When Opposing Jihad Is 'Racist'
by Robert Spencer
"Islamophobia" has broken out at Washington University of St. Louis, sparking outrage, grief, an "open solidarity forum," and an avalanche of groveling apologies from university administrators.
It all started, according to the university's independent student paper Student Life, with a "controversial Halloween photograph" that went "viral" and became an "emotional trigger" for Muslim students, "bringing back memories of personal experiences with racism."
The offending photo featured a group of students apparently dressed as soldiers pointing waterguns at a student dressed as Osama bin Laden, or perhaps as a generic Islamic terrorist.
