I completely agree: this kind of phobia of things touched by Jews and Christians and other non-Muslim, is a repulsive racism that is = or > than the Islamaphobia that some westerners have. Next thing you know muslims will be burning the bible and torah. (or as the Salafis are doing in Eygpty now, destroying the shrines of Holy Men)
Although i doubt any European Christians or Jews will slaughter Afghani aid workers in London when that happens.
Unfortunately, there are alot of discriminate laws in Islam, and many really don't have any textual evidence to back them up, you'll see ambiguous references used.

It's not a phobia, it's fiqh.
Fiqh rulings contradict each other all the time. But admittedly, in this case, marjas are practically unanimous. But there is no logic behind this ruling.

Why do you believe that food made by hindus becomes najis? Can you provide any verses of quran or hadiths as proof?
Don't hold your breath. Marjas hardly ever provide textual references to show how a ruling was derived.
