So we all have heard stories, and even many have witnessed, the recent rise in Islamophobia.
Muslim women are being attacked by xenophobic men and women, young Muslim students harassed, and even reports of Hindus and Sikhs being mis-labelled as Islamic and experiencing hate speech and hate crime at the hands of uneducated idiots.
Now, we all know the views of those on the other side of the fence are far from ‘peaceful’,
but it’s come to my attention that many are saying the stories about a rise in attacks on Muslims is untrue. It’s not hard to have a quick browse of the news to know this is untrue.
There are also mentions of Islamic leaders not denouncing, or only a small amount denouncing, the actions of extremists. A local article is located here and a nice list of some who have spoken out located here.
Christianity has only made one publicised apology for atrocities like the Spanish Inquisition, from the Pope over a decade ago, but have made no apologies or distanced themselves from the actions of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army, an extremist Christian terrorist organisation.
Funnily enough, Shermon and his mates running the Reclaim show have also made no offer to distance themselves from the Neo Nazis festering in their groups either. Who would’ve thought.
