Muslims are victimised now more then ever

Reader comment on item: Are Muslim Americans Victimized?

A mid-1980's survey suggests that they are. According to its summary statement: No Muslim interviewed reported that he or she had ever experienced any personal harassment in the workplace or knew of any experienced by a friend or associate as a result of being either Muslim or foreign-born. Nor did any of those interviewed report any problems in buying or renting homes or apartments because of perceived prejudice.

Daniel, let us read this piece by piece. The above is very clear. The years of peace in 0f 80s cannot compared the years later on when the economy takes the battering and the 9/11 came in the forefront. Further, if the president says this, he has some grounds covered and he does not need any support of any one to for election. True the Muslims were targeted in 80 but now things have changed. All Muslims not just in USA but the world over have difficult times in travelling and pass the immigrations.

I thank you

Daniel Pipes replies:

The same groups whining in the 1990s are whining today; and I see a mix of circumstances today not dissimilar to a decade ago. Sorry, for reasons I established at length in my 2000 article, "Are Muslim Americans Victimized?" I cannot take this argument seriously.
