While kosher meals for the Jewish community are taken into consideration by politicians, halal meals for Muslims are essentially not discussed.
In the wake of the abhorrent events that occurred last Friday in Norway, information has come to light revealing connections between the terrorist suspect, Anders Brehing Breivik, to the anti-Islam movement in England, as well as to prominent Islamophobes in the US.
In this editorial piece, Christina Abraham, CAIR-Chicago’s Civil Rights Director, discusses the fear-mongering and guilt-by-association tactics used by many Islamophobes to smear Muslim institutions. Abraham also explains the troublesome and meaningless “unindicted co-conspirator” label that is maligning hundreds of Muslim organizations and individuals.
“He is a man of great integrity…He’s looking to truly serve his country and his community. Muslims who serve every day in the Illinois State Police deserve a chaplain of their own faith,” said Ahmed Rehab, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
“Our concern is that the Illinois State Police is kowtowing to articles online published by notorious anti-Muslims who have been in the business of smearing Muslim activists leaders and Imams for the longest time,” said Rehab
“It is essentially guilt by association,” said Christina Abraham.
