CAIR Asks Rep. King To Drop Witness Linked To Massacre Group
"Similarly, Sakr's group earned 'a reputation for atrocities' during the Lebanese civil war. Responding to questions about his group's role in the Sabra and Shatila massacres, Sakr said, 'We have the full right to deal with our enemies in Lebanon in the manner we find suitable.'
After raising concerns about another proposed witness and King's unsubstantiated allegations against the American Muslim community, Awad concluded:
"The threat of violent extremism to our nation is a profoundly serious issue. We agree with you that political correctness should not interfere in any serious investigation of threats to our nation. However, we do believe that reliable witnesses and verifiable information are crucial to properly evaluating the threat.
"We therefore respectfully request that you drop Walid Phares as a witness for your planned hearing and reiterate our request that you meet with national leaders of the American Muslim community to discuss the negative impact your hearings could have on ordinary American Muslims."To read the entire letter, go to: http://tinyurl.com/6k46ah5 CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.
