I just don't get it. All those suicide bombers in Israel? Muslim. Terrorist attacks in Spain, London? Done by Muslims. Terrorists attacks on U.S. property abroad and at home over the last 20 - 30 years? Generally done by Muslims (notable exceptions to include Eric Rudolph, Ted Kaczynski, Tim McVeigh and others). The recently foiled plan to infiltrate Fort Dix, New Jersey and cause death and destruction? Muslims.
But so what? Why on earth would intelligent, rational human beings throughout the world feel that followers of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) needed to be watched a bit more closely than, say, the Amish? Islamophobia - it's kind of like fearing rat poison. It's pretty harmless in a sealed container on a high shelf behind a locked door. But it's not something you keep lying around on kitchen countertops.
I'll start fearing Catholics when they start promising eternal rewards to those who kill innocent civilians. I'll fear the Jews when synagogues start preaching hate. And I'll start fearing evangelicals, JWs and Mormons when they stop trying to convert me and instead try to annihilate me.
