CAIR-Chicago’s Executive Director Ahmed Rehab spoke to students at the University of Illinois at Chicago on Wednesday, March 4th. Rehab spoke about ISIS and the difficulties surrounding the issues of Islamophobia and bigotry in the United States today.
On February 11, CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab was a panelist for an event hosted at Purdue University. Approximately 400 people were in attendance to see Rehab discuss the threat ISIS, along with Professor of Islamic Studies Scott Alexander, and author, attorney, and political philosopher Rafia Zakaria.
“We need to empower our communities in which to be able to detect that and prevent that before it’s too late,” said Ahmed Rehab, Council on American Islamic Relations.
Ahmed Rehab joined WBEZ Worldview to discuss the impact ISIS is having on the Western world.
Recognizing the vital need to support communities across Chicagoland, CAIR-Chicago continues its efforts to foster dialogue and defend civil rights.
This month CAIR launched Islamophobia.org, a website dedicated to documenting and exposing groups, as well as individuals, promoting Islamophobia in the United States.
Tuesday’s headline from the Chicago Sun-Times, “ISIS in Chicago”, was not only sensational but inaccurate and misleading. A more accurate headline would have been: “A Chicagoan in ISIS?” (The added question mark underscoring that it is as of yet an allegation, not a finding).
