The feel-good video of the year
As-salaamu 'alaikum (peace be to you),
The parents of these nine-year-old Muslim twins reported to CAIR that their children had been facing chronic anti-Muslim bullying for years. They told us their son was taunted because of his religion and ethnicity, and was told, "All Muslims are dirty and they kill people." Their daughter was allegedly slapped, hit in the eye and told "go back to your country."
Out of the 2,700 discrimination cases we handled in 2012, the sister and brother who were bullied in school inspired us by turning adversity into an educational opportunity.
There are thousands of other Muslim kids being bullied in school who need CAIR’s intervention. We are looking to put more resources into anti-bullying intiatives in 2013. Help CAIR stand by our youth.
American Muslims know there is one organization that comes to their aid when their children face school bullying, or when they themselves face discrimination or bias in the workplace, in airports, at border crossings, or when exercising their rights as citizens.
I urge you to consider giving $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, or whatever you can.
Please send this appeal to your friends and family, and post on Facebook, Twitter, and other networks.
