Whining Muslims: ‘ISIS wouldn’t be here if there wasn’t Islamophobia’: What young British Muslims think about radicalisation

…I’m here to ask them about why they think some of their peers may want to go to Syria.

Islamophobia and the media representation of their community are quickly singled out as potential reasons: “I think this is the main problem,” one says.

“This country does not accept Islam for what it is. They’re stereotyping it.”

Another quite bluntly says: “ISIS wouldn’t be here if there wasn’t Islamophobia.”

“What’s the point of creating an extremist group if you don’t feel like you’re being attacked?”

They slowly delve a bit deeper to explain why, despite the universal experience of Islamophobia as they perceive it, only some young people want to go…

And ‘Islamophobia’ explains why there are Islamic State fighters from every Muslim country in the world. It also explains why non-Muslims convert just to joint IS. Logic fail. Major whine, pity party.

    The Via Rail jury is at a impasse my guess is the muslims will get off and sue billions saying its Islamophobia.

      ANY resistance to Islamization is called ‘Islamophobia’. Why?

      Muslims believed that merely by flaunting their paraphernalia (veils, turbans and kaftans) millions of Westerners would spontaneously flock to join the mosque. Westerners are ‘Islamophobic’ because they are resistant to conversion. So now they must be punished.

        Its not just that Christians are told your religion is wrong.

    • I think that is exactly what is going to happen.

    The Islamic State wouldn’t be anywhere if there was no Islam.

    “If Westerners say Islam is violent, Muslims must create ISIS to exterminate them.”
    Yup, that seems to be their argument.

    It’s just another in a long line of examples of, “Islam is a religion of peace and if you say otherwise I will kill you.” Something like this gets published in the MSM at least once a week now.

      I used to think Jeff Dunham was a hack for his Achmed the dead terrorist bit.
      I’ve since changed my mind.

      More like once a day. My Google alert on “Islamophobia” picked up a half a dozen whiny pieces like this. I couldn’t post them all. It’s getting worse. It used to be once a week, now it’s several per day.

    If moozies didn’t live in the western world, we’d have fewer problems about the dumb, dumb religion.

    “ISIS wouldn’t be here if there wasn’t Islamophobia.” Really??? REALLY???
    I guess 9-11 and all those other islamically-challenged terrorist attacks were all in my head.

  • So the reason why twelve year old girls are raped and churches are destroyed is because of the growing mistrust for a people who choose to alienate those in their community with the “g-d- infidel” talk.

    And then there’s that pesky September 11th thing.

      Which was retaliation for their loss in the battle of Vienna, Sept 11, 1683.

    As usual the twisted logic of islam. How can it be put simply so yer mooslim can understand?
    We don’t want your blood-soaked religion anywhere near our civilised society. If you want to live by 7th century rules dreamed up by a murderous paedophile, then go to a country that is run that way, but don’t expect us to roll over and allow you to impose your filthy ‘religion’ on us, beacause we won’t have it.
    Is that clear enough for you?

    Oh, the horror of resistance to Islamic conquest and oppression. It must stop – the resistance – immediately or I’ll get angry(er).

    (If you just accept the “truth” immediately and voluntarily then the worldwide Islamic State army would not need to convince you.)

    The writer attacks individual freedom and liberty as if is some sort of nothingness. Identity politics hates individuality.
