Muslim and American [5.7.2007]


Last week, a civil rights group in Minnesota raised allegations about anti-Muslim slurs at a middle school. School officials say they are investigating. 

Muslim Americans say incidents like this are not so rare these days. Imani Jaafar-Mohammed and her husband Murad Mohammed are both American. They went to law school, got married, and bought their first house here. But when they moved into that house, they were confronted by a neighbor.  

He started throwing pork in our back yard. He would come under the window and shout "terrorist," and shout at the window. And he specifically did it when he knew that I was home by myself.
-Imani Jaafar-Mohammed
