"Are Moslems the new Jews, i.e. scapegoats for all occasions, to be bullied and intimidated and ultimately typecast as enemies of the state?"

"The nations of the world run on oil." Once the war in the Near East goes away, so will much of the vilification of Arabs and Muslims in general. Consider the panic which accompanied the rise of the Black Muslims in the United States. Now, except for a few crazy ministers, you rarely hear of them. Jews, as a small minority with few resources except our own brains and a long tradition of being "not like us," are always suspect, whether or not it is politically correct.
