I was brought up with the attitude that the best way to fight prejudice is to become better informed.
This article seems to be saying the opposite – that the more I follow the news (which cannot even acknowledge extremist terrorism or that huge numbers of uncontrolled immigrants are perhaps not a good idea) the more prejudiced I am likely to become.
I would like to ask the folks down at the local mosque just what their attitudes towards the Takfiris are – and are they as tolerant of Shiites as they want us to be.
Perhaps someone needs to go underground (as in the video below) to ascertain just what their real attitudes are?
