Well punch me in the arm and call me Billy.
I was making a casual check on the level of unique visitors I've had of late and my jaw hit the flaw when today I discovered some 304 people has been coming to see me. I usually get around 50 unique readers a day.
Any guesses why?
Such attention is welcome if it helps put the current events into better perspective but I'm still seeing too much knee jerk bigotry in the blog world, too many lazy ideas that Islam=Terror and that they should get over it and that Christians, Sikhs, Hindu and Jews never behave in such a way.
Which is such a fucking lie. This is all tied in to terrible racial stereotyping, that is only a hop skip and jump away from the view of Jews as hook nosed hoarders of wealth and power.
It's important that we don't let Muslim people be marginalised and de-humanised as aggressive, retrograde fundamentalists; for this will make their persecution all the easier.
I'll leave you with a letter to the American left.
