He points out that we are Americans, we are free, and the brave people, and must jettison our apprehensions about each other to live freely. September 11 is, throughout this chapter, undoubtedly argued to be one of the most defining moments for Muslim Americans. Today, with a few hundred bucks on his ATM card, the fellow from the badlands can be in the heart of the metropolis within hours. But byPew Research Center estimates, there will be at least 8 million Muslims living in the U.

      It is akin to planting a seed and nurturing to give the beneficence to the next generation. When you are free from apprehensions, and connect with fellow workers, the workplace becomes a joy to be. In fact, many of the young Muslims I spoke with seem to be exploring their faith in distinctively American ways. Some point to the rhetoric of President Donald Trump as a more recent reason for the dearth of interest in Islam in America.

      The rise in animosity was stoked by fiery anti-Muslim rhetoric from conservative commentators and politicians, including the president. It is one of the bold books written about Muslims, and it highlights the sources of extremism and how to cure it.

But byPew Research Center estimates, there will be at least 8 million Muslims living in the U. Instead, Europe will collapse from " wimpiness " or "multicultural 'sensitivity,'" leading to betrayal of the state's core values.
