‘Keeping those Muslims out of our country’


This is why Muslims outside the U.S. think the war on terror is a war on Islam. This is why Muslim leaders complain of an Islamophobic culture in America. This is—regardless of the reality that some young American Muslims believe their faith justifies suicide bombings—abject religious discrimination.

This ... is what I heard on NPR while driving home: David Greene asking an average Republican in Council Bluffs, Iowa about the war in Iraq:

“I am so proud of the men and women who fight for us. I am so proud of the ones who have died for us because they are the ones keeping us free and the ones keeping those Muslims out of our country.”
