'Islamophobia' really scares me

'Islamophobia' really scares me. I find it terrifying when people use the term as if it refers to something that actually exists and is actually unreasonable.

It scares me because when people use it in all sincerity it suggests they are amazingly ignorant of Islam and its dreadful consequences throughout history; it suggests that people are not aware of the 30,000 terrorist attacks in the name of Islam since 9/11; it suggests that the millions killed throughout its 1400 year history never existed; it never happened; it was just a bad dream; it suggests that the Islamic think tanks have been hugely successful at grooming and indoctrinating people to submit to the view that Islam is perfect and can do no wrong.

This is why 'Islamophobia' scares me.

If anyone uses the word, there is a question I like to ask them: how much do you know about Islam, its doctrines, its history, its prevalent attitudes?
