Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. It’s also the most feared. A tiny fraction of Muslims have declared themselves Jihadists, and according to far too many Americans and Europeans, that means that all Muslims are a suicide vest away from killing us all.
That attitude — which is mostly expressed by Republicans, but also shared by a handful of liberals, like Bill Maher — is particularly dangerous. It leads to hate crimes, mostly against perfectly innocent people. The fact is, American non-Muslims have been far more dangerous to American Muslims since 9/11 than the other way around.
Still, Islamophobes aren’t going to listen. This video, though, starring two very attractive Millennials, shines a whole new light on Islam and helps dispel the myths. Let’s make this go viral. It could be good for the world.
