  1. If people turned the tables and considered the idea of being a Muslim as the norm while being a Christian was considered radical, they may understand how ridiculous it is to single out this group of people. Yes there are individual Muslims who take a very radical approach to certain things, but are there not also Christians and other religious people that do so as well? It's not just to profile a particular group based on the radicals that stand out the most. That would be like calling all teenagers emotionally unstable wrecks that are on the verge of shooting up any public establishment after seeing that happen in the news. If people realized that the most unusual and rare things are portrayed as usual and common in the media, they would realize that it is unjust to consider every Muslim a threat.
