The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Michigan is launching a billboard and digital campaign to honor Muslim Americans who’ve served their country and communities following the 9/11 attacks.
Obama’s Domestic Muslim Army On the tragic day of 9/11 our nation was shaken to its core. American Muslims too were a part of that effort to re-strengthen the fabric of our society after that tragic day and were on the front lines in saving lives at Ground Zero and contributing back to society to restore the collective strength and psyche of our nation. (Only ONE first responder was a muslim)
The Remembering Through Service campaign is an initiative launched by CAIR-MI to tell the stories of American Muslims. (But nobody wants to hear about muslims. We hear way too much about them as it is)
Ten years after 9/11 it still goes unnoticed that American Muslims were victims of 9/11 as well as first responder. (Oh yeah, pull out that ‘victim’ card again) The Remembering Through Service campaign is intended to encourage unity, decrease polarity, and to highlight the contributions of American Muslims as productive patriotic citizens who make enormous contributions to our society. American Muslims embrace diversity and have been a part of America for well over 200 years. (NO, they haven’t)
As united Americans we all should work to change the vitriolic narrative of hate and intolerance that has become prevalent in discourse regarding Islam and Muslims in America. (Your actions only cause Americans to hate you more) Working with people of all faiths, our coalition partners, and Muslim organizations, CAIR-MI aims to help dispel stereotypes (accurate portrayals) and misinformation (facts) in order to show the true face of American Muslims. It is our sincere hope that this initiative will encourage more peace and increased unity among all Americans. (Only after we turn this country into an islamic state)
