The Patriot Post® · Islam's Special Treatment

Dennis Prager: “Why do Western media … always deferentially refer to Muhammad as ‘the Prophet Muhammad’ in news articles and opinion pieces? When Jesus is mentioned, the media never refer to him as ‘Christ, the Lord’ or as ‘the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.’ Just ‘Jesus.’ In fact, ‘A.D.’ (‘anno Domini’ – ‘year of our Lord’) has been completely dropped by the very academics and media who always write ‘The Prophet Muhammad.’ … Before 9/11, the phrase ‘Allahu Akbar’ was translated as ‘Allah is great’ (or ‘the greatest’). Since 9/11, it has been translated as ‘God is great.’ This was deliberate. In 2004, the influential Associated Press Stylebook announced: ‘A new entry has been added to the AP Stylebook: Allah. The Muslim name for God. The word God should be used.’ … Whatever theological side one takes, the fact remains that after 9/11 Allah became ‘God’ in the Western world – in order to essentially show how similar Islam is to Judaism and Christianity. … Here’s the ultimate irony. These PC professors and news media who treat Islam so much better than any other religion are literally Islamophobic. They truly fear Islam.”
