What is so offensive about Dr. Williams’s canard is his implication that something is wrong with Muslim refugees (and Muslims in general). To Dr. Williams, we are at war with Muslims, and anything we do to help a Muslim only hurts “us.” He conveniently disregards our Muslim allies in the war on terror, or our own Muslim soldiers who risk their lives defending our country. But hatred and bigotry rarely concerns itself with truth, and to Dr. Williams, the vulnerable Muslim refugees coming to our country are an invading army. Better we should let them die in refugee camps. And why not leave the non-Muslim refugees to die as well, for there might be Muslims among them. To Dr. Williams, we live in an “us” vs. “them” world, where helping refugees–an act of compassion and humanity–is viewed as an act of treason.
Unfortunately, Dr. William’s lie has made its way around the internet as truth, and has been re-posted on many blogs. People who hate Muslims and who hate President Obama seem ready to believe anything that fits their paradigm, regardless of the facts. It’s a shame that refugees–some of the most vulnerable people on earth–are exploited by hate mongers like Dr. Williams, Ph.D. You’d think an educated person would know better.
