Islamophobia is 100% real and justified.

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?
in response to reader comment: ISLAMOPHOBIA - From 1997 to 9/11 (2001)

Dear Dr Pipes, Even without 9/11, fear of Islam is rational and justified. For example, whether they say it or not, a lot of people are afraid of their kids falling in love with a Muslim. If the do, they can say good bye to open-mindedness, conversion to Islam is the only option, and it is only a one way street. That is a genuine fear. Of course, Islam's proclivity toward violence also induces fear. I hope someday to visit Jerusalem but East Jerusalem will probably not be my cup of tea.

Let the truth be politely told.

Any thoughts on it from our Muslim readers?
