Failed attempts to combat Islamophobia

There are many hilarious failed attempts to combat "Islamophobia" by Muslims who turn out, unfortunately, to have some connection to terror or extremism.

This field is a rich source of comedy.





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.




Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's failed attempt to combat Islamophobia

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is the poster boy for all failed attempts to combat "Islamophobia".



Jan 2013: American Muslim Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gets angry with people who link Islam to terrorism.
Apr 2013: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (yes, the same guy) carries out an Islamic terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon, killing 3 and blowing limbs off 14.





"There are no values anymore", said 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.




Mouna Diab's failed attempt to combat Islamophobia



Quebec town lifts veil on Muslim stereotypes, National Post, Canada, 12 Feb 2007.
Lebanese-Canadian Muslim Mouna Diab travels to the Canadian town of Herouxville to counter "xenophobic attitudes toward immigrants".
She spent her visit there "educating the community" about Islam, "to break through the lack of comprehension and the prejudice".




Naser Abdo's failed attempt to combat Islamophobia



Naser Abdo, a Muslim soldier in the U.S. military, tells ABC News 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?"
Very noble.



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".
More here.




Denis Cuspert's failed attempt to combat Islamophobia



Left: German Muslim rapper Denis Cuspert ("Deso Dogg") wears an All4One t-shirt: "I'M MUSLIM NOT TERRORIST".
See pictures here and here and here.
Very nice. Good for him for fighting stereotypes. However:
Right: He rather spoils his message by joining Islamic State in Syria.
He was killed by a US air strike in Oct 2015.




Ohio State attacker

The 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.



Loony left 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.
Consider this: 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."




Twitter "moderates"

Almost any day, you can go on Twitter and find someone claiming to be a "moderate" and in the same tweet supporting terrorism.


"I'm Muslim, I'm not a terrorist", says a Muslim bravely fighting Islamophobia.
But rather spoiling it by saying that apostates must be killed.
After attention, he deleted his account.



"Islam is name of peace harmony and patience", says Pakistani Muslim in Oct 2016.
But rather spoiling it by saying that Asia Bibi must be killed.



This guy only supports religious slaughter in a "moderate" way.




Comedy

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 Four Lions where Islamic terrorists complain about people linking Islam to terror.



People need to stop disliking Islam or there will be more terror!
From here.




"he was angry that the world pictures Islam as a violent religion."
- Elmirza Khozhugov recalls his brother-in-law Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
Tsarnaev was so angry with the depiction of Islam as violent that he bombed Boston in Apr 2013, killing 4 and injuring 298.
