BENEATH THE VEIL: A CLOSER LOOK AT ISLAMOPHOBIA

90 views

Published on

Following US president Donald Trump’s ascension to power, the world has seen a sharp rise in hate crimes against Muslims and other minorities.

A 2016 Georgetown University report documented the effects of Trump’s campaign rhetoric on his supporters. Whilst 2015 saw the sharpest increase in documented hate crimes (180 offences), new reports continue trickling into various watchdog sources.

As Trump fights to keep his travel ban in place and various US officials begin dialogue with foreign nationals, many are keeping a watchful eye on events surrounding the Muslim world.

The Charlie Hebdo, Bataclan, German Christmas Market, Orlando gay nightclub and other violent terrorist attacks have compounded societal divisions, spurring bitter resentment between various denominations of Western society, with secular and moderate Muslims caught in the crossfire.

Many are unsure as to how to ameliorate the crisis. Sections of the Left have tried to accommodate refugees fleeing hostile war zones within the MENA region, whilst far-right factions have pushed for legislation to close the borders and stave off further terrorist attacks. With no end in sight, all sides remain vigilant against new provocations.

The following SlideShare attempts to explain the root causes of Islamophobia.

About ALLRIOT:

Allriot is a sweatshop-free statement t-shirt website. We don't mince the words we say, or the designs we print.

This month we're taking on Islamophobia with our ACLU fundraiser campaign - #ThisMeansLove.

In light of Führer Trump’s disgraceful visa ban on six Muslim countries, we’ve decided to try a little ‘social experiment’ in order to expose the reactions of people towards Muslims, in the US, UK and elsewhere.

Your mission, should you accept, is to engage others by wearing it for a few days, especially in crowded places such as workplaces, malls, concerts, and throngs of bustling, open-mouthed gawkers, etc.

Try different methodologies. Lollygag. Hug your local Sheik. Flash mob (the more, the merrier). Most importantly, just be yourself, but stay safe. Record your observations using our template, either via a journal, blog, social media, video, or with an old-fashioned pen and paper.

In return, you’ll get some kickass free stuff, vouchers, a spot on our social media. The first 20 people to submit their entries will get a full reimbursement on their purchase.

50% of all will be donated to ACLU.

Good luck and happy hunting!

BENEATH THE VEIL: A CLOSER LOOK AT ISLAMOPHOBIA

  1. 1. 1. BENEATH THE VEIL: A CLOSER LOOK AT ISLAMOPHOBIA This explainer offers a few facts about the muslim ban and expresses solidarity with Allriot’s #ThisMeansLove campaign. 1.
  2. 2. US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslims is yet another stymied effort to push forth his ambitious immigration policy. Trump’s entire platform is a populist attempt to capitalise on the frustrations of America’s unemployment, racial divisions, and domestic and foreign policies, caused by previous administrations and escalated by his own. ISLAMOPHOBIC RHETORIC: WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL? 2. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  3. 3. ISLAMOPHOBIa in numbers: A closer look 3. AGE GROUPYougov Poll POLITICAL AFFILIATION In America, Trump appears to be the de facto cause of the country's rise in xenophobia. However, looking deeper into the numbers, one will find that the American Heartlands — the conservative, white, working-class types from the Bible belt and Midwest — form the core of anti-Muslim Americana. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  4. 4. 4. HOSTILITY TOWARD ISLAM IN AMERICA EXISTS ALONGSIDE A LACK OF FAMILIARITY WITH MUSLIMS The same YouGov poll also asked respondents the following questions: "Do you personally happen to work with anyone who is Muslim?” 70% said no. "Do you happen to have any friends who are Muslim?” 68% said no. "Have you ever been inside a mosque?" 87% aid no. 70% 68% 87% www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  5. 5. 5. A Georgetown University report released in May found that threats, intimidation and violence against Muslim Americans have surged over the course of the presidential election. ANTI-MUSLIM HATE CRIME: LINKS TO TRUMP
  6. 6. 6. Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric has caused a sharp rise in hate crimes across the US, where 180 were reported between March 2015-2016. 12 MURDERS 34 PHYSICAL ASSAULTS 56 ACTS OF VANDALISM The irony of Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric is that the candidate who promises to be tough on terror may be making America not only less safe for American Muslims, but for all Americans. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  7. 7. 2. MUSLIM BAN 101 7. Underneath the rhetoric of Trump’s ban are a long list of contradictions, loopholes, and complete mistruths. US President Donald Trump’s travel ban is an executive order (using Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101) that targets 6 (originally 7) predominantly Muslim coun- tries. The order places a 120-day ban on the US refugee programme, and a 90-day ban on citizens from the seven countries in question. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  8. 8. 8. COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY THE MUSLIM BAN Syria, Libya,Yemen, Sudan, Somalia & Iran. *In the revised version, Iraq was removed from the list. SUDAN LIBYA SYRIA IRAQ IRAN www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove US President Donald Trump’s travel ban is an executive order (using Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1101) that targets seven predominantly Muslim countries.

  9. 9. 9. Oh, by the way... All six countries have been attacked by the US and its allies in attempts to install neoliberal “democracy”, AKA colonialism, to prevent the death of the petrodollar. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  10. 10. 10. The list excludes Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan and Afghanistan; countries that have actually terrorised the United States or pose a security threat. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  11. 11. 11. Made IN USA Most American terrorists, especially in the last 5 years, were homegrown residents or naturalised citizens from countries not on the list. America has covered up Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks in order to target mostly secular, not Islamic, Ba’athist linked countries in the Middle East. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  12. 12. 12. So, what’s it all about? The purpose of the Muslim Ban was to subjugate oil-producing countries that stopped trading oil in USD (petrodollar). Libya, Iraq, Iran, Syria, India, Russia, China, and others no longer use USD to trade oil, which is destroying US control of oil markets; precisely why Trump chose to work with former ExxonMobile CEO Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State. www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove
  13. 13. 13. #ThisMeansLove ALLRIOT CAMPAIGN We’ve begun a social experiment to expose the general reactions of people towards Muslims across the world. Go to www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove to participate.
  14. 14. 14. At Allriot, we strongly believe that our tees are more than just a fashion statement; they’re also a great way to gauge public opinion and fire up some hearty conversation. We’re asking our customers, fans and followers to engage the public by wearing our “This Means Love” tee for a few days and record their experiences. 50% of all money raised will go to ACLU www.allriot.com/ThisMeansLove Join us!
