On February 11, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent out a newsletter with the subject line, “Creating America’s War on Terror.” The message is that the U.S. government is victimizing Muslim Americans under the guise of a made-up war on terrorism. The Islamist terror threat is the creation of a money-seeking FBI. In making its case, CAIR linked to a radio segment on an interfaith-themed radio show.
Since the war on terror began, CAIR and other groups with Muslim Brotherhood origins have depicted it as a war on Islam. Its newsletter linked to a February 7 segment on Interfaith Voices, a radio show carried on over 60 stations across the country.
