Definition of Islamophobia: Dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.
“you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – (Mark 12:30-31)
In the same way that Nigerians are not all criminals; Albanians are not all drug dealers, prostitutes, or thieves; white people are not all racist; and I can go on till infinity on this list. So also not all Muslims condone violence.
With that in mind, as Christians, especially people of colour that have suffered from racism, prejudice, and any other forms of cultural, economic or social biases, we should be more discerning.
Muslims are human beings created in God’s image and likeness as we are, therefore there is no place for Islamophobia in Christianity.
We should be advocates of this truth, not the propaganda machine of the Establishment.
I could quote countless scriptures to strengthen this argument, but I feel led to leave it as this.
