    Is Islamophobia bigotry?

    Are people to be blamed for bigotry, or are they just being cautious in light that radical terrorism in the name of islam makes people distrust Muslims in general? Who's fault is it when people are made to feel that way? Themselves, media, or Islamist jihad?

    I think I know why I can't find the right religion for myself.
