Dr. MIKE SMALLEY (Evangelist and religion expert) U.S. MUSLIMS FACE BACKLASH AFTER PARIS ATTACKS Muslims across the U.S. are facing backlash, including vandalism to mosques and Islamic centers, hate-filled phone and online messages and threats of violence since the Paris terror attacks. Advocacy leaders say they have come to expect some anti-Muslim sentiment following such attacks, but they now see a spike that seems notable, stirred by anti-Muslim sentiment in the media. "The picture is getting increasingly bleak," said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. "There's been an accumulation of anti-Islamic rhetoric in our lives and that I think has triggered these overt acts of violence and vandalism." He said the rise in the level of anti-Muslim sentiment is reflected by some GOP presidential candidates, governors and others speaking out in opposition to the U.S. accepting more Syrian refugees. Hooper said the council is seeing an increase in anti-Muslim incidents since Friday's attacks in Paris that killed 129 people and wounded more than 350. Muslim leaders also have reported recent vandalism, threats and other hate crimes targeting mosques in Nebraska, Florida, Texas, Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, New York and other states.

Ambassador FRANCIS ROONEY (Served as U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See under President George W. Bush. He's also the author of "Global Vatican") TENSION REGARDING ISLAM --and-- POPE FRANCIS' VISIT TO AFRICA Francis Rooney contends that the United States must implement a comprehensive strategy of both diplomacy and collaborative action with allies, including military force, to defeat ISIS and Islamic extremists in “the Long War”. He highlights the important role that religious leaders of all faiths—but especially in the Muslim world—must play to stop recruitment of terrorists and bring cultural modernization to the Muslim world in a way that Christianity modernized centuries ago. Also, Pope Francis just returned from a trip to Africa, during which he appealed directly to Muslim groups for peace, even visiting a very dangerous area in the Central African Republic. Can he have any real influence here?
