Islamophobia: Manufacturing the “Muslim Menace”

When: Sunday, June 26, 2011, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Where: Grace Church (Newton Corner) • 76 Eldredge Street, Newton Corner • Newton

This program will explore the efforts of the Federal government to isolate, harass, and intimidate American Muslims in the name of "Homeland Security". Entrapment and dramatic media-assisted raids have allowed the government to present a picture of the American Muslim community as a breeding ground for dangerous terrorists. Subsequent, often questionable, prosecutions have led to some convictions, some charges being dismissed and some accused accepted guilty pleas to dramatically reduced charges under the threat of long prison sentences.
