dhimmi no more

Phobia (from the Greek: φόβος,phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. I am not particularly flattered of you addressing me ya phloso....However, I have already explained Islam phobia in two of my comments. To reiterate my point on both is as follows:

Muslims, by and large, are less educated and less informed people than others. They are ignorant of their own religion and history. Unfortunately, they have been misled about their religion and history by foreigner, and quite right so, and by their own ill informed Mullah who has been instrumental to keep the flock in a daze of wanting Paradise the easiest way. There are Mullahs who still prescribed medicine by writing an ayat of the Quraan onto a paper or tablet, wash it with water and make the ill drink it.

West/US fear of Islam is not a real Phobia. Neither Europe nor the US is really afraid of Islam or Muslims. It is orchestrated to make their own people forget about the real problems that both are facing: large governments, outrageous spending of public money, unnecessary control of the populace, unjustly supporting the mercantile class, high level of corruption, monopoly of necessities and control of the activities/movement of their population.

Among the trio, Islam is the youngest. It carries the stigma of abrogating/nullifying the older scriptures. It is exactly how ordinary Muslims are made to feel about the Bahai or Ahmadi, claimant of adhering to a modified faith within the religion. Both, Ahmadi and the Bahai have been declared non Muslims. Incidentally, both were helped by the Anglo/French, the colonizers.

West/US has the powers to erase all Muslim worshiping places and kill more than half the Muslim population in one full sweep and will still have more fire left to strike all over again. So, Islam Phobia is not real.
