The muslim world sends love to Boston

Just wanted to share these two moving images – the first, from two women in Kabul:

To Boston from Kabul with Love

and the second, two boys in Iraq:

Next time you hear or read the Islamophobes’ claim that muslims “dance in the streets” when there is tragedy in America, remember these images.

Sources: Afghans send sympathy and love to Boston, whose pain they know all too well, in the Washington Post, and Empathy for Boston, from Iraqi children in Salon)
