A few bad apples.....
Come on people, we're better than this. According to an article over at Salon.com, protesters of the proposed ground-zero mosque spotted, then surrounded, two Egyptian men who were speaking Arabic, in the assumption that they were Muslims who supported the mosque. They were shouted at and told to go home. Eventually the police had to take them away for their own protection. Turns out however, they were Christians who had flown from California to protest the mosque themselves.
I realize this is an isolated incident but the liberal media will use it over and over as evidence of the race-based hatred conservatives have for Arabs. It gives them ammunition with which to harm the real cause which is to keep radical Islam out of the US in general and stop the erection of a mosque within spitting distance of ground zero specifically. We have to show that we are an open and welcoming society or the left will kill us with our bigotry.
