(WASHINGTON, D.C., 7/21/13) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today offered condolences to the family of pioneering White House journalist Helen Thomas, who died yesterday in Washington, D.C., at the age of 92.

Thomas, the daughter of Lebanese immigrants, was known for her persistent style of questioning during the administrations of nine presidents. In 2010, CAIR presented Thomas with a lifetime achievement award at the civil rights group's annual banquet.

In a statement, CAIR said:

"We offer sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Helen Thomas, whose pioneering work helped shape the profession of journalism. She will be fondly remembered by the American Muslim community and by all those who value a free press and transparent governance."

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.
