10 Lies You Were Told About Islam

10 Lies You Were Told About Islam 10) Muslims hate the West Christian online news publication ‘Now The End Begins’, which has over 150,000 followers, stated that ‘all Muslim children are taught to hate the West’ An extensive survey conducted by the Institute of Social Policy and Understanding contradicts this theory, however

The study involved asking 50,000 Muslims across 35 countries: ‘What do you admire most about the West?’ Research found that this idea of widespread negative opinion toward the Western world is completely false, and only 2% of Muslims in Iran and 6% in Saudi Arabia said they admired nothing Source: Huffington Post 9) Terrorist Training Camps Martin Mawyer [Moy-yuh], founder of the anti-Islam ‘Christian Action Network', claimed that secret camps exist across America, training Muslims for terrorist activity In his book ‘Twilight in America’ he describes the town of Islamberg in New York that supposedly holds bunkers, automatic weapons, and an airfield where Muslims can receive training Islamberg is in fact just a tranquil town of 40 families, founded in the 1980s by African American Muslims escaping racism from New York City Mawyer’s claims were quashed by the New York State Police, who explained that ‘the state police were invited to their lands

I don’t know any other place where, if something nefarious was occurring, they would willingly invite law enforcement officers to come and have lunch’ Source: CBS News 8) No Go Zones In January 2015 KT McFarland, the National Security Analyst for Fox News, exposed the existence of 750 no go zones across France She revealed that the areas prohibit non-Muslims from entering, and operate under strict Sharia Law, where ambulances have access only by police escort McFarland’s statements were found to be pure speculation, as these supposed ‘no-go zone’ areas were simply towns that French authorities prioritized for urban renewal and state aid Subsequently, the Paris city council approved a lawsuit to sue Fox News for reporting ‘such nonsense’

ISIS represents Islam one hundred percent’ In reality, ISIS is not just Un-Islamic, it is Anti-Islamic, and in the first 8 months of 2015, ISIS was responsible for the deaths of over 9000 Muslims in Iraq The terror organization has also claimed responsibility for repeatedly bombing mosques across the Middle East Source: National Review 4) Muslims support violence The Center for Security Policy, a US think tank known for engaging in conspiracy theories, claimed that 25% of Muslim Americans support violence against other Americans Donald Trump subsequently used this statistic during his presidential campaign

Emerson proceeded to claim that the city of Birmingham in England is entirely Muslim, and non-Muslims are banned from entering Emerson’s statement has been disproven by the UK National Office of Statistics, which states that only 145% of Birmingham residents are Muslim In response to the vastly incorrect claims, Prime Minister David Cameron said ‘frankly, I choked on my porridge and thought it must be April Fool’s Day This guy’s clearly a complete idiot’
