I see your point but the fact that Muslims (and their apologists) are using the word 'Islamophobia' requires the creation of a neologism that more accurately reflects the stance of the user towards Islam. Unfortunately, us Muslims (remember - we're ALL Muslims ) are in a special category. We haven't yet realised the importance of shaving our pubic hair and stepping into the toilet with the right foot and haven't really taken to the idea of stoning women to death for adultery. For some strange reason we haven't accepted that amputation is a sane punishment for theft. And we find it revolting that 53 year old men lust after 9 year old girls. Along with many other things our more erudite and learned brothers so deeply understand the importance of. What is it - why are we so different?

So a new word is needed to infer by the context in which it is used exactly what type of Muslim is making their point known.
