All three are examples of Islamophobia as it exists. As for David Yerushalmi, none of the Muslims I talk to here in the US are pushing for Shariah over the Constitution. If you read his and other anti-Islamic people such as Geller and her partner...they want to make it a crime to be Muslim. Which violates the Constitution they say they wish to uphold. It's cl######ic hypocrisy.
The MSM (mainstream media...i.e. CNN, NBC, ABC, Fox News)...loves to trumpet stories that attack Islam. Anything that might possibly be terrorist-related, they come out and attack Islam, when oftentimes, there's a perfectly normal explanation without that. But do you see them apologize for demonizing a religion? No, I don't. To be fair, during Christmas and Easter they tend to attack Christianity too.
Whoa, that's too fast for me.
David Yerushalmi does not want Shariah in the US. So if no Muslims want Shariah in the US it is a non-issue. And this would be the unwarranted fear of Shariah, i.e. Shariahphobia or Sharobia
"Geller and her partner". I remember the name. Are these the crazy couple who are constantly drumming on about what a threat Islam is for society? Who went against the Masjid in New York? If I remember correctly, they call the people's attention to the violence in what Muslims are doing in the name of Islam and show what is being used to brainwash youths. Is that a phobia? I am not aware of any rants against individual Muslims - but I speak under correction here. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.
That is what news channels do. Report the news. And the more gory the better. So if no Muslim would cause any damage, what attack would they launch? Is there any unwarranted attention on Islam and Muslims in your opinion? I don't think that a person blowing themselves up has any "perfectly normal explanation". Is this a phobia? Not really.
Are the media "demonizing a religion"? Am I for "demonizing a religion"? No. A person can believe whatever they want. But remember that Islam is not just another religion. It is a system, a way of life and a worldview. With a religion promising eternal life in an afterlife. When Christians used to bash each other's heads in in Ireland and use terrorism and inhumane bombs the media was full of it. The same was true of the ANC in South Africa or ETA in Spain or RAF in Germany. So I don't see any unfair treatment of Islam in the media. And I would not call it a phobia either.
I was only ~70 meters away when a Muslim blew himself or herself up to knock down an entrance gate. I was only a few meters away when they came running into the hotel, screaming Allahu akbar, shooting everyone in sight. I ducked and got away. Is that reality or a phobia?
