Muslim rights? No special classes. This is America. No special rights for special classes. This should be interesting to watch how Holder responds to CAIR and how the President Hussein administration will handle this terror tied group.
Recent incidents target Islam, Muslim lobbying, mosques, Islamic religious rights
WASHINGTON, Feb 26, 2009 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today called on Attorney General Eric Holder to protect the right of American Muslims to participate fully in the political process and to practice their faith without fear of government intrusion. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued that appeal following a number of recent government-related incidents targeting Islam, American Muslim lobbying efforts, American mosques, and Muslim religious practices.
In a letter to Attorney General Holder, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad wrote: "Today in Congress, taxpayer funds are being used for the screening of a virulently anti-Islam film and to promote the Islamophobic views of its producer. Despite appeals to offer a balancing perspective to the closed-door screening, elected officials and congressional staff will hear only anti-Muslim invective, without an opportunity for response from American Muslims.
