ABSTRACT
This article highlights the ways in which America's Muslim community is different from those in Britain and the rest of Europe. The author suggests that, based on distinctions such as the relatively low number of Muslims in the United States, their diversity and integration into mainstream society, U.S. emphasis on religious liberty and the visibility of Muslim political activist groups in the U.S., Americans need not fear homegrown terrorism the way many European countries do.
