    There is a toxic level of prejudice against (non-Western) foreign workers and the countries from which these workers come, are also working an safeguarding the interests of their citizens....
    By "Quran-believing Muslim" I mean Muslims that are not nominal (Muslim in name only for traditional reasons), but rather deeply religious and devoted.

    Now, can you please provide an example of a non-nominal Muslim, preferably in a position of influence, who is speaking out against the treatment of religious minorities in Muslim-majority countries, such as Saudi Arabia, that are governed by Islamic principles. Please direct me to a speaker/movement that is fighting for the rights (and lives) of persecuted religious minorities (not just fellow Muslims) but Christian's and other persecuted groups.

    The "West" is also known for its Islamophobia, xenophobia, and rascism----how many deeply devoted WASP Evangelical Christian organizations are protecting Muslims and Mosques?....

    Thanks for the links. It's good to see those pictures. Yes, Siam, you can easily find numerous Christian coalitions working to combat "Islamophobia". Christian's are always encouraged - from the Scriptures - to love EVERYONE and open our hearts to EVERYONE through good deeds and proclamation of the gospel. "Islamophobia" is clearly a deterrent to that endeavor. James White, a very prominent voice amongst evangelical's, has warned against "Islamophobia":





    If you simply google "Christian's against Islamophobia" the results are legion, for example:
