It is a source for an assertion that an Iranian
considers the inclusion of the Muhammad cartoon images a desecrating,
divisive and Islamophobic move.
i.e., it's a useful word to use against people who say something you
don't like, and gets less meaningful with expanded use, e.g.
- a minister raising concern
with health issues caused by inbreeding in the British Pakistani
community (where first-cousin marriage is common) is told that
noticing this issue "verges on Islamophobia." What?
I guess Christians wouldn't be amused about that Telegraph headline either.
