Pre-emptive Counterstrike Against "Islamophobia"

Gates of Vienna has issued an interesting graphic in response to the charge of Islamophobia:

The term “Islamophobe” is fast joining “racist”, “homophobe”, et al., as a reliable tool of politically-correct argument, a way of silencing the Left’s opponents and consigning dissenters to the phobic outer darkness beyond the pale of polite discourse.

Object to Hamas? You must be Islamophobic!

Want to scrutinize speakers of Farsi or Arabic more carefully at the airport? Islamophobe!

Objection to an ideology that demands accommodation with the stated goal of overcoming an changing using any means possible is not a phobia, it's common sense and self-defense.
