The pictures, taken by Dylan Hollingsworth, capture rush events for Alif Laam Meem (ALM) at University of Texas at Dallas, as well as day-to-day activities for fraternity members.

Hollingsworth, along with Wheeler Sparks, hopes to turn his efforts into a documentary about the group as a way of exploring Muslim American identity.

Hollingsworth first got in contact with ALM after spending a summer abroad and taking photographs in Palestine. On his website, he says his Christian, Jewish, and even friends from Texas were concerned and did not react positively to his work.

Do they allow non-Muslims to join? No? Then they should not be allowed on any college campus.

Settle down. You're over-reacting. They are just a bunch of young men drawn together by a common goal and a desire to reach that goal by any means necessary. Sort of like the Hitler Youth.

It will be an interesting experiment, tracking
these individuals over time. Who will become
radicalized? Who will end up in our government?
Who will be BOTH?
