In uncertain times, people often turn to the certainty of pointing to scapegoats. It happened in Germany, when their economy was in a shambles and Hitler rose to exploit the situation, and we must be on guard it does not happen here. I am not belittling the tragedy of 9/11; indeed, that was a terrible crime against humanity. But to declare war on the religion of 1.7 billion people because of it? Isn’t that what Bin Laden really wanted?
