CAIR-Chicago calls on local police departments in Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park to cancel scheduled upcoming trainings by prominent anti-Muslim bigot Sam Kharoba.
“How long are we going to go pretending like there is no relationship between this acquiescence of hatred and politics and the inclination of violence on the ground?” asked Ahmed Rehab, executive director of CAIR-Chicago. “You cannot demonize a community and then be surprised when they’re under attack.”
The Lombard, Ill. police department are investigating an attack on the College Preparatory School of America – an Islamic school in this Chicago suburb. CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab responds.
Two suburban Islamic institutions apparently were the targets of weekend incidents that caused property damage and raised concerns among Islamic leaders that the attacks were intended to harm worshippers.
The Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) today called for an FBI hate crime investigation of an acid bomb attack on a Muslim school in that state.
“It’s basically the ideal zoning application for DuPage County, with absolutely no controversy surrounding it,” said Amina Sharif, communications coordinator with the Chicago Council on American-Islamic Relations. “The area where it’s located is already commercially zoned, next to a synagogue, and there is more than adequate parking there. If the DuPage County Board had rejected this, then we’d have an obvious problem. This is a very easy thing to approve.”
