CAIR: Politicians Should Not Cower Before Bigots


CAIR-CA: MUSLIM AWARD

Re "Boxer rescinds award to Islamic activist," Jan. 6

I was saddened when I read about Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) rescinding her award to a Muslim activist.

Muslims across the nation are proud of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for being the ambassadors for Muslims in the United States. I'm concerned that Boxer made her decision without meeting with the council to hear its side of the story. She should return the award and maintain the relationship she started with California Muslims.

For a liberal and progressive politician like Boxer, she should be better than to cower to the right-wing, anti-Muslim and pro-Israeli elements on which she based her facts.
