Islamophobia - an invention of the Media
I saw an interesting tweet regarding the ISIS takeover of large parts of Iraq and Syria last year; it showed a long stream of Christian women and children refugees walking through the desert with the caption "are these Islamophobics?". One picture can tell more than a thousand words. I also saw thousands of Muslims being welcomed into Munich railway station. The difference in the refugee types were that in Munich they were nearly all men. Our Prayer Crusader - St Cecilia informed me that most of the Muslim refugees are in fact men. Once they have claimed asylum they will send for their wives and families who in turn will send for theirs so the one million refugees arriving last year in Western Europe will turn into 5 million in no time at all.
Am I being Islamophobic? Or am I just stating the obvious? I'm not going to go into the fact that there has been yet another terrible atrocity; there have simply been too many of these in recent years. Recent years? It's always been like this. Islam has always taken over other counties by force then converted them by the sword, never by missionary work as per Christianity. In fact as far as Catholics are concerned we can never use force to convert, it's part of our faith. However, in contrast Muslims can, - it's part of their faith. In 1095 Pope Urban II called the first Crusade; the terrible death toll of unarmed Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land and the pleas of the Byzantine Emperor for help left him little choice. The armies of Islam had taken over most of his lands, coupled with the fact that three quarters of Christendom had been overrun by Islam in the eleventh century meant that if Christians failed to do something they would cease to exist.
The Western media really have let the West down with regards to Islam by not telling the truth; even today the media has found many peace loving Muslims to tell us that Islam is a peaceful religion and that to say otherwise is all just Islamophobia.
