“We know people don’t vote in midterm elections like they do for presidential elections,” said Ali Malik, American Democracy Project fellow at CAIR-Chicago. “But I’m telling people that for us in the Muslim community it goes far beyond the controversy over the proposed New York City Ground Zero mosque. There is serious Islamophobia going on and we need to vote for people who will represent all voters equally.”
“The overlying mantra is that we belong here, this is our country, too,” said Ahmed Rehab, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations “That’s something you do not through assertive statement, but assertive action.”
