Avoid putting individuals into bins. Avoid labels. Allow individuals to be by themselves. There is no thing that is such "the Muslim community". You will find Muslim "communities", that are as linguistically, ethnically, culturally and religiously diverse in practice and traditions as some other team.

When feeling under siege through the barrage that is constant of and overrun by the seeming lack of any possibility of genuine change in culture, resist the temptation to "circle the wagons". It is possible to be home more, among your own, and bewail your fate, "they’re all against us"; but it is hard and takes courage to help keep on calling other people, building bridges not walls, promoting relations, employed by the most popular good and building one society, but that's precisely what our religions challenge us to complete, over and over repeatedly, so long as it will take.
ISLAMOPHOBIA is the fear, hatred and prejudice against Islam and Muslims, particularly into the West. It really is predicated on stereotyping all Muslims as extremists, lunatics and/or terrorists and it is most likely the best hazard confronting
the Muslim world today.
On a level that is global there might be some localised incidents
according to fears or prejudices against other religions, but nothing much like the scale of Islamophobia. Why?
Islamophobia became more widespread after the co-ordinated attacks in the US 16 years ago, on Sept 11, 2001 by the terror group called Al-Qaeda, which had its origins in Afghanistan when it was under armed forces career by the then Soviet Union (1978-1989). The CIA ended up being responsible for producing Al-Qaeda at that time to serve US interests against the Soviets.
"Sept 11" can be viewed a game title changer in world history whenever most country that is powerful the world ended up being seemingly brought to its knees by 19 self-professed "Muslim jihadists", using four hijacked passenger planes. Nearly 3,000 people were killed and 6,000 people hurt. The World that is iconic Trade was damaged and also the Pentagon (Department of Defence) partly damaged.

First, draw a difference between legitimately speech that is permissible rhetoric which will be socially responsible.
While we reject bigotry, I value freedom of speech. Indeed, only through the doctrine of countertop message - answering "bad speech" with "good speech" - will we produce taboos around Islamophobic discourse similar to the ones that occur for any other minority teams.
Day significantly, voters countered Walsh’s "bad speech" on Election.
2nd, vitriolic governmental rhetoric has adverse effects, including quantifiable harmful outcomes for law-abiding American Muslims within the world’s leading democracy.
More than a decade after 9/11, American Muslims continue steadily to suffer employment discrimination, bias-based bullying and hate crimes.
In accordance with 2013 research from Carnegie Mellon, as an example, those who find themselves conspicuously Muslim on Facebook and LinkedIn are less inclined to get an interview than Christian counterparts with identical qualifications. Likewise, University of Hawaii researchers unearthed that that observing hijab compromises one’s work prospects.
Muslim youth have problems with bias-based bullying in schools. A 2013 CAIR study unearthed that one half of Ca Muslim students have now been bullied, while Rider University research concludes that pupils with a strong identity that is muslim more prone to are lied about and threatened by peers.
American Muslims will also be victimized by hate crimes, from physical assaults to mosque arsons. Interestingly, the FBI has attributed violence that is such "Islam-bashing" and "anti-Muslim propagandizing."
