In our time, there have been several malignant and fatal strains of organized Islam as recognized by the Muslims themselves. For instance, many, if not most, Muslims agree that both al-Qaeda and Hezbollah are destructive international terror organizations. Hence, speaking against them should not be the monopoly of Muslims nor should criticizing these terror entities be labeled "Islamophobia." It is the right and responsibility of every citizen to combat terrorism and maintain world peace.
