The Eternal Question

O.K., perhaps "The Eternal Question" is a bit of an overstatement, but this one has been bugging me for a while. Pretty much since I sat in my lower Manhattan apartment shortly after 9/11 and saw news reports of people murdering Sikhs in Arizona, in fact. And the question is this:

Why are red states in which Arab and Muslim terrorists have never shown an interest so much more afraid of all Arab and Muslim people than those of us who live(d) in target zones?

Today's stomach-churning episode courtesy of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Interestingly enough, the Coalition for a Secure Driver's License has chucked its billboards down the Memory Hole. But the magic of Google caching can show you what you missed (unless you live in New Mexico or North Carolina, in which case you'll see them in living color soon enough).

By the way, if you're wondering what the Arabic script on the billboard means: it means nothing. It's just random characters. Maybe the answer to my eternal question might have something to do with ignorance borne of unfamiliarity. Ya think?
