Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, Japanese-Americans were interred during WWII. And they were not trusted. Does that mean we should not trust Muslim Americans, or that we should blame them for 9/11?

I don't think so. Yet, there is that implication from a minority of Americans, mostly right wing GOP types, that all Muslims are extremists and interested in jihad against America. A mosque near Ground Zero is an insult to the victims of 9/11, even though Muslims and Muslim Americans were among the dead.

Ignorance and bigotry should not triumph in this controversy.
