Islamaphobia was a word created around 1995. It's a word meant to shame the hearers into not taking action or ignoring actions like are described in this report. Tell me, can you point to any other religion in the world today who is committing such violence against innocents and soft targets like women (acid attacks), children (child marriage starting at 9), or restaurants or schools (bombers)?
Fear is actually part of God’s design. The Bible teaches us there is such a thing as a healthy fear, like the scriptures that admonish us to fear (reverence, respect and honor) God. God's word also warns us against unhealthy or excessive fear to. God's antidote for excessive fear is found in 1 John 4:18. It's perfect or mature love which casts out all fear.
Phobia's Role & Islamaphobia's Goal
Phobia refers to an unhealthy fear that goes way beyond a healthy boundary. Islamaphobia is a word made up around 1995. It's goal was to assist Islamic operatives with their cultural jihad. Don't forget that Jihad refers to their "holy war" and Islam means "surrender." The practitioners of radical Islam it is said make up close to 20% worldwide. Pew Research says that there are about 1.8 billion Muslim's world wide. Twenty percent, hey, even ten percent, provide a clear and present danger which is reinforced by the CBS article.
The word Islamophobia is used by organizations like CAIR (click Council on American Islamic Relations) in their efforts to work in a nation as a minority so as to protect their efforts and goals of setting up Sharia Law. If you want to understand their goal just look to Europe.
Shame and the War on Your Mind
Islamophobia is a word meant to illicit shame and sympathy by painting the Muslims as victims. To be clear, many Muslims are victims of radical Islam to. But this word was not made for them. The word was made to be used in the West. You can see how the term was used in Europe in conjunction with immigration so as to create majorities in certain areas were Sharia could then be instituted.
The term is meant to be used to distract you from facts. It's meant to dull the mind or hide the threat in plain sight through the use of shame and even create allies through sympathy.
Disclaimer and Warning!
Here is the truth, not all Muslims are practicing radical Islam. Most are not. However, there is a significant portion of the practitioners who do which numbers in the hundreds of millions. Some of these practitioners lead nation states such as Iran. Iran leads a loose coalition of Islamic nations who as part of their national policy seek to wipe Israel off the map. We also find worst persecution in Christian history is being carried out today by Muslims in Islamic nations.
These facts point to a clear and present danger.... not a phobia!

Truth Teaches a Healthy Fear
Unless the Church and American public wake up, soon we will see “no go zones” like the ones which have sprung up across Europe and Britain. (FoxNews reports in the March 1, 2018 article that Angela Merkel admits that 'no-go zones' exist in Germany & Catholic World Report Raheem Kassam’s “No Go Zones” is unsettling, necessary reading).
Consider Noah as an example. Hebrews 11:7 says, " By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith."
Truth is the basis for a healthy respect regarding a threat. Godly fear and love for God, your family, your neighbor and your nation should motivate you "move with godly fear" and not move or be paralyzed by a phobia.
I share this with you for Hosea 4:6 tells us how God's people "are destroyed for lack of knowledge." So,
I encourage you to...
1 Peter 5:8-9
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
