Newsweep, of course, doesn’t shy away from any stupidity and Â even provides a forum for Islamo-agit-prop Fareed Zakaria, who recently told us we should just relax and “learn to live with Islamic terrorism…”

For Muslims, backlash fear builds each 9/11
Many in U.S. of Islamic faith still struggle through anniversary of attacks
Associated (with terrorists) Press:
NEW YORK – There is the dread of leaving the house that morning. People might stare, or worse, yell insults.
