      Many countries in the EU have classified Islamophobia as caused by racism. They suggest that

      “Islamophobia is a form of racism in the sense that it is the result of the social construction of a group as a race and to which specificities and stereotypes are attributed” [1]

      [1] European Network against Racism

      Do you agree?

      If not, why not?

      I disagree because Muslim is not a racial designation, prejudice would be a more accurate term to describe someone who judged an individual based on their faith system. Many Muslims(#notall) view someone who doesn’t believe in their god as inferior and worthy of death if not converted then turn around and cry persecution or racism when someone simply challenges their beliefs speaks volumes about that portion of Muslims.
