  1. This is a very effective illustration. Unfortunately, those who foment the “Muslims are Coming!” hysteria are either (1) pushing their own agenda which requires Muslims’ to be seen as an enemy, or (2) convinced that all Muslims are inherently evil (and the big blue mass which is the majority are somehow pulling off the greatest conspiracy of human history by laying in wait over centuries just waiting, waiting, waiting for that right time to pounce; those who fit into this category see this and say “See! That’s what I’ve been saying all along!”). My two cents. Thanks for sharing this post.
