Rachel Maddow says the master narrative has been that America is at war with Islam. Has that been the "master" narrative? Really? Was that the master narrative during the Bush era? Didn't Bush say we are not at war with Islam?
I know there are Americans who misunderstand Islam and hate Islam, but the US government is not at war with Islam and that is obvious. Otherwise the US would have invaded Saudi Arabia, the perpetuators of Wahhabism! And currently, the US is in bed with Saudi Arabia.
