Auzubillahi Minash Shaitan ir Rajeem

Bismillah ir Rahman ir Rahim
 
Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah wa barkatuhu,
 
 
Please thank CBS for Report on Mistreatment of Palestinians
 Segment shows expanding settlements, evictions, humiliating
checkpoints, 'Apartheid' roads and wall, family imprisoned in their own home
 
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/26/2009) - CAIR today asked American Muslims and
other people who value peace with justice in the Middle East to thank
CBS for last night's "60 Minutes" program that outlined in detail the
injustices suffered by the Palestinian people at the hands of the Israelis.
 
The 13-minute report by journalist Bob Simon showed the damage to the
cause of peace caused by the ever-expanding and illegal Israeli
settlements, the evictions of Palestinians from their homes, the
humiliation experienced at Israeli checkpoints, the 'Apartheid' roads
and wall built by Israel, and the bizarre experience of a Palestinian
family imprisoned in their own home by Israeli soldiers.

"We thank CBS and the producers of '60 Minutes' for having the
courage to show the American people the truth about the injustices
that are at the core of the Middle East conflict," said CAIR
Executive Director Nihad Awad. "The only way to resolve the conflict
and bring peace and stability to the region is to address these
fundamental issues that have been ignored by the world community for
far too long."
 Awad said Muslims should thank CBS because the media are often
criticized for not showing the full picture of the suffering of the
Palestinian people at the hands of the Israelis.
 IMMEDIATE ACTIONS REQUESTED:
 
CONTACT "60 Minutes" - They are getting a lot of "heat" from the
other side. It is important that those who value peace with justice
in the region make the effort to support balanced media coverage.
