The radio – Radio National, Australia – is full of hysterical talk about ‘Islamophobia’ in the wake of the killings in New Zealand where some nutter blew up a Mosque, I think.
So they seek the origins of ‘Islamophobia’. They look for someone, something to blame.
Madness. Has all reason been declared out of bounds? The western world has gone completely nuts. According to what I read in the columns of Takimag, the online magazine, for instance. And numerous other places you get the same total irrationality reported.
The origins of Islamophobia are in thousands of Islamists cutting the heads off innocent people in public. The origins of Islamophobia are in the deaths of thousands of innocent people by terrorist attacks by Islamic groups.
Pointless to labour the point. One does. One tries to lay out point after point after point, proof after proof after proof, example after example….
But it is pointless. Those with rationality and eyes to see, ears to hear, see and hear quickly. The rest never will. Never. They’re coming from some other angle, some other logic, some other headspace, some other world.
The origins of Islamophobia are in Islam.
In the actions of those who profess the religion.
In what the writings of the religion turn out to be on investigation.
In the overt manifestations of the religion: shrouding women in black, making them slaves.
In the representation of Islam presented by Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia.
There’s the origins of Islamophobia.
It should be used as a sanity check. An intelligence test or something.
Those who cannot see it are mad, deficient in some way.
