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.
