Short-termism endangers Muslim-Jewish alliances facing the Trump administration. What if there's another Gaza or Lebanon war? Will our current compassion and concern for each other survive the onslaught?

The newly-elected Mayor of London's victory gives us American Muslims hope that our fellow citizens too will stand up to the anti-Muslim hate waged by Donald Trump.
Have a Muslim grandparent, like Obama? Check. Ever taken Arabic, dipped a pita chip into hummus, tipped an Uber driver, grown a beard, dated a Muslim, accidentally smoked hookah? Deportation's too good for you.
