Questions and Hate

In my line of work, almost everyone I meet has some interest in learning about other cultures in general and Islam in particular. Because of this, I often underestimate the breadth of anti-Islamic attitudes in the general population. However, consider this question asked of Jill Carroll:
"Because of your well-known support of everything Muslim, many of your fellow Americans, including myself, believe your capture was not real, but was in fact conducted and staged with your cooperation, and, that you are a traitor to your country as well as to your family and friends. What is your response to those allegations?"

Note that the reasoning here isn't based on opinions about the Iraq war or even political orientation in general, but merely an interest in promoting knowledge of the religion of Islam and the people who practice it.
