Islamophobia is a myth…

Last week, in the editorial offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo, Islamic terrorists echoed President Obama’s 2012 message to the United Nations that, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

The drama, which played out on live TV and social media, began with brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi methodically massacring 12 individuals before stopping to shoot an unarmed, wounded police officer in the head and then escaping by car. And while these deviants have now been located and killed, their mission was a success.


In fairness to the president’s remarks, Obama went on to say, “Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.”

But that simply isn’t the case in America. The progressive voices propagating the bigotry of “Islamophobia” as slander against Allah are the same voices championing the blasphemous “art” of such artists as Andres Serrano, whose 1987 photo depicted a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine. The piece received a visual art award in a National Endowment of the Arts competition sponsored in part by your tax dollars.


While there may be some who’ve become “Islamophobic” due to the reality of Islamic extremism, the bigotry of “Christianophobia” is widely accepted as part of the progressive movement to remove God from our society. And it’s the epitome of hypocrisy for liberals to rise after such attacks as the one in Paris to wave a banner protecting the Muslim religion while charging the complexion of Christianity violates their First Amendment Rights.

It would seem liberals are selective with their bigotry.

Even before the bodies of the dead French cartoonists had been removed from the scene of the slaughter, Muslim apologists were proactively taking to their cameras and keyboards to ensure political correctness with regard to Americans associating such Islamic terrorist attacks with the “peaceful” Muslim religion.


But facts are facts. A website called “The Religion of Peace,” a non-partisan site concerned with Islam’s true political and religious teachings according to the Quran, reveals that somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack every five hours. The website documents more than 20,000 religion-oriented attacks since 9/11 in which someone has died at the hand of a member of the “religion of peace.”

The site explains the Quran has at least 109 verses that “call Muslims to war with non-believers for the sake of Islamic rule.” Many of these are quite graphic, with commands to “chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.”

When was the last time you heard of a terrorist attack in the name of Hinduism, Buddhism or Christianity? Have you ever heard a liberal cry “Christianophobia”?

Americans are cognizant of radical Islam not because they have a phobia of the Muslim faith. Some are simply wise enough to understand which faith values their belief over the lives of those who don’t.
