Islamophobia, a “scheme project”; women are one of its main targets!

It is no longer secret that the industry of Islamophobia is an “integrated project” that sets several targets; including degrading values, principles, sanctities, and identities. It builds its strategies on multiple aspects, political, economic, and societal, “enacting laws” and even security ones in some areas and in certain circumstances. The “manufacturers” of the Islamophobia industry seek to obliterate, subjugate and weaken societies and civilizations that have a pivotal role in human development for over one thousand and four hundred years.

“The owners” of these hate-based projects seek to divide society and “create” a state of tension between its components and stir up fear among its segments; believing that it may let them win more electoral votes that may lead to their formation of governments that implement ideological supranational policies.

The variety of methods that the “makers” of Islamophobia follow is not a matter of their lack of consensus over the end goal, but, is a difference of visions about the most appropriate way to reach the declared goals and the unannounced ones.

In the midst of their many “intends”, women come as a primary and a pivotal target for the various perpetrators of Islamophobia . Women besides sharing life with man since the creation of Adam and Eve, she has an influential and a deep role in human civilization, especially the Eastern ones. She is “architect” and guider of the societies. In addition to the universal role of women as educators of youth generations throughout history until the present days, she is political leader and thinker, she is researcher and entrepreneur, she is teacher and producer in all fields, and she is decision-maker.

The fact that women are among the most prominent victims of Islamophobia and discrimination is not an arbitrary matter, but, an intentional and unambiguous act of the civilizational dimension. Targeting women is nothing new under two different headings; Including what Europe witnessed in the Middle Ages in terms of targeting women under the name of religion. And then, in what is known as the Renaissance era, a new targeting campaign against women was launched under the name “Modernity and Enlightenment”. In the current periods, women have been targeted, intimidated, and there have been attempts to destabilize their entity by violating their freedom and choices, depriving them of their most basic rights through unfair “text laws”, denying them work opportunities, violent attacks, and endless smear campaigns of their convictions and beliefs.

Some may think that the whole concept of Islamophobia hate form results from a “religious” or an ethnic war. Although some extreme right-wing and populist currents have intellectual dimensions, this conclusion contradicts the reality of the countless facts and evidence. The proponents of Islamophobia are present in the East and in the West, speaking different languages. The victims of Islamophobia, women being the center of sufferers, have no geographical boundaries.

On the other hand, those who confront Islamophobia are of multiple races and “faiths”. In this respect, our experiences in Canada are the best evidence that those who believes in human values ​​and principles and defend women’s rights, regardless of their backgrounds, are hand in hand on one front that confronts hatred and discrimination.

 The fight against Islamophobia and racism comes as one of the most important moral duties for each of us, regardless of the size of effects and influence we may have in our societal environment. The very serious dimensions of hatred, targeting women, and discrimination require thoughtful collective action to combat these destructive phenomena .

Leadership; role mode, inspiration & human development…  

Leadership; role mode, inspiration & human development…  

Role model

One major concept of successful leadership is the notion of role model. Elements of role model circulate around; A) ability to inspire, B) passion, C) commitment to the wellbeing of community & society at large, D) Selflessness, E) team work and acceptance of others, F) Ability to overcome obstacles. E) Continuity and never give up spirit.

A role model is other-focused as opposed to self-focused. Role models are usually active in their societies, freely giving of their time and talents to benefit people, ability to recruit and very well public relation skilled.

Inspiration & human development

Inspiration in leadership is a key factor of keeping the vitals running in any project, successful work, or volunteering movement. Making people feeling important and appreciated, letting your team feels the sense of ownership over their projects, and giving space of free thinking and creativeness of implementation of work plans. All together plays the base in developing your team to be better performance level and more confidence in their creativity talents.

Various methods of management

There are many leadership styles that are considered as the main lines of “management” methods that may be pursued as proper titles of leadership approaches. Of the known leadership styles are;

  • Autocratic (Coercive Management Style).
  • Participative Management Style.
  • Delegative Management Style.
  • Persuasive Management Style.

Customized leadership style

It is important to recognize and understand different leadership styles including the circumstances and conditions in which they are mostly effective. However, one is unlikely to be a successful team leader simply by imitating already existing leadership styles. Leadership is not limited to providing a certain response in a certain situation. It’s about using your natural leadership strengths, talents and skills in an authentic manner to inspire and motivate others.

Along the way in both the career life and the activism one, although, each is based on a different territory, however, they both, career and activism, requires competent management, decision making, team spirit, outreach, work under pressure of time and the objectives of successful end-results. Throughout the years and the experiences exercised, one may adapt different “management” styles and sometimes combination of two or more of managing techniques depending on the project, available resources, timeframe, working condition, and expected outcome.

Choosing from the many administration methods, the participative leadership and delegative leadership styles both serves the purpose of true meaning leadership, human development by elevating self-esteem and set free of talented skills.  Also known as “laissez-faire leadership”, a delegative leadership style focuses on delegating initiatives to team members. This can be a successful strategy if team members are competent, dedicated, faithful, & committed.  

Although both the participative and the delegative leadership approaches have significant advantages, still, they both have their own challenges and difficulties; It can be very time-consuming in reaching to consensus. Also, in some cases, disagreement among members may lead to weakness of performance, splitting of efforts, and eventually to difficulty in achieving the original goals.

The principle remains to involve team members in the decision making process. Team members consequently feel included, engaged, implicated and motivated to contribute. Moreover, choice of the right leadership leads to the construction of strong team and build a crew that can develop ideas and actions plans, and enhance a positive work environment.
