of the Muslim and Arab-American communities who have

Muslim and Arab lives are somehow less valuable than Israeli lives," said CAIR
Executive Director Nihad Awad. "Targeting civilians to achieve a political
goal is terrorism, whether the target is a pizza parlor in Tel Aviv or an apartment
building in Beirut."
CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 32 offices,
chapters and affiliates nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is
to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil
liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote
justice and mutual understanding. CRO
