RADARSITE: CAIR Statement on Mumbai
CAIR is "the Council on American-Islamic Relations"

CAIR [is] America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, [it] has 35 offices and chapters 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."
The Washington-based group [CAIR] . . . asked the Indian government to protect all its citizens from the type of retaliatory attacks that have taken place following similar incidents in the recent past.
CAIR [makes a] point . . . to urge Indian authorities to protect people from "retaliatory attacks". Of course, that means protecting Muslims in India from retaliatory attacks.
[CAIR's] philosophy seems to be that they can litigate their way to acceptance by the American people in spite of the continuing scourge of Islamic terror. They are mistaken.
