Undoubtedly, a sense of unity followed 9/11. Americans of all creeds and ethnicities were affected by the heinous act of terror that took place on our soil. Since that day, however, many Muslim Americans have been the victims of terror and hatred. When we, as Americans, took on an “us-against-them” attitude toward terrorism, we had difficulty distinguishing who “they” were. Were all Muslims our enemies? How could we separate the 9/11 terrorists from other Muslims? Do all Muslims believe we Americans are infidels? Will Muslims attack us again?
