Our dear Mr Maszka is no longer talking about the bogus word "Islamophobia" I wonder why!

>We can find examples of violence in the sacred writings of most world religions,

Really? Can you provide us with a reference about let us say terrorizing non Jains (See Q8:60) in the holy books of let us say Jains? I will be waiting

Dear Readers: Prof Mark Lilla wrote an article in the Op-Ed page of the NYC a few days after the 9/11 atrocity committed by Muslim terrorists in the name of Islam and his conclusion is: There must be doctrines in Islam that allow such violence. It is for Muslims to identify them and confront them and fix the problems of terrorism inspired by their sacred books

You need to read it our dear Mr Maszka!

>and we can also find examples of misguided people throughout history who used those texts to justify committing acts of violence. This in no way implicates the billions of adherents to the world's great religions who do not employ violence. No one is denying that violent extremism (of all stripes) is problematic. However violent Islamic extremists comprise a minuscule percentage of the total Muslim population, and they interpret Islam's sacred writings in a way that justifies violence. This is not a strictly Muslim phenomenon, nor is it a strictly modern one.

Again a "minuscule" number of Muslims, the 19 terrorists, led to the murder of thousands on innocent human beings and the health problems that many now face from exposure to very polluted air at the site of the twin towers in New York City. You do not even care about the victims of the 9/11 atrocity. Absolute shame.

>As for the etymology of the term "Islamophobia," no one (that I'm aware of) is credited with coining the term. However, it was used in colonial times to criticize the treatment of Muslims in the French colonies (Islamophie) and more recently compared to antisemitism by Edward Said in 1985.

Did we ask you to tell us what is the etymology of the bogus word "Islamophobia"? Hint: we did not. In my case all I said to you it is a word invented by fascists, propagated by cowards to manipulate morons

Learn to not use slogans. Learn to refute ideas Do you get it?

If you want to help Muslims then tell them the truth that Islam has doctrines that lead to violence against non Muslims. Example: Millions of Hindus were murdered enslaved and raped by the Muslim invaders of India and Buddhism in India was destroyed by the Muslim invaders!

May be direct your energy to help non Muslim minorities in the Middle East persecuted by Muslims and Islam the likes of the Yazidis and Christian Arabs. And support women in Iran that want to get rid of the hijab.
