Outreach Meeting In Tenn. Clouded By Anti-Muslim Uproar

Monday, June 10, 2013

The small town of Manchester, Tenn., is trying to figure out what happened this past week. Hundreds of activists heckled a U.S. Attorney who was making a speech on hate crimes and cheered as Muslims described the firebombing of a nearby mosque. The activists say they feel Islam is getting unfair preference by the U.S. government. Muslims say the incident shows they have lots of work to do.
