Lecture addressing Islamophobia to be held Wednesday

(Judith Gibson-Okunieff/Collegian)

The Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success will be holding a lecture titled, “Addressing Islamophobia: Dispelling Myths to Confront Hate and Discrimination” in the Cape Cod Lounge this Wednesday, March 22, from 12:00-1:30 p.m.

Director of Intercultural Teaching and Faculty Development at the University of Massachusetts, Dr. Amer Ahmed, will be speaking about Islamophobia and prejudice in the post-9/11 era.

Oscar Collins, interim co-director of CMASS said, “[Dr. Ahmed] has actually done this nationwide. Just talking about the rise of Islamophobia, particularly since 9/11 and other significant issues that have arisen … post-9/11 and subsequently other events that have happened in the nation have sparked concerns around Islamophobia.”

According to the UMass event calendar page created for this lecture, the program “will benefit participants interested in learning more about Islam and Islamophobia while highlighting what we can do to confront challenges we face in the months and years ahead.”

“I’m just hoping that people will be engaged and hear about the issues impacting our country,” Collins said. “Hopefully ways folks can address various forms of xenophobia,” said Collins.

The political climate of 2017 has been criticized for ongoing racial tension.

“I think it has been relevant for a while and it’s just one aspect of how hate is erupting across the country,” Collins said. “Muslim identified individuals in particular have been a target, so I think it’s very timely.”

At the end of the lecture, audience members will get the chance to ask questions of Ahmed.

    It’s not a phobia when they really DO want to kill kaffirs, rape kaffir women, and implement Sharia law globally.

    Here are some of the effects of “cultural enrichment” that Europe is currently experiencing. Sweden is now the rape capital of Europe:

    Muslim Rape Epidemic: Sweden Shocked Again after Woman Raped to Death by Somali Immigrant
    http://canadafirst.nfshost.com/?p=770
    ** Quote: “The woman died while being raped. Police say the perpetrator continued to rape the woman’s corpse well after she had died.” And another quote: “Crime statistics show that rapes in both countries are overwhelmingly perpetrated by Muslim immigrants.2013 figures were given in a recent report by Swedish Public Radio. In the first seven months of 2013, over 1,000 Swedish women reported being raped by Muslim immigrants. Over 300 of those were under the age of 15. The number of rapes is up 16% compared to 2012 numbers.”

    Germany is having similar problems:

    Islam is, historically, arguably the single biggest murder machine in human history:

    And understand that a believing Muslim can lie to your face if, in his/her heart, she understands it will serve Jihad:

    But by all means, keep believing that Islamophibia is just an irrational fear. Until you, yourself, get the full kaffir treatment.
