It’s Not ‘Islamophobic’ to ‘Discuss Islam as a Set of Ideas’

U.S. leaders should learn the history and motivations behind Islam in order to defeat radicalized terrorists, human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali told an audience of conservative activists.

“To discuss Islam as a set of ideas does not make you a racist. It doesn’t make you Islamophobic,” Ali said to cheers Friday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC. “If we want to name the enemy and understand the threat, then … we the people have to educate ourselves on exactly what the threat is.”

    Fighting Islam.

    A nominal Muslim is more likely to give birth to a Jihadi than a Counter-Jihadi, and thus does represent an existential threat (a threat to our very existence) in the long term. So long as they refer to themselves as Muslim they will consult the immutably evil texts of Islam and think that it is good not evil. Demand no less than open profession of apostasy.

    People need to recognise that there is no such thing as “islamophobia” and refuse to buy into the lie. This certainly applies to all politicians.

      A mathphobe is equally offended(tm) that two plus two equals four or ten plus ten equals one hundred.

        That’s ten times ten equals one hundred.

          It was a test. Think binary.

    Just what I’ve been saying. And there’s 1.3 billion of them. We’ve got our work cut out for us.

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali is awesome. So glad they had her at CPAC. She needs to be heard. By everyone.
