Arabs are people whose lineage comes from the Arabian Peninsula or are people that Speak Arabic. Muslims could be anybody that practices Islam as their form of religion. From what I have found, the United States has not done anything good in the way of their policies concerning treatment of Muslims and Arabs. One report states that the FBI would allow the use of race and ethnicity when opening an investigation. (Abdus Sattar Ghazali, July 2008, http://www.opednews.com/articles/American-Muslims-alarmed-a-by- Abdus-Sattar-Ghaza-080703-362.html) It also states that everyone is a suspect until proven guilty which is not new. That is the way it is anymore with our government. Abdus Sattar Ghazali also wrote about homegrown terrorism in May 2008 on the www.amperspective.com website. He says that the New York police department’s report in August 2007 would lead to negative stereotyping and unwarranted suspicions of the Muslim community.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
