I believe that an irrational fear (yes fear) of Islam and Muslims is prevails in many parts of the world. This is what I call Islamophobia. People literally feel less secure when there is are individuals that merely look like Muslims around. Sikh temples have been gunned down because people have mistaken them from mosques.
People, without knowing much about Islam or Muslims, assume that Islam only teaches violence and all Muslims seek to dominate the world.
I think that the best way for a person to overcome an irrational fear of Islam is by getting to know an actual Muslim. Please click the link below to hear this idea presented by Reza Aslan.
