Research: American Muslims are Model U.S. Citizens
A new survey by the ISPU found that American Muslims are among the most religious and patriotic citizens. 85% of American Muslims "have a strong American identity," just like 84% of Protestants. They are also just as likely as other Americans to identify strongly with their faith — 89% of Muslims, 84% of Jews, and 95% of Catholics and Protestants shared the sentiment.
