UK U-Turn: Government rejects working definition of “Islamophobia” because it would “restrict legitimate criticism of islam”
In a surprise move, the UK government has refused “to adopt a working definition of ‘Islamophobia’ proposed by an all-party Parliamentary group (APPG). The definition, as put forward by the British Muslims APPG in December, determined that Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness”.
What pray tell does “Muslimness” even mean? And why would anyone accept this loose term without demanding an adequate definition of it?
Forcing the term “Islamophobia” upon Western nations boils down to beating anyone up who criticizes Islam. Unsurprisingly, the Conservatives have “come under fire from Muslim groups and Labour MPs” for rejecting the “Islamophobia” definition.
Once again, we see the alliance between far Leftists and Islamic supremacists in their routine manipulation of identity politics. Islamic supremacists and jihadists have long documented their goals for establishing the sharia in infidel countries, so Western leaders who enable their objectives are without excuse. It is high time that the UK government begins to show leadership in the war on terror, and it is doing just that in its rejection of the term “Islamophobia”. It is no secret that the UK has been–up to now– facilitating the Islamization of its own country. Its odious record includes: welcoming in hate preachers, banning truth tellers like Robert Spencer, and even Franklin Graham amongst others, persecuting Tommy Robinson, turning its back on persecuted Christians, covering up the shocking actions of Muslim rape gangs, and adopting open-door immigration.
In what amounts to a U-turn, the government rejected the APPG’s definition of ‘Islamophobia’, because it “would negatively impact free speech and restrict legitimate criticism of Islam as a belief system, or of Islamic countries.”
