'Unprecedented' US anti-Muslim backlash post Paris

A protester holds an American flag and a sign as he stands outside the Islamic Community Center on May 29, 2015 in Phoenix, ArizonaActs of vandalism against mosques, anti-Muslim threats and fear have reached an unprecedented level in America since the Paris attacks, fueled by right-wing intolerance in the presidential campaign, activists say. “In such a short period — it’s what makes it unprecedented,” said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council of American-Islamic Relations, the country’s largest Muslim civil liberties group. Since November 13, CAIR has documented dozens of anti-Muslim incidents, including shots fired at the Meriden mosque in Connecticut, vandalism at an Islamic center in Pflugerville, Texas, where the door was smeared in excrement, and graffiti at an Islamic center in Omaha, Nebraska.
