SENATOR BOXER RESCINDS AWARD TO CAIR

AAH IS PROUD OF SENATOR FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING

(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH), a civil rights organization and terrorism watchdog group, appreciates the decision made by United States Senator Barbara Boxer to rescind the award her office had presented to the Executive Director of CAIR-Sacramento Basim Elkarra.

Both CAIR and Elkarra have exhibited the type of extremist behavior that is not worthy of awards or accolades. Former officials from CAIR are currently in prison, serving time for terrorist-related crimes involving Hamas and Al-Qaeda. In fact, CAIR can thank Mousa Abu Marzook, the second in command of Hamas today, for its very existence.

Unfortunately, too many in America's government, media and religious institutions have made CAIR out to be a legitimate group, rarely mentioning its numerous ties to terrorism. AAH and its subdivision CAIR Watch were created to expose CAIR and others like it for having these ties.

AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, "We are proud of Senator Boxer. By taking back this award, the Senator has shown that she is conscious of the 'extreme' problems that Basim Elkarra and his group, CAIR, pose to the public. We only hope that others recognize this, as well, and never again think about granting CAIR or its representatives any type of award."
