Media 'contributing to rise of Islamophobia'


..."But some police officers and sections of the media are demonising Muslims, treating them as if they're all terrorists — and that encourages other people to do the same.

"If that demonisation continues, then Britain will have to deal with two million Muslim terrorists — 700,000 of them in London," he said. "If you attack a whole community, it becomes despondent and aggressive."...

As a card carrying lifelong citizen of the "Great Satan", who has been demonized as such for 25+ years now, I find it curious that I feel no particular motivation to become a terrorist.

Can someone please explain this to me? Did I miss something? Should I be out shopping for a bomb vest and Semtex?
