Tunisian Salafi Islamists attend a rally in the central town of Kairouan

Islamophobia a growing problem in US, EU, says poet

Marchs for peace are rare in the Muslim world. Rage boys are not.

Islamophobia is a long-established and growing problem in the U.S. and EU and Muslims are being intentionally discriminated against, the poet and writer Roni Margulies has said.

Referring to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York, U.S. which left thousands of people dead, Margulies told the Anadolu Agency: “Of course this (Islamophobia) became more loud after the attack on the twin towers”…

…The writer said that Islamophobia was a problem not only for Muslims but for people who protested against racism.

He said that, despite open racism not being something that is welcomed generally, the U.S. and EU were to blame for growing Islamophobia through their policies.

Margulies said a very big difference in the value of the life of a European and someone from the Middle East was clear to see.

Referring to the fatal attack on staff at the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Jan. 7, he said: “Of course, attacking a magazine and killing the journalists and caricaturists is an unacceptable thing.”

But he added: “Nobody speaks a single word if five people die in the Middle East or in Muslim, Arab countries”…

Keep in mind that Anadolu Agency is run by the Turkish government.

As for the poet’s whining, it was the people in France who made a fuss of their citizens. Do I see Arabs marching in streets and demanding that the killing in Syria stop? No, I don’t. Not in any country.  Just more leftist crap.

    Christian/Judeo/Infidelphobia is the real problem, and its got legs.

      Or as I call it, kuffarphobia. Should’ve tagged the post.

  • He’s right. No one says anything when Muslims kill other Muslims or when their suffering is ignored by other Muslims, as well.

      I thinks it’s related to the tribe/clan thing. You care about your close kin and no one else, for the most part. If outsiders attack, then alliances are built, but the only real solid constant is the clan.

      It’s amazing how the social experiment carried out the medieval Christian clerics to destroy the clans by forbidding cousin marriage transformed our society.

      Much the same as black on black crime in the U.S.

      • Indeed.

        Now let us have no more talk about this bizarre cover-up.

    Were there really such a thing as “islamophobia” and it were so terrible, Muslims living in non Muslim countries would be routinely rounded up and deported while ensuring no further Muslim immigrants/refugees. However there have been no pogroms against them nor any mass attacks them and their establishments in the West. Frankly it is well time for a bit of “islamophobia” before it is too late.

      None that I know of ever said it better than the late Lawrence Auster. Separationism. Humane, decent, and an absolute necessity, but impossible because it wouldn’t be “nice”.
