Today I came across the article at the following link, in which a Sydney mosque claims to have had it’s “good reputation” tarnished – merely because it auctioned a flag associated with the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group.
Note the statement from the mosque:
“We reject any attempts to tarnish the good reputation of our centre and pledge to stand firm against the current wave of Islamophobia. We also believe that scapegoating and fear mongering has the serious potential of radicalising disaffected youth.”.
Maybe if these people were more eager to stand against the so-called “extremists” and their demonic actions there would be less “Islamophobia”.
And it is interesting that the “radicalising of disaffected youth” that leads to the involvement in terrorist activities is being blamed on the rest of society and not on the kind of mosques that would seek to capitalise on the sale of a flag identified with the atrocities currently being committed in Iraq and Syria
