MUSLIM FIRST RESPONDERS STAR IN PSAS

 

By Kevin McCauley

The Council on American-Islamic Relations today unveiled public service announcements featuring a Muslim firefighter and healthcare worker who responded to the World Trade Center attacks as the 9/11 anniversary draws near.

The PSAs, according to the group, are designed to challenge the "growing anti-Muslim bigotry in American society."

That bias is evidenced by some critics lining up against the Islamic cultural center two blocks from the World Trade Center site and the plan of a Florida evangelical to host a bonfire of Korans on 9/11 this month.

The PSAs are themed "9/11 Happened to Us All." Synaptic Digital is handling satellite distribution. They are also available via Synaptic's The NewsMarket unit.

A third PSA stars Muslim, Jewish and Christian clerics talking about common links between the faiths.

Joe Honick (9/07):
There is no question there were Muslims, Jews, Cathlics and atheists in those first responders. The need is to look behnd the CAIR organization itself, not ordinary Muslims.
