What is "Islamophobia"?
"Islamophobia" is a term coined by Muslims in the 1980s and refers to the phobia of Islam. Today, any negative statement, even if true, about Islam, Sharia Law, Muhammad or the Quran is likely to be met with accusations of "Islamophobia!"
Are accusations of Islamophobia justified?
Let's start by defining "phobia." The Oxford Dictionary defines it as, "irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group," while Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines it as, "exaggerated fear." Combining the two definitions, phobia is the "irrational or exaggerated fear or dislike of a specified thing or group," and the definition of Islamophobia in turn is the "irrational or exaggerated fear or dislike of Islam."
Are non-Muslims' fear or dislike of Islam "irrational or exaggerated"?
The Quran instructs Muslims to "kill" non-Muslims (see No Compulsion in Religion), Muhammad killed thousands of non-Muslims (see "Religion of Peace") and Muslim imams today declare that Muslims will subjugate or kill non-Muslims. Muslims have killed non-Muslims indiscriminately in Madrid, Spain (above), UK (London), USA (New York City and San Bernardino), France (Paris), Belgium (Brussels), Indonesia (Bali), Russia (Beslan), and kill Christians discriminately in the Middle East (e.g., Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia), Africa (e.g., Egypt, Sudan) and Asia (e.g., The Philippines, Indonesia).
Therefore, the fear or dislike of Islam is neither irrational nor exaggerated, but rather logical given the words of the Quran and imams, and the actions of Muhammad and Muslims. Indeed, it would be irrational to not fear or dislike those who are trying to kill you. After all, could the Jews be accused of "phobia" - irrational or exaggerated fear or dislike - of Adolf Hitler in 1939? (See Hitler and Islam.)
"Islamophobia" is a misnomer coined by Muslims as part of their campaign to neutralize the opposition to and prevent the criticism of Islam that it deserves. See War Against Islam and Muslim Brotherhood.
