I am an Islamaphobe

Posted by madjillmom on August 24, 2010

Time asks the question and I have my answer.  I am an Islamaphobe.  I had some of it even before 9/11.  I have always felt irritated with a woman all covered in garb walking beside her husband dressed in shorts and tee-shirt.  That irritates me as a woman.  Why must she dress that way when he doesn’t have to.

Then there was 9/11.  At the time, I though I believed the 10% are bad extremist Muslims, the rest are peace-loving.  They pervert the religion that is peaceful.  Now, I believe the opposite is true.  I think there are precious few good Muslims.  I feel this every time I see a spokesman from the Council on American Islamic Relations or a moderate Imam traveling on the taxpayer dole.  It usually takes little time for them to show us that they have more than moderate feelings about Islam.  Today, it is a woman who works at Disney and wants to wear Islamic headscarf.  The accommodation of a bonnet to wear isn’t enough.  Next, it will be girls serving at Hooters in a burka.   No dogs or alcohol in the taxis they drive.  Separate gyms at colleges.  On and on…  little by little…  or they post themselves on TV talking about our deep hatred of muslims the world over. I do not hate them, but I am weary of them.  If you wish to live under the laws of Islam, then move to a country that follows those precepts.

Pres. Obama is now having trouble with the perception of many that he is a Muslim.  He is far too deferential to Muslims.  I am sure it is because of his upbringing and his father.  He was also very comfortable for 20 years in a church that I would never have attended twice.

In the last few weeks, I have seen a guy on Fox who does appear to be the one that really is a moderate Muslim.  I really want him to be as he seems to me now, not like all the other people who reveal themselves to be less than moderate.
