Example text

We need, then, to consider the ubiquity of the image as an image: in other words, the fact that, as commonly used, it is essentially a grand, severed head frozen in a convulsion of fury. The head can be detached from the body—in the same way that, as we will see, the man can be conveniently detached from both his personal history and the political background that go to create him—and attached to any number of corporeal shapes. These shapes, the bile with which images of Islamic Rage Boy are inevitably greeted, and the fears that can be hidden behind these transformations but that nonetheless peep through all provide a fascinating insight into what is being expressed by the stereotypers and—no less important—what is being repressed at the same time.

Blair’s rhetoric on Muslims, like that of his mentor George W. Bush, constantly vacillated between a notion of “improvement” and a latent conviction of inherent regressive characteristics. 36 As in colonialism, so now social development is read in temporal terms, through an evolutionary sequence and a posited clash between “advanced” and “backward” civilizations. ”37 A similar developmental schema can also been seen operating in the frequent calls for a “Muslim Reformation” that conveniently ignore the debates currently going on within Islam between proponents of ijtihad (critical reasoning) and traditionalists for whom a definitive interpretation of all Koranic injunctions has been achieved.

However, in the case of stereotypes of Muslims such as Islamic Rage Boy, two overlapping and contradictory forms of satisfaction are being indulged at the same time: two types of fetishization are in evidence. In his essay “Fetishism” from 1927, Freud suggests that the male child’s disavowal of the perceived anatomical distinction between the sexes results in a splitting of the ego. ” Thus, perceived or threatened loss of power results in particular psychic formations and impulses, many of which can also be descried in contemporary anxious alarms raised about the threat to Judeo-Christian civilization by the Muslim hordes at the gates.
