Chattanooga Shooting Fuels Anti-Muslim Reaction

Amitabh Pal

Never mind the fact that Mohammod Abdulazeez, the Chattanooga shooter, was gravely mentally troubled and abused alcohol and drugs. Also never mind that, by some estimates, rightwing extremists have killed five times as many people in the United States since 9/11 as have fundamentalist Muslims.

The Reverend Franklin Graham (son of preacher Billy) actually proposed that the United States institute an immediate ban on Muslim immigrants.
