Anti-Muslim Bigotry

By David T. This is Harry’s Place at its best.

Brett encapsulates it in the comments:
The bigots’ talking about “The Muslims”, the Government’s impulse to seek out “Community Leaders” and the Islamists vision of “The Ummah” are all part of the same undermining of the average Muslim person’s autonomy, and a failure to understand the complexities of identity - where religious belief or affiliation may not even be a person’s dominant identity. In this sense, bigots, misguided government figures and the Islamists all collude in robbing Muslim people of their individuality, personality and, for that matter, citizenship.
Many more good responses there.
