CAIR-San Diego, Interfaith and Community Leaders to Condemn U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association’s Anti-Muslim Event

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 2/20/18) – On Wednesday, February 21, the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) will join interfaith and community partners at a news conference outside a U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association (USNAAA) event in that city featuring an anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.

WHAT:  CAIR-San Diego and Interfaith Partners Stand Against All forms of Hate

WHEN:  Wednesday, February 21, 11 a.m. PST

WHERE: In front of Dave and Buster’s Mission Valley, 2931 Camino Del Rio N, San Diego, CA 92108

CONTACT:  CAIR-San Diego Executive Director Hanif Mohebi, 858-774-9991, hmohebi@cair.com

CAIR says the speaker at the event, John Guandolo, is an infamous Islamophobe who claims a former CIA director was a “secret Muslim” and that Muslim hotel managers, cabbies and 7-11 workers seek to take over America.

Last week, CAIR called on USNAAA to drop Guandolo as a speaker.
