I don’t mind being called an Islamophobe as long as “Islamophobia” is defined using Horowitz and Spencer’s definition of “a rational fear of Islamism” based on “the misogyny, bigotry, and terrorism promoted by many (but not all) Islamic institutions and religious texts.”
Why do we distrust Islam? Islam is the only religion in the world that MANDATES murder against their neighbors who live peacefully nearby yet hold other religious beliefs. In every other religion that I know of, you can accept or reject it without the threat of death.
Sirah 9:5 – “Kill the unbeliever wherever you find them . . . ” This is the Korans last word, known as the “Verse of the Sword” “Kill them wherever you find them”
In June of 2003, Eddie Smith, of the U.S. Prayer Center, made the observation: “Every war that is fought in the future will be a Muslim war.” I believe that his eight year old statement was prophetic. Study the Bible and you’ll find that Armageddon will be a Muslim war.
If I had lived through the 1930′s and 40′s in Nazi Germany, I’d have been a Naziphobe too. Naziphobia would have been the sane response to what Hitler and his thugs cooked up. Why would I not be concerned, alarmed, appalled at what I see in Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Indonesia, Venezuela, on Margarita Island? Need I go on? For someone to have cried out . . . ICEBERG! . . . in the cold north Atlantic aboard the Titanic, might have changed the fate of many who died needlessly. I doubt that the hero would have been labeled an Iceophobe or Bergophobe. Given history’s clear examples, I’ll continue to cry out warnings to any who will listen as long as the open and covert evil and persecution continues to grow and spread.
A prime example which should make any sane person a bonified Islamophobe is reported by Daniel Greenfield at http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/:
Take the case of Batto Sfez, a Tunisian Jewish wagon driver who got into an argument during a traffic jam with a member of the Muslim master race. In an argument between a Muslim and a non-Muslim, the former always has a trump card, accuse the non-Muslim of blaspheming Mohammed. And so the wagon driver was dragged before a Sharia court by a peacefully religious mob and had his head chopped off.

Anyone who is not an Islamophobe, by virtue of observation and historical precedent, is asleep, unconscious, historically challenged or naive. So which are you? I appeal to you to join with those of us who have arisen from our slumber and are busy warning those we love and care deeply about.
