The relentless propaganda barrage continues: it is so contrary to reality that it can only be shored up by constant repetition. “Islamophobia” is used to refer to vigilante attacks against innocent Muslims. Those are never justified. But it is also used to refer to analysis of how jihadis use the texts of Islam to justify violence. Thus it inhibits honest study of the jihad threat and intimidates people into thinking that there is something wrong with countering that threat.
“BBC Targets Kids with Fake ‘Islam Means Peace’ Claim Following Finsbury Park Attack,” by Raheem Kassam, Breitbart, June 19, 2017:
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has published a story entitled “What is Islamophobia?” containing misleading information such as the common trope that “Islam means peace”.
Published just hours after the terrorist attack outside Finsbury Park mosque, the BBC’s article is hosted on their CBBC (Children’s BBC) website. It begins: “Following recent events in the news you might have been hearing a lot about Islam and maybe the term ‘Islamophobia’ – but what does this mean?”
Islam is over 1,400 years old, dating back to the 7th Century.
The Islamic word for God is Allah.
The word “Islam” comes from an old Arabic word meaning “peace.”
In reality, the word “Islam” actually means “submission”, implying submission to Allah.
There has been a broader discussion on the matter in recent years, but while “Salam” means welcome or peace, the root of the word Islam is grounded in the idea of submission to Allah.
This has been confirmed by a number of Quranic scholars, as well as Muslims on the Ummah Forum website.
One writes: “i would sum it up as, islam means submission, one who submits is a muslim, and submission to Allah will bring peace to your heart insha Allah.”
Even Britain’s most notorious Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary concurred, in an interview with CBN:
“You can’t say that Islam is a religion of peace,” Choudary told CBN News. “Because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. So the Muslim is one who submits. There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam.”
CBBC adds, with no evidence: “…many people say those terrorist groups have extreme beliefs of hatred and violence that have little to do with what most Muslims believe.”
In reality, vast numbers of Muslims, even in the Western world, hold anti-Western views and ideals that fit well with the modus operandi of terrorist groups.
While indeed there is some anti-Muslim discrimination all around the world, pro-Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups created and seized upon the word Islamophobia in order to promote the ideas of fitna and fasad: effectively the idea of standing in the way of the spread of Islam.
Quran 2:191 commands: “And kill [the unbelievers] wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.”
Quran 5:32 says: “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”…
