These two cases are, of course, a small part of the whole, which is a massive ongoing vilification campaign against Muslims. As you can see if you examine these two specific cases, it is not that they are taking real events and simply exaggerating them. No, there are just people sitting around making up shit.
None of this is even a “conspiracy theory”. There is a whole network of foundations or think-tanks or whatever you want to call them whose entire activity, raison d’être, is fomenting Islamophobia. For example the Gatestone Institute or the Clarion Project. If you look at the funding and the running of these sorts of things, and their connections, you see that these are Zionist operations. Those two are just a couple examples. There is a whole interlaced network of these things and it’s entirely a neocon/zionist sort of thing.
