Turkish PM: Islamophobia a form of racism, crime against humanity

erdoganApparently, “Islam” is not just a religion, it’s now a “race,” according to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who proclaimed that “Islamophobia” is a form of racism, according to a post at the World Bulletin.  He also declared that it was a crime against humanity.

“It must be known that Islamophobia is dangerous as much as racism, discrimination or anti-semitism. Because Islamophobia is a kind of racism such as the other forms of discrimination. It is a crime against humanity,” he said.

The World Bulletin added:

Stating that Islamophobia was embittered via movies, soap operas, music, media, photographs even with unofficial articles and essays, Erdogan said 9/11 caused an enemy perception against “Islam” in the western world.

He added “No monotheistic religion adopts, supports, permits or leads terror.”

Don’t tell that to the families of the nearly 3,000 who died on 9/11.

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc agreed, saying:  “Islamophobia as a hate ideology is also a tool of oppression.”

He also said that that anyone with intelligence and conscience had to oppose this crime as a humanly duty.

But what about opposing people who cut the heads off 40-day-old infants?  Apparently, in his view, that’s a crime against humanity…

It’s official: We now live in a world where good is evil and evil is good.
