Islamophobic is a word spliced together with the English for Islam and the Greek phobia.
I have no idea if “Islam” is an English transliteration of Arabic or if it is the actual Arabic adopted into English. Frankly, I don’t care. I know that “Islam” is a theopolitical religion founded by a man that legitimate history paints as a robbing bandit that developed a loyalty-cult by calling himself a prophet of a monotheistic deity that gave him permissive justification for all sorts of vile acts to enlarge that cult and perpetuate after it after his demise.
Initially the acts began as violent robberies of Arabic tribal caravans that were not loyal to Muhammad’s (or for years known as Mohammed in English) cultic teachings. Those teachings centered around absolute submission to the deity Muhammad carved out of a polytheistic moon-god (allah) and thus that deity called for absolute submission to his prophet Muhammad. After all Mo was the only human being that called the voice of allah; ergo, when Mo spoke allah spoke.
“Phobe” comes from a Greek word that that English is phobia. If you have a phobia, you have an irrational fear. Here are some irrational fears you may have heard of:
Agoraphobia- Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place.
Bacteriophobia- Fear of bacteria.
Francophobia- Fear of France or French culture.
Hydrophobia- Fear of water or of rabies.
Necrophobia- Fear of death or dead things.
Xenophobia- Fear of strangers or foreigners. (via a fascinating romp through PhobiaList.com. I doubt it is comprehensive yet fun nonetheless)
Islamophobe is the word Leftists and Muslim Apologists use an epithet to describe those that sense Islam spreads hatred of non-Muslims. Thus, the epithet leads to the accusation of racism. In other words, if you fit the description of Islamophobe, then you are a racist.
I am not a racist and I definitely don’t have an irrational fear of Muslims or Islam.
So, after listening to the lame Mainstream Media (MSM or Lame Stream Media) criticize Conservatives over anger of the immigration program that brought us Sayfullo Saipov, the Islamic terrorist that killed 8 with a truck, the term Islamophobic racists became the common MSM accusation. I’ve become quite weary of the idiotic reference to critics of Islam.
Ergo, I decided to look for a better term that describes my aversion as something better than an irrational fear of Islam. Phobia comes from the Greek language. I looked for a Greek word that better fits my feelings toward Islam.
I found a Greek word in a Bible Concordance online. Biblehub.com uses the Strong’s Concordance number system. Ever since the 9/11 attack, I have been angry at all things Islam. I have boned up on Islam a lot since then. I am not an expert, but I can read well enough to know deceptive propaganda when I see it come Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists.
The Greek word that best describes the anger I have Islam is orgizó. I’m not going to take the time to look it up, but I am fairly certain orgizó’s root word orgé is what the English word for a monster-like creature known as an ogre is derived.
Here is what Strong’s says about orgízõ:
Cognate: 3710 orgízō – be angry, as expressing a "fixed anger" (settled opposition). 3710 /orgízō ("to show settled-opposition") is positive when inspired by God – and always negative when arising from the flesh. "Sinful (unnecessary) anger" focuses on punishing the offender rather than the moral content of the offense. See 3709 (orgē).
My anger is “fixed” as in “settled opposition”. The Word of God warns of allowing settled opposition to evolve into acts of sin:
Being angry is not a problem. The problem is if one takes anger to actions that are not godly:
25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”[a] for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”:[b] do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil.
29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. (Ephesians 4: 25-27, 29, 31 NKJV)
Contrast how the Word of God tells Believers how to act in anger as opposed to the way Mo – allegedly from allah – tells his followers to deal with anger particularly when anger is insulting to Mo and allah:
57. Verily, those who annoy Allah and His Messenger Allah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment.
58. And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly, bear on themselves the crime of slander and plain sin.
60. If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease (evil desire for adultery, etc.), and those who spread false news among the people in Al-Madinah, cease not, We shall certainly let you overpower them, then they will not be able to stay in it as your neighbours but a little while.
62. That was the Way of Allah in the case of those who passed away of old, and you will not find any change in the Way of Allah. (Bold Emphasis is Editor’s - Quran 33: 57-58, 60-62 TheReligionOfPeace)
For Muslim and non-Muslim alike, insulting Mo and/or allah means a horrible death in this life.
The hypocrites = Those who allow the desires of the flesh to act. Sounds universal, but it’s not. A Muslim man can have sex to assuage his desires under these circumstances:
27: And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord -
28: Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe -
29: And those who guard their private parts
30: Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed -
31: But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors – (Quran 70: 27-31 SAHIH INTERNATIONAL)
Can you guess the reference of “those their right hands possess”? For clarity let’s look at other translations for 70: 30 –
Imam Iskender Ali Mihr
Except with their spouses and those whom their right hands possess (their concubines), because they surely are not blamed.
Ali Quli Qarai
(apart from their spouses and their slave women, for then they are not blameworthy;
Amatul Rahman Omar
Except from their (free) wives or those (wives of theirs) whom their right hands own (- slave wives), for which they are not to blame.
Hilali & Khan
Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed,
Mohammed Habib Shakir
Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed, (Excerpts from Compare all English translations of Surah Al-Ma'arij - verse 30; en.noblequran.org)
“The Hypocrites” of Quran 33: 60 is ONLY telling male Muslim to NOT have carnal relations with Muslim women that are not their wives, but the non-Muslim gals that are abducted are fair game carnal relations – whether non-Muslim gal willingly participates or not. This is being called Rape Jihad in European nations that have taken-in millions of Muslim refugees. Rape Jihad has happened in the USA, but the Multiculturalists are keeping under wraps. Here’s an example from a tag search – Idaho - on SlantRight 2.0.
I am not an Islamophobe. A better word to combine with Islam is something denoting an anger that is a settled established opposition to the theopolitical religion.
So, I am a Islamorgizo. TAKE THAT all you Multiculturalist Leftists that have abandoned the Latin motto of E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One). Muslim refugees have zero intention of becoming ONE, they intend to be the diverse MANY with the hope making non-Muslim America Islamic. An Islamic America is an America without the Bill of Rights.
Conquest and forced submission is Islam became an empire in the once Christian Middle East and North Africa.
Mo was one slick operator. He discovered Jews and Christians developed a huge personal loyalty to a monotheistic God. Mo was in charge of a loyalty cult. Perhaps Mo could strengthen that loyalty if he borrowed from the Judeo-Christian traditions and perhaps entice Jews and Christians to accept him into their prophet traditions as the “final” prophet.
Yah, a majority of Jews and Christians recognized invitation as a heretical warping of their faith.
Suddenly Jews and Christians were demoted from “People of the Book” (i.e. the Bible) to the descendants of apes (Jews) and liars or idiotic deceived for believing Jesus was the Son of God, died on the Cross and arose bodily as the Redeemer of humanity co-equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. Mo convincingly spoke of Father, Son and Holy Spirit three separate entities; hence Christians were polytheistic and not monotheistic like Mo’s moon-god allah (even though allah was once a part of Arab polytheistic pantheon).
I feel compelled to take a shot at explaining the monotheism of the Christian Trinity.
God is one in Father, Son and Holy Spirit as a human is one corporeally as a human spirit (the source of being or existence made in the image of God), a human soul (the source of thought and will) and a body (the flesh of our five senses). God is a Triune God and a human is a tripartite individual.
In full disclosure, people of the Jewish faith (Judaism) also view the Trinity as a diffusion of their primary statement of faith in the Shema: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one![a]” (Deuteronomy 6:4 NKJV) But that is a different theological discussion that is not a part of this topic. Suffice it to say, Christians view the discussion between Moses and God in Exodus 3:14-15 (NKJV):
14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’
The English translation I AM WHO I AM comes from the letters YWVH. In the old King James Version those letters were translated as Jehovah. Most Bible scholars prefer the translation of Yahweh today. It is my understanding that Observant Jews find it disrespectful to verbalize the name. Thus, you probably read YWVH or G-d when written by a person of Jewish faith.
Either way, both Jews and Christians view God as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Abraham’s oldest son Ishmael from Hagar the servant of Sarah, is not a part of that lineage as Mo preached.
As a Christian, my largest reason for having an aversion to Islam (but not to Muslims personally), is its rejection of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the denial of the Lord’s crucified death, burial and Resurrection reasserting His prerogatives as God Almighty yet as also being fully human in order to be the Redeemer of humanity.
The New Testament calls such rejection an Antichrist spirit. That’s a dangerous place to be as a human:
4 1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. (Bold Text Mine I John 4: 1-3 NKJV)
Islam’s revered writings (Quran, Hadith & Sira [Sunna]) specifically – not metaphorically – condemns the Divinity, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. This makes all of Islam – Sunni & Shia – an Antichrist warped religion.
In full disclosure, I believe all religions not Christian are a danger to the Salvation of an individual person. The only religion I give an exception to is Judaism. Just as an aside, without Jews there would be no Jesus. No Jesus means eternal separation from the Presence of God because there is no Redemption from Adam and Eve’s rebellion against God that began humanity’s separation from God.
Jesus told this to the Samaritan woman whose religious faith was an eclectic combination of Judaism and polytheism:
19 The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. (Bold Text Mine John 4: 19-22 NKJV)
It is my personal opinion and I can’t think of any Christian theologian who has said this, when Christ returns in power the second time to establish His Kingdom governance on Earth, I believe Observant Jews will recognize Jesus finally as the Messiah they watched for generations and generations.
I recognize that Observant Jews are laughing at me right now and that idiotic Antisemitic Christians are horrified, but oh well. I’ll stick with that opinion unless God smacks around to change. I’m nearly 61 and Divine slapping around has occurred. Humans slapping me around for my opinion don’t count. God’s Hand trumps humankind’s hand.
Well that is some good preaching if you receive it.
BACK TO ISLAM.
I am a huge supporter of the American First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (The links are to Heritage Foundation essays on Establishment of Religion and to the Free Exercise of Religion. The Heritage Guide to The Constitution; Heritage Foundation; © 2017)
The government is Constitutionally prohibiting the establishment of a religion (but citizens are not prohibited to influence government regardless of SCOTUS Leftist misinterpretation – another topic), AND the government CANNOT prevent the free exercise of religion.
I do find Islam abhorrent as an Antichrist religion, but I honor the Constitution by standing with Muslims to practice their wicked religion ….
Islamic adherents or adherents of any religion or ideology actively or even violently, seeks to violate the Constitutional law in rebellion, squelching others’ Bill of Rights liberties. THEN Judges and Congressional legislators will have to find that fine Constitutional line that protects the Constitution from a violent termination.
If Multiculturalist Leftists persist in demonizing President Trump’s efforts to slow down the flood of Muslims devoted to the tenets of Islam which will always lead to the hatred of the U.S. Constitution and by extension all Americans that stand by the Liberty and Rights provided therein.
