CAIR-NJ Welcomes Mayor Ras Baraka’s Call for an Immediate Ceasefire in Palestine, Calls on NJ Lawmakers to Reevaluate Relationship with Israeli Govt      

(Newark, NJ, 03/01/2024) — The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today welcomed Mayor Ras Baraka (D-NJ) statement calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

In a statement, Mayor Baraka wrote:

“The notion that all Palestinians are terrorists is not only wrong, it’s racist. To justify these deaths by saying everyone in Gaza supports Hamas is equally wrong and disturbing. We urge President Biden to work tirelessly on getting humanitarian aid, food, and water to the people in Gaza. And in my estimation, this work requires an immediate ceasefire.” 

SEE:  Mayor Ras J. Baraka’s Statement on Ceasefire 

The mayor’s statement comes just one week after CAIR-NJ, in collaboration with the Newark Coalition for Palestine, held a rally on the steps of Newark City Hall calling on council members and the mayor to pass a ceasefire in Palestine resolution.

In a statement, CAIR-NJ Advocacy and Community Relations Coordinator Mousa Naji  said: 

“New Jersey has the highest percentage of Muslims across the country, and Newark is home to a sizable Muslim population.

“With his call for a ceasefire in Palestine, Mayor Ras Baraka has shown that he listens to his constituents and understands their grief and pain. He has shown that he sees the sharp rise in anti-Muslim bigotry following Israel’s invasion of the besieged Gaza Strip and has responded accordingly.

“The mayor’s statement comes at an especially pivotal time: the openly genocidal Israeli government has made clear that it will continue to ravage through Gaza and collectively punish Palestinians in the West Bank even as Ramadan — one of the holiest Islamic months — approaches. This is unacceptable, and every mayor of every New Jersey city and township should unequivocally condemn Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza and destruction of civilian hospitals, schools, homes, and all infrastructure.

“A call for a ceasefire is the first step, but a reevaluation of New Jersey’s ties to Israel must be a top priority for all lawmakers in New Jersey.”

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.

CAIR-NJ Welcomes Union City Ceasefire Resolution, Urges Newark Council to Follow Lead   

(NEWARK, NJ, 02/08/2024) – The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) today welcomed Union City passing a ceasefire in Palestine resolution and urged the Newark Council to follow their lead.

At least 48 cities across the U.S. have passed symbolic resolutions calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, with six others passing resolutions advocating more broadly for peace.

SEE: US City Councils Increasingly Call for Israel-Gaza Ceasefire, Analysis Shows 

In a statement, CAIR-NJ Executive Director Selaedin Maksut said:

“Ceasefire resolutions play an important role in confirming what we’ve all known, that a growing number of the American public is vehemently opposed to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza.   

“It is important to see elected officials respond to their constituents, especially as they call for an end to the genocide of their families in Palestine and Gaza, specifically.   

“We hope to see Newark follow the lead of Union City, Paterson, and others and adopt a ceasefire resolution too, making it the biggest city across the state to do so.”

In a statement, North Hudson Islamic Education Center Outreach Director Hamadi Bengabsia said:

“Union City’s Mayor Stack has done what no mayor in Hudson County has done thus far. He felt the pain of his Muslim and Palestinian constituency, and he responded to their call. I am a lifelong area resident and today, I am even more proud of Union City and Mayor Stack. 

“As a state senator representing the 33rd district, we hope to see him push for a ceasefire resolution on the state level too.” 

Israel has killed nearly 28,000 Palestinians in Gaza since October 7 and destroyed all civilian infrastructure, including hospitals and schools.

CAIR-NJ Condemns Congressman Gottheimer for Defamatory, Anti-Muslim Statements

CAIR-NJ Condemns Congressman Gottheimer for Defamatory, Anti-Muslim Statements 

(NEWARK, NJ, 1/29/2024) – The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) today condemned Rep. Josh Gottheimer’s (D-NJ) defamatory and anti-Muslim statements against the organization in a letter obtained by the New York Post.

SEE: NJ school district blasted for partnering with controversial CAIR group 

In the letter, the Congressman said that Teaneck Public Schools’ potential partnership with CAIR-NJ, the leading Muslim civil rights group in New Jersey, is “outrageous and unacceptable,” according to the New York Post.

The Congressman went on to say that CAIR-NJ should not be afforded a pulpit to “promote antisemitism and hatred as part of the Teaneck’s curriculum,” according to the New York Post.

In a statement, CAIR-NJ Executive Director Selaedin Maksut said:

“CAIR and CAIR-NJ have a strong track record of standing against all forms of bigotry, including antisemitism. The Congressman’s accusations are a distraction from the reality that between October 7 and December 31, 2023, we’ve received 157 reports of anti-Muslim bigotry. To contextualize that number, we’ve received 152 reports of anti-Muslim bigotry in all of 2022.

“This dramatic increase in reports is due, in part, to elected officials’ grossly imbalanced and disingenuous statements on Palestine – much like Rep. Gottheimer’s. The Congressman has shown no regard or concern for New Jersey Muslims who, since Israel began its war on Gaza on October 7, have seen a 336 percent increase in anti-Muslim bigotry. He has placed the Muslim community in New Jersey, and within his constituency especially, in direct harm’s way.”

In a statement, CAIR-NJ Civil Rights Attorney Ayah Zaki, Esq. said:

“We’ve been on high alert since October 7, representing Muslims in their workplaces as they experience retaliation and in their academic institutions as they are faced with disciplinary actions simply for supporting Palestinians’ internationally recognized right to freedom. 

“We’ve also partnered with local mosques and community centers across the state to hold Know Your Rights presentations several times a month because what we’re seeing now is very much reminiscent of what we’ve seen in the days and months immediately after 911: a rapid erosion of our civil rights.

“The Congressman’s defamatory attacks on our work and his unfounded accusations of antisemitism are a distraction at best. Our civil rights and legal advocacy work will continue.”

Since October 7, Congressman Gottheimer has made a number of statements and comments about Israel’s war on Gaza and the ensuing protests in New Jersey.

The Congressman accused students at Teaneck High School of antisemitism when they staged a walkout – with the permission and support of Superintendent Dr. Andre Spencer – against Israel’s war on Gaza. In another instance, the Congressman accused Muslim students at Rutgers University of “justifying the rape, murder, beheading, & kidnapping” of Americans, amplifying a long-ago debunked story about “beheaded babies” and playing into dangerous and defamatory anti-Muslim tropes. He also directly encouraged the university to silence these student protesters and violate their First Amendment rights.

The Congressman also used his authority and platform as an elected official to participate in the doxing and bullying of a Ramapo College professor, at a time when doxing and employment retaliation of pro-Palestine advocates is rapidly increasing.

Rep. Gottheimer allegedly made anti-Muslim remarks at a closed-door caucus meeting in mid-October 2023.
