Rise in Anti-Muslim Feeling in England

There has been a significant rise in the number of attacks upon Muslims in England with such events going from 201 in June to 258 in July. An imam was brutally assaulted according to The Independent as part of the anti-Muslim feeling. Most probably these attacks are a response to attempts at bombing airports in England.

One must admit the United States is not witnessing such attacks upon Muslims. This may stem from better economic and social integration of Muslims within American society. There is no question that Muslims immigrating to America have much higher education backgrounds than those entering England and thus have higher incomes.
