"The intolerant religious right in USA is not globally newsworthy."

Wrong.

They are under close scrutiny, as is America, to see just how deep their influence is in American politics.

This is all in the context of the non-ground zero non-mosque.

The fact that its Moslems is irrelevant.

A specific demographic in the USA is being turned into a scapegoat for Americas woes.

The queston is, will America take the sane line and refuse to allow that kind of politics to dictate policy, or will it pander to Islamophobes.


Keith.

Islamophobia is a big issue in the UK and in the USA.

In our media, Moslems are pigeonholed, homogenized and singled out in a way that no other demographic is.


Once again, you purport to be neutral yet align yourself with the political right.

In that consistent point, You are completely dishonest.


A man wants to burn the Koran and your response is to criticize Moslems.

Get a life!
