According to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Islamophobia actually leads to terrorism. Here’s the story from The Blaze:
On a visit to Saudi Arabia Sunday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters that “Islamophobia” is fueling terrorism.
“One of the things that fuel terrorism is the expression in some parts of the world of Islamophobic feelings and Islamophobic policies and Islamophobic hate speeches,” …
“This is sometimes the best support that Daesh can have to make its own propaganda,”
Response: Really? Which came first, terrorism or Islamophobia? Before Islamists started attacking America and Western nations no one was really paying any attention to Islam or making any disparaging remarks about radical Muslims.
This statement is almost as crazy as the UN pronouncement a while back that historically Jerusalem belonged to Muslims and Jews had no ties at all with the Temple Mount.
