Islamophobia in the US: Drive-by Shooting Attack on a Muslim Family’s Home in Oklahoma City
FD Editor’s Note: I am not a big fan of C.A.I.R. because they have abandoned too many brothers and sisters in prison in their time of greatest need. They have worked with the F.B.I. on cases that were found to be entrapment cases. And there are some prisoners who they do not support at all. In my opinion they should support every Muslim and let God be the judge. In any case, this article is a must-read.
