I have always been afraid of Muslims.
That's because you're a cowardly xenophobe, deathly afraid of anyone who might look or talk different from you. You are probably also one of those people who think that Jesus was white, english speaking, european-american, and republican.
You aren't afraid of muslims, you are afraid of brown people. You are afraid of middle eastern, north african, and central asian people. You can't identify a muslim based on sight alone, not all people from from that area are muslims, nor are all muslims caftan or turban wearing arabs or persians, in fact there are likely many of them that are middle class white european-americans just like you, there are millions of muslims that are of black african or southeast asian descent that look nothing like you stereotype image of muslims. There are also many, many people of middle eastern descenct that you would assume to be muslim that are in fact christians, as there are many christian communities that have existed in the middle east for over 1500 years.
I remember the last time I flew (in '89 I think) I was on the plane and 2 men were sitting I think across the aisle talking in a foreign language.
You probly think that the bible was originally written in english and that jesus and the apostles spoke english too.
I was terrified that they were hijackers
Because all people who speak a foreign language and don't look like you are terrorists. If they weren't evil Allah loving terrorists then they would be white and speak english.
and I was almost in tears the whole flight
So how is it that you manage to function out in the world where not everyone looks or talks just like you do?
retrospect I think they may have been speaking French
You can't manage to tell the difference between french and arabic? I guess all people in the world should be required to speak only english when in public so they don't scare people like you or offend your delicate sensabilities.
But it was so scary for me at the time..
That's because you're a cowardly xenophobe, deathly afraid of anyone who might look or talk different from you.
