American Jews Think Pretty Highly of American Muslims
This was very nice to see. After my positive interactions here at LGF it really doesn’t surprise me, but nonetheless it’s heartening to see numbers confirming the empathy I’ve personally experienced. It’s my sincere hope that American Muslims will appreciate it and return it in kind, so I’ll be passing it along to friends. It’s a great early Eid gift.
Oh, and a shout out to the secularists, atheists, and agnostics who surpass even American Jews in believing American Muslims are not sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

There’s a lot of bad blood between Jews and Muslims around the world, but according to a new report by the Abu Dhabi Gallup Center, American Jews hold fewer prejudices against American Muslims than most other religious groups.
Jews, Muslims: You guys should hang out more often.
