Life for Muslims Five Years After 9/11

In the days, weeks, and months after September 11th, 2001, Muslims were a target of much American outrage. In Greater Boston — the starting point for two of the hijacked aircraft — police searched, homes, offices and hotel rooms of suspected associates, while at the same time they also guarded mosques and other Islamic institutions against threats and attacks.

Five years later, the perception of common values among Arabs, Muslims, and terrorists continues and — as WBUR's Martha Bebinger reports — many Muslims say it's forcing them to make subtle and significant changes in their lives. She begins this report, looking at an incident that took place within hours of 9/11.
