Top Ten Ways Islamic Law Forbids Terrorism

This Just In: Islamophobia

The evil side of America is on display in the form of a media-fueled Islamophobia that recalls some of the worst bigotry in the nation’s past. This is not what we hoped for in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, or the election of President Barack Obama in 2008.
