Muslim leader says post-9/11 fallout has grown worse
by Kate Morrissey
The American Muslim community has felt the effects of the 9/11 attacks for the past 15 years, according to Hanif Mohebi, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations chapter in San Diego.
"As human beings, we're all affected in negative way, but I think what hurts the Muslim community more is that fingers are pointed at us as if we're part of the problem," Mohebi said.
He said he's frustrated that he continues to be asked to answer for criminals that don't reflect him, his community or his religion.
