Stephan Salisbury, author of Mohamed’s Ghosts: An American Story of Love and Fear in the Homeland, discusses his article “Islam-Baiting Doesn’t Work” at tomdispatch.com; the increased popularity of Islam-bashing in political campaigns – despite the fact most practitioners in 2010 lost their elections; the real facts on Sharia law “taking over” the US justice system (and if you’re still scared, get out of the bunker, take a look outside and be comforted by the lack of marauding religious police); and the political – not religious -motivations of those arrested in FBI terrorism stings.

  1. A bigger danger than Muslims taking over the USA is Protestant Fundamentalists turning it into a copy of Puritan Massachusetts!

  2. I completely agree; as a libertarian who is an atheist, I think that is very real terrifying prospect.

  3. We live in a Homeland.

  4. Frank Gaffney, the guy who says CPAC is ran by The Muslim Brotherhood
