Dinah Spritzer: Islamophobia and and The Fear of Islam

“In Denmark, if you speak out against forced marriage, Islamists say you are Islamophobic,“ Nasser Khader, a member of the Danish Parliament who describes himself as a secular Muslim, told JTA. “I think it’s OK to have Islamist-phobia. Islam as an ideology can be fascistic.“ Khader said Muslims should face up to the fact that they are sometimes to blame for anti-Muslim sentiment. “One month after 9/11, about 1,000 fanatical Muslims in Denmark held a rally to celebrate Osama bin Laden, only five weeks before the general election in Denmark,“ he said. “The demonstrators gave the extreme right five more seats in the parliament.“
In 2006, the author Salmon Rushdie and the former Dutch legislator Ayaan Hirsi Alli called Islamism a “totalitarian global threat” and wrote that they would not be cowed by “the fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia,‘ a wretched concept that confuses criticism of Islam as a religion and stigmatization of those who believe in it.“
