"Once the war in the Near East goes away, so will much of the vilification of Arabs and Muslims in general"

I put it to you eBarnacle that Arabs and Moslems have been villified as far back as the crusades.

Your seeming idea that scapegoating Jews is different to scapegoating Moslems and that we needn't worry about the scapegoating of moslems seems to suggest that we shouldn't take moslem scapegoating too seriously but that Jews need to be treated with special sensitivity.

I pt it to you that there are no differences in scapegoating any demographic, be it on religious or racial grounds and that you are wrong to draw that distinction.
