NEW YORK — There is the dread of leaving the house that morning. People might stare, or worse, yell insults.More on this intense fear of "backlash" at "MSNBC"
Prayers are more intense, visits with family longer. Mosques become a refuge.
But was this "backlash" simply a work of fiction, when ten years on muslims are saying how much love and support they received following allah's outrage:

Muslims say West Virginia supportive following 9/11
by Charlotte Ferrell Smith
CHARLESTON, W.Va.-- Members of the local Islamic community were touched by the support they received following the tragic terrorist attacks that occurred Sept. 11, 2001.
"It was amazing information," Haque said. "They wanted to show 'we don't blame the Muslim community as a whole.' Those memories are fresh in their minds. There was a show of support and trust."More on the "touching support" at "Charleston Daily Mail"
Terrorism and violence are contradictory to the doctrine of the Islamic faith, he said.

Muslims in central Wisconsin reflect on the 10 years since 9/11
Sep. 5, 2011
MARSHFIELD -- As the news spread Sept. 11, 2001, that the people responsible for the terrorist were likely Muslim followers of Osama Bin Laden, Dr. Qasim Raza, a Marshfield Clinic physician and a devout Muslim native of Pakistan, began to worry.
"I was frightened in my heart for many things," said Raza as he and other members of Marshfield's Islamic Society of Central Wisconsin talked about the events of 9/11 and how it affected their lives.
Like millions of others on that day, the men and their families were shocked and disturbed by the tragedy. The terrorist attacks were based on a twisted Muslim ideology that is a perversion of Islam, the men said.
"The fear for our families grew," Raza said. He worried that there would be a backlash against Muslims living in the United States.
In the days after the attacks, Raza's telephone rang as neighbors, friends and colleagues called to express their support for the Muslim family and offer of help if the family needed anything.

Of course, while the mythical "backlash" doesn't happen in response to allah's atrocities, muslims still churn out the lines about "twisted muslim ideology" and "perversion of islam", instead of sourcing the dirty deeds to the words and demands of "allah" as recorded in the blasphemous koran.
