Islamophobia refers to the dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslims. After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, prejudice and discrimination against Muslims (and those people perceived to be Muslims) spiked, including violent attacks. Recently, assaults against Muslims have been spiking, surpassing post-2001 levels. At the same time, many people serving in the US Armed Forces identify as Muslim, and this has created some opportunities as well as some tensions as troops are deployed overseas in several Muslim-majority countries. After reviewing the required resources, please address the following:
How have attacks against Muslims changed since 2001? What factors have led to these changes? Describe an example of Islamophobia in US society.
What challenges do Muslim soldiers face serving in the US military? How has the US military accommodated and supported Muslim soldiers and their religious traditions?
Describe some of the benefits of having Muslim Americans willing to serve in the US military.
How has the increasing prevalence of Islamophobia in society influenced the political engagement of Muslim Americans? What are the potential implications of this on the political system?
How have social movements harnessed the power of political activism to effect change in racial bias, such as Islamophobia? What impact does this have on racial and ethnic minorities serving in the military?
