    Islamophobia is a made up word, which according to the online Oxford English Dictionary was first used in 1923; and is etymologically a combination of Islamo- and -phobia.

    However, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic are both valid constructs using recognised words from the English dictionary. The Semites were a race of people. All of the uses of Semitic and Semitism can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary.

    All words are made up words .

    Islamophobia is a valid construct of a recognised word - ISLAM . You can look up the definition of Islam in the dictionary.

    As such, it’s a recognised phrase along with terms such as anti-semetic (a phrase coined approx 80 years prior to Islamophobia) etc. it’s been in existence for over a 100 years - this qualifies it to be part of the English lexicon.


    The word Islamophobia is a neologism[28] formed from Islam and -phobia, a Greek suffix used in English to form "nouns with the sense 'fear of – – ', 'aversion to – – '."[29]

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word means "Intense dislike or fear of Islam, esp. as a political force; hostility or prejudice towards Muslims". It is attested in English as early as 1923[30]to quote the French word islamophobie, found in a thesis published by Alain Quellien in 1910 to describe "a prejudice against Islam that is widespread among the peoples of Western and Christian civilization".[31]The expression did not immediately turn into the vocabulary of the English-speaking world though, which preferred the expression "feelings inimical to Islam", until its re-appearance in an article by Georges Chahati Anawati in 1976.[32] The term did not exist in the Muslim world,[a] and was later translated in the 1990s as ruhāb al-islām (رُهاب الإسلام) in Arabic, literally "phobia of Islam".[31]

    The Arab migrants that now describe themselves as Palestinian are semites too.

    It's used to shut down criticism of Jews, for example George Soros an atheist Jew funds lots of terrible **** but merely mentioning his name & the ADL demand it gets Shut Down .
    They are top of the tree for protected characteristics
