Reader’s Comment: Nothing irrational about my fear of radical Islamists


In response to Jane Kelly: After the Bataclan fear is not a crime and tolerance not enough, english_pensioner wrote:

If I criticise Muslims in any way I’m accused of “Islamophobia”.
The dictionary definition of a ‘phobia’ is ‘an irrational fear’.
I would suggest that my fear is entirely rational. I am worried that a significant percentage of Muslims subscribe to the more extreme interpretations of their religion, which advocate the killing or enslavement of all those who don’t subscribe to their beliefs.
I believe that I have a perfectly rational fear that I, or my family, could be killed by one of these believers in Islam and that in no way do I suffer from Islamophobia.
