ISLAMOPHOBIA WATCH: Anti Muslim Racism: Islamophobia Watch was initiated in January 2005 as a non-profit-making project to document material in the public domain which advocates a fear and hatred of the Muslim peoples of the world and Islam as a religion. READ MORE

Islamophobia and Anti-Americanism Book Excerpts: Islamophobia refers to unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam. Such fear and hostility leads to discriminations against Muslims, exclusion of Muslims from mainstream political or social process, stereotyping, the presumption of guilt by association, and finally hate crimes.

Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia - Lessons From History: Alexander Gainem traces the origins of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in European history, drawing an analogy between the two concepts and foreseeing more violence if Islamophobia is not taken more seriously.

Right from day one, they did their level best to kill it in the bud using different ways. READ MORE
