Professor Claims Antisemitism and ‘Islamophobia’ Are Equal Threats

Are “Islamophobia” and antisemitism comparable?

Reza Zia-Ebrahimi, a senior lecturer in history at King’s College London, maintains that the answer is yes. Zia-Ebrahimi recently made this argument in a talk co-sponsored by Harvard University’s Saudi-funded Alwaleed Islamic Studies Program. The speech was entitled, “When the Elders of Zion Relocated to Eurabia: Conspiratorial Racialisation in Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.”

No and Hell No.

    Somewhat related to the topic of Islamophobia – Ottawa is looking at restoring the online “hate speech” law that was rescinded by Harper. If they succeed anyone posting a comment online that is deemed “Islamophobia” can be hauled in front of a “Human Rights” tribunal and fined up to $10,000!

      They’d better not even think about it.

      The Human Rights Tribunal is precisely the opposite of what its name implies.
      It deprives the defendants of their human rights and there is no recourse to their unjust, biased judgements.
      They are a dirty stain on Canada’s system of justice.

    Eurabia? Here’s something from Wikipedia:

    “Eurabia” map of combined European Union current and prospective
    members, Switzerland and Norway (Schengen members); with Arab League
    member and observer states, as well as the State of Israel, the entirety of which territory is unofficially claimed by Palestine.
    I’d post the map they have, but for some reason this site won’t let me. It says I have to be logged in to upload an image and I am logged in through Disqus. I don’t know what else I’m supposed to log into.

      Take a photograph of the map and then treat it as any other picture. Just do not sell it for profit.

    More proof that “studies” is a canopy sheltering all manner of fakers, phonies and frauds.

    Islamophobia is a rational fear of Islam, the perpetrators, by the victims or possible victims.

    Anti Semitism is an irrational hatred of Jews , the victims, by the perpetrators.
