Readers React: Republican candidates stoke the anti-Muslim fires
To the editor: Do any of the Republican candidates who were on the debate stage Tuesday night realize that their rhetoric about Muslims is only providing Islamic State with an excellent recruiting tool? (“Republicans’ sharp-elbowed presidential debate isn’t likely to shake many voters,” Dec. 16)
Young American Muslims are surely put off by these candidates’ comments; a small amount might even be moved to join a group like Islamic State in response to this hostility.
We have our own homegrown brand of terrorists right here in the good old USA, and the comments made by the candidates Tuesday night only fuel their hateful fires.
