Now this is interesting:

Legislative trends in the United States, both before and after 9/11, show increased tolerance toward Muslim customs and beliefs. This is evident in several actions over the past few years. Halal food laws were passed in New Jersey and Illinois, each of which represent nearly half a million American Muslims.

This is discussing laws that make it illegal to sell food label “halal” if it is not, in fact, halal. I’m fine with that. However, this tidbit comes from “The Diversity Channel” which is a consulting group that support “diversity” in the corporate workplace. I find this claim quite stunning, given this source. Such outfits tend to be exquisitely sensitive to the slightest wiff of political incorrectness. Yet their claim is that subsequent to the 11 Sep attacks, the legal atmosphere became more tolerant to Islam. Not exactly an endorsement of the creeping fascism school of thought.
