Addressed to a Mohammedan web site in connection with a severe outbreak of Islamophobia:
The “belief that Muslims pose a security or terrorist threat" may well be “false”, as you state. This is undoubtedly true of most Moslems.
You rightly point to “media bias” and other distasteful factors.
However you left out an Islamophobia-promoting factor that in my opinion is extremely important: the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Whichever way you cut it, Muhammad was a violent fanatic, a slave trader and an unscrupulous highway robber endowed with a particularly bloodthirsty outlook and a vicious temper.
MOHAMMED WAS A HEAVY-DUTY SON OF A BITCH.
Mohammed ordered his followers to make war on each other and on non-Moslems.
ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF WAR.
I suggest you devote part of your heroic struggle against Islamophobia to a thorough revision of your sacred writings and throw out about half of them -- the more bloodthirsty half.
I am certain that such an effort would help Moslems a great deal.
And non-Moslems too.
Peace be with you.
