Flashpoints: Anti-Muslim Hate Crimes in Chicago
Pacifica Radio
April 11, 2005

Interview with Solange Etcheverriez
Pacifica Radio Host

Ahmed Rehab talks to Flashpoints' Solange Etcheverriez on Pacifica National Radio about anti-Muslim hate crimes in Chicago. He argues that the public discourse on Islam in this country is problematic as it only defines and analyzes Islam and Muslims through their perceived problem areas while hardly ever recognizing the many positive realities of their daily lives. This perpetual intertwinement between Islam and violent conflict - whether it be terrorism or wars - as reported through the media leaves a negative imprint on the minds of audiences which can induce contempt in the hearts of the susceptible and, in turn, possibly evolve into discriminative activity or even hate crimes against Muslims.
