The prospect of Syrian refugee resettlement has raised concerns among some South Carolinians about the growing presence of Muslims in the state.  This panel will addresses such concerns and will attempt to put fears about Muslims and Islamic extremism into perspective.  Panel participants will discuss the history of Islamophobia in the West and will describe the ethnic and socio-economic diversity of U.S. Muslims.  The panel will explain how the situation in Europe in terms of immigration and refugee resettlement differs from that in the U.S.
