While this observation would be equally descriptive of any Perception Control word – from gay to racist – it seems particularly apropos in light of the recent kidnapping of over 270 Christian schoolgirls by Muslims in Nigeria's Borno State.
The Congregation of the People of Tradition for Proselytism and Jihad, also known by its Hausa language name of Boko Haram has, since its founding by Mohammed Yusuf in 2002, been responsible for an estimated 10,000 deaths in Northern Nigeria – 1,500 in the first three months of 2014 alone. The stated purpose of this band of guerrillas is to purge Nigeria of "Western" influences and impose Sharia Law on the country. They have pledged to accomplish this through murder, arson, rape, and torture.
Yet, When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she refused to even classify Boko Haram as a terrorist group, despite numerous calls to do so from the CIA and the FBI. And on 7 May 2014, Secretary of State Kerry said that the Boko Haram atrocities are due to poverty (? ) (which makes marginally more sense than the British Guardian's suggestion that it was due to global warming). Kerry further referred to unspecified "legitimate concerns" of the murdering arsonist rapist kidnappers. Legitimate concerns??!! "Islamophobia," which literally means "fear of Islam" would seem to be most aptly descriptive of our government! Are they afraid to call Muslim terrorism terrorism? Is it because there is a Muslim terrorist in the White House?
Phobia, of course, is a word properly applied to describe a particularly unreasonable fear, such as a fear of closed places (claustrophobia) or a fear of heights (acrophobia). But the fear of having one's head cut off with a dull knife and the fear of female genital mutilation and the fear of having acid thrown in the face of young girls are hardly "unreasonable" fears. It might be argued that these are activities that ought not incite fear at all – but outrage!
In fact, in thinking and feeling people, these activities ought to incite horror and disgust, and I would suggest substituting the Greek misos (hatred, disgust) for phobe (fear) and coining the word "misislamy" to describe the proper response to Islam.
Unlike Islamophobia – an "unnatural" fear of Islam – misislamic sentiments cannot be attacked by the Perception Control police as "not normal," since they are a normal and natural reaction to the horror and depravity of Islam. So from now on, don't call me an Islamophobe – call me a misislamist.
