La communauté arabo-musulmane aux Etats-Unis : entre rêve et réalité

Lanouar Ben Hafsa


This paper aims to give an overview of the way Arab-American Muslims adapt to the United States and its institutions. In effect, despite their growing numbers over the last few decades, and despite the role they could play if, like other ethnoreligious groups, develop a distinct and cohesive identity, Americans of Arab and Muslim descent are still striving to unify their ranks and consolidate their efforts in a changing socio-political context. The September 11, 2001 attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon not only destroyed any hope to achieve their goals but also reinforced the stereotype which makes them the members of an “alien” creed that preaches hatred and supports terrorism.
