Professor Green shares thoughts on causes of Islamophobia

Todd Green, Luther associate professor of religion, recently gave an interview with the MEHR news agency on the causes of Islamophobia. The author of "Fear of Islam" said he believes Orientialism laid the foundation for Islamophobia today. "Moreover, Islamophobia is very much driven by political ambitions and political power, and this connects it with previous manifestations of Orientalism," Green said in the interview.
