    a group by demonizing them is a sure way to push them to radical extremes.  This post and the links helps to demonize Muslims in Europe and will add to any problems there are.  I have traveled twice this year in England , Italy and Croatia.  Didn't notice any difference from previous years.  In fact, I had a nice, long chat on a train to York, with a young lady from Iran who now lives in Scotland.  She is attending college and was quite ambitious as to her future and her life.  Lovely girl, and not scary at all. Hmmmm.  We talked of women in Islam, GWB's plans for Iran and all sorts of things.  Enlightening and enjoyable. No threat as far as I could see.  Of course this is anticdotal and far from hard data, but no one spoke to us of any scary Muslim stuff.  This seems to be racist and just the same old same old.  Scary brown people want to take over!  Preserve our ways, no changing!  Boogiemen, Boogiemen!
