Here we go again, in the wake of Muslim terror, we are admonished and warned against fear of reprisals (which never occur) and “islamophobia” (the sharia-complaint term for opposition to jihad terror). Instead of the Muslim community banding together and calling for a reformation and the purge of islamic texts and teachings that incite to jihad murder, the victims are attacked again with accusations of racism (Islam is not a race) and denunciations of bogus islamophobia.
The media is scrubbing “Allah akbar!” from the news reports and siding with the jihadists by filing these false reports of possible “backlash.”
Any criticism of jihad terror that examines its ideological roots in Islam is called Islamophobia, The word is used to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad terror. This deforms our response to terrorism by placing off-limits any examination of its guiding ideology, and effectively enforces Sharia blasphemy laws in the US by placing Islam, Quran, Muhammad beyond criticism.

Muslim Americans Again Brace for Backlash After New York Attack
by Chris Fuchs, NBC News, November 1, 2017:
Umer Ahmad, a 43-year-old Muslim-American physician from New Jersey, was in his Trenton office when he heard that a rented pickup truck had deliberately driven down a bike path in Lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring about a dozen more.
“My initial reaction was, obviously, concern and shock over what happened,” Ahmad told NBC News. “And then, basically, I was wondering if it was a Muslim who did it.”
The suspect was identified as an Uzbek immigrant named Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, who entered the United States in 2010, law enforcement officials said.
Saipov hopped out of the truck and shouted “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great,” before firing a BB or pellet gun, four senior law enforcement sources said. Law enforcement sources said he left a note in the truck claiming he committed the attack for the Islamic State terrorist group.
A police officer on patrol in the area opened fire, hitting the suspect in the abdomen and ending what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called “an act of terror.”
Ahmad’s question was answered.
“My biggest concern is that he’s readily identified as a Muslim and then that is extrapolated out to my own faith,” he said.
In the wake of Tuesday’s attack, some Muslim Americans and community leaders expressed concerns over how their religion would be perceived and whether Muslims would become targets of violence.
“There has been a history of, sort of, blowback, and that’s obviously going to be something that people think about,” said Ali Najmi, a board member of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York. “But the primary concern is, usually, and is now, how we can best lend ourselves in this time of crisis.”
Najmi predicted that Muslim-American groups would organize around ways to help those affected by Tuesday’s attack.
“Their primary concern is about how we can be helpful and how we can help the victims and people in crisis,” he said.
