The Islam charm offensive: young Muslims react after their 'loyalty to the US' is questioned
It's not easy being a Muslim in the United States. Many are suspected of being terrorists, after the Fort Hood shootings and the failed attack on Times Square.

Critics say it smacks of McCarthyism, while young Muslims are starting to take to the streets on an Islam charm offensive.
