For many years now I have pointed out repeatedly that the term “Islamophobia” is an illegitimate conflation of two distinct phenomena: vigilante attacks against innocent Muslims, which are never justified, and honest analysis of the motivating ideology of jihad terror, which is always necessary. The objective of this conflation is to silence that analysis by falsely claiming that it leads to or causes those attacks. And although the “Islamophobia” industry profiteers are well aware of my existence and have repeatedly smeared me as one of the world’s leading practitioners of “Islamophobia,” I have never once seen any of them address this point. If I have missed it, you “Islamophobia” mongers are welcome to send me the relevant links, at email@example.com. This is because, I suspect, they know very well what they are doing, and know that I know what they are doing, but hope that few other people will notice.

“Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, anti-Christianity, xenophobia, separatism and extremism continue to increase everywhere,” Çavuşoğlu said.

Stating that the alliance is a solid action plan built on three important issues, Çavuşoğlu said, “These are the prevention and fight against diplomacy and opposition to mediation and violent extremism.”
Çavuşoğlu further listed the “important steps” that the alliance has taken, including the U.N. General Assembly declaring March 15, the anniversary of the 2019 Christchurch attacks in New Zealand, as the International Day to Combat Islamophobia….
