Letter The Oz 3/5 A legitimate 'phobia'

A legitimate 'phobia'

THE value of Clive Kessler's theory ("Islam becomes the new guilt", 2/5) that we're all becoming Jew-haters to atone for Islamophobia is debatable, but I do have a problem with the term Islamophobia.
A phobia suggests an irrational fear. The last time I checked the local and international news, Muslims were busy killing each other, or attacking, bombing and beheading non-believers or threatening to do so, all in the name of Islam. There appears to be a very rational basis for Islamophobia.
