Islamophobia is not real

phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.
Yeah sounds about right. 
I suffer from claustrophobia, put me in a small space and I sweat and shake like an18 year old at a rave.
Islamophobia though isn't real!

Its just a word invented by the left and certain Muslims to stifle debate and criticism of Islam. 
In fact I would say that the very action of putting phobia after many things is the wrong  thing to do.

Take homophobia. So if you don't like gay people your homophobic. So what your afraid of them ?  
Bullshit. Your just a narrow minded arsehole.
The only fear you have when it comes to homosexuality is that you are afraid of your own feelings and the consequences of accepting gay people-you may be one. 
So okay I concede that homophobic could be used to justify some people. But I think narrow minded bigoted arsehole is a better term.

Islamophobia though is a total red herring. Has anyone ever looked at a Muslim and had feelings that 'hmm I may be one of them'. I feel something for them so have to hate them to suppress my feelings ?
Even if we use the term islamophobia the way the the left and many Muslims wish us to-the irrational fear of Muslims- it doesn't make sense.

Let's go back to homophobia. When has there ever been a threat from gay people. 
I'm sorry but I can't remember a single suicide gay person or a gay terrorist movement.
I can't remember a single gay person condemning us straits to death or eternal damnation. It's just nonsense to equate a fear of Islam with a fear of gay people.

Islam is a religion. Its backwards just like Christianity- and all other religion's. 
It's full of violence, misogyny, hatred of homosexuality , sexism , inequality and bigotry. So yeah there is lots to be afraid of there. 

In fact in one respect islamophobia could be used as a genuine condition. If your afraid for homosexuals or women that have to live under these backwards arsed regimes. You fear for their safety and their quality of life yeah, that could be cased as a phobia. But even then I wouldn't call it a phobia. A phobia is irrational. For you to not fear living under that kind of political or social system is in fact very dangerous.  You should fear it.

So there is no such thing as Islamophobia. If you don't like Muslims just because they are Muslims your a prejudiced  arsehole. 
If you don't like dark skinned Muslims because of their colour your a racist arsehole. 
If you don't like them because they are foreign your a xenophobic arsehole. 
And if you don't like them because they are different to you your a bigoted arsehole. 

We need to stop using this term Islamophobia  as a cover all for any critique of this -like all others- backwards religion's and cults. The very concept of any religion like Christianity or Islam needs torn apart by every sane rational person on the planet.
