A MILE IN ANOTHER WOMAN'S BURQA:

I've Faced the Charge of Dual Loyalty (RAHM EMANUEL, 3/07/19, The Atlantic)

Maybe I'm sensitive to this charge of dual allegiance because it's been wielded against me in some of my political campaigns. I've been accused of actually being a citizen of Israel. (That's not true, although my father was an Israeli immigrant to the United States.) In 2002, well before Donald Trump and other "birthers" questioned Barack Obama's citizenship, I had to produce my U.S. birth certificate in my first run for Congress to disprove false assertions about my background and loyalties.

But it's not just me who's been subject to questions of dual loyalty.

Indeed, it's the experience of all Muslims.
