I am delighted that people are eager to fight Islamophobia through legal policies, but I wonder when we will grow to demonstrate the same level of commitment to the social mobilization that will actually force the legal process to respond to it. That social mobilization will necessitate for Muslims to form increasingly deep and meaningful alliances (as some people have already done) with civil rights organizations, African-American organizations, Hispanic organizations, immigrant rights organizations, women’s rights organizations, gay/lesbian groups, and others.
