Islam is the new black

March 5, 2008 at 2:53 am (Life) (, , , , )

.., nigger, that is. That come in mind after following several news about Obama continuously accused as being a moslem, therefore he is inherently evil. Although some asked “why should it matters?” apparently that prejudice is so strong so that he openly refuse that “smear”.
Eteraz had summed up several hostile discrimination attacks on muslims, that reminds me to KKK. Although a video cited here indicating Obama’s neutrality, his view about special relationship about US and Israel made me choose to not hold high HOPE that CHANGE will happen in middle east. About neutrality, that is. Not unexpected, sadly.

UPDATE:
I’m very happy knowing and informing that theveiledtsunami, first commenter in this post, has already written longer and, because she’s a citizen and voter, fuller post.
UPDATE 2:
Later I receive sad news about death threat to a bishop in Oxford that backs adzan (Islamic call to prayer). Reminds me to a scene in a film about KKK that states that the only thing worse than black people is white people that love blacks. So funny how history repeats itself.
UPDATE 3:
Another sad news about another hatred from a senator’s spiritual adviser

    Yes. You have hit the nail on the head. So unfortunate, but so true. Muslim is the new nigger. Imagine how I feel about that as both Muslim and African-American (and a woman).

    Sadly, Obama couldn’t even imagine a hope for the presidency if he didn’t at least elude to some type of congenial relationship with Isreal. The nature of the game, I am afraid.

    that he is willing to support Isreal, a baby murdering, land stealing, pseudo-nation.

    If islam is the new black what are the Jews? I’d ask the veiled one at her place but her blog has been deleted.

    You all must realize that it is a two way street. Christians are not always treated with kindness in Muslim countries. Quite the contrary. And Apostates are killed when they leave Islam. What sort of religion is that?😦

    Unfortuantely, working full time, homeschooling, and going to school myself, doesn’t allow me to manage the blog the way I would like.

    To answer you velvet, the question here isn’t about Jews. It is about Muslims. We are the new black. The proof? All of the blabber mouth nonsense over the fact that Obama’s middle name is Hussein. Another big example? The fact that when I fax my resume under my very caucasian (scottish) maiden name, I get calls to no end. When I fax a resume with my Muslim name? I can hear the crickets singing.

    Christians may not always be treated with kindness in Muslim countries and this is unfortuante, but what is your point? While there are plenty of Muslim immigrants in this country what abotu people likeme, who are not immigrants. How is it justified then? What is the excuse then? This is my country, and I want and expect to be treated just as well as Jane Smith or John Doe.

    As for what happens with apostates, why are you concerned with that? You’re not Muslim and you’re not in a Muslim country. These people, the Muslims, should govern themselves as they wish to be governed. The Western way isn’t the only way.

    velvethammer,
    maybe you can check this and contrast it to my UPDATE 2 & UPDATE 3 above.

    Yes, I agree with you that it’s two way street. Yet, it seems you have been a victim of “bad news is news, good news is no news”. You don’t know the peace Christian people feel in Indonesia, Jordan, Egypt, Gulf Region
    UPDATE:
    the fact that Palestinian Christians at Betlehem mourn on the assassination of Muhammad Shehadah, a Jihad leader can be another argument.

    Obama’s pastor [”my moral compass”] the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, is a vile hate filled ignorant man. His sermons (if you can call them that. I do not) are extreme examples of vitriolic rant filled race baiting.

    McCain was using Parsley for votes. Obama has been a member of Wrights church for at least 20 years. Big difference.

    Talking Points – TUCC – Obama’s Church
    The vision statement of Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon the systematized liberation theology that started in 1969 with the publication of Dr. James Cone’s book, Black Power and Black Theology.

    A quote taken from James Cone’s book “A Black Theology of Liberation”

    To be a disciple of the black Christ is to become black with him. Looting, burning, or the destruction of white property are not primary concerns. Such matters can only be decided by the oppressed themselves who are seeking to develop their images of the black Christ. . .

    And don’t even get me started on death threats. Or should I say actual murder? I have a time line on my site outlining both the early Islamic conquest and a time line in a recent article displaying mind blowing cases of violent Muslim outrage just because they were offended.

    What of rape of western girls in Europe.
    The high numbers are frightening.

    The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six – 6 – times as common today as they were a generation ago….

    According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Br, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants

    .

    While 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo’s population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases, with 20 percent being women of foreign background.

    The figures have nearly doubled in the last ten years: 467 rapes against children under the age of 15 were reported in 2004 compared with 258 in 1995.

    Since you have broached the subject. I do not believe Islam is a religion. It is a political ideology based on a theocratic version of Islam and Islamic law. False from the get go.

    CYA

    welcome back, dear velvethammer.
    Maybe that you don’t know, I’m not a voter on US Presidential vote. I’m not even a US citizen. Please reread my post above. I’m not glad to say that the parts on Obama on your comment #5 is off topic.

    About rape, I believe that no religion allows that. We can agree about that. But that can not justify racist behaviour.

    Oh, yeah, you asked me about Jews. No, I don’t deny their right to exist and pray God in the way that Moses taught. The right that acknowledged also by Muhammad. If you subscribe this blog, you will find out that, with God’s permission.

    About your view about Islam, I read that sentence several times but I still don’t get it. Islam is a religion, in that Islam tells about existence of The Creator, and teaches how to worship That One God. I’m sure you already know that. Or maybe you mean that Islam is a false religion? If so, does that mean you deny muslim’s right to exist ?

    CYA

    I have been reading the last sentence of your last comment and I too am confused. “Islam is a political ideology based on a theocratic version of Islam… ” Then what is it you are saying that Islam is? I think that this is probably the most inflammatory statement that you have made yet, as it appears to deny Muslims the right or the validation to even exist. And, where did you come by this misinformation? Or is this something that you are making up in anger? What exactly is your point? And by the way, who are you to simply decide that a faith doesn’t exist? I have never heard anything so arrogant and mixed up.

    Do you live in palestine? I thought you were an American.

    Guess what Palestine is not real either.

    “Islam is a political ideology based on a theocratic version of Islam”
    What do you not understand?

    I have never heard anything so arrogant and mixed up.

    And apologizing for the murders of apostates is not arrogant and mixed up?

    Best and Worst Places In Terms of Women’s Freedom

    The worst
    1. Afghanistan

    2. Democratic Republic of Congo

    3. Iraq

    4. Nepal

    5. Sudan

    6. Guatemala

    7. Mali

    8. Pakistan

    9. Saudi Arabia

    10. Somali (especially its capital Mogadishu)

    The best
    1. Iceland
    2. Norway
    3. Australia
    4. Canada
    5. Ireland
    6. Sweden
    7. Switzerland
    8. Japan
    9. Netherlands
    10. France

    How is that for some perspective? What is a common denominator in the ‘worst’ category? Once you figure that out compare it to the countries in the ‘best’ category. Which does not contain the ‘common denominator I speak of. Not as a majority at least.
    Now all of the countries in the ‘worst’ category are not linked by the common denominator. Though there are more that do than do not.

  10. Reza Primardiansyah said,

    Ah, yes. That.
    Let’s cross out Nepal, Congo and Guatemala, because they don’t have the common denominator that you imply.
    Let’s cross out also lands of conflict, because almost all human right and freedom is not honored there : Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Somali.

    In Saudi, I am only concerned, for now, about women’s license to drive. I am confused also about inability to vote for women, because Islam respects women, including their opinion.

    On the other side, velvethammer, what are the parameters to judge? Does it contains freedom to be valued based on achievement only? Does it have freedom from sexual harrasment? (Yes, that happens also in muslim populated countries, but it is still stated un-Islamic -> crime). What about freedom from having to sell out sex or sexiness for living? Check out this for getting my point.

    CU later

    Many so-called Muslim countries actually infringes many Islamic teachings.
    Including the one you mentioned above.

    Therefore, of course, it’s logically flawed to blame the mistakes of the (so-called) Muslims / Muslim countries into Islam itself.
    Let’s try to find out which is which, shall we ? Don’t get them mixed up.

    Thanks for the article and the interesting discussion.
