Covert Hostility

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by Day Vid In Calcutta (United States), Oct 25, 2005 at 16:29

The charge of "Islamophobia" is a tactic utilized by those actors to dissuade their potential victims from protecting themselves so that they might have an easier strike. It is a false cry of "we won't hurt you" - "you overreact, we are really nice guys" - yet their leaders openly state and make their followers chant, creating a mental circuit btw, of "death to America" "death to Jews" "death to anyone who is not like us!" These people are plying a philosophy of conquest under the cover of religion - their philosophy says that "Allah" commands them to act this way therefore they cannot ever be RESPONSIBLE - Their general emotional expression is either OVERT HOSTILITY or, if in an area where others might prevent them from attacking, they slip down the line into an emotional attitude of COVERT HOSTILITY - This emotional band is the MOST DECEPTIVE AND THE MOST DANGEROUS - Our "media" people and politicians fall for it nearly every time.

The general attitude is one of "Everything must die but me (we)" - while we, Westerners, in general, religious or not, have the MORE SANE attitude "We want everyone to live" and we will only destroy (kill) in order to PROTECT our lives. Islamists destroy and threaten to destroy in order to make others 'heel' to submission. Islam appears to be used as a method of control - for if you can locate somebody's body in time and space ("pray," "face this direction," "five times a day...") then the mechanics of other aspects and behavior control are just a short ways away, it's a low level of hypnotism. Think about this next time you are out "protesting" and "chanting."

Those may be considered some tough words, and they may be omitted, but as I see it, this is what is and needs to be confronted.

I am afraid to write things like this for I know what these people can do, their biggest victims are their poor underling practictioners - they are AFRAID TO SAY "STOP THIS MADNESS"!
