CAIR-FL Airs Anti-Terror Ads on Limbaugh, Beck Radio Shows

CAIR-FL AIRS ANTI-TERROR ADS ON LIMBAUGH, BECK RADIO SHOWS

(MIAMI, FL, 4/15/07) – The South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFL) recently launched an anti-terror advertising campaign on the local Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh radio programs. CAIR-SFL’s campaign focused on those two programs because of the hosts’ frequent claims that Muslims do not do enough to condemn terrorism and the overall Islamophobic tone of the broadcasts.

The spots, which are scheduled to air for two weeks, state:

“As Americans, we feel confused when we hear that Islam is a religion of peace, because we see reports about acts of violence by extremists. American Muslims condemn terrorism. The Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, was among the first Muslim organizations to publicly denounce such misguided actions. CAIR is America’s largest Islamic civil rights advocacy group, and CAIR promotes peaceful dialogue among all people. Visit cair.com for statements condemning terrorism.”
