CAIR-Chicago is proud to announce the speakers and awardees of our 9th Annual Banquet on Saturday, May 4th, 2013!
United Coalition of national and local Syrian-American and Muslim-American organizations joined by Chicago family members of those Killed spoke at a press conference held at the CAIR-Chicago office, on August 27, to discuss steps to end the bloodshed in Syria.
CAIR-Chicago announced today that local and national Syrian and Muslim American leaders, joined by affected Chicago families who have lost loved ones, will be holding a press conference to discuss steps to end the bloodshed in Syria.
It’s hardly breaking news: the far-right Anti-Muslim website FrontPageMag today did what it was created to do: lie about Muslims. Now they are claiming that Illinois Governor Pat Quinn supposedly appointed the “Muslim Brotherhood” to his newly created Muslim Advisory Council.
“Frontpagemag is a joke,” said Ahmed Rehab. “No one I know takes it seriously. It’s a tool of David Horowitz, the Grand Wizard of Islamophobia, the purveyor of other anti-Muslim platforms as the notorious JihadWatch run by his minion, Robert Spencer.
The American Islamic College held a private luncheon for the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sheikh Ali Gomaa, and distinguished guests on July 5th, 2010.
Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of CAIR-Chicago, moderated the event and introduced the guest of honor.
