Does not believing in God, heaven or hell make you an Islamophobe?

September 15, 2007

Probably according to Islamophobia Watch who’d spin this as “yet more evidence that more people hate Islam”.

Rise in militant atheism related to fear of Islam, NSS admits

More than three out of four people in the world consider themselves religious, and those with no faith are a distinct minority. But especially in richer nations, and nowhere more than in Europe, growing numbers of people are actively saying they don’t believe there is a heaven or a hell or anything other than this life.

Many analysts trace the rise of what some are calling the “nonreligious movement” to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The sight of religious fanatics killing 3,000 people caused many to begin questioning – and rejecting – all religion.

“This is overwhelmingly the topic of the moment,” said Terry Sanderson, president of the National Secular Society of Britain. “Religion in this country was very quiet until September 11, and now it is at the center of everything.”

Since the 2001 attacks, a string of religiously inspired bomb and murder plots has shaken Europe. Muslim radicals killed 52 people on the London public transit system in 2005 and 191 on Madrid trains in 2004. People apparently aiming for a reward in heaven were arrested in Britain last year for trying to blow up transatlantic jetliners. And earlier this month in Germany, authorities arrested converts to Islam on charges that they planned to blow up American facilities there.

Many Europeans are angry at demands to use taxpayer money to accommodate Islam, Europe’s fastest-growing religion, which now has as many as 20 million followers on the continent. Along with calls for prayer rooms in police stations, foot baths in public places and funding for Islamic schools and mosques, expensive legal battles have broken out over the niqab, the Muslim veil that covers all but the eyes, which some devout women seek to wear in classrooms and court.

So basically more people are atheist because of a “fear” of Islam? In other words more people are atheist because of “Islamophobia”.

We don’t believe in God, heaven, hell or an afterlife so we must be stinking Muslim racist BNP lovers then. Lol!

Presuambly Islamophobia Watch would advocate everybody being forced to belief in some religion in order to stop them being “racist”.

IW doesn’t like atheism or athiests much and believe that those who don’t believe in religion are “Islamophobes”.

Libraries stocking Islamic terror books…it can’t be true and it’s all made up by racist Islamophobes!!!

Report: Libraries stock Islamic terror books

Hate%20on%20the%20State.jpg“Public libraries are stocking hundreds of Islamic books by advocates of ‘holy war’, with many glorifying acts of terrorism, a new report claims…. An investigation by a leading think-tank found extremist literature at six libraries, three in the London area, two in the Midlands and one in the North….

“In the report, Hate on the State, published by the think-tanks Vigil and the Centre for Social Cohesion, the authors warn that some libraries have become ‘saturated with extreme Islamist books’…. authors on the shelves include Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, and Sayyid Qutb, a major influence on Osama bin Laden.

“Inayat Bunglawala, a spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain and a Government adviser, said: ‘These are authors who are widely read in the Muslim world and it is not surprising that they are stocked in areas where there happens to be the highest concentration of Muslims. It does not necessarily mean you agree with them, it is part of a free society’.”

Hate on the State can be downloaded (pdf) here

BBC Newsnight devoted a large chunk of last night’s programme to promoting the report, assisted by Ed “Lock ’em up” Husain and Haras Rafiq of the neoconservative (and largely non-existent) Sufi Muslim Council.

If it was reported that some libraries were stocking pro Nazi books or books which sympathised with racists like the BNP the Islamophobia watchers would take it as red that it was true!

Whenever it’s reported that some Muslims are saying hateful things the Islamophobia watchers claim they’ve been “set up” by the racist Muslim hating media!

Inyat Bunglawala talks about free society. Would he would be talking about a free society when reacting to reports of libraries stocking books which advocated violence against Muslims? Quite right he wouldn’t so why the double standards?

“It doesn’t neccesarily mean you agree with them.” Ok then and skinheads with twastika tatooes on their arms reading pro Nazi Hitler loving books doesn’t mean they agree with them!

Lol!

Hate crime hate crime there always so much hate crime!

September 3, 2007

The scum bags responsible must be brought to justice. But Islamophobia Watch report this in order to give more credence to their “Britain is full of racist Muslim haters!” agenda.

Hate crime yobs target Muslims

Revolting thugs urinated on to shoes and clothes belonging to worshipping Muslims. Police are treating the incident as a hate crime against Bath’s Muslim community and say they are determined to track down the perpetrators. The two male offenders entered the lobby of the Bath Islamic Centre in Pierrepont Street during evening prayers, before urinating on clothing and shoes left in the entrance by worshippers. Their mindless vandalism has disgusted members of the mosque and left the belongings of five people damaged.

Imam Rashad Amazi, a leader at the Bath Islamic Centre, said the victims were disgusted by the crime. He said: “They felt disbelief and they were horrified. While they were doing their prayers they heard very loud shouting inside the building. They couldn’t break their prayers but they were terrified. As soon as they’d finished, they ran to the ground floor where they thought the shouting was coming from. By that time the people had left. They smelled the alcohol and the urine and then found there was urine in their shoes and on the carpets.”

Rosco Jones, from Bath and North East Somerset Racial Equality Council, said he was concerned that other victims of hate crime were keeping quiet about their experiences in an effort to evade more attention. He said: “The main concern is that not as many victims of hate crime resulting from the heightened concerns around Islamic-based terrorism are coming forward to say they’ve been attacked. People on the whole are just keeping the information to themselves. That is quite bad. The police and authorities such as ourselves need to be aware so we can take normal community safety preventative action.”
