THE TIDE OF Islamophobia is rising and it seems like nothing short of a miracle will stop it. Mosques around the world are being burned down. Muslims are being attacked on the streets. Islamophobes are slandering the Prophet with impunity, fomenting fear and hatred of Muslims and Islam with little reproach. But we, as the targeted community of all this hate, fear and misinformation, must understand that it is all a trap.
We must understand that when Islamophobes organize armed protests of Islam outside of mosques around the world, it is their intention to get a reaction out of the Muslims. And they are hoping for a bad reaction.
