Dear Friends and Supporters of CAIR-Philadelphia,
CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. Our primary concern is to defend the rights of Muslim Americans, as well as to challenge Islamophobic stereotypes in the media.
There are certain times, however, when the organization feels compelled by what is happening in the world to respond to international events. As we have all watched with horror the accumulating tragedy in Gaza, we believe this is one of those times when the Muslim American community should make its collective voice heard on a matter that it considers of grave importance.
Consequently, we are asking you to participate with thousands of other CAIR friends and supporters around the country in responding to the events in Gaza by writing your elected representatives and demanding that the United States calls for an immediate end to all violence between Israeli and Palestinian forces and a return to the negotiating table as the only mechanism to insure a nonviolent solution bringing peace and justice to Palestine.
