from opednews:

"How did Muslims become objects of fear and dread?"

By practicing their Qu'ran?
By Jihad?
By 9-11?

"Islamophobia" is valid only if all the above are false.

I think this "Prof." is a rather uninformed--and, therefore, dangerous--person.

She gets it all mixed up.

Norton, you are a idio t, you have no idea, try living with scum that takes over wherever it goes, wants its foods, its laws and its rights above the rights of people that where born and bread in those countries and they get them.

No norton Islam is the biggest enemy of mankind, bigger than nature, wars or whatever the universe can throw at us.
Islam wants not just to take o er, its doing it at a alarming rate and when they stand at your door and demand your head for what you wear, you'll change your mind, just way too late you ignorant bi tch.

How can there be a richer and more diverse democratic life when the people we make room for have no respect for democracy, freedom of speech and punish people for thought crimes?

This author is going by the people she knows and sees. She looks out the window and sees people moving peacefully about and concludes there is no problem. This is liberal ninnyhood at its best.

I don't know anybody connected to the drug trade so I should conclude that there is no drug problem in US.

Muslims harbor a violent faction that is in the massacre business.

The author of the article is not really projecting his own experience into the article much from what I could tell. It is primarily an interview of the author of the book-who lives in Pennsylvania in a university town.

Right. I am speaking of the book's author who apparently thinks that just because the people she meets and observes aren't directly in the terror business that all is well.

Most muslims are not terrorists, they just support it one way or another. They just want their bully boys to bash society until everyone is forced to follow islamic modes and independent thought is crushed.

Nothing like calling the kettle black eh Joe.
"Oho!" said the pot to the kettle;
"You are dirty and ugly and black!
Sure no one would think you were metal,
Except when you're given a crack."
"Not so! not so!" kettle said to the pot;
"'Tis your own dirty image you see;
For I am so clean – without blemish or blot –
That your blackness is mirrored in me."

This is a very misguided view. muslims are not feared. They are despised, detested,opposed and severely disliked....but feared? No.

"Live and let live" is the antithesis of your qu'ran, Tom.
