My daughter was only four years old when she heard from a foreign man on her way home from the store that she was getting married to Al Qaeda. After all the similar stories I've heard from Muslim friends and acquaintances in recent years, I wasn't even shocked. Just sad.
Comment fields and social media are flooded with racist and hate speech, especially in the wake of the refugee crisis and the terrorist attacks in Paris. The hatred also gets violent outbursts on the streets. A young man with a Somali background was called a "Muslim bastard" and stabbed in Bærum a few days later. . .
