And so it begins. Again. In the wake of every Islamic attack, instead of the Muslim world reflecting on why so many Muslims are waging jihad and wreaking havoc across the world, charges of “islamophobia” “bigotry” and “racism” (even though Islam is not a race) are being leveled — again.
Here comes the fake hate narrative, while the real hate is coming from the jihadists. If Muslims in the West condemn these attacks by jihadists, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it? Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in mosques in the UK or anywhere else, even after several thousand young Muslims from these countries went to Iraq and Syria to wage jihad. If the “moderates” really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against it. Instead, the follow-up to these attacks are cries of “islamophobia.”
The feared “reprisals” never materialize, but that is irrelevant. The distraction is necessary to divert attention away from the motive behind all of these heinous, savage attacks — jihad.
Every horrific jihad attack is accompanied by the predictable, pathetic follow-up attack in the information battle-space. “Backlash-o-phobia” — the irrational fear of a backlash that never happens, but it changes the dialogue. And that’s the point — putting the victims of jihad on the defensive, again.
The mainstream media and law enforcement step and fetch it for Islamic supremacists and their apologists. In reality, the only people spreading Islamophobia are the Muslims who are slaughtering, beheading and violently converting non-Muslims in the cause of Islam.
The thing is — this has been the response by the Muslim world since 9/11. The West never wanted this war. And it’s islamophobic if we defend ourselves and are opposed to jihad. Absurd but true. “Islamophobia” and “backlash” have always been fictions, and were devised as attack mechanisms in the wake of a jihad attack, to deflect and distract from the ideology behind these brutal acts of violence and war.

“Muslim leaders in Manchester report rise in Islamophobic incidents,” by Jamie Grierson and Robert Booth, Guardian, May 24, 2017:

Muslim leaders in Manchester have expressed concern about a number of Islamophobic incidents in the city, from verbal abuse to criminal damage to mosques.
Senior members of the Muslim community say that they have received reports of abusive behaviour since the attack on Manchester Arena earlier this week.
Fawzi Haffar, trustee of the Manchester Islamic Centre in Didsbury, where Salman Abedi, the Manchester Arena bomber, is understood to have prayed, said: “We are concerned about reports we are receiving about anti-Muslim acts. These are terrible anti-Muslim acts ranging from verbal abuse to acts of criminal damage to mosques in the area and outside the area. We do encourage any incidents to be reported as a hate crime.”
Mohammed Ullah, Muslim chaplain at University of Manchester, said that he had heard reports of a Muslim girl being spat at and another Muslim person being told to “go home”. An arsonist attacked a mosque in Oldham, Greater Manchester, shortly after the atrocity.
“We hear reports but many people are very scared to talk about the problem or they don’t want to cause a fuss,” Ullah told the Guardian. “We receive reports but I think incidents are under-reported.”
“Islamophobic attacks have increased in the last few years exponentially,” he went on. “I tell Muslim students to report these hate incidents when they happen. Be vigilant against it and don’t allow hate to divide us.”
Speaking outside the Didsbury mosque, Haffar sought to dispel reports that Abedi had worked at the centre, and said: “We express concern that a small section of the media are manufacturing stories and making unfounded points.”
He also expressed his outrage at the attack, calling it a “horrific atrocity” and saying “this act of cowardice has no place in our religion or any other religion”. He encouraged anyone with information to contact the police.
But Ullah said that Muslims should not be expected to apologise for the actions of extremists.
“I say to Muslims you should not have to apologise for the actions of individuals,” he said. “No other community has ever been held to account like this. Let me be clear – what happened on Monday was a crime of epic proportions. It was epic, evil and one we condemn with the strongest condemnation.
“But let’s also be clear about this – why do we then have to stand up and say: ‘we apologise’? It’s not my fault. It’s not the fault of the religion.”
“We’re sick of having to apologise and being the first to condemn it. What more can we do? Tell me what more can we do?”…
