U.S. Muslims happy with their country despite pressure, study finds
by Richard Allen Greene
People look at Zeinab Chami a little warily sometimes, she says, especially when she travels outside big cities.
She started wearing a headscarf when she was in her early 20s, making herself "a visible Muslim."
That "can really be an emotional strain," she says.
Life is getting harder for American Muslims, she says, given the media's portrayal of Muslims, the false perception that President Barack Obama is Muslim, and the rise of the tea party, whose most vocal leaders, according to Chami, "spew vitriol against anyone perceived to be 'foreign.'"
