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
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
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."
