Islamophobe (is-slahm-o-fohb) - A non-Muslim who knows
more than they are supposed to
know about Islam.
Islamophobia is an allegedly
irrational fear of losing life
or liberty to Islamic rule merely because the laws, sacred texts,
and traditional practices of Islam demand the submission of culture,
politics, religion and all social expression. It tends to
afflict those most familiar with the religion while sparing the
Unlike Infidelophobia (Quranically-inspired
hatred and fear of non-Muslims - see 4:101),
Islamophobia doesn't involve
dead bodies, but rather bruised Muslim feelings, which - according to the teachings of the faith
- are far
more important than the lives of infidels.
The word "Islamophobia"
literally means a fear of
Islam, but since Allah himself "throws terror into the hearts of
disbelievers" (Quran 8:12) it is used more often in
reference to the
rejection of Islam.
In Muhammad's day, rejection was
treated with a practice known as "beheading" (which
naturally resulted in more fear). Since this is now
impractical outside of the Muslim world, the condition of
Islamophobia is best
addressed by means of prevention. Such preventive measures
include willful ignorance (best assisted with a strong dose of taqiyya).
The fact is that when Islam checks in,
a lot of folks wind up checking out... permanently. Therefore
Islamophobes are a pretty broad group.
