An Islamic "expert" states that Islamophobia is racist, it is bigoted, it causes Muslims harm, suffering, or hurt feelings. Warner makes the same point as I've made elsewhere; that Islamophobia has no metaphysical power to physically harm anyone. It has the potency of the term "jerk" or "doofus." Muslims in the UK, however, are demanding full legal protection from "Islamophobia," and the definition of "Islamophobia" has finally been articulated:
is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of
Muslimness or perceived Muslimness."
