Project SALAM Database

The purpose of the Project SALAM database is to bring together information in one place about United States Justice Department’s post-9/11 terrorism-related prosecutions and convictions of Muslims.

How to Use the Database:

Be a Guest!

Click HERE and click "Guest Account" to view all records in the database. You will be able to search and find specific cases.

Adopt a Defendant:

  1. First, sign in as a guest. Find between one and five defendants you would like to research.
  2. Email Lynne Jackson with the name(s) of the defendants you wish to research. Also, if you do not wish to use your full name as the "adopter", please email Lynne the name you would like to use.
  3. Within a business day, Lynne will asign the adopted defendants to you and email you a password.
  4. Sign in HERE to the database using your new user name and password.
  5. You will be able to add information to your adoptee's information.
  6. Use google or other search engines to search for news stories and information on the defendant. Lookup the defendant in wikipedia.
  7. Enter the information you have found. The only restriction is if you wish to add documents. Due to software limitations, you cannot upload documents to the website. Instead, email Lynne Jackson the documents you wish to add to your adoptee's record, along with the adoptee's name, and Lynne will add the documents to the file.
  8. If you finish with your first defendant's, you are welcome to adopt more. Just email Lynne Jackson the names of the next defendants you wish to research.


Please, if you have any questions at all, email Lynne Jackson and she will email back as soon as possible (expect no more than one business day).
