Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, yesterday proposed an ideological test for potential immigrants who could have what he calls radical Islamic beliefs. The proposal was part of a speech in Ohio that put forward his vision for dealing with terrorism.
Many Muslim activists believe such language adds to a climate of hate attacks against Muslims. Most recently, an Imam and his assistant were murdered over the weekend in Queens, New York. They were both shot in the head - execution style.
We talk about Trump’s speech and Islamophobia with Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago Office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
