Out raged is the word that comes to mind but to the heart is humour. Well as far as religious propaganda goes this takes the top prize! you people must think were all a bit short of brain cells. Do you think that coming out with a few fancy and inaccurate facts will cause us to shiver with fear, because its obvious to me and the good Lord Jesus Christ that all your trying to do is create fear and that's the main pre-mace of Islam today. Dont ever forget the crusades let it be a reminder of what can happen if the influence of religion falls into the hands of evil men, that's what is happening to Islam today! It is not a religion its a cult Christianityis a way of life, the truth and the bible is the word of god, you have been deceived by the evil one. I Pray that our father blesses you with the holy spirit so that we may be reunited as brothers in the kingdom to come.

There is not enough in the so-called Holy Koran to under pin a religion of any kind Islam is was and always will be a POLITICAL ideolegy Muslims always bring up the Crusades here are a few truths about the Crusades
The first Crusade began in 1095, 460 years AFTER the first Christian city was overrun by Muslim armies.
457 years AFTER Jerusalem was coquered by the Muslims
443 years AFTER Muslims first plundered Italy
427 years AFTER Muslims laid seige to Constantinople
380 years AFTER Spain was conquered
363 years AFTER France was first attacked by Muslims and
249 years AFTER Rome was sacked by Muslims.
Do you notice anything about all these "attacks" other than they occured before the Crusades? No
Then I will tell you
At the time of these attacks all these places were CHRISTIAN and the Crusades were only started to protect christian pilgrims from being harrassed, killed or enslaved by Muslims. All Muslims aspire to be just like the perfect Muslim, Mohammed,
who lied, cheated and killed his way to power all this can be varified in the other two holy books of Islam, the Hadith and the Sira. So if the Prophet was a liar and all Muslims want to be like him I would not believe a word that any Muslim speaks. alTaqiyya = deceit (outright lies) Kitman = (lieing by ommision) each of these are practised by all Muslims, just ask an Muslim taxi driver what the Black cloth in the car means and see what he says then know the truth IT IS THE BLACK FLAG OF JIHAD or support for it

kuraneers killed and butchered pacific Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sicks, Buddists and so on communities in their own land under the order of muhammad, which himself was historically recorded as mass murder, paedophile (as he was known to have 9 years old "girlfriends" which constantly had sex with in his "temporary marriages") and so on. islamic followers have killed and force converted all the minorites in the middle east, people who didnt convert are still TODAY forced to pay massive tax bills in order to have the right to EXIST. By saying that, am I islamophobic? I didnt make history and never will, I just read it. And I am not talking in the name of any religion even If I am European, because I don't follow religion, I follow TRUTH. And the truth is that the entire whole world is witnessing constant attacks by islam, deadly attacks, everyday, anywhere. Am I islamophobic? Do something good for the peace of everyone, if you consider myself islamophobic don't blame me, blame the kuran and his more than 500 hate verses in it.
For me islam is not a religion but a political ideology. So let's stop the islamic inquisition as our ancestors did stop the catholic one..

Islamophobia and Arabophobia has been part of western culture since the Crusades, with Saddam and Osama only the latest in a long line of Arab bogeymen. The real reason for the current spate of Islamophobia is the fact that Islam has been the fastest growing religion in the world and as such poses a threat to the West. This is happening inspite of widespread misconceptions and negative media portrayed of Islam.

Prejudice against Islam in the West developed due to historic rivalry of Christianity against Islam. The defeat of Christians by the Muslims in Crusades was a big shock for the Christian world. These deep wounds are still so fresh in the Christian world today that the parents, media, politicians and teachers feel it a duty to nurture the feelings of prejudice against Islam in the hearts and minds of their young generations. According to Runnymede Trust, Britain has become “an institutionally Islamophobic” society in which Muslims are demonised. Hostility towards Muslims is still a major problem and is not being taken seriously enough by race relations bodies. According to Dr. Richard Stone, there is now renewed talk of a clash of civilizations, a new global cold war, and mounting concern that the already fragile foothold gained by Muslim communities in Britain is threatened by ignorance and intolerance. According to John Gieve of the Home office, Islamic extremism might be a “symptom of disaffection”. The same disaffection previously surfaced during the riots that shook Oldham and Bradford in 2001.

Jews and Christian scholars, the so called Western Orientals have always tried to mispresent Islam in their writings. They have always tried to spread baseless lies against Islam in a very authentic and scholarly style, hiding their deep rooted hatred against Islam. They have called all efforts to restore pure Islam in Muslim countries as “fundamentalist movements” against modern-day material progress and economic development. Lacy O’Leary in the book “Islam at the cross road”: “history makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.” Even Gandhi refuted the false propaganda, otherwise, one could not find even a single Hindu or non-Muslim in the Indian sub-continent and on top of that Sikhism could not dare to emerge as a religion. India would be the largest Muslim country in the world. In the 20th century new images emerged, the fanatical terrorist, the stone-thrower and the suicide bomber. According to Lord Carey, there was a deep-rooted Islamophobia in Britain. There is a worrying ignorance of Muslim people and suspicion of their presence in the United Kingdom. It is assumed by many that Muslims wish to take over ‘our country and if we allow them to enter Britain in significant numbers they will in time make the country Islamic’.

Mr. Denis MacShane, the Minister for Europe urged British Muslims to adopt the “British norms” and not the way of the “terrorists”, in other words “Islamic way”. He provoked Muslims to choose between the “British way” and the way of terrorism.” Monica Ali’s, who was mis-educated and de-educated by the British education system, portrays Bangladeshi Muslims in Brick Lane as backward, uneducated and unsophisticated. This is the main reason why her book was selected for Guardian First Book Award. The content of the book is a despicable insult to Bengali Muslims at home and abroad. The book can be compared to Salman Rushdie’s Stanic Verses. The combined forces of racial discrimination and Islamophobia have been awesome in the marginalisation and alienation of the Muslim community. Muslims made to feel like an enemy within by Islamophobic attitudes. Hardening prejudice against Islam is creating a dis-affected underclass of young Muslims “time-bombs” likely to explode into violence, according to a recent report. Life for Britain 1.6 million Muslims has never been easy. For decades they have struggled in the face of discrimination in all walks of life. West is not based on Judio-Christian civilisation. This term should be abandoned to be replaced by Judio-Christian-Islamic civilisation. The new language should be used in all venues starting with media, academic statements by politicians, church leaders and Imams of Masajid. These are the words that define how we are related to each other’s.

Through out the modern history, Muslims have contributed for the Renaissance of Western culture and society. Islamic values are not only compatible with the western values they are almost identical. Islamic ideas helped shape the European West that produced the values cherished by the constitution’s framers. Western culture is infact based on Muslim culture. The aim of education is to give the highest possible standard in order to advance spiritually, emotionally, technologically and economically. The early Muslim knew this and they were instrumental in giving the west much of the scientific knowledge that has once helped it to thrive.

Bernard Shaw once said that the future religion of the West would be Islam and only Islam. Islamophobia is guiding Westerners towards that end. They study with open mind the Holy Quran and Islamic literature and poetry. Islam is a force fighting Imperialism. Read the greatest book of revolution: The Holy Quran. Meet the greatest revolutionary of all times: Muhammad (peace be upon him). In America a great number of universities, colleges and schools are offering Islamic Studies courses. There is a possibility that in the near future half of native population would revert to Islam. In fact Islamophobia is a blessing in disguise.

This is a brave step considering the power of the Der Sturmers & the neo-Moselyite street gangs.

Community cohesion is not aided by politicians who jump on the Islamophobic bandwagon to myopically garner the votes of the witch hunting mob.
