It's so typical of Islamist doublespeakologists (BS artists) that they string together imposing sounding accusations which, when analyzed, reveal that the underlying concept is nonsense.

One might "suffer" from, or be "afflicted by" a phobia. But one cannot be "guilty" of one, since it isn't a crime. Of course, they like to imply by their choice of words that someone is committing a crime against them by being irrationally afraid of them. But it would be no crime, even if it were true.

And that brings me to my second point. Our concerns regarding the danger Islam represents are NOT irrational, since they are grounded in very real death and destruction at their hands.

Finally, another one of their...servings is "that is forbidden in Islam," when of course a simple examination reveals that if Islam has no severe punishment for something, and if they look up to those who commit a specific allegedly "forbidden" act, then it really isn't forbidden.
