Center for American Progress: Challenging Islamophobia

Wajahat Ali

One of the most serious threats to American security comes from anti-Muslim hate speech within our borders that portrays America as at war with Islam. Such hate speech is on the rise and puts at risk American troops overseas, as well as our security at home. Anti-Muslim hate speech also ignores the truth. In reality, Muslim Americans are an integral part of American society, and their contributions are key to our nation’s well-being.

What forces are behind the spike in anti-Muslim hate speech and what is their goal? What are civic and faith communities doing to combat this dangerous trend? What are the global consequences of Islamophobia? How do we change the narrative?
