Atheist Frontier - Questioning what's Real
   






Glossary - Islamophobia

Since a "phobia" is an irrational fear, the true Islamopobes could only be the Muslims because only they can be said to have an irrational fear of their Islamic deity, Allah, whom they faithfully believe in.  To say that atheists (or even Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Sikhs, etc.) who express fear of Islam are Islamophobic, is an inappropriate use of the term because one doesn't fear what they are absent of belief in (in this case, the Islamic deity, Allah).

Any person's fear of Islamic extremists is not irrational, because the acts of suicide bombers and aeroplane terrorists that have killed thousands of people in the name of Islam are real, and so those who have an evidence-based fear of Islamic ideals that is rationally grounded in reality cannot be classified as "Islamophobic."
