Eponymous phobia

 Phobia? What phobia?
Islamophobia is indeed a terrible scourge! However, contrary to popular belief, Islamophobia is an evil of great antiquity.  No less an authority  than the  OIC {Organization of the Islamic Conference, HQ in Jedda, Saudi Arabia] has announced that Islamophobia first raised its ugly head very shortly after the Messenger of God, Muhammad (pbuh), breathed his last in the year of Our Lord 632, if memory serves.   
Consequently Islamophobia is as old as Islam!
Islamophobia is Islam’s Doppelgänger, so to speak.
Now why on earth would such a wave of detestation arise so precociously against such a harmless religion? Let us look for historical analogies … hmm … Buddhistophobia? Nope.  Confucianismophobia? Can’t recall having  heard about it. Hinduphobia? I draw a blank. Zoroastranismophobia? Doesn’t ring a bell.
Apparently Islam is unique in that it is the only widespread religion equipped with an eponymous phobia. That is certainly remarkable.
Now let us think of some other unique characteristics of Islam:

1.         Which is the only religion all of whose able-bodied male members at one time MADE THEIR LIVING AS BANDITS?
2.         Which is the only religion whose FOUNDER PRESIDED AT MASS EXECUTIONS of hundreds of captives?
3.         Which is the only religion whose MEMBERS ARE COMMANDED TO MURDER those who criticize their religion or attempt to disown it? 
4.         Which is the only religion that has ITS OWN METHODS OF EXECUTION?
5.         Which is the only religion whose FOUNDER WAS A  professional SLAVE TRADER? 
6.         Which is the only religion that expressly proposes to SPREAD THROUGH MILITARY CONQUEST and makes provision for SLAVERY, OPPRESSION of subject peoples, and the like?
7.         Which is the only religion that HAD ITS OWN ARMY practically from the beginning?
8. Which is the only religion that expressly ENCOURAGES HATRED OF OUTSIDERS, and most of whose ETHICAL COMMANDS PROTECT ONLY THE FAITHFUL?
9. Which is the only religion whose sacred writings contain dozens, if not HUNDREDS, OF EXHORTATIONS TO MURDER certain people, and sometimes even prescribes the method of execution?

You know, just conceiving of an imaginary religion endowed with these characteristics makes me feel nauseous.

When are you blockheads going to  understand that WE HATE ISLAM BECAUSE ISLAM IS EXCEEDINGLY ODIOUS?
