Islamotopia shows a kind of negative image and hatred toward Islam and Muslims. So that it has resulted in discriminatory and harming behaviors against them. Though the roots of this phenomenon go back to old times, the passage of time has brought new topics. Since the 9/11 attacks Islamophobia and anti-Islamism have experienced a great increase. Many of the political activists and western media have used the 9/11 attacks as an instrument for the spread of Islamophobia. American right-wing Christians were one of active groups. Though different Islamic movements do not approve al- Qaida's attacks, they realize continuous interventions of the West in the Islamic countries as the reason for the radical reactions of al-Qaida. The Islamic Republic of Iran as one of the main Islamic resistances against West's dominance does not approve terrorism and is after thwarting West's project of spreading Islamophobia.
