Muslims portrayed as terrorists while white right-wingers get a pass

Muslims in the US have been increasingly facing public anger and politicians' scapegoating after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. Even before the deadly attacks, though, a double standard was present in the media and law enforcement, calling Muslims ‘terrorists’ while avoiding the term when dealing with white or right-wing perpetrators.

How Republicans Became The Party Of Islamophobia

After GOP whipped up an anti-Muslim frenzy, 2/3 of Republican primary voters support Trump's plan to ban Muslims, but it wasn't always this way.

The truth about Muslims in America

This report includes facts and figures from various surveys and studies, all of which are hyperlinked in the body of the story.

Donald Trump sparked a firestorm of criticism from liberals, conservatives and those in between when he called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States.

But while such a ban is unlikely to be implemented in a country with freedom of religion, the cheers that followed his announcement at a South Carolina rally are telling.

"I think that we should definitely disallow any Muslims from coming in. Any of them," supporter Charlie Marzka, 75, told CNN. "The reason is simple: We can't identify what their attitude is."

Indeed, the truth about Muslims in America is perhaps surprising -- but not in the way Trump and his supporters might think.

A look at polls and studies conducted in the last few years shows that Muslims have been crucial in helping law enforcement find terror suspects in the United States. Many have served in the military protecting the country against terrorists. And in many ways, they're a lot like other everyday Americans.

Here's the reality of Muslims in America -- and how it smashes stereotypes:

They are a minuscule portion of the U.S. population
It's difficult to come by hard numbers because the U.S. Census doesn't collect religious data. But the fear of Muslims taking over and imposing Sharia law is unfounded. By some estimates, Muslims make up less than 1% of the U.S. adult population. By 2050, their numbers will grow -- to 2.1%. Of all the Muslims in America, 63% are exactly the kind Trump wants banned -- immigrants.

They're better educated than most Americans
U.S. Muslims have the second-highest level of education among major religious groups in the country; Jews have the highest. And a greater proportion of them have college degrees than the general U.S. population.

They have more gender equality
While in many parts of the Muslim world, women are confined to second-class status, that's not the case among American Muslims. Virtually all of them, 90%, agree that women should be able to work outside the home. American Muslim women hold more college or postgraduate degrees than Muslim men. And they are more likely to work in professional fields than women from most other U.S. religious groups.

They've been here since the birth of the nation ...
Scholars estimate about a quarter to a third of the Africans brought to the United States as slaves were Muslims. Most were then forced to convert to Christianity.

... and they're not just clustered in big cities
American Muslims live in cities big and small all across the United States. The first mosque built in America was in, of all places, Ross, North Dakota, back in 1929.

They're as religious as Christians ...
The general perception of Muslims has one thing right: Most Muslims are very religious. About half say they attend the weekly Friday prayers. But that makes them similar to Christians: About 70% of Christians say religion is important in their lives, and about 45% go to a weekly service.

... but they're not as dogmatic as they are portrayed
Much has been made about fundamentalist Muslims and their strict interpretation of the Quran. But most American Muslims are different. A Pew religious landscape survey found that 57% of American Muslims say there is more than one way to interpret Islam's teachings. A similar number say many different religions can lead to eternal life.

There have been Muslims involved in terrorism ...
From September 11, 2001, until the end of 2014, 109 Muslim-Americans plotted against targets in the United States. And terrorism by Muslim-Americans killed 50 in the same time period. Contrast that with the deaths from other mass shootings just last year: 136 -- more than twice as many as all the deaths from 13 years of Muslim-American terrorism.

... but they've also spoken out against it
After every terrorist attack at home and abroad, the refrain rises, "Where is the Muslim condemnation?" American Muslims have spoken out -- and done much more. A Duke University study found more terrorism suspects and perpetrators were brought to the attention of law enforcement by members of the Muslim-American community than were discovered through U.S. government investigations. And a Pew survey found that roughly half of U.S. Muslims say their religious leaders aren't speaking out enough against Islamic extremism.

How Societal Demonization Of Muslims Helps ISIS
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQR7SE6MiRM

===

Adult language warning:

Poll: Muslims Actually HATE ISIS

“This chart below is from a Pew survey of global attitudes conducted earlier this year. It shows that vast majorities of people polled in 11 majority-Muslim countries oppose the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS and ISIL.

Vast majorities said they had an overwhelmingly "unfavorable" view of the group, which is responsible for myriad atrocities within the lands it controls in Iraq and Syria, as well as attacks overseas. The countries where there were conspicuous numbers in favor were mostly places far removed from the Islamic State's ravages and embroiled in their own polarizing struggles over extremism and militancy.

The negative sentiment was shared by Muslims and non-Muslims alike, with Lebanon's various sectarian camps, for example, strongly united in their opposition to the Islamic State.”

Why Is This Christian Librarian Wearing A Hijab?

"The nationwide conversation on whether or not to accept Syrian refugees is still being debated. A Conway woman is taking the debate a step forward.

Nancy Allen educates people daily at the Faulkner County Library. Allen's new lesson is a bit different.

"My goal is support American Muslim women who may be facing fear and discourtesy, discrimination, and support of religious freedom of expression," Allen said. "I'm not usually a big statement-maker, but I was moved in a negative way by the xenophobic comments that are coming down the pike.””

Trump Supporter Arrested After Plotting To Murder Muslims

"Police in Richmond, California have arrested 55-year-old William Celli, who was allegedly constructing explosive devices he intended to use against the Muslims in his community.

Authorities obtained a search warrant for the man’s home after an anonymous caller tipped them off about Celli’s activities. After evacuating the entire neighborhood, police detonated what appeared to be a homemade bomb, telling reporters they were not sure if it was an inert or active device. ThinkProgress confirmed that Celli, who is married and owns his own plumbing company, has been held in the Contra Costa County Jail since Sunday afternoon."

I'm curious where the check box is on the arrest form for what political candidate you support?

meanwhile the Islamic Terrorist are succeeding to make their religion look bad...

After all the peace loving Muslims don't want Women's Crisis centers around - they like to keep their women under strict control...

(CNN)An American who died in a terror attack in Burkina Faso moved halfway across the world with his wife to run an orphanage and women's crisis center.

Michael James Riddering was one of 28 people killed after terrorists opened fire Friday night at a cafe in the capital, Ouagadougou.

The al Qaeda-linked militants then raided a luxury hotel across the street, shooting some and taking others hostage in an overnight siege that lasted hours.

Anti-Muslim Stalker Pleads Fox News

A man threatening to kill people on the Council of American-Islamic Relations is not unique in America these years, but one man’s excuse for it just might be. John David Weissinger’s lawyer told the judge that his client had basically overdosed on a week-long Fox News bender that made him lose his mind.


"The lawyer for a California man sentenced to one year in jail for making threats towards the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Tuesday that his client was provoked by alcohol and a week of binge-watching Fox News, local TV station KFMB reported.

La Mesa resident John David Weissinger pled guilty last year to making email and telephone threats to CAIR's San Diego and Washington, D.C. offices. His lawyer, Michael Malowney, attributed his behavior to alcohol abuse and to having spent a week watching Fox News coverage of the 2015 terrorist attacks at the Paris headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which left 11 dead.

"He barks when he's drunk," Malowney told a judge during the Tuesday sentencing hearing, as quoted by KFMB. "He was reeling from depression and anxiety.””

Islamophobia Poster Boy: US vet detained again

Saadiq Long was stopped from flying to the United States from Qatar in 2012. He is a US Air Force veteran, originally from Oklahoma, living in Qatar, who wanted to visit his ailing mother. He became the 'poster boy' for Islamophobia back then. Now, he is once again being subjected to the no-fly list - this time being held in Turkey. The Resident discusses how the media and the government conspire to ensure Islamophobia stays alive and well.
