  1. Good article, Jay. I covered that video on my blog back in May. To try to answer your title question, it’s difficult to say. Looking at various European countries, which have much higher percentages of Muslims living in their countries than the US, a few political parties on the extreme right have tried to use Islamophobia as their selling point to voters. (Fortunately, most of these parties are marginal, usually with low single-digit returns.) I think most Muslims would say (or at least hope) that as more people interact with Muslims, they will judge for themselves that the propaganda they’ve heard is nothing more than lies and half-truths. Insha’allah.
