Anne-Marie - I certainly can't claim creation of the term 'islamorealism'. I use it because it is more appropriate than the term Muslims use -'islamophobia' - as though 'phobos' - 'fear' was the only reaction to this blight on humanity.

Words many people would like to use such 'islamo-disappointedness' - don't roll off the tongue so well and there's no English word that conveys succinctly the sense of frustration of daily hearing of the destructive deeds of blind, unconscious human beings thinking they have found enlightenment through following this 7th century anachronism.

If there was such a word, I'd use it. So Islamorealism is the term of choice at the moment until something better comes along.
