CAIR Marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day with Call for Rejection of Anti-Semitism, All Forms of Hate

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/27/19) – The Council on American-Islamic-Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a call for rejection of Anti-Semitism and all other forms of hate.

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:

“Today we honor the memory of the six million Jews and millions of other innocent people who lost their lives as a result of hate inspired by a corrupt and corrupting ideology of racial, ethnic and religious superiority. A new strain of that corrupt ideology infects our nation and world today. On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we must all recommit ourselves to the fight against hatred, injustice and oppression.”

[NOTE: United Nations Resolution 60/7 established January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.]
