Georgetown: Anti-Muslim rhetoric linked with increased violence to US Muslims

So are some of the words used to describe this year's presidential election campaign. Muslim Americans now can use another word: violent. That is the conclusion of a Georgetown University report published by the Jesuit school's Alwaleed Center for Muslim Christian Understanding. The report links anti-Muslim political rhetoric with an uptick on physical assaults against Muslims in the United States. It is titled When Islamophobia Turns Violent: The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.
During the course of 2015, there were 174 reported incidents of anti-Muslim violence, an increase from 154 hate crimes in 2014. The surge coincides with the start of the election campaign season, which the report dates from the March 2015 announcement of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's candidacy. Since the start of the presidential election cycle, there have been 180 reported acts or threats of anti-Muslim violence. American Muslims are now six to nine times more likely to suffer such attacks than pre-9/11. American Muslim men are twice as likely to be victims of physical assaults than women and 11 times more likely to be victims of murder. Much of the report focuses on the impact of Republican presidential presumptive nominee Donald Trump. Other Republican candidates were also criticized for utterances which the report described as Islamophobic.
