When Islamic jihadists set off two bombs last year at the Boston Marathon, murdering three people and wounded 260, maiming some for life, they brought to fruition not only their own plot, but the whole enterprise of making Americans think that there is a big problem of "Islamophobia" in this country. As this grim anniversary of the April 15, 2013 bombings approaches, it is useful to recall what the ongoing drumbeat over "Islamophobia" is really all about: enabling Islamic jihad murder.
The politically correct elites would have us believe that "Islamophobia" — defined as an irrational hatred of Muslims and Islam and attendant discrimination and harassment — is an epidemic in the U.S. St. Louis Public Radio, part of the NPR digital network, reported that "a 2013 report from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) identifies a network of 37 organizations that systematically promote anti-Muslim sentiment in America through prejudice, fear and hatred. CAIR calls it Islamophobia."
CAIR's report was just the latest. A steady stream of articles continuously appears about the "Islamophobia" industry, a supposedly well-coordinated, well-funded, unscrupulous and dishonest band of bigots, hatemongers and racists who are doing their utmost to disrupt what would otherwise be a peaceful and harmonious welcoming of Muslims into the United States and other Western nations.
