UK former equity chief warns: “Islamophobia” is a “bullies charter” used by “censorious Muslims”
Saturday, June 29, 2019
Jihad Watch : In mid-May, the UK government refused “to adopt a working definition of ‘Islamophobia’
proposed by an all-party Parliamentary group”. The definition put
forward determined that “Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type
of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived
Britain’s former equality tsar Trevor Phillips OBE has warned the sweeping new definition of “Islamophobia” is a “bullies’ charter” for Muslims inclined to censor criticism of Islam and Islamic practices.
Phillips, a former Labour politician and son of African-heritage
migrants from British Guiana — now Guyana — who served as head of the
Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) quango and the Equality and Human
Rights Commission (EHRC) which succeeded it from 2003 to 2012, warned
that the definition would “make it illegitimate to criticise anyone who
uses the fact that they are a Muslim or defending Muslims to make it
impossible to contest their point of view”.
The definition of “Islamophobia” was endorsed by London mayor Sadiq Khan, who Donald Trump recently called a “stone cold loser“.
Trump’s description had nothing to do with Khan being a Muslim, which
as usual, Trump was presented to be “racist” for his accurate
description of Khan. Under Khan’s leadership, London has morphed into a crime den,
where Somalian parents are now sending their kids back to Somalia to
avoid knife crime and where acid attacks have terrified the city, the
most recent acid attack was on three people in two separate incidents by two people hidden under burqas.
The “Islamophobia” canard aims to shut down all criticism of Islam
and offense to Muslims while shielding the human rights abuses by
Muslims against unbelievers. “Islamophobia” instead paints Muslims as
the victims, enabling their supremacy over disbelievers. All other
religions and ideologies can be criticized but Islam. This sets the
Sharia above democratic rights and freedoms.
Not enough people question
why more Muslims do not advocate for real victims and condemn their
fellow coreligionists for widespread abuses instead of screaming the loathsome term
“Islamophobia”. Instead, Muslim advocacy groups and leaders blame
everyone else for their 1400 year aggression. Trever Phillips warned
that “Islamophobia'” is the foundation of a bully’s charter and
