Social media exploded this week when a Muslim-American kid who brought a home-made clock to school was arrested on suspicion of building a bomb. Ahmed Mohamed was interrogated by five police officers, handcuffed, arrested and taken away. The hashtag I Stand with Ahmed went viral, and the 14-year old was invited to Silicon Valley, MIT and the White House.
But Muslim-Americans say it's nothing new, and yesterday Donald Trump failed to repudiate a questioner who called Muslims America's "problem." Fourteen years after September 11, are Muslim citizens still the victims of an "us versus them" mentality that's all too familiar?
