EAGLESWOOD TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (AP) — The recent beheadings of two Americans in the Middle East have added fuel to the angry backlash against Arab-Americans and Muslims that began after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The murders of Paul Johnson and Nicholas Berg triggered hate mail, verbal attacks and anti-Muslim signs. Muslims received death threats and their mosques were vandalized.

“Since 9/11, every time there is an incident overseas attributed to Muslims or Arabs, we go on orange alert ourselves,” said immigration lawyer Sohail Mohammed.

“There are individuals here who are off the wall, who think that every woman who wears a hijab or every man named Mohammed is out to blow things up.”
