    We hear that accusation and chant constantly...particuarly from the antifa group when they are out in the streets hollering 'Islamaphobe' and of course we see it on the board constantly.

    First of all let me post a definition of Islamaphobia to make sure we are on the same page..................'unreasonable dislike or fear of, and prejudice against, Muslims or Islam:' from --the Cambridge English Dictionary.

    The key word being of course.....'unreasonable' ---so can it be said at least truthfully that 'Islamaphobia' is a problem in America or can it be truthfully said that Republicans are guilty of Islamaphobia?

    Any phobia is fear that is out of proportion to the danger. Thus, fear of crossing any bridge is excessive and unhealthy. Fear of crossing an old rope bridge high over a ravine is not unfounded or excessive.
    When the matter is dislike or opposition to something, phobia has nothing to do with it. In such a case, "phobia" is merely an epithet cast to disparage the mental state of the person opposed.
    To be opposed to something or someone opposed to you is understandable, even natural.

    There are 1.6 Billion Muslims in the world. Most of them are just trying to get by in life. There are 6 million Muslims in the US. Most of them are law abiding folks as well.

    You are more likely to be killed by a white extremist than a Muslim extremist in this country.

    Nobody talks about Caucasia-phobia... we just kind of accept it.

    Okay, let's look at that one.

    Are Muslims opposed to us, or our policies? Since this is the CDZ, I would liken our policy to sticking our hands in a hornet's nest and then complaining about getting stung. We go into THEIR part of the world, bomb their cities, occupy their lands, arm the craziest person we can find on the theory we can work with him and then wonder why he turns on us.

    Fun Fact: What do Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein have in common? They were both guys the CIA thought we would work with until they turned on us.

    Joe is right. Muslims have just recently turned against other groups of people in the world. It isnt in their holy book or anything. Their outrage and bigotry is our fault :rolleyes:

    No more than anyone else's.

    Let's not forget, the two most devastating wars in the last century were started by Christians....

    Muslims just kind of hung back and said, 'Yeah, go ahead and kill each other if it gets you off our backs."

    How many muslims does it take to set off a nuclear device in New York? Lest we forget Obama said that was one of his biggest fears.

    Anyhow....we see posts like yours all the time claiming that(you do not post any stats) but even if the stats support that it is essentially irrelevant...as in the count could change at any time.

    Say Obama's fear about N.Y. came true....can you imagine how the count would change?

    What anyone who is interested in America's National security should be concerned about is not the body count at this point in time but who or what group poses the biggest threat to America...

    White extremists is a broad term...by which you could include the school shooters, hate crimes etc.etc. and so on and so forth and since Whites are the majority pop. then of course they are going to committ more crimes...but are these white criminals really a threat to our National Security? I do not know of any white extremist group who wants to destroy America.

    At that moment in time when Japan attacked pearl harbor..more whites had been killed in America by other whites over the years....but who posed the biggest threat to America?....thus it is obvious you pose a fallacious argument.

    Obviously you know nothing of the History of Islam. They have been fighting wars ever since Mohammed founded Islam.


    But Perhaps you are just being sarcastic...and I kinda think you are but anyhow Jihad is founded on Islamic teachings.

    the topic is about Islamaphobia in America not the history of Islam.
