Question and answer
How has post-9/11 anti-Muslim and anti-Arab backlash and discrimination affected local and global communities?
Over at Commentary, [ Jonathan Tobin complains that "most of the mainstream media still takes it as a given that there is an ongoing and brutal post-9/11 backlash against Muslims in America that fuels discrimination against followers of Islam." I don't know that I've ever seen the backlash characterized as "brutal" in the mainstream media, or that anyone has bothered to actually quantify media
coverage on the subject. It would be helpful to have links to the specific coverage Tobin is complaining about. But I am among those who thinks that Muslims face both informal prejudice and are discriminated against by the state, while Tobin says "there is virtually no evidence for this assertion and much empirical data to argue for the opposite conclusion."He goes on to cite census data showing that the number of Muslims in America is growing, up 1.6 million in the 10-year period that ended in 2010. "Is it possible or even likely that Islam would be thriving in the United States if it were not a society that is welcoming Muslims with open arms and providing a safe environment for people to openly practice this faith?" he asks. "The answer is an obvious no." Before concluding he offers three additional arguments to consider ]
