The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has been designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates, today included in its "American Muslim News Briefs" mailing an item entitled "CAIR Asks Fox News to Drop Islamophobes." Most of it was made up of the usual smears, lies and distortions that Hamas-linked CAIR pumps out by the gallon. It also contained this:
"Fox News' continued use of Islamophobes, such Steven Emerson and many others like him, only serves to harm the network's reputation and to promote hostility toward Islam and ordinary American Muslims," said CAIR Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia Director Corey Saylor.
He said Fox News continues to utilize the nation's most notorious Islamophobes and Islamophobia enablers — like Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brigitte Gabriel, and Zuhdi Jasser — as regular commentators on issues related to Islam and Muslims.
