Fake phobia is preventing much-needed Islam reform
by Rowan Dean
"Islamaphobia" is a manufactured left wing concept. Literally. It was made up in 1997 by a British left wing think tank called the Runnymede Trust.
Although the word had appeared in theological texts earlier with a far more limited meaning, the Runnymede definition created a phony problem and in doing so built a fraudulent victimhood industry.
The new term was then exploited by Britain's Labour Party to stifle any criticism of its disastrous policies towards immigration in general and Muslims in particular.
