Publisher Comments:

In response to the events of 9/11, the Bush administration launched a "war on terror" ushering in an era of anti-Muslim racism, or Islamophobia. However, 9/11 alone did not create Islamophobia. This book examines the historic relationship between Islamophobia and the agenda of empire-building.

Deepa Kumar is an associate professor of media studies and Middle East studies at Rutgers University and the author of Outside the Box: Corporate Media, Globalization and the UPS Strike. Kumar has contributed to numerous outlets including the BBC, USA Today, and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Synopsis:

Islamophobia examines the origins of the ongoing assault on Muslims and Arabs in the U.S., and the "war on terror"

logically anyone born a muslim will more than likely believe in that fairy tale. i was born in a christian family but have realized that there is no "true" religion, we're all humans and the only rule is to treat everyone else like you want to be treated. having visited moslem countries and reading some of the news coming from them i think they exhibit extremely anti-social behavior and probably have a deep inferiority complex. historically, the muslim fairy tale appears to want to destroy any other religion that believes differently from them. what's that old saying, "you hate what you don't understand". they have no concept of tolerance now, nor in the past six hundred or so years. it's atrocious the way they treat their own women!! i wish there was an answer to their aggressive behavior and the intolerance they exhibit chiefly in saudia arabia. i'm saddened that a woman could even think about defending this fairy tale. poor woman, this one.
