Is it Racist to Criticize Islam?


Is Ayaan Hirsi Ali a racist? She was born in Somalia, from which she escaped to avoid an arranged marriage, and she eventually became a member of Parliament in the Netherlands.

She helped produce a film with Theo Van Gogh which criticized Islam's treatment of women. Van Gogh was shot to death by a Muslim in retaliation, and a note was pinned to his chest with a knife — a note that threatened Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

She made her way to the United States, and has since written two books critical of Islam: Infidel and Nomad: From Islam to America: A Personal Journey Through the Clash of Civilizations.

Is Wafa Sultan a racist? She was born and raised in Syria, and was trained as a psychiatrist.

On February 21, 2006, she took part in an Al Jazeera discussion program, arguing with the hosts about Samuel P. Huntington's Clash of Civilizations theory. A six-minute composite video of her response was widely circulated on blogs and through email. The New York Times estimated it was seen at least one million times. In the video she criticized Muslims for treating non-Muslims differently, and for not recognizing the accomplishments of Jews and other non-Muslims. The video was the most-discussed video of all time with over 260,000 comments on YouTube.

Is Ibn Warraq a racist? Warraq was born in India to Muslim parents who migrated to Pakistan after the partitioning of British Indian Empire.

Warraq founded the Institute for the Secularisation of Islamic Society. He is a senior research fellow at the Center for Inquiry, focusing on Quranic criticism.

Warraq is the author of seven books, including Why I Am Not a Muslim and Leaving Islam. He has spoken at the United Nations "Victims of Jihad" conference organized by the International Humanist and Ethical Union alongside speakers such as Bat Ye'or, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Simon Deng.

Is Tapan Ghosh a racist? The president of Hindu Samhati, he speaks all over India and the United States about the ongoing Islamic invasion of West Bengal.

In an article about him, a correspondent wrote, "A life of 25 years of relentless service has strengthened the resolve of Tapan Ghosh to unite Hindu masses to fight against injustice and the oppressive attitude of the authorities in the face of ever-increasing Islamist aggression."

Ghosh said, "As someone who has suffered enormously from the Islamist onslaught in eastern India, both after the partition of India as well as the partition of erstwhile Pakistan to form Bangladesh, Islamic terrorism has deeply affected my life and the life of millions in the Indian subcontinent. The horrific events of 1971 where nearly 3 million Bengalis, mostly Hindus were exterminated by the Pakistani military regime left an everlasting impression on me. Since then, I have worked relentlessly for the service and upliftment of people reeling under the scourge of radical Islam."

Is Seyran Ates a racist? Born in Turkey of Kurdish parents, and now working as a lawyer in Germany, Atest is highly critical of an immigrant Muslim society that is often more orthodox than its counterpart in Turkey, and her criticisms have put her at risk.

Her book, "Islam Needs a Sexual Revolution," was scheduled for publication in Germany in 2009. In an interview in January 2008 on National Public Radio, Ates stated that she was in hiding and would not be working on Muslim women's behalf publicly (including in court) due to the threats against her.

Ates is the author of the article, Human Rights Before Religion: Have we forgotten to protect women in our bid to accommodate practices carried out in the name of Islam?

Is Francis Bok a racist? Francis Piol Bol Bok, born in Sudan, was a slave for ten years but is now an abolitionist and author living in the United States.

On May 15, 1986, Bok was captured and enslaved at age seven during an Islamic militia raid on the village of Nymlal. Slavery is a standard feature of orthodox Islam. Bok lived in bondage for ten years before escaping imprisonment in Kurdufan, followed by a journey to the United States by way of Cairo, Egypt. Read more of his story here.

Bok's autobiography, Escape from Slavery, chronicles his life from his early youth and his years in captivity, to his work in the United States as an abolitionist.

Is Nonie Darwish a racist? Now an American, she grew up a Muslim in Egypt, the daughter of an Egyptian general whose family was part of President Nasser’s inner circle.

Darwish founded Former Muslims United with Ibn Warraq, an organization dedicated, in part, to helping Muslims reject the inherent intolerance, violence, and supremacism in their doctrine.

Darwish is the author of two books critical of Islam, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law, and Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror.

And she is an outspoken critic of Sharia law.

Is Brigitte Gabriel a racist? She's an Arab, born in Lebanon. Gabriel watched her country become an Islamic state. Lebanon was a Christian country and "the jewel of the Middle East" when she was young. But the Muslims in Lebanon, supported by Syria and Iran, slowly became more militant until they turned the country into a war zone.

She made her way to America only to find, to her horror, the Muslim Brotherhood here in her newly adopted country, going down the same road. She decided to warn her fellow Americans about the dire results you can expect from appeasing orthodox Muslims, so she founded ACT! for America, a grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about Islam's prime directive.

Gabriel is the author of two books, They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It, and Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America.

Is Mark Gabriel a racist? Born in Egypt, he became an Islamic scholar in the Muslim world's most prestigious university. Early fears by relatives that Gabriel would grow up a Christian because he had been breastfed by a Christian woman resulted in him being given a thorough Islamic education. So he grew up immersed in Islamic culture and was sent to Al Azhar school at the age of six.

By the time Gabriel was twelve years old he had memorized the Quran completely. After graduating from Al-Azhar University with a Master's degree, he was offered a position as a lecturer at the university. During his research, which involved travel to Eastern and Western countries, Gabriel became more distant from Islam, finding its history, "from its commencement to date, to be filled with violence and bloodshed without any worthwhile ideology or sense of decency. I asked myself 'What religion would condone such destruction of human life?' Based on that, I began to see that the Muslim people and their leaders were perpetrators of violence."

On hearing that Gabriel had "forsaken Islamic teachings" the authorities of Al Azhar expelled him from the University on 17 December, 1991 and asked for him to be released from the post of Imam in the mosque of Amas Ebn Malek in Giza city. The Egyptian secret police then seized Gabriel and placed him in a cell without food and water for three days, after which he was tortured and interrogated for four days before being transferred to Calipha prison in Cairo and released without charge a week later. He escaped Egypt and has since written several books, including, Islam and Terrorism.

Is Walid Shoebat a racist? He's a Palestinian immigrant to the United States and a former PLO militant. Shoebat was born in Bethlehem, the grandson of the Mukhtar of Beit Sahour, an associate of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. In 1993, Shoebat converted to Christianity after studying the Jewish Bible for six months in response to a challenge from his wife, initially trying to persuade her to convert to Islam.

After the September 11 attacks in 2001, Shoebat began to criticize Islam publicly. He has appeared on mainstream media around the world and has been an expert witness on a number of documentaries on orthodox Islam.

Shoebat argues that parallels exist between radical Islam and Nazism. He says, "Secular dogma like Nazism is less dangerous than Islamofascism that we see today...because Islamofascism has a religious twist to it; it says 'God the Almighty ordered you to do this'...It is trying to grow itself in fifty-five Muslim states. So potentially, you could have a success rate of several Nazi Germanys, if these people get their way."

Is Simon Deng a racist? He was born in southern Sudan. His village of Tonga was a peaceful farming community, despite frequent raids by the Islamic Sudanese army where they burned huts and scattered livestock. "One of the first things I was told as a child — if the Arab men come, just run for your life," Deng recalls. The history of Arab colonization of Africa is one of Islamization, wholesale slave trading, and genocide. One day the Muslims came, and Deng was captured and enslaved.

At the age of 12, he noticed a man from his village due to the man's "shilluk" — a series of raised welts across the forehead. It's a tribal marking Deng has also. The man summoned a distant relative of Deng's who happened to be nearby. With his kinsman's help, the boy was able to escape.

Having escaped slavery and emigrated to the United States, Deng travels the country addressing audiences which range from the United Nations to middle school students. His speeches focus on education and the anti-slavery movement. Deng is now a warner of the horrors of unchecked Islam and Sharia. "I was victimized in the name of Islam," he says.

Is Babu Suseelan a racist? Born in India, Professor Babu Suseelan is a Hindu leader, a human rights activist, a university professor, and a psychologist. He is also the Director of Indian American Intellectuals Forum, New York.

Suseelan is the author of several published articles on jihadi terrorism and cognitive psychology. He has been an invited speaker at international conferences on Islamic militancy.

He speaks around the world, trying to educate people about orthodox Islam and the danger it poses to the free world.

Is Walid Phares a racist? Phares was born in Lebanon, where he earned degrees in law, political science and sociology. He then earned a Master's degree in International Law from the Université de Lyon in France and a Ph.D. in international relations and strategic studies from the University of Miami. He emigrated to the United States in 1990.

Phares has testified before committees of the U.S. State, Justice, Defense and Homeland Security Departments, the United States Congress, the European Parliament, the United Nations Security Council.

His writings expose the political nature embedded in Islamic doctrine, and seeks to find solutions to the problems that presents the West. His books include, The Confrontation: Winning the War against Future Jihad, and The War of Ideas: Jihadism against Democracy.

Is Zeyno Baran a racist? Baran is a Turkish-American scholar and Director of the Center for Eurasian Policy.

One of Baran's key areas of specialization is countering the spread of radical Turkish Islamist ideology in Europe and Eurasia.

Baran has criticized European and American governments for working too closely with groups or individuals that espouse an Islamist ideology. She argues that such engagement actually works against U.S. and European interests.

Baran recently wrote an article for The Weekly Standard on this very subject. In it, she advocates a kind of "litmus test" for deciding who and what type of Muslim groups the U.S. government should engage with. Baran argues that "the deciding factor must be ideology: Is the group Islamist or not?" She believes that the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizbullah, and Hizb ut-Tahrir fail her test.

Is M. Zuhdi Jasser a racist? He's the President and Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. A devout Muslim, Jasser founded AIFD in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on the United States as an effort to provide an American Muslim voice advocating for the preservation of the founding principles of the United States Consitution, liberty and freedom, and the separation of mosque and state.

A former Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy, Jasser served 11 years as a medical officer. He is a nationally recognized expert in the contest of ideas against Political Islam and American Islamist organizations. On October 1, 2009, Jasser briefed members of Congress on the threat of Political Islam. He regularly briefs members of the House and Senate congressional anti-terror caucuses.

Is Magdi Allam a racist? Allam was born in Egypt and raised by Muslim parents. His mother Safeya was a believing and practicing Muslim, whereas his father Muhammad was "completely secular." He became a journalist and outspoken critic of "Islamic extremism."

In 2005, Allam published an article calling for a ban on building mosques in Italy. In a piece accusing mosques of fostering hate, he claimed Italy is suffering from "mosque-mania."

In a public letter to the editor, Allam stated that Islam was inseparable from Islamic extremism. Criticising Islam itself, rather than Islamic extremism, Allam argued: "I asked myself how it was possible that those who, like me, sincerely and boldly called for a 'moderate Islam,' assuming the responsibility of exposing themselves in the first person in denouncing Islamic extremism and terrorism, ended up being sentenced to death in the name of Islam on the basis of the Quran. I was forced to see that, beyond the contingency of the phenomenon of Islamic extremism and terrorism that has appeared on a global level, the root of evil is inherent in an Islam that is physiologically violent and historically conflictive."

Is Farshad Kholghi a racist? Born in Iran, he remembers the time before the Islamic Revolution, when Shah Reza Palahvi reigned supreme and the country was on a staunch Western direction, with extensive developments in infrastructure, industry, education, and health care.

Farshad Kholghi is a well known figure from public debates in Denmark. As is the case for most everyone debating Islam, he has been accused of racism (which, given his ethnicity, is ironic), and of presenting "right-wing" political views. 
Farshad rhetorically inquired: "Is it 'right-wing' to stand for womens' rights? Is it 'right-wing' to criticize religion? Is it 'right-wing' to defend freedom of expression? Is it 'right-wing' to defend the right of the individual over that of the ideology? If so, then yes, I present right-wing political views.

Farshad strongly encourages participating in public debate, to not fear religious fanaticism, but rather to ridicule them and their abuse of power through the application of the best of Western values, including open discussion, scrutiny of Islamic organizations and the healthy tradition of satire and ridicule of hypocritical, corrupt and exploitative religious leaders.

Is Bassam Tibi a racist? Born in Syria, Tibi is now a German citizen. He is a Muslim and a political scientist and Professor of International Relations. Tibi is a staunch critic of Islamism and an advocate of reforming Islam itself. In academia, he is known for his analysis of international relations and the introduction of Islam to the study of international conflict and of civilization.

Tibi had eighteen visiting professorships in all continents. Tibi was visiting senior fellow at Yale University when he retired in 2009. The same year, he published his life's work, a book entitled, Islam's Predicament with Cultural Modernity.

Is Khaled Abu Toameh a racist? Toameh was born in the West Bank in 1963 to an Israeli Arab father and a Palestinian Arab mother. He received his BA in English Literature from the Hebrew University and lives in Jerusalem with his wife and three children.

Toameh was formerly a senior reporter for The Jerusalem Report, and a correspondent for Al-Fajr, which he describes as a mouthpiece for the PLO. He has produced several documentaries on the Palestinians for the BBC, Channel 4, Australian, Danish and Swedish TV, including ones that exposed the connection between Arafat and payments to the armed wing of Fatah, as well as the financial corruption within the Palestinian Authority.

He was the first journalist to report about the sex scandal that rocked the Palestinian Authority in early 2010 and which led to the firing of Rafiq Husseini, Chief of Staff for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The scandal was revealed by former Palestinian intelligence official Fahmi Shabaneh in an exclusive interview with Toameh in The Jerusalem Post. One of Toameh's more famous articles is, Where Are the Voices of "Moderate" Muslims?

Is Tawfik Hamid a racist? He was born in Egypt and became a member of the militant Islamic organization, al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya. After a change of heart, Hamid started to preach in mosques to promote a message of peace, which made him a target of Islamic militants who threatened his life. Hamid then migrated to the West where he has lectured at UCLA, Stanford University, University of Miami and Georgetown University against Islamic fundamentalism.

In a 2009 Wall Street Journal article, Hamid said that Islam should prove it's a religion of peace, and called Islamic scholars and clerics, "to produce a Shariah book that will be accepted in the Islamic world and that teaches that Jews are not pigs and monkeys, that declaring war to spread Islam is unacceptable, and that killing apostates is a crime."

Hamid has written opinion pieces for The Wall Street Journal, including Islam Needs To Prove It's A Religion Of Peace, How to End Islamophobia and The Trouble with Islam.

Okay, this list of prominent critics of Islam could go on indefinitely. If you think criticizing Islam is racist, can you tell me exactly what race they are all criticizing? Of course not. Calling criticism of Islam "racist" is a manipulative, underhanded slander. The accurate name is "critic." All the people above are engaged in religious criticism, criticism of an ideology, and political commentary, all of which are desirable, necessary, vital components of a free society.

Some people who criticize Islam are racists. That does not mean criticizing Islam is racism. It's also true that some people who criticize Islam are socialists, but it would be foolish to say criticizing Islam is socialism.

Islam is not a race. There are Muslims of every race. The largest Muslim country is Indonesia. There are more non-Arab Muslims than Arab Muslims. Criticism of Islam is not racism.

Most people trying to silence criticism of Islam know full well Islam is not a race. But the slander is effective in the free world. The mere implication can ruin a political career or get someone fired. So while it's not true — and most people saying it know it's not true — it is an effective weapon of censorship nonetheless.

I hope this list, once and for all, will make anyone who says "criticizing Islam is racist" look ridiculous. I hope this removes that absurd slur from public conversation forevermore. Am I hoping for too much? Every time you read or hear anyone using "racism" to silence criticism of Islam, respond with this list and see what happens.

Very good information.

Now I just wanted to ask is Osama a racist?

Oh! He is a misguided Muslim, media loves to say this.

Is Saudi Arabia a racist country? It is a misguided country.

Is Sharia law racist esp. with all its discrimination against infidels?

Is Koran a racist document? They say, no because 1.5 billion people hold it sacred. So what, it paints all non Muslims as bad and evil and inferior.

To ask or say these things is enough for media to label me a racist as they did it to all wonderful people mentioned above.

Citizen Warrior 11:16 PM  

Someone just emailed this comment:

Criticizing Islam is not racist as Islam is an ideology such as communism, and Islam/Muslims are not a race of people. We all have things in life that we dislike and/or disapprove of and in a free society have the right to criticize, comment and express abject horror of an ideology that preaches hate and murder. Hope this helps.

From an article entitled Weeping and Other Hysterics:

"Of course, if a person of any color goes on a random shooting spree, it would be racist to pin it on his race. But if a person of any color goes on a shooting spree — while waving the Koran, screaming Allahu Akbar, or otherwise rationalizing his actions in Islamic terms, as did Nidal Hasan — then we are talking about a shooting spree motivated by a learned ideology or worldview that has nothing to do with the shooter's race."

Bat Ye'or is one of the most outspoken and serious "racists". So is VS Naipaul. There are many ways of exposing the fallacy of the growth of Islam.
Perhaps there are many more courageous people who should be on the list and who are not even known. Fighting openly is detrimental or misunderstood in many scenarios. I think that the ones who are fighting obliquely are the ones who have more chances of bringing down this hideous and tyrannical edifice.

Liz Wagner 8:09 AM  

The "racists" are those who make the accusation against these courageous individuals. For in doing so, they deny the ethnic backgrounds and first-hand experiences of these heroes and heroines that make them some of the world's most knowledgable critics of Islam alive today.

While this is still America it is my God given right to speak freely no matter who disagrees with what I say. It is even someone else's right to be a racist if that's what they believe. Pre political correctness there was a term for people who beheaded others and justified murder, they were called barbarians. The sad fact of the matter is, if the majority sleeps away their freedom, all people will suffer the consequences. Paul G. Peek

Anonymous 10:30 PM  

I just participated in a small demonstration against Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the driving force behind the Ground Zero Mosque in New York City. Imam Rauf spoke at a "Christian" Conference in Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately there were only a few demonstrators. The "Christians" going in to hear Imam Rauf didn't want to be bothered with details such as the death of 3,000 innocents on 9-11, they were unconcerned that Islam has as one of its goals the annihilation of the Jewish people, they didn't care that under Shariah Law, thousands are being slaughtered for apostasy, and that women are being executed for having been raped. They were unconcerned that Christians are being murdered throughout the Middle East because of Islamic hegemony. The sad thing was that as they smugly carried their Bibles inside of their Gucci bags, along with their state of the art cell phones and I Pads, in their open minded pursuit of "truth", they the blindly overlooked the homeless men and women who call that particular part of town home. They pompously walked by them and us, unconcerned by the realities of Islamic violence, and untouched by the reality of the suffering surrounding them.

Madoc McFie 4:17 AM  

Paul is certainly headed in the right direction. I would go further, though. Radical Islam is beyond barbaric, which in its original usage simply meant "foreign" but in a superior, snooty, culturally-offended sort of way. If we paint it accurately from the perspective of Christian world view, Islam is simply demonic. That is a spiritual malady from which some of them are beyond rescue. But, it is a fatal condition secularists cannot diagnose because they can't even see it. It is, rather, discerned only spiritually. And, if one cannot see it, that means he also is dying and in need of resuscitation.

Anonymous 5:07 AM  

Thank you for this wonderful article. Its unfortunate that the so called mainstream media either ignore or hide these courageous individuals and their messages. After 9-11 I decided to read as much as I could about Islam to try and understand for myself what the truth was. I read Brigitte Gabriel, Nonie Darwish and Wafa Sultan's excellent books and was shocked that their stories did not match what was being reported in the press and by the government. I chose these Authors primarily because of their Islamic backgrounds in an attempt to get an unbiased perspective of Islam. I have continued to gather as much information as I can from as many sources possible, including several of the individuals listed here. I support all of the individuals listed in your article and commend them for their bravery for speaking the truth.

I cringe when I see one of those "COEXIST" stickers on the bumper of a car because I know we as Americans are very accepting of other religions and cultures and in a perfect world we could ALL coexist peacefully. I realize that not everyone wishes to coexist with anyone of another religion or culture. Unfortunately as a result, I feel we will continue to be targets of Jihad, Both violent and subversive.

It's very simple:
One may criticize communism or democracy, and this person is not racist! He isn't criticizing any people at all, he criticizing and ideology. Some people, who've chosen this ideology as their way of life may be offended by it - but it is exactly the same as criticizing a party, and the people who support the party would be offended by it.

Criticizing muslims may turn to be racist, but none of the people mentioned above do that!

The west must distinguish between the two kinds of criticism which may be made - criticism of an ideology on one hand, and criticism of a group of people on the other hand.

Denis MacEoin 11:32 AM  

Damien is perfectly correct to point out that it's not racist to criticize Islam since it's a religion. I would go further and argue that Islam is not just a religion, but is an ideology that encompasses detailed rulings on government, the conquest of non-Muslim territory, the treatment of non-Muslims, the fighting of war in its jihad form, economics, taxation, the identity and character of the true ruler, property, investment without usury, dress, and much besides. To say that criticizing any of this is 'racist' is clearly absurd. And to say we may not raise issues about any of these topics because Islam is part of the picture (through divine sanction or commandment) drains away the most essential of the modern West: the obligation to criticize all religions and political ideologies. If Muslims engage in da'wa, then they must accept the quid pro quo that carries: that we, as objects of their proselytization, have the right to point out deficiencies in their arguments and assumptions.

Issmaeel, we're talking about Islamic doctrine -- what is written in the Koran and the Hadith. Don't follow it and you can hold your head up high.

This is the kind of stuff non-Muslims don't like about Islam:

Shimona from the Palace 1:01 AM  

Unfortunately, certain countries, whose lawmakers DO understand that Islam is not a race, extended the legal definition for "hate crimes" to include "crimes" against a religion (as in the UK). So in those countries, if you speak up against Islam, you're guilty of inciting "race hatred".

No. It is not racist, it is culturist. Multiculturalists call people 'racist' any time they point out that cultural diversity is wide; that is, it can actually include bad characteristics as well as good ones. Culturists take cultural diversity seriously.

Racism is stupid. But, if cultural diversity is real, culturism is rational. No?

tranquil 8:59 PM  

Issmaeel Ali - welcome to the blog!

I can easily show you why many non-Muslims don't like Islam.

I quote from this very blog -

Quote - "In other words, every single one of the verses in the Quran with a positive message for non-Muslims is abrogated, leaving nothing positive for non-Muslims. Not one verse.

So there is nothing positive in the Quran for non-Muslims. Period. And there are 527 verses in the Quran that are intolerant to non-Muslims, 109 verses calling on Muslims to make war on non-Muslims."

That page has the links to those verses too so you can see them for yourself.

You will probably have been told that "all of Islam's wars were defensive wars".
This is not true.

Here are a couple of examples -

The Battle of Tours -

That battle was fought by Muslim armies *invading* what is now France.

The Siege of Vienna -

That siege was by Ottoman (Muslim) armies *invading* Europe.

See? Both of those war campaigns were *offensive* campaigns by the Muslims, not defensive actions.

Oh, and I haven't even mentioned how Islam swept across North Africa, across Persia (Iran) through Afghanistan and into India.

Timur / Tamerlane (a Muslim warlord) was one of the cruellest and most evil men who ever lived.

Quote - "Timur had his forces butcher in cold blood 100,000 Hindu prisoners accumulated while advancing toward Delhi."

One hundred thousand people.
*That* is barbaric savagery.

You will have been told that us "infidels" are horrible nasty people.
Not so.

When a Muslim country has an earthquake, who are the first rescuers there?
The "nasty horrible" infidels.

When a Muslim country has a tsunami or flood, who are the first rescuers there?
The "nasty horrible" infidels.

You have done *well* to come here!

You have been told many lies by the imams.
You can learn the TRUTH by coming to sites like this one.

Here is a site that has testimonies by *former* Muslims (who saw the lies and evil in Islam and who left) -

You should add Hamed Abdel-Samad. He was born in Egypt as a son of an imam. Later he studied in germany and wrote many critical books about islam which he is calling a fascist system.
