A phobia is an irrational fear. I have a wholly rational fear about people who seem to want to kill me and run my country according to medieval theocratical laws. Ergo, I am not Islamophobic. I am reasonable. Comment 1 by Stevehill

Even if you are as reasonable as you claim, you can't claim that everybody is as reasonable as you. Yet, you give the impression that you think Baroness Warsi wants to kill you and, at the same time, make you live under unspecified medieval laws.

That's funny, because it seemed quite clear to me that Steve was not talking about Baroness Warsi, but the followers of islam who regularly demand "sharia now" and the beheading of those who insult islam. A fear of whom, I would judge to be the epitome of reason.

Then I realised it was you Hugh. . .
