Fear, Inc. 2.0: The Islamophobia Network’s Efforts to Manufacture Hate in America
In 2011, the Center for American Progress published “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America” in order to identify and expose the organizations, scholars, pundits, and activists comprising a tightly linked network that spread misinformation and hateful propaganda about American Muslims and Islam. The report found that seven charitable foundations spent $42.6 million between 2001 and 2009 to support the spread of anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Islamophobia in the United States takes many shapes and forms. It takes the form of a general climate of fear and anger toward American Muslims, as seen in the “civilization jihad” narrative, the religious right’s rhetoric, and the biased media coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing. It comes out in cynical political efforts to capitalize on this climate of fear, as seen in state-level anti-Sharia bills introduced across the country and in far-right politicians’ grandstanding. And perhaps most dangerously, it manifests itself in institutional policies that view American Muslims as a threat, as seen in the FBI training manuals that profile Islam as a religion of violence.

The Jew is busily working and successfully so, turning Americans into carbon-copies of Israelis, filled with an obscene hatred of anything Arab or Muslim and if the Jew can craftily turn that hate against Palestinians, so much the better.
Sharia hysteriaThe Jew spreads lies about the peace-loving Muslims by hiding that hate behind more lies about 'anti-Semitism' rising in the West, especially the USA.
The Islamophobia network mis-characterizes Sharia as a totalitarian ideology of hate and triumphalism committed to replacing the U.S. Constitution with a radical Islamist caliphate that will subordinate and punish all non-Muslim adherents.
