CAIR takes up airport discrimination cases

Washington (IINA): The Washington-based Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently dispatched a delegation, led by Nihad Awad, its Director-General, to meet with the American Secretary for Communications, Norman Manta, in order to discuss the question of the discrimination of Arabs and Muslims at airports in the country. The delegation that met the official also included a delegation from the Sikh and Japanese American communities in the US.
Awad presented the Secretary with at least 90 complaints in which Arab and Muslim passengers were subjected to discriminatory searches, starting from the September 11 events in New York and Washington right up to October 22, in addition to the 950 instances of harassment and the violations of civil rights of Arabs and Muslims in various parts of the US.
In a CNN debate in which Awad also took part, it was revealed that 49 percent of Americans approved the idea of having special identification cards issued to Arabs and Muslims, while another 49 percent expressed objection to the idea. Awad said in his objection to the idea that this would remind people of what the Nazis in Germany did to the Jews when they forced them to wear the Star of David emblem wherever they went, or the incarceration of the American Japanese following Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.
Awad also contended that when the Oklahoma incident of 1995 revealed that it was Timothy McVeigh, a White trucker who perpetrated the crime, not every white truck driver was stopped or in any way inconvenienced after that, nor was suggested at the time that all White Americans should carry special IDs.
There are around seven million Muslims in the US, and CAIR is one of the organizations that are in the forefront of serving Muslim causes, with not less than 12 regional offices in the country.
