CAIR VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS BIAS IN REP. KING'S ANTI-MUSLIM HEARINGS

ANAHEIM, CA, 6/17/11) -- The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA)

 today released a video following Rep. Peter King's (R-NY) second McCarthyesque hearing targeting American Muslims.

The video, "The Good, the Bad, and the King," highlights the Congressman's false allegations against American Muslims and the manufacturing of the "sharia threat" by some to stoke fear of Muslims and their faith. The video also features voices that have denounced the broad-brush indictment of American Muslims.

"Elected officials must be commended for standing by the principles of equality and inclusivity and rejecting Rep. King's efforts to sow fear of an entire religious minority through his biased hearings," said CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush.

Americans are encouraged to share the video with family and friends, and through social media.

The second hearing, "The Threat of Muslim-American Radicalization in U.S. Prisons," held Wednesday, was described by Chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus Rep. Judy Chu (D-32) as "contributing to a climate of fear and prejudice."

Rep. Mike Honda (D-15) stated the hearings reminded him of his time in internments camps.

Moreover, the National Jewish Democratic Council released a statement saying the hearings were "a manifestation of an upsetting GOP obsession with American Muslims."

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
