Islamophobia, the United States, and Israel

Islamophobia plays a key role in building and sustaining public and U.S. government backing for Israel.

Right-wing Christian and Jewish groups dedicated to denying the fundamental rights of Palestinians deliberately fuel fear of Muslims and Arabs (commonly assumed to be Muslims) to push their agenda in the Middle East.

Unwavering support of Israeli policies contributes to the characterization of Muslims and all Arabs as the “enemy” and to the perpetuation of Islamophobia, or the failure to speak out against it. A money-Islamophobia-Israel network—bound by ideology, money, and overlapping institutional affiliations—both furthers a rabidly anti-Muslim climate in this country and helps bolster the state-sponsored Islamophobic and anti-Palestinian policies adopted and promoted by the U.S. government.
