    How much do you agree with that statement?

    I for one know it is true. We have a serious problem with Islamophobia. People are actively attacking Muslims and challenging Islam like it is somehow related to violence and these attacks. Muslims and Islam are the greatest victims of terror attacks. We all need to ban together to safeguard the teachings of Islam and Muslims. Responsibility seems to be placed on these when a terror attack happens but it is false. It is more accurate to lay the blame on say Donald Trump who is fuelling the attacks.

    Ultimately islamophobia is born out of the actions of ISIS-owned/related terrorism (in the current feeling I mean) because they use Islam as the justification and purpose for their actions.

    Without Islam there would be no islamophobia so it is not the fault of the islamophobics that there is islamophobia nor is it Donald Trump's fault.

    What he is at fault for is using the general increase in islamophobia as a political tool and people are at fault for not realising that whilst Islam is ultimately at fault, the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not.

    I agree but Islamophobia is a greater threat nonetheless. Muslims are being attacked left, right and centre and Islam is being painted as a violent religion when it is quite the opposite. Other sects of society will never know what it's like to be at fear for your life just because of your culture or religion

    The terrifying thing is that some people actually think like this.

    I agree completely with Blondie. Islamophobia really does need to be tackled but there are other issues that deserve equal (and sometimes more) attention.

    I tentatively agree, depending on which issues you feel need more attention.

    I disagree, some things need more focus and with the rate at which Islamophobia grows and terrorism (caused solely by those like Donald trump and then blamed on Muslims), it needs swift action. The law needs to change so any criticism of Islam or Muslims faces prison

    I agree with him and he's free to say whatever he wants...who are you to tell what to say and not to say? No-one invited you to this thread so either you respect people opinions or you don't post a comment telling people to shut it!

    If you don't believe criticism against Muslims and Islam does not need to be tackled then you are part of the problem.

    You are a problem for thinking that the protection of criticism of Muslims and Islam is a form of Islamophobia.

    Sorry, I agree to disagree with you on that one. You could then say that for all religions. I think that imprisonment for any criticism is a bit extreme (not all criticisms are discriminatory), and it is quite close to breaching one's freedom of expression.
