Reflections on Islam: Go Ask The Imams!

The Chief Rabbi of England, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, is a wise and sensitive man. Yet his public statements both past and present, all too often perpetuate the mythology that “authentic Islam” rejects the version exhibited by ISIS savages. This mirrors the politically correct narrative of Islam being an enlightened monotheistic faith, which contributed to philosophy, science, and the arts.

  • That looks like a pretty long definition of “Islamophobia” — heavily engineered. Usually dictionary definitions are brief and to the point:

    e.g. Islamophobia: irrational fear of Islam; irrational fear of Muslims

    Ironically, the only people who have an irrational fear of Islam are the people who call everything “Islamophobia” — for example if someone dares to criticize Islam then it’s called Islamophobia. Totally irrational, as well as illogical, because if someone criticizes Islam then it’s obvious they aren’t afraid of it. It’s the people who are afraid to criticize Islam who obviously have an irrational fear of it.

    What we see almost daily around the world, be it Paris, Thailand or any where else, is authentic Islam.

    Jonathan Sacks has not been Chief Rabbi for 18 months…it is now Ephraim Mirvis!
