Well if I am an islamaphobe, I must be a brave mofo considering all the time I Seek out Islamic places and go to them. I fear Islam the way women fear chocolate and men fear watching football. Interesting I never get called a christianiphobe. The left has no use for calling anyone that because they are trying to make everyone appear racist and put them on the defensive. A person saying "I am not racist" always appears to be losing the argument. You can't put me on the defensive this way because I happily admit I am racist. Also Bengal b makes a good point about islamaphobia. It wouldn't be wise to ignore how Islam affects our world. You can bet Christians in Syria fear Islam. Earlier this year I went to Nairobi and every night I drank at a local bar watching English premier league matches. It was awesome because even though these Kenyans are really different than me they spoke English so I could talk to them about the world. They were terribly islamaphobic. All of them were Christian and very worried about Somali and Sudanese immigration to Kenya. A week after I left 150 Kenyans college kids were killed at school by Muslims. And as you know, the American embassy in Nairobi, and the main mall in Nairobi had also been destroyed by Muslims. So, does red believe it was irrational for these Kenyans to be islamaphobic, or is there no level of killing and destruction that justifies a phobia?
