maldoror,

The term "terrorophobia" is used in journalism.

An example:

Are Americans suffering from Terrorophobia?

however,
If you feel it's mor appropriate to use "terrorism-phobia" then, no prob.
for me, They both refer to one meaning.

Hilal,
Exactly! It is a term. A neologism. It does not figure in dictionaries yet (as far as I know). That is why it should be put between inverted commas, because this word might die or be replaced in the future.

Nice post Hilal; sadly it seems that the victims of terrorophobia are increasing everyday

Who isn't in phobia from the current events???

It is one thing to recover from a war, even a brief one, in which one-quarter of a country's population was forced to flee their homes, damage is obvious and the attackers are still keeping supplies out.

Americans, OTOH, are encouraged daily by the Republican majority party - yes, daily now since it is election season - to fear the attacks of five years ago and respond by abandoning the rights guaranteed every citizen in the Bill of Rights and by supporting wars against countries that had nothing to do with the attacks of five years ago.

The terrorists have apparently won in this godforsaken land. The Reichstag burned down on 9/11, and for five years we have had precious little governance from the congress.

Midterms loom, but I do not know if Democrats will gain either house or senate, or if the new voting computers will be allowed to register a real vote.
