    I really don't want to start an argument which uses stereotypes and racism to justify an argument, so ok.
    How is that racist?

    Suggesting that there is something inherent in Islamic culture that causes a people to be violent and criminal is racist.

    But where does this relate to anything genetic, i.e. a race, as opposed to people who are only different because of what they believe?

    Islamophobia is a form of racism. The usual objection to defining it in that way is that muslims are not a race. But since all racists are socially and politically constructed rather than reliant on the reality of any biological race, it is perfectly possible for cultural markers associated with muslimness (forms of dress, rituals, languages ect) to be turned into racial signifiers. -Adun kundnani

    Islam is not a race. Therefore it is impossible to be racist to someone by focusing only on their race. Cultural signifiers, such as my western T shirt and shorts, do not make me racially western and speaking English is not why I am racially English.

    People apply 'racism' to any kind of criticism or prejudice or anything else in order to get more attention from it. It makes no sense at all when used outside of genetics.

    You can't call something racist because you want to feel important.

    Their point was that islam was the problem. Mine is that the vandalism and criminal damage has little to do with islam. If you disagree that islam isn't the problem, what is the point? I'm confused.
    Do you condemn attacks on Jewish businesses?

    Why do you think that people protesting ostensibly against Israel would attack Jewish targets like synagogues and Jewish shops?

    Hello again! I disagree with any innocents being attacked! I disagree with anti-semetism and racism full stop. I don't care of their jewish or buddist. So yes. I do condemn them. Also they're anti-semetic, I'm not denying that.

    What, wearing clothes and speaking is a racial? Yeah what an appropriate comparison.

    This has also been happening in Germany, a country where chanting slogans such as 'gas the Jews' would usually be considered a serious hate crime. Funnily enough though, when Muslims do it, none of them get arrested.

    I'm seriously sick of Muslims getting special treatment.
