What anti-Muslim hate?

In the Muslim community

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer dodged a question Tuesday about the rise in American anti-Muslim hate groups, many of which have close ties to high-level officials in the Trump administration, and instead opted to talk about terrorism committed by Muslims. 

Police are investigating threats made on social media to Muslim American activist Linda Sarsour. The prominent activist and Women's March organizer reported the threat to police after a man named Glenn Maccioli wrote on Facebook: "This b***h is in Brooklyn. Anyone know where? I would like to spit in her face."

Actor Mahershala Ali is bringing diversity to this year's Academy Awards in two vital ways: He's a black actor at an awards show that's #sowhite, and he's Muslim, part of a religion that is often vilified in Hollywood. "If you convert to Islam after a couple of decades of being a black man in the U.S., the discrimination you receive as a Muslim doesn't feel like a shock," he said.


Acts of Hate

Prosecutors charged a 51-year-old man with murder for a shooting at a Kansas bar that left an Indian engineer dead and injured two other men. Witnesses said the shooter thought his victims were Middle Eastern, and yelled "get out of my country."

Acts of Love


After hearing that nearly 200 graves were found damaged at Missouri's Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery, Muslim activists created an online fundraiser, calling on Muslims to show solidarity with Jews. The initiative raised over $120,000 to repair the graves.

"Every once in a while a story finds its way to me that puts everything in perspective," Ellen DeGeneres said this week on her show, honoring Sudanese Muslim refugee Ekhlas Ahmed by paying off her school debt. Ahmed, a high school teacher, credits Ellen with helping her learn English.
