I was over at the Islamophobia Watch site and read through some of their articles that they believe details anti-Muslim sentiments. It’s really difficult to take it seriously because they are so ill-informed. In fact, for people in the know, what is presented there comes across as outright lies; lies that are designed to cause people to sympathize with the plight of the poor Muslim.
This is not to knock Muslims. It’s to knock Islam and I’ll say that right up front. I’ve read too many articles about how Muslims are allegedly mistreated and how people seem to be out to get them. The truth though is that much of the trouble that Muslims experience is due to their own cowardice and manipulation of the media.
For some reason, the mainstream media does sympathize with Islam and Muslims in particular. Christianity? Judaism? It’s open season on both of these religions and all but the most jaded and blind are unable to see it.
