Merriam-Webster online has no definition for “Islamophobia”! Why, it’s…it’s…an obvious case of, uh…what’s that word again?
Here’s a new job for Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper and his merry band of thugs at the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations: cry “Islamophobia” until Merriam-Webster picks up the trumped-up, politically manipulative, and substanceless word forthwith. Clearly the absence of a dictionary definition of the word is a sign of the all-pervasiveness of the concept itself, no?
Claire Berlinski writes about how the concept of “Islamophobia” was cooked up by a Muslim Brotherhood front group, the International Institute of Islamic Thought, in order to intimidate the ignorant and politically correct kuffar and make them too frightened to explore the ways in which Islamic jihadists and supremacists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and subjugation of unbelievers. And of course, among certain groups, it is working wonderfully well.
But Merriam-Webster’s lack of a listing shows the newness of this coinage. I expect they’ll hop to soon enough.
