It's hip to be anti-Muslim

Those aren't my views, but according to a report today by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, they belong to an increasing number of Americans. The "Presumption of Guilt" study reported that anti-Muslim incidents increased 25 percent last year, with California accounting for 29 percent of cases. Click to read the entire report.

This is not a new phenomenon. Muslims feel more discriminated against now than in the months following 9/11. I've written many times about this growing concern of Islamophobia.

In related news, Investor's Business Daily published an editorial Tuesday indicting CAIR as a foreign front group -- as others have claimed, or worse.

The days of legitimizing and mainstreaming CAIR — now an official unindicted co-conspirator in a major terror case — must end before it can lobby against one more antiterror measure, boycott one more airline for protecting passengers from suspicious Muslim men, or sue one more John Doe tipster who could save hundreds of lives.
