There are many hilarious failed attempts to combat
by Muslims who turn out, unfortunately, to have some connection to terror or extremism.
This field is a rich source of comedy.
in America in 2004
"to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims".
However, he rather spoiled this by
beheading his wife
at the Bridges TV studio in 2009.
a conman from Northern Ireland,
converted to Islam and got 3 years jail in Feb 2014 for
plotting to kill Prince Harry.
His notes show how he was determined to fight Islamophobia:
"Aim for target. No civilians to be injured. Dress code is the biker look.
Use low-calibre pistol at close range. Not to be viewed as Islamist extremist."
A gun attack on the Royal family will really help in combating those prejudices.
London student, Mohamed Amoudi,
that "the kuffar" view him as a "jihadist".
His narrative was rather spoiled in Mar 2015, though,
when he was
arrested in Turkey
and accused of trying to join ISIS.
He says that
jihadis join ISIS because Europe is "unwelcoming" to the kind of Islamic extremists who join ISIS.
He says that Islamic extremists in Europe
and "disadvantaged backgrounds"
and feel "aggrieved by their status"
in some of the nicest, richest, most peaceful countries on earth.
So they join ISIS and burn villages and rape Yazidi children.
Yes, that will show people they were wrong to be prejudiced against you.
It is the
strategy of combatting Islamophobia:
"I started attacking people and beating them up because they looked distrustfully at me."
Muslim convert Craig Wallace holds a misspelled sign outside Parliament, Dec 2015, saying:
"I am Muslim. I am labelled a terrorist.
I trust you.
Do you trust me enough for a hug?"
He bravely combats Islamophobia by showing not all Muslims are terrorists.
But rather spoils it the following day when he
threatened to firebomb a female Tory MP's house when she was asleep.
Rolling Stone profile of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 17 July 2013, captures perfectly the passive-aggressive world of Islamic terrorists and Islamic terror supporters:
"With certain friends - Will and Sam among them - Jahar opened up about Islam, confiding his hatred of people whose "ignorance" equated Islam with terrorism, defending it as a religion of peace and describing jihad as a personal struggle, nothing more. This time, says Will, "I remember telling him I thought certain aspects of religion were harmful, and I brought up the 9/11 attacks."
At which point Jahar, Will says, told him he didn't want to talk about it anymore. Will asked why. "He said, 'Well, you're not going to like my view.' So I pressed him on it, and he said he felt some of those acts were justified because of what the U.S. does in other countries".
"There are no values anymore",
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, complaining about the immorality of Western society.
So he killed an 8 year old boy
and blew the leg off a 6 year old girl.
Quebec town lifts veil on Muslim stereotypes, National Post, Canada, 12 Feb 2007.
Mouna Diab travels to the Canadian town of Herouxville
to counter "xenophobic attitudes toward immigrants".
She spent her visit there
"educating the community"
"to break through the lack of comprehension and the prejudice".
However, her attempt to combat "Muslim stereotypes" has been slightly spoilt:
Naser Abdo, a Muslim soldier in the U.S. military, tells
in 2010 that he wants out of the Army
"so he can spend his life combating what he called Islamaphobia and advocating Islam as a peaceful religion."
He wants to show people that:
"We're not all terrorists, you know?"
Iraq Veterans Against the War
read a statement on "Islamophobia"
from Naser Abdo at a press conference in 2010.
"The association of terror and Islam is what we now refer to as Islamaphobia".
Naser Abdo gets a massive prison sentence in Aug 2012.
He told the judge:
"I don't ask the court for mercy
I have continued to answer the call of jihad
and will continue to the day I am called to account for my deeds" [i.e. death].

"I'M MUSLIM NOT TERRORIST".

Good for him for fighting stereotypes.
Right: He rather spoils his message by
joining Islamic State
He was killed by a US air strike in Oct 2015.
Ohio State University attack of Nov 2016 turned out to be yet another lonely soul battling negative views of Islam by carrying out terror attacks.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Muslim Somali refugee,
is afraid of the bigotry that he thinks is everywhere in America, the country that somehow gave him refuge and sent him to university.
See full size.
He says people have the wrong idea about Muslims:
"I wanted to pray in the open, but I was scared with everything going on in the media. Iím a Muslim, itís not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I donít know what theyíre going to think, whatís going to happen. But, I donít blame them. Itís the media that put that picture in their heads so theyíre just going to have it and it, itís going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed."
So he bravely stood up against bigotry and negative views of Muslims by ... carrying out a terrorist vehicle and stabbing attack on his own campus.
That should do the trick.
Ohio State University staff member
Stephanie Clemons Thompson
urges compassion for the cruel terrorist
who tried to kill random students.
Why? Because of his religion and skin colour.
I can see no other reason why she would defend him.
Imagine if a white right-wing Christian tried to kill random students on campus.
Would she say:
"Think of the pain he must have been in to feel that his actions were the only solution."
The passive-aggressive nature of some Islamic extremists
has been noted by comedians.
"Crazed Palestinian Gunman Angered By Stereotypes".
A cracking 1997 piece from The Onion.
Some of the stories above are like real-life versions of this.
"Al Hamad said his vacation was ruined when federal agents seized a crate of chemical weapons he had brought into the U.S. as a gift for a friend in New York.
... Again, it's a case of people jumping to conclusions on the basis of skin color. And that can be very frustrating."
The hilarious bit in
where Islamic terrorists complain about people linking Islam to terror.
A real-life British Islamofascist did something similar:
one of the thuggish
pretended to be a suicide bomber to scare the kuffar.
"Another video clip retrieved by police showed Mr Barnes at Finsbury Park Tube station pretending to be a suicide bomber on the platform in front of other passengers."
People need to stop disliking Islam or there will be more terror!
"he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion."
- Elmirza Khozhugov
recalls his brother-in-law
Tsarnaev was so angry with the depiction of Islam as violent that he bombed Boston in Apr 2013, killing 4 and injuring 298.
Who I block:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following:
(a) Make threats.
(b) Accuse me of crimes.
(c) Comment on my appearance.
(d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.)
(e) Complain to my employer.
Yes, people do all these things.
