Title: Innocent Until Proven Muslim

Innocent Until Proven Muslim

In Innocent until Proven Muslim: Islamophobia, the War on Terror, and the Muslim Experience Since 9/11, Dr. Maha Hilal tells the powerful story of two decades of the War on Terror, exploring how the official narrative has justified the creation of a sprawling apparatus of state violence that is rooted in Islamophobia and excused its worst abuses. Dr. Hilal not only provides an overview of the many iterations of the War on Terror in law and policy, but also examines how Muslim Americans have internalized oppression, how some influential Muslim Americans have perpetuated collective responsibility, and how the lived experiences of Muslim Americans reflect what it means to live as part of a “suspect” community.
