ISLAMOPHOBIA is a very justifiable fear of Muslims

The average person faces greater danger from Muslims than from other dangers that we also fear, such as sharks or lightning. But no one would call you sharkophobic if you were afraid to swim in the ocean.

American ThinkerAccording to the ISAF, in 2009, there were 61 unprovoked shark attacks worldwide, resulting in five deaths and 56 injured.

Lightning is more dangerous than sharks. According to NOAA, in 2009, 34 Americans died from lightning strikes. Worldwide, the estimate is about a thousand deaths and five thousand injuries annually.

But Islamic terrorism is even more dangerous. According to the U.S. State Department report on terrorist attacks in 2009, about 5500 identified terrorist attacks worldwide were associated with Sunni Islamists. That’s the high end of the scale. By contrast, another list showing only attacks involving Islamic radicals indicates that they were only responsible for about 1,900 world-wide attacks in 2009. Still, those resulted in more than nine thousand deaths and 18,500 injuries.


The average person is thirty times more likely to be attacked by a Muslim than a shark, and hundreds of times more likely to be killed by one. But it’s not wrong to be “Sharkophobic,” even though the risk is infinitely small. There are good reasons to fear sharks.

1) Predatory – Sharks are dangerous predators that attack when we are vulnerable. Their attacks are sudden, unexpected, and very hard to defend against.

2) Single-minded – Sharks are single-minded and pursue their own objectives. This predatory behavior is controlled by instincts and criteria that I don’t understand.

3) Uncaring – Sharks don’t care about me or my concerns. I cannot get a shark to accept me as a person of value worthy of life.

4) Fear – The shark’s reputation as a cold-blooded killer causes the mere appearance of one to produce fear.

Apparently, the reality is that there are also many Muslims who fit the same basic criteria.

1) Predatory –  Muslim extremists are also dangerous predators who attack when we are vulnerable. Their attacks are sudden, unexpected, and very hard to defend against.

2) Single-minded – Muslim extremists are single-minded and pursue only their own objectives. This predatory behavior is controlled by a worldview and a set of criteria that few of us understand. (Further, those who do understand it make it clear that we could not accept it as normative without massively disruptive changes to our lives.)

3) Uncaring –  Muslims extremists do not care about me or my concerns. In fact, they do not value anyone who doesn’t precisely share their own specific interpretations of Islam. (As a result, the vast majority of their victims are also Muslim.)

4) Fear – It is the intent of these Muslims to produce fear — that’s why we call them “terrorists.” Terror is part of the method they employ to get compliance to their demands. It should not surprise us when they succeed in generating fear that greatly contributes to “Islamophobia.”

5) Announced Intent — There is a fifth dangerous element unique to these people. They have repeatedly “declared war” on us, our religion, our political system, and our way of life. As proof of their intent, they have conducted violent attacks inside our country, using attackers who live among us and hide their malicious intent until it is too late. Their deception involves extensive lying and efforts to appear “normal” so that they can attack without warning.

* Who would have thought that a mild-mannered Saudi national, who was college-educated in Germany and who had been  in this country for more than a year learning to fly commercial jets, would have led the most vicious attack against      civilians in U.S. history?

* Who would have thought that a U.S.-born practicing psychiatrist, an Army officer, sent through medical school by the Army, would have unexpectedly attacked random soldiers in his own workplace, killing thirteen and wounding thirty?

It is logical to be fearful of Muslims because a certain percentage of them, who deliberately deceive everyone about their intentions, are extremely dangerous.

Unfortunately, this is bad for the rest of the Islamic faith. We can’t tell them apart — until it is too late. It seems to me that this logical fear will cause the Muslim faith as a whole to suffer growing isolation. Since I fear sharks, I do not go into the water when they are around, and I get out if they show up. The same withdrawal reaction is rational when dealing with Muslims.
