Moderate Muslim Group Says "Reason To Worry" About Results From Pew PollTopics: Understanding Islam
As expected, Ibraham Hooper, spokesman for the Islamist-supporting group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group whose "moderate" tag critics have frequently called into question by moderate Muslims and non-Muslims alike, calls the results of the recent Pew poll survey of more than 1,000 American Muslims, "an unfortunate media emphasis on a tiny minority when the overwhelming majority of the Muslim community rejects terrorism and religious extremism."
But Muslims that are in fact moderate, and not like Hooper moderate in claim-only, Muslims like M. Zuhdi Jasser, the chairman of American Islamic Forum for Democracy, contend that there is reason to worry.
