The Next Idea
The ISIS attacks in Paris triggered fresh waves of fear and suspicion aimed at Muslims.
In just one example, the FBI is now investigating a Michigan woman regarding a tweet she sent out the day after the Paris attacks:
“Dearborn, MI has the largest Muslim population in the United States. Let’s f--- that place up and send a message to ISIS. We’re coming.”
From a local tweet like that to CNN anchors questioning why no one in the French Muslim community spoke up to warn of the Paris attacks, the shock waves of fear and paranoia can be felt resonating far and wide.
