On October 25, 2001 The Los Angeles Times reported, "Muslim Population Inflated, Studies Find." The article references the CUNY study and the AJC-commissioned report. "The studies, coming at a time of intense interest in Muslim Americans following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, have reignited the testy debate over whether Islamic organizations are vastly exaggerating their numbers--or whether lower estimates are politically biased by Jewish interests."
