Islamophobia Documentation

Islamophobia is a dangerous and unique phenomenon that has become an ever increasing part of all of our lives though some of us may not be aware of it.  It has existed since Muhammad (saws) began preaching the message of Pure Monotheism in Mecca.  It is not an exaggeration to state in the face of overwhelming evidence that Islamophobia is one of the last accepted forms of racism, in the sense that it is racialized in the United States and is very alive in other Western nations.

At it’s worst Islamophobia can lead to violence such as genocide, murder, beatings, assault, arson, etc.  At it’s most benign Islamophobia can lead to subtle forms of discrimination such as at the workplace or airport.  A working definition of Islamophobia was provided by The Runnymede Trust that identified eight components they say define Islamophobia:

1) Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change.
2) Islam is seen as separate and ‘other’. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them.
3) Islam is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist.
4) Islam is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of terrorism and engaged in a ‘clash of civilisations’.
5) Islam is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage.
6) Criticisms made of the West by Islam are rejected out of hand.
7) Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society.
8) Anti-Muslim hostility is seen as natural or normal. (

In response to this it is ever more urgent and important to bring together the disparate sources and websites that are documenting Islamophobia and Islamophobes in the USA and around the globe.  In this regard there are some valuable sources on the internet and on the shelves.  I will be listing them on this page.

One Response to “Islamophobia Documentation”


  1. Thanks for this amazing list of links! I could stay up all night with these and never get around to photoshopping the people on the “racists” list! You trapped me, dangit! OK, so I’ve written on two of the A-OK blogs listed but I’m sad now! My humble little mockery mill isn’t listed:( Are we just too silly over there with my bad pshops and general goofyness over the cannibalistic Blog Wars we post on? Don’t make me pshop you into Bigfoot here, don’t leave me all sad! OK, I’m just messing with you.

    One site I noticed absent from your “racists” list (and I realize that there are just unfortunately too many people and sites for you to really list here) though is thereligionofpeace.com, which regularly runs in it’s “articles” section pieces from the people on your list. Check that out. Also, my story is a bit unique in terms of my blogging about the self-described “counter-jihadis”. Mail me sometime and I’ll tell you just what an odd one out I am;)
