The Trigger of Islamic Phobias
Norman Daniel has conducted a study of the image of Islam produced by Western intellectuals from the 12th century until the mid-14th century. In his book Islam and the West, Norman Daniel explained the pattern of arguments used to attack Islam at that time.
Among them are accusations that Islam is a false religion, which was spread by false prophets, who spread it by means of violence. Since then, Islam has been associated with violence, a theme that will be repeated over the centuries. The main attack of this narrative is that anyone who does not want to join Muhammad will be treated violently or persuaded by sexual attraction.
The Vatican is horrified by the fact that Islam allows men to marry four wives, is permitted to divorce, and even allows divorced women to remarry! This is considered as one of the things that makes many people convert to Islam. To prevent this, the Church also made propaganda that Muhammad was a false prophet, experienced sexual deviation, and taught false religion.
These crude and fake allegations began to spread without critical questions to ask for evidence. Until now, this idea still roamed the West, especially in the right wing circles. As a result, Islam was insulted and constructed as a dangerous enemy.
What makes the Vatican feel that this enemy is dangerous is not only the fact that Islam has taken control of several Christian areas, but has also succeeded in making Christians convert to Islam. When Muslim forces ruled Europe from the seventh to eleventh centuries, many non-Muslim residents converted to Islam, including Christians and Jews. Non-Orthodox Christians who were persecuted by the Greek Church welcomed Muslim rule.
For several centuries, many people converted to Islam. Therefore, Islam is presented as a serious threat. They must be removed, and this means mobilizing troops to retake the Holy Land of Jerusalem, reclaim Spain, and rebuild hegemony
