Today, ‘academic articles’ on Islam and its various groups have clearly
revealed that any ignoramus can thrust himself headlong into the complex
field of Islamic sects and their religious differences without having
the slightest idea of what they’re writing about. While studying the
work of these so called Islamologists and pseudo Middle East
specialists, one can only conclude that the overwhelming majority of
them are incompetent charlatans exploiting valuable research money from
universities like Princeton, Cambridge, Oxford, Ia Sorbonne and
Sciences-Po by issuing amateurish articles that often contain
self-invented stories, unverified facts or even blatant lies. In France,
an elite of secular fundamentalists1 have engaged upon a media vendetta
against Muslims who refuse to assimilate to the French uber-culture and
abide by its norms. Exploiting the ignorance of the masses, these new
generation orientalists have succeeded in demonizing a specific part of
France’s Muslim community, describing them in French mainstream media as
Islamists, fanatics, fundamentalists, etc. Reporting on Islam and its
sects has become a “profit guaranteed! Business; but amazingly, almost
every single one of these ‘Islam experts’ is unable to perform routine
academic research in the original Arabic books and studies which are the
prime source for anyone who wishes to study the origins, influence and
development of contemporary Islamic sects. There is probably no other
domain of specialization in academic circles where illiteracy of the
primal language on which its study is based doesn’t seem to pose a
problem with becoming an “expert” in the field. Moreover, their
incapacity to perform basic or proper research doesn’t seem to bother
them in the least.
