When In Doubt Shout “Islamophobe!”
by

When you find yourself in an online argument with someone and the best your adversary can do is to say that you didn’t provide a link then you know they are grasping at straws.

Yesterday, I took apart American Muslim editor Sheila Musaji’s assertion that my take on the terrorist attacks in Norway was Islamophobic. Musaji responds by protesting that I did not provide a link demonstrating that most terrorist attacks are not committed by Muslims. Except for the fact that I provided the link to her main article which includes the link of which she speaks. I am more than happy to provide the link again as well as to her secondary link. I hope that makes her feel better. Now I did indirectly allude to some of the content in the secondary link by making reference to ETA and the Tamil Tigers. I don’t deny there are non-Muslim terrorist entities who have carried out attacks against innocent civilians. They just lack the global ambition and resources of Muslim terrorist organizations like al Qaeda and Hezbollah. But please, by all means, feel free to read Musaji’s arguments and judge for yourself.

Musaji also makes a point of making a laundry list of terrorist attacks carried out by non-Muslims in the U.S. since September 11, 2001. That’s all well and good but it doesn’t stack up to the more than 17,000 incidents of Muslim terrorism (carried out against Muslims and non-Muslims alike) the world over since September 11, 2001. Musaji can scream “Islamophobe” to her heart’s content. I am merely stating the facts. If Musaji chooses not to accept that a majority of terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims or that Muslim terrorism is a global problem then that is her problem, not mine.
