1) Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change.
Doesn't think make a huge majority of devout Muslims Islamophobic? I mean the main tenets is that Islam is a undivided ummah that has one creed and changes ( innovations) are haram?
2) Islam is seen as separate and 'other'. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them.
I understand the the 'other' from a basis of Orientalism, but isn't that what hardliner Muslims say? That they are unique that their values do not change and are not influenced by others?
3) Islam is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist
This I can understand as a holistic issue.
5) Islam is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage.
Isn't this what Muslims say it is? A holistic political, economic, and social ideology?
6) Criticisms made of the West by Islam are rejected out of hand.
This I can understand
7) Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society.
This I can understand, but exclusion from mainstream society is taught by the more hardline clerics.
