Nomenclature of Deception by Ibn Iftikhâr
October 21, 2007 11 Comments
Brother Abû Yûnus I’jâz ibn Iftikhâr of Utah had sent out an email last night on one of the mailing lists I’m a member of containing links to a nice article he had written. I had first seen this article on brother Jalal Abualrub’s site and is now also available on CalltoIslam’s site (PDF). The article is from the appendicies from a book he compiled titled Victory is for Islâm: Glad Tidings for Muslims, which is printed and avaible. Those who want the original article from the book can download it from this link (PDF, right click & save as). From the article:
There has been a long trend in the media circles, both print and broadcast, on using specific terminologies to vilify and depreciate Islām and Muslims and disseminate their false propaganda globally; it is geared more so towards Islām, simply because the neo-cons and media spinners realize that Islām is more of a threat than any Muslim towards their self-gratifying, opportunistic agendas for world domination. The terms I am alluding to are: “radical Islam”, “militant Islam”, “Islamic men”, “puritanical brand of Islam”, “Wahhabism,” “ultra-conservative view of Islam” “Islamic militants,” “violent jihad,” etcetera.
This form of deception is not limited to employing the oft-repeated, oft-quoted term “fundamentalism/fundamentalist” anymore (e.g., Muslim fundamentalist, etc.). Now, we have a vast myriad of catchwords and catchphrases utilized by the [pro-Zion, Illuminati-controlled] mainstream media as well as self-appointed “experts” on Islām andِ terrorism who write books not in order to educate people but in order to mar the image of Islām and instill enmity and animosity in the minds of the readers and thereby dissuade people from being tolerant towards it, let alone approaching it with an open-mind or embracing it. The growth and proliferation of such literature has increased exponentially to such a level that I have resolved to amalgamate and conglomerate these highly-charged anti-Islāmic, anti-Muslim terms under the blanket phrase “nomenclature of deception.”
