When the Canadian government went to war against Iraq in 1991, many Canadians of Arab or Muslim background became the targets of hostility, harassment, and racism. This book recounts and analyzes their experiences during the Gulf War.
Journalist Zuhair Kashmeri interviewed over seventy Arabs and Muslims across Canada before finally focusing on the experiences of nine families. The nine case studies illustrate the reaction of different social institutions, including schools, the media, police, municipal governments, the work place, and churches.
The Gulf Within also includes a detailed discussion of the actions of police and security services who targetted Canadian Arabs and Muslims during the first Gulf War.
