FEATURING AMANI AL-KHATAHTBEH – Donald Trump would like all Americans to believe that every Muslim person is a member of ISIS in waiting, ready to commit heinous acts of “home-grown terrorism” against innocent people.

His call to ban all Muslims in the US has already had real world impacts, as it emboldens nascent Islamophobia and normalizes hateful rhetoric.

The best antidote to this latest anti-Muslim chapter in the US are the voices of Muslim Americans themselves.

Among them is my guest, the founder and editor-in-chief of, the top Muslim women’s blog in the US. Amani Al-Khatahtbeh has just written a book, Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age.
