Description

This story centers around a new Islamic advocacy organization in Washington called the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and its executive director, Nihad Awad. CAIR - which has ties to the Gaza-based terrorist group Hamas - recently blamed a PBS documentary entitled Jihad in American for vandalism attacks against a pair of mosques. The story shows these charges likely to be false. It also explores Awad's current campaign to make CAIR a major player among Muslim advocacy groups. In fact, as the story finds, Awad was one of three Arab-American leaders who recently met in the White House with Martin Indyk, President Clinton's top Middle East adviser on the National Security Council. (December 22, 1994)
