection between these words and definition to these words. We must note here  all those  three words/behavioural problems of people with those three characters are different

    Like what three said,

    You need to always try to stick to the substance of the problem. Don't get carried away by the surface. Remember, anything excessive/exaggerated is not good, and vice versa.

    Put the right thing into the right place at the right time.

    Hating an Ideology is okay, but you need to look further before hating the person. Misdirected Hatred is not good.

    "crisis since i thought it was a mercy from allah sending so many muslims to us making it easier to islamize europe"

    Out of curiosity, could you expand on this a bit and describe a bit what you wanted and what you thought it would look like?

    "But racism and islamophobia are not okay. "

    Ok, hold on a second.  I have seen this covered elsewhere, but the two concepts are not synonymous.  There are many islamic apologists who try to equate the two, but they are different.

    Racism would be hating people from muslim countries or those with muslim faith.

    "islamophobia" literally means "fear of islam."  It is rational to be afraid of an ideology if that ideology contains harmful morality that would cause people to inflict suffering or oppression on others.

    Fear of islam is not the same thing as hating or being afraid of every person who is a muslim.  I think you can separate the people from the ideology and the potential harm it causes.

    To use an a analogy (and it's just an analogy, i am NOT saying islam is like national socialism)

    You could have been "Nazi-phobic" during World War 2 without being racist against Germans and Japanese.

    This is an important distinction, and both sides get it wrong.  The imams and apologists who claim islam is above criticism, and the racists who think people from mulsim backgrounds are "bad people."

    IMO the real victim of 'hate' isn't the man or woman who has been physically harmed by some lunatic. That one's just the victim of a crime. Which isn't fun, and is dangerous, but s/he's still in command of his/her own soul.

    The real victim of 'hate' is the hater. That's the person whose mind is broken. That's the person I don't want to turn into. That murderer in Portland - who was a Bernie voter - is an excellent example.

    As far as 'Islamophobia' goes, recognising that Islam (in its current state) has some serious flaws, and speaking out against them in a debate setting, is fine. Shouting at random Muslims... just, no.

    You know what your problem is, you are still an extremist and bigot even as a secular.You may have left Islam and stop believing in it but you haven't shed off your extreme tendencies and bigotry yet and develop an understanding of nuances and complexities of this life. The ironic thing of it is that you are the same as those muslim extremist  because you got one thing in common with them; Hatred.



    I hear a lot of people say islam isn't a race so its not racism.


    This has become one of my pet peeves when people say that.

    Arson or physical assault. A fear of an ideology or religion does not give one license to commit otherwise violent acts against individuals who believe in that religion.  This is simplistic thinking that islamist apologists use, that islam ahould be immune to criticism or opposition because such will inevitably lead to violence against individuals of the faith or is the equivalent.

    This is like arguing that one should not criticize Trump, because it gives license to AntiFA types to attack Trump supporters or conservatives in general.

    I agree, islam shouldn't be immune to criticism. however, when muslims are physically attacked for their beliefs,  should we just call it physical assault or battery and lump it in with your every day bar brawl/football match violence? that would be shoddy data collection. Its a hate crime specifically against muslims. I think we need a word for it.

    I'd never thought of the hater as a victim. In a way they are both victims. I think I'd like to see the perpetrator of such crimes go through some kind of muslim awareness course or maybe experience living with a muslim family for a while (i'm stretching it a bit I know!) rather than a jail term. (not aware of the Portland murder - will look it up)

    I disagree.  A "muslim awareness" course seems like indoctrination.  The person is free to have their opinions and even their prejudices.   The action is the crime, and the punishment should be the same regardless of the motive (with some exceptions, like if a man steals to feed his starving family, but not for things like assault or arson)

    Any 'phobia' by definition is an irrational fear.  So the label applied indiscriminately and reflexively by Muslim apologists to critics of Islam is well chosen on their part.  Instead of addressing the criticisms and concerns ... attack and discredit the messenger.

    The physical assaults on Muslims are completely indefensible and I have to admit there are scary extremist people, who for the most part are white men (some blacks too) who generally assault Muslim women rather than Muslim men .. so they are cowards too.   But I agree with one of the posts above that says the law should only concern itself with actions, not thoughts.   Assault is a crime.   Assault on someone due to hatred of their ethnicity or religion or sexual orientation is in most Western countries also a hate crime - carrying higher legal penalties that plain assault.   That should be enough ... shouldn't it?

    Its not their opinions or their prejudices so their freedom of thought is an illusion. They're already indoctrinated by the media.

    Their opinions are mostly what the media tells them to think. These thoughts fester in their simple brains. (A brain which probably has never had an original thought in its entire life). The attack on the muslim is a direct result of the thought. An education in the diversity and practices of ordinary everyday muslims would be more useful than a jail sentence. If they are sent to jail the resentment grows and they will continue their behaviour once released. Its a never ending cycle.

    Well, this gets into the whole question of agency.  I don't buy into the notion that a person doesn't have agency because of the information they have been exposed to.  Everyone has different experiences and knowledge and will act according to such. Otherwise, I could make a case that only committed rationalists are truly free to act, since they make a conscious effort to be aware of and reject hueristic thinking.  But heuristic thinking is human nature, and being rational is actually quite diifuclt and takes effort.

    Furthermore, if the person doesn't have agency, you can't hold them responsible.  Both the person who commits a hate crime and the jihadist terrorrist may be "brainwashed", but I would hold both ethically responsible for their actions.

    well  on those words "I develop Islamophobia"., US of A Boston city    launches poster campaign to combat Islamophobia. Here is the way to do it

    Quote
    Seeking to bolster its reputation of being inclusive, the city of Boston will post 50 signs aimed at diffusing Islamophobia.

    The public service announcement campaign was announced Monday by Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s office, and comes after San Francisco’s Bay Area Rapid Transit system did something similar.

    Starting Monday, the posters will be placed throughout Boston on public furniture — such as bus stops — over the next two weeks.

    “These posters are one tool we have to send the message that all are welcome in Boston,” Walsh said in a statement. “Education is key to fighting intolerance, and these posters share a simple strategy for engaging with those around you.”


    that and more you can read at that link but let me put those educational cartoons here..
    ******************************************************************************


    *********************************************************************************

    apparently those cartoon posters were  designed by the artist known as Maeril, gained popularity online after the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris.  .,  it says
    Quote
    They give a step-by-step guide to diffusing situations where someone may be facing Islamophobia — or any other type of harassment — by encouraging bystanders to start up a conversation with those who are being targeted, and to ignore the person who is carrying out the harassment.

    “This campaign is designed to encourage de-escalation, offering a peaceful way to address harassment that bystanders may witness in public,” said Faisa Sharif, a neighborhood liaison within the mayor’s civic engagement cabinet. “This is a proactive, inclusive strategy anyone can use if they see harassment around them, and is another way Boston supports an inclusive city that welcomes each and every person.” ..

     well that is a good thing to support  each and every person of any city .. and it should be done all over the globe ... I certainly agree and fully support in engaging in conversation with a person who happened to get harassed by fools in such places as bus stops, buses or restaurants  but  the cartoon  victim need not be  Muslim lady.,  it could be any one in any country any culture
