It's easy to tar an entire group because of the actions of a few — but it also is unfair and inaccurate, says Dr. Muhammad Hussain, a local Muslim.
Many Americans still don't have much real information about Islam, Hussain said.
"It's hard sometimes for people to sort out and separate the acts of a few people from a whole group of people."
A Jew walked into a gay bar in Israel in August and killed two people and wounded several others.
"You can't assume that all Jews are like that and hate gay people and will kill them," Hussain said.
