IRVING, Ill. (AP) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations is crying foul over an emergency preparedness drill targeting a simulated mosque in the central Illinois commuity of Irving.
IRVING — A national Islamic advocacy group says an emergency preparedness drill targeting a simulated mosque in this small community wrongly typecast Islamic houses of worship as security threats. “It really was in poor taste, probably as a result of a lack of cultural prowess on the part of the person who made that choice,” Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Chicago chapter, said Wednesday.
The humbling of Don Imus last spring over his remarks about the Rutgers women’s basketball team has done nothing to quiet Michael Savage, a radio host with a far bigger following and far more checkered track record.
