Was the term "Islamophobia" invented by the Mullahs of Iran or other Islamists?[edit]

I have on multiple occasion heard that the term "Islamophobia" was invented by either Ayatollah Khomeini or "the Mullahs" of Iran or "Islamists" in general to silence criticism of their antiques. Is that accurate? Does anybody know more about this? And no, I don't have sources, that's why I ask... Evil Zionist (talk) 17:46, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

That Trump quote[edit]

I think Islam hates us.
—Donald Trump

The exact quote doesn't encapsulate Islamophobia, so it shouldn't be a the top or in the article at all. If the quote is there to take jabs at Trump, put it in his article, not here, where it belongs.—Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:41, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

Seems pretty damn Islamophobic to me, and he's effectively the president of the free world (the horror), and so it is valid to have it there - to show that the rot quite literally starts at the top. While there are some Islamic countries like Iran that are well-known for having a long enmity with America (Iran is famous for the slogan "Death to America!!!"), it is not true that the entire religion of Islam "hates America", and Trump was blatantly shit-stirring once again with that comment.--Greenrd (talk) 09:44, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
