Qatari Sheikha Moza at Oxford University: Islamophobia ‘has devalued Muslims’ lives’

H H Sheikha Moza bint Nasser and architect Dame Zaha Hadid outside the Investcorp Building, a new extension of the Middle East Centre at St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford.

H H Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson, Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), yesterday delivered a keynote speech at the opening of Middle East Centre at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford.

She spoke about the current relationship between the Middle East and Europe and the growing “fear of real, living Muslims” in Europe and contrasted it with Europe’s curiosity and “respect for the vast and rich architectural, philosophical and historical traditions” of Islam.

She said “Muslim-phobia” had devalued Muslims’ lives in Europe and America and highlighted the double standard in applying principles of free speech, human rights and dignity.

“Why do Muslims lives matter less than the lives of others? If they matter at all”…

My, your Highness, if things are so bad in the UK, Muslims should seriously reconsider settling there.  

Oddly enough, they show no signs of preferring to stay home.

As for the ‘Islamophobia,’ does it ever occur to you that the treatment of non-Muslims by Muslims just might play a role here?  How well are non-Muslims treated in Qatar?

    perhaps if so many camel fornicators didn’t enthusiastically engage in aggressive acts of diversity people would hate them less.
    followers of the pedophile-in-chief are not special we hate every violent cult that attacks people because their crazy leader said to.

      The ‘removing the boulder from your own eye first’ seems to be applicable here, yes?
      I wonder how equal the genders are in Qatar?

        This whore should join ISIS as a sex slave.

          If she got anywhere near isis she wouldn’t have a choice. I read an article earlier where Qatar just forced migrant workers to run a megamarathon to support the FIFA event.

      In western terms, on which we agree, you are correct. In Islamic terms, the supremacist ideology of that cult, prefers us to cower. “Islamophobia” is detected the minute any free person exercises freedom from Islam, freely doing what Islam forbids, which riles the Muslim … so they can’t live their lives fully subjugating every non-Muslim at every turn.

      This is why we will soon enjoy the diversity of door-to-door war for there’s a little taste of Mogadishu now in every free nation.

        The media made-up word “islamophobia” means fear of islam. I don’t know anyone who is afraid of islam, only disgusted with it. It is a trigger word made up to justify the whinings of a vicious gang of brutal, hate-filled inbreds. This idiot word needs to be dumped from everyone’s, especially the media’s, vocabulary. And quit calling islam a religion because it’s not. Also, the proper term is not ISIS, or ISIL, those are compliments to the brutes. They should be referred to as daesh, or as the French prefer, daesh cutthroats.

    These facts are irrelevant she called pisslamophobia first, so your argument with facts doesn’t count…….

  • In other news, the Romulans have opened up a new cultural centre.

    Really! What’s up with those outfits?

    This is playing the typical victimhood card. Qatar has been using North Korean slave labour. Don’t tell me that doesn’t devalue the Korean people. Let’s talk about that:

      They’re terrible about exploiting foreign workers in Qatar.

      • But you know fair criticism about Islamism is just wrong.

    Screw Islam. The only moderate muslim is a dead one.

  • Islamophobia is a direct consequence of Muslim behavior. If you sow evil, expect to get it right back in your face.
