Islamophobia and Foreign Policy

Hosted by

Mitt Romney and other Republicans are being criticized for fostering hostility toward Muslims. Governor Romney is said to have “insulted” Palestinians. President Obama is said to be doing the same thing more subtly, with 17% of Americans believing he’s Muslim himself. Is the political culture encouraging an atmosphere of hostility? Is it a function of the foreign policy agenda of both political parties?
