He went on to compare those blaming Muslims for the Paris attacks to blaming “all Americans for the past actions of the Ku Klux Klan.”

He added: “These positions fuel a collective paranoia that tends to be more interested in confirming existing biases rather than the truth.”

Sir Richard reserved some praise for the 18 mayors who assured the public that they will allow refugees settlement. He had previously spoken of his sadness of the “anti refugee and anti-immigrant rhetoric” which was taking place during the refugee crisis.

He certainly speaks a lot of sense, it’s all about uniting together during these testing times…
