The ‘interview’ in the video speaks for itself.

While it is appalling to find the land of the free practicing such extreme intolerance, we cannot simply write this off as Americans being inherently prejudiced as well. It is clear the Quran burning episode above is merely a symptom and not a root cause. Is this due to September 11? Is it due to increasing Muslim presence in Western countries? Is it simply the difference in culture and belief?

What do you think are some of the causes that have led to the rising Islamophobia in the US?
Are there any similar ‘phobias’ you can think of in Singapore?
Are we all just ‘racist’ who are in hiding, ready to surface when a tension point erupts?
