Mr. Kinsley even gives credit to former President George W. Bush Jr. making a “huge increase in public sensitivity to anti-Muslim and anti-Arab prejudice”, a primary focus after the terrorist attacks.

A large contributor to the reintegration of Muslims was the airport securities transition from “racial profiling” spot checks to random spot checks.
