Even Paranoids May Have Real Enemies

How Irrational Is ‘Islamophobia’?
A few headlines today at the Drudge Report:
This morning, I quoted a young Canadian feminist blogger who denounced “Islamophobia” as racial prejudice and “baseless hatred” that causes “the suffering of countless victims.” Meanwhile, there is this breaking news:
Two New York City women inspired by ISIS were arrested Thursday for allegedly plotting to set off a bomb, authorities said.
Noelle Velentzas, 28, and Asia Siddiqui, 31, allegedly conspired to prepare an explosive device they planned to detonate in a terror attack in the U.S., according to court documents.
Velentzas and Siddiqui were roommates from Queens. They are expected to appear in federal court in Brooklyn later Thursday afternoon. . . .
One more:  Death Toll 147 After Muslim Terrorists Target Christians at University in Kenya
The latest atrocity in the global jihad:
Up to 150 people have been murdered by masked al-Shabaab terrorists who stormed a Kenyan university and shot and beheaded Christians in the worst attack in the country in 17 years.
The group raided the Garissa University College campus shortly after 5am local time yesterday, overwhelming guards andmurdering people they suspected of being a Christian.
The death toll rose to 147 last night and the 13-hour siege ended. A total of 79 were injured and 587 were led to safety.
Most of those killed were students but two police officers, one soldier and two watchmen are among the dead. . . .
Islamic violence continues daily around the world. Most of this violent savagery goes unnoticed by the major U.S. media.Pamela Geller is one of the few sources who monitors the global jihad regularly. A few of her recent headlines:
UNHRC Confirms 200 Kidnapped Christian Girlsin Nigeria Murdered by Devout Muslim GroupMuslim mob attacks Sikh Temple in the UKTwo New York Muslim Women Arrested in Bomb PlotNo Insurance Available for Jewish Kindergartens in Belgium
Wait — what was that last headline?
A Belgian insurance company has refused to insure a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels.
The company claimed the risk of a terror attack on the European Jewish Association-run institution was too high.
EJA General Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin called on all European governments and heads of European Union institutions to provide security to all Jewish institutions that would satisfy insurance companies, and establish an alternative insurance mechanism that would secure any institution that might fall victim to anti-Semitic attacks.
Read the whole thing. This is both insane and unnecessary.
It is not irrational to to be suspicious of one of the major sources of international and domestic terrorism. Fear of nuclear power and global warming? Now those are irrational, especially when combined.
