I have to wonder if American religious extremists had flown 4 passenger jet planes into a building in an Arab nation with Arab Muslim civilians in each plane killing over 3,000 Muslim citizens or more, I wonder if Muslims society today would have a good reason to have some of that same xenophobia they mock non-Muslims about?

What about it, Mohammed Shafiq? How would you feel if the tables had turned the other direction andthis tragedy involved your people? Might you have a little xenophobia yourself? I can just imagine.
