People Who Are Afraid of ”Offending Muslims” Are the True Islamophobes

Canadian school cancels event with ISIS survivor Nadia Murad after complaints it would be "offensive to Muslims" (reclaimthenet.org)

I would be more sympathetic about things that are “offensive to Muslims” if anyone at all was worried about things that are “offensive to Christians”. And if Muslims weren’t responsible for most of the world’s terrorism. They’re chopping people’s heads off on TV and we’re not allowed to “offend” them?

That’s Islamophobia, pure and simple. You don’t want to offend them because you know that will inspire them to commit more terrorist acts.

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has canceled an event featuring Nadia Murad, an ISIS survivor.

Murad was to attend a book club event where she would discuss her book “The Last Girl: My Story Of Captivity” with students from the TDSB. The book explains how she escaped ISIS, which captured and subjected her to sexual slavery at only 14 years of age.

Well, yes, I can understand how Muslims might be offended that someone escaped from them and avoided sexual slavery at their hands.

You don’t have the right to not be offended. But Murad does have the right to not be a slave to you.

I hate people who accuse me of being an Islamophobe when they’re far more of one than I could ever be.
