Concerted attempts are being made all over the free world to shut down, ban and criminalize discussion and/or criticism of Islam or anything related to it such as Islamists, Jihad, Sharia, the negative impact it is having on free countries everywhere and the serious threat it poses to freedom, democracy and the Western way of life. There isn’t a single country in the free world that hasn’t been affected by them, including the United States… particularly the United States. After all, the U.S. is the world’s bastion of freedom and if discussion and/or criticism is shut down, banned or criminalized in America freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of thought will not only be lost there but everywhere else as well and Islamists will have taken a giant step forward towards turning Western countries into Islamic states. It is no exaggeration at all to say that Islam and its adherents are a serious, direct threat to freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of thought and the Western way of life. In reality, they are the most serious, direct threat of all and if they are ignored or accommodated the United States and the rest of the West are finished.
Synonyms for phobia in my handy desktop thesaurus are fear, terror, dread, horror and fright. Synonyms for phobic are fearful, scared, terrified, nervous and anxious. Given the true nature of Islam and how it manifests itself in the world (how it has always manifested itself for that matter) Islamophobia is a perfectly rational, sane, sensible reaction. People should be terrified of Islam and the intentions of Islamists. There is nothing irrational or abnormal about Islamophobia at all and it is really nothing more than a defence mechanism, a survival instinct if you will. Anyone who values freedom and examines Islam honestly and objectively has to be Islamophobic. In fact, they should be proud of it and should act on their Islamophobia to defend themselves.
Am I Islamophobic? Absolutely, especially since I have studied Islam in depth for many years and look at its results every day. You should be Islamophobic too. If you wish to survive as a free person in a free country that is.
