ISLAMOPHOBIA, n. 1) The unspeakable act of pointing out that acts committed in the name of Islam might have something to do with Islam; 2) The ever popular American mass participation sport of scapegoating and further victimizing an already victimized minority.

Unfortunately, while both definitions are accurate, those who accept one will never accept the other. This provides an example of yet another popular American mass participation sport, rejection of reality.
