The night Islamic terrorists unleashed their wrath on Paris, France, I predicted the predatory left would blame xenophobia.
The lunacy of the predatory left is oh-so predictable that it may be pathological.
That is, liberalism should be identified as a mental disorder and listed in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the American Psychiatric Association's standard reference for psychiatry.
Liberals, like many suffering from mental disorders, are out of touch with reality.
A case in point is an article published by The Guardian.
The fight against Islamophobia is going backwards, the headline laments.
The predatory left imagines patriotism is Islamophobia. Such delusions may be due to schizophrenia or some other seriously debilitating mental disease.
The article says patriotism (called xenophobia by the delusional left) "plays directly into the hands of extremists who claim that western societies will never accept Islam and its followers."
Translation: If Westerners weren't so hateful and irrationally fearful of the world's largest hate group with a 1,400-year history of blowing things up, murdering millions, tossing gay people off tall buildings, and treating women like goats, Muslims would abruptly end their centuries-old campaigns of terror.

Islamophobia does not only affect British Muslims; it plays directly into the hands of extremists who claim that western societies will never accept Islam and its followers. Challenging this type of prejudice thus goes hand-in-hand with any successful counter-extremism strategy, the latest of which the home secretary has outlined.
It is for this reason that, in the aftermath of the 2010 general election, Sayeeda Warsi worked hard to form a government working group on anti-Muslim hatred. Against the backdrop of her warning in 2011 that Islamophobia had “passed the dinner-table test”, the then Conservative minister brought together representatives from Muslim communities, anti-racism groups and academia.
The group was launched in 2012 and was based in the Department for Communities and Local Government, which until 2015 was under the control of Eric Pickles. For those who grasped the role of Islamophobia in fuelling support for extremism, the formation of the group was a no-brainer: bring representatives together, show British Muslims that their grievances are taken as seriously as, say, antisemitism and racism, and tackle head-on one of the core claims that violent Islamists make to ordinary Muslims: “western governments are not interested in helping you”, or “they’ll help the Jews but not you”.
