CAIR: Muslims, Jews Call for Inclusive Day of Prayer

We mentioned days ago a Jewish group’s complaint that the National Day of Prayer had been “hijacked” by the Christian right.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has joined with that group, Jews on First, to call for inclusive celebrations on Thursday, the day of prayer.
Here‘s a news release from CAIR. It urges all people of faith “to contact governors and other elected officials nationwide to ask that any government-sponsored ‘National Day of Prayer’ observances on May 1st be representative of our nation’s religious diversity.”
