Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Wajahat Ali (New York Times)

On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with Wajahat about Islamophobia in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. What does it mean when press accounts describe Tamerlan Tsarnaev as an increasingly “devout” Muslim? Wajahat explains the vast gulf between the perception and the reality of American Muslims. Why are some terrorists described as “lone wolves” but, without organizational links to an international terror organization, the Tsarnaev brothers are described as “self-radicalized” terrorists? Wajahat explains the Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck dynamic to Americans’ reaction to terrorism. Plus: Why aren’t we talking about the Tsarnaevs and gun control? UPDATE: Reaction to the AP’s reporting on Tamerlan’s radicalization and the mysterious “Misha.”
