The premise is simply false

For example in France, the ministry of interior has come out with stats for 2018:

  • Acts against christians : more than 1 000
  • Acts agains jews : more than 500 (+74%)
  • Acts against muslims: 100 (lowest level since 2010).. Note : muslims are about 10 times as numerous as jews in France and about 5 to 7 times less numerous than christians... It makes muslims statistically the LEAST susceptible to religious hatred, far behind jews...



This is before we even go into the politically loaded "islamophobia" term designed to stiffle any criticism of Islam

Really, Al Jazeera as a source?

Not letting immigrants flood your country doesn't equal Islamophobia, criticising Islam where it should be criticised isn't Islamophobia either.

Islamophobia is a politically loaded term with questionable meaning in this context.

criticize the message not the messenger, if you actually had listened the debate, the guy infact gives away his islamophobia in a pretty evident manner. He doesnt seem to rebut any point made by the host and seem to be targeting only ''islamic'' asylum seekers here not others.

Looks like an Islam victim narrative thread. You might just ask why in England (to talk about my own country) we don't have any perceived problem with Sikhophobia, Hinduphobia etc.? Might it just be that large-scale immigration by Muslims brings particular problems that can provoke a sometimes misguided counterreaction, that one doesn't get in the case of other religions? So if one is to have a meaningful discussion, 'Islamphobia' had to be considered in relation to the problems that Islam provokes, and it has to be recognized that Muslims are not just passive victims of prejudice.

criticize the message not the messenger,
Al jaeera's positions and bias (and funding) are quite well known, and the use of the term islamophobia by them is anything but innocent or objective... They are repeatedly guilty of finding "islamophobia" where it does not exist

I wont even comment on the "host" (Mehdi Hassan), who is also known for his rabid positions... He starts right off by saying "I''ll ask my guest if he is defending a racist immigration policy"... Great start, one cannot be more biased than that....

They are using this word as a weapon, along with nationalism and racism.
