Here is an interesting study I found on Canada.com.
They found that the number of Mosques in the United States has gone up 74% since 2000. From 1209 to 2106. 257 in New York. 246 in California. 166 in Texas.
Mosque leaders had this to say:
- most say American society is not hostile to Islam
- 98% say Muslims should be involved in US institutions
- 91% say Muslims should be involved in politics
- 87% say “radicalism and extremism” are not increasing among youth
According to Pew Research, there were 2.75 Muslims in a 2011 survey — 1.8 million of which were adults. The ethnic makeup of the participants are diverse: ranging from South Asians, Arabs, African Americans, and an increasing number of immigrants from Somalia, West Africa, and Iraq.
