IHRC - It's All Our Fault

The Chairman of the Islamic Human Righst Commission, Massoud Shadjareh, has said that the Home Secretary's request that Muslim parents keep an eye on their children to stop them being brainwashed was, "not demanded from any other community", according to the BBC. He went on to say that the government was the root cause of Islamic terrorism.

Frankly, I'm getting tired of this sort of thing. Of course Muslims are being targetted, whether by politicians, police, media etc. And the reason is so shockinly obvious; they are the problem. Or at least, the problem emerges from their community. Why on earth would John Reid go to a Jewish group and tell them to keep an eye on their kids? Their children do not blow up London Buses.

Perhaps Mr Shadjareh needs to read his own words. The Muslim community "needs to come out of this state of denial, stop pointing fingers at others and instead recognise the root causes and its own responsibility."

Anyway, after I read this I decided to check the IHRC website, see what they are up to. The main thing going on at the moment is the "Islamaphobia Awards". A nice list of people has been drawn up, worth checking just for the humour value of some of the entries. The usual suspects are there but there are a couple of shock entries. My personal favourite is the "Coalition of pro-Israel Hollywood stars". The reason given for their Islamophobia is "For marching against Hizbullah and Hamas whilst the Lebanon and Gaza offensives were still on."

Might I suggest that anyone who sees this go to the site and vote for no-one. You may also consider making your own nomination. Perhaps Osama bin Laden for giving Muslims a bad name. Or Ahmadinejad or Abu Izzadeen etc. You get the idea.
