Iranian Islamophobia?

Twelve people were killed and dozens injured in a bombing at an annual military parade in Iran’s West Azerbaijan province. The Iranian Foreign Ministry blamed the attack on foreign “elements.”

At least 80 people were hurt in the blast early today, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported. Some were in critical condition, a nurse said by telephone from the emergency room at Imam Khomeini Hospital in the city of Mahabad, about 550 kilometers (340 miles) west of Tehran. She declined to give her name.

. . . The region has been the scene of anti-government attacks by the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan, or PJAK, which says it wants autonomy for Iran’s Kurdish areas.

Notwithstanding all the blather about American Islamophobia in the American mainstream media, Muslim Americans are safer, healthier, and more prosperous than Muslims anywhere else on earth. No one bombs Muslim gatherings in America.
