My husband is Muslim American.

Photo: amrufm The negative perception of Muslim-Americans in the media is completely inaccurate.

I knew not all Muslims-Americans were bad, but it was only since I had a personal connection with one that I began to understand how wrong the media really was. In a Gallup Poll, it shows...

Either way, the people are likely worse off today with the government's crackdowns and purges on institutions throughout the country. It's not clear of course that...
