""Do you know me? Do you know my heart? Why are you judging by looking at me?" Bahaa Ellaithy, a 45-year-old high school math teacher, was born in Egypt and now lives in Brooklyn. After @realdonaldtrump called for #Muslims to be barred from entering the United States, @nytimes asked Muslims in New York to share their experiences as Muslims, New Yorkers and Americans. "When I'm on the train, people don't want to sit beside me," Bahaa said. "I'd like to talk but it's easier to be silent. It's sad. It's easier for those who look American, but people who dress like me with a beard and kufi and my wife, who is covered, guys on the train see you and give you a grilled look."
