Am I An Islamophobe?

You bet I am.

The same way Churchill, MacArthur, Patton and Montgomery were Naziphobes.

Islamophobia is a term coined by Muslims in the 1980s. Today, any negative sentiment or expression toward Islam, Muhammad or the Quran is likely to be met with accusations of Islamophobia.

Are the accusations of Islamophobia justified? What exactly is Islamophobia anyway? Let’s start with “phobia”.

Oxford dictionary defines phobia as “irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group,” while Merriam-Webster dictionary defines phobia as “exaggerated fear”.

Combining the two, phobia is defined as “irrational or exaggerated fear or dislike of a specified thing or group,” which in turn defines Islamophobia as “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 and Muhammad killed thousands of non-Muslims. Muslim imams today declare that they will subjugate or kill non-Muslims. Muslims kill non-Muslims indiscriminately in Madrid, Spain (above); UK (London), Indonesia (Bali), Russia (Beslan), and kill Christians discriminately in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia.

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 Hitler in 1939?

“Islamophobia” is a misnomer coined by Muslims as part of their effort to neutralize the opposition to and prevent the criticism of Islam that it deserves.
