DC: Muslim researcher complains that war on terror was “rooted in Islamophobia” and “exclusively targeted Muslims”
Jihad Watch – “The goal is to really underscore how the war on terror is so rooted in Islamophobia and to really lift up the story of the ways that Muslims have been impacted.”
The irony here is that for the most part, the “war on terror” scrupulously avoided even the appearance of “Islamophobia” by dissembling about and deflecting from the motivating ideology that underlay the 9/11 jihad attacks. The Obama administration’s entire counterterror program, for example, was called Countering Violent Extremism, and never mention Islam or jihad in the context of terrorism at all. Bush, Obama and numerous other American officials repeatedly denied that Islam was anything but peaceful. But now Maha Hilal is here to tell us that the war on terror was “rooted in Islamophobia.” Pull my other leg.

Ok. So, what is the root of Islamic terrorism? Infidelphobia?
