A leading Muslim-American rights group has called on U.S. authorities to be more vigilant, following what it says are death threats being made against Muslims living in the United States. It comes after two men – claiming to be affiliated with ISIL – attacked the event in Texas last week. Many Muslim-Americans say crimes like that have nothing to do with their communities, but they are damaging their image. CCTV America’s Roee Ruttenberg has the story.
