It is very disheartening to view Islam bashing currently taking place world-wide, especially in America. It is totally stupid and it is utterly dangerous! Note that I am non-religious and I am adamantly opposed to mixing church and state.
1. Islam bashing is totally stupid!
Stop blaming Islam for ISIS! Two main analogies:
2. Islam bashing is utterly dangerous!
Here is an excerpt from Muslim Population in U.S. to Double by 2050, Study Shows - Breitbart:
Do we really want to turn those Muslim Americans, including more than 5,000 Muslims serving in U.S. Military, into enemies?
3. Islam bashing vs. slavery
In a nutshell, in America, Islam bashing today is no different from slavery 240 years ago, which is the worst form of race bashing (or racism)! The table below offers a simple comparison.
It took us a civil war (American Civil War) to address the slavery issue, without a satisfactory conclusion yet. It would be foolhardy to start a new one over religion, be it Islam or Buddhism!
4. Treating Muslims: the U.K. vs. the U.S.
Here are two recent news stories to illustrate the differences between the U.K. and the U.S. in treating Muslims:
More prominently, here is a recent headline news story: London's New Mayor Sadiq Khan Wants to 'Educate' Trump on Islam.
Let’s focus on three big subjects:
Let’s discuss them, respectively …
5.1 Islam and terrorism
Many Americans link Islam with terrorism, without knowing, or acknowledging, the simple truth that America has actually been the worst “terror country” in the world since the end of WWII. Two facts: since 1946,
As for ISIS, let's be absolutely clear: Presidents George W. Bush and Obama created it in the first place! Specifically,
As a result of military interventions by Presidents Bush and Obama, not only was ISIS born, it has thrived throughout the entire region!
Furthermore, the current refugee crisis in the Mideast and Europe is a direct result of the Iraq War, followed by our reckless foreign policy (America's Post-WWII Foreign Policy)! Therefore, we have a moral obligation to help!
Now, why so much Islam bashing in America today? It's popular and it's inconsequential (unlike black bashing, for example)!
There are at least two bad cultures in America:
It's time to fix both of them!
5.2 The 9/11 attack
It is a huge deal in America, but very misunderstood, unfortunately. I have published extensively on the 9/11 attack. Here is a summary:
5.3 Race and religion
Race and religion are two of the biggest issues in humanity. America is uniquely challenged by both, because of the multicultural nature of our country. I have also published extensively on this subject. Two informative readings:
Let me repeat and emphasize: it took us a civil war (American Civil War) to address the slavery issue, without a satisfactory conclusion yet, as illustrated by the photo below. It would be foolhardy to start a new one over religion, be it Islam or Buddhism!
Stop Islam bashing! It is totally stupid and it is utterly dangerous!
Now, please sit back and enjoy the video below on racial violence. Can you draw an analogy to "Islamic violence"? Dare you bash the blacks like you do to Muslims today?
