Negative Perception Of Islam Increasing

Haven't we as a country learned from our past. I guess not. It seems, every generation in this country has to hate some group. Native Americans, Blacks, Irish, Jews... I could go on but you get the point. Now we are an Muslim hating country, at least according to this new poll by Washington Post and ABC.
As the war in Iraq grinds into its fourth year, a growing proportion of Americans are expressing unfavorable views of Islam, and a majority now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll...

One in four Americans admitted to harboring prejudice toward Muslims, the same proportion that expressed some personal bias against Arabs.
