(SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ, 10/14/2019) -- The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned racist and anti-Semitic flyers found on several vehicles parked outside an Evesham Township restaurant.

"The hatred, ignorance and anti-Semitism that these flyers represent has no place in New Jersey and should not be tolerated by its residents and local officials,” said James Sues, executive director of CAIR-NJ. “This painful reminder of the extreme divisiveness that characterizes the current political climate at the national level should prompt us to remain vigilant in investigating and prosecuting hate crimes as they occur.”

He noted that CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims, immigrants and members of other marginalized groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.

La misión de CAIR es proteger las libertades civiles, mejorar la comprensión del Islam, promover la justicia, y empoderar a los musulmanes en los Estados Unidos.
