“If you want to free a society, just give them internet access. Because people, the young guys, you know, are all going to go out and see biased media, see the truth about other nations and their own nation and they’re going to be able to contribute and collaborate together.”
▸ [USA] Islamophobia and Foreign Policy, To the Point, KCRW Radio [link to audio]

From September 11, 2001 to this weekend’s murders in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, it’s reported that Sikhs have been attacked because they’re mistaken for Muslims. Meantime, Mitt Romney and even President Obama are accused of distancing themselves from American Muslims?  What’s the underlying message? Is it okay to attack people because they believe in Islam?  Is America’s political culture encouraging an atmosphere of hostility? Also, Egypt launches a Military strike on Sinai to root out militants, and Romney claims Obama is gutting welfare to work rules.

Recollection from Bush Jr Presidency to today - people who actually worked in politics talk about how it’s been changing and what remains as major/persistent problems. 

Wasn’t that bad. 

Though I really want some persistent, real concrete ‘tracking’ on the issue of ‘Islamophobia’ in USA. to keep educate, inform and inspire public (*Along with Antisemitism).
