I live and interact with regular middle class Americans. I don't EVER recall them harboring views of intolerance such as these.

Sure, there are islamophobes and racists in the US (and they are slightly more vocal now, post tea-party crap). But to imply that the lay American is rampantly Islamophobic and anti-semitic is simply foolish.

Mufi bhai, from my experience I have met only a handful of Bengalis (or Muslims for that matter) who do not seriously entertain a fuc*ed-up world-view.
