“The definition, adopted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims, defines Islamophobia as ‘rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness’, and has been endorsed by MP (sic) including London mayor Sadiq Khan, anti-Brexit Change UK (CUK) leader Anna Soubry, Labour’s David Lammy, and his controversial colleague Naz Shah, who once ‘liked’ and retweeted a social media post suggesting Muslim rape gang victims should ‘shut their mouths for the good of diversity’.” – Jack Montgomery, “Former equality chief: Islamophobia definition a ‘bullies’ charter’ for censorious Muslims” – Breitbart, June 21st, 2019.

“Neither police nor the park would confirm any more details, however the advocacy group the National Council of Canadian Muslims called the alleged incident ‘extremely troubling’… ‘Rest assured: we’re not going to let anyone get away with racism or Islamophobia,’ the council tweeted Sunday.” – Cdn. Press, “Hate crime investigators probing alleged assault at Canada’s Wonderland” – Toronto Sun, June 30th, 2019.

“…a candidate for the Liberal Democrats, Dániel Tóth-Nagy, was suspended from the party for comments he made, such as: ‘There is no such thing as Islamophobia’ and responding to a tweet about Islamophobia with, ‘What about FGM? Honor Killings? Forced marriage? What do you think about the protest of women in Iran, Saudi-Arabia and other Islamic countries against the compulsory hijab? What about Sharia in Britain? LGBT rights and education denied by Muslims in Birmingham?”… Those questions are all legitimate questions for a politician to ask…” – Judith Bergman, “Germany: A shocking degree of self-censorship” – The Gatestone Institute, July 4th, 2019.

“Trump’s Muslim registry was always a media fiction with no basis in reality. Meanwhile, ‘Islamophobic’ hate crimes all too often turn out to be faked. The reality is that Muslims generally have it better in the West than they do in many Muslim countries, but that fact is seldom stated, as it interferes with the victimhood narrative. If Riz Ahmed, a rich Hollywood actor, really thinks it’s ‘super scary’ to be a Muslim in the West, he should try being a Christian or a Hindu in Pakistan or Nigeria, or a Jew in any Muslim country.” – Robert Spencer, “Muslim Hollywood actor Riz Ahmed: It’s really scary to be a Muslim right now. Super scary.” – Jihad Watch, July 1st, 2019.

“A swimming pool in the German town of Kehl had to be shut down early by police after a group of 50 North African French-speaking youths caused havoc among the bathers. So the first question that comes to mind is ‘what kind of havoc exactly?’ But it would be deemed ‘Islamophobic’, ‘racist’ and guilty of ‘racial profiling’ (even though Islam is not a race) to think that the ‘havoc’ had anything to do with sexual harassment. From indications, it did, and for merely calling it out for what it is, in the interests of public safety is deemed to be ‘racist’ in Germany.” – Christine Douglass-Williams, “Germany: police shut down pool after gang of 50 North African Nafris cause havoc” – Jihad Watch, July 4th, 2019.
