Racism in the Islamic Countries

Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?

Submitted by F. Shakki (United States), Nov 26, 2005 at 11:42

Racism is known very well in all the Islamic countries.
The Muslims cannot tolerate the existing of other people with different religion.
That is why you can see the population of the non-Moslems in the Islamic countries is disappearing.
These Moslems countries do the persecution quietly through their unofficial and official instructions to destroy and kill and commit crimes against the non Moslems and the police and authority do not interfere to prevent these acts.
This is a real racism.

Unfortunately, the USA does not see what is happening in the Moslems countries as racism. USA interferes to protect the terrorists in Kosvo but does not interfere to protect the nonmoslims populations in any Islamic countries. Even in Iraq where the American army is there, the churches are burned and the Christians are leaving the countries to save their lives. Here is what was written in one of the newspaper in here about Egypt and Palestinians.

"Egypt is a country where anti-Semitic and anti-Christian books are sold freely on the sidewalks in the streets, where hate mongers write freely in its press, where mosques call Jews the descendants of Apes and Pigs, where national TV and Radio stations often broadcast hate filled materials promoting hostility against Christians, Jews and the USA as well, Al Ahram itself is a newspaper that publishes anti-Christian writings such as those of Zaghloul Annajar, an Islamic scholar and researcher who claimed the Tsunami disaster was a result of Allah's wrath and America's nuclear testing in the region, Annajar also called Jews sons of apes and pigs in many of his articles. Despite all that, the Al Ahram newspaper never for once criticized anti-Semitism nor anti-Coptic rhetoric in the Egyptian media.

And despite the presence of many Islamic satellite channels in the region such as Iraq's, which was permitted to operate freely even though it promotes anti-Semitism ", yet the mere presence of a Coptic channel is considered a sin and a challenge to the sick mentality of the news paper Al Ahram's racist and hate-promoting reporters. This Islamic news paper said we as Copts should never think to have our own channels, we should submit and pay Jizzya with willing subdue! How dare we think of having our own channel?

Let's see how they think of the channel:

Quote: "The timing of the channel's launch has also contributed to the controversy surrounding it. It began broadcasting less than a month after sectarian tension in Alexandria over a church play that was deemed offensive by Muslims resulted in clashes that killed three and injured hundreds." End quote

Even though the process of establishing the channel started over 4 years ago, and has no relevance to the recent attacks of Muslim mobs on the Coptic church in Alexandria, yet to the sick minds of Al Ahram, it's always a conspiracy; the non-Muslims are always conspiring against the Muslims (for what reason?) according to the report.

It is worthy to mention that Al Ahram, which was established by two Christians in the 19th century, is now a newspaper that discriminates against Christians; it is almost void of any Coptic reporters or columnists!"

"The Plight of Palestinian Christians
Christians have shrunk to less than 1.7 percent of the population in the Palestinian areas. "Tens of thousands have abandoned their holy sites and ancestral properties to live abroad, while those who remain do so as a beleaguered and dwindling minority,"

"Their plight is, in part, attributable to the adoption of Muslim religious law (sharia) in the constitution of the Palestinian Authority.

The radicalization of Palestinian Muslim communities under the PA is becoming an increasingly dangerous threat to Christian communities, to individuals, and to the mode of life they practice. The reversion to archaic and fundamentalist ideology advocated by Islamists, aggravated by economic and social hardship experienced by Middle Eastern societies in recent years, has been an instrumental force that has not only affected life for those who continue to reside in the Middle East but also directly caused high emigration rates among Middle Eastern Christians.

Not only is the Palestinian Christian community facing an existential threat, but, even more significantly, their status as a persecuted minority is ignored by the international community."
