Phobia or Phed Up?

Arabs see phobia behind uproar over ports deal [via Drudge]

DUBAI (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers' strident opposition to a Dubai company controlling major seaports reflects a Western phobia of Arabs which could scare off other Middle East investors, Arab analysts said.

That's not a biased study at all.

Phobia: an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations

Islamics are simple, but I'm not afraid of them. How could I be afraid of anything or any one that stupid? Hey, Mr. Islam, kiss my Jewish tuchus. Nanny, nanny, boo boo. Quick, where are my colored pencils? I feel a sketch of Mohammed coming on!

The best part is, they'd love it if we were afraid of them. Western fear is a jihadist's wet dream; it is better and more satisfying than 72 celestial virgins. Fear from our side would indicate to them that they were in control, which is exactly what they want. They couldn't achieve that after murdering over 3,000 of us nearly five years ago, so now they're opting for the cheaper route and using the power of suggestion. First, the President claims that Congress is Islamophobic/Arabphobic when he throws out the veto threat yesterday afternoon. Now, Al-Reuters prints an article in which Arab "analysts" declare that the United States on the whole is Islamophobic. That article is going to get syndicated around the globe; by tomorrow, analysts will be all over prime-time news, discussing "Islamophobia in America." Before you know it, we'll be paying reparations to the families of the 9/11 bombers as an act of apology for this non-existent phobia.

Discredit, discredit, discredit. Don't argue, don't discuss, don't present a panel of opposing viewpoints to fill a segment or two. Call it for what it is; diagnose the problem before it kills us all.
