America's War on Islam 2.0
by Stephen Lendman
America's war on Islam continues.
Waging war at home or abroad requires enemies. America creates them when none exist. Imperial strategy demands them.
Post-9/11, Muslims were targeted for political advantage. Post-Boston bombings, America's war on Islam continues.
Muslims are "war on terror" scapegoats. Washington's Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia wars rage.
It's the wrong time to be Muslims in America. They're persecuted for their faith and ethnicity. At times it's for their activism, prominence, and/or charity.
They're dehumanized, spied on, set up as patsies, hunted down, rounded up, held in detention, kept in isolation, denied bail, restricted in their right to counsel, tried on secret evidence, convicted on bogus charges, given long sentences, and treated harshly as political prisoners.
