When We Were The Muslims

In 1942 Maria Grazia Antonia Cerulli, along with approximately 695,000 other Italians citizens residing in the United States, was designated an “enemy alien”. As all Italians were seen as violent and Mafiosi, now all Muslims are potential jihadists and hence need to be kept out of the USA. Martin Niemöller’s...
