'Ahmed', the Islamist writes:

"........Well, you suffer a psychological disease( diagnosed later) called Islamophobia which can be defined as an unreasonable fear of Islam and thus everything that is Islamic."

Modern medicine codifies psychological aberrations. If we look in the ICD-10 AM international medical coding system - there is no entry for a so-called 'Islamophobia' - NOTHING AT ALL ,which means it is a made-up term.

It has been disingenuously coined by Islamists in defence of their primitive cosmology from attacks by Westerners who are used to enquiry and finding answers , who see Islam for what it is - the Great Pretender. . The made-up word 'Islamophobia' seeks to imply that the anybody questioning and pointing out the barbarity and absurdities of this 'religion' are psychologically deficient in some way.
The word for someone who DOESN'T question the barbarity and absurdity of this religion is 'Muslim'.

BTW, there is another pseudo-medical sounding term 'MPD' - 'Muslm Personality Disorder'. Have you heard of that and do you use that term yourself?

Homosexuals have come up with a similar word - 'homophobia' to discredit non-homosexuals who question the ethics and values of the gay scene. But the suffix 'phobia' is not an appropriate choice as it is the Greek root for 'fear' and fear is rarely an issue. I wonder if any philologists amongst the readers know the Greek word for 'despise' - as this is a much more appropriate term. Most Muslims despise homosexuals and don't really fear them, so using the word 'homophobia' is not really appropriate choice.

It is a similar situation with the made-up word 'Islamophobia'.

A far more appropriate and increasingly used term is 'Islamorealism'

".......9/11 was an eternal job."

Well, as much as anything else is eternal. But it has left it's mark in history and in the minds of billions of people about where real devotion to Islam can take people.

".....You said that Islam is not compatible with Sharia'."

If it isn't then what is?

" Well, Thomas Jeferson drafted your constitution from the Holy Quran."

Any history buffs out there that can point out how this is just pure conjecture from the florid mind of a wishful thinker? It's hardly worth the effort to respond to this- it's so absurd.

This person has made a preposterous claim but hasn't supplied any cogent, rational arguments or facts or anything else to back it up. Until he does so, it goes into the same basket as the Burak, flying carpets and the 72 virgins pie in the sky (ooops, I left out the green cushions and the tents.).

"......I just wanna remind that terror does not have an identity, country nor a religion. "
Yes - political and religious fascists have been successfully pulling it off around the globe down through the ages.

".....To label Islam as a terrorist religon is disgusting as it is amazing. "

But to not look at what is actually written in the Koran and not notice that at it's core it's extremely violent and supremacist and then to go on and believe it was dictated by a deity is even more amazing.

".................. I personally denounce terrorism and abhor it. "

good for you - but so does any sane person - so do you want a gold star for appearing to be normal?

".....Most Americans are terrorists or tell me how would you explain their overstay in Iraq? Remember to genralize is stupid"

What a classic example of a person contradicting himself in 2 sentences - 'most Americans are terrorists..." immediately followed by '.....Remember to genralize is stupid....'

What a crack-up! Where did you learn to become so confused - or develop the skill to hide yourself from your own deep confusion? Reading the 7th century arabic Koran and trying to make it fit into the 21st century could do it.
