If the same exact criticisms being made against Islam today were also made centuries ago, is it reasonable to dismiss them all as “Islamophobic”— that is, as “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam,” as theCouncil on American Islamic Relations would have it?
The Obama administration has just announced its intent to ban all words that allude to Islam from important national security documents. Put differently, the Obama administration has just announced its intent to ban all knowledge and context necessary to confront and defeat radical Islam (news much welcomed by Islamist organizations like CAIR).

O Islão deve parecer uma religião paradoxal para os não-muçulmanos. Se, por um lado, ele é constantemente retratado como a religião da paz, por outro lado, seus adeptos são responsáveis pela maioria dos ataques terroristas ao redor do mundo. Apologistas do Islão gostam de enfatizar que o Islão é uma fé construída sobre padrões éticos elevados; outros salientam que é uma religião da lei.

D’un côté, on ne cesse de la présenter comme la religion de la paix et, de l’autre, ses membres sont responsables de la majorité des actes terroristes dans le monde. Les apologistes de l’islam soulignent que cette foi se fonde sur une grande exigence éthique. Les autres constatent qu’il s’agit d’une religion légaliste.
