David Aaronovitch takes on Douglas Murray over Islamophobia

Writing in the Jewish Chronicle, David Aaronovitch replies to Douglas Murray’s recent article denying any parallel between Islamophobia and antisemitism, in which Murray claimed that “the word ‘Islamophobia’ is a crock” and is “used against critics of anything said or done in the name of Islam”. A sceptic might respond that Aaronovitch is not averse to promoting a bit of Islamophobia himself. All the same, he makes some good points here.
