CAIR-SAN DIEGO REP SPEAKS ON ISLAMOPHOBIA

(SAN DIEGO, CA, 11/3/06) – A representative of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) spoke yesterday before the Interreligious Council of San Diego (IRC San Diego) on the topic of the origins of Islamophobia and Anti-Muslim attitudes.

Members of the Interreligious Council received a copy of the CAIR 2006 report on “American Public Opinion of Islam and Muslims,” a public opinion survey that gauged anti-Muslim sentiment in 2005.

The presentation was concluded with a question and answer session in which members of the Interreligious Council asked about how CAIR and other mainstream Muslim organizations are combating the negative images of Islam as well as drowning out extremist interpretations of the faith as perpetuated overseas.
