Book covers promote Orientalism.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the last few years have seen a deluge of such covers premiering in the U.S. (and other Euro/Western countries) at a time when France is blatantly becoming an anti-Islamic state bent on depriving French Muslims of as many rights as possible and when France's allies (like the US, UK, etc) have shit all to say about such obvious wrongness.

I just wanted to post this for all those who feel the need to ask why it matters what the cover looks like.
