Help a Brother Out: Is This “Islamophobia”?

See what you make of this:

Muslims should realize that if they need to save Canada from threats of terrorism, then they should shun the ruse of Islamophobia, and Jihadi conspiracy theories. They are living in Canada as a pampered minority, where the society accepts all their demands of exclusion, meets their request of providing prayers areas in private and public spaces, and lets them pull their children out of many secular programs. If they fail to reciprocate and keep yelling ‘Islamophobia’ to silence genuine debate, then the host society has an absolute right to act in revulsion towards them.

I have a hunch that the likes of Ben Affleck and Reza Aslan and Rula Jebreal would easily take offense at the passage, considering it prima facie evidence of rank bigotry.

Do you? Take your time, and don’t scroll just yet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll come clean now: I changed that paragraph just a little. Mind you, I changed nothing about its contents. I just substituted a few personal pronouns — “they” for “we.” Here’s the original:

We Muslims should realize that if we need to save Canada from threats of terrorism, then we should shun the ruse of Islamophobia, and Jihadi conspiracy theories. We are living in Canada as a pampered minority, where the society accepts all our demands of exclusion, meets our request of providing prayers areas in private and public spaces, and lets us pull our children out of many secular programs. If we fail to reciprocate and keep yelling ‘Islamophobia’ to silence genuine debate, then the host society has an absolute right to act in revulsion towards them.

The words were written by blogger and Huffington Post writer Munir Pervaiz Saami.

Saami is a Canadian Muslim.
