There is no such thing as Islamophobia....

Whenever the Muslim countries need redress, they know where to turn...the UN!
Muslim states said on Wednesday that what they call “Islamophobia” is sweeping the West and its media and demanded that the United Nations take tougher action against it.

Delegates from Islamic countries, including Pakistan and Egypt, told the United Nations Human Rights Council that treatment of Muslims in Western countries amounted to racism and discrimination and must be fought.

“People of Arab origin face new forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related forms of intolerance and experience discrimination and marginalization,” an Egyptian delegate said, according to a U.N. summary.

And Pakistan, speaking for the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), said the council’s special investigator into religious freedom should look into such racism “especially in Western societies”.

Muslims say everyone is islamaphobic, the jews say everyone is anti-semitic, the Church of England say there is a wave of anti-Christianity across Europe. Religion, bah humbug.

And if the west IS "Islamophobic", who the hell do you think is to blame? Perhaps if the "peaceful" Muslims turned their scorn on the REAL source of the problem - their "brothers" blowing themselves and other stuff up - things might change. The UN is useless and will do nothing for the cause.

I've always maintained that the only thing that will truly stop Islamic terrorists once and for all is OTHER MUSLIMS who grow weary of dealing with their crap and either turn them in or shoot them.

Tolerance? How much tolerance of westerners is there in these Muslim nations? They should look at the recent numbers in Canada in hate crimes - hate crimes against Muslims are down and crimes against Jews are up!

Hanz, anti-semitism is exclusive from anti-Judaism, a distinction hard for many to comprehend. Islam is not a race, Judaism is not a race. Arabs are a race, Jews are a race. It's not hard.

How about this for a P.R. makeover: Stop blowing up innocent men, women and children in the name of Islam.

Civilized society can deal with a few radical nut-jobs here and there, what movement doesn't have a few of those? But thousands upon thousands of deaths, year after year, decade after decade? Not so much.
