"Of all the religions in the United States, Islam is the only religion for which the government has a foreign policy, according to Abukhalil. “You do not have American foreign policy for Buddhism, for Judaism, Presbyterian [or] Quakers, but for Islam, you do,” Abukhalil said. “This is because Islam is not a reference to a religion here. Muslims are referred to as people who inhabit a world that is apart from anything else.”"
