Here's something I'll be you didn't know: November was Islamophobia Awareness Month. It was promoted mostly in Europe and the UK.
Here's how some people observed it. In Florida, two Muslim brothers were arrested and charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction to commit mass murder of Americans. In Tehran, Muslims brutally murdered and dismembered a Jewish woman because they wanted her property for an adjoining mosque. In Baghdad, Sunni Muslims used three car bombs to murder 23 Shi'ite Muslims. In Norway, a Muslim politician said: "Damn Jew whores. I wish Hitler could come back and shower you some more." In Mali, Muslim officials arrested three Catholics for the crime of declining to listen to an Islamic sermon.
There's more, much more, but you get the message. Nothing to fear -- and if you do, you're an Islamophobe.
