On 18th of May, BBC ran an article on its website with the headline, “Muslim woman’s cheeky selfie with anti-Islam group goes viral.”.The article by Anisa Zubedar began with the line, “When hijab-wearing Zakia Belkhiri saw members of a far-right anti-Islam group protesting outside an Islamic lifestyle event she was attending in Belgium she responded like a true Millennial.” Needless to say, the Islamophobia Brigade jumped at the opportunity to further their agenda and hailed the ‘bravery’ of the girl, Zakia Belkhiri.
Quite obvious it is that it did not take any exceptional display of courage and bravery for Zakia Belkhiri since most of the people protesting against the Islamization of their countries in Europe are ordinary everyday folks without any propensity for violence. Compared to her, the women who protest against the archaic oppression by removing their Hijab or Burkha are far more courageous as they actually run the risk of being assaulted by members of their own community.
There was a further twist in the tale yet, in addition to the ‘cheeky selfies’ there was one more thing that went viral and unfortunately for the Liberal Brigade, it meant after Hoax boy Ahmed, another of their hero in their fight against Islamophobia bit the dust. It was a tweet by Zakia Belkhiri that read, “Hitler didnt kill all the Jews, he left some. So we know why he was killing them #fuckrs“.
The blatant bit of Institutionalized anti-Semitism was overwhelmingly evident in her tweet that dates back to 29 November, 2012. It begs our attention that ever so often, people who cry against Islamophobia the loudest, they have too many skeletons to hide in their closet.
The troubling aspect about the whole circus is how Zakia Belkhiri wants everyone to coexist with Islam but merrily ignores that it’s in fact the other way around.
It’s Western Civilization which embraced the values of Multiculturalism to accommodate Islamic values but it is Islam’s refusal to integrate with Western ideals that’s the source of most of the problems.
World Media once again showcased all the reasons why people have exhausted all their patience with them and the faith in the media is at an all-time low. Without verifying the identity of the woman and running a casual background check of the Holocaust endorsing woman, they latched on to the incident which suited their narrative without any inhibition. The incident has once again displayed how easy it is for closet Jihadis to manipulate the media according to their whims without the slightest bit of risk. It is a terrible state of affairs that indicate the Media is willing to highlight any event that suits their narrative without making the slightest bit of effort to verify the possible motive behind such a protest in these troubled times.
Western Media Outlets have quite explicitly discarded their cloak of neutrality and devoted the entirety of their existence to the realization of Leftist Ideals. They hardly ever miss a beat whenever a flimsy case of Anti-Muslim bigotry comes along but turn a blind eye to the numerous Islamic atrocities that demand their immediate attention. The alarm bells should have rung at all the Media headquarters after their hero Hoaxboy Ahmed as nicknamed by Richard Dawkins himself took a great fall. But once again, Media has proved they simply lack the will and the motivation and also the incentive in monetary terms to mend their ways.
To say Western Media is not racist would be a plain denial of reality as was quite obvious from BBC’s Twitter Poll that incurred the wrath of thousands of people. The Poll asked the question, “Should India abandon its snake charming culture and embrace modernity?” Thus, BBC has shown that its racism is reserved towards groups which do not warrant violent repercussions.
The Western Media has refrained from lending their support to the numerous Muslim Anti-Hijab Activists who exhibit a tremendous amount of courage in violating social norms in communities where violence is often used as a means to enforce them. The Western Media also refuses to lend support to liberal Muslim Reformers who attempt to strip Islam of its violent aspects and moderate it to represent a Spiritual Quest. The Western Media also refuses to highlight the horrors of Multiculturalism and the chaos it has wreaked on the lives of so many.
Western Media Outlets have failed exquisitely in highlighting the ongoing crisis in Europe as a result of the influx of millions of refugees which verily threaten the European way of life. Instead of making serious efforts to understand the reasons behind the increasing protests against the Islamization of Europe, it endorses every single little event that seeks to undermine the concerns of the millions of Europeans regarding the fate of their nation. It merrily ignores the speeches of Geert Wilders, leader of the Right-wing Freedom Party in the Netherlands, who has repeatedly asserted with facts and figures that the Muslim communities in Molenbeek were shielding Salah Abdeslam, the Logistics chief of the Paris Attacks and did not hand him over to the Police even when they were fully aware of his presence. The Media also refuses to acknowledge the rising support for ISIS among the migrants streaming into Europe and the violent crimes which has sparked massive Anti-Islam protests in the West.
Zakia Belkhiri told BBC Trending that she took the photos “to show that things can be different. And that we can live together, not next to each other but with each other.” Well, Zakia Belkhiri, instead of preaching to the Western World about coexistence, if you and other Muslims screaming against Islamophobia had spent more time preaching to the Islamic world to reject the concept of violent Jihad integral to Islam, swear allegiance to the nation state Muslims are living in instead of the Pan-Islamic identity, abide by the laws of the land instead of demanding Sharia laws in Western countries, conform to Social Norms of the West instead of attempting to enforce Islamic values on the rest, yes, I truly believe things could be different. Until then, preaching against Islamophobia by a Holocaust cheering Anti-Semite will continue to lose further credibility.
