Which Way, L.A.?

The Hajj and Muslims in America

From politics to the workplace, are Muslims here carving out their own identity?  Sara Terry guest hosts.  (An expanded version of this discussion was broadcast earlier today on To the Point.)

The Muslim religious tradition of Haj has begun, drawing Muslims from around the world to religious sites in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. While here in the US, the nation's first Muslim congressman will be sworn into office next week. How do American Muslims practice their religion in a culture that is often at odds with their beliefs? Do immigrant Muslims and American converts differ in their religious beliefs? Is a distinct American-Muslim identity emerging?
