Terra Kurmia and his son Adam, 4, participate in an interfaith gathering organized by American Muslim organizations to protest the actions of ISIS, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 20, 2015. Kurmia, an American citizen, is originally from Indonesia. "We are standing for the basic principles of America: life and liberty. It's the one thing that makes this country great." In the aftermath of the Paris massacre, American Muslims face a backlash that lumps them together with an extremist fringe, as politicians make sweeping anti-Muslim statements and advocacy groups report a spike in hate-crime incidents.
