War of words: Beating back ‘Islamophobia’

“Islamophobia” is a word conceived by the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1990s, long before the 9/11 attacks, to invalidate any criticism of Islamist ideology – i.e., Muhammad’s view of the outer jihad that is now used by the worldwide movement of Islamists.

The word “Islamophobia” means unwarranted fear of Muslims. It is used to portray Islamists as a persecuted, peace-loving minority so that all “right-minded people” will stand up against the voices of hate and intolerance. It is frequently used by Islamists, and what the Communists called “useful idiots,” to label critics of Islam as fundamentalist bigots in order to stifle criticism. “Islamophobe” is used as a political tool to silence people the same way the words Nazi, Hitler, fascist, racist, misogynist, bigot, and homophobe are used. Thus, many people in Europe and the USA today do not recognize the existential threat from the Third Jihad.
