Acknowledging Prejudice: Within America's War on Terror

The horrors of September 11th, 2001 sent waves of terror throughout the United States. The waves of terror gave way to a storm of legal action against enemy combatants. The Federal initiative known as PENTBOM (Pentagon Twin Towers Bombing Investigation), was only an umbrella for a multitude of legal actions against the Arab Muslim South Asian Community of the United States and abroad. The presentation explores discriminatory actions against a growing AMSA community, highlighting current damaging effects on American citizens who practice the religion of Islam. AMSA citizens have endured unfair, if any legal representation in the American Judicial System. By examining two Supreme Court Cases this presentation guides the listener to awareness of current discrimination against American citizens of the Arab Muslim South Asian community.
