Maddow Islamophobes Stoking Anti-Muslim Attacks & Creating More Terrorists Recruits

Rachel Mddow questions the motives of the Ant-Ground Zero Mosque protesters .
Is it really about a Mosque at Ground Zero or is it about Mosques anywhere in the United States. Is their objective just to promote Islamophobia.

In a number of posts I have been outling the rise of Islamophobia in America and throughout the West- Canada ,Europe, Australia etc.

So if we track the activities and the writings and media exposure of the Professional Islamophobes & anti-Muslim Agitators it becomes apparent that they are using the New York Mosques as a catalyst for promulgating their erroneous characterization of all of Islam.
The Islamophobes such as Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs & SIOA, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, Daniel Pipes, David Horowitz , Newt Gingrich , Sarah Palin et al are using the media in order to promote the idea that all Muslims by definition are at War with the West , with Christendom, Christianity, Judaism & Israel and these Evil Muslims will use whatever strategy that's most effective to take over the West and thereby destroy Western Civilization ala Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations thesis .
Muslims they claim will use violence or a form of Stealth Jihad to undermine American and Western Values and Western governments.
Because Muslims in defense of their religion are permitted to lie and use subterfuge to achieve their goals -according to the Islamophbes no Muslim can be trusted since one doesn't know when they are being sincere and truthful and when they are lying and deceiving non-Muslims.

This is an assumption which has been used to attack Jews or Catholics etc.
Anti-Semites erroneously characterize Jews in a similar fashion claiming there is a centuries old conspiracy by the Jewish people to control every nation on earth openly or by the hidden hand as it were.
Those who are anti-Catholic claim that Catholics owe their allegiance to the Vatican and the pope and so are not loyal to the nations in which they reside.
John F. Kennedy in order to become president had to prove that even though he was Catholic that he was loyal to America first and not the Vatican and the pope.
Such extreme views about Catholicism still exist in America -Pastor John Hagee for instance still characterizes the Catholic Church as the "Whore of Babylon".

The Islamophobes characterize Muslims as having no loyalty to America or any other country where they happen to reside. These Muslims are loyal only to Islam and spreading Islam around the Globe.
(By the way don't Evangelical Christians als believe that Christianity must become the Dominant religion around the Globe. This in Christendom is known as The Great Commission to spread the Gospel of Jesus to the ends of the earth.

Taliban Operatives Using Protests Against Park 51 to Get ‘More Recruits, Donations and Popular Support’ by Zaidjilani via, August 30, 2010

For months, conservatives have led a hateful campaign against the proposed Park 51 Islamic community center that is going to be built two blocks away from Ground Zero in New York City. High-ranking Republicans have spearheaded this campaign, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich even going as far as to claim that Park 51 will act as a launching pad for the introduction of “Sharia law” to America.

Now, Newsweek reveals the most concrete evidence yet that this campaign is serving to bolster support for Islamic radicalism abroad. In an interview with the magazine, a Taliban operative going by the name Zabihullah said that, by “preventing this mosque from being built, America is doing us a big favor.” He goes on to explain that the anti-mosque campaign is providing the Taliban with “with more recruits, donations, and popular support.” Another Taliban official expects that the anti-mosque campaign will provoke a “new wave of terrorist trainees from the West,” similar to suspected Times Square car bomber Faisal Shahzad. Zabihullah concludes, the “more mosques you stop, the more jihadis we will get”...

Hate Moves Upstate: Mosque Near Rochester Targeted by Bigots by Joshua Holland via & Think Progress ,August 31, 2010

Waterport, New York, is 373 miles from the sacred ground of the World Trade Center site. But apparently, the good Americans up near the Canadian border have some sensitivities just like those folks down in the Big City, and the local-but-god-damn-foreign-seeming Muslims aren’t respecting those sensitivities at all (HT: mistermix).

After a group of worshippers at a mosque in Waterport said they had been targets of violence–five teens, all from Holley, were arrested Tuesday for disrupting a religious service

One of those person was arrested on felony charges of illegal possession of a weapon.

According to Jacob Zimmerman, member of the World Sufi Foundation, Monday night during evening prayers, cars drove by the mosque with people yelling obscenities and squealing tires—and gunshots were fired.

Zimmerman said when the 11 p.m. services ended, his friend David Bell heard something and ran to the bottom of the hill where a black SUV which had been harassing mosque members over recent days injured Bell in the hip and the mouth.

“It’s been going on for years,” Zimmerman said, “It’s never been taken seriously. It takes the police at least a half hour to get down here”.

Mosque members have just begun observing the holy month of Ramadan which is the ninth month of the Islamic year, observed as sacred with fasting and practiced daily from dawn to sunset.

Here’s a local news report featuring an interview with Zimmerman (who just looks like a terrorist):

and so it goes,
