    Here we have a made-up, dishonest word, "Islamophobia", and we've become so overly-PC that everyone swallows it whole. Notice in the BBC article a stunning lack of details. What's an example of "Islamophobia" that's being committed - by anyone?

    Islamophobia is a tool designed to remove free speech.

    Sure it does. It's the same thing as prejudice against Jews/Judaism. Prejudice is prejudice.

    Catholics are a minority in England but bashing the Vatican (which many Italians do too) is not considered Catholicophobia

    A made up word to make it appear that
    any reservations one might have about
    that religion constitute a mental disorder-
    an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.

    Islamism is very good at playing the victim and Islamophobia is a very good card to play.

    According to Wikipedia, the term entered into common usage in English around 1997.

    I presume that this was to counteract the information age.

    Ive seen Islamaphobia. It exists. However, the problem comes from when the twitter mob demands all criticism be silenced as islamaphic. But rest assured, there are plenty out there who believe some truly whacko thkngs about Muslims and hate them just for being.
