Were they not so ignorant and bigoted, I would find the multitude of anti-Islamic views spewed out by certain blocks of US and European media and politicians stupidly funny. It's like a runaway train on board which is a who's who of fear mongers, bigots and isolationists jockeying for airtime and votes.
Thankfully we can still count on sane heads to counter these dark-age views.
There are people like Dean Obeidallah who has given us his very astute and witty "The Muslim Double Standard" which can be found here.
Meanwhile Glenn Greenwald does a rundown of the latest and greatest media double standards here.
There is much to do in the Arab and Islamic world, a great deal of improvement and progress yet to be made. But we are not crazed and bloodthirsty madmen and women who are on a mission to subjugate the West.
Every society has its extremists.
Me, I went to a school whose motto was "Ex Oriente Lux", Light from the East. I and millions of others like me have this light deep within our hearts and souls. It is genuine, it is warm and it is sincere.
