On November 6, 2002 MSNBC reported that "as Ramadan gets underway, the war on terror heats up and military action against Iraq looms, Muslim communities across America are on a PR mission to explain what their religion is all about. From political fundraisers and food drives to open houses at Mosques, grass roots Muslim groups are working hard to shake off the bad image Islam earned in many Americans’ eyes after the Sept. 11 attacks — an image they fear may get more tarnished with the prospect of another war in the Arab world."
