NY: TV Station Looks at Local Muslim Community


360 VIEW: TAKES A LOOK AT MUSLIMS IN THE VALLEY

This week, our 360 view is on race.

But we include religion today, because many Americans consider Arab people--- and Muslims one-in-the-same.

They are not, of course, but it's difficult to discuss the differences in these post 9-11 times.

Cornell university did a poll and found nearly half of all Americans want civil liberties for Muslim "Americans" restricted.

The poll found 27% thought they should register their location with the government.

A total of 26% said the government should monitor their mosques and 22% approved of our government profiling Arabs and Muslims for extra scrutiny.
