Xenophobia at its ugliestMarch 4, 2011
These videos are profoundly troubling.
The first captures a Feb. 13, 2011, protest in Orange County that took place outside an Islamic charity event, the theme of which was “Our Responsibility towards Our Neighbors: An Islamic Perspective.” The charity is an Islamic relief organization whose projects include local disaster relief, women’s housing, hunger prevention, family counseling, medical aid, emergency financial support and funeral and burial assistance. Their website can be found here.
The next two videos are from a protest yesterday outside the White House. According to Ryan Reilly, who took the videos, the protesters were there to counter-protest a planned pro-Sharia law rally. When the pro-Sharia demonstrators failed to show, the anti-Sharia protesters turned on a single Muslim man who had shown up to pray at the White House.
These scenes are reminiscent of some really ugly periods in American and European history. Those who are stoking anti-Muslim sentiment need to tone down the rhetoric. This is awful.
