NY Times on relationships between Muslims

The New York Times has a story about the tension between black and immigrant Muslims at mosques in the New York area. This is also true in smaller communities. In Anchorage, there are at least two Muslim groups. The Arabs meet at one and the blacks and immigrants from Pakistan and elsewhere meet at another. It's not always that cut and dried, but this is an interesting article in that it shows the Muslim community as richer and more diverse than the uniform descriptions it is sometimes given.
