(SEATTLE, WA, 6/8/07) - The Seattle chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Seattle) today expressed concern about a June 4 program on KIRO-AM radio in which host Dori Monson and callers discussed denying employment to American Muslims because of their faith.
To listen to the segment, go to:
"Denying anyone employment because of their religion is un-American and illegal," said CAIR-Seattle President Arsalan Bukhari. "Debating such bigoted topics does a disservice to Americans of all faiths."

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.
