The uproar that resulted in the removal of a Hajj banner at the Muslim American Society of Staten Island, NY is a sign of the “near hysteria” nationwide over anything related to Islam, a spokesman for the Council on Islamic American Relgions (CAIR) said.
(Gee, if the barbaric removal of an innocent Christian grandmother’s head by a Muslim isn’t a cause for anti-Muslim hysteria, what is?)
SI Live “This is unfortunately just one symptom of growing anti-Muslim sentiment in our society, in which any reference to anything to do with Islam or Muslims becomes ‘controversial,'” said Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
“I understand their motivation, they want to be good neighbors,” Hooper said of the MAS decision to remove the sign. But Hooper added, “I don’t think they should have had to take the sign down. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the sign.” (Anything to do with Islam should be removed from America including 2.6 million Muslims)
The red sign that was hung outside of the building at 180 Burgher Ave. contained a picture of a white Saudi Arabian aircraft with Islamic writing.
