The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers… [Turkish PM Erdoğan]
With this tolerant and inclusive view of society in mind – and not at all militant, political Islam – Erdoğan recently threatened Dutch officials¹. The crime? They barred two Turkish-national rabble-rousers from campaigning for him in Holland. Seems fair enough, but not for the old ‘Erdster‘. Quickly thereafter ensued the quaint Dutch tradition of ‘Rioting Islamists In The Streets‘, followed by anther old Dutch tradition called ‘Call In The Riot Police Before The Mass Rapes Begin‘, which will presumably be followed by one of the Nederlands’ most ancient traditions of ‘Lock Up The Islamophobes‘.
Ah yes, the “Islamopobes”! Because this riotous behaviour is apparently a manifestation of Islamophobia.
The West has clearly shown its true face in the last couple of days. What we have seen… is a clear manifestations of Islamophobia. [Erdoğan]
So what does the pretend word Islamophobia truly mean? In a rare moment of truth it seems that Islamophobia means riots. So if you’re an Islamophobe you have an irrational fear of: Islamic riots! True that.
