Racism. This would be an example of ethnophaulism. Ethnophaulism is verbal slang against a group. For example calling a black person nappy headed, a white a cracker or someon…e from China a chink. Sorry for the examples being offensive but it is needed to help define.
Prejudice is the personal irrational generalization about an entire category of people (be it based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.); it is a feeling or be…lief. Discrimination is the treatment of people in a negative or distinct fashion because of their membership in a category of people (be it based on race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.). Discrimination can be shown in demonstrable actions, such as laws, housing, jobs, etc.
Answer 1 Some people may hate them just because some Arabs and Islamic people were behind the bombings and stuff no offence but just because some of the bombers were Muslims …i don't think that the whole religion and people who are Muslims should be hated. Answer 2 You should read an orientalism article by Edward Said. Orientalism was something that traditionally divided the East and West, and it is still used as a powerful political tool today. Orientalism basically states that people from the East (including middle east as we now call it) were exotic, seedy, deviants... all sort of negative connotations. You can see a great example in the Disney movie Aladdin. Ali is portrayed as a "street rat" and he steals and lives this bohemian-type life, but he is mostly cavalier and has grown used to living a simple life. This is a very charming and endearing reading of his character, but orientalists would say that his stealing means that he is without morals and order, and that his simple lifestyle is the result of a simple mentality. When people commit hate crimes against Arabs and Muslims they are seeing the systems that those people follow as more primitive, simple, and inferior. For many people, this view justifies imposing an order on others, which leads to war and oppression. Arabs and Muslims are simply viewed by many as one entity, one body that acts a certain way and looks a certain way. Orientalism is a form of stereotyping that for centuries scholars believed to be valid and true.
Prejudice (or foredeeming) is most often used to refer to preconceived judgments toward people or a person because of race/ethnicity, gender, social class, age, disability, re…ligion, sexuality, nationality or other personal characteristics. Discrimination is the prejudicial treatment of an individual based on their membership - or perceived membership - in a certain group or category.
It is unfortunate to have prejudice against any human on the basis of religion, race, color or country. All human beings are the off-spring of a single couple - Hazrat Ada…m (AS) and Hazrat Eve (AS). As such we are all brotheren. All of us have equal fundamental human rights. Unfortunately, practically it does not happen. Different people have prejudice against others. It is not the case only with the Muslims or Arabs. Anyhow, sane minded persons don't nourish prejudice against Muslims and Arabs. The Muslims are living in many countries of the world. No one dislikes them if they abide by the law of the land. As concerns terms, Prejudice towards Muslims can be called Anti-Mohammedanism and Islamophobia, and Prejudice toward Arabs is typically called Anti-Arab Sentiment.
How did the Crusades affect the economy and government of Europe and relations among religious groups?
Well during the crusades many feudal lords lost Thieu money soldiers and recourse's their fore this weakened their power. Crusades also caused new conflicts between Christan's… Jews and Muslim's. Jews ended many Jewish peoples lives on their way to Palestine. Once their they did the same 2 Muslims fear of hatred Christians continued many years After the crusades ended.

What other groups of people suffered from discrimination and prejudice at the same time as African Americans?
The Chinese. (or are they called Sino-Americans)
Why does our American government favor relations with Jewish Israel over their Muslim Arab neighbors if America is a country of all faiths as well as nonbelievers?
America is not "Just" a Christian nation. America is a mixture of many faiths including Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist, Atheist, Agnostics, and people who just d…on't care one way or the other about religion. The one thing we all Americans have in common is the fact that we pay an exurbanite amount of taxes to our government. Much of that tax money is given to Israel. A reasonable person would understand that Israel's favored status as a recipient of our collective tax dollars makes no sense. As a matter of historical fact the Jews rejected Christ, tortured, and killed him. If indeed America is a "Christian" nation, why does our government pander to the descendants of those who killed our Lord?
Who formulated a typology that shows how prejudice and discrimination are related but not the same thing?
W E B Debois
Predjudice and discrimination are basically the same thing but they are different prejudice Alouthough people relate it mostly to racism to african americans it actually means… your against something with no reason or for unreasonable reasons. discrimination means treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit. So I guess you could say they are both related because they both mean to be against something for reasons someone cannot help. also you could say there both against something i guess but it wouldn't be very descriptive.

Because Muslims have different religious believes comparing to the Jews.
This is a very difficult question to answer given the wide variety of Muslim opinions on the matter and the amount of doublethink present in many Muslim opinions. … 1) Muslims Themselves: Muslims are consistently opposed to any discrimination or prejudice against Muslims for being Muslims. This refers to situations of massacres of Muslims such as what the Rohingya face and Kosovars used to face, to the informal discrimination that is common in Europe and the Americas. 2) Religious Minorities: Muslim-majority societies have discriminated against and have continued to discriminate against Non-Muslim members of their society. There are problems concerning treatment of Christians, Jews, Baha'i, Druze, and Yazidi throughout the Middle East. Iran has problems with the treatment of Zoroastrians. Pakistan and Bangladesh have problems concerning the treatment of what few Hindus remain. As concerns the discrimination against Non-Muslims, the majority Muslims continue to refuse to listen to the claims of these minority religions that they are being discriminated against and that all they want is fair treatment under the law. They accuse these people of being Anti-Muslim and wishing to denigrate Islam without cause, even when nearly every Human Rights group agrees that the situation for these minorities is problematic or dire. Some Muslims have protested this treatment, but they have often been branded as traitors, secret Zionists, and non-Muslims. Therefore, it must be assumed that most Muslims support this type of discrimination. Anti-Semitism is especially common in Muslim communities and many (but not all) Muslims believe that the Jews are eternal enemies of Muslims, are descended from apes and pigs, kill Muslims for enjoyment, and many other commonplace Anti-Semitic rhetoric. There are numerous rallies where Muslims declare their unending support to the eradication of the Jewish people and will occasionally praise Hitler's "achievements" in this regard. There are some center-line Muslims (in addition to more liberal Muslims) who oppose this like Yusuf Hamza and Tariq Ramadan, but polls among Muslim communities show deeply-ingrained Anti-Semitic attitudes and a lack of knowledge about actual Jewish customs, beliefs, and history. 3) Ethnic Minorities that are Muslims: Additionally, there is a large amount of discrimination against Mawali (Non-Arab Muslims) in countries with large Arab Muslim populations. Common examples include the treatment of the Kurds, the Circassians, the Darfurians in Sudan, the South Asian Immigrants to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, and the historical repression of Amazigh/Berber culture in North Africa. There has been some change in the Middle East as concerns the Kurds and the Amazigh. Each group has begun to achieve partial autonomy in their countries. The South Asian Immigrants are not as well treated and discussion on their situation is stifled. The status of Circassians varies by country, with Jordan giving them many rights, but Turkey denying them a right to their unique culture. Darfurians are still under attack from government-sponsored militia. However, it seems that progress is being made to discuss the well-being of these people, mostly outside of the countries where the discrimination is taking place. 4) Women: Most Muslims oppose discrimination against women when it is phrased as such. However, they generally support laws and actions that are seen to be discriminatory towards women such as: daughters inheriting at half the rate of sons, women being equally liable for rape as men, women being dissuaded from getting an education, and men presumptively getting custody of the children in a divorce. Less commonly supported, but still legal in many Muslim-majority countries, are honor killings (where a female victim of rape or female participant in consensual premarital sex is killed by her family for "shaming them") and female genital mutilation (where the clitoris is removed in a very painful procedure). 5) Sexual Minorities: Homosexuals, Transsexuals, and nearly every other color of the "LGBT rainbow" are actively discriminated against and punished in Islamic societies. Almost every Muslim-majority nation has criminalized homosexual sex acts and nearly a third have instituted the death penalty for such occurrences. The only three Muslim speakers who have attempted to moderate the Islamic approach towards gays are Irshad Manji, Tawfik Hamid, and Tarek Fatah and all three have been branded as "Anti-Islamic" and "Misguided" by most Muslims. There are many more "Conservative" Muslim Clerics who extol the virtues of butchering homosexuals and have large followings. This would show that most Muslims actively support Sexual Minority discrimination. 6) Apostates and Atheists: Those who leave Islam are subject to both legal death threats (in countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran) and extralegal death threats, primarily in their home communities. While most Muslims would argue that Apostates should not receive the death penalty, they support measures ostracizing them and making life more difficult for them. In Egypt, for example, it is illegal to change your religion from Islam to any other religion and since religion is on a person's ID card, this prevents a person's ID from reflecting their beliefs. Atheists in general are ridiculed and ostracized. Atheism in Islamic communities is rare and where it does exist, its members often keep their opinions in the closet to prevent recriminations. Organizations that help out Atheists in Islamic communities, even in Western countries, are so afraid of such recriminations, that they do not keep membership lists and do not disclose meeting locations.
