A Subway Murder and the 'Islamophobia' Industry
Last Saturday, a deranged woman pushed a man in front of a subway train in New York and killed him, explaining that she did it because of her anger with Muslims ever since 9/11. Immediately, leftist and Islamic-supremacist writers swung into action to blame the murder on what they called an "Islamophobia industry," despite the killer's obvious insanity and history of violent attacks on random people. The attacks revealed much about the use of the term "Islamophobia" as a propaganda tool designed to shut down thinking.
One written by Haroon Moghul, "a Fellow at the New America Foundation and the Center on National Security at Fordham Law" as well as "a doctoral candidate at Columbia University," offered more intelligence than the usual character assassins and victim-mongers who spread the myth of "Islamophobia." It also illuminated a great deal about the central premises of the real "Islamophobia industry" – the one that is dedicated to intimidating Americans into thinking that it's "bigoted" to resist jihad and Islamic supremacism.
