Islamophobia or Common Sense?
Earlier this month, the ConservativeHome website published a Leftie Lexicon written by Inigo Wilson that lampooned the favourite ‘buzzwords’ of the Left in Britain. Unfortunately, but perhaps predictably, certain Muslims took exception to this entry:
Islamophobic — anyone who objects to having their transport blown up on the way to work.
Palestinians — archetype ‘victims’ no matter how many teenagers they murder in bars and fast food outlets. Never responsible for anything they do — or done in their name — because of ‘root causes’ or ‘legitimate grievances’.
The Muslim Public Affairs Committee — a rather nasty Muslim pressure group — complained to his employer Orange and Mr Wilson was subsequently suspended pending an ‘investigation’. The hypocrisy of Orange can be seen when one realises that Orange sponsors the free-speech group Index on Censorship. Mr Wilson made two mistakes, the first was to blog under his own name and the second was to express what most are thinking in Britain — Lefties and multi-culturists excepted — but are too afraid to say.
Earlier this week, passengers refused to board, and some who had boarded walked off, a flight from Malaga to Manchester because of two ‘suspicious-looking’ men. These two men were described ‘to be of Asian or Middle Eastern appearance’, in plain English the passengers were worried that they were Muslim and thus more likely to be terrorists. The flight departed without the two men, undoubtedly to the great relief of the passengers and crew.
Muslims and Leftie multi-culturists will claim both these examples demonstrate Islamophobia, in reality they are just common sense.
