In U.S. military policy, Islamophobia allows the United States to carry out drone strikes against Muslim men perceived to be terrorists in several countries around the world with impunity. Many victims of these “kill lists” are not terrorists, but innocent people. Dehumanization and guilt by association enable the United States to kill innocent people in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. Dehumanization and guilt by association enable a killer to gun down worshipers in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. As we mourn the latest killing, we need to denounce this dehumanization and guilt by association. They are the handmaidens of the murderer.
