Anti-Muslim assaults reach 9/11-era levels, FBI data show

Kishi, Katayoun. “Anti-Muslim assaults reach 9/11-Era levels, FBI data show.” Pew Research Center, 21 Nov. 2016,

The Power Research center is where several of my sources get their data from that argues Islamophobia to be harming muslims.

In the article “Anti-Muslim assaults reach 9/11- era levels, FBI dana shows” by Katayoun Kishi, talks about the statistics muslims are facing since 9/11

“Most Americans say there is “a lot” of discrimination against Muslims in the United States today – roughly six-in-ten U.S. adults (59%) said this in a January 2016 Pew Research Center survey. About three-quarters of Americans (76%) also said discrimination against Muslims in the U.S. was increasing.”

“The same survey found that almost half of American adults (49%) think at least “some” Muslims in the U.S. are anti-American, including 11% who think “most” or “almost all” are anti-American. Another survey from about the same time (December 2015) found that 46% of Americans thought Islam was more likely than other religions to encourage violence.”


There is also a chart in this site that provides data from the FBI about spiked is violence against Islam
