Some would explain Islamophobia as simply referring to the fear of Islam.
Dennis Prager puts it differently. He claims that Islamophobia has one purpose. That is, "to suppress any criticism, legitimate or not, of Islam."
Here we refer to it in a general way. Anything that relates to the overwhelming impact that Islam has on our lives today, falls under this category.
A few decades ago, most people would have stated that the greatest threats to mankind were nuclear weapons or the Communist threat from the Soviet Union.
Today, things have changed - drastically.
There are major population shifts in Europe and the impact that the Islamic countries have is rapidly increasing.
The threats of proliferation of nuclear weapons is growing. Smaller rogue countries with radical leaders are more dangerous today than any other time.
Vigilance against all threats is necessary to retain the freedom we so cherish.
