Conflicting quotations:

  • "Jim Jones, David Koresh and Meir Kahane do not typify Christianity and Judaism in the eyes of the civilized West, but those same eyes are prone to see Osama bin Laden and Mullah Muhammad Omar as typifying Islam," Richard Bulliet. 1

  • "Radical Islam is the problem; moderate Islam is the solution." Daniel Pipes 2

  • "The plain fact is there is no moderate Islam and no moderate Muslim." Jaladhi 3

Overview:

We define "Islamophobia" as

"Fear and/or hatred of Muslims, or of the religion of Islam, and/or a desire to limit the civil liberties of Muslims."

In our glossary of religious and spiritual terms, we note that Islamophobia:

"... is often exhibited by a person attributing the actions of a few extreme, violent, fundamentalist Muslim terrorists to the entire population of Muslims or to the religion of Islam."

This section discusses Islamophobia starting before the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City and Washington and continuing until the present time.
