Terminological Antagonism Against Islam

Islam have been facing several direct and indirect attacks from every facets its enviers. Among that attacks is the prevalent attack of adhering defamatory terms with the word "Islam" such as Islamic terrorism, Islamic extremism, radical Islam, islamphobia, Islamic fashion, love jihad etc.

In order to know who are inventing these terms, first of all we have to understand that who are prevailing these terms throughout the world. So, it goes without saying that these terms are spreading throughout the world with the help of electronic and print media. And who are controlling the media, can easily be understand with the statement of Mr. Roger Lambelin, who once remarked, "What of the big newspapers of all countries, controlled directly or influenced indirectly by the great Jewish capitalists, through intermediaries, editors, information agencies, or publicity! Try to advertise in the big press, or even in so-called nationals journals of Paris, London, New-York, Vienna or Rome, a publication which clearly shows the action of Israel and its imperialism, and you will see what kind of welcome it will receive."  (Les Victoria d'IsraCl)

Since, it is obvious from the above statement that Jews are controlling the world media. Hence, certainly they are the real culprits behind terminological flouting of the religions because it is in their nature to insult a person or a religion using different kinds of defamatory terms.

We found a plenty of allusions about this nature of Jews in The Holy Quran. It is reported,
"...say not [to Allah's Messenger], "Ra'ina" but say, "Unzurna" and listen...(2:104)

The word "ra'ina" in Arabic literally means "consider us", i.e., give us time to hear you and listen to us. The Jews used to use the same word with the meaning of an insult. Therefore, the believers (Muslims) were ordered to avoid this expression and use instead the word "unzurna" i.e., "wait for us (so that we may understand).

Again describing this nature of Jews, The Holy Quran reported in an unprecedented way,
"Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] places [i.e., usage] and say, "We hear and disobed" and "Hear but not heard" and "Ra'ina", twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. [4:46]
Similarly, many of historical evidence simplifies the whole story behaind prevailing and eradicating of terms by the Jews.

The term Zionism first appeared at the end of the nineteenth century, denoting the movement whose goal was the return of the Jewish people to Palestine. It was coined by Mathan Birnbaum (a Jew) in Journals Selbstemanzipation of April 1, 1890. (see Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol.16 (1971) p.1031)

In the same way, the terms they disliked and feels a defamation against their religion can easily be eradicated by their stringent policies or by introducing a new term adverse to the given terms.

This is what the Mr.H.H.Beamish said,
"In 1848 the word "anti-Semitic" was invented by the Jews to prevent use of the word 'Jew'. (H.H.Beamish, In a New York address, October 30 - November 1, 1937)

Similarly, under the heading of "A brief History of the terms for a Jew" in the 1980 Jewish Almanac is the following:

"Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew and Israelite or a Hebrew." (1980 Jewish Almanac, p.3)

Once I have downloaded a guide for Book Selectors, Reviewers and Award Judges from website of Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL). Under the topic, evaluating children's books of Jewish content, sensitivity, a clear dissuasion is written to the authors,

"The use of christological terms like "A.D" and "Old Testament" should be avoided along with Christian interpretations of the Bible and proselytizing ."

So it is our imperative responsibility to enact at least a world-wide Jihad bil-Qalam (Jihad with the Pen) against all these hatred and enmity of terminological antagonism. Otherwise a time will come when they may cross the limits of enviousness by introducing terms like Islamic cinema, Islamic pornography, Islamic pops, Islamic robbery etc, which are as far from the teachings of Islam as the earth and the heavens.
