That is an understandable result of America's relationship with Israel.
Prior to the first WTC bombing we didn't hear much about Islamic terrorism
Only if we were living in a cave with no access to the news media. Numerous
airliner hijackings, the Munich Olympics massacre, the kidnapping of OPEC
oil ministers, The Achille Lauro hijacking and so on and so forth--ring any
bells with you? Terrorism by or on behalf of various Palestinian factions
or otherwise related to U.S. foreign policy in the middle east was kind of a
major news story for several decades, it's odd you missed it.
I think Munich is in Germany... just one example. I'm sure you can
figure out what I mean by "here".
Oh please, Americans being kidnapped and killed didn't count if it happened outside the borders of the U.S.? Terrorism by Islamic extremists wasn't invisible before they got around to striking on U.S. soil, and the association between Islam and terrorism in the American popular mind didn't magically materialize on 9/11.
No, I'm pointing out that mockery of Christians is mostly aimed at
Christians who behave like idiots, e.g. snake-handlers, supporters of
money-grubbing TV preachers, holier-than-thou preachers caught with hookers
and so on. I happen to reject mockery of people simply because they have
And mockery of Muslims is aimed at fundamentalists terrorists, Muslims who
support women having no rights, etc.
An American Airlines pilot refused to allow an armed Arab-American Secret Service Agent on a flight to Texas where he was to join Pres. Bush's protection detail. Post 9/11 Sikhs in the U.S. have repeatedly been victims of hate crimes because they were mistaken for being Muslim. Proposed mosques in various locations have generated furious opposition, the most famous of which is near Ground Zero in NYC, on the same block where there has been a mosque for decades (and quite near the site of the WTC which also contained a mosque. A series of states have proposed laws to prohibit the imposition of Sharia law despite there being no chance of that ever happening. High-profile public figures have speculated that the President of the United States is secretly a Muslim--and so on and so forth. But bias against Muslims only involves terrorists and those who suppress women huh? Get real.
