Green Scare: the making of the new Muslim enemy

Deepa Kumar argues that the US has seen “a new turn in Islamophobia and the politics of fear that has striking parallels with the Red Scare of the Cold War. Like the Red Scare, this new ‘Green Scare’ (green referring here to Islam, as opposed to environmental activists) also attempts to promote fear and suspicion of our friends, neighbors and co-workers.”
