CAIR-Chicago responds with a letter to the producer of KFKF 94.1 in Kansas City, Missouri about their tasteless game show: “Beat the Terrorist.”
Amina Sharif, communications director for the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the book depicts the events of 9/11 and the aftermath in a “slanted” manner, painting Muslims in broad strokes and failing to distinguish extremist radicals from the majority of Muslims.
“It’s hateful, inflammatory and completely inappropriate for children or anyone for that matter,” Sharif said.
“It is outrageous and very sad that a representative of the people would partake in an attack against a global faith,” said Ahmed Rehab, a spokesman for the Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “He could have said, ‘a savage ideology’ or ‘a savage interpretation’ or any type of nuance that a politician like himself knows how to do.”
