Is Islam an enemy? The current ideologies tend to associate it with the figure of the jihadist Muslim and, as journalist Rosa Maria Calaf says, it is the main cause of that rejection and mistrust towards Muslims. Actually, here is from where Europe y la islamofobia” is inspired on the by giving view from peace, where Esteban Ibarra, from the Movement against Intolerance and the journalist and politician Giuletto Chiesa will be sharing in the Foro social. During this seventh round of Rototom Sunsplash, the debate will discuss the situation of this type of discrimination against Muslim figure and culture.
“We must be able to discern what is the Islam of terrorism,” said Esteban Ibarra as believing it to be the main cause of Islamophobia. This cause reffers to the fact that a person, just for beeing Muslim, can be awarded with discriminent features that are not even theirs, such as terrorism. Hostility and rejection, that ends up being the only result of not knowing how to separate things from one another; not knowing what lies beyond. Ignorance and prejudices .But Islamophobia, as well underlines Ibarra and Chiesa is starting to get used as a instrumentalization and the jihadist terrorism cant be used to feed this hate, warns Ibarra. Chiesa showed herself incredibly critical witg the need that only has the goal to terrorize and manipulate society. Do they create such hate to perpetuate their power ?, he asks.
