And Some Call it “Islamophobia”

Perhaps just as revealing as what the media reports are the stories that it refuses to report. Sometimes, the media is cowered into silence by charges of “Islamophobia.” (Once in a while, the media will courageously take a stand.)

This tendency is most clearly demonstrated by the medias’ refusal to acknowledge the extent of the Muslim genocide of Christians - Nigeria, Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan are most newsworthy.

One step down from this is the reluctance of Western Europe to report on the explosion of Anti-Semitism within their midst. Wikipedia reports:

  • Antisemitism has increased significantly in Europe since 2000, with significant increases in verbal attacks against Jews and vandalism such as graffiti, fire bombings of Jewish schools, desecration of synagogues and cemeteries. Those incidents took place not only in France and Germany, where antisemitic incidents are the highest in Europe but also in counties like Belgium, Austria and the United Kingdom. In those countries, physical assaults against Jews including beatings, stabbings and other violence, increased markedly, in a number of cases resulting in serious injury and even death. Moreover, the Netherlands and Sweden have also had consistently high rates of antisemitic attacks since 2000….A large number of violent antisemitic attacks in Europe were done by Muslims. 
These Muslim attacks have also received encouragement from their host nations that routinely accuse Israel of crimes against the Palestinians. Even more recently, it is reported that:

  • Although the full study is not due to be released until October, the salient facts have been summarized by EU officials and by researchers like Dov Maimon, a French-born Israeli scholar at the Jewish People Policy Institute in Jerusalem. Among the findings: more than one in four Jews report experiencing anti-Semitic harassment at least once in the twelve months preceding the survey; one in three have experienced such harassment over the past five years; just under one in ten have experienced a physical attack or threat in the same period; and between two-fifths and one-half in France, Belgium, and Hungary have considered emigrating because they feel unsafe. Statistics from my native France, home to the largest Jewish community in Europe, go back farther in time and tell an even darker tale. Since 2000, 7,650 anti-Semitic incidents have been reliably reported to the Jewish Community Security Service and the French ministry of the interior; this figure omits incidents known to have occurred but unreported to the police. 
The Jews are not just considering emigration, they are actually in flight and in droves. Surprisingly, I could not find any stats detailing the extent of Jewish emigration from Western Europe. However, in an article dated March 14, 2013, the Tablet Magazine gave some indication of the extent of French Jewishemigration:

  • A few weeks ago, an article chronicled the growth of a French Jewish community in the United Kingdom. To accommodate the influx, St. John’s Wood Synagogue in London started hosting French-language Shabbat services. Here’s one about the French Jews arriving in Israel at a rate of 2,000 per year. 
This is human suffering of immense and ongoing proportions, and the media is largely ignoring it along with the Western governments, which seem to be more interested in ensuring that everyone has access to condoms. Even Jewish groups are hardly raising a whisper.

Perhaps Islam does constitute a threat that needs to be identified. However, this is the very thing that the West is trying to prevent. Currently, France is bringing criminal charges against a journalist for questioning Islam.

However, if Islam is bent on imposing Shariah Law wherever it goes, thereby either subjugating or killing everyone else, as many Koranic verses actually require, then this must be confronted. As the situation now stands, it’s like trying to counteract the bubonic plague without first being allowed to identify the problem.
